Dr. Dan LaPerriere has been using Dr. Bredesen’s research to treat clients with cognitive impairment and dementia since 2016 when he first read Dr. Bredesen’s groundbreaking paper. In 2017, Dr. Dan completed Dr. Bredesen’s Reversing Cognitive Decline Advanced Training Course and became a certified provider. He has since become a ReCODE 2.0 Certified Practitioner.  Through his years of experience he has gained extensive knowledge and become an expert in how to best guide and support clients throughout this process. His practice has evolved such dementia treatment and prevention constitute the majority of the work that he does.

Dr. Dan shares Dr. Bredesen’s mission to make Alzheimer’s dementia a disease of the past.

Dr. Dan is trained and proficient in administering bioidentical hormone therapy, reversing type 2 diabetes, optimizing gut health and nutrition, treating chronic inflammation, detoxification of heavy metals and environmental toxins, treating mold-related illness, treating thyroid disease, treating and reversing cardiovascular disease, using peptide therapy, testing for and using plasmalogen therapy, diagnosing and treating autoimmune illness, and addressing chronic infections.

While it is our mission to help you succeed, success is highly reliant on you being fully invested in the program.

COCFM Cognitive Programs For
ReCODE & PreCODE Participants

Should I be doing PreCODE or ReCODE?

PreCODE is strictly preventative.  A PreCODE participant is a person who does not have any current cognitive symptoms but who wants to institute a strategy to prevent dementia. Frequently, this individual will have a genetic risk for Alzheimer’s disease such as a positive family history of Alzheimer’s disease or an ApoE4 gene.   This program focuses on instituting lifestyle changes that will help keep Alzheimer’s disease at bay and looks at a few of the key labs that can impact cognition.

ReCODE is much more intensive and designed for treatment.  A ReCODE participant is a person manifesting any degree of cognitive difficulty/problems and who wants to stop/reverse this process. This program focuses on instituting the key lifestyle changes that will help treat Alzheimer’s disease and takes a deep dive into the exploration and treatment of the underlying drivers of dementia.

You Can Stop & Prevent Dementia

Start of Your Journey

Your ReCODE or PreCODE journey starts with a 1-hour consultation with Dr. Dan LaPerriere. During this consult, Dr. Dan will learn a bit about you, answer any questions you have about the practice, perform a MoCA test (to determine your baseline cognitive status), assess your willingness to change, and assess your ability to stick with a lifestyle program.  In the end, the hope is to determine if we would be a good fit to work together.

The cost for this consultation is $100. If you sign up to work with COCFM the $100 fee will go towards the cost of the program with COCFM.

The Cognitive Programs for ReCODE and PreCODE Participants both start with an intensive 6-12 months of work together.  Following the initial year, we have ongoing care options available so we can continue to support you and keep you motivated on your ReCODE or PreCODE journey.
