This is unbelievable. I don’t know much about soy, we drink natural milk right from the cow when we can get it. But this Soy story is not exactly what i expected but then again, it is pushed by the FDA so it has to be good. At any rate it is relevant to night sweats and menopause if you want you can read the entire article with the link below.
My own encounters with soy aren’t as dire as Dianne’s, but the effect soy had on me was none-the-less distressful. When I entered menopause, I took soy isolfavones to help reduce my miserable menopausal night sweats and to combat the belly I was building.
The night sweats didn’t stop and the meno-pot magnified. I burped all the time and had alternating bouts of constipation and diarrhea.
My moods swung wildly all day, all evening and into my sleep. I cut back on my meat and fat intake and ate more carbohydrates, upping my soy supplements.
Big mistake. I was physically and mentally miserable and I kept getting fatter.
My doctor wanted to give me Prilosec for the burping, take a stool softener for my constipated days, an anti-depressant for my irritable and unpredictable mood swings, Lunesta to help me sleep and HRT for my increasing menopausal symptoms.
