Our Journey with AIM


Our first introduction to a green juice product was in 1987, when Mary was handed a container of powder. She was pregnant with our youngest daughter and was told it would be good to take for her pregnancy and nursing. After taking it for months, she stopped as we thought it was for pregnancy only. Little did we know then the POWER of what would become BarleyLife.

For the next seven years, we spent thousands of dollars on vitamins, minerals, Chinese herbs and chiropractors. Then in March 1994, we spoke with Edna Smith (Chairman’s Club Director) at a Toronto Health Show, where her booth featured Herbal Fiberblend and a green juice powder. After our order arrived, the green powder turned out to be the same product Mary used in 1987.

From 1994 to 2000, we as a family embraced the AIM products. After missing school for a month because of colds and throat infections, our children started taking the Garden Trio in February 1995. It was like a night-and-day turnaround. For the next ten months, our children didn’t miss any days at school. Surprisingly, we all received the benefits of renewed health.

January 2000 was a turning point for us. It was when we truly realized the AIM products were helping our family. For six years, we had maintained our health. Asthma, sinus infections two to three times a year, etc., were things of the past.

Our friends often complained about illnesses, and once they recovered from one, they just caught something else. We decided to share the products even though we had no intention of doing the business. We have held meetings in our community and had a booth at various yearly events. We participate in teleclasses and webinars, read health-related articles and attend AIM Celebrations. Our first was Nashville in 2000. We paid our own way to attend. It was so amazing listening to the speakers, meeting all the new faces and seeing and talking with people that had been featured in Living Well Magazine. It was very exciting to be a part of that event. We have only missed three AIM Celebrations since 2000 due to family weddings. Seventeen years later, we are excited to attend Nashville 2017.

Our sincere thanks go to The AIM Companies’ owners and staff, who are always willing to give a helping hand. They also have excellent products that actually make us “Feel the Difference.” Our upline sponsor, Edna Smith, has been very willing to support us in whatever ways possible. Dr. John Shewfelt (Chairman’s Club Director) is always available to answer questions related to health issues. We send a huge thank you to all our downline Members who have trusted us. Because AIM is our business, we have made special friends within the AIM community, which we hold very dear to our hearts.

We want to THANK AIM for touching our lives with health and wealth. In Partnership for Life!
