A New Project
Dr. Dale Bredesen published his first article presenting this protocol to reverse cognitive decline about 3 years ago. Since then, he has offered courses for practitioners interested in applying the protocol with their patients. I attended one of his courses about 1 year ago. But prior to that, I had been a functional medicine practitioner for about 5 years, and during that time, applied many of the same procedures to reverse a number of other illnesses.
In the summer of 2017, Dr. Bredesen published his book, "The End of Alzheimer's". This has raised the visibility of this protocol, and we find many people excited to try it.
In my experience so far applying the protocol, I find that it is very complicated and that patients need support to go through the steps. It is also very expensive because of the work that we must do to keep up with lab testing, with new supplements and treatments.
Typically, patients have a fairly large number of problems. Each problem isn't dangerous or disabling, but together, they add up to create the memory loss, trouble with planning, or calculation, or general functioning.
I think that what will make the Bredesen protocol affordable and accessible is some kind of group program, and so this is my first attempt to create this.
If you want to come with me on this journey, please sign up to the mailing list, and I will update you when I have more ready to view. I anticipate that I will first create a free video so I can lay out the plan and you can decide if it fits your needs.
Then I will create a series of videos - maybe 12 - that go through the steps of the protocol. We have to address diet quality, exercise, sleep etc. first, so that subsequent steps don't cause health problems. It is likely that the online protocol will take a lot longer than it would in the office. Thus it is most well-suited to mild cases of cognitive decline and to people who are not yet declining, but are taking steps to ensure that they keep a "functional brain."
These step-by-step videos will be available for a fee, to be determined, and my plan is to roll out the whole program in January 2018.
Please comment and let me know what your needs are, your concerns, and your hopes. Then I can tailor this evolving project.
