Dr. Mary Newport, desperate after orthodox medical attempts failed her husband’s dwindling dysfunction from Alzheimer’s, discovered coconut oil and rescued him from having to be put away in a special home.
His remarkable recovery went viral on the internet and Dr. Newport wrote a 2011-12 bestseller, Alzheimer’s Disease: What if There Was a Cure?
However successful those reports were, mainstream medicine wasn’t recognizing coconut oil as an efficacious aid for Alzheimer’s or any type of dementia. Even the Alzheimer’s Association and other similar groups still won’t recommend or mention coconut oil to Alzheimer’s sufferers simply because there are no peer reviewed studies.But somehow, a recent peer reviewed study has been completed and published with another in progress with positive results.
COCONUT OIL: NON-ALTERNATIVE DRUG TREATMENT AGAINST ALZHEIMER´S DISEASE(PUBLISHED DECEMBER 1, 2015 BY NUTRICION HOSPITALARIA)
This clinical trial was conducted in Spain, which explains why the study was done to begin with. Spain and other EU nations and middle eastern nations, including Israel, seem less restricted with what they can study without pharmaceutical funding. Spain and Israel have done considerable research and human studies on cannabis’ medical applications, for example.
They used cognitive testing before and after the clinical trial to determine changes. The intervention group was fed 40 ml of coconut oil daily, which comes to 2.7 tablespoons. Three tablespoons or more daily is recommended by experts, depending on dementia severity and coconut oil digestive tolerance.
The researchers noted “a statistically significant increase in test score … and therefore an improvement in cognitive status, improving especially women’s, those without diabetes mellitus type II, and severe patients.”
