All about Soy
Is anyone able to drink soy milk? Or eat products that contain soy? What is the deal with soy? Why can't we have it?
I seem to be ok with Silk Soymilk, most of the time. It appears to me that cows milk causes me to burn more. But, today i drank some hot soymilk with about 1/8 cup of coffee in it and I noticed a slight burn.Boni

Ok with soy?
I am fine however I don't use anything you'd buy in a store...the soy I drink really helps me with a lot of health issues that I have. Mine is a powder that I put in Tropicana Low Acid No Pulp orange juice. Until I started using the supplements & vitamins that I use I couldn't even drink the orange juice, now I'm eating strawberries it's wonderful!! Looking forward to trying grapefruit too, I have missed that:-)

I can't. I tried it early on in my elimination diet and it made me flare! Which is tragic, because I have a major aversion to cows milk....Hugs and Wishes for Pain FREE days!!,

Read some of Bev's old Fresh Taste articles. She wrote about soy, and it was very informative.Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

Once I went on a soy diet to try to lower my cholesterol. I drank soy mild, ate soy burgers, soy steak strips, soy chicken, soy ice cream. After about a month I had a very bad bladder, vulva, urethra flare. My Gyno took a blood serum level of estrogen. Even though I was taking 1 mg of Estradiol my level was about 20 when it should have been about 120. She said soy is an estrogen blocker and blocked my estrogen, hence the flare of UT symptoms.
I never ate much soy after that. It is also interesting that in the Orient the amount of soy they eat in a week is about one soy shake is here. They also eat it in whole food method not concentrated form. Tofu, Edamae and so on.

I was in denial about soy for a long time.....I didn't want to think it bothered me, but when I started taking it out, I felt so much better. Every now and then I accidently eat something with soy and I feel it..........Hugs, Julie B

Hi there! I think I do okay on soy. I mostly just drink soymilk on occassion. I like other soy products, but tend not to eat it too often. I love both soy and skim milk and drink them both fairly often without any significant problems. I'm sure it's like anything else, it's different for all of us.
