Alzheimer's disease is a frightening prospect for those who are faced with it, as well as their families. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia, and it is a degenerative brain disease that leads to memory loss and cognitive decline. Alzheimer's disease is thought to be irreversible and incurable. However, there is new hope on the horizon.
After more than thirty years of medical research, Dr. Dale Bredesen, the Chief Science Officer of Apollo Health, and his team of researchers have established an approach called the Bredesen Protocol®. Because Alzheimer's disease is characterized by six different subtypes, the Bredesen Protocol targets these changes in the brain, aiming to reverse and prevent subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and early Alzheimer’s disease.
At The Genomic Athlete, Dr. Trevor Turner is a ReCODE 2.0™ Certified Provider. At his state-of-the-art practice in Miami, FL, Dr. Turner is able to utilize the Bredesen Protocol to help his patients optimize their cognitive abilities, ultimately reverse the progress of dementia, and take back their lives from cognitive decline.

According to Apollo Health,
“The goal [of the Bredesen Protocol®] is to change your biochemistry to provide optimal conditions for your brain to thrive.”
More than 36 factors contribute to the “downsizing” of the brain that occurs during the progression of dementia, including:
All of these factors can be addressed by using the strategies outlined in the Bredesen Protocol®.
When you receive ReCODE from Dr. Turner, you’ll have access to:
Using these distinct, yet complementary strategies, Dr. Turner can help you create neuroplasticity – that is, the ability of the brain to heal, grow new neurons and synaptic connections, in response to stimuli.
As a ReCODE Certified Provider, Dr. Trevor Turner is able to work with those who have already been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease to reverse the signs of cognitive decline. However, it’s important to remember that the Bredesen Protocol® is most successful when used in the early stages of cognitive decline, including early-stage Alzheimer's disease.
If you’re beginning ReCODE during the later stages of dementia, you may not see the results of someone who is early-stage. That said, Dr. Bredesen himself has seen dramatic improvements in patients in the later stages of Alzheimer’s, even if they haven’t made a full recovery.
The protocol is personalized for each patient, as each person's experience with Alzheimer's is unique. The treatment plan includes lifestyle changes, dietary changes, nutritional supplements, and cognitive rehabilitation.
