Coconut Oil for HIV
There is no known cure for HIV, which can lead to AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), but there is hope with coconut oil. The research with coconut oil for HIV goes back to the 80s when researchers discovered that the lauric acid in coconut oil was effective in killing the HIV virus. Medium chain fatty acids are very effective in killing microorganisms.
The usual antiviral drugs used in the treatment of HIV and AIDS can leave the body susceptible to undesirable side effects, including nausea, vomiting, fatigue, muscle wasting, and a host of other issues. In addition, the body can become resistant to the prescribed antiviral drugs, which offer no assistance to a weakened immune system. The conventional way to treat the side effects of a drug is to prescribe more drugs to treat those effects, but this may be of no benefit to the individual.
Coconut Oil Kills Viruses
Antiviral drugs for HIV only attack the genetic material of the virus, whereas coconut oil for HIV obliterates the virus. The microorganism that makes up HIV has a fatty membrane that is very vulnerable to medium chain fatty acids. The virus absorbs these fatty acids, which weakens its genetic material and essentially breaks it apart destroying the virus. If you experience side effects from antiviral drugs for HIV or AIDS, it is worthwhile to buy a jar of organic coconut oil and use it as a long-term treatment.
Overall Improvements in Health
The research on individuals with HIV who consumed coconut oil is inspiring. Individuals experienced a reduction in the number of viruses in their bloodstream, after just several weeks of consuming coconuts and coconut milk.
The study, which included 14 HIV-infected subjects aged from 22 to 38, included each of the subjects taking a dose of monolaurin or pure coconut oil (the lauric acid in coconut oil is transported into monolaurin in the body). No antiviral drugs were prescribed. Four subjects were prescribed 22g of monolaurin, five subjects 7.2g of monolaurin, and the final five subjects 3 1/2 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil—equivalent to 22g of monolaurin. The results were astonishing. After three months, seven of the subjects experienced a reduction in their viral load, and over the full six-month period of the study, nine of the subjects has a lower viral count.
The overall results of this study prove that consuming coconut oil for HIV helps to fight the virus. It is not clear why pharmaceutical companies are not completing further research on coconut oil, as it is widely available and has proven beneficial against viruses, and even fungal issues like Candida. The total cost of drug treatment for AIDS per annum can reach approximately $15,000 per patient. Therefore, pharmaceuticals have an interest in prescribing their patented medications to treat HIV and AIDS.
Try consuming coconut oil for HIV and AIDS and you may experience fewer side effects from the common prescribed medications.
