Dr. Bruce Fife explores in depth the research about how Arthritis and Fibromyalgia are related to infections in the mouth and body and how Coconut Oil may help in his book “The New Arthritis Cure – Eliminate Arthritis and Fibromyalgia Pain Permanently”.
His book is referenced to a plethora of medical journals and other sources.
Connection between bacteria and infection in the mouth and Arthritis and Fibromyalgia
There are around 10 billion bacteria which are made up by 600 different species, as well as viruses and fungi which live in the mouth. These not only can cause problems to our teeth and gums but also can affect the health of the rest of our body, since they travel through the blood stream.
Dr. Fife quotes several of Dr. Weston Price‘s studies about the connection between infected teeth and arthritis and other diseases. Dr. Price implanted extracted teeth under the skin of rabbits which then developed the same disease the ‘previous owner’ had, or, no disease, if the tooth was steril.
The information in regards to root canals was a real eye opener.
Dr. Fife shares a lot of stories how the health returned when the oral health was restored.
Is arthrtis only a disease of the elderly?
No. There are several example in Dr. Fife’s book that show that arthritis can affect people at any age. ‘A 2 month old girl developed arthritis in her left hip and several other joints after she had received antibiotics for diarrhea and then developed candida.’ (page 31)
Coconut Oil – Why and how it may be of Benefit
Since many micro-organisms that are associated with arthritis are destroyed by medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) consuming coconut oil, which is rich in MCFAs, could be very useful for relieving the symptoms of arthritis.
Dr. Fife relates a lot of stories how the health returned when the oral health was restored and/or when people added coconut oil to their diet.
When people have included coconut oil in their diet/replaced all oil with coconut oil and/or added oil pulling to their daily regime, they lost weight and their health has improved.
Dr. R. L. Meliodon, DC who suffered from Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia for 6 years regained his energy due to a 70% decrease of pain and was able to work for 12 hours (instead of 8 hours) (page 94)
One of the Chapters in the book is called “Lighten the load” which looks at how weight adds to the problem of arthritis.
Dr. Fife’s readers have reported back to him stories about the relief they got from arthritis from using coconut oil and some of them lost 15 to 55 pounds.
Possible Cleansing reactions could include flu, body aches, rashes, nausea, fatigue. This is part of the process of the release of toxins and evidence of the effectiveness. The reactions can last a few day and sometimes weeks and there can be more than one. Arthritis may intensify as result of the cleansing process. (page 155)
“Coconut oil can be helpful in relieving the pain of arthritis and fibromyalgia, however, it should not be considered a complete cure unlesss it removes the source of the infection. In most cases, that source will be in the mouth. Simply eating the oil is not enough to kill oral infection. Good oral hygiene combined with oil pulling, will pull infection out of the mouth. Taking coconut oil internally will rid it from the body. These steps, plus the other five steps in the Arthritis Battle Plan should be taken for complete success.
Even after joint pain has gone, incorporating coconut oil into your daily diet is an excellent way to stay healthy. If you are fighting an active infection, I recommend taking 3 to 4 tablespoons a day. Once the infection is under control, a good maintenance dose is 1 to 3 tablespoons daily.” (page 94)
As well lots of references to research papers the book also contains lots of people’s stories as well as a 7 day whole food challenge, inflammation busters, a chapter on exercise, an arthritis battle plan and much, much more information related to other diseases.
The chapter “Nature’s Antibiotics” contains lots of stories about how Coconut oil has helped people with various diseases including full blown AIDS.
