Coconut Oil is Good for You

Of course most people know coconut oil is great for their skin! I use it as a natural sun screen as I live in Hawaii and enjoy surfing when its nice and warm!

I also use it for cooking also, I stopped using vegetable oil as I felt it could be an irritant. Coconut oil does the trick ! It has a lower burning temperature  than other oils. Meaning I cook the food slower on a lower heat when I use coconut oil.

I use it to bake with also, things tend to come out different that they do if you use conventional oil.  But I feel that they taste much better. Just my opinion of course.

I have used it to heal my teeth also. I would take a a glob of coconut oil and switch it around for a few minutes. It really seemed to speed up the healing process in my mouth and took away most of the soreness after while.

Yes many of the sites that I see lay claim to the amazing benefits of eating the oil everyday. We feed it to our dogs they enjoy it, we also apply it to their coats and belly.  It anti bacterial and very soothing to the skin.

I also like to as essential oils to coconut oil.  I like to ad a few drops of lemon grass to coconut oil for muscle strains it really works well!

In fact over the years I have tried many different carriers for essential oils and have found coconut oil to be the best for me!

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Relief (Kombucha)

Aloha It me Rik

Kombucha is instant relief to any stomach ache and a healthy alternative to soda!

Filled with probiotics that your body needs to remain healthy!

I wanted to write this article about Irritable Bowel Syndrome with the intention that it would help alot of

people find some relief if they are having issues with their digestion.

For me I have been struggling with these issues for almost 10 years. I was struck by lightning and after this trauma

I started having issues with certain foods that I had always loved!

Yes I attempted to stay away from the foods that I enjoyed and only ate them when I really thought I wanted to!

I really wanted my health back and it seemed like it all stemmed from my gut.

Almost all of my life I knew about organic food and I was raised on it.

Being almost 60 now I became aware of so called health food in my 20s although we grew an organic garden

and just called it good food!

How do you know of you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome ?

Well it took me many years to figure it out for myself.

But it all came down to the foods I was normally eating did not make me feel good anymore.

SO one by one I started to eliminate the foods that I felt were making me feel ill!

#1. Refined Sugar-  Its in almost everything . I use agave, coconut sugar honey but I stopped eating any candy.

#2. Milk – I stopped all milk and almond milk products-I use Hemp milk-Rice milk-Oat milk Yes I feel much better without milk!

#3. Wheat- I love homemade bread and my wife made it for 30 years with wheat flour. She still makes bread but I dont eat it if it has wheat in it!

#3. Certain fruits- OK I bought a banana farm in Hawaii well it has 100s of banana plants on it because I love them.  At the moment I dont eat them ;-(


OK Not to be discourage  These are the foods that I avoid at the moment. I feel much better of course!

Yes its challenging

One of the most helpful things that I have learned to to drink Kombucha everyday!


It contains so many beneficial bacteria’s, enzymes and vitamins that will give you so much relief for your Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

I have never really met a person that does not want to feel better!

Kombucha tastes great and you can get it almost anywhere.

I posted the type of Kombucha that I order from Amazon!

Its tastes better than any soda pop and Kombucha is much better for you!

If you have a stomach ache just drab a bottle of Kombucha and you will find instant relief.

I hope you  have found this article helpful.

To your health and wellbeing!

Says so right on the bottle!

Organic Pumpkin Pie My Favorite

Organic Pumpkin Pie has always been one of my favorite deserts! I even eat it for breakfast its so good! As you may be aware of pumpkin is a squash and is a highly nutrient dense food. Packed full of vitamins and minerals. There are lots of creative ways you can add pumpkin to your diet, including desserts, soups, salads, preserves and even as a substitute for butter.

Pumpkin is one of the best-known sources of beta-carotene, a very powerful antioxidant. Besides that I like pumpkin pie! Its good for you as long as you dont use to much sugar to make it. I use coconut sugar or Agave this make it low Glycemic. Meaning that you wont get the sugar rush! Its seems good to make pumpkin pie with out white sugar. I think it tastes much better if you use an alternative.

Viva Labs Organic Coconut Sugar: Non-GMO, Low-Glycemic Sweetener, 6 lbs Bag

Features: Low-Glycemic Sweetener – coconut sugar adds richness to recipes but has a lower glycemic score than table sugar, making it suitable for those following a restricted diet, 1:1 Ratio – coconut sugar makes an excellent replacement to refined white sugar spoon-for-spoon, cup-for-cup for all of your baking and cooking needs. This tasty addition adds sweetness to coffee or tea without the sugar spike., Mild Caramel Flavour – the subtle, yet delectable caramel flavor of coconut sugar offers a unique variation from common household sweeteners. Aesthetically, it is comparable to brown and cane sugar, with no comparison in taste and quality., Rich Nutritional Content – unlike nutrients lost during the refinement of white sugar, Viva Labs Coconut Sugar is a rich source of potassium, calcium, zinc, iron and B vitamins, contributing to a well-balanced diet., Viva Labs Organic Coconut Sugar is naturally sourced from the sap of sustainably-grown and non-GMO coconut palm trees, eliminating the presence of pesticides, chemicals and other harmful ingredients.
What is Coconut Sugar?
Unlike table sugar, coconut sugar is unrefined, maintaining all the nutritional elements that are frequently destroyed during industrial processing. Derived from the sap of the coconut palm tree, coconut sugar boasts many of the same health-promoting properties as other coconut products. This mineral-rich sweetener is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth with no guilty consequence.

Organic Coconut Sugar: A Healthy Sugar Alternative

Coconut Sugar is a low-glycemic sweetener that has been shown to support healthy blood sugar balance. A study published by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute compared the glycemic indexes of both coconut sugar and table sugar on a scale of 100, indicating a value of 35 and 60, respectively. Viva Labs Organic Coconut Sugar is a one-to-one ratio with table sugar, helping you to achieve the same sweetness without the corresponding sugar spike.

Because coconut sugar is unrefined, it maintains essential nutrients like calcium, potassium, iron and zinc. A study published by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute indicated that coconut sugar had roughly double of the amount of iron compared to ordinary table sugar in a 100g serving.

The Viva Labs Difference
To produce Viva Labs’ Organic Coconut Sugar, local farmers “tap” the unopened flowers of coconut palm trees, oozing with sweet coconut nectar. Prior to heating, the sap is poured through a strainer, ensuring all waste matter is removed. Viva Labs processes the sap immediately after collection, obtaining a better quality sugar and sweet flavor. The sap then undergoes a reduction process under heat, evaporating unwanted moisture, leaving you with pure, granulated organic coconut sugar.
