My Training

You can benefit from my unique combination of training and experience

Dr Bredesen and Jen Felix

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

I’ve been assisting Bredesen-trained integrative and naturopathic doctors by coaching their ReCODE™ patients since January 2018.  This ongoing clinical experience helping patients reverse subjective/mild cognitive impairment and early Alzheimer’s disease has been vital to me becoming a more effective coach.

As a Qualified ReCODE Report™ Practitioner, I completed training in the scientific, medical, and lifestyle underpinnings of all aspects of the Bredesen ReCODE Protocol™.  Dr. Bredesen and his colleagues from the Institute for Functional Medicine provided the “Reversing Cognitive Decline Advanced Clinical Training”.  You can find me listed as a Bredesen-trained practitioner when you subscribe to either the ReCODE™ or ReVERSE™ program from AHNP Precision Health (formerly MPI Cognition).


I have MoCA Certification for administering and scoring the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, one of the assays of Dr. Bredesen’s “Cognoscopy”.
