Has anyone heard of or been treated at either of these facilities .. there is one in Atlanta, GA and another in Cumming, GA .. they seem to cover a full umbrella of treatments from diagnosis to nutrition and follow ups .. any information would be appreciated

As far as I can tell, this center does not specify its protocol.  The use of the term protocol and the reference to helping those with mild cognitive impairment suggests that it is some version of the Bredesen protocol.  Dr. Bredesen suggests that Alzheimer's disease is caused by many different factors (which is true) and that if you remove or reduce these factors you can treat Alzheimer's disease (which is partially true early on).  His protocol contains several antioxidants, although not the best ones for treating Alzheimer's disease.

To date, the best treatments for Alzheimer's disease are panax/Korean red ginseng and aromatherapy with essential oils high in eugenol (rosemary, bay laurel, and lemon balm, for instance).  Drugs in clinical trials for Alzheimer's disease that are antioxidants are Anavex 2-73 (blarcamesine) and TrappsolCyclo.

My DW started on this program about three months ago in Atlanta.  They have done it all through telehealth except for the blood tests.  It's all based on a 2018 study evaluating multiple drivers contributing to ALZ and a uMETHOD artificial inteligence program.  They first took a long history of her health and her close relatives.  The next was a hour plus cognitive test online.  Then they took 19 vials of blood for an very thorough evaluation of her blood and markers that relate to ALZ.  Yes, I said 19 vials!  They had to use both arms as the first one clotted before they could get all 19 vials.  They used the blood test to recommend 7 vitamins/supplements from wholescripts.com.  They are expensive, but supposedly are cleaner and more bio-active.  Next was an hour discussion with a dietician to improve the type of foods she/we eat.  Much more organic, less processed, more colorful fruits and veggies, etc.  They will add a health coach to encourage following the protocol.  We have not seen the final report with all the recommendations, but it seems thorough.  They say that about 3/4 of their patients stop the memory decline or maybe even improve their memory.  They will check her blood and cognitive capability in 6 months.  Sounds almost too good to be true, but we are going to give it a try.  They are very specific that you have to follow the protocol rigorously to get these results.
