"A Toxic Brain" provides more than hope with science-backed proven protocols and lifestyle interventions to prevent and reverse cognitive decline and other chronic inflammatory illnesses.
Sandra Strauss awakened to find her husband slumped over his computer, speaking strangely and not acting at all like the man she had known for more than 30 years. He was rarely ever sick, but now exhibited many alarming symptoms. Yet, none of the extensive medical tests he would undergo revealed any definitive issues. She embarked upon a quest for answers as to what had transformed him so suddenly into a stranger.
She found valuable insights consulting with a biotoxin researcher whose revolutionary research demonstrated a genetic susceptibility as a poor detoxifier, noted in about 25% of the population, which ramps up inflammatory responses.
Yet, this research along with analysis of root causes of inflammation leading to chronic inflammatory illnesses, is not often part of traditional evaluations. A startling realization struck Sandra: Could there be legions of people sitting in doctor's offices, undergoing tests that don't reveal underlying issues, yet resulting in debilitating fates from undiagnosed root causes of inflammation? What if the roots of their illnesses were identified early enough or treated with therapies that might possibly change their health destinies? With environmental exposures so prevalent now, why aren't patients tested regularly for them?
Written in collaboration with Dan Watts, MD, "A Toxic Brain" alerts readers to the connections between toxic exposures to dementias, autoimmune disorders, and other chronic inflammatory conditions, as well as other common contributing factors. Readers gain insights into the impact of toxins and other root causes for these illnesses, especially critical in our inflammatory times. Diseases caused by them are devastating lives and swamping precious resources, so consumer awareness is vital to support vibrant health destinies.
Sandra unpacks a 12-year rollercoaster ride of cognition, care, and emotional highs and lows, resulting from Rick's frightening fall from seemingly perfect health into a neurological nightmare. As an endurance run of body, mind, and heart, she also shares the raw details of other matters related to dementing illnesses—relationship shifts, family dynamics, legal concerns, and financial consequences. Sandra also offers valuable strategies for critical self-care essential for sustaining spirits.
"A Toxic Brain" is a well-documented journey. Readers will gain insights into the paradigm of care that now exists for treating 21st century health issues. Precision evaluations combined with effective treatments are transforming health destinies, including those conditions once believed to be irreversible.
At a time when millions are suffering and dying from neurological issues and other chronic inflammatory illnesses, and families reeling from all the demands that accompany them, "A Toxic Brain" highlights the importance of shifting the paradigm of patient care to transform wellness in a world out of balance. If you or a loved one are suffering from symptoms impacting both body and brain, undergoing test after test in hopes of a diagnosis, or been given one that doesn't seem to fit, "A Toxic Brain" is a must-read. This book was written because answers do exist.
