My blood pressure normally runs about 135 / 75. On aspartame or sucaryl daily for just one month my blood pressure rises above 165 / 90. If I go longer, say two months, it gets up to 175 / 100 range. This is dangerous territory indeed. My elevated blood pressure is just a little less violent to vitamins – but still too high.
Oooops! There's another important consideration to allergies. Its called "Climate"! My major allergies are to pollens. As a result, I do not fare well in dry climates and I absolutely thrive in a tropical environment – damper better. Other people thrive in a dry climate and need to avoid high humidity – dryer better.
The best way to get a handle on your allergies – if you have any and just what they are – is to consult an allergenist. Allergenists do not come cheaply, but they are well worth investment so far as your health is concerned. The next way to get a good handle on allergies is to experience them and document them and learn how to avoid them.
Your good health will be your reward for learning to cope with your allergies in advance, by avoiding them and staying healthy.
