I have suffered with digestive problems my entire life. After reading this book and incorporating coconut oil and coconut milk into my diet, I am finally recovering! It truly does seem to be "too good to be true", but in fact, coconut oil, is a miraculous food for this generation. It is very easy to switch from vegetable oils to coconut oil in all recipes. My family loves the change, and we are now enjoying wonderful smoothies and creamed soups that were "forbidden" because of the high fat content. But, switch to healthy fats and see what happens! A side benefit I am seeing is weight reduction without even trying! This book is a MUST for those who desire to regain their health and protect the health of their children.

By using only one tip in this book, my husband was able to get rid of an athletes foot problem he had suffered with for months. He had tried EVERY over-the-counter preparation. Finally went to the doctor. He was given a prescription for a 30 day supply of pills. The cost was over $200! Counseling with the pharmacist and discovering that PERMANENT health damage could result made us decide to NOT use the pills.
We did find the cure for the athletes foot in this book--the cost was $3.99 (swansonvitamins.com) without any side effects. Caprylic acid! One 600 mg soft gel daily until the bottle was finished. Coconut oil contains caprylic acid. We also started using virgin coconut oil and canned coconut milk--be sure to buy the brand with the HIGHEST fat content. Ten ounces of the canned coconut milk daily is enough to provide a healing dose of coconut oil. It can be used in smoothies, pudding, on oatmeal, in cooking, in soups and stews. I also add some to my tea or coffee. Simply refrigerate the canned coconut milk after opening. It will solidify in the refrigerator (melting temp. 76 degrees). Spoon onto oatmeal or into hot beverages.
I also need to share that the reason I found this info on coconut oil is because I began having thyroid problems and was doing some websearching for info. SOY was causing me to grow a goiter and causing other thyroid problems. The problems reversed after eliminating soy from my diet--no small task as it is in EVERYTHING. (Note: lecithin is soy). Try doing a web search by entering: soy danger. Shocking!
This book is well written and easy to understand. I am buying additonal copies to share with others.
I also recommend the book Alpha Lipoic Acid by Alan Sosin.

I admit it. I bought into all the big business hype about how bad coconut oil was for me.
After reading this book and altering my diet, I see how wrong I was to believe the misinformation I was being fed. The saturated fat in coconut oil is actually good for you and helps keep you healthy in so many ways. An interesting and amazing book backed up by history and fact. I just wish it had not been repetitive at times and at other times a bit hard to my layman's sensibilities to understand, but those are small quibbles. I enjoyed reading it and got through it fairly quickly. You'll want to keep a copy for yourself and get one for someone you love, it's that convincing!
I've been using coconut oil and avoiding other vegetable and hydrogenated oils since reading it and I feel better and have more energy. Read it for yourself and become a convert.

Well, I must admit I was skeptical. After all there are thousand of diet/health books. Most of them dont work, are to restrictive, or are unrealistic for the long term.

Anyhow just started the coconut oil, so not sure about some of the claims on weight etc however I have experienced the following.

1. Used coconut oil as a make up remover I give it a 5 out of 5, better than my expensive stuff.

2. Used it as a exfoilator with baking soda, again better than my most expensive stuff.

3. Used it as a moisturizer, first day or two got a break out and now my face is dare I say it...perfect.

4. Used it for my pilaris keratosis (otherwise pimply upper arms) I know too attractive. I have been to several dermatologists and doctors for this for years. Tried all the docs meds and maybe a ten percent improvement. With coconut oil in two days I am 99% cured. Don't believe me look at the research. I am to impressed. This is by the way my first review on amazon, but had to let you know.

Now if only that weight loss thing proves to be true.

Fife proceeds early in the book with an anecdote. In response to his assertion to dinner friends that coconut oil is the healthiest oil one can use, one of them countered that "Coconut oil is unhealthy; it can cause heart disease," to which Fife replied, "That must be why all the Pacific Islanders died off hundreds of years ago.
Fife takes the reader carefully through the chemistry of fats with brevity and clarity. Lay readers can easily understand him as they are led through an explanation of the differences between the various fats.
"Healing miracles" is not an overstatement to describe the effects of coconut oil. Fife details some 40 different health benefits from the use of this oil--one hesitates to list them for fear of sounding gullible or lunatic--and he thoroughly documents his work with research findings.
If you love your family and yourself, read this book!
