Life Sketch of Leora at Age 100

Leora Morton Gertsch Collins Ward has lived a long and interesting yet challenging life for over 100 years. Born in Mapleton, Utah, Leora was an exceptional student who would go on to become a teacher.

Leora has nine children and has outlived three loving husbands. Her second was in the Air Force, a career that took them overseas to live in Morocco, Africa.

Who would have guessed that 1986 would be the year that many life changes would happen for Leora just by attending an AIM home meeting conducted by Teresa Schumacher.

BarleyLife changed Leora and her family’s lives for the better, experiencing many health benefits from AIM’s nutrient-rich, green powder as well as Herbal Fiberblend. By sharing AIM nutrition and the business opportunity with family and friends, Leora quickly became a Director.

Many years later when Teresa Schumacher realized Leora had moved back to St. George, Utah, and was living in an assisted living facility, she had to go visit her. Leora asked Teresa to bring books that included “Cleansing the Body and the Colon” to share with some of the residents.

Leora would say this resident needs BarleyLife or this one can’t go to the bathroom and needs Herbal Fiberblend. At her 100th birthday celebration in December 2019, there were many references to both of these AIM products from her children and grandchildren.

Even as a centenarian, Leora is perky and very alert, and she continues to take her AIM products. Blessed with good health, she has always remained positive even through trials and challenges. When asked about the secret to her long life, without hesitating, Leora replied, “BarleyLife!”

  1. My name is STELLA and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I want to give my testimony about Herbal Fiberblend. For 50 years I had a problem going to the bathroom, sometimes I would go a whole week without having a bowel movement. One day I felt I could not breathe, so my son took me to the emergency room. They ran all kinds of tests but could not find anything wrong with me. Finally the doctor asked when my last bowel movement was and I said about 10 days earlier. He ran some tests came and told me, “Your problem is you are full of excrement, we need to give you an enema and will keep you until you have a BM.” It took 3 enemas before my colon worked, after that he gave some kind of laxative and fiber. Once I found Herbal Fiberblend, within 3 months of using it 3 times a day I now go regularly all the time. I highly recommend it. NOTE: AIM does NOT recommend using Herbal Fiberblend 3 times per day.
