Bredesen Program

The Bredesen Program at PALM Health is designed to prevent and reverse the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease using an individualized approach to diet, sleep, exercise, stress reduction, detoxification, and brain stimulation.

The Bredesen Protocol® helps prevent and reverse the symptoms of cognitive decline. It has opened the door to new approaches to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease, through the PreCODE Program (for prevention) and ReCODE Program (for reversal).

The protocol is based on over three decades of Dr. Dale Bredesen’s laboratory research, which has uncovered the biochemical mechanisms behind the erosion of memory associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

What is the Bredesen Protocol® used for, and how does it work?

Dr. Bredesen and his team at Apollo Health developed the PreCODE and ReCODE Programs, which through:

  • health history collection,
  • medical questionnaires,
  • laboratory testing, and
  • cognitive assessments
  • result in a unique and personalized treatment plan for each participant.

What is unique about the protocol?

Dr. Bredesen has identified over 36 factors (metabolic derangement, poor nutrient status, lack of trophic support, exposure to viruses, etc.) that can trigger “downsizing” in the brain, all of which can be addressed by using the Bredesen Protocol® designed to prevent cognitive decline and reverse the effects of subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and early Alzheimer’s disease.

What do I need to know about the Bredesen Protocol® at PALM Health?

Dr. Sita Kedia is one of the few neurologists in the country trained and certified as a Bredesen Protocol® practitioner. She is MoCA certified to do standardized cognitive testing for the Bredesen Protocol®.

Dr. Kedia and her team will walk you through the Bredesen Protocol® step by step to increase your chances of success. The program includes sessions with PALM integrative medicine providers as well as wellness services.
