I live on Equal, and I think that it is affecting me.
I use Equal on tomatoes, fruit, oatmeal, cold cereal, peanut butter, cream cheese, etc.
I am getting worried because I have been using it more than usual lately, and now I’m having problems I have never had before.
I have blurred vision within 30 minutes of reading or being on the computer. Now, I’m having problems getting to sleep.
And it doesn’t stop there.
I have leg pain at night and stiffness through the day. I can’t remember things.
I used to think that all this was old age creeping up on me. I am really worried about my blurry eyes, and I am going to see an eye doctor for this. I went to the eye doctor just last July for new glasses, but I didn’t have this blurred vision then.
Do you think it’s the Equal?
From Dr. Hull
Thank you for writing. I think your body has had enough of the toxins from aspartame – Equal.
I think you will enjoy reading my book, Sweet Poison, because you’ll think you’re reading about yourself. You are not going crazy, getting old or falling apart, even though your docs might lean that way.
I cannot diagnose this for you, but I can certainly suggest that you remove ALL diet chemicals, detox, and restore any depleted nutrients to then see (sorry for the pun) if these health concerns remain.
You’ll then have your answer.
I personally think that it is the aspartame at the root of these recent health symptoms because your body can only take so much of a daily dose of poison. It isn’t too late to repair health damage done, but I suggest getting off ALL aspartame and Equal ASAP, restore any nutrients the aspartame has depleted from your body, and return to a whole foods diet with lots of bottled spring water.
There are specific nutrients for the eyes that can help you, and let’s hope your symptoms completely disappear.
Go to my newsletter archives and pull up the articles that I have written on eye vitamins. As I wrote in Sweet Poison, I repaired the holes aspartame ate in my retinas.
If I can do it, you can, too.
Wishing you well, and good luck.
