Sugar makes me quite ill as does Splenda.  There is a new product on the market called PureVia which is made from the sweetest part of the stevia leaf.  Has anyone tried this product and what were your results?
Presently on: 600 mg. Remicade every 5 weeks
                   Venofer infusion every 5 weeks
                   B12 every 5 weeks              
                   15 mg. Methotrexate/injection weekly
                   12 Asacol daily
                   10 mg. Celexa daily
                   Zofran as needed

I have used problem. I have also used Truvia, from the Stevia plant. No problem. Stevia is not an artificial sweetener, but an herb plant. I have not tried PureVia, but I'm assuming it would be safe, as well. You are wise in avoiding all artificial sweeteners.

I use stevia, it's great, no calories, definitely better than refined sugar for your health, a tiny bit goes a long way.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
