Letter to the Editor: Coconut oil and Alzheimer’s Disease

Editor,

I gave up my belief in miracles shortly after I began school. Too much evidence led me to my decision. For example, Santa’s handwriting was JUST like my mother’s. Often it took the Tooth Fairy more than a day to find the tooth I’d put under my pillow. BUT the other day I visited the health food store just above town and learned from the proprietor about a REAL miracle when I asked about one of his products – coconut oil.



He told me the story of Dr. Newport’s treatment for her husband who’d exhibited signs of Alzheimer’s disease in his early 50s. She began giving him doses of coconut oil in a variety of forms and likened her process to that of the athlete who builds up carbohydrates for competition.

All cells need sugars on a regular basis, but NOT all cells can process all sugar effectively. She recommended viewing Alzheimer’s as ‘diabetes of the brain’ and providing brain cells with sugar in a form they could metabolize, ergo – coconut oil.

For those who are more conversant in body chemistry than, I, I’ll recommend you ‘Google’ coconut oil and Alzheimer’s and select the option that includes Dr. Mary Newport. You will see the improvement her husband made in a very short time. You will also learn about many other health issues that are aided with coconut oil, i.e., obesity. I’ll let you know how I make out!
