Why You Should Listen:

In this episode, you will learn about dementia, cognitive decline, Alzheimer's, and "The End of Alzheimer's Program".

About My Guest:

My guest for this episode is Dr. Dale Bredesen. An internationally recognized expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, Dale Bredesen, MD's career has been guided by a simple idea: that Alzheimer’s as we know it is not just preventable, but reversible. Thanks to a dedicated pursuit of finding the science that makes this a reality, this idea has placed Dr. Bredesen at the vanguard of neurological research. Dr. Bredesen earned his MD from Duke University Medical Center and served as Chief Resident in Neurology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), before joining Nobel laureate Stanley Prusiner’s laboratory at UCSF as an NIH Postdoctoral Fellow. He held faculty positions at UCSF, UCLA, and the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Bredesen directed the Program on Aging at the Burnham Institute before joining the Buck Institute in 1998 as founding President and CEO. Dr. Bredesen’s research explores previously uncharted territory in explaining the physical mechanism behind the erosion of memory seen in Alzheimer’s disease, and has opened the door to new approaches to treatment. This work has led to the identification of several new therapeutic processes that are showing remarkable early results. Dr. Bredesen is a prodigious innovator in medicine, with over thirty patents to his name. His book “The End of Alzheimer's Program: The First Protocol to Enhance Cognition and Reverse Decline at Any Age” is the follow-up to his earlier work “The End of Alzheimer's: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline”.

Key Takeaways:

  • What are the recent developments in the ReCode protocol?
  • Why is holism a more appropriate way to approach cognitive decline over reductionism?
  • What is the "unjection" needed for Alzheimer's disease?
  • How can one access a cognoscopy?
  • Can the amyloid precursor protein molecular switch be tested?
  • What are the key contributors to inflammation?
  • How might one approach insulin resistance?
  • Which nutrients, hormones, and tropic factors are most commonly deficient?
  • What is the impact of nocturnal hypoglycemia and oxygen deprivation on quality sleep?
  • How might EWOT be helpful in cognitive decline?
  • What are the new types that have been categorized since the first book?
  • What is the role of ketosis in reversing cognitive decline?
  • How is treatment of microbes and toxins contributing to Alzheimer's approached?
  • What is the role of the amygdala and limbic system in the ReCODE protocol?
  • How might one support the sinus biome?
