Mission Possible World Health International
Dr. Betty Martini

Dr. Betty Martini is the founder of the worldwide volunteer force, Mission Possible World Health International, which is committed to removing the deadly chemical aspartame from our food. Out of 10,000 consumer complaints, the FDA has compiled a list of 92 symptoms of “Aspartame Disease,” including death. That symptom list is available from the FDA through the Freedom of Information Act. Betty began Mission Possible International in 1993.Thousands of Americans are addicted to this substance which breaks down into methyl alcohol, formaldehyde, formic acid (ant sting venom) and a long list of other poisons including diketopiperazine, a brain tumor agent. Brain tumors, lupus, MS, seizures, damaged infants and immeasurable damage to human DNA that desolates future generations, are the curses of aspartame. “Worst of all,” Dr. Martini says, “It’s not a diet product. Aspartame defeats the brain’s ability to detect serotonin so [people] crave carbohydrates. And because of the damage to the hypothalamus some consumers suddenly drop dead. This may be associated with recent sudden death of athletes.” An award winning website called by David Rietz offers a river of aspartame facts containing much of Dr. Martini’s work. On this site you‘ll also find Dr. Blaylock’s paper entitled “Aspartame, MSG and Other Excitotoxins and the Hypothalamus.”In l984 Dr. H. J. Roberts, M.D., was recognized by the national medical publication “Practice 84,” as the best doctor in the United States. He recently published a 1,000 page medical text: “Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic”—the most comprehensive study in the world on aspartame. He dedicated this work to Dr. Martini who herself, has collected thousands of case histories on the damage done by aspartame. Martini is considered an international authority on this subject.Dr. Martini has three grown children, two sons and a daughter who is a missionary. Her husband, Don, is an ordained minister. They perform this work as an expression of the love of neighbor the Bible teaches, and have nothing to sell and no financial motivation. Betty’s work is pure charity which she explains with this quote: “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?” Proverbs 24:11Visit Betty at the National Health Federation website at

Doctor of Medical Dentistry
Dr. Edmund A. Sulkowski

Dr. Edmund Sulkowski is a driven leader in the dental/medical health field, earned his Doctor of Medical Dentistry Degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine.   Advocating Biological Dentistry and its holistic approach via television, radio and lecturing, he values his association with both the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine and the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.  Edmund is host of “Let’s Talk Healthy Pets”, a local cable TV/internet show diverse in topics but dedicated to a holistic approach for animal and human wellness.   Always an educator, he is a regular monthly guest on the radio health show “Sunny Spot” addressing body systems, health issues, and natural solutions. Asked once how he seems to be at such ease when lecturing or in front of a camera, he answered that after his involvement as an officer in student body government and then delivering the commencement speech, all hesitation and fears ceased. He went on to say when your only goal is to help and speak the truth as you know it, all other concerns are incidental and disappear.  As a published author of many articles in various industry magazines and newsletters, and as a recognized national lecturer on health and wellness, Edmund strives to educate promoting health awareness.  He was the Chief Operating Officer of Phoenix Nutritional Supplements Inc. and Healthy Pet Systems for 8 years also formulating Longevity Formula 37 and FlexR 8X Joint Health Formula. Being a formulator of nutritional supplements and a holistic nutritional consultant, Edmund has help educate many people including various celebrities.  Dr. Sulkowski is well rooted in health and education.  As a dental student, he worked on a  graduate periodontic research project and was a teaching assistant in Prostodontics . Upon graduation, he became an Associate Clinical Instructor in Operative Dentistry.  He has guest lectured in Universities on such topics as Facial Development and Oral Cancer.  His interest and post graduate studies include certifications from the Mid-America Orthodontic Society and the American Orthodontic Society as well as the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology.  Dr. Sulkowski practiced General Dentistry with his brother Dr. William Sulkowski D.M.D., was in private practice and later was with Allegheny Dental Orthodontic Practice. In addition he has appeared on various local TV and radio shows such as Lets Talk Dentistry, The Chat, KRLA Los Angeles and WKHB Pittsburgh. 

Edmund’s life changed abruptly with a disabling illness, loss of half of his small intestine and the inability to eat solid food.  As he says, “medicine saved my life but did not know how to keep me alive”, and after a month in the hospital was sent home under nurses’ care and given the suggestion to get his affairs in order.  This not only changed his life, it fostered a medical paradigm shift toward a natural holistic approach to health and wellness.  This life saving decision drove him into years of study and self experimentation with vitamins, minerals and healing herbs.  What followed was a dramatic improvement in health and then the desire to shout to the world that you too can improve your health, wellness, quality of life and overcome illness when treating the root cause not just the symptom. Edmund always speaks to the importance of a properly functioning thyroid and proper PH in the prevention and control of disease.  He often starts his lectures saying, “allopathic medicine certainly is with merit and can be life saving but wellness somehow has become the practice of Frankenstein Medicine, as we cut it, sew it, or suppress it.”  These experiences have lead Edmund on a completely different path in life.
