Ask Dr. Hull a question

Q: I’d like to ask Dr. Hull about the aspartame withdrawal detox questions below. 

I had a hair analysis done with Dr. Hull, and am doing her 10-Step Detox Program now, and am watching her videos over and over again to keep me positive. It’s working, but I do have some concerns about strange things happening to me right now.

In the videos, Dr. Hull says that my health symptoms can get worse when they leave the body, and that’s a good sign. I’m on Day 6 of her detox, but my head is “fussy” and I’m not sleeping well. 

I would like to find out how long the withdrawal takes when you stop using aspartame?

From Dr. Hull

A: Thank you for following my program, and hang in there, because it has worked for so many people. 

Any detox is dependent on how much aspartame is used and for how long, combined with other toxins that may be present, such as aluminum or lead. But, generally, an aspartame detox will result in a positive health response within 6 weeks of removing ALL aspartame and other diet sweeteners (and check for hidden sweeteners found in products not labeled as sugar-free, such as yogurt and ice cream, and found in many “fat-free” products).

When detoxing from aspartame, completely remove all aspartame products, and check for hidden sweeteners.

When detoxing:

  1. remove the aspartame,
  2. use a multi-vitamin and trace mineral to replace the nutrients aspartame removes from the body,
  3. then give it time.

It can take up to 1 year to restore perfect health, but every day is one step toward total health restoration. And, it is common to expect withdrawal symptoms that can be compared to alcohol or drug withdrawal, so expect to feel flu-like for a few days, but stay consistent with your new health program.

Pay attention to subtle improvements, such as weight loss, sleeping better, and having more energy. This will happen slowly, day by day.

Here’s to your freedom from the diet sweeteners!

Hang in there, and stay patient and positive.
