I got my coconut oil today from www.coconutoil-online.com It's unrefined, virgin organic and centrifuged oil. I had a teaspoon earlier on and immediately got a sharp twinge in my stomach. Then kind of felt funny in my head with mildly racing thoughts(which didn't feel like die-off). Now, about an hour later I have a mild headache and just feel continually nauseous (not severly so and not like I'm going to throw up or anything).
I used another brand of coconut oil previously and never felt like this, though that was organic, not virgin. However the previous one did give me energy, haven't noticed anything like that with the new one yet.
Could the headache and nausea be die-off as presumably it's a much stronger, purer oil?
It is much more pure. How long has it been since you were used to consuming the other oil? Your body might have grown out of being used to taking the coconut oil too. You might try eating it with some food and see if that doesn't clear the problem up, most of the time it will. Just one tablespoon doesn't seem enough to cause any die-off, I could be incorrect but I do not think that is what you are experiencing. Headaches are often caused by need for water which could have been added to by the CO, drink 2-3 glasses of water and see if that doesn't clear the headache up next time. Hope this helps, Caitlin Lorraine
I stopped using the other oil about 2 weeks before starting the new one.
I haven't had any more of the new one as I'm away from home at the moment but I will try it with food next time as the first time I just licked it off the spoon as soon as it arrived!
Yes I probably was a bit dehydrated at the time which wouldn't have helped.
