This woman thinks that composites identified as ketone bodies, which are made when the body is ingesting coconut oil, could be a possible alternative ammunition for our brains. This could advance one of the most groundbreaking innovations in traditional medicine in modern years.
How this theory first began…
Dr. Newport’s husband, Steve, was experiencing progressive dementia for five years and more. He was just 50-years-old and after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
She relates, “Many days, often for several days in a row, he was in a fog; couldn’t find a spoon or remember how to get water out of the refrigerator… One day I would ask if a certain call came that I was expecting and he would say ‘No.’ Two days later he would remember the message from so-and-so from a couple of days earlier and what they said.”
Her husband had little to no short-term memory, yet the external information flooding his body like everyone else was still lodged somewhere in his brain. She started to think that her husband’s diet had a major role to play. Medication for her husband led to depression, rapid weight loss and general degradation of motor abilities took hold. Steve forgot how to perform many common tasks, but spent most days working in the yard or in his garage and remained in good physical condition.
But there was hope…
Average chain triglycerides or ketone bodies have been cropping up a lot in Alzheimer’s studies lately. They are created to not only treat but check Alzheimer’s disease, Dr. Newport’s noticed this.
Amanda Smith, Medical Director at University of South Florida (USF) Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute reported the following for CTV News:
“The pharmaceutical industry is in this — of course, to make money for their companies, and of course they want to help people theoretically — but at the end of the day it is about dollars and cents, and so money gets invested in things that are new or patentable rather than things that are sitting on the shelf already.”
This kind of treatment can be also helpful in treating Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, various sclerosis, drug resistant epilepsy, and diabetes.
Dr. Newport explains, “Ketone bodies may help the brain recover after a loss of oxygen in newborns through adults, may help the heart recover after an acute attack, and may shrink cancerous tumors. Children with drug-resistant epilepsy sometimes respond to an extremely low carbohydrate ketogenic diet.”
The effects talk for themselves…
Dr. Newport began implementing a dose of coconut oil to her man, Steve every day.
After 2 months, she remembers that Steve was bright and happy, chattering and kidding, and the trembling he’d been continuously expanding was less obvious. His overall health and concentration levels progressed dramatically.
To reassure that ketone bodies aren’t distributed and are not circulating, her husband still takes around 2 tablespoons of coconut oil two times a day.
She is amazed by the results and improvements of her husband’s mind and brain. She sais that he is now a different person.
She adds, “For now, we are very pleased with where he is at and should coconut oil stop or slow down the progress of his disease, it will be worth every drop that he takes.”
