You know what? After just a few days I really do think I'm feeling better. I've made no significant changes other than adding the coconut oil daily and my knees bend better without complaining. I've been sleeping better. I feel more alert. Realistically the sleeping better would make me feel more alert and the brighter, longer days will help with sleeping and feeling more alert. However, I think the coconut oil is a contributing factor and I'm going to keep it up.
Thanks, Jan, for starting this thread and everyone else who has contributed.
I thought the reference to oil pulling was a typo or autocorrect or something but I googled it. Interesting. Something else to consider trying.
