I have not noticed any negative side effects from using Soy yet.I dont use a whole lot of it though.If i have one cup a day that is a lot.I was never a big milk drinker so replacing milk with soy milk wasnt such a big deal for me.I will keep you posted if i feel anything weird after having soy.Soy sauce seems to give me a headache.Maybe it's because it's fermented and i'm reacting to a fermented product.
As for the flaxseed,Flaxseeds are great for preventing colon cancers and other types of estrogen positive cancers.It's good for those who are estrogen sensitive too.You must use ground flaxseed though.Whole flax is almost impossible to digest and anyone who has a history of diverticulitus would not want to use whole flaxseed.The best form is GROUND flaxseed meal.It's easiest to digest and you will get the more of the benefit of flaxseed if you use the ground.Naturally,Flaxseed binds with estrogens that are naturally found in the colon and brings it out.Either way,flaxseed oil and the meal have high omega 3 fatty acids.Two tablespoons of flaxseed meal has 2,400 mg of omegas.Check what your oil has per tablespoon.The Omegas are supposed to be great for reducing inflammation.
There is great info on anti-inflammatory diets and diets that reduce estrogens on Dr.Weil's website.He has diets and other formulas that are great for people with autoimmune issues ect...it's worth checking out.I'm on his website at least twice a week.
Hi Always Rosie,
Yep,your right about the microwave.When i had my breast cancer scare two years ago i stopped using the microwave all together.It kills and even changes the cellular structure of the food.There is a study out there on plants.They took plants and watered them with microwaved water,plain tap water and rainwater....the plant with the microwaved water almost had no growth in the 30 days study.The plant with the rain water grew best.They theorized that the minerals in the water either changed or were altered somehow from the microwave.
I watch Rachel Ray too I LOVE the Food Network channel too.I think i'm just a ''foodie''.Love watching people cook and LOVE to cook too.That's a New York Italian for ya
I also read that even certain containers that are said to be 'microwave safe'' are not very safe at all.During the heating process some of the plastics or whatever the container is made are released (in small amounts) into our food.I think for most of us in addition to the autoimmine issues;we have some chemical sensitivities too.I'm certain i do anyway and really dont feel like eating plastic..lol It's not on my menu
I did a TON of research on autoimmunity in dogs.Also vaccines and i have one study i can send to you on your email.It's an active study being done at Purdue University.Our breed has so many issues.Mostly coat issues but most if not all are autoimmune.We have Black Skin Disease or Alopecia X and under that umbrella is Cushings,Addisons,Follicular dysplasia,Sex Hormone Resposive Alopecia and many others.It's sad to have this beautiful show dog go bald and have issues that are hard to fix.I have my guys on a pretty strict regiman and it begins in UTERO and continues on through weaning and adulthood.I have not had any coat loss issues in my breeding program YET.Oh and i use RAIN WATER to spritz my dog's coats during brushing.It makes a difference and YES i totally see the difference in my plants and flowers after a rain storm.The colors are more vibrant and the grow overnight.
