The Alzheimer’s Disease-Coconut Oil Frustration

Alzheimers - coconut connection
click image for more information

As a Certified Holistic Nutritionist I get excited about foods that heal.  I have been interested in disease reversal including cancer since I was 21.  Little did I know that I would be diagnosed with it when I was older. I managed to fight it and survive my battle.  Some of it was natural and some of it was old fashioned surgery. Natural cancer treatments can be quite complex and costly and can require enormous dedication and consistency.  And so when it comes to disease reversal and a tragic disease such as Alzheimer’s disease, I am eager and frustrated in my attempts to spread the news about the amazing simplicity of coconut oil – this natural remedy (not a cure).  Many of us know someone with this disease and we may even wonder if one day we might also become an Alzheimer’s statistic.  There are over half a million Canadians who suffer from this disease, and one in eleven Canadians over the age of 65 have some sort of dementia.

Ketone Bodies from Coconut Oil Nourish “Diabetic” Brain Cells

I have not seen a disease or disorder so easily reversed as Alzheimer’s Disease. (Over 200 personal testimonials have been sent to Dr. Mary Newport, wife/M.D. of a recovering Alzheimer’s patient).  Nothing seems to work faster in stopping the progression of many cases of Alzheimer’s like coconut oil and MCT oil. The healing action is in the body’s production of ketones, which is induced by the mitochondrial action when the medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil (and palm oil) pass through the intestinal wall to the liver.  These ketones then pass into the brain from the blood and nourish brain cells (neurons) which, in cases of certain neurological disorders, no longer process glucose due to a brain insulin malfunction. New research shows that some neurological disorders are caused by a “diabetes of the brain”.  (See de la Monte, Frontiers in BioScience – Elite Ed., 2012, Jan1;4:1582-1605.)

Research Supports the Ketone-Brain Connection – “Diabetes of the Brain”

Actually, we already know that Namenda and Aricept, which are still being prescribed for Alzheimer’s, do little to stop the progression of this disease.   This is no secret. And yet, it is so hard to convince my local community to open their minds to this new coconut ketone connection.  Researchers have known about the brain’s ability to use ketones since the 1960’s (Owen, Morgan, Kemp, Sullivan, Herrera, Cahill – Ketone Bodies, Potential Therapeutic Uses. Please see Int. Union of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, 2001, Apr;51(4):241-247). Researchers have also known about the ketone-Alzheimer’s link for more than 10 years (Cahill,Veech – Ketoacids? Good Medicine? See Trans American Clinical Climatological Asso. Journal 2003;114:149-161, Discussion 162-163). So why is it taking so long to spread the word?

Other Neurological Diseases Also Benefit From Ketones

The interesting and exciting news is that the benefits of coconut oil are even more far reaching!! Ketones from coconut oil can also help stop the progression of numerous other diseases that affect the nervous system including Lou Gehrig’s disease, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Autism, Bipolar Disorder, Macular Degeneration & Glaucoma, etc.  Mary Newport has received letters discussing amazing success from those who have tried coconut oil for other neurological diseases and brain traumas including stroke and brain injury resulting in coma.  Have you processed this stunning information yet?

My Pitch for Coconut Ketones on Rogers Television – Toronto

I had the good fortune to meet Dr. Newport at a Canadian Health Food Association trade show in the fall of 2011 and she gave me a signed copy of her book.  As a Holistic Nutritionist who just loves to talk about healing and disease reversal, I was so amazed I just had to spread this good news as fast as I could. I contacted Rogers Television not long after I read Dr. Newport’s book.  I was lucky enough to secure a segment in February on Finding Your Bliss with producer Carolyn Sohanewsky. The show went well, but I received no feedback from anyone via my website about this stunning information.  How disappointing!

My First Public Lecture at the Aurora Library

I also spoke about her book at the Aurora Ontario Library just last month.  The small crowd that came were great but we need a better way.  I plan to continue talking about the coconut ketone-Alzheimer’s connection in the near future. Please stay tuned for more lectures about this good news.  In the meantime please help me get the word out by mentioning this information and my blog and website to anyone you feel would benefit from this information.

If you are at all interested in Alzheimer’s disease, a caregiver, or know of someone who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease at any stage, please tell them to read Dr. Mary Newport’s book Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was A Cure? , spend a few minutes on her website or contact me for more information.

I’d love your feedback on this subject. Feel free to leave a comment right here on the site and link back to your own blog if you have one through the commentluv feature here on my website.

    Where can I get these coconut ketones? I would love to try them on my autistic son, and for myself!

      Hi Laura,
      When the liver processes medium chain triglycerides, several types of ketones are formed.
      Autism is certainly one of the disorders that can benefit from ketones, in addition to many other mental disorders.
      In many cases, brain cells or neurons which have experienced damage or trauma can benefit from a trial of ketone therapy.
      If you would like to see what coconut ketones can do for you, you can try taking coconut oil straight from the container at in amount of about 1 tsp 4 times per day, increasing to 1-2 tbsp- 4 times per day.
      You can get coconut oil for a good price at Costco…. or just about any health food store. Do you live in Canada or the U.S.?

    My wife has the borderline type two diabetes, high blood pressure, alzhiemers and siesures from an old temperal bump on her head.
    Prescriptions were given to her for each condition.
    Vimpat for her blackout siesures and namenda and exelon patches for alzhiemers.
    She continued to get worse with alz.
    I had to assist her with or do it for her everything a person does.
    So we had nothing to loose at this point, but with coconut oil we had hope.
    I heard about the coconut oil and went on line to learn more.
    I imediatlely went o the store and bought a jar which I found in the cooking oil section of supermarket.
    Started her on two tablespoons that evening.
    Next morning she got out of bed all by herself and has been doing it most of time sense. She now talks with a voice instead of a whisper. There are other improvements.
    Along the way I kept searching for more info and started ordering the gold seal virgin coconut oil and have continued to use it in her drinks and or food. Making sure she gets a minimum of three plus tablespoons per day.

    I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that coconut oil is helping to push back on the blackouts and alz. Because I no longer give her the vimpat, naminda or the exelon patch.
    Improvement in her condition is still ongoing a little bit at a time.
    She has not had any more blackouts and she can now carry on a conversation with me, she remembers things that had disappeared,
    This road back started in November 2012.
    No I haven’t bought any of the books as I am using my limited as funds to buying foods to also improve her diet with more fish and fresh veg.

    Thank God for Dr. Newport and her determination to do something and share it with the world.

    I am age 70. Over the last 10 years I noticed several progressively developing symptoms which included shaking in my hands when I lifted a glass to drink or used a fork or spoon; occasionally a foot would drag as I walked; I sometimes noticed a slight amount of moisture seeping from one corner of my mouth; and sometimes had difficulty swallowing.

    I finally experimented with several self help ideas four years ago. Along with my normal diet regimen, I took high doses of iodine (50mg daily) along with selenium, L-tyrosine, and magnesium, and I improved about 60%, but still had symptoms. Last year I discovered the ketogenic diet and as part of that took a few tablespoons of coconut oil daily to help meet my goal of 75% fat in my diet (lost 70 lbs down to a normal 167 very easily). All the symptoms disappeared except for an almost imperceptible level of shaking in my hands when under undue stress. The clarity in my thinking is in my opinion better than it ever was.

      Thanks so much for commenting, I do hope you keep up with your supplements and coconut oil, it really is amazing!
