The Opportunity to Help Others with Nutrition Truths

Shared by Herman Bloemhof Shared by Herman Bloemhof AIM Director

My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2014. We didn’t know about any alternative options or nutrition, so she endured a terrible route of treatments: six weeks of chemotherapy, a double-breast mastectomy, radiation therapy and expensive medication that cost over $2,000 a month, all of which damaged her overall health and caused horrific side effects. After all of these treatments, we got hold of a documentary called The Truth about Cancer and began exploring more about nutrition.

Madaleine Helm, a nutrition advisor and AIM Royal Emerald Director, introduced us to the AIM products, which we started taking a few months after my wife’s treatments. We followed Madaleine’s suggested regimen, but the damage had already been done. We couldn’t turn around all of the side effects fast enough.

One of my wife’s wishes while she was still in hospital was that I had to share everything we learned with our three boys, their future wives and children, friends and anybody who wanted to live a healthy life. At that point in time, my heart was broken. I reminded her that the healthy route we tried wasn’t working for her, and she reminded me that we had started too late; the damage had already been done. Sadly, I lost her in September 2016.

We never planned to develop an AIM business. We only wanted to use the opportunity to help those who are ill and those that don’t want to become ill, showing them the natural way to live a healthy, disease-free life as we believe God created man to experience.

In less than four months of joining AIM, I became a Director. I have continued to take the products and follow a healthy lifestyle. Many people ask me what I’m doing as they can see that I have lost a lot of weight, and I’m feeling the best I’ve felt in my whole life.

I have to say that in the first few months following my wife’s death, it slowed me a bit down in planning and facilitating talks and selling AIM products. But after attending the AIM Celebration in Nashville, I decided that I had to continue as she wished: doing talks and consultations and spreading the good news. I also decided to name my AIM business “Nutrition Truths.”

First we give all the glory to God, advising people who come to the talks about the natural way that we believe He intended. When treating illnesses, we should not be enslaved by all the medicines that have numerous side effects. I am a pharmacist by occupation although I’m no longer directly involved in the pharmaceutical environment. With my “New Truths” learned—and walking the talk—I don’t believe in chronic long-term medication. I have converted to the natural route. 

I can’t explain how this AIM thing is just working and doing the best for me. I’ve lost more than fifty pounds (27 kilos) by following this natural route of using AIM products.

I am taking the following AIM products:

  • AIMega contains the essential fatty acids that keep my heart healthy and help prevent blood clots.
  • Without my daily Garden Trio, I just can’t function. BarleyLife makes my day just gel. Just Carrots helps keep my cells healthy, and RediBeets helps keep my liver healthy.
  • Herbal Fiberblend capsules help to cleanse my bow­els and detoxify my body.
  • GinkgoSense also assists in preventing blood clots.
  • Peak Endurance: Wow! Without this energy drink, I would definitely not be able to keep my busy daily schedule.I am so passionate about my new way of living!

I am so passionate about my new way of living!

Tooth and Gum Health with AIM

Your overall health is greatly affected by your oral hygiene. When it isn’t optimal, your body can be negatively impacted by problems with your gums and teeth, a link caused partly by specific oral bacteria as well as factors such as nutrition and genetics.

Science recognizes the vital role that bacteria plays in keeping you healthy, from the skin, to the mucous membranes in your mouth, to the intestines. But it’s all about the proper balance between the good and the bad.

Your mouth is a breeding ground for bacteria that are essentially harmless until a biofilm is allowed to proliferate on the teeth and gums, thereby causing oral infections. Gum disease and tooth decay are two of the most common consequences of
not effectively brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis.

According to numerous studies, uncontrolled growth of oral bacteria combined with inflamed gums may even promote some diseases. In fact, due to research conducted over the last twenty-five years, it is now commonly accepted that there is a link between oral inflammation and clogged arteries, dementia, heart disease and stroke. Those with type 2 diabetes may find it easier to get oral infections due to the disease’s weakening of the immune system.

Current research is investigating how having osteoporosis—systemic loss of bone density causing weak and brittle bones—may provide a host system that is increasingly susceptible to infectious destruction of tooth and bone loss.

To protect your body from oral infections, it is essential to brush and floss your teeth daily and eat healthily, especially when it comes to limiting the amount of sugar and refined carbohydrates in your diet. And you can boost your intake of healthy foods with AIM nutritional supplements, such as BarleyLife for anti-inflammatory, cleansing greens that nurture healthy cells, CellSparc 360 for the coenzyme Q10 that has been shown to help repair gum tissue¹, and CalciAIM for calcium, which helps to protect teeth against
gum disease².

“Using AIM products like BarleyLife as an adjunctive part of our dental practice has proven to be incredibly beneficial for treating patients. Drinking these nutritional greens helps to alkalinize body pH and reduce inflammation, swelling, pain and infections. The key is educating people to change their lifestyles and to take AIM products on a daily basis.”

Education with a Nutritional Advantage

Healthy lunches, snack foods and beverages can make a difference in the physical and mental performance of students. That’s why many schools are making changes as to what is available in school cafeterias and vending machines.Healthy lunches, snack foods and beverages can make a difference in the physical and mental performance of students. That’s why many schools are making changes as to what is available in school cafeterias and vending machines.

A 2017 paper entitled “School Lunch Quality and Academic Performance” shows schools that contract with vendors providing healthy school lunches have a student population that scores higher on achievement tests. Such results support the long-argued medical and nutrition literature that a healthy diet can improve cognitive function.

Student services at the University of British Columbia easily lay out the physical and mental benefits of eating well:

  • More energy
  • Consistent energy levels throughout the day
  • Feel full longer
  • Healthy weight management
  • Stronger bones and muscles
  • Improved immune system
  • Improved ability to focus on tasks like studying and writing

But let’s face it, no matter what their age, most students will not eat well consistently. That is where moms and dads can step in and give their children of all ages an education with the nutritional advantage of AIM supplements.

Introducing AIM products into the lives of children can make a huge difference in their physical health and academic performance throughout their schooling. The following are just a few of many healthy choices in the AIM lineup.

Essential Fatty Acids

Omega-3 is one of two essential fatty acids (EFAs) that must come from dietary intake because the human body cannot produce them. The second is omega-6, which often comes from unhealthy food sources, such as fast foods and processed snacks, cookies and crackers made with refined vegetable oils, so most people get more omega-6 than omega-3. AIMega delivers a balanced 2:1 ratio of omega-3 and -6 from an organic seed-oil source. Every cell in you and your child’s body requires a healthy balance of these EFAs to function optimally.

Greens

Students of all ages may not eat (or refuse to eat) enough vegetables. BarleyLife Xtra, a naturally sweet choice of greens, and CoCoa LeafGreens, chocolaty greens, can provide this missing link to good health.  These concentrated powders offer an unsurpassed source of plant-based nutrition to supplement the all-too-frequent poor diets of students.

Send your children back to school with an AIM advantage.

The Heavy Weight on Children

The World Health Organi­zation states childhood obesity is one of the most serious public health challenges of the twenty-first century with 2015 statistics showing that the global number of overweight children under five years of age is over forty-two million.

Since the 1970s, the percentage of obese children in the USA has more than tripled. Today, statistics indicate that one in three children in North America is overweight or obese. And the likelihood is that half all these children will be obese adults.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines obesity as having excess body fat and overweight as having excess body weight for a particular height from fat, muscle, bone, water or a combination of these factors. However you define the two terms, it puts children at risk for health problems that used to be seen only in adults, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

Even with all of the scary numbers and likely negative results, the fact is that obesity can be prevented or reversed. Parents are encouraged to help their children make a couple of healthy lifestyle changes and enact them together as a family.

Reduce Screen Time

We live in a world where the majority of children spend more time looking at TVs, video games, computers, tablets and smartphones than gazing up at the sky and being physically active beneath it. Limit their screen time and increase physical activity time outdoors.

If all family members regularly disconnect from their gadgets, it opens the door to connecting with each other. And that’s the most important connection of all.

Increase Healthy Nutrition

Eating the right food is one of the simplest ways to stay healthy and maintain an ideal weight. Fruit and vegetables should make up 50 percent of the meal on every plate. Getting creative in the kitchen so that children ask for healthy food is a step worth taking.

AIM can provide supplemental help. Whole-food powders such as CoCoa LeafGreens and ProPeas create a healthy chocolate drink that delivers stomach-filling pea protein and nutrient-packed greens. Getting your kids to ask for BarleyLife or naturally sweet BarleyLife Xtra may be one of the healthiest lifestyle changes you can do for them.

Help People Make Healthy Decisions

For Ruth Overholt, the key to health is simple: keep your colon clean and add nutrients to your diet. This simple philosophy guided Ruth and her late husband, Andrew, for over thirty years as they helped people make healthy decisions with the assistance of The AIM Companies™. For Ruth Overholt, the key to health is simple: keep your colon clean and add nutrients to your diet. This simple philosophy guided Ruth and her late husband, Andrew, for over thirty years as they helped people make healthy decisions with the assistance of The AIM Companies™. Both Andrew and Ruth grew up on a farm where they learned the value of hard work and eating healthily. Ruth recalled, “Growing and eating vegetables is one thing I was raised to believe was very important. We lived a healthy life in that way.”

Once the Overholts got married and began raising a family, they maintained a store that became known around their southern Indiana community as a place to buy fresh citrus fruit. However, despite their background of eating fresh food off the land, it wasn’t until the mid-1980s that the Overholts discovered BarleyLife and began making intentional healthy choices. Ruth continued, “Andrew suffered a lot from allergies, flus, colds and bronchitis. When the weather got cold, Andrew would get sick. We later discovered that you don’t have to live like that.”

The first half of Ruth’s theory of health was influenced by Andrew’s Rejuvenation Therapy Clinic, which served health needs through colonics and distribution of Herbal Fiberblend. It was through this avenue that the Overholts really began to see their AIM business grow. Andrew believed that his own example of keeping his colon cleansed through the use of Herbal Fiberblend was a large part of why people continued to come back for more products.

Today, Ruth has plenty of reasons to still believe in her philosophy of health. At eighty-nine years of age, Ruth is not on any medications and does not suffer from any sort of bodily aches or pains. In fact, she still occasionally helps her daughter with housecleaning jobs and has plenty of energy for the people in her life.

Making healthy choices with AIM products did not just benefit Andrew and Ruth. It also gave their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren a legacy of health to appreciate and build upon in their own lives. Ruth concluded, “The Lord is blessing me every day.”

Happy about AIM BarleyLife

In 2018, Clyde Walters will be ninety years old, and he has a lot to say to others so that they reach their tenth decade and beyond in good health. And it’s primarily about BarleyLife.

“I’m happy about BarleyLife. I can talk about it, and I can argue about it and never lose an argument,” Clyde said matter-of-factly. “I’m a classic example of what it can do for your health if you stick with it. I know people in their fifties who argue that I’d probably have the same good health if I hadn’t taken BarleyLife all these years. I say, ‘You’re not even sixty and you already have one foot in the grave.’ They don’t argue anymore.”

Clyde came across AIM’s juice powder of young barley plants in the early 1980s. “I’ve always had a lot of interest in vitamins and minerals,” Clyde stated, “so I did my studies on barley plants. I kind of analyzed everything AIM had and tried everything. It made sense to me.”

Being a successful car salesman, Clyde also looked at the AIM business angle. “I was fascinated with network marketing,” he explained. “I started selling jars of AIM’s barley grass juice powder and soon had a downline going that turned into a successful business.”

Clyde held seminars in many different cities, including Nashville, Tampa and Orlando, promoting to Star Sapphire Director in 2000. In St. Petersburg, his hometown, he would speak about AIM nutrition in front of crowds of 300–400 people in a church. People know him as the owner of a used car lot: Ace Motors and Garage. Clyde has a solid reputation for being a salesman that you can totally trust. He is not interested in taking advantage of people; he wants to help them.

While in college, Clyde took a good course on mental health that gave him valuable insights on how to accurately read people. After serving four years in the U.S. Navy, he worked for twenty years as a police officer with the St. Petersburg Police Department in the motorcycle division.

As his career in law enforcement drew to a close, Clyde started selling motorcycles in his present-day location. After retiring in 1972, he began selling cars at Ace Motors, a business that has lasted for forty-five years. With about a year left on his dealer’s license, Clyde is considering a second retirement, closing the shop and selling the property. If he does, it will be really difficult for people in the area to find another
Clyde Walters.

When asked about the AIM products that he takes, Clyde said, “I settled down on Proancynol 2000 (two capsules daily for additional antioxidants) and BarleyLife capsules. I take five in the morning and then some more in the afternoon. BarleyLife gives me more energy than any other product I’ve taken ever did.” And you can’t argue about that with him either.

Healthy Aging: What a Concept!

It’s a fact of life that everyone gets older day by day. As the years go by, factors like genetics, lifestyle and nutrition can speed up or slow down the aging process. So what is the definition of healthy aging?

According to a 2006 report by the Swedish National Institute of Public Health, healthy aging is “the process of optimizing opportunities for physical, social and mental health to enable older people to take an active part in society without discrimination and to enjoy an independent and good quality of life.” It’s a good definition, especially the part about “optimizing opportunities.” AIM definitely offers that.

First, as an independent distributor of AIM products, you have the option of earning an income that grows in relation to the amount of time and effort you put into growing your business. These factors allow you to optimize the opportunity presented by the AIM Income Plan.

Second, the products you help to distribute optimize the opportunity to improve people’s health so that they can “enjoy an independent and good quality of life.”

Nutrient-Rich BarleyLife

If anyone wants to age healthily, taking BarleyLife daily can help. It’s a nutritional supplement that can be taken from childhood through senior adulthood. BarleyLife helps maintain well-being because barley grass provides a naturally rich source of nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that every cell in the body can use to help promote optimal health.

Anti-Aging Proancynol 2000

To protect the body from damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals, Proancynol 2000 delivers an additional wealth of antioxidants in an unparalleled formulation. Dr. Richard Cutler, the former director of the National Institute of Aging, stated that the amount of antioxidants in your body is directly proportional to how long you will live. Top up your antioxidant intake with Proancynol 2000.

Joint-Nourishing Frame Essentials

One of the most common pains of aging is felt in the joints. That’s where Frame Essentials can help make a difference. For relief of joint pain, Frame Essentials offers the anti-inflammatory effects of glucosamine, boswellia and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). You don’t have to have creaky, painful joints as you age. Give your frame the essentials for healthy joints: Frame Essentials.

There are many more products in the AIM lineup that promote healthy aging. Check out the product catalog for the entire list.
