    Re: Coconut oil: Can it cure hypothyroidism? - Discuss

    As usual I've forgotten all about it Dawn I'm far too busy being hot and vengeful

    Went to the doctor and ranted at him about my symptoms and he sent me away with antibiotic eye drops, more of which I get in my mouth than in my eyes

    for reminding me,

    I bought coconut oil from iherb.com - the Money Saving Expert site recommended it for its quality, for its price, and for the supplier's reliability. I can certainly recommend the supplier but I've only used the CO for frying a few things like onions (it seems to have a high burning point and sizzles nicely) and eggs/bacon, but it has a definite flavour that I'm trying to get used to.

    It's probably going to be wasted, therapeutically

    I have not tried it yet...never actually seen it anywhere! Does anyone know if they sell it in Holland and Barrat? I have read all sorts of good stuff about coconut oil and know I came accross lots of smoothie recipies on the net with it in but not sure where now. If I find them I will post a link here.

    If coconut oil is good for you then is eating the coconut flesh not just as good? Sorry for my ignorance but I have no idea if coconut oil is extracted from the actual coconut or from the tree or what LOL.

    I bought a big tub from http://www.iherb.com (Holland & Barrett's version doesn't claim to be cold pressed so apparently is not recommended, it could be that heating oil changes its properties, especially of the fats) but I keep forgetting I've got it. I believe there's something about coconut oil's saturated fats (medium-chain fatty acids) that is very good for one.

    There is a huge thread on Money Saving Expert (I don't envy you ploughing through it but I'm too rusty to be trusted on the facts):

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/sho ... oconut+oil

    From my own experience I found it a superb shallow frying medium, but it does have a slight sweet coconutty flavour so you'd either have to get used to it or save it for curries, or maybe ratatouille style dishes.

    Re: Coconut oil: Can it cure hypothyroidism? - Discuss

    Just bought some 'cold pressed virgin coconut oil' - tried some on a spoon, bit like eating coconut flavoured lard lol! I think I'll stick to using it for stir-frys. I love that we're supposed to be eating saturated fats and more salt - two things I love & one of the plus sides to being hypothyroid . How do you add smilies?

    I wonder... what about mashing Green & Black's cocoa powder into it... cocoa is "good for you", lots of antioxidants, G&B's is organic. Maybe we could make it taste and feel like gooey chocolate, with judicious add-ins

    Any more ideas?

    I have started taking a teaspoon of this each morning...I havnt really noticed much difference in my energy levels (maybe a bit). I like cocnut oil dissolved in half a cup of warm water with juice of half a lemon and a raw egg mixed together thoroughly. It sounds horrible but if tastes lovely! Well it tastes good if you like lemon curd!

    I do use it on my skin after a bath to. I think it works better than moisteriser.
