Revival Soy Doctor Q&A's
Name: joanne

I had endometrial cancer, chemotherapy. My surgical menopause is very extreme with hot flashes, night sweats, etc. I cannot take synthetic hormones and wouldn't anyway. My question is...since Soy is an isoflavin and a natrual estrogen, would this have a negative impact since I was estrogen dominant and my cancer was estrogen receptive. I have been researching for 1-1/2 years and still do not have a definitive answer. The doctors don't really know how to treat naturally. If you could reply this would help me and others tremendously.

Hello Joanne,

Sorry to hear that you are going through such a dificult time.

Can I eat Revival if I have a history of cancer?

Human studies have not shown a downside to the consumption of soy protein as part of a balanced diet.

Soy is one of the oldest foods known to mankind and has been a staple of traditional Asian diets for thousands of years without any documented adverse effects. In fact, Asians are among the thinnest, longest living people in the world.

The FDA has not issued any warnings for soy protein or soy isoflavones. And, the FDA did not find evidence to warn any group of patients regarding soy use when it approved a heart health claim for soy protein in 1999 (i.e. soy protein lowers risk of heart disease). Some suggested to the FDA that soy could cause harm because it contains a chemical similar to the female hormone, estrogen, that might disrupt normal hormone levels. The FDA said the concerns were not supported by conclusive scientific research. While chemicals in soy do exert hormonal effects, the impact is “very limited” and much lower than that of natural or synthetic estrogens.

As always, consult your own physician to determine what is right for you, particularly if you have a personal or family history of cancer.

Soy protein will not raise or add to your estrogen levels. Soy will raise your soy isoflavone levels. Soy isoflavones will not show up on standard blood tests for estrogen levels that you get at your healthcare provider. Only special research tests can measure isoflavone levels in your blood, urine or saliva at this time.

Studies indicate that soy consumption can balance estrogen levels to a more healthier level. Soy may positively impact the way your body metabolizes estrogen, soy it may help your hot flushes, but show this to your dr and ask him if you can eat soy.

How is Revival prepared?

Naturally. Our genetically-pure (non-GMO) soybeans are de-hulled, washed with water and then baked. The beans are milled to a fine powder and then blended to make a delicious bar or shake. No irradiation is used in our process.

Revival Soy is similar to soy flour - it is food.
