EVCO comes in pill form also, I doubled the dose, he was getting 10 pills a day. Plus 1 Tbsp. Of EVCO in every cup of tea I could get into him beginning it was 2-4 cups a day! It didn't work, product was from a natural, organic store, one of their best products(as they told me) was not worth the $$ I spent. Sorry still not a believer! I am a registered nurse so I know the importance of hydration, he did not have the tiredness at this stage of his mono, so he was always awake and always in pain with swollen tonsils.
I am writing after being very disappointed in coconut oil for relief of mono swelling and sore throat! After reading all the "miracles" I ran out to get the virgin coconut pills and the oil itself. My son has been battling mono for the last 3 weeks. Every week the swelling of lymph nodes and tonsils worsened. I started the pills twice a day(5) second week along with tea with Tablespoon of the coconut oil and continued into 3rd week when he just kept getting worse and ended up in hospital as the swelling worsened and he couldn't swallow anything, not even his own spit! I am not a believer in the coconut oil! Sorry didn't work for this Canadian!
