Two words that are being heard more and more lately are: Coconut oil. It is being written about and touted as a possible cure or help for Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's, ALS, Autism, Dementia and more. We are even told it helps lower bad cholesterol. Wow! Sounds like something we should be using on a regular basis.
Both of my parents had Alzheimer's Disease. This fact is ever-present in my mind and my siblings' minds. Every time we forget a word or go into a room and can't remember what we are there for, we worry that we have it.
Doing a little research on this topic, I came across this video which is helpful in explaining how coconut oil can help us.
Important to remember is that we need to look for "pure" "non-hydrogenated" coconut oil. Rookies like me will also need to read up on how to use it...find recipes or whatever to guide me. HB (HoneyBunny) has Type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol. He might benefit from this. I am a bit fluffy around the middle and I know I could use the help! So, expect to see a couple more books on my cookbook shelf (Cookbooks or Lookbooks) soon! Click here to see what I am finding so far.
In a future blog, I will discuss aluminum and Alzheimer's Disease. It's like a horror movie..showing up in the least likely places!
Have you tried coconut oil? How has it helped you?
