Why Soy-Based Foods Need to be Eliminated for Natural Fertility
Soy is in everything. It’s also heavily sprayed with genetically modified organisms (GMO’s). Like corn, it’s a cheap cash crop. There is nothing cheap about you, so these foods are not recommended. The other thing is that soy is a hormone disruptor for both men and women. Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!
Soybeans contain such strong anti-nutrition factors that we strongly recommend that you check all products you buy for soy additives. Avoid the following soy-based products:
- Soy milk
- Soy-based meat substitute products
There is one exception. That is soy foods fermented using traditional methods. This won’t cause you harm and the first two are actually highly beneficial in this form.
- Organic soy sauce
Unfermented soy products contain phytoestrogens that are harmful to your body. They limit oxygen to your cells. Thousands of studies show the negative health consequences of soy. Dr. Kaayla Daniel’s book The Whole Soy Story highlight many of these, including:
- Digestive distress
- Immune-system breakdown
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Cognitive decline
- Heart disease
- Breast cancer
- Brain damage
- Infant abnormalities
- Thyroid disorders
- Kidney stones
- Immune system impairment
- Severe, potentially fatal, food allergies
- Reproductive disorders and impaired fertility
- Danger during pregnancy and nursing
Did you notice that second to last item in the above list? Yes, I bet you did! Avoid soy as part of your natural fertility program. Consider letting it go permanently except, perhaps, when you’re out for Japanese food at a restaurant. They generally ferment soy properly.
