I started adding soy protein drinks and soy protein bars as a snack when I read ads that said “Soy Serves Up Healthy Benefits.”
For eight years I complained to doctors that I was always nauseous, bloated and having unusual weight gain.
One night I ate a soy veggie burger and in the morning I was rushed to the emergency room because I thought I was having a heart attack! I went into anaphylactic shock.
Doctors diagnosed food poisoning after four days in the intensive care unit. I didn’t agree and knew something was wrong.
I had no appetite when I came home, and after two weeks I was feeling better, so I had a soy protein drink and within ten minutes started having shortness of breath, palpitations, and anxiety. I looked up soy allergy on the Internet and I had almost every symptom!
That is when I removed all soy products from my diet I lost 32 pounds and have never gained it back.
The problem with a soy allergy is that it’s very challenging going to the grocery store because over 60% of the food on the shelves have some form of soy. You have to know what to look for because it’s hidden in so many ingredients.
If you are experiencing the same symptoms as I did, or just not feeling like yourself, you may have a soy allergy or soy intolerance.
Please feel free to share your experiences and successes with your soy allergy. We can all learn much more on how to prevent years of suffering from each other in the comments below!
