Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Ulcerative Colitis
We received an email from Graham in England, who has been using extra virgin olive oil to help heal his ulcerative colitis. He takes it on an empty stomach, 3 times a day. And it is very important that you use a clean and potent brand of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). I wanted to let you read his story, along with complete dosing instructions, in case you would like to try it.
I also wonder how this same protocol would work using raw coconut oil instead of, or, along with the olive oil?
Graham writes: “Here are a few of the main reasons why I believe it is so effective/protective for UC:
1) Kills some nasty bacteria’s like Helibactor Pylori.
2) “Oleocanthal ” (only in EVOO) is a natural low dose anti inflammatory which also helps with pain relief around the body.
3) It’s fatty acids have proven wound healing properties.
4) Speeds up digestive transit time. Every time I quit smoking (without EVOO) my normal BM’s ground to a halt. I experienced bloating and reduced BM’s for a few weeks. Followed by the nastier UC symptoms and inevitable multi daily BM’s and blood!”
