ALZ Survivor, Francis McNear, Shares the Story of His Recovery

Francis states, “Thanks to a recent breakthrough in dementia studies and treatment, I am currently recovering from early onset Alzheimer’s. That is correct. I am one of several thousand people in the United States following the recently developed Bredesen Protocol and, as a result, my memory and my life have been restored to order. In this book, I will take you on my journey and will tell you about the Bredesen Protocol that saved my life.  I also provide helpful information for caregivers and outline the different kinds of dementia. I believe that, once you have read this book, you will feel empowered, whether you are facing dementia yourself or are caring for someone who is. You are not...


Alzheimer’s Reversal In New Zealand – Client Testimonial on The Bredesen Protocol

Roy was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s type dementia in 2015. His wife, Trish, explains how his cognition and demeanour improved after just 4 months on The Bredesen Protocol 12 month Alzheimer’s Reversal Program.  Maria, a dedicated community advisor for Alzheimer’s Northland in New Zealand, explains this is the first time she has seen someone with dementia get better. Roy officially began the program November 2016.  To learn more about this Protocol, click on How Is This Possible?


Reversing The Effects of Alzheimer’s?

NBC special anchor Maria Shriver reports in a 2016 edition of the Brain Power TODAY series.  The Bredesen Program, a groundbreaking new treatment, is showing signs of reversing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. California neurologist Dale Bredesen says the program is designed to fix imbalances in the body, but warns that it is not a cure.  Meet Deborah who has reversed her cognitive decline using The Bredesen ProtocolTM.  Find more information regarding this Protocol here.


Listen to Julie G.’s Story & Journey to Health

At the early age of 49, Julie was experiencing the symptoms of cognitive decline.  Genetic testing revealed she is ApoE4 homozygote, meaning she carries two copies of the ApoE4 gene, increasing her chance of developing Alzheimer’s by 50-90%.  Through much research on her own, she began to implement dietary and lifestyle changes such as eating only organic food, adding supplements, cutting out toxins, exercising regularly, getting plenty of sleep, and doing brain training exercises.  The result – her cognition began to improve!  This was before she was able to see Dr. Perlmutter and eventually Dr. Bredesen for the proper testing and treatment.  You can read more about...


Surviving Alzheimer’s: One Woman’s Incredible Story

Sally isn’t the only one to reverse her cognitive decline. There are hundreds of people using this customized  treatment who now have their lives back!

abbreviation for Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s Disease
a type of dementia and a progressive disease of the brain that slowly causes impairment in memory and cognitive function. Alzheimer’s disease happens when the brain tries to protect itself from three metabolic and toxic threats:

1 - Inflammation (from infection, diet or other causes
2 - Decline and shortage of supportive nutrients, hormones and other brain-supporting molecules
3 - Toxic substances such as metals or biotoxins (poisons produced by microbes such as molds)

The protective response causes APP (Amyloid Precursor Protein, the long molecule that protrudes from neurons) to be cut into four fragments, including amyloid-beta, that downsize the neural network and eventually destroy synapses and neurons. When the APP molecule is cut into those four pieces, it is not cut into the two pieces that nourish and maintain synapses.

Alzheimer's disease is a state of the brain in which there is an imbalance between the reorganization of synapses that have outlived their usefulness (and which the brain can stand to lose - healthy destruction) and the maintenance or creation of existing and new synapses (which the brain needs to sustain old memories and form new ones, as well as perform other cognitive functions). That imbalance  comes from too many  of the synapse- and neuron-destroying quartet  of molecules snipped from APP and too few  of the synapse- and neuron-sustaining duo  of molecules snipped from APP.

abbreviation for apolipoprotein E, a gene variant (allele) which is a protein that carries lipids – i.e. fats. Carrying one ApoE4 (inherited from one parent) increases your lifetime risk of Alzheimer’s to 30 percent. Carrying two copies (from both parents) increases it to 50 to 90 percent. That compares to a risk of only about 9 percent in those who carry zero copies of this allele.
abbreviation for Amyloid Precursor Protein, the long molecule that protrudes from neurons

metabolic and genetic testing that identifies cognitive decline or what may be putting you at risk for it
umbrella term for a group of symptoms (a syndrome) without a definitive diagnosis. Dementia is a group of symptoms that affect mental cognitive tasks such as memory and reasoning. (Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common type of dementia.)
Early Alzheimer’s Disease
an early onset of Alzheimer’s Disease and uncommon form of dementia that typically affects those under the age of 65
Functional Medicine
a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease
carrying 1 copy of the ApoE4 genetic variant
carrying 2 copies of the ApoE4 genetic variant
Integrative Medicine
healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies.
Ketoflex 12/3
anti-Alzheimer’s diet to include at least 12 hours of fasting, with the first 3 hours of that fast starting after dinner. It is largely plant based, but flexible as it does allow for small amounts of meat or fish.
Mild Cognitive Impairment
MCT oil
an abbreviation for medium chain triglyceride (a saturated fat) which is found in coconut oil.  Alzheimer's impairs the brain's ability to use sugar.  An MCT ketogenic diet offers an alternative energy source:  ketones.  This allows brain cells to survive better, blocking a receptor in the brain that causes memory loss.
Subjective Cognitive Impairment – a precursor to MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment)
The Bredesen ProtocolTM
treatment program developed by Dr. Dale E. Bredesen to prevent and reverse cognitive decline (also known as The ReCODE ProtocolTM)
The ReCODE ProtocolTM
treatment program developed by Dr. Dale E. Bredesen to prevent and reverse cognitive decline (also known as The Bredesen ProtocolTM)
The ReCODE Report
computer generated report as a result of metabolic and genetic testing (CognoscopyTM)
The ReVERSE Program
customized  treatment program to reverse cognitive decline. This program starts with a ReCODE Report (a computer generated report as a result of metabolic and genetic testing called a CognoscopyTM)
