Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Naturopath Fife (The Coconut Oil Miracle; Oil Pulling Therapy) claims that arthritis is caused by infections and that by eliminating them one can bring about a complete cure or significant improvement. He targets dental issues as the primary way in which microorganisms enter the bloodstream and lodge in joints, triggering the inflammation process that becomes arthritis. Fife decries root canal procedures as breeding grounds for bacteria that can never be eradicated unless the tooth is removed. He advocates daily "oil pulling"—swishing vegetable oil in one's mouth for 15–20 minutes—as a way to improve dental health and recommends taking four tablespoons of coconut oil every day to protect against infection. Fife's cure includes maintaining good oral health, fighting systemic infection, improving one's diet, managing weight, and calming inflammation. VERDICT While Fife does provide some validated information, many of his assertions are not based on proven scientific evidence and may be harmful. Richard H. Blau's Too Young To Feel Old: The Arthritis Doctor's 28-Day Formula for Pain-Free Living is a far better choice.—Janet M. Schneider, James A. Haley Veterans' Hosp., Tampa

    "A Diagnosis of Arthritis is not a life sentence."

    Treatment for Arthritis and Fibromyalgia currently consists of managing the symptoms, as the causes have yet to be fully understood. In this enlightening guide the author, Dr. Bruce Fife projects his theory, that both conditions are related to an underlying infection. His research has led him through a maze of possible viruses, fungi and bacteria, and he expresses his belief that the culprit lies within infected teeth and gums. Did you know that a tooth and socket comprise a joint? From the teeth, bacteria easily enter the blood stream, causing secondary infections in the joints.
    One's mind might leap to the conclusion, if it's an infection then give me antibiotics. Just like life, it's not that simple. If the secondary joint infection is caused by virus or fungi; antibiotics are useless.
    Well- researched facts are presented to us in the beginning of the book, leading up to
    Dr. Fife's 'Arthritis Battle Plan.' He warns us that some drugs i.e. non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory drugs may reduce inflammation but may have the high price of accelerated bone destruction.
    Dr. Fife spends some time explaining the potential benefits of bee venom but fascinates the reader by presenting the extraordinary healing power of coconut oil. It seems the oil is comparable to natures own, mother's milk. Both have properties, when broken down by the body, become antimicrobial. Unlike synthetic antibiotics, this more natural agent is not harmful to our body's 'good bacteria.' In effect, coconut oil reduces systemic infection, thereby reducing infection in the joints.
    The importance of proper diet is not ignored, and he stresses his opinion of the impact on health by refined sugar and grains. The Magic of Motion chapter addresses the need for weight bearing, yet low, impact exercise. Teaching us that although rest is important, inactivity will, in effect, 'rust' our joints. Lightening the amount of weight we put upon our joints is essential.

    The book is completed with a summary of his Seven Steps to Beating Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. This is a drug free lifestyle, which he claims will not only eliminate pain but rebuild joint function, restoring mobility. Be adventurous and attempt his Seven-Day Whole Foods Challenge. The book leaves little doubt to its validity including index, numerous references, diagrams and endorsement from several satisfied followers. Dr. Fife has shared his knowledge in many other books promoting healthier choices, if nothing else a sense of hope.

    Finishing my own further investigation, I intend to put coconut oil on my grocery list, adding it to my own attempt at relief, by living a healthier lifestyle. Watch out pharmaceutical companies, perhaps nature has provided the real cure.
