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

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.
BATHING TO HELP REDUCE INSECTS ON YOUR PET:
- 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.
