According to Lorie Johnson, CBN's Medical Reporter on the 700 Club today, for diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease and possibly Lou Gehrig's Disease, coconut oil could be the miracle cure. It appears that coconut oil works in the liver to release ketones that serve as an alternative fuel source to insulin for the body, thus making it also helpful for diabetes patients. The mechanism behind coconut oil is, that it is a natural antibacterial that also helps herpes and HIV patients as well since it aids in fighting bacteria so your body's natural reserves of antibodies can be freed up to fight these diseases. In the same way coconut oil can be effective in treating dementia, multiple sclerosis, ALS and autism.
Dr. Mary Newport and Dr. David Morgan who appeared on the 700 Club also find promise in coconut oil and are studying how it helps Alzheimer's. Unfortunately funds are limited in further research on such a miraculous discovery. Considering the budget for medical research, 5% goes to cancer research, 2% goes to heart research compared to a mere .3% going to Alzheimer's research. They advocate more funds for research in light of this discovery to help find a cure for these and many other diseases. You can contact your state and local representatives to demand more funding for this important research.
With our medical system on overload with all these diseases, rising health insurance rates and the Medicare program in dire straights financially, it is critical to curb medical expenses for future generations to enjoy the same benefits as we do now.
