It’s in the Diet Another potential way to reverse


Alzheimer’s dementia is with a ketogenic diet. The brain loves ketones, which are compounds created when body fat is broken down for energy. Coconut oil and MCT oil (medium chain triglyceride) increase the body’s production of ketones, as does a low-carb diet. There are numerous studies on the effects of ketones on the brain, but basically when the brain uses ketones, it produces 25 percent more energy than when it uses glucose. A ketone producing diet also results in a 39 percent increase in blood flow to the brain, and causes less plaque build-up. The way the ketone diet works is the


patient must first be placed on a very low- carbohydrate diet. Limit the carbs to no more than 20 gms per day at first. Mix three tsp of coconut oil with four tsps of MCT oil, give at every meal three times a day. You can mix 16 oz of MCT oil and 12 oz of coconut oil in a glass jar, and measure out the amount needed. Take it with food. It’s easiest to take if dissolved into something warm, such as hot water, coffee or tea. If you develop diarrhea or nausea, two side effects, then back off for a week or so and gradually work up to this dose. You should expect results within one to


two weeks of taking the full dose. Memory will dramatically improve, speech will normalize, even walking and physical activity may return to normal! Use only organic virgin coconut oil. As long as behavior doesn’t deteriorate, you may gradually increase carbs to 60-100 gms/day. Many patients in the 40-60 year old age


group become forgetful and fear they have Alzheimer’s. A simple test is this: if you forget where your keys are, you have too much on your mind; if you forget how to use your keys, then there is potential dementia. If you are still worried, Inland Imaging currently has a specialized MRI that measures the volume of the hippocampus and can tell 20 years beforehand if Alzheimer’s is developing; it is paid for by insurance and Medicare.
