Findings from one of the world’s leading authorities on fats and oils,

Dr. Mary Enig, a Ph.D. nutritionist/biochemist has undertaken much of the coconut oil research in more recent years. Dr. Enig has classified coconuts as a "functional food," which provides health benefits above and beyond the basic nutrients. She has specifically identified lauric acid as a key ingredient in coconut products.

Fostering Hope in the Battle with Alzheimer's Disease

Book Review: The Dynamite Story of Alzheimer's Recoveries  
by Allen K. Golden, BA Ed
Reverse Alzheimer's Disease? Yes! It can happen!
Lisa Davis (Council Bluffs, IA) 
After conducting extensive research the author found that Alzheimer's Disease effects can be indeed turned around. There are cases cited where people who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease took not only prescribed medicines but also simple treatments available from health food stores. Amazing how in just a very short period of time people were able to go back to productive lives! 
This book offers real hope which can be experienced in such a simple process. I really like the appendix resources where tracking can be done of dosages and progress. Also the caregiver's resource was very nicely done. The easy to understand language of this book helped me versus too much technical information to sift through. There is a lot of technical information which is then explained in layman's terms. 
I highly recommend this book! I read the entire book in a day because it was just that interesting! Also, my father had Alzheimer's and if I had this information before now I could have helped him. He died of cancer but the alzheimer's showed up in most areas of his life. 
About the Author Allen Golden is a man who has experience with healthy alternatives to traditional medicine. When he learned how it is was possible to combat Alzheimer's Disease he moved forward to find out more. Spending countless hours doing medical research, Golden was able to find significant journal articles and other information to shed light on his research. Knowing that it is now possible to treat Alzheimer's and many other diseases with some very simple ingredients, along with pharmaceuticals, he had to share the wealth of his findings. Once the fire was in his heart he simply had to find more information to support this theory. 
It is his sincere hope that people who are battling Alzheimer's and other diseases will be able to try alternatives and find success. While there are no absolute guarantees, these findings foster hope in the never-ending battle with Alzheimer's Disease.

Tempura-Style Coconut Shrimp

10-12 large fresh or frozen shrimp (if frozen, thaw quickly in a bowl of tepid water)
1/2 cup regular white flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (to make your shrimp spicy)
1 egg
1/3 cup ice water
1/2 cup dry shredded unsweetened coconut
1 cup coconut oil

Remove shells from shrimp, but leave tails on for easier cooking and eating. Set aside.
Make the batter by first mixing the dry ingredients together: flour, baking powder, salt, and cayenne pepper (if using).
Crack the egg into the flour mixture, then add the ice water, stirring to break the yolk and form a fairly smooth batter (don't worry if there are a few small lumps).
Deep fry shrimps at about 375 F, until they are brown.

Serves 4 as an appetizer, tapas plate, or party food.
Excellent eaten on its own, or served with a dip. ENJOY!
