    Alzheimer's Team: Dr. Treats Husband's Alzheimer's With Coconut Oil




    "We don't really know what causes Alzheimer's, but one of the real early signs is that brain cells lose their ability to process sugar, which is their primary fuel, and they die," Nohlgren said. "The theory behind coconut oil is it can induce the body to create an alternate fuel to keep those cells alive."


    But before trying coconut oil at home -- Alzheimer's patients should check with their doctor because there can be some serious risks.

    Best thing you can do for yourself and your family is to get rid of all that processed food and start taking vitamin supplements.

    Very interesting.


    Coconut oil was one of the big products at this years fancy food show. I ordered it in several form to give it a try in baking and cooking applications. Im sauteing prawns in it later this week.

    One of the ways it came was i in a capsule as a dietary supplement..

    I do eat it right from the jar. I swear, my skin gets so dry in the winter up here. I eat about 3 spoonfuls a day and my skin stays really good.

    Read up on it, it is good for lots of issues you may be experiencing. I get a big jar of it for about $30 at IGA and it is the very best thing I invest in all year.

    Once a week, I slather it on my face and hair and leave it for a couple of hours. Fabulous.
