I'm Giving Up Soy!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So, last week I had two pain free days!!! It was amazing to finally feel human! I stopped to think WHAT did I do differently??! All I could come up with is I didn't use my lip balm (Burts Bees) and a different eye pencil those days. My food had not changed. I stopped using both and I've had some good days. The balm has soy in it and some products I was eating (not often) included soy. I stopped all soy and my bloating is better everyday. The bloat got better after giving up corn, but not totally gone.

I'm kinda sad to see this go as well, but I am so happy to be free of pain! I have been in some type of pain everyday for 18 months, I feel like I have finally figured it all out!...for now ;)

Ladies that are soy free, any suggestions on replacing my lip balm and glosses. My new pretty pink lipgloss has vitamin E derived from soy. Thanks!

Check out Gluten Free Savonnerie's stuff. I got their shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, bar soap, lotion and lip balm. It's corn free, soy free, gluten free, dairy free.....among others. I will warn you that the lip balm is very bland and I don't quite care for the "taste" but I prefer it to being sick!

Welcome to the soy free club. Really, it's for the best. Soy is baaaaaad for you. :) And in my opinion way easier to cut out than corn. >rolls eyes<

By the way, mayonnaise is way easy to make with a blender (I couldn't find a mayo without soy in it) and I honestly can't think of anything else that I "miss" that has soy.

Yeah I soon realised my favourite lip balm from MAC has soy and traces of gluten in it and it was making me so ill! Within hours, I thought it was kinda a myth about make up and stuff but obviously not!

Yeah, if gluten is the root of all evil, soy is pretty hot on its heels!!!

Are you okay? This sounds like an allergic reaction. Have you taken any Benedryl or called the doctor??? Let us know what happens.

There is stock and stock cubes out there that are gluten and soy free. Pacific Brands is one brand. Or you can make your own and freeze it (you can make it strong and put it in the ice cube tray) :D
