"More than 6.5 million people in the United States suffer from Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases. Dr. Mary T. Newport's husband, Steve, was one of them. In Alzheimer's Disease: What If There Was a Cure?, Dr. Newport shares Steve's story-how he fell into the abyss that is Alzheimer's disease and was able to climb back out to enjoy a nearly four-year reprieve from the disease, thanks to a dietary intervention with coconut oil and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil. Since Steve's remarkable turnaround from early-onset Alzheimer's in 2008, Dr. Newport has communicated with hundreds of people and their caregivers dealing with neurodegenerative diseases. In addition to detailing the most recent research on the links between Alzheimer's and many common medications, Dr. Newport illustrates how infection, inflammation, and genetic makeup may affect an individual's response to fatty-acid therapy. She also covers the recent advances in imaging technologies, which have made it possible to detect subtle changes in the brain a decade or more before a person develops obvious symptoms, giving at-risk individuals the opportunity to take preventive measures. While the cause of Alzheimer's disease is not known, Dr. Newport's research offers a message of hope and shows how adopting certain lifestyle changes could prevent, delay, or otherwise alter the course of the disease"-- Provided by publisher.
