As an Asian in America I learned she is consuming a lot of tofu - an unfermented soy product. Soy, even organic, is high in glutamates. She had a neurological issue with her right hand as well...which is an indication of MSG, excitotoxins or glutamate intake. Like many, she fell victim to THE GREAT SOY DECEPTION, and the marketing ploy touting soy as a health food. It is not. I can assure you that soy contributes to a number of issues....according to neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock, thyroid expert Dr. David Brownstein, and cancer expert and healer Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez.
As many think ahead to a healthier new year and maybe getting back into the swing of juicing and smoothies here is a question for you. Is soy protien isolate in your smoothie? An excellent video by some of my favorite MDs re: soy and thyroid. Pancreatic cancer and the soy relation is also discussed - when you think about it...soy is in almost ALL of our processed foods in one form or another. It is one of the major inflammatory food groups, and one that is suggested to eliminate on the Arbonne 30 day program.
For the woman I met today who eats pretty healthy, I suggested she eliminate the soy for 30 days and see how she feels. My gut tells me she will cool down, become more calm, reduce the anxiety, and be more comfortable in general.
Still deceived by soy as a health food? Watch the video below to learn more....
