Dr. Bredesen emphasizes how “DESS”—Diet, Exercise, Sleep, and Stress resilience—are essential to healing the brain and preventing dementia. In addition, brain training is important to stimulate brain plasticity and rejuvenation. Supplements and detoxification may also play a prominent role. Developing a strong sense of meaning, positive relationships, and connection with something bigger than oneself additionally fosters true holistic health and longevity. A clinical assessment of your history, lab tests, symptoms, and presentation along with a ReCODE Report™ can reveal root causes—such as inflammation, glycotoxicity, lack of trophic support, toxicity, vascular issues, or trauma— to guide medical treatment.

Over-estimating the extent of blips in cognition has people living with undue worry.
Therefore, it’s wise to get an objective measure of cognitive functioning via a clinically-validated cognitive assessment. Getting a quantitative measure of what’s normal cognition is a valuable part of your “cognoscopy” for future comparison and before any significant cognitive problems arise.
