Red Tide – Organophosphate – Blue Green Algae – My Lab Test Results as Promised

This is really quite interesting.

Though the labs show green and I assumed that meant good at first. In reading the CDC’s website. That isn’t necessarily the case.
According to the CDC’s website (Page I am looking at here https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/csem/csem.asp?csem=11&po=16 
Level correlation with toxicity – Even with the more accurate RBC cholinesterase, the point at which various authors have suggested that toxicity begins to appear ranges from 40% to 75% of normal values. (Carlton, Simpson et al. 1998) (Romano, McDonough et al. 2001; Clark 2002)

MY RESULTS AND THE TRANSLATION:
Cholinesterase RBC came in at 11694 IU/L and the range given was 9572-15031IU/L.
That puts me at 78% of normal values….
Cholinesterase Pasma I scored 3353 IU/L and the given range is noted as 2504-6297 IU/L.
That puts me at 53% of normal values.
So even though the labs mark me as green. If symptoms noted by the CDC start at 40%…. my values are elevated enough that it very likely is my culprit in making me ill for the last 10 months.

TEST YOURSELF: I found the lab test to see if you are holding toxins from the water and air exposure here in SWFL from the Blue Green Algae and Red Tide (Cyanotoxin/Brevetoxin). This has been confirmed effective by a AnyLabTestNow representative.

The test is called the Cholinestrase RBC Plasma test. 

You can do it at either www.anylabtestnow.com or www.questdiagnostics.com code 338. And labcorps has it too. https://www.labcorp.com/test-menu/22471/cholinesterase-rbc

Requires no doctors orders. I checked with them to make sure they offer it and they do, its just not listed on their site (as they have 10,000 tests the database would be huge to create).
At Any Lab Test Now it’s $183 (they don’t accept insurance).

Quest Diagnostics is also in the $180 range. Lab corps does not accept patients without a doctors order, and insurance may or may not cover it so be sure to check beforehand.

There is free testing going on for the cyanobacteria at the Broadway palms theater soon, BUT BEWARE you dont even get your test results. It’s a blind group study!


TO DETOX:
As mentioned in previous blogs, I have just started day 1 of the neurotoxin detox today Sept 27. Its a 10 day cleanse. Ill let you know if it works. If so, ill be sharing!

There are two levels of (Red Tide)Brevetoxin/(Blue Green Algae)Cyanotoxin/ (Fertilizer)Organophosphate toxicity

If you are sick and live here in Florida, especially the West Coast of Florida please pay attention. This could help you and your family. If you think the Red Tide and Blue Green Algae, as well as the dumped Organophosphates, may be at cause check these symptoms and I have shared the information to get your blood tested in the link below to reveal environmental air and water carried toxins.

Level I – Initial exposure

  • Coughing
  • Lung issues
  • Sinus issues
  • Bowel and Digestive issues
  • Chest pressure
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Metallic taste in your mouth
  • Coating of the tongue (white-ish)
  • Blurred vision

Level II – Long-term exposure you may experience:

  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ear)
  • Memory issues
  • Brain fog
  • Joint Pain
  • Headaches
  • Muscle weakness
  • Tingling in hands and feet
  • Burning skin sensation
  • Off balance at times
  • Fatigue
  • Out of breath easily
  • Numbness or neuropathy
  • Heart Palpitations
  • Taste and smell sensitivity
  • Thyroid issues
  • Leaky Bladder
  • Body odor and excessive sweating
  • Anxiety issues

These are all signs of potential neurological poisoning. Please also pay attention to your pets. They are not immune.

There is a blood test for this, despite the CDC saying there isn’t.

My initial blog and my experience https://sarahbarendse.com/2018/09/13/red-tide-isnt-over-and-it-could-very-well-be-making-you-sick/

IF YOU ARE EXPOSED: I am working closely with my Nutritionist/Chiropractor and his team of experts to test out a neurological detox program. I will keep you all posted.
