I have had many clients that are gluten intolerant and also discover that they are also sensitive to soy.
Symptoms of a soy allergy or intolerance may be limited to one area of the body or may involve many areas. They can include flushing and/or itching skin, swelling lips and/or tongue, wheezing, shortness of breath, hoarseness or tightness in the throat, nausea and vomiting, colic, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
Although only a few foods are made primarily with soy, it’s used as an ingredient in many processed foods and in most fast-food options. People avoiding both gluten and soy have unique eating challenges, especially for gluten-free vegetarians, vegans and people who avoid dairy. A nutritional evaluation will help determine if you are sensitive to soy. Please contact Gini Warner to make an appointment.
