I cut back the carbs in my diet and added 4-7 tablespoons of coconut oil into my diet. After a week I noticed that using the Nintendo Brain Trainer my memory test score showed my highest score ever - a 20% improvement on previous measurements. My brain feels clearer and I feel less spaced out.
This is a really important work and I wish I'd come across it before my dad, who had Alzheimer's, died.
It's becoming so clear that so much illness can be resolved just by improving your diet. People do not grow healthy and strong eating pizza, pasta and Cola. Including essential fats (coconut oil and fish oil) and several portions of green vegetables daily, and cutting out sugar and trans fats can make a big difference to your health.
The long held truth that low fat is the way to health is now being found to be completely incorrect. Your brain is made of fat and the sheaths that surround your nerves are made of fat, and if you're not eating any fat, how can they be repaired!! The wrong fats have given the good fats a bad press. Margarines, transfats and hydrogenated oils are all bad - which is why manufacturers are now removing them from products. Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil is good, but most other vegetable oils are very processed and not good for your health.
There is a belief that coconut oil is bad for you - but again this is an outdated information that has been proven incorrect. The medical profession know this as premature babies are fed on supplements made from coconut oil and so are patients in intensive care unit who can't eat.
Do your own research into fats and health and you'll find that a lot of what you believed to be true has been proven wrong. The new paradigm is that too many carbohydrates and particularly too much refined sugar, or refined flour, is the reason for the increase in illhealth that we see around us. A diet full of fresh food - lots of portions of vegetables and fruits is the way to go for improvement in health.
Newport, Mary T. (2011-10-31). Alzheimer's Disease: What If There Was a Cure? (Kindle Locations 36-37). Basic Health Publications, Inc.. Kindle Edition.
Dr. Newport's book has stimulated new research at USF College of Medicine and USF Byrd Alzheimer's Institute on the potential for coconut oil, ketogenic diets and ketone esters in the treatment and prevention of neurological disorders and cancer.
This book is very engaging and informative. It is a personal story describing a very simple approach to treating Alzheimer's disease. The second half of the book is an in depth discussion of the therapeutic potential for ketones and Ketone Esters. The work of Dr, Richard Veech (NIH) is highlighted throughout the book. Dr. Veech is the leading expert on developing ketone esters, however, his lab is in need of funding to make this potential therapy a reality.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in a simple way to treat and possible delay the onset of Alzheimer's disease. This book is a valuable resource for anyone caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease
