The Coconut-Oil-Dementia Diet

Dr. Anderson advocates coconut oil for his nursing home’s dementia diet.

He explores 3 benefits:

  1. Coconut oil is rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT). The liver quickly converts MCTs to ketones, providing a quick “backup fuel” to the brain. This can be helpful in dementia, where the brain often suffers from a lack of energy from its regular “fuel”, glucose.
  2. Coconut oil offers a low-carb solution to insulin resistance from diabetes. (Type-2 diabetes is common in seniors with dementia. In addition, Alzheimer’s is sometimes called Type-3 diabetes.)
  3. Dr. Anderson sees this improving the problems of:
    • Agitation
    • Behavior
    • Polypharmacology (Too many pills).

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chafe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. Google gets a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia every 7 minutes. That can overwhelm anyone looking for help. This site filters out, focuses on and offers only the best information. it has helped hundreds of thousands of people since it debuted in 2007. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
