Here is a post shared by one of our Inner Circle Members, Maria from Montenegro.
Aspartame Consumption: More than a year
Health symptoms started after consuming aspartame: Yes
Diet Products Used: Orbit chewing gum, Diet Pepsi
Do you use Equal: No
May we include your case history on her website: Yes
I was on a very strict diet, and since I wasn’t allowed to eat sugar, and oh I really like sweet food, I started using Orbit chewing gum to satisfy some sort of sweetness.
I also used to drink Diet Pepsi in my high school, but I didn’t realize it contained aspartame. In fact back then, I didn’t even know what aspartame was.
Later, when I turned 19, I decided to go on a diet. After some regular blood tests during a check-up, the first doctor I went to diagnosed me with Graves disease.
My TSH antibodies were too high (0.7) and my TSH was 0.004.
I went to another doctor, but he didn’t give me any therapy, and suggested “let’s wait one month and we will test you again.”
I didn’t want to wait. I went on the internet and found out that aspartame causes many problems including Graves disease.
I looked at the Orbit, which I consumed at least 10 pieces every day, and it contained aspartame.
I immediately stopped using all food with the artificial sugars, and started eating as much raw food as I could, and drinking at least 2 liters of water per day.
Now after one month, I went to get a second blood test, and they showed a miracle –TSH antibodies were gone, and the TSH number is getting better.
The doctors in the lab didn’t believe that I’m not under any therapy.
I just wanna say to all people diagnosed with any medical problem – don’t lose faith and believe you are gonna be alright and never lose hope.
And it’s very important that you choose the right doctor with a lot of experience because lack of experience of a doctor can lead you to the wrong diagnosis.
Take care everyone and good luck!

What a great post. This is what happened to me, as you know.
You did all the hard work, and with some faith in yourself, you have a very happy ending.
So many people want to believe that these diet sweeteners are safe, and when we work with people like you, we can’t understand why anyone would doubt that aspartame is a true health toxin.
Congratulations! You saved your health, and you saved your own life!!
