Katherine Reid, PhD
Katherine Reid, PhD biochemistry, is the Executive Director and founder of Unblind My Mind (unblindmymind.org), a nonprofit that educates on the links between the foods we eat and the chronic illnesses we suffer. Katherine has over 20 years of experience in biotechnology and molecular diagnostics research, training that would find her ideally suited to tackle her most challenging scientific endeavor. In 2006, her youngest child was diagnosed with autism. Through her research, Katherine determined that certain ingredients and commercial food processing practices common in the Western diet were associated with her daughter’s autistic behaviors. Her knowledge has evolved into a treatment program to help others – REID (Reduced Excitatory Inflammatory Diet) that provides the missing links many are searching for in managing or restoring health through diet. Her approach has helped many recover their health, including her daughter who is no longer on the autism spectrum.
