Re: coconut oil for increasing temp
I take my temp in the morning before I get up. I have been doing that for about two years now. I also take my temp throughout the day and chart it. It gets very wacky in the middle of the day, but I think that the first morning temp is the most significant since it's not influenced by food or activity or anything. Since taking the coconut oil, my temperature readings have gone up. This morning, my core temp reading was 98.6. I was thrilled!
I buy the cocunut oil in the health food store, I think it says "extra virgin, natural, organic coconut oil." I think if you buy it in a reputable store, you will get a good quality. It is a bit deceiving because it looks like lard, it's not in liquid form. It looks like it would clog your arteries, but it breaks down at 76 degrees, so it doesn't stay that way. I put it in my hot rice cereal in the morning, cook with it, and even just eat it off the spoon.
