I saw your articles on the diet sweeteners, so I thought you could help me – no one else seems to have a clue.
Q: Here’s my question
For the past two months, I’ve experienced swelling around my eyes with a burning sensation and aching around my right eye.
I have also been drinking Crystal Light® daily, which is a new addition to my life within the past two months. I originally thought it was due to a sinus infection, but the eye doctors have not been able to treat me, and regular doctors aren’t sure what’s going on.
Benadryl® doesn’t help; and neither does aspirin. Could this bad reaction be from the diet sweeteners?
Thanks for your time.
A: From Dr. Hull
Thanks for contacting me. I don’t mean to rag on doctors, but I get so frustrated that most allopathic doctors are clueless when it comes to WHAT is causing someone’s health problems.
It’s not unusual for your doctors to ignore aspartame reactions and the other diet sweeteners; aspartame was something the medical community has never taken seriously.
Today, there are so many toxins floating around, doctors are even more in the dark connecting which toxin is causing what health symptom.
Just know that there are no coincidences when you have a reaction like this after introducing a new toxin into your diet! I think that you have uncovered the root cause of your recent eye issues without your doctor’s help.
Yes, stop all diet chemical sugars, carefully read ALL of your food labels because diet chemicals are in products NOT labeled sugar-free, and wash your eyes daily for a few weeks with warm salt water – or do this for as long as this issue persists.
You should detox from the diet chemicals for 10 days to 2 weeks, and you can download my Detox Program ebook for free from my website.
Let’s see if this helps and quickly, too. Let us know.
Best in health,
