Mark Hyman, MD
Uploaded on Dec 29, 2008
www.ultramind.com -- Clip from upcoming public television special on The UltraMind Solution in which Mark Hyman, M.D. discusses how he reversed dementia in one of his patients. Using the techniques from The UltraMind Solution, Dr. Hyman worked to optimize this patient's underlying biology, which allowed the patient's body to automatically fix his brain. Dr. Hyman discusses a special molecule and a special supplement that are critical in this process. A sneak preview of the book is available at www.ultramind.com
Alzheimer's Disease - What If There Was a Cure ? The Story of Ketones
Using coconut oil in conjugation with a ketogenic diet resulted in improvement of Mr. Newport's dementia symptoms. In patients with Alzheimer's dementia, the brain is unable to use glucose for fuel due to impaired insulin. Ketones however get into the brain cells with out insulin and thus are a better source of fuel for the brain.
Researchers studied 17 different levels of sugar in people. Learn of the direct connection they found between sugar and dementia. Find out why a good sugar level matters as much to healthy people as it does to diabetics.

He practiced at St. Vincent’s Hospital in New York before returning to Washington to found the Physicians Committee.
Type 3 Diabetes: The Connection between Alzheimer’s and Metabolic Syndrome
Scientists now calls Alzheimer’s disease “Type 3 diabetes.” What’s the link between Alzheimer’s and diabetes? Well, new research shows insulin resistance, or what I call diabesity (from eating too many carbs and sugar and not enough fat) is one of major factors that starts the brain-damage cascade, which robs the memory of over half the people in their 80s, leading to a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.

Ketogenic Diet Improves Memory & Brain Health w/ Jan Venter, MD
Published on Oct 4, 2016
Welcome to episode #158, with Dr. Jan Venter! He is a Functional Medicine and brain health specialist.
We discuss how to improve brain and mitochondrial function with a ketogenic diet.
Dr. Venter also shares research about measuring and tracking brain function.
02:05 Dr. Venter’s Brain Health Journey: Dr. Venter saw many patients from vehicle accidents with traumatic brain injury. There was no effective means of assessment. Treatment was a mixture of two antidepressants and hope for recovery. This was not good enough for Dr. Venter, so he dug deeper. A friend was using neurofeedback for evaluating fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. It was a non-invasive way to see within the brain. EEG also intrigued him. The equipment became cheaper and smaller. It is a way to capture live data and compare it to a database to evaluate brain health: cognition, depression, concussion, ADD and more. 04:39 Neurofeedback and Quantitative EEG. 08:34 Tools We Can Use to Asses Brain Health.
11:46 Cogniscope for Young Athletes: Dr. Fenter recommends getting a baseline brain function evaluation, or cogniscope, at about age 10 or 12. For executives (and the rest of us), 35 to 40 is a good time. These are important for anyone in a contact sport.
21:18 The State of Flow: The book The Rise of Superman by Steven Kotler hooked Dr. Venter into flow. The author had Lyme disease. He was depressed, suicidal and unable to write. He started surfing and entered into a state where his brain began working again. The process of flow is an optimum state of mind where you feel your best and perform your best. After a year of surfing and flow, the author’s Lyme disease began to reverse. In a state of flow, your brain releases a healing cocktail of dopamine, anandamide, and serotonin. There are 17 triggers for releasing flow. Many are social triggers. Public speaking is one. Novel and high environmental content is another. This can be developed in a work environment and is being used at some high tech businesses to bring about creativity.
Your Brain ONLY Needs Glucose (Carbohydrates) is a MYTH!

Take Dr. Berg's Advanced Evaluation Quiz: http://bit.ly/AdvEval Your report will then be sent via email analyzing 104 potential symptoms, giving you a much deeper insight into the cause-effect relationship of your body issues. It's free and very enlightening.
Dr. Berg explains that the brain CAN run on other types of fuel, specifically ketones from our fat stores. Your body also can convert both protein and fat to glucose and does this through a special mechanism called gluconeogensis. So you don't have to consume glucose, sugar or carbohydrate directly to get glucose to the brain.

Mary Newport - Medium Chain Triglycerides and Ketones: An Alternative Fuel for Alzheimer's
Published on Mar 19, 2013
Plaques and tangles are known to be hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease, but another important aspect of Alzheimer's is that it may be a type of diabetes of the brain or "type 3 diabetes," and is associated with decreased glucose uptake in the brain. Diabetes of the brain develops gradually over at least one to two decades before symptoms become obvious. Other neurodegenerative diseases share the problem of decreased glucose uptake in the brain. Fortunately, the brain can use ketone bodies as an alternative fuel to glucose during starvation. Ketogenic diets have been successfully used for nearly a century to treat drug resistant epilepsy in children. Medium chain fatty acids are partly converted in the liver to ketones bodies, which readily cross the blood brain barrier and are used by the brain. Mild ketosis from consuming MCT oil has been shown to produce cognitive improvement in nearly half of people with Alzheimer's. Ketone esters that will produce higher levels of ketosis and potentially greater improvement are on the horizon.
Mary T. Newport, M.D. grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, received an Honors Bachelor of Arts degree from Xavier University and graduated from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in 1978. She trained in Pediatrics at Children's Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, and in Neonatology, the care of sick and premature newborns, at the Medical University Hospital in Charleston, SC. She has provided care to newborns in Florida since 1983 and is the founding medical director of the newborn intensive care unit at Spring Hill Regional Hospital, practicing there as a member of the All Children's/John Hopkins Specialty Physicians group. She previously served as medical director at Mease Hospital Dunedin, after founding the NICU there in 1987.
Dr. Newport has been married to Steve Newport since 1972 and they have two daughters and a grandson. She is also caregiver for Steve, who suffers from early onset Alzheimer's disease. In July 2008, she wrote an article that has become disseminated world-wide on the internet, "What If There Was a Cure for Alzheimer's Disease and No One Knew?" and is author of a book released in October 2011, (Alzheimer's Disease: What If There Was a Cure?). Her book conveys the story of a dietary intervention that helped her husband and, now, many other people with Alzheimer's and certain neurodegenerative diseases, as well as the science of ketones and how to incorporate medium chain fatty acids into the diet. Dr. Newport has given numerous radio interviews and lectures on this subject.
Alzheimer’s, Coconut Oil, MCTs & Ketones – Dr. Mary Newport
All forms of Dementia are on the rise, in fact, the number of people with dementia is expected to triple by 2050. Dr. Bergman explains what is causing this tremendous rise in dementia and how to reverse cognitive decline.
At the Institute of Nutritional Medicine and Cardiovascular Research, our aftercare program for Traumatic Brain Injury, PTST, Dementia, and Alzheimer's patients uses genetic and metabolic testing to treat, heal, and even grow new brain tissue. Many patients are lost after the initial treatment and are left to find answers on their own. With this one-of-a-kind program, Neurological centers can increase patient retention while adding an additional revenue stream to their current practice.
At the Institute, our cutting-edge research, metabolic testing, and advanced imaging pushes innovative performance solutions into the hands of companies, physicians, and athletes
Ketogenic Diet Improves Memory & Brain Health w/ Jan Venter, MD
21:52Autism Similarities with Chronic Diseases Dr. Hyman: I learned this from you, Sid, that if you’ve seen one kid with autism, you’ve seen one kid with autism. I think there is no such thing as autism. There are autisms. There are common themes that show up. There are certain patterns of dysregulation in the system. I think autism is an interesting disease because it’s almost like a microcosm or hologram for everything that goes wrong across all chronic diseases. You are a pediatrician, but I’ve taken care of people all along the age spectrum and I’ve seen many patients with Alzheimer’s or early cognitive impairment or mild cognitive impairment, and the patterns that you see, the disturbances in the biology and the insults are often very much similar. The genetics are similar. The issues around methylation are similar. The toxicity issues are similar. You see these kinds of patterns. I began to realize that whatever is going on in autism is just a degree of magnitude greater than we see in all these other chronic illnesses, but it is a lot of the same thing. The things we often see is about 95% of them have gut issues. 70% have immunologic dysregulation. They have latent infections. They have heavy metal toxins. They have impaired genetics around methylation and sulfation, which is critical at dealing with oxidative stress and detoxification and neurotransmitter function. We see severe nutrient deficiencies, often because of dietary idiosyncrasy or because of their gut function or for various reasons or because of increased needs for some immunic-genetic need. We see these patterns that we actually can work with.
47:59Ketogenic Diet as Therapy Dr. Hyman: The question isn’t what is the brain run best on and how does the brain function. It seems that the brain actually does great on ketones and we’ve learned that from work with epilepsy where one of the standard treatments for treatment-resistant epilepsy and extremely high fat, we call ketogenic diet, which is like 70% fat, 5% carbs, 20 or 30% protein, and that actually allows the brains to stop being irritable and start to function. I’ve seen this across the spectrum, like in Alzheimer’s patients or early Alzheimer’s patients who are going down, it helps wake them up. Autistic kids who are having issues that are resistant to other therapies, it’s one of those things that I think about trying and I think in schizophrenic patients, there have been case studies that, in fact I just saw a schizophrenic patient this week and started her on a ketogenic diet. I should be eating at McDonald’s. I am curious to see how it’s going to work for her. If you look in the literature, there are case reports, there are anecdotes to N of 1, and I think we are going to begin to see how we can preserve brain function or enhance brain function through the use of often challenging, but very effective diets.
