When Dr. Newport’s husband Steven was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, as a Doctor herself, she explored routine treatment options. But when his symptoms became so severe that he was not able to participate in clinical trials, her scientific deductions led to coconut oil. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Newport at the CHFA trade show in 2011.
At the time, coconut oil had already helped me with treating Blepharitis, so her story resonated with me. I have followed Dr. Newport’s progress online.
According to her website Dr. Newport has been successful in receiving grants for research at the University of South Florida (USF) Byrd Alzheimer Institute, where humane animal studies are in progress. In addition, a clinical trial of coconut oil in people with mild cognitive impairment is also underway.
Wishing Dr. Mary Newport continued success with her research!
