In order to pick the best type of yogurt to use for treatment we need to use simple deductive reasoning, and let go of good for you stereotypes and mythology.
The first myth I will need to debunk is that fat is bad for you, and causes individuals to become fat or diseased. In the eighties a myth went out that fat is bad for you, clear rational scientific evidence has since proved this information to be unhealthy. The fat is bad for you myth was predicated upon the false data that people ate so much fat, a simplified statement fat is bad for you, would cause individuals to reduce fat intake to a healthy level.
The truth, fat is a necessary part of a healthy diet.
Second myth, all saturated fat is unhealthy. It has since been discovered that some saturated fats are healthy choices. Coconut oil is a healthy saturated fat. Dr. Mercola said in his article coconut oil is good for you, ’ Coconut oil has actually been shown to help optimize body weight, which can dramatically reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes (8). Besides weight loss, boosting your metabolic rate will improve your energy, accelerate healing and improve your overall immune function.’ Read my up coming article on coconut oil for more information on that.
Now we will get a little closer to yogurt with myth number two, myth number two, saturated dairy fat is bad for you.
The truth, as American began substituting modern trans fats for dairy fat our health has deteriorated. Both butter and coconut oil contain lauric acid, which actually improves our health. Additionally, since most of my readers are women. Organic dairy fat boost our natural fertility. Please leave a message below this article if you interested in the many health benefits of butter. Dairy fat is known to kill fungus, and fight candida.
‘At the turn of our century, heart disease in America was rare. By 1960, it was our number one killer. Yet during the same time period, butter consumption had decreased - from eighteen pounds per person per year, to four.’ Sited from Why Butter is Better http://www.westonaprice.org/foodfeatures/butter.html
Which type of yogurt is best for the Cherry Lola treatment? Since the purpose of the treatment is to provide moisture, soothe the cuticles, and kill unhealthy pathogens on the scalp, it should be obvious. The fat in all dairy products is known as cream. Butter is cream with a large amount of water removed; ghee is butter with most water removed. Cream kills fungus. Fungus retards hair growth. Fat is a natural emollient, and provides a balance to the high protein content in yogurt. Therefore please use an organic full fat yogurt with the least amount of ingredients. Yogurt is cream with active beneficial bacterial all other ingredients are fillers.
