Dementia ?

Have noticed people posting about Dementia as a side effect of chemo/radiation. Thought this finding was really interesting, about Coconut Oil and Medium Chain Triglycerides. The drug companies released a new drug for Dementia, made from coconut oil. But this MD did her own research and found that consuming coconut oil works as well or better than the drug, and reversed her Husband's dementia.

That's funny. Well, not really funny, but they tested my wife by having her "try" and draw a clock.

She could not do it. Still can't.

She can dress herself and do some of the basics.

Yeah, I guess I'll try this too..why not?

Cocunut oil huh?

Well, the last time I posted something here, I got this weird e-mail from some guy who said he cures cancer in two weeks with herbs.

If only the researchers and oncologists at MD Anderson would talk to this genius.

Cocunut oil..curing alzheimers (dementia) wow who woulda thought.

Have seen it in Walmart, virgin organic coconut oil. It's around $20 for 54 ounces

Finally something you and I might agree on. Unlike other cells nerve cells operate in a fat medium. Everything which feeds, oxygenates, repairs, and removes waste for nerves is fat soluble .....not true of other cells. This distinction drives the "blood brain barrier". There's a strong probability that recent increases in maladies like Alzheimer's, autism, depression, autoimmune disease, are largely fueled by our leaders and information outlets insisting that we eat "low fat". Is MCT oil superior to other fats? Doubtful. A good mix of fats is needed in abundance. Probably contrary to your opinion, animal fat and fish oil should be on the menu. Abundant intake of these fats would preclude looking around for fad oils. Sunshine (vitamin D) is a must for nerve function. It is fat soluble.

The reason for the unfounded fear of fats is elevated "cholesterol", or elevated levels of low density lipoprotein (LDL). Cholesterols are fat blobs. Cholesterol is necessary for human survival. When we don't have enough cholesterol our livers manufacture more. The evidence against cholesterol comes from the fact that high density LDL particles congregate around atherosclerotic lesions and blood clots in arteries. The problem? Neither the atherosclerosis nor the high density LDL particles come from fat ingestion. They come from sugar ingestion.

I recently read something "good" about coconut oil.  Can't remember the source, or the exact topic, but I do recall it being from something "reliable".  (like, not a spam thing).

Actually, it mentioned the "water" from the coconut (when it's broken open).  I don't know if that is considered the same as "oil", or "milk" or whatever.
