Getting Started with ReCODE™


The Bredesen ReCODE Protocol™ is a comprehensive, personalized, evidence-based program to address the potential drivers of cognitive decline.

Dr. Bredesen emphasizes how “DESS”—Diet, Exercise, Sleep, and Stress management—are essential to healing the brain and preventing dementia. Brain training is important to stimulate brain plasticity and rejuvenation.  Multiple supplements and detoxification may also play a prominent role, especially if you’re already experiencing cognitive impairment. Developing a strong sense of meaning, positive relationships, emotional resilience, and connection with something bigger than oneself additionally fosters true holistic health and longevity.

Medical therapies may also be needed to treat underlying drivers of cognitive decline.  A clinical assessment of your history, lab test results, symptoms, and presentation along with a ReCODE Report™ can reveal root causes, such as inflammation, glycotoxicity, lack of trophic support, toxicity, or vascular issues.
