Become an Apollo Health Certified Practitioner

Why choose Apollo? We support physicians, other medical professionals, lifestyle, and nutrition experts by providing dynamic, evolving solutions for cognitive decline, empowering practitioners both to prevent and reverse symptoms. Guided by our chief science officer, Dr. Dale Bredesen, we offer the only training program to utilize the PreCODE (prevention) and ReCODE (reversal) software algorithms to use the Bredesen Protocol® and guide participants towards optimal brain health.  

The Bredesen Protocol is a personalized program to prevent and reverse cognitive decline associated with subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and early Alzheimer’s disease. Apollo Health’s ReCODE 2.0 training will provide the tools needed to manage the overall care, including identification of the specific drivers of cognitive decline and development of a treatment plan using the Bredesen Protocol with the PreCODE and ReCODE Reports. Bredesen protocol practitioners are in high demand, and the specialized knowledge and expertise provided by Apollo Health will place you in the perfect launching spot to ascend as a leader in the field of treating, preventing, and reversing cognitive decline.

If you’ve previously completed the past training course (no longer offered) called Reversing Cognitive Decline Advanced Clinical Training by the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), we strongly encourage you to continue your education in the Bredesen Protocol by engaging in the new ReCODE 2.0 training at a 50% discount. Simply  CLICK HERE  to verify that you are an existing practitioner and follow the instructions to receive your special discount. 

Both current and new practitioners who’ve completed the full ReCODE 2.0 training program will receive a special designation in our practitioner database so that participants will see that you have completed the most recent training program. We will also be introducing a second new designation in the database entitled “Apollo Preferred Practitioner” that will be awarded once your credentials have been verified, we have some history on your practice, and examples of your success with PreCODE and/or ReCODE. One of the key benefits of becoming a preferred practitioner is that you will appear on the upcoming public-facing practitioner database, which will appear outside the paywall of our website, enabling you to attract participants who are seeking professionals who are officially using ReCODE and trained in the Bredesen Protocol.

ReCODE 2.0 Training

We are excited to announce that the first set of modules of the ReCODE 2.0 online training program are now available. Anyone can participate in this training. However, to become an Apollo Health-certified practitioner listed in our database, you must fall into one of the following categories:

**Note that a certification program specifically created for dentists and dental teams is being finalized. We anticipate pre-registration for enrollment to begin around mid-December 2020. In the interim, if you are interested or have any questions, please email us at dentaltraining@ahnphealth.com.

If you would like to be certified and don’t see your professional listed or are uncertain if you fall under one of these categories, please send an email to training@ahnphealth.com for more information.   

Unfortunately, due to COVID, our video production was delayed earlier this year. Therefore, we have decided to launch the program now with the modules as they become available. This will allow you to get started immediately with the training program as we have over ten hours of content completed. Below is a set of the modules available now, the dates the remaining modules will be available, and information about our instructors.

Because of our launch delay, for new practitioners, we are extending a 15% discount off the retail price of $1,500 for the ReCODE 2.0 Training Program if you register before all of the modules become available. Simply use the code COVID15 upon checkout or CLICK HERE to enroll to automatically have the discount coupon applied.

ReCODE Protocol supplements

LifeSeasons® Supplements

Apollo Health and Dr. Dale Bredesen’s strategic partnership with LifeSeasons® arm those in Apollo Health’s community with a powerful tool in the fight against cognitive decline with condition-specific nutritional supplements, which are third-party tested for purity and quality. The supplements formulated by LifeSeasons are a critical aspect of the protocol. Micronutrient deficiencies are a contributing factor frequently associated with cognitive decline. These supplements aid in mitigating those nutritional deficits, and along with diet, exercise, sleep, and brain-stimulating games, offer a unique compliment to the overall science behind the Bredesen Protocol and the PreCODE and ReCODE programs.

Bredesen Center of Excellence (Coming Soon)

In addition to Apollo Health’s training program coming soon, we are working on Phase II of our certification and training offerings, and those efforts will be known as the “Bredesen Center of Excellence.” The certification program will work with health and medical professionals, clinics, hospitals, facility, and staff, to ensure that the delivery and execution of the protocol meets Apollo Health’s standards. Beyond individual training, this will be a deeper-dive and immersive experience into care management and delivery of the protocol.
