Become an Apollo Health Certified Practitioner

Why choose Apollo? We support physicians, other medical professionals, and lifestyle and nutrition experts by providing dynamic, evolving solutions for cognitive decline, empowering practitioners 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 identifying the specific drivers of cognitive decline and developing 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.

The First Protocol to Reverse Early-Stage Alzheimer’s

The successful results of the study “Precision Medicine Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease: Successful Pilot Project” were published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. The study was led by three integrative physicians — Drs. Kat Toups, Ann Hathaway, and Deborah Gordon — along with Dr. Bredesen, took a deeper dive into each of the study participant’s genetics and biomarkers in order to derive the optimal personalized, precision medicine protocol for each. Eighty-four percent of the trial’s participants showed cognitive improvement in this first-of-its-kind study.

Both current and new practitioners who have completed the ReCODE 2.0 training program, which costs $1,999, will receive a special designation in our practitioner database so that participants will see that you’ve completed the most recent training program. We will also introduce a new designation in the database entitled “Apollo Preferred Practitioner,” which 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’ll appear on the upcoming public-facing practitioner database, which will appear outside our website’s paywall, enabling you to attract participants who are seeking professionals who have the most up-to-date training in the Bredesen Protocol.

ReCODE 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 “ReCODE 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.

    What happens when you complete the ReCODE 2.0 Training? 

    Once you have completed the full ReCODE 2.0 training program and answered all the quiz questions, our practitioner support group will verify your credentials and assist you with onboarding, so you appear in our trained practitioner database. You will receive a special designation in the database so that participants will see that you have completed the ReCODE 2.0 Training Program. Here are the steps to complete this process:

    1. To complete your verification, you will need to provide us with:
      • Proof of a License to practice (or equivalent) in your designated profession.
      • Proof of completion of the ReCODE 2.0 Training Program.
    2. Once your credentials have been verified, and we have some history of your practice and its success stories with PreCODE and/or ReCODE, you will receive a second designation that you are an Apollo Preferred Practitioner and will show up on the public-facing Practitioner / Coach Locator Tool database. Further details on the Apollo Preferred Practitioner designation will be forthcoming as we are in the process of finalizing the details.
