Coconut Oil And Alzheimer’s

      169 Comments on Coconut Oil And Alzheimer’s

Some of you may have heard Jimmy Moore’s interview with Dr. Mary Newport, who halted and partially reversed her husband’s Alzheimer’s disease by feeding him coconut oil.  My mom just sent me a newsclip that gives a brief version of the same story:

We tried giving coconut oil to my dad, but he was too far gone.  If only I’d known 10 years ago what  I know now, Dad and I might still be enjoying playing golf together.

Ketones have been shown to help with Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, and other brain issues … yet your average nutritionist will still tell people to avoid ketogenic diets in general and coconut oil specifically.   Too much saturated fat, doncha know.  Eat your grains and cook with canola oil.

That’s why the average nutritionist is a menace.

    “That’s why the average nutritionist is a menace.”

    Wrong. That’s why people like you, who feed the public imaginary “nutritional facts” are a menace.

    You speak based on what you think, not what you have learned through education.

    You also sell goods based on what you think, not what you have learned through education.

    Your T shirt, Wheat is murder, is a prime example of your ignorance. It’s also an insult to people who know what proper grains to eat for good health.

    For someone who seems to think he’s in the know, you know very little. Halychanka (Red Fife) wheat, is a grain/wheat that’s good for you, it is not a grain/wheat that will murder you. Do some freaking research.

    It’s said, “There’s a fool born every minute”. Just reading the comments made on this page, proves that is true..

    The fools are actually believing your garbage stories on nutrition. The same fools are filling your pockets with their cash, buying your deceptive goods.

    Isn’t that ducky. One more scammer to add to the list of the many scammers out there, who take advantage of the gullible, whatever way they can.

    Nice going fathead. Your name suits you well.

    Glad to see the nutritionists weighing in to defend the crap they promote.

    There is no dietary requirement for grains. Some are more or less damaging than others, but none are required for good health. And yes, the advice I give is based on education. I read books and studies constantly, listen to interviews with doctors and researchers constantly, attend lectures several times per year. What I didn’t do was get a degree in nutrition by listening to other nutritionists parrot the same crap they were taught with no science to back it up.

        Grains actually are not necessary to health. I used to believe the hype about the benefits of including wheat and “whole wheat” in the diet. My health improved greatly when I eliminated them from my diet.

    Interested to hear some first hand anecdotes about coconut oil use. The fact is that big pharmaceuticals will never release favorable data about this food, there is no profit in it. Their kickbacks to government will see to it that any major studies will be low profile.

    So as so often we must be our own guinea pigs and piece together the facts from experience, anecdotes and what little information is available from research.

    I’m sorry the nutritionist was upset, but the kind of ignorance they suffer from is hard to cure. They are taught a course o half truths and dogma. This is sad because when they sign up for the course it is out of a desire to do good. It is tough to realize that the course was designed to steer them away from nutritional information that might cause them to question the use of certain drugs.

    1. Demonizing saturated animal fats
    2. Consumption of grains that are not soaked or sprouted.
    3. Little knowledge of the benefits of lacto-fermentation
    4. The great Cholesterol lie
    5. Promotion of vegetable oils

    All myths perpetuated so that big food corporations can sell commodities with maximum markup.

    I try not to be hostile to doctors and nutritionists. They are usually good people who like the rest of us have been mislead.

    Does coconut milk have the same effect as coconut oil? I have been giving that to my mother and it seems to help. But it may simply be the TLC and Reiki that she is responding to.

    Coconut oil would deliver more concentrated MCTs.

    Awww… thank you for sharing your story. I was really touched. My mom and dad are actually on their senior age right now and they talk about a lot of body pains and all. Sometimes they suffer from memory gap which I think is usual when you’re getting older. But thanks for letting me know that coconut oil can be useful for Alzheimer’s. I might just add it to my mom and dad’s diet. After all I’ve been using coconut from this site http://products.mercola.com/coconut-oil/ for my skin and hair for more than a couple of years now.

    I am not saying that coconut oil will help others but I pray that it does. It is natural and nothing in it to harm anyone. I am only stating what results that I and my brother in law have had.
    My brother in law, suffers from mild dementia and has had serious issues with psorriasis. He has been taking three TBS a day for nearly 8 months and has much improvement in mental acuity and physical mobility as well as experiencing freedom from symptoms of psorriais.
    I started taking it and my sleep has improved. My skin is softer as well but in all honesty, I started drinking a much more hydrating water…Not sure at this point which did the skin softening…the water or the oil. The blessing in all this is that these are NOT bad chemicals and should not hurt anyone in any way.

    Im addicted to Artisana raw 100% organic Coconut Butter– Whole coconut flesh.
    It claims to have everything-not just oil. Is it as potent as the oil alone and will
    it produce same benifits — as in ALZ treatment?

    The coconut oil will have more medium-chain triglycerides, which is what provides the benefit.

    Take the coconut oil on your finger and put on your acne as many times a day as you can,
    it may take around one week to get rid of your acne.
    If you want to learn more about organic moroccan oil for hair, take a
    look at. The most natural moisturizing ingredient out there is plain water.
