How to Detox From Aspartame and Other Artificial Sweeteners

Posted by Malibudoll35 (Los Angeles, Ca) on 11/12/2011

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....
