Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Is A Cure?

Though Dr. Mary T. Newport has provided professional care to newborns since 1983, she’s led a double life since 2000 when she became a caregiver at home, That’s when her beloved husband, Steve, first showed signs of Alzheimer’s disease. After his deterioration accelerated in 2004, Dr. Newport began avidly researching ways to keep him functional for as long as possible. Since she undestands medical terminology and scientific methods, she was thrilled to find new research showing that medium-chain fatty acids, which act like an alternative fuel in the insulin-deficient Alzheimer’s brain, can sometimes reverse or at least stabilize the disease. When she gave Steve about 2 table-spoons of coconut oil (a source of these fats) at breakfast before a memory test that he had previously failed, Steve miraculously passed the test. Since then, Steve continues to maintain improvement while taking daily doses of coconut oil and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil wih meals.

Dr. Newport’s story of Steve’s reprieve from Alzheimer’s provides hope for caregivers eager to learn about readily available fatty acids in foods that may reverse the ravages of this dreaded disease. Changes in loved ones may take many forms,including improved memory, return of personality, resumption of activities and social interaction, and relief from certain physical symptoms. Because ketone esters, a synthized form of these powerful fatty acids, work faster and more comprehensively than fatty acids in foods, Dr. Newport has become an ardent advocte for ketone ester research, with FDA approval her final goal.

Caregivers for the more than 5 million people in the United States who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease are searching desperately for hope, relief, and a cure. They will find all that in this book that summarizes Dr. Newport’s research and Steve’s reprieve, the importnce of medium-chain fatty acids, and how Alzheim’ers patients can make the transition to a healthy diet rich in these vital fats.

Coconut oil cleared my brain fog, December 29, 2011

This review is from: Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was a Cure? (Paperback)

A friend told me about this book when I told her I was worried about brain fog, memory loss and inability to remember people’s faces. I wasn’t sure if this was menopausal, or due to having cancer 3 years ago – but it certainly made me worried.

I cut back the carbs in my diet and added 4-7 tablespoons of coconut oil into my diet. After a week I noticed that using the Nintendo Brain Trainer my memory test score showed my highest score ever – a 20% improvement on previous measurements. My brain feels clearer and I feel less spaced out.

This is a really important work and I wish I’d come across it before my dad, who had Alzheimer’s, died.

It’s becoming so clear that so much illness can be resolved just by improving your diet. People do not grow healthy and strong eating pizza, pasta and Cola. Including essential fats (coconut oil and fish oil) and several portions of green vegetables daily, and cutting out sugar and trans fats can make a big difference to your health.

The long held truth that low fat is the way to health is now being found to be completely incorrect. Your brain is made of fat and the sheaths that surround your nerves are made of fat, and if you’re not eating any fat, how can they be repaired!! The wrong fats have given the good fats a bad press. Margarines, transfats and hydrogenated oils are all bad – which is why manufacturers are now removing them from products. Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil is good, but most other vegetable oils are very processed and not good for your health.

There is a belief that coconut oil is bad for you – but again this is an outdated information that has been proven incorrect. The medical profession know this as premature babies are fed on supplements made from coconut oil and so are patients in intensive care unit who can’t eat.

Do your own research into fats and health and you’ll find that a lot of what you believed to be true has been proven wrong. The new paradigm is that too many carbohydrates and particularly too much refined sugar, or refined flour, is the reason for the increase in illhealth that we see around us. A diet full of fresh food – lots of portions of vegetables and fruits is the way to go for improvement in health.

Could Coconut Oil Be The Cure For Alzheimer’s Disease?, December 18, 2011

This review is from: Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was a Cure? (Paperback)

One of the worst possible neurological diseases people could ever be diagnosed with is Alzheimer’s. From the memory loss to weight loss to depression, it’s a sad state for the people afflicted with it as well as the family members who are left to deal with a loved one who may or may not recognize them on a day-to-day basis. With 5.3 million Americans suffering from Alzheimer’s disease today with a new case being identified every 70 seconds, finding a solution for this problem is a serious topic worthy of discussion. The author of this book stumbled upon an unexpected dietary “cure” for her husband’s Alzheimer’s disease.

We are privileged to have this amazing book ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE: WHAT IF THERE WAS A CURE by author Dr. Mary Newport who I first found out about after reading a St. Petersburg Times story about how feeding her husband coconut oil greatly IMPROVED his Alzheimer’s. It was such an extraordinary story that I just HAD to learn more about her. I was thrilled to hear she wrote a book about what she uncovered that helped her husband so much.

Dr. Newport correctly identifies the glucose connection to Alzheimer’s disease which is now becoming well-known in medical circles as Type 3 diabetes, how ketone bodies are the preferred fuel for brain function, and why medium chain triglycerides (MTCs) found in coconut oil are a miracle for her husband’s condition. This is one of the most stunning personal testimonies of how a high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet can dramatically improve health. You can’t help but be a believer after reading what Dr. Newport has to share about her husband Steve is overcoming his tremors, regain cognitive function, and DEFEATING his Alzheimer’s.

Could coconut oil be the cure for Alzheimer’s disease? READ THE BOOK and decide for yourself!

Great info. on coconut oil’s benefits on brain cells, January 3, 2012

This review is from: Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was a Cure? (Paperback)

Enjoyed reading this book and how this Neonatologist lovingly brought her husband back from the black hole of alzheimers. She had interesting things to say about the Alzheimers Association with regard to her discovery of coconut oil as an alternative fuel source for brain cells. I couldn’t put this book down; finished it in two days. Then I passed the book on to my mother. There is a definite problem with the western diet that I believe is the reason for so many health problems today. Simple changes like the fats we eat can have big health benefits.
