Soy?

15 posts in this topic

Well, its currently 3 am where i'm at and i can't sleep at all. I feel like, in whatever position i lay, i'm goin to fall, my limbs feel fatigued, as do my eyes. My allergies are going as well, so thats not helping any.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why.

The night before last i had to stay up and only get like 2 hours of sleep due to homework -_- but last night i got about 9 and then earlier today i got a small 2 hour nap in.

The only thing different that i have done was take the maximum of my cranberry pills, and the only main problemish thing with them is that they contain soy. OH... and i've still got "C". -_-

I'm so bloody tired that i can't sleep, i've somehow rubbed my tounge on the side of my retainer and its sorta sore (happens every so often).

I also sleep with a wedge pillow to keep my GERD from acting up at night.

Here is what i ate:

rice chex (and two cranberry pills)

peanut butter and honey on corn tortilla (haven't had in a while but sounded good along with two more pills)

chicken, carrot, and rice soup (and the final two pills).

I followed the instructions to a "T" with them, so yeah i don't know.

I'm really tired atm, so i appologize for any errors.

Soy does me in. Insomnia is one of my glutening symptoms and soy does the same thing to me. I avoid it like the plague.

Ugh this sucks. I'm bloated, my stomach is trying to kill me, my wonderful monthly gift decided to show up again, my tounge is irritated, and i'm in the middle of a philosophy class. Two hours of sleep is not fun.

Im thinking it was the pills. I do fine with pb and honey along with my corn tortillas. Same with chex and soup.

I hooe it isnt the cranberry part though.

Another idea is that maybe it was cc'd? Its labled gluten free, dye free, dairy freee etc.

I reeeeeallly hope it isn't soy thats doing this though. I mean come on :( its in my bisquick and my alfredo (i'm going to learn how to make it homemade for GP though).

Pretty sure it wasn't dairy as i haven't had any dairy in nearly a week.

How about the peanut butter? Does it have soy? most of them do unless you go for the organic or natural versions.

Ooh, soy...

Have you had trouble with soy before? Can you eat soy-based things like tofu and soy-sauce and such? Or have those been cut out for a while?

I stopped eating soy around the beginning of the year when I noticed (after cutting out casein a few months before) it made my head all floaty, aggravating my "vertigo" symptoms that had gotten better when I stopped eating dairy. Now, no soy for me and I didn't feel dizzy all the time this summer! Yay! But it sucks. I miss tofu, and it's harder to avoid even than gluten or dairy.

Maybe you should try cutting it out for a while and see if it helps. If it's only in your supplements and such, then it might be something else, but we do get more sensitive to things if we haven't been eating them for a while. So best to cut it out and see.

I hope you feel better soon! You've been having a rough time lately.

That's good. lately I've been getting peanut butter at a health food store. They have a grinder so you just flip the switch and fill up a container. Nothing but ground peanuts in it.

I can't eat carrots. We can develop intolerances to any food, so it is good to look at everything and consider eliminating the possible culprits.

I really haven't. Thats what got me thinking that it might be it.

Yeah, soy is sneaky. It's like, one day you're fine with it and the next day you're not. I was doing fine with soy until suddenly tofu would kill me. Now even small amounts, like soy lectin and such, can bother me (seems to be ok in small amounts if I take a digestive enzyme with it, but I don't buy anything with soy in it any more.)

It's worth a try.

When I was first not aware of my soy allergy, the cranberry pills made me sick. Most cranberry pills contain soy. Avoid them if they don't say soy free. Also, Rice Chex may be gluten free, but their not soy free. Rice Chex have vitamins which most certainly contain soy. Honey, unless it is locally sources is from China... soy again. Your peanut butter is a legume which you should also be avoiding, but some peanut butters contain soy also (hydrogenated vegetable oils). Hope this helps, but basically you ate soy all day that's why you're sick.

Eh, i don't think i have a problem with it then. I eat chex all the time with no issues, the same with peanut butter and honey. I think at the time the cran berry pills were to cause.

I hope you're right! Soy is one of the worst things to avoid. I do ok-ish if I have small amounts, but damn, I miss tofu and real soy sauce, and all that. I might challenge it soon as see what happens, but I don't have high hopes.

Also, cranberry is a diuretic, right? Maybe there are dangers to having too much? Are you taking them as a digestive aid? Maybe find an alternative?

Hope you're feeling better soon!

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
