My Aching Knees

A cousin has been battling MS for years. He was telling me the benefits of coconut oil and then sent me a book. OK, I'm open to alternative therapy.

For the past two weeks, I've added some coconut oil to my diet. Three days ago the pain in my knees diminished. Still there, but I can now walk without "cowboying up". Since I've made no other changes in diet or supplements, I'm giving credit to the coconut oil.

In the book, the author talks about coconut detoxifying the body and warns you may feel worse before you feel better. Says the process takes about a month. I hope he is correct as I'm not feeling at all perky.

Given how my knees feel, I'm going to continue with the coconut oil and hope the rest of the body stops feeling like I've stacked hay for a week.

When it comes to doctors, dentists, and medical procedures, I freely admit to being a gutless wonder.


  1. Interesting! I think I will give it a try. Results later.

    1. Hope it works for you. Look for pure stuff with as little processing as possible.

  2. Beautiful wife had a housecleaning business for over thirty years. She had to give it up just after I retired because pain in her right hand was keeping her awake at night.
    She's been taking five or six different meds for various ailments. (Tell me how they know the different interactions between all those chemicals, considering everyone reacts differently.)
    She dropped the meds she felt were the culprits and her Doc suggested "MSM" might help.
    It did.
    It's cheap.
    If your coconut oil stops working, you might give it a try.

    1. Thank you for the tip. In fact, I've been using MSM for a long time, up to 10,000 mg a day. Probably the only thing that has kept me away from the surgeon's knife. The coconut oil is a recent thing. Three nights ago in bed I felt my right knee "pop" much like cracking a knuckle. Think enough inflammation went away to allow the joint to move to it's proper position.

      Glad MSM worked for your wife. I know others it has helped.

  3. Aw...slather it up and feel better! Hugs!
