Dr. Katherine Reid claimed she removed MSG from her daughter Brooke's diet (even found in toothpaste), and says the autism symptoms have been "completely removed." Three years after removing MSG Brooke has been taken out of her special needs school and gets on very well in mainstream education.
Dr. Reid says she has so far worked with 75 children and 74 of them saw dramatic improvements within 5 weeks so they they carried on with the diet.
Her journey to discover the impact of MSG began by adding nutritional supplements such as Omega 3, magnesium, Vitamin D3, and B-Complex vitamins. Dr. Reid said “I observed eye contact coming back, and minor improvements, but still autistic, still special needs, not functioning very well in the mainstream environment,”
Next was to remove gluten and casein which made some improvements again. this finally lead to the removal of MSG and amazingly Brooke’s seizures, sensory distortions and extreme sensitivity to light and sound, were completely gone.
Dr Reid said: “I was shocked. It’s all over the place in our foods, and it’s not being labeled as monosodium glutamate, it’s being labeled as almost healthy things, as natural flavors, for instance. So you can have a food labeled 100% organic, all natural, no MSG added and still, that food item contain a significant amount of MSG,”
