SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The inventor and developer of the original MEND protocol (metabolic enhancement for neurodegeneration), Dr. Dale Bredesen, has developed a more sophisticated and effective protocol, dubbed ReCODE™ for Reversal of Cognitive Decline. The MEND protocol was the first to result in the reversal of cognitive decline in patients with pre-Alzheimer's conditions and early Alzheimer's disease, as published in the journal Aging in 2014 by Dr. Bredesen.
Since Dr. Bredesen's initial publication, he has made several new discoveries, including the recognition and naming of specific subtypes of Alzheimer's disease (published by Bredesen in 2015) and the recognition of specific toxic exposures contributing to Alzheimer's disease (published in 2015 and 2016). These discoveries and others led to the development of ReCODE™, the new version of The Bredesen Protocol™. "These latest discoveries greatly enhance our ability to determine the underlying causes of cognitive decline, thus improving our overall approach to reversing the decline, and strengthening the ability of our MPI Cognition Certified™ physicians to help their patients in need," said Bredesen.
