Might want to put down the coconut oil.

A recent study showed that eating excessive amounts of lauric acid, found in coconut oil and the supplement monolaurin, might be detrimental to those with autoimmune diseases.

The researchers showed for instance in the laboratory that lauric acid, which makes up over 50% of coconut oil, markedly (by about 50%) increased Th1 and Th17 cell lines, those responsible for driving the inflammatory process in MS, and decreased (by about a third) the Tregs, those that suppress the inflammation in MS.
Th17 cells are inflammatory cells that are typically increased in autoimmune conditions and Tregs are the cells that turn off the inflammation.

Basically, that herx might really just be uncontrolled inflammation. Be careful!
