Soy and Thyroid Health Concerns
Show Notes

There are several health benefits associated with soy, especially in its fermented form. At the same time, we’ve all heard about the risks associated with phytoestrogens, goitrogenic properties, and more.

So, should everyone with a thyroid condition avoid soy?

Today I’m sharing my soy recommendations for people with thyroid health conditions and why I take a different approach depending on whether you’re restoring your health or in remission.

In this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • Health benefits of soy
  • Differentiating between soy allergies and soy sensitivity
  • The problem with phytates and lectins
  • Why I recommend eating organic fermented soy
  • Whether you should be concerned about the goitrogenic properties of soy
  • What research shows about phytoestrogens in soy

As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
