Several months ago I found a book at the library on the benefits of Coconut Oil, and it was pretty eye opening.  I have some in my cupboard, and I really want to get the book for my personal library.  It has so many good benefits for losing weight, and healing the body.

I love it. I take it almost every day.  :)

How much do you take daily?
It's about one and a half to two tablespoons a day. I have yet to get my blood fat tested since adding it to my diet. I will know in about a month how it affects that.
The coconut oil is my main source of fat, along with olive oil and sesame oil when we have it in the house. I am not quite as careful as I should be on added fats in foods...With my lifestyle and the amount of physical work, I do consume a bit of junk food.. With barely a mouthful of animal fat except the skim mozzarella and skim yogurt and an very occasional fish sandwich...the amount of fat is low in general.
Here's how we use the coconut oil in my household:
•   Daughter Gabby uses it almost daily on whole grain waffles, one of her few carbs during the day
•   She brings it in a little container to work along with the frozen waffles.
•   She has that with low - fat turkey sausages and it seems to work OK for her blood sugar.
•   I use it on occasional waffles, toast.
•   Daily use on rice cakes, one of my staples
•   I put a dollop in cooked chili beans or vegetariarian chili
•   Coconut oil is one of the oils we use for fried foods. (Also sesame oil)

Here are our fat sources we have at home:
o   vegetable nituke (sautéed veges) which are part of the miso soup. Coconut or sesame oil.
o   Sliced tofu seasoned with Mrs. Dash and/or kelp powder, sautéed in sesame oil.
o   We both prefer the sesame oil for the tofu
o   We both prefer the coconut oil on waffles and rice cakes to replace butter;
o   We both consume some butter. Hulda Clark said it is a necessary human food.
o   Gabby still buys an occasional hamburger I am off meat.
o   Olive oil, lemon juice and Mrs. Dash for salad dressing

I watched a video on youtube today about coconut oil.  It can be used for a hand cream, cuticle oil, rub on feet to help dry cracked heels, use as a body lotion, use as a makeup remover, use as a scalp treatment and hair conditioner, and use as a moisturized under makeup.  You can also tame flyaways with it.  Is there anything this miracle substance cannot do?

Great info!
I came across a treatment for skin conditions...
I don't have exact proportions so it has to be "by guess and by golly."

Make a paste of:
•   Diatomaceous earth, food grade
•   olive oil
•   coconut oil...
•   using oils which are as natural as you can get them
•   Leave on and gently rinse and scrub off


I had posted it in one of the herbal remedies or healing foods, etc. Topics...

It has anti bacterial, anti viral anti fungal and anti parasite properties...
That's what I read...never knew this until a few weeks ago...
- and as you say, it has many cosmetic and healing benefits.  :)

"Oil pulling" with coconut oil helps with asthma. Dental health, diabetes, other conditions.
I started a separate topic on oil pulling. Wikipedia article is here...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil_pulling 

Oil pulling is swishing around a cold pressed natural oil in the mouth for 15020 minutes, spitting it out then rinsing and scrubbing with salt water, followed by regular tooth brushing routine.

I did stop buying the coconut oil (bulk jar at COSTCO) for quite awhile oney was tight and had to get my blood fat down...I don't necessarily think the coconut oil did that, BTW.
I am going to add it back into my diet in small amounts and re-start the oil pulling. MOD ilinda reminded me of it. I need it for teeth gums and gneral health.
A note about coconut oil for asthma. I just now realized I went off of it and I am wheezing more again... I do believe it helps my asthma and copd. Going back on it.

The Nutribullet drinks, with the emphasis on dark green and chilies, ginger, garlic etc. and a little fruit - those definitely were helping my asthma. By imporoving my general energy and health.

Someone in the house wanted to take over making them but hasnt been doing it and then no one was making them. Just realizeing I am not doing as well without those...!

The kitchen backlog is all gone so we will likely have one today or in the  AM. :)

Very detoxifying, strengthening and great stuff. I do not wheeze as much when I consume them regularly. (Mine is generally well under control, just mentioning the nutribullet and coconut oil really help me.) I hope someone out there gets the benefit of opinion and experience posted here...
Please join in with your experiences on what helps...

Eh?  Anyway, I do both religiously every weekday (and maybe on Sundays), and now two of my friends use the nutribullet frequently also.

That sounds like a wonderful mix, but it also seems it would/could be a complete meal.  Is the Nutribullet thing sort of like a miniature blender?  I do recall yowbarb and others talking it up a while back.  Anyway, many, many heavy-duty nutrients!
