The Bredesen Protocol Cost

At CogMission, we believe in being upfront about all the costs so that the patient and family can make a fully informed decision before starting care.

It is vital to us that patients are committed, and this only happens when they have no unexpected surprises.

This section contains information about the Bredesen Protocol fees, so this is for patients who are experiencing severe cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s or Dementia.

The Bredesen Protocol Treatment Program Fees

The programme is very individualised but on average, the cost per day is £12.

All fees are payable monthly in advance.

After the initial testing, patients go through three phases of care. Please see below for detailed breakdown.

Initial Testing

The diagnostic laboratory workup is dependent on each patient’s personal case history and presentation.  However, the essential tests include:

Haematology

Hormonal evaluation (including thyroid, adrenal, sex hormones)

Biochemistry profile

Nutritional evaluation

Inflammatory markers

Intestinal permeability

Heavy metal screen

Comprehensive GI Map

And costs £984

 

Some patients require more extensive testing, which may include:

Lyme Disease and co-infections – £1486.00

MARCoNS £385

Mould and CIRS £1625

Comprehensive Autoimmune profile £660

APOE status  £180

Full genetic panel available on request

We have published all the prices here for transparency, but it will not be clear how much or little testing a patient requires until we have some initial chats with you. If you are considering treatment on the Bredesen Protocol and would like a better idea of what your personal treatment plan might cost, then please just get in touch with our clinic directors for more personalised information.

Acute (months 1-3) at £500/month:

During the Acute phase at the initial 90 minute appointment, an intense and detailed
case history and workup will be carried out by both practitioners to ensure that every
aspect of possible care is covered. Once the results of the test panels are received,
these will be assessed in detail and a report will be given on the results. Thereafter
at each monthly appointment all areas of focus will be discussed and the medicines
and protocol adapted as required dependant on the changes that occur.

Included:

Monthly one to one consultations with both clinic directors
Monthly one to one consultation with the senior nutritionist
A full treatment plan
Unlimited contact time for any queries that may arise
Cognitive testing CNSVS/VCS/MOCA
Team review of care

Functional Testing
Herbal medicines and supplements
Dental Screen £180 (optional)
Subscription to Recode System (please note – this is a 12 month commitment of monthly charges)

Correction (months 4-6) at £400/month

During the Correction phase we will be continually assessing and fine tuning as the
patient adapts and changes. This is to ensure that the treatment schedule is specific
and carefully adjusted to each individual on a monthly basis.

Included:

One to one consultations with both clinic directors
Unlimited contact time for any queries that may arise
Cognitive testing CNSVS/VCS/MOCA
Team review of care and revised treatment plan

Maintenance (month 6 onwards) at £250/month

By the time we move to theMaintenance phase, stability has been achieved and a
successful specific protocol is in place. This is a less intensive period but will always
be carefully monitored.

Included:

Monthly one to one consultations with both clinic directors
Unlimited contact time for any queries that may arise
Cognitive testing CNSVS/VCS/MOCA
Team review of care and revised treatment plan

Excludes:
Functional Testing

Notes:

The protocol is cost heavy initially as the first three to six months of work analysing the test results and specifying the appropriate direction of treatment is time intensive.

In addition, a great deal of care and time needs to be taken to correctly prescribe both appropriate supplementation and herbal medicine.

Most of this work is done “behind the scenes”. As we familiarise ourselves with both the patient and the test outcomes, this costing will drop quite considerably.

Additional costs to the patient:

Retesting of tests out of range will have to be repeated at 3- 6 months

Any supplements which are recommended for the protocol

A specific personalised herbal medicine prescription each month totalling approximately £40- £50/month

Subscription to Dr. Bredesen’s “ReCODE” $75 monthly (minimum 12 months commitment)

A standard blood screen that covers the critical elements of the cognoscopy is priced at £395.

Additional testing may be required depending on the individual case.

You may already have some of these tests completed and in this case it will not be necessary to re-run them. We use a variety of laboratories to find the best value for money.

Fees are payable one month in advance.
