Cleanse Detox: How to
If you’ve never used coconut oil before, it’s advisable to allow your body some time to adjust to it. This can be done by slowly incorporating the oil into your diet before trying the detox treatment.
Start with half to one teaspoon, 3 times a day, and gradually increase it up to 2 tablespoons, 3 times a day. You can commence a coconut oil detox only when you’re comfortable taking this much coconut oil. The adjustment before the detox cleanse may take two weeks.
