PreCODE & RECODE 2.0
Clinically, studies have proven that there is no one single treatment or cure for dementia and Alzheimer's disease (AD). There are several contributing factors that ultimately can be classified into 6 types of cognitive decline (Hot, Cold, Sweet, Vile, Pale, Dazed).
The RECODE Protocol, created by Dr. Dale Bredesen, is a comprehensive approach tackling specific health issues linked to dementia and AD. The acronym stands for Reversal of Cognitive Decline, reflecting the primary goal of not just managing but reversing the progression of cognitive impairment.
The RECODE Protocol begins with a thorough assessment involving both laboratory tests and cognitive evaluations. This in-depth analysis helps identify the specific type of dementia, allowing for a highly personalized and targeted treatment plan. The protocol revolves around the implementation of a comprehensive plan, focusing on the following 7 pillars of care:
Nutrition: Tailored dietary strategies to optimize brain health and function.
Exercise: Personalized exercise routines to enhance overall cognitive well-being.
Sleep: Strategies to improve the quality and duration of sleep, vital for cognitive health.
Stress: Techniques to manage and reduce stress levels, a critical factor in cognitive decline.
Brain Stimulation: Activities and exercises to stimulate and support brain function.
Detox: Protocols to address environmental and internal toxins affecting cognitive health.
Supplementation: Customized supplement regimens to support brain health and cognitive function.
In alignment with the principles of naturopathic medicine, the RECODE Protocol considers the individual's unique factors and aims to address the root causes of cognitive decline.
For those who are asymptomatic and wish to take proactive measures in preventing cognitive decline, the PreCODE Protocol, an integral part of Dr. Bredesen's approach, is tailored. This preventive strategy is especially suitable for individuals with a family history of dementia or Alzheimer's, genetic predisposition, or risk factors like Type 2 Diabetes or inflammation.
