Patient

Q: I recently started taking a tsp to half a tsp. of organic coconut oil as a supplement. I think I am experiencing some "die off" detox symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness, constipation, vaginal infection (im being treated for), etc.Should I continue taking the coconut oil or stop all together??

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

It is interesting that you are taking organic coconut oil in the quantity of one yo half a tsp.
This has shown results.
you would be happy to know that in many countries and states coconut oil is used for cooking also.
You may please continue it in the same dose as before.
