The Bredesen Protocol
While a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease seemed like a permanent sentence in the past, the revolutionary treatment protocol developed by Dr Dale Bredesen offers hope for people dealing with dementia today.
Furthermore, those who determine to prevent Alzheimer’s now have the roadmap to succeed!

Testing for Root Causes
Using a functional medicine approach to identify the root causes of the disease, a comprehensive suite of laboratory diagnostic tests carefully examines an array of metabolic markers. These include bloodwork (including genetics), urine, MRI with volumetrics (the volume of the brain as a whole and divided into parts) and other diagnostics. These tests are compiled into a detailed report with a unique treatment protocol, tailored to each client.
Throughout the course of treatment, bloodwork and cognitive evaluations are done strategically. This is done to measure the progress and re-evaluate areas that need the greatest focus.
Creating the Roadmap
Once all the lab testing results are in, we run a “ReCode” report, which takes all of the data into account and creates a roadmap, specific to the individual. This report itemizes steps to be taken to reduce root cause contributor and adjustments to be made to lifestyle that impact the brain. It may suggest additional testing and or treatment to dig deeper into certain areas. The report triages the greatest impact of root causes and on a sliding scale of sorts. The areas of root cause are grouped as such:
Getting Started with Treatment
With roadmap (ReCode report) in hand, the client is ready to get started to optimize his or her brain. We consider this step where the fun begins! The protocol has been broken down into the Bredesen Seven, meaning the seven categories that we tackle as they impact the brain.
The Bredesen Protocol areas of treatment are what are known as the Bredesen Seven and include:
Identifying root causes of cognitive decline
Vitamins and nutrients
We at Age Well Simply work with our clients to create a schedule of tackling the steps in the ReCode report. As we work together, we enjoy the process of exploring our clients’ motivations to make changes and unhook what holds them back. We love watching our clients learn about themselves and rejoice together as each win is made! We know this protocol can feel overwhelming and accept that not each week is perfect. We also know, because we have seen it in action, that making the small changes, day by day, week by week, add up to the changes that clients desire. We are here to carry out this protocol with our clients and do so with sincere interest and genuine hope.
