Welcome to our community! I'm so glad you found us.
If you haven't yet, it would be helpful for you to start with reading through the thread at the top of the forum titled,"New to Lyme?...Start here!!", as it is packed full of important information, symptom lists, helpful links and pdf's, how to detox when one has these infections, information on probiotics and much more. And this is another good list of possible detoxing routines: www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html
Detoxing for us is an incredibly important part of our healing.
I have an allergy to soy, even soy oil and soy lecithin, so I can understand and sympathize with what you are going through!! I have to make all my own mayo, salad dressings, seasonings and more. Plus, eating when away from home brings on new challenges as well!!
