Actually, coconut does have healing properties...
Healing Fats: Fats are incredibly important for the health of the intestinal tract. Coconut and coconut oil
are especially healing and contain unique medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs). Unlike other fatty acids,
MCFAs are absorbed directly from the intestines and sent straight to the liver, where they are mostly
burned as fuel. The anti-inflammatory and healing effects of coconut oil play a role in soothing
inflammation and healing injury in the digestive tract. Its antimicrobial properties also affect intestinal
health by killing troublesome microorganisms.7 Butyric acid, another special fatty acid found only in
milk fat like butter and ghee (clarified butter), is the primary fuel for the colonic walls. Supplementation
of butyric acid has been shown to improve the function and integrity of the intestine.8 Finally, vitamin D,
which is found in fatty foods like egg yolks, butter, and cod liver oil, is important to colon health; a lack
of this nutrient may contribute to constipation and other colon disorders.3
