On the Podcast: Sandra Strauss Untangles the Toxic Brain

By Marianne Sciucco, New York, USA

When Sandra Strauss’ husband, Rick,  suddenly manifested a wide array of physical and behavioral symptoms, she was determined to uncover the truth behind the cause. Unbeknownst to them, Rick had a rare genetic predisposition that made him highly susceptible to environmental toxins–a factor that could be making countless people sick. Sandra’s journey to uncover the truth has now become a mission to help others navigate this complex terrain as she embarks on writing a book, “A Toxic Brain: Revelations from a Health Journey,” to share her experience and raise awareness.


In this episode, you will be able to:

  • Discover the powerful connection between environmental toxins and the development of brain disorders and dementia
  • Recognize the crucial role of addressing cognitive decline at its roots and understanding its early signs
  • Master practical solutions to caregiving challenges such as driving limitations and effective communication
  • Uncover the importance of seeking educated and functional medical professionals when addressing dementia care.
  • Harness the benefits of prioritizing self-care, mental health, and support networks for caregivers
