A San Francisco mom says she reversed her daughter's autism by simply changing her diet. Katherine Reid, a biochemist, removed the chemical monosodium glutamate (MSG) from her daughter's diet and says all symptoms of autism simply disappeared.
When daughter Brooke was diagnosed with autism at the age of two, Reid began hunting for help, according to an article in the SFGate. She tried different approaches, including diets that eliminated gluten and dairy, but none helped very much. Then she read that too much glutamate interferes with learning, and came to the belief that MSG in the diet makes glutamate imbalances even worse. Until that point, Reid never realized MSG was so prevalent in American diets.

MSG, which is often associated with Chinese food, is in almost all processed food, although it only appears as an ingredient about 1 percent of the time. Instead, it hides in ingredients labeled as flavor, corn starch, soy protein, and many others. "We're getting an abundance of MSG," she told SFGate. "It's in 95 percent of processed food. And we don't need it in our diet — ever."
After eliminating MSG from Brooke's diet, she began to quickly improve, and now, at the age of seven, Reid says she is completely cured.
