Hi. I’m Alanna, and I have been living with multiple food allergies (plus lots of other allergies) for over 17 years. In February 2014, I discovered a soy allergy which led to an incredible journey resulting in dramatic weight loss, incredible health, and energy that I did not know existed.
I found that eliminating soy required 60-80 hours of research and hard work each week for several weeks. As I began to throw out everything in my house including food, household products, and personal care products, I realized how much work there was involved in managing food allergies, not to mention the the devastating emotional effects of having to give up something that was a source of pleasure and social bonding.
I created the blog Soy Allergy Survivor after my diagnosis, and this is my mission:
I want to empower others to create their own path to transformation by helping them be educated about their allergies, create more time to enjoy life, reduce stress, and approach food allergy management with positivity.
