Just wondering if anyone else experienced a scratchy feeling in their throat after ingesting EV coconut oil? It has happened several times, but it doesn’t happen every time. Any thoughts on what might be causing this?June 12, 2012 at 6:47 am #84452

I too am wondering about that. I have a very distinct scratchy feeling in my throat after consuming coconut oil (either straight or with veggies or even in baked items). It’s very noticeable, but has never been bothersome enough to make me stop wanting to eat it. I would love to know what that is all about. Thanks for posting the question.June 12, 2012 at 7:12 am #84459

This is a fairly normal experience with taking the coconut oil “straight”. I always assumed it was due to the fact that this oil is so strong that it possibly irritates the throat a little when coming in direct contact with the tissues. I used to drink a bit of very warm water when I took it in order to wash it down quickly thus, not allowing it to ‘stick’ to the throat tissue.
Have a cup of very warm water sitting by when you take a teaspoonful of the coconut oil. Follow each spoon of oil immediately with a few swallows of the water and see if this helps the situation.

I am lucky I found this old topic :-). Forum search sucks, but I made it through google search 🙂
I am having painful throat, and pharynx (so deep that sometimes I have chest alike pain) and I have need for coughing really often. I figured out I am expiriencing it ever since I increased VCO, but I was not sure is it related since when I stop using it its not getting better that soon, and I did not want to make long break yet.
Question : is it possible to drink it within glass of warm water, since it will melt in water and would be easier to move through the sore.
Also, is it loosing any antifungal effect because of warm water?
thanks!July 16, 2013 at 1:30 pm #107706
