    An unconventional resource in treating Alzheimer’s…..

    I’ve also started my dad on coconut oil again. I lost my Mother to
    Alzhemier’s disease. It’s a terrible illness, one loses their loved one
    twice. There are no real effective, long last treatments for Alzheimers and
    other forms of dementia. We have nothing to lose by trying coconut oil. I’m
    grateful for Dr. Newport for providing this information. Thank you, Mary
    Newport. <3?

  • Gwenn Love says:

    It may or may not help, but… you have nothing to loose by trying it.?

  • N.R Dewi Nurmayani says:

    When Dr. Newport’s husband Steven was diagnosed with early onset
    Alzheimer’s, as a Doctor herself, she explored routine treatment options.
    But when his symptoms became so severe that he was not able to participate
    in clinical trials, her scientific deductions led to coconut oil, which has
    led to amazing results.

    Mary T. Newport, M.D. grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and was educated at
    Xavier University and University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. She is
    board certified in pediatrics and neonatology, training at Children’s
    Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, and Medical University Hospital in
    Charleston, SC. She is founding director of the newborn intensive care unit
    at Spring Hill Regional Hospital, practicing full-time through All
    Children’s Specialty Physicians and volunteer clinical faculty at
    University of South Florida. She was also founding director of the neonatal
    intensive Care unit at Mease Hospital Dunedin.?

    Know any weed growers? Ask them for 4 or 5 MATURE leaves a day from the
    vegetative stage of their crop. These leaves are not used by the stoners
    because they contain very little THC. Make a cold smoothie out of them but
    DO NOT allow any heat because this will change the compounds. Raw unheated
    leaves have no psychotropic effect. I am not a doctor but I have seen this
    help. Ref, DR. WILLIAM COURTNEY. You will need to read his stuff because I
    don’t thinks it’s mentioned in Youtube.

  • Krishna Jeena says:

    I love coconuts in any form….just worried about weight gain for over
    consumption, so glad to discover how good they are…hugely appreciate your
    presentation and many thanks for spreading the wondrous
    information…thumbs up!!

  • firebytheocean says:

    Thank you so much my mother was just admitted to a nursing home at age 72
    and I so hope that this could improve her quality of life even if it is
    just a little it would be such a wonderful relief for me and my family.

  • Playboysmurf1 says:

    I really wish this would work, however it appears to not work for my mum.
    Using both Coconut oil and MCT.

  • Azamat Bagatov says:

    For the first time the drug delevoping companyes came with a real solution
    to alzheimers…/watch?v=-6iR-R8kZfk

  • Azamat Bagatov says:

    have you tried it? any results ? Thank you …

  • MacGamut15 says:

    Coconut oil is not a whole food. It has to be extracted from coconut meat,
    which is a whole food. Dr. Newport’s story amounts to nothing more than an
    anecdote. There are no clinical trials which I’m aware of showing coconut
    oil to be beneficial for Alzheimer’s, meaning she has no business shouting
    it from the rooftops as a cure for that disease at this point.

  • Azamat Bagatov says:

    just look here In 2012 it was announced in an epub ahead of print[5] that
    researchers had discovered that bexarotene reduced amyloid plaque and
    improved mental functioning in a small sample of mice engineered to exhibit
    Alzheimer’s symptoms. It is thought that bexarotene stimulates expression
    of apolipoprotein E (ApoE), which leads to intracellular clearance of
    ?-Amyloid.”We’ve fixed Alzheimer’s in mice lots of times, so we need to
    move forward…

  • Claudia M says:

    Dr Newport, I am from Argentina and here there is no cooconut oil as in
    usa, then I decided to make it at home and found the way to do it in
    internet, it is cooking the coconut milk to get the oil, it is ok to do it
    this way? It is posible to use striped dehydrated coconut to make it? Also
    I would like to know if it is good to eat coconut or drink its water or
    ketones are only obtained from the oil? Thank you very much Dr Newport for
    all you have done to help to fight with this terrible disease

  • greasemonkey1228 says:

    Coconut oil is a whole food, not just a single active ingredient. We don’t
    know precisely how this food interacts with itself in the body. When we
    isolate what we assume to be the active ingredient, synergistic effects
    might be dulled or lost. Dr. Newport fed her husband the whole food, as
    well as MCT oil at the same time, confounding our ability to narrow down
    what caused her husband’s improvements. But, obviously he did improve. It’s
    a result worth noting and building upon.

  • Azamat Bagatov says:

    yes , she has been taking targretin since september 2012, she has had the
    deseaase for 10 years now.noticed a huge improuvement the first 2 days
    after administration of the first dose… She would not have been alive
    today without this bexarotene drug , i am very happy to say she is maybe
    the first person in the world who has been cured…

  • Donna Merrill says:

    Thank you Dr. Newport for doing this treatment and showing us how effective
    coconut oil works. I especially paid attention to this because of your
    reputation as a doctor. This really “sold” me on using this. I will share
    this to the many people I know that have people dealing with this issue.

  • MacGamut15 says:

    The active ingredient of coconut oil was subjected to a randomized
    controlled trial and failed to reverse Alzheimer’s. watch?v=DQqBh0jcA5s
