Coconut Oil As An Alzheimer’s Treatment
Coconut oil is being used as part of an Alzheimer’s treatment. Steve Newport’s Alzheimer’s disease slowed considerably and some symptoms even reversed. This was due to an unlikely treatment prescribed by his wife, Dr. Mary Newport. Steve failed the Alzheimer’s clock test, drawing only a few circles and numbers randomly on the paper. At that point, he was on the verge of severe Alzheimer’s. Dr. Newport researched and found Alzheimer’s is a type of diabetes of the brain. Actually, it’s a process that starts happening at least 10-20 years before ALZ symptoms appear. In this case, insulin problems prevent brain cells from accepting glucose, their primary fuel. Without it, the brain cells eventually die. However, there is an alternative fuel, called ketones, which are easily accepted by brain cells. These ketones are metabolized in the liver after you eat medium chain triglycerides (MCT) found in coconut oil.
Dr. Newport added coconut oil to Steve’s diet, and just two weeks later he repeated the clock test with notable improvement. Three weeks after that, he took the clock test a third time and showed even more improvement. In approximately 2-3 months, Steve was showing gains intellectually as well as physically and emotionally. Remarkably, he was then able to run and read again. In addition, he was joking and more talkative along with having more energy. Others are also including coconut oil in their diets and seeing results.
Ketone Ester – 10 Times More Powerful Than Coconut Oil
A more powerful ketone ester has been developed which is ten times greater than coconut oil. Funding is needed to scale up production. Until then, it’s important to choose pure, non-hydrogenated coconut oil. It increases good HDL cholesterol levels and may help those with Parkinson’s Disease, ALS, Epilepsy, dementia and even schizophrenia and autism. Coconut oil is a natural antibiotic that also helps kill viruses like HIV and herpes viruses. It tends to keep the bacteria down so the immune system can concentrate on fighting the virus.
Dr. Mary Newport explains how MCT (medium chain triglyceride), found in coconut oil, can be helpful in treating Alzheimer’s as well as other diseases involving the brain. In her book below, she explains more about ketones and continues the story of her husband Steve’s progress.
