Both myself and my partner are allergic to Soy. We do not have life threatening allergies but we do go through an inordinate amount of discomfort, fatigue, pain and recovery.
I also have a relatively serious allergy to egg which rarely affects me.
Being that a serious allergy rarely affects me and my lesser, although still uncomfortable, allergy was being triggered all the time, it led me to question where the Soy was being hidden in my food. It is a known allergen, and as such, I have been very surprised at how far Soy comes into the manufacturing process, without the requirement to list it. I am now wary of a broad spectrum of ingredients as the main protein could be Soy.
I have also changed every single cosmetics item I have ever used. I wasn't really aware that they were affecting me, but after changing over, my skin has bounced back and glows instead of looking grey and pasty.
It has taken lot of research to start to become healthy again, I still ingest soy by accident rather too frequently and am constantly re-researching and re-researching information I just, quite, nearly forgot about.
This blog is to help me, and you, by putting everything in one place, with a search tool.
