Bad Experience with this Oil

Hi. Well, I read your whole story and thought I would like to try this. So I bought the organic coconut oil and took 2 tablespoons at night and then 2 tablespoons in the morning.

Well, within an hour I was so sick. I could barely walk or sit up and was very dizzy and sick to my stomach… I don’t know why?? Has anyone else ever heard of this reaction? Please let me know ASAP… I stopped taking it…

Hi Toni,

I believe what you are experiencing is a “healing crisis.” I, too, experienced it at the beginning of my coconut oil journey.

Foods that have remarkable healing properties such as coconut oil, including certain herbs and supplements, can cause your body to accelerate the processes of cleansing and healing. The detoxification and regeneration process can become so intense that a number of unpleasant symptoms, such as the one you’re experiencing, appear. Some of the common symptoms are nausea, fatigue, diarrhea, vomiting, acne, fever, depression, etc.

The poorer your health, the more severe symptoms that would manifest. A healing crisis is not an illness so don’t be afraid of it. Some actually look forward to it because they know it’s a sign that treatment is working.

Start with just one teaspoon a day (1 tablespoon equals 3 teaspoons approximately). If no adverse reaction, make it two teaspoons a day and then three, until you’re doing 3 to 3.5 tablespoons daily spread throughout the day (morning, afternoon, evening).

Do let me know how you are progressing…

Hope this helps,
