Here's Part II:

Are Cofactors Missing in Your Diet?

"When cofactors are missing, as they are in synthetic vitamins, the body may treat the vitamin as a foreign substance and eliminate it. Or it may grab the needed cofactors from its own organs, bones, muscles and other tissue. In other words, your body starts eating itself. Over time, this depletes the body, causing disease and degeneration. Whole food supplements solve these problems while providing vitamins the body can absorb." - Dr. Heidi Dulay, Ed.D., N.C.

Note: Cofactors is the term professionals use to refer to vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients the body needs to process food. Co-factors are crucial for absorbing nutrition from food, making fuel for energy, breaking down protein, neutralizing stress and aging gracefully.

Brady, Surgery and BarleyLife® Xtra

On Valentine’s Day 2011, our son had part of his adenoids removed and tubes put in his ears. He needed the surgery due to fluid build up.

The doctors prepared us by saying Brady would be sore for the next few days. They also said to expect swelling, bad breath, a fever, and nose bleeding.

We were told to expect a week for things to return to normal.

So you can imagine our delight when Brady started feeling well while in the hospital recovery room. He kept saying over and over he was ready to go home. He didn’t even take any pain medication!

After we returned home, Brady acted like nothing had happened. He played with his toys and ran around the house. We waited for him to complain or get tired, but he never did. None of the symptoms we were cautioned about ever appeared.

The next day, Brady wanted to go to school. We were hesitant, but the doctor said it was okay. The shocked school nurse said she had never seen that before.

After talking it over, my wife and I concluded the quick re…

The Most Powerful Heart Disease Prevention Strategy?

"Provided you don't do something stupid, like allow M&M's, Coca Cola, and corn chips to dominate your diet, elimination of wheat is an enormously effective means to reduce small LDL particles, reduce triglycerides, increase HDL, reduce inflammatory measures like c-reactive protein, lose weight (inflammation-driving visceral fat), reduce blood sugar, and reduce blood pressure. I know of no other single dietary strategy that packs as much punch." - Dr. William Davis, M.D.

Gary Taubes Interview In Denver

She Left the Hospital Expecting to Die

Nine months ago, Marie Smith from Southport, Florida thought her sarcoidosis had finally gotten the best of her. Her lungs were only functioning at sixty percent capacity and she left the hospital expecting to die soon.

"I struggled to breathe and was not strong enough to do anything for myself," says Marie.

"My voice was weak and my health was gone. I weighed two hundred and three pounds and no matter what I tried in the past, the weight would not come off. I no longer cared about my weight. I just wanted to be healthy. My mind did not function well and I often felt like I was outside my body with no control over my actions. I also had panic attacks.

"I don't drink, use tobacco, or take drugs, except when prescribed, but in the last two months I had taken thousands of dollars worth of medicine that the doctors wanted me to try. Still no help, and I was having horrible reactions to them."

Marie's disease had been taking a toll on her lungs for almost a…

A Side Effect of Healthy Diet

"Health is and should be the main reason you low-carb and weight loss is merely a side effect of healthy low-carb living." - Jimmy Moore, The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Blog

"...the Mayo Clinic confirmed Stephen was free of arthritis."

In 1987, at the age of twenty-three, Stephen Distad had a bright future in the music industry, pursuing a master’s degree in organ church music at Baylor University.

However, those dreams appeared as if they would be derailed. Stephen developed a severe case of rheumatoid arthritis, casting a cloud on his future in music.

Tests at the Mayo Clinic confirmed Stephen’s greatest fear: The severity of his arthritis would be too great to continue with his music studies. According to the physicians at the clinic, Stephen would eventually need a wheelchair and have to change careers. The best treatment was to mask the side effects while the condition worsened.

This story gained notoriety in a local newspaper. The news article caught the attention of AIM Member Douglas Waters. He decided to go to the residence of Stephen Distad in Waco, taking with him a jar of green powder called BarleyLife®.

Throughout his life, Stephen sought natural remedies for his arthritis, including a therapy with b…

How Do YOU Introduce Network Marketing?

Crazy expectations? Have we brought these on ourselves by the way we sell this business?
We know how the business is SOLD at the recruiting meetings:

"The product sells itself!"

"It's just like recommending a restaurant! You do that, don’t you?"

"Look at this tuna boat fisherman! If he can do it, you can do it!"

"Make full-time income, part-time!"

"Anyone can do this!"

"It’s easy!"

"It's simple!"

That is what most are sold. And then they get in. Many with no previous business, sales or network marketing experience.

After the person is in, they start to hear about:
how long it will take how much work it ishow much they have to skill uphow much they have to invest in their education… The bad news: All of this is saved for after a person signs up.

Until we recruit with these kinds of messages – not save them for people who are already in, and who were told an entirely different story in the recruiting meetin…

Does a Change in Diet Help Alcoholism?

"Alcoholics are utterly dependent upon and regularly seek fast sources of sugar – alcohol being the fastest … the problem in alcoholism, in fact, really isn't alcohol per se, but severe carbohydrate addiction … Once cravings for carbohydrates and dependence on carbohydrates as the primary source of fuel are eliminated, so are the alcohol cravings. Training the body to depend upon ketones rather than sugar for fuel is key to this equation." - Nora Gedgaudas, author of 'Primal Body - Primal Mind'

Michael Pollan Talks Paleo/Primal with Oprah

I don't watch Oprah, but I did see the news that the talk show queen and her staff have gone vegan. The best part of the show was Michael Pollan:

Pollan: When you hear the phrase "health care crisis" or "health care cost crisis," that is a euphemism for the catastrophe that is the American diet. 75% of our health care spending is on chronic diseases linked to diet. That’s really what’s bankrupting us, and that has to do with the way we’re eating - way too many calories, too much processed foods, tons of refined carbohydrates.

Oprah: And by "refined carbohydrates," what do you mean?

Pollan: White flour - things with white flour in it, and sugar. Soda.

Oprah: It's all those things that are packaged in the boxes and that you just add water.

Pollan: Exactly. It's all that processed food. So our diet has changed more in the last hundred years than in the last 10,000, probably, with the result that it is affecting our health.

To see the video interview, c…
