Because I have take it for the past of 2months didn't recover also. If no, please which way can I follow to cure this sicknesss thanks so much a lot.

    • Hi Umar,

      Bad habits and unhealthy diet can impact the health of your liver and lungs. When you hurt your liver and lungs, bad breath occurs.

      Here are some quick tips you can do to improve your health, thereby getting rid of your bad breath:

      1. Quit smoking and drinking. You should know they're bad for your health. Bad breath is an indicator of sub health. What's more, a mouth reeking of smoke and alcohol will make you more repulsive.

      2. Drink more water. We tend to forget to drink adequate amount of water to hydrate our body. Poor hydration can retard the elimination of toxic substances in our body. Toxins stink. And this reflects in our breath.

      3. Increase your fruit and vegetable intake. These plant foods provide tons of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients your body needs for optimal health. While increasing their consumption, you should cut back on unhealthy food like meat, fried food and high-sugar stuff.

      Unhealthy food can take down your health. Especially meat, it rots easily and quickly in your gut that in turn, causes smelly gas when you burp.

      4. Sleep early. Go to bed by 11 PM. And try to target at least 7 hours of sleep. Staying up late into the night will take a tough toll on your liver.

      5. Take coconut oil at least 3 tablespoons per day. This can help improve your liver health and enhance your bowel movement. Frequent bowel movement helps to get rid of toxic waste in your body. Less toxins, less bad breath.

      6. Practise good oral hygiene. Brush and floss your teeth every day to get rid of any food debris that are stuck between teeth to feed bacteria. Bacteria eat, they poop too. And their poops are smelly too.

      In a nutshell, poor health leads to bad breath.

      Last but not least, don't call me 'doctor'. I'm just a regular guy like you.

  2. Hi I read any oil has the ability to line the gut wall preventing some meds or nutrients from being absorbed properly into the bloodstream? Is this true? If your answer is yes, then can I consider a coconut oil enema instead of taking it orally?

    • Hi Naa, our gut begins from the mouth all the way to the anus. Throughout the journey our body produces digestive substances to break the fats in the oil into their individual components such as fatty acids and glycerols, and unleash some of their fat-soluble nutrients (if any) that our intestinal cells can easily absorb into the bloodstream.

      That said, what you heard from is not exactly true under normal circumstances. Most fats in the oil would have been digested and crumbled into smaller units for easy absorption by our body.

      Unless you really ingest tons of difficult-to-digest long-chain fats that fail to digest properly and in such a case, yes, it will kind of line the gut and inhibit the uptake of nutrients and medications into your bloodstream.

      Coconut oil tends to digest faster since about 60% of its contents are medium-chain fats. These fats can stimulate bowel movement. Which is why many "constipators" have reported its potent ability to help relieve their constipation after taking coconut oil orally.

      However, you can try a coconut oil enema if you want to. I don't know how effective this will be as I've never tried that before.

      If it does help you a lot, I hope you can drop by again to share your experience so others can have another good way to help them ease their constipation issue with coconut oil. Good luck! 😉

  3. Hello Soon Chai
    I am a 55 yr. old women, married 34 yrs. and 2 kids which are grown now. I feel my husband who's 59 and I are in fairly good shape. I did suffer with asthma for a few of my adults yrs. and gain control of my life without asthma by quit smoking and changed my diet. We both are not on any prescription meds at ALL. I have not had a menstrual cycle for the past 5 yrs. or more. We are general healthy eater but have let work get in the way and started eating out about 3 times a week. I have worked for over 30 yrs. on one job and my husband and I decided that I can stop working for a while and get back to our lives. He is still working. So I am getting back to the old way of doing things by eating right. I LOVE to cook and I am messing around with the Keto low carb recipes, getting on the treadmill and starting back on the coconut oil again. I did it yrs ago and know it's benefits.

    My question is..... I started taking a 1 tsp. coconut oil with dinner for the past 2 days and on the 3rd day my menstrual cycle started again. I am like what the heck is going on? Could this be from getting back on the coconut oil again? I measure out 1tsp. and 1tbsp. as I start out with small amount 1st. of the coconut oil and put it in ice trays and freeze it. Pop it out of tray and put into a labeled zip lock bag. Its ready to pop in my mouth and keep on going.

    Thank You in Advance for Your Rely!

    Sincerely Tangela

    • Hi Tangela, so you only started back on coconut oil for 2 days and you're experiencing menstrual cycle.

      Well, coconut oil may help to regulate hormones. But you've just started it back for couple of days. I think low-carb may be the reason because it's not a "normal" diet one should have.

      We're not designed to function on low-carb. So, it could cause your body to go a bit haywire. You might like to check with your doctor or a gynecologist about your condition, just to make sure your health is good.

    • Hi Sirisha, as long as it's coconut oil, it should help you achieve weight loss.

      However, it does not effect weight loss when you only take a teaspoon of coconut oil or two a day and you're expecting to see some significant changes. At least 3 tablespoons of coconut oil per day, I would say.

      Cut back on meat and other high-calorie food, and compensate the reduction of these foods with coconut oil. That's how you lose weight with coconut oil.

      • So i should take atlst 3 tblspon of coconut oil daily and its okay if it is not VCO also na.It doesnt lead to weight gain na if it is not VCO.And is it okay if i take it with lemon water morning and evg.
