  1. Thanks so much for the confirmation of what I suspected. I learned the hard way (or more accurately, the soft, runny way). ... Twice in a month. The first time I soiled no less than five (5) pair of shorts in three hours, with absolutely no control. Had to clean the floor, too.

  2. Kindly reply I am daily taking Cocunut oil for past 5 days... One tablespoon Daily on empty stomach.... But am getting dizziness, nauseous, severe headache, diarrhea and anxious feeling too.. Is this al bcos of this?? Kindly reply

    • Hi Amyy, it could be the Candida die-off causing those symptoms you described. Another thing that may add to your discomfort is your body is not yet accustomed to your consumption of coconut oil on an empty stomach. So, take coconut oil orally with food.

      If you feel the symptoms are causing you too much problems, then stop coconut oil for a few days first and see if you feel better. Once you're ready to resume your coconut oil intake, remember to start off with ยฝ tablespoon per day first and mix it well with your meal. This will allay the bad side effects from eating coconut oil.

          • Hi
            My son started coconut oil (1/8-1/4th tsp with food). After 5 days he became severely nauseous, dizzy, anxious, belching, lots of bloat. We stopped talking the coconut oil but heโ€™s still having Die off symptoms and itโ€™s been over 3 weeks. Is there anything we can give him to eleviate these symptoms. Will they eventually go away? Heโ€™s 15.5 yrs old. Diagnosed with me/cfs.
            Thank you lori

  3. hmm
    well have had a few vegan friend to stay and I noticed a smell which was not particularly pleasant and assumed the smell came from some product on hair

    am attempting to become vegan and tried using coconut oil instead of margarine last night and this afternoon
    this evening, even after a shower, I can smell the same smell coming from my own skin and now wonder if it is coming from the coconut oil taken internally (yes it was virgin ) - it is not nice - shall look for the RBD - fingers crossed

    • Hi Em, it could be that your body was unable to fully metabolize virgin coconut oil and so your skin emitted the unpleasant smell, which is the mixture of coconut odor and toxins expelled from your body. Switching to RBD coconut oil is a good choice. Appreciate for taking the time to share your experience. Thank you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Hi - yes thought of that
        The smell seems to have gone although am kind of worried that I have just got used to it like perhaps my friends did
        I wash pretty regular - perhaps my friends felt that coconut oil was all they needed for a wash - I know some theories are that washing too much is bad for the environment
        Anyway have been using coconut oil to cook - it takes so little - but now am using it along with olive, grapeseed and walnut oils instead of margarine - although I have to top it all off with salt and pepper adding various salad leaf options, to cover the dark leafy greens, and seem to be happy to finally accept being a vegan - time will tell but coconut oil really does rock
        But have bought the RBD just in case ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I have started taking Organic Coconut Oil for about a week and found that the stomach infection is almost gone. I am able t take only 15 grams in two equally divided doses. More than this and I feel heavy and very less hunger. Recently I found an article [url removed to maintain site quality] saying that coconut oil causes fatty liver.
    I just wanted to know the truth as I am confused. Pl help!
