Revival Soy Doctor Q&A's
Name: Donna

If I am on the highest form of Prempro and my doctor wants to lower the dosage will soy help substitute for the lack of estrogen? Will there be a big drop in the way I feel?

Hello Donna,

Thank you for your question.

Before we get started, please read the following: We do not give medical advice. We provide nutritional information regarding Revival Soy products and information available in the public domain for the uses of soy. We advise you to discuss your personal medical issues with your physician. I hope our information will be helpful to you.

Can I stop HRT if I start Revival?

You should not discontinue any prescription medication without consulting your own doctor to determine what is right for you.

HRT (estrogen combined with progestin) was the standard therapy for menopause until recently when the U.S. government's National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that HRT has a host of potential side effects, including an increased risk of breast cancer, heart disease, endometrial (uterine) cancer, stroke, blood clots and gallbladder disease. For these reasons, about 60-85% of women eligible for HRT refuse to start or continue HRT. Interestingly, the NIH has found that estrogen alone does not increase breast cancer risk (only when used in combination with progestin). As expected, more women are seeking natural dietary options such as soy to support a healthier midlife transition.

Scientists became very interested in soy's potential role for menopause support after demographic studies revealed that only 9% of women living in Asia, where the diet is rich in soy, experienced hot flashes during midlife, in contrast to almost 80–90% of Western women who suffer through menopause.

Many scientists feel that soy isoflavones, which are similar to the body's estrogen in structure, may support health by lightly binding to estrogen receptors, thus, producing some of the benefits of estrogen without negative side effects.

Because soy may support menopause, energy, bone and heart health, many doctors now recommend soy as a safe, effective dietary supplement to help women support a healthy midlife transition and beyond.

Many studies now show benefits of soy for menopausal symptoms:

Many women use Revival Soy along with their prescriptions. There is no known reason why you can’t use soy protein along with prescription hormones.

*** You may be able to take a lower dose of the prescription hormones also along with Revival Soy. New evidence from Wake Forest Bowman Gray indicates that soy protein plus HRT produces additive heart health benefits. Monkey studies also suggest that soy protein use can reduce the detrimental effects of HRT on breast and endometrial tissues.

If you plan to stop HRT (after consulting your doctor), you may want to overlap use of HRT and soy for 4 to 8 weeks and then slowly taper off the HRT in order to minimize withdrawal symptoms.
