Miracle of a Book!
Bruce Fife has done it again!
Just when I thought that Saturated Fat May
Save Your Life was perhaps the greatest health book ever written,
along comes The Coconut Oil Miracle.
This book should be at the top of the "must
read" list for anyone who is seriously interested in taking charge of
Coconut oil and it's associated Medium Chain
Fatty Acids are indeed true health miracles. They prevent & even reverse
everything from infections to viruses (including the flu) to germs and
bacteria of many types. And it does so far better than any medical drugs
can, and without any side effects what so ever.
Of all the lies and "half truths" being
perpetuated by the medical establishment, drug companies, the media and
special interest groups, such as the American Soybean Association
(400,000 members strong), perhaps the biggest & most deadly lie is that
saturated fats are bad for you and that vegetable oils (used for cooking
and as preservatives for prepackaged foods) are
healthy for us.
The Coconut Oil Miracle explodes these
lies once and for all, and provides concrete proof to support the
I have been involved in the nutritional
supplement & health food store fields for 8 years, and I can honestly
tell you this is the kind of information millions of health-conscious
Americans are desperately seeking.
Not only will it be impossible for you to put
this book down, you should show it to everybody that you truly care
about, especially those that suffer from excessive weight, heart
disease, cancer, diabetes and immune system disorders.
And show The Coconut Oil Miracle to your
doctor. It's 99% likely he/she will not know this information.
And if you or someone you know is pregnant /
breast-feeding, it is essential that they know about the importance of
healthy breast milk to their child (especially if they use coconut oil
Your /their child's life may depend upon it!
Don't wait - order The Coconut Oil Miracle – now!
Good-bye Athletes foot!!!
By using only one tip in this
book, my husband was able to get rid of an athletes foot problem he had
suffered with for months. He had tried EVERY over-the-counter
preparation. Finally went to the doctor. He was given a prescription for
a 30 day supply of pills. The cost was over $200! Counseling with the
pharmacist and discovering that PERMANENT health damage could result
made us decide to NOT use the pills.
We did find the cure for the athlete’s foot in
this book--the cost was $3.99 (swansonvitamins.com) without any side
effects. Caprylic acid! One 600 mg soft gel daily until the bottle was
finished. Coconut oil contains caprylic acid. We also started using
virgin coconut oil and canned coconut milk--be sure to buy the brand
with the HIGHEST fat content. Ten ounces of the canned coconut milk
daily is enough to provide a healing dose of coconut oil. It can be used
in smoothies, pudding, on oatmeal, in cooking, in soups and stews. I
also add some to my tea or coffee. Simply refrigerate the canned coconut
milk after opening. It will solidify in the refrigerator (melting temp.
76 degrees) – Spoon onto oatmeal or into hot beverages.
I also need to share that the reason I found
this info on coconut oil is because I began having thyroid problems and
was doing some web searching for info. SOY was causing me to grow a
goiter and causing other thyroid problems. The problems reversed after
eliminating soy from my diet--no small task as it is in EVERYTHING.
(Note: lecithin is soy). Try doing a web search by entering: soy danger.
This book is well written and easy to
understand. I am buying additional copies to share with others.
Kort Kramer “Art, Music,
Book and Movie Enthusiast”
I admit it. I bought into all
the big business hype about how bad coconut oil was for me.
After reading this book and altering my diet, I
see how wrong I was to believe the misinformation I was being fed. The
saturated fat in coconut oil is actually good for you and helps keep you
healthy in so many ways. An interesting and amazing book backed up by
history and fact. I just wish it had not been repetitive at times and at
other times a bit hard to my layman's sensibilities to understand, but
those are small quibbles. I enjoyed reading it and got through it fairly
quickly. You'll want to keep a copy for yourself and get one for someone
you love, it's that convincing!
I've been using coconut oil and avoiding other
vegetable and hydrogenated oils since reading it and I feel better and
have more energy. Read it for yourself and become a convert.
Great Info--Eye Opening
I very much enjoyed reading
this book. Much information is given on the health benefits (yes
BENEFITS) of saturated fats, the "smear" campaign of the vegetable oil
industry, and practical application of coconut oil for many health
problems. Coconut oil DEFINITELY helps me to eat less and have more
energy. It took a couple of days for it to kick in, but now when I eat a
meal with 1 T of coconut oil, I don't have to eat for HOURS, where
previously, I felt compelled to eat every 2 hours--and thus, overeating.
The coconut oil is keeping me healthy; it eliminated a sinus infection
much quicker than antibiotics, without the side effects. Please look
into this book--it can seriously improve your health.
Nuts About Coconuts
Michael Czjka Jur
If you've always suspected
that coconuts are good for you because so many people have been eating
them for so long with only positive health outcomes then you're right!!!
What you probably don't know is exactly why they're good for you.
You probably don't suspect exactly how many things coconuts are good for
This book is well written, easy to read, explains things in fairly
simple language and repeats things regularly so you will remember.
It's full of information about things like: losing weight, keloid
scarring, diabetes, the immune system (anti-bacterial, anti-viral),
beauty, cancer & heart disease! That's the short list. Most came as a
total surprise. For someone who though they had read most of the key
health info it was a bit of a shock!
It's even better because they've bothered to explain how it works. Once
you know how it works you can then go and apply the knowledge to things
they haven't mentioned. It's a bit like giving a man a fish or teaching
him how to fish! You'll be a bit of an expert on all kinds of fats by
the time you finish this book!
It helped pull together other information on fats in a coherent fashion.
I couldn't put this book down!
If you're dubious... don't delay. It's definitely money well spent.
This book contains a lot of
information that is mostly unknown to the public, due largely to the
politics involving powerful agribusiness interests in this country. (I'd
really like to give it only 4-1/2 stars, however, due to the poor
editing.) Learn about what is probably one of the healthiest oils you
can consume, and yet has become difficult to find in grocery stores. And
it's sad to learn that we've been pushing less-healthful oils (corn,
soy, etc.) on developing countries as a replacement for their coconut
oil, with the result that the people there are suffering more
degenerative disease. The author has also written a book called Eat
Fat Look Thin, which details a low-carbohydrate coconut diet to help
with weight loss.
The Healing Miracles of Coconut Oil
I have suffered with digestive
problems my entire life. After reading this book and incorporating
coconut oil and coconut milk into my diet, I am finally recovering! It
truly does seem to be "too good to be true", but in fact, coconut oil,
is a miraculous food for this generation. It is very easy to switch from
vegetable oils to coconut oil in all recipes. My family loves the
change, and we are now enjoying wonderful smoothies and creamed soups
that were "forbidden" because of the high fat content. But, switch to
healthy fats and see what happens! A side benefit I am seeing is weight
reduction without even trying! This book is a MUST for those who desire
to regain their health and protect the health of their children.
A Book to Save Your Life!
Fife proceeds early in the
book with an anecdote. In response to his assertion to dinner friends
that coconut oil is the healthiest oil one can use, one of them
countered that "Coconut oil is unhealthy; it can cause heart disease,"
to which Fife replied, "That must be why all the Pacific Islanders died
off hundreds of years ago.
Fife takes the reader carefully through the
chemistry of fats with brevity and clarity. Lay readers can easily
understand him as they are led through an explanation of the differences
between the various fats.
"Healing miracles" is not an overstatement to
describe the effects of coconut oil. Fife details some 40 different
health benefits from the use of this oil--one hesitates to list them for
fear of sounding gullible or lunatic--and he thoroughly documents his
work with research findings.

I am not sure of all the
claims in the book but I applied coconut oil liberally on my toddler's
scalp and it cleared up the remainder of her cradle cap. She also had
some dry patches of skin that coconut oil cleared up. I'd used baby oil,
and medicated shampoos to no avail. Coconut oil worked when nothing else
The Healing Miracles of Coconut Oil
After reading this book I
threw out my current oils and changed the way I cooked and looked at
food. I bought this book for my mother and I have an extra copy for
other people to read. As a member of the health care profession people
come to me all the time for information.
I was totally surprised by what has happened to
all of us and what is being sold to us as "HEALTHY". Even our doctors
don't know the truth. My doctor is getting a copy of this book to read.
I now use this oil on my skin on a regular basis
and being in my mid forties the feeling of my skin is like that of my
I plan on being around for many years and this
information will help me be much healthier.
I am very glad to be given
this information. Thank you Bruce Fife! I am ordering his other books
for my library.

I was angered by this book.
That is, at the soybean and vegetable oil industry, pharmaceutical
companies and the medical establishment. I've never been big into
conspiracy theories, but after reading this I was shocked. I went out
and bought 2 tubs of coconut oil and I've been telling everyone I can
about it and this book. I know and am close to people with heart
disease, diabetes, lupus, IBS, and cancer. Even if you are not sick,
coconut oil is beneficial in preventing disease and promoting overall
wellness. I have started reading ingredient labels at the grocery store
and it's amazing how prevalent vegetable and soybean oil is in the foods
people eat. It doesn't make sense to me why the big businesses say that
something Nature put on this earth for us to use would be so bad for us,
while the over-processed, refined and rancid vegetable and soy oils are
so much better. Oh, wait, I know the reason: money.

I had my gallbladder out at a young age and I've always had trouble
since then with oils. Now I know why since this book goes into great
depth in explaining how oils are utilized by the human body.
I have suffered from chronic Candida infestations for years, thanks to
this book, I'm now getting the yeast outbreaks under control and finally
have hope of eliminating them for good. I saw immediate relief of my
pollen related allergies after the first day of using coconut milk on my
morning cereal. I highly recommend this book.
This is an outstanding book
and a must read for everyone who is concerned about the food they take.

My Arteries Are Clogged - With
Unfortunately there are only a
handful of doctors and health professionals exposing all the myths and
total nonsense that gets delivered to us through the media. I still see
articles in magazines by doctors telling me how bad coconut oil is and
how it clogs my arteries. I have used coconut oil for a year now and
feel great. I like to mix virgin organic coconut oil into my organic
peanut butter to smooth it up. Makes it taste great! I melt it on my
veggies and cook with it exclusively and yet I am fit as a fiddle. So
where are the reviews from the people who consistently consume coconut
oil and have clogged arteries – anybody? I didn't think so!
Very informative and Easy Read!
This is a great book. It gets
scientific enough so that you understand and believe the miracle that is
coconut oil, but not so scientific as to frustrate or bore the reader. I
read this book in one sitting and although i had cooked with coconut oil
before, on advice from a nutritionist, i had never known about the
applications for skin and hair. My skin has never been so happy! It's
infuriating how we've been lied to by the criminal agribusinesses in
this country. While reading this book, I kept thinking to myself why
doesn’t everyone know this?!?! Hopefully word can spread about this book
and the miracle of the coconut!
New Info on Coconut Oil!
Maria S. Miles
If you would like to loose
weight, fight infections (bacterial, viral or fungal,) or improve your
family's nutrition, coconut oil will be of great benefit. The scientific
studies to back up Dr. Fife's assertions are listed as well as easy to
understand explanations of fat and oil makeup. Political and economic
intrigue are discussed as the reasons for the untruthful maligning of
coconut oil. It is shown as a natural, centuries tried and tested aid to
health, beauty and longevity. Both its use to alleviate specific health
problems and its benefits in preventing many modern ailments are
AYURVEDA Uses Coconut Oil---for Last
The time has
come---finally---for all, including Western science, to recognize the
extreme benefits of the coconut. Fife's book is excellent and greatly
welcomed. The book called AN ELEMENTARY TEXTBOOK OF AYURVEDA by the Yale
medical doctor, Frank John Ninivaggi, M.D., did acknowledge the uses of
coconut oil as long as 6,000 years ago, and currently in Ayurvedic
medicine---the first medical tradition begun in India and still
practiced today. I highly recommend and endorse Fife's book. Take a look
at Ayurveda, too!
Unbelievable! The lies we've
been told for 20 years about saturated fats, how unhealthy it was for
us, and how vegetable and soybean oils were the best option for overall
health. After reading this book, I know why Americans, especially our
kids, are so overweight! This book will open your eyes to what we've
been missing out on all these years. Buy one for yourself and one for
someone you care about.
Everyone Should Know About Coconut Oil!
Bruce Fife does a phenomenal
job of explaining about coconut oil and why it's good for you. Read all
of his coconut books!
Very Informative Read
This book is a great source on
the benefits of coconut oil! It can your life and health!
Coconut Oil - Great Book
This is a great book for
anyone who wants to improve their health. It is well written and easy to
read. I have switched my family over to using coconut oil in cooking.
There are some recipes in the back to help you on your way. I highly
recommend this book.
THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT COCONUT OIL
Richard C. Johnson
This will completely change
any pre-conceived ideas you may have about coconut oil. Lots of
wonderful and informative information that you should have already known
a real education. My wife and I have found lots of useful ways to use
the oil. One of the best ways is use instead of butter on a toasted
bagel or English muffin and then cover with peanut butter, low cal is
fine. And, you may also use the oil in replacing vegetable oil for
cooking. But, don't let me give up all of the secrets from the book –
Extremely informative and useful. Well worth the purchase.
Mrs. F. Bowles
This is a very informative
book about the many uses and advantages of coconut oil. Personally I am
using it on my skin and hair and also cooking with it. I am 71 but see a
real difference in my skin. I recommend it to everyone.
This book is a must for you,
if you are interested in what you eat. After reading it you understand
very well why coconut oil is good for you. The book is well written and
it has answered all my questions. I highly recommend!
My neighbor recommended this
book to me a few months ago. He and his wife have been using coconut oil
since he had open heart surgery a few years ago. They use it in place of
butter/margarine. They also stir it into their morning tea.
I was so astonished to learn that coconut oil is healthy that I had to
order this book to learn more about it.
I would definitely recommend this book. It is very informative and very
easy to understand. The author lists so many different methods of use
and benefits of use, (hair care, skin care, first aid and several
recipes). I have actually ordered coconut oil and plan to start
incorporating it into my life

This Book Delivers on Facts and
The Coconut Oil Miracle
(Previously published as The Healing Miracle of Coconut Oil)by Bruce
Fife is a highly acclaimed book about coconut oil. Bruce Fife provides
all the answers about commons myths and misconceptions about coconut
oil. Eating coconut oil on a regular basis can reduce your chances of
suffering a heart attack! Coconut oil is composed of a group of unique
fat molecules known as medium-chain fatty acids. 'Though they are
technically classified as saturated fats, this fat can actually protect
you from getting a heart attack or suffering a stroke. A much more
accurate way to judge heart disease risk is to separate the two types of
cholesterol. Therefore, the ratio of the bad to good cholesterol
(LDL/HDL) is universally recognized as a far more accurate indicator of
heart disease risk. Because of coconut oil's tendency to increase HDL,
the cholesterol ratio improves and thus decreases risk of heart disease.
People who traditionally consume large quantities of coconut oil as part
of their ordinary diet have a very low incidence of heart disease and
have normal blood cholesterol levels. This has been well supported by
numerous studies. The research shows that those people who consume large
quantities of coconut oil have remarkably good cardiovascular health.
Research has demonstrated that medium-chain fats in coconut oil protect
against heart disease and may one day even be used as a treatment to
Coconut oil consumption has many factors associated with a reduced risk
of heart disease compared to other dietary oils namely:
* Improved cholesterol readings
* Lower body fat deposition
* Higher survival rate
* Reduced tendency to form blood clots
* Fewer uncontrolled free radicals in cells
* Low levels of blood and liver cholesterol
* Higher antioxidant reserves in cells
* Lower incidence of heart disease in population studies.
From this evidence alone coconut oil should be viewed as heart healthy
or at least benign as far as heart disease is concerned.
But there is another factor that is even more important, that reveals
coconut oil as not simply a benign bystander but a very important player
in the battle against heart disease. So remarkable is it that it may
soon become a powerful new weapon used against heart disease. Heart
disease, stroke, and atherosclerosis account for nearly half of all the
deaths in the United States. Statistically, one out of every two people
you know will die from one of these cardiovascular conditions. In
countries where people eat a lot of coconut products cardiovascular
disease is much less frequent. It appears that by simply using coconut
oil in you daily diet in place of other oils you can achieve a
remarkable degree of protection from heart disease and stroke.
