Alzheimer's Treatment and Prevention
Dr. Dale Bredesen is a pioneer in the the research into Alzheimer's disease prevention, memory-loss disease prevention and memory-loss reversal. Alzheimer's Disease has many causes and begins decades before symptoms begin. With the help of modern testing and a Bredesen trained practitioner, emerging Alzheimer's subtypes can be identified and personalized support to prevent cognitive decline can be done.
The Bredesen Protocol is based on over three decades of Dr. Bredesen’s laboratory research, resulting in hundreds of peer-reviewed publications that have uncovered the biochemical mechanisms behind the erosion of memory associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The Bredesen Protocol offered through PreCODE (for prevention) and ReCODE (for reversal) has opened the door to new approaches to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease.
The Bredesen protocol uses a multi-faceted approach to preventing and reversing Alzheimer's disease and includes identifying genetic risk factors, using nutrition to treat and prevent inflammation and support brain health, identifies hormone and nutrient depletions, addresses inflammation in the body, identifies potential pathogens and toxin exposure and looks into sleep-related disorders which are known to greatly affect brain health.
The 3 most common types of Alzheimer's are:
Type 1 - Inflammatory
Elevated blood sugar and insulin levels are often a major driver of this sub-type resulting in ongoing inflammation that increases your risk of developing Alzheimer's.
Type 2 - Atrophic
When your body lacks the necessary support to maintain neural connections such as nutrients, hormones or nerve growth factor, this leads to the development of Alzheimer's.
Type 3 - Toxic
In today's society we are exposed to a number of toxins including metals, molds and others through household and personal care products. The combination of exposure as well as impaired ability to excrete toxins can lead to this type of Alzheimer's.

The PreCODE program is ideal for anyone interested in the prevention of cognitive decline and optimizing brain health. It is designed for adults of any age with a family history of dementia, risk factors such as pre-diabetes or inflammation or anyone over the age of 45.
The program entails cognitive and lab testing necessary to identify any risk factors that may contribute to cognitive decline. A personalized PreCODE report will be generated for you based on your test results. I will then put together a personalized treatment plan. This service includes an initial visit, 2 follow up visits over a 6 month period and 1 PreCODE report.
Please note that testing costs and PreCODE Membership on Apollo Health are NOT included in the cost of the package. Baseline lab testing is done through Apollo Health and costs are estimated around $334. To view the PreCODE Test Panel please see this link. You may choose to enroll in the PreCODE program through Apollo Health which will provide which will provide you with a plethora of resources including Q and A opportunities with Dr. Bredesen through monthly town halls, community forums, Brain HQ brain training, access to cognitive assessments to track your progress, a library of written and video guides for reversal of cognitive decline and a ReCODE mobile app compatible for apple devices. The cost for the annual PreCODE program on Apollo Health is $39.95 monthly.
The cost for the program is $650 which includes your PreCODE report, treatment plan, coaching sessions and personalized support throughout the program. Additional costs for testing and Apollo membership are paid separately through the Apollo website.
The ReCODE program is appropriate for individuals with active concerns of cognitive decline. The program entails cognitive and lab testing necessary to identify any risk factors that may contribute to cognitive decline. My focus is primarily on PreCode. If you are interested in the ReCode program and would like help finding a practitioner who specializes in this area, please reach out and I would be happy to share recommendations.
