According to Lendon Smith, M.D. there is an enormous
population suffering from side effects associated with
aspartame, yet have no idea why drugs, supplements and
herbs dont relieve their symptoms. Then, there
are users who dont 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
trouble with contact lenses
tinnitus - ringing or buzzing sound
severe intolerance of noise
marked hearing impairment
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
shortness of breath
recent high blood pressure
diarrhea, sometimes with blood in stools
pain when swallowing
Skin and Allergies
itching without a rash
lip and mouth reactions
aggravated respiratory allergies such as asthma
Endocrine and Metabolic
loss of control of diabetes
marked thinning or loss of hair
marked weight loss
gradual weight gain
aggravated low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
frequency of voiding and burning during urination
excessive thirst, fluid retention, leg swelling, and
increased susceptibility to infection
Additional Symptoms of Aspartame Toxicity include the
most critical symptoms of all
irreversible brain damage

Aspartame may trigger, mimic, or cause the following
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Mercury sensitivity from Amalgam fillings
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 Graves 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
Ever gone to the doctor with real, physical symptoms,
but he/she cant find the cause? Well, its
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.
