A subclinical infection is an infection that can’t be detected by conventional medicine, but can wear you out and finally get you. It is an infection, and any infection is serious.
Antibiotics don’t seem to affect a subclinical infection. I had subclinical infection for years. I would spit up mucous four or five times a day just as if I had a chronic cold. No doctor could help me, nor did antibiotics or anything else.
I now live 40 yards from the ocean, and I have several coconut trees. I began to drink a few glasses of coconut water (juice) each day straight from fresh coconuts. Voilà, my long-term subclinical infection cleared up completely!
Here is what I have learned about coconut water: It carries oxygen and other nutrients, like potassium, to the body and helps to cleanse the digestive system. It is naturally low in carbohydrates, sodium and sugar. It is also 99 percent fat-free and has no cholesterol.
Studies have shown coconut water can help cool you down on a hot day and actually help you retain proper body temperature. It can also help replenish fluids lost after exercise.
According to nutritionists, drinking coconut water can help raise your metabolism, improve the levels of good cholesterol in your blood and even help you lose weight.
Studies have shown coconut water can boost your immune system and help the body fight off viruses like herpes and the flu. It helps maintain normal kidney function and can alleviate heartburn and sluggish digestion in pregnant women.
Coconut water is more nutritious than whole milk and has less fat and no cholesterol. It is more healthful than orange juice and has fewer calories. It is better than processed baby milk. It contains lauric acid, which is present in human mother’s milk.
Coconut water is naturally sterile. Water permeates through the filtering husk. Coconut water is a universal donor. It is identical to human blood plasma. Coconut water is a natural isotonic beverage, the same level that we have in our blood. During World War II, in the Pacific theater, both sides in the conflict regularly used coconut water siphoned directly from the nut to give emergency plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers.
Coconut water is the very stuff of nature, biologically pure, full of natural sugars, salts and vitamins to ward off fatigue, and is the next wave of energy drinks. It contains more potassium than most sports and energy drinks and has less sodium and more natural sugars than sports drinks.
When you buy coconut water, make sure it is not pasteurized. Health food stores have coconut water, and several sites on the Internet do as well.
