    We don't eat oatmeal every day. 1 Tablespoon of salad dressing is about all I put on a helping of salad. The info I read was if you don't have the 4 Tablesp per day you don't have an effective amt. How can you swallow that much oil? I tried using it instead of butter on toast. It didn't work very well.

    Google didn't turn up ways to use it, only advise to take it.

    Dr. Oz has had a few segments on using it. I would check out his information and Dr's that recommend using it every day.

    But I suppose it couldn't hurt. I hate to see people getting false hopes though.
    When my Grandma was alive we would have tried it. Sometimes false hope is better than no hope at all.

    It actually looks like Crisco, smells HEAVENLY - and I also buy mine at WalMart - $10 or under. When your oatmeal is done cooking, I add coconut oil and a little honey. It is becoming quite the thing - 'will have to google for other recipes.

    Our Walmart doesn't sell too much of it. I got the last container. It took 3 clerks to find it. It was on the back of the shelf with a case of Crisco oil in front of it. LOL. I have used it fry potatoes, okra and eggs in. Pretty expensive just for regular cooking, but am really looking for ways to get it into the diet in sufficient amts.

    You can buy coconut oil in health food stores ,organic, or pill form. I use (1/4 tsp.)of the oil in my scrambled eggs. Since he needs more I think you would be better off using pill form I like to use Puritans's Pride.

    4 Tablespoons is the dosage that Dr. Mary Newport found to be effective for her husband. Where did you get the dosage that you are taking?
