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

Coconut oil is amazing for skin and hair. I would like to say that Jamaicans have long been reaping the benefits of ingesting Virgin Coconut Oil by using it in our cooking... Use it to saute your veggies... Fish... Etc. I cant imagine taking it by the spoonful like medicine...
Dear Group, I find that there is quite a bit of interest in using coconut oil for medicinal purposes. It is true that it is very good for various digestive and other problems and its fatty properties allow for healing very quickly.
However based on its usage in India, I would recommend that you ingest coconut oil by using it for cooking purposes rather than taking it directly by tbsp. I am not sure if that is good for the body. By using it for cooking purposes like frying, I think it is safer and will not give adverse reactions like nausea etc. As for skin and haircare, it is definitely very good, provides lustre and thickness to hair and is good for skin generally and especially in healing scratches and other minor problems.
I tried this Pina Colada smoothie: 3 cups of water/ice, 2 cups of fresh pineapple, 1/2 cup almonds, 1/2 cup pitted dates, 2 tbs of coconut oil and 1/2 vanilla bean. Mix it all up in a high speed blender. It is fantastic!
hi debbie, thanks for getting back to me, ill start oil pulling tommorrow morning on a empty stomach, starting with a teaspoon first, till I get used to it. I'll post a comment in a week. Im due back at my dentist approx 7 weeks time, which I hope gives the oil time to start healing my gums. thank you.
hi, thankyou debbie, for your last feedback, could you please advise,
after I melt the coconut oil in a bowl, then put it in my mouth, do I just swish it round, then spit it out or do I swallow it. Im so sorry for being a nuisance just being careful. thank you.
I managed to get from my local health shop today, Unrefined pure coconut oil, I do hope this is the correct one. The texture of it is like lard. Do I just take a teaspoon full chew then to swallow it, or is it just a pinch first to see if I have any adverse reactions to it. I bought it because I have gingivitis I am also taking CoEnzyme Q-10 30mg 3 times a day. Any feedback would be gratefull thanks.

Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) in the form of capsules is grossly inadequate to obtain the expected health benefits. VCO is not medicne and does not behave like medicine in the body. VCO is used directly by the cells, just as they use proteins and carbohydrates for the work of the cells. The medium chain fatty acids in VCO are used by the cells for essential services, which make the cells work efferctively and efficiently. Hence, the cells require VCO as regularly as the other food nutrients.
VCO should therefore be considered as a component of food that promotes good health and has the potential to heal many diseases and ailments. VCO works best as it gets ingested with proteins, carbohydrates and other micro-nutients in food.
When VCO is taken as medicine, while processed unsaturated vegetable oils are consumed as food, it is highly unlikely to gain the expected health benefits. Processed unsaturated vegetable oils contain high levels of poly unsaturated fatty acids. These poly unsaturated fatty acids slowly cause many different kinds of diseases and ailments, which may affect the genes and the yet to be born.
When one adopts VCO in order to heal or prevent a disease or an ailment, then it is important that any food containing processed unsaturated vegetable oils be avoided. Further, the quantities of the VCO, as food, should be substantial I. E. Initially about the same volume or weight as the protein, and the carbohydrate level should be reduced considerably. When there is good relieve from the ailment, the quantities of VCO may be reduced to maintenance level and carbohydrate increased.
VCO gives excellent results as part of the normal diet. Raw VCO has no side effects, hence good results are achieved if it is used liberaly and directly as food or as body/hair lotion.
As a matter of interest, apple cider vinegar and fermented foods contain the basic short chain fatty acid, ascetic acid, which is used by the cells in the same manner as the cell uses the fatty acids in VCO to prevent and heal diseases.
Okay, I have a couple of questions about vco. First, when taking it internally, exactly how much? I am completely unfamiliar with this stuff... Sencondly, I am reading that it can be used in place of moisturizers and conditioners for hair/skin. Again, how much? I have dry/oily skin in places and have color-treated hair (quite oily though) I don't want to make my problems worse by over-moisturizing. But, I'm seeing that the benefits far outweigh the negs, so I am going to try this. Any feedback would be appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!!!!
