Now, Dr. Mary Newport has developed a theory around the digestion of coconut oil and its effects on the brain. Her theory revolved around ketone bodies. Ketone bodies are produced by our bodies whenever we digest coconut oil, and she thinks that they could be an alternative fuel for our brains. Specifically, Newport thinks that it can benefit those suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Newport actually has first-hand experience with Alzheimer's disease. Steve, her husband, began experiencing cognitive problems related to progressive dementia in his mid-50s. An MRI scan would eventually lead to Steve's diagnosis of Alzheimer's.
Mary talks a bit about how it affected her husband:
"Many days, often for several days in a row, he was in a fog; couldn't find a spoon or remember how to get water out of the refrigerator… One day I would ask if a certain call came that I was expecting and he would say 'No.' Two days later he would remember the message from so-and-so from a couple of days earlier and what they said."
Oddly enough, it seemed as though Steve still retained information in his brain even when he had zero short-term memory. Mary got a strange feeling that his diet had something to do with it.
...
So, Dr. Newport decided that her husband should try a daily regimen of coconut oil, just to see if it would have any effect. And it absolutely did. Two months after adding coconut oil to his diet, Steve was more aware and happy. He was making conversation, making jokes, and his tremors were less intense.
After a year of two tablespoons of coconut oil twice every day, Mary says that Steve is a changed man. She says that, while he struggles occasionally with words, he recognizes family members, actively participates in conversation and has more lively facial expressions.

Mary Newport, MD, has been medical director of the neonatal intensive care unit at Spring Hill Regional Hospital in Florida since it opened in 2003. About the same time the unit opened, her husband Steve, then 53, began showing signs of progressive dementia, later diagnosed as Alzheimer's Disease. She stated that: "Many days, often for several days in a row, he was in a fog; couldn't find a spoon or remember how to get water out of the refrigerator".

They started him on Alzheime's drugs - Aricept, Namenda, Exelon - but his disease worsened steadily. (It should be noted that the latest research shows that the various Alzheime's drugs, like Aricept, have proven disappointing, with little real benefit and often distressing side effects.) When Dr. Newport couldn't get her husband into a drug trial for a new Alzheimer's medication, she started researching the mechanism behind Alzheimer's.
She discovered that with Alzheimer's disease, certain brain cells may have difficulty utilizing glucose (made from the carbohydrates we eat), the brain's principal source of energy.
...
Dr. Newport learned that the ingredient in the drug trial which was showing so much promise was simply MCT oil derived from coconut oil or palm kernel oil, and that a dose of 20 grams (about 20 ml or 4 teaspoons) was used to produce these results. When MCT oil is metabolized, the ketones which the body creates may, according to the latest research, not only protect against the incidence of Alzheimer's, but may actually reverse it. Moreover, this is also a potential treatment for Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, multiple sclerosis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease), drug-resistant epilepsy, brittle type I diabetes, and type II (insulin-resistant) diabetes.
So Mr. Newport, not being able to get into the drug trial, started taking the coconut oil twice a day. At this point, he could barely remember how to draw a clock. Two weeks after adding coconut oil to his diet, his drawing improved. After 37 days, Steve's drawing gained even more clarity. The oil seemed to "lift the fog", and in the first sixty days, Dr. Newport saw remarkable changes in him: every morning he was alert and happy, talkative, making jokes. His gait was 'still a little weird', but his tremor was no longer very noticeable. He was able to concentrate on things that he wanted to do around the house and in the yard and stay on task, whereas before coconut oil he was easily distractible and rarely accomplished anything unless he was directly supervised.
Over the next year, the dementia continued to reverse itself: he is able to run again, his reading comprehension has improved dramatically, and his short-term memory is improving. He often brings up events that happened days to weeks earlier and relays telephone conversations with accurate detail.
