Steve, her husband had the dementia 5 years before the bad MRI with Alzheimer’s result. This was a really bad stage for him and his shape.
He was confused and defocused and couldn’t even handle cutlery like forks and spoons. And he couldn’t take food of the fridge too! He would forget to give messages to his wife and then remember them few days later…
His parietal and frontal lobes and hippocampus too (and amygdala as well) were really atrophied and damaged a lot. His short term memory as gone and he would create new info in his brain later after some days. Than his wife decided to pay attention to his diet.
He had therapy meds from the doctors but with no result. He was too slim and skinny and had depression as well. His motion got restricted and he had many tremors too. Then his wife searched for other options too for his diet changes.
The drug she discovered was Ketasyn AC 1202 which stopped the Alzheimer’s stages in just 3 months after taking. She examined this and said the main item in this medicine was triglyceride oil. And that meant coconut oil, so she bought it from the health store.
She fed her husband coconut 2 spoons full everyday 2 times per day. 2 months passed and the tremors were removed and after a whole year he recognized faces and even spoke with the family. He went into nature and walked freely on the streets. It was amazing that he read again and improved each day.
She swore by the coconut oil benefit for this improvement.
HOW IS COCONUT GOD FOR THIS ISSUE?
The brain needs food before all else and 60% of glucose of food goes to the brain.
However, the brain does not get every part of the glucose it needs due to hypometabolism or bad cognition work. The byproducts or ketones of fat breakdown are a good option for the brain. They nourish the neurons and nerves after some brain damage.
Some neurons do not absorb the glucose due to resistance to insulin. But ketones could save those cells.
Ketones show after some starvation time but also MCTs when exposed to oxygen together with the liver make more and more ketones. 97% of fats we ingest are long chain triglyceride and have the 18 carbons. A medium chain is of 6-12 carbons.
For Parkinson’s the coconut is also an option, also for drug related epilepsy and diabetes, and even multiple sclerosis.
IF YOU NEED MORE EVIDENCE…
In 2004 a study of the Neurobiology of Aging said the coconut oil makes cognition better and memory improved too. In that study 20 people were involved and they received pacebos and coconut too. After hour and a half, those with coconut stated to have more beta-hydroxybutyrate beta OHB, the most powerful ketone.
They all fasted and ‘starved’ before the experiment and blood testing. Then after 90 min of the coconut method and the cognition test, again. 40 ml was the average dose.
Dr. Mercola stated how Dr. David Perlmutter a good neurologist, claimed avoidance of fat and ingesting loads of carbs is the culprit of the Alzheimer’s and the lifestyle.
Both agreed on fasting as good method and combined with coconut too, to increase more glycogen in the liver. That also removes extra fat deposits and you get to the keto stage easily. This means easy and healthy weight loss and healthier brain, but there is a hazard too. If the ketones are too high, blood acidity rises too and you have ketoacidosis that can be fatal even. Cut the sugars and gluten and keep the gut flora healthy.
