Planting Seeds of Hope

Shared by Cindy Ponchot-Watson, AIM Star Sapphire Director in Anderson, Indiana.   

On a cold morning in January, I sat looking at two seed catalogs that were sent to me the very first week after Christmas. “That’s too early for gardening,” some of you may think. However, true gardeners start to dream and plan their gardens while winter snow and ice form on the barren ground. Some even buy their seed at that time.

It was 1996 when someone handed me a book about barley juice and carrot powder. That book, or “seed” as I now call it, saved my life. After reading that book, I vowed that if I ever got cancer, I would refuse traditional treatment.

Twelve years after being given that book, I was diagnosed with incurable cancer. Earlier that spring, AIM Directors Eli and Barbara Hershberger shared a testimony of hope with me. Eli had used the AIM products to improve his health after a perforated bowel. Now the “soil” of my heart was fertile, and I was ready to hear and utilize the information I had received.

It was the AIM products that helped me detox, nourish and rebuild my immune system so that my body could heal itself.

“It’s been 10 years since my doctors said I was cancer free!” Since that time, I’ve planted hundreds of seeds in other’s lives, hoping that when they encounter their own health challenges, they will remember the seeds of HOPE that I planted in them.

I did not intend to build an AIM business as I already owned two businesses when I was told about The AIM Companies™. It was the furthest thing from my mind. But after the products helped improve my health, I had to share what had happened in my life. That’s the best part about AIM, planting seeds of HOPE with others, and waiting to see the harvest.


Don’t be afraid to plant seeds, even when you can’t see if the “soil’s” ready. A harvest will come! I’m living proof of it!
