3:55 am
2,996 people died in the attacks. now looking back we can reflect on how much our country has been reshaped by the events of that horrible day. it's a question we still ask. where are you that day? javier was 13 and at home in new york when america was attacked. >> it made me feel afraid to go out. army, he's about to deploy to afghanistan, 15 years after the war on terror began. >> it's a little nerve-wracking. but i'm confident it's going to be a good experience for me. i can go there and help out with the mission. >> the continuing u.s. mission in afghanistan is just one of the lingering reminders of september 11th. >> that day changed all of us. it changed america. and it changed the

3:57 am
americans came to learn the color coded terror alert system. phrases like "see something, say something" became part of our vernacular. >> i think 9/11 elevated the role and responsibility of literally hundreds of thousands of americans who go to work every day in the government. their job prior to 9/11 was to keep us safe, but there was a new level of alert and commitment in a fighter jets patrolling our skies, long airport security lines, pat-downs to enter stadiums. today osama bin laden is dead. and we speak of the isis threat, not al qaeda. and americans like javier are still deploying to afghanistan. >> my biggest motivation is my wife and my family. i do this for them, to

so much for me to be here now. >> yes, we still talk about where we were that september day. we also ask, are we safer? you were there at the beginning. 15 years later you look around you. do you feel like we all are still living the lessons of 9/11 or have moved past it? >> i would like to think we have convinced ourselves that we are as resilient as advertised. we're not going to sacrifice our liberties, not sacrifice our privacy because we're afraid. what the terrorists have any understood and will never understand is america is not going to surrender their freedom because we just don't live in fear. >> 15 years. it's been a long time but the pain still as fresh as the day it happened. that will do it on friday night. i'm lester hold. for all of us on "nbc nightly news," thanks for watching and good

4:01 am
story, if i have to say so myself. at about 16 years old, i was actually paralyzed by a tumor in my third vertebra. they rushed me up to riley children's hospital up in indianapolis, indiana. specialists told me that i'd probably never walk again. i spent quite a few years laid up in the hospital. it was a miraculous recovery. a surgeon came in from germany. they removed my third vertebra and literally built me a new vertebra using my pelvis -- used one-inch squares and built me a new vertebra. well, mike, i was in the hospital at 16, and after the surgery, they put me in a to toe, and when i left the hospital, i weighed 105 pounds. now, a lot of people hear that story -- and i'm very proud of being able to recover from that. but that was just the first step in my life into the health industry. as i was going through rehabilitation for my back, my father went into the hospital for his first open-heart surgery at the age of 43. so, mike, that really scared me to death. so i decided right then to take
4:02 am
our family history, and try to understand what was going on. i mean, both my parents had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease. you know, i had back problems. you name it, we had it. so if hereditary was a part of the issue, i needed to make sure that i was doing everything that i could to rebuild my body and take care of this body that god gave us. i went back to college, studied exercise and nutrition, sports medicine. i rebuilt my body, and through that exercise and nutrition program, mike, i built my body california and became one of the 16 original "american gladiator" contenders. so i'm living proof that you can overcome adversity. but, mike, early on in my career, i got to noticing some things. had back problems. i always suffered with back problems. well, i'll be honest with you. growing -- you know, being a gladiator, going through college, i abused my body. >> yeah, i've seen that show. you probably took some abuse in that. >> i got beat up pretty good,
4:03 am
got beat up pretty good. i got a -- i tore a left rotator cuff. i tore my right knee cartilage. i twisted my ankles. i had concussions. plus, remember, i had back surgery, so -- >> right. right. at 16. >> at 16, so i had always struggled with back pain. now, you talk about god in a life. i don't believe in coincidence. i believe god plans everything. i was actually up in boston during a production, and i was telling one of the cameramen about this story i'm just telling you. i said, "man, my rotator's hurt, and my--" you ow 40 years old, and if i don't figure out how to get rid of some of this pain, i'm not sure what's gonna happen." >> okay. >> and being in the industry, mike, i've tried all the products. so trust me -- nothing worked. well, while i was telling this story, a woman comes to me, and she says, "here, try this." >> this is the product we're talking about. >> this is the product we're talking about, the formula we're talking about, and i said, "well, what's this?" and she started to go over the ingredient, and i stopped her, and i said, "ma'am, you know, i've been doing this for 25 years, and i've seen the best of
4:04 am
nothing worked." >> right. >> she said, "try this." and i said, "i just told you nothing worked." she said, "i'm telling you, try this. it will work." and i said, "what have i got to lose?" she gave it to me for free. mike, i'm not exaggerating. i went home -- the first couple of weeks, didn't notice anything. about the third or fourth week, i thought i started to notice something. maybe i was feeling a little better. about the fifth week -- and a lot of people don't realize this, but about the fifth week, my wife said, "jim, did you notice that you did not get up in the middle of the night last night? it had never dawned on me that my pain -- my shoulder pain and my knee pain and my back pain -- was keeping me from sleeping. so the next thing you know, five weeks into it, i got up and i said, "wow. i don't have any pain." mike, i'm telling you, i've been taking this product now for almost five years, and at nearly 50 years old, i do not have a pain or an ache in my body -- nothing. >> you had mentioned to me yesterday when we were talking
4:05 am
that are on the market, some of these drugs that can cause some severe side effects. in fact, we were talking -- you were telling me that these labels say "may cause death." >> all right. have you ever listened -- and i encourage someone watching the program right now -- before you take a pharmaceutical drug, i'm gonna ask you to do one very simple thing. tune in to your evening news tonight. tune in the news and listen to the drug ads, listen to the disclaimers, and if you don't laugh at the end of one of those disclas, you're on the wrong planet. because my wife and i listen to the disclaimers, and sometimes i'm thinking i'm getting punked. >> right. >> i mean i'm listening, and it causes diarrhea, headaches, blindness, and if you don't -- hard of hearing, and if you go blind, it may not come back. and at the very end, "and in severe cases, may cause death." well, mike, i'm not sure about you but, that's a pretty harmful side effect. >> well, some of these products, and depending on who you read and what report you read, have killed anywhere -- upwards of between 50,000 and 100,000 people, not because they had
4:06 am
other disease -- because they were just in pain. these people -- they wanted to get out of pain, and they died. >> let me give you -- exactly. let me give you a perfect example. the drug you're talking about -- my sister-in-law is a pharmaceutical rep, and i was blessed because i was trying to do everything that i could to not only get out of pain, but i still do a lot of training. and every person that i train is living in pain. as we get older, everybody has knee pain, joint pain, back pain. i don't care what it is, everybody that i talk to has pain. and my sister-in-law was a rep nsaids, one of these pharmaceutical drugs. she happened to have called us about a month before they pulled them from the market, and i had really seriously thought about taking these nsaids because i was in serious pain. nothing was working. and i know that there's people out there watching right now that have tried everything. nothing was working. >> right. >> and mary says, "jim, don't take it. they're about to pull it off the market because that product has been proven to kill thousands and cause hundreds of millions of people very severe
4:07 am
effects, including death." mike, these drugs are chemicals. they're manufactured from chemicals. let me give you a good example, and that's why we're going to be here today. i have a really good friend of mine, and his wife is a -- i'd say a part-time triathlete. she's a stay-at-home mom, 47 years old, has got three kids, but she loves triathlons. i was actually at a birthday -- or a christmas party, and we were just talking, and she comes up to me, and she overheard us talking about vioxx. and she said, "boy, i hated when because that stuff really worked." and i said, "robin, did you listen to the disclaimer?" she says, "jim, i don't care if it does cause death. it worked." and i said, "robin, i want you to think about something. what if -- what if i could give you an all-natural joint-relief product that worked just as good, maybe even better than the pharmaceutical drug?" >> and it won't cause death. >> "and it won't cause death. i guarantee it." >> without a possibility of causing death. >> all natural. and she said, "jim, i've tried
