Brain Health

Keeping our brains healthy is more important then ever as Alzheimer's disease is a rapidly growing global health care problem. Conventional medicine holds that Alzheimer's disease is incurable and largely untreatable with no reliable way to prevent it. Many Functional Medicine practitioners have teamed up with Dr. Dale Bredesen, an internationally recognized expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, to reduce the burden of Alzheimer's disease and bring hope to patients and their families.

 

Dr. Fleming is a certified practitioner and completed training in Bredesen's ReCODE 2.0. Using innovative specialized testing, Dr. Fleming will partner with you to find the underlying cause(s) of your, or your loved one's, cognitive decline with the goal to reverse symptoms. For patients without symptoms who want to optimize their brain health and prevent cognitive decline (PreCODE), Dr. Fleming will provide you with the tools and testing you need to create a personalized treatment plan. She understands that being proactive in your health is vital! Learn more:
