Can Chronic Pain come from Food Additives?Written by Jane Oelke

It is always amazing to me when I find a food substance that when taken in excess can cause pain body. And sometimes these foods, and food additives that are regulated by government, are supposed to be safe. When I test clients and their supplements, or ask about their dietary habits, or chemicals in their work environments, we often discover chemicals or foods that are causing their chronic pain symptoms. When these chemicals are removed, much of their pain subsides.
When I talk to clients, I often ask if they can decipher what foods tend make pain worse or better, and if they crave certain foods in their diet. One of foods I am always listening for are diet soft drinks with aspartame (Nutrasweet). From personal experience, I have been relieved of constant headaches when I was convinced to stop drinking Diet Pepsi. I was a regular user and once I stopped drinking it, nagging headaches that I had for a long time totally cleared up. So if you are drinking diet soft drinks, STOP NOW, and see what difference it makes. I have had quite a number of clients feel much better just a couple weeks after abstaining from soft drinks.
Recently, we have been introduced to new fake sugar called Splenda. Advertising for Splenda says that is made from sugar, so it tastes like sugar. But this doesn’t tell whole story. Splenda is made by taking out 3 of 6 molecules that make up sugar, and adding chlorine molecules. If you are avoiding chlorinated water because of chlorine toxicity, then you should be avoiding Splenda. You are getting chlorocarbons from Splenda that can cause immune system problems, such as thymus gland shrinkage, and other genetic and reproductive damage.
The FDA approved Splenda in 1988 as a sucralose sweetener that tastes just like sugar. But sugar flavor is artificial, since Splenda is about 600 times sweeter than natural sugar, so sugar flavor is forced out of partial sugar molecule. And our body cannot use sugar in Splenda as fuel for our brains. It does not turn into glucose we need for brain function and energy production. Early studies show many of same side effects, such as headaches and chronic pain, as found with aspartame.
