    No, I have not heard of it, either.

    But I would be interested! I love coconut.

    Did you do a search for it on the internet to see if you could find out anything?

    A friend recommended coconut oil capsules and I just started taking them. They helped tith her fibro pain and she didn't have to take the oil on food!

    I think that I read that coconut oil will help with thyroid problems. Thee are some schools of though that believe fibro and messed up thyroids are related.

    Imagine the look on my face when a new dental hygenist looked at my chart before a cleaning and says "you have fms, do you eat coconut?"...

    A friend of hers has newly diagnosed fms (only) and declares that to be THE CURE for it...

    I am guessing she may being having someone drop the coconuts on her head to distract her from the pain all over.

    Oh boy, I'm tired, I must be, I am laughing my butt off here...

    If it's that easy, someone let us know, we have been wasting so much time and money when all we needed was some delicious coconuts...If this is true, I'm BUYING, bottoms up!
