Alzheimer's and Coconut Oil Connection

I'm always curious about any news on Alzheimer's disease and any breakthroughs regarding the treatment for people with that disease.  I have to confess that my curiosity is based on having cared for my father (that's his picture) who eventually died from it back in 2003.  Lately, I have noticed that there are more and more different treatments for multiple medical problems and diseases that are from an organic or homeopathy origin.  And yes, that may also be due to the fact that my girlfriend is 100% organic in her Vegan lifestyle and all I have to do is ask her what she has seen lately and she is ten times better than Google.  Hint, hint Google.  Send me an email and I'll send you her contact info.

Dr. Mary Newport from Florida is all over the internet with her claims of treating her husband who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease with organic coconut oil.  Just four teaspoons a day and she saw dramatic results in the first week.  Over the course of a year her husband slowly regained his abilities according to her statements.  You can see her story in this amazing video about Dr. Mary Newport from You Tube on her treatment plan for her husband who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease with just coconut oil.

This led me on a search to which the girlfriend said to check this page out on the subject.  Over at Natural News they have this to say in the article from 2/23/2012 titled "Coconut oil may be able to reverse the progression of Alzheimer's disease"...

The most cutting-edge research suggests that Alzheimer's may stem from an inability of the brain to process glucose, leading to cell death. But the brain has another source of fuel: ketones, produced by the body from mid-chain triglycerides like those found in coconut oil. In fat, the most promising experimental Alzheimer's drugs being tested today is nothing more than medium-chain triglycerides derived from coconut and palm kernel oil.

Coconut oil also turns out to be an extraordinary cooking oil because it resists smoking, even at high temperatures. Try cooking in coconut oil instead of olive oil (or cheaper vegetable oils) and you'll notice a clear difference. -

Any treatment that is better than a medication from big pharmaceutical companies that claim it "May slow the progression of Alzheimer's Disease" that actually shows results is great news.  Like all treatments, using coconut oil may not work for everyone.  Having hope and trying is better than throwing in the towel and giving up.  You can check out her book as well as others available at Amazon.


PLEASE SEND me any link if you see any news from any source on new breakthroughs in Alzheimer's Disease treatment.  My email is in the side bar.  I'll do a post on it or add it to this one.


5/20/12***  HAT TIP to CW Padden who contacted me about this subject.

Special note from CW... The Coconut oil must be organic, raw, and unboiled.  Processed coconut oil that is hydrogenated is not what this post is all about.  Thank you CW Padden from Ireland!!!  Hugs at ya.
