While there are many scientific documents
that show the health benefits of tropical oils, we tend to look
at the oils from a more holistic standpoint. In our opinion, the
oils are "whole foods" that serve important functions
in our overall health and well-being. While we believe in superfoods,
miracle oils, and healing properties, we also know that health and
longevity come from a variety of factors such as exercise and diet.
In addition, we feel many factors such as pesticides, pollution,
and processed foods have a devastating effect on not only our health,
but the health of the planet. Truthfully, it seems that as a culture
we rely too heavily on modern medicine and science to fix the symptoms
and not address the root of the problem. In our direct experience,
it has been a combination of healthy lifestyle practices that ultimately
delivered the greatest health benefits.
We have spent many hours reading and studying
the research on tropical oils, and we believe the following books
offer the best and most reliable discussions on their benefits.
