Physical pain can occur anywhere in your body. It may be the result of an injury, such as banging your knee or toe, straining your back to lift something, or tripping and falling. The resulting pain is the inflammatory response of your body to heal the damage. Even when the source is not so obvious it is usually inflammation that generates the pain you feel.
Inflammation signals that the body is trying to heal itself from external or internal injury by removing or neutralizing harmful materials, including bacteria, damaged cells, free radicals and viruses. However, long-term inflammation is not a healing thing; it is the root cause of most health problems, such as Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, heart disease and many types of cancer. Lifestyle—lack of exercise, exposure to environmental toxins, stress, etc.—contributes to chronic inflammation. Poor dietary choices play a huge role in internal inflammation that, over time, manifests itself as illness.
It is so easy to reach for a drug in response to pain for immediate relief without healing at the source of the problem. However, the most common over-the-counter and prescription drugs can have side effects and increase the risk of various conditions: perforated ulcers, gastrointestinal bleeding, acute liver failure or even heart attack1. It is an individual choice, and one that should not be taken lightly.
Fortunately, there are natural options available. Choosing the whole food in AIM BarleyLife® to internally bathe your body with anti-inflammatory greens is just one of the natural alternatives. How much you take depends on the severity of your condition, so you can take more than one spoonful. BarleyLife is concentrated, whole food, so instead of synthetic chemicals, it gives your body naturally balanced vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, and chlorophyll—the green cleanser and healer.
If you have painful joints, supplement with the pain-relieving ingredients in AIM Frame Essentials: glucosamine, boswellia resin, and methyl-sulfonyl-methane (MSM).
Getting to the source of your pain by using natural nutrients is the healthiest way to help your natural body to heal itself. Supplementing with AIM products is one of the best lifestyle choices a person can make. Ultimately, you determine the destiny of your health.
