According to this paper, lauric acid (a major substance in coconut oil) can trigger an autoimmune response in some which leads to inflammation. If overall inflammation is increasing than that might explain it.
It also can worsen the condition for MS.
Are you prone to autoimmune diseases by any chance?
Yeah definitely possible; don’t mistake natural oil for being good oil for hair. Though we talk about it positively on the forums here, it can negatively effect certain people. Always best to test any product and see what happens instead of blindly using.
I can’t say but all that is important is it will make SOME kind of difference. Just like a crappy diet would, you don’t want to be subjecting your body to it necessarily. The fact it can damage nerves makes me want to steer clear.
