When I was 41 years years old, I began to have migraines so severe they put me in the hospital. I had never in my life had pain like this and so it is was VERY scary!
I made the connection between the headaches and MSG because of a box of add water and stir pancakes that I bought from the store. It was then that I began to research food chemical sensitivity.

After some experimenting, I found that most pre-made foods are to be avoided. The only exceptions have been Quik Trip sandwiches and Chinese food only from restaurants whose reputation depend on being MSG free.
Most of the time, however, I buy my cuts of meat whole and butcher them myself, and buy whole fresh vegetables - I do ALOT of home cooking. This is probably healthier on many levels, but certainly reduces the chemical intake dramatically.
Headaches now happen very seldom and it is more wonderful than I can convey with words!
