Victoria Herbal Soap Granules Helps The Body Get Rid of Toxins

In our stress and toxin-filled world, coconut oil has emerged as a health supplement of choice because it helps the body get rid of harmful substances, according to Dr. Rommel Tinio of the Health Asia Medical Clinic in Makati. A proponent of Integrative Medicine or the combination of both Western and alternative medicine, Tinio explains that when taken orally coconut oil contains both lauric and capric acid which has antibiotic, antibacterial, antiviral, and antiprotozoal elements.


When it comes into contact with the skin, coconut oil is converted into sodium laureate "which the body can deal with," says Tinio. It does not clog up the pores, unlike petroleum-based mineral oil. In addition, the lauric and capric acids in coconut oil – and all their accompanying benefits – are also absorbed by the skin.


Unfortunately, Filipinos have yet to make full use of coconut oil and its many byproducts despite its abundance in their midst. One particularly useful product is Victoria Herbal Soap Granules which contains no inorganic chemicals and is considered a natural herbal product manufactured by Daila Herbal Community Enterprises.

Victoria Herbal Soap Granules has been warmly accepted in the US and Europe because of the curative properties associated with coconut oil, its main ingredient. Clothes washed with Victoria Herbal Soap Granules made from natural herbal products like coconut oil will not harm the skin, says Dr. Tinio.


In fact, he advocates its use together with exercise and a diet that uses as few chemicals as possible. Decreasing our overall intake of chemicals - through what we eat, breathe and allow to come in contact with our skin - is a great antidote to many chronic ailments, he says. These include hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, ovarian problems, and heart diseases which have become pervasive fixtures of urban life. More specifically, decreasing one's consumption of meat and processed food while increasing one's intake of raw vegetables ought to be a key strategy for healthy living, says Dr. Tinio.


He also advocates the use of coconut oil for cooking because it is converted immediately by the body into energy, hastening the burning of body fat. One must also be vigilant about the chemicals he or she ingests through the detergent one uses on clothes. Many detergents contain harmful toxins such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), the synthetic form of lauric acid used as a wetting agent that produces bubbles in detergents. It is the same ingredient used in making car and garage floor cleaners and engine degreasers. Clothes, especially synthetic fiber, washed in detergents containing SLS can alter the electromagnetic polarity of the skin - either by repelling, changing, or absorbing electric currents. If the skin absorbs more electric current, it is more likely to become irritated and inflamed, warns Dr. Tinio.
