How a Doctor Reversed Her Husband's Alzheimer's Disease in 37 Days
New breakthrough improves memory. restores lost brain function . and even revives dying cells!

by Frank Shallenberger, MD

If you’ve ever known anyone with Alzheimer’s disease, you know how heart-breaking it can be. Not only does it destroy a person’s mental abilities and dignity … but it wipes out the person’s very personality, leaving behind a mere shell of a human being. The body is there for you to see, but the person you know and love no longer exists.
That’s exactly what happened to my colleague Dr. Mary Newport and her husband Steve. As Mary describes it, “I was watching my husband of 36 years fade away.”

Things didn’t start out that way, of course. For most of Steve’s life, he was known for his quick wit and sharp mind. He could do complicated math in his head … take apart computers and repair them … fix practically anything else without instruction. If he didn’t have a tool to do something he would “invent” one and make a usable prototype.

 He was also a voracious reader. And he loved kayaking, cooking, landscaping, and caring for his two daughters.
Indeed, on the day the couples’ first daughter was born, Steve left his corporate job as an accountant so he could work from home. He took over as manager of Mary’s medical practice, handing all the accounting and administrative tasks. The practice grew by leaps and bounds.

Tragedy Strikes
But then Steve’s memory started failing him. At first, it was little things, like misplacing his keys and forgetting appointments. But then the lapses became more serious. He started making errors with the accounting and payroll. Forgetting whether had had made the bank deposits. Missing tax deadlines.
A psychiatrist diagnosed him as having depression, and put him on antidepressant drugs and psychological counseling. But of course, that didn’t help. Steve’s memory continued to get worse. He started getting lost while trying to drive home. He couldn’t even remember how to turn on the car’s windshield wiper.

By now it was clear that Steve had dementia. Mary wrote in her journal: “It has been a nightmare to watch his decline. Every night, we hold each other before we go to sleep and I wonder how many more times we will get to do this.”
Mary took Steve to a neurologist, who put him on the drugs Aricept, Namenda, and Exelon. But still, Steve continued to worsen. He’d spend his days walking around the house confused, wearing only one shoe. He couldn’t remember how to use a spoon or how to get water out of the refrigerator. At a family reunion, he no longer recognized close relatives. He even forgot that he had fathered his oldest daughter.

Mary did everything she could for Steve. She cooked for him, gave him his medications, helped him get dressed.
She also tried to enroll him in studies on new experimental drugs. But Steve scored so low on the mental exam that he didn’t qualify for the studies.
When Steve took the Mini Mental Status Exam (MMSR), he scored a 14 out of 30, which indicates severe dementia. And when he took a test where he was asked to draw a clock from memory, this is what he drew:
And that’s not all. When Steve took a genetic test for Alzheimer’s, he tested positive for the leading Alzheimer’s gene. And when he had an MRI of his brain, the MRI found a shrinking of the hippocampus and damage to his frontal and parietal lobes.
Still, there were brief moments when the old Steve would make a brief appearance. Sometimes he’d be able to hold a coherent conversation. Sometimes, he would even say something clever or crack a joke. One day, Mary asked if a certain phone call came and he said “no.” Two days later, he remembered the call and what the caller said.

In Mary’s words, it was “Strange to have no short-term memory and yet the information was filed somewhere in his brain. I knew he was locked up in there somewhere, if only there was a key to open up the areas of his brain that he didn’t have access to.”
Little did Mary know that she would soon find that very key.
One day, Mary came across research on an experimental drug called Ketasyn. She learned that in a study of Alzheimer’s patients, this drug brought about improvement in half the people who took it.

Mary was astonished by these findings. As she put it, “Most drugs talk about slowing the progression of the disease, but you never hear the word ‘improvement.’ Right then I knew I had to find out more.”

Mary did research on the internet and came across a patent application for the drug. The application included a description of how the drug works and a list of the drug’s ingredients. Much to Mary’s surprise, the main ingredient of the drug was medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), derived from coconuts.

Could the solution to Alzheimer’s be as simple as taking MCT oils? Mary decided she had nothing to lose. She went to the health food store and bought some coconut oil. The next morning, she mixed it in Steve’s oatmeal and fed it to him. She then drove him to an appointment where he was scheduled to re-take the MMSR exam.

As soon as they got to the appointment, Steve was whisked away to the exam room. When he came back, Steve told Mary that he was unhappy with his performance. So Mary pulled aside the research coordinator and asked how Steve did. The coordinator looked at Mary and said “Didn’t he tell you? He scored an 18!”

The last time Steve had taken the test, he’d scored a 14 out of 30. Yet here he was scoring an 18. That’s an improvement of 28%.
But that’s not all. Within a few days, Steve told Mary that he felt the “light switch came back on” and the “fog lifted.” Could this dramatic improvement be due to the coconut oil?
Amazingly , the answer is “yes.” And here’s why …

How It Works
Coconut oil and other MCTs increase your body’s production of compounds called ketones. You may have heard of ketones if you’ve ever been on the Atkins diet. Quite simply, ketones are compounds that are created when body fat is broken down for energy.
When your body is starved of carbs, it starts burning your fat stores to create energy. That’s why people on low-carb diets lose weight. It’s also why people on low-carb diets produce more ketones.

Why is this important? Well, it turns out that ketones are a powerful fuel for the brain. Especially when the brain is injured or impaired.

For example, scientists have known for years that one of the best ways to stop seizures is to put a patient on a low-carb, high-fat diet. Normally, brain cells prefer to get their fuel from glucose. But impaired brain cells, such as cells that are causing seizures, cannot metabolize glucose well. They need another source of fuel. And that source is ketones.

Mary didn’t know this at the time, but there are over 20 different studies on the effect of ketones on the brain. These studies are published in obscure journals that most doctors don’t read. Nonetheless, the findings of the studies are important:
• One study found that when the brain uses ketones, it produces 25% more energy than when it uses glucose.
• Another study found that a ketone-producing diet results in a 39% increase in blood flow to the brain.
• And still another study found that mice put on a ketone-producing diet had fewer brain plaques than mice fed a standard diet.

I’ve been researching ketones for years, and I’ve been using them in my own medical practice. Whenever I put my Alzhiemer’s patients on a ketone-producing diet, they always improve. However, the improvement is usually modest.
It wasn’t until I spoke to Mary that I realized I could get a much stronger effect by giving my patients MCT oils. You see, it turns out that when you add MCT oils to a low-carb diet, the body is absolutely flooded with ketones. This results in an amazing improvement in brain function.

Back to our story ...
Mary continued to feed Steve coconut oil, and he continued to improve. Two weeks after Steve began taking coconut oil, Mary asked him to draw another clock. This is what he drew:
And about three weeks after that (on Day 37), she asked him to draw a clock again. He drew this:
But that’s not all. Just two months after Steve began taking coconut oil, Mary wrote the following:
“It has been 60 days since he started taking coconut oil. He walks into the kitchen every morning alert and happy, talkative, making jokes. His gait (his ability to walk with coordination) is still a little weird. His tremor is no longer very noticeable. He is able to concentrate on things that he wants to do around the house and in the yard and stay on task, whereas before coconut oil he was easily distracted and rarely accomplished anything unless I supervised him directly.”

I spoke to Dr. Mary Newport just recently. Not only is Steve’s gait totally back to normal, but he now jogs daily! His tremor is completely gone. And he has also gone back to being an avid reader. He recently relayed the details of two articles he read in Scientific American.

His memory is also dramatically improved. He often brings up events that happened days or weeks earlier.
He recognizes his relatives again and has conversations with them. He is back to doing the yard work at the house. And he has started doing volunteer work at the local hospital.
Mary and I are convinced that these changes are due to the coconut oil. Why? Because any time Steve misses a dose, his Alzheimer’s symptoms immediately start to return.

According to Mary, Steve missed getting his morning oil on two occasions: once because he had a fasting blood test and the other time because he was travelling. In both instances, he became dazed and confused, with full-blown tremors. And in both instances, he got back to normal after taking the coconut oil.
Can coconut oil work for you or a loved one? The odds are good that it can. Not everyone will benefit to the same degree that Steve did. But I will tell you this: In my experience there will always be some degree of improvement.

That’s why I want to send you a new special report I wrote. The report is called How to Reverse Alzheimer’s Disease. And it gives you complete instructions on how to use MCT oils to treat Alzheimer’s Disease and other brain illnesses.

You’ll find out what types of oil work best, how much to take, and in what combination. You’ll find out how to monitor your ketone levels using a simple do-it yourself test you can do at home. And you’ll learn about how MCT oils can be used to treat Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, multiple sclerosis,
Lou Gehrig’s disease, and more.

The Lazarus Cure

One day my friend Jake hopped onto his bicycle and, like he had done many times before, my good friend and "weekend warrior" entered himself into a long-distance racing event. 

The event was to last seven days. But Jake never made it to the end of the first day. 

He suffered a massive heart attack and died before reaching the hospital. 

He was 63 years of age. 

When I heard the news I was as shocked as anyone. 

I am no stranger to death, but when someone with vitality is suddenly snatched away like this it is a sombre reminder that no-one is immune to the laws of biology, and that we take our fate in our hands every single day that we take our health for granted.

I do not know what killed Jake that day. Many factors might have contributed. Stress, diet, high blood pressure coupled with poor medical intervention, or none at all... Who knows? But I can say two things with some degree of certainty. 

The first is that despite the apparent "out of the blue" nature of his death…
