Welcome to Nurture Brain Health with Jen Felix.

How to Nurture a Healthy Brain copyright Jen Felix 2018

The holistic multi-modal therapy to prevent and reverse cognitive decline.

I help people feel cognitively sharp and full of vitality. 

We work together to achieve this through the foundational health practices (shown left) that create physical and psychological resilience. 

I’m on my third year assisting people with the Bredesen ReCODE Protocol™—the first clinically demonstrated therapy to reverse cognitive decline [see references 1, 2, 3].

Evidence-Based Lifestyle Medicine

bredesen case report

Bredesen et al. 2018 report documenting 100 cases of improved cognition.

Dr. Dale Bredesen’s 2020 and 2017 books describe his therapeutic approach—a personalized combination of the KetoFLEX 12/3™ diet, physical activity, stress management, quality sleep, brain training, toxin reduction, supplements, lab tests, and medical therapies guided by a ReCODE Report™ and a doctor.  Brain health can be further optimized by nurturing psychological and social well-being.

I have repeatedly witnessed reversal of cognitive impairment with good compliance to the Bredesen Protocol™ like those documented in the 100 case studies (shown right).  I look forward to publication of an ongoing clinical trial NCT03883633, expected in 2021.

Evidence-based prevention of Alzheimer's disease: systemic review

A 2020 systematic review and meta-analysis of 396 studies found credible evidence that low levels of exercise, less cognitive activity, poor stress management, depression, diabetes, excess body weight, poor sleep, and low vitamin C are modifiable risk factors to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. 

Conventional medicine newly acknowledges the value of lifestyle-related factors for preventing cognitive decline thanks to to mounting evidence (including the J-T Yu et al. 2020 meta-analysis shown right).   Yet, traditional healthcare doesn’t yet have practitioners with sufficient lifestyle medicine training, relevant resources, and the one-on-one support required for most patients to make multiple targeted lifestyle changes .  That’s where I come in.

I coach diet and lifestyle–the most cost-effective, evidence-based, and least invasive modalities that restore and maximize brain health.

To help you experience the positive health benefits of the Bredesen Protocol™ for yourself, I offer one-on-one coaching, online group coaching, and an in-person support group to make targeted diet and lifestyle changes easier, less expensive, and immediately doable.  My roles include:

Transformational healing often takes personal attention from an experienced coach specializing in brain healthPeople who partner with me:

  • regulate blood sugar and reverse pre-diabetes
  • lose weight (when overweight)
  • stop cognitive decline & improve their memory
  • reduce prescriptions needed due to restored health
  • and feel more energized

Over the long-term, an additional side benefit of these lifestyle changes is curtailing your of risk obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. 

“The most important person in the recovery of people with cognitive decline is…the health coach”

Experienced Brain Health Coaching with Integrity

Isaacson 2019 article

Isaacson et al 2019 clinical management of Alzheimer’s risk

PREVENTION: For those at the stage of preventing cognitive decline, I coach a brain healthy lifestyle either with or without a ReCODE Report™.  My coaching is informed by a synergy of ancestral health and modern medicine, notably including Dr. Isaacson’s clinical trial of a therapeutic multi-modal intervention to reduce Alzheimer’s risk.

REVERSAL: For people seeking recovery from existing cognitive impairment, I only coach the full Bredesen Protocol™ guided by  their doctor and ReCODE Report™.
