I was suffering from ulcers for 2 years and couldnt find relief. I was prescribed carafate which covers the ulcer in an attempt to promote healing. With little success I tried herbal remedies and a healthy diet, eating natural foods, such as fruits, vegtables, and lean meats. I discovered extra virgin coconut oil and began taking 3 Tbls orally, within days I began to feel much better! Though ive read books that claim that coconut oil can cure ulcers alone I think it was a combination of the medication and good diet along with the coconut oil that cured my ulcer. If you are or ever do suffer the pain of an ulcer I strongly recomend the use of coconut oil, its a life saver!
I've always been a fan of natural remedies since childhood. I discovered coconut oil years ago while looking for a vinegar and oil recipe. We've always used RBD (refined, bleached, deoderized) and now use the Luanna brand found in Wal-Mart. A couple years ago I had increasing stomach pain over a several week period. It started out like hunger pains and got progressively worse. It got to the point that it wouldn't go away even after eating. I figured it must be an ulcer.
I had read that coconut oil killed the ulcer causing bacteria. I got on the internet and researched the dosage and began taking a tablespoon in the morning and another at night.
After three days or so the pain was gone and I stopped taking it. A few weeks later the pain came back. I figured if you take antibiotics for 7-10 days I should probably do the same with the coconut oil. Again the pain left in three days or so but I kept taking it for a week. That's been probably three years or so. I also try and eat fried eggs once every weekend just for good health.
PS: an arterial ultrasound on my carotid arteries, taken last year after about 8 years consuming the stuff, showed no evidence of plaque buildup.
I've smoked up to 2 packs a day until quitting 2 years ago and have never taken cholesterol meds. I'm 45 and my dad was 90% blocked by age 61.nI also take 4+ Grams of cheap ascorbic acid vitamin C almost daily.
