Coconut Oil – A Miracle Oil
According to estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO), 33 million people are currently living with HIV around the world today.
Finding a safe and effective, yet affordable, treatment to bring relief to the millions who suffer from this disease has already been found: coconut oil.
We shall let Tony tell his story as printed in the book “Virgin Coconut Oil – Nature’s Miracle Medicine” by Bruce Fife ND:
“The auditorium was filled to capacity. “Where is he?” people were whispering as they glanced around the room. “Has Tony arrived yet?” someone asked. Tony was a special guest speaker at the symposium ‘Why Coconut Cures’ held in the city of Manila, in the Philippines. In attendance were several hundred coconut enthusiasts, including physicians, scientists and government officials. Also in attendance was one of Tony’s doctors, Dr Conrado Dayrit, a professor of pharmacology at the University of the Philippines and a former president of the National Academy of Science and Technology. You see, Tony is an AIDS survivor. He was at the symposium to tell the incredible story of his return from the dead.
‘You don’t know how hard it is for one to have an illness that others find repulsive’ he told the audience ‘I had wanted to shut myself inside my room and just wait for my time to die.’
Tony was infected with HIV while working in the Middle East a few years earlier. When he returned home to the Philippines he was diagnosed with full blown HIV. At this time, Tony was in terrible shape. He was losing weight, had repeated bouts of vomiting and diarrhea, accompanied by a fever and persistent cough. Secondary infections encompassed his entire body. He had pneumonia, oral candidiasis and chronic fatigue syndrome. He was so exhausted that he could hardly pull himself out of bed. His skin was covered with infections from head to toe. Everywhere his skin was flaking, cracking and bleeding. His hair was falling out in clumps; he looked so bad he wore a wig to hide the bald spots and oozing sores in his scalp. The doctors didn’t expect him to live much longer. ‘I felt like a candle that was starting to flicker and die’ he said.
Unable to afford medication, he sought help from the Department of Health. He was referred to Dr Conrado Dayrit. Dr Dayrit had participated in a landmark HIV study a few years earlier. In this study, HIV infected patients were given the equivalent of 3.5 tablespoons of coconut oil a day. Because the patients couldn’t afford medications they received no additional treatment. After three months, 60% of the patients were showing signs of improvement, a clear indication that the coconut oil treatment was working. Normally, without treatment, those with HIV gradually get worse. Although numerous laboratory experiments had previously shown that coconut oil possessed antiviral properties that could knock out HIV, this was the first clinical study to verify these findings.
Dr Dayrit instructed Tony to consume 6 tablespoons of coconut oil daily and apply additional coconut oil over the infections on his skin. Over the next several months when he would go back to the clinic for his periodic checkups the medical staff were amazed at his progress. They couldn’t believe that he was improving more with the coconut oil than he had with the antiviral medications.
(Bruce Fife) met Tony for the first time at the conference. (Bruce) was also one of the speakers. It was less than nine months since Tony had begun his coconut oil therapy. In this time his skin had completely cleared up. His hair had grown back, so that he no longer needed the wig. All of his secondary infections were gone. He got his energy back and he got his life back. You couldn’t tell by looking at him that just a few months earlier he was literally on his death bed dying from HIV.
Now, Tony may never be completely free from the HIV virus. It will probably remain with him for life, but with regular use of coconut oil he is able to live a relatively normal life and enjoy a level of health much like everyone else.
Less than nine months after starting the coconut oil therapy, Tony stood before the audience to tell his story for the first time. ‘HIV virus has not been curable until now’ he said. ‘The antiretrovirals cannot control the infection, which is why a lot of my friends died. Doctors cannot predict how long I will live. When I was diagnosed, my doctors told me I wouldn’t live another three months. Well, here I am now. I’m still standing.’
In the Philippines coconut oil is called the ‘drugstore in a bottle’ because this single oil can be used for so many purposes. It makes an excellent cooking oil and can be used for all types of frying and baking. It is recommended for those who have digestive problems or gall bladder disease because it is easy to digest. It improves the health of the digestive tract and is useful in treating conditions associated with irritable bowel syndrome such as crohn’s disease and colitis. It improves the absorption of vitamins and minerals and, therefore, is recommended for use in the treatment of malnutrition and certain nutritional deficiencies. It possesses potent anticancer properties and can be used in cancer treatment. It helps balance blood sugar and can be beneficial in reversing many of the symptoms associated with diabetes and hypoglycemia. It is a low-calorie fat that can aid in weight loss and weight management. Topically it makes an excellent moisturiser and skin rejuvenator. Perhaps the most incredible characteristics of coconut oil are its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. It is because of these properties that Tony was able to eliminate all of his secondary bacterial, viral and fungal infections and reduce his HIV load. For these reasons, coconut oil has been called the ‘healthiest oil on earth’ ”
