Coconut oil seems to help my medication work better by reducing the off time between doses. When I don’t have the coconut oil, it seems to take my medication longer to kick in. All coconut oil, however, is not the same. The best coconut oil is the unrefined organic virgin coconut oil. Good coconut oil costs about $8-10 for a 14 ounce jar. I usually take the coconut oil straight out of the jar by the teaspoon full. It doesn’t have much of a taste. I’ll take the coconut oil throughout the day. I always have some in the morning. Sometimes I mix it in my oatmeal or coffee. While at work, I take two pills (2000mg) of organic coconut oil. Then I’ll take one spoonful at supper time and one before bedtime.
To save money, look for it on sale or buy the super-size container.
Certified organic virgin cold pressed coconut oil is also being used to aid the symptoms of Parkinson’s. People are getting good results with 1 tablespoon 2-3x daily.
