Vrajlal Parmar had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
After taking a Mini Mental State Examination test used to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease, doctors informed the 67-year-old’s family that he was “too severely affected to score anything at all,” according to the Daily Mail. A healthy person would have scored 30 on the test.
In a letter to Vrajlal’s family, doctors at the Cognitive Disorders Clinic at University College London in the UK said that Vrajlal’s condition was so bad that any drug treatment would be ineffective.
“Dad was so far gone he couldn’t do anything for himself,” Vrajlal’s son Kal Parmar, told the Daily Mail.
“He couldn’t wash himself, dress or go to the toilet without help. He had to be watched all the time – the idea of him catching a bus, even a special bus to a dementia centre, was out of the question,” Kal said.
After some research, he started mixing a spoonful of coconut oil to his father’s meals twice a day.
Kal said that the difference in his father was huge. Since he started taking coconut oil in July, his symptoms have drastically improved.
“Before we started him on coconut oil, Dad’s speech was gone and he couldn’t remember his name or his date of birth,” Kal explained. “Now you can have a simple conversation with him. We go for walks.”
“He even remembers his national insurance number. We’re so happy,” he added.
