    Hi folks

    I've been reading up on old posts here and it seems quite a few of you are taking coconut oil. I am thinking of adding it to my diet.

    I have a few questions that I was hoping someone could help me with:

    - What symptoms did coconut oil help you with and when did you notice the difference?
    - How much and how often did you take it?
    - Do you also take the other oils - EPO or fish oils.

    Thanks so much
    Take care
    Michelle

    Thanks for your reply - how did the coconut oil help you?

    I've been taking it 2 days now, jsut started with 1 tsp. I have to say I thought it tasted quite good - I just ate it off the spoon.

    Thanks
    Michelle

    My doc had me doubling up on the stuff, and I starting severe bruising all over. and heavy nosebleeds, as soon as I lightened up on the dose the symptoms disappeared!

    I've also heard and read that the fish oils deplete the levels of Vit E in the blood, and there is a chance that they will oxidise or go rancid in the body, so its recommended to take them with Vit E. Some preparations already have the Vit E in them.

    Cheers
