Better But With Side Effects
Hi everyone. I've been ingesting and using 100% pure organic coconut oil since October 2007. I have excema and keratosis pilaris. I've found that my keratosis has gotten better, practicaly non existent, but my excema has worsened. I find that it is drying on my skin and I would need to keep moisturizing constantly throughout the day which is no good. Not sure if that is just because of the cleansing properties of the coconut oil and the toxins are just making their way out of my system or not .. but my excema has definitely not improved. in fact, i've developed a whole new kind of rash. kind of a blistery raised looking rash. I had to switch back to using Aveeno on my skin and just ingesting the coconut oil. Has this happened to anyone else?? Should I be drinking more water? I only take a teaspoon of the oil a day and drink aloe vera juice as well, twice a day. should I just continue to' take the oil and put it on my skin?
FYI... All skin conditions stem from the GUT. You could be allergic to something you are eating. Finding out "WHAT" and eliminating it is helpful. Then "HEALING" the stomach lining is important. BEETS and OKRA are healing to the lining.
I have used coconut oil on my skin for years. I have eczema and C.O. helps moisturize and prevents infection because of it's antibacterial/antifungal properties.
My best cure for eczema is to avoid allergy foods and take Evening Primrose Oil, 3000-6000mg a day. Plus, I expose the rash to 15-30 minutes of direct sunlight each day. The sunlight must be in the morning between 7:30-10:30 am. The healing rays are strongest at that time and the harmful UV rays are minimal. (tanning booths work too.) This may sound like an odd treatment, but the sunlight prescription was the best advise a natural doctor ever gave to me. The sunlight will heal my eczema in two days with the E.P.O.!
The sunlight will also help with yeast/fungus/tinitus rashes too, because yeast is a fungus that grows in the dark and hates sunlight. If the rash diminishes but still persists you are probably dealing with yeast. Start using Lotramin AF daily. If it starts to go away, you ARE dealing with yeast/fungus for sure. You must use the Lotramin AF consistantly without a break until the stubborn fungus is gone - it might take two weeks. (Be careful not to cross contaminate your other oils/creams after you touch a yeast infection. Wash your hands thouroughly.)
Apple Cider Vinegar
I have had keratosis pilaris for many years. I tried apple cider vinegar as suggested and I am amazed at the results. Its only been 4 days and the Keratosis is 80% gone. I also noticed that Im not having spastic colon episodes and for the first time in years I am not needed a sleeping pill to get to sleep. I do have a question if you can kindly answer..Is putting vinegar on food (i.e. popcorn) as helpful as drinking it??
Oil pulling cured keratosis pilaris, coated tongue, ear wax greatly diminished, softer skin, sounder sleep, white teeth, pinker gums and tongue, reduced menopause symptoms. I have been oil pulling for 4 1/2 months. I pull for 20 minutes with organic coconut oil. Keratosis Pilaris has no known medical cure. I will oil pull for the rest of my life.
