Coconut Oil Detox: The Most Powerful Method to a Healthy Digestive System

The coconut oil detox is an incredibly potent cleansing program, ideal for fixing all types of digestive problems. A very effective method to re-stabilize your digestive system.

Sugarless Energy Source

Compared to water, juice fasting contains a tiny amount of calories that gives you enough energy to function throughout the day. The problem with the juice fast is that “it contains a lot of sugar.”

Most people in a juice fast would be lucky to find minor relief from Candidiasis, for instance, because the sugar keeps on sustaining the candida fungus.

Coconut oil provides you a better source of calories in the form of Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA). MCFAs boost your energy level so you could function normally. They accelerate cellular activity, thus promote healing. MCFA-rich coconut oil does all these, plus lots more, without feeding unfriendly microbes, which is a major drawback of sugar.

How Much Oil to Consume?

During a coconut oil detox, you need to consume 10-14 tablespoons of coconut oil daily. You can back off a bit if you simply can’t handle this much oil.

Too much of any oil, if you’re not accustomed to it, will give you loose stools. So scatter the intake throughout the day.

It might also be a good idea to avoid taking the oil within 3 or 4 hours of going to bed as too much energy can prevent you from falling asleep.

Can’t Take Oil Directly?

Many people, including me, can swallow oil with no problem. But some have difficulty consuming any oil by the spoonful.

How about mixing the oil into your cup of sugarless lemonade? Or maybe blend it with some plain, organic, unflavored, unsweetened yogurt? These are easy ways to “indirectly” consume coconut oil.

How Long will It Take?

The coconut oil detox is the most potent way to cleanse your digestive system.

The coconut oil detox program can be done for 3 or 7 days, even more. Most people can do a 3-day purge. Check with your doctor first before doing it for 7 days to be sure.

For more than 7 days at a time, please seek the guidance of someone experienced in fasting to assist you along the way.

You may need or want to do several 3-day cleanses. Longer ones are harder but the purging is faster.

Complements to Coconut Oil

Drink as much water and sugarless lemonade as you can. Lemons and limes are natural detoxifiers and help repair the liver.

You are also allowed to eat no more than 4 ounces of fresh, non-dried, unsweetened coconut meat which is rich in fiber and nourishes the good bacteria in your gut.

Preparation is Critical

As in all types of fasting, you need to prepare yourself for the coconut oil cleanse. Take between 2 and 4 weeks to boost your nutritional reserves. Don’t do this program with a weak body!

Make sure you take lots of water. Eat some sea salt should you experience intestinal discomfort, lower back pain, etc. Unrefined sea salt provides a wide spectrum of trace minerals that aid in healing.

Healing Crisis

The detoxification your body will undergo can result to a healing crisis. Do not worry about the uncomfortable symptoms that could happen. It’s a sign of improving health and you’ll feel much better when the coconut oil detox is over.
