Detoxification of the body is an extremely important procedure that plays a vital part in maintaining a healthy optimally-functioning body. Today we will show you a detox treatment with coconut oil that you can do at home, that will help your body flush out all harmful toxins in just a short time, and that has no bad side-effects at all!
What makes this detox treatment so powerful is the coconut oil which consists of medium chain triglycerides that strengthen the body and the immune system. The oil is also high in caprylic and lauric acids that possess antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral properties.
These substances and their helpful properties attack all the harmful bacteria but do nothing to the helpful bacteria. Coconut oil kills yeast and fungal overgrowth in the body which is why it is so popular amongst anti-fungal research and studies.
So many people have had a problem with Candida that it is almost considered to be an epidemic. The coconut oil detox treatment doesn’t contain any sugar and carbohydrates which starves off the candida in the system, eventually causing it to disappear.
People who have suffered from candida will notice the incredible results right away after a coconut oil detox, and along with the candida, their sugar cravings, fatigue, acne, eczema and sinus infections will disappear.
Close relatives to candida are the fungal infections. And yes, just like the issues above that the compounds in the coconut oil can fix, they can battle fungal infections too. Thanks to the lauric and caprylic acid, a few coconut oil detoxes will be more than enough to cleanse the whole body of fungal growth. Many people recover even after the first detox treatment.
Coconut oil works wonders for digestive condition. From irritable bowel syndrome to leaky gut syndrome, it fixes every major and minor problem with the digestive system and it restores balance and health to your overall body. And with the lauric acid that has strong antiviral properties when converted into monolaurin in the body, chances are you won’t be prone to viruses any time soon after a coconut oil detox.
Why To Cleanse Your Body With Coconut Oil
As we mentioned above, the virgin coconut oil consists of medium-chain fatty acids that get sent directly to the liver for more energy and less storage. This type of fat is perfect for cleansing since it provides all the energy needed at times when less food is being consumed.
The same medium-chain fatty acids play a vital role in flushing all of the harmful toxins out of the body and speeding up the healing process in just a short time.
How to Cleanse Your Body With Coconut Oil
The detoxification process is extremely simple. It replaces regular food with coconut oil everywhere from 3 to around 7 days. Start off your day with 1-2 tablespoons and eventually reaching up to 14 tablespoons a day.
If you can handle the taste of the virgin coconut oil that is okay, but for those of you who cannot stand the taste, you can always mix it with lukewarm lemon water or just plain organic yogurt. However be sure to exclude any kind of sugar.
The preferred virgin coconut oil to use is organic, raw extra virgin. The oil must be unrefined, expeller-or cold-pressed, not deodorized and unbleached.
If this is your first time consuming virgin coconut oil, then take some time for you and your body to adjust by slowly adding it to your diet, before the big cleanse process. You can start off with ½ teaspoon three times a day and work your way up to 1-2 spoons, three times a day. It may take up to two weeks, but the cleanse process will be worth it.
Also, some people experience the “die-off” symptoms witch are joint stiffness, headaches, foggy thinking, flu-like symptoms but if you do experience these, don’t be afraid. This is a sign that the body is getting rid of harmful toxins like the fungal organisms. These symptoms only last around 5 days but as we mentioned above, these symptoms can be eased off by gradually adding virgin coconut oil to your diet before the big detox.
Be sure to drink lots of water during the coconut oil detox. We have prepared a special drink that will replenish you during this big cleanse:
– 1 tsp. of sea salt
– 6 cups of filtered water
– 1 cup pure lemon juice
The sea salt will replenish any minerals that might have been lost during the cleansing process and the lemon juice has also very effective cleansing properties. For a sweeter taste you can add natural coconut sugar, but avoid using artificial sweeteners.
