I was looking into something natural I can eat during my cleanse that doesn’t need salt, pepper, or oil and was considering sweet potatoes until I found out that they’re estrogen producing! Not only that, some women use it for breast enlargement and used as estrogen hormone therapy for menopausal women. Although it’s high in many nutrients, fills you up, and does not need seasoning, for women with endometriosis, fibroids, or other estrogen producing problems, please stay away from sweet potatoes/yams.
There are two kinds of yams and one is estrogen producing and the other one is not. However, from going to many supermarkets, I cannot find the one that’s non estrogen producing. I can only find the sweet potatoes that are estrogen producing. When asking the grocers whether they are “true yams” (no not produce estrogen) or “wild yams” (produce estrogen) they don’t know either. Completely frustrating so I just decided to stay away. Did you know that birth controll pills are also derived from yams? Pretty scary. To be safe, whether wild or true yam, I’m staying away. It’s one food I do not want to bet on and can live without.
