My name is Kirk Smith and in the past year I have become a big fan of coconuts and coconut products. Around a year ago I was going through some minor health ailments that started to concern me in case they became major. After having hernia surgery in the spring of 2013 I was going through on and off groin issues. My prior job required strenuous lifting which did not help the issues. I would also have some on and off joint pain in my elbows and knees.
Being fairly young I became a bit concerned. My doctors would prescribe me some anti-inflammatory medication but I only saw that as a temporary solution. I did some online research to seek out some natural remedies. I eventually came across a video blogger whom recommended using coconut oil for both cooking, baking and even smoothies.
When I decided to implement coconut oil into my diet my life slowly changed for the better. I have little to no groin or joint pain. I even feel more energized in the beginning of the day. I have even implemented other coconut products, such as coconut water or coconut milk. My recent job has even given me the opportunity to sample fresh coconut meat which I find delicious!
I look forward to sharing my experiences and opinions with all things involving coconut and I hope to hear some interesting ideas from you guys as well!
