Fungal infections: Frequent fungal infections, like ringworm and jock itch, are connected to imbalance of fungus and bacteria in our organism. The antifungal properties of the lauric and caprylic acid made the coconut oil a perfect ingredient for cleansing the entire system of fungal growth.
Viruses: When it enters the body, the lauric acid converts into monolaurin, which has powerful antiviral properties that can destroy lipid-coated viruses like influenza and herpes.

Coconut oil cleanse
Virgin coconut oil is consisted of medium-chain fatty acids, sent directly to the liver to be transformed into energy, not stored. This fat is ideal for cleansing because it provides the body the needed energy in the time of fasting.
These same fatty acids are very important for cleansing the body from harmful toxins, which will result in faster healing.
How to cleanse with coconut oil
Replace regular food with virgin coconut oil, for 3-7 days. Start the day with 2 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil, and take up to 14 tablespoon during the whole day.
If you can`t stand the taste, mix the oil in warm lemon water or plain organic yogurt. Also, use stevia to sweeten the lemon water, not sugar. If needed, you are allowed to eat up to 4 ounces of coconut meat a day, during the detox.
The best type of oil is raw, organic, extra virgin coconut oil, which is completely unrefined, cold pressed, unbleached and not deodorized, so that you can get the maximum natural benefits from it.
If it`s your first time using coconut oil, let the body adjust to it by incorporating the oil into your diet before the detox. Begin with half a teaspoon, 3 times a day and increase the amount gradually, to get to 2 tablespoons 3 times a day. This means you are ready for the coconut oil detox.
In the beginning, you may experience symptoms like headaches, dizziness, stiffed joints or foggy thinking, which are all a sign that the body is getting rid of the harmful toxins. These symptoms can last for 3-5 day and can be eased by gradual introduction of virgin coconut oil before the detox.
During the detox period, drink lots of fluids to facilitate the process of cleansing. This drink will replenish you during the cleansing:
- 1 tsp. of sea salt
- 1 cup of lemon juice
- 6 cups of filtered water
The sea salt will replace the lost minerals and the lemon juice has powerful cleansing properties.
For better taste, add coconut sugar, not any other kind of sugar.
