Coconut Oil

Health Impact News Editor Comments

The National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon is teaming up with a local hospital to study the effects of the low-carb high-fat ketogenic diet on Parkinson’s patients. We have reported in the past how Parkinson’s sufferers have experienced relief when consuming large amounts of coconut oil (see: Parkinson’s Sufferers Find Relief and Improved Life After Starting Coconut Oil).

The ketogenic diet was originally developed at John Hopkins Hospital in the 1930s as a diet-based cure for epilepsy and seizures in children, where pharmaceutical drugs did not work. In recent years the strict diet has been studied for many other neurological diseases, as well as cancer.

The Portland Business Journal is reporting that Legacy Health and the National College of Natural Medicine are recruiting 12 participants with Parkinson’s with a goal of starting the 12-week trial in early January. Read more here.
