I have had done extensive research on autoimmune disease and to my surprise, a lot of modern day ailments are autoimmune. This book educated me about coconut oil. I thought it was a bad oil to have and it was saturated, but apparently it is very good for you. I used it for a tooth problem I had at first, doing something that sounds ridiculous, called "oil pulling" I really thought it was ridiculous but I did it. I only had to do it for about 5 days and the problem I had with my tooth went away! I then have used it to put all over my body as a mosturizing cream, for cooking, my dog loves it! lol... An interesting and educational read.
