Ongoing trials by DOST reveal virgin coconut oil’s promising results on treating, managing COVID Virgin coconut oil can possibly help prevent, manage and treat COVID-19 patients, research says. ANCX | Aug 03 2020 The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is currently doing trials to see how effective VCO is in combatting the COVID-19 virus, but have noted promising results. As trials for coronavirus vaccines are still underway, we are left with no choice but to simply wait and do the necessary safety precautions—wear a mask and a face shield, wash our hands thoroughly, and observe physical distancing. But what if we add another to-do? According to Dr. Fabian M. Dayrit, president of the Integrated Chemists of the Philippines, we’ve got something locally available that can help prevent, manage, and treat novel coronavirus patients—virgin coconut oil (VCO). The doctor has been doing his studies on coconut oil for over 15 years. “There are two general strategies against viral diseases. First, to develop drugs which are directly antiviral, and second, to use the body’s own immune system to defend [itself] against the virus,” noted a research by Dr. Dayrit and Dr. Mary T. Newport, a neonatologist, international speaker, and an advocate for using coconut oil. According to Dr. Dayrit, there are enough studies to prove that VCO has antiviral and immunomodulatory properties. Upon ingestion, coconut oil produces lauric acid and monolaurin, two compounds which have been known for many years to have significant antiviral activity. Dr. Jose Mondejar, medical director Equilibrium Integrative Health Clinic, who had reached out to Dr. Dayrit regarding his VCO studies, gave the oil to 69 residents of Sitio Luz, Barangay Zapatera. They were among the first COVID-19 patients of Cebu City in April. They initially took 1 tablespoon of VCO twice a day, which later increased to thrice a day, he said in an interview with DZMM. Within 2 weeks, 45 of the 69 patients tested negative, while 24 did not develop worse symptoms. Similarly, VCO is also credited for keeping the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) COVID-free. After taking VCO starting May 15, 7 jail workers with COVID-19 tested negative for the pathogen within a week. Three other workers tested negative within 8 days, he said. The jail has not tallied any new case of COVID-19 since. Dr. Dayrit, who’s also a professor at the Ateneo de Manila University-School of Science and Engineering's chemistry department, clarifies that these are not clinical studies. “They were invited to treat people, not to do a study. What we did was to gather data so that it can be explained more rationally. In 30 days, [the confirmed COVID positive patients] were all eventually negative,” said Dr. Dayrit.

It does not create body damaging free radicals like most cooking oils and the saturated fat is of a type good for the body. 4 hours ago Julia Louis Dreyfus Ongoing trials by DOST reveal virgin coconut oil’s promising results on treating, managing COVID Virgin coconut oil can possibly help prevent, manage and treat COVID-19 patients, research says.

It detoxifies the body of many deadly toxins, is highly anticancer and greatly improves nutrient absorption helping to alleviate malnutrition. The medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in coconut oil kill many deadly viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites yet is totally safe. The MCFAs in coconut oil kill candida which is normally held in check by friendly intestinal bacteria but runs amok when antibiotics kill off the friendly bacteria. Coconut oil does not harm the friendly intestinal bacteria and should be taken in conjunction with any antibiotics. Everybody should probably be taking coconut oil. Www. Coconut Research Center.

Who or what inspired your career in medicine? My parents are engineers, so I grew up tinkering with various objects and was fascinated by science and math. Deciding on medicine was a gradual trajectory for me. I pursued undergraduate studies in biomedical engineering at UT-Austin and really enjoyed it because of the opportunities for problem-solving. However, I quickly realized I wanted to be with patients when the devices we made were handed to them, so I explored medicine more thoroughly. I enjoyed it a lot more because of how dynamic the field is and the connections we form with patients. My parents remain my inspiration for my career as they were integral to the formative experiences that have placed me where I am.

What is one thing you need to do your job? Coffee! I’ve never gone a day without coffee during rotations, for better or for worse.

If you could give one piece of advice to future physicians, what would it be? From day 1, cultivate experiences for yourself outside of medicine, whether that’s with other people or engaging in new hobbies, as that’s what will help you maintain your energy throughout training.

Why are you a TMA member? I fell into TMA involvement as a first-year [medical student] because I was interested in the advocacy and leadership opportunities within the organization. Since I’ve joined, I’ve focused on advocacy issues I care about, and realized how important organized medicine is as a force for improving the health of our patients. For medical students, TMA can be a great way to develop your identity within medicine and engage in opportunities to define your role as a patient advocate. For many, including myself, TMA involvement serves as a launchpad for growth as a physician leader.

Do you have a personal motto or favorite quote? “Bloom where you are planted.”

Name one song that makes you happy or inspires you? “For Aisha” by Memba

TMA Grants Can Help Your Practice Improve Local Vaccination Rates 08/10/2021

TMA Grants Can Help Your Practice Improve Local Vaccination Rates

As part of TMA's Vaccines Defend What Matters (https://www.texmed.org/defendwhatmatters/), TMA Foundation (TMAF) has been offering local impact grants of up to $3,500 to fund vaccination activities, educational resources, and community outreach events. We are excited to announce we have the opportunity for a last round of funding for the 2021 cycle. County medical societies, TMA Alliance chapters, medical student chapters, and TMA member-physician practices/clinics can apply online, https://www.texmed.org/LocalImpactGrants/.

Grants can fund initiatives such as shot clinics to vaccinate underserved and uninsured people; events that educate the public about vaccinations; and/or outreach initiatives that address vaccine hesitancy.

TMA encourages physicians, medical students, and alliance members to apply for grants to fund a variety of vaccine clinics. However, applicants who wish to fund a COVID-19 vaccination clinic should confirm with the Texas Department of State Health Services that they have doses before applying for a grant.

Priority funding will go to applicants whose focus is in areas of greatest need, including counties with low immunization rates and high rates of conscientious exemptions.

The deadline for grant applicants is Sept 1. Visit the Vaccines Defend What Matters webpage for more information and to apply for a grant.

For any questions about the applications, please contact Daniel Marquez at [email protected].

TMA Grants Can Help Your Practice Improve Local Vaccination Rates Apply for a grant. Vaccines Defend What Matters (formerly Be Wise – Immunize) is TMA’s integrated, multimedia public health education and advocacy effort to overcome vaccine hesitancy and increase vaccination rates in Texas.
