How Turmeric Can Save the Aging Brain From Dementia and Premature Death How Turmeric Can Save the Aging Brain From Dementia and Premature Death

A promising new study published in Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry reveals the primary polyphenol in turmeric known as curcumin (which gives it its golden hue) may provide what the study authors describe as an “effective therapeutic strategy to reverse age-related cerebrovascular dysfunction.”

Age-related cerebrovascular dysfunction is occurring on an epidemic scale in Western countries and include, “stroke, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases.” Presently, very few if any conventional medical interventions are capable of providing effective solutions, and none have been found to reverse underlying pathologies in conditions whose trajectories are generally characterized as ‘incurable.’ All the more reason why the new study holds so much promise in providing an evidence-based natural solution that is safe, effective, affordable and easily accessible as a familiar food ingredient.

Woman Writes Book on Mother’s Recovery from Alzheimer’s After Starting Coconut Oil Woman Writes Book on Mother’s Recovery from Alzheimer’s After Starting Coconut Oil

My book is called ‘Thoughts of Yesterday.’ The reason I gave my book this title is because when Mammy was at her worst with Alzheimer’s, she could still remember her first day at school, but her thoughts of yesterday were gone. Her condition deteriorated quite rapidly, as we were advised it would. She had several periods of aggression which proved very difficult to manage and ultimately sedatives were prescribed to ease the symptoms. She had repeated kidney infections, one of which resulted in her being rushed to hospital by ambulance.

Since taking the coconut oil, she has had NO periods of aggression whatsoever, and her kidney infections have become much less frequent. As a result of this, she has not had any sedatives over the last year, fewer antibiotics and also her blood pressure is perfect.

Overall, her mood has much improved, she engages better in conversation and is very happy in herself. I have no doubt that if we had not found out about coconut oil, my mother would be in a home by now.

Coconut Oil Lifts Brain Fog and Stops Memory Loss for 65 Year Old Women Coconut Oil Lifts Brain Fog and Stops Memory Loss for 65 Year Old Women

My daughter told me about coconut oil after I started suffering severe and disturbing memory loss and brain fog to the point that I could barely have a conversation with anyone.

I’ve been using it for over a year now and am very pleased to be myself again. The fog is gone and I’m able to drive safely again. I’ve been able to resume my hobbies: knitting and crochet because I can read and remember the patterns now.

Over time, I found an additional benefit: my joints have stopped cracking all the time and I’m much more flexible once again.

Study: Coconut Oil Could Prevent Neurodegeneration in Diseases like Alzheimer’s Study: Coconut Oil Could Prevent Neurodegeneration in Diseases like Alzheimer’s

The anecdotal evidence for coconut oil treating and even reversing Alzheimer’s Disease, as well as other neuro-degenerative diseases, has become so strong, that you can be sure the medical community has definitely taken notice.

As we have reported numerous times, however, the Alzheimer’s Association and pharmaceutical companies will not fund studies on coconut oil, since it is a natural product that cannot be patented. Therefore, we can expect funding looking at research to develop patent-able drugs that mimic the effects of coconut oil, as the success of coconut oil in treating neuro-degenerative diseases continues to spread.

A study recently released by the Faculty of Medicine at Memorial University of Newfoundland might be one of the first of many such studies. The title of the study is “Coconut Oil Attenuates the Effects of Amyloid- on Cortical Neurons In Vitro.” Rather than study the dietary effects of coconut oil, or the ketogenic diet, on neuro-degenerative diseases, this was actually an in vitro study that examined “rodent cortical neurons exposed to AB peptide” and virgin coconut oil, most likely in a petri dish or beaker, inside of a laboratory.

Could they be setting the stage for yet-to-be-developed drugs that will mimic the effects of virgin coconut oil?

Private Foundation Funds Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s Research Private Foundation Funds Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s Research

The University of South Florida’s Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute has decided to research coconut oil and Alzheimer’s Disease. They have a study currently in progress where they enrolled 65 individuals with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s to measure the effects of coconut oil, versus a placebo, on the disease. The funding reportedly came from a private foundation, as there is obviously no interest in researching this inside the medical system with its billions of dollars in revenue and government funds to develop drugs that can be patented.

Could Eating This Simple Black Seed Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease? Could Eating This Simple Black Seed Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease?

A new study reveals that the seeds of Nigella sativa, commonly known as “black seed,” may provide an ideal nutritional supplement for preventing or slowing the progression of Alzheimer disease. The researchers also noted that beyond its neuroprotective properties Nigella Sativa also has kidney protective, lung protective, cardioprotective and liver protective properties.

Coconut Oil Gave my Grandma Back to Us! Coconut Oil Gave my Grandma Back to Us!

After a few weeks of gradually increasing her coconut oil intake and working up to 3 TBS daily, Grandma had improved even beyond where she was when she first came to live with Mom. Her memory was improving and her confusion was gone. She was pleasant and happy to be with us: she was a fully functioning 86 year old! Even some of her aches and pains were better! That was two years ago and now, at the age of 88, Grandma is still taking the coconut oil and has not lost one bit of her alertness, memory, or character! Coconut oil gave my Grandma back to us!

University of South Florida Byrd Institute to Conduct Clinical Trials on Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s University of South Florida Byrd Institute to Conduct Clinical Trials on Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s

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

Studies Show Cinnamon and B Vitamins can Help Prevent Alzheimer’s Studies Show Cinnamon and B Vitamins can Help Prevent Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease is currently at epidemic proportions, with 5.4 million Americans—including one in eight people aged 65 and over—living with it. There is no known cure, and few truly effective treatments. Two recent studies show that compounds in cinnamon, and vitamins B12, B6, and folate may delay the onset and/or slow progression of the disease.

Turmeric Produces ‘Remarkable’ Recovery in Alzheimer’s Patients Turmeric Produces ‘Remarkable’ Recovery in Alzheimer’s Patients

Turmeric has been used in India for over 5,000 years, which is likely why still today both rural and urban populations have some of the lowest prevalence rates of Alzheimer’s disease in the world. A recent study on patients with Alzheimer’s disease found that less than a gram of turmeric daily, taken for three months, resulted in ‘remarkable improvements.’
