Coconut Oil

I started my husband on 3 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil about 9 months ago to try and help with his arthritis. So far it has not helped with this problem but he went in for his bi- annual check up where they stick the camera down your throat. He has Barrett's which is a constant irritation of the esophagus. It can lead to cancer and the doctor told him it was not curable and that he would have to live with this for the rest of his life. All they can do is keep tabs on it.

Well, much to the doctors surprise that after evaluating this chronic disease for over 5 years, it was completely gone. The only thing I can contribute it to is the oil since nothing else has changed in his diet. I was jumping off the walls for him. Now to get that arthritis!
