Is coconut oil the new found remedy for Alzheimer’s?

A startling case of one Mr. Vrajlal Parmar has found many takers among the affected community. He was diagnosed with an extreme case of Alzheimer’s, where even the Cognitive Disorders Clinic at University College London after evaluating his case expressed, that any drug treatment for him will prove to be ineffective. It came as a shock to the former factory worker’s family and his son Mr. Kal Parmar a filmmaker by profession, so he started to get himself acquainted through the internet. He found a story on the YouTube about a Florida doctor Dr. Mary Newport whose husband Harry when treated with coconut oil showed remarkable improvement from his present condition of Alzheimer’s. The same was endorsed by Kieran Clarke, head of the Cardiac Metabolism Research Group and also professor of physiological biochemistry at the Oxford University.
Taking a cue from the same, since last July Kal administered his father with a teaspoonful of coconut oil twice daily. The results have been remarkable, before he started him on coconut oil, his dad’s speech was gone and he couldn’t remember his name or his date of birth. But, now he can have a simple conversation with him and even go for walks, and also remembers his national insurance number.
Since then numerous cases of dramatic improvements have been reported in the U.S.
Explaining the possible effect of coconut oil Professor Clarke emphasized that coconut oil and similar compounds might help by boosting the brain’s energy supply. Coconut oil contains a lot of a particular sort of fat that our bodies can use to make more of the Ketone ‘brain food’. 'It’s known as MCT (medium chain triglycerides) and it’s not found in the fats most of us eat.
However, precisely why ketones assist individuals with Alzheimer’s?
Among the recent tips regarding the ailment is the fact that it really is diabetes of the human brain.As people with diabetes end up having glucose and also insulin, accordingly Alzheimer’s patients can’t have sufficient glucose into brain cells to provide them with the fuel they need to place fresh memories and also reason clearly.
Presently, the sole kind of medication readily available for Alzheimer’s individuals, referred to as a cholinesterase inhibitor, works by way of improving the volume of a human brain chemical substance they might be inadequate.It retards memory deterioration in around one third of victims for between 6 months and twelve months. Its possible negative effects consist of queasiness, diarrhoea and even slower cardiac rhythms, which could result in fainting.
This will handle the energy supply to the human brain be yet another alternative?
An expert who believes it’s really worth checking out is Professor Rudy Tanzi, director of the Genetics and Ageing Research Division at Massachusetts General Hospital and even a professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School.
In a newly released report for the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, he articulated exactly why coconut oil could be effective.‘Virgin coconut oil includes the body fats which can be transformed into Ketone bodies, which could function as an alternative source of energy for the human brain.
'The Ketone body could possibly give vitality to the glucose-deprived brains of Alzheimer’s victims.’ He emphasized that, up to now, there was clearly absolutely no proof — and also cautioned that coconut oil by itself have their own down-side.‘The excess fat (present in coconut oil) might be possibly unhealthy for the heart, therefore, would be smart to consistently watch cholesterol as well as triglyceride levels if you happen to be using it.’
These facts might soon be originating from the very first coconut test currently being established by Dave Morgan, professor of molecular pharmacology and also physiology as well as chief of the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute in Florida.
‘I was really amazed by the anecdotal proof collected by Dr. Newport,’ he states. ‘Patients would like to know if this works; and also who is actually about to gain, yet our doctors don’t have any clinical foundation to recommend these people.‘It is going to be a placebo-controlled test on individuals with low to average Alzheimer’s. I don’t hope it to stabilize the development of the ailment; however it may seem to strengthen a few of the signs or symptoms.’
But, David Smith, professor of pharmacology at the Physiology Institute at Oxford University and even the director of Optima (Oxford Project to Investigate Memory and Ageing), insists it is an error.‘We do not have any means of understanding if coconut oil is really helpful , yet considering the range of the Alzheimer’s problems confronting us , knowing that there’s a logical system for why it may do the trick, it’s undoubtedly calling you for an appropriate test.’ And even everyone is craving for details on something that may help with Alzheimer’s.
The instant Kal Parmar spoke to a neighbourhood newspaper regarding his father’s progress, he got over a hundred and fifty mail messages requesting support.
Up to now around half a dozen individuals in the United Kingdom have returned to him stating they experienced somebody in their household on coconut oil, in some instances with remarkable outcomes following Dr. Newport’s news.Of late, following Dr. Newport’s case in point, Kal includes a teaspoon of MCT oil two times daily to his father’s routine.
