History often repeats itself when it comes to family generations. AIM Preferred Member Paul Eilers of Conway, Arkansas, experienced this when both his mother’s father and his own father died of cancer. Paul recognized unhealthy lifestyle choices made while he was growing up, so he made a mental note to himself not to make the same mistakes when he had children of his own.
As a sports enthusiast throughout his education leading to the college years, Paul believed that what you put into your body has an enormous effect on your health. “Too many people rely on doctors, so they don’t take responsibility for their own health,” Paul surmised, deciding to be his primary health care practitioner even though he believes in doctors.
After going through the seemingly endless health information available online, Paul came across AIM in 1999. For fifteen years now, he and his wife, Laura, have been Members of the company that provides Nutrition That Works!
Their health has benefited from products such as AIM BarleyLife® and AIM BarleyLife® Xtra. As a result, their seven-year-old son, Brady, has enjoyed better health ever since his entrance into the world.
Seven years into their marriage, Paul and Laura discovered they were pregnant. Laura immediately upped her intake of BarleyLife, taking up to twenty-one capsules daily in three servings.
When Brady was born, he had a number of health issues and would never breast feed. Adding BarleyLife Xtra to a baby bottle full of breast milk, Paul and Laura gave their child supplemental nutrition that has helped keep Brady a healthy young boy. Having had AIM nutrition while still in the womb and since infancy, Brady still loves drinking his BarleyLife Xtra every day. He also insists on going to bed with a sippy cup of it mixed with mostly water and some apple and grape juice. It’s his security blanket.
This habit is a nutritional blessing since Brady is a picky eater, just as his father was as a child. This led Paul to name his MyAIMStore www.healthypickyeater.com. “I market a product for parents who have kids that don’t eat enough fruit and vegetables,” Paul stated. “BarleyLife Xtra will offset this by giving them real food, real nutrition. Everybody’s taught that they should eat vegetables and fruit. I say here’s BarleyLife Xtra with a wealth of fruit and vegetable nutrition at about 50 cents a serving.”
As a picky eater, Brady doesn’t always eat enough, but thanks to BarleyLife Xtra, his weight is normal for a boy his age. Besides, their doctor had once told them that he had never seen a child like Brady starve himself to death. “We did not have to take him to the doctor this past winter. No medicine. No staying home from school,” Paul explained. “Brady doesn’t get sick very often.”
Paul knows that many parents believe that it is normal for their children to get sick during the winter and to have to regularly see doctors. These same parents often think that nutrition doesn’t matter, that fast food is fine. He tries to keep in mind that different things work for different people, so Paul doesn’t try to convince people with different beliefs even though he found out what works for him and his family. This leaves the door open for them to contact him when health problems do arise. Because Brady started taking BarleyLife Xtra from the time he was born, there was less resistance as he got older. It’s a healthy lesson that Paul shares with parents willing to listen for the benefit of their own children.
Paul sets a good fatherly example by regularly taking AIM nutrition that also includes AIM Herbal Fiberblend®, AIM Peak Endurance™, AIMega®, and AIM ProPeas™—just to name a few. It would seem that he kept his word to not make the same nutritional mistakes he witnessed while growing up. It’s a simple step any dad can take to prevent or change an unhealthy family history.
