Hello Everyone! I hope all is well with you. I’m Lisa Orchard the bestselling author of the Super Spies series and I’m back today to talk about Coconut Oil.
Yes Coconut Oil. It has huge health benefits. In my opinion, Coconut Oil is most likely the wonder drug of this century. It can heal all kinds of woes. Here’s a list:
Helps with Weight Loss
…And many others. To get more information on Coconut Oil click this link.
I thought I would just take one health issue and explain how Coconut Oil helps it. The one I’d like to tackle is Alzheimer’s disease.
Recent research has shown a correlation between diet and Alzheimer’s disease, more importantly cholesterol and Alzheimer’s disease. This is important because our medical advisors have been telling us for years we need to lower cholesterol for our health. Now we’re finding there is a strong relationship between cholesterol in our body and mental health.
Cholesterol is important for our brain. Our brain composes only 2% of our total body mass but contains 25% of the total cholesterol. So, we can arguably draw the conclusion that our brains need cholesterol to function.
One in four Americans over the age of forty-five are prescribed a cholesterol lowering drug. Many researchers are wondering if there is a correlation between the astronomical rise of Alzheimer’s disease and the rise of many Americans taking these cholesterol lowering drugs, called Statins.
So, what should someone do, who has high cholesterol and is at a high risk of heart disease due to this fact?
Well, overwhelming information has been gathered and it’s illustrating that Coconut Oil has in fact improved and even reversed some of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. So, the conclusion I’m drawing is…if your doctor prescribes a statin for you. It might a good idea to add Coconut Oil to your diet to counteract the negative effects of the statin.
Now, I’m not a doctor and this is just my opinion…but it’s something to ask your doctor about if you find yourself in that situation.

There is also evidence that Coconut Oil improves Parkinson’s disease and helps with ALS. Researchers have been looking for cures for these diseases for years and have come up empty. Wouldn’t it be a real kick in the pants if it were something natural that cured all this?
Just think about it. These huge drug companies doing all this research to create drugs to solve these health issues and all it would take is a couple of tablespoons of Coconut Oil a day. J It’s kind of humorous isn’t it?
You know, I’m thinking of a career change…maybe I’ll become a Coconut farmer. J Just kidding! Well…maybe I’m a little serious!
Coconut Oil can be found in any health food store or believe it or not on Amazon. J (They have everything don’t they?)
Here’s the link to Amazon for a 16 oz. jar of it.
