Coconut Oil and Your Thinking


Your probably thinking that I’ve lost the plot completely with the title of this blog post, and you may be right. However, as what I do is all about the connection between the mind and body, I am very interested in physical as well as mental health. So, what’s the connection between coconut oil and your thinking I hear you ask?

For most people right now, probably nothing.

Yet this article will put a very different slant on most people’s perception of that, at the moment, tenuous connection.

You see coconut oil — although being a saturated fat — is quite different from most other saturated fats. Most (96%) of the other saturated fats have a molecular structure that is made up of what are called long chain fatty acids.

On the other hand..

Coconut oil is a saturated fat that has a unique molecular structure that is made up of MEDIUM chain fatty acids. Where LONG chain fatty acids are stored in the human body as fat deposits (and incur all the associated health risks)…

MEDIUM chain fatty acids instead, are immediately processed by the liver to produce energy (they do NOT get stored as body fat).

MEDIUM chain fatty acids, when ingested, also have a thermodynamic effect on the body — i.e., they raise your body’s metabolism. In other words, coconut oil (as a medium chain fatty acid) is absorbed and utilised by the human body in a completely different and better (health-beneficial) way than other saturated fats that contain long chain fatty acids.

But so what?

What has that got to do with your thinking?

Well, in a way the way you think can be very much like either the medium chain fatty acids that are found in coconut oil, or the long chain fatty acids of the other 96% of saturated fats. Thinking in the way a medium chain fatty acid works means that you observe, experience, absorb and process in your mind in far different and better ways than many other people out there do. You won’t attract negativity in thoughts, people, behaviours, emotions, feelings that drag you down, make you feel like shit and affect your physical and mental health….

Instead you will feel positively, think positively, behave positively, experience positive emotions and attract positive people that you enjoy being with, learning from and sharing knowledge and experience with.

Whereas negative thinking runs the massive risk of clogging up your mind with “negative fat”; positive thinking and thoughts “cut out all the unhealthy (useless) fat” and fire up your mind to work in better, more efficient ways that enhance your life right across the board.

That is why my therapy practice and my training company are doing so well. I apply the principles I teach people on my courses and in therapy to myself, so in essence I am my own proof that changing the way you think works.

My courses have been run in a wide variety of countries now about to head to Central America which is a big achievement for ANY training organisation.

I’m also working on developing home-study programs to make life easier for those who can not travel to the locations that I run courses.

Something to think about when you are considering where to go to get a “healthy dose” of energising hypnosis and coaching training.

Have a brilliant day

Simon 🙂
