Treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder with Saturated Fats

Children who were diagnosed as suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD / ADHD) have been successfully treated by re-introducing natural saturated fats into their diets.

Saturated fats are things such as whole cream, animal fat and coconut oil. Avocados and grass-fed butter are other examples of healthy, saturated fat.

Your brain is made largely of fat, consisting of around seventy percent of fat.

During a Visit to My Doctor

During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, "How do you determine whether or not an older person should be put in an old age home?"

"Well," he said, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the person to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No" he said. "A normal person would pull the plug."

"So do you want a bed near the window?"

Welcome Back, Fat!

An article in the highly respected scientific journal, Journal of the American Medical Association, urges authorities to to remove restrictions on the amount of dietary fat.

From the article:
The limit on total fat presents an obstacle to sensible change, promoting harmful low-fat foods, undermining attempts to limit intakes of refined starch and added sugar, and discouraging the restaurant and food industry from providing products higher in healthful fats. It is time for the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services to develop the proper signage, public health messages, and other educational efforts to help people understand that limiting total fat does not produce any meaningful health benefits and that increasing healthful fats, including more than 35% of calories, has documented health benefits. Based on the strengths of accumulated new scientific evidence and consistent with the new DGAC report, a restructuring of national nutritional policy is w…

How To Feel Great in Your Ripe Old Age - Even If You're 94

"My name is Janice Gravely. In May 2015, I had my ninety-fourth birthday, but when I was seventy-five, I felt old.

I had four degenerative diseases and I had a hard time fulfilling my speaking engagements that took me all over the United States, to China, Africa, Middle East, Russia, Europe.

But one day, my hostess in New Orleans packed me a little insulated bag with something she called Barleygreen® and fresh carrot juice. Between radio dates and lunch, she had me drink the combination and it was good.

Between lunch and the dinner meeting, she gave me another glass of the cold, delicious juice and I felt fine for each occasion. I wasn’t even tired when I went to bed.

She saw me off on the airplane with Barleygreen and information about The AIM Companies and their fine support.

That was nineteen years ago, but now it’s called BarleyLife®. It was a new life for me.

With some diet changes and adding BarleyLife and carrot juice, I began to feel better all the time. After about thre…

Greener and Leafier LeafGreens™

The new LeafGreens™ formula just got a whole lot healthier, with the addition of three new "super" vegetables: arugula, Swiss chard and kale.

AIM removed faba bean and field pea leaves, but made sure to replace the kaempferol and quercetin they supplied. You'll still be getting a similar zesty taste, just with more vitamins, flavanols and phytonutrients, packed into every healthier, greener and leafier serving.


Swiss Chard

Swiss chard is a leafy vegetable in the same family as spinach. It contains significant amounts of vitamins C, E and K, magnesium, manganese, potassium and iron. It’s also a source of chlorophyll, dietary nitrate, alphalipoic acid, betalains, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin.

What’s New?

Swiss chard contains thirteen different types of antioxidants, including kaempferol and syringic acid, a flavonoid that according to a study published in the Journal of Acute Disease, helps to stabilize blood sugars.


Kale

Popular in its own right, kale is a leafy green …

The Many Health Benefits of Bear Paw Garlic®

A different and unique form of garlic can be found in Bear Paw Garlic®. It is not made from Allium sativum, the form of garlic sold in supermarkets and used in most garlic supplements.

Instead, Bear Paw Garlic® comes from Allium ursinum, a wild species of garlic found in central Europe. Rather than farmed in a field, this form of garlic is found in the hills and mountains.

The name comes from the claim that bears, after awakening from winter hibernation, consume wild garlic to regain strength.

Although most of us think of the bulb and cloves when considering garlic, the active substances in Allium ursinum are found in its green leaves.

What People Are Saying

"We had an ugly siege of a very contagious intestinal flu going around our area. 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…
