Made from the fruit of the coconut, this oil has been promoted as a better alternative to butter. Consumers seem to have bought into the hype that it’s among the healthier options when it comes to oils, and vegans, who eat no animal fat, may use it as a butter substitute (it’s a white solid at room temperature). However, coconut oil is high in saturated fat, so it’s recommended that it’s used sparingly. A study conducted in 2016 found that people who consumed coconut oil had higher LDL cholesterol levels than those who consumed unsaturated fats. Therefore, coconut oil might not be as healthy as everyone says it is.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
