Mary shares a success story using Coconut oil with her husband.  Her husband was "too far gone" to qualify for a clinical study but after trying Coconut oil he qualified.  She also talks about trials with MCT oil (coconut oil is a great source of MCT oil).   She also stressed that Alzheimer's is called "diabetes of the brain" most likely due to excessive sugar in our diets.  The brain uses glucose for fuel.  However, MCT produces ketones and ketones can be used as an alternate energy source for the brain.

TAKEAWAYS:

-Add coconut oil to your diet daily (start with small doses, 1/2 teaspoon)  Take with food.  Increase every 2-3 days.  People with Alzheimer's may need to work up to 4-6 TB a day.
-When cooking with Coconut oil use medium heat or less
-Add coconut oil to smoothies
-Buy MCT oil (larger dose of MCT, than coconut oil)  It stays liquid unlike coconut oil.
-Drink coconut water even though it has no coconut oil.  Has other benefits.
-Try coconut milk.  Make a drink by diluting with water, or coconut water.  About a 1/2 can equals  a Tablespoon of coconut oil.
-Bake with coconut flour (high in fiber, doesn't spike blood sugar)
