How did you find a doctor? I've searched online and haven't found anyone in San Antonio.


I now have signed up for recode, but found the doctor randomly first. A search found 2 doctors who are MPI cognition certified:
Donna Becker D.O.

I also think as others said that this is a case of overwhelm since the book was published, and a work in progress. I did note that in my area, one month ago 2 practitioners were listed within 50 miles and now there are 7.... so that is encouraging. My doctor was willing to do his best to do the labs etc. but I felt that it was difficult to prioritize and get what Dr. Bredesen's actual protocol would be based on my profile .(I don't want to miss any large holes in the roof/ or go down an unnecessary expensive path to patch a non-existent one!). So I committed to the year and have gotten one report, but based on limited testing/have lots more to do. It categorized me as type 1.5 (this may change when they get more data) and gave some basic recommendations. I'm hoping to get much more as time goes on.

After reading the book, finding out my apoe status, and finding this website, I am doing the 16+ hour fast, probably 70% fats (olive oil and avocado mainly), lots of vegs, low carb, gluten free. I do still have some dairy, organic soy, fatty fish, nuts, legumes, occasional chiicken. I have added fish oil, and increased vitamin d and B12 supplementation. I use "luna" with melatonin and herbs to help with sleep. My next path will be to hopefully go on bioidentical HRT (5 years+ post menopause), and do some testing through Quicksilver on mercury to decide if I need to think about amalgam removal. (bleh)

So I am a work in progress too! And feeling pretty good :D

Good luck to everyone on this journey. It's nice to know that we are doing what we can, and also reaping the positive benefits of being healthier and full of hope in the here and now.

THANK YOU, thank you, thank you, Chrissyr!!! Words cannot convey my gratitude! I did not use "MPI Cognition" when searching. One of the doctors is just 10 miles away from my mother! Now, I'm just waiting for Monday morning to make my call!

So I received an e-mail from Melissa with Dr. Bredesen and their ReCode website is live and you can join, and she let me know how many ReCODE trained practitioners there were in my area ahead of time (Dallas-Fort Worth, TX). See below the e-mail (in case you haven't received it) and it has website links (I hope those will come through in this post) on how to find a local practitioner in your area and how to get on ReCODE. It's $75 per month to join, and requires a 1 year commitment. And, of course my contractual job just ended on October 1, so I'm unemployed right now. .. so I likely won't join until I have a new job and feel I can financially afford to spend an extra $900 per year on it. Has anyone joined it and/or can you tell us if you feel like it's worth the cost? Thanks, Kat

Dear Kathy,

PLEASE NOTE: our new web address is www.drbredesen.com and email info@drbredesen.com.

We currently have 4 practitioners in Houston, 1 in Tyler, 1 in Marble Falls, 2 in San Antonio, 1 in College Station, 2 in Austin, 1 in Paris, and 4 in the Dallas/Ft Worth, TX areas.

Dr. Dale Bredesen’s company, MPI Cognition, has created a software program called “ReCODE Report™”, to enable practitioners trained in The Bredesen Protocol™ to treat their patients while staying up to date with the latest advances in his science. Please watch this video of Dr. Bredesen explaining the importance of a ReCODE Report™ account by clicking here. Dr. Bredesen does not see patients directly.

To find an MPI Cognition Certified practitioner in The Bredesen Protocol™ nearest you, please sign up for a ReCODE Report™ account. For a visual tutorial on how to sign up for your ReCODE Report™ account, please watch the Patient ReCODE Report™ Tutorial Video by clicking here.


How to sign up for a patient ReCODE Report™ account and start The Bredesen Protocol™:

1) Please watch the Patient ReCODE Report™ Tutorial Video in full. We now ask for first and last name, to help identity you to your selected practitioners. Only your selected practitioners, MPI Cognition and you - have access to this information. In addition to best secure software practices, all MPI Cognition information is HIPPA compliant.

2) Visit https://www.recodereport.com/patients/sign_up, enter your first name, last name and email address, then click “Create Account”.

3) Please check your email inbox for an email from info@recodereport.com. Open this email to confirm your account and create a password. If you do not see this email, please check your junk/spam folder.

4) Once logged into your Patient Account, you will be prompted to pay the first $75 USD /monthly fee of a one year commitment.

5) Once you are logged into your “active” patient ReCODE Report™ account, click “Providers” and search for the nearest practitioner to you. If you would like to know how far away the nearest practitioners are before signing up – please call or email us and we can let you know (please expect a response within three business days, due to the high volume of inquiry)

6) Before clicking “Select Provider”, please call to make an appointment with the provider first and discuss their fees. As, health insurance only covers about 7 minutes of a physician’s time and your new practitioner will need approximately two hours for your first appointment. Each practitioner has a different set of fees.

7) After you have scheduled your appointment, please click “Select Provider” to give your new practitioner access to medical information support with Dr. Bredesen and MPI Cognition’s CMO Dr. Ross, and the ability to generate ReCODE Reports™ for you.

8) We recommend reading through the Nutritional Guidelines. Please check with your physician before changing your diet, especially if you are on any medications.

9) For your complimentary Brain HQ account to activate, MPI Cognition will need a first and last name for your Brain HQ account. You may email this to techsupport@drbredesen.com, call us, or you can add your first and last name in your patient ReCODE Report™ account by clicking “My Account”, then edit, add the first and last name and click save. Please allow 1-2 business days after MPI Cognition receives the first and last name for you Brain HQ account to activate - you will receive an email from MPI Cognition on how to set up your Complimentary Brain HQ account. If you already have an active Brain HQ account, please allow five business days for the switch.

10) If you prefer to not enter your legal first and last name to your patient ReCODE Report™ account, please make sure to let the practitioner you have selected know the email address for your ReCODE Report™ account.

11) Call or email us with any and all questions! (800) 450-0805; info@drbredesen.com (Please expect a response within three business days, due to the high volume of inquiry.)



What comes with your patient ReCODE Report™ account:
Map of trained practitioners globally
Unlimited ReCODE Reports™
Complimentary Brain HQ account
Nutritional Guidelines for The Bredesen Protocol™
Live “Town Hall” meetings with Dr. Bredesen every month (starting in mid-October)

Aryn, I am so glad you can now place your call on Monday. As others have noted, it's likely a case of overwhelm from urgent need. (I am hopeful that Dr Bredesen and his staff will get this issue worked out. I know that they want to.) We'll look forward to hearing about your mom's journey, and send her our best wishes and thoughts.

We also would like to support you in your interest in becoming a health coach. Reach out to any of the Interns on the site if you would like additional information.

Thanks Chrissyr - I just received my e-mail about joining ReCODE a few days ago, but of course I'm now unemployed as of October 1, so I will wait to join and pay $900 per year until I know I have a more stable financial setting. Melissa with Dr. Bredesen's office said they had four doctors trained in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Do you know how I would go about finding them? Before joining ReCODE did you just Google "MPI Cognition trained physician Texas" or something along those lines? Thanks, Kat
