Lovely Bunch of Coconuts

Surprise! We are still giving Ellie coconut oil.

When we stopped the dosage because she was having horrific respiratory symptoms and it was too much for her body to adjust to, she was fine for one day, had the most amazing lets-take-a-picture poop on day two, and then day three began to have all kinds of crazy symptoms like something was wrong. It was as if I was watching the fungus take back over her body, and I realized that we had made SOME ground and I didn't want her to give it up! So we added back in 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil per day and have been holding strong there ever since.

She is doing great, eczema cleared, and seems to be more of the pace she needs. We are learning a lot about healing and the myths and truths behind die off and detox. The trip to see the new Dr. helped with that a LOT.

So for now we move sooooper.sloooowly. So slowly that it is painful for this impatient mama. A little bit of coconut oil....figuring out how to make fermented coconut water...and on to purchasing a lovely bunch of coconuts!
