CBN Reports on Coconut Oil for Alzheimer’s

Pin It

Health Impact News Editor Comments:

For many years Pat Robertson of CBN and the 700 Club has warned his viewers of the dangers of saturated fat, assuming that the lipid theory of heart disease was true. I tried many years ago to send them our book on the health benefits of coconut oil, backed by solid research and over 100 testimonies, by sending a copy to then co-host Terry Meeuwsen, whom I had met once at a church in Mequon Wisconsin. At the time I simply got a polite letter back stating they would review the information. But with Pat Robertson preaching the evils of saturated fat, I figured there wasn’t much chance that the coconut oil message would be heard. I am glad they have now published Dr. Mary Newport’s story about her husband and his success against Alzheimer’s, a story we published on our website coconutoil.com back in 2008. Any time coconut oil receives positive press and people see some of the benefits, that is a positive thing!

As you watch this very well-produced report by CBN, let me offer a couple of cautions. While Dr. Newport accurately portrays Alzheimer’s as a type 3 diabetes, nothing is mentioned about some of factors or causes that lead to Alzheimers that include restricting cholesterol which the brain needs to stay healthy. The two primary culprits in restricting much needed cholesterol to the brain, is the low-fat dietary philosophy that restricts saturated fat (coconut oil is the most saturated of all dietary oils), and artificially lowering cholesterol through statin drugs, which studies now show are completely worthless in preventing heart disease, and very dangerous. Another doctor is actually quoted stating that cholesterol is both good and bad (HDL vs. LDL), a common theory that is being challenged today especially in terms of a causal relationship. Dr. Newport admits that her husband Steve was taking statins (cholesterol lowering drugs) until she took him off of them in 2009, after studying the cholesterol issue. She stops short, however, in recommending that others suffering from Alzheimer’s do the same.

So while this is a positive report, the research we previously published on Alzheimer’s and coconut oil and recently updated is still a more comprehensive report taking into consideration much more recent research: Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s: The Low-fat Diet and Cholesterol Lowering Drugs Part of the Problem?

Here’s the CBN report:

Coconut Oil Touted as Alzheimer’s Remedy

by Lorie Johnson CBN News

An estimated 5.4 million people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and that number is expected to increase exponentially as baby boomer generation enters their golden years.

But for some people, coconut oil has proven to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s and may have even prevented it.

One of those people is Steve Newport, whose Alzheimer’s has slowed considerably. Some of his symptoms even reversed, thanks to the unlikely treatment prescribed by his wife, Dr. Mary Newport, a physician who runs a neonatology ward at a Tampa, Fla., hospital.

Having a plate or bowl of candies out for parties and holidays is a common sight to be seen, but no one needs to be putting those kinds of crazy amounts of processed ingredients into their bodies. The solution would be to make your own candies so you can control what goes into them and make the end result a good deal better for you.

The recipes here are simply processed sugar-free, not sweetener free. The sweeteners used here are traditional sweeteners such as raw honey and maple syrup. In addition, because these are candy recipes there is a very high sugar content for nearly all of them, and thus they are not a health food, but a sweet treat to be enjoyed occasionally.

While candy making is seen as a daunting, day-long task, it can actually be far easier than you may realize. Using different coconut ingredients such as coconut oil, Coconut Cream Concentrate and coconut milk to make candies will not only will provide coconut flavor, but also cut out a lot of complicated steps to candy making. Homemade coconut oil chocolate is a very popular and easy DIY candy that requires no cooking, as is using Coconut Cream Concentrate (also known as “coconut butter”) to make white chocolate-like candy barks.

Here are 10 easy-to-make, beginner-friendly homemade candies utilizing at least one coconut ingredient to make an impressively delicious and easily portable sweet treat that you can have out at parties or package up to give away. Try one, or try them all! Many are even completely no bake and no cook. It doesn’t get any easier than that. Just keep in mind that these are candy recipes, so don’t be eating them like you should your vegetables.

A PhD Nutritionist from Tufts University who is the Vice Chairman of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee for the USDA has come out and condemned coconut oil.

Does being involved in research for GMOs, the soybean industry, and developing cholesterol guidelines used to sell statin drugs create any conflict of interest in her advice? Do you trust USDA dietary advice regarding edible oils?

Aside from using coconut oil as a basic cooking oil for all different types of stovetop cooking methods, this oil is also suitable for baking. Coconut oil can be used in two main ways for baking: as a natural non-sticking agent, and as a baking fat (such as shortening, butter, and other oils).

Coconut Oil Cooking Spray: Healthy or Toxic?

One of the most popular products available to the general consumer to combat the issue of baked and cooked food sticking to cooking surfaces is non-stick spray. A good reason to avoid these sprays is the fact that many of them are made with unhealthy oils and lecithins, generally derived from GMO crops such as soy or corn.

But what about if they are made from a healthy oil, such as coconut oil?

Unfortunately, these cooking sprays also contain heavily processed ingredients, including propellants. Propellant is what pushes the spray out of the can, and is usually made from such things as nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, or propane.

Coconut flour is one of the trickiest, if not the trickiest, most finicky, temperamental, fickle gluten free flour to work with. However, when you get it right, coconut flour baked goods will be some of the best you’ve ever had, gluten free or otherwise.

One of the hardest baked goods to transfer over to gluten free with coconut flour would be cookies. How do you do it? It’s either not the right texture, too crumbly, too dense, requires too many eggs or simply bakes up into sawdust.

Here are some proven tips to making successful coconut flour cookies based on three textures: crispy cookies, cakey cookies, chewy cookies. I include 10 kitchen-proven recipes to get you started.
