Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Alzheimer’s on the list of the worst diseases in the world. It has no current cure, but treatments for symptoms are available and research continues. Although current Alzheimer’s treatments cannot stop Alzheimer’s from progressing, they can temporarily slow the worsening of dementia symptoms and improve quality of life for those with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Beside everything you just read, we will give you a story of how Mary T. Newport dealt with her husband’s illness during the 50s.
Her husband, Steve, was diagnosed with dementia 5 years before he found out he had Alzheimer’s. His condition was really bad and he was confused, defocused, couldn’t even handle forks and spoons. It was a really bad stage for him and his wife. He would forget to give messages to his wife and then remember them few days later…
His parietal and frontal lobes and hippocampus too (and amygdala as well) were really atrophied and damaged a lot. He was doing really bad, his short term memory was gone, he didn’t know who he was and he would create new info in his brain. This is when his wife, Mary started thinking about what she could change to make him feel better. Then she thought that it’s time to change his diet.
As we know many of the meds that are prescribed from the doctors have no results at all. Because of the meds, Steve got too slim and skinny, he had depression and his motion got restricted and he had many tremors too. This even more made his wife to start changing his diet.
The drug she discovered was Ketasyn AC 1202 which stopped the Alzheimer’s stages in just 3 months after taking. After she examined the drug, and did some researches, she found out that the main substance was triglyceride oil. That meant that she directly got to the health store and bought the coconut oil, because triglyceride is actually coconut oil.
She started giving her husband 2 full spoons of coconut oil 2 times per day. This simple remedy helped Steve to start recognize faces and speak to his family. Even the tremors were removed after just 2 months. He was feeling like a normal person again, he was talking walks on the streets, he was reading and improving each day.
Mary said that the coconut oil is one miraculous remedy given from the nature and that everyone should start using it.
How is coconut good for this issue?
The main thing that our brain needs if food before everything else. According to many researches, 60% of glucose of the food that we eat goes to the brain.
However, the brain does not get every part of the glucose it needs due to hypometabolism or bad cognition work. The byproducts or ketones of fat breakdown are a good option for the brain. They nourish the neurons and nerves after some brain damage.
Some neurons do not absorb the glucose due to resistance to insulin. But ketones could save those cells.
Ketones show after some starvation time but also MCTs when exposed to oxygen together with the liver make more and more ketones. 97% of fats we ingest are long chain triglyceride and have the 18 carbons. A medium chain is of 6-12 carbons.
Coconut oil can be good solution for Parkinson’s too. It can also be used for drug related epilepsy and diabetes and even multiple sclerosis.
If you need more evidence…
According to a study made in 2004 of the Neurobiology of Aging, the coconut oil makes cognition better and memory improved. The study was done on 20 people which received placebos and coconut oil. The substances were left to work for hour and a half, and after that the people with coconut oil stated to have more beta-hydroxybutyrate beta OHB, which is the most powerful ketone.
They all fasted and ‘starved’ before the experiment and blood testing. Then after 90 min of the coconut method and the cognition test, again. 40 ml was the average dose.
Dr. Mercola stated how Dr. David Perlmutter a good neurologist, claimed avoidance of fat and ingesting loads of carbs is the culprit of the Alzheimer’s and the lifestyle.
They both claimed that it’s better to combine food with coconut in order to increase the glycogen in the liver. In this process the extra fat deposits will be removed and you will get to the keto stage easily. This can be and easy and healthy way in which you can lose weight, and make your brain healthier. But, be careful because if the ketones are too high, blood acidity will rise to and you will have ketoacidosis that can be sometimes fatal. You just need to cut the sugars and gluten, and keep the gut flora healthy.
