View Full Version : Dryness
Has anybody had extreme dryness after going raw? Can to much oil cause flaking and chafing?
A couple of months ago I started taking 1 tablespoon of Coconut oil 2x a day along with that I take 1 tablespoon of Udo oil. It's been a couple of months since I started this and I now find myself breakingout the dryness chafing and flaking.
If I were you I would reverse the amounts on the oils:
Take 1 TB of coconut (saturated fats)
2 TB of UDO (unsaturated, balanced for omega3 : omega6)

Also, don't be afraid to use the coconut oil on your skin as well. It helps me with breakouts and leaves my skin lovely and soft. I put it on at night after a shower and wake up the next day dryness-free :)

I haven't had external dryness but my mouth has been so dry for the past month and a half. I wake up in the middle of the night and I almost panic it's so dry. I'm peeing way more than I ever did on cooked foods so I can't be dehydrated can I?
I get the same thing!
I try not to drink too much in the evening or I'm up all night back and forth to the bathroom.
But my mouth is just parched during the night.
This never happened when I was eating cooked.
I used to worry obout it but now I just drink a lot when I get up in the morning and the rest of the day is fine
Alex, please explain why you suggest to change the oils around, not critizing just wondering about the benefit. Thank you.
Coriander74 - I'll try that. Thanks.
Pawlapolooza - I pee a lot at night as well, but I attribute that to me being a diabetic. Diabetics drink a great deal of water and pee often. Thanks.
;) ;) ;)
According to Udo Erasmus (Fats That Heal Fats That Kill), the body has a much lower requirement for saturated fat than for unsaturated.
Saturated fat is the kind found in meat and dairy primarily. Coconuts are unusal in that they contain mostly saturated fat.
Kevin Trudeau recommends one TB of coconut oil per day to satisfy the body's saturated fat needs.
Udo Oil is blended, unrefined and correctly adjusted for omega6 : omega3 ratio - these two are the two essential fatty acids that we require.
Udo Oil also contains GLA a rare fat that is known to be beneficial.
The articles on Udo's website are useful:
Hope this helps
