There is a McGill prof named Yoram Shir who has published a lot of research on soybeans suppressing neuropathic pain. Is there anyone who eats a high soy diet who can say whether or not this helps?

Hi Dave,
I used to take Soy supplements but can't say they had any effect on neuropathic or menopausal symptoms.
Just my opinion: Diet and exercise really aren't the answer to everything! ;)
Kind regards,
Karyn

What type of soy supplements have you taken, Karyn?

Gosh, I don't remember exactly what the brand name was, Dave.
They were capsules of organic soy powder with no additives or fillers and I took them 3x/day for a couple of years. Thinking back, I do remember a bit of GI upset while taking them. But that was really the only effect to my "well being".
Sorry I can't be more help.

Hi Karyn, I was mainly interested in whether it was soy protein, soy lecithin, or other. There is also a supplement obtained from soy called genistein.

Dave, I eat a lot of soy -- soy milk, soy meats, and different forms of tofu. I was raised vegetarian and I just don't like the taste of meat. I have no idea if eating soy has contributed to my improvement but I kind of doubt it -- I think it was surgery that helped in my case.

Soy is used for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and preventing diseases of the heart and blood vessels. It is also used for type 2 diabetes, asthma, lung cancer, endometrial cancer, prostate cancer, and thyroid cancer, as well as preventing weak bones (osteoporosis), and slowing the progression of kidney disease.
