[YEA]  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

[YEA]  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?

[YEA]  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.

[YEA]  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.

[YEA]   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?

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

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.

Thank you that does help but I put the molasses in my coffee. Do you think by puting both it would be to much? Thanks Lita

Hi Lita, That should not be a problem using both in your coffee. I know I have used them both in my coffee and had no problems with the combination. Try it and see what you think. Enjoy, Lisa

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
Eugene, Oregon
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

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.

Posted by Diamond (Cleveland, England) on 05/19/2011

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.

Hi Diamond, No, you don't swallow the oil it because you will also swallow the bacteria that has been released by swishing with the oil.

Hi, for oil pulling: Swish for about 15 minutes then spit it out in the toilet. I usually then swish with a little water then brush my teeth with toothpaste. Some will tell you not to use toothpaste but I just have to. Hope that helps.
