Google is a fine tool...just saying'. ;) So I was curious & found this study which shows that GMO soybeans may actually be LOWER in phytoestrogens. http://www.mindfully.org/GE/Phytoestrogen-Alteration-GM-Soybeans1jul99.htm Regardless, soy... (more)

So being a male and liking to have my testosterone as high, and my estrogen as low as possible, when it came to phytoestrogens, my only thought used to be: avoid! But now I read this: " 4) Use Phytoestrogens To Promote the C-2 Pathway Include... (more)

If you avoid phytoestrogens, you are going to have to basically avoid plants. Don't do this. When people say that phytoestrogens should be avoided, I believe they are talking about the food sources of phytoestrogens which are orders of magnitude... (more)

During my period I get frequent migraines (as far as I can tell it has something to do with fluctuating estrogen levels) and drinking a glass of soy milk when I feel one coming on is the only thing I have found that stops them. Any less harmful... (more)

I'm under the impression that phytoestrogens and phytate are the main reasons non-soy-sensitive people avoid soy in the first place, and phytate is more of a "less-is-better" thing than something you need to avoid 100% in order to benefit. So if... (more)

For the past 2-3 months I have been taking 1-2 tbsps of flaxseed daily (usually just one) so that I can get more omega 3's. I understand, however, that our bodies can't convert all the omegas from flax so I do take fish oil as well and incorporate... (more)

I have PCOS which causes irregular periods to begin with. When I started low carb I thought I would have a daily flaxseed "muffin in a minute" to replace the bread I was no longer eating. Each muffin contained about 1/4 cup of ground flax. A... (more)

I am a female who stopped menstruating Dec 2011 and lost my libido when I went Paleo (not sure if there is a causal relationship). Prior to Paleo I would binge on peanut/almond butter (like eat half the jar at a time) and also consumed legumes... (more)

Your physician needs a good smackdown. Caveman style. High fat can reek havoc on female hormones, or it can help. You may have a serious case of adrenal fatigue. These little guys sit on top of your kidneys, and help regulate everything from... (more)

If you've got the time there is a pretty good doc about plummeting fertility in men on Vimeo. I especially suggest women watch this as they will essentially be the stewards of the future of the male race through care and feeding of themselves as... (more)

I get a strong phytoestrogen effect from flax. I tried a flax fiber supplement a few years ago and within 3 days I had female troubles (same effect as if I had eaten soy). Not sure how that would work for a man, but if there are other sources of... (more)
