I use coconut oil with my

I use coconut oil with my food and also rely on olive oil. Since, my mental acuity has increased. If my mind is groggy, I'll take a teaspoon of olive oil. Yum!

A general principle to follow

A general principle to follow regarding your health is that your body is designed to function and repair itself so feed it natural things and avoid the unnatural things. Live naturally, move around, walk, think positively to reduce stress, etc. The medical model of "trust me I'm a doctor" I do not trust since the great physician is who created our bodies.

The major killers are chronic diseases. These disease are almost all preventable and fixable by removing stressers and living a healthier lifestyle.

Gives this song new meaning :o)

Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one, she paid it for a lime.
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she called the doctor, woke him up,
And said, "Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?
I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"
"Now let me get this straight ",
Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up
Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up .....(cont)

There really is magic in that song...ahead of it's time I guess

Cocconut Oil and Vitamin C sounds like great medicine!

Put the lime in the coconut, you such a silly woman!,
Put the lime in the coconut, drink them both together,
Put the lime in the coconut, then you feel better.
Put the lime in the coconut, drink them both down
Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning
Woo Woo, ain't there nothin' you can take, I say
Woo Woo, to relieve my belly ache,

Thanks for the fun song!

Great Video, If It Works.

We'll try coconut oil, thanks Emalvini.

My wife works as an care giver for old people.

beesting

Our Vitamin D is in drop form the basis of which is COCONUT OIL

The kids and I take it and I think it is good stuff. 2,000 IU a drop.

;-)

We Just Sent An E-mail To Coconut Land.

I'd really like to start a coconut oil export/import business.....

Beesting, I Use Organic Coconut Oil...

Take 1 Tablespoon twice a day for over all general health.

For me, it has lowered my Triglycerides,(it's 75, normal levels are < 196) glucose levels (it's 82, normal is between 60 and 115) and for those wanting to lose weight, it helps significant weight lose, even if you maintain you normal diet (2 tablespoons, twice per day)

Oh, one more thing, it raises your Happy Fat (HDL) and lowers your Lousy fat or (LDL)

Watch the cheeseburgers and the milk shakes. They are killers! Once in awhile is ok..

Just sayin...

My question is...

If coconut oil works because of the resulting ketone uptake in the brain, then wouldn't a ketogenic diet aka atkins, protien power or whatever, work even better?

Ketogenic diets have long been used for children with epilepsy and chronic seizures.

A ketogenic diet also has long been used to treat diabetes and insulin resistance.

A ketogenic diet has helped those with irritable bowl syndrome (and all the related bowl diseases)

Also, would a ketogenic diet be better for test taking? Does it help concentration or the quickness of the brain?

someone should study this

Just on a personal note,

read my comment below. I have also been giving my husband protein powder for the diabetes... gotta read labels carefully, though. Lots of crap in some of that stuff. Protein does help lower blood sugar, but it didn't do anything for the dementia, at least as far as I could tell. Now I use both organic coconut oil and protein powder and he is almost back to being the man I fell in love with and he is healthier and happier than he's been in a couple of years! Coconut oil does work and you will see a positive difference in just a few days.

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

There Are Many Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

Coconut is a top miracle food according to Ancient Medicine Food Healing. It is actually one of the most ancient foods available to humans which could explain why coconut has so many health benefits - a matter of human evolution and adaptation to the environment. The amazing results that are recognized with coconut oil demonstrates the fact that mother nature's medicine is in the food, and the most superior medicine on this planet. Don't ever let the medical industry fool you into thinking man made medicine is better, because it's not. Western Medicine will typically give people quick results, but it's really only good for emergencies, and generally causes more health problems in the long run. The only way to really safeguard one's health for the long term is to go back to what has worked since humans began. Go back to the food and evaluate what one is eating, there lies the answers. To learn more about food healing in general try this site, http://qirevolution.com/food-healing.aspx

Here's another article I found about Coconut which also mentions Alzheimer's:
"The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, dental care, and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial and soothing properties.
Coconut oil is used extensively in tropical countries especially India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Phillipines etc, which have a good production of coconut oil. The oil was also once popular in western countries such as United States and Canada; however, there was a strong propoganda in 1970s spread by the corn oil and soy oil industry against coconut oil. Coconut oil was considered harmful for the human body due to its high saturated fat content till the last decade (2000s) when people started questioning this propoganda. Let us get into some details of how coconut oil works for our body.
...Coconut Oil and Alzheimer's Disease: There are reports of research conducted by Dr. Newport stating that coconut oil is useful for treating Alzheimer's disease. Apart from this there is no scientific evidence or traditional knowledge or coconut oil being used for treating Alzheimer's. It was also not known traditionally that coconut oil helps in the brain function..."

It does work!!!!

Someone posted a similar article and video about this doctor and her husband a couple of months ago. My husband was showing signs of dementia and early stage Alzheimers, and after reading the post I thought, "coconut oil can't hurt him; it may not work but, it can't hurt him", so I tried it. It's been over two months, with increasing doses from 2 tablespoons a day to 5 to 6 tablespoons full spread out during the day, and I can tell you IT DOES WORK! His mind is coming back and he isn't getting brain fog anymore.

I checked with my niece, who is an organic chemist, and she told me she never heard of using coconut oil for Alzheimers but, that chemically, it makes sense and encouraged me to give it a try, as long as I give her uncle ORGANIC coconut oil. I notified our doctor about what I was doing and emailed him the video. He's not big on natural cures but, he goes along with things I sometimes find, as long as it doesn't do any harm.... like a certain vitamin B formula for diabetic neuropathy that worked far, far better than the big pharma drug he prescribed.

In fact, both of these natural cures are working so well that I have them on auto ship every month.

good post there emalvini and

the video is missing a part of the problem. A big part. The doctors are not needed. Unless you have a major malfunction and need their emergency help. And notice they show VCO (virgin coconut oil) added to the Quaker Oats. The problem? The Oats. Grains contain gluten and mycotoxins that prevent the uptake of minerals within the same meal.

We have been told that running on ketones is bad and that running on carbs is better. However the ketones are glucose made from fats (like in VCO) and protein and it is made when the body needs it. Most folks eat high carbs and there is too much sugar in the blood and insulin is dispatched to bring it down because sugar is bad for the body.

Near the end of the video they mention a "better" way in the form of ketone ester and they need millions of dollars to make it work. Ha Ha. Why wait for the expensive lab stuff when you can eat VCO now and for cheap. But of course it protects their jobs and they need funding.

VCO is excellent. The cholesterol they mention could be a ruse too. Our body creates cholesterol as it needs it to make repairs. We panic and visit a doctor and they give us drugs to lower our cholesterol (which rarely if ever works) and causes more problems which they are happy to give another drug for.

Alzheimer's is just one of many (civilized maladies) that can be helped (cured) by real food.

To summarize we should eat natural foods high in fat, moderate protein and low, low carbs and the body will use it all where needed to bring our health back.

Thanks again for the post and video. I needed a laugh.

Thank you!!

My better half and I switched to Organic Virgin coconut oil about a month ago (GNC carries it) I knew that it was good for us but had no idea that it was this important in your diet. My understanding is that our brain is 75% saturated fat and that alot of people are avoiding ALL fats because of out of date studies. Some fats can be bad but fats like coconut oil feed the brain and the fat needs of your body. Thanks for posting, this is amazing!!

Virgin coconut oil is the best.

Check out Tropical Traditions. They brought back the traditional method of separating the oil from the meat of the coconut using fermentation instead of the conventional method of using chemical solvents.

It is good for brain fog, regardless of severity

SSRIs scrambled my brains pretty thoroughly and it was a long recovery with many elements contributing, but the coconut oil was one of the most profound aids. I buy organic and put it in fruit smoothies - a couple tablespoons. On days when I feel "foggy" the difference is notable within about 15 minutes. Additional benefits have included healthier hair and skin. It is good stuff. A local in Belize told us the coconut is the Grandfather, and he takes care of us.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

hey fishyculture

It's the high sugar fruit smoothie causing the brain fog. Fruit is way high in sugar and fiber and fiber is not good. Know why? We are not cows with multiple stomachs for fermenting fiber into usable nutrients. Let me know if you wish an idea for a better smoothie. One that will nourish you instead of jack you up and then crash you.

And removing sugars and slowly increasing high quality fats and moderate protein and decreasing carbs will chelate out all the damage done by SSRIs. And heal the reason you took them in the first place. The SSRIs are given by doctors that still think that a drug will heal an organic being. You. Another perfect example of the racket known as the medical community.

The doctor is in Fishy. In you.

Thanks

I'll hear you out, although I am already onto to juicing. I don't use a ton of fruit, and I use raw milk which I find helps my digestion. But I am always looking for ways to do better - whatcha got?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

i didn't use a ton of fruit either

but too much I found out. I could survive on fruit and nuts. Found out that fruit is high in sugar and nuts are hard too digest. My digestion and elimination suffered. I'm not going to argue that it all didn't taste good. That high we get after carbs quickly fades and it's difficult to look at it logically when under the influence.

Theory is that high quality fats (like coconut oil and butter) and moderate protein (animal) and low carbs will allow the body to chelate out all that is foreign to it. Via pee and poop and sweat and even through pimples, dandruff and rashes.

Raw milk is healthy for a healthy person but it is high in sugar and it does contain the lactase for digesting the lactose present in milk. I really like raw grass fed cream and milk but I leave it alone yet as it does make me constipated.

Here is what I have found to be a better "smoothy". 4 cups hot water, 4 eggs, half teaspoon of sea salt, teaspoon of licorice, cinnamon, ginger, 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup coconut oil and in the blender and blend.

Drink it hot or let it cool. Lots of great fat and protein and low carbs and give it awhile and see if you like it. Stays with you and doesn't drop you and gives your temple what it needs to throw out what isn't needed and in fact causes all kinds of trouble. And you may know of that trouble.

Good Luck.

Egg Nogg

ho ho ho

OK, that is hard core!

How about I make some tea and scramble the eggs? I just can't see me holding that down.
I am getting ready to make the next big diet change - we are kicking wheat out of the diet. This is going to be hard - I LOVE to bake bread and such.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

do as you wish

and thanks for reading.
