I'm a firm believer in coconut oil for...pretty much everything. Can you tolerate coconut?

^ Check out #42. Coconut oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties, and you get so many uses out of it. It costs about $10.00 a jar, but you can find it anywhere (Stop & Shop, etc) and there are so many uses for it. You can use it as a moisturizer, hand lotion, etc etc. No need to worry about gluten, soy, or any other allergens. One jar will last for a LONG time. I swear it's helped me with acne too.

Yep, coconut oil is good. If you have any warehouse club memberships, Sam's and Costco both carry it in a large container.

Besides coconut oil, I love Tea Tree Oil which has both anti-fungal and antibiotic properties.  Even covering with petroleum jelly would help heal a cut.  But I would go with the coconut oil.  Safe to eat, so it's safe on your skin.

Aquaphor Ointement is my go for salve.  Recommended by my Doctors over Neosporin for healing the skin.  It works!

No, there is soy in it, I have a bad reaction to it with in the hour, if not a few minutes. Advil, look at there ingredients. Soy is not listed in anywhere, but if you call they will let you know its in every pill they make. I notice drug companies dont have to label any form of the 8 main allergies in the products. Its forced on food manufactures, Im not sure why drug companies dont have to show if there is gluten or soy or corn in there products. I was getting panic attacks after taking chewable Bayer asprin, put me in the hospital. I told the manufacture and all they felt the need for is to send me all there coupons. Funny thing is, it all contains soy.

Most of all medicines have some form of soy in it, I'm finding out. I have to have my ibuprofen made in a compounding shop and pay about 1$ a pill because I cant find one commercially made ibuprofen without soy in it. All my pain meds have soy. My antibiotics has soy, It was helping me heal and making me sick in the process. I'm a mess right now, what should have taken a few days on the meds, took three weeks to heal, in the process killed of the good bacteria in my gut, I'm trying to use Pro-biotic, but all the pills have soy, so getting it from cultured yogurt has been fun, but the lactose makes me sick, and looking to eat fermented products, looks like I will have to make all that by scratch because every frekin manufacture uses soy.

 

any ideas?

Best thing ever happen to me is when I went through being Gluten free, most of my crappy symptoms went away, when I stopped soy , then the rest went away. this site rocks. Not all of you have what I have, I wish there was a site for people like me, but this is about as close as I can get. I pop in here when Im at my last straw and you guys are a great help, I will sure use the coconut oil. :D

Because something like Neosporin is unlikely to contain lactose or gluten , maybe the soy free bloggers/sites might have good suggestions.

Well called Neopsorin, that was an interesting call, the wax they use, they would not tell me if it contained anything let alone soy. they  could not tell what ingredients the wax was made from due to giving out the secrets, yea who needs to care if there is something in there that could be allergic to..(Natural Flavor) crap. It like pulling teeth with these guys. He said the wax was the only thing that was made from natural stuff, (you know like Soy or corn or other stuff, thinking in my mind), but could not tell what it was made from. uggg

I can't have soy or lactose either, so I understand your pain. Advil doesn't seem to bother me, but it is so rare that I need to take it now. I hardly get headaches anymore (I think it's because of my strict diet) and when I do take it I try to just take 2 and not take it multiple times a day. Are you taking Advil frequently?

Perhaps you need to look at other possibilities. Wax from soy would be more expensive. They don't add things that cost more when they don't have to. It's not good business practice. As others have said there are many here with soy issues (including anaphylactic reactions to it) and there hasn't been an issue. Perhaps it's something else.

I talked directly with the manufacture on Advil, they said all the pills they manufacture has a form of soy in them. I was narrowing the things that bother me. Soy out of my life has made me feel so normal again. but anything with a little trace of any form of soy hits me like a brick

Gluten makes my gut hurt, ever since I pulled that out of my system, I no longer have painfull bowl pain before I got to go. That one thing I had most of my life. thought it was one of my intestines out of wack. After pulling gluten out, Lactose now makes me sick unless its been cooked. Cant drink it strait, makes me sick. Soy puts me in a bad place, strips something out of my cells because I dont have an allergic reaction that Im aware of, my entire body looses the ability to function correctly. Fog,sort term memory loss and feeling lost. just want to crawl into a hole and die.

Have you had any medical tests or clinical diagnosis?
