MALARIA LESSON #7: Lauric Acid when in the human body it will form into monolaurin. It has broad antimicrobial properties. lauric acid is a malaria fighter!

WHERE DO YOU FIND LAURIC ACID?: Cold-pressed coconut oil (we need Eldons Supermarkets to start carrying this product for us), dried coconut (can be found Eldons), coconut milk (can be found in Eldons), bitter melon (dont know where if available on the island).

SO i have been drinking a glass of coconut milk each day during my malaria recovery and it will become part of my daily diet from here on in for sure.

Please be sure to check with AT YOUR SERVICE for your pre-arrival grocery shopping needs. I have lived here 8 years now and never had it until this past month. so no one is immune to it, it only takes one mosquito bite to do it and I got one.

Roatan Malaria Lesson #5

MALARIA LESSON #5: A study that was published in the Tropical Journal of Pharmaceutical Research stated that “Oxidative stress has shown to play an important role in the development of anaemia in malaria. Indeed, the increase in total antioxidant status has also shown to be important in the recovery from malaria. ”

so where do you find antioxidants? acai berries are rich in antioxidants and also are a great immune booster (there is Acai berry juice at Eldons Supermarkets. A strong immune system is the best fighter against any kind of infectious disease. If you have no actual acai berries or acai juice, there is a freeze dried powder that you can order on line.
