Coconut Oil


Nope, didn’t work.  I tried many variations on Coconut Oil.  I was taking 1-2 tablespoons each night on top of ice cream – tasty.  I even mixed it with BHT and took it by the spoonful – blechk!  Coconut Oil and its reactive component Lauricidin are supposed to be similar to BHT in that they strip off the lipid envelope of fatty encased virii like herpes.  Some people claim a herpes cure taking 3-5 tablespoons of Coconut Oil daily.  Suffice it to say, Coconut Oil and Lauricidin did not work for me.

Additionally, I have “O Positive” blood.  According to “Eating Right 4 Your Type” I am supposed to avoid one thing and one thing only – Coconut Oil!!!  So, it may work for you, but it certainly did not work for me.

Finally, Coconut Oil is very high in saturated fat.  If you are taking 3-5 tablespoons a day, you are going to gain weight and probably have some pretty high blood pressure and blocked arteries.  Proceed with caution, but if you do proceed – please let us know how it goes.

  1. When i was first infected with genital herpes my doctor gave me an antiviral. It had no noticable effect. The infection was spreading slowly for two months. Then i started drinking coconut oil 4 times a day (probably about 2 tablespoons) and also rubbing it on my skin. It took about a week for the infection to stop spreading. In another week the blisters were starting to scab over. Two more weeks and the eruptions were entirely healed with only a few small scars remaining.

    Since that time went ever I feel the tingling that heralds a new out break I resume the treatment. The symptoms stop within a few hours with no visible signs ever reaching the surface.

  2. I started taking Lauricidin 3 weeks into my initial infection, I have not had it return since (about 8 months). Don’t know if it’s my immune system working or the Lauricidin?

  3. Not to be rude/mean-spirited…but rather, educative here–as regards the remarks regarding Coconut Oil’s undesirable results concerning it’s high saturated fat content.

    Coconut oil is definitely one of the very highest sources of saturated fat found in food substances–plant or animal derived. However, the rather common–and mistaken–notion that saturated fat, in general, causes weight gain, high blood pressure, and blocked arteries, is simply not based in lipid science studies of any veracity.

    Actually, consumption of coconut oil of it’s own leads to weight loss, generally speaking (consideration of other foods being consumed might easily compromise this, namely high carbohydrate foods, and especially refined carbohydrates). Additionally, there is scarcely any studies–even badlly conducted ones that attribute hypertension (high blood pressure) to coconut oil or saturated fat directly; but this does not mean that many commonly consumed foods which might contain saturated fats–hydrogenated or not–such as cakes, candies, snacks, etc. which also contain high-content refined carbohydrates are not prone to contributing to conditions which include hypertension (high BP).

    And as for coconut oil contributing to blocked arteries, there are no valid studies that support such misguided understanding; cholesterol involvement in the role of cardio-function being a currently confused area of medical science, to say the least.

    Coconut oil is, considered by many of it’s advocates as an entirely heart-healthy food, but this commentary is not to readily support such claims…there might be some truth there, for some…everyone’s different, it is always best to bare in mind.

    And while Lauricidin might help lessen the viral replication of herpes, there doesn’t seem to be any research that confirms the clearance of this virus from the human system, once invaded…there is always hope for the future…but for now, no known cures.

    Sorry, the Coconut Oil and Lauricidin I was taking was to help eliminate herpes by helping strip off the lipid coating. I was did not learn about my Candida infestation until much later.

    Thank you for your contribution,
