News here in 2014 is reporting that two more Alzheimer drugs have failed during drug trials. Alzheimer's Disease represents a huge market for pharmaceutical companies, as millions of people are suffering from the disease, and the rate is increasing rapidly. Many pharmaceutical companies are trying to develop Alzheimer's drugs and vaccines. However, if we are to truly understand the Alzheimer's epidemic, we need to stop viewing senior citizens as a lucrative market for pharmaceutical products. The most successful drug of all time, Lipitor, is a cholesterol-lowering drug aimed at seniors that at one time out sold all other drugs combined. It is estimated that today one out every four Americans over the age of 55 is now taking statin drugs to artificially lower their body's cholesterol. Unfortunately, there is research pointing to a lack of cholesterol uptake to the brain as being associated with Alzheimer's patients. Therefore, poor dietary advice and excessive pharmaceutical drugs must be considered as a primary cause of Alzheimer's Disease. All across the globe, people are starting to use coconut oil to treat Alzheimer's Disease, and the results have been nothing less than remarkable. In this report we take a look at some of these stories, as well as looking at research linking the high-fat ketogenic diet to curing many diseases such as Alzheimer's.
I’ve been using coconut oil for over a year now and am very pleased to be myself again. The fog is gone and I’m able to drive safely again. I’ve been able to resume my hobbies: knitting and crochet as well.
Rather than study the dietary effects of coconut oil, or the ketogenic diet, on neuro-degenerative diseases, this was actually an in vitro study that examined “rodent cortical neurons exposed to AB peptide” and virgin coconut oil, most likely in a petri dish or beaker, inside of a laboratory.
The University of South Florida’s Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute has decided to research coconut oil and Alzheimer’s Disease. The funding reportedly came from a private foundation, as there is no interest in researching this inside the medical system.
My mother was going to start on Aricept. I recommended 2 tablespoons a day of coconut oil. In 5 days her memory was getting better and she could keep a conversation, finishing sentences.
"After a few weeks of gradually increasing her coconut oil intake and working up to 3 TBS daily, Grandma had improved even beyond where she was when she first came to live with Mom."
University of South Florida Byrd Institute to Conduct Clinical Trials on Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s
The University of South Florida Health Byrd Alzheimer's Institute has announced that they will conduct an 8-month pilot study investigating coconut oil for individuals with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease.
In this video report Steve in Sydney describes how coconut oil reversed dementia in his 85 year old father in only 35 days.
“I lost my dad to Alzheimer’s five years ago and I thought I would never get him back,” said Rashi. “But somehow I have, and it’s the most amazing thing.
A growing body of research suggests there may be a powerful connection between the foods you eat and your risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia, via similar pathways that cause type 2 diabetes. Some have re-named Alzheimer’s as “type 3 diabetes.”
