Alzheimer's Weekly and Dementia Weekly Newsletter

 The Alzheimer's Weekly and Dementia Weekly Newsletter ( has carried information for quite some time about the use of coconut oil and MCT oil for people with Alzheimer's and dementia.  Recently they have nicely organized a considerable body of information on the subject, including some videos of people who have responded, and good information on how to use coconut oil, including recipes for the what they call the "Keto-dementia diet".

Diet and Recovery

I received this in an email from Dexter who has been sending interesting information to me.  This is an 18 minute long video in which the speaker, a physician, relays her recovery from disabling multiple sclerosis (MS) to walking without a cane within three months and riding her bike eighteen miles within 9 months.  Prior to changing her diet she had taken advantage of the best medical care available but continued to deteriorate. 
Like Alzheimer's, MS is a disease that involves defective mitochondria, so this diet would be very helpful to those suffering from Alzheimer's (and Parkinson's and ALS) as well.
We have already made a lot of progress toward this type of diet, but after watching this, we will amp up our intake of vegetables.
