Do Total Estrogen Blood Test Results Include Xenoestrogens?

Posted on October 21st, 2015

What is a xenoestrogen?

The word xeno means alien or strange. According to Wikipedia, “xenoestrogens are a type of xenohormone that imitates estrogen. They are either synthetic or natural chemical compounds”.

It is becoming more and more apparent every day that humans and animals are being exposed to many different xenoestrogen products that may cause major diseases.

Many major diseases have been proven to be caused by elevated levels of estrogen, but upon testing humans or animals for total estrogen, xenoestrogens are not measured in the standard estrogen blood test and may go by unnoticed.

This occurs because xenoestrogen are not true estrogens, but rather estrogen mimickers.

This unfortunately makes the exposure to xenoestrogens difficult to diagnose, but may cause many different health problems that are associated with elevated estrogen, but when total estrogen is measured in a patient, their levels of total estrogen will be normal.

Since the endocrine system regulates the immune system, without testing for the different xenoestrogens, a significant finding will be that the patient has deficient immunoglobulins (antibodies) even with normal amounts of measurable total estrogen.

If this is the case, by funding the negative feedback mechanism to the hypothalamic pituitary axis, with a small amount of active cortisol, reduction of the natural production of adrenal estrogen may occur, and also a reduction of the combination of xenoestrogen and adrenal estrogen.

When this occurs, the immunoglobulins levels should increase, but unfortunately if there is an overload of xenoestrogens, lowering the natural adrenal estrogen may have no effect.

There also have been reports of genetically induced, deficient immunoglobulins, but this is rare.

In humans and in animals, when you suspect this is occurring, if the xenoestrogen has lowered the immunoglobulin A (IgA) below a certain level, oral cortisol supplements will not be absorbed and will not lower the adrenal estrogen.

Xenoestrogens are found in many, many various products that cause exposer to ourselves and to our animals.

Xenoestrogens are found in household products, GMO foods, personal hygiene products, industrial products including plastics, building products, and insecticides, etc.

This article will only discuss the dangers of using different household products that contain xenoestrogens.

Many household items like cleaning products, air fresheners, bath products, toothpaste, plus mouthwashes that contain different types of parabens, which are xenoestrogens.

It has only been shown recently, that the general public has been made aware of the use of these potentially dangerous products that contain xenoestrogens.

Many years ago, endocrine immune imbalance was a small percentage of diseases that were diagnosed and treated. As time progressed, endocrine immune diseases have been quite prevalent, not only causing allergies and autoimmunity, but also cancer.

The exposure and harm we are experiencing and identifying today, probably started 30 to 40 years ago when xenoestrogens were not identified and not thought to be unhealthy.

Before you ever expose yourself or your pet to any product, whether natural or synthetic, always read the label.

However, further frustration comes from many labels that are inaccurate.

A recent study done by Chapman University, here in California, involved DNA studies on 50 different pet foods, and they found 20 of those foods to be mislabeled, with unlabeled ingredients.

This article will list and discuss some of those synthetic chemicals you need to avoid for yourself, your family and your family pet.

A paraben is a class of xenoestrogen used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries, as a preservative to stop bacterial and fungal growth in their products.

This may be important for the manufacturers to sustain non-bacterial and non-fungal products for your protection and theirs, but are they exposing you to far greater dangers by using a xenoestrogen?

What are the hidden, health dangers for you, your family and your pet?

In a recent article appearing in The Daily Health journal from the United Kingdom, it states that the Journal of Toxicology recently published that researchers that tested the malignant mammary tissue of 160 human patients, found that 99% of the tissues contained at least one type of paraben (xenoestrogen).

Parabens are known for their xenoestrogens, which may be the cause of allergies, autoimmunity and many different types of cancers and other catastrophic diseases.

My clinical studies in animals have shown that all of the cancer patients that I have treated over the years, whether humans or animals, all had elevated total estrogen, which not only measures ovarian estrogen but also adrenal estrogen in both males and females.

An even greater danger lies with being exposed to a xenoestrogen, because it will not be included in the tests for total estrogen and therefore will be missed as the culprit causing these diseases, because the total estrogen will remain normal.

My clinical studies have further indicated that a normal elevated total estrogen, which include deficient immunoglobulins (antibodies), may indicate a patient’s exposure to xenoestrogens.

A simple blood test may help diagnose this exposure.

What are some of the commonly used household products that may contain parabens (xenoestrogens)?

The names of the following chemicals may be foreign to many of us, but their side effects will be available on the internet and you might merely use this article for reference information.

  • According to The Daily Health Journal, be aware of products used for bathing that contain sodium lauryl sulfate, cocoamide DEA and parabens.
  • Be aware of products that are contained in deodorants like DMDM hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, and limonene.
  • Makeup, like eyeshadow, may contain propyleneglycol, bronopol and formaldehyde.
  • Mascaras may contain nano particles and perfumes may contain isopropyl alcohol, phthalates and fragrances.
  • Prescription medications may contain chemicals, preservatives, colorings and stabilizers which will cause xenoestrogen exposure.
  • Toothpaste, mouthwash and breath fresheners may all contain fluoride, which is a dangerous neurotoxin even though it is routinely added to our municipal water supply.
  • Many cleaning products contain trichosanthes which can be inhaled and may be very damaging even though you are wearing rubber gloves.
  • Air fresheners contain limonene and linalool.

What about eating a simple breakfast?

  • Coffee and tea may contain fluorides and pesticides.
  • Some artificial sweeteners contain synthetic roach poison, while other artificial sweeteners are processed in formaldehyde.
  • You need to be concerned about manufactured fruit juices because they may contain artificial colorings, additives and high amounts of fructose from corn syrup.

A further concern of mine is that the fructose that may be refined from corn, may have been produced from genetically modified seeds. GMO corn and grains may even be a bigger problem for all of us now and definitely in the future. Russia just passed a law making GMO foods illegal. For more information, please go to Dr. Plechner’s and read about Genetically Modified Foods.

Bacon and other processed meat products may contain parabens and sodium nitrites.

Jams and jellies often contain high levels of corn fructose.

Manufacturers believe that a small amount of parabens contained in their products, will cause no health problems.

In reality this may not be true, however after prolonged use and in combination with other products that contain parabens, there are definite health concerns involving xenoestrogens.

By using all these household products for our pleasure and convenience, are we subtlety killing ourselves, our family and our pets?

To help prevent xenoestrogens from causing humans and animals this unsuspected damage, Mother Nature has created a nutritional clay that comes from volcanic ash and from ancient biological sea beds, that contains a very strong negative ion.

This negative ion will bind with xenoestrogens and neutralize them and allow the body to excrete them, without the xenoestrogens causing disease.

This strong negative ion that nutritional clay possesses, will also chelate out of the body damaging heavy metals, toxins, pesticides and neutralize radiation.

For further information on nutritional clay, please go to Books on my website and view How Living Clay Can Help Your Pet Live Healthier.

I hope this article will make you aware of some of the subtle xenoestrogens that reside in many of the routine products that we use for ourselves and in our environment that may be an important health deterrent for you, your family and your family pets to avoid, when possible.
