The Seven Causes of Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease 

Dr. Dale Bredesen, MD is researcher on a mission to rid the world of the scourge of neurodegenerative diseases – especially Alzheimer’s Dementia. Indeed, Dr. Bredesen’s protocol is the only documented method to have ever successfully reversed Alzheimer’s.  While the vast majority of people in the medical profession and the public believe that Alzheimer’s and neurodegenerative diseases are unstoppable and irreversible, Dr. Bredesen’s work proves otherwise.

Dr. Bredesen discovered that there are certain conditions that lead to cognitive decline. The discovery process known as a Cognoscopy was originally divided in to 5.5 areas. For clarity I have expanded the categories to 7. Each sufferer has a unique combination of overlapping issues stemming from these broad categories. The average AD person has at least 36 factors contributing to their specific manifestation of cognitive decline.

The Seven Causes are characterized as: Seven Causes of Dementia

1.       Hot – inflammation, infection

2.       Cold – hormones, nutrients

3.       Sweet – insulin resistance, blood sugar, diabetes, hypoglycemic, type 3 diabetes

4.       Vile – toxins, environmental pollution, chemicals

5.       Dazed - trauma, TBI, Stroke, Surgery, Concussions, Anesthesia

6.       Pale – circulation, blood oxygen, vascular leakage

7.       Prone – genetics, lifestyle (added)


A Cognoscopy is a process that involves very specific labs, detailed historical and life events screening, along with standardized cognive performance testing designed to identify the factors contributing to your situation. Each person has a unique combination of these factors that are wreaking havoc on their lives and the functions of their brain. 

Once your driving factors are identified, a program designed to restore order and balance to your system is developed. Following the ReCode "Cognitive Road Map" provides the therapeutic focals for your recovery.
