Hi Dr. Hull. My name is Cheatham from Hendersonville. I’m a 41 year-old female, and basically, I am emailing you because I have used aspartame for well over 15 years, and my health symptoms started after consuming aspartame.
I drink a lot of Diet Coke and some other diet drinks – they are my main drug of choice. My hubby has diabetes, so we always have all sorts of the diet sweeteners around. We don’t use Equal, though.
So here’s my story for you: I was drinking the Diet Coke pretty much exclusively every day, but I quit drinking them 3 months ago, and almost immediately my lower back quit hurting. It has not hurt since!
I am now convinced that aspartame really is a nasty chemical, and I don’t even chew gum anymore.
Now, what do I do for my hubby – that is my question?
From Dr. Hull
Wow. Good for you!
Whenever health issues disappear like this after aspartame has been used as long as you used it, I seriously point to aspartame as the cause.
Make sure to take a good multi-vitamin and vitamin C (not from corn) every day, eat mostly raw and fresh foods and quality meats, and drink of plenty of water. Slowly but surely when the aspartame is detoxed and gone, all of your hidden health symptoms should be gone, too.
And as a bonus, you’ll find that you are less hungry and will lose weight!
Now for your hubby … being a diabetic isn’t a curse, albeit, it is not fun and can be very stressful. Your husband should replace many of the ” sugarless” manufactured products with raw foods and more protein.
Simple carbs are a big problem for everyone actually, and they put stress on your body when diabetic. All the sugar-free products pushed on diabetics are very harmful, too.
More and more sodas are coming on the market that are made with stevia, and stevia is perfectly fine for diabetics. It’ll take some time for him to adjust to the taste, but encourage him to do this.
You can read in my books that saccharin is actually fine to use, too. So, he has some healthier choices – stevia and saccharin.
Encourage him to eat more protein than carbs, and in smaller portions. When he wants to snack, he can nibble on fresh veggies and fresh nuts. Get creative, and provide him real food with less simple carbs.
Keep up the good work!
The best in health to you both,
– Janet Hull
