First of all, I make no health claims and I am just talking about research about coconut oil available on-line. I found an article about the ketones in Coconut Oil. It is touted by Dr. Mary Newport about the effects it had on her husband’s degenerative neurological disease and I am fascinated. Her husband had symptoms of Alzheimer’s and mine has the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. It seems that ketones in Virgin Coconut Oil may allow the of glucose in the neurological centers of the brain to be absorbed. (At least that is what I think she said.) Could this be a wonderful health secret for many diseases and symptoms?
Joe and I will be trying this out and following the protocol that Dr Mary Newport describes in her article, ‘What if there were a cure for Alzheimer’s and no one knew.” Coconut Oil our new favorite food. She also recommends using coconut milk for cereal and other places you might want to use milk. So many wonderful ideas.
Other related diseases mentioned in the article include Huntington’s chorea, multiple sclerosis, ALS, type I and type II diabetes, as well as any number of other conditions that involve a defect in transport of glucose into neurons and other cells. On the video (link follows), she speaks of possible applications for newborns as well. I hope she is right.
Big Pharma will never pick this up as they cannot patent food.
The links to the information are at the bottom of the page!!
Only use organic Virgin or Expeller Pressed coconut oil. Quality matters.
I found this cool recipe:
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup nut or seed butter (I use peanut butter, unsweetened)
- 1/4 cup (generous) cocoa powder
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup (generous) coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup raw honey
Mix together all ingredients. Pour on a piece of unbleached parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Spread out to about 1/4″ thick.
Place fudge in freezer. Let set for about 30 minutes.
Break into pieces and serve or put in container back in freezer until you are ready to serve.
