Coconut oil for chicken pox? The primary defense against most common viral infections like chicken pox is your immune system, and quite frankly, nothing boosts your immune system like coconut oil can.
Chicken pox is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), which is closely related to the herpes simplex virus (HSV) inactivated by medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) generously present in virgin coconut oil (VCO).
MCFAs are unique and rare fat molecules capable of killing a long list of viruses, not to mention a multitude of bacteria, fungi, parasites, etc.
MCFA-rich coconut oil strengthens your immune system, enabling it to victoriously fight off a host of viral infections.
As long as your immune system has the support it needs to do the task, of which coconut oil does an outstanding job, you can keep chicken pox and many other common viral infections at bay.
