I have access to a far infrared sauna in my building, and have been using it regularly, especially after an MSG reaction.
My hope was to excrete the glutamate out of my system via sweat. Of course, use of a sauna has a host of other health benefits, so even if it doesn't quicken a recovery from MSG, it doesn't matter to me.
Since I'm not a twin, I can't do a double-blind study, so I don't know if it makes any difference, but just curious if anyone here uses a sauna for a similar purpose?

Sauna might help get rid of any excess aluminum, which interacts negatively to increase the reaction to glutamate.
The other thing I've read recently is that eating too much sugar can cause hypoglycemia and that can create a breakdown in tolerance to glutamate - which completely explains my son's post-reaction to sugar...sorry, off topic but just a random thought
