4 Doctors on Coconut Oil & Alzheimer's

VIDEO

See a panel of doctors discuss why they recommend coconut oil for an Alzheimer's & dementia diet.



To get started with adding coconut oil to your diet, check out:
20 Ways to Mix Coconut Oil into a Dementia Diet.

To understand why this diet works, read:
The Coconut-Oil-Dementia Diet
Dr. Anderson advocates coconut oil for his nursing home's dementia diet.

He explores 3 benefits:
  1. Coconut oil is rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT). The liver quickly converts MCTs to ketones, providing a quick "backup fuel" to the brain. This can be helpful in dementia, where the brain often suffers from a lack of energy from its regular "fuel", glucose.
  2. Coconut oil offers a low-carb solution to insulin resistance from diabetes. (Type-2 diabetes is common in seniors with dementia. In addition, Alzheimer's is sometimes called Type-3 diabetes.)
  3. Dr. Anderson sees this improving the problems of:
    • Agitation
    • Behavior
    • Polypharmacology (Too many pills).
Watch this panel of doctors share their experiences.

  1. It is not clear from the discusion whether cocanut oil should be consumed with a normal carbohydrate diet or low carb. diet in order to reap the benfits

  2. Anyone who believes that a low carb diet is healthful will be interested in reading about research involving the "whole plant diet," meaning not whole wheat or other grain flour, nor hulled grain, but whole grains. Thus "oat" means oat groats, "wheat" means wheat berries, etc. Considering the benefits of a high carb diet based on potatoes, flour, fruit juice, vegetable juice, etc. is misleading. Diabetic patients who ate a whole plant diet and zero dairy or meat of any sort showed remarkable healing. The book I recommend concerning nutritional effects on "diseases of affluence" is written for lay people, and is well cited for those who wish to delve more deeply into the author's research and that of others: "The China Study" by T. Collin Campbell. In part 4 of the book, he gets into the economic reasons in the U.S. why certain individuals and organizations have sought to suppress the data or influence policy regarding school lunch programs, etc. Wikipedia has an excellent article on the book.

  3. There is a serious study going on at the Institute of Alzehimer os the University of South Florida. This is not a fad.

  4. The University of South Florida clinical trial -- a tiny, single-site Phase II study -- is testing beverage called "Fuel for Thought(TM)", sold commercially by Cognate Nutritionals, which is described as a "proprietary blend of coconut and medium chain triglyceride oils" that also contains "natural fruit and berry extracts".

    There is far more reason to believe that MCT oil might be effective than there is reason to believe coconut oil by itself is beneficial.

    Using a mixture containing MCT oils plus other nutritional supplements indicates the University isn't all that confident about coconut oil by itself. And I'm having considerable difficulty finding out who is funding the trial.

    1. Of course if the over the counter stuff can help people it will drive the medical industrial complex into a tizzy!And they and their agents will work overtime to undermine it
