I am excited to share my step-by-step clinical approach to Cognitive Decline and Dementia with everyone.
In good health,
Datis Kharrazian, PhD, DHSc, DC, MS, MMSc, FACN and his team
If you want to treat cognitive decline effectively, you need to know how it works.
You need to understand the neurology of the brain, the role of each area of the brain, and how symptoms related to that area manifest.
Functional medicine is heading in the wrong direction when it comes to cognitive decline
In functional medicine we are seeing a trend where practitioners assume anyone who presents with cognitive decline has Alzheimer’s and put the patient on specific Alzheimer’s and dementia protocols.
We’re headed in the wrong direction with this approach.
Instead, it’s important to first figure out what is the mechanism of their cognitive decline — it’s not always Alzheimer’s disease.
While the rates of Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline are growing, it’s a mistaken and overly simplistic model to treat all cases of cognitive decline as Alzheimer’s.
Non-Alzheimer’s factors that can cause cognitive decline include:
To know what is causing your patient’s cognitive decline, it’s important to avoid immediately jumping into Alzheimer’s protocols.
Instead, you want to go step by step through the process of differentially diagnosing the underlying mechanisms and then developing clinical strategies specific to those mechanisms.
Mechanisms you will learn to treat include:
Only when you have diagnosed the underlying mechanism of cognitive decline can you put together an appropriate and effective treatment and lifestyle application.
These are some of the things I’m going to teach you in this course.
We will spend quite a bit of time making sure you understand:
How the brain works
How memory and cognition work
How recall works
How to identify break downs in those areas of the brain in your patient work up
Can your patient maintain focus while relaying their history? Do they show problems with name recall, special orientation, or their sense of direction?
By looking at symptoms like these and many more, you will learn to identify which areas of the brain are involved and what to do about them.
We will discuss applications such as:
Using a functional medicine approach to look at the different risk factors
The research on nutraceuticals as they apply to various areas of breakdown
The impact of diet, environmental factors, pathogens, and other factors on health
While not all cases of cognitive decline are due to Alzheimer’s and dementia, cases of Alzheimer’s and dementia are still skyrocketing in incidence.
It’s important to understand how to manage them.
You will learn how Alzheimer’s and dementia fit in the web of blood sugar handling systems, the immune system, the integrity of the blood-brain barrier, gut health, hormones, and how these all work together.
I will walk you through all of these concepts and simplify it into a step-by-step thought process so you have the tools you need to effectively help and work with patients suffering from cognitive decline.
The only valid way to manage Alzheimer’s
Pharmaceutical companies have spent billions of dollars trying to develop a drug that will cure Alzheimer’s.
Those pharmaceutical studies have failed, and the science continues to point in the same direction when it comes to treating Alzheimer’s patients:
A multivariate, personalized lifestyle medicine approach that involves diet, lifestyle, nutrition, exercise, and strategies that impact brain health.
Although multiple factors can cause cognitive decline, the truth is Alzheimer’s is on the rise and you’re bound to run into it with your patient population. It’s important that you know how to best improve your patient’s quality of life.
Each patient suffering from Alzheimer’s disease has their own unique set of triggers that must be identified and addressed, which I will go through in this course.
I will also teach you how common concepts identified in the literature can be applied to develop a customized approach that is optimal for each patient’s unique needs.
For instance, while strategies such as a ketogenic diet, intermittent fasting, controlling insulin, reducing inflammation, dampening microglial activation, improving microbiome diversity, and so on, have been shown to be successful in managing Alzheimer’s, I’ll show you how to determine which approaches are going to work best for which patients.
Given the variables identified in the research and the fact that each patient will come in with different underlying mechanisms, how do you know where to begin as a practitioner? And how do you know if you’re missing anything?
I’ll teach you a step-by-step process for working up each patient and developing a personalized plan for them based on their unique needs and mechanisms.
Learn which area of the brain to treat for best results
Most practitioners jump into a global brain protocol when a patient presents with cognitive decline or Alzheimer’s.
That can certainly help, but there are different patterns of dementia involving different areas of the brain.
To best help your patients, you need to understand what the underlying mechanisms are, which areas of the brain are most affected, and how to treat the entire web.
For instance, focus, attention, and concentration are involved with the frontal lobe. If your patients can’t focus, stay on task, concentrate, or have a hard time planning, then you know the frontal lobe is involved.
Once information comes into the frontal lobe, it is developed into short-term and long-term memories through engaging other areas of the brain such as the hippocampus, medial temporal lobe, and the Papez circuit.
Symptoms of cognitive decline can include recalling things in the past but not being able to learn new information, forgetting important past events, losing the ability to focus and concentrate, and so on.
These are all different degrees of dementia and cognitive decline that involve different areas of the brain and different underlying mechanisms.
In this course, we’re going to walk through the neurology of focus, concentration, cognition, and recall, and then I will teach you how to find imbalances in each of these regions of your patients’ brains.
Is your practice suffering due to your OWN cognitive decline? Your most important patient may be yourself
One of your most serious cases of cognitive decline may not be a patient, but you, the practitioner.
Throughout my career I have traveled around the country and seen the same practitioners in various cities repeatedly over time. When you see someone only once or twice a year, their cognitive decline becomes very noticeable.
Are you falling behind on your schedule in your practice because you cannot focus and concentrate like you used to?
Do you find it more difficult to focus and concentrate during patient intakes or case reviews?
Do you fatigue more easily, have to see fewer patients, or take more days off?
Do you find it more difficult to retain information from seminars than you did in the past?
Is the success of your practice declining?
One of the things that we’re going do in this course is teach you — the healthcare professional — how to improve your own cognition and brain function.
I will teach you the things you can do on a day-to-day basis to light up your brain, ensure you have the best brain endurance, and optimize your recall.
These neurological attributes play an enormous role in your daily function as a healthcare provider and in the longevity of your career.
It’s possible the first and most important cognitive decline patient you have to treat is YOU.
A frequently overlooked factor in cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s: Dental health
Dental health can have a huge impact on the progression and development of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers have found dental conditions such as gingivitis and periodontal disease can infiltrate the vascular system and promote atherosclerotic plaquing.
The same mechanism takes place in the brain.
The bacterial organisms from gingivitis and periodontal disease infiltrate the brain and promote the development of neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
As a clinician, some of the things you have to look at in patients experiencing cognitive decline is:
How is their dental health?
Do they have a bloody toothbrush?
Does brushing their teeth cause pain?
You may even want to look at their gums to see if they’re red and swollen.
This is just one of the many steps you must consider when developing a personalized treatment approach for people suffering from cognitive decline or Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s: Type 3 diabetes
Researchers are increasingly referring to Alzheimer’s as type 3 diabetes due to the impact of high blood sugar on the brain.
Insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, and diabetes are all cases of chronically high blood sugar that have devastating impacts on the brain.
Insulin surges and high blood sugar disrupt cellular function in the brain, causing mitochondria to being failing and impairing the brain’s ability to use glucose for energy.
Chronic insulin surges from high blood sugar also turn on the brain’s immune cells, or microglia, leading to ongoing neuroinflammation. This impacts the vascular system in the brain, promoting oxidative stress and the development of advanced glycation end products.
The end result for the patient is accelerated neurodegeneration and symptoms of cognitive decline and the onset of dementia.
One of the things you absolutely have to do when you are working with a patient who has cognitive decline is assess insulin resistance. It must be managed and reversed if you’re going to have any success at improving their cognitive function and reversing their risk for developing further dementia or neurodegenerative patterns.

Testimonials about the Kharrazian Institute courses
The very first course I attended with Dr. Kharrazian was his Functional Endocrinology course back in 2003 and boy did that ever rock my world. His Kharrazian Institute Neuroinflammation course just did the same thing… but on a MUCH larger scale. It’s a total game changer. Paradigm shifting. I’m 20+ years in practice and I’ve noticed patients are getting so much harder to treat, with much more complex and chronic issues, and now I have a much better understanding why and what to do about it! Dr. K — thank you for putting this revolutionary information together!
I’ve practiced 23 years and one of my biggest pet peeves was “shooting blind.” By this I mean, “It’s been determined by years of clinical use that such and such a remedy is good for the treatment of X.” I always felt inadequate, exposed, and unsure of the variables. I can’t express in words the degree of appreciation I have for your dedication to determining mechanisms, researching studies, and most importantly breaking down this disparate information into readily accessible and mostly easy to understand, maps of malfunctioning physiology. I have found it invaluable. As you repeatedly stressed at your Functional Neurology Seminars program in the past, it’s sloppy clinical work to proceed with treatment until a clear picture of where the dominos fell first is figured out, so the appropriate treatment is arrived at. A million thanks to a fabulous contributor.
This seminar was more eye opening about why some of these chronic failures we’ve all had as practitioners need more of a neuro-metabolic approach and to give yourself and the patient time and give realistic expectations so we both don’t get burned out or disappointed. That was huge for me. Thanks Dr. Kharrazian.
This has been a freaking gorgeous course. Looking forward to the digestive health course in September.
What a blessing to have been able to follow that neuroinflammation course. Full of scientific data but lots of clinical applications that are very helpful for practitioners. I’m very happy to be able to follow that course since nothing is available like this in France. This should be taught in med school. Thank you Dr. Datis Kharrazian!
What a brilliant lecture and very clinical. Hammering home the points and reviewing while we went along really prepared me for the exam. So practical and I will be attending the next two in the series. Very well done. Really can’t say enough good things today. Thanks to everyone involved to pull it off and make livestream possible for me here in Canada.
Dr. Kharrazian has literally given me hope and if I could use one word to describe my weekend it would be “PROFOUND”. I am truly grateful for you!!!
Thanks for the excellent, clinically translatable course; with much appreciation for the lucid organization and abundant supportive documents.
