Topic: Almond Milk (9 msgs / 297 lines)
1) From: Tim TenClay
I often hear people talk about the benefits of Soy Milk, but as you
may know people with thyroid disorders are supposed to limit their soy
intake.  In any case, my wife likes a latte every morning and I've
been making it with Unsweetened Almond Milk -- You can get it at
almost any healthfood store - I'd recommend it.
It's also has quite a few LESS calories than skim milk or soy milk.
Just FYI!
Grace and peace,
  `tim

I was just reading up about that, the thyroid thing, so i am going to try
the almond milk to see how good/bad it is.

Apologies for straying OT but I feel that this is important.
Soy is a powerful goitrogen and can harm even a healthy thyroid if eaten in
excess. Eat only fermented soy products like miso and natto, they are very
healthy for the body. The bugs have removed most if not all the problem
substances.
There is a huge, seemingly growing incidence of low thyroid function, called
Wilson's Temperature Syndrome, which may be IMO caused by the overuse of soy
products in commercially prepared foods.http://www.quackwatch.org/04ConsumerEducation/News/wilson.htmlLow thyroid function or symptoms of such in spite of normal test results can">http://www.wilsonssyndrome.com/For an opposing viewpoint:http://www.quackwatch.org/04ConsumerEducation/News/wilson.htmlLow thyroid function or symptoms of such in spite of normal test results can
often be treated with iodine supplements. There is a transdermal therapy
using Lugol's solution, and a tablet Ioderal, both have been very successful
according to local health radio programs. I have no direct experience with
these therapies.
Also check out:http://www.supernutrient.com/iodine.cfmThis page describes iodine receptor blocking by halogens. Here is another
potential cause of low thyroid. Considering the widespread use of fluorides
in drinking water and toothpaste, it is a wonder that more of us do not have
low thyroid.

I know that the phytoestrogens in soy can, if taken to excess, cause  
feminizing symptoms such as gynecomastia in men; but as Quackwatch  
points out, "Wilson's Temperature Syndrome" is a dubious diagnosis  
and may not even be a disorder.  A low temperature can also be a  
function of the pituitary, pineal and hypothalamus glands--and have  
nothing to do with the thyroid. In the absence of abnormal T3 and T4  
levels, other causes need to be ruled out for that group of symptoms.  
(Wilson was a naturopath, not an MD or DO).  And it is quite rightly  
pointed out that an excess of thyroid hormone (whether ingested or  
secreted) can be cardiotoxic--a helluva lot bigger problem than  
hypothyroidism.   Finally, in the absence of soybean allergy or  
abnormally high estrogen levels, there is no reason to avoid  
unfermented soy products like soymilk or edamame--but even a drop of  
almond milk in an individual allergic to tree nuts can cause fatal  
anaphylactic shock.  People with peanut allergies have been known to  
develop tree nut allergies without warning and in greater proportions  
than in the general population, so almond milk is not a good idea  
even if you're only allergic to peanuts but not (yet?) tree nuts.

For the record, I think the almond milk needs sweetening - We use
either splenda or a torani syrup...

Liberace used to practice endlessly on the piano, but was zealous to prevent
outsiders from hearing it. Some used to sneer at him, and he cried about
that all the way to the bank.
Then, as the story goes, he bought the bank.

I'm fond of soymilk. What size bra will I be needing?
