THE CENTER FOR FUNCTIONAL MEDICIN
Local Clinician Recognized as a ReCODE 2.0 Certified Physician by AHNP HEALTH
Dr. Coby L. Hanes, DC, IFMCP Joins Elite Group of ReCODE 2.0 Certified Physicians
Dr. Coby Hanes, an IFM certified Functional Medicine physician and chiropractor, has completed Dr. Dale Bredesen’s ReCODE 2.0 (Reversal of Cognitive Decline) Advanced Clinical training, and has become one of the first ReCODE 2.0 certified physicians in Oregon.
Until now, treatment for Alzheimer’s disease has been completely unsuccessful, with over 400 failed clinical drug trials. However, a new study using precision medicine to identify and target the key drivers of Alzheimer’s has provided the first clinical trial success.
The successful results of the study “Precision Medicine Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease: Successful Pilot Project” were published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. The study participants were assessed and treated using Dr. Bredesen’s ReCODE 2.0 protocol, doing a deep dive into their genetics and biomarkers to provide an optimal, personalized and precision medicine protocol for each. Eighty-four percent of the participants showed cognitive improvement in this first-of-its-kind study.
An estimated 6.5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s today and 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. It kills more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.1,2
ReCODE 2.0 – short for “Reversal of Cognitive Decline,” is an advanced clinical training program developed by Dr. Dale Bredesen, to prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline. The training is designed to identify and target the root causes of cognitive decline, such as inflammation, insulin resistance, hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, and other factors.
Dr. Hanes notes that the protocol incorporates advanced laboratory testing and analysis to identify specific biomarkers and genetic factors which may contribute to cognitive decline, often long before any symptoms develop.
The protocol also involves a thorough assessment of each individual’s cognitive function, health status, as well as their genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that may affect brain function.
Dr. Hanes reports that once we identify the imbalances or deficiencies, we provide personalized diet and lifestyle recommendations, nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, and other modifications to help individuals achieve optimal brain health.
ReCODE 2.0 is an advanced approach to cognitive enhancement and requires a high level of expertise and training to implement effectively and is conducted under the guidance of a trained healthcare practitioner.
Dr. Coby L. Hanes specializes in the treatment of autoimmune disease and neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. He is an IFM certified Functional Medicine physician and is certified in Botanical Medicine through the University of Colorado, School of Pharmacy. He also participated in “Pharmacy From the Rain Forest” an educational voyage, deep into the Amazon Rainforest of Peru, where he studied with two of the world’s leading scholars in botanical medicine James Duke, Ph.D., and the late Varro Tyler, Ph.D. Dr. Hanes has completed many post-doctoral programs including; “Mastering The Thyroid,” an intensive on “Mastering Brain Chemistry,” and is involved in on-going education in the advancements of Functional Neurology, Functional Medicine, Coldwave laser treatment and Functional Movement Training. Dr. Hanes is one of Oregon’s first physicians to be certified in Dr. Dale Bredesen’s ReCODE 2.0 protocol, having recently completed the Advanced Clinical training.

Dr. Bredesen’s bestselling book, The End Of Alzheimer’s, offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive decline. The book fundamentally changes how we understand cognitive decline, revealing that Alzheimer’s disease is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but there are at least six distinct subclasses of the condition.
Dr. Dale Bredesen, MD, is an internationally recognized expert in neurodegenerative disease and researcher in cognitive decline. He has served as Chief Resident in Neurology at UCSF and was the founding President of the Buck Institute. Dr. Bredesen has been studying Alzheimer’s for 40 years and has contributed over 220 scientific articles on the subject. His ReCODE 2.0 protocol has successfully reversed cognitive decline in patients with early Alzheimer’s disease.4,5 In one study, improved cognition was seen in 90% of patients with AD or its precursors.3 A larger follow-up study titled Reversal of Cognitive Decline: 100 Patients – showed documented improvements in cognition and brain imaging. The patients had sustained improvement, some were able to return to work, and the patients, their spouses, and their co‐workers all reported clear improvements.5
