Bredesen Protocol Treatment
A New Option for Treating Alzheimer's
When John was diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease, he was terrified of losing his memories, skills and independence. His doctor prescribed common medications, but the side effects sounded concerning.
There had to be a better, more natural way to approach Alzheimer’s care. After researching, John discovered the Bredesen Protocol Treatment – a personalized program to prevent and reverse cognitive decline through lifestyle changes. This innovative approach aligned well with John’s goals.
The Bredesen Protocol Treatment differs from standard protocols by identifying the specific biological drivers fueling each individual’s cognitive deterioration. Through extensive testing called a Cognoscopy, Dr. Bredesen pinpoints the root causes of impairment based on genetics, biomarkers, and symptoms.
There are over 36 factors that can contribute to cognitive decline, from inflammation to hormonal deficiencies to toxicity. Based on John’s unique imbalances, Dr. Bredesen designs a tailored regimen using food, exercise, stress reduction, supplements and more to improve metabolic, inflammatory and synaptic dysfunction.
For example, if testing reveals John has chronic inflammation, his protocol would remove inflammatory foods and lower cytokine levels. If toxicity is detected, he would follow steps to facilitate toxin removal and support detoxification pathways. The key is addressing John’s personal disease drivers, not just blanket treatment.
John feels hopeful knowing he can take an active role in his care by optimizing nutrition, reducing exposures, managing stress, tracking biomarkers, and supporting neuron growth. Gradually restoring cognitive skills motivates John to persevere through lifestyle changes.
Stories of others like him who improved through Dr. Bredesen’s protocol treatment gives John optimism. This is a stark contrast from the passive approach of just medicating symptoms without stopping progression. John is ready to fight Alzheimer’s by understanding and addressing the origins of his disease at their root.
John knows it won’t be easy, but he owes it to himself and loved ones to try this personalized medicine method. By getting to the source of his cognitive decline, John can hopefully reclaim his memories, abilities and independence. He encourages others with Alzheimer’s to explore the Bredesen Protocol for hope and healing.

A Revolutionary Approach to Alzheimer's Treatment
This shows Alzheimer’s is not a single disease, but the convergence of complex processes disrupting neuronal health. The Bredesen Protocol uses a three part approach:
Step 1: Detect Your Alzheimer's Subtype Through Cognoscopy
Cognoscopy is a series of blood tests, cognitive assessments, and imaging to pinpoint which subtype processes are active for an individual. This is critical for creating a personalized treatment plan.
Step 2: Remove Contributing Factors Driving Decline
Eliminate exposures, diet components, medications or risk factors fueling your specific disease processes. For example, a patient with chronic inflammation would remove inflammatory foods from their diet.
Step 3: Rebuild Neuronal Connections and Cognitive Capacity
Use diet, exercise, sleep, stress reduction, targeted supplements and other interventions to stimulate nerve growth factors, neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity. For instance, ketogenic diets have been shown to regenerate neuron connections.
Restoring Cognition Where Conventional Medicine Fails
Unlike current Alzheimer’s medications which just attempt to reduce amyloid plaques, the Bredesen Protocol Treatment addresses why plaques accumulated in the first place. This is a major shift from management to true prevention and reversal.
While more research is still needed, current results are extremely promising. Studies show Bredesen Protocol patients improve cognition and daily living activities, even those with advanced Alzheimer’s.
Hope exists. Through personalized, root-cause medicine, we may be able to undo the neural damage wrought by Alzheimer’s disease. Detecting imbalances early and taking proactive steps offers the best odds of protecting brain health.
If you notice memory lapses or cognitive changes, don’t wait. Seek functional medicine testing and treatment to uncover your unique Alzheimer’s subtype today. Ask your doctor about the Bredesen Protocol or schedule a consultation with Dr. Muran to learn more about this revolutionary approach to Alzheimer’s care.
