ABOUT THE AUTHOR
About Vermén M. Verallo-Rowell, MD
Author of Rx: Coconuts! (The Perfect Health Nut)
Dr. Verallo-Rowell’s writing successes began in the 1960s, as a dermatology resident at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. One of Dr. Verallo-Rowell’s very first articles was on the analysis of hair in hair loss. It won first prize in the 1967 U.S. national manuscript contest of the Cutis Dermatology Journal Through the years the subjects of her research have been diverse: cosmetics, skin care, psoriasis, photomedicine, dermatopathology, dermatologic surgery, and medical ethics.

Her first book, Skin in the Tropics, Sunscreens and Hyperpigmentations, is now considered a "classic" on this subject. Published by Anvil Press, in 2002, it won the Annual Publishing Industries’ Golden (Gintong Alay) Award for “comprehensiveness in coverage of topic”.
We asked the author, why a book about coconuts?
The author explains: "...because I now have the most comprehensive series of dermatological clinical studies on the coconut. The results of these studies were endlessly impressive, whether these were the coconut’s effect on skin health, the actual patient applications of the skin research results, or the regular usage by my family and friends. Since these results were surprisingly different from what is known about coconuts, I had to write a book about them!”
Since coconuts are generally considered part of alternative medicine, what got you started on doing these studies?
“I grew up in a country where the coconut is an integral part of folklore and everyday life. When I left the tropics, I trained to become a clinical and research-oriented dermatologist and dermatopathologist. The focus of my studies was the skin, using chemicals from everywhere but not from the coconut.
