Q & A about Aspartame

Aspartame and Diarrhea

Q: I get fast, and strong, diarrhea when I accidentally use a product that contains aspartame. Am I crazy, or can this really happen?

A: You are not alone in your experience, and more people than you think have this happen to them, too. This is a very common reaction to the toxins, and your body is simply trying to get rid of them quickly. This is why your body flushes your system with diarrhea. It's unpleasant, no doubt, but a way for your body to get rid of the toxins quickly. Actually, that's a sign of a healthy immune system. Your body doesn't like the toxic chemicals in aspartame and sucralose, so what does it do? It pushes them out as fast as it can.

Aspartame and Mental Health

Q: Since I stopped using aspartame, my state of health has improved remarkably, and that improvement started within the first few days. Is this possible? Over a period of some 10 years, I regularly consumed 2 or 3 cans a day. As time went on, this increased to 3 or 4 cans a day.

A: You used it for over a decade, and you drank more diet colas every day than you drank anything else. Believe it when you witness its accumulative effects. Aspartame has been proven over and over again to penetrate into the brain, so that much aspartame over that period of time can certainly affect your mental state.

Stay away from all diet chemicals, and keep improving.

French Green Clay and the Aspartame Detox

Q: I am using the French Green clay for my aspartame detox. Any problems with taking the clay for extended periods?

A: This is where you learn to read your body's symptoms. If you feel that your health symptoms are gone, simply keep the detox supplements on the shelf for a future time when they may return, or if you simply feel rundown, or if you do a yearly cleanse for prevention, like I do.

The natural detox supplements should never harm your body - only help keep it clean and strong. So use the clay as a cleaning tool, as you would changing the oil in your car or dusting your house.

If using the clay (cleanser) for an extended period of time, make sure you take, or eat, the daily nutrients needed to replace any vitamins the toxins may block or eliminate. Cleansing releases toxins and the healthy nutrients need to be restored. So as you continue to detox, also continue to replace necessary nutrients and a healthy balance should remain.

Aspartame and MS

Q: I began having horrible muscle spasms and memory lapses. I went to a neurologist and was given the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. I had been ingesting everything diet for about five years trying to take off about fifteen pounds. The results - I received a MS diagnosis, and had terrible memory loss and gained ten pounds. Can aspartame cause MS?

A: Yes, aspartame can cause MS, and the best resource for the information on this is a DVD on amazon.com by Woodrow Monte, PhD: Solving the Mystery of Multiple Sclerosis: Is Your Diet Secretly Poisoning You? Excellent DVD!

The best in health,
