Men on the mend: Top health concerns for the men you love If father knows best, then he must certainly know about AIM products. Men are under siege from a variety of dastardly health concerns including heart disease, high blood pressure, and prostate cancer. There is hope in wholefood nutrition. Women outlive men on average by five to 10 years, in part because of the many different diseases plaguing men. It doesn’t have to be that way. Eating right and living well are keys to a healthier dad, husband, grandpa, and son. The following are five of man’s toughest obstacles along with an AIM ally to lend a helping hand.

Prostate health The most common form of cancer for all men in the United States, prostate cancer has been on a slow but steady decline since 2000 thanks to raised awareness and an increased health focus. One of the most powerful parts of the new health focus is saw palmetto – a fruit extract that reduces occurrences of benign prostate hyperplasia, which ultimately leads to cancer. In 2008, AIM reintroduced AIM ReAssure® as ReAssure SP, featuring saw palmetto berry extract as the main ingredient. The saw palmetto suppresses testosterone conversion that can lead to prostate enlargement, and AIM’s formula in particular works well since it derives saw palmetto from the berry extract and not

Brown recluse spider bite heals quickly with no scarring TESTIMONY by Sandy Combs, AIM Chairman’s Club Director, DeBary, Florida Several years back my husband Wayne was bitten on the finger by a brown recluse spider, and it healed up almost instantly after I started giving him AIM BarleyLife® and vitamin C every couple of hours. His finger had turned black, and he had red streaks running up his arm after getting bitten by the spider. He was running a high temperature and the pain in his finger was so great he could hardly stand it. His doctor told him that he might lose the finger, and at best he would have a deep hole in it. In just three days of taking AIM’s barley about every two to three hours, his finger was pain-free with no hole. The color of the finger had turned from black to a light pink. The doctor could not believe what he saw because he knew that the venom from the spider destroyed the cell walls. Now, Wayne has a hard time remembering which finger was involved – no scars, no pain, and no loss of movement. AIM has such great products. This testimonial cannot be construed as representing results everybody can achieve.

Childhood obesity may lead to early death

from the less effective berry powder that many poor quality supplements choose.

Did you know: Research shows that 320 mg of saw palmetto (two capsules of ReAssure SP) improves urinary symptoms as effectively as prescription drugs – and minus the side effects.

Heart attack and cardiac arrest Cardiovascular disease can be blamed for men failing to outlive women. Men suffer heart attacks about 10 years earlier in life than women do, and heart disease now strikes in a man’s fifties and sixties. AIM takes heart health seriously

Children who are obese are twice as likely to die from disease before the age of 55, according to a study in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study, which involved 5,000 children, was the first of its kind to prove obesity as a risk factor for disease and death. Children were measured by body mass index, cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood glucose, and the risk factors most closely associated with early death were blood glucose and body mass.

Did you know: Nearly onefifth of U.S. children are obese, and nearly one-third of all U.S. adults are obese. A healthy weight is possible with good diet choices, including whole-food supplements like AIM Garden Trio®.

Body naturally corrects itself after being on AIM products TESTIMONY by Judy del Fierro AIM Preferred Member, Renton, Washington I have definitely benefited from taking AIM fit ’n fiber®. I started taking AIM BarleyLife® and AIM Herbal Fiberblend® in January 2009. I was not feeling 100 percent health-wise and wanted to do some form of herbal cleanser and, at the same time, replenish my body by taking BarleyLife. I was getting results right away from this cleansing process, and after talking to my brother-in-law (AIM Director) Bob Celski, I added fit ’n fiber to my order and started taking it in February 2009. Toward the end of February, I was concerned I might have a urinary tract infection. I started drinking a lot more water, but that was not resolving my problem. I finally went to see my primary care physician. My doctor said that primary results showed there was something in my urine, so she prescribed me an antibiotic. I went home and took the antibiotic that night before going to bed, and I woke up a few hours later having to use the bathroom. I got up and fell to my knees. I was extremely dizzy and had to crawl to the bathroom. After that, I managed to get back to bed and assumed I would be okay. I woke up feeling worse. I thought I had vertigo and had to call my clients and tell them I could not work. I called my pharmacist, and he told me it may be the side effects from the antibiotics. I called my doctor and was prescribed a different antibiotic. I was dizzy for days! When I went back to see my doctor, she told me the results from my urinalysis showed no infection. I told her I did not start the new antibiotic because I was so dizzy. She then took my blood pressure as I was sitting up and then instructed me

to lie down. My blood pressure dropped. She had me sit up again, and I just about toppled over. We discussed what was going on with my diet and any major changes. I told her about the AIM products, and she instructed me to bring them in for my next visit. In the meantime, she cut my blood pressure medication in half. I was instructed to do this for two days and was also told that if I had any ill side effects to come in right away. After two days, I went back to see my doctor and to tell her I was still dizzy. She did the same exercise with taking my blood pressure sitting up and lying down. Again my blood pressure dropped, so she cautiously told me to go off my blood pressure medication and to see her in two days. She also instructed me to purchase a blood pressure cuff so that I could monitor my blood pressure daily. She then read all the ingredients that were in the AIM products. She said it was possible that these products were helping my body “correct itself,” but she couldn’t be sure until I was totally off my blood pressure medication. Then it made sense to me that it was toxins leaving my body through my urine as well. Within 24 hours, the dizziness disappeared. After 48 hours, I felt “balanced.” I saw my doctor, and she was happy to say my blood pressure was 127/78. She said to keep doing what I was doing and to monitor my blood pressure closely. After being on these AIM products, my body has naturally corrected itself, and I am no longer on blood pressure medication. My blood pressure range is 120-127 over 70-77. This is awesome! On top of correcting my blood pressure, I am starting to feel a lot better physically. That totally helps my mind and my spirit!
