Coconut Oil is Best Treatment for Herpes (cold sores)
I have been using virgin coconut oil for 5 years now to treat my herpes (cold sores) outbreaks. If I eat it regularly (at least 1 tablespoon per day), I do not get cold sores anymore (at all). If I stop taking it for several weeks, I get an occasional cold sore, which goes away in 2-3 days max because I re-start taking the coconut oil immediately, as well as applying it on my cold sore. I do not know what research that doctor did, but this oil (I buy it from tropicaltraditions.com)really cures my herpes. I used to get several cold sores a year, sometimes one every other month, but now I only had maybe 2 - 3 during the last 5 years because of taking coconut oil. I would not have had any, if I did not stop taking it from time to time. The only issue is that I have to take it regularly every day, and sometimes I have a hard time eating it especially in solid form. I basically take the whole tablespoon by mouth (just like a supplement)because I do not really like it in cooking, with few exceptions (I love it on baked sweet potatoes, but not in other foods). I urge anyone getting cold sores to try it.
