Deadly Aspartame

0-788475369-aspartame1

Aspartame is a crystalline protein that is derived from two amino acids: phenylalanine and aspartic acid.

The FDA refers to aspartame as a food additive, never a drug. A drug on the label of a Diet-Coke might discourage the consumer.

Since aspartame is classified as a food additive, adverse reactions are not reported to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

Characteristics

Aspartame is 200-300 times sweeter than sugar. Just as sugar, it has its list of adverse reactions and side effects, which include:

  • Anxiety
  • ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder)
  • Candida Albicans (yeast infections)
  • Obesity
  • Headaches
  • Hyperactivity
  • Tooth decay, and
  • Diabetes

The list of adverse reactions and side effects include, but is not limited to:

  • Brain lesions
  • Headaches
  • Mood alterations
  • Skin polyps
  • Blindness
  • Brain tumors
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Various cancers, and
  • Short-term memory loss

Aspartame is economically cheaper and sweeter than sugar, which is very appealing to soda beverage companies. It is also very appealing to weight watchers who are seeking to lose weight because of its low calories.

Aspartame Converts to Formaldehyde

What most diet soda beverage drinkers don’t know, is that aspartame, once inside the human body, converts into formaldehyde!

Biological and medical knowledge lets us know that the natural human body temperature is 98.6, which means that any time you consume a substance made with aspartame, the aspartame in those substances is going to convert into formaldehyde as a chemical by-product.

Aspartame is found in over 1,200 food products as a so-called food additive, including diet soda beverages, chewing gum, non-dairy creamer, and candy. It is most popularly referred to as Nutra-Sweet.

Alternatives

One would be wise to get off of all synthetic sweeteners such as Splenda, Equal, Nutra-Sweet, sucrose (white table sugar), and brown sugar. Instead, there are many natural sweeteners that curb the craving without the negative side effects, such as:

  • Maple syrup (Grade B or C)
  • Agave nectar
  • Stevia (plant, should be green)
  • Fruit

Though DHerbs does not recommend honey as a natural sweetener or for food consumption purposes, however, honey is far better and safer alternative than any man-made chemical sweeteners.

Solutions

To detoxify your body from the harmful effects stemming from the residues of using harmful sweeteners, DHerbs offers these solutions:

    Q: While doing a candida cleanse, it was told to me that I should be following a raw food diet full of fruits and vegetables. Fruits have high sugar content and can feed a candida overgrowth, as it is a well known fact that candida albicans thrive on sugar. How can I justify eating fruits high in sugar? Thank you for your comments. Ozzy

    A: Yes, when you have a candida issue it's best to avoid refined sugar. Sugar from a natural source like fruits should be consumed moderately. In your case it would be best to consume fruits mainly in the mornings for breakfast when your body maximizes on food the most, avoiding the ones that are very high in sugar.

    Q: If I gave the SUGAR BUSTER to my child for adhd what effect is it going to have on them compared to what they are taking now, one is on addrell and the other is concerta? I have no idea! I really don't believe in ADD! ADD only means a child is too advanced and is greatly bored in the classroom learning non-mentally stimulating things for an old world paradigm. However, the drugs you are giving those innocent children are harming their bodies and overall health. Problems are not fixed by drugging. Have you read our article entitled "ATTENTION-DEFICIT DISORDER"?

    Q: I just completed the Full Body Cleanse about two weeks ago and started the Pancreas Formula for my pancreas... I don?t have the money for the full kit but after the Full Body Cleanse I?ve notice my blood averaging +-200.....it had reached a low of 124 during detox. I bought cromium and have used it since the onset of detox at about 1200 mcg per day! My Pancreas is a piece of crap!!!!! I haven?t had ANY thing with added sugar or artificial, just green tea with stevia to sweeten it. NO Treats! The only regular food I get now is like lean cuisine type once or twice a day with fresh vegetables or fresh made Veg juice....I had went from 327lbs to 289lbs during detox but since I?ve went back up settling at about 296 and stable. I have cut everything I love out of my life! No Sugar, No Milk Products. About 6 ounces of meat A WEEK eat mostly live vegetables yet I see a Pancreas that needs to be punished for ruining my life!!!!! I try to help it and this is what it does for me! I don?t know what to do next.

    A:

    If you can't afford the full kit or kits, order and drink some of our Herbal Teas to help maintain the pancreas in its normal healthy secretion. Cinnamon Tea can also provide additional benefits.

    We also recommend a daily pancreas regimen of: Pancreas Aid, Pancreas Formula, and Sugar Control.

    Your vegetable juice should consist of GREEN BEAN (Snap pea) and/or BRUSSEL SPROUTS, to help maintain pancreatic health.

    Q: I'm doing the Full Body Cleanse and I have a few questions about it: I get tired of drinking just the distilled water and I'd like to drink the herbal teas, but I don't like it by itself. Would it mess things up to add a pack or two of Splenda to my tea or maybe honey? I can't stand the salads with the olive oil or apple cider vinegar or the lemon juice as dressing and it makes me gag. I have To have some sort of salad dressing. What kind would be suitable? Do I look for sugar-free? Or organic and natural? I found one that is organic and natural, but it has 3 grams of sugar in it. Without eating all my whole grained breads and other fiber, I haven't had much of a bowel movement in 3 days, should I wait a while yet? (I had surgery on my bowels and always had to take fiber tablets and eat lots of grains to get my bowels to move.) I haven't done the enemas yet, (low on money) should I try that? Or should I resume my fiber tablets I normally take? Any type of fiber I could add to my fruit smoothies in the morning? I want to also do the female cleanse. Is it ok to do that immediately after I finish the full body cleanse or should I wait for a little while? Thank you for all your help, I feel much better than I did before and I just started this detox a week ago, lost 10 pounds, too, woohoooooo! Thank you

    A:

    1. Instead of splenda, use agave, stevia, or grade b maple syrup as a sweetener.

    2. In re Salad Dressing, an organic and natural one is great. You can also check our website for salad dressing recipes.

    3. The fiber pills are not part of the cleanse, so we wouldn't advise those. Fruit is you best choice of fiber so look into eating more papaya, mango, figs, etc. And yes, colonics (and enemas) would greatly help you - undoubtedly!

    4. You can do the Female Cleanse right after you finish detoxing. There's no need to wait!

    Q: Before purchasing this product, I'd like to know if there are any adverse effects once you stop taking it? Of course I'd like to maintain the length and girth that you advertise, but I don't want to be on maintenance medication, especially since I plan to have a very long sex life. Will your product assist me to naturally perform at peak level, once taking it for a period, and then weaning myself off of it?

    A:

    THIS DEPENDS ON YOU SIR; IF YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PERFORM AT PEAK PERFORMANCE ONCE STOP TAKING THE CAPSULES! HOWEVER, IN REGARDS TO ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS, THERE ARE NONE WITH HERBS, ONLY DRUGS. NOW WHEN YOU STOP TAKING THE HERBS, I CAN'T TELL YOU WHAT THE RESULTS WILL BE BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW YOUR DIET. THE BEST WAY TO KNOW IS TO DO A THING!

    Q:

    A: Fibroids develop from certain foods within the diet such as sugar, dairy, certain meats and other processed foods.  When your body doesn't expel waste properly the tumors can develop. We always recommend doing the Full Body Cleanse followed by the Fibroid Cleanse, especially for large fibroids.  Both cleanses require you to adjust your diet, which is a major part in getting rid of the tumors.  The Full Body Cleanse eliminates the toxins and waste from your body and detoxes all of your major organs.  The body is always more receptive to healing when your overall health is in a better state.  The Fibroid Cleanse includes multiple formulas that helps the tumors shrink. You can continue with the Fibroid Formula after cleansing.

    Q: Good Day to you. July 07, I was diagnosed with having the auto-immune disease Myasthenia Gravis. Since then I have had several hospital stays, including a surgery to remove my Thymus Gland...(beleif that this was one cause)and taking many medications, one of which suppresses my immune system, the others include steroids which have terrible side effects...etc. My latest hospital stay, I was placed on the vent and intubated, because of the Myasthenia and an infection that my body couldn't fight off (suppressed immune system) that further complicated the MG restricting my respiratory system. That was a truly scary and painful experience. I am only 32 and I have been searching for a more natural approach to eradicating this Dis-Ease of the body which they say there is no cure. My thoughts are, they are not looking for cures...if they did, that would mean the pharmaceutical companies no longer have reason to continue to poison and make dependent on them those whom they make the medications...which eventually cause other problems...meaning they don't make money if cures are found. The continuous pill taking and side effects are causing more problems than the original diagnosis. Please let me know if any of your products are a possible answer to my prayers. I am desperately seeking...in addition to keeping the faith and staying strong in prayer, a more natural approach to dealing with MG and taking care of my body, the temple of which the creator has kept alive in spite of this potentially dangerous ailment. Thank you in advance for your time.

    A:

    You didn't have to have your thymus gland removed. This gland is the seat of the immune system so the doctors removed your natural defense and then gave you toxins which are really exacerbating your situation. I recommend that you perform the FULL BODY DETOX and after performing, take a daily regimen of RAINFOREST TONIC, IMMUNE BOOSTER EXTRACT, KHEMETIAN GOLD, ACTIVATED CHARCOAL and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD. You can overcome your present health crisis! Just stay strong, focused (on your healing), and POSITIVE! Every problem including with health is an opportunity!!!!!!

    Q: Hi Dherbs. I'm pregnant. I've been slacking off with my diet for years now, eating just about every bad thing but pork. I had gestational diabetes with my last pregnancy. Now I may have it again with my current pregnancy at 4 months. They're going to give me the 3 hr test and I know they'll try to make me take insulin. I really don't want to shoot myself with needles. It wasn't a pleasant experience last time. Anyway to make a long story short, I wanted to know if the following would be good products to work on the situation: FULL BODY DETOX SUGAR BUSTER TEA PANCREAS FORMULA Would any of these pose a problem or interact poorly with my baby? Do you suggest any other effective formula of yours to improve my glucose uptake and general health during this pregnancy?

    A:

    I highly suggest the 10-DAY ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD CLEANSE for pregnant women. This cleanse will help to address all your needs and all health concerns. You can perform it as much as you like too! It provides great nutrition for mother and developing child.

    Q: Is necessary to continue food combining after completing FULL BODY DETOX in 20 Days? For example can you consume sweet fruit with sub acid & acid fruit also starches and vegetable (beans) proteins together? I learned in Nutrition that starches (rice) and beans are complete protein when combined together that our body needs. Are you at risk for protein deficiency if consuming vegan diet?

    A:

    IT'S YOUR CHOICE! OF COURSE IT'S BEST TO CONTINUE TO DO SO. IT'S UP TO YOU, BELOVED! I PERSONALLY DON'T RECOMMEND IT. NOT TRUE! YOU CAN'T GET PROTEIN FROM COOKED FOODS REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE FOOD IS. OF COURSE NOT, UNLESS YOU ARE IGNORANT TO PROTEIN, REAL PROTEIN, HOW AND WHERE TO GET IT.

    Q: I have purchased and started your FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) but I need your advice. I'm a so-called diabetic, I'm not overweight 5'9" 140lbs. I've read many of your articles including the one titled "Can I take my medication with FBD?" The first day I started the detox, I didn't take my meds and all I ate was fruits and veggies but my blood sugar was higher than it had been in a long time...356 to be exact. So I stopped and started this week, while taking my meds and it's still been higher than normal...in the 200's range. I understand that you stated that the herbs would be working against the meds since they're considered poisons in the body. My concern is this, I want to continue to cleanse my body but I don't want my blood sugar to stay out of control for an extended period of time...for obvious reasons. My question is, what do you suggest I do in continuing this cleanse? Will the FBD regulate my blood sugar levels over the next 2 weeks as my body begins to repair itself? Or should I continue taking my meds until I'm done with the cleanse? I plan to do the pancreas cleanse next. Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Peace

    A:

    Like we clearly and unequivocally explain in so many of our articles, the body is and will regulate itself and you will see this via fluctuation. Levels will be up and down and inconsistent. Your body is going to heal in its own way so if you are concerned about high levels for extended periods of time, you may want to take your meds and refrain from taking the herbs until your levels reach a level you feel safe with. You know, religion is not the only thing that requires faith. Healing requires faith too!

    Q: I am a 38 yr old single black female smoker desiring pregnancy. 3 yrs. ago I was diagnosed with pcos, type II diabetes as a result, along with a fibroid on the left side of my uterus. After much research, I have come to believe in your philosophy of healing from within, in an all natural manner. Although I am in the process of making drastic lifestyle changes from a sad diet to vegan and anti smoking, I feel as though I am in need of western medical assistance. I have scheduled an appointment with a gynecologist, for next week, but still plan on ordering the FULL BODY DETOX and FIBRIOD BUSTER CLEANSE AND REGIME with the next two weeks. My question to you is this: What could be the possible side of effects of such drugs as metformin, clomiphene citrate, or a combination of the two for fertility while I am on your prescribed FULL BODY DETOX and FIBRIOD BUSTER CLEANSE AND REGIME?

    A:

    IF YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE DRUGS THEN DON'T TAKE THE HERBS AS YOU'RE JUST WASTING MONEY. HERBS WILL CANCEL DRUGS OUT BECAUSE HERBS CLEAN THE BODY OF TOXINS AND DRUGS ARE TOXINS. TAKING HERBS AND DRUGS SIMULTANEOUSLY DEFEAT THE PURPOSE IN ALL TRUTH BELOVED.
