The Question: MSG and Gluten #glutenfree #msg #health #weightloss #bloating #mayoclinic

The Answer: “What makes your body bloat? Alex!”

The Mayo Clinic concluded that monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer commonly added to Chinese food, canned vegetables, soups and processed meats. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified MSG as a food ingredient that’s “generally recognized as safe,” the use of MSG remains controversial. For this reason, when MSG is added to food, the FDA requires that it be listed on the label. MSG has been used as a food additive for decades. Over the years, the FDA has received many anecdotal reports of adverse reactions to foods containing MSG. These reactions — known as MSG symptom complex — include:
• Headache
• Flushing
• Sweating
• Facial pressure or tightness
• Numbness, tingling or burning in the face, neck and other areas
• Rapid, fluttering heartbeats (heart palpitations)
• Chest pain
• Nausea
• Weakness

And I’ll add to that—BLOATING.

Yesterday, someone sent a lovely gift of a dinner for four to my mom to help during her recovery from a hospital stay. Yesterday we ate the meal of pork tenderloin, roasted rosemary potatoes and green beans. Both of us were sick almost all night. We are both allergic to MSG. As of now, I’m certain that the meat was tenderized with MSG.

After dinner, she was sick in the bathroom all night. And my stomach looked as if I were pregnant. I was agitated and felt as if I had had a pot of coffee. Even ambien would not put me to sleep, which as you probably know usually renders people stupid and sound asleep.

The fact that I had been poisoned by MSG didn’t occur to me until I tried every hypnosis technique available to man, sat in my massage chair for an hour, and still I felt like running around the block. At five in the morning, I got up, ate breakfast, took something to relax my body, and fell asleep for two hours. The toxic effect is now gone. Mom is still suffering.

If you have been eating food that has MSG in it, you really should stop. Check packaging. My mother had no idea her stomach problems were a result of MSG until I looked at every item of groceries she bought and weeded out the culprits. Try it. It works. You’ll feel 100% better.

Margarine and Hydrogenated Peanut Butter

Margarine and Hydrogenated Peanut Butter

It has been a long time since I wrote about the harm in certain foods. When companies take an oil and add an atom to the oil to make it a solid and pass it off as food, it is called hydrogenation. This is not good for your body. If your peanut butter does not have the word “natural” on the label and you are still using margarine instead of butter because it’s cheaper or you think it’s better for you, please switch to butter and natural nut butters. Your heart will thank me later. And so will your taste buds.

Refined sugar is another place where we tend to just look the other way. I read a while back that if refined white sugar were to have to pass through the stringent testing food has to go through to get on the market these days, it would never pass. It is basically poisonous to the body. There are no good qualities to white sugar.

There are, however, some really good substitutes that are great for you. I use Agave Nectar. One really good attribute about agave is that it’s a fruit sugar, which processes in the body completely different than other sugars. It processes slower. If you are diabetic or sensitive to sugar, Agave is a good substitute. I have exchanged agave for all my sugar intake, and I couldn’t be happier with the taste.

MSG… look for it on the ingredients list of all the things you buy that are pre-made.  It is a silent killer and most us are allergic to it. Monosodium Glutamate was create to make meat more tender, but has been used to flavor many foods and also used as a preservative. MSG can cause anything from gastro intestinal disorder to mimic symptoms of diseases with muscular disorders. People also tell me that it can keep them wide awake at night if they are allergic to it.

In any case, stay clear of it, especially for your children’s sake.

I’d love to hear stories today of how any of the above foods effected your body.

These are just a few things you can be looking for this week. I hope you have a pleasant and blessed week. Namaste.
