How to treat dementia and Alzheimer’s with coconut oil

Coconut oil gives hope to Alzheimer’s and other dementia sufferers

When someone you love has Alzheimer’s or any other form of dementia, you may have been told that there is nothing that can be done. It is true that manufactured drugs are usually ineffective in treating dementia, often causing worse problems.

But don’t give up.

Many patients with various dementia problems have found new clarity of mind simply by changing their diet to include the natural oil of the coconut. Researchers in the field of nutrition are uncovering startling facts about coconut oil, and dementia sufferers are starting to recover.

If you are looking for help for someone with dementia, or if you are at risk for developing Alzheimer’s, coconut oil may be the answer.

Consult with your health care professional to find out out if this might be effective in your specific case.


Step 1

Check your nearest whole food store or the Internet for organic extra virgin coconut oil. This will be in solid form unless the room is very warm. (it turns to a liquid oil in a warm house and gets very hard when placed in the refrigerator.)

Step 2

Throw away unhealthy oils

Many of the oils you have been told were healthy could actually hinder recovery. Canola and other refined oils "have been shown to play a role in the cause of a number of degenerative diseases." Keep the extra virgin olive oil but do not use it for high heat cooking. Coconut oil will do the job in a much safer fashion.

Step 3

Starting dose

Most people, especially those accustomed to low fat diets should start taking the coconut oil gradually, replacing the fat usually consumed as margarine or refined oils with coconut oil, and adding 2 extra teaspoons in the morning.

Step 4

Gradually increase the dose

The dosage can gradually be increased until 2 tablespoons in the morning and a total of 4 or 5 tablespoons daily is tolerated without causing loose stools.

The oil can be served on bread like butter, warmed and added to hot cereal, eaten right off the spoon (its flavor is delicious), served on vegetables, baked with, or used in any way that oil, animal fats or butter can be used.

Things Needed
✯ Organic extra virgin coconut oil

Tips & Warnings
✯ Coconut oil is also great for diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and thyroid function.
✯ The coconut oil will give a person more energy, increasing metabolism and alertness.
✯ Try using coconut oil for the flakiest pie crusts.
✯ Deep frying is safest and tastiest with coconut oil.
✯ Appetite for unhealthy fast foods will diminish with the use of coconut oil.
✯ Coconut oil keeps in the cupboard for at least 2 years without going stale. It is not necessary to leave it in the refrigerator unless there is a reason for wanting it very hard.
✯ If you do not have dementia and are not at risk just use coconut oil in place of other oils taking 1 and 2 tablespoons.
✯ Although coconut oil has definitely helped others with Alzheimer’s and dementia, not all people are sick for the same reasons. If after a month of use the patient has not shown any signs of improvement, and if the coconut oil is not helping in other ways such as lowering blood pressure or lowering blood sugar levels, cut back on coconut usage to normal fat intake of 1 or 2 tablespoons.

    Coconut oil is so delicious and works so well as a butter or oil substitute that I never have a problem finding ways to use it. Here is one suggestion. Take some soft coconut oil, and add a bit of coco powder and a bit of maple syrup to it, and blend. Either use it as a soft spread, or spread it on wax paper to harden in the fridge and eat as a chocolate bar. It’s yummy and healthy at the same time.

    Just found your story when I was researching benefits of coconut oil and was to take or use it as a man from work recommended it as he was a user of it and my dad has dementia. Was wondering if you could offer some ways to take or use it.

    Marci, I think you are right. There does seem to be a direct relation between coconut oil going out of favor and Alzheimer’s on the rise.

    Wonderful news. I have to wonder, with coconut oil going «out of favor» in the early 1990’s in the US, and a large increase in dementia and Alzheimers over the last decade if there is any relation? My grandparents and my husbands grandparents lived into their mid to late 90s and were sharp as tacks. We recently lost both my parents and my mother-in-law in the last 2 years, all in the mid-80s and all three, sadly, spent the last years of their lives suffering dementia or Alzheimers. Coconut oil is going back in my kitchen cupboard.

    Wonderful news. Anything that will help is worth the try.

    Trenna, my husband is the man in the first video. He just preformed the first part of a wedding ceremony on Saturday. Two months ago he couldn’t even read or talk properly. He had to have help with all his basic needs. Within three hours of taking coconut oil that changed. Now he is doing everything by himself. I don’t know if it will help for everyone but it sure did for him.

    Do you have personal experience with this? I have a family member in the home with Alzheimers and am very interested.
