a constant reference source for everyday health
Excellent reference with plenty of scientific data to back up claims. I have used coconut oil for dry skin, sunburn soother, rash healer, hair conditioner, and for most of my cooking needs that require oil. The Coconut oil miracle book is chock full of new great uses.

This product gives you great value overall and worth the investment.
I have enjoyed soaking in the information like a spunge and have been taking 1 tbsp. of coconut oil after each meal and recently after having my blood tested to my delight the cholesterol count has reduced by 30 so far. I also use coconut oil in baking (replacing butter) which I find makes it more moist. I would definitely recommend using this for food and I also use it on my face as a moisterizer as well as on my legs, arms, neck and face after having a shower. Skin feels so much softer.

Amazing book by a doctor who shares the health of consuming/using coconuts
Wonderful book. It's such an eye opener on the health of coconut oil. Everyone should add coconut to their diet if they're not allergic to it!

I just want to thank this man for writing this book.
I signed on to buying this book and the oil just to test it out. I was on a few health boards whom spoke about it. I was actually very skeptical but the psoriasis I had in a patterns on both my feet and hands was pain full, bloody, unsightly and would not go away unless I laid in the sun every day/ laid in tanning bed even worse or paid a doctor to give me a prescription for some steroid that I could only use temporary. It can be costly for the average Jane and Joe to buy coconut oil and it even takes more creative ways to eat the amount Fife writes you should have to help aliments. I would suggest buying it at a local health food store if you can at first too see if it helps you then when it does make the investment. I buy it in large qualities a gallon or more on the internet which saves me a load of dollars.In a health food store the same amount would cost 3x to 4x this price. Not to long ago the psoriasis disappeared on both hands and both feet. It took about a month and a half. As the psoriasis was going bye bye from my hands and feet I got the Fife book and started reading. The skin in the areas that were infected with the psoriasis started to look like nothing had ever happened to this region of my body. I will tell you this, you may get sick eating this oil at first. I did, I got very sick for about 3 days and I looked sickly. It was the die off of many little critters in my body from bacteria, viruses to yeasts. You have to drink a lot of water or green tea initially. When my body got use to dealing with all the toxins from the death of these micro organisms I stopped getting feelings of sickness. I must also tell you I did not follow the slow build up Fife suggested I jumped into full throttle pretty quick. I was just sick and tired of itching, burning, bleeding and the pain. But when the storm passed I felt great and looked great. Once I got by the initial feelings of sickness it has never came back with that force and I eat 3 and half tablespoon of either the Organic Extra Virgin Oil or a glass or two of the milk that Fife gives a receipt for towards the end of this book from canned coconut milk. Another plus to my coconut oil experiments was the Eczema on my step daughters wrists and elbows went away. It was a little hard to get myself to take the oil can you imagine what it's like for a kid? so I put it in hot milk with organic sugar, or maple syrup, Hot chocolate, hot cereals and I did it very slowly. She responded well. I would not suggest giving children too much too soon. The milk I make from canned coconut milk helps when I add orange juice or pineapple juice for a virgin Pina Colada and the kids usually like it. I even drink it this way. I drink it in my coffee a table spoon at a time. There were also some other things Mr. Fife recommended and I tried again a little skeptical. I guess when you have psoriasis you can be troubled with dandruff which I was until I started rubbing the oil into may scalp a (half/hour) before a shower then I washed it out shampooing twice. After a few times and continued eating of Coconut products high in oils this dandruff started to been non existent. I also rubbed it into my face and neck prior to showers and sometimes use it over night, amazing how my skin glows and feels softer then a baby's bottom. Its hard to use ever day on your skin unless you have super dry skin. I rub it in really good then wash my face with a shower sponge and natural liquid almond soap or peppermint soap.Read full review
