Is It Time for Inner Spring Cleaning?

Shared by Members Toni Lund, Teresa Schumacher and Amanda Maradiaga

What has happened to the health of people in this great nation of ours? Many of today’s diseases have come about because of drastic changes in our environment, food that is being chemically treated and food additives that are toxic to our systems. So we suffer from illnesses that never plagued mankind before.

The colon is at the root of these problems. A regular diet of refined carbohydrates and a lack of dietary fiber increases the transit time of bowel wastes and stimulates the production of putrefactive bacteria in the bowel. When the colon is impacted with sugar, hamburgers, French fries, etc., how can the body ever expect to assimilate any good nutrients? Such eating habits have contributed to our nation’s obesity epidemic. This is all the more reason to clean the impacted fecal matter from our colons and eat healthier food to maintain them.

“It’s like I always said,” commented Teresa Schumacher, Chairman’s Club Director and formulator of Herbal Fiberblend, “you would never wax a floor before sweeping and mopping it first.” You can’t absorb any good nutrients from the food you eat if you don’t clean out the colon first.

Pharmacy or Farmacy?

When most people get sick, they turn to the “pharmacy” for their ailments. Yet our ancestors turned to the “farmacy”—wholesome food and natural medicine.
Teresa Schumacher is 92 years old and doesn’t take any prescription medications. She continues to take BarleyLife, Herbal Fiberblend and Composure daily. With a combination of healthy eating and AIM products, she has managed to stay healthy. Teresa is still helping people and loves to hear from those she has helped over the years.

Cleansing the Colon

While we recommend maintaining a daily habit of keeping your bowels moving, we are often asked how often one should do a more intense cleanse, a “spring cleaning” of sorts. Remember, it’s easier to clean a colon that’s well maintained than to clean a colon that’s had a year of binging and gorging.

Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife and Composure along with Just Carrots, RediBeets and PrepZymes should be used on a daily basis to maintain good health. But as mentioned before, with all the chemicals and additives in our food, even a well-kept colon could use a good spring cleaning every three or six months, and annually.

Here are some of our favorite cleanses; complete details can be found in the books, Cleansing the Body and the Colon for a Happier and Healthier You and Candida the Slow Killer (available as Kindle Editions on amazon.com or contact the authors for hard copies).

Accelerated 3-Week Cleanse

This cleanse uses Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife, RediBeets and Composure. It also includes Cascara Sagrada (optional) usually found at your local health food store.

Gall Stone and Liver 3-Day Cleanse

This cleanse uses Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife, Composure and RediBeets.

Candida Control Program (3-Month Cleanse)

This cleanse uses Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife and Composure. Full details of this cleanse can be found in Candida the Slow Killer.

Parasite Cleanse Using Para 90

This cleanse is not in either book, but we have recommended it often to people. Take 3 Para 90 capsules per day for 30 days in conjunction with taking Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife and Composure twice daily. Take 1 Para 90 capsule with each dose of Herbal Fiberblend and then one capsule before bed.

As with any good cleanse, FloraFood is recommended to replenish friendly bacteria and maintain gut flora balance.

Herbal remedies are foreign to many people. It takes a little more convincing to help them understand the value of being responsible for their own health. If we take care of ourselves and not wait until we get sick, how much better off we will be? This is why the AIM products are so valuable.

I had terrible pains in my colon every time I had a bowel movement, they would last from 8 to 10 hours. I was unable to work and couldn’t afford to see a doctor. A friend of mine recommended Herbal Fiberblend. I took it that night and have been taking it faithfully for 12 years and have had no pain!   –Ken S.

I have been taking Herbal Fiberblend for 10 years. I notice a difference when I take it versus when I run out and can’t take it. With regular use, I notice no yeast infections; I rarely get the flu or a cold. Although I was diagnosed with IBS, I have regular bowel movements and the gas and bloating I experienced are gone.

Managing Inflammation Improved My Life

Shared by Jan Kusch, AIM Preferred Member

Jan Kusch headshotMy journey with AIM began in February 2012, when I had been diagnosed with chronic dermatomyositis, a rare auto­immune disease that attacks the muscle and skin, resulting in weak muscles and irritated skin condition on my hands, neck, chest, scalp, face and eyelids.

Strangers would walk up to me and ask if I had shingles. My arm and leg muscles hurt so badly, I could hardly endure driving the car or using the computer keyboard, plus walking was becoming a challenge.

My doctor kept prescribing more medications, and I seemed to be getting worse. At the same time, my mother was at the end stages of Alzheimer’s, my only son was serving as an army lieutenant in the northern mountains of Afghanistan and my health insurance business was a challenge to maintain due to Obamacare.

Then, two things happened that turned my life around. Rosie Reichert, a dear friend who is an AIM Director, called to invite me to a meeting to learn about AIM products. I immediately placed an order. Simultaneously, I was contacted by the doctor’s office. I had been on a waiting list to become a new patient. Many prayers were answered at the same time!

I told my new doctor about the AIM products I had started taking, and she was on board for me to use them. She immediately sent me to physical therapy, changed my diet to gluten-free and reduced my medications. It took about one year to go from weekly injections of methotrexate—a drug used to treat certain types of cancer, psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis—to none.

My disease is all about managing inflammation. The AIM products I use daily are BarleyLife juice powder and capsules, AIMega, Composure, RediBeets, Peak Endurance, Proancynol 2000 and FloraFood as well as Mag-nificence spray and Herbal Fiberblend as needed. I credit these products with improving my quality of life. I was even able to travel with my son to Europe in the fall of 2016 for two weeks, visiting England, France and Ireland.

I am thankful for the support and quality products that The AIM Companies™ has provided. I am excited to share my story and encourage you to give AIM a try.

A Case for Supplements

First of all, this is not about a container for your supplements. It’s about making a case for supplements. Wait a minute: now it sounds like a blog about making your own supplement case. And that would just be wrong, so let’s try another paragraph of specifics.

The use of supplements has been debated over several decades with negative and positive opinions aplenty. The words “waste of money” and even “possibly harmful” are the bottom line for the naysayers. But they missed the key factors and the main point in the case for supplements.

Key Factors

All supplements are not created equal, and it is simple as ABC. If a health product does not contain:

  1. High-quality, NATURAL ingredients
  2. Actual ingredient(s) printed on the label
  3. Designated ingredient amounts printed on the label

Then the purchaser has been HAD. The supplement is not going to do much of what it purports to do for the consumer. And there are so many poor quality products (often used in the case against supplements) in the marketplace.

Main Point

The words “food supplement” mean “a substance designed to make up for a deficiency in one’s diet” (Collins English Dictionary). That is the main point of taking supplements: to make up for a deficiency. Not getting enough nutrition in the food you eat is the reason why supplementation makes so much sense.

Nutritional Deficiencies

The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans reports that the average intake of some essential nutrients, such as potassium, dietary fiber, calcium and vitamin D, is so low as to be a public health concern. Low intakes of other essential nutrients are primarily due to unhealthy food choices.

What if you eat well? Well, research confirms that today’s food crops contain lower amounts of essential nutrients than those grown several decades ago. This is apparently due to soil depletion: “Modern intensive agricultural methods have stripped increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows” (scientificamerican.com).

The Answer

So what do you do? Supplement your nutritional intake with high quality, natural health products: brand name AIM! With an extensive line of “Nutrition that Works!”, The AIM Companies™ has been a tried and true go-to source of supplemental nutrients since 1982.

For example, those in the know know the positive difference the Garden Trio can make to a person’s health. BarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets make up this nutritionally rich threesome that collectively captures all that is beneficial in barley grass, carrots and beets in concentrated powders that are easily assimilated and used by the body. Correcting a nutrient deficiency is as easy as adding the Garden Trio to water, mixing and drinking. A daily drink of this combo is supplemental perfection.

And there are so many more AIM natural health products to explore that make a “convincing” case for supplements. See for yourself by visiting the online product store.

The World Is Big Enough for Two AIM Beet Products

The world really is big enough for two beet products made by The AIM Companies™. Red Rush and RediBeets are different enough that each one can inhabit its own niche without much overlap. On a daily basis, you could drink both products. The only side effect would be increased nutrition and nitric oxide levels, lower blood pressure, and more trips to the bathroom. However, let’s say, for the sake of argument, that you could only choose one. Which one should you choose? And why?

No one can answer that question but you. Each product has its own set of strengths and applications that can be tailored to meet specific needs. You first have to decide what your needs are and then choose which beet drink best suits them.

Nitric Oxide: If you want to choose a beet drink for the sole purpose of replenishing your nitric oxide levels, then Red Rush is your go-to drink. Red Rush’s specialty is the high amount of vegetable nitrate that gets converted into nitric oxide. (NO) However, if you’re not NO deficient and simply want to maintain your current NO levels, then drinking RediBeets will work just fine. Another suggestion for the athletes out there is to drink Red Rush on heavy training days and before events, but supplement RediBeets during your off days. You’ll be able to keep your nitric oxide levels up even when you don’t need the full boost Red Rush provides.

Price: It takes seven servings of RediBeets to equal the nitrate found in Red Rush, but seven servings of RediBeets is still slightly cheaper than one Red Rush. If you’re young or someone older who eats arugula daily and is teeming with nitric oxide and living on a budget, then you may not need Red Rush. RediBeets is an affordable way for a non-athlete to supplement with beets.

Taste: If you can’t stand the way beets taste, then try Red Rush for a different flavor.

Diet: If you’re trying to lose weight, then one serving of RediBeets has only fifteen calories. Red Rush packs one hundred.

Convenience: If you’re an athlete on the go, then Red Rush can provide you with the nitric oxide boost you need to naturally enhance performance. No need for measuring. No need to carry spoons or cups. No need to find a water source. Just open, drink and enjoy.

Enzymes: Red Rush is a juice that has been heated during processing and, therefore, does not contain the enzymes that RediBeets does. If you’re an enzyme enjoyer, RediBeets is your beverage.

The best thing to do is to test yourself with the Berkeley Nitric Oxide Test strips and see where you’re at. If your NO levels are depleted, Red Rush can quickly boost them. If you’re nitric oxide levels are at an acceptable level, then RediBeets is a cost-effective way to maintain. Red Rush is for depleted nitric oxide levels, high blood pressure, and feats of athleticism. RediBeets is for daily maintenance, enzymatic nutrition, and calorie-restrictive diets. It’s not RediBeets vs. Red Rush. It’s which beet product serves your specific needs best.

Can’t Be Beet

Eating beets has always been considered a healthy dietary factor. These days, it seems that there’s a lot of information floating around out there in regard to the health benefits of beet juice. Here are some the things that have been written about this juice:

  • Beet juice provides incredible cardiovascular benefits that improve active function
  • Benefits of beet juice exceed expectations
  • Daily intake of beet juice promotes brain health in older adults
  • Beet juice lowers blood pressure
  • Beet juice boosts athletic performance by up to 16 percent

In 2014, AIM introduced Red Rush, a beet juice concentrate that delivers a nitric oxide boost, and twenty years ago AIM introduced the beet juice powder of RediBeets, so in a way, AIM has been ahead of its time and deserves its place on top of the nutritional ladder.

The concentrated nutrition from beet juice powder has numerous health benefits. Beet nutrients, such as betaine, help to cleanse your liver, the hard-working organ that filters and neutralizes any toxins that enter your body.

For your cardiovascular health, researchers have determined that along with improving circulation and lowering blood pressure, beet juice helps you do physical activities with less effort by allowing your muscles to function with smaller amounts of oxygen. No matter what your age, you won’t be as breathless when physically active if you drink beet juice.

The word is out. Beets are in. For your overall health, make RediBeets a part of your nutritional intake. And boost your nitric oxide levels even more with Red Rush. Whatever you can do to ensure your body gets an optimal amount of necessary nutrients on a daily basis will help to maintain good health and prevent ailments.

RediBeets Being Tested in Clinical Trials

Clare Zamzow, PhD candidate at Boise State University in Boise, Idaho, is using AIM’s RediBeets in an upcoming clinical trial at the college’s Human Performance Lab. The trial will test the effects of dietary nitrate on trained athletes during wingate trials.

A wingate trial, for those unfamiliar, is similar to riding a stationary bicycle. The experience, however, is much, much different. Prior to the test, the wingate is adjusted to a rider’s body weight. The participant hops on the apparatus and pedals, warming up for thirty seconds. At that point, the test subject is asked to pedal as hard and as fast as he or she can, but then the resistance—which is based on body weight—kicks in. It suddenly feels like you’re running through thick mud, each revolution of the pedal becoming slower and more cumbersome. A thirty-second trial becomes an eternity, a sixty-second trial, a nightmare.

Although the test is unpleasant for the participants, it’s a great way to measure maximum endurance and power output in a short amount of time. Each participant in the study is asked to participate twice in this study, once after drinking RediBeets and once after using a placebo drink. Then at the end of the study, Zamzow will compare the two time trials and look for significant statistical patterns in the data. Participants are also asked to test their dietary nitrate levels with Berkeley Test® Strips.

The AIM Companies™ has provided the RediBeets to the clinical trial. We are excited by the prospect of having our product used in advancement of science. The majority of studies on beet juice have shown positive results, i.e., beet juice improves athletic performance.

One other item of note: Red Rush was disallowed due to the concern that Red Rush’s great-tasting cherries and lemons could somehow interfere with the data collection. However, the results will still be applicable to Red Rush.

Testimonials should not be construed as representing results that everyone can achieve.
