We all need a detox once in a while to get rid of the unneeded waste material in our body which cannot be fully excreted by urination or defecation. Therefore, there are many cleanse or detox techniques nowadays which will give your body that extra needed boost.
Some of the detox programs are based on excluding certain food groups, such as excluding meat and dairy, being based only on fruits and vegetables; and the more rigorous ones which are: juicing or a water fast.
You always have to listen to your body and make a balanced, step by step approach to a detox, because you certainly do not want to make a shock to your body. By making a detox, you will help your internal organs do their work and after the detox they will flush out toxins more efficiently.
We suggest you to do a coconut oil cleanse, which will help your body get rid of the harmful parasites, viruses and fungal infections. Coconut oil is an oil which is both for external and internal use, and is extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm.
Because of its slow process of oxidation, and its resistance to rancidification, it can last for about 6 months without spoiling. First of all, the coconut oil is good for your health because it will flush out the toxins in a natural way, while at the same time it won’t be harmful to the friendly bacteria and therefore balancing your gut.
Coconut oil is really concentrated with the following fatty acids: caprylic, decanoic, lauric, myristic, palmitic and oleic. It is because of the content of fatty acids that coconut oil works as a best detox and cleanse ingredient. Despite the highly nutritious value it has, the amount of calories it contains is very low compared to other oils.
That means that it is a great health product which can replace any oil in the cooking process, and also be apart of a perfect dressing for your favorite salad. It can also be a part of your personal care routine, used as a skin moisturizer, providing help with dry skin and reducing protein loss in hair. It can either be used raw or applied directly on your skin or hair, or it can take part of some organic product and be an ingredient in soaps, face masks, hair mask, body moisturizers, etc.
Despite the fact that your whole immune system will be reset, here are some of the health benefits that coconut oil provides you:
- Helps with acid reflux
- Eases constipation
- Crohn’s disease
- Fights Diabetes
- Heart Disease
- Stress Relief
- Kidney Disease
- Stomach Ulcers
- Thyroid Balance
All of the health benefits that the coconut oil provides you will truly make a great change in all your bodily functions. Even for healthy people, who haven’t even dealt with such issues, coconut oil will act as a rejuvenating and detoxifying ingredient which will balance your internal organs and therefore provide external results, such as: shiny hair, glowing skin, strong nails, etc.
To prepare the coconut oil cleanse you will need the following ingredients:
- ½ teaspoon of Organic, raw extra virgin coconut oil ( it is important to use the organic coconut oil to get the most benefits)
Follow this procedure:
You should take ½ teaspoon or 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, three times a day for the first 2 weeks. You should afterwards increase the dosage of about 1 to 2 teaspoons three times a day. After this, your body will get used to coconut oil intake and therefore you should start taking coconut oil with water, which is the actual coconut oil cleanse.
The cleanse consists of drinking coconut oil mixed with warm water for about three to seven days. You should take only the mixture and nothing else for that period of time.
During the cleanse it is advisable to drink as much water as you can, in order to flush the harmful parasites in your body easier.
In the period of the cleanse you should take about 10-14 tablespoons of coconut oil a day. They should be taken in an interval of about 2 hours throughout the whole day.
If the taste of coconut oil is too much for you to handle, you can mix it with plain, organic, unsweetened yogurt.
While doing the cleanse you can also eat about 4 ounces of fresh and organic, non- dried and unsweetened coconut meat which is rich in fiber and will nourish the bacteria in your gut.
Note: It is important not to skip any of the steps of this procedure, because your body needs to get used to the detox. You should also try to exclude some food groups at first, such as meat, continue with juicing and make the coconut oil detox as the last part of your journey. We wish you luck!
