Battling the “MSG Myth”
Welcome to our Web Site
You have reached us because you or someone you care about is suffering from puzzling chronic conditions such as headaches, stomach disorders, fatigue, depression, and many other problems. Tests have come up negative and you want answers.
What you will find out at this time will most likely be the missing piece of the puzzle. What we discovered helped our family and thousands of others. Some skeptics will think, “It’s too simple an explanation”, but the truth is, most of us are suffering needlessly because of so-called “safe” food additives, namely excitatory neuro-transmitters (nicknamed excitotoxins). The main ones are monosodium glutamate (MSG), aspartame, and L-cysteine. You may think that you are actually avoiding MSG if you avoid Chinese restaurants, but this factory created flavor enhancer is in almost every bottled, bagged, frozen, or canned processed food on super market shelves. But since MSG is often a component of a formulation, it is not labeled as such. You’ve seen words like autolyzed yeast, hydrolyzed protein, and whey protein. Each of these substances contain a percentage of glutamate, the harmful component of MSG.
I didn’t correlate my headaches and diarrhea to the food I was eating for years. Most of us don’t because reactions to these excitatory substances can occur from ten minutes to 48 hours after ingestion. But when my 19 year old son began to develop debilitating headaches, my search for answers led me to the culprit: MSG. See if you suffer from any of these commonly reported symptoms and disorders.
Have you been tested for, suffer from, and found little relief from any of the following conditions?
1. Severe headache 12. Shortness of breath, chest pains, asthma 23. Slowed speech 2. Nausea, diarrhea, vomiting 13. Swelling, pain, or numbness of hands, feet, jaw 24. Chronic bronchitis-like symptoms, allergy reactions, dry cough, hoarseness or sore throat 3. Irregular heart beat or blood pressure, racing heart 14. Pain in joints or bones 25. Heavy, weak feeling in arms and legs 4. Depression or mood change, bipolar, SAD 15. Flushing or tingling in face, chest, pressure behind eyes 26. Irritable bowel or colitis 5. Abdominal pain, cramps, bloating, colitis, IBS 16. Gagging reflex or difficulty swallowing 27. Attention deficit disorder, anxiety attacks, rage, panic attacks 6. Balance problems, dizziness, or seizures, mini-strokes 17. Hyperactivity, behavioral problems 28. Neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, MS, Parkinson’s 7. Tenderness in localized areas, neck, back, etc. 18. Chronic post nasal drip 29. Pressure behind eyes or on head, neck, shoulders 8. Sleep disorders 19. Skin rash, itching, hives 30. ADD, ADHD, Rage Disorder 9. Blurred vision or difficulty breathing 20. Bloated face, dark circles under strained eyes 31. Asthma 10. Chronic fatigue or sleepiness 21. Extreme thirst or dry mouth 32. Weight problems, obesity, hypoglycemia 11. Excessive perspiring or shuddering and chills 22. Difficulty concentrating and poor memory
If any of these conditions plague you, you may be a victim of the myth that monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a safe food additive. The truth is that the average person eats much more glutamate than what is considered to be a safe and normal amount in the typical American diet. MSG is in everything from crackers and soda pop to vitamins and toothpaste.
