Why Removing Soy From Your Diet Helps Your Thyroid

Even though there are claims that suggest modest amounts of soy are safe, do you know how much soy you’re getting? I believe you’ll be surprised when you start reading the food labels. You’re getting more than you think. It’s hidden in so many products and when you add soy protein drinks and bars you are consuming too much. Here are some of the very serious issues that people have been raising for years. Research is just scratching the surface about whether the dangers are real or not, but I don’t want my future generations to suffer.

Promoters of soy products such as soy protein isolate, or phyto-estrogens extracted from soy, usually fail to mention that soy products are goitrogenic to humans. That means they depress thyroid function. Certain substances found in the soybean inhibit thyroid hormone synthesis, leading to goiter and other adverse changes in the thyroid gland. Low thyroid function is associated with a host of debilitating diseases including cancer, heart disease, fatigue, osteoporosis, and a difficult menopause.

So, if you are taking soy for your menopause, it is depressing your thyroid and it may cause you to have a more difficult menopause. Try eating whole nutrient dense foods including animal fats, but avoid processed commercial foods. Isoflavones can inhibit thyroid peroxidase (TPO), an enzyme involved in the synthesis of thyroid hormones. As their name implies, some research suggests that goitrogens can cause an enlarged thyroid, known as a goiter, by increasing the amount of thyroid stimulating hormone. People can get goiters and other thyroid problems from either an iodine deficiency or in some cases from iodine excess.Iodine is important in other areas of metabolic regulation.

We all are aware of Oprah’shypothyroidism. Did you knowthat Christiane Northrup, MD, author of The Wisdom of Menopause, has been Oprah’s consultant, and is a big promoter of soy?Did you know she has hypothyroidism? What a coincidence! If you are menopausal and gaining weight, did it ever occur to you that you could be developing a thyroid problem? It is my belief that if Oprah removed soy from her diet and ate more whole foods and less processed foods she would lose the weight.Sowhy not give it a shot? Shehas tried everything else without success.

About the author: Dianne Gregg, author of “The Hidden Dangers of Soy” decided to write this book after developing a severe allergy to soy and nearly dying. She has done extensive research on this subject and wanted to share this crucial information to protect your health. The fact of the matter is that soy is not the “health food” it’s cracked up to be. Dianne has appeared on numerous radio shows and seen on TV CBS4. She hosts her own radio show Tuesdays, 4pm – 5pm EST and interviews experts in the health and wellness industry.

    I have one large fibroid and a few small ones.
    Large as 16 weeks fetus.

    • ANSWER:
      The doctor who performed my surgery told me it could increase or decrease my chances for getting pregnant. The reason was b/c of my fibroids being in so many places(i had 7 golf ball size ones inside & out) they would have to cut and sew in different places that the scar tissue would make it harder. But he was very careful during the surgery and i have minimal scar tissue. So if you are planning on having this surgery done, make sure it’s a dr who specializes in preserving the uterus and had plenty of experience w/ this type of surgery. Do your research!!! My surgery was done in April and now I am 7wks pregnant! Hope all goes well!

    I may have fibroids and have been told that the consultant will remove them on my first consultation without anasethic. My gp told me that it is a sensitive area and to do so would be unthinkable. However I have been told since by a clinic nurse that no pain relief is needed and it wont hurt. Why would my female gp lie. I am scared to death. all internet research says they use anasethic, local or general. If it is so pain free up there why do they knock you out for a D&C? what should I do. I dont want to get there, be lying vunerable and just have it done when I am in no position to protest or stop them. HELP!

    • ANSWER:

    Can someone please tell me, how is Total Hysterectomy Surgery for remove fibroids in UK?
    There is someone here, in Yahoo!Answers already made this surgery? I have big fibroids and maybe, I’ll need to remove it, so I would like to know somebody that already made this…There is too much painfull after surgery?How is the recovery after surgery? The days after surgery in a hospital? Somebody please help me, I never made any surgery in my whole life …
    Since now, thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      A lot will depend on which method of surgery is used. In the UK I believe that the majority of hysterectomies are still performed through an incision in the abdomen, but some are performed by way of the vagina and others through laparoscopy. I had a hysterectomy some years ago that was performed by an incision in the abdomen. Following surgery, I experienced some pain, but was given pain killers to help and I was not too uncomfortable. The one thing to remember, when you are first able to get out of bed following the op, (and if you’ve had the same type of surgery) you will feel that you want to bend forward when you walk – don’t do this! Even if it means walking very slowly, hold your body up straight. When I went home, I was told not to do very much for sometime, but with a family to look after, I did what I felt I could comfortably do, although I certainly didn’t lift anything for a while. Our body soon lets us know if we’re overdoing it. I had a full-time, sedentary job and was told to expect to be away from work for the usual 3 months, but I was able to return to work exactly 2 months after my op. Good luck and try not to worry too much, although it is only human nature to be fearful and you wouldn’t be normal if you didn’t experience some anxiety. I have to say that I felt really marvelous once I’d had the op and recovered – better than I had for years! (Obvoiusly, the other two methods are less invasive and the way you feel and the recovery time will differ to my experience).
