Foods and Insect Chemicals to Avoid When Treating Atypical Cortisol Estrogen Imbalance Syndrome (ACEIS or Plechner’s Syndrome)Posted on January 27th, 2017
*SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome) UPDATE
Unfortunately, since I have had to retire from my veterinary practice in California because of an injury, my son has asked me to live with him and his family in Idaho. Because I am not licensed in Idaho, by law, I am not allowed to consult or even share my opinions with you, which is unfortunate.
For those pet owners that do have canines that are afflicted with SARDS, I have included the following articles, which should help your veterinarian decide on a proper treatment for this autoimmune disease.
However, if your veterinarian feels unqualified to treat SARDS, please contact National Veterinary Diagnostic Services for a possible referral at
SARDS is an autoimmune disease, and the sooner that SARDS is diagnosed and treated, the better the chances for sight return. Conversely, the longer it takes to properly diagnose and treat a SARDS patient, the better the chances for permanent retinal damage that may not be correctable.
It is important to understand that SARDS is an autoimmune disease, which comes from an imbalance of both the endocrine and immune systems. Even if it might be too late for the treatment to provide for eye sight to return, if it is left uncorrected, other autoimmune diseases and cancer may occur.
Hopefully this information will help you keep your pet healthy, happy and live a long, successful life.
I wish you and your pet, the very best.

The cause of many diseases like allergies and autoimmune diseases, including SARDS and cancer, can be adversely affected by the use of certain foods that contain elevated amounts of plant estrogens (phytoestrogens) and chemical mimicking estrogens (xenoestrogens).
- The following is a list of foods to try to avoid.
- All soy and soy products
- All flaxseed and flaxseed products
- Sweet potatoes if non-organic
- Apples if non-organic
- Carrots if non-organic
For more information on this subject please go to www.drplechner.com and read my article titled New Information with Quantities of Phytoestrogens in the Food We Eat and Feed Our Pets.
- The following are suggestions to help avoid the use of chemical insect repellents, which are of concern for the health of any pet, but particularly for those pets that have ACEIS (Plechner’s Syndrome).
NOTE: Please keep checking on the internet for lawsuits, against companies that are manufacturing and selling chemical insect repellents. These chemicals are not only hurting pets, but they are creating insect resistance. This is why many pet owners are finding that they often need to change to a new chemical insect repellent, because the old chemical no longer works and we are now experiencing, resistant fleas and ticks as well as many other agricultural insects. The over use of agricultural insecticides is the reason why the world’s population of butterflies and bees is disappearing.
NOTE: If you are still inclined to use a monthly insect, chemical on your pet,
Please read the small print carefully.
One popular product, will indicate if you touch the product while applying it to your pet, you are asked by the manufacturer, to call Poison Center immediately, and yet you are applying this chemical to your pet. That does not make sense.
A second very popular brand of monthly insect repellent has instructions in very small letters warning you, that if you have any children that are 10 years or younger, do not let them touch their pet for 10 days.
A SAFER WAY TO BATHE YOUR PET, IN ORDER TO REDUCE FLEAS AND FUNGI.
Over the past 50 years, I have suggested the use of Head and Shoulders with Conditioner as an alternative to using a harsh chemical anti insect shampoo.
Because of the conditioner in Head and Shoulders, a pet may be bathed multiple times during the week, without fear of drying out the coat.
Head and Shoulders with Conditioner kills fleas and fungus, like ringworm.
FLEA, TICK and MOSQUITO REPELLENT:
Please go to www.wondercide.com and EVOLV, which is a cedar spray that kills ticks, fleas and mosquitos.
Please go to www.ambertech.com. They have an all-natural, apricot based, heartworm repellent that is very effective and safe to use.
NOTE: I am in no way associated with these companies but do suggest the use of their products.

B. DO YOU REALIZE THE HARM THAT MAY HAPPEN BY USING A MONTHLY INSECT REPELLANT WITH YOUR PET.
I t may be more convenient for you to use a monthly insect repellant, but you may not have to use it long, because of some of the catastrophic effects that is can cause your pet.
Hopefully this information will help your pet live a healthier, happier, longer life.
