A neurologist in California, Dr. Dale Bredesen, has been reversing Alzheimer’s, Mild Cognitive Impairment, and Dementia since 2012. He published on 10 patients, who had improved their cognitive function, in 2014. He published again on another 10 patients, with one being a continuation of the first group. In 2017, he published the personalized protocol in a book titled, “The End of Alzheimer’s: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline”, By 2018, he published another paper on the results of 100 people using his protocol to reverse cognitive decline. Finally in 2020, he was granted a clinical trial, which resulted in 84% of participants improving their cognitive function. For the first time in history, there are Alzheimer’s survivors!
The Bredesen Protocol
We, at PAASI Family Therapy, have been studying under Dr. Bredesen to learn his protocol that is personalized for every person. Here are the basics of the protocol:
- Cognitive assessments (MoCA & CNS Vital Signs
- Lab tests – “the Cognoscopy”
- Dietary requirements
- Brain training
- Elimination of stress
- Specific herbal supplements
The process begins with the intake appointment, at which time we fully explain the process and administer the cognitive assessments. Understand that this will be a collaborative process with you, your doctor, and your therapist. You will need to work with your doctor to obtain your lab tests and results, as well as work to bring all suboptimal lab tests up to the optimal range. You will work with a PAASI therapist or coach to begin making adjustments to your diet and exercise regimen, brain training (neurofeedback), and sleep patterns. For reversal, it is a strict regimen, which is why we really urge everyone to start with prevention today.
