Official by me, anyway. When I first started this diet I was eating quite a bit of coconut oil. I had been told that it has properties that can help cleanse & get rid of candida. At the time my throat felt a little funny when I would eat it, but it wasn't terrible. I quit eating it for a while because I read somewhere that butter was better. I just started cooking with that instead.
I got a new shipment of coconut oil, because I had been using it to cook for my family. I tried it again, and almost immediately my throat started itching, to the point of a little coughing. It's still a bit itchy, and my skin is itchy, too. Sheesh. I hope this is temporary, because it's supposed to be so good for you!
Oh, and big bummer about the Coconut Bliss ice cream that I sometimes would have a few bites of as my little luxury. I noticed the itching when I would eat it too, but I didn't have very much so I thought it was okay. I'm going to have to stock up on Goat's Milk Ice cream to take it's place.
