Hi all!

I know I've disappeared for a while - not because I've stopped caring, but with the big move coming up in a week among other things I've been incredibly busy. Additionally, I kinda just wanted to cruise through without what I can and can't eat being the focal point of my life. I've finally got this thing down - though I make mistakes here and there (most of them stupid), life has returned to normal - I just don't eat food additives anymore.

Anyway, big news... since I quit my horrible job, my insurance ends at the end of the month so I was rushing around getting some things done - most importantly hitting the eye doctor. I've been going to the same eye doctor for seven years - though I got a lecture for not going for nearly two years this time (oops!).

She does the initial digital eye test and says "I think there's something wrong with the machine - it says you have 20/20 vision." I explained that I had stopped eating things that aren't food and she was thoroughly impressed. The last time I was there I could only read the third line on the eye chart - barely - now I could read the bottom line without glasses. She was floored - as was I - but impressed. I have an astigmatism so I still have to wear lenses to keep the blurries away and to ward off motion sickness/light sensitivity but in only eight months, I reversed probably 12 years of slowly worsening vision.

There's no other explanation - the eye just doesn't correct itself. Isn't that awesome? My eye doc and I were both giddy, to say the least. MSG and other excitotoxins really do impact every area of your well-being. I had a feeling it would stop my vision from deteriorating - I had no idea that it could be reversed. I guess I just proved that it can. :-)

Wonderful, Courtney! I have been examined and my eye pressure was way too high. Explaining that I was suffering from an MSG induced headache, the doctor agreed to test the pressure after a week. He was shocked by the much lower!

My prescription hasn't changed in ten years and my pressures have stabilized. Ten years ago was when I started abstaining from MSG. Prior to that I thought I was doomed to go blind from Glaucoma like my mother did.

My eye pressure was also high before getting off the excito's. Now it is completely normal!!
