The End of Alzheimer's: A Presentation on the Bredesen Protocol with Dr. Silvia Panitch, MD.

Alzheimer’s is a terrifying disease and unfortunately is on the rise. Up to now all treatments have failed miserably, have costed millions of dollars, while patients continue to deteriorate.

Last month you may have heard Dr. Tom O’Bryan talking about B4 Blood Brain Barrier and how is deteriorating due to inflammation, how to test for it, and what to do about it.

In our seminar you will learn about the Bredesen protocol and review this approach to be able to reverse and prevent many dementia cases. We’ll discuss the different potential mechanisms that can be the root causes of dementia. We will talk about the five types, the importance of testing our patients for the ApoE4 gene and what to do so they can get better. We will discuss which are the most important tests needed and how to approach each afterwards. I will also briefly cover the importance of the environmental toxins (like mold, toxic metals and non-metal toxins) as being contributors to all neurodegenerative diseases.

Why Attend a Meetup?
One of the biggest frustrations we hear from practitioners who practice the type of medicine that you do, is that you feel isolated from the rest of their medical community who don’t “get” the true value of what you offer. The purpose of the Functional Forum local meetup groups is to help you to develop a community of practitioners in your area who “get it”, to build your referral network, add value to your practice, your community, and the movement at large.

Anyone can tune into our Functional Forum event via livestream. What really excites us is when our events create dialogue between practitioners that are sharing best practices, asking tough questions, and helping each other to create the greatest impact with their patients and communities. It gives you the opportunity to not only network but also, keep your finger on the pulse of what’s happening in your own healthcare community.
