The University of South Florida Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute has announced that they will conduct an 8-month pilot study investigating coconut oil for individuals with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. For those in Florida that would like to participate in the trial, see the flyer above.

Coconut oil has made dramatic improvement in many people with Alzheimer’s, and Health Impact News has published many of these testimonies. See for example:

We applaud the Byrd Institute for conducting this study.

The nation’s largest Alzheimer’s “non-profit” research institute made statements last year to its members discouraging them from trying coconut oil. The Alzheimer’s Association receives over $230 million per year, but refuses to study anything besides pharmaceutical drugs. A review of their public tax returns show that 27% of their revenue is spent on salaries and management, and much of the remaining 73% goes to medical colleges, universities, and hospitals for research, all with strong ties to the pharmaceutical industry.

A Holistic Guide to Geriatric Care – eBook

In this book we look at the problems and causes of Alzheimer’s as they are related to an epidemic of prescription drugs being marketed to seniors, and we look at the strong evidence for dietary intervention, starting with coconut oil.

We bring you the stories of 10 different families who saw Alzheimer’s lessened or reversed by adding coconut oil to their diet, which is representative of thousands of others who are experiencing similar results. We offer guidelines on usage and types of coconut oil to consider, as well as other non-drug tips for holistic geriatric care.

Our target audience is the millions of caregivers out there loving caring for our senior population who will find it difficult to get this information from their doctors or medical professionals not trained in these areas.
