Dr. Mary T. Newport is a pediatrician and this story is about her husband who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in his  50s.

Prior to being diagnosed with the disease, Steve, Dr. Newport’s husband, had dementia for 5 years. 

As such, he was in bad shape.

He was confused for many successive days and couldn’t handle cutleries nor take something from the fridge.  

Mary would ask him if somebody called and he would say NO.

Two days later, he would recall and convey the message to such questions, but it was quite late.

The parietal and frontal lobes in Steve’s brain as well as the amygdala and hippocampus were really atrophied and severely damaged.

While he had no short-term memory, he could make out new information a couple of days later at least. Steve’s wife suspected his diet had a role to play in this issue.

He had the medication from the doctors but they were not effective. 

He lost weight, got depression, had tremors, and even stopped running and moving fast.

Then, his wife decided to treat him her own way. 

She embarked on studying other alternative remedies besides medical ones.

Ketasyn AC-1202 is among the drugs she discovered, and it stopped the development of Alzheimer’s in many patients in just 3 months.

She did an in-depth study of the drug and found its active ingredient to be MCT medium chain triglycerides oil – coconut oil.

Mary gave Steve 2 spoons of this oil, together with food,  twice a day. After 2 months, her husband was alert, happier, and talked more. 

His tremor also disappeared.

After 1 year, he could recognize faces, talk with his family and do some nature walk. 

Moreover, he could read again, something that’s unusual with this disease. 

While he wasn’t fully himself, he had a chance to improve even more.


The brain needs about 60% glucose of everything you ingest. 

However, an ill brain doesn’t utilize all that glucose, as it has hypometabolism, impaired cognition, as well as decline.

The ketones are byproducts of fat breakdown and are energy replacement for the brain. 

Even, they can regenerate nerves and neurons in the brain after damage.

In this situation, the neurons in some areas can’t take the glucose as they’ve developed insulin resistance. 

If those cells came into contact with ketones, they could survive.

While the ketones appear after we starve for a while, the MCTs can get oxygenized with the liver and arise more in ketones.

The coconut oil is also good for curingParkinson’s, Huntington’s, diabetes, drug resistant epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis.
