I strongly urge you to look up: What to do if You Have used Aspartame. Dr. Blaylock tells what supplements to take to help get that poison out of your system and help repair your cells that have been damaged by it. I have slowly started to feel better this past year. The supplements I've been taking helped a lot. But, when I started drinking very large amounts of orange juice (NOT FROM CONCENTRATE), and added selenium and alpha lipoic acid to my supplements I noticed a huge improvement. Because you have felt so bad for a long time, it may be better if you start off slow. I truly am amazed at how much better I feel. Alpha Lipoic Acid is most likely a wonder "drug".
