Bredesen Protocol

Dr. Bredesen and Aarti Batavia at a conference

Alzheimer’s disease is the leading cause of dementia worldwide and is poised to become a major public health crisis. To date, there are few single treatments, pharmaceutical or otherwise, that can help with this degenerative condition. Dr. Bredesen’s research has demonstrated that a multimodal “programmatic” approach can be successful in the treatment of early stage Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment (MCI)1

Functional Medicine is uniquely suited to identify and address the numerous issues that drive cognitive decline. “There are dozens of drivers that all turn out to be critical for potential contributions to cognitive decline, and with the systems biology approach taken by Functional Medicine, identifying and treating them is intrinsic to the process”, says Dr Bredesen.

Aarti is one of the very few advanced functional medicine practitioners in the world who is not only IFM- Certified but also trained by the research neurologist Dr Dale Bredesen himself to implement “The Bredesen Protocol” utilizing the systems biology approach taken by Functional Medicine.

An important part of the protocol is a range of dietary and nutritional interventions along with management of lifestyle and supplements that requires a trained nutrition professional to safely execute.

Aarti offers an intense six to twelve month program with much required monitoring and support.

This protocol can also be applied for preventative management of cognitive decline in individuals susceptible to Mild Cognitive Impairment and have a family history of Alzheimer’s disease.
