Generations of Nutrition

Shared by AIM Directors Heidi and Mike Toft

How many of your family members are AIM nutritional product users? In my family, I love the fact that we have four generations enjoying the AIM products.

My parents intro­duced us to The AIM Companies™ in 1998, when my father was diagnosed with lymphoma. They still promote their favorite products, loving it when people find renewed energy, lowered blood pres­sure and reduced pain.

My 96-year-old grand­mother faithfully takes BarleyLife capsules and ProPeas. When our children reached six months old, they loved having BarleyLife on a spoon with some juice to wash it down. Our son now has his AIM stash at college.

My niece, a senior in a college nursing program, sends me selfies of her espresso and CoCoa Leaf­Greens concoctions. My brother and sister also have their favorites and often share AIM with their friends and coworkers. We are truly an AIM Family!

In addition to the AIM products tasting good and creating positive changes in our health, I believe there are more good reasons why it’s possible for people from 96 all the way down to 6 months to benefit from them.

The purity of the AIM ingredients means a wide range of people can trust what they consume. AIM whole-food powders are safe for the very young. I feel good about products that don’t contain harmful pesticides and herbicides. The gluten-free products mean many of us can enjoy the nutrition we need without uncomfortable side effects.

Another reason AIM supports families is the wealth of available information. When we have ques­tions, we can call our friendly, knowledgeable company reps at any time to get personalized answers. Product datasheets, podcasts, email up­dates, YouTube videos, Chrysalis Networx and the Living Well magazine ensure all Members of the AIM Family have access to product knowledge.

Lastly, I’d like to thank the leadership of AIM for being wise and judicious in their company practices and policies. The average network marketing company survives for only a few years. AIM, how­ever, has been enriching lives since 1982.

The legacy created in our extensive AIM family is not only something to be proud of but also something to pass on to as many people as we can. AIM is a solid, safe, family-friendly company that we can rely on to be there for future generations.

Planting Seeds of Hope

Shared by Cindy Ponchot-Watson, 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!

AIM for Your Own Business

CarolynThere is an amazing income level that is possible with AIM because when you are excited about what the products can do for your health, you can’t help but share it. I’ve done this with countless people all around the world. Not only has it put a marvelous income in my life above and beyond anything that I could ever have dreamed about, there are many millionaires among the people in my downline. I don’t really like talking about the financial side because it is really about health, and if you have your health, nothing else matters. But there is an amazing amount of money that comes to you as a result of sharing good health with other people. I’m in the Eight Million Dollar Club, which has totally blown me away.
Carolyn Kling, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

DebraWhen I first started taking AIM products, someone asked me if I wanted to do a business. I said no because I was the manager of a small health club at the time. I didn’t want anything else on my plate. The next thing you know, I’m mixing my BarleyLife up at work, drinking it three times a day, and everybody wanted to know what I was taking. All of a sudden, I’m selling the products. AIM sent me a check one month, so I called them up and told them they made a mistake. That’s when they explained how the marketing (income) plan works. We had been praying for a way for me to stay home with the kids and not have to put them in daycare. Because of my AIM income, I was able to quit my job. Within the first year, I became a Director. It’s been a wonderful way to earn an income and help people to become healthy.
Debra Pugh, AIM Director

PetraAIM has been a great opportunity to have a side business on our farm. We sell AIM products in our store because they tie in with our organic beliefs. I can approach our customers when they come in looking for better food, introducing them to supplemental AIM nutrition. Over the next few years I plan to grow my AIM business even more because there will come a time when farm work will be too hard for my husband and me. My goal is to just do AIM and help people to live healthier lives.

The AIM Journey

Sometimes your journey in life can feel as though you are riding on a train, rolling along the tracks toward your destination. The railroad you find yourself traveling upon may or may not be the tracks you desire.

The compartment you ride in could be coach, business or first class, depending on your initial lot in life perhaps. Along the way, there are usually many stops of interest, distraction and confusion, but eventually you get back on the rails and continue on your way.

There may come a time when you veer off on a totally different track, perhaps because of a fluke that hits a switch and aims you in a direction you never knew existed. This is the journey many AIM Members find themselves on, as though the railway changed from Amtrak to the AIM track, making a huge impact on their lives as the years roll by.

A Journey of Opportunity

When you board the AIM train, a number of opportunities present themselves.

You have access to high-quality supplements that can improve and maintain your health. A lifestyle choice of taking AIM whole-food concentrates and natural health products increases the intake of nutrients that your body thrives on. Good health is one of life’s greatest gifts and being on track with AIM helps to keep you on your journey in good health.

As a Member, you can also have your own business by sharing the benefits of AIM nutrition with others. One of the many positive results is being a witness to health improvements in so many people. It’s a platform with limitless possibilities of direction and expansion.

The more new Members you bring aboard, the greater your smart start rewards and monthly commissions. And since its inception, The AIM Companies has never missed a monthly payment to AIM independent distributors, so you can depend on this reliable schedule.

As a Member of AIM’s worldwide network marketing business, you also become part of a worldwide association: the AIM family. This means you are never alone in your endeavors. To help keep you on track, support from your upline, AIM and Chrysalis Networx is available throughout your journey.

Along the way, railcars continue to be added to the limitless length of the AIM train, so there will always be room for more passengers. And Members will always be welcome aboard.

The Finn Family’s Miracle

Finn-momSometimes a mother’s in­stinct works wonders. Such is the case with Tamara Finn, an AIM Wholesale Member in Ohio. If it weren’t for Tamara’s enduring faith and motherly intuition, her son, Richard, would most likely not be alive today. Even when doctors gave her a “do it or he will die” ultimatum, Tamara had other ideas.

“Back in June 2010,” Tamara related, “Richard noticed a pea-sized lump in his groin, so he went to our family doctor, who gave him antibiotics and pain medicine as well as ultrasound that showed he had a hydrocele, causing fluid buildup in the scrotum. Three months went by with several visits to doctors, but he wasn’t getting any better, and the lump continued to get bigger. Richard went to a urologist and had blood work and more tests done that only confirmed the initial diagnosis.”

In the meantime, Tamara had begun doing research because Richard was getting sicker and sicker. “His feet would turn purple,” Tamara stated. “He was so pale and had little energy. And the lump was growing so large that Richard couldn’t even wear jeans to work, only sweat pants.” It was Richard’s father who had been monitoring the growth of this mass.

The situation continued for months and by December, Richard was suffering horribly. His doctors wanted to do more tests but not until January 2011. “That’s when I had enough,” Tamara exclaimed. On Christmas Eve, they took him to the hospital. “It was in the emergency room that I first saw his tumor by accident. By then, it was the size of a small basketball.”

Tamara told the doctors that they wouldn’t leave until Richard was given a contrast CAT scan. It would later reveal that he had cancerous growths throughout the skeletal muscles in his body, including lesions on all of his bones and a 6 cm mass pressing on the aorta and his lungs, which explained the discoloring in his feet from poor circulation. Richard had one of the rarest types of adult cancer: embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. Their family doctor and a urologist had totally misdiagnosed his condition.

“Richard was hospitalized for around two months,” Tamara stated, “and given chemotherapy that made him increasingly sick. And they were feeding him snacks of cookies, cupcakes and ice cream. I told them they were actually feeding the cancer with sugar. They asked me how I knew this, and I replied ‘I’m not stupid. I did the research.’ And I made them stop.”

Tamara began bringing wholesome food to the hospital. Through their church, Tamara had met AIM Star Sapphire Director Cindy Ponchot, who told Tamara about her own successful battle against cancer using AIM nutrition. With the help of some fund-raisers, Tamara was able to purchase high-quality organic food and AIM supplements for Richard. “Of course, when I told the doctors about AIM nutrition, they said it wouldn’t help,” Tamara noted.

After around eight treatments, Richard told his mother that he couldn’t take any more chemotherapy, even though he had around 40 more treatments remaining and radiation that would follow. He had gone from about 180 pounds down to 115.

Finn-at-180-and-115

“The chemo was killing him,” Tamara said. “The doctors had originally told us that Richard would live for only a month, but with chemotherapy and radiation, maybe six months.” But Tamara told her husband, “Richard’s not going to die. He’s going to be a miracle. So don’t worry.”

After a heart-to-heart talk with Richard, Tamara, her husband, family and friends all supported his decision to stop chemotherapy. “I still had an overwhelming feeling that he was going to be a miracle but was still scared to death as any mother would be,” Tamara said.

The doctors disagreed, noting in Richard’s medical chart that by them refusing to continue with chemo or radiation, Richard was going to die. She angrily told them to never say this to her son, and that they were not God and only He would decide the fate of Richard.

Along with a strict, organic diet that included wild salmon and raw vegetables, Tamara and her husband had begun giving Richard AIM smoothies three to four times a day while hospitalized and later at home. “I gave him a blend of products, such as BarleyLife Xtra, Just Carrots, RediBeets, as well as AIMega, FloraFood and PrepZymes. Digesting food used up much of his energy, so the digestive enzymes really helped his immune system fight the cancer,” Tamara explained.

By the second month of being on this diet, Richard went back for a checkup, and the doctors couldn’t find any cancer in his body. “They attributed this to the initial chemo therapy and said the cancer would return within 90 days and he would die unless treatment continued, but we knew better,” Tamara said. “Seven years later and now 29 years old, Richard is still cancer-free.”

There’s even more to Tamara’s belief that her son was going to be a miracle. His physicians said he would never have children, but Richard is the proud father of a daughter named Mya. After Tamara posted his cancer story with side-by-side photos of a terribly ill Richard and a terribly happy Richard with his newborn daughter, fiancé and stepson, people from all around the world have been contacting her. And she gives them health consultations for free. Tamara believes in sharing miracles.

Ruth’s Million Dollar Journey

Being among the Elite group of AIM Members in the Million Dollar Club goes far beyond a dollar figure. It’s really about all the people you have been able to help along the way. This is what you truly come to understand from Chairman’s Club Director Ruth Overholt, who reached this AIM milestone in May 2018.

ruth-o

Interestingly enough, Ruth and her husband, Andrew, who predeceased her in 2011, both grew up on farms, where they learned about the importance of wholesome, natural food. “My husband was a vegetable farmer,” Ruth stated. “We always wanted to eat healthily.” The Overholts raised their family with this healthy lifestyle choice in mind. And when they lived in Southern Indiana, they even ran a store that sold fresh produce to their local community.

When it came to other healthy ways to help people, Andrew was licensed to provide colon cleanses, operating a rejuvenation therapy clinic for many years. “People would come from all over to get help with their digestive systems,” Ruth said. And a chance introduction to AIM fit perfectly into their aim to improve people’s health.

“We were in Texas on a trip one time,” Ruth said, “We were staying with family and noticed this container of green powder on a shelf. We were told how good BarleyLife was for your health by AIM Director Evelyn Miller, our sponsor, and that’s how we joined AIM and then found out about Herbal Fiberblend.”

When Andrew added Herbal Fiberblend to his customers’ colon-cleansing regimen, the results were astounding. Word of its effectiveness spread like wildfire as did the growth of their AIM business.

Given the Overholts knowledge of healthy food, providing BarleyLife as follow-up nutrition to colon cleanses made perfect sense. “Of course, AIM nutrition also helped to maintain our health over the years,” Ruth added.

To this day, Ruth continues to take AIM products. “I take a heaping teaspoon of BarleyLife twice a day,” she stated. “People marvel at my health. I’m 91, my blood work is normal, and I have been helping my daughter with her cleaning business for over six years.” For Ruth Overholt, it’s all about helping people.

And one of the many beneficial results of helping others to improve their health with AIM nutrition is opening the door to the Million Dollar Club. Welcome, Ruth Overholt!

To Blog or Not to Blog

In the movie, Contagion, Elliot Gould’s character provides a dismissive view of blogs when he says, “Blogging is not writing. It’s graffiti with punctuation.”

Here at the BarleyLife Blog, it is hoped that the words that have appeared here over the years have moved beyond this negative perspective of unasked for spray-painted designs and have been punctuated by some wishfully interesting articles and useful information. This has always been the goal.

The thing about blogs is that they have a short shelf life. Blogs are custom built in the internet age of instant information and on to the next thing. Unlike graffiti, not a lot of blogs stick to anybody’s wall. It’s a case of read and move on.

That’s why this blog is going to be a little different. It’s going to be a trip down the memory lane of BarleyLife blogs, which could be seen as AIM blowing its own blog horn or simply as an easy way to refocus on some of the good stuff that may have gotten away.

The BarleyLife Blog Past

 Personal Successes and Healthy Cells

Right off the bat, the best way to go on about the benefits of BarleyLife is to hear from some of the many people who have been helped. Here are some personal “Reflections on BarleyLife.”

The Healthy Cell Concept has always been front and center in the AIM belief system because healthy cells are the goal of a healthy lifestyle that includes AIM Nutrition that works! The blog “Healthy Cells” revisits this concept

Behind the Curtain and Improvements

It’s always interesting to have an idea of what goes into making high-quality supplements, so have a look “Behind the Scenes at AIM.”

Through the years of AIM’s existence, improvements are always aimed for however naturally possible. Here’s a blog example in “BarleyLife Now with More Chlorophyll.”

Drinks Are on Us

Going back to December 2014 adds a little fizz for a blog from the past. With the “5 Reasons to Quit Drinking Soda” there’s lots of evidence to avoid drinking these intentionally pleasant, fizzy, sugar-filled beverages that just aren’t good for you.

Sport drinks continue to be marketed, but none match AIM Peak Endurance. And “5 Reasons Why Peak Endurance Is Better Than Regular Sports Drinks” from February 2015 explains it all. (By the way, an improvement to Peak Endurance provides 200 mg of ATP per serving.)

Some Essentials

What are the essential fats that every body needs daily? The answer lies in “Who Needs Fatty Acids?

The essentials of understanding and combating joint issues are addressed in “The Essentials of Frame Essentials.” Each ingredient is examined for its beneficial properties that promote healthy joints.

Questions?

People have a lot of questions about natural health products, and AIM Members are no exception as seen in this Q & A blog.

One question that keeps being asked is an organic one, so a blog was written to answer “The Organic Question.”

Let’s Make It Personal

Along with questions, people have many stories about how they became AIM Members. Here’s one of those tales that became a blog.

As previously mentioned, a blog of words only goes so far, and it continues to be true that “Actions Speak Louder than Words” even though it’s in a blog.

Looking at and into Supplements

The supplemental choices available also require a question as to how natural they actually are, and AIM gets to the heart of the matter in “Supplements . . . Natural or Synthetic?

Not everyone agrees that supplements are beneficial. Opinions on both sides of the argument have been going on for years. AIM decided that it was a good time for a blog about making a case for supplements.

Doctor’s Orders

The medical community is slowly but surely wrapping its mind around the vital importance of nutrition, especially regarding a diet that reduces meat intake. Some of the doctors at the forefront of this movement in the right direction are revealed in the “Going Plant-Based” blog.

Here’s a suggestion from Dr. Michael Greger that we recommend you try only at home, “Testing Your pH with Purple Cabbage” or you can use the less colorful but effective AIM pH test strips (blog coming soon , , , or not).

Healthy or Not?

The subject of wheat grew exponentially when a heart doctor associated its intake with growing bellies. Borrowing from Shakespeare once again, “To Wheat or Not to Wheat” that is the question.

 Some people consider sleep to be a waste of time, trying to snooze as little as possible to get the most out of their daily hours. Hmm . . . probably of case of “You Snooze You Lose” syndrome . . . .worth blogging about no less.
