I’m not sure about the validity of that site but I can tell you about my own personal experience – I have a eustachian tube disorder which is actually made better with inflammation (my eustachian tubes are more open than they should be and since the tubes are so small in diameter, they are sensitive to even a small amount of inflammation). Anyway, since I’ve been on this diet, including 8-12 teaspoons of coconut oil per day, my ear symptoms have gotten much worse, which suggests that there is not much in the way of inflammation in my body. Having said this, I’m comparing this with how I felt on my regular diet which was highly inflammatory – lots of sugar and white flour etc.
I’d say just feel it out – what’s the reason you’re concerned about inflammation? If it’s something that manifests as some kind of measurable symptom, keep a log and see how it behaves as you take away/introduce coconut oil…
