What If Money Was No Object? What Would You Do?

What do you desire? What makes you itch?

What sort of a situation would you like?

Let’s suppose, I do this often in vocational guidance of students, they come to me and say, well, “We’re getting out of college and we have the faintest idea what we want to do”.

So I always ask the question, “what would you like to do if money were no object? How would you really enjoy spending your life?"

Well, it's so amazing as a result of our kind of educational system, crowds of students say well, we'd like to be painters, we'd like to be poets, we'd like to be writers, but as everybody knows you can't earn any money that way. Or another person says well, I'd like to live an out-of-doors life and ride horses. I said you want to teach in a riding school? Let's go through with it. What do you want to do?

When we finally got down to something, which the individual says he really wants to do, I will say to him, you do that and forget the money, because, if you say that…

6 Ways to Preserve and Reverse Age-Related Muscle Loss

1. Consume high quality protein. The amino acids in protein are the building blocks of muscle. Consider adding ProPeas® to your smoothie.

2. Get 30 grams of protein per meal. Though it's more than what's recommended for general health and good nutrition, "getting a consistent, moderate 30-gram dose at mealtimes appears to be optimal for building and maintaining lean muscle mass." (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee). (Note: 12 grams of protein per serving in ProPeas®.)

3. Eat you omega-3 fat. The essential fatty acids are known to boost everything from heart health to mood. And a growing body of research has also linked omega-3s with muscle maintenance. Essential fatty acids are an anti-inflammatory powerhouse. AIMega® is a balanced essential fatty acid.

4. Check your Vitamin D levels. If you are deficient, consider upping your daily intake with a supplement. Vitamin D helps with muscle protein synthesis and fights inflammation. CalciAIM™ is an all-natural Vitamin D s…

No More Cracks In Her Fingers or Heels

"I cannot express the wonderful experience I am feeling, with the new Mag-nificence. It is magnificent.

For years I was prone to dry feet and hands, always creaming. After my monthly manicure, I would develop horizontal cracks in my fingers, which were painful.

My heels are now as smooth and soft as a baby's, no more cracks in my fingers and it just gives me an all over feeling of calmness and well being.

Thanks AIM for another wonderful product." - June Poswiata, Bracebridge, Ontario

The Power of Touch To Boost Your Immune System

In an article called, “The Power of Touch,” Ayana Byrd writes about touch:
It can also boost your immune system and get you back on your feet sooner, according to research done by Tiffany Field, Ph.D., director of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami. And a 2004 study from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found that sharing a love seat with a partner for 10 minutes lowered blood pressure in premenopausal women. That study also concluded that women have reduced heart rates when they get lots of hugs. But hugs don't have to be from a romantic partner. Various other studies have shown that touch helps asthma, eases migraines, and leads to a more restful night's sleep. A report by ABC News discussed the connection between touch and the probability of a team winning in sports competition. They reported:
Two social psychologists from the University of California-Berkeley, both avid basketball players themselves, recently analyzed 90 hours of televi…

After Years Of Going Blind, She Can Now See

"I have word from my eye doctor (the same one that told me I would go completely blind, slowly, but surely by the time I'm 80) just gave me news I thought I would NEVER hear - I have regained enough sight back, that I can now get my drivers license for daytime driving, after 11 years of going blind.

Because of faithfully taking the AIM products, I have went from 20/200 (legally blind) to 20/80 vision and no longer am I disabled. I can't thank you enough AIM! Thank you, thank you, thank you." - Cathlene Ann Blanton, Ontario, Oregon

If You Don’t Have Your Health, You Don’t Have Anything

"I want people to realize no matter how famous you are or how much money you have, if you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything. There was no one who wanted to live more than Jim did. No one. But he couldn’t. So make sure you take care of yourself. Get checked what you should get checked. Live each day the best you possibly can. And don’t ever, ever take life for granted." - Pam Valvano Strasser, former wife of deceased N.C. State basketball coach Jim Valvano

'Feeding Kids For Health' by Tom Naughton

"Feeding Kids For Health" is the topic for today's podcast. Since feeding our girls is mostly my wife's responsibility, I brought Chareva into the episode, followed by the girls themselves.

Lose The Pain and Brain Fog

Low levels of ATP have been found in people with myalgia (body pain). ATP requires magnesium to be properly synthesized. ATP also requires magnesium to be stable.

Consequently, people with magnesium deficiencies can have low ATP levels. This can cause increased body pain, as well as difficulty with cognitive brain function.

Mag-nificence® and Peak Endurance® go hand-in-hand and work well together for optimal ATP absorption.

Tom Venuto Defines Health

"Health is what psychologist Abraham Maslow called a deficiency need, which means when you’ve lost it, getting it back is the only thing in the world that matters.

Unfortunately, two corollaries to this theory of human motivation are:

1. Most people won’t lift a finger to improve their health until something bad happens (they have to hit “rock bottom” to change), and

2. When you’ve got your health, you tend to take it for granted.

That’s why we need constant reminders to keep our focus on health and keep health right on top of our list of life values."

- Tom Venuto, Bodybuilder and Author of 'Burn the Fat, Feed The Muscle'

How To Quickly Improve Muscle Fatigue

Dr. Akash Sinha, from Newcastle University, reports that supplementation with Vitamin D for ten to twelve weeks dramatically improved muscle phosphocreatine recovery or muscle efficiency.

Previous research also suggested Vitamin D supplementation could also improve muscle power in obese people, as well as reduce joint and muscle pain for cancer patients.

Keep in mind the body is unable to use Vitamin D properly without magnesium. If you have low levels of Vitamin D, then consider CalciAIM™ as well as Mag-nificence™.

Do You Have These Four Things For Strong Bones?

"Too many people focus on calcium. It takes four things to make strong bones: protein, calcium, magnesium and vitamin D. Of the four, only calcium has a lobby, i.e. the dairy industry. Paleolithic man didn’t consume a whole lot of calcium but got plenty of the other three and had bones that were 11% stronger than ours." - Dr. Michael Eades, M.D., physician and author

Childhood Obesity, Type II Diabetes and Magnesium Deficiency

Type II Diabetes has risen over 14% in the last two years.

In a study titled "Magnesium Deficiency," Dr. Milagros Huerta links magnesium deficiency to insulin resistance and the childhood obesity epidemic. This was the first study linking low magnesium levels to insulin resistance and eventually type 2 diabetes.

Research showed 55% of obese children did not get enough magnesium from the foods they ate, compare with only 27% of lean children. Obese children had much lower magnesium levels in their blood than lean children. Children with lower magnesium levels had higher insulin resistance.

This study also showed extra body fat can prevent the body's cells from using magnesium to break down carbohydrates. This information does not only apply to children, but adults as well.

Mag-nificence® is uniquely created for optimal absorption of magnesium, through the skin, at the cellular level. To learn more, Click Here.

Help Keep Your Skin From Aging and Developing Wrinkles

According to a study from the Netherlands, vitamin K plays a role in maintaining skin elasticity. In fact, it may help the skin from aging and developing wrinkles, particularly those who suffer from PXE, a condition of severe wrinkling of the skin on the face and body.

A high level of vitamin K can be found in LeafGreens™.

Another study from the University of Texas, shows elderly people who supplement their diet with a full range of essential amino acids - the building blocks of the body - can increase their lean body mass and improve muscle mass, strength and function.

LeafGreens™ contains a variety of essential amino acids and much more. To learn more, Click Here.

Are You Getting Enough Fiber Every Day?

Are you getting enough fiber every day? The suggested daily intake for dietary fiber is between 25 to 35 grams per day.

Dietary fiber helps to prevent gallstones, control irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and almost any intestinal disorder. It also helps to control cholesterol, blood sugar and prevent colon cancer.

Studies show that ninety-six percent of Americans do not have an adequate intake of fiber.

 You can get help to achieve this goal with fit ‘n fiber®. It contains 12 grams of fiber per serving, including 10 grams of soluble fiber, which can contribute to weight loss and may also decrease blood cholesterol.

Iron Intake By Women May Help Protect Against PMS

At University of Massachusetts Amherst and Harvard, a clinical trial with 3,000 women evaluated whether mineral intake could affect symptoms of PMS.

Women who consumed higher intakes of non-hem iron, the form found in plant foods, were 30-40% less likely to suffer from PMS.

Nutritional supplements from The AIM Companies™ containing plant foods high in iron include: BarleyLife®, BarleyLife Xtra®, RediBeets® and LeafGreens®.

Note: The study at Harvard also suggested diets high in vitamin B, from food sources, helped reduce the incidence of PMS and will help reduce fatigue during this time.

Peak Endurance® is a great source of vitamin B, as well as daily intake of FloraFood®.

FloraFood® also helps to facilitate absorption of vitamin B.

More Sleep For Kids Means Less Chance of Obesity

Not feeling well rested? Compared to twenty years ago, an increasing number of American adults, some estimates as high as seventy million, are getting no more than six hours of sleep per night.

It's recommended adults get seven to nine hours of sleep per night, with kids needing more.

For children, ten hours of sleep is recommended and not just for feeling rested in the morning.

A study at the University of Michigan found that kids who don't get enough sleep have a sixty percent greater chance of being obese by middle school, than those who do get at least ten hours of sleep per night.

Protecting The Health of Your Family Pets

"Ziggy is my two year old rescue cat that has herpes. His immune system needs a constant boost, so I give him the Flora Food probiotics and BarleyLife. It took him a little while to get used to the BarleyLife, but now he loves it.

I also give both products to my older rescue cat, Baxter, that has some arthritis. The next product to try on Baxter is the Frame Essentials, which has glucosomine and MSM and the AIMega for added essential fatty acids." - Nancy Lowry, St. Pete, Florida
