Creating Waves of Awareness
It is a very singular circumstance, pointed out by Dr. Radcliffe, that neuralgic patients have, with rare exceptions, a dislike to fatty foods of all kinds, and systematically neglect its use. And it has several times occured to me to see patients entirely lose neuralgic pains which had troubled them for a considerable time, after the adoption of a simple alteration in their diet, by which the proportion of fatty ingredients in it was considerably increased.
~ Dr. F.E. Anstie
Francis Edmund Anstie (11 December 1833 – 12 September 1874) was an English doctor, medical author and journalist. He was the first editor of medical journal The Practitioner, established in 1868. He is notable for proposing Anstie's limit, an amount of alcohol that could be consumed daily with no ill effects. ~ Wikipedia
Is Dr Anstie telling us to add fats, like olive oil and coconut oil to the diet? This can be a fascinating line of discussion, considering America has been on a low fat binge diet for a decade and we still see so much disease.
