Our latest treatment method with Valentino is coconut oil, coconut oil and more coconut oil.
Coconut oil is said to benefit the lung function and help with weight gain and digestive issues. I’m not sure yet how coconut oil can benefit lung function. I have read some information that says it is ant-viral and anti-fungal. So I’m thinking the coconut oil helps fight infection. I will continue to research and post links as I find substantive research. If anybody already has links to reputable informational sites, please let me know.
We have been adding coconut oil to Val’s food, rubbing it onto his body, and in particular massaging it into his belly before bed. I have used the extra oil on my hands to rub into my hair, my face and body. The side effect of Valentino’s new treatment therapy is that my hair looks extremely healthy and shiny and my skin is nice and soft. My chapped lips have also been cured.
As for Valentino, we have been able to stop using the Miralax as his constipation has been eased. We have also stopped using the chemical laden Pediasure and have instead opted for homemade baby food with coconut oil and vitamins added to the food. I’m thrilled to have him off of the Pediasure since the ingredient list is pretty terrifying.
For now we’ll stick to coconut oil, coconut oil and MORE coconut oil.
