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!

How to Use Coconut Oil in Your Skincare Routine

Coconut oil is often praised for its many health benefits and its versatility in cooking and baking. While these many benefits may have gotten you to commit to always keeping some coconut oil in your pantry, coconut oil has a big place outside of the kitchen as well.

Coconut oil’s healing, antibacterial, and cleansing properties take on an entirely new personality when used topically, making it the ideal multiple-products-in-one item to add to your skincare and personal grooming regimes. Since coconut oil is gentle on the skin and not laden with chemicals and ingredients you have to watch out for (like most of the skin and beauty care products sold today), this is a safe and easy oil for anyone to use and experiment with.

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. Incorporating coconut oil into cats’ and dogs’ lives both topically and internally will undoubtedly lead to dramatic improvements in their overall health.

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.
