The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Coconut Oil Diet

Free sample

For many years, coconut oil has been anecdotally credited with relieving and even curing a wide variety of the most deadly diseases and conditions. Recent evidence suggests that, taken in the right doses, it can also cause dramatic improvement in the brain function of Alzheimer's patients. Because conventional medicine so far has failed to find an effective treatment for this devastating disease, people are willing to give coconut oil a shot. But how much should they take, and what are easy ways to work it into the diet? And how and why could it really work? The Complete Idiot's Guide® to the Coconut Oil Diet examines the science behind medicinal coconut oil and helps readers integrate natural coconut oil into their diets easily. It gathers evidence and expert opinions on the use of coconut oil to help with the deadliest diseases and conditions, including:
- Alzheimer's disease
- Diabetes
- Heart disease
- Hypertension
- Compromised immune system
- Viruses and bacterial infections
- Obesity
- Skin conditions
