Health Impact News Editor Comments: I spoke with Joseph Jauregui about the joy he and his brothers and sisters have after seeing their father change when he started to use coconut oil in his diet. Joe reported to me that while his father still has a ways to go to be like his former self before dementia set in, that now his mother and siblings feel like they have their father back again. Here is his story, which is a chronology of observations over several weeks.

by Joseph Jauregui

My Dad was diagnosed with Severe Dementia about 7-8 years ago. I still remember the day when he forgot my name.  Ever since then I’ve been praying for him to return to whom he was, but as time passed he got worse and worse.  I saw a very articulate man go from creative, comical and caring to distraught, lost and childlike.

He than started having accidents to my mothers disgust (that was 8 years ago). He was having about 5-6 accidents a day and getting up at all hours of the night.  He was going back in time daily, and even losing the ability to communicate and read.

A friend of mine told me about this coconut oil and its results and I practically got tears in my eyes (and I’m a dude haha).  So I bought some coconut oil and gave it to my mother as she cooks all his meals.

I visit every other Saturday, so before I went I psyched myself up to accept that there would be “no difference” as my dad is in his 80′s, and I felt he was too far gone. He had been diagnosed with severe dementia 10 years earlier. Well to my surprise my mother said he had changed quite a bit, and that he wasn’t getting up as often at night. And the best part was that she wasn’t complaining about his antics nearly as much as the past years.

Two weeks later I returned and my father was far more social, and he even began to tell jokes. He still wasn’t himself, but a glimse of his former self was there.

I missed going one week but the report from my sister was good.  She called my mom on the phone and my dad answered.  She was surprised that he spoke to her in a way he hadn’t spoken to her in YEARS. I’m very hopeful, and I gotta say Coconut Oil is now a part of my routine. It is great in eggs and steamed veggies (yum!).

I visited the folks this past week and was hoping for more changes, and yes there were.

First off I need to tell you all that my sister, her husband and child moved in with my folks due to the job situation. My mother doesn’t  like it as the house is small, and she still gets embarrassed about my dad’s situation, but my dad who has always been an extrovert loves having more people at home.  He was telling jokes and laughing, giggling…oh what a mess haha!  My mother was telling me that he’s been like that for a couple of days, which is great, as he really never laughed all that much after the disease hit him.

I left there feeling very appreciative of the changes in his life. Those prayers are being answered, and I’m feeling great.  The next day my brother went down to my folks house and told me that dad did something he hasn’t done in years – he combed his hair! He is doing things he had not done before. The coconut oil is working and is having great results in him.

One day I believe he will return to the person whom he was. The change in him over the 7 weeks has been far better than I would of hoped for. This diet of coconut oil in everything he eats has done wonders for him. And my mother didn’t even complain to me once  this week - WAHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Coconut oil is well known for being rich in health benefits for people, but this product is also highly beneficial for dogs and cats as well, and for pretty much all of the same reasons it’s great for humans.

Getting Coconut Oil into Your Daily Snacking

Getting Coconut Oil into Your Daily Snacking

Snacking is something nearly everyone does and likes to do. It’s fun, easy, and can give you that extra mood lift or energy boost you need in the middle of the day.

Unfortunately, mindless snacking can also lead to a lot of unhealthy habits such as feeding a sugar addiction. The body often craves foods and drinks that will boost energy, and sugar is usually the most readily available source.

Perhaps the best alternative you should be reaching for, instead of something loaded with processed sugary carbs, is coconut oil. Coconut oil is incredibly easy to work with, versatile, and can (and will) boost your energy, mood, and health.

Big Pharma want to “Protect” the Elderly from “Dangers” of Coconut Oil and Natural Supplements

Big Pharma want to “Protect” the Elderly from “Dangers” of Coconut Oil and Natural Supplements

A new study is to be published written by a psychiatrist working for a VA hospital educating other psychiatrists on how to protect their patients against the dangerous side effects from coconut oil and other natural supplements. However, with no recorded deaths due to the side effects of coconut oil or other natural supplements in recent years, and with the medical community themselves admitting that over 100,000 people a year die from their prescription drugs, one has to wonder who is really being “protected” with this advice?
