Healthy Bones and Joints

The hip bone’s connected to the thigh bone … by a joint. Bones and joints go hand in hand … or ball in socket to be more exact when it comes to hip and thigh bones or shoulders for that matter. The structure and performance of the skeletal frame and all of its movable parts is a work of natural art.

When the skeletal frame works, it gives you the freedom to move and be active. Otherwise, we might all be plants rooted in the earth, going nowhere. It can make you think about those who choose to be physically inactive. And sadly, some people have no choice in the matter.

If your skeletal frame is working, one of the best things you can do to keep it that way is to keep moving and stay active. Being too sedentary turns good bones and joints into an “if you don’t use it, you lose it” situation over time.

‘Osteo’ Conditions

The word “osteo” relates to bones, with its origin in the Greek language: osteon. The two most common health problems related to bones and joints are osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.

Osteoporosis means porous bones, which is caused by calcium loss, making bones more likely to break. Regular exercise helps to inhibit the rate of bone loss. Because exercise strengthens the skeletal frame, the risk of falling and breaking bones is reduced. The message remains “keep moving.”

Osteoarthritis might be translated as bone-joint inflammation. It’s a condition that results from the break down of cartilage (the cushion) between joints, causing pain, stiffness and swelling. Again, exercise is beneficial for the joints. A study published in 2009 in the Journal of Anatomy determined that “exercise has positive salutary benefits for joint tissues in addition to its other health benefits.”1

AIM Keeps Me In the Game

Shared by Blake Thompson, son of Craig and Kristi Thompson, AIM Directors

AIM products have been a part of my life from an early age. I have been taking BarleyLife daily for as long as I can remember.

Using AIM products daily has helped me live a healthy lifestyle, but AIM’s salubrious effects have been most prevalent in my athletic career.

I started playing lacrosse in grade 5, and by freshman year of high school, I knew I wanted to play lacrosse in college as well.

In my first year of high school, I began taking Proancynol 2000, Frame Essentials and Peak En­durance in addition to BarleyLife. Using these products has greatly improved my availability in lacrosse. Today, I play Division 2 lacrosse at North Greenville University in Tigerville, South Carolina.

Throughout my high school and current college lacrosse career, I have played or started in every single lacrosse game. During this period of time, there have been multiple occasions when I was either ill or injured to the point when I thought there was absolutely no chance I would be able to compete in the upcoming game. However, with the power of Proancynol 2000 for boosting the immune system and the recovering power of Frame Essentials for muscles and joints, I was always well enough to play come game time.

During games and workouts, Peak En­durance gives me the fuel to perform at a high level for the entire duration of physically demanding two-hour practices and workouts six days out of the week.

All in all, AIM products have helped me to not just compete at the collegiate level in athletics, but also to live a happy lifestyle where I never have to worry about my health inhibiting me from doing the activities I love to do.

Testimonials should not be construed as representing results everybody can achieve.

AIM Changed My Life

Shared by Sandy Berry, Group Builder in Tarlton, South Africa

In 2017, I listened to an AIM presentation from Royal Emerald Director Madaleine Helm that addressed a number of health issues. My own included osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and anemia along with hot flashes that disappeared only five days after I started taking BarleyLife and using Renewed Balance.

Shortly afterward, I found out that my seven-year-old daughter, Hayley, had
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Having her tested for food sensitivities revealed she had celiac disease as well. I put her on a variety of AIM products, including BarleyLife Xtra, CoCoa LeafGreens and FloraFood. As for changing her diet, I removed anything that contained gluten. For good measure, we are busy eliminating dairy as well.

Two months later, my twenty-six-year-old daughter, Tarryn, was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I gave her BarleyLife, Herbal Fiberblend, Frame Essentials and Peak Endurance as well as Renewed Balance. These products have helped her to
feel better.

As for Hayley, seven months of being on the AIM products has made a huge improvement in her well-being. I can almost say she is a different child. She’s not so aggressive anymore. And she falls asleep within fifteen minutes instead of the three hours it used to take. I really notice that her concentration is much better. Overall, Hayley is just a far more pleasant little girl. Giving her AIM products is of utmost importance to me because I believe she’s getting the best support available.

To share what AIM products mean to me and my family, I decided to study AIM’s online courses to learn more about them and how the company works. You cannot promote AIM products if you have no idea what they can do for you or how the body works. I graduated from the AIM Academy in April, so now I have a better understanding of how the body needs AIM nutrition to function optimally.

I hope that more people will educate themselves and help give other people the best possible health solutions. I will always try to increase my own knowledge so that I can give the best of myself to everyone I meet. If I can help just one person, I’ll feel I have accomplished my goal in life. This is why I now sell AIM products to all who want to better their health.

Thank you to Madaleine Helm and The AIM Companies™ for changing my life. I am truly blessed.

Healthy Aging: What a Concept!

It’s a fact of life that everyone gets older day by day. As the years go by, factors like genetics, lifestyle and nutrition can speed up or slow down the aging process. So what is the definition of healthy aging?

According to a 2006 report by the Swedish National Institute of Public Health, healthy aging is “the process of optimizing opportunities for physical, social and mental health to enable older people to take an active part in society without discrimination and to enjoy an independent and good quality of life.” It’s a good definition, especially the part about “optimizing opportunities.” AIM definitely offers that.

First, as an independent distributor of AIM products, you have the option of earning an income that grows in relation to the amount of time and effort you put into growing your business. These factors allow you to optimize the opportunity presented by the AIM Income Plan.

Second, the products you help to distribute optimize the opportunity to improve people’s health so that they can “enjoy an independent and good quality of life.”

Nutrient-Rich BarleyLife

If anyone wants to age healthily, taking BarleyLife daily can help. It’s a nutritional supplement that can be taken from childhood through senior adulthood. BarleyLife helps maintain well-being because barley grass provides a naturally rich source of nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that every cell in the body can use to help promote optimal health.

Anti-Aging Proancynol 2000

To protect the body from damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals, Proancynol 2000 delivers an additional wealth of antioxidants in an unparalleled formulation. Dr. Richard Cutler, the former director of the National Institute of Aging, stated that the amount of antioxidants in your body is directly proportional to how long you will live. Top up your antioxidant intake with Proancynol 2000.

Joint-Nourishing Frame Essentials

One of the most common pains of aging is felt in the joints. That’s where Frame Essentials can help make a difference. For relief of joint pain, Frame Essentials offers the anti-inflammatory effects of glucosamine, boswellia and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). You don’t have to have creaky, painful joints as you age. Give your frame the essentials for healthy joints: Frame Essentials.

There are many more products in the AIM lineup that promote healthy aging. Check out the product catalog for the entire list.

What’s at the Source of Your Pain?

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.

The Inflammatory Core of Arthritis

People suffering with arthritis have a great need to cool the inflammation associated with pain and stiffness. Arthritis is just one of many diseases with the suffix -itis, which indicates an inflammatory condition.

Osteoarthritis—the degeneration of joint cartilage and underlying bone—is the most common type. Although this chronic disease has been classified as non-inflammatory by the medical community, research published in 2013 shows inflammation plays a role in this debilitating disease that, in effect, can turn an affected joint into a chronic wound1. One of the article’s headings says it all:

Chronic, low-grade inflammation sets the stage for chronic disease

The AIM solution is ‘Nutrition that works’ at the source of joint pain, providing support that can reduce inflammation and help the body to repair cells.

Joint Relief with Frame Essentials

The synergistic effects of glucosamine, boswellia and MSM in Frame Essentials work wonders in relieving joint pain and providing nutrients to help soothe inflammation, relieve osteoarthritic pain and support joint health.

Inflammation Reduction with BarleyLife

By alkalinizing an acidic system, AIM BarleyLife® keeps disease-inducing inflammation at bay. The best action for preventing inflammation throughout the body is to take these nutrient-rich greens daily.

Cellular Overhaul with AIMega

The omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) in AIMega® provide the good fats required to build and maintain healthy cells on a daily basis. Two of the numerous benefits of omega-3 are reducing inflammation and helping to lower the risk of chronic diseases, such as arthritis, cancer and heart disease.

To get results, the body needs support on a daily basis. The positive impact of all three nutritional supplements working together can have a healing effect on a body ravaged by arthritis.

According to Dr. Michael Greger (NutritionFacts.org), “The best kept secret in medicine is that, given the right conditions, the body heals itself … the power of nutrition as medicine may be the best investment we can make.”

AIM has never kept any of this a secret.

Alex Frisk in the Net!

frisk

AIM nutrition powered AIM-sponsored Athlete Alex Frisk through academic and athletic demands at Red Deer College during the fall of 2016.

“The term was awesome! I found it easier to be awake all day in terms of energy,” Alex stated. “Even staying after class to study in the library after getting through a day of studying. Not taking naps at all. And the best grades I’ve gotten yet.”

Alex’s knee injury that she received while playing on a men’s roller hockey team in July 2016 hasn’t held her back on the ice. As one of three goalies on the Red Deer College Queens, Alex helped her team to reach first place in the league. Highlights of the fall include being in net for the first annual Pink in the Rink fundraiser in support of women’s cancer. “My parents were there to watch me play,” Alex said. And in the game that put her team in first place, Alex had a shutout, blocking twenty-three shots on net.

In April, Alex will participate in the trials for a spot on Team Canada’s roller hockey team. And in May, she is getting married, so 2017 is shaping up to be an incredible year for this talented young woman.
