The Aim Products
A Number of the aim products are exemplary cell foods. Aim whole food concentrates are an easy way to all the power of fresh raw vegetable to your diet.
- When you take Aim Barley life, Aim just Carrots, or Aim RediBeets, you give yourself the equivalent of these foods – barley, carrots, and beets. That means you get nutrients as found in nature, with live enzymes.
- Other Aim products that provide your cells with important enzymes that help battle free radicals,
- Aim Prepzymes, which provide enzymes that help battle free radicals; Aim Cellstar plus Aim Cellsparc 360, which provides energy-creating coenzymes, and
- Aim Cranberry, which contains important flavoniods and is especially good for the cells that make up the urinary tract.
- Bear paw Garlic has powerful antioxidants, helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels and is an Anti-fungal & antibacterial. There is CalciAIM fill of Calcium, Magnesium, l-lysine, Vitamin C &D along with Zinc and Copper, Strengthens bones and teeth, contributes to the healthy functioning of muscles and nerves, plus helps with weight loss.
- If your having trouble with sleeping then go no further than taking composure which helps relieve nervous tension, stress and mild anxiety, creating restful sleep,
- Flora food – Each capsule contains Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium longum and Bifidobacterium bifidum.
These are any a few of the products that are very beneficial to building your body .
Exercise is seeing that your cells get exercise , that us m, that you exercise, this can take the form of working outs at the health clubs, group sports activities, after dinner walks, gardening or simply walking when you run errands.
Its seems: that with every passing month research give us more reasons to exercise. Studies show that regular exercise leads to better physical and mental health and an overall improved life style.
Exercise helps us physically. When we exercise routinely, our bodies work more efficiently- we use less energy to get better results, this pertains not only to physical movement- we can walk further, shop longer, play with the kids more energetically- but also fight disease or stress, or in the healing process. This can result in a faster recovery time, less stress, and a more powerful immune system.
More specifically, Physical Activity and Health: A Report of the Surgeon General lists the following benefits of exercise.
- Reduces the risk of dying prematurely and from heart disease, and of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, and colon cancer:
- Helps reduce blood pressure in people who already have high blood pressure:
- Reduces feeling of depression and anxiety, promotes psychological well-being
- Helps control weight:
- Helps build and maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints.
- Helps older adults become stronger and better able to move about without falling.
The report also notes that you do not have to turn into an exercise fanatic to obtain these results. People who are usually inactive can improve their health and well-being by becoming even moderately active on a regular basis, and physical activity need not be strenuous to achieve health benefits.
Exercise helps us mentally
We often hear about athletes who win through brain power, not strength in other words, mental sharpness enhances athletes. What we don’t consider as often is the opposite: that excise enhances mental powers. This may be partially due to the relaxing and stress-busting effect of exercise. Exercising releases hormones, neurotransmitters [which helps the brain to communicate with in it self [and other substances that help the body relax.
Brain researchers are beginning to speculate on the link between movement and learning, and the beginning to believe, that exercise not only shapes up muscles and expand the lungs, but also buffs up the cerebellum, an important part of the brain.
It appears that exercise feeds the head with a better supple of neurotrophins, important substances that increase brain cell growth. In a study publishes in the Jan. 12, 1995, issues of the journal Nature, rats that ran – that exercised had more of these important growth factors than couch potato rats.
When more complex movements are undertaken, be it dance aerobics, crossover dribbles, or ballet, the brain produces a greater number of connections between neurons. William Greenough, PH. D of the William T. Greenough Lab, investigates the effect of physical exercise on the cerebellum and the other brain regions. One of his tests on the exercise and movement shows that rats that exercise in the any way has more capillaries around the brain’s neurons than sedentary rats, which indicate an increased supply of nutrients to the brain. The rats that also work on coordination and dexterity show more connections between neurons.
What can you do?
If you feel that you need to start, or expand, an exercise program, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Find activities that you enjoy.
Participating in an activity only because’ it is a good for you’ is probably not going to result in a long-term commitment.
Make the exercise convenient.
If you have to drive across town, or spend a half hourgetting ready, you will be less likely to make exercising a regular thing. This is why exercising such as walking or cycling is good, all you do is walk out the door and begin.
The Aim Products
All Aim products conform to healthy cell concept, and many are very beneficial for cell exercise. Aim Cellsparc 360 provides your cells with coenzymes Q10 the spark of energy they need to perform well. Aim Barleylife provides you with needed nutrients for an energetic workout, replaces spent nutrients after a work out, and along with Aim Proancynol 2000, helps fight the free radicals produced by exercise.
Many athletes use Aim Frame Essentials with its unique combination of glucosamine, boswellia extract derived from boswellia serrate, and MSN to strengthen and sooth joints and muscles. Following a strenuous work out with a long, mineral;- restoring soak in Aim Cell Wellness Restorer, is a great way to help your muscle recuperate and be ready to perform again the next day.. Of course, any exercise. Routine is enhanced by a healthy diet, so the Aim Garden Trio is also valuable in cell exercise.
A healthy environment is important for good health
Cell environment is an important part of the healthy cell concept, but it is also perhaps the most frustrating. This is because it is probably the hardest concept for us to change,. We have the means to easily obtain or change cell food and cell exercise, but changing our environment is a much more difficult chore. It is difficult to avoid are and water pollutants.
In Australia, the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] has recently proposed new air-quality standards. They have met with a firestorm of criticism from many who believe they’re too expensive, too regulatory. But whatever you think of the government and regulation, the EPA proposed these new standards for a reason: the air around us is polluted and living in polluted air affects out health.
Air pollution come in many different forms. The most well known air pollutants are sulphur dioxide, [power plants, diesel engines], suspended particulate matter [construction, industry, wood burning], ground level ozone [automobiles], and cabon monoxide [automobiles].
Our indoors is often polluted, too, approximately 35 percent of the office space has pollution level higher than the air outside. This comes from chemicals in cleaners, carpet adhesives, plastic products, and other sources, and is compounded by poor ventilation. The results of these air pollutants are decease in quality of life and increase in medical bills. Air pollution damages the lungs by causing irritation that leads to inflammation and the destruction of lung tissue. It weakens the lungs’ ability to fight further contamination, which makes the prolonged exposure to air pollutants increase destruction.
Air pollution also hurts our nature defences against airborne invaders such as dust, pollen and germs. Air pollution dries up mucus and destroys cilia. This is dangerous because the mucus in the air ways traps germs and particle before they reach our lungs, and the cilia, hair like cells, push the mucus out of the body.
Health statistics are telling. The examination of lung tissues from young people who were raised in cities indicated that 80 percent suffered from precancerous lung lesions, most studies estimate that 5 percent of the deaths in major cities can be linked to air pollution, and that some 60,000 deaths a year can be attributed to air pollution.
Water is perhaps the most important nutrient in our bodies. Although water does not contain ‘nutrients’ as we know them- protein, carbohydrates, enzymes, vitamins – with out water, we cannot survive.
What does water do?
- Water helps break down foods into the nutrients we need. Without it, we would have no digestive juices.
- Water transports nutrients and helps us absorb them.
- Water helps remove from the body, the waste naturally created by the body. If we do not dispose of this waste, we die.
- Water helps remove toxins that we get through food and pollutants.
- Water lubricates the body; it prevents friction from destroying our joints, lubricates our eyes, and makes it possible for muscles to work smoothly.
- Water keeps us from overheating by regulating our temperature.
- Water is needed for functioning in the brain to survive.
- Water is also needed for the bowel to dehydrate us, best you to have a drink.
Drink Pure Water
One of the best things we can do for our health is drink water. The human body needs approximately 2 litres of water a day. We get this through the food we eat, through metabolism, and through drinking water. We should drink 8, 8oz [740ml] glass of pure water through out each day – try to drink a warm glass of water every hour.
This is important because if you do not give your body enough water, it takes it from your cells and from your blood. This causes your body to close some smaller blood vessels, called capillaries, and makes your blood thicker and harder to pump around your body. This has implications in high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease. Lack of water may be link to headaches, arthritis, and heartburn.
Dehydration is also linked to obesity. Without water your body cannot convert triglycerides [a type of fat] into energy.
Just any liquid will not do. Soda, tea and coffee often function as a diuretic, which stops your body from recycling salt and water and cause you to lose important nutrients.
What to do
Pay attention to what your drink. Tap water is polluted almost everywhere-according to the EPA, virtually every type of industrial substance we create ends up in our water supple. And when we use this water, the pollutant it carries harms our cells. This means you should consider the options. Many people buy bottle water, but be careful. There are no standards for bottle water, and it can be as bad as, if not worse than, tap water. Others buy water filters. Today, technology has made possible efficient and cost-effective filters.
You can help maintain water quality by watching your habits. /when you use fertilizer on your lawn or dump old paint in an alley, these substances eventually end up in the water supply.
See if your community has a ‘hazardous waste day’ when you can dispose of toxin substances.
As with air pollution standards, get together with others to ensure that water-quality standards in your community are sufficient and are met.
The Aim Products
The Aim product most targeted at cell environment is Aim Prills. This unique product, when added to water, strengthens water natural ability as a solvent. This means, it will transport and absorb nutrients better and so all of the water’s other physiological jobs better.
Aim products that aid detoxification are also helpful in ridding the body pollutants picked up in the air and water. These include. Aim Herbal Fiberblend, aim herbal Release, and Aim Para 90. The Aim Garden Trio – Aim Barley Life, Aim Just Carrots and Aim RediBeets, when mixed with pure water, contributes to a healthy inner environment. Aim Flora Food, contributes to a healthy cell environment, especially in the digestive tract through maintaining and restoring the friendly bacteria essential to health.
Recent studies on green barley extract conducted at the University at California- Dais indicated that it may have the ability to detoxify organophosphate insecticides.
A major factor in having healthy cells and a healthy life is the condition of the immune system. This system, a miracle inside our bodies, works to keep us well. It fights disease- that is, it fights the viruses, bacteria, fungi and other microbes that cause disease. When our immune systems are not working well, we can come down with common illness, such as colds, more easily; can run a greater risk of contracting serious illness, and can take a long time to recover from health problems, It pays, then to keep the immune system in tip- top shape.
A brief introduction
One of the reasons that we fall ill is because the body’s defence system- the immune system- is breached by a pathogen. A pathogen is simply an organism that causes disease. Three examples of pathogens are viruses [colds, Aids], bacteria [strep throat, pneumonia], and fungi [athlete’s foot, Candida].
The immune system fights pathogens by first refusing them entry, the skin and mucous membranes at body opening act as guardians. If a pathogen does make it inside the body, different types of white blood cells engulf and destroy it.
Protecting cell protection
We can enhance our immune systems through life style. In improving your immunity, you should focus on your diet, exercise, and attitude. Note that these three components of the Healthy Cell Concept, and a great example of how its individual components work together to form a great whole, in this case cell protection.
You can use diet to aid your immune system in two ways: by eating the right foods and by avoiding the wrong foods.
What are the right foods. As we learnt in the Cell food section of the Healthy Cell Concept, fruits, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates such as grains and whole wheat breads are great. Keeps fat intake low, and get plenty of fiber. Certain vitamins and minerals are especially good for the immune system. Thus Include the B vitamins and Vitamin A, C and E, and the minerals Potassium, copper, iron and zinc
A book by author, Nancy Appleton Ph.D. ‘Lick the sugar habit,’ documents some 77consequence of sugar. These include hyperactivity in children, kidney damage, mineral deficiency and imbalance, weakened eyesight, arthritis, asthma, Candida and hormonal imbalance. Supplements may help boost your immunity. Echinacea and garlic are proven enhancers. A study conducted at Ball State University, Muncie Center for Medical Education. Showed that green barley extract may increase leukocytes- white blood cells important in immunity.
Another component in helping the immune system should be easy, relaxation. This means sleep, low stress, and a good attitude. When we sleep, our bodies recharge themselves, this means repairing tissues, healing and fuelling cells and organs,. Sleep may be the single most important thing we can do to help our immune systems.
Stress hurts the immune system, indirectly, when we worry about family, jobs, friends, or schools, we often lose sleep and cannot relax. This takes valuable recharge time away from our immune system. On a more technical level, recent studies have shown that stressful arguments change the level of harmonies that promote or reduce immune functions. A 1993 study demonstrated that that immune function markers show signification charges after newlywed couples had words on sensitive topic.
Finally! Feeling good about things makes a difference. Although there have long been reports of laughter helping people through illness, they were often dismissed as ‘testimonial’. Now, however, research is discovering why a healthy mental attitude bolsters the immune system. Studies have shown that components of the immune system can respond to chemical secretions by the central nervous system.
White blood cells, for example, become less active in fighting infection when exposed to a neurochemical released in response to stress. David Spiegel of the University of San Francisco led a study showing that women with advance breast cancer survived nearly twice as long if they participate in a weekly support group. Other researcher’s have found the same results in patients with melanoma, leukaemia and lymphoma.
The Aim Products
Many aim products are ‘cell protectors’ aim Barley life, aim just carrots and Aim Bear Paw Garlic, contain nutrients that are beneficial to a healthy immune system, antioxidants, such as those found in aim Proancynol 2000, provide protection against free radical damage, which can hurt our immunity.
Winter is the ‘cold season’ is a good time to educate your self on keeping the immune system healthy by looking into the aim products.
Healthy mental attitude
“Laughter is the best medicine’
Have you ever got a movie out that really made you laugh, it’s a precursor. s a healthy attitude towards life, is indeed a medicine.
Some of us may have heard of Norman Cousins, who helped himself after being diagnosed with an incurable disease by developing’ laughter therapy’ he watched ‘ comedy’ video tapes and found that doing so lowered his blood pressure and improved his condition.
Since Cousins first explored attitude and health, the study of the kink between human behaviour, psychosocial factors, and immunity has taken off. It even has a name, psychoneuroimmunology [PNI]. All the research points out what Cousins and probably many of us guessed all along, that how we feel about life affects out health.
Attitude makes a difference
The two examples – laughter and spiritual beliefs, are two parts of a general overall attitude towards life. The importance of attitude towards life is summed up well by Albert Einstein, the greatest scientist, who noted that the important question all of us must answer ion whether the universe is a friendly place or not. Perhaps the pioneer in looking at attitude and health is Dr. Ronald Grossarth-Maticek. He postulated that good health and long life are dependent upon mental attitude learned in childhood. In 1973, Dr Grossarth-Maticek gave a brief test measuring attitude- habitual feelings if pleasure and well being to 5,716 elderly residents of Heidelberg, Germany. In 1993, he looked again at these subjects and discovered that the 300 people who scored the highest turned out to be 30 time more likely to be alive and well, 21years later than the 300 who had scored lowest.
Fostering the attitude
WE may well understand that how we view life can affect our health. The problem is keeping a healthy mental attitude, especially if we are having down moments on our lives or feel that things just are not what they should be. Here are six things you should strive to so to help elevate your attitude:
- Give your life purpose: Don’t let life pass you by without thinking about it. Decide what you want to do both on the big picture and in regard to small pleasures.
- Develop meaningful relationships. Relationships can be the most rewarding part of life. Many studies show that those with connection live longer, are happier, and are healthier.
- Find opportunities in difficult situations. Don’t whine about the problems, find a way to make them help you, learn from them and grow.
- Study for positive mental attitude.
- Striving to develop a healthy attitude does help. Grossarth-Maticek had shown that attitude can be ‘trained’
- Do the best you can. Making your best effort results in greater self-esteem.
- Enjoy life’s small pleasures. Find time too smell the roses!
Eating for your immune system
- Eat a variety of foods, not just ‘immune system food’. The immune system is varied and, thus, needs many different nutrients. If you sick with only a few foods, you may deprive the body of its nutritional needs.
- Eat generous amounts of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables contain important vitamins as well as photochemical that can help the body fight disease.
- Eat foods that contain minerals, especially zinc, iron, and copper. Don’t overdo it. Too much of these are as bad as not enough.
- Eat complex carbohydrates such as grains and legumes. This results in longer-lasting energy. If you so not get enough Carbohydrates, you body will draw protein, robbing immunological cells of important foods,
- Eat foods high in fiber. Try to consume 30-40 grams of fiber a day.
- Eat before or during time of stress. This way you make sure you get adequate energy needed during times of stress.
- Don’t eat fat. Try not to make fats any more than 20 percent of your caloric intake.
- Don’t eat sweets. They suppress the immune system.
Medication can hurt as it helps
The pharmaceutical industry produces many over the counter products for ‘routine’ illness such as colds, fever, and so on. Unfortunately, in the long run many of these do you more harm that good. What a cold medicine does is suppress the cold’s symptoms- and doing this actually suppress the immune system, when you take these remedies to ‘fell better’, what you are actually doing is prolonging your illness and weakening your immune system.
For example, antihistamines, found in many popular cold –relief produces, interfere with the components of the immune system that fight allergies. Decongestant spays suppress signals to the nose and throat that so little to promote natural defences against invaders.
In other words, if you have a cold, the best thing you can do is eat well and rest. Stay home id you can. Don’t go to work and tire yourself, or spread your cold. It may mean a few days of uncomfortable symptoms, but this beats a life time of a weakened immune system. Plus most medications dry up the nose as well as the colon, creating more problems down the track.
Be laugh friendly
- Be sociable. People laugh much more over people than alone. Ask some one over!
- Learn something new. Learning can be a very humorous situation. Get together with a friend and try something you’ve never tried before- and laugh over your attempts!
- Don’t be laughter-lazy. Humour can be difficult, but it is worth the effort. If the opportunity presents it self for a ‘running gag’ go for it! Jump in with a non sequitur when the opportunity presents itself.
Although there is a controversy within the psychoneuroimmunology field, and it is hard to say just what laughter does to us physically, here is one theory:
The cells of the immune system and cells of the nervous system have a very close relationship this relationship is mediated through cytokines, chemical messengers. Cytokines and produced by both immune and nerve cells types and are identical in composition.
Cytokines are secreted in to the bloodstream by the immune system or into the cerebro-spinal fluid by the nervous system. They are either stimulatory or inhibitory and work on the cell surface receptors of immune and nerve cells. Your mental-emotional state determines your health by determining which cytokines are produced.
Depression and chronic stress are the two most detrimental factors in suppression of the immune system. Depression causes the nervous system to produce inhibitory cytokines, which then depress the immune system. Chronic stress causes the nervous system to produce stimulatory cytokines, which then cause over stimulation of the immune system.
So what do we need to do is laugh more, and eat well. check out web site for the products mentioned, buy Whole sale or retail.
