Two years ago my grandmother had to come live with my mom. She was 86 and healthy, but beginning to forget to pay her bills, take her BP meds, and she wasn’t eating healthy enough.

The first thing Mom did was take her to the doctor for a full check up to see how her overall health was doing. The doc said she had the beginnings of Alzheimer’s, and put her on medication for it (sorry, I can’t remember the name of the pills! :/ ) The doc said to try the pills for 6 months.

Within a week or so, Grandma became difficult to deal with: she didn’t like anything and had trouble remembering the names of close relatives. She was so cranky, she wouldn’t eat her food, and didn’t like anything.

Mom took her back to the doc and the doc said it was the Alzheimer’s getting worse, and to stay the course and keep her on her meds. Mom did this for two more months, but Grandma was getting worse and more cranky and downright mean.

This is when I suggested she start giving her coconut oil daily and get her off whatever those pills were. Mom informed the doc of the plan and, of course, the doc didn’t like it, but said to let her know how it goes.

Very soon, days after getting off those pills, she started getting back to where she was when Mom took her in. She was much more pleasant, and ate her food without complaining – turns out the pills made her food all taste terrible and caused irritability.

After a few weeks of gradually increasing her coconut oil intake and working up to 3 TBS daily, Grandma had improved even beyond where she was when she first came to live with Mom. Her memory was improving and her confusion was gone. She was pleasant and happy to be with us: she was a fully functioning 86 year old! Even some of her aches and pains were better! The only two meds she was on were BP and Synthroid, both of which now needed to be lowered, as she just didn’t need them so much anymore!

That was two years ago and now, at the age of 88, Grandma is still taking the coconut oil and has not lost one bit of her alertness, memory, or character! Coconut oil gave my Grandma back to us!

Coconut flour is one of the trickiest, if not the trickiest, most finicky, temperamental, fickle gluten free flour to work with. However, when you get it right, coconut flour baked goods will be some of the best you’ve ever had, gluten free or otherwise.

One of the hardest baked goods to transfer over to gluten free with coconut flour would be cookies. How do you do it? It’s either not the right texture, too crumbly, too dense, requires too many eggs or simply bakes up into sawdust.

Here are some proven tips to making successful coconut flour cookies based on three textures: crispy cookies, cakey cookies, chewy cookies. I include 10 kitchen-proven recipes to get you started.

Alzheimer’s Disease is a modern plague on the seniors in our society. More evidence continues to be published that Alzheimer’s is primarily a prescription drug induced disease. Coconut oil is an alternative to toxic drugs that has shown tremendous results in helping or even reversing Alzheimer’s disease. But your doctor will not likely know about either the causes of Alzheimer’s disease, or how coconut oil can help. Here is what you need to know.

Baking Soda & Coconut Oil Cleanser for Problem Skin

Using a facial cleanser as a part of your daily skin care ritual is one of the essential outward practices to maintaining clean, healthy skin. Many acne–fighting and exfoliating facial cleansers and masks contain little beads to help “polish” the skin by taking dead layers off, while a creamy and cleaning base should help moisturize and condition.

Instead of shelling out money and being wasteful in the process of trial and error in trying to find a product that works for your skin, try making it at home with only two ingredients you probably already have: coconut oil and baking soda. Not only are these two ingredients readily available, they are also highly effective in treating problematic skin. Unlike all the fillers and toxic ingredients in normal store-bought cosmetics, these two ingredients are not only safe for your skin, but safe to be eaten as well.

Once again, research into the health benefits of coconut oil is mainly being done outside of the U.S., primarily in coconut-producing countries. Here in the U.S., only pharmaceutical drugs can make health claims, by law. The FDA regulates all health claims, and only allows pharmaceutical companies that have gone through the lengthy and costly drug approval process to make such claims. No company in the U.S. would spend that kind of money on research for a product found in nature that cannot be patented.

A study just published in the journal Lipids in Health and Disease looked at Malaysian women suffering from breast cancer. The study discovered that stage 3 and 4 breast cancer women who supplemented their diet with virgin coconut oil during breast cancer treatment improved fatigue, dyspnea, sleep difficulties, and loss of appetite compared to the control group. Virgin coconut oil consumption during chemotherapy also helped improve the functional status and global Quality Of Life of these breast cancer patients. In addition, it reduced the symptoms related to side effects of chemotherapy.

Cold drinks are a popular summer staple that coffeehouses and restaurants make a killing off of every year with their ridiculous prices. However, there is little need to buy them. Making most of these drinks at home is easy, not to mention with far more healthy potential when you control what goes into them.

Adding coconut oil to your blended cold drinks is one way to get your daily dose of coconut oil without it being bothersome or boring. Not only that, but the addition of coconut oil will also give your endurance and energy a boost, keeping you going throughout the day or acting as a quick pick me up along with some natural fruit as the day drags on.
