In the movie, Contagion, Elliot Gould’s character provides a dismissive view of blogs when he says, “Blogging is not writing. It’s graffiti with punctuation.”
Here at the BarleyLife Blog, it is hoped that the words that have appeared here over the years have moved beyond this negative perspective of unasked for spray-painted designs and have been punctuated by some wishfully interesting articles and useful information. This has always been the goal.
The thing about blogs is that they have a short shelf life. Blogs are custom built in the internet age of instant information and on to the next thing. Unlike graffiti, not a lot of blogs stick to anybody’s wall. It’s a case of read and move on.
That’s why this blog is going to be a little different. It’s going to be a trip down the memory lane of BarleyLife blogs, which could be seen as AIM blowing its own blog horn or simply as an easy way to refocus on some of the good stuff that may have gotten away.
The BarleyLife Blog Past
Personal Successes and Healthy Cells
Right off the bat, the best way to go on about the benefits of BarleyLife is to hear from some of the many people who have been helped. Here are some personal “Reflections on BarleyLife.”
The Healthy Cell Concept™ has always been front and center in the AIM belief system because healthy cells are the goal of a healthy lifestyle that includes AIM Nutrition that works! The blog “Healthy Cells” revisits this concept
Behind the Curtain and Improvements
It’s always interesting to have an idea of what goes into making high-quality supplements, so have a look “Behind the Scenes at AIM.”
Through the years of AIM’s existence, improvements are always aimed for however naturally possible. Here’s a blog example in “BarleyLife Now with More Chlorophyll.”
Drinks Are on Us
Going back to December 2014 adds a little fizz for a blog from the past. With the “5 Reasons to Quit Drinking Soda” there’s lots of evidence to avoid drinking these intentionally pleasant, fizzy, sugar-filled beverages that just aren’t good for you.
Sport drinks continue to be marketed, but none match AIM Peak Endurance. And “5 Reasons Why Peak Endurance Is Better Than Regular Sports Drinks” from February 2015 explains it all. (By the way, an improvement to Peak Endurance provides 200 mg of ATP per serving.)
What are the essential fats that every body needs daily? The answer lies in “Who Needs Fatty Acids?”
The essentials of understanding and combating joint issues are addressed in “The Essentials of Frame Essentials.” Each ingredient is examined for its beneficial properties that promote healthy joints.
People have a lot of questions about natural health products, and AIM Members are no exception as seen in this Q & A blog.
One question that keeps being asked is an organic one, so a blog was written to answer “The Organic Question.”
Let’s Make It Personal
Along with questions, people have many stories about how they became AIM Members. Here’s one of those tales that became a blog.
As previously mentioned, a blog of words only goes so far, and it continues to be true that “Actions Speak Louder than Words” even though it’s in a blog.
Looking at and into Supplements
The supplemental choices available also require a question as to how natural they actually are, and AIM gets to the heart of the matter in “Supplements . . . Natural or Synthetic?”
Not everyone agrees that supplements are beneficial. Opinions on both sides of the argument have been going on for years. AIM decided that it was a good time for a blog about making a case for supplements.
The medical community is slowly but surely wrapping its mind around the vital importance of nutrition, especially regarding a diet that reduces meat intake. Some of the doctors at the forefront of this movement in the right direction are revealed in the “Going Plant-Based” blog.
Here’s a suggestion from Dr. Michael Greger that we recommend you try only at home, “Testing Your pH with Purple Cabbage” or you can use the less colorful but effective AIM pH test strips (blog coming soon , , , or not).
Healthy or Not?
The subject of wheat grew exponentially when a heart doctor associated its intake with growing bellies. Borrowing from Shakespeare once again, “To Wheat or Not to Wheat” that is the question.
Some people consider sleep to be a waste of time, trying to snooze as little as possible to get the most out of their daily hours. Hmm . . . probably of case of “You Snooze You Lose” syndrome . . . .worth blogging about no less.
Of course, there’s more graffiti to choose from but the final link in this blog is to the most recent one with the archive to the side. Thanks for reading up to this point. Now move on.
