Benefit from my exceptional training and experience

Dr Bredesen and Jen Felix

Dr. Bredesen and me, Jen Felix, in 2018.

I’ve been assisting Bredesen-trained integrative, functional, and naturopathic doctors by coaching their prevention and ReVERSE™ patients since January 2018.  My ongoing clinical experience with patients who successfully reverse subjective/mild cognitive impairment and early Alzheimer’s disease continues to develop my knowledge and skills.

As a Qualified ReCODE Report™ Practitioner, I have completed “Reversing Cognitive Decline Advanced Clinical Training” in the scientific, medical, and lifestyle underpinnings of all aspects of the Bredesen Protocol™ taught by Dr. Dale Bredesen and his colleagues from the Institute for Functional Medicine [IFM].  I’m listed as a Bredesen-trained practitioner for subscribers of the PreCODE™ and ReVERSE™ programs from Apollo Health.  My brain health training continues with monthly practitioner updates and my review of important relevant research publications.

 

I have MoCA Certification for administering and scoring the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, one of the assessments of Dr. Bredesen’s “cognoscopy”.  In addition, I’ve completed the Weill Cornell Medicine lessons in “The Clinical Practice of Alzheimer’s Prevention”  and “Nudge Tactics for Health Coaching” to enrich my brain health coaching expertise and proficiency.
