Hundreds of scientific studies now confirm that minerals, plant-based medicines and even foods that you already have in your kitchen are just as effective as pharmacological options when it comes to healing you.

Here are a few that are beneficial for your entire body:

Coconut Oil – Research suggests that coconut oil may play a role in weight loss thanks to its medium-chain triglycerides, which tend to be burned for energy instead of stored. Try working a teaspoon or so into your daily diet. It also makes a great moisturizer, simply massage it into your skin.

Coffee – Next to water, coffee is the healthiest beverage you can drink according to Chris Kilham, founder of Medicine Hunter, Inc. “Data shows that its antioxidant content enhances heart health and reduces the risk for many cancers [including breast and colon] and neurodegenerative disorders, like Parkinson’s disease.” In addition, a 2011 Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry study found that every cup you drink lowers your risk of type 2 diabetes by 7 percent. If you have high blood pressure or suffer from anxiety or insomnia, switch to decaf.

Curcumin – Derived from turmeric root, curcumin has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation more effectively than ibuprofen and naproxen, without the risk for liver and kidney damage. It may also offer relief for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and headaches, and help treat depression, asthma and psoriasis. Take 1-3 grams daily.
