When my symptoms started reappearing, it was after a month of taking Vitamin B supplements for hair growth. My Naturopath told me that it was possible that this kicked up a herx from yeast overgrowth, or even the Lyme again.

I have been reading about Coconut Oil and it’s effects on yeast, and I’m thinking of trying it soon. The only thing that scares me is, according to some who have tried this (without Lyme, I believe), it has caused some huge herx reactions.

So, I’m wondering if anyone here has any experience with it, and if it would be something worth trying out. I emailed Zhang and asked if there was any contradiction with Coconut Oil and his protocol, and they said no, but I’m still a bit weary, due to the horror stories of herxes.

I bought golden rod in liquid form and mix it with your juice. It seems to have helped me. They had to order it for me from a nutritional supplement store.

I use the organic coconut oil to cook with. My LLMD recommended it.

i use the organic coconut oil to cook with as well- does anyone know if cooking with it has the same affects as eating it by spoonfuls? or does the heat take away the nutritional benefits of it?

My LLMD told me it's very stable to cook with and she prefers I use it over olive oil. She says to only have olive oil at room temp.

I use coconut oil for everything. I brush my teeth with it. I eat it. I use it on my body, face, hair (at night). Its one of those amazing versatile healing gifts from the earth. Don't I sound like a hippie?

I've never noticed herxing from it...and I herx beyond easily. I don't believe that it could contradict any sort of protocol. Its pure. It can only help you.

Take it slow. Do a little at a time and eventually build up to more. I pretty much use it for everything, it's so good for you. Just make sure you buy the virgin kind not the processed it's pretty important. If your looking for a good brand try vitacost. You could get it either on their website or amazon. It's about half the price of most coconut oils while still keeping pretty good quality if not better than the others.

about the herxes, you could detox if you're not already. It really reduces the severity if you do have one.
