Chemist claims she reversed daughter’s autism symptoms

ReidKatherine Reid is a very interesting doctor and several articles are popping up regarding her daughter’s cured Autism.  Ash was moved enough that he wants us to consider trying a MSG free diet. We are already on the verge of going Gluten free.  I never expect a cure or instant fix by any means but I am also of the idea why not try and just see how it affects you or your little one?  Autism aside many of these things are simply good for your health so again, why not?  Personally I have a lot more research to do first but my curiosity is definitely peaked!
