Mary Newport, M.D. was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, graduated from Xavier University (humanities and pre-medicine) and University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. She trained in pediatrics at Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, and in neonatology at the Medical University Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina, and is board certified in pediatrics and neonatology, the care of sick and premature newborns. She practiced neonatology for thirty years and was founding medical director for two newborn intensive care units in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. More recently, she practiced at the opposite end of the spectrum, providing hospice care, and, more recently, health risk assessments. In 2008, she implemented a ketogenic nutritional intervention with coconut and medium-chain triglyceride oil that dramatically helped her husband Steve Newport, who had early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. In 2010, she guided her husband through the first pilot study of the betahydroxybutyrate/butanediol ketone ester in a person with Alzheimer’s and co-authored a case report published in Alzheimer’s and Dementia in 2015 with Dr. Richard Veech and others. Her husband lost his battle with Alzheimer’s and Lewy Body dementia in 2016 and Dr. Newport carries on his legacy as an author of three books and international speaker on ketones as an alternative fuel for the brain. Dr. Newport is a Certified Ketogenic Nutrition Specialist through the American Society of Nutrition. Her fourth book (available November 2022), Clearly Keto for Healthy Brain Aging and Alzheimer’s Prevention, focuses on a whole food ketogenic Mediterranean-style diet, ketogenic strategies, and other lifestyle modifications to help prevent or slow down progression of Alzheimer’s and other neurological conditions. Her previous books are The Complete Book of Ketones: A Practical Guide to Ketogenic Diets and Ketone Supplements (2019), The Coconut Oil and Low Carb Solution for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Other Diseases (2015), and Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was a Cure? The Story of Ketones (3rd edition coming September 2023. For more information, Dr. Newport’s website is https://coconutketones.com.
