Chronically Ill for Years – Aspartame Poisoning – Do You Have The Symptoms


By Yvonne Holterman

How much aspartame are you consuming in your daily life? Are you getting symptoms of aspartame poisoning?

Aspartame is marketed as a diet product, but it is not a diet product at all. In fact, it will cause you to GAIN weight because it makes you crave carbohydrates.

The woman in this story, who remains anonymous, is the sister of a writer who was featured on Rhonda Gessner’s blog. We hope her story will serve as a warning to anyone who consumes diet drinks with the ingredient aspartame.

The woman began to get very ill in 2001. It started with stomach spasms; she had so much pain that she had a hard time walking around and even getting out of bed. She had several biopsies done to determine what was wrong with her. Doctors couldn’t give her a definite diagnosis, but they suspected she might have multiple sclerosis (MS).

By March of 2002 she was on 24 different kinds of prescription medications and had to be in a wheelchair. She was in so much pain and felt so sick that she actually felt death was close. She began her final preparations, putting her home, bank accounts, and life insurance in her older daughter’s name, and making sure her younger kids would be taken care of.

Finally she planned a trip to Florida so she could have one last getaway. Her trip was scheduled for March 22nd. Her sister called on March 19th to ask about her test results. During the conversation, her sister recalled an article she had read about the dangers of aspartame poisoning. She asked the woman if she ever drank diet soda.

The woman responded that she did, and was about to have one that very moment! Her sister told her not to drink it ever again and emailed her the article about aspartame poisoning. Shortly thereafter, the woman called her sister with astonishing news – she had stopped drinking the diet soda and, only 32 hours later, she was able to walk again and no longer had muscle spasms!

When she got to Florida, she was no longer taking her myriad of prescription pills and only had to take one pill for aspartame poisoning. She ended up making a full recovery!

Aspartame is being marketed around the world as a sugar substitute and is found in all diet soft drinks, such as Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi. It is also found in artificial sweeteners such as NutraSweet, Equal, and Spoonful; and it is used in many other products as a sugar replacement.

Aspartame is marketed as a diet product, but it is not a diet product at all. In fact, it will cause you to GAIN weight because it makes you crave carbohydrates.

Causing you to gain weight is only a very small part of what Aspartame does. Aspartame is a toxic chemical that changes the brain’s chemistry. It can and does cause severe seizures. This chemical changes the dopamine level in the brain, and it is particularly deadly for anyone suffering from Parkinson’s diseases.

Aspartame is extremely poisonous, and here is why. One of the toxic ingredients of Aspartame is wood alcohol. When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in the
Aspartame is converted to formaldehyde, and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis.

Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of poisons as Cyanide and Arsenic – which are very deadly toxins. The only difference is… Formaldehyde kills quietly, and it takes a little longer. And, in the process of killing people, it causes all kinds of neurological problems.

Scientifically Proven Method to Reverse Diabetes (Ad)

There are 92 documented symptoms of Aspartame Poisoning leading to coma and death. The majority of these symptoms are neurological, because the Aspartame attacks and destroys the nervous system. Some of the symptoms of Aspartame Poisoning are covered below.

One of these symptoms is Lupus, which has become almost as rampant as Multiple Sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.

People who have aspartame poisoning often suffer from symptoms like breathlessness, elevated blood pressure, diarrhea – that’s always fun, right? – stomach pain, intense itching, and hives.

So if you’re experiencing similar issues like the woman in this story, you might want to ask your doctor about aspartame poisoning and see if that might be a contributing factor to your health problems.

    A chap at my gym is a retired food chemist. One day he saw me walk into the gym with a diet soda and read me the riot act. No only are man make sweeteners not good for you because they made you crave carbohydrates, certain soda manufactures chemically manipulate their drinks to have a ph-level of 5.5 which is a base. Consuming large amounts of “base” liquids will cause your stomach to over produce acids to keep your body’s ph where it belongs. With all that extra acid, you can get very bad ulcers or acid re-flux…so, drink water.

    A coworker of mine a few years ago used to make empty can pyramids every day out of diet Coke cans that she consumed that day. She only ate animal cookies!!!!! and no real food during the day. This was usually about 10 cans or so she drank each work day. She had a hard time thinking and making even an easy decision. She was around 50 years of age and didn’t seem right when I spoke to her. I am probably thinking she had seizures and died since……

    The worst form of “LEGAL’ factory poisoning compliments of Rumsfeld/Mengele…I too was poisoned with chronic joint pain etc …but especially dummed-down perceptions & reasoning from the toxic by-products (*aspatrtame is comprised of bacterial(shit) waste) formeldehyde etc accumulating in my brain that took 6 months to a year to fully eliminate. ….JUICING is the key to detox…cheers

    It takes a while for things to come around. Observe how many manufacturers state “Aspertame Free” or “No high fructose corn syrup”.

  • Joan Camara

    Please NOTE! ALL GUM has aspartame in it!! Check the labels!

  • Joan Camara

    Yeah, when about 95% of all corn crops are GMO in this country, that “no fructose CORN syrup” is really something to take note of! But then, if it’s not organic, then there’s usually some other nasty man made chemical(s) in there..

  • Joan Camara

    And buying everything you eat and drink, as organic! Otherwise, your eating and drinking GMO’s, or the many other nasty chemicals that they put in everything. As for aspertame, all gum has that in there. Check every label on the gum shelf…it’s in EVERY one of them! Sick!

    I’m pretty sure Georgine K. was just making a funny, or being sarcastic, or for that matter, just being someone with a very low IQ. I couldn’t see why you got so defensive with their silly comment, when a good response would be just to ignore them. And by the way, I think the owners of that website you mentioned will be visiting the fiery pit down under one day. They are anti-god, anti-bible, pro-gay, and just the evilest website I have ever come across! I avoid that website and wouldn’t read anything that they’d print! But that’s just me.

  • eddysachs

    Granted …yet it was the 1st paradigm I could easily grabthey did display the general information correctly as I agree that it’s just another compromised corporate rag…Georgine’s comment could be taken as a negative just as I did…perhaps a little context next time …cheers
