Detoxing From Aspartame and Artificial Sweeteners

Last Modified on Dec 14, 2014

Aspartame Detoxification Overview

As health conscious individuals, we are all constantly looking for the best food substitutions to keep calorie counts down and maintain a healthy diet. Out of that desire, a great conundrum has arisen around the use of sweetener substitutes, in particular aspartame. Created as a “safe” alternative to regular sugar, continued research has shown that aspartame is actually more harmful than helpful.

Scientifically speaking, aspartame is the name given to the artificial, non-saccharide sweetener, aspartylphenylalanine-1-methyl ester. As such, it is a methyl ester of the dipeptide of the two amino acids phenylalanine and aspartic acid. With the fairly recent upturn in health concern, aspartame has been and continues to be used in a number of products including many trademark brands: Tropicana Slim, NutraSweet, Equal, diet sodas, condiments, and even some vitamin supplements.

Activated Charcoal   2  0   

Posted by John Dinsley, author of Charcoal Remedies on 03/07/2007

[YEA]  I have attached a brief note on the ability of charcoal to adsorb aspartame. Will it help curb some of the withdrawal effects? It should help to continue to detox the body, but there are some other things to consider. When leaving off certain chemicals such as alkaloids (nicotine, caffeine, cocaine,...) if the person is on an animal-based diet (acidic) the body quickly dumps the poisons, sometimes resulting in profound withdrawal symptoms. On the other hand if a person is on a plant-based diet (alkaline) the toxic chemicals tend to leave the system more gradually without the strong negative effects that so often lead the person back to the offending drug/chemical. This way the body tapers off more naturally.

What Regina is describing are classic withdrawal effects from caffeine. It would be best for her to leave all caffeine off as hard as that may be. For one Doctor I worked with it took 6 months before he was free of headaches, but he was glad he persisted.

My personal thoughts would be to:

1. consider a purely plant-based diet for 2-3 weeks until she is well away from the withdrawal effects.

2. substitute the tea for some other herbal hot drinks. The black tea is only perpetuating her craving for caffeinated drinks. She will eventually go back to the pop if she does not make the break. There are plenty of tasty substitutes to choose from. Again, a plant-based diet will dramatically reduce the withdrawal symptoms.

3. taking a warm bath will ease the headaches

4. taking a hot/cold shower, or a brisk morning walk will help with the depression.

Hope this helps. If I find out more info I will let you know. .

[YEA]   Comment about quitting too fast. I am writing for my husband who quit aspartame two months ago but still cannot focus enough to write. He is a doctor, a brilliant man that was working on cleaning up his silent LPR (gerd), stopped the ppi's and the diet soda and two days later lost part of his brain. He feels like he is on LSD... Very paranoid, high anxiety and some panic attacks...

We are following dr blaylocks protocol along with saunas and enema. And enzymes I have seen a little improvement. Trying charcoal right now .. Will update.. Also trying TM.

He did not have any of these symptoms before other then stomach and coughing..Most of the gerd symptoms are gone! But his Brian seems damaged..

He was not eating a lot of animal food other then fish, but his diet may have been acidic from coffee and the sodas...

Any thoughts..but really wanted to warn others to go slow if been drinking aspartame for a long time....

Chrissey: I would recommend several known "nootropic" nutrients to support brain health like: Taurine, Triple Strength Lecithin, Acetyl L-Carnatine, Phosphatidl Serine, Vinposetine or Huperazine. Chinese Skullcap herb, Ginko Biloba herb. 5HTP & Melatonin, rotated every other night w/ GABA, prior to retiring.

A good multivatmin/mineral will also help detoxify the alcohols or aldehydes from the tissues. Extra Zinc & Niacin will also help. NADH would be the best form of Niacin as it is an activated coenzyme that also fuels the brain w/ energy.

I drank Crystal Light exclusively for about 3 years and the more I drank it the more I wanted. I drank about 10 glasses a day. When I saw a video about Aspartame including some of the symptoms of it (like severe joint pain) I quit cold turkey. My knees used to hurt so badly that when I stood up I couldn't walk right away. I had to stand for a few seconds before I could walk, and I was in my early 40's! My vision had also diminished significantly during those 3 years, etc. I decided to quit all at once and I never thought I'd have immediate and disturbing and scary side effects from stopping. My hands and fingers felt like they were extremely swollen and I couldn't close them. I couldn't do normal things like grasp a zipper or even had problems picking up and changing my young kids. I had vertigo so badly that I could not get up and had to call my husband to come home from work. I had severe anxiety an nausea. I never ever go to the doctor, but during that first week off Aspartame I went to the doctor (I think they thought I was crazy) and the ER. These symptoms have never before or sense ever happened to me. I was "coming off of" the chemical Aspartame and it was slamming my body.

This is a sign of nutritional deficiency and resultant depressed P-450 Detoxification system. This is why it is imperative to take a high quality Multivitamin/mineral supplement 2x day.

The FDA has, decades ago, approved Aspartame as safe food additive, so conventional medicine must fallow suit and diagnose your condition as mental.

Extra Zinc and Niacin would, along w/ the mult, greatly increase the detox & removal of all those nasty aspartame metabolites. A "Homeopathic Detoxifier" would also greatly help.

Try a TBS of BSM (blackstrap molasses) in 8-10 oz. warm water and drink slowly. Getting this source of B-vitamins and necessary minerals will help replace all that was lost from the prep.

I don't know of any antidote to Aspartame but I can certainly relate to the numbness, tingling and even losing my vision. I don't know how long I was off of it before the toxic effects went away. However, I still use some drops for my eyes when my vision dims.

FYI: Turmeric and ginger are both good for inflammation.

Dear Dany,

I would try activated charcoal powder. You can get it at a health food store. You can get tablets or powder.

Take 4 tablets 3 times a day, or 1 teaspoon three times a day, always with a tall glass of water. Here is some information about using charcoal to detox from aspartame:

http://www.charcoalremedies.com/aspartame

You can also take an epsom salt bath to help with detoxing your body. 1 cup epsom salt in a tub of very warm (but not uncomfortable) water for 20 minutes or so.

I hope you feel better soon.

Hi Kelly, Look up ozone/steam portable sauna on the net & decide if it suits your needs. This type of treatment gets rid of chemicals, all the bad guys in your system, heals cancer, CFS, fibromyalgia, CMV, Lyme disease, all auto immune diseases & many more. It is widely used in Germany. It is only one of 3 treatments that I know of that cures type 1 diabetes & from what you mention it should get rid of the aspartame. The steam opens the pores & the body absorbs the ozone. Ozone is also the best water purifier.

Hi, Kelly. I'm going to suggest a few things that others might not agree with, but they might work for you! I'm presenting this in a step-ladder way that you can pick and choose which rung you could start on to help you kick your diet soda addiction. Take your time, don't beat yourself up if you slip, and find what works for you!

Switch over to regular sodas. Blasphemy, I know! But one thing I've noticed is that people who drink diet sodas can do so all day long, sometimes up to a 24-pack a day! Even those who drink a lot of regular soda don't drink that much. I know, my boyfriend is addicted to Dr. Pepper, and will drink as much as he wants, but it's never more than 4 cans a day (yikes, I know! ) The low or no calorie sodas do not diminish the cravings for sugar and actually can accentuate the "need" for sugar by tricking the body into thinking that it's getting some sugar by the sweet taste. When it doesn't get that sugar rush it was expecting, and had prepared for by releasing insulin, the body puts out the call for some real sugar so the insulin has something to do! Creates a viscious cycle of cravings without fulfillment. I've seen many people reduce their consumption of diet soda by switching to regular soda when their body's biofeedback kicks in.

At the same time, you don't want to get addicted to regular sodas, either! Soda companies like Dr. Pepper have put so much research into getting what they call the "bliss point" of drinking their product that you are pretty much guaranteed to become addicted. They have maximized the flavoring so that your taste buds are never bored and can drink as much as you can handle. What I suggest is to focus on more "natural" sodas. Look for brands that use real fruit juice as a flavoring or real cane sugar. They tend to be less sweet, but can still satisfy that sweet, carbonated craving that you might have. My favorite is a company that has two ZZ's in its name based out of Colorado, or another one from Seattle that only has about 50-60 calories per bottle, but they use real cane sugar to sweeten (they just use less of it! ). That company has "dry" in its name. (I'm trying to respect EC's no brand-name policy)

For more info on the "bliss point", check out this article: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/24/magazine/the-extraordinary-science-of-junk-food.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

You can then go one step further and make your own sodas by using tonic or sparkling soda water and adding any flavoring you want like cooled teas or fruit juices. If you're worried about calories, this might be your best choice. You can add stevia drops or xylitol to sweeten for a lower calorie hit without the other worries of diet soda. I still prefer to use "real" sugar, so I don't worry about those and just use whatever sweetener I like (honey, BS molasses, brown sugar syrup, agave, etc.)

If you decide you want to keep kicking your addiction down, try Kombucha tea. There are many brands out there with varying levels of sugar added for flavor. It's a fermented tea that has a very tangy flavor similar to vinegar but not quite. If you like the carbonation, this might quench your thirst. If you like it enough, you can make your own at home for pennies!

Another way to get that carbonation fizz is to make your own Vitamin C drink. Take ascorbic acid powder (pure vitamin C) and add baking soda in a 2-1 ratio, add some fruit juice or water and drink down. If you've ever had emergen-c, this is the cheaper alternative without all the weird stuff they put in that. There are lots of recommendations on this site about the power of buffered-C and how to make it. I agree with other poster's ideas about taking extra vitamins and minerals to address this, and this fizzy vitamin C drink is one way to do that.

Speaking of vitamins and minerals, in nature you will find that vitamins and minerals "piggy-back" on sugar on the ride into the body. Just look at molasses or fruit! Take a hint and try eating some fruit when that craving hits. You've probably heard that before, but see how it works for you. Heck, eat an apple WITH your diet soda and see how that feels. If it is going to be too hard to stick to a habit, then you won't stick to it. Find what works for you.

Tea time has been popular in many cultures for many years. Black tea, green tea, herbal teas; find one that you like. This can give you the caffeine fix that you've also been craving. Honey will add that sweetness that you're looking for as well. Try switching over. Some of the benefits of drinking tea also comes from the mindfulness of taking time out of your day to truly enjoy your tea and take a break, vs. gulping down a diet soda while you're rushing to finish something else.

Hope some of these ideas help to curb your diet soda habit. If you need more motivation to stop, search "diet soda" in the search bar and see all of the ailments associated with fake sugars. It's scary!

[YEA]  Is there any way to help alleviate the side effects while quitting aspartame? I quit drinking Diet soda about 4 days ago and it is harder than I imagined it would be. I have had headaches, muscle twitches, anger, depression and just overall been a different person. My husband is a smoker and I think the comparison of side effects from quitting diet soda is just as severe as quitting smoking. Please help if you have any ideas for me. By the way, I have continued my caffeine intake through drinking tea so the side effects are not from the lack of caffeine.

The issue is not the toxicity of aspartame that kills us. It is the resultant breakdown of aspartame by our own body to form methanol, formaldehyde, and formate which causes headaches and blindness, mostly from these breakdown.

Most drinks with such artificial sweeteners kept in room temperature storage have traces of these chemical. They are even high when the temperature reaches about your body temperature. I read a science fair project where they measured formaldehyde levels from aspartame in cola cans when kept at above 90 degrees fahrenheit (close to your body temperature) and was found to be a level higher than kept in cool refrigeration. Aspartame is formerly used as ant killers, but ants are smart and will avoid eating them.

How I detoxify obviously is to avoid processed foods and artificial sweeteners. But should the body is already high in chemical breakdown to formaldehyde, methanol, and formate, then the issue is to detoxify the blood of the resultant more toxic breakdown of these. It is these breakdown which resulted in agravated symptoms (often worse) with autism, Parkinson's Disease, and Alzheimer's disease. It is known for quite some time that drinking a couple of drops of hydrogen peroxide 3% between 6 - 12 drops one glass of water will breakdown the toxic chemical and reduce its toxicity.

What I do to detoxify myself to first take a couple of drops of hydrogen peroxide 3% and then after a couple of days I take things that will repair the neural damage such as vitamin B complex, vitamin E, vitamin C sodium ascorbate for at least 2 weeks before I fully recover from deafness or somewhat partial blindness a decade ago when I was accidentally drinking aspartame cola.

Charcoal won't absorb them, but taking amino acid supplements will certainly displace them. I think this is a more practical way to dealing with it. Charcoal is always good in detoxification from other things, and it is best to use them, even if aspartame cannot be adsorbed. What adsorbed aspartame the best in your intestinal tract, I think this is not the best method to tackle in the long run. Getting a diarrhea I think will just clear the 20 feet of intestines of toxic buildup in general is a more practical route.

[WARNING!]  Many on this site may be eating and drinking things that have what is actually a poison in them without knowing it.

It is in most diet drinks, some hot chocolates, even cookies (biscuits). We need to be aware of what we are eating when we eat processed foods. Nutri sweet (aspartame) is poison. It is in most processed foods.

Here is a video from Dr. Mercola. There are 91 symptoms... No 1 symptom is headaches.

[SIDE EFFECTS]   I am barely getting over my detox of aspartame - about 60 days since I stopped diet coke and sugar free products about a 12 year habit. It has been scary. I had been drinking about 5-6 diet cokes per day. When I'd wake up, during every meal, after work, before and after exercise, and before bed! It was controlling my life, I swear.

One day, I decided cold turkey I needed to give up this addiction knowing that this just isn't right. The 60 day withdrawal was horrible for me and it literally lasted 60 days. I had headaches, sleepiness, muscle pain, joint aches, muscle spasms and twitching, stiff neck, and some of my hair came out. It was so scary I was beginning to think it was permanent. I went to the doctor 3 times to get blood tests because I was convinced that I was coming up with an auto immune condition, either Lupus, Rheumatoid athritis or multiple sclerosis!!

Well, it turns out, that all of my symptoms were related to artificial sweetener detoxification! Whew, I WILL NEVER put the substance or serve anything with this poison again! I also put in a complaint with the FDA. I am not understanding why The Health Watch would allow this killer to be on the market....

I am spending the rest of my time, spreading the word that we need to demand that THEY stop putting poisons in our foods. Children are suffering, people are being diagnosed with MS, and other chronic diseases that could be blamed on toxins in our food. I have not had a migraine for months, nor any sinus infections, I immediately can tell if something I ate has caused me a problem. Listen to your body and give it what it needs and not what it doesn't.

Has anyone tried Asxanthine? What a difference in my eyes for sure. Anyone out there who is suffering with MCS, MS, FMS, Chronic Fatigue, and other issues like lupus and parkinson's, GET OFF ASPARTAME and ARTIFICIAL SWEETNERS AS SOON AS YOU CAN. You will be amazed how your health will change.

After consuming multiple two liter bottles of diet coke daily for 30 years, it was suggested to me that my pain symptoms could be aspartame poisoning. I quit dc within a day and for a while everything was improving... My mind was clearer, the pins and needles in my face are gone, I could stand longer, and I could go on. However, two weeks into detox and I am having serious muscle spasms, confusion, and red ant sting after effects in my legs. I must say that my desire for real food is coming back. I do have two questions: 1) Are there any recommendations besides a good multiple vitamin and 2) how long does withdrawal take?

Aspartame is a poison. Rather than taking a multivitamin you would be better to start juicing with organic green vegetables to detox your body and get real vitamins into your body. Many multivitamins are just synthetic copies of real vitamins and they contain minerals which are not organic so your body cannot assimilate them. Minerals in plants are organic and the body can use them. Wheatgrass, chlorella and spirulina are all excellent to detox your body as well.

Can I suggest you read Excitotoxins, the Taste that Kills by Dr. Blaylock, a neurosurgeon. MSG and Aspartame both kill brain cells. In his book he says that magnesium will protect you from the effects of MSG and aspartame (magnesium is found in green vegetables).

Another good author is Dr. Norman Walker who has some good books on juicing. He lived to about 109. Juicing is the fastest way to get nutrients back into the body. He also says that tap water is bad for us because it contains non organic minerals, again that the body cannot assimilate. We should all be drinking distilled water.

Hi Debbie in Melbourne: Thank you for your reply. I got some green vegetables and real fruits and am endeavoring to get these into my diet. Eating real food is going to help.

I also got some Gatorade with electrolytes to be sure I am not flushing my system with too much filtered water and losing electrolytes. I am going to beat this aspartame poisoning!

As for mineral sources from veggies, we are told that most commercially grown foods, including organic, are depleted. Another warning is the phytates found in veggies, especially legumes, which bind what little minerals we do get from plant sources. Solution #1, consume much sea veggies as possible as they are much higher in minerals than land V's. Solution #2 supplement w/ broad-spectrum digestive enzymes to ensure maximum absorption and assimilation of nutrients.

As for distilled water, am I incorrect in assuming it is stripped of minerals thru distillation??? Jon Baron recommends distilled water as the purist, but one must add minerals (preferably ionic trace).

This site has been a Godsend to me over the past week. About a week ago, I began worrying that the muscle spasms and difficulty swallowing I had been having was related to MS. The next day, I went from drinking 5-6 diet cokes a day to drinking 1. I have been a very heavy diet coke drinker for many years. The next day, I began having even more symptoms. I began having heart palpitations, shakes, dizziness, insomnia, etc. I plan to stop the diet coke altogether later this week and I am scared to death I will have more symptoms. I feel I need to do it though, otherwise I really will make myself sick.

It's been reported that the big champion MS promoter Michael J. Fox was once awarded a truck-load of diet cola for doing a commercial for the manufacturer way back in the day when he was in good health, which really helped launch the Aspartame - MS connection. This observation has been disputed and I haven't researched it, but have little doubt because the profit industry always does the cover-ups and MJF seems to intentionally indulge and exaggerate his condition while on camera. MJF associates have reported this while saying he's just fine most-times.

I just found out about this website a week ago. Some of the stuff seems pretty far fetched but some hits the nail on the head. This being one that I truely believe. I quit smoking about 3 yrs ago and started chewing gum to get over that habit, so now thats my habit mainly cause I feel I have sour breath. I am going to try the peroxide mouth wash method to remedy that. But back to my point I have been chewing the crap out of gum with aspertame in it and have been trying to cut down/stop and noticed that I have been getting some of these symptoms but most people have wrote about diet soda but havent read much about it being in gum, I guess the amount in the gum could cause the same effects?. Hopefully I kick this habit and these side effects roll out with the habit.

I'm a chronic gum chewer and Coke Zero drinker or I can now say I WAS since I kicked those a few days ago. I'm having muscle twitches and extreme fatigue so far. After reading the above comments I guess I can expect to feel that for the next 55 days? Great! It will be worth it though. After only 5 days I haven't needed to sleep with my humidifier and my husband said I haven't snored the last two nights! I'm looking forward to feeling better and better each day. For those looking for healthier alternatives to make detoxing from aspartame easier I have switched from Orbit gum to Pr gum which is aspartame free. I switched to Zevia diet soda which is sweetened with stevia and it is better than I thought it would be. Amazon offers a rainbow pack where they send a case that includes 2 cans of every flavor they offer. I now use monk fruit sweetener to sweeten my coffee in the morning. The only other sugar free item I used sometimes was sugar free maple syrup. From now on I will just use regular maple syrup. This has made my transition easier even though the detox side effects have been rough. Reading the posts here was very helpful as I thought I was getting some form of facial bells palsy with the muscle twitches on one side of my chin! ?! Crazy that one chemical can reek havoc on your system and the FDA allows it. I will be filing a complaint as well.

Hi Alison, Before you file your complaint I thought I'd share with you why I feel the FDA does not care.

In 1991 I sent certified letters complaining about the toxic effects of MSG and Aspartame to the F(ool)and D(eceive)A(gency). I had to follow up with tracers on both. I then sent a restricted letter to the commissioner (David Kessler at that time). I never received any signatures even though the envelope was repeatedly stamped with requesting a signature. I did not receive any response other than some propaganda.

In 1993 I gave testimony to the FASEB committee(Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology) along with MD's, a PhD. And several others to no avail. We are all on our own, to do our own research in order to protect ourselves because the FDA is not doing what they were established to do. This site is our lifesaver.

To Timh of Louisville, KY: Actually, Michael J. Fox has Parkinson's, not MS.

Thanks for the correction Christine! If I am correct, both Parkinson's and MS or Multiple Sclerosis are neurogenerative disorders.

This reminds me of the basketball player and HOF'r Magic Johnson and his big HIV positive announcement many yrs ago. No chatter for some time and Magic is living the big time instead of wasting away somewhere. There are so many factors in the AIDS thing that people who obsess HIV as the only cause are obviously fulfilling an agenda.

Hey Timh,

Really loving your posts lately. The neurodegenerative diseases are neuron (brain) disorders like Huntington's, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's...good article on Wiki (under neurodegenerative).

MS, on the other hand can have lesions in the brain but often the starting place will be in the vertebra. My wife's MS started with two lesions in the dorsal of the spine. Suddenly one morning about 18 years ago she could not walk after awaking from a night's sleep. MRI demonstrated the lesions and she was diagnosed with on set MS. In the case of MS, what I did immediately was to get the mercury out of her system (MS often associated with mercury and virus) ...she had just had a lot of dental work performed four months or so earlier. AND kill the virus...I used colloidal silver in large quantity. And supplemented with AEP to help rebuild the nerves and sphingolin (to rebuild the myelin sheath). After about six months she never had another MS issue.

Dave: So glad to hear the success in your Wife. Early detection is so very important.

Yes, I have finally improved enough to post w/ some efficiency lately. It is very slow going and am still in the trenches. For the last 3 yrs I have spent 75% time in bed. I really don't know how I'm still here. At the end of many days I say to myself "well, I've lived thru another day". My most objective explanation was something on the order of your post about the infection as I have major chronic viral, bacterial, and fungal w/ the addition of 2 species parasites juveniles and cyst or eggs. My guess would be running a high fever, going to dr or hospital, then a coma, then death. Thru major intervention I have obviously avoided this outcome. The recharge batteries was definitely a wise investment as the zapping has been extensive and w/ 3 zappers and 3 frequencies.

I have been Nebulizing the C.S. on a regular basis as I am certain this kills the Ascaris eggs which I have read prefer the lungs. I have just recently killed adult Ascaris in one of my kitties as is evident from purged food. He has a very bad cough/lung infection which is improving although I may need to do additional treatments. I saved the little feller about 2 yrs ago from near death from the worms.

As for the neuro, I have made major improvements in this regard beginning w/ zapping the spine. From my estimation, the fungal issues that have been plaguing my intestines was the spores being released from my spinal fluid; and this has been going on over 15 yrs. I had the brain pain; used Magnets and zapping on w/ temporary success, but now since zapping the spine, that is a problem no longer, although the gut is still populated w/ pathogens.

The Calcium AEP was like a miracle when I was going down for the out count; but not enough as I leveled and began descending again, then the miracle of Hemp Oil/CBD. Now, the social instability in the country. There are cures for those ills, but as the singer says "I've been singn', but no one's listen' - their all lost in a world of their own" -C.G./GCS.

Did you see my request as for inquiring about the possibility of augmenting the C.S. w/ oxygen like Leonard Horowitz has done w/ the product "OxySilver". It's some kind of hydrolysis where oxygen radicals are not a produced. Also, have you ever chelated your Silver w/ Glycine? It is my understanding that many manufactures' do amino chelation w/ their C.S. and thereby greatly increasing the PPM. I am drinking two cups C.S. daily w/ seeming little effect, so I really am looking to make improvements upon the concentration.

Intense Migraines, dizziness, and tingling sensations in my face have completely disappeared after years of Aspartame use. All through natural means - look at www.CancerTutor, and www.Chrisbeatcancor. It's a harsh truth but long term heavy use of Aspartame probably causes brain cancer, therefore you must attack it like it is.
