1. General Comments
I am outraged that the Federal Government is infringing on my personal right to
nutritional choice. I am an adult and I can choose what supplements are best for
my body and me. The responsibility of choosing which nutritional supplements I
should take, as well as all decisions regarding my personal well being belong with
The debate over the banning of Ephedra is wrong, and will open the door to the
future over-regulation of all natural remedies. You can take Ephedra safely if you
stick to the serving limits and follow the warnings and precautions adopted by
numerous medical professionals. As an informed adult, I am intelligent enough to
follow label instructions. The fact that the Federal Government is debating and
deciding what is best for my health is a dangerous and insulting development that
must not stand! As a citizen, taxpayer and responsible, conscientious user of
vitamin and herbal products, I object to the banning of Ephedra products.
Testimony from Harl Sims
The exact dates are hard to remember but back in February 99, I weighed 336 lbs,
had arthritis in both knees (taking 2 different medications), atrial fibrillation
(irregular heart beat, taking 6 different medications) and high blood pressure
(taking 2 medications, but have been taking it for over 25 years), and sleep apnea
(using breathing machine at night, flow-nase and a sleeping pill) That is a total of
12 different medications with some 2 and 3 times per day and a breathing machine.
I am a new Christian and sometime in early February of 99, I went up to the altar
for healing. That night I put the arthritis medications and one atrial fibrillation
medication away (down to 9 medications). I have not taken them since. About the same
time I was introduced to a product called AM300, by my stepdaughter who was visiting
us from Oklahoma. I started taking AM300 in mid February and immediately started
feeling the energy. I took the brochure to my doctor and he said, There is nothing
in this that will hurt you.
In March 99, I had a complete physical (been on AM300 a little over a month) and
I passed with flying colors. My heart muscles strong, valves good, no blockages,
heart beat was better, blood pressure controlled, cholesterol (LDL & HDL) and
triglycerides were great. At that time my weight was 311, down 25 pounds. Now its
Sept. 21, 1999, and I weight 271 pounds in the doctors office today. That is 65
pounds gone since I started using AM300.
In addition I have quit using the breathing machine, sleeping pills, blood pressure
medication, and one other atrial fibrillation medication (down to 6 medications). I
have reduced my total intake of prescription medication in half and no longer have
arthritis of the knees and do not require the breathing machine.
My doctor is so impressed about the changes in me he is now reading about AM-300
and has a copy of the AM300 tape, he wants to know what I have found! I still have
atrial fibrillation, and it being a disease of the hearts electrical system, most
likely I will have to live with it. But I don't live with that breathing machine,
high blood pressure and arthritis of my knees any more!!! Being a Christian, I
believe Jesus did this to my body, but remember I had never heard of AM300 until
after requesting prayer for the healing of my body.
I also believe that I was led to this wonderful product. Not only do I take AM-300,
I now take Gold Plus, Shark Cartilage, Chlorella and Prosta Clear. And no, I did not
replace the medication with these products, I replaced the vitamins I used to
purchase from different vendors. I have been taking mega doses of vitamins for about
ten years. Where I used to take about 15 vitamins and supplement I now take 5.
I praise God that we have companies like Advantage Marketing Systems, Inc. that
offer such wonderful products. In closing I want to say, that I drink the water
(at least 8 glasses) and most of the time I do watch what I eat. But at least once
a week I have what I want and no one loves fried shrimp or fish like I do. I believe
that if it swims in the ocean it is destined to swim in cooking oil. After leaving
the doctor's office today my wife had a salad and I ate my fill of pizza.
