Aspartame Withdrawal and Side Effects Explained – Here’s How to Protect Yourself

If you have been drinking diet soda and chewing gum, chances are you have been enjoying aspartame in generous quantities. Aspartame is a popular sugar substitute that can be found in diet soda drinks, chewing gum, fruit spreads and sugar-free products to name a few. It is also known by the brand names, Sweet One, NutraSweet and Spoonful. Despite its popularity in the market, what many do not know is that aspartame accounts for 75 percent of side effect complaints received by the Adverse Reaction Monitoring System (ARMS) of the US Food and Drug Administration.

Can aspartame be addictive?

Yes, according to Dr. Betty Martini, popular anti-aspartame advocate. She explains that it is an “addictive, exitoneurotic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered drug and adjuvant that damages the mitochondria.” Moreover, Dr. Janet Hall, another famous advocate against aspartame, shares on her website that all artificial sweeteners create an artificial need for more sweetness. She goes on to add that forced sweetness, being a class of altered food, is a trap that cause people to become addicted to sweeter tasting food with no nutritional value.

Recent studies have shown that aspartame is addictive because Continue reading

Reverse Osteoporosis by Simply Drinking Lactoferrin, Find It in Your Fridge

Did You Know…that a whey protein found in milk can be taken in supplement form to reverse osteoporosis, treat iron deficiency, as well as restrain the growth of HIV?

You may have seen the advertisements and TV commercials about potent bisphosphonate drugs that treat and prevent osteoporosis. Such drugs are marketed to post-menopausal women who are at highest risk of acquiring osteoporosis. The drugs, however, come with potential side effects that are serious.

In 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning that use of bisphosphonates increases the possibility of severe and sometimes incapacitating bone, joint and/or muscle pain; and the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research stated that long-term use of bisphosphonates may increase the risk of a rare but serious fracture of the thigh bone.

Research shows that a “natural medicine” derived from milk may be an alternative approach to preventing and reversing osteoporosis — without exposing one’s self to the adverse side effects that accompany the use of drugs.lactoferrin

A study carried out at the University of Auckland in New Zealand found that lactoferrin, found naturally in milk, Continue reading

This has led some doctors to suggest Continue reading

Antibiotics May Be Linked to This Painful Condition

Antibiotics are used to treat infections. This is an important and valuable thing when it comes to safe-guarding your health. But the latest health news says that taking too many antibiotics could have negative effects. According to researchers at the University of Manitoba, these wonder drugs may be causing some unwanted prescription side effects.

It all centers on the bacteria in your intestines. Some of these bacteria are helpful and some of them are harmful. The problem with taking antibiotics for an infection is that the drugs are not able to distinguish the good bacteria in the intestines from the bad. This means that, along with any infection that the antibiotics are supposed to kill, some good bacteria may also be destroyed. And when that happens, bad bacteria may multiply, Continue reading
