How to treat dementia and Alzheimer’s with coconut oil
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.
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.)
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.
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.
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.
