San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2015
Zion Health is proud to announce its African Mongongo Body Butter in White Coconut scent, now available at Nature’s Food Patch located at 1225 Cleveland Street in Clearwater, FL 33755. The Mongongo seed comes from the Mongongo tree found from coast to coast in Southern Africa. The nuts are often gathered from elephant dung, a practice that is less labor intensive than harvesting the fruit and extracting the nut from the center. Mongongo fruit and nuts are commonly consumed by local people in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola, Mozambique and Malawi and are a staple food amongst the San bushmen of northern Botswana and Namibia. The nuts are cold-pressed to produce the Mongongo oil.
This unique African oil is beneficial for topical use because of its content of linoleic acid (between 30% and 54%), the derivatives of which synthesized by the body form part of the composition of cell membranes. Mongongo oil therefore has hydrating, regenerating and restructuring properties due to the presence of eleostearic acid which reacts rapidly with UV light producing polymerization.
Traditional African healing is a holistic approach to medicine involving indigenous herbalism and African spirituality based on the premise of interconnectedness. Disease is understood to be a misalignment or spiritual/social disorder either internal or external. It is believed that all people are made up of many levels of being which function together as a whole; moral, social, physical and spiritual, and if any of these parts are out of balance, the person will become physically ill (dis-eased) or suffer spiritually. It is the role of the physician to re-align the patient with the origin of the influences so as to re-balance the disorder (dis-order).
Diagnosis is reached through spiritual means and a treatment is prescribed, usually consisting of an herbal remedy that is considered to have not only healing abilities but also symbolic and spiritual significance. Forms of treatment include but are not limited to: surgery, dietary therapy, herbalism, psychotherapy, aromatherapy, exorcism, rituals and sacrifice. African culture acknowledges that real healing lies, not in a synthetic pill but in recognition of our true position on the earth and in bringing our actions into respectful balance with the natural world. Approximately 60%-80% of the people in Africa rely on traditional remedies to treat themselves for various diseases.
