Some may wonder who she was, or some may have read her book, "Aspartame: King of Toxins" https://www.amazon.com/Aspartame-King-Toxins-Reigh-Parker-Burch/dp/1530541654 No obituary was ever written when she died about a year ago. One published line told what day she died and her date of birth ,.. but who was Reigh Parker Burch!?
I met her years ago when I received beautiful flowers with a short note saying, "thank you for saving my life" - Reigh Parker Burch. Reigh was an aspartame victim. She had read our material and gotten off the poison wrecking her health, She wanted to play it forward and save others so became Mission Possible Minnesota. Reigh was a breath of fresh air. She devoted her life to helping others, no matter the need. She was always sending gifts to brighten your day whether it be some healthful tea or some type of healthy oil. In college she studied nutrition, the Bible and journalism. She was a researcher and always learning in an effort to help others. She was an extremely good writer.
One day her husband had a stroke and had to be admitted to a nursing home. She moved in with him. She didn't like the bad nutrition of the home and bought her own food. Reigh continued to write articles and inform the public aspartame is a chemical poison. It continually upset her they were trying to give her drugs with aspartame and had succeeded in causing her to have an aspartame seizure from it. They refused to allow her to go to an emergency room. When she refused a blood transfusion they held her down and gave it to her anyway.
Reigh never stopped writing: http://www.mpwhi.com/articles-r_parker_burch.htm She exposed what happens in a nursing home. While she wanted to leave they had to authorize where she went. She finally found a place for both she and her husband but he had another stroke and couldn't leave. The government was trying to take over her finances and was giving her a bad time. She called daily. While in the hospital someone finally managed to take over her finances and used her funds for things not authorized as hers,. She was fighting for her life and that of her husband. I asked about her children and her daughter she said had kept some manuscript. There was no one to help her in Minnesota.
With all the hardship she continued to write and warn others about aspartame so they would not endure the same nightmare. Then she asked me for material to write the book, "Aspartame: King of Toxins". I don't know whether aspartame was responsible for her husband's stroke, but I believe she could have lived a normal life and would still be alive today if she had never used this killing machine. It has destroyed lives all over this planet.
One day she called and said she was promised she could continue to write her books if she would enter a hospice. With a heavy heart I told her they would just drug her and take her life. Drugs that were pushed on her with aspartame had made her worse because of the chemical hypersensitization. Her last words to me were, "I think I'm dying, I'll leave you my book." She couldn't get free of the system, and aspartame had devastated her life.
After taking the case histories of aspartame victims for almost 3 decades you see what an aspartame exposed world can do as it destroys its victims. You weep with those weeping. You know millions are being slaughtered.
Reigh's cell phone never again answered. I had no address for her. Recently on Facebook I met a friend of hers, Lonny Lantz who told me she had died a year ago. He also told me some of the good things she did for him, He said he never could find an obituary on her, simply a one liner saying she had died. She deserves more.
As I look back over the years and think of how aspartame destroys lives, I remember others like Reigh. I remember Kelli Motluck who at the young age of 28 years cried "I want to live, I want to live" and subsequently died with a head full of aspartame brain tumors. I remember Dave Rietz who died of aspartame cancer who didn't want to die at age 55. His last words to me were "I'm sending you an aspartame victim who has lupus, please save her." I remember the doctors too, like the great Dr. H. J. Roberts whose last words were "please carry on my work on aspartame". It takes quite an effort to just avoid the mass poisoning as it creeps into unlabeled foods, and they add it to drugs.
So many victims died because of aspartame. Reigh Parker Burch should be remembered as a woman of courage, who while fighting for her own life, with her last breath tried to save others. What a generous heart she had. It's a devil's run world. We carry on and remember this proverb:
"Deliver those being taken away to death and those staggering to the slaughter. O may you hold them back. In case you should say 'Look! We did not know of this' will not He that is making an estimate of the hearts discern it and pay back to earthling man according to his activity?"
Keep on warning until we can get this poison banned.
