The Omega Balance: Getting Smart About Inflammation
« on: April 05, 2013, 03:26:14 PM »
Hi, Gang! :) :) :)

Everyday, research doctors are getting closer and closer to the causes of most diseases that plague us today.
And these "causes" are found in what we eat!

Last year, we learned from heart surgeon Dr. Lundell, that digestible carbs cause arterial inflammation.
Which, in turn, is responsible for heart disease.

It seems that Omega-6 oils may also cause inflammation!!! :o

Here's a 12 minute video from CBN.com regarding Omega-6 oils and inflammation.
The good news is that if we balance them with Omega-3 oils, we can cancel their ill effects.

Yea I saw it also on CBN and also read it in the Paleo Solution book so I also consume coconut oil that helps to balance omega 6's effects.

Hi Jay! :)

I started consuming coconut oil a while back, too.
I buy it Wal-mart. A large plastic container is only about $5. :)

Hi Tony!

Have you had a quick look at Dr. Mercola's information on Omega oils?

It's actually very interesting and let's face it we can never be too way informed, can we?

And by the way thanks for all the input you have on the forum. It's very much appreciated!

That was really interesting Tony.  Coconut oil here costs about $10 for a 500g/500ml (however they work it) jar.  So it  is a bit pricier than the one you can get.  What exactly does the coconut oil do/how do you use it?

The only product I could find in my fridge/pantry that had soybean oil in it was the mayonaise and that was from the States.  I only ever use olive oil or canola. It was interesting to note the change in status if olive oil gets too hot. 
I was thinking though as I watched the video, that most of us would probably not be eating a lot of the products that have the omega 6 because it doesn't fit in with the fts program.

I take a red krill oil supplement which apparently has more (or would that be more potent) omega 3 in it than normal fish oil capsules for its size.

At least with more research, we are all discovering what is actually hurting us.  Still won't change a lot of people's eating habits though.

Hi, Morgan! :)

How coconut oil works is not completely understood.
I've heard, however, about it's many benefits. One of which is preventing, and even reversing Alzheimer's symptoms! :o

I will put some on my GG bran crisps along with natural PB.
Coconut oil is virtually tasteless. So you can add it to most whatever you want.

One interesting thing about it, below 76 degrees F, it's solid. Above that, it melts!

It also adds moisture when baking. I like to put it on my feet at night and cover them with socks once a week.Really makes them smooth. ;)

Hi, Mark! :)

Sorry I missed your post.

The benefits of Omega-3 fats has been well known for quite some time.
It's one of the reasons why fish is so good for us.

I love the fact that those fats will counteract the damage from Omega-6s.
So let's all be sure to get plenty of Omega-6s however we can! :)

Hi, Mark! :)

Coconut oil is wonderful stuff! :) :) :)
I make sure I get some every day to counteract the omega-6 fats in my food.

I used to have a rough patch on my left elbow for most my life.
Since I've been eating coconut oil, it has disappeared! :o
