The worst disease in the world is Alzheimer, but this can be avoided and memory can be renewed again. Trust us! Here is the story of Mary T. Newport, pediatrist who dealt with her husband’s illness in the 50s.
Steve her husband, had dementia for 5 years. Then he got MRI and he got diagnosis of Alzheimer. This was found at a bad stage.
He was dizzy, confused and had no focus. He did not even work with cutlery, spoons and forks and could not even find food in the fridge. He forgot messages he received and remembered many days later.
His frontal and parietal lobes and hippocampus too and amygdala were atrophied a lot. The short term memory was all gone and he made up new info in his brain later in those days. His wife made radical changes to his diet then.
He got many meds and drugs by the doctors but they did not help. He was skinny and had depression. The motions were limited and he had tremors too. His wife then looked for options in the diet for changes.
This drug was Ketasyn AC 1202 and stopped Alzheimer stages progress in just 3 months. The wife examined this and saw the main item in it- triglyceride oil. And this means coconut oil of the health store.
She gave her husband coconut 2 spoons daily in 2 times, for 2 months. After a year, he got better, recognized faces and spoke normally. He walked in nature and walked on streets again. It improved daily.
She swears by this coconut oil for this problem.
How is coconut good for this?
The brain needs food above all and 60% of glucose goes to the brain.
But, the brain does not use up all glucose cells and this is due to hypermetabolism and bad cognition. The ketone byproducts of fat working up is good for the brain. The feed neurons and nerves due to some brain damage.
Some neurons do not use up the glucose and are resistant to insulin. Ketones save these cells.
Ketones are seen after starvation and also in MCT when they get exposed to oxygen with the liver together and make even more ketones. 97% of fats we eat are long chain triglycerides and contain 18 carbons. Medium chain is 6-12 carbons.
For the Parkinson’s coconut is also goo, and for drug related epilepsy, diabetes and multiple sclerosis.
For more evidence…
In a 2004 study of Neurobiology of Aging said coconut oil improves cognition and memory. Here were tested and monitored 20 people as they got placebos and coconut too. After 90 minutes, the coconut shoed better results with more beta-hydroxybutrate beta OHB , the strongest ketone.
They fasted and starved before this test and blood check up. After 90 min, coconut improved cognition and the dose was just 40 ml.
Mercola stated that Dr. David Perlmutter a neurologist, claimed to avoid fat and carbs during Alzheimer’s.
Both agreed that fasting is good when mixed with coconut and this made more glycogen in the liver. Also this removed extra fat and you get in keto stage easy. This means healthy weight loss and healthy brain, but there is a catch. If ketones get too high, blood acidity is higher and you enter ketoacidosis which is fatal. Eliminate sugars and gluten and have a healthier gut too.
