The Little Known Soy-Gluten Connection

Are you on a gluten-free, casein-free (GFCF) diet?  Are you eating lots of “healthy” processed and packaged gluten-free products that contain soy?

If so, your GFCF diet is probably not healing your body quickly . . . and maybe not at all.

The reason is, many people with gluten sensitivity also react to soy.   That’s a big problem given that soy ingredients are present in more than sixty percent of processed, packaged foods—including most of today’s popular gluten-free products. While such products are billed as “healthy” and priced really high, the truth is gluten isn’t the only devil troubling our guts and brains. While most people are aware of the casein link, the problem with soy is far less known though it has been identified as a risk in numerous medical journals including the Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology and Clinical Gastroenterology,

Don’t believe me?  Some of the doctors and other experts interviewed at The Gluten Summit this week are saying so too.  If you haven’t yet tuned in to this outstanding educational event, don’t miss your chance.  Click here for free replays of the most popular speakers, including my friends and colleagues Drs. Liz Lipski, Mark Houston, Natasha Campbell-McBride and others.   Don’t wait though as the event will be soon be over.

I first exposed the soy-gluten connection back in 2005 in my book The Whole Soy Story: The Dark Side of America’s Favorite Health,  and I think it’s high time this health-saving information reached the gluten-free community.  I’m therefore thrilled and honored that Jenny McGruther of Nourished Kitchen is publishing my guest blog on why people on GFCF diets should avoid soy as well as most of today’s processed packaged gluten free products and focus instead on healing their guts with a nourishing diet of real foods, whole foods and slow foods.
