Comments: I've been drinking Diet Coke since 1994. At least someone warned me about its dangers in the 1980's when the controversy was quite big. Thanks to corporate conniving, that died down in the "official" i.e. "corporate media."

I have been diagnosed with Social Phobia, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, "Neurotic" Depression, Schizophreniform Disorder, Acute Anxiety and Schizoaffective Disorder, as well as having Type II diabetes with fatty liver/high liver enzymes. I stopped aspartame 3 weeks ago, added more natural foods and garlic supplements, and a chemical-free multivitamin to my diet.

I already feel more relaxed, alert, intelligent and confident. I now try to walk 10,000 steps every day, I have also come off statins, aspirin and Prozac - gee, I wonder what caused the foul moods and depression and anxiety in the first place?

This is not a delusion; I feel better already, my sleep is better and I have less nightmares, I don't suffer from acid reflux or so many gastric problems. I am looking into a detox and changing to all organic. I am getting tested for Gluten and food sensitivities as well, and basically doing what the psychiatry and the pills can't do for me because they deny that the problem even exists!!

From Dr. Hull:
You are right on track now, and never doubt that aspartame is the toxin behind your health worries. Aspartame has been proven to be a neurotoxin, and many phobias are directly connected to its toxic effects. It remains a mystery to us all why the medical community refuses to acknowledge this toxic substance as REAL; it is simply good science to accept this likelihood, and it defies common sense for anyone to discount the direct cause and effect aspartame has on mental and physical health.

Keep your new program up and you will restore your health and become your former self. How can you not????

Thank you for writing.

Comments: I just stopped using Diet Coke. I have been diagnosed (16 years ago) with a mild case of Multiple Sclerosis. I have many side effects associated with aspartame.

My concern is: how does one detox the formaldehyde from your body? If that is at all possible.

I have had depression, am easily aggravated, my skin itches, which I will scratch until I draw blood sometimes, I have asthma and general difficulty breathing, and 8 years ago, I had a blood clot which turned into a bilateral embolis, which threatened my life. I have bad cramps in my hands and legs. My feet tingle and are like blocks of ice come the fall, through the winter, and in springtime . . . nothing warms them up . . . not even a hot bath. I stopped smoking almost three years ago. I stopped using Diet Coke 3 days ago.

I'm terrified. I'm angry as hades and cannot understand why we would even have such stuff on the market. I can't understand at all; the same with MSG. Why would an entire country poison their people? It's really hard to get one's head around that . . . really hard.

How much of my health can I recoup from my use of aspartame if I am not using it anymore? Is there any hope whatsoever?

Thanks, just millions.

From Dr. Hull

Never give up hope that once a toxin is removed from the body that health CAN BE RESTORED. Staying away from aspartame will definitely improve your health, and illness WILL NOT GET WORSE.

SEARCHING FOR THE CAUSE OF HEALTH SYMPTOMS IS THE ONLY WAY TO REALLY REPAIR THEM AND TO REVERSE THE DAMAGE. IF THE CAUSE IS NOT REMOVED, THEN HOW CAN HEALTH BE RESTORED?

Removing aspartame is the first step to take, as you have done. Detoxing from the toxins left behind, such as the formaldehyde, can be done slowly but surely. Detox using chelation or a detox program, such as my Aspartame Detoxification Program, and do this until you feel the adverse health effects have stopped. Then restore any damage done by supplementing with real, whole foods that the body can truly feed from, drink mostly water throughout the day (tea, quality coffee in the morning and pure juices are good, too), take your vitamin supplements, and make sure to get regular exercise and a good night's sleep.

This should restore your health over time, and as each day progresses, so will your health!

The best in health,

Janet Hull
