Another good reason to consider going to a Low-carbohydrate, Ketogenic way of eating. Not proof, but quite interesting theory.
Is Alzheimer’s a result of the standard American low-fat high carb diet? Researchers have called it “type-3 diabetes” since it shows insulin sensitivity. Some patients have had improvement with ketogenic diets.
Dr. Mary Newport would like to see more research into it. Since coconut oil is harmless and widely available, why wait for research. Coconut oil raises ketones in the bloodstream and her husband showed immediate improvement in his early alzheimer’s symptoms. That got her thinking.
Reseach is needed
Dr. Newport’s Ted talk is a call for research on Alzheimer’s, ALS and other brain degenerative diseases.
