Three Generations Using the AIM Products

AIM Group Builder Wendy Hewett lives in Australia. She became a Member in 2003 after picking up a copy of Dr. Hagiwara’s book in a local store. Wendy had always been interested in health, so she was constantly on the lookout for products to improve her own health and that of her children.

The health benefits of barley grass grabbed her attention, especially the growth factor, so she immediately started taking AIM’s green barley powder along with giving it to two of her three teenage children. The third teen was living away from home at a boarding school but would eventually enjoy AIM nutrition as well.

Through Wendy’s efforts, she won a prize to an AIM conference held in Cronulla, Sydney. And as another way to share AIM goodness with her family, Wendy brought along her daughter, Raven, who loved taking the Garden Trio for breakfast.

Today, Wendy continues to work night shifts and attributes her good health to the daily intake of BarleyLife, LeafGreens, Cocoa LeafGreens, Herbal Fiberblend and ProPeas along with rubbing Mag-nificence magnesium lotion all over her body. Interestingly, after using Mag-nificence lotion, she massages the excess on her hands through her hair and leaves it in. She believes it’s the shea butter in the lotion that makes her hair feel extremely soft.

Wendy’s mother thought that once her grandchildren were old enough, they would stop taking the AIM products. But little did she realize that not only would they continue on this healthy path but also start their own children on the products.

In fact, Wendy’s AIM nutritional intake has translated into a “like mother, like daughter” situation. Raven now shares her mother’s daily products as well as fit ’n fiber with her three children and her partner, encouraging them to use the products diligently. The AIM products now have a generational following with Wendy, her three children and four grandchildren, all powering ahead today.

BarleyLife Helps Me to Live an Active Life

AIM Royal Emerald Director Susan Henriques has a long history with The AIM Companies™. An introduction to AIM back in 1992 turned her health around after being devastatingly ill for five years.

In the 1980s, Susan had been a very active woman, power walking 40 to 50 miles weekly. Then in the fall of 1987, she came down with what she thought was the flu. Feeling exhausted and with a fever and swollen lymph glands, Susan went to her doctor, but her situation only got worse.

“My muscles and joints began to hurt,” Susan recollected. “I became more and more tired.” As the weeks went by, she found it difficult to think clearly or put sentences together. And she began to experience short-term memory loss.

Susan visited 11 doctors and three hospitals over an 18-month period until finally being diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Essentially, Susan’s life as she knew it came to a halt, especially affecting the relationships with her husband, daughter and son. “I had long periods when I could not get out of bed,” Susan stated. “This went on for a few years.” It forced her to all but ignore her family.

For four painful years, Susan underwent regular testing and tried to find relief by taking antibiotics and antidepressants. But nothing helped until she and her husband attended a marriage ministry class, where the leader recommended that Susan try something: AIM’s barley grass powder.

After three months of taking one teaspoon a day, Susan felt some strength in her legs. And the results of her blood work were much improved. Seven months later, the pain began to go away, allowing her to skip the next doctor’s appointment and go on a vacation with her husband instead. Susan was finally able to enjoy a full and healthy life again.

Jumping ahead many years to early 2018, Susan contacted AIM to say how happy she was that BarleyLife has been certified gluten-free because she had been diagnosed with celiac disease in 2010. “I have taken as much as six tablespoons in a day and had no reaction,” Susan wrote. “It is such a comfort to me to know I can take it again. It’s been a blessing.”

A Promise Kept … Continue Striving

Shared by David Baxter, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

My wife, Helen Ruth (Hoff­man) Baxter was never short on ambition. After a successful venture selling Avon products, she ultimately joined AIM in 1987, working out of an office in our home. Her goal was to work full-time selling the wonderful AIM products. I assisted her whenever possible.

In just five years, she and I achieved the highest possible level in the organization, AIM Chairman’s Club Director. She humbly credited The AIM Companies’ product quality with her success, but her love for people and concern for their health were always foremost in her mind. Her first customers were those she had previously come in contact with through Avon.

Over the years, Helen vigorously studied the AIM Member Income Plan with the goal of maximizing earnings to someday become a Member of AIM’s Million Dollar Club. This was her dream and our goal. Unfortunately, before this goal could be reached Helen passed on at the age of 82.

Shortly before her death, I made a promise to her that I would do the best I could to accomplish our goal and become members of the Million Dollar Club. Although April 28, 2011, was the most disheartening day of my life because I lost my beautiful wife, Helen, after nearly 57 years of marriage, I was compelled to carry on our business and more determined than ever to complete the goal we had set.

In January of 2018, our goal was achieved and I was notified that we reached the Million Dollar Club. Although, Helen is no longer here to share this moment with me, I know she would be elated at our milestone.

Independence Day for AIM Members

The month of July holds a couple of “independent” holidays for AIM Members in North America. July 4 is Independence Day in the U.S., and July 1 is Canada Day, which some histories refer to as Canadian Independence Day. These are special days that celebrate the beginning of independent nations.The month of July holds a couple of “independent” holidays for AIM Members in North America. July 4 is Independence Day in the U.S., and July 1 is Canada Day, which some histories refer to as Canadian Independence Day. These are special days that celebrate the beginning of independent nations.

The idea of being independent is a desirable state for individuals as well. To not have to rely on something other than your own efforts and resourcefulness to maintain your well-being is a goal worth pursuing.

Looking back over the history of AIM through the eyes of Members, another day of independence has evolved over the years: the day a Member begins taking AIM nutrition. And Members have their own individual dates worth noting.  One of the many results of having your own “independence day” is that the majority of Members who choose to add AIM products to their “health care” program for life become, in a way, their own primary health care providers, who prescribe a healthy lifestyle that includes habits such as eating wholesome food, exercising and getting enough sleep along with supplemental nutrition from AIM.

Choosing this path does not mean that you don’t take medication when necessary. But for the most part, it does mean not having to be a statistic in surveys such as the following published in WebMD online1:

  • 55 percent of Americans regularly take a prescription medicine.  Between 1997 and 2016, the number of prescriptions filled for American adults and children rose 85 percent from 2.4 billion to 4.5 billion a year.
  • Among those who take prescription drugs, 53 percent get them from more than one health care provider.

Let Food Be Thy Medicine 

Hippocrates said it the best by stating that food is the medicine you need to stay healthy. Natural nutrients from wholesome food deliver the “ounce of prevention” that is worth “a pound of cure” when it comes to protecting yourself from disease and avoid being on long-term medications. Adding AIM nutrition to your intake increases the protection.

And the following AIM Members can attest to this … in their own words.

I’ve been an AIM Member for roughly 35 years now. I started with BarleyLife and Herbal Fiberblend and, over the years, have increased that to 10+ products that I take daily. I’m 75 and try to stay very active because moving keeps you going! I am not on ANY medications and hope I never shall be.
— Wendell Wamboldt, AIM Director

Having taken AIM products for 21 years, I owe my good health to AIM. I retired 18 years ago, and I am thankful that I have no aches or pains. And I’m not on any meds. I work at Living WELL, enjoying biking and kayaking. This summer, I’m using an early birthday present: my new paddleboard!
— Jan Baxter, AIM Director

My mom, Riek Bosman, is very active at 88. For example, she makes hundreds of Dutch boterkoek (butter cakes) that get sold at fundraisers. She’s a faithful BarleyLife user and takes a variety of other AIM products, including the Garden Trio, LeafGreens, CellSparc 360 and GinkgoSense. And, she isn’t on any medications!
— Rita Vandertil, Star Sapphire Director

Twenty-four years ago, a friend told me about AIM’s green juice powder. Soon, I was able to get off all three of the meds I was on at the time, and I also had no more pain in my fingers and knees. I am approaching my 78th birthday, and I’m on no meds and have no pain. I have all my “original” parts and feel fantastic!
— Barb Snodgrass, AIM Director

My 65-year-old sister, my 92-year-old father and I are all on BarleyLife and other AIM products. None of us are on any medication.
— Paula Bourque, AIM Member

When I was a child, a cancerous tumor left me legally blind in one eye, and I had numerous other illnesses. By the age of 30, I had had over 30 operations and later in life, I battled breast cancer … and won. I’m 79 now and not on any medications. I’ve have been maintaining my good health with the help of AIM products such as BarleyLife and Herbal Fiberblend.
— Betty Ann Brush, Artist and AIM Director

Product Certifications: Why They Matter

Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Kosher and Vegan

For consumers who want accessible information to assess products they pick up from store shelves or view online, certain certifications can be a deciding factor in making choices.

The same can be said for AIM independent distributors sharing the healthy benefits of AIM products: certifications matter. The AIM Companies recognizes their importance and has taken steps to certify the AIM lineup. Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Kosher and Vegan certifications help assist Members and those beginning to learn about AIM in choosing high-quality AIM supplements. Some certification logos are already printed on a variety of AIM product labels.

Non-GMO

Nature creates plants and animals that are NOT genetically modified organisms: Non-GMOs. Every AIM product is certified Non-GMO, one of several important certifications in regard to food and natural health products.

Unlike what occurs in nature, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are “bioengineered” plants or animals through the use of gene-splicing. Genetically modified foods remain a worldwide concern. The safety of consuming GMO food is unproven even though Americans have been eating genetically modified ingredients in most processed foods since 1996.

A wide range of environmental damage and health risks has been linked to GMO food. By 2020, all food makers in the USA will have to label bioengineered (BE) food and ingredients. Having bioengineered (BE) on the label instead of genetically modified organism (GMO) suggests the negative association that GMO has in the minds of people all around the world.

It’s worth repeating: every AIM product is certified Non-GMO.

Gluten-Free

Celiac disease is a widespread health problem, roughly affecting 1 in 100 people globally. Those with this disorder have to avoid foods that contain gluten because eating these proteins found in wheat and other grains can cause damage in the small intestine, leading to a number of uncomfortable symptoms and poor absorption of food nutrients.

Non-celiac gluten sensitivity has been deemed “The New Frontier of Gluten Related Disorders” in a 2013 study, so gluten issues are affecting even more people. Being able to identify gluten-free foods and supplements is of utmost importance to anyone with gluten sensitivity.

The AIM Companies has tested for the presence of gluten in all of its products. The vast majority tested gluten-free. Members and those new to AIM can refer to the and AIM website to easily identify all of these gluten-free products, including BarleyLife powder, which is a safe “superfood” for anyone with gluten issues.

Kosher

Kosher food laws set a high bar in terms of cleanliness, purity and quality, so people not only of the Jewish faith look for the OK symbol on labels. The AIM Companies has achieved kosher certification for the Garden TrioBarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets—as well the BarleyLife powder in the 180-gram canisters and sample packs and will continue to expand kosher certification to its product lineup. Watch for the OK symbol.

Vegan

For anyone following a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, it is essential to know what can and cannot be consumed. The certified vegan logo indicates products that do not contain animal products or by-products and have not been tested on animals. All of the AIM products that are certified vegan can be easily identified with this logo on the AIM website and AIM product catalog.

As time and label space allow, more of these certification logos will appear on AIM product labels. In the meantime, if you are an independent distributor, let people know about product certifications whenever you share your knowledge of AIM nutrition. Certifications matter.

Never Give Up Hope!

Shared by Katherine “Cass” Brown Capel, AIM Director

Cass Brown CapelI was a “Taco Bell Queen” and “Diet Coke Drunk” before being diagnosed with estrogen negative stage II ductal carcinoma breast cancer in 1987 at age 32.  A friend recommended I talk to a woman named Julia Braddock.  Julia had gone through the Gerson juicing program and was cancer-free without undergoing chemotherapy. When I finally reached Julia, she told me about a barley grass juice powder that had drastically reduced her juicing because of the incredible convenience it offered. I took it for a few months, but I didn’t see Julia until I returned some AIM nutritional tapes to her four years later.

When I saw Julia again, I didn’t recognize her—she had lost 10 years!  I said, “Your skin is so beautiful.” She said, “You know, barley juice retards your aging.” I said, “No, it reverses it!”  I was 36 at the time and thought, if barley juice does that for your skin, I’m in.  Sure enough, people started giving me compliments on my skin and complexion, asking me what I was doing and so I started referring them to Julia. After several months, Julia called and said, “You need to be a Member so you can win contests and earn commissions.”  So, I joined AIM and began holding Monday “koffee klatsches” so people could ask questions.

The Hope

With my cancer diagnosis in 1987, I was strongly admonished against ever having children. This was repeated by my radiation oncologist at my last appointment in 1993. She cautioned me not to have children unless I was willing to have someone else raise my child, since my cancer was aggressive.  So I grieved the loss of not being able to have children.  But as I facilitated breast cancer groups in the following years, I watched as the tide of medical opinion gradually became more favorable toward premenopausal breast cancer patients having children.

John and I saw the first fertility specialist in 1998, and were told there was virtually no chance.  Our next appointment was in January 1999 with one of the best fertility doctors in the region. He was RUTHLESS. He said that at our ages that there was less than a 4% chance of spontaneous conception, and a 20% chance the child would have Down syndrome. He asked incredulously, why would I want to mess that up as a 12-year cancer survivor?

His words stung me. I walked out of his office with a resolve that I had never experienced before in my life. Any ambivalence I’d had about having children vanished. I felt a warmth, almost a fire, traveling up my spine into my heart.

Within a month, I was pregnant.  On November 11, 1999, we were blessed with Ariana, weighing 11 pounds, 3 ounces and measuring 22 inches.  It was a natural birth and she was born without anesthesia.

As a baby, Ariana would lick the barley powder off of her high-chair table top.  Last spring she finished her junior year with all A’s and worked as a trainer at a horse ranch the past summer. She is a diligent knitter in the winter, making cable-knit sweaters and wool socks for her friends.

Why was I able to stay cancer-free and and have a healthy baby when all the experts said it wasn’t possible?  I cleaned up my diet.  I took BarleyLife.  I used Renewed Balance during my pregnancy up until the eighth month, which is also good for your thyroid. There are other possible reasons, but one thing is for sure: I’ll never be without my AIM BarleyLife.

PS: Never Give Up!

A Love Relationship with Mag-nificence CWR

Shared by Jacquelyn Frimpter, AIM Director

A few years ago, I was taking my morning walk with my dog. All was going well when I suddenly stepped wrong and twisted my ankle. But I continued our walk without incident.

I had a busy day scheduled, which began at my church where I had to do some computer work. As I was leaving the secretary said to me “Jacquie, you weren’t limping when you came in.”

My ankle had begun to feel very uncomfortable. So instead of completing my day’s tasks, I decided to head back home. By the time I got home, the pain was so bad I literally had to crawl into my house. Once inside, I elevated my leg and tried lymph massage but without much success. I was in agony, so I called my husband and he came home to help me.

We did some soaking with hot and cold water. Suddenly I remembered that I had AIM’s Cell Wellness Restorer (now replaced with improved Mag-nificence CWR) in my cupboard. I didn’t know much about it but had been to an AIM celebration and remembered hearing good things about CWR, so why not try it?

We soaked my ankle in the CWR for about 30 minutes. Then later at bedtime, I added it to my bath water and again soaked for about 30 minutes.

As a side note, I had planned to meet a friend the following day to go shopping and have lunch. I was sure this would not be possible and yet when I woke the next morning, I had no pain in my ankle. But I wrapped it with an elastic wrap just for support, put on my shoes and went to meet my friend. We walked all afternoon. I eventually had to take off the wrap because it was coming apart anyway. My pain was gone. Praise the Lord!

Mag-nificence CWR is a constant in my cupboards. I continue to soak with it in my baths. CWR and I have a love relationship!

NOTE: Mag-nificence topical magnesium is not only available in the CWR bath additive, but also in a moisturizing shea butter and coconut oil lotion and a convenient-size spray.

I love AIM’s Mag-nificence lotion for my sore muscles.
