The coconut oil therapeutic dosage necessary when you are sick can be twice the amount of the maintenance dosage, even more, much more.
In many cases, 3-4 tablespoons everyday is usually enough even when you’re not feeling well.
There's no danger of overdosing on coconut oil because it is a food, not a drug, so it's safe. It’s so safe that the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) includes coconut oil on its exclusive Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) list of foods.
My own maintenance dosage is swallowing at least 4 tablespoons daily. My wife uses only coconut oil in her cooking so that’s probably another tablespoon or so, not to mention other coconut products (meat and milk) I consume on a regular basis.
During sickness, which is "rare" by the way since coconut oil became the focal point of my health regimen, my therapeutic dosage would go as high as 8 tablespoons per day.
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) or Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) plentiful in coconut oil boost your immune system. MCTs or MCFAs provide your cells a quick source of fuel, accelerating healing and repair.
My personal high, so to speak, is during the coconut oil detox wherein I take in at least 12 tablespoons of coconut oil and nothing else for three consecutive days. In case you're wondering, the answer is "none." I experience no adverse side effects whatsoever.
Spread your coconut oil consumption throughout the day. Don’t take the therapeutic dosage all at once as too much of any oil will give you loose stools, especially if you’re not used to it.
MCFA-loaded coconut oil is the most potent antimicrobial dietary fat on earth. Oftentimes, it's all you'll probably need to get out of sickness.
