The Bredesen RECODE Protocol
Dr. Bredesen found 36 factors that contribute to the development of Alzheimer's. Addressing even 10-12 of them can reverse cognitive decline, but time is of the essence.
Action must start before you develop Alzheimer's. Changes need to be made at the onset of symptoms when treatment and support can make a big impact. Ignoring it or thinking it's inevitable is not the answer. You can empower yourself to make a difference in your cognitive health, and I can help.
If you think you might be at risk, schedule a Discovery Session with me and let’s chat.
Alzheimer's is not a simple disease, which is why every drug trial has failed. Changing your diet, identifying underlying infections, and reducing toxins can lessen your risk.
Don't wait for a diagnosis, the time is now.
Read this just published paper co-authored by Dr. Bredesen of results of 100 patients treated with the Bredesen protocol showing improvement.
Dr. Bredesen has identified 3 major types of Alzheimers:
Type 1- Inflammatory
This type is inflammatory (hot) and seen most often in people that carry one or two copies of the ApoE4 alleles. It tends to run in families. People with 2 copies have symptoms that start showing around the late forties to fifties. People with 1 copy have symptoms tend to show in the late fifties or sixties. Those with no ApoE4 genes, the typical onset is in the sixties to seventies.
Begins with loss of ability to store new information
Can often remember long term memories and can speak, articulate, communicate, spell and calculated well
Inflammatory markers in blood work
Responds quickest to RECODE protocol
Type 2- Cold
Type 2 is atrophic (cold) and is also seen in people that carry one or two copies of the ApoE4 alleles. Symptoms appear usually about a decade later than type 1.
Also begins with loss of ability to store new information
Can often remember long term memories and can speak, articulate, communicate, spell and calculate well
No evidence of inflammation-markers may actually be lower than normal
Low levels of hormones in lab testing
Usually responds slower to protocol than Type 1
Type 1.5- glycotoxic (sweet)
Type 1.5 is a combination of type 1 & 2. People with type 1.5 tend to have symptoms of both type 1 and type 2. They usually have inflammation like type 1 and the reduced support for brain synapses of type 2.
High glucose levels
High insulin, or insulin resistance
Type 3- Toxic
This type tends to occur more in the people that carry the ApoE3 alleles rather than the ApoE4's.
Doesn't usually run in families or if a relative did develop Alzheimer's it was usually after age 80
Usually strikes at a young age, with symptoms occurring in the late forties to early sixties, usually following high stress
Usually begins with difficulties involving numbers, speech or organizing
Memory loss is both short and long term, as well as procedural-how to do things
ADD or depression are common with this type
Difficulty with math such as calculating a tip, or paying bills, etc
Often diagnosed with something else initially
Hormonal abnormalities are common-thyroid and adrenal dysfunction
High toxic levels of chemicals in blood or hair, as well as mycotoxins from mold
High zinc to copper ratio due to low zinc and high copper in blood
The dietary approach for cognitive health and Alzheimer's prevention is bio-individual. A thorough investigation of your symptoms, food, and lifestyle is necessary.
Working on these contributors of Alzheimer's is also protective of other diseases also.
