How Much to Take?
(Monolaurin to kill the virus and bacterial infections.)
Monolaurin: For most illnesses treated by our Monolaurin:
1. An average adult dose is: 3 scoops (3 tsp.) a day, spread through the day.
2. People under 125 pounds: 2 scoops (2 tsp.) a day (though 3 scoops is ok).
3. People over 220 pounds: 4 scoops (4 tsp.) a day (though 3 scoops will work).
1 Week Buildup: We recommend taking a week to build up to a full dose. Most people have what is called a “bacterial load” of pathogen bacteria in their body. (A side bonus is that monolaurin will get rid of these bad bacteria.) Monolaurin kills some of those bad bacteria very quickly. We are simply giving the liver plenty of time to do its normal job and filter the dead bacteria out of the blood.
To build up to a full dose, a 3 scoop person might start with 1 scoop a day for 4 days, then go to 2 scoops (1 am and 1 pm) for 4 days, then up to 3 scoops a day. (You don’t need this start-up period if you have had recent antibiotics, or use the “maintenance” Monolaurin dose described below.)
How Long Do I Take Monolaurin?
Monolaurin: studies show there are no allergies, side effects or interactions with any drugs or nutrients with Monolaurin. It does not boost the immune system or affect any body system. Monolaurin is very safe to take. So, a person simply takes our Monolaurin until they are well. This can be as short as a few weeks for a simple bacterial infection to 4+ months for herpes, hepatitis, HIV, etc. (more details below).
Maintenance Dose: Once the illness symptoms are gone, a person with a potentially re-occurring disease (herpes, etc.) can take a maintenance amount of 1 scoop a day to help prevent them. Re-occurrences occur when a virus or bacteria has burrowed in a cell were they are protected from monolaurin and drugs. At a later date, they can leave the cells looking to re-establish an active disease. This is especially a consideration with Lyme disease, CFS, Herpes, Shingles, Hepatitis and HIV.
People take the maintenance dose simply because then monolaurin is in their blood. If the disease comes out of hiding in the body cells, the monolaurin can come in contact with it and kill it before it can re-establish itself.
Many people have continued the maintenance amount for years and have prevented having any re-occurrences. Fortunately, our Monolaurin is inexpensive and easy to take (the large container will last 6 months). Many people take a maintenance amount year round simply because it also helps defend against many other types of illnesses.
Monolaurin is a Direct Attack!
What we mean by that is that monolaurin directly attacks all pathogen (bad) bacteria and many viruses without harming good bacteria or cells. It does this by a very simple method. All pathogen bacteria, and many viruses, have a lipid (fat) molecule membrane (skin, envelope) around them. Monolaurin is a similar size molecule and absorbs into the membrane and cell. When there, it does two things:
1. It interrupts the reproductive signal, preventing multiplying.
2. It weakens the membrane, causing it to rupture, killing it.
“Like Water Soaking In”
Monolaurin doesn’t seek out a particular disease, it simply absorbs quicker into whatever is the easiest – whatever has the most lipid fat in their membranes. As a general rule, pathogen (bad) bacteria are easier to absorb into than viruses. This is simply because most bacteria generally have a higher level of lipid fat molecules than viruses do (Lyme disease is an exception).
Picture throwing some wood chips into a bucket of water. The water will start absorbing into the wood right away. However, it can take a couple months before some of the chips get water-logged and start sinking. It is the same with monolaurin. For some viruses, it takes a few months before enough monolaurin has absorbed in before they start dying. Then it picks up speed. Usually, tests start showing viral count indicators start dropping at about 2.5 months, and dropping more thereafter. (Our Bio-Fibrin will speed this up.)
OK – How About My Illness?
Surprisingly, most Bacterial infections, MRSA staph and most Flues are actually among the easier and quicker illnesses to deal with. Lyme’s Disease and bacterial causes of CFS are among the bacteria that take longer to absorb into – but monolaurin does and they will die!
The re-occurring chronic viruses, like Herpes, HIV, Hepatitis and Shingles take longer to absorb into. It is pretty common to take 4-5 months to eliminate the active forms. As mentioned above, our Bio-Fibrin will speed this up by dissolving protective biofilms.
So, again, how do you know how long to take monolaurin? The simplest answer is to take a full dose of monolaurin until the symptoms are gone (or by checking with a doctor). Then, for re-occurring illnesses, consider doing the Maintenance amount.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
There are different possible causes of CFS but treat it as Lyme disease (which we suspect it is). Continue according to the reduction of your symptoms. Usually, about 3 months of a full Monolaurin dose, follow by 2 months of reduced dosage has accomplished it for most people. Adding our Bio-Fibrin, as in Lyme disease, is strongly recommended. Body Detox is a consideration.
Hepatitis (all forms)
All Hepatitis viruses have a lipid membrane. Continue according to the reduction of your symptoms. Usually, 4 months of full dose is common for many people. Follow this with 2 months of reduced dose and to consider a maintenance dose after that for re-occurrences. Bio-Fibrin is a very helpful addition. If test counts go lower but then start to level out, Bio-Fibrin might be essential to reduce biofilms.
Herpes and Shingles
Epstein Barr is tough – but monolaurin will kill the virus! Continue according to the reduced symptoms, but 4-5 months of full dose is common for many people. Follow with 2 months of reduced dose and up to a year with a Maintenance dose (especially for shingles) to help prevent re-occurrences. If test counts go lower but then start to level out, Bio-Fibrin might be essential to reduce any biofilms.
Many people have given up on an answer here. Monolaurin will kill HIV but it needs to come into contact with the virus to do so. Continue according to reduced symptoms, but an initial 4 months at full dose will help get rid of the active form and accompanying co-infections. (Bio-Fibrin is very helpful with HIV.) Then, HIV is a strong candidate for ongoing Maintenance amounts to fight re-occurring HIV virus. Monolaurin doesn’t interrupt any other protocol and this is not a place to skimp! If test counts go lower but then start to level out, Bio-Fibrin might be essential to reduce any biofilms.
This is the most common use for our Monolaurin. It is also a good reason to take the Maintenance Dose – at least during flu season. This keeps the bacterial load down so you can immediately go to a full dose if you think you are getting a cold or flu.
How well monolaurin performs depends on how early you catch it happening. Prevention is golden here. (If I even dream I’m getting the flu, I’m up to a full dose)!
It also depends on what flu strain is going around. Different strains of flu vary in their lipid membrane content and results. Many people never catch any flu. We had great success with Swine flu. However, some strains have lower lipid fat content. Even then, monolaurin shortens the duration and intensity compared to other people. (I’ll take any help I can get.)
This is the hardest of the bacterial diseases. Continue according to reducing symptoms, but 3 months of a full dose usually handles the active manifestations. Follow that by 2-3 months of reduced dose to catch anything lingering.
However, Lyme disease can burrow into cells where it is protected from Monolaurin and antibiotics. Because it can come out at a future date, this is also a strong candidate for ongoing monolaurin maintenance. Then, our Monolaurin is in your blood to immediately fight the bacteria it if it comes out – reducing or eliminating future manifestations!
Also, Lyme disease is the worst bacteria for building protective fibrin biofilms and cysts! It was specifically for Lyme disease that we developed our Ultimate Bio-Fibrin to dissolve these biofilms and cysts. This helps monolaurin get to the spirocettes quicker and shortens the time needed and the quality of defeating this disease. Our Body Detox is also a little more important here to help dissolve the biofilms. Even more, it will help remove the heavy metals and toxins released by dissolving the biofilms, thereby reducing any ill effects from those toxins.
We originally started with MRSA staph years ago and it has been the easiest to deal with. It reacts fairly quickly to Monolaurin. Continue according to the symptoms, but 2 months of full dose, follow by 1 months of reduced dosage is usually enough.
Our Skin Defense recommendation is important here to help heal external skin infections and boils.
The Bio-Fibrin important in many cases because, like Lyme disease, MRSA can form protective biofilms.
The Body Detox is usually not needed except with people unusually sensitive to herx reaction.
People and Conditions are Different!
The seriousness and location of an illness can change the length of time needed in taking monolaurin. Digestion of any nutrient varies from person to person. Monolaurin is most effective taken with light food or glass of milk to stimulate digestive action, which increases absorption, but it can be taken anytime if needed. Zypan may be needed if you have acid reflux or bloating hours after a meal.
