Chronic Fatigue and Virgin Coconut Oil

By Bruce Fife, N.D.
2001 Reprinted with permission of the author.

Coconut oil may be one of the best solutions to chronic fatigue syndrome currently available. Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), once considered to be an imaginary ailment, is now recognized as a bona fide illness. While its cause is still pretty much a mystery, it has become a problem of growing concern. It is estimated that some three million Americans and 90 million people worldwide are affected by it.

CFS is characterized by a relatively sudden onset of extreme fatigue, often following an infectious illness. Symptoms may include any of the following: muscle weakness, headache, memory loss, mental confusion, recurring infections, low-grade fever, swollen lymph glands, severe exhaustion following moderate physical activity, depression, anxiety attacks, dizziness, rashes, allergies, and autoimmune reactions. Symptoms that persist for six months or more are a strong indication of CFS.

By using coconut oil liberally with meals, it may provide a source of relief for those suffering from chronic fatigue, whatever its cause.  Because the medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil are absorbed quickly by the tissues and converted into energy, it seems logical to assume that those suffering from chronic fatigue would gain a great deal of benefit.  Further information can be found in The Healing Miracles of Coconut Oil by Dr. Bruce Fife, ND.
