2) Kapruka coconut oil

Virgin coconut oil is fast becoming popular as cooking oil in the west. As in Asia, the oil is used for everyday cooking, frying and baking with a myriad of health benefits. Besides speeding up your metabolism and strengthening the immune system it also gives instant energy due to the way the oil is metabolized in the body. Virgin Coconut oil also helps to control cholesterol and do not form Trans fats when heated. Kapruka virgin coconut oil has a very mild coconut aroma which lingers pleasantly in mildly flavoured products like mushrooms and compliments well seasoned dishes without leaving a distinct coconut taste. It is highly recommended for growing children, sportsmen and women, the health conscious and those wanting to loose weight. The oil also has a cosmetic aspect to it and is excellent for massaging and as a pre-wash hair conditioner. It is extensively used in Ayurvedic medicine due to the anti viral, bacterial and fungal properties of the specific fatty acid composition of the oil.

The oil is available in 200ml and 500ml jars and can be ordered online for R35 and R70 respectively. It is also available in selected health shops and delis.

4) Body Talk

The body consists of millions of cells that are constantly communicating to keep your body healthy. When you experience stress, communication is weakened, leading to a decline in health. During a Body Talk session the practitioner uses muscle testing to identify weakened energy circuits and locate imbalances. A gentle tapping procedure initiates the restoration of communication to enable the body to heal and effectively respond to injury and illness. The tapping ensures that the body “remembers” these changes after the treatment, so improvement is long lasting, not merely symptomatic relief.  Body Talk is natural health care that is safe, non-invasive and requires no diagnosis.  Clients show improvements with arthritis, headaches, allergies, back pain, emotional disorders, infections, digestive disorders, endocrine disorders and a lot more.

Be sure to catch Dr John Veltheim, founder of BodyTalk who will be visiting SA and giving a public talk on 27 April 2010. /
