I find this fascinating. I am one of those who think that there are remedies for most of what ails us out there in nature and that most of what ails us is of our own doing. Fake, processed foods, GE and GMO monstrosities… all of that, just the processing kills the goodness even without GMOs involved.

Most of the species of foods that our parents and grandparents ate are extinct at our own, on-purpose hand, tomatoes, potatoes, stuff like that. Food grown now has only about 20% of the nutrition in it than the foods we ate even as recently as my younger years did. Kids today have no idea what a tomato or apple is supposed to taste like. Seriously.

There may be a connection to aluminum in dementia as well, so avoid it.

I am also one of those who feel strongly that greed and profit affects medical research much more than helping people does. Cures are low on the list, the treatment of symptoms is high upon it. How often is the phrase “You’ll have to take this for the rest of your life” doled out? A lot. Sometimes its for real, but very often not so much. The importance of diet and exercise that can reverse many conditions is not mentioned as that would reduce profits. I used to take Lipitor and some other stuff. They gave me that line mentioned above. No need anymore. My aunt’s pills garner Big Pharma well over $1,000 a month. Multiply that by all the dementia sufferers.

And that is just one condition we suffer from. Treat the symptoms… don’t fix it. I find it loathsome.

The video in this thread features Ken Lightburn, the president of Nature’s Approved, a health supplement producer, doing an interview with Dr. Mary Newport, a medical doctor and her husband Steve, who is, apparently, now suffering a lot less. I decided I should post this as regulars will know that I am quite sensitive to the dementia subject since I am the full time caregiver to my 89 year old aunt who is at an advanced stage of this exceptionally frightening condition. Figured as well, since hardly anyone ever clicks on anything around here, to post all 6 parts for your convenience.

As soon as I get some loot I will be buying some coconut oil, regardless of her advanced stage, just because. I will also be getting some for my consumption.

6. Dr. Theodore VanItalie of Harvard and Columbia University: “My view of the ketone ester story is that – if the results in human subjects bear out the findings in laboratory animals – they could well be the major advance in nutrition in the 21st century.”
