Man Eats 2 Tbsp Of Coconut Oil Twice A Day For 60 Days And This Happens To His Brain!
The theory of Dr. Mary Newport, if accurate, may be among the biggest and most important health discoveries of all times.
She suggests that ketone bodies, which are formed when the body digests coconut oil, can serve as an alternative fuel for the brain. This oil is believed to offer essential benefits in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s. I
She had her own history with this condition, as her husband, Steve, suffered from progressive dementia for 5 years in his mid-50s, and then had an MRI which confirmed the clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.
In her case study, she told his story:
“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.”
She recounted that Steve had no short-term memory, but the information still existed somewhere in his brain, and she sensed that his diet was somehow related to the problem. Steve started taking medications to decelerate the development of the disease, but he became depressed, did not perform even the simplest tasks, lost weight, forgot how to cook and use a calculator.
Yet, he remained in a good condition and spent all day working in the garage and his yard.
Dr. Newport got interested in the findings of studies which stated that medium chain triglycerides or ketone bodies were able to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
Experts also regarded medium chain triglycerides as a potential treatment for diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, drug resistant epilepsy, and Huntington’s disease.
