I heard that coconut oil works well against candida infection which is what i think i have. However, every time I eat coconut oil I get severe abdominal pain, to the point where I can barely move. My body also feels hot and I have a BM shortly after. Usually after the BM my body feels normal. Is this candida die off or does my body just not tolerate it well enough? If it is die off, I'll continue using it since a couple days of gut wrenching pain is worth being cured of candida.
If indeed it were die-off you would be too drastic, if it is allergy you should plain avoid it... but either way remember that there are very few pain sensors in the intestines so when you FINALLY feel pain in there it is a pain you should take seriously - using marshmallow root tea to reduce the inflammation and avoiding whatever you believe might be the cause.
If your gallbladder is compromised, you could also have pain trying to digest a rather large influx of fats as those found in CO. When you do have a BM, is the color yellow or clay-like....or does it have the "normal" color of brown (brown would indicate enough bile while a clay or yellow color could indicate less bile)
i have a hard time with coconut oil also but one of the responses helped with me.they took my gallbladder out this summer because it was not functioning and when i take coconut oil my liver side always cramps like when i had my gallbladder also i get headaches
Hi , I have used something way better than coconut oil and it does not cause stomach pains or abdominal pain, it is irish moss powder, let me tell you about candida it is a bacteria that spreads in the body when the body is in a low oxygen state and is not alkalined. when your body is well nourished and in balance no disease can live in the body. irish moss comes from the sea and has 92 minerals in it, the body is made up of 102 minerals in it, so you can tell that 92 is a high number of minerals . irish moss relieves the body of menstrual cramps, bad breath, lung disorder, colds, anemia and digestive issues. when you have candida , it is likely that you wil lhave anemia or diabetes. anemia means that there are low levels of iron in the blood. Irish moss has high levels of iron in it, therefore it can restrore the right levels of iron in the body. iron produces high levels of oxygen to the body., when there are high levels of oxygen in the blood, no disease can live, none not lupus not cancer not thyroid disease and not candida . Try irish moss I know that no one will r egret it, it is from nature and is the best!!!!

No, candida is YEAST, a fungus, which is why the anti candida diet involves removing everything in your diet containing yeast of anything fermented. This is also why an MD (unless they are very stupid) will not try and kill candida with antibiotics, but will use Nystatin (an anti-fungal)instead of doxycycline or flagyl (which are antibiotics).
Wild yeast naturally lives inside of us. It is one of many things that lives with our bodies. A healthy person cannot have candida overgrowth because the body holds it in check. Unfortunately it is nearly impossible to be a healthy person in our current physical situation...and the extreme availability of high Sugar diets makes this worse.
SUGAR feeds candida, which is why candid overgrowth is so common in the industrialised world. As commercial food manufacturing became the normal way for people to get food, the quality of the food dropped and as it did not taste very good without any real nutrition, the manufacturers added in lots of Sugar balanced with some salt) to try and fool our tongues into thinking it was good food.
Nutrition level in food also dropped because the new methods of farming tend to kill off the microbes that plants need in order to be healthy, as well as stripping off the minerals from the soil. Modern farming places no importance on healthy soil.
On the other hand, for most of human history (a few million years) our only sweet foods were fruits (although with a proper natural diet and a working sense of taste, you can taste the sweetness in veggies as well).
However the creation of the trade triangle of "slavery, sugarcane and rum", put refined sugar on the market as easily obtainable. Instead of the rare treat of honey being a part of our diets, people bought sugar by the 50 pound bag as a staple food. Most of the sugar from the slavery/cane/sugar trade triangle went into making rum, but that left a lot of refined sugar for average people as well.
After all, sugar made it easier to get bread to rise quickly. It made it less costly to make sweet treats. However, refined sugar was still rather uncommon in large quantities in an average diet until large scale manufacturing of food became big business (not until the 20th century). You can't make nutritious food in a factory as easily as you can make "bad for you" food.
In this era the average western person eats between 120 and 130 pounds of sugar every year....which feeds the yeast that naturally lives inside of us. And none of us western city folk are healthy enough too keep candida at bay anymore - because we are all being poisoned all the time.
If you couple high sugar diets, with poisoned unhealthy people and with food that has no nutrition - and you try and grow plants in soil that is extremely mineral depleated & is lacking in healthy life forms...with hundreds of thousands of unregulated dangerous man made substances in EVERYTHING we use (even our clothing and our medicines) It causes trouble.
Coconut oil is good but sometimes its heat can trigger inflammation. I suggest that you use virgin coconut oil in cold processing. This will cure candida speedily. What's more, you don't get that icky greasy feeling.
