Fibromyalgia Symptoms Eliminated From Discontinued Use Of
Aspartame & MSG

Fibromyalgia patients had complete or nearly complete resolution of their symptoms within months of eliminating Monosodium glutamate (MSG) or MSG plus aspartame from their diet.All had symptoms return whenever MSG was ingested. It certainly is worth a try to

Ann Pharmacother. 2001

Relief of fibromyalgia symptoms following discontinuation of dietary excitotoxins.

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Fibromyalgia is a common rheumatologic disorder that is often difficult to treat effectively.

CASE SUMMARY:

Four patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia syndrome for two to 17 years are described. All had undergone multiple treatment modalities with limited success. All had complete, or nearly complete, resolution of their symptoms within months after eliminating monosodium glutamate (MSG) or MSG plus aspartame from their diet. All patients were women with multiple comorbidities prior to elimination of MSG. All have had recurrence of symptoms whenever MSG is ingested.

DISCUSSION:

Excitotoxins are molecules, such as MSG and aspartate, that act as excitatory neurotransmitters, and can lead to neurotoxicity when used in excess. We propose that these four patients may represent a subset of fibromyalgia syndrome that is induced or exacerbated by excitotoxins or, alternatively, may comprise an excitotoxin syndrome that is similar to fibromyalgia. We suggest that
identification of similar patients and research with larger numbers of patients must be performed before definitive conclusions can be made.

CONCLUSIONS:

The elimination of MSG and other excitotoxins from the diets of patients with fibromyalgia offers a benign treatment option that has the potential for dramatic results in a subset of patients.

Celebrities promoting drug use and Pepsi?

What kind of message are we sending our children when celebrities are promoting prescription pills on handbags and promoting Pepsi Cola?

The Olsen twins are selling a new handbag for $55,000 with prescription pills which seem to glamorize drug use.

What message do you think they are sending?

Beyonce signed a 50 million dollar deal with Pepsi Cola

What is this combinations doing to their bodies and especially if they are mixing it with street drugs such as ecstasy or cocain?

I think money is the object here not mindful wealth or healthful living.

The FDA – Do they really have your best interest at heart?

I was just reading from the Health Ranger that they have shut down yet another
natural healer, I went to the FDA’s website to check things out. Upon the last       paragraph that I read:

FDA, an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

  • protects the public health by assuring the safety, effectiveness and security of

  • human and veterinary drugs

  • vaccines and other biological products for human use

  • medical devices.

  • FDA also is responsible for the safety and security of our

  • nation’s food supply

  • cosmetics

  • dietary supplements

  • products that give off electronic radiation

  • regulating tobacco products.

I am in awe of this statement when in fact they allow all kinds of products on the      shelves that will indeed harm us. They even block out products that help heal and         even fight cancer and herbs and natural medicines that have been healing people for thousands of years because they can’t profit from them.

There are no regulations on cleaning products or personal care products and they            are filled with many toxic chemicals that can indeed harm you. They allow chemicals, preservatives, dyes, aspartame, msg, and genetically modified chemicals into your         food chain without your knowledge. They allow mercury in vaccines and all kinds               of drugs onto the market that are later pulled off because of severe side effects or        death. They allow them there to begin with, then they play the hero of pulling them          off the shelf to protect us when they find out they cause harm to humans? Vicious         little circle.

I include everything on my website that I want to keep in my collection. These             videos show the other side of the FDA and the Drug Companies they don’t want               you to know about. Proof that they are causing harm to humans. We have been               kept in the dark too long and I believe we are putting our trust in the devil. You                  be the judge and make your own informed decisions:

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

 

There are a lot of people with Fibromyalgia suffering with stomach pain . There are several reasons for the pain and you should investigate them all until you come up with an answer to your pain. We are all different and there is no one cure all for everyone.

1. Diet

a) Lactose intolerant – milk can cause a wide array of problems from diarrhea,
stomach aches, mucous, breathing problems see articles below. Dairy is a protein
and contains casein. Cheese and milk chocolate can be constipating which can cause
a lot of colon and intestinal pain.


http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1298

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1292

b) Gluten intolerance or Celiac disease can cause a lot of digestive upset as in
stomach pain, diarrhea,

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1292

c) Aspartame and MSG and preservatives are known to cause a wide array of problems including stomach ache, headaches.

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1090

Tell Kraft to label their Genetically altered foods:

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/942

2. Endometriosis can cause a lot of lower abdominal pain as well as Fibromyalgia.
This video I was watching shows a connection that Endometriosis could be
connected to getting a blow to the stomach.

When I was about 10, I was a pitcher on our baseball team and I took a line drive right to the stomach. Boy, it took my breath away especially being about 60 lbs. I
always had a pain in my lower abdomen after that especially when I was running.
I eventually lost my ovary due to a cyst and then suffered with endometriosis.
Could there be a connection?

This is a great article on Endometriosis causing Fibromyalgia and how dioxins in food can cause pain and even cancer. A must read for anyone suffering with
Fibromyalgia, endometriosis or cancer:

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/188


3. Chronic abdominal pain
has to be evaluated to rule out anything serious. It could be referred pain from
another organ such as liver, colon, stomach, small and large intestines, gall
bladder, pancreas or kidneys. If you have ruled out any serious cause and it is
diagnosed a part of your Fibromyalgia you need to take a serious look at your
diet. The thing you crave most is usually the culprit. Things you say you
couldn’t live without, well, you could live longer or with less pain if you take
them out of your diet.

The best place to start is
with water. When you wake up in the morning, drink two glasses of water to help
clean your colon out. If you have plugged up plumbing, how can you possibly have
a good day carrying around all that extra baggage? It only leads to long term
problems like diverticulitis, polyps or even cancer. I believe it causes
exhaustion and stomach problems at least.

Live whole food such as
fruits and vegetables can help you digest your food better. The average diet is
lacking in digestive enzymes since we McDonaldized out food.

If you suffer from stomach
aches, take out the preservatives, dyes, chemicals and genetically modified food
out of your diet and add healing foods, you’ll be glad you did.

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

Now that all the hustle and bustle of the holidays is over, the pain and fatigue sets in for people with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, cancer, arthritis or any other chronic pain. Over use and abuse of certain muscles, mental and physical stress and the wrong kinds of food will do it.

What we can do now is sit back and take a good look to identify the cause for the excess pain so we can avoid repeating it next year.

– get yourself a yearly planner

– plan to start shopping earlier, listen throughout the year for hints of what they like and put it in your planner.

– you can spread the financial burden of the big Christmas bill by buying a gift every month from now to next year and you can have it wrapped and tucked away for the big day.

– delegate some of the work that causes you the most pain

– when you start to experience pain, stop what you are doing and stretch the muscle that is overworked before it gets into a big ball of pain

– ice the sore muscle or injury

– exercise such as walking or dancing gets our blood and thyroid moving, it also works out a lot of kinks and pains. Go for it!

– hot showers work out a lot of pain and kick starts a sluggish thyroid

– epson salt baths helps ease pain as well as detoxifies

– plan healthier choices for food! I don’t believe we should eat foods that cause us pain or symptoms, then take a pill to settle the upset. Find foods that work with your body’s needs to what makes it feel good rather than feeling ill. Be brave, learn to resist it if it is going to leave you in pain! Is it really worth the suffereing?

Food is definitely my poison and I can experience severe pain and the strangest symptoms when I eat certain things.

The book one mans food is another mans poison is a really great book everyone should read to understand your blood type – food connection. It opened my eyes to relating what was going on in my body and mood to certain foods I was eating. It took me many years to learn that many of my symptoms were food related, others were mechanical and some from the weather itself. Who knew that the mucous I coughed up was from eating dairy? Or the tingling hands and feet were from the flour I ate. As a kid, I thought it was normal to have a headache and a stomach ache. Now I just removed certain foods and I don’t suffer anymore. If I only knew then, what I know now.

The head pain I now have is from the TMJ a dentist gave me from a botched implant. I could have taken Tylenol for the rest of my life and it would never correct the problem. I think more people should consider their teeth and jaw position when having headaches or head pain. I have severe pain in the joint just under my right ear and up the side of my head. My dentist is working to correct my jaw position and the pain is starting to subside. 

Learn what is causing your pain or symptom, if it is food, simply try to avoid it, if it is an activity, find another way, spread the activity out or get someone else to do it. We are all different and different foods cause different reactions in certain blood types. Get to know what ails you!

There are many other choices out there and we have found many wonderful foods to replace the old white flour, dairy, fried food and sugar diets. Try to make a change for the good this year! 

– the all popular chocolate can cause a plugged colon, very constipating to some people yet they will still eat it, then take laxatives for it not realizing that it is from the chocolate. Chocolate is good for you but not most you see at the stores, they are nothing more than loads of sugar, not so healthy! 

– dairy can cause pain and diarrhea

– flour can cause a host of symptoms you wouldn’t believe

– sugar can cause a plethora of health problems and a lot of sugar is genetically modified beet cane sugar now


http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/942


http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/772

– chemicals in food like msg and aspartame can cause a lot of health problems

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1003


– the weather is something out of our control. I can’t function in the rain, it leaves me weak and frail and in pain in all my joints. For those of you who have a lot of money and a lot of pain in the damp weather, the only thing I have found that offers some hope so far is farabloc clothing but I haven’t tried it. I think it would work though. 

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1176

Sometimes the reason for pain is not so obvious though. For example, I never knew why I was in such severe pain for days after we traveled long distances in the truck. It was because every bump on the road was pounding the heck of my damaged coccyx. Also from having a twisted pelvis all the bouncing of the truck yanked away at the muscles around my hip and spine, so I could barely walk for days. The doctors just blamed it on the Fibromyalgia.  

I now have a pillow with the coccyx out of it or a long skinny pillow tucked under my right sits bone helps save me days of severe pain.  

I had so much pain throughout my body I couldn’t zero in on the cause of any one particular pain, so they labelled it all Fibromyalgia. It took me 20 years to finally get to the bottom of each pain and symptom! Once you understand it, you can better deal with it! Don’t ever give up to finding the exact reason for your pain. Being in the dark won’t help you regain your health, nor will never ending prescriptions. 

Getting to know your pain is half the battle! Once you learn to recognize the triggers that make it worse, you can try to avoid getting to that point where it becomes that agonizing, nauseating pain that is unbearable.

Aspirin is widely used for pain, it originated from white willow bark, salicin. We didn’t like the bitter taste so we synthesized it into a chemical mixture and called it aspirin. Most medications are discoveries from Mother Nature anyways, they just synthesize the healing properties and make it in a lab. Why not take the real thing? I don’t understand why we want to make everything into a chemical so we can profit, even at the expense of the planet and the people. We are making it a plastic world.

Why don’t we go back to Mother Nature and save the people and the planet? Be kind to your body and the planet this year!

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

 

Did anyone else notice after the BPA scare that most everything in the grocery store is changing over to plastic?

Plastic is proven to go into the food when heated so are we eating plastic ketchup, mustard and bbq sauce? Why not, it is full of chemicals, preservatives, Aspartame, MSG and genetically modified sugars from GMO beet sugar anyways, why
not add plastic to it?

Is there any real unadulterer food left? It is getting harder to find and even then you might not be eating what you think. Is there any wonder why there is illnesses that we cannot cure? Then we slap it with more chemical called drugs to fix the problem.

DEATH BY ALLOPATHY

I came across this website I wanted to include, there is a pleathora of information.

http://www.whale.to/a/dean.html

DEATH BY ALLOPATHY

[Allopathy is the leading cause of death, 783,936 1 every year in the USA alone.  Then add on the millions killed or lives shortened by chemotherapy & radiation, while Allopathy Inc has suppressed dozens of cancer cures for over 100 years (see: The Cancer Conspiracy).  Most Alzheimer victims can be laid at the doors of Allopathy Inc, also Heart disease, Cot death, AIDSSmallpox vaccination killed millions over the centuries. Allopathy Inc also covertly condones Junk Food, and poisons such as Aspartame & Fluoridation. ]

I am dying with the help of too many physicians.—Alexander the Great

http://www.whale.to/a/dean.html

 

I came across this web page that claims all the negative you hear about aspartame is all rumors:
http://www.aspartame.net/Internet_rumors.asp
I did some research to find exactly where this information is coming from and here it is:

General Company Information

Company Name : Ajinomoto Food Ingredients LLC
Headquarters : 8430 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., Suite 635, Chicago, IL 60631
Phone : (773)714-1436

Ajinomoto’s operations have long been characterized by a global perspective, and encompass manufacturing and marketing facilities in 20 countries. In the year ending March 2009, turnover was $14.2 billion.

So Ajinomoto makes –  MSG products and Aspartame products. Do you see the deceit? Further research from their website shows how wide spread they are into most every walk of our lives: http://www.ajiusa.com/


Seasoning and sauces
Pharmaceuticals and biotech
Food flavor and ingredients
Poultry and Swine feed
Energy drinks and powders
Dietary supplements
Cosmetic Ingredients
Sweeteners

Can you see how they have spread their chemicals from food to prescriptions, into the animal feed that we eat and into our beverages as well as our cosmetics. That pretty well covers everything doesn’t it?

Ajinomoto – From the Beginning
The only U.S. manufacturer to produce cGMP, pharmaceutical-grade amino acids, Ajinomoto AminoScience LLC has the capacity and experience to fulfill all your amino acid needs – from initial research to manufacturing, blending and pulverization, warehousing, custom labeling and packaging, and analytical and technical support.

http://www.ajiaminoscience.com/industries/biopharma.aspx

All 20 amino acids are cGMP manufactured, with ultralow endotoxins and purity levels that exceed USP and EP standards. Here are some products they make listed below. Look at the chemical cocktail, endotoxins, nucleotides to lock the flavour in, Monosodium Glutamate, Monopotassium Glutamate, nucleotides; Disodium 5’ Inosinate (IMP), Disodium 5’ Guanlyate (GMP) and I+G, a 50/50 mixture of IMP and GMP?? Man, what happened to our food??? Do you recognize the ingredients???? I am sticking with nature. It sounds like the chemical cocktail called Lupron they gave me, makes me cringe.

Are you a little overwhelmed by the chemical cocktail that has become a part of our diet and personal
care?

Now I went into their product information Technical book

http://www.aji-aspartame.com/Products/pdf/Ajinomoto_technical_booklet.pdf
Digested Naturally

Aspartame is a dipeptide composed of two amino acids: Laspartic acid and L-phenylalanine. Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid. These constituents are found in many common foods and are metabolized by the human body in exactly the same way as they would be if they came from meat, cheese, fish, vegetables or fruit. When aspartame is consumed, it breaks down into aspartic acid, phenylalanine and a small amount of methanol, identical to that found naturally in pectin-containing food products. The rest of the diet provides much greater quantities of these components than does aspartame. Aspartic acid ( 40%) Phenylalanine ( 50%) Methanol ( 10%) The confidence that consumers and food and drink manufacturers can have in aspartame is reflected in its high Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI). The ADI represents the safe daily consumption level of an ingredient over a person’s lifetime and is expressed in milligrams per kilogram of body weight. In the United States, the FDA has assigned aspartame an ADI of 50mg/kg. In the European Union, the ADI has been set at 40 mg/kg. The FDA has approved aspartame as a “General Purpose Sweetener” allowing it to be used in virtually any food application. In addition, the FDA has given aspartame “Good Manufacturing Practice” (GMP) status which means that there are no upper limits for the use of aspartame in individual product categories. In the United States, FDA requirements state that products formulated with aspartame must be labelled “Phenylketonurics: Contains Phenylalanine.” Aspartame has a much higher acceptable daily intake than sucralose, acesulfame-K or saccharin. This remains true when potency is taken into account.

Some history on Ajinomoto Food Ingredients LLC from Wikipedia I dug up:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajinomoto#Lysine_price-fixing_conspiracy

Controversy

In early 2001, Ajinomoto was involved in a scandal in majority-Muslim Indonesia when it emerged that a pork-based enzyme had been used in its production of MSG. Lysine price-fixing conspiracy

Ajinomoto was a member of the Lysine price fixing cartel in the mid-1990s. Along with Kyowa Hakko Kogyo, and Sewon America Inc., Ajinomoto settled with the United States Department of Justice Antitrust Division in September 1996. Each firm and one executive from each pleaded guilty as part of a plea bargain to aid in further investigation. Their cooperation led to ADM settling charges with the US Government in October 1996 for $100 million, a record antitrust fine at the time. The cartel had been able to raise Lysine prices 70% within their first nine months of cooperation. Lawsuit against supermarket chain Asda

In 2008, Ajinomoto sued British supermarket chain Asda, part of Wal-Mart, for a malicious falsehood action concerning its aspartame product when the chemical was listed as excluded from the chains product line along with other “nasties”. In July 2009, a British court found in favour of Asda. In June 2010, an appeal court reversed the decision, allowing Ajinomoto to pursue a case against Asda to protect aspartame’s reputation. Asda said that it will continue to use the term “no nasties” on its own-label products.
[edit] Trademarks and personnel

AJI-NO-MOTO is registered as a trademark in Indonesia and Thailand.

Ajinomoto’s chairman, Kunio Egashira, died on April 7, 2008.[11] He had been chairman of the company since June 2005.[11] Egashira had previously served as the company’s president from June 1997.[11]
[edit] Subsidiaries

* Ajinomoto USA, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ajinomoto Co., Inc. Includes Ajinomoto AminoScience LLC that provides amino acid products and services to a number of manufacturing and research industries.[12]

* In the UK, it is produced through Britannia Pharmaceuticals Limited, a UK-based subsidiary.[citation needed]

* On January 13, 2006, the company bought the cooking sauce and condiments manufacturer Amoy Food Limited previously owned by French dairy product company Danone.

* Ajinomoto Food Ingredients LLC produces Aspartame.[13]

* Calpis

* OmniChem NaturalSpecialities is specializing in the tannin production[14].

What I see is we have made our pharmaceuticals a part of every walk of life. We bath in it, we wear it, inhale it, eat it, smoke it, slather it on, ingest it or are inoculated with it. Wonder why there are so many illnesses in today’s society? HMMMMMM

Aspartame – the silent killer

THE FDA has admitted that only approximately 1% of people know how to, or do, file complaints with them. Under a recent Freedom of Information order the FDA admitted that aspartame accounted for over 75% of complaints filed. They claimed that over 8000 were filed, but they keep changing their bookkeeping to keep the numbers low. The fact that 8000 reports were received indicates that there must have been over 800,000 people adversely affected at the very least.
