Is Coconut Oil Good for You…or Not?

I’d like to introduce you to Dr. Tania Dempsey:

“Dr. Tania Dempsey is an expert in chronic disease, autoimmune disorders, and mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS). Dr. Dempsey is sought after internationally for her knowledge of chronic immune dysregulation, and has attracted patients from Israel, England, Thailand, and France. Dr. Dempsey uses integrative medicine to get to the patient’s root cause(s) of their illness.  Her purpose is to understand why people get sick and to help patients understand their body and why it fails them when it does.

Dr. Dempsey received her MD from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and her BS degree from Cornell University. She completed her Residency at NYU Medical Center/ Bellevue Hospital and then served as an attending physician at a large multi-specialty medical practice in White Plains, NY, before opening Armonk Integrative Medicine. Dr. Dempsey specializes in autoimmune disease, MCAS, and chronic illness.  She is an active staff member of Greenwich Hospital in Greenwich, Connecticut. She is also a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) and the American College of Physicians, and holds a certificate in Vanguard Endocrinology. Dr. Dempsey is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and a Diplomate of the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine.” (Dr. Tania Dempsey)

Her blog is very informative and helpful and exemplifies what an integrative medical approach should look like.  Dr. Dempsey wrote a rebuttal to the recent study published stating that coconut oil is perhaps bad for your health.  It is worth reading.  Also, it elucidates the fact that food politics are alive and well even in the medical community.
