    One of the main symptoms of aspartame disease is MCS. If I had done follow up research two and a half years ago I'd be in a lot better shape now. Wake, you are probably like me in that you can't eat ANYTHING with MSG either. It attacks your brain the same way aspartame does. I'm following Dr. Blaylocks advice on vitamins and supplements. I feel so much better now.

    All the B vitamins, turmeric,Alpha lipoic acid,fish oil, Co Q-10, Vitamin C in the form of lots of OJ (NOT FROM CONCENTRATE) magnesium (which I believe helps the most), milk thistle w/dandelion. I started selenium yesterday. I thought I had a reaction to it. Maybe what I felt was a jolt that my body needed. My red eyes seemed to have cleared up some. I also take grapeseed, calcium, garlic, cayenne, a probiotic and drink a green drink and one with acai (spelling). I also take mucinex and benadryl, but not every day. I eat lots of broccoli, tomatoes, brussel sprouts and medium to dark green salads. I also use more olive oil now. This seems to be doing me a lot of good. I now have ENERGY and can tolerate small whiffs of fragrance. A year ago I couldn't. And, oh yeah, I try to get sunshine every day.

    for liver phase1 and phase 2 detox in regard to glutathione

    What you eat and how well you take care of yourself CAN affect how well your liver works. Therefore it’s important that you choose foods that will help maintain and support your liver. Good nutrition can also help to rebuild some damaged liver cells and help the liver form new cells.

    As we mentioned before, the liver has two detoxification pathways called Phase One and Phase Two. The work of each of these phases requires specific vitamins and minerals. These vitamins and minerals in turn need other nutrients called phytochemicals and amino acids to help them. The liver has a big job to do and as you will see, it requires a team effort.

    During Phase One, which changes a toxic chemical to one that is less harmful, free radicals are formed. Free radicals are unstable particles that react with the body and damage the body’s cells. If too many free radicals are made, they can hurt the liver cells. In order to get rid of or reduce these free radicals, our bodies need foods with a lot of antioxidants and phytochemicals. The antioxidants beta carotene, vitamins C and E, and selenium and many different phytochemicals are found in fruits, vegetables and whole grains. One of the most important antioxidants is an amino acid called glutathione. Glutathione is made by the body and is also found in some foods. The B vitamins including folic acid are also very important in this Phase One process.

    During Phase Two the liver adds a substance to the now less harmful chemical to make it water soluble. It can then be moved out of the body in urine or feces. During this Phase Two process, foods rich in sulphur compounds are needed. Some of the foods with a lot of sulphur compounds are (you knowthe kind, they smell when you cook them) cabbage, brussel sprouts, and broccoli.

    Following are some more foods that have the nutrients needed to help Phase One and Phase Two work as well as they can:

    Foods to Help Phase One Detoxification

    Beets contain antioxidants such as beta-carotene, other carotenoids and healing flavonoids. Antioxidants help to limit the damage caused by free radicals, thus they have a healing and cleansing effect on the liver; beets also have folic acid which is necessary for Phase One detoxification.

    Broccoli contains B vitamins and vitamin C both of which help Phase One detoxification; it also is a source of folic acid.

    Brown Rice provides B vitamins and the antioxidant selenium.

    Carrots contain beta-carotene and other carotenoids that help to protect the liver.

    Eggs supply B vitamins.

    Garlic has selenium and glutathione, both of which act as antioxidants.

    Spinach provides folic acid and other B vitamins.

    Tomatoes have vitamins C and E which are both needed for Phase One detoxification. They are also a good source of the antioxidant lycopene.

    Wheatgerm contains selenium and vitamin E and is an excellent source of phytochemicals.

    Melons and peppers are good sources of vitamin C.

    Tomatillos, papaya, plantains, carambola and guava are good sources of the antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin C.

    Foods to Help Phase Two Detoxification

    Broccoli contains natural sulfur compounds which are needed to enhance Phase Two detoxification.

    Cabbage like broccoli, contains natural sulfur compounds.

    Eggs contain methionine, a sulfur-containing compound needed for detoxification.

    Brazil Nuts contain selenium, an antioxidant needed for detoxification.

    Garlic has methionine which is needed for detoxification; also contains glutathione, a powerful antioxidant.

    Onions have sulfur compounds which are important in both detoxification pathways; also a source of glutathione.

    Asparagus and Watermelon are rich, natural sources of glutathione which is important for liver detoxification.

    Papaya and Avocado help the body to produce glutathione.

    Mushrooms have a lot of glutamic acid which is needed to produce glutathione and help with liver detoxification.
