The Enhance Protocol®
is a comprehensive, research-based, multi-modal approach to preventing and treating cognitive decline by detecting and addressing root causes. It was developed by Randy Vawdrey, NP-C, MSN, and the team at our partner company, A Mind for All Seasons. It is based on a synthesis of the research and recommendations of industry experts such as:
-Dale Bredesen, MD
-Richard Isaacson, MD
-Warren Willey, DO
-Chris Shade, PhD
-Daniel Amen, MD
-and many others leading the way in dementia research.
The main misconception regarding cognitive decline is that there is really nothing that can be done to slow down, or even reverse the process. Here at the Maryland Center for Brain Health, we are delighted to share with you specific things you can do to go from your current level of cognitive and physical functioning to one of greater focus, clarity, well-being and confidence.
Dr. Bredesen notes that the current approach to the treatment of Alzheimer’s is like firing a silver bullet at a 3 headed monster. You might improve your chances of survival a little bit, but it will still come after you. What is needed is a silver buckshot approach, the ability to spread out attack the enemy from multiple approaches at once.
Early detection is key!

Upon competition of your specialized labwork, your individualized Roadmap Report is created for you by our medical director, Randy Vawdrey.

They always say, Rome wasn’t built in a day and the same is true for improving brain health. Cognitive changes begin occurring 10-20 years before someone may receive an Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Quality progress takes time to undo years of decline, but the greatest journeys often start with just a single step.
