Sometimes it seems that Mark Twain was correct on his assessment of health: “The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.”
The body is in a constant state of war against unhealthy invaders, too often aided by today’s lifestyle of fast food, processed meals, not enough fruits and vegetables, lack of whole grain products, too little water consumption, and portions too large for our own good. Toss in the reality that the body is also constantly having to defend itself from bacteria, viruses, and parasites … and the battle for the body is an ongoing struggle that must be won to stay healthy.
The human body has the ability to combat disease- and illness-causing invaders, generally lumped under the heading of immune system. In Latin, immunitas means “freedom from disease.” It is a little like David versus Goliath. All those things out there trying to do harm to the body battled by the immune system, which has no major organs of its own. Rather, it is composed of cells and molecules with access to all parts of the body. For these cells and molecules, life is pretty simple in design but sometimes difficult to execute. They see their task as good versus bad. If there is something bad in the body, they attack it; if not, they leave it alone.
The immune system is really two lines of defense against trouble. (1) Physical and chemical roadblocks including the skin, gastric acid, mucus, tears, and natural killer cells. This is called the innate immune system.
(2) The other line is referred to as the adaptive immune system. These cells can tell the difference between good and bad in the body, resulting in production of a natural cellular mechanism to search out and destroy an unwanted, unhealthy intruder.
The body system is designed to maintain and take care of itself. But, in times of stress and to stay ahead of the good versus bad battle going on every second of every day in the body, a little help from some friends can go a long way in tipping the scales toward the good guys.
The AIM Companies™ has two products that specifically target the immune system with needed assistance. They are AIM Herbal Release® and AIM Proancynol® 2000. In addition, there are two complementary products that play a role in helping the body’s reaction to trouble, AIM GinkgoSense™ and AIM Bear Paw Garlic®.
AIM Herbal Release®
It is not a product in the AIM mix you hear a lot about, but those who understand it and have tried AIM Herbal Release®,swear by it. It was developed with the immune system, specifically the lymphatic system, in mind. The lymphatic system plays a key role in building and supporting the immune system through 11 herbs that work together as a cleansing agent. The lymphatic system consists of the bone marrow, thymus, lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, spleen, adenoids, and tonsils. All of these organs remove waste from the body and boost the function of the immune system. Without a well-functioning system to rid the body of waste, you can imagine the negative consequences. AIM Herbal Release® is formulated for that most important task.
Linda Cole, Royal Emerald Director, from Arlington, Washington: “Wow, what can’t I say about AIM Herbal Release®. It is the greatest natural health product for our lymphatic system on the market. As a 10-year cancer free woman, my journey includes the use of a number of AIM products, one of which is AIM Herbal Release®. I had breast cancer in October of 1996 and I chose to have the lump removed. Before I realized why I needed lymph nodes, they also removed several nodes causing abnormal swelling, fluid retention, pain, and much more. Even though I had 23 lymph nodes removed, I do not have lymphodema, which is swelling of the arm. I credit the AIM products, including AIM Herbal Release®, and a lifestyle diet change for my successful healing journey.”
AIM Proancynol® 2000
Antioxidants are necessary to aid the body in fighting some of the causes of a variety of serious illnesses – cancer, heart attack, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, cataracts, asthma, and age-related maladies. While the body does produce some antioxidants naturally, the ability of the body to produce them diminishes with age. AIM Proancycnol® 2000 contains seven antioxidant ingredients to supplement your body’s fight against damaging conditions. These include green tea extract, rosemary extract, grape seed extract, N-acetylcysteine, alpha-lipoic acid, lycopene, and selenium. They work both individually and together to bolster the body’s natural immune defenses.
Connie Knight is a Chairman’s Club Director from Apopka, Florida. She has had both personal experience and “grandmother” experience with the benefits of the product. She is sold on the value of an effective immune system supplement.
“This summer,” she says, “I had an upper respiratory problem due to chemical sprays. My allergy to dust also flared up. I had been taking three AIM Proancynol® 2000 capsules daily for circulatory problems. I increased the amount to three capsules twice a day and was able to control my allergic reaction. I began to respond within minutes of taking the product. This is definitely a product I cannot be without.”
She adds that it also came in handy during a visit by her grandson, Jacob. He has an allergy to cats and he has asthma. He no more than jumped on her couch when he began asking for water to spray his eyes. “I went to investigate and found his face was swollen and his eyes were like small slits. I immediately gave him three AIM Proancnynol® 2000 capsules. You can imagine my concern. Normally, he would have had to go to the hospital to get medication and have a breathing treatment to stop his allergic reaction. Within 40 minutes, his reaction was gone with no medication.”
While considered a complementary rather than a primary supporter of the immune system, AIM GinkgoSense™ addresses a weakness in the system. That is, as the body ages it is less able to produce natural immune system defenses so the value of supplementation is vital. This product is directed at enhancing the nervous system, which involves moving, touching, smell, hearing, and vision. The immune system and the nervous system combine to give the body and the mind weapons against loss of memory, diminished concentration, and lessening vision. The immune system, as with any system in the body, requires food to march throughout the body to seek and destroy problems. AIM GinkgoSense™ is one of the AIM products supplying necessary and sometimes missing nutrition.
Sheryl Park, AIM Director, Lubbock, Texas, can testify to the value of AIM GinkgoSense™. “In the fall of 2003, I was diagnosed with the beginnings of glaucoma, which is pressure in the eye. As the pressure increases, it damages the optic nerve and eventually causes blindness, if left untreated. The treatments also have possible negative side effects. A year later my condition had not worsened, but neither had it improved.”
It was then that Sheryl heard a presentation at the Texas BarleyLife convention on AIM GinkgoSense™ and she heard about it helping eyes. “Then I started really listening. The nurse who was giving the presentation, when I told her of my condition, recommended taking a combination of AIM products including AIM GinkgoSense™. I followed her suggestions. When I went back to the ophthalmologist in April of 2006, he told me I had no glaucoma. I thank God for the AIM products and the individuals who share their knowledge about how the products can help people.”
AIM Bear Paw Garlic®The cardiovascular system consists of the heart and the blood vessels, responsible for blood circulating throughout the body and, therefore, the movement of immune system fighters. The more efficient the heart and vessels, the better for the immune system to perform its role of protecting the body. Garlic has a long history of being a heart and blood vessel health aid. AIM Bear Paw Garlic® has a unique form of garlic that makes it particularly effective. The garlic comes from Allium ursinum, a wild species of European garlic. It has strengths and staying power beyond the more domesticated forms of garlic.
Sandy Combs, Chairman’s Club Director, DeBary, Florida, appreciates all the benefits she can get from the garlic. She and some friends needed all the cardio and, therefore, the immune system help she could get.
“We had an ugly siege of a very contagious intestinal flu going around our area,” says Sandy. “Adults, along with children, were ending up in the hospital. While helping take care of my 1-year-old granddaughter, who was very ill with this flu, I ended up getting it. I went through two hours of non-stop trips to the bathroom every 10 minutes with severe diarrhea. Nothing seemed to be helping slow this activity. A friend called and told me to try AIM Bear Paw Garlic®. I took 8-9 capsules all at one time. The diarrhea stopped immediately. I took five more AIM Bear Paw Garlic® and I was fine. When I told my AIM sponsor about this, she took 10 capsules as a precautionary measure and proceeded to deliver the product to friends and family who had been ill with the flu for days. Her friends started seeing the same positive results. We keep AIM Bear Paw Garlic® on hand all of the time. We feel that it is a ‘must have’ for every family’s defense.”
Think of a valuable piece of china. If you drop it, it is never the same – damaged, shattered, probably beyond repair. It is no different with your health. You do not want it to “drop” or be diminished. One of the most important things you can do for yourself is to keep your immune system in as good a condition as it can get. AIM has two products specifically developed with that in mind, AIM Proancynol® 2000 and AIM Herbal Release®. Also available are two complementary products: AIM GinkgoSense™ and AIM Bear Paw Garlic® which boost the immune system. In doing good work for the cardio system, the immune system also benefits.
There is an old proverb that says, “He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything.” Do yourself a favor. Give that proverb a nudge in the right direction with some immune system products
