Long time I didn't post. Well, I am doing pretty well now
These products I found not to bother me at all:
1- Most Tree of Life Fruit Juices (the organic ones are better)
2- Terra Yukon Gold Salt and Pepper Potato Chips
The Onion and Garlic ones too.
3- Vans All Natural Wheat Free Waffles
4- Cascadian Farm Organic Fruit Spreads
5- Organic Raisin Bran Flakes by Health Valley
6- Musselman's Apple Juice
and a few more things but the list will be too large to post
Also, I just found a new doctor that really undertands MSG and my problems.
He also recommended more exercise to get my metabolism to normal, and I can say it really worked.
No more nasal allergies, no more high/low blood pressure and no more headaches, and best of all no more MSG symptoms.
Also, I take 30mg Zinc which helps me a lot.
And for those who suffer from Irritable Bowel syndrome, Aloe Vera is the perfect solution
It works for sinus too as it soothes irritated nasal passages.
I use the gel from the plant, not capsules, I have a few Aloe plants on the back yard.
So, get away from your computer and do some jogging or walking a few times a week!

Thanks for the tips, Frank. They are good ones, especially about the exercise. I feel so great when I walk regularly. How you you extract the gel, and how much and how often, (and how) do you take it?
Please let us know the brand of zinc you use. Others here have mentioned that it helps.

I cut the plant's lower leaves (these are the bigger ones) and remove the green cover leaving only the transparent part where the gel is, then wash it and cut it in small pieces.
Then I just put the pieces in the refrigerator to eat later or make juice with them. For juice you can use half gel, half water.
A little slimy at first, but you'll get accustomed to it. You can put in 1 tbsp of honey if you make juice with it. The small pieces you can eat'em just like that, I eat like 5 or 6 pieces a day (just for like 4 to 5 days, then I give it a few days rest), I chew them so they break and the gel will come out them swallow them, and drink just a little quantity of water after I finish.
About the Zinc, it helps for many things, even with the Flu and infections. It works on over 200 enzymatic reactions in the body.
I use Quality Choice Zinc 30mg tablets, 1 a day.
Zinc Gluconate, Dicalcium Phosphate, Powdered Cellulose, Croscarmellose Sodium, Magnesium Stearate.
If you feel your mouth a little dry a few hours after taking the Zinc, it is working That is the effect of the Zinc Gluconate. Just drink more water.
You can take the tablet alone or with food.

Frank: Please list your doctor's name and city under the category for that. I'd go half way across the U.S. if I could find a doctor who knew about excitotoxins!

Thanks for the quick reply, Frank! I hope I can find that brand of zinc here somewhere. Did you buy it at some large chain or some small store?
I've seen aloe vera beverages, but they contain corn syrup or other junk additives.
So glad you are doing so well with your health!

Well, I am in the Caribbean.
Sunny Puerto Rico to be more especific.
My recommendation is exercise, drink more water, avoid the things that cause your reactions or allergies, including excitotoxins and all kind of toxins, and when sick, try to use natural remedies if possible instead of drugs.
For example, I get rid of flu in just one day with Zinc, Natural Orange Juice and Chicken Soup with Vegetables It's been working for me for over a year.
Everything that we need is there in nature
We are so accustomed to the easy things that is why we got ourselves into this problem.
And toxins are everywhere, the problem is that excitotoxins are not our only problem, but all kind of toxins, including the ones on the water we drink, the air we breath, the ones they spray on our food, is like we are in this big poison chamber
So, get a water filter too.
These are the problems/symptoms I got rid off by changing all these things in my life:
1- Nasal Allergies
4- Acid Reflux/Heartburn
5- muscle pain
6- iregular blood preassure
7- irregular heart beats
9- get sick less often
10- feel stronger
and many more problems

Frank: Wow, the Caribbean. Well, you never know...I need a vacation anyway.

Just thought I'd mention two products I've found entirely safe:
Planter's Salted Peanuts in the Shell
Ingredients - peanuts and salt
purchased at Sam's Club
"Market Day" Premium Black Angus Ground Beef Chuck Patties with Vidalia Onions
Ingredients - Beef, Vidalia Onion, Salt

Thanks, Tom. I love to hear about safe foods that we can try. I recently bought some organic peanut butter at Trader Joe's (their brand name) and a jar at Whole Foods (their brand name). I just tried a little of the latter, and it is so good, I know I will gain some weight if I don't watch
out. (and of course if I don't react to it) I wish I could find Market Day chuck/Vidalia onion patties here. They sound so good. But I can make my own, I guess...still finding some safe and fast alternatives is such a rare pleasure these days!

Anna - Everyone is different but please be careful with Thumann's. I seem to recall past postings at NoMSG.com (that were since lost) about some trouble with their products --- despite their claims and pride in their family business. Does anyone remember this?
|Posted on Friday, October 05, 2001 - 6:12 pm: || |
One thing that bothers me is that their web site does not provide ingredient lists for their products. Also, it mentions use of "different natural flavors", possible sources of MSG.
|Posted on Friday, October 05, 2001 - 9:58 pm: || |
Thumanns uses sodium phosphates and lactates in their meats and cheeses! Beware. I get horrible reactions from these chemicals.
|Posted on Friday, October 05, 2001 - 10:16 pm: || |
Thumann's has hidden sources of MSG. Some health food stores (usually the smaller, local ones)have turkey or beef that they roast themselves. I am no longer able to find any, and now, I would probably react to it, I'm so much more sensitive to MSG than I used to be. Whole Foods doesn't carry a single prepared meat that doesn't have some source of hidden MSG in it, and they are so surprised to hear it if I tell them why I won't take a taste when I'm buying it for the rest of my family. My Whole Foods has Diestel brand turkey, which still has some bad stuff in it, just not as much as other brands.
