Soy vs. Cherry

When we tried the cholesterol in soy oil, you could not keep it down. You went from throwing up once every few days to throwing up a few times every day. Nights were pretty miserable. I am fairly certain we checked for soy allergies a couple years ago but it came up negative. Maybe I am mistaken, or maybe an allergy has formed since then? Regardless, you could not tolerate it.

I thought that by switching you back to the cherry aqueous we would see an immediate and drastic improvement. I was right about immediate, but not so much about drastic. Things are better, sure. But we aren’t back to that sweet spot where we go days without incident. It takes your body much longer to adjust than the average person. Plus our trip to Dallas didn’t help—something is different in the air there that gave you a runny nose and a little cough. I am hopeful you will return to normal in the next week or so.

Hi Amber,

My daughter was having some digestion issues that my husband and I thought were food allergies. After taking her to an allergist and having her tested the doctor told us she had FPIES or Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome. Most symptoms are related to vomiting and diarrhea. Perhaps this is something you could look into with your daughter. Tests will be negative for food allergies so it is a rule out diagnosis. Dairy and Soy are common culprits for FPIES.

Here is a link to a website where you can find more information.
