Comments: In April of 2009, I started drinking large amounts of Crystal Lite iced tea. In May of 2009, I started having neurological problems (seizure like) where I would become very lethargic and go in and out of consciousness. My limbs would become very limp, and I would be extremely tired afterwards.

I had nine of these occur over a 4-month period, and I had many, many medical tests done, but with no findings. I heard about aspartame side effects, and I read your articles. I stopped all products with aspartame on July 24, 2009 and as of August 24, 2009, I have not had any more episodes.

From Dr. Hull:

Thank you for writing. You can now regain good health! As soon as you avoided ALL diet chemicals, your health restored. Good for you!

Now, take a good multi-vitamin and a vitamin C every day to replace what nutrients the diet chemicals have robbed from your body. Drink mostly water and eat real foods; smaller portions throughout the day will satisfy you and you will not gain any weight. Actually, the diet drinks make the body hang on to weight in the long run.

Sadly, the only way we can beat the system is to do what we are all doing - reaching out in every way that we can to help get the warning out to those who are unaware of this health issue. You obviously could not get the medical help you needed, and that was advice from your doctor to stop using the diet products.

This sugar-free fad is worth so much money and has so much control over those who think that they need these unnatural sweeteners. This is seen in everyday marketing campaigns. It's going to take every one of us to keep driving the truth forward, even if one person at a time.

Keep up the good work, and thank you for your participation in helping others by writing me. Those around you will see that you got well because you eliminated the cause of your recent health trauma. Don't worry about what your doc says, either - the AMA is way behind the times concerning this issue. They took your money and you didn't get a darn thing for it. Turns out that YOU know best!!!!!

The best in health.
