Mary T. Newport, M.D., a neonatal practitioner, has become an authority on Alzheimer's disease over the last ten years. In the course of researching scientific literature about Alzheimer's, she discovered studies involving medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and their natural source, coconut oil. That's when a lightbulb went on, and the doctor connected the dots between using MCT oil in newborn's formula to help babies thrive and using it to address Alzheimer's disease. After writing two well-received editions of Alz heimer's Disease: What If There Was a Cure? The Story of Ketones, Dr. Newport has now written this quick-start guide on how to integrate these life-restoring fatty acids into the diet. In addition to Alzheimer's disease, this dietary treatment can be used to counter other neurodegenerative diseases such as non-Alzheimer's dementias, Parkinson's, ALS, and multiple sclerosis. Dr. Newport was not the first to call Alzheimer's "a type of diabetes of the brain," but she firmly believes it is. Areas in the brain that test positive for Alzheimer's show insulin deficiency and resistance, which cause decreased glucose uptake in the cells, leading to cell malfunction and cell death. Because diet is the most important way to counter diabetes, Dr. Newport advocates a dietary intervention based on a whole-food, high-fat, lowcarbohydrate diet. To make the dietary change easy, Dr. Newport provides six choices that can be used alone or in combination for integrating coconut and MCT oils into the diet. Dr. Newport is one of the world's strongest advocates for preventing and reversing neurological diseases of the brain. Her role in advancing a simple dietary intervention has already gone a long way toward changing the lives of both patients and caregivers.

Over 35 million people have dementia today. Each year 4.6 million new cases occur world-wide -- one new case every 7 seconds. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia. Parkinson's disease, another progressive brain disorder, affects about 4 million people world-wide. Millions more suffer with other neurodegenerative disorders. The number of people affected by these destructive diseases continues to increase every year. Dementia and other forms of neurodegeneration are not a part of the normal ageing process. The brain is fully capable of functioning normally for a lifetime, regardless of how long a person lives. While ageing is a risk factor for neurodegeneration, it is not the cause! Dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders are disease processes that can be prevented and successfully treated. This book outlines a program using ketone therapy and diet that is backed by decades of medical and clinical research and has proven successful in restoring mental function and improving both brain and overall health. You will learn how to prevent and even reverse symptoms associated with Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple sclerosis (MS), Huntington's disease, epilepsy, diabetes, stroke, and various forms of dementia. The information in this book is useful not only for those who are suffering from neurodegenerative disease but for anyone who wants to be spared from ever encountering one or more of these devastating afflictions. These diseases don't just happen overnight. They take years, often decades, to develop. In the case of Alzheimer's disease, approximately 70 percent the brain cells responsible for memory are destroyed before symptoms become noticeable. You can stop Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases before they take over your life. The best time to start is now.

Perhaps most significant, studies show that proper diet may make a real difference, not only in slowing the progression of AD, but also in preventing it.
