Aspartame Detoxification Program Proposed

Aspartame is a highly toxic sweetener which unfortunately, through political pressures overriding the warnings of the FDA's own scientists, has obtained approval from the FDA and consequently from health authorities world wide. It is being sold as a low calorie way to get that sweet taste, and is being recommended for diabetics and anyone who would like to avoid sugar.

Thousands of products, including sports drinks and the ubiquitous "light" soft drinks as well as all kinds of bakery goods for those who want to avoid sugar, contain the poison. Consequently, we are seeing an epidemic of ill health of truly monstrous proportions. You think SARS is bad? AIDS? Look at the side effects caused by Aspartame! Ask around your friends and neighburs, if they have any of the symptoms. Chances are they are on Aspartame.

Janet Starr Hull, Ph.D. describes the common symptoms and recommends a ten-step Aspartame Detoxification Program:

Aspartame Side Effects

by Janet Starr Hull, Ph.D., CN

There are over 92 different health side effects associated with aspartame consumption. It seems surreal, but true. How can one chemical create such chaos?

Aspartame dissolves into solution and can therefore travel throughout the body and deposit within any tissue. The body digests aspartame unlike saccharin, which does not break down within humans.

The multitude of aspartame side effects are indicative of our genetic individuality and physical weaknesses. It is important to put two and two together, nonetheless, and identify which side effects aspartame is creating within you.

Aspartame Side Effects

The components of aspartame can lead to a number of health problems, as you have read. Side effects can occur gradually, can be immediate, or can be acute reactions. According to Lendon Smith, M.D. there is an enormous population suffering from side effects associated with aspartame, yet they have no idea why drugs, supplements and herbs don't relieve their symptoms. Then, there are users who don't 'appear' to suffer immediate reactions at all. Even these individuals are susceptible to the long-term damage caused by excitatory amino acids, phenylalanine, methanol, and DKP.

Adverse reactions and side effects of aspartame include:


- blindness in one or both eyes

- decreased vision and/or other eye problems such as: blurring, bright flashes, squiggly lines, tunnel vision, decreased night vision

- pain in one or both eyes

- decreased tears

- trouble with contact lenses

- bulging eyes


- tinnitus - ringing or buzzing sound

- severe intolerance of noise

- marked hearing impairment


- epileptic seizures

- headaches, migraines and some severe

- dizziness, unsteadiness, both

- confusion, memory loss, both

- severe drowsiness and sleepiness

- paresthesia or numbness of the limbs

- severe slurring of speech

- severe hyperactivity and restless legs

- atypical facial pain

- severe tremors


- severe depression

- irritability

- aggression

- anxiety

- personality changes

- insomnia

- phobias


- palpitations, tachycardia

- shortness of breath

- recent high blood pressure


- nausea

- diarrhea, sometimes with blood in stools

- abdominal pain

- pain when swallowing

Skin and Allergies

- itching without a rash

- lip and mouth reactions

- hives

- aggravated respiratory allergies such as asthma

Endocrine and Metabolic

- loss of control of diabetes

- menstrual changes

- marked thinning or loss of hair

- marked! weight loss

- gradual weight gain

- aggravated low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)

- severe PMS


- frequency of voiding and burning during urination

- excessive thirst, fluid retention, leg swelling, and bloating

- increased susceptibility to infection

Additional Symptoms of Aspartame Toxicity include the most critical symptoms of all

- death

- irreversible brain damage

- birth defects, including mental retardation

- peptic ulcers

- aspartame addiction and increased craving for sweets

- hyperactivity in children

- severe depression

- aggressive behavior

- suicidal tendencies

Aspartame may trigger, mimic, or cause the following illnesses:

- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

- Epstein-Barr

- Post-Polio Syndrome

- Lyme Disease

- Grave's Disease

- Meniere's Disease

- Alzheimer's Disease


- Epilepsy

- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)


- Hypothyroidism

- Mercury sensitivity from Amalgam fillings

- Fibromyalgia

- Lupus

- non-Hodgkins Lymphoma

- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

These are not allergies or sensitivities, but diseases and disease syndromes.
Aspartame poisoning is commonly misdiagnosed because aspartame symptoms mock textbook 'disease' symptoms, such as Grave's Disease.

Aspartame changes the ratio of amino acids in the blood, blocking or lowering the levels of serotonin, tyrosine, dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline. 

Therefore, it is typical that aspartame symptoms cannot be detected in lab tests and on x-rays. Textbook disorders and diseases may actually be a toxic load as a result of aspartame poisoning.

Ever gone to the doctor with real, physical symptoms, but he/she can't find the cause? Well, it's probably your diet, your environment, or both.

Aspartame is the common denominator for over 92 different health symptoms at the root of modern disease. The Aspartame Detoxification Program demonstrates the most effective way to reverse disease symptoms is removing the underlying cause - aspartame.

I counsel aspartame victims worldwide and have witnessed nine out of 10 clients restore their health by following the Aspartame Detoxification Program.
Begin with detoxifying your body of all residual chemical toxins from aspartame's chemical make up of phenylalanine, aspartic acid and methanol and their toxic by-products, and see if any adverse health symptoms remain. Try the Aspartame Detoxification Program, and within 30 days your symptoms should disappear.


Remove all sugar-free products with aspartame from your diet.

Learn to 'read' your body. Begin recording any health changes.

Get a hair analysis.

Be happy with yourself.


Restore depleted nutrients.

Exercise and get plenty of rest.

Eat 75% raw foods at every meal.

Drink water, water, water. (Pure water with no chlorine, fluoride, aluminum, lead, arsenic, etc.)

Get control of your life.

I designed this Ten Step Program to help protect your health and the health of those you love from being seduced by the sugar-free diet craze. Wishing you good health.

What can you do about aspartame side effects?

Set an example by changing your diet.

Tell everyone you know.

Talk to the schools and day care centers. Offer to speak at parent-teachers meetings.

Contact your local, state, and Federal government representatives.

If you see someone with a diet drink, ask if they have had any of the typical aspartame side effects.

Spread the word at your work.

Distribute the Aspartame Consumer Safety Network and Pilot's Hotline

Tell your doctor about the scientific research available proving the negative side effects of aspartame.

Register a complaint with the EU Health Commission, FDA, the FAA, the NutraSweet Company about aspartame poisoning.

Return all food products with aspartame, opened or unopened, to your grocer. 

Tell him/her the products make you sick. The grocer can return them to the manufacturer for a store refund. The manufacturer should get the message. So, will the grocer.

Spread the word on computer networks.

Publish articles in newsletters at your church, place of work, or neighborhood association.

Set a personal example for health and wellness.

Josef -

Thanks for the info. Can you cite other sources (other than Dr. Hull I mean) that corroborate some of these claims? I'm not a fan of artificial anything, but would like to see other sources stating the same thing as above. Sounds pretty awful.

I am on zoloft and drink diet sodas because it is sugar free. Until recently I didn't know that aspertame was in diet sodas and other diet foods. I am on disability for almost 2 years now and due to inactivity I have gained weight. I cannot walk very long,stand long or sit long, plus I have shoulder and neck injuries so exercising is something I can't do at this time. Depression, stress and pain cause a lot of problems but I have to take my medication. I also take vicodine for pain. Does drinking diet soda react to the zoloft/vicodine causing me to have diarrhrea? I appreciate your help.

I am a recovering alcoholic and bulimic hooked on diet coke. I am scared of going off it and can't replace it with any has to be done though because my sight is blurry, I get crashing fatigue and hypoglycaemia, headaches - all symptoms of aspartame toxicity. This stuff is very addictive and scary! I also chew a lot of sugarfree gum and my menstrual cycles are screwed up and incredibly painful. All because of artificial sweetner.

Here is a comment on Aspartame, received recently by email:

I too am a 12 year user of aspartame, in the form of Diet Dr. Pepper. I was never over weight, I just drank it because I was concerned about getting too much sugar. In the last six or seven years, I drank six to eight diet dr. pepper's a day (sometimes more). The panic attacks and fear of heights and high bridges while driving started about five years ago.

My doctor put me on anti-depressants, but they only worked for a month or so then she would either up the dosage or switch me to a different one. I slept all the time.

After a year, she switched me to Paxil-CR and within 3 weeks, I gained 35 pounds. To go from 5'7" and 125 pounds to 5'7" and 160 pound in three weeks is quite a feat, and anyone could imagine how I was feeling. I stopped taking all the drugs and started taking massive doses of multi-vitamin b. This helped considerably, but like the anti-depressants, the helpful effects didn't last. We moved to Texas in May and I had to drive for two days to get here. When we crossed the bridge over the Mississippi, I thought I would die (literally).

When we got settled here in Houston, I did a little research on the things I was consuming. I thought I had developed some sort of allergy. When I started researching aspartame, I related more than just the panic attacks to the aspartame. The depression, the mood swings, the horrific change in my temperament, heart pounding, the loss of hearing in my left ear, the drastic changes in my eyesight, the stomach cramping and constant diarrhea, the fact that my arms and fingers go to sleep at the drop of a hat. All these things were not normal for me and had all appeared in the last five or six years--like I was sliding down a slippery slope.

I have been off aspartame since August 1, 2005. The panic attacks are not completely gone, but the vivid nightmares are gone, the sleeplessness is subsiding, the paranoia is decreasing, the moodiness is actually getting worse, but coming from someone who stopped smoking, I know that will pass also.

I want to know how we get aspartame off the market. I would be interested in a law suit, but not really interested in monetary gain. I just want them run out of business!

Shame on Monsanto!!

My daughter has been suffering from Siezures, numbness in her legs and slurred speech
for about 1 year now. She started eating healthy and one of her choices was to start drinking diet coke and using the sugar substitutes. she has been to numerouse doctors and hospitalized with no findings. What can we do to find out the true cause of her ailments ? She is going to stop using sugar subsitutes but how can we tell that asperatme is the cause?

To: pnhernandez@...
From: "Dr. Betty Martini,D.Hum."
Subject: New Comment Posted to 'Aspartame Detoxification Program
Proposed' (Seizures, slurred speech)

Dear Nelva,
Aspartame is a seizure triggering drug and if you go to you will see the FDA report of 92 documented symptoms on aspartame. Note there are four types of seizures they admit are triggered by aspartame. Not only that aspartame interacts with all drugs, like Dilantin or other anti-seizure medications. These are recorded in Dr. H. J. Roberts medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic or 1 800 827 7991. Also, on this site is the RAO study which was pivotal in the approval of aspartame, I would print it out for your physician. Notice 7 infant monkeys were fed aspartame, 5 had grand mal seizures and one died. And they used this to prove safety!!

The slurring of speech is caused by the free methyl alcohol liberated from aspartame, chronic methanol toxicity. Incidentally, this is what affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes the addiction. It destroys the central nervous system and causes these kinds of neurological problems. So, if you're on aspartame, this is what it causes. Many times physicians will diagnose a patient with MS because of it. It mimics MS and can precipitate it. In fact, Cori Brackett, is an aspartame victim who drink lots of diet pop and was diagnosed with MS. She got on our web site, got off aspartame, and walked out of her wheelchair. Eight months later her large lesion was all but gone off the toxin. She went on to make the aspartame documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, You'll see some of your symptoms in this movie.

Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., has written a paper for those who have been on aspartame called What To Do If You Have Used Aspartame, He has wonderful advice because what you're interested in is getting well. On the bottom of his paper he has his books which also go into your problems.

I would also suggest that you join the Aspartame Information List on the front page of and you can continue to ask any questions you have, and will get my emails as well as others. Also, click on aspartame on the left side of the page and you'll get a lot of new press releases and information on this neurotoxin. Be sure to read the new article from the prestigious Ecologist in London, September issue cover story on aspartame. In fact, I'll give you the URL that will take you straight to the magazine.

As to tell if aspartame is the cause, we always say take the 60 day no aspartame test. In other words, get off of it for 60 days to see if your symptoms go away. Of course, nobody ever gets back on it. Aspartame is a deadly neurotoxic drug, and Dr. H. J. Roberts has declared aspartame disease to be a global plague. Please keep in touch and let me know how you're doing. Also, very important, do not get on Splenda/sucralose. It's a chlorocarbon poison. And aspartame is a chemical hypersensitization agent, so many times when people get off of it they think they have become allergic to certain things. They go from aspartame to Splenda and have horrible reactions. If you must use a substitute you can use Stevia from any health food store or you can get it from Sunrider or Stevita which have the best tasting products. And now in Whole Foods they have Just Like Sugar which is made from chicory and orange peel. But don't use chemicals.

I hope you will be much improved soon.

All my best,

I began drinking diet pop in the early 1980's. I believed the FDA propaganda it was 2 perfectly innocent amino acids and many foods contain methanol, although nutrasweet contained such less and a person could drink as much as they wished.

Early on, i have recoliction of tingling and shooting pains from my arm and legs.

However i cannot deny that in 1998 during the hot summer days, i would drink lots of diet pop when working real hard and a couple of times when i drove home, i had a couple of severe vertigo attacks. After that, the tinnitus and as of present my right ear i am totally deaf with noise intolerance and my left ear is severly hard of hearing.
As of present i am both very noise intolerant and almost deaf, contact lense issues, infact many of the stated physical effects, i have experienced. I didn't know about it, until i read the symptoms in 2004. Absolutely... i don't even question now that is directly related to the aspartame, i only wish i could have been told the truth initally. Overall i am perfectly healthy, except for this meinere's diease & deafness except for one issue, the side effects directly related to the nutrasweet. So much for a trustworthy public defender of food additives

I had 2 bad reactions to aspartame. I never drank diet soda, but once I was served a large dish of sugar-free pudding which must have been loaded with aspartame. I became very panicky and had to go to my room to get away from my own family. I paced the floor and felt like I wanted to die. I knew it must be the pudding, so I drank as much water as I could to dilute it. After laying in the room for a few hours, I felt well enough to join the family again.

I have been suffering from heart palpitations, shortness of breath, sleep issues, ear ringings, etc for about 2 or more months now. I went to the doctor and was told that I have an anxiety disorder and was placed on Celexa to help ease the issues. After a couple of days on the medicine, I started having panic attacks and I felt like I was going to die. I was rushed to the hospital but all vital signs were fine. I was sent home where I suffered more panic attacks. I didn't know what was going on. I stopped taking the Celexa medicine, thinking that it may be causing adverse reactions. The panic attacks stopped but all of the other issues continued. I did some research and found that I may be allergic to Aspartame. All of the symptoms matched AND, for the entire time I was having the symptoms, me and my fiance had been drinking Crystal Lite religiously. I cut out all artificial sweeteners from my diet and everything is back to normal. Hopefully me case will help someone.

I have been suffering with tinnitus for about 5 months now and I have discovered this about aspartane and since last summer I have been using drink packs to flavor my water. I have been to the doctor and he says it is allergies but now I am convinced it is the aspartane. I have quit the drink packs for 7 days now and my symptoms have improved drastically!!! Thanks to God,he lead me to this aricle. Thanks to you for posting this!!!
