Coconut Oil For Alzheimers

My Story

Alzheimer's Disease is very scary to think about especially when you watched your grandmother die from it at a young age. At the time, I was about 13 years old and I really didn't fully understand what was happening except that Grammy was very forgetful and repeated a lot of what she had just said. Now, although Grammy's been gone for a long time, I still think about her and those difficult times when she was suffering from this horrible disease.

Today

You hear about it in the news often and how it's still affecting so many people. There was even a book and then a movie about Alzheimer's Disease based on a true story, "The Notebook". This is a beautiful movie about a woman suffering with this disease and her husband desperately trying to help her remember. This movie is so beautiful and a sure tearjerker. I often think about my Grandmother and wish she didn't have to go through that, but back in the 80's and like today, there was no cure.

Coconut Oil For Alzheimers

I have discovered the many benefits of organic coconut oil with one of them being how it helps with Alzheimer's Disease, which is the most common form of dementia. I would truly love to be able to get the message out there that this miracle oil may be able to help with the symptoms. It's all natural, cost effective, and if the risks are low, then why not try it? It's always important to contact your doctor before introducing to your body something new in the form of an alternative therapy.

The Proof

Dr. Mary T. Newport wrote a book out of her own experience in watching her husband suffer with the disease. She discovered in her extensive research that ketones may be able to help with neurological disorders including Alzheimer's Disease. This disease is caused by the brain's decline in metabolizing glucose. She found that a promising approach to treating the disease is to supplement the glucose supply with ketone bodies. We get these ketones from organic coconut oil.

Get Educated

I'm 38 years old and a day doesn't go by when I don't think about my Grandmother. Her illness and passing due to Alzheimer's Disease had a huge impact on me. Now, I am taking preventive measures for myself by including organic coconut oil for Alzheimers in my diet. The information in Dr. Mary T. Newport's book focuses on how ketones play a big part in the treatment for the disease. This book is a good place to start in educating yourself about the benefits of organic coconut oil for this debilitating disease affecting so many.
