Man Eats 2 Tbs of Coconut Oil Twice a Day for 60 Days and This Happens to His Brain!

If what I'm about to say is valid, it could be the prime rib of natural health discoveries in history. 

Dr. Mary Newport has theorized that ketone bodies (our bodies make this when digesting coconut oil), could be an alternative source of fuel for our brain. Dr. Newport believes that coconut oil could be beneficial in the fight against Alzheimer’s. 

The Backstory

Dr. Newport’s husband, Steve, suffered from progressive dementia for 5 years in his mid-50’s, and a MRI supported the clinical diagnosis for Alzheimer’s. She explains her story in a case study: “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.”

Her husband had short-term memory loss, even though information was processed and filed in the brain. She began to think harder into his case and had a feeling his diet could be the problem. Steve ended up taking medication to hinder its progression, but only made him lose weight, become depressed and forgot how to do simple addition, cooking and using a calculator. He lost memory of how to perform simple tasks and would do yard work and stay in a healthy, physical condition.

Finding Hope

Dr. Newport was intrigued when she read on a few studies that studied the potential for use of ketone Bodis or medium chain triglycerides to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s. Medium chain triglycerides could possibly be used to treat Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, drug resistant epilepsy. Dr. Newport emphasizes that,“Ketone bodies may help the brain recover after a loss of oxygen in newborns through adults, may help the heart recover after an acute attack, and may shrink cancerous tumors. 

Children with drug resistant epilepsy sometimes respond to an extremely low carbohydrate ketogenic diet.” The body’s cells could possibly utilize ketone bodies when glucose is unavailable to fuel the brain. Ketone bodies don’t circulate through the body unless it has been starving for a few days, or if your on a very low-carb diet, such as Atkins. Dr. Newport explains, “In Alzheimer’s disease, the neurons in certain areas of the brain are unable to take in glucose due to insulin resistance, and slowly die off… if these cells had access to ketone bodies, they could potentially stay alive and continue to function.”

The Results

Dr. Newport then began to give her husband 2 tablespoons of coconut oil daily for 60 days. She says that Steve became much more alert, sociable, happy and had less tremors. Steve was able to prioritize and concentrate on one task at a time without being distracted. He took 2 tbsp of coconut oil twice a day to ensure no time foe ketone bodies to not travel through he body. 

After one year of treatment, Dr. Newport’s husband is different from who he used to be. She says he still has some difficulty choosing words and still was able to recognize family, and was active in conversations with a lively face. She says,“For now, we are very pleased with where he is at and should coconut oil stop or slow down the progress of his disease, it will be worth every drop that he takes.”
