Soy products are a double edged sword in my opinion. Soy milk is actually very hard on the's surprisingly very processed and often contains a lot of sugar. My recommendation of soy is kind of antecdotal. Despite the above, I still usually get a soy misto (coffee w/ steamed soy milk) at Starbuck's 5 days a week. I've noticed that when I've stopped getting them, I do get a little more cystic acne on my chin. I wonder if the estrogens in the soy are helping to balance my testosterone levels (what causes cystic acne.) I don't know this for sure and I personally use acupuncture and a supplement called ChiroBalance to keep my periods normal and ovulation a "go." BUT I wouldn't rule out a little soy either. Try it and see if it works for you. Perhaps in a supplement, instead of soy milk. But I wouldn't mess around with it too much, without a doctors supervision.

This is a fantastic answer that accurately notes both sides of the soy debate. Soy can be great for many conditions and general health if it's high quality and consumed in moderation... too often soy is marketed as a wonder-substance! Thanks Kerry.
