I am 34 and coconut oil is the only thing that has worked for cold sores. I use coconut oil on my lips daily. When I feel a cold sore coming on, I use more coconut oil and the sore does not even grow. I also use coconut oil for my skin as a moisturizer as well and it works wonders. I highly recommend the use of coconut oil.

Treatment for herpes

If anyone there is suffering from herpes virus, please try applying coconut oil on the affected area. Even if you don't have an outbreak you can still rub coconut oil on the affected areas twice daily to stop an outbreak. Coconut oils are easily available in any Indian shops. You can also make it at home. Take some milk from coconut and boil it under high temperature. Keep boiling until all the milk evaporaes. Squeeze the white substance that is left and you will get pure coconut oil. Please try, this oil treatment it really works. You don't have to spend so much money on antibiotics and it is harmless to your body. Goodluck and best wishes

I will try. I've had problems since 1995. Three this last 2 months. Put Virgin Coconut Oil on problem area and ingest it 1 tbl 3 times/day?

I have suffered from fever blisters (herpes simplex) on my lips for many years. I read that VCO reduces viral loads in the body so I gave it a try. Have had spectacular results (better than lysine) and no more outbreaks for 9 months. Regarding some of the negative feedback, I was shocked to read of the problems people have had with VCO - I guess because my experience has been so positive. My suggestion is to add some butter along with the VCO. Not sure why this works but it also works to stop repeat when taking fish oil.

I wrote earlier about my experience with eight years of un-diagnosed herpes. Since then, I've been experimenting with it, and I've got complete control over it--I can make myself completely symptom-free, or cause an outbreak within 30 minutes.

THE CURES: Coconut. Yep, another vote for that one. I recently discovered Thai food, and they put coconut milk in just about everything. Taking special care to eat Tom Kha Gai (Food of the gods!) or Thai curry dishes several times a week, I've discovered that I have no need for my previous supplement: Gigartina Red Marine Algae, 1000mg (4 capsules) per day. And it's a lot more fun! To be fair, though, the Red Marine Algae works just as well.

If I want to cause an outbreak within an hour, all I have to do is not eat any coconut products for a few days, and then have a Diet Red Bull. Chock full of both Aspartame and arginine, if your doctor needs you to have an outbreak for testing purposes, this will do the trick. Drinking two of these per day sent me to the emergency room with horrible sores, and was how I discovered I had herpes. Other energy drinks (containing arginine) kept me having sores for the next few months until I realized the connection.

I was diagnosed with genital herpes in 1999. It was a shock to my system, in more ways than one. The nasty bleeding scabs, the weeping sores, the pain - and the horrible sensation on the thighs, like cats clawing at wet skin. (That's just my description.) I heard about coconut oil a year ago and decided to try it. I was guided to take it this way: A tablespoonful in a glass of clear warm water, mix it up, melt it, and drink it. I took it three times a day at regular intervals. I came off my medication, Ayclovir, and waited for the usual attack. (This was after a few months of taking the oil.) But nothing happened. In order to stimulate an attack, to force it, I ate my old 'enemies' - peanuts and bananas, in great quantities, both guaranteed to cause a herpes outbreak. But nothing happened. I have been clear of the genital herpes now for at least six months, perhaps more, and the only thing I want now is to have a blood test to be absolutely sure the infection has gone. Of course doctors will say that the virus is incurable, but something has happened here, something profound and unusual. I have an inner certainty that the virus has been battered about by the oil, to such an extent it has no power left. Of course, I may be wrong. But there is no sign of it.

Peter wrote last year that he had been ingesting cocoanut oil and belived he may have been rid of herpes. His commentary stated he would be taking a blood test to find out if the remedy worked. I would like to know if Peter has written back, and if not, would he please do so, to advise on any test result. Thanks.

EC: He hasn't written back yet, unfortunately. Hopefully he will check out the site again sometime soon!

My wife got a break out on her upper lip and then the toddler caught it too. Next, I developed a small dot on my upper lip a few days after. We all applied coconut oil although the wife was skeptical. My small dot stopped feeling sensitive that day and faded over the next few days with other hint of break out. The area on my wife's lip and the toddler's lip stopped and faded also. My wife isn't so skeptical now.

I am very active and love to play volleyball outdoors under the sun. I play once a week for 3-4 hours with full sun. The problem is the aftermath. It never fails. The day after I played outdoors, I would feel a tingling sensation around my mouth where the cold sore is about to come out. In the past, I would put all kinds of medications for cold sore and it would still come out painfully.

I found out that putting Virgin Coconut oil directly on my face/skin, after showering and/or after playing outdoors, the cold sore never came back. I am cold sore free for 6 months and going.

I have been taking pure coconut oil for about a month at the rate of 3 to 3.5 tbl spoons a day. After about 2 to 3 weeks later I developed a loose and urgent need to release myself by ensuring that I made it to the toilet. The stool was not watery but it needed to be expelled. I then stopped for about 2 weeks of taking the oil. I then started again at a rate of about half a teaspoon a day. So far no urgent need to visit the loo. What is the cause of this?

Further what is the recommended daily dosage for an hiv patient who is not on any scientific drugs.

Your response and advice is urgently required and appreciated.

Thank you kindly. TPG

While the word cure is a very final type of word, I would like to say that Coconut oil has been a welcome remedy in my life for the HIV virus. More and more information is becoming available about how the monolaurin and lauric acid in organic virgin coconut oil does its work to literally kill lipid-coated viruses such as HIV. I have been taking VCO off and on and have seen my viral load of 1100 (when 1st diagnosed) digress to 570 6 months later. I will be having another test shortly. My doctor said it was unusual for the virus to digress without medication, letting it not progress is one thing, to have it go backwards is another. Coconut oil remedies so many other ailments too, my skin feels amazing and its the only thing I use on my skin. You shouldn't put on your skin something you wouldn't ingest. Your skin is your biggest organ. I am a loyal user of this product and grateful to hear it endorsed by people like Gary Null.

After reading your post, I would like to share I have a friend that was diagnosed with HIV, we have been researching avenues for possible cures. Is it really true you have shown major improvements with with your blood count since practicing a regime with extra virgin coconut oil? How often and how much should someone start this regime of coconut oil? Do you have any literature to share that you used for your research before beginning that I can pass along to my friend?

In the Philippines, studies have shown that coconut oil can cure HIV. Test subjects were given at least 12 tablespoon of coconut oil a day, and and after 6 months, HIV have been cured. I had no time to confirm this report but the story had been featured several times in radio and tv programs.

I started taking coconut oil when I saw Doctor that wrote, "The Cure," on Rachael Ray Show. It is supposed to help with hormones. I have to admit, I'm not using as much progesterone cream since I've been using the virgin Coconut Oil. I put about a tablespoon in my morning oatmeal.

I started supplementing my diet with coconut oil (3 tbsp 3x day) one week ago to help with weight loss ... and I've had a wonderful and unexpected side effect. I've been dealing with perio-menopause and hot flashes for the past six months. Interestingly, within 24 hours of beginning my coconut oil dosing, the hot flashes that I had been suffering from have all but stopped! I have gone from having about 20 hot flashes a day to maybe one or two, at most. Most days now I don't have any! Also, I am not always good about taking all my doses and one day I even missed all of them and the hot flashes did not immediately return.

I would like to benefit from Apple Cider Vinegar and Virgin Coconut Oil. How would I include them in a daily regime?


Posted by Brian37 (Auburn, Wa) on 02/22/2013

Try adding the Tablespoon of VCO in your hot cofee or tea. It is wonderful. It totally melts and is easy on the stomach. I do it daily. So good taste. And provides great energy.

I just spread a tablespoon of coconut oil on my toast each morning!!

Also I have recommended coconut oil on the paws of family pets, they will lick it off..

It is very high in antioxidants! Helps with hot spots and flaky skin!!!

I put Virgin Coconut Oil on apples and on angel food cake and its so good!

Hi, I just started a fews things that I got off this website, which by the way I am obessed with. I want to know how can I take the coconut oil? Its seems a bit to much to take by itself, just wanted a few ideas on how I can take it internally. I would like something that I can do everyday without to much hassle.

Thank you, Lita

Hi Lita, There are plenty of ways to get coconut oil into you internally. You can cook with it and I have mixed cacao and honey w/ it for a treat. The easiest way of all I have found, to get it into my body, is in my morning coffee. It tastes good with a subtle coconut taste. Very easy, hassle free! Hope this helps, Lisa

I like to put coconut oil in my oatmeal. You can just swallow it from a spoon as well but it gets my gag reflex going.... I fry my eggs in it and love using for oriental cooking and curry. Curried butternut squash soup is fabulous with coconut oil in it.

Unless you have loose bowel, it would not be too much at once, and very helpful if you have constipation... without giving you diarrhea. Sara

@Lita: Yesterday, after getting home from work, I decided to try 1 tablespoon of molasses and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a cup of hot water. After it all melted, I sipped it. It was pretty good! I guess the only way to tell, is by trying it! :-)

Does it make a difference in which molasses you use? I have regular molasses and not the blackstrap. Is there a difference?

Replied by Plumhappy

yes lita, there is a difference. Blackstrap has more nutrients in it but does have a strong flavor that some fine hard to swallow. Regular molasses is usually just used for baked goods. Also, try going to tropical traditions site for a ton of recipes for coconut oil use in food. No, I don't work for them, but they do have a great product and regularly have great specials on thier coconut products that are organic. Thier recipes run from main dish to dessert, vegan, gluten free and meat dishes.

Hi Lisa from Thousand Oaks, CA. Question for you. I am new to EarthClinic and so VERY glad I found this website. I've been taking ACV in my morning water and have found a few other uses for it with positive results. I started OP just this morning and surprisingly, it went well! (I have a strong gag reflex so I thought I couldn't do it but mind over matter.... I did it. Can't wait to reap the benfits of this with time. ) Onto my question, I bought organic CO and use it topically on my face and as an all over moisterizer. My husband uses it on his scalp for his eczema - works VERY well! But to ingest CO... It's in a solid form when you buy it. If I were to just take a tablespoon of it, would I melt it first? I understand if you cook with it, it would melt. Same for putting it in your coffee????? I put a tsp. Of pure cocoa in my coffee for health benefits and I can only imagine CO in my coffee with the cocoa would be pure heaven. I want to start taking more CO for weight loss, too, but not exactly sure how to take it orally. Again, do I melt it first? Sorry if this seems silly. Everyone posts that they take CO daily but don't really say if they warm it up first or swallow it in its solid form. Thank you!!

I take a tbsp of coconut daily, but I cannot chew & swallow the solid form. I keep a glass drizzle bottle on an electric candle warmer. I turn it on in the mornings when I get up & the oil melts in about 30 minutes. I take my dose & then switch off the warmer until next time. I do use the solid for pulling, but I just let it melt before swishing. I just cannot do it for swallowing, I gag every time : )

You can purchase coconut oil in capsule form. It is very good for colitis and dementia.

I take a tsp every morning in solid form and chug it down with a carbonated beverage. That's the only way that I can swollow it.

If you can't manange swallowing the oil, you can use organic coconut milk and make it into a milk shake/smoothie with yoghurt or kefir and fruit etc. you're still getting the oil but less concentrated. In his book on Coconut Oil, Dr Fife says that 1 tablespoon of oil equals 80 millilitres of coconut milk which naturally must be all well mixed to a smooth paste so you get the fat. He says you need 3.5 tablespoons a day, but when my kinesiologist tested me, my body was happy with just 1 a day. You can also cook with it, roast or fry, make cakes and biscuits/cookies etc, even spread it on toast. And it really works
