We live in a world where we are constantly exposed to toxins without even knowing it. The toxic exposure is everywhere around us, from the environment to the food we eat, and there’s no way we can avoid it no matter how hard we try. But even though we can’t prevent toxic exposure, we can try and detox our body form all those harmful parasites, bacteria and viruses the natural way and coconut oil detox is the best way to cleanse our body naturally in a short period of time.
Why is coconut oil the most powerful natural ingredient for full body detox? It contains medium chain triglycerides which boost your immune system and high levels of lauric and caprylic acid which have antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal properties. All of these nutrients eliminate the bad bacteria but don’t have an effect on the good bacteria, which eventually creates a balanced digestive system flora. According to studies, coconut oil is extremely effective at eliminating yeast and fungus infections from our system.

How to detox your organism with Coconut oil?
When planning a coconut oil detox you must first understand that it will only work if you use organic, raw, extra virgin coconut oil. The un-organic types don’t offer all the same benefits that organic coconut oil has.
During the detox your body will need plenty of water in order to flush out the parasites, so you should drink as much as you can.
If this is you first time consuming coconut oil you shouldn’t start with the detox right away. First start by adding it to your diet gradually, half a teaspoon, three times a day, then start increasing it to 1-2 teaspoons, 3 times a day and so on. It’ll take you about 2 weeks until you reach the amount you’ll need to consume for the detox. Once you feel like you can take this much without problems you can start the detox program.
During the coconut oil detox you’ll need to mix some coconut oil in a glass of warm water and consume it for 3-7 days. You need to consume 10-14 tablespoons of coconut oil daily. Two tablespoons can be taken at 2-hour intervals throughout the day.
If the taste of coconut is too strong for you mix it with plain, organic yogurt for easier consumption. You can add some fresh coconut meat, not more than 4 ounces. It contains fibers which are beneficial for the gut flora.
Before starting any detox method, you need to consult with your doctor and make sure you’re safe to undergo this regime, no matter how natural and healthy it is.
