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.

I went to this company in hopes of getting my father good care for his Alzheimers. Instead it has turned into a nightmare. First they have been very unorganized and haven't communicated well at all. Second they came to my home to draw bloods on my father and took 13 vials of blood all at one time. My father started looking pale with a glazed look in his eyes and was pulling his arm away from the phlebotomist who was through "You Choose Labs" and the phlebotomist pulled his arm back towards her and forced him to continue. I watched in shock and disbelief and was trying to lay the recliner down that my father was sitting in to try to help him. She quickly got all her stuff and left not caring about him and within minutes after she left my dad was seizing and barely breathing. We had to call an ambulance and when they arrived his blood pressure was 57/32 and they were concerned of cardiac arrest. He was finally somewhat stabilized for them to rush him to the hospital and the end result was too much blood volume loss. So ever since this happened my dad is way worse with the Alzheimers then before. He went from moderate to severe Alzheimers because the stress of what they put him through made things worse now. So they never helped him. They only made him worse. Also once the blood work came back I had an appt set to go over his results and afterward they said they were going to send his supplements report over to me so I could order the recommended supplements. They never did. I had to call 2 seperate times and still got nothing sent to me. 2 weeks into this and still no list of supplements to start giving him It was on the 3rd call as I was crying on the phone that they finally sent it over to me. So I do not recommend this company at all to help with anyone with Alzheimer's. It was a horrible experience and now my Dad is worse then before we started. I regret doing it. My Poor Dad and what all he went through. Also it is mostly supplements they prescribe and they are extremely expensive and ins does not cover this. So be prepared to spend a large amount of money.
