Dr. Mary Newport takes us through the journey of her late husband, Steve Newport. She talks to us about the early onset of Dementia, through his Alzheimer’s diagnosis and how her research to help him, lead her to the astounding benefits MCT oil and coconut oil on the brain. You’ll want to listen in to learn the impact the consumption of coconut oil had on Steve’s disease overnight and within a 2 month span, prolonging his life by several years. The Alzheimer’s Association states that Alzheimer’s is the only cause of death in the US in the top 10 that cannot be prevented, cured or slow downed. But can coconut oil defy that notion? Listen in and tell us what you think.
Dr. Newport goes into detail explaining that MCT oil is extracted usually from coconut oil and when consumed is converted into ketones, providing alternate fuel to the brain. Alzheimer’s disease is diabetes of the brain, meaning that there is decreased glucose uptake to the brain. This is where ketones play a big role in preventing and reversing the effects of Alzheimer’s, now being called Type 3 Diabetes and diabetes of the brain.
To see Steve’s Clock Test referred to in the podcast episode go to www.coconutketones.com. It’s right on the home page. You’ll see the clock Steve drew on day 1 before coconut oil, the clock he drew after 14 days of starting on coconut oil and after 2 months…the results are truly amazing!
“Studies show that type 2 diabetics can go into remission and get off their diabetes meds by reducing carb intake. Since Alzheimer’s is a type of diabetes of the brain, reducing carbs could help this as well.”
Dr. Newport’s recommendation for taking coconut oil:
- Start slowly. Take 1/2 to 1 tsp of coconut oil with food, 2-3 times a day.
- Increase by 1/2 tsp every 2-3 days.
- Build up to 4-6 tbsps a day.
- Cut out carbs
- Substitute coconut oil in equal parts for other sources of fats (olive oil, butter, creamer, salad dressings, etc), or you will gain weight.
- With MCT oil, you’ll want to go even slower starting with 1/2 tsp twice a day.
- Her book, The Coconut Oil and Low-Carb Solution for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Other Diseases: A Guide to Using Diet and a High-Energy Food to Protect and Nourish the Brain provides more details and guidance with charts for building your own diet based on where your body is. She goes over how much protein and carbs your own body needs rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. She also provides answers to a multitude of questions.
