Mitochondrial Dysfunction & Low Muscle Tone

This is not a comprehensive list, simply some articles I have found along the way. “Mitochondrial Dysfunction is a Primary Event in Glutamate Neurotoxcity” http://www.jneurosci.org/content/16/19/6125.full.pdf “Glutamate becomes an excitotoxin when it is in excess; meaning it overstimulates brain cells and nerves and results in neurological inflammation and cell death” (http://www.holistichelp.net/blog/how-to-increase-gaba-and-balance-glutamate/) “These results suggest that glutamate targets the mitochondria and selenium supplementation within physiological concentration is capable of preventing the detrimental effects of glutamate on the mitochondria” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3378533/42 “Two biomarkers of this glutatmate excitotoxicity are mitochondrial dysfunction involving 1) viral exposures which damages the mitochondrial membrane resulting in formation of [...]

Lowering Glutamate | Selenium

Selenium- One brazil nut per day should give you the daily recommended amount of selenium needed. “These results suggest that glutamate targets the mitochondria and selenium supplementation within physiological concentration is capable of preventing the detrimental effects of glutamate on the mitochondria” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3378533/42 Why Is This Important? Glutamate is also the most abundant neurotransmitter, responsible for regulating over 50% of the nervous system. It is classified as an excitatory neurotransmitter, which means it excites or stimulates nerve cells located throughout the nervous system. Glutamate also has the ability to regulate other neurotransmitters, [...]

A Story of Hope with REID: “The Foundation for Permanent Health”

We occasionally get letters or comments from parents that have seen improvements in health with REID. To help provide hope to so many still in the trenches, I’ve decided to make more of an effort to share some these comments (with their permission, of course). Many of us don’t have it all figured out, but we cling to the hope and words of progress. Everyone’s journey is different, diet changes may not reap huge changes for all, but it is absolutely helping some. Like this family, glutamate and the REID diet have been a huge piece to [...]
