Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, Shingles and Virgin Coconut Oil

My niece was diagnosed 3 years ago to have Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is the condition of having an abnormally low platelet count (thrombocytopenia) of unknown cause (idiopathic). Her platelet count drops whenever her immune system weakens. Whenever her platelet counts drop to around 10,000 level, she would always be rushed to hospital. Her doctor's prescribed steroids in order to boost her immune system and could help to increase her platelet counts. In 2 or 3 weeks time, her platelet count increases. But 2 or 3 months after, her platelet count drops again. She has been suffering from this sickness since she was in 4th year high school. Now she's in her 2nd year university studies and she still suffers from this condition every now and then.

Last week, her platelet count drops to around 11,000 again. Her doctor gave her steroids again. I adviced her to take Virgin Coconut Oil as I believe this oil could possibly help her to strengthen her immune system. I have read about the researched done by some doctors about using the VCO in treating patients with HIV and I believe, it could help my niece. So I have asked her to take 1 tablespoon of VCO in the morning and 1 tablespoon at night. My niece doesn't want to take it because she said that the taste of oil is yucky. But I insist that she try it. Yesterday, she went for a checkup again and with God's grace, her platelet count shoots up to 110,000 level. It's really a blessing and proven to be effective. Within 1 week of taking her VCO, her platelet count shoots up by more than 100,000. She sent an email to me this morning thanking me that my VCO works and that she's really very happy about it. I advice her to continue taking up VCO daily.

Now, I am a firm believer of the great health benefits of this Virgin Coconut Oil can give. I myself had benefitted from this VCO. I got shingles last October. The affected area of shingles on my body was somewhat painful and itchy. At first, I didn't know what was this red watery spot at my back and my sister-in-law said that it seems to be Shingles. I applied VCO to the affected area and immediately, I feel relief from pain and itchiness. I applied VCO daily on my back (affected area) and after 7 days, the shingles disappeared.

I am now an avid user of VCO.
