Overcome Cognitive Decline and Find Peace of Mind
Many people with cognitive decline experience frustration with the lack of treatment options. A loss of memory or mental function is already difficult enough; finding options for treatment shouldn’t be. Our mission is to end that frustration and anxiety, and to help restore your cognitive health so you can get back to living your life.
is happening with my mind?
You don’t want to waste any time – start with getting a baseline on the health of your brain. We call this a NeuroCheck©. This gives us some clear data on your brain. We do this by ordering a specific kind of MRI, performing a volumetric analysis, and also administering two cognitive assessments. NeuroCheck© additionally includes a consultation where we discuss the results with you, and recommend a treatment plan.

Cognitive decline doesn’t just happen; there are specific reasons that it occurs. Our Bredesen Qualified practitioners are specially trained to identify these causes. Also being certified by the Institute for Functional Medicine means we can more effectively find the root issue and treat you.

The Most Complete Program You'll Find Anywhere
NeuroCheck© We administer a neurocognitive assessment and order your MRI. Then we perform a volumetric analysis of your MRI and generate a Neuroreader™ Report. We go over the results of these tests in a consultation with a Bredesen Qualified™practitioner.
A 2-hour Medical Intake Visit The doctor will run several different cognition measurements, as well as other physical testing, and an extensive functional medicine health survey. He will analyze your prior testing, discuss your goals, describe the different lab testing, and get you set up on your program. This is an opportunity to share with the doctor any information you have in regards to your medical history and have any questions answered.
Customized Lab Tests These labs may include up to 60 different tests that help determine the treatment plan that’s right for you. This is where we check into the causes of your cognitive decline.
CIRS Assessment and Treatment We have found that for patients with Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) as one of the drivers of their cognitive decline, it is absolutely critical to detect and treat it first. This can take some time and seem like a delay, but it is crucial to treat CIRS in order to optimize your success with the Bredesen Protocol™.
CIRS Report of Findings We cover the results of your CIRS testing and launch the Shoemaker Protocol portion of your program.
Specialized Neurocognitive Assessments The first assessment is completed as a part of NeuroCheck© for the purpose of understanding your functioning. We perform regular assessments as you progress through your treatment plan in order to monitor your progress
ReCODE Report For patients doing the full Bredesen Protocol program, we give a 1-hour Report-of-Findings visit to discuss the ReCODE Report generated from your lab results. The practitioner will discuss the report, and personalize the protocol for you at this visit. Your supplement prescription and lifestyle modifications are customized for you based on the findings of this report.
