Obviously diet is one of the most important, if not, the most important step in lowering glutamate. However, these may prove beneficial in helping those when experiencing a peak of symptoms related to high glutamate and neurological inflammation, i.e. following consumption of a high glutamate food, trauma or a “flare” from PANS (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder) or PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections). Additionally, working to lower inflammation/glutamate by treating underlying sources inflammation (metals, microbial imbalances, parasites, microglial activation, poor detoxification pathways, various toxins, etc.) will also be hugely beneficial. We’ve personally found homeopathy to be great for this. The following list is not comprehensive as it is simply all the I’ve had time to gather at the moment. Not all of these are REID approved. I do not have personal experience with all of them, nor would I recommend all of them (especially the pharmaceutical options).You will want to read the comments as some of the items used to temporarily lower glutamate, can actual work to increase glutamate/glutamate sensitivity over time.
