The Power of Ketones: Ginny talks again
Jonny and his Gramma Ginny 3:07 minute video, filmed May 2 & 4, 2018 – WATCH HERE
People often ask me if it is worth trying ketone salts and ketone esters in the latest stages of Alzheimer’s and other dementias. This video suggests it could be…
Jonny Bonilla-Bowman, a nursing student, takes small amounts of the ester for his traumatic brain injury. In May of 2018, Jonny gave his 97-year-old grandma, Virginia Bowman, who was diagnosed with dementia some years earlier, a larger (28-30 ml = 14 to 15 grams betahydroxybutyrate) dose of the ester. The results of the first dose led him to film her on the second and fourth days.

OTHER NEW STUDIES ON MEMORY IMPAIRMENT
from Dr. Stephen Cunnane and Associates – Alzheimer’s & Dementia April 2019 – MCT Oil increases brain energy as ketones and improves scores on some memory tests in people with mild cognitive impairment.
If the Keto Diet Can Put Type 2 Diabetes into Complete Remission, Why Not TYPE 3 DIABETES – ALZHEIMER’S?
68-year old active but morbidly obese man (NOT my husband!!) with type 2 diabetes and mild Alzheimer’s reverses poorly-controlled diabetes to normal, markedly improves on memory testing (from 23 to 29 of 30 points on MoCA test), improves triglycerides and all cholesterol results and loses 15 pounds with 10-week ketogenic diet! The author shared with me that his average daily ketone level was 1.0 mmol/L which is considered “mild nutritional ketosis”. Most people could achieve this by eating less than 50 grams of carbs per day and about 50% or more of daily calories as fat (6.5 tablespoons per day equivalent of fats and oils on an 1800-calorie per day diet). Coconut and MCT oil as part of this fat can help achieve and sustain this level of ketosis. Clinical trials using ketogenic diet to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s are underway in several locations.
In, 2008, my husband Steve was “pre-diabetic” before starting coconut oil and then MCT oil for early onset Alzheimer’s, as we increased over several months to 9 to 11 tablespoons per day divided into four meals/snacks with food and reduced sugars and starchy foods, effectively a ketogenic diet, he continued to improve steadily over the first year and enjoyed almost four years of better quality of life. Did this reverse both pre-type 2 diabetes and type 3 diabetes/Alzheimer’s? See Steve’s Story on the Home page.
71-year old female ApoE4 carrier with mild Alzheimer’s and metabolic syndrome with insulin resistance treated with a ten-week ketogenic diet and had remarkable improvement in fasting blood sugar, insulin, HbA1C, cholesterol and triglyceride profile, and her MoCA test for memory improved from 21 (mild Alzheimer’s) to nearly normal score of 28 of 30 points.

Ketone Ester’s: What, Why and How?
Information about the ketone ester invented by Dr. Richard Veech, just available to the public in 2018. My husband Steve had dramatic improvement and stabilized for twenty more months while taking this ketone ester in a pilot study of one person, published in Alzheimer’s and Dementia in 2015. Read article on What, Why and How of Ketone Esters before purchasing to learn more about the risks and benefits. Take article to your doctor to educate and help with monitoring.
More than 2000 doses of the R-3-hydroxybutyl/R-3-hydroxybutyrate Veech ketone ester were given over 28 days to 24 volunteers ages 19 to 70 at large doses of 25 grams three times per day. There were only a few mild adverse events in 2,016 drinks – 6 reported nausea for one dose, 3 reported mild headache, 1 reported diarrhea, and 1 reported abdominal discomfort.
This is a very large dose three times a day, comparable to what my husband Steve took for several years. Many people with Alzheimer’s and other memory impairment are reporting good response to much lower doses – for some, this is 10 ml (1 levels teaspoons, which is 5 grams of ketone BHB for KetoneAid) once or twice a day. Many people report better sleep with just 2 to 5 ml (1/2 to 1 teaspoon).
