82% of seniors say it is important to have their thinking or memory checked, but only 16% say they receive regular cognitive assessments. It is startling that more than half of the 5.4 million Americans with the disease have no idea they do.
The vast majority of people with Alzheimer’s are diagnosed with the condition after the age of 65, but clumps of amyloid protein can begin to build up in the brain some 15 or 20 years before symptoms appear. At Complete Health Dentistry of Columbus, Dr. Barbara McClatchie is a certified provider of the ReCode Program in Columbus, Ohio, working to prevent Alzheimer's Disease.
"Science-based Prevention and Recovery for Brain Health"
ReCODE is the first-ever community around the prevention and reversal of cognitive decline. The community encompasses a professional care team of support staff that works with practitioners participating in the PreCODE and ReCODE programs. The ReCODE and PreCODE Reports are a proprietary implementation of the Bredesen Protocol, allowing practitioners and individuals to achieve unprecedented success in the prevention (PreCODE) and reversal (ReCODE) of cognitive decline. Through genetics, blood biomarkers, and a multi-modal reporting system, participants and their practitioners receive new prevention and treatment options for brain health optimization and the prevention of cognitive decline, and the reversal of the symptoms for those in the early-stage Alzheimer’s disease or to those experiencing cognitive decline. The Apollo Health mission is to reduce the global burden of dementia, and as a certified practitioner, Dr. Barbara McClathie is offering this cutting-edge prevention of dementia in Columbus, Ohio.
The Bredesen Protocol developed by Dr. Dale Bredesen is a comprehensive, personalized program to improve cognition and reverse the cognitive decline of subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and early Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Bredesen has outlined 36 metabolic factors that can trigger “downsizing” in the brain. Working with the results from the PreCODE and ReCODE Reports, the protocol shows us how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications and a community of professionals.
Derived from the principles of the Bredesen Protocol, the ReCODE Program is designed for individuals who would like more resources to combat cognitive decline or the onset of cognitive decline. Utilizing Apollo Health’s ReCODE Report and Dr. Bredesen’s 30+ years of research, we can provide better and more precise outcomes of care, paired with our community of PreCODE and ReCODE certified practitioners, specialists, health coaches, and nutritionists.
Why is it important for a Dentist to be a ReCODE Certified Provider?
Pathogenic bacteria found in the mouth, called spirochetes, have been associated with Alzheimer's disease. These spirochetes form plaque, tangles, and curly fiber-like lesions in the brain. Their number progressively increases in patients with moderate and severe Alzheimers disease, escaping destruction of the host immune response and establishing chronic infection and sustained inflammation.
Research has shown that Alzheimer's disease brain lesions are infiltrated with oral spirochetes. Here at Complete Health Dentistry of Columbus, we can test you for these oral spirochetes through saliva testing. If you present with these oral spirochetes, proper periodontal disease treatment can eliminate spirochete infection; therefore, reducing a risk factor of cognitive decline.

Alzheimer's is one of the most significant global health threats we face today. 45 million out of 318 million currently living Americans will develop Alzheimer's disease, and nearly 50 million — will die of Alzheimer's disease if effective prevention and reversal are not implemented.
As a Complete Health practice, Dr. McClatchie specializes in identifying oral health factors related to your body's overall health and optimizing brain health with a specialized focus on oral-systemic health. She is certified in the prevention and reversal of Alzheimer's disease, ReCODE 2.0.
