Important Update about COOC-Certified Olive Oils

Important Update about COOC-Certified Olive Oils
December 19, 2018 Patrick Nemechek, D.O.

Dear Followers of The Nemechek Protocol®,

The Nemechek Protocol requires the consumption of extra virgin olive oil as a key piece of medical therapy, and I believe the COOC-certification is essential in order to maintain the remarkable improvements in health many of you have experienced.

The COOC-certification process is stricter than international standards and it requires olive oils to undergo annual testing after each harvest to assure the consumer the oils are of the highest chemical and sensory quality.

The Nemechek Protocol requires California growers and the COOC designation since the industry is largely unregulated and recent estimates indicate that approximately 75% of the EVOO imported into the U.S. is of inferior or fraudulent quality.

The olive oil we have been recommending (California Olive Ranch extra virgin olive oil) has changed and is no longer COOC-certified (California Olive Oil Council). This non-certified version is now designated as the Destination Blend and will be appearing in your markets shortly.

California Olive Ranch still offers 3 COOC-certified olive oils called the Reserve Collection oils and can be found on their website.  Unfortunately, the loss of COOC-certification for their common oils forces us to change our recommendations.

We have begun discussions with COOC-certified olive oil producers about offering a medical grade olive oil for use with The Nemechek Protocol and we plan to be giving you more details on this in the near future.

In the meantime, we recommend you read labels for the COOC circular seal and purchase COOC-certified olive oils direct from other California olive oil growers or from select retailers.

If you live outside of the U.S., COOC-certified olive oils can still be purchased from the growers and shipped internationally.  One such international service is Shipito.com which is the one we use on our website for fish oil and inulin and which will also feature COOC certified oils starting in January 2019.

Purchasing the more select COOC-certified oils might be more expensive and could potentially strain the budgets of some families since the oil might also be used throughout the day for cooking.  We have an economical solution that might help.

Canola oil is very economical, has a neutral balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and is allowed under The Nemechek Protocol.  Use a high-quality canola oil for most of your cooking and frying needs and only dose your COOC-certified olive oil as one might a medication.  I think this might reduce the overall amount and expense of the olive oil required.

Don’t let this change in olive oils cause you too much anxiety.

Jean and I have full faith in the COOC-certification organization and believe the other COOC-certified extra virgin olive oils are just effective in restoring your health as part of The Nemechek Protocol.

Happy holidays and best of wishes to you and your family in the upcoming year.

Dr. N

My 26 yr old severely autistic daughter just went into group home last year. Dr. won’t prescribe rifaximin, so asked if she would write a script for inulin (group homes have to have script for everything OTC) and she still said no, but has my daughter on Metamucil 3 x a day as she has always had constipation issues since 2 yrs old. Anything I can add to change her mind? She does get Omega’s now, so I will start buying her your recommended brand. Hoping I can get them to give her EVOO with a script. If not, then… Read more »

Dr Nemechek, Hello, my son is 4.5 years old with ASD. He has been on the protocol since June 2018. He has never had any issues with his stool (constipated or diarrhea) even before starting the protocol. All of a sudden these past two weeks he has been having diarrhea sometimes with undigested food and mucous. The week before this started he was a bit constipated with tummy pains. We have not changed his dosing for a few months. He currently takes 1 & 1/8 tsp inulin, 1.25ml fish oil, and 1 tsp EVOO. Recently we have changed his diet… Read more »

Hi Sir,

I’m from Saudi Arabia. Here we have some good quality EVOOs in different brands. But these are listed in COOC.

Kindly advice me whether can I use it or COOC approved is necessary?

Hi Dear Dr. My daughter has the age of 4 Years & 9 Months living in Saudi Arabia from last 3 years. Up to age 3.5Years, she was all perfect in all respects & aspects. After this period, we as a parent feel some behavioral changes. Like, 1- Sometimes, she remains in active mode. e.g. sitting is not so good. 2- It looks like she has some attention deficit problems like she is unable to focus on work for a specific time. 3- Sometimes, she speaks irrelevant. 4- Now she also has some sensory issues. an e.g. problem in nails/hair… Read more »

Hello, Dr. Nemechek. My name is Natalia, 27 years old. I would like to start the protocol for myself. In Russia, there is the drug Alpha Normix (rifaximin), 200 mg, 12 tablets, made in Italy. They advise to take 2 tablets every 8-12 hours. How long do I need to take them?

Hi Dr. Nemechek, My 12 yo son has moderate Tourette’s and mild OCD and has been on your protocol for 6 months. His tics are very minor now as well as his OCD. I really think he developed this from having PANDAS but I know that is not accepted by the majority of doctors. Have you seen many patients with those syndromes that improve on this protocol? We have been using the Nutrigold Triple Strength Omega 3 (2100mg) fish oil capsules because I researched sources with less heavy metals and felt confident in using this type. Do you think that… Read more »

Hi Dr. Nemechek! I am so thankful I found that protocol. I have a very medically complex 2.5 yr old kiddo that was recently diagnosed with moderate ASD. He has VaCTERL Association with Caudal Regression Syndrome and currently uses a gtube (no longer medically needed) due to oral aversion and bad SPD. He spent first 7 months in hospital and have had more surgeries and sedated procedures than I can count, with potential vagus nerve damage. His ASD assessment was scheduled for two months after we started the protocol and had already seen good gains, so I am sure he… Read more »

We are wanting to attempt this protocol with both my children but we are struggling
1. DD (17) was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in August, does this protocol work for Celiac?
2. DS (4)was diagnosed with ASD1 and ADHD also in August, my issue is I cannot get him to take the supplements. He literally eats 6 foods and is brand specific and will not consume anything out side of his preferences. Hiding it in food doesn’t work because he can taste them. Any suggestions? would the inulin and olive oil still help even without the supplements?

Hi,
My 21 month old is diagnosed with a hypomyelinating syndrome (the MRI performed at 13 mo showed delayed myelination with no other structural abnormalities). He is delayed both motor and cognitive wise.

Is the protocol suitable? Thank you!

Hello Doctor,
My 11 yr old son and 14 yr old daughter have ASD. After reading your book. They have started the protocol 2 weeks ago. My son (non verbal) seems to be more aware of his surroundings. He is dairy free. Is it fine for him to take liquid Calcium Magnesium 2:1 Ca/Mg Ratio from Integrative Therapeutics.
Can you please advise and Thank you.

Dr. Nemechek, thank you for this protocol. We just started it and I have a question on cooking oils. My son doesn’t do well with canola oil so I cook mostly with Kerrygold butter (cream and salt) and high quality pure lard (rendered at home or purchased from a butcher that renders it from pasture-raised pigs and doesn’t add anything to it). Is that acceptable? Thank you.

Hi DR.,

My local Pediatrician is suggesting to give piracetam danger on top of this Protocol. He is telling that, this may give more oxygen to brain. But we are not sure. We need your kind recommendation. We were in NP for the past 5 months. My Son is 4.5 years and we are giving all NP approved Inulin(1 TSP), NN UM 1 ml and California Olive Ranch in cooking.

Thanks in advance.

Good afternoon
I would like to ask you if there is any possibility of treatment with the nemechek protocol during the antibiotics therapy of ILADS . I have been taking antibiotics for a year, and therefore there is a need for probiotics. If taking probiotics, treatment with the nemechek protocol will be effective, do I have to wait until the probiotics are discontinued and the ILADS treatment is stopped?

I am asking for information because I care about time.

I am 28 years old and diagnosed with ASD. I just finished your book. For once I finally feel I have a real framework to make sense of my health history. I have been through a number of incidents, particularly in my 20s, relating to gut imbalance, emotional traumas, chemical sensitivity, vaccine reaction, sudden multiple food sensitivities, histamine intolerance, etc. Everything seemed to snowball and build on itself until I found myself isolated and afraid of all supplements/medications because I was reacting to EVERYTHING – and nobody could explain it or help me. I was so amazed to find so… Read more »

Dr Nemechek,

I am starting out on the protocol and I have a question about Vitamin D supplementation. Is it safe/beneficial to continue taking my normal supplementation of 2000iu Vitamin per day, while on the protocol?

Also, do you recommend Inulin or Rifaximin 500mg for a 30 year old such as my self??

Hello again Dr. Nemecheck,

While awaiting your new recommended EVOO brand, can I use the CORTO brand instead? It’s listed in the COOC website and fairly priced, too.

Thank you for your swift response.

I forgot to mention that she also takes a homeopathic flower tincture that works very well to address her daily tantrum. The issue started at the age of 11. She has been on CFGF diet since. I also tried anti fungal, high dose of B6, etc, but the issue persisted. Should the tincture be gradually ceased?

Recently, the whole family (incl. her) started consuming goat milk kefir. Is kefir considered as a Probiotic supplement?

Thank you again and best wishes to you as well Doctor.

Hi, my son is on the modified protocol and has been on it since January 4th this year. I have seen a lot of good changes. He recently got a raised rash yesterday that was raised and it went away in a few hours. Today, he has got two more that has suddenly appeared. I give him Benadryl everyday. You said that sometimes the skin may go through some changes on the protocol. I was wondering if these could be some of the changes you were possibly talking about. He is 6.

Hello Dr. Nemecheck, I am a father of 20 yo low-functioning, non-verbal ASD girl from Indonesia. I had just learned about your protocol and am beyond ecstatic to start her on it. Hopefully, this one will be her last. My daughter has been going through many variety of biomedical interventions (consuming tons of supplements obviously) since she was 7 with only minor gains/improvements except for being quite healthy and rarely get sick. I am glad she has recently been taking NOW DHA-500 (at lower dose though). Current regimens are also: Probiotics (had just stopped), NOW Omega 3-6-9, Liposomal Glutathione, Sulforaphane… Read more »

Hi Dr.Nemecheck hope I find you well. A quick question regarding my recent ONE test results (Purchased before finding out about Prorocol) Got the results recently and the two types of proprionic results are very low infact one wasnt even traceable compared to testing 3 years ago when they were off the scale on DHPPA and sub -normal results in the other . My question is is the protocol still the one for us? My son is 8 years old with Autism diagnosis. Been on GFCF and GAPS for few years. We ate 6 weeks into NP AND Im already… Read more »

Dear Dr Nemechek, Thank you so much for your reply. I’m very excited to learn that you’ve had several people recover from hyperhidrosis using your protocol. However, after extensively researching Vagus Nerve Stimulation I’m unable to find anywhere that does this in Australia where I live (sorry I don’t think I mentioned this earlier). I discovered that you sell your own portable VNS device, although I believe this is only available after an in office consultation with you. Would you please tell me if this is correct? As you can understand, I am concerned that I may be a but… Read more »

Dear Dr Nemechek,

I’ve read with interest your book and find the hypothesis of bacterial overgrowth as a cause of autism – or should I say they symptoms that we associate with autism – compelling. However, I assume that bacterial overgrowth is equally likely in females as in males. If so, how would this explain the higher prevalence of autism in males versus females (4:1 ratio)?

Thanks,

Sandip

Dear Dr Nemechek,
My son 6.5 yrs old, mild CP abd dystonic . His MRI reports says that PONS region in brain is injured at birth. So he is unable to independently walk and speech is limited too. His body tone is high, which interferes in his walking and balance to walk is very poor, can’t stand independently as well.
Will your protocol help in such cases. I am just hopeful after reading so many success stories with your protocol. As we are waiting for his progress. Nothing is working out.
Please do let me know. Thank you. Very grateful.

Hello, my daughter started the protocol 4 days ago with my son. I have seen major differences in him in that short period of time. He is on the modified protocol. She is taking 1/8 tspn inulin, 1/2 tbspn EVOO, and 4ml fish oil. I have not seen a difference with her. She has Ataxia, apraxia, brachial plexus erb’s palsy, selective mutism, autism, and anxiety. I have also noticed an increase in wetting herself during the day. I wanted to know if I should up her dosage or if she needs more than what I am doing. She is 7.

Hello, my daughter is 7. She has apraxia, Ataxia, brachial plexus erb’s palsy, select mutism, anxiety, and autism. We started the protocol 4 days ago. I haven’t seen much of any gains. She is on 1/8 tspn inulin, 1/2 tbspn EVOO, and 4ml fish oil. The only thing that has changed is that she is wetting herself more in the past maybe 2 days. I know it’s still early, but I have seen more in my son since we started. I did not see any effects on her like there is more to the puzzle with her.

Dear Dr Nemechek, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for developing your lifesaving protocol. I’m 27 and I’ve been on it for approximately 6 months. I’ve learnt after seeing dramatic changes in myself that I’m autistic. My Dr agrees with this self diagnosis and I have an assessment booked later this month. I have every single physical Aspergers symptom that exists to my knowledge. Autism also explains the mental and emotional struggles I’ve experienced in my life. Thanks to you I finally know this, and I’m getting better. One quick question thanks. I haven’t yet… Read more »

Dear Dr. Nemecheck,
We are very thankful to you, in fact it is almost a new hope we got for our lives when we read your book, i think my daughter is in awakening for last one week (mostly sleepless, more active, sensitive, anxiety and aggression. Also more likely to have closer to us also better eye contact).
We live in Sri Lanka where it is very difficult to get COOC certified EVOO (but still we manage to get for oral dose). Is it ok to use coconut oil for cooking? (we have facility to get pure coconut oil).

Dear Dr. Nemecheck, My 11 year old son (Auditory Processing Disorder / borderline ASD) has been on your protocol for 3 months (1 tsp olive oil, 15 mL Nordic Naturals Omega-3 and 1/4 and 1/8 tsps inulin daily). We have seen an increase in awareness and vocabulary. Something EXTREMELY concerning to me is, he is anaphylactic to peanuts and treanuts but has never reacted via inhalation (only consumption) the last 5 years. In the last month, he has had coughing fits and one wheezing episode the last 3 times I baked with nut flour (my daughter and I are Celiac).… Read more »

Well, Canadian docs have zero holistic thinking so I’m out of luck there. The only thing I can think of is that the Lactobacillus I was giving him was helping him with allergens (even though not colonizing). If such was the case, do we continue with inulin and hope for the growth of good bacteria? (I will be repeating the stool test with my MAPS test by March to confirm.)

We are 4.5 months in to full protocol and i have been going very slow with Inulin knowing that my daughter shows strong reaction(crying) everytime I increase it. She is at 1/2 tsp of Inulin and when I added another 1/32nd 2 weeks ago, she is crying really intense for long hours. Today she was very restless and would not settle down at all. I am not sure if I should take her to hospital and tell them that Inulin is causing this. I am not sure if this is awakening or not. But it is intense crying and very… Read more »

Dear Dr. nemechech,
We read your your book and my daughter in the protocol for last two months, we are plannning for another pragnancy soon and would like to get some clarifications in below,
01. My wife is taking 3000 DHA (NOW 500-DHA six capsules) and 30ml EVOO and 2 TSP Inulin, is this ok in pre-pregnancy period?
02. Should she continue same dose during pragnancy?
03. Is it OK to take Folic Acid together with these supplements?

Thanks you very much for your valuable time.

Hello Dr,
Wondering if the VNS could possibly help MonoAmine Oxidase Deficiency? Whilst we are on the protocol (2 months in) I’m curious to know as my son loses speech completely and hand tics increase exponentially with consuming high amine foods such as ripe banana or avocado. Thank you for your insight and looking forward to our appointment with you. Can’t wait!
