(NaturalNews) A doctor says that taking just four teaspoons of coconut oil per day reversed her husband's dementia.

Mary Newport is the medical director of the neonatal intensive care unit of Spring Hill Regional Hospital in Florida. In 2003, her husband Steve began showing symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.

"The symptoms of Alzheimer's disease are progressive mental deterioration characterized by an inability to carry out daily activities, a loss of cognitive functions, and a loss of memory functions," writes Tom Bohager in his book Everything You Need to Know About Enzymes.

Alzheimer's disease is fatal, and has no cure. The various drugs on the market have shown only limited effectiveness at slowing the progression of the disease. Indeed, Newport's husband continued to worsen even after being prescribed three different drugs.

"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," Newport said.

Newport began researching the mechanisms of Alzheimer's disease in the hopes of finding alternative treatments. She learned that researchers attribute many of the disease's symptoms to the starvation of certain brain cells due to an inability to process glucose.

Researchers have wondered if supplying the brain with more energy from an alternative supply known as ketones might prevent this cell death and thereby halt the disease. The easiest way to get the body to produce ketones is to consume medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), a type of fat.

Newport learned that MCT oil derived from coconut or palm kernel oil has shown great promise in treating Alzheimer's, so she began feeding coconut oil to her husband. Within two days, he was showing signs of improvement. Within 60 days, he was once again alert, happy and making jokes. Within a year, he regained the ability to complete self-directed tasks and to run, and experienced great improvements in reading comprehension and short-term memory.

Scans confirm that the atrophy in his brain has come to a complete halt.
