"One of this podcast series. We learned about the wave study and the promising results that it offered. And then we also learned as i said that soy is a huge part of the study but i would imagine because of the prevailing theories about soy that. There are a lot of people who are going to hear about this study. And they're going to be like it. Sounds pretty good. But switches makes me nervous You do hear these miss quite a lot in the the big one is this. Soy products have eyeso- flavonoids in them Natural compounds but maybe those compounds could cause breast cancer because they might adhere to the estrogen. Receptor if you go online you'll see lots and lots of writing like this and which also means it. Scientists have had a lot of time to study it and see what it is Chuck let me show us a couple of slides really quickly if you don't mind because it's important to look at the data on this sure In two thousand eight researchers did a meta analysis. And that's where you combine the results of prior studies in this case it was eight prior studies and the groups that they really focused in on where people who consumed a lot of sorts. So he could see. Is it safe you Quantities tofu soy milk me so tempe every day. So they looked at asians asian-americans and what they found kind of blew everybody away. The connection between soy cancer was it. Soy reduced the risk of breast cancer and it did it quite a lot by twenty nine percent in other words. The women could suing the most ahead twenty nine percent less risk of breast cancer compared to women who kind of neglected soy so looks like a preventive but they went further a at least five. Different studies have looked at women who had cancer treatment already and in some cases they avoid so afterwards in some cases they continue to have it. It turns out that those women who who continue to have soy those having the most soy greatly reduced their likelihood dining of cancer.

"Welcome to the exam room. Podcast brought to you by the physicians committee high. I am the weight loss champion. Chuck carroll thank you so very much for raising your health. Iq with us this episode fifty nine of season four number two hundred fifty four overall and this also happens to be part two of our three part series on the waves study. And that's just a cool name for study about hot flashes. In as we learned in part one four out of five women will suffer from them during menopause. That means the four out of five women will be losing sleep and feeling uncomfortable and maybe even feeling like they're losing their mind because these hot flashes just won't stop and a lot of women they may also feel like they've lost hope they've given up but is until now because what. This research offers is a glimmer of light for that hopeless feeling. The study shows that women who switched to a low fat plant based diet that includes soy experienced in eighty four percent reduction in moderate to severe hot flashes. Eighty four percent. And that's without any additional hormone therapies or medication and for a lot of women. The hot flashes disappeared altogether on the program. Today we will be focusing on one particular part of that diet. We're going to be zeroing in on that daily dose of soy because there is a lot of information out there about and it can be hard to separate what's true from what's not we've even done these. Soy mythbusters shows right here on the exam room but today we're going to go even deeper on those real facts about soy and whether it should have been getting this bomb rap for all of these years and to help us decipher so a fact from soy fiction is dr neil barr. He'll be answering your questions as well. When we opened up the doctors mailbag and also today inspiration will be continuing our conversations with women who have done. What many say is on thankful. They brought their hot flashes under control without that hormone therapy instead. They used only what was in their kitchen today. You will hear the story of anne marie pedrick. I had the opportunity to speak with her recently. And i asked her to walk us through her experience what she learned and how those horrific hot flashes that had been burning out of became well contained. But i still little fact versus fiction. Soy.

"Weight came pouring off. And now today she is thriving she is inspiring others and showing that change is possible healthy change even in the most dire of circumstances. Her story is coming up. But today we begin with dr barnard migraines and the foods that can help. Let's talk about headaches here on the exam room. Podcast brought to you by the physicians committee and not just any headache. We're about the mother of all headaches. Today we are going to be talking about migraine headaches. What exactly they are. And then how your diet may be affecting whether or not your head is pounding or not and so. We have a gentleman with us here today. Who knows all about this matter. Fact did a comprehensive study on this very topic not too terribly long ago and with that we welcome. Dr neil barr back to the exam room. Thank you so very much for being here sir. Hijacked great to be with you. Let's start with the surface level question. What is a migraine. And how does it compare to those day to day headaches that we all get great question. A migraine is not just a bad headache. untypical tension headache. That a lot of folks get is a dull ache lasts an hour or two. It's gone that's of beds. That's about it now. it can be intense. But the differentiates a migraine is that migraines are usually one-sided. They're often pounding and throbbing with your pulse. And along with it. You get lots of other things to. You're really sensitive to lights and sounds and sometimes you'll feel sick. You might even actually throw up. So it's it's a whole physical thing. as opposed to just Attention headache some people will get an aura beforehand. Not everybody but sometimes you'll see changes in your vision. That will warn you that the migraine is about to hit and we talk a lot about chronic illness here on the show. Is there any research showing whether or not migraines can be genetic at all they can be and they can also strike at any time of life. Unlike so many conditions where you've got to kind of be middle aged for to happen You'll see them in kids. And i have to tell you check. There is nothing sadder than a kid. Who's got a migraine because they last a long time. They can last overnight the next day kids aren't in school They're just waiting in the dark and what they're hoping for is that they will fall asleep. Sometimes the sleep will arrest the migraine and they can function again but there are kids who have them a few times a week and it can be just really debilitating. I remember dr bernard. At a young age there was a member of my family who suffered just tremendously with migraine headaches. And they actually had a shot that they would give themselves. They kept it in the refrigerator. I guess it was. It was a paint shot. I was pretty young at that time but they would literally have to go to their bedroom. Give themselves the shot and just lay down. And that was it for the day. They were just crippled It seemed and i'm assuming the shot because really no amount of tylenol is going to help these things. Well that's another problem with migraines is that you take an aspirin taken a tylenol. Only taking ibuprofen and a whole lot of nothing happens And often when people go to the emergency room with their headache the interns and residents that the ones who are kind of new to medical practice treat them with skepticism because they read a magazine somewhere that said that people will feign migraines in order to get narcotics so the poor headaches suffer is waiting into the Mercer waiting room getting no help at all being looked at with suspicion when they just want this summer in their head to stop and this is a fairly common condition it is it is very very common and for some people it occurs at certain times in their lives For women during the reproductive years they will sometimes occur premenstrual That's the bad news but the good news is that this gives us clues as to what we can do about it and so researchers have looked at. what are the triggers. It can't be the time of the month but it can also be what you ate and so once people start realizing that they started putting it to the test including our team and finding that some people can actually become totally free of their migrates. Let's talk about that diet component. Because that really does not get talked about all that often when it comes to migraine headaches you think about food. You think about bellyache. She'd think about some of the other conditions we talk about on the show but rarely do you associate that with the migraine nonetheless. You and a team of researchers. I believe it was in two thousand and fourteen looked at this specifically. What all did you discover. Yes that's exactly right on. The history of this really started with not exactly food that people making their meals but certain additions like ginger. Ginger seems to reduce migraines a little bit In other words if you have ginger in your food's it makes him less common. And then there's there's an herb called fever few. It's spelled just like it sounds. It's an old old old part of of kind of folk medicine. It was used to reduce fever. Fever few But researchers found that it does indeed help produce migrants. You don't take it when you've got the migraine. You take daily time and it makes migraines less likely to happen so that was all good but the the the power that really came came up is foods themselves and that's what we did. We brought in forty two people. They all had migraines. They'll have these pounding headaches And we asked half of them to do nothing for the time being. We gave them actually a placebo but the others were made a diet change and what we did was. We eliminated the problem foods. I'm gonna tell you what they are. And what we noticed is that the migraines dramatically reduced and i will never forget. We had a law student who is one of the research subjects and she was saying how she would be at in the law library and she'd be studying reading and then migraine with yet and that was it was if you could just unplug her brain and the day was shot after that you can do anything After began our study. She contacted me years later. And said you know what haven't had a migrants so The the key here is to know the foods to avoid and to avoid them. And there's a certain way that you can identify which foods really matter for you. And what is that way is it. Just kind of a matter of error is different for everyone or is there a really just kind of a specific group of foods that are i guess common triggers. You have to go through a kind of systematically because you wanna to see what your trigger food is and you might have more than one so what we did in this study and i would encourage other migraine sufferers to to do is four weeks during this four week period. No animal products at all when you do that. You're eliminating dairy which is at the top of just everybody's migraine list by the way it does not have to be fermented dairy. I it doesn't have to be an aged cheese. Even skim milk for some people will trigger their migrants so vegan diet has no dairy got no meat as no eggs. Those are common triggers if that knocks out your migraine your migrants. You're done. there's nothing else to do. But after four weeks if you still have some migraines then phase two is to eliminate a dozen additional foods that for some people are migraine triggers. Okay so here's my list of dozen And some.
