In 2008 Dr. Mary Newport, a neonatologist practicing in Florida, and author of Alzheimer's Disease: What if There was a Cure? began to notice changes in her husband, Steve. He had a degree in accounting, managed her office and did the billing, bookkeeping and payroll. He began forgetting things like going to the bank or the post office and once he realized what was happening to him he became severely depressed, which is one of the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s. At 58 he was diagnosed with “early onset Alzheimer’s� which means it occurs before the age of 65. He was given the standard Alzheimer’s treatment drugs of Arisept and Namenda, but he got worse. Eventually he developed a tremor, and became basically unable to communicate. For many days in a row, he was in a fog, unable to find a spoon or figure out how to get water out of the refrigerator. Then for a few days, he’d seem to go back to his old self. Steve didn’t qualify for a clinical trial because his test score was too low, but Mary’s research found that the main ingredient in the drug they were using was Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT oil) which is derived from coconut oil.
Steve couldn’t remember where he lived, the day of the week or what county they lived in. At the time Mary didn’t realize she could order MCT oil over the Internet, so she bought coconut oil from the health food store. She stirred 2 tablespoons in Steve’s oatmeal in the morning and the effects were apparent the very same afternoon. Steve took a similar test that he had previously scored a 14 on and this time he scored an 18.
According to Dr. Newport, he continued to improve significantly over the next year and began doing household projects, working in the yard and “walks into the kitchen each morning happy and alert, talkative and making jokes.� Until he started coconut oil, his prognosis was bleak and he was steadily becoming worse.

According to researcher Dr. Mary Newport, coconut oil can help prevent these diseases due to the high concentrations of ketone bodies in its MCTs, which function as an alternative fuel source. "Humans do not normally have ketone bodies circulating and available to the brain unless they have been starving for a couple of days or longer, or are consuming a ketogenic (very low carbohydrate) diet, such as Atkins," says Newport.

Some of his symptoms even reversed thanks to an unlikely treatment prescribed by his wife, Doctor Mary Newport a physician who runs a neonatology ward at a Tampa, Florida hospital. She became determined to help her husband after he failed the so called Alzheimer's clock test.Doctor Mary Newport: He drew a few little circles and several numbers just in a very random pattern, didn't really look anything like a clock and the Doctor pulled me aside and she said, "You know he's actually on the verge of severe Alzheimer's at this point, he's beyond moderate". So that was very, very devastating news.
Lori Johnson: Doctor Newport began learning everything she could about her husbands disease.
Doctor Mary Newport: It appears to be a type of diabetes of the brain.
So Doctor Newport added coconut oil to Steve's diet. Just two weeks later he took the clock test again and as you can see demonstrated stunning improvement.
Doctor Mary Newport: I thought at the time was it just good luck? Was it a lot of prayer? Was it the coconut oil?
Doctor Mary Newport: He was not able to run, he was able to run again or he couldn't read for about a year and a half but after somewhere around 2 or 3 months he was able to read. Instead of being very sluggish, not talking very much in the morning, he would come out with energy and talkative and joking and he could find his water and utensils.
Lori Johnson: Doctor Newport documented Steve's success in a book called, Alzheimer's Disease: What if there was a Cure?
