Soy Intolerance
0

57 posts in this topic

I *think* I may be soy intolerant. My most obvious symptom is a depression that comes out of absolutely nowhere. I get ANGRY or I despair for no reason. I want to hurt myself or inanimate objects.

I used to feel like this every night--go to bed depressed, then wake up fine in the morning. After going gluten-free, that stopped, except for three major times. those three times I could trace it back to soy oil, soy lecithin, and cross-contamination from a facility that also uses soy.

The soy oil by far gave me the worse reaction. Immediate stomachache, smelly, painful gas, reflux, headache/depression/fatigue that lasted several days. The soy lecithin and soy CC only gave me neurological symptoms of depression, headache, and fatigue, although it's possible I can blame some gas on it too. And possibly acid reflux.

How can you know if its the gluten or /and the soy? Most of the time they are both in a product. I am suspecting soy also. What product can I try thats just one or the other?

I react to soy much the same as to gluten. And in fact, soy can destroy the villi as well.

You might try some tofu, or some edamame beans.

I recently confirmed my intolerance to soy. My heart rate slowed, fatigue, shortness of breath, headaches, dizziness. Its been 8 days since I ingested soy. It is pretty dibilitating. I have to eat a small snack or meal every couple of hours to supplement my energy. I am also loading up on b-vits, c-vit, & calcium to replenish what I can what my body isn't absorbing. I am slowly losing my patients with myself over my recovery time. Life was good and active then it came to a halt with this soy reaction. no work & no school.

Anyone have similar experiences? Tips? Or how long it took you to recover?

A reaction can last days, weeks, or longer, depending on how much you consumed, and your state of health in general.

It's pretty miserable, but seems to just need to run it's course?

You might try adding coconut oil to your diet? It feeds your brain just like glucose and has anti-inflamatory/healing properties. A dose of at least 2-3T per day has helped me. I add it to my morning coffee, use it like I would butter on cooked veggies, and use it to cook with. I really like the organic extra virgin Nutivia brand, which I buy online.

Look it up. You might be surprised how beneficial it is in your diet.

Some people find that taking a long soaking bath in epsom salts helps pull toxins from the body too.

Good luck. I hope this passes soon for you.

Does anyone else find that they react to soy flour much worse than tofu etc? Soy flour (in biscuits/cakes etc) has a really quick reaction with me - I get some similar reactions to my coeliac ones - bloating/gas etc, but I think things like tofu/gluten-free tamari are OK...

I've seen that soy has a high risk of cross contamination in the fields as it is grown in rotation with wheat. If you're bothered by soy flour, maybe that could be the problem? I wish I had those at home test strips...

For those of you that are also reactive to soy, what do your reactions look like?

I'm starting to suspect that I'm reacting even stronger to soy than I am to gluten, and DANG does soy hide in a lot of places!

Does anyone have a soy-free chocolate recommendation? I can handle giving up wheat pasta, but CHOCOLATE?? <_<

For me soy brings almost immediate gastro reactions. MISERY! Mostly very unpleasant gas and stomach cramping. I am more reactive to soy than gluten. Its really difficult to find gluten-free goodies that don't contain soy. I mainly stick to whole, natural foods that I prepare myself. For gluten-free foods my favorite is udi's. Great breads, cookies, and other goodies.
