Coconut Oil a Cure?

Posted by Caroline on 04/16/2007

Hi. I'd be really interested in knowing more from the lady who took VCO [Virgin Coconut Oil] for bladder problems. I've had such problems for a year and am under a urologist. I started using VCO today and but would like to know how much the other lady took, what brand it was, and if its still working for her. Im happy for you to give her my email address if she wants to contact me direct. If you have heard from others who this has worked for I would also be interested to know. Thanks so much Caroline

The best remedy for UTI that I tested was sea salt 1 teaspoon in 1 full glass of water taken just only once. This is also taken throughout the day with cranberry juice.

As to the coconut oil in general (they don't have to be virgin coconut oil) the lauric acid is often taken at 1 teaspoon 2 times a day or possibly 3 times a day. However, they are generally more helpful in reducing the bacterial buildup than UTI in general. The reason being that coconut oil is an oil, and it does not get easily passed to the kidneys, but they are more likely rid of through the intestines. Salt and cranberry on the other hand goes directly to the bladder and kill them. If you remember salted fish don't spoil, the actions of sea salt kill the organisms by hyper osmolarity.
