    Smile The Power of Coconut Oil!

    Some of you may already know about the health benefits of coconut oil but for those who don't, it's incredible!

    My aunts response:
    "Amazing! Buy the organic coconut oil at vitacost, good for the face skin, taste great for cooking, and now also known for alzheimers, wow what a wonder food...please share this link."

    "If it's good for Alzheimer...Then I"m gonna buy my mom a dozen bottles!!"

    My mom and aunt have been using it as an evening moisturizer for face, neck & hands for almost a year.. My aunt loves the smell & taste with her cooking! I've tried it and personally it tastes good!

    Check it out!

    I only just recently learned that from a naturopath doc who recommended it.

    All this time official sources have been saying it's bad, bad saturated fat.

    Another example of why "official sources" are not the end-all, be-all.

    Coconut oil is prized for its health-giving properties. It provides healing properties for many parts of the body. The skin is a wonderful benefactor since coconut oil is a helpful moisturizer. It can also provide nutrients to help prevent some types of cancer.

    It may well be good for the skin and the video about Alsheimer's Disease was very interesting but let's not make unsubstantiated claims about its ability to fight cancer, please. I could not find any reference to that possibility when I researched it . I saw lots of anecdotal claims that are typical for alternative or complementaries about their amazing health benefits, though none were related to cancer. I also saw a study by the Mayo Clinic debunking most of those claims.

    Good health,

    Follicular lymphoma diagnosed August 08, Stage 1
    2 cycles (20 treatments each) localized radiation to tumor sites. Remission confirmed July 09

    Restaged to Stage 3 May 2010
    Recurrence confirmed May 2010 - Watch and Wait commenced - multiple scans with minimal progression.

    Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma diagnosed September 2012. Mohs surgical excision 09/2012. Successful, clean edges all around.

    Significant progression detected in PET scan - December 2012

    Biopsy to check for transformation 1/18/2013 - negative for that but full of lymphoma, of course.

    July 2013 - Rescan due to progression shows one tumor (among many) very suspect for transformation, another biopsy 8/12/13.

    August 2013 - No evidence of transformation, 6 courses of B+R commence 8/29 due to "extensive, systemic disease".

    February 2014 - Diagnostic PET scan states: Negative PET scan. Previous noted hypermetabolic cervical, axillary, iliac and inguinal lymphadenopathy has resolved. Doctor confirms full remission.

    June 2014 - started 2 year maintenance Rituxin, 1 infusion every 3 months. Doctor confirms lump under right arm are "suspicious" for recurrent disease, deferring scans for now.

    Remember the Rules!

    I agree, there's no research that would support claims that coconut oil cures cancer. Not that I am saying it will not but as of the moment no studies have proven it hence; let's not lead people here to that wrong notion

    Hi Banabelle

    Coconut Oil is very high in saturated fat one of the highest of all the plant oils. Also naturopaths are not doctors.

    I may not have gone where I intended to go,
    but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
