For over 5 years I have had swallowing difficulties. Initially it was solids then it was with semi-liquids and cold liquids. I would experienced chest pain and frequently had to regurgitate to relieve the pain. Then a wonderful thing happened. My wife came across this book by Dr. Mary T. Newport entitled “Alzheimer's Disease – What if There Was a Cure?” In her book she wrote how a simple dietary intervention of coconut oil (for its essential medium-chain fatty acids) has help improved her husbands' alzheimer condition – (you have to read her book to understand more on the biochemistry of this miracle oil to our body).
My wife decided that I should give this oil a try as in her course of work, MCT oil (found in coconut oil) were also given to premature babies to supplement their feeding or babies with GERD.
I started taking 2 tablespoon of organic extra virgin coconut oil (unrefined & cold pressed) on 2 June 2012. It is now slightly over 2 weeks since I've started and I am happy to say that I now can eat and swallow comfortably without any choking episodes, no regurgitation of food because I can feel the food moving down the esophagus and into the stomach. It is indeed by chance that my wife found the connection of this simple diet change by Dr. Mary Newport to improve my achalasia condition. I urge you all to read all you can about the miracle of coconut oil and have it into your diet as soon as possible to get the amazing improvement that I have had since taking EVCO. Good luck to all..
