Take 5 TBSP of Coconut Oil and Call Me In the Morning

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, June 10, 2011

I’m always looking for safe, natural “cures” that multi-task in our bodies. And I’ve found a great one in coconut oil.

I’m writing a review of Dr. Bruce Fife new book, “Stop Alzheimer’s Now! Dr. Fife says the basic treatment for this devastating condition is simply coconut oil. But coconut oil is not simple. One of my clients remarked:

“I just read a few things from Dr. Fife’s coconut oil links. I knew it was good stuff but had no idea that it was this amazing. It’s even used for the thyroid. This must be one close to a perfect food.”

I also know that it’s a great anti-fungal treatment; can be used as a skin moisturizer; and can treat seizures!

As Dr. Fife’s says on his Coconut Research site, “Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It is classified as a “functional food” because it provides many health benefits beyond its nutritional content. Coconut oil is of special interest because it possesses healing properties far beyond that of any other dietary oil and is extensively used in traditional medicine among Asian and Pacific populations. Pacific Islanders consider coconut oil to be the cure for all illness. The coconut palm is so highly valued by them as both a source of food and medicine that it is called “The Tree of Life.” Only recently has modern medical science unlocked the secrets to coconut’s amazing healing powers.”

What kind and how much coconut oil do you take to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s and many other health conditions and treat hundreds of symptoms? The dosage used in most studies is about 5 TBSP per day of extra virgin coconut oil.

How do you use it? You can substitute it in most recipes calling for oil; in your smoothie or protein powder drink (which is how I take it); and straight from the spoon.

Dr. Fife says that “Nearly one third of the world’s population depends on coconut to some degree for their food and their economy. Wherever the coconut palm grows the people have learned of its importance as an effective medicine. For thousands of years coconut products have held a respected and valuable place in local folk medicine.”

What type of oil do I use? Tropical Traditions, which produces Extra Virgin Coconut oil, a milder tasting Expeller Processed Coconut Oil, coconut oil lip gloss and coconut oil body creams with different scents and includes arnica for aches and pains.

Be sure to send your coconut oil miracle stories to me when you start taking it! Just remember, according to Dr. Fife, the 5 TBSP are for someone with Alzheimer’s or a serious disease. For minor problems and maintenance, he says 1-3 TBSP is just fine. Of course you still might want to start with a teaspoon or two to see how your body reacts. It can have a great laxative effect!

Don’t Forget About Magnesium

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, June 7, 2011

It’s impossible for me to forget magnesium. Every day I talk about it with my clients. Just yesterday a new client said he was appalled that during his 15 years of suffering a serious magnesium deficiency condition no doctors had ever mentioned this mineral. Also in his world as an athlete and personal trainer he had never come across information indicating the significance of magnesium in the diet.

People often ask me how do you know if you are taking enough magnesium. One blog reader said she has tried several different forms of magnesium (including taurate, glycinate, and citrate), waited 3 months before having her Mg-RBC re-tested, but regardless of what form she tries, her magnesium levels do not increase. However, her mild case of Mitral Valve Prolapse is no longer evident, which indicates the magnesium must be having an effect. (MVP is causes by a valve that doesn’t close properly and is related to magnesium deficiency.)

I tell my clients that it can take 6 months to a year to build up their depleted magnesium stores. If magnesium is helping to remove symptoms I usually just tell them to keep taking it and eventually the RBC blood tests will catch up.

However, a few individuals actually feel worse when they first take magnesium. This is mostly caused by taking too much magnesium too soon in a body that’s very depleted of many nutrients. If you are run down and exhausted and feel you are very magnesium-deficient, start taking very small amounts, like 50 mg a day of magnesium citrate powder in water to slowly get your body used to taking this high octane fuel.

We know that taking Vitamin D can utilize more magnesium in the body. We will probably find the same for other supplements. They all work together and as one nutrient stimulates the body to more activity it requires more nutrients to do its work. So if you take high doses of magnesium you may uncover deficiencies of other nutrients as they are called into action to work with magnesium.

There are four major conditions where magnesium is contraindicated so taking magnesium with these conditions can make you feel worse.

1. Kidney failure
2. Myasthenia gravis
3. Excessively slow heart rate
4. Bowel obstruction

Media: I’m doing a radio show on magnesium with Robert Scott Bell, Wednesday June 8, 2011 on the second hour of Mike Adams, Natural News Radio, 1pm EDT. The show will continue to play throughout the day.

For those of you who have been asking about my godson who fell off a 3-story building May 1, 2011. One month later he walked out of the hospital in very good shape. Yes, miracles do happen!

Frozana Update

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, June 1, 2011

In my online wellness program I share my favorite desert and received this enthusiastic response from a member who sends back a great way to make these treats one at a time.

“Thanks to you, my favorite all time dessert is your Frozana! I have adapted the recipe to use extra-virgin coconut oil melted gently (keep it raw), cacao powder, agave, raw coconut ribbons/flakes and raw walnut pieces.

For one frozen banana, the simple recipe is:

Melt 1 tbsp extra-virgin coconut oil
Add 1 tbsp cacao powder
Agave (organic-without fructose corn syrup) to taste (1/2 tbsp)
Stir to blend and then add:
A small handful of walnut pieces and coconut ribbons ~ stir to cover with chocolate

Place frozen banana on open piece of saran wrap in a bowl. Drizzle yummy chocolate sauce over the banana folding the saran up and around it to ‘corral’ the sauce. Place banana + bowl in freezer for 5 minutes or longer all wrapped in saran. When ready to indulge, unwrap the saran or the part you want to bite into. You can use the saran wrap to keep your fingers from getting chocolately. To keep it really simple, when originally freezing the ripened bananas, wrap each one in saran wrap and then reuse the wrap for the frozana covering. Also keeps the chocolate from chipping off on each bite
~ Best ever recipe of the century :) Thanks so much for the idea!!!!!!”

And thank you for your enthusiasm! I love it when a good recipe works! I tried making single bananas in the saran wrap and it’s much less messy. However I also add 1 TBSP coconut milk and only about 1/4 tsp of honey per banana.

Shifting Shingles

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, May 29, 2011

Herpes zoster is the medical term for shingles. It is the reactivation of the chickenpox virus, which usually occurs in older people, but can happen in anyone who is undergoing massive stress. At times the pain is so severe that cortisone and strong painkillers must be used so that you can rest and sleep. However, acupuncture by a skilled practitioner can often give relief.

First Aid:

* Capsaicin cream: Made from red pepper, this cream causes a counter irritation of the skin that sometimes breaks the pain cycle. Start with a very small amount of cream and gauge your reaction before using a full dose.

* Apple Cider Vinegar – Apply to blisters with soft cloth to dry up blisters and control pain. Repeat as often as needed.

* Clay: Do a trial of a clay and water poultice to test if the blisters can be dried out. Mix a few teaspoons of clay with a few teaspoons of water and cover the lesions. Leave on overnight. Repeat if the treatment helps remove plain and inflammation. LL’s Magnetic Clay.

Supplements:

* Vitamin B complex: Choose a food‐based organic product. Dosage: twice daily. Grown by Nature.

* Vitamin E: As mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols in a food-based organic product. Dosage: 800 IU daily. Grown by Nature.

* B12 sublingual: 1,000 micrograms daily.

* Magnesium: Choose an angstrom‐sized liquid mineral product. Take one dose twice daily. Health Shop 101.

* Lysine: This amino acid “neutralizes” arginine, which simulates the shingles virus. Take 1,000mg three times a day away from protein especially dairy.

Homeopathy:

* Ranunculus: For the neuralgia

* Mezereum: For the itching and burning.

* Rhus tox, Apis, Arsenicum, Natrum mur, Cantharis, and Clematis have also been used for the symptoms of shingles.

Any of these remedies can be taken in the 12X potency, one dose hourly. Consult Part Five of Future Health Now Encyclopedia or a homeopathic manual to match your symptoms more closely with a specific remedy.

Excerpted from my eBook, Future Health Now Encyclopedia – 375 pages detailing alternative therapies for over 134 ailments from over 40 years of studying and practicing natural medicine. Now at the discounted price of $11.

Psyllium Seed Lowers Cholesterol

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, May 27, 2011

One of my newsletter readers told me that Metamucil can take the place of Crestor in lowering cholesterol in a natural way. It may take longer than using a drug but this treatment is completely devoid of side effects.

Sure enough, on the Metamucil website they brag that “Clinical studies have shown that, taken daily, 7 grams of soluble fiber from psyllium husk, the amount in three to four servings (3-4 tsp) of Metamucil, may help reduce heart disease risk by lowering cholesterol.”

I prefer using psyllium husk powder, which is the unrefined parent of Metamucil. It also doesn’t have the flavorings, colorings, sugar or artificial sweeteners that “contaminate” Metamucil.

Psyllium husk powder is a soluble and insoluble fiber that swells into a gel when mixed with water. I take 1 TBSP every morning myself at least an hour before eating. I shake it quickly in 2oz of water and swallow it quickly before it turns into a gel in the cup. Then I drink another 8 oz of water to help it swell up and broom through my intestines.

If the gel consistency turns you completely off, there a capsules that you can take with a glass or two of water.

Treating Eczema Naturally

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Eczema is a chronic skin condition that can range from wet blisters to dry flakes. It is usually itchy and can occur on any surface of the body. It is most commonly associated with allergies from contact or foods, and is usually aggravated by stress.

First, you must track down the allergic factor by avoiding and challenging soaps, clothes, jewelry, and certain foods. For children, pay particular attention to dust and dust mites as a possible cause.

You must also investigate and treat yeast overgrowth, especially if eczema develops after taking antibiotics. Yeast overgrowth on the skin or yeast toxins from intestinal yeast overgrowth can cause or aggravate any skin condition.

The medical treatment for eczema is cortisone cream. Using cortisone creams for eczema, however, merely suppresses symptoms; it also stimulates more yeast and fungal
growth.

First Aid:
* Avoid showers, because they strip the acid mantle of the skin.
* Use two ounces of apple cider vinegar, a few drops of bath oil or a cotton pouch of oatmeal in your bath.
* Use coconut oil as a body lotion.
* Dry indoor air is bad for eczema; use a humidifier and external creams and lotions from organic sources.
* Avoid wool and use cotton clothing.
* Use dust mite mattress and pillow covers, and launder sheets and pillowcases frequently.
* Do several rinse cycles on your laundry and don’t use scented antistatic products in the dryer.
* Make sure the soap you use does not irritate the skin. Use a neutral pH soap like castile ‐ made from olive oil, almond oil, or coconut oil.
* Remove carpeting, stuffed toys, and vacuum frequently.

Detoxification:
* To remove toxins (yeast, heavy metals, radiation) that may be causing eczema use clay baths from LL’s Magnetic Clay. Start with the “Natural Clay.” Blend 1/4 to 1/2 cup of clay in your blender with 32oz of water and pour that into your hot water foot bath or tub. Soak for 30 min and shower off. Do a bath or footbath at least three times a week, more if you have time.

Supplements:
* Essential fatty acids: Choose one high in DHA for children and high in EFA for adults. Dosage: follow the label for children; adults, 2‐3,000 mg daily.
* Evening primrose oil and/or borage oil: Both provide essential omega‐6 fatty acids and support the immune system. Dosage: 1,000 mg twice daily.
Take EFAs with meals and avoid water with your meals so that fats and oils in your food will be absorbed properly. Water in the stomach along with oil will cause the oil globules to combine together in an oil puddle, which the body will have trouble absorbing.
* Vitamin D. Current research shows that most people require at lease 2,000 IU of Vitamin D3 per day.
* Zinc: Choose an angstrom‐sized liquid mineral product. Take one dose twice daily.

Homeopathy:
Consult a homeopath or naturopath to find a homeopathic remedy suited to your condition.

*Excerpted and edited from my Future Health Now Encyclopedia eBook.

NOTE: If cortisone has been used for a long time before switching to natural remedies, the skin may go through an aggravation or worsening before getting better.

Too Toxic to Detox!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, May 19, 2011

I have a client who felt too sick to have necessary spinal surgery on her neck. Any attempt at strong internal detoxification was met with worsening of symptoms. However, we did some gentle detoxing and the surgery went extremely well.

After surgery the symptoms of toxicity came back along with lymph node swelling in one armpit as the lymphatic system was helping to clear toxins from the wound. At that point I recommended a concoction of clay and castor oil to be used as a poultice.

It’s a simple recipe. Using a fork, mix clay and castor oil together in a bowl. You can start with 4-6 TBSP of each and add more clay to create a cookie dough consistency. Put the mixture on a small washcloth and place over areas with lots of lymph nodes: breasts, liver, armpits, groin and according to the condition you want to treat.

Use first aid tape to attach the washcloth to your body to keep it in place. Tape a plastic bag on top to keep the castor oil from oozing out onto your clothes. My client taped a poultice to her sore armpit in the morning and then replaced it with a new poultice at night. She found that she slept deep and long when she did this. She also found that the poultice took away the indigestion, heart palpitations, anxiety and most of the detox symptoms she was having. She said “I once again became the person I remembered myself to be.”

How cool and miraculous is that!

Clay packs are indicated for inflammation with signs of swelling, redness and heat around the affected joint or boil. Clay draws toxins out through the skin into the clay. Use one time and then discard.

Castor oil packs increase circulation to an area and stimulate the lymphatic system to mobilize toxins aiding in detoxification. They are excellent for organ pain, especially of the liver, pancreas and kidneys and help relieve muscle spasms.

The combination together more than doubles the results!

I use Heritage Products castor oil. My recommendation for a superior form of poulticing clay is LL’s Magnetic Clay. You can also use it for clay detox baths (that even neutralize radiation) and acne face masks.

Mastering Miracles

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, May 15, 2011

People have been asking for a report on how my godson, Lorne (age 21), is recovering from falling off a 3-story building. Here is the Facebook entry from Lorne’s father that was just posted to give you evidence of the power of love and prayer.

Reiner writes: “Two weeks ago today, Gayle and I arrived at the ICU to witness the horror of our boy’s condition. It is now two weeks later and he has more than risen to the many challenges put to him in the recovery process.

He has endured two major surgical interventions (back surgery and wired jaws), the existence of copious tubes and monitors strapped to his person night and day… the ceaseless monitoring, turning, blood sampling, x-rays, CT scans, MRIs… trachea tube and feeding peg insertions and in the midst of this barrage.

You have all been there with him and us and one another. To try to define what your dedication and kindness has meant to us and to Lorne, would be well beyond the meager constraints of words. The evidence is clearly manifest in that he is here and fighting and healing and trying to reach out to us all.

There can be no clearer expression of gratitude and love than watching Lorne slowly coming back from a place we wish no one to have to experience.

Today on this rainy day he is calm and seems to be concentrating on resting which for the healing process is so vital… visitors are coming and going and he is present but very laid back on the new pain drugs they are giving him.

He keeps trying to get up and this is only a glimpse of the determination yet to challenge all of us… but can simultaneously be perceived as a sign of progress in the progression toward recovery.

He opens those big blue eyes most of the time… sees us, investigates the ceiling, checks to reacquaint himself with the machines hovering over him… then just as calmly closes his eyes again. So it goes…

A large, ever- expanding embrace goes out to you all.

Much love to you.

Reinhard, Gayle and Lorne

P.S. Just heard that Lorne is currently being moved to the 12th floor to room 1240 yeahhhhh a ICU graduate

Squirrelling away Magnesium

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, May 13, 2011

I love squirrels, always have. Years ago I was pretty shook up when I learned that my nephews used them for target practice and called them tree rats. Now it’s payback time.

Today I’d like to introduce you to Karen Clark from Lovely Lita’s Sheltering Tree Foundation. Karen is a squirrel lover and a magnesium lover too! Her website is dedicated to a now-deceased squirrel called Lovely Lita.

Here’s what Karen recently wrote to me:

“I rescue and rehabilitate squirrels and I found that many places tell you to give calcium to these rodents but never mention magnesium. I was having some issues I could not explain with the squirrels, including seizures and even death while they were on the calcium that I was told would keep them from having these issues.

I found some articles by you about the importance of magnesium and I started adding that to the squirrels intake. Since then I have had no more problems with seizures and the squirrels health has improved considerably. I think the advice I was getting was putting too much calcium into their system and depleting the magnesium.

Since reading your book I have added magnesium to my own intake and am telling everybody about adding it to their lives. The heart patients tell me that they have so many problems with the drugs they are taking. I told them that from what I have read in your book that they might be able to reduce the drugs but need to talk to their doctors.

Thank you for your wonderful book and for helping me get the squirrels on a healthy path as well.”

Go to www.squirrellady.org and view her very sweet site. You can click on the link Emergencies and Squirrel Questions Forum and join in the discussion. You can search the word magnesium if you want to focus on that topic.

That’s the good news. But the bad news is that Karen is unable to take on any more sick and injured squirrels. But in this regard you can help. You can donate money or buy a T-shirt to help feed these animals and provide them with magnesium!

Facebook Prayers

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, May 11, 2011

For the past 11 days I’ve been experiencing the power of focused group-prayer. My godson, DJ (Lorne) fell off a 3-story building in Montreal while climbing up to the roof to watch the sunrise.

Very quickly some of DJ’s college friends put up a Facebook page called Everybody Loves Lorne. Dozens of family and friends gather inside and outside the hospital, singing, praying, meditating and providing hands-on-healing. People from all over the world offer distance-prayer and distance-healing.

The rule for what I call the Lazarus Effect is to hold the person going through a life challenge in their perfection. That’s what Jesus did. He never called it healing. He simply saw people who asked him for help as whole.

That’s what we are doing with DJ. Holding the intention and energy that DJ is fully recovered and his physical body is just catching up with that reality. It’s hardest on my dear friends, his parents. They have to listen to the doctors who feel they must tell them the worst. But then they quickly focus on how amazingly well DJ is doing and the support of hundreds of friends and the power of their love.

Go to Facebook and read the Everybody Loves Lorne page; it’s very inspiring. You can join if you like. You can also make your own Facebook page for your loved one when they need your support. It makes this form of social media very powerful and very meaningful.
