81: The Ketone Cure with Dr. Mary Newport

Our guest this week is Dr. Mary Newport. She’s a neonatologist and author who has written several books on the Ketogenic diet including her latest, The Complete Book of Ketones

Mary discovered the ketogenic diet when her late husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease and she found that a combination of coconut oil and MCT oil improved symptoms dramatically. We discuss all of the metabolic and neurological implications of the Ketogenic diet as well as the reasons for the recent surge in popularity.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is curious about the Ketogenic diet or for people who want to really understand all of the science behind its benefits.

Other books by Mary Newport include The Coconut Oil & Low-Carb Solution and Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was a Cure?
