Thank you for the information. I do believe there is a lot of evidence out there re food allergies and special diets. There are lots of different opinions on the topic.
I hope you find what works for you.

I can reccomend one thing (my opinion only) that you stay well away from flavour enhancer 621. It is MSG and will raise your heart rate. It simulates a panic attack for me every time I have it. This is just my experience, but I would look carefully at ingredients.
All the best.
Great advice Meg and now Kitt is signing off as I have been on here since 0730 this morning except for a brief nap. Oh my it is 0130...........I am off to lala land. Love ya all.
Good night my friends, good night moon.
Really the only Foods/Beverages I don't tolerate well are Chocolate and Caffeine.I can't drink 1/2 Glass of Caffeinated Iced Tea without feeling like I'm gonna crawl through my own Skin.Tea most definitely affects me more than Caffeinated Coffee.Chocolate makes me Anxious and I crave the decadent,oooey,gooey yummy stuff when I'm PMS'ing.I've read/heard Chocolate craving is a sign of Magnesium deficiency..I so want a Juicer..if I may what brand do you have?
MSG is a common ingredient in Chinese Food right?I once read it causes Headache.
Yes, monosodium glutamate (MSG) was first introduced to us through chinese food, but now it is a common ingredient in "tasty" foods. Most potato chips, chicken salt and stock contains MSG. It contains an ingredient that stimulates your appetite, it doesn't tell you to "stop" when you are full. That is why it can be easy to get through that family sized packet of chips! Or do you guys call them crisps? I forget?!
