Case reports of fibromyalgia chronic pain sufferers cured by removing the artificial sweetener aspartame (Nutrasweet) from their diets.
Aspartame may be the reason that diet soda consumption during pregnancy has been linked to premature birth.
Nontoxic treatments should always get precedence, and you can't get much more nontoxic than removing processed foods from people's diets! Alternately, many folks suffering with fibromyalgia symptoms may have been misdiagnosed and are actually suffering from an easily treated vitamin D deficiency. What's the best way to treat that? See Vitamin D Pills vs. Tanning Beds, one of my dozen videos on vitamin D. I've got a bunch of previous videos on sweeteners including Is Nutrasweet Bad For You? and Update on Aspartame. Erythritol is probably A Harmless Artificial Sweetener. Tomorrow's video-of-the-day Diet Soda and Preterm Birth addresses concerns about aspartame consumption during pregnancy.
