Welcome to Nourished Blessings! This blog was created to share our journey of restoring health with natural remedies and following a low glutamate/reduced excitatory inflammatory diet (REID). I am not an expert, professional chef, or homeopath, but just a mom working as hard as possible to give my child the gift of health and the opportunity to be the best he can be. I claim to have only some of the answers. Instead, I want to create a central location for some of the information we’ve learned along the way and help others with similar struggles.
I want to acknowledge those working to bring awareness to the dangers of glutamate and credit Dr. Katherine Reid, Ph.D. Biochemist., Truth In Labeling, and Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D., for sharing their abundant knowledge on the role of excess glutamate in various health issues. I strongly encourage you to explore some of their research. Because of these leaders, I have been compelled to share our story and empowered to help crusade against the dangers of excess glutamate. We will be forever grateful for them.
Underlying immune dysfunction, microbial imbalances, and inflammation were significant factors contributing to our excess levels of glutamate. In discovering this, we used herbals and homeopathy to help combat this imbalance. I hope this blog provides more input on realistically implementing this lifestyle change and share more of our personal journey, discoveries, and healing options. You can read more about our story here. Thank you for visiting.
