Summary
A quick-start guide showing how to integrate life-restoring fatty acids - medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and its natural source, coconut oil - into the diet. In addition to Alzheimer's disease, this dietary treatment can be used to counter such other neurodegenerative diseases as non-Alzheimer's dementias, Parkinson's, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and multiple sclerosis. Dr Newport was not the first to call Alzheimer's "a type of diabetes of the brain," but she firmly believes it is. Areas in the brain that test positive for Alzheimer's show insulin deficiency and insulin resistance, which cause decreased glucose uptake in the cells, leading to cell malfunction and cell death. Because diet is the most important way to counter diabetes, Dr Newport advocates a dietary intervention based on a whole-food, high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet just the reverse of the current dietary model and all the processed foods sold in supermarkets. To make the dietary change easy, Dr Newport provides six choices that can be used alone or in combination for integrating coconut and MCT oils into the diet. Then she relates actual cases, based on the hundreds of people with all types of neurological problems, which show that incorporating coconut and MCT oils in the diet have brought about many exciting changes. In fact, when analysed the carer reports reveal that 91% of people with dementia or other memory impairment saw some improvement and 60% saw improvement in memory or cognition
