Coconut oil helped a patient suffering from Parkinson’s

I discovered an old post I made on the Homeopathyhome Website many years ago in 2013  and felt that I should share it again with visitors to my Website as it may help a patient who presents Parkinson’s disease.

    Coconut oil has improved my life
    by fwes

    I am 74 years old and I have Parkinson’s, diagnosed 3 1/2 years ago and am under conventional drug treatment by Mayo Clinic. A year ago, while taking Mirapex Er (3mg) and Azilect (1Mg), my symptoms had progressed to severe slowness, unsteadiness, chronic stiffness and joint pain, frequent freezing episodes and I dragged my left leg. I had lost all facial expression and my lower left leg was retaining a significant amount of fluid (swelling to about 130%). 

    The addition of Carbidopa/Levodopa (25/100, 3 per day) eased the joint pain and the freezing episodes and restored some of the lost balance, but I still had annoying unsteadiness, slow movement, and could not rise from a low chair unassisted. I still dragged my left leg. I began to have severe lower back pain (under-medicated?) and got some relief from osteopathic manipulation. 

    This past April, I began taking coconut oil, worked up to 8T daily (4 with breakfast, 2 at lunch, 2 at dinner). I saw significant improvements in a couple of days. My wife and friends are astonished at my apparent recovery. It is strikingly noticeable. The reason for this dosage pattern is that I can feel a return of old symptoms 6-8 hours after the last dose, especially the return of dragging my left leg and low back pain. 

    Current status: 
    I move so quickly about the house (kitchen) that my wife and I nearly collide, 
    My speed on the elliptical trainer changed from 2 mph to 3.5 mph in a few days (I had to be careful with this, my knees were not used to this level of performance) 
    I have good balance (stand on one foot, put on pants standing without support, confidently step over small objects 6″, etc) 
    I can rise from any chair unassisted 
    I can do football agility drills (shift right, shift left, step forward, step back in response to random commands) 
    Past and Present Photos show a pronounced change in facial expression 
    I can smell again 
    My osteopath has noticed a pronounced improvement in joint flexibility 
    The swelling in my left leg has disappeared. 
    I walk normally, but still have a tendency to stoop. 
    Back pain has disappeared, but returns quickly if I get behind on dosage 
    My primary care physician has declared my improvement miraculous, he calls me his “clinical trial of one” 

    I have no delusions that this is a cure. I still have Parkinson symptoms, but my quality of life has vastly improved. We are about at the end of 3 months, and the benefits are maintaining. Something real has happened to me. 

    There is solid science behind this: Blog of Dr Mary Newport 
    I strongly encourage you to look a some of her postings on the Internet and to read her book: Alzheimer’s – what if there was a cure. 

    Saturated Fat Myths: The knee-jerk fear of saturated fats has been largely discounted by modern research results. Nonetheless, my doctor did a complete blood workup on me after 2 months: big rise in HDL (good) and all LDL in large particles (good). Healthy blood report! 

    I may be a lucky one. I take my coconut oil on top of hot tea or coffee, hardly noticeable. It can cause indigestion, so start slowly and work up gradually. I saw benefits in a couple of days. In the interest of science, give it a fair trial and then report your results here on the ABC.

    Dr. Newport reports that 19 PD patients have reported benefits to her. Her initial and primary interest is in Alzheimer’s. To the degree that this is a case of benefit from improved nutrition to the damaged brain, there is hope that some of the AD benefits will also apply to the PD patients. USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute began double blind Clinical Trials on 65 AD patients in April, the first clinical trials of coconut oil as a therapy!

    Dear Sir,

    I couldn’t find a post regarding hyperemesis gravidarum, the very rare and most severe form of vomiting and nausea during pregnancy where the pregnant woman loses at least 5% of her weight, get IVs and cannot stand, speak, use eyes without vomiting. The vomiting lasts 20 minutes for each session where breathing is difficult and bile and bleeding is eventual. It happens multiple times an hour and it lasts well into the fifth month though it does get a little less frequent then. The pains in the stomach from hunger are like an animal clawing from the inside, and food must be had every 20 minutes to keep it at bay but is then vomited, water too. Water tastes bad, food tastes bad, sweet tastes bad, dairy is bad, garlic and onion are bad, movement is bad, talking is bad, crying is bad. Have you ever treated this? Thank you

  2. cailanna says:

    I had it at 38. I am unexpectedly pregnant again at 44 though just a few days pregnant. At my age, it may miscarry of course. Last time, symptoms started at the end of five weeks, and my doctor requested hospitalization at the end of six weeks. I was on bedrest until five months. Between month five and seven, I was fine for about six weeks and then it came back for the rest of the pregnancy but less severe. It stopped the moment by placenta was delivered. Just trying to understand if there is anything I can do if this pregnant lasts. There is an 80% chance of recurrence. Thank you, sir.

    • Joe says:

      In you own interest it may be better that you let nature take its course as you are 44 years in age and there is some risk that baby may not be normal.

      I have treated a few cases of morning sickness with a Homeopathic remedy that it not listed in Boericke’s Material Medica which works but before I prescribe it for you, I would like to have your confirmation that you wish to have another baby at your advanced age.

  3. cailanna says:

    Thank you. Both my grandmothers had late, normal pregnancies. If the pregnancy doesn’t miscarry, I welcome it as I already have a four year old.

  4. cailanna says:

    No disrespect intended, but I have ten days based on the last pregnancy. Not months. My dr wanted to hospitalize me at week six which is in two weeks. Waiting months? This is confusing.

    • Joe says:

      The remedy I have prescribed to a few pregnant girls who suffered from morning sickness is:

      Nat Phos 3x Biochemic Cell Salt 2 tablets taken thrice daily immediately after a meal.
      I prescribed NP 6x at first but found that the 3x was more effective.

      You may start with 6x and if it works for you, you can continue it.

      Do keep me advised of your response.

    Respected Sir,

    How do you do Sir? Hope you are graceful and bubbling as before. Remain so Sir, to relieve the ailing humanity.As per your instructions I have been taking Arnica 30 twice wet dose and Nat Phos 6x twice after two meals. But in the recent times I had to go through a stressful situation that shattered my nerves. My dear ones took me to a psychiatrist who prescribed me an SSRI in low power, Nexito Plus. At this moment I can’t climb stairs or even get down. Walking seems to me a problem. I don’t want to continue the allopathic drug. Please lead me light sir. Save me.

    Thanks and regards

    Respected Sir

    I am elated that you have responded. I am an Indian, male 58, by profession a professor of English literature. Going through your website I came to know that Arnica 30 wet dose along with Natrum Phos 6x daily shower good health on the health aspirants. I follow your advice, go on taking the two remedies, brain children of yours for prolonged period.

    I am a man of jovial nature but maltreatment of authorities and some acute familial problems led me to stress and anxiety. As obvious result I fell victim to blood pressure fluctuating every now and then, high Triglycerides 328, Blood Sugar HBA!C 6 and Uric Acid 6.8. According to my GP it is called Metabolic Syndrome. He prescribed a lot of medicines. But I did not take them I stick to your JOEPATHY. The medicines I take are 1 BP medicine Metoprolol + Clinidipine ( 50mg+10mg) and an antidepressant Nexito Plus ( Escitalopram+ Clonazepam) at bed time.

    I have firm faith on God and try to live an humble life devoid of all addictions . But the only faults of mine are that I can’t quarrel, call anyone names and am highly sensitive to emotional traumas. I am at your doorstep. Please do what you think best as you are like my father.

    Have a good day

    Thanks and regards

      Suggest you consult a Orthopedic surgeon and have him diagnose if you suffer from Osteo or Rheumatoid Arthritis.

      Do you continue to take the drugs below:

      “The medicines I take are 1 BP medicine Metoprolol + Clinidipine ( 50mg+10mg) and an antidepressant Nexito Plus ( Escitalopram+ Clonazepam) at bed time. “

      • rocky11 says:

        Respected Sir

        I consulted with an orthopedic surgeon who told me my problem is Osteoarthritis. He prescribed me some pain killers and Glucosamine Hcl. I tried to take them but they had serious side effects. Hence I discarded all.

        The medicines I take right now are the two 1. for BP and 2. for stress and anxiety. I go on taking Joepathy remedies along with. the aforesaid medicines

        Warm regards

        • Joe says:

          I shall copy below my default therapy for Arthritis which has helped many patients who were on a daily dose of various analgesics which only served to deaden the pain temporarily but not CURE the condition. Some patients have reported that they experienced relief from the pain they suffered for many years in the short space of just 48 hours and it is my hope that you too will experience this same blessed relief from your pain.

          The 2 remedies are:

          Argentum Metallicum 30c
          Arnica 30c

          Both remedies to be taken in the Wet dose twice daily leaving about an hour between remedies.

          You will not take any drugs when you start my therapy.

          The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

          Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
          Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
          Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
          Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
          Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

          Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

          Stop the drugs you are taking for various ailments and take a reading of your BP on a Digital Gauge which you must buy. You will take 3 consecutive readings and indicate them on my website.
          You will NOT take any drugs for anxiety.

    I have gone through the posts as mentioned by you. It seems that Arnica is in the true sense, a Miracle Remedy so to say.

  9. says:

    Hello , respected dr joe sir
    My wife 34 years pregnant with second baby . She had history of gestational diabetes detected in 9month treated with insulin … This time also she got hyperglycemia in 5month .its coming normal with diet n arnica 30 c wet dose … Her obgyn wants her t
    o start low dose aspirin can u please suggest can she continues arnica 30 c wet dose with aspirin or she discontinue it.

    • Joe says:

      You stated:
      “This time also she got hyperglycemia in 5month .its coming normal with diet n arnica 30 c wet dose …”

      You stated that her blood sugar level, which you have not specified, is under control without the drugs she was prescribed during her last pregnancy,

      Why do you still wish to give her drugs like Aspirin when your have already discovered that Arnica 30 (which I would not prescribe for Diabetes, has the same effect of reducing the blood sugar?
      You stated:
      “Her obgyn wants her to start low dose aspirin can u please suggest can she continues arnica 30 c wet dose with aspirin or she discontinue it.”

      Please be more explicit in your statements as I am confused by your last post and I must have more data to help her. You must inform me of when you discovered that her Blood sugar level increased during her present pregnancy with the BS reading and what drugs if any she was prescribed. I must also know the BS reading after you gave her Arnica 30 and if you gave it in the Wet dose.

      I looked back on your case and discovered that you first consulted me 5 years ago on August 10 2014 and since that date I have treated you and other members of your family 12 times.

      • says:

        Hi dr joe sir . sorry replying late to u
        Her BSL comes 130 to140 range with diet as low carbs but sometimes its range of 150 160 one hr after meal …. Her obgyn wants to give low aspirin dose to maintain last
        Trimester fluctuations of blood pressure.
        Her blood pressure is normal ..her first prgegancy she was detected sugar in last month n GTT levels 225 so insulin dose was given dont remember hw much it was … Her blood sugar levels comes normal after arnica dose given usually under 140.

        • Joe says:

          You are advised to ensure that your wife continues to take Arnica 30c twice daily as prescibed while also taking all the medication that her doctors have prescribed.

          • says:

            Thank u sir , we will continue taking arnica 30 …. And obgyn adviesd low aspirin dose ..

          • says:

            Thank u sir , we will continue taking arnica 30 …. And obgyn adviesd low aspirin dose ..

            • Joe says:

              I do not understand why her doctor has prescribed Aspirin and you must be informed that it is not recommended in the interest of the unborn baby when taken daily.
              My standard therapy for Diabetes is Arnica 6c and you are advised to take the lower potenty instead of the 30c I prescribed, twice daily in the Wet Dose.

              Report your response with a blood test for sugar in a week.

  11. Dear Sir,
    I am 26 year old female Indian from Kolkata India.
    I have a lump on my right armpit. On diagnosis by a gynaecologist, she informed it is a swollen lumph node. It pains excessive and seems to have from the first time.

    Also, I have excessive scaly dandruff which is causing heavy hairfall and pimples around my hairline.

    • Joe says:

      Did your doctor prescribe any drug?


      The following remedies will help to arrest the loss of hair and will also help to regrow the hair in about 2 months.

      Arnica Q or Mother Tincture 15ml bottle
      Arnica 30c in the Liquid Dilution in Ethanol
      2 500ml bottles of Spring water sold in supermarkets.
      Any good Fish Liver Oil in capsule form.


      Arnica Q to be used to mix into the water for massaging into scalp.

      Insert 25 drops of Arnica Q into the bottle and you should notice that the water bubbles freely when the bottle is shaken about.

      Half a teaspoonful of this medicated water is to be massaged into the scalp twice daily.
      Please note that this water remedy with Arnica Q is NOT for oral use.(NOT FOR DRINKING). It is only for massaging into the roots of the hair.

      Arnica 30c for Oral use

      Make the Wet dose of Arnica 30 as follows:

      Order Arnica 30c in a 5ml in the Liquid Dilution in Ethanol in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you take a capfull which is a dose twice daily. This is best taken first thing in the morning and last thing before bed.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

      Take a capsule of the Fish Liver Oil daily.

      Use Johnsons Baby Shampoo daily for your shower which will help to wash away the perspiration from the scalp which causes the bacteria that are responsible for your Dandruff to propagate.

      Avoid Coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham and bacon, and all canned cola beverages as they antidote the therapy.

      It is understood that you will STOP all other remedies and drugs you are taking today.
      Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

      Drink plenty of water and exercise daily for at least 45 minutes like walking or jogging depending on your age. The idea is to sweat it out. This is essential to promote the circulation of blood in the body which Arnica will help to promote.

      Patients who suffered from severe hair loss who were losing over 200 hairs daily have confirmed that they discovered in about a week that the loss of their hair had been arrested. They also noticed that the new growth was plainly visible above their scalp when their hair was parted in about 6 weeks.

      Report progress in a month

    Does she need to have this oil directly. What’s the recommended dosage.

    Thank you for your time

      This is a first hand account of a patient who used Coconut oil to help his Parkinsons and although you live in Tamil Nadu and use Coconut Oil as we do here in Sri Lanka, the protocol recorded in this article helped the patient and may help your mom too.

      Please report her response in a month.
