About Us

Hello World!

It's Elizabeth and Dominic here, and together with our son we are 'TheCocoHut'.

We strive for a healthy, balanced, positive, non-toxic lifestyle which incorporates real food and natural living while having lots of fun and eating lots of coconuts along the way! What's with Coconut's you may ask? Coconuts are a HUGE part of our diet and lifestyle and they have had a profound impact on our health. Back in 2010 Elizabeth was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. Crohn's Disease is an inflammatory bowel disease. It most commonly affects the lower small intestine (ileum) and the large intestine (colon), but may involve any part of the digestive tract from the mouth to the anus. The inflammation extends through the entire thickness of the bowel wall. As well as inflammation Elizabeth had ulcers throughout her colon, both of which caused severe abdominal pain, diarrhoea and a range of many other nasty symptoms.

After being told by many Medical Doctors (General Practitioners and Gastroenterologist's) that there is no cure for Crohn's Disease, Elizabeth made it her mission to educate herself about Crohn's Disease, using food as medicine and alternative treatment. After A LOT of research and trials on herself with Food and Health, Elizabeth CURED her Crohn's Disease. (Find out how by reading the blog post 'About me/Why this Blog?')

In 2012 we were so excited that Elizabeth had cured her Crohn's Disease that we wanted to share her story and the products that helped her and so we decided to start an online business based around the Coconut Products which we personally used. We called ourselves 'TheCocoHut' as it resembles the Coconut products we sold. Back in 2012 Coconut Oil and Coconut Water were not as widespread and well known in our society, so our small online business was quite unique. By 2014-2016 Coconut Oil and Coconut Water was a BOOMing industry and a household name. The market became too competitive for a small online business who were just trying to help others out while still working our day jobs. We couldn't keep up with the GIANT supermarket leaders who were pricing us out. So late 2015 and early 2016 we sold out what stock we had left and then kept our website up for educational purposes to teach the world about the health and healing benefits of coconuts and to hopefully reach out to as many people as we could to let them know that Crohn's Disease IS CUREABLE!

In 2015 Elizabeth started studying a Bachelor of Health Science Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine Degree while simultaneously working as a High School Teacher. She had the passion to learn more about food and educate herself of the science behind how she healed herself and how our bodies actually work.

2015 - 2016 Elizabeth was pregnant with our first child. Due to her history of Crohn's Disease Doctors recommended that she have extra scans and blood tests to keep a closer eye on her and the baby. Results from all tests = Both are PERFECTLY HEALTHY human beings. (STILL NO Crohn's Disease!)

Fast-forward to 2017 we would like to continue to share our health journey, knowledge, experience and health tips which we have learned, as we sincerely want to help others. We also have an exciting new chapter to start. We have discovered the AMAZING beneficial uses of Essential Oils and we absolutely LOVE them and include essential oils into our daily lives. We love them and want to share them so much that we have expanded our business so we are now Independent Distributors of Young Living Essential Oils and their natural products. This year our goal is to start a YouTube Chanel to share, demonstrate and show you what we do in our home with Coconuts, Recipes and Young Living essential oils to live a chemical free, natural, simple lifestyle.

Elizabeth continues to study a Bachelor of Health Science Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine Degree and loves being a mummy.

Dominic continues to be a supportive husband and daddy and is the best at opening Fresh Coconuts.

We hope you and your family get to LOVE Coconuts and Young Living Essential Oils and Products as much as we do and hope they bring you as much happiness and joy as they have to us.

Please come and join us on our journey :)

To Great Health!
