        Again, this advice has shown to be unhealthy for your brain. While you add back the butter, also keep your carb intake low—and that means all carbs, even healthy whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. The idea is to eat low-glycemic foods, and to make sure that, all combined, you aren’t eating foods that cause a lot of sugar to circulate in.   Oil of the Christ. This is the holy oil that is called “Christos” in Greek. This is the story of the Christ within, within all of us. The oil is secreted by the cerebrum from the holy claustrum or “santa” claustrum.

        When the MCTs in virgin coconut oil are converted into ketones they act as a super fuel for the brain. This super fuel provides energy to the brain as well as stimulates healing and repair. It is the chemical structure of the MCTs in coconut oil that allows them to pass the blood-brain barrier which ordinary food or oils cannot. Specialized brain cells called microglia act as the brain’s primary defense system. Normally, microglia exist in a resting state. When activated by bacteria, virus, or toxins they spring into action, quickly proliferating, enlarging, mobilizing, and going on the attack, engulfing these foreign substances and removing damaged cells.

        Some essential oil manufacturers have oils that can be taken internally, but research on the safety and efficacy of this method is extremely limited. Aromatherapy is thought to work by stimulating smell receptors in the nose, which then send messages through the nervous system to the limbic system — the part of the brain that controls emotions. Oil on the Brain is a smart, surprisingly funny account of the oil industry--the people, economies, and pipelines that bring us petroleum, brilliantly illuminating a world we encounter every day. Americans buy ten thousand gallons of gasoline a second, without giving it much of a thought.
