Tony from Quezon City, Philippines writes Earth Clinic: “I used to be a regular sufferer of flu. About 3 years ago, after reading in a book that coconut oil can kill the influenza virus that causes flu based on in-vitro studies, I took 4 tablespoon of Virgin Coconut Oil when I had flu, went to sleep and woke up after about 6 hours later and found my flu amazingly gone. Since then, I take at least 1 tablespoon of Virgin Coconut Oil everyday, and when I feel an onset of flu, I increase the intake up to 4 tablespoon and predictably the flu would not continue.”
WT from Spartanburg, SC writes Earth Clinic: “Whether it’s Bird flu or the regular flu. If any virus is classified a flu virus, coconut oil will kill it.
