Artificial Sweeteners to Avoid

From the Desk of Dr. Kandilakis

Part 2: Artificial Sweeteners to Avoid
Artificial sweeteners are regulated by FDA, just as food additives are,
BUT this does not apply to products ‘generally recognized as safe”???.

Several Examples:
27. Saccharin: Carcinogen found to cause bladder cancer in rats. (Worst Offender)
28. Aspartame: An excitotoxin and thought to be a carcinogen. Can cause dizziness, headaches, blurred vision and stomach problems.
29. High fructose corn syrup: Sweetener made from corn starch. Made from genetically-modified corn. Causes obesity, diabetes, heart problems, arthritis and insulin resistance.
30. Acesulfame potassium: Used with other artificial sweeteners in diet sodas and ice cream. Linked to lung and breast tumors in rats.
31. Sucralose: Splenda. Can cause swelling of liver and kidneys and a shrinkage of the thymus gland.
32. Agave nectar: Sweetener derived from a cactus. Contains high levels of fructose, which causes insulin resistance, liver disease and inflammation of body tissues.
33. Bleached starch: Can be used in many dairy products. Thought to be related to asthma and skin irritations.
34. Tert butylhydroquinone: Used to preserve fish products. Could cause stomach tumors at high doses.

Not only are these chemicals toxic and potentially carcinogenic, THEY ARE STRONG FREE RADICALS that will destroy cell membranes as they pass through your body
…..A Free Radical is a Molecule that usually has an extremely strong charge or pull and can destabilize your cellular membranes.

This may also lead to LEAKY GUT (Little rips and tears in your intestinal lining). This lets everything into your capillaries causing an immune system that is very reactive and sometimes always “ON”.

This leads to, Autoimmune conditions, allergies, poor digestive function, brain fog…Chronic inflammation…. Should I go on????

If you are experiencing ANY of these symptoms make an appointment for a correct evaluation and EFFECTIVE Treatment

Overview of Leaky Gut Diet Symptoms and Nutrition
Leaky Gut
Leaky gut syndrome is a rapidly growing condition that millions of people are struggling with and don’t even know it. From the sound of it, you might think leaky gut syndrome only affects the digestive system, but in reality it can lead to many other health conditions.
According to research, the cause of your food allergies, low energy, joint pain, thyroid disease, autoimmune conditions and slow metabolism could be leaky gut symptoms progression.

If you are dedicated and serious about 
healing leaky gut and autoimmune disease, I need you to know about a recent study that IDs seven food additives that trigger leaky gut, or at the very least contribute to the condition.

Tight junctions that protect the intestinal mucosa become damaged and leaky gut results and autoimmune diseases arise . This allows bacteria, toxins, allergens and carcinogens that normally protect the gut and immune system to leaky through and set off autoimmune diseases.

So what, exactly, is leaky gut? Known in the medical literature for more than 100 years as “intestinal permeability,” in my opinion, many modern doctors don’t know how to ID and treat leaky gut. That’s a shame because it’s believed to be at the root of which is at the root of many diseases. Signs and symptoms you have leaky gut include inflammation, joint pain, inflammatory skin disorders and rashes, food allergies and sensitivities and all sorts of other health problems including:
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Autism
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Eczema and psoriasis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS)
  • Type 1 diabetes
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please call to make an appointment to be CORRECTLY Diagnosed and Effective Treatment.
