Soy Foods Month on April, 2018: two year old with soy allergy?
April, 2018 is Soy Foods Month 2018.
i wouldn't give soy to my baby if i were you mate .. based not only on the information you've given us here but also on the information contained in the following two links ~
clearly your daughter is allergic to soy products ..... you don't "gain an immunity over time" with foods you are allergic or intolerant to .... you either are intolerant or allergic or you aren't ..... black and white... you can't "get over it" .... that's like being a little bit pregnant hey.... and there's no cure for it ........ the cure is to avoid the offending food or drink like the plague...... what happens is that the "symptoms" may appear to disappear for a while as your body learns to live with the continual ingestion of foods it perceives to be toxins ..... and all the while suffering in some way or another.... only for them to reappear with greater vengeance at a later date but with more far reaching ramifications... such as thyroid problems or psoriorasis or eczema in later years ... and that, after years of unexplained ill health for no "apparent" reason....... her whelps, vomiting, coughing, blisters have nearly gone and it's all thanks to her spectacular mommy working out that her daughter does in fact have a large problem assimilating soy products ... the allergy is clearing up mate because you have removed the cause of it .......... it's an allergy because it involves a major organ ... her skin ...... the whelps and blisters are a sign that her body is trying to get rid of the offending food the quickest way it can ...... through the skin ... hence the sores etc.... worry about it .... find an alternative ...... speak to a nutritionist or dietician or fully qualified naturopath about an alternative source of protein for your baby ...... i'm highly intolerant to soy and am also lactose intolerant and believe me ..... it hurts massively when i eat or drink anything containing either .... bloating, cramping, excessive gassiness, excessive belching, insomnia, achy bones, headaches and migraines, rashing, moodiness and irritability, total exhaustion can all ensue with food intolerances like soy intolerance ...... and it does hurt ..... and it wipes you out.... it messes with your immunity and neural functioning too so you end up with constant ear nose and throat infections, irregular bowel movements, constant uti's etc.etc. ad nauseum..... you've done well buddy...... ;0)
plain old green vegies and fresh fruits like oranges and apples are all spectacularly rich in calcium ....... and far easier to digest than all that soy .......... even carrotts, beets and celery, broccolli, kale, chard, buk choy are all rich in calcium ...... fresh fruit salads, fresh carrott or orange juice ..... not the packaged chemically processed juices you get from the supermarket that have loads of chemicals and processed sugar added ..... the real stuff that you squeeze freshly yourself ..... or green juices with a piece of fruit mixed through for sweetness ......... do her digestion and bounce a favor and give her more fresh fruit and green vegies for her calcium and lean sources of protein such as fresh fishes and fresh lean meats or mashed peas beans and lentils.
no point eating even the "healthiest sounding" food if your body can't assimilate it hey.
Weaning - to soy milk?
Soy? does she have an allergy to milk? most peds recommend going to vitamin D milk at 12 months.
speak with your daughter's peds doc if she does have any allergies that would require using soy milk, he'd/she'd know her case and will be able to give you accurate advice for your child.
What would be the best brand of dry dog food for my 4 month Lab/Golden?
There are so many dog foods on the market right now and most people are totally oblivious to healthy and unhealthy dog food. I used to be, but after looking into dog food and researching it I have completely changed my ways when it comes to dog food. All of the food in Wal Mart and most foods from other stores such as Petsmart are unhealthy garbage. Why? Because they either carry:
“Artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives,” all of these can cause cancer and several other health problems. Cancer is the #1 killer of cats and dogs.
“By-products,” they are the junk in meat that are not approved for humans to eat. Road kill, cancerous, dead, and dying animals are allowed as well.
“Fillers,” are corn, wheat, and soy products that virtually don’t have any nutrition in them. They pass right through. Which also makes your dog have to eat more food to feel full.
Surely good dog foods such as Science diet, Eukanuba, Iams, Pedigree, and Purina don’t have any of those and are great to feed my dogs right? Wrong. These foods have most if not all of these terrible things.
Here are the first ten ingredients of three of the so called best foods, which make up most of what your dogs eat and are the most important. The capitol words are the main things that are wrong in the ingredient lists.
Purina adult complete nutrition- WHOLE GRAIN CORN, POULTY BY-PRODUCT MEAL, ANIMAL FAT preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of Vitamin E), CORN GLUTEN MEAL, MEAT AND BONE MEAL, brewers rice, soybean meal, barley, whole grain wheat, animal digest… (There is nothing good in that list at all)
Eukanuba-Chicken, CHICKEN BY-PRODUCTS MEAL, CORN MEAL, GROUND WHOLE GRAIN SORGUM, Ground Whole Grain Barley, Fish Meal (source of fish oil), Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Brewers Rice, Natural Chicken Flavor, Dried Beet Pulp (sugar removed)… (Most of what you see are either fillers or by-products)
Science Diet- GROUND WHOLE GRAIN CORN, CHICKEN BY-PRODUCT MEAL, Soybean Meal, ANIMAL FAT (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Soybean Oil, Chicken Liver Flavor, Flaxseed, Iodized Salt, vitamins (L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of vitamin C), Vitamin E Supplement, … (first ingredient is a filler followed by by-products and more fillers)
Here is a list of both cat and dog well known foods and treats to stay away from-Fancy Feast, Alpo, Friskies,Mighty Dog, Dog Chow, Cat Chow, Puppy Chow, Kitten Chow, Beneful, Purina One, Purina ProPlan, DeliCat, HiPro, Kit’n’Kaboodle, Tender Vittles, Purina Veterinary Diets, MeowMix, Gravy Train, Kibbles ’n Bits, Wagwells, 9Lives, Cycle, Skippy, Nature’s Recipe, Milk Bone, Pup-Peroni, Snausages, Pounce, Pedigree, Waltham’s, Cesar, Sheba, Temptations, Goodlife Recipe, Sensible Choice, Excel, Hills Prescription Diets, Nature’s Best, Diamond, Ol’Roy, Iams, Nutro, Royal Canin.
Here are some foods that I recommend- Timberwolf organics, Innova, California Natural, Evo, Blue Buffalo, Taste of the wild, Wellness, Merrick Before grains, Chicken soup for the dog lovers soul, Health Wise, Karma, Orijen. Plus there are many more great foods not listed. You have to look at the ingredients list of any food that you feed your dog. If it have any of the things listed as bad then immediately put it down.
To show what a good healthy dog food looks like, here is the ingredient list of Taste of the Wild High Prairie- Bison, venison, lamb meal, chicken meal, egg product, sweet potatoes, peas, potatoes, canola oil, roasted bison, roasted venison, natural flavor, tomato pomace, ocean fish meal, choline chloride, dried chicory root, tomatoes, blueberries, raspberries, yucca schidigera extract, Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Saccharomyces cerevesiae fermentation solubles, dried Aspergillus oryzae fermentation extract, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin (vitamin B2), vitamin D supplement, folic acid.
