 Alzheimer's Disease: What If There Was a Cure? by Mary T. Newport
Alzheimer’s Association Warns Against Coconut Oil – Member Replies “Coconut Oil Gave us our Father Back!”
[2008 pdf] WHAT IF THERE WAS A CURE FOR ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AND NO ONE KNEW? A Case Study by Dr. Mary Newport If you are using any type of hydrogenated vegetable oil or any oil with transfat, do not use any more and get rid of it! Extra virgin olive oil, butter and other natural, non-hydrogenated oils are okay to use along with the coconut oil. It is possible to use coconut oil in place of all other oils, however, since it contains no omega-3 fatty acids, it is very important to eat salmon twice a week or get enough omega-3 fatty acid from other rich sources such as fish oil capsules, flax meal, flax oil (not for cooking) or walnuts. It is inconceivable that a potential dietary prevention and cure for Alzheimer’s disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases, has been out there for so many years, and yet has gone unnoticed.

I am sole caregiver for my 88 yr old mother with severe Alzheimer. I cook with it, pour it over oatmeal, in sauces, even spread it on her toast before the butter goes on. Her memory was retested and improved, she sleeps better, and her moods are not as violent. I eat everything she does and find even my moods no longer swing as high and low as before. Neither of us has weight, sugar or cholesterol problems. Have yet to find a down side to using nonhydrogentated coconut oil.

I’ve been using coconut oil for over a year. I was overweight, struggling with internment bleeding ulcers, chronic iron deficiency causing extreme fatigue and requiring iron infusions every couple of months along with frequent bouts of diverticulitis. I am now at a healthy weight, no longer need iron infusions, increased energy, no longer need ulcer medications. My blood test show no longer indicate any issues. I use 2 TBS a day also changed my slowly changed my diet avoiding processed food and just generally eating healthy. True believer.

I love taking the coconut oil for my seizure. Ever since I started taking 5 teaspoons a day for about a month my seizure stopped. I stopped taking my medicine before I new anything about the coconut oil. The medicine I was taking did not help me. Coconut oil is my life.

I am 81 years old and have Alzheimer’s, diabetes and just about every other old age ailment known to man. Week 1. Felt more alert and energetic things got better, then reached a plateau. I slacked off and began to over eat etc. This week I got serious again and have started to feel better after three days. I am able to think more clearly again. I wish I had learned of the miraculous coconut before. It’s inexpensive and works better than advertised.

I’m eating extra virgin coconut oil for Parkinson’s,(3 tablespoons per day). I experienced improvement in my ability to eat with my right hand 2 hours after eating 1st tablespoon of coconut oil, since then my dry eye condition is gone. plus brain fog is gone which is a part of Parkinson’s!!

I’ve been using coconut oil for a while as a lotion on my severely dry skin. It’s fantastic-after a while I don’t even have to apply every day-skin maintains softness. I started taking internally for fibromyalgia. Gives me more energy and helps with brain fog. Have also recently started oil pulling and my teeth look amazing. They are whiter, no gum bleeding, clean and shiny-even if I don’t brush. Highly recommend!

Coconut Oil is quite a miracle in and of itself. I find it comical that this WebMD article actually states, “However, research on the effects of these types of fats in the body is very preliminary.” There are years of research and findings to prove the positive effects and miracle-like cures of coconut oil. But Big Pharma can’t seem to profit from it, so it’s deemed “very preliminary.” Try Coconut Oil for yourself; that’s all the research you’ll need.

I have been using coconut oil (approx. 1 or 2 Tbs.) on popcorn about 4 or 5 nights a week for a six months or so. I just had blood work done and my triglycerides had dropped from over 800 to 209. My total cholesterol had dropped from between 350 -400, when it could be measured, to 179. Total cholesterol has never been this low and the coconut oil is the only thing I have changed in my normal diet.

From a comment of Celia Horne about using coconut oil for
her aunt's dementia:
She started decompensating, so her doctor put her on meds for dementia. She would have terrible nightmares from the meds. her doctor said that was a good sign that the meds were stimulating her brain. She said, "I'm 88, I don't need that kind of stimulation."
I had read that coconut oil helps memory, so I started her on 1 teaspoon a day in her oatmeal. When Superstorm Sandy hit, we only had three days of meds left. Her appt.was for that day. I doubled her coconut oil and that was the end of the meds.
This past April, she broke her hip. The nurses kept asking me what I gave her. I kept telling them that she didn't take anything, except coconut oil. Most of the nurses are from the Philippines, and they were raised on it. They were shocked at her health and mental clarity. When she was in the rehab, one of the nurses said the doctor had to approve it. I told her that we were keeping her on it because I had already been on the crazy train with her; and I wasn't going back so big pharma could make a few dollars. That shut her up.
I'm reading The Coconut Oil Miracle book by Bruce Fife. Years ago, the tropical oils were used in everything. Then along came the soybean lobbyists and their lies about coconut and other tropical oils. The food industry switched to soybean and corn oil; and we know who hijacked the soybean and corn market. It's all GMO's.
The Pacific Islanders have a very low rate of dementia, heart disease, etc because they were raised on coconut oil. Coconut oil actually protects the body from plaque in the arteries, and the production of free radicals. Free radicals are renegade cells that attack other cells, and greatly contribute to organ damage/failure, aging, disease and death. The bottom line is coconut oil is one of the best things that one can ingest. Canola oil...UGH! Yet we were led to believe that it was good for us. Olive oil can be harmful. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is cold pressed; and that is heart healthy. Coconut oil is the best. I haven't even read the recipes yet. You can buy it at health food stores but I get it online @ vitacost.com 54 oz for $22 You can cook with it (medium heat), or mix it in food, cereals, shakes, etc. I tell everyone that it will help with dementia/alzheimers. I have never seen anyone with meds get better, or any proof that the meds slowed down the disease. But I have witnessed it reverse my aunt's. She knits baby sweaters and blankets, reads 2-3 books per week, and does puzzles.
