Sugar Substitute ~ SPLENDA .... VERY IMPORTANT READ FOR EVERYONE. I just had a in-depth conversation last night with a friend that has been suffering from severe migraine headaches and vertigo issues, as well as complication with tinnitus, as we spoke I realized it was some of the same symptoms that I had experienced years ago, and which my doctor misdiagnose. But hearing what she had to say, and the pain, suffering and fear she had and was going through made me decided to do more research.
One of the things she mentioned to me was that <
IF TAKING SPLENDA WAS OK, if since she removed sugar from her diet. > I told her I didn't think so, but more information was warranted. I also told her that one of the misconceptions with people today is that they are told that only SODIUM causes INFLAMMATION!!! BUT SUGAR DOES TOO!!! READ SUGAR SHOCK.
Here's some interesting research I found from IDEA FITNESS. When you read the article you'll find that all of the symptoms and than some is listed here. She had also mentioned that a family member was a diabetic and splenda was what they had began to use as a substitute. After reading this article there's lot to be said about really doing your homework about the types of ingredients that the FOOD INDUSTRY IS SAYING IS SAFE FOR SPECIFIC DEMOGRAPHICS.
I'm not saying that this is what is causing her symptoms, but what I am saying is, if you're dealing with issues that continue to happen, and continues to get worst, do your homework. What I suggest is a process of elimination with your diet. See what foods upset you. And if you're eating a lot of one thing, if the symptoms continue or get worst. Check the known lists of items and their known side effects and go from there. For me, all of her symptoms are on this list, and than some. Her Physician suggested the same thing, and gave her a list of what foods to avoid and why. She's getting better and doing well. But it is a on going process back to recovery.
Stay tuned for updates.
