We talk about
stevia from time to time on this board. Seems work for some - not for others.
Here is a good thread about
it (there are many others too):www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30&m=3808716
Here was our experience (copied from above thread). We noticed nothing from using stevia for several weeks (nothing good or bad). Here is the copy:
Having said that, we did several weeks of stevia per recommended by our functional medicine LLMD. None of us saw any effect from it (good or bad). We stopped using it. (I use the tincture sometimes to take the edge off the bad taste of all of my combined tinctures.) I talked to my doctor about
his experience, and he says that he sees positive results from people. I believe him. I mean - why would he lie? He certainly isn't going to make money off a $10 bottle of stevia over time compared to the other treatments. (I trust him and don't believe he would lie anyways.)
I honestly respect doctors who think outside the box and are willing to try things that are low-risk because this disease(s) are very complicated to treat. I am grateful that my doctor is
open minded. Unfortunately, stevia did not help us (doesn't mean it couldn't help others though). On to the next idea for us, as always...
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but much better lately!
Kid#2: Very sick now despite being treated for years, very bad year
Kid#3: Doing great, minor relapse, but great again (ironically had least and shortest treatment)!
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids) - not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue, kidney, heart, and yeast issues
