Coconut Oil for Candida: Does Coconut Oil Kill Candida
Thank you for checking out my video. I’m going
to talk about coconut oil today. Coconut oil has become very popular, almost a trend like
Paleo diets and low carb diets. It was popular particularly because of a book written by
a guy called Dr. Bruce Fife from 2005. I think it was called “Coconut Cure: The Prevention
and Treatment of Common Ailments Using Coconut.” Dr. Fife did many people a huge favor by publishing
this book. When you think about 2005, well, it’s 2015, it’s only 10 years ago and coconut
has become really a household name with many, many people.
I can remember recommending coconut back in the �80s and �90s and people thought I
was nuts. Recommending coconut oil. It’s a saturated fat. It’s going to create heart
disease. How stupid recommending this for people. One doctor had a strong disagreement
with me saying, “You’re nuts giving people coconut oil. You’ll get heart disease, heart
attacks from it. It causes cancer and bowel problems.” And I’ve discovered this same doctor
now many years later is recommending coconut oil, funny how things turn right around. Finally,
coconut has been vindicated. Finally now we’re seeing it really now as a health food, where
it should be. Coconut oil really is a saturated fat, but
it’s not an animal, it’s a plant-based saturated fat. It’s medium chain triglycerides. It contains
large amounts of fatty acids like lauric acid and Caprylic acid, and these fatty acids have
very good antifungal properties. There’s lot of research from many different countries
around the world now, from England, from American, from Nigeria, from Singapore, all that validate
this as being a very good product to use for fungus, but it also has shown to have antibacterial
properties. Make sure, when you get coconut oil that you
don’t get one that’s been processed, particularly hydrogenated. A lot of cookies and cheap crappy
products you’ll buy in the supermarket will contain fractioned or very heated up coconut
oil, and that itself is very dangerous because you can get a lot of free radical damage.
The membranes of the cells are made up of fats, and when you consume too many of these
hydrogenated fats or fats that have been superheated, you can damage the cell membranes of your
cells. Having a virgin coconut oil, one that’s been minimally processed and minimally damaged,
you’re going to do your body a lot of good taking this product in. There are far too
many properties about coconut oil for me to talk about on this video, but all I can say
to you is make sure that you get a really good quality cold-pressed or virgin coconut
oil that’s minimally processed. Both Dr. Bruce Fife, as well as Dr. William
Crook, who wrote the “The Yeast Connection” in the 80s, both of these doctors recommended
you start with a small amount of coconut oil when you consume it. So start maybe with a
teaspoon per day and gradually build up until you can take up to three tablespoons per day
and you watch what happens. People with severe Candida may get quite ill if they increase
the dosage too soon. If you’ve got major jock itch or major vaginal thrush, major intestinal
bloating and gas, lots of skin problems, lots of brain fog, please start slowly on a teaspoon
per day for two to three weeks. Gradually build up in that two to three week period
until you can take a tablespoon per day. When you can hit a tablespoon per day in say two
or three weeks, then you can slowly increase until you can hit two tablespoons per day.
Don’t be in a hurry. That’s what I’m trying to say to you. Take your time.
Coconut oil is also wonderful to use around the private areas for a lubricant. I recommend
people massage it around their feet, even in their scalp, around their ears. It’s fantastic
for psoriasis. It’s great for eczema. It’s a great moisturizer for the skin in general.
It’s a supremely good oil to take for many different reasons and it smells divine. It’s
nice in smoothies, too. With some pure vanilla essence and some blueberries, you put a bit
of coconut oil in there. You can use it in coconut flour in cooking. There’s a 101 ways
you can use coconut oil. Just go to Google and check it out.
I hope that gives you a little bit of insight into coconut. The other thing I’d like to
add is I’ve made sure that I have put some of the particular fatty acids of coconut in
my antifungal product called Canxida. It’s actually in there. I made sure it was in there.
This medium chain triglyceride is very important. You should not, in my opinion, take an antifungal
that hasn’t got Caprylic acid in it if you’ve got Candida. Undecenoic acid from castor bean
and Caprylic acid from coconut are two exceptionally good fatty acids that need to be in your antifungal
product. If they’re not, get something else. Mine has it in there.
Thanks for tuning in.
