Research outside of the United States continues to show what the world is investigating and learning about coconut oil, while such information is censored in the U.S. corporate "mainstream" media since coconut oil presents a threat to Big Food and Big Pharma's financial interests. Recent studies confirm that coconut oil protects the heart, and also potentially protects other vital organs including the liver and kidneys of those suffering from diabetes. This research contradicts the propaganda against coconut oil by American organizations such as the American Heart Association which still promote the now failed theory of heart disease that blames saturated fats and cholesterol as causative factors in heart disease.
The Mideast region of Eurasia has known that black cumin seed (Nigella sativa) "remedies all but death" for centuries. Now it seems that many researchers in that region are doing what they can to demonstrate the science behind this centuries-old medicine's anecdotal folklore. Recently published studies have looked at black cumin seed oil for rapidly healing wounds, and protecting against pancreas damage which leads to diabetes.
#1 Most-read Study of 2018 in the Medical Journal Pediatrics is How a High-Fat Diet can Help Type 1 Diabetes
A recent 2018 online survey of type 1 diabetics or their parents and caregivers has opened the door for others to use the ketogenic high-fat, low-carbohydrate, moderate protein diet to ease the burden of insulin injections and improve the day-to-day life of type 1 diabetics, potentially leading to remission. This was a breakthrough study, as the ketogenic diet has proven itself with diabetes type 2 sufferers, but there has been little looked into with keto for diabetes 1 patients. This study's focus was on serious carb production. Its title is Management of Type 1 Diabetes With a Very Low–Carbohydrate Diet, and it was published by Pediatrics, the "official journal" of the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics). Dr. Lewis First, chief editor of Pediatrics, provided an article listing the top 10 items published by Pediatrics during 2018. This study was at the top of the list as the most popular article in Pediatrics for 2018.
American Diabetes Association’s New Recommendations Would Keep Diabetics on Drugs Instead of Curing Diabetes Through Diet
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) just put out a position paper on treating diabetes. It’s focus on treatment and prevention, especially for the increasing incidents of diabetes 2 among youth, demonstrates the willful ignorance of institutions that create medical standards for the medical profession. What is ignored is the potential for treating obesity and diabetes 2 with the high-fat low-carb ketogenic diet, which has proven effective for all the factors leading to diabetes and diabetes 2 itself, even improving the overall health of those afflicted with diabetes 1, the less frequent form of diabetes that requires insulin injections.
A new study published in the journal Plant Foods for Human Nutrition on August 31, 2018, with the title Beneficial Effect of Virgin Coconut Oil on Alloxan-Induced Diabetes and Microbiota Composition in Rats adds further proof that virgin coconut oil is a powerful remedy for diabetes. In this latest study, virgin coconut oil was shown to be beneficial to the microbiome by increasing probiotic bacteria, leading to better outcomes for those suffering with diabetes. This new research confirms what many have reported to us over the past 15 plus years, that virgin coconut oil is beneficial in overcoming both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. This new study offers a possible explanation as to how virgin coconut oil helps people with Type 1 diabetes without directly affecting insulin levels.
The benefits of berberine are not as well known as most supplements on the market. It wasn't even widely available until recently. Yet it has been tried and tested for type 2 diabetes and fat accumulation reduction, including that of fatty liver. Our diabetic institutions are misleading people with pre-diabetics or metabolic syndrome testing and leading them into full-blown diabetes 2 with their recommendations, while mainstream medicine's prescription diabetic drugs are questionably efficacious with dangerous side effects, such as bladder cancer and unpredictable interactions with other drugs. Dr. Jonathan Wright of the holistic Tahoma Clinic in Washington state notes that several studies have shown that berberine, an alkaloid found in the herb goldenseal and other natural sources, can lower blood glucose as effectively as the drug metformin at similar doses (500 mg 3x/day).
Despite BILLIONS of dollars spent on pharmaceutical research, diabetes rates continue to rise. Plus, there are MORE THAN 70 diabetes drugs being prescribed in the U.S. alone — NONE that address the root causes or stops the progression of the disease. What we’re doing now must change, because it isn’t working. With the right education and action, it’s ABSOLUTELY possible to change and save the lives of those on a path toward diabetes. For Dr. Brian Mowll, diabetes is a professional passion. Early in his medical practice, he saw one person after another suffering with diabetes, and all of them frustrated with the mismanagement of their conditions. They were taking drugs to manage blood sugar, but their health kept deteriorating. Dr. Mowll made it his mission to discover the truth about the root causes of type 2 diabetes, and find natural solutions to reverse it, help restore balance and master blood sugar.

Last year Oxford scientist, Dr. David Matthews, compared diabetes to The Black Death of the 21st century. 1 out of 2 Americans now have diabetes or pre-diabetes, and 70% don't even know it. 2 out of 3 people with diabetes will die of a heart attack, and diabetes is a leading cause of death by stroke. As of 2017 40% of American adults are now obese, and a shocking 20% of our kids, making them up to 5X as likely to get diabetes. The FREE Online Docuseries, iThrive! Rising from the Depths of Diabetes and Obesity, features 55 world-renowned scientists, doctors, and experts. It begins February 27, 2018. Our host, Jon McMahon, is a 53-year-old morbidly obese man who has had a diabetic heart attack and has been told another heart attack or stroke could come without warning. He chooses to embark on a journey to understand why no amount of money or medicine is stopping the twin pandemics of diabetes and obesity, what's really causing it and how to prevent and reverse it. He heads out as a one-man-documentary camera crew... against his doctors’ orders. He knew that he might not have lived to see the docuseries go live to the world, but believes his mission was worth risking his life for. Our host has now applied what he’s learned from the docuseries experts and has lost 45 lbs in recent weeks. His fasting blood sugar is 85 now. He’s living the transformation!
When we published our book on Virgin Coconut Oil back in 2004, we devoted a whole chapter to diabetes, based on research and testimonials from coconut oil consumers. That chapter also exists as an article on the CoconutOil.com website. The article has testimonials for both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Peer-reviewed published research here in 2017 continues to confirm that coconut oil is the dietary oil of choice for those who suffer from diabetes.
Forty percent of women today are obese. Many believe obesity is a precursor to diabetes, which if not reversed will lead to further health complications, and even be life threatening. However, a recent study looking at the effects of coconut oil on glycemia and inflammation demonstrated that obesity alone may not be the culprit. What the researchers discovered indicates that inflammation has a greater impact on insulin resistance and high blood sugar than excess fat. This could be argued, since adipose fats do release toxins over time that do create inflammation. But there are diabetes 2 patients who are not obese. Obesity in women has also been considered a factor in infertility, which this study also attempted to determine. Inadvertently, the study’s findings disclosed even more about the health protective qualities of coconut oil.
