  1. i agree with what you have said about spatter coc oil while cooking and does take the redness away.

  2. Katie, according to the blood type diet, my blood type should not consume coconut. For years I have read about the health benefits of coconut, particularly coconut oil, and I struggle to believe certain blood types would not benefit from consuming it.

    I am very curious as to what your opinion is regarding the blood type diet and if you believe certain blood types should avoid coconut oil.

    Thank you, Katie, for your website and all of the wonderful information you provide.

      • Just out of curiosity Katie, what is your blood type?

  3. Hi Katie! In this podcast your guest talks about coconut crystals or sugar. Is that a good sweetener to use? You didn’t mention it in your more recent podcast about sugar. A podcast about good sweeteners to use would be great and how to use them, like substitution amounts, etc.

  4. Hi There,
    I am hoping you can help me please as I can’t find any one to answer my questions on Tumeric.
    I take Tumeric and want to buy more but from what I’ve read I should take the purer form Curcumin but apparently some people can’t break it down to get the benefits.
    How do I know if it’s being broken down within my body, should i just stick to Tumeric.
    Would it be good for bursitis as well because it is an anti inflammatory ?

    Thanks for your time.
    PS, I’m addicted to your site. Since I found it I can’t get off it !!

  5. I have tried using coconut oil in the past, and notice it acts almost as a caffeine to me. I can’t sleep, I have insomnia, and abnormal anxiety over things. Have you ever heard of other people having the same reaction? It’s disappointing since coconut oil is such a staple in so many healthy recipes.

  6. Below is a copy/paste of some feedback that I left for Alternative Daily after purchasing the Coconut Oil Secret E-book. As you read, you’ll find that I’m feeling like this tactics employed by this site are untrustworthy, and wanted to share it with Wellness Mama, because I’ve been following the blog for a couple of years now, and am now a subscriber to the podcast:

    I heard about Alternative Daily on the Wellness Mama podcast, and I thought what was being said was relevant and interesting to me, so I went to check out the information online. I purchased the book because I want to support the work you do, but I was absolutely disgusted by the ordering process. All of those screens to get to the point of purchase are a real turnoff. The teeny-tiny print to opt out of the upsells was also really annoying. You should treat discerning consumers like what they are, not like cattle to be herded from transaction to transaction. The entire ordering process reminded me strongly of all of the ‘miracle’ weight loss pills and remedies that are sold online, or even like the job finder programs that are sold online.

    First there’s a long list of half-truths, written in such a way to scare the potential customer into purchasing the item. Then there are several more screens of advertisements that are meant to do the same thing. Please stop treating us like cattle, and give us a proper purchasing experience. Your website, your information, and your products will feel more legitimate than they do when couched in mystery, fear, and coercion. I will be sharing this information with Wellness Mama, as well, because I trusted that website to turn me on to relevant and legitimate health information, and I feel quite bamboozled.

    Thanks for taking my feedback seriously. The buying experience is important to me, and hopefully to all consumers. I don’t want to feel like I’m buying health information from a carnival barker, or snake-oil salesman.

  7. I am researching thyme in relation to treating gout. Do you have a recipe for a cream I could make? How would you suggest treating gout?

  8. just a little info i like to share.. a friend of mine who i well into nineties wanted to share with me about alternative medicine. so i asked what she wants to share with me….
    this is what she said.. ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE IS TODAY’S MEDICINE AND WHAT SHE GREW UP WITH IS THE TRUE MEDICINE….. WHAT SHE GREW UP WITH HAS BEEN AROUND FOR MANY THOUSANDS OF YEARS. SHE CAN NOT UNDERSTAND WHY SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR THAT LONG IS CALLED ALTERNATIVE….
    Just wanted to share because she is RIGHT…..

  9. HELLO. A FRIEND OF MINE GAVE ME YOUR ADDRESS. I CHECKED IT OUT TODAY, AND I AM VERY
    PLEASED WITH ALL THAT I HAVE SEEN SO FAR. I WAS SPECIFICALLY LOOKING FOR SOMETHING MY FRIEND SAID: “ABOUT 3 INGREDIENT TONICS.” DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THAT? WHERE WOULD I FIND IT?
    I MAY DO SOME MORE SEARCHING ON MY OWN TOO. I WILL SAVE ALOT OF THESE IN MY FAVORITES
    AND PRINT ALOT OF INFO TOO FOR SOME BINDERS I HAVE MADE UP WITH HELPFUL HINTS IN ALL CATEGORIES. ITS KIND OF IRONIC,- MY GRANDSON HAS LABELED ME “MAMA” SINCE HE WAS OLD ENOUGH TO TALK, AND I AM 67 YEARS OLD AND NOT VERY HEALTHY. SO WELLNESS MAMA SEEMS TO FIT INTO MY
    LIFE PERFECTLY. I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY INFO I CAN GET. THANKS. STEPHANIE
