Natural Nutrition from AIM

Shared by Rebecca Liu, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

Since joining The AIM Companies (AIM) in 1988, we have benefited a lot! Not only financially, but more importantly, we have learned so many concepts about maintaining good health through the use of natural nutrition from AIM. And I have a number of experiences that I would like to share.

In April 2017, I broke out in hives, so on some parts of my body, large areas of rashes and bumps appeared on my skin. Some looked like big mosquito bites that were red, itchy and swollen; the worst were near my waist. These eruptions popped up usually in the middle of every night. It was really annoying!

I went to a pharmacy to ask what I should do, and the pharmacist gave me an antihistamine, which is a drug used to treat allergic reactions. I only tried it once and didn’t want to use it anymore because I didn’t believe allopathic medicine would cure this skin problem.

Later, it occurred to me that I could apply Mag-nificence lotion to the affected area. After about 10 minutes, the redness, burning and swelling disappeared and the itching stopped. I continued using AIM’s topical magnesium for a few months and got rid of this skin problem. No more suffering during the night. Another great benefit is that magnesium helps you sleep, so I get a good night’s sleep. It’s so great . . . killing two birds with one stone.

For many years, I had a poorly functioning digestive system. Although many others suffer from constipation, my problem was loose, watery bowel movements. I had to go to the bathroom five or six times a day, even once or twice during the middle of the night. Again, it was very annoying. Not long ago, I started taking FloraFood on a regular basis. Wow! A few days later I was having regular bowel movements once or twice a day.

I also treasure Composure. I take two capsules before bedtime. It helps improve the quality of my sleep. I feel much better, more refreshed and full of energy the morning after having a deep sleep throughout the night.

From all of these experiences I’ve learned “The body is the best doctor, and food is the best medicine.” Hurray! Long Live AIM!

Travel Plans? Stay Healthy!

In North America, summer is on the way. It’s a typical time of year to take a vacation. What’s more, leisure time that involves traveling to familiar, new or exotic places is usually something that most people daydream about and look forward to regardless of the season. It’s all about getting away from it all.

Some people set out on vacation with a drugstore supply of medications just in case they get sick along with any medical prescriptions. Others may have to scramble for medicine if the symptoms of common travel ailments stop them in their tracks. And some cast their fate to the wind and just go. AIM people pack prevention in the form of “Nutrition that Works” to protect their health before, during and after their travels.

Packing AIM Prevention

For any journey, getting there and back in good shape is desired by all who travel. But it doesn’t always work out that way right from day one. For example, if you’re taking public transportation, basically you’re encapsulated with strangers inside your choice of vehicle. Traveling by plane raises the risk of illnesses such as colds or the flu possibly by sharing recirculated air or touching in-flight magazines, contaminated trays and armrests, lavatory door handles, etc. And this can get your journey off to a sick start.

You have a choice to help prevent becoming sick by taking antioxidant-rich Proancynol 2000 or trying to find cold or flu medicine after getting sick. Members know that increasing levels of antioxidants with Proancynol considerably reduces the risk of illnesses, whether on the ground or up in the air somewhere.

Bring along the healthy gut bacteria in FloraFood to prevent ailments such as traveler’s diarrhea or other stomach bugs or you may have to scramble to find medications to counteract the bad bacteria in your gut after ingesting contaminated food or water. Members are aware that maintaining the population of good bacteria in the gut with FloraFood helps to prevent stomach problems especially while traveling.

And you simply can’t go wrong by packing BarleyLife in lightweight Sample Packs to supplement your nutritional intake with the jam-packed nutrients in barley grass.
If travel is in your plans, pack prevention by packing AIM nutrition.

In the summer of 2017, I packed AIM products for my trip to China, where I competed in the roller games for Team Canada. With all of the traveling, stress and different foods, many of the other participants got sick. Taking supplements such as BarleyLife, FloraFood and Proancynol 2000 kept me healthy.

The Probiotic and Prebiotic Connection

Over the years, The AIM Companies has stressed the importance of good gut bacteria known as probiotics. The latest research is now confirming the significance of prebiotics—types of fiber that good bacteria eat—establishing that these two go hand in hand to improve and maintain good health. AIM offers healthy sources of both: FloraFood probiotics and fit’ n fiber prebiotics.

You and Your Gut Microbiome

All of the microorganisms that make up your gut microbiome (or microbiota) can be thought of as a nurturing and protective army. Your microbiome helps to keep you alive by performing many important duties, such as digesting food, absorbing nutrients, forming short-chain fatty acids (primary nutrient of cells lining the colon), producing vitamins and defending you from disease-causing pathogens.

Many of the pathogens your gut battles against are types of bad bacteria. These bad guys are believed to be factors in the onset of inflammation, obesity and a variety of chronic diseases by overpopulating your microbiome until they are out of balance with your good bacteria.

Consuming probiotics in FloraFood help to keep your gut in a balanced state. And with the latest research showing that probiotics thrive by eating prebiotic fiber that you cannot digest, AIM has a duo of products that supports a balanced microbiome.

FloraFood Probiotics and fit’ n fiber prebiotics

As a source of probiotics, FloraFood contains three types of good bacteria: Lactobacillus gasseri, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium longum. Each capsule delivers 3 billion good bacteria that back up your nurturing and protective army.

To help feed this army, the fit ’n fiber formula includes three types of prebiotic fiber: acacia, konjac (glucomannan) and guar gum. Each serving delivers a significant amount of food for probiotics: 8 grams of prebiotics to feed FloraFood’s 3 billion good bacteria, helping them to grow and reproduce exponentially to ensure a balanced microbiome.

The Good and Bad Bacteria Balance

There’s a bacterial balancing act going on inside your gut microbiome: the microorganisms in your intestinal tract. And you want them to be dominated by good bacteria (probiotics) that keep you healthy.

Overpopulated, bad bacteria can cause bloating, diarrhea, constipation and other bowel disorders as well inhibit the absorption of nutrients that your body needs. When you consider that your digestive system houses over 100 trillion bacteria weighing in at around four pounds, it is vital that the good outweigh the bad.

 Support Your Microbiome with FloraFood and fit ’n fiber

FloraFood provides a supplemental population of probiotics (good bacteria) for your gut microbiome. Each capsule of FloraFood probiotics contains 3 billion colony forming units to help outnumber the bad. And fit ’n fiber delivers prebiotics (food) for those probiotics to thrive and reproduce in your gut, the core of your disease-fighting immune system.

Know Who Your FloraFood Friends Are: Lacto, Bifido & Bifido

So what are the three types of good bacteria found in FloraFood that supplement those in your gut microbiome?

One of the main species of good bacteria that populates your gastrointestinal tract is also in FloraFood: Lactobacillus gasseri. This species creates a variety of organic compounds that inhibit unfriendly bacteria. One of these compounds is lactic acid, which creates an unsuitable intestinal environment for the bad to breed.

Along with the resilience to survive a journey through stomach acid on the way to the intestines, L. gasseri is the stickiest of all lactobacilli when it comes to adhering to intestinal walls, allowing it to effectively colonize and protect you against disease-causing pathogens.

The other two FloraFood friends are some of the very first microbes to colonize the human gastrointestinal tract and belong to the Bifidobacterium species: B. bifidum and B. longum.

These probiotics have been shown to:

  • provide nutrients by breaking down non-digestible, dietary carbohydrates
  • protect against pathogens by competitive exclusion (beating out the bad guys)
  • modulate the immune system
  • confer positive health benefits

Taking Care of Your FloraFood Friends with fit ’n fiber

Research has shown that good bacteria feast on undigested dietary carbohydrates defined as prebiotics, which help them to flourish in gut microbiome.

Fit for probiotic feasting, fit ’n fiber contains three types of prebiotic fiber: acacia, konjac (glucomannan) and guar gum. Each serving delivers 8 grams of prebiotics to feed probiotics, helping good bacteria grow and reproduce exponentially.

To help maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in your microbiome, supplement with FloraFood probiotics and keep them well fed with fit ’n fiber prebiotics.

Is It Time for Inner Spring Cleaning?

Shared by Members Toni Lund, Teresa Schumacher and Amanda Maradiaga

What has happened to the health of people in this great nation of ours? Many of today’s diseases have come about because of drastic changes in our environment, food that is being chemically treated and food additives that are toxic to our systems. So we suffer from illnesses that never plagued mankind before.

The colon is at the root of these problems. A regular diet of refined carbohydrates and a lack of dietary fiber increases the transit time of bowel wastes and stimulates the production of putrefactive bacteria in the bowel. When the colon is impacted with sugar, hamburgers, French fries, etc., how can the body ever expect to assimilate any good nutrients? Such eating habits have contributed to our nation’s obesity epidemic. This is all the more reason to clean the impacted fecal matter from our colons and eat healthier food to maintain them.

“It’s like I always said,” commented Teresa Schumacher, Chairman’s Club Director and formulator of Herbal Fiberblend, “you would never wax a floor before sweeping and mopping it first.” You can’t absorb any good nutrients from the food you eat if you don’t clean out the colon first.

Pharmacy or Farmacy?

When most people get sick, they turn to the “pharmacy” for their ailments. Yet our ancestors turned to the “farmacy”—wholesome food and natural medicine.
Teresa Schumacher is 92 years old and doesn’t take any prescription medications. She continues to take BarleyLife, Herbal Fiberblend and Composure daily. With a combination of healthy eating and AIM products, she has managed to stay healthy. Teresa is still helping people and loves to hear from those she has helped over the years.

Cleansing the Colon

While we recommend maintaining a daily habit of keeping your bowels moving, we are often asked how often one should do a more intense cleanse, a “spring cleaning” of sorts. Remember, it’s easier to clean a colon that’s well maintained than to clean a colon that’s had a year of binging and gorging.

Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife and Composure along with Just Carrots, RediBeets and PrepZymes should be used on a daily basis to maintain good health. But as mentioned before, with all the chemicals and additives in our food, even a well-kept colon could use a good spring cleaning every three or six months, and annually.

Here are some of our favorite cleanses; complete details can be found in the books, Cleansing the Body and the Colon for a Happier and Healthier You and Candida the Slow Killer (available as Kindle Editions on amazon.com or contact the authors for hard copies).

Accelerated 3-Week Cleanse

This cleanse uses Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife, RediBeets and Composure. It also includes Cascara Sagrada (optional) usually found at your local health food store.

Gall Stone and Liver 3-Day Cleanse

This cleanse uses Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife, Composure and RediBeets.

Candida Control Program (3-Month Cleanse)

This cleanse uses Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife and Composure. Full details of this cleanse can be found in Candida the Slow Killer.

Parasite Cleanse Using Para 90

This cleanse is not in either book, but we have recommended it often to people. Take 3 Para 90 capsules per day for 30 days in conjunction with taking Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife and Composure twice daily. Take 1 Para 90 capsule with each dose of Herbal Fiberblend and then one capsule before bed.

As with any good cleanse, FloraFood is recommended to replenish friendly bacteria and maintain gut flora balance.

Herbal remedies are foreign to many people. It takes a little more convincing to help them understand the value of being responsible for their own health. If we take care of ourselves and not wait until we get sick, how much better off we will be? This is why the AIM products are so valuable.

I had terrible pains in my colon every time I had a bowel movement, they would last from 8 to 10 hours. I was unable to work and couldn’t afford to see a doctor. A friend of mine recommended Herbal Fiberblend. I took it that night and have been taking it faithfully for 12 years and have had no pain!   –Ken S.

I have been taking Herbal Fiberblend for 10 years. I notice a difference when I take it versus when I run out and can’t take it. With regular use, I notice no yeast infections; I rarely get the flu or a cold. Although I was diagnosed with IBS, I have regular bowel movements and the gas and bloating I experienced are gone.

Managing Inflammation Improved My Life

Shared by Jan Kusch, AIM Preferred Member

Jan Kusch headshotMy journey with AIM began in February 2012, when I had been diagnosed with chronic dermatomyositis, a rare auto­immune disease that attacks the muscle and skin, resulting in weak muscles and irritated skin condition on my hands, neck, chest, scalp, face and eyelids.

Strangers would walk up to me and ask if I had shingles. My arm and leg muscles hurt so badly, I could hardly endure driving the car or using the computer keyboard, plus walking was becoming a challenge.

My doctor kept prescribing more medications, and I seemed to be getting worse. At the same time, my mother was at the end stages of Alzheimer’s, my only son was serving as an army lieutenant in the northern mountains of Afghanistan and my health insurance business was a challenge to maintain due to Obamacare.

Then, two things happened that turned my life around. Rosie Reichert, a dear friend who is an AIM Director, called to invite me to a meeting to learn about AIM products. I immediately placed an order. Simultaneously, I was contacted by the doctor’s office. I had been on a waiting list to become a new patient. Many prayers were answered at the same time!

I told my new doctor about the AIM products I had started taking, and she was on board for me to use them. She immediately sent me to physical therapy, changed my diet to gluten-free and reduced my medications. It took about one year to go from weekly injections of methotrexate—a drug used to treat certain types of cancer, psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis—to none.

My disease is all about managing inflammation. The AIM products I use daily are BarleyLife juice powder and capsules, AIMega, Composure, RediBeets, Peak Endurance, Proancynol 2000 and FloraFood as well as Mag-nificence spray and Herbal Fiberblend as needed. I credit these products with improving my quality of life. I was even able to travel with my son to Europe in the fall of 2016 for two weeks, visiting England, France and Ireland.

I am thankful for the support and quality products that The AIM Companies™ has provided. I am excited to share my story and encourage you to give AIM a try.

My Journey to Success

Shared by Marinda van den Bosch, AIM Star Sapphire Director

My journey to success started three years ago with my sickly boy, Roan. It was not my intention at all to start AIM as a business. After a consultation with Royal Emerald Director Madaleine Helm (my upline) I just wanted my friends and family to hear about this natural way of healing. Madaleine conducted my first AIM talk on hormones for friends and family. After that I was literally sold out of all the products she discussed.

Marinda

I saw such a difference with my own children after I put them onto a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. I used the Garden Trio, FloraFood, Herbal Fiberblend and AIMega to supplement them.

I started organizing more and more talks and got to learn about the AIM business and the AIM products. When I started the AIM business, I reached Director status within three months. Becoming Star Sapphire Director looked so far ahead, I thought that will only be after many, many years of hard work. However, Madaleine was such a great help to me in setting up my AIM business that I was able to reach Star Sapphire level within three years.

I have built a great downline and we work together as a team, and what an amazing team this has become. I help my downline however I can. It is very important to do this as the stronger they become, so do you. It is also very important to focus on your own first level clients, to encourage them to stay on the products. Following up with clients is also very important as well as keeping track of their results. Every client is different, and each one has specific needs.

The extra AIM income each month is such a help to our family. Working AIM as a business is really worth it. I really don’t do this only for the money but to help other people with their health, and I really have a passion for nutrition. I have so many powerful testimonies on different products. Each and every AIM product is amazing for what it helps to achieve.

I am really working hard to achieve the next level in my AIM business. I encourage everyone who has a passion for nutrition and health to make AIM a successful business.

As the mother of four children, AIM as a business works perfectly for me. I can be with my children in the afternoon, to help with school work or extra murals and still help hubby with his business if needed. I organize my own hours. Running an AIM business gives you a lot of flexibility. I hope to build my business stronger and stronger in 2018.
