Is a regimen of daily ingestion of Coconut Oil (CO) an effective treatment for Parkinson’s Disease (PD)? If effective means effective cure, then the answer is NO. Is there something better? Again the answer is NO!
. Providing protection to or stimulating the regrowth of any part of the body's nervous system. No currently available treatment for Parkinson's disease has been proven to provide a neuroprotective or neuroregenerative effect; all available Parkinson's disease treatments are symptomatic, meaning that they mask the symptoms while the underlying disease continues to progress."
There are treatments that are expensive, advertised, peer-reviewed, clinical trialed, endorsed, and recommended by the establishment. None has shown an ability to extend the life of a Parkinson’s patient by as much as a day. My expectation is that Coconut oil will be found to have some symptomatic benefit for many PWP but that it will not reverse the condition or cure it.
My personal experience is that 4-8 T of CO each day is providing me with an improved quality of life, and that degradations due to my PD are continuing to advance beyond what could be expected form advancing years alone. I have communicated with several people with Parkinson's (PWP) who claim a similar benefit from CO and with a few who have experienced no benefit.
