I vaguely remember my last soy allergy outbreak, and that's a good thing. It's been a little over two years now since I found out about my food allergies and started this crusade to stay soy and dairy free, but for me it's more than just avoiding an allergic reaction; it's about being healthy. I've learned so much over these past few years about how the body works and how we abuse it with unhealthy diets, and that's been my driving force. I was never an unhealthy person, but I was shocked to find out how far from healthy I truly was.
We can all stand to improve our lives and you have to start somewhere, so why not put your diet on the hot seat.
If you (like most Americans) suffer from some sort of chronic pain disorder or illness, then I suggest starting with an allergy test. One simple test can check you for hundreds of possible food intolerances, and eliminating them from your diet has to be JOB 1. Now that you're not poisoning your body with allergens, it's time to rebuild that gut and ultimately your immune system. At the same time it's important to focus your diet around fresh organic whole foods, and limit your intake of processed foods.
You will be surprised, no amazed at how much healthier you will feel and will finally see for yourself the connection between an unhealthy diet and those chronic pains and illnesses that most have excepted as part of "growing older".
Remember this, if you eat shi... than expect to feel that way.
