I'm almost 100%, around 80%... But get some fatigue spells here and there even though I can run 2-3 miles, play sports, and bench press 225 like 7 times.

Would be nice to get up to 300 pounds bench press 3-4 times like my old self, but I'm working at it...

So I decided to try a coconut oil detox, well aware of how monolaurin is supposedly a biofilm buster and coconut oil in general is antibacterial, antifungal, etc... Very skeptic of it being a cure, I took it just to try a detox with other things.

I highly doubt this fatigue feeling is a herx... Honestly I never got bad herxes that everyone talks about, my reactions of antibiotics were always just dizziness and muscle twitches. Point I'm making is just be aware of the side effects from the stuff, it's been published numerous articles how a coconut oil detox can cause some serious symptoms even if you don't have Lyme.

Just be careful, I'm almost 100% and haven't felt this crappy in a long time, years!!! Going on 4th day since I took the stuff, did a hot bath detox still feeling pretty lethargic.

Can't imagine how coconut oil would make a sick Lyme person feel. Just be aware that coconut oil is very thick, it could possibly make you blood very thick as well, which in return cause some serious fatigue when you take it.

And I'm not talking about cooking with it or just a teaspoon a day, that's fine. I did a detox which was up to 10 times in one day...

A virgin coconut oil cleanse is a very simple detoxification method that replaces regular food with virgin coconut oil, usually for about 3-7 days. Start your day with two tablespoons of virgin coconut oil and take 1-2 tablespoons throughout the day as necessary for up to 14 tablespoons total each day.

Some people will experience "die-off" symptoms when they begin a virgin coconut oil detox. These symptoms are often flu-like, including headaches, joint stiffness, dizziness and foggy-thinking. It may not feel so good, but it's a sign that your body is ridding itself of harmful toxins like fungal organisms. Die-off symptoms usually only last for 3-5 days, but you can ease them by gradually introducing virgin coconut oil to your diet before doing a detox.

Do you think it could be hitting yeast? The crushing fatigue I got when first hitting candida was worse than what Lyme/TBD's ever gave me.

Coconut oil works on viruses too. That large a dose would take me out as I've been dealing with ebv. Ebv can cause extreme exhaustion.

Coconut is high in salicylates, so I react very strongly to it. I'm no longer able to tolerate it AT ALL.

Not sure about the coconut oil but there is a very bad cold/flu going around. I had it for a couple of weeks. It goes away & then comes back...

I've had this bone crushing fatigue feeling during this cold. I had CFS awhile ago. I know what it feels like. This flu/cold feels similar. Also, extreme pain in the neck & back like I was kicked by a horse. It is passing but it takes a while.

I know a few people who have had this cold.
