In order to eliminate viruses, bacteria and harmful parasites from your system, you need to detox your body to cleanse it. One of the best options to do this is by using coconut oil.
This being said, this oil contains medium chain triglycerides which will be able to build up and boost the immune system and the lauric and caprylic acid will give you antifungal, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties.
What will happen is that they will only attack the harmful bacteria and leave the positive one alone. This will balance the gut flora in the digestive system. In fact, it has been proven scientifically that coconut oil destroys yeast and another fungal overgrowth in the body.

How to Use Coconut Oil for Body Detox
Before you start, you need to bear in mind that you have to use organic, raw extra virgin coconut oil. Also, drink a lot of water during the cleanse so that your body can get the parasites out.
If this is the first time you are consuming coconut oil, you need to help your body adjust to it, so try to incorporate it into your diet bit by bit before you do the cleanse.
So, what you have to do is take 1/2-1 teaspoon three times a day and then slowly get to 1-2 tablespoons three times a day. When two weeks pass, the body will get used to the oil and you can commence the coconut oil detox.
Just add the oil to warm water and drink the drink daily for a whole week. You need to take 10-14 tablespoons of it a day, two every two hours.
If you notice that the taste is too strong for you, then, you can add the coconut oil to plain, organic, unflavored, unsweetened yogurt. Also, you can eat no more than 4 ounces of fresh, non-dried, unsweetened coconut meat which is full of fiber and is able to boost the good gut bacteria.
That is all! Good luck with the coconut oil detox!
