Combat Seasonal Allergies with Nutrition

The rate of seasonal allergies is on the rise. Luckily, there are several dietary strategies that can alleviate or ameliorate symptoms.

Omega-3s with AIMega

Inflammation occurs when the immune system reacts to injury, illness or irritant. An allergy is often nothing more than an inflammatory overreaction to a perceived threat: a particle of dust, pollen. Omega-3 fatty acids have been found to help soothe inflammation in people with either allergies or asthma.

Probiotics with FloraFood

Preliminary research sug­gests that probiotics might aid seasonal allergy suffers. Beneficial gut bacteria help to regulate the immune system’s response to allergens, re­lieving symptoms.

Green Tea Extract with Proancynol 2000

Your aunt may have been right when she told you to drink green tea for hay fever. Researchers in Japan found that green tea contains a compound (EGCG) that blocks certain allergic responses. Plus, green tea brims with antioxidants.

Quercetin with LeafGreens and CoCoa LeafGreens

Quercetin is a pow­er­ful plant flavonoid. In test tube studies, quercetin stopped im­mune cells from releasing allergy-causing histamines. It also has antioxidant proper­ties that can reduce inflammation.

Vitamin C in BarleyLife Xtra and Peak Endurance

Most often used to prevent the common cold, Vitamin C also has antihistamine properties. Several studies have shown that vitamin C might reduce allergy symptoms as well.

Nutritional Strategies for Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a common tick-borne illness that affects around 300,000 individuals every year. It causes severe pain, swelling in the joints, arthritis, rashes and worse. If detected early, Lyme disease can be treated and abolished, but many will suffer for months on end with some developing post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (also known as chronic Lyme disease or PTLDS).

Scientists believe that PTLDS may be caused by residual tissue damage and chronic inflammation. Dietary factors can ease or increase inflammation. Sugars, gluten and dairy will fan the fires of inflammation, but there are several dietary approaches that will diminish it.

Good fats, the kind found in fish, flaxseed and olive oil are well-known and stalwart inflammation fighters. Look for those fats in AIMega and CellSparc 360.

Fruits and vege­­tables pro­vide in­flam­­mation-fighting antioxidants, and there might be no better source of plant-based an­ti­oxidants than those found in BarleyLife or BarleyLife Xtra.

CoCoa LeafGreens and Leaf­Greens con­tain quercetin, a substance that may assist with Lyme-related bladder issues, allergic reac­tions and pain.
Finally, probiotics such as FloraFood have been recommended for leaky gut issues associated with PTLDS.

I was having pain in my hips, knees, shoulders, jaw as well as severe headaches. At times the headaches were unbearable. Within a year, it became more difficult to do household tasks. I was praying every day that God would help me.

A family friend heard of my condition and brought me BarleyLife. After three days of taking it, I was up cleaning the house. When my husband came home from work, I was doing dishes. He was surprised that I was up and feeling so much better. He said, ‘That stuff works, keep taking it.’ So I did.

Later, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and was put on a 90-day plan. I kept up with the AIM products and my health and energy began improving every day. I was no longer experiencing those horrible headaches and the pain in my joints was reduced.

The AIM Companies — Our MLM Business

 

Shared by Rita and Eno Vandertil, AIM Star Sapphire Directors

In January 2002, we started our first jar of BarleyLife and Herbal Fiberblend. I shared AIM with a few people, but I wasn’t interested in building a business because I didn’t think I knew enough or that anyone would listen to me.

At a Women’s Aglow meeting in October 2004, two ladies told me that there would be “suddenlies” in my life, maybe in business. The next spring the Lord brought Ken Campbell (AIM Director) into my life. His miraculous recovery from leukemia and prostate cancer gave me a passion to share the AIM products.

I began attending AIM meetings to learn more about the products and improve my own health. This made me realize the importance of offering meetings, so I have helped to organize many in our area.

It has been such a blessing for Eno and me to attend many AIM Celebrations.

When planning meetings, I do an email blast; however, I still like to phone my Members personally to invite them. It gives me an opportunity to catch up on what is going on in their lives, and I find that people still like that personal invitation. Even if the member does not attend the meeting, I have been able to connect with them. The key is FOLLOW-UP, FOLLOW-UP,  FOLLOW-UP, especially after the meeting is over to see if they need help in any way.

It has been such a blessing for Eno and me to attend many AIM Celebrations. I won a prize to go to San Antonio in 2006. Eno thought I should go by myself, but later decided he would join me. We enjoyed it so much that Eno told me to work hard to be able to participate every year. We have been able to see many lovely places and meet wonderful people who have become dear friends.

We are very thankful for the integrity of The AIM Companies™ and for the help and encouragement we receive from them and from our upline. I enjoy being part of the AIM Prayer Team and continue to pray for The AIM Companies to excel in every area and to be able to provide the best products on the market!

Lycopene Shows Promise as a Fat Fighter

Veggie_D-capsules

For those of you looking to lose some weight in the New Year, hope comes from Taiwan in the form on a tomato.  A small study published in the Nutrition journal found that people who drank a (280 ml/) daily glass of tomato juice had smaller waistlines. Taiwanese researchers attributed the reduction to the 32.5 mg of lycopene in every glass. According to the findings, lycopene increases adiponectin levels–a hormone released by fat cells that helps regulate insulin sensitivity and energy–by 25%.  In addition to a smaller waistlines, common markers of inflammation were also reduced. This is good news if you’re a tomato lover.

But if you’re not a big fan of tomato juice, AIM has four products that contain tomatoes and/or lycopene, and they have loads of other benefits as well.
