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.

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

Joining the AIM Family

Shared by Lee Buckle, AIM Royal Emerald Director

Joining The AIM Companies™ in July 1997 was the start of another exciting journey. I had just arrived back from a year of sailing the Indian Ocean with my husband and two small children. For six months, we were on an uninhabited island called Chagos, where we ate loads of fish, rice, tinned and dehydrated vegetables … no fresh vegetables. Well, on leaving the island, my hair was falling out at a scary rate and my teeth felt loose. I am convinced it was a lack of fresh vegetables, fruit and mainly enzymes.

On our return, I started working half days as a pharmacist in a wholesale company. Stuck in a back office placing phone orders, I was so unhappy, having no face-to-face chatter with people, only four walls. My children were in school and aftercare.

A pamphlet of this strange barley grass product caught my attention: a salad in a glass! What a perfect product for sailors. I joined and, to my husband’s horror, I ordered a 6-pack of BarleyLife. I loved the product.

My first AIM meeting was like joining a family. As I learned about the other AIM products, I became more and more excited, and I started introducing them to people. Herbal Fiberblend became one of my favorites. The idea that all disease starts in the colon made so much sense. We are what we eat.

I won my first package for two to the AIM Conference in Phoenix, Arizona in 1998. What an experience. Within six months of joining AIM, my commission check matched my salary check. I resigned from work and starting working AIM full time.

I was blessed to be able to work at home around my children for 16 years and be at every hockey match and swimming gala. I networked at every function. Networking is my passion!

I love helping people to work on the reason for their dis-eases and the changes in their lives as they take control. I also love traveling, so getting onto an airplane is exciting as it takes me to so many stunning places and enables me to meet awesome people.

And my boyfriend, Lourens, and I own a couple of pharmacies, where we also sell AIM products that make an impact on many lives.

At age 56, I run half marathons and cycle in mountain-bike races. I know that what you put into your mouth determines your health. I have amazing energy and just love life. I feel very blessed.

Guys and Supplementation

It can be a challenge to convince most guys that supplementing beyond muscle-building protein powder is a good thing. So let’s start there.

If you’re a guy reading this (or if you’re reading this and know a guy), ProPeas is a natural way to supplement protein intake. Building lean muscles, maintaining a healthy weight and boosting a fat-burning metabolism are just a few benefits of pea protein for men of all ages. It’s plant-based, so ProPeas is a healthy alternative to consuming meat.

Beyond supplemental protein, there’s so much more from AIM to support men’s health

Giving Guys a Healthy Helping Hand

Maintaining good health is often something that guys think about after there’s a problem. But proactive men know that eating (and sleeping) well, exercising and supplementing with AIM whole-food concentrates and natural health products contribute to their overall well-being and reduce the risk of many diseases.

AIM for Longevity

After Chairman’s Club Director Keith Thompson began tak­ing AIM products, his sons noticed a big difference in him. By using products such as energy-boosting Peak Endurance, Keith has gone rock climbing with his middle son, impressing people with his ability to make it through the really challenging parts. And he’s gone on 10-mile kayak trips and 22-mile bike rides with his boys. “I couldn’t have done any of this without AIM products,” Keith admitted. “My sons wish that I could have taken them when they were growing up.”

Chairman’s Club Director George McPherson has also been able to maintain an active lifestyle, and younger men and colleagues envy his strength and endurance. “I don’t know where I would be today without the AIM products,” George stated, relating the time many years ago when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Immediate surgery had been recommended. But he decided to opt for naturopathic IV treatments and AIM products, including the Garden Trio and Herbal Fiberblend along with ReAssure SP for prostate health. And to this day, George has never required the surgery.

Almost 30 years ago, Chairman’s Club Director Dr. John Shewfelt began taking BarleyLife, which is his favorite food. John and his wife, Marilyn, along with their kids and grandkids have seen positive health benefits over the years by taking AIM products such as BarleyLife.

For example, at the age of 64, John decided to have a thorough heart examination “to see how the old ticker was doing.” When he went in for the results, the cardiologist told him he had the heart of an ox and that all of his blood vessels were perfectly clear—no plaque buildup. “The cardiologist also said that he knew I used green food nutrition because none of his other patients had such healthy arteries. He had emigrated from Hong Kong, where he used to see healthy arteries all the time because people use green nutrition to stay healthy,” John stated. “When I finally told him about BarleyLife, he said ‘don’t stop using it’ and I never will.”

AIM’s Healthy Nutritional Edge

From a young age, AIM Director Dan Nichols had an unhealthy fear of disease. His father died at the age of 53 from a heart attack and his grandmother had cancer. In 2003, he came across healthy eating and juicing. “I suddenly realized you could fight disease with nutrition,” Dan stated, noting he has also been involved with regular exercise since his teen years.

After meeting AIM Star Sapphire Director Leré Robinson, Dan was introduced to AIM’s juice powders and got to know the heart of AIM. One of his children had allergies that were relieved by taking products recommended by Leré, including Leaf Greens and BarleyLife. For his entire family, BarleyLife would become a daily nutritional supplement. And Dan began a morning routine, taking BarleyLife Xtra, RediBeets and Peak Endurance as well as a daily shake made with ProPeas and fit’ n fiber. With healthy eating and AIM supplements, he and his family continue to “fight disease with nutrition.”

Bruce Crevier, AIM Preferred Member and AIM-sponsored athlete, turned a childhood fascination with basketball spinning into an entertaining show that would eventually take him and his family all across the USA and to over forty countries. Bruce and his wife Diane and their 12 children even performed their “Spin-tacular Basketball Show” on episodes of America’s Got Talent.

For good health, the Creviers had been juicing at home for many years but found it difficult to do when on the road. Finding The AIM Companies™ and whole-food concentrates like the Garden Trio allowed Bruce and his family to continue this healthy routine while traveling. And in 2017, the Creviers became the very first AIM-sponsored group whose demanding performances benefit from Nutrition that Works!

AIM has been in the business of helping people with high-quality supplements since 1982. Many of those individuals are guys who know that AIM nutrition helps to keep them in good health. But there will always be room for more AIM supplement guys.

“Aren’t They All Just Pyramid Schemes?”

How I joined a network marketing company and never looked back

I consider myself open-minded, but in the last few years I have found that the majority of people do not share my open-mindedness. My story begins a few years ago when a friend introduced me to a product called Herbal Fiberblend. I was having some digestive issues … I’ll spare you the details. What I can tell you is Herbal Fiberblend made an incredible difference. I was so impressed that I did some research and decided to get started with the company that offers this product. Within five months, my entrepreneurial business took off and I made the decision to go into it full-time. My friends and family thought I was making a mistake. But I am happy to report that the only mistake I made was not starting sooner!

Before I started my business, I had absolutely no entrepreneurial experience. In less than two years I now make a better income in this so-called “pyramid scheme” than I did as a pharmacy technician, a job I went to school for and went into debt to achieve. The irony is that the income from my new business has actually helped to pay off the balance of my student loans!

“You will never make money in a pyramid scheme.” Honestly, leaving my pharmacy tech position to do entrepreneurial sales full-time was scary. After all, I had a stable income and benefits with an established company. But the people I met working in the business were the first to tell me, “Everything is a pyramid scheme.” There will always be a hierarchy at every company with someone making more than the next person, and so forth.

I now understand exactly what they meant. Looking back, I realize that no matter how hard I worked at the pharmacy, there was always going to be a ceiling on how much I was going to be paid.  When I approached my supervisor about the possibility of advancement, he too expressed the goal to grow in his career and compensation. When you think about, most companies have a ladder to the top, with different “levels.” Sound familiar? Wanting to move up in earning and position is something that nearly all of us strive for in our professional lives. What makes entrepreneurial network marketing unique is you can achieve this without being held back by the hierarchy above you in the organization.

So why do network marketing companies have such a bad name? Because they are NOT all the same. From the moment I made the decision to go full-time as an entrepreneur, family and friends were skeptical. There were remarks like, “You know that a lot of ‘those companies’ have gone out of business or been investigated for being pyramid schemes, right?” Yes, there ARE direct selling companies that have not followed good business practices or have disregarded the rule of law. But it’s important to keep things in perspective. Those companies often fold within a few years. Still, it is important that you do some research before you decide to join any direct selling company. Make sure the company you choose sells a commodity and pays you based on the sale of that commodity. Make sure it is a product or line of products you can confidently stand behind. If either of these is not true, stay clear.

The company I chose has been in business for over 36 years and offers a line of high-quality whole-food and nutritional products that I personally use with confidence.  So, I am able to make an income offering products that I trust in and can help a person’s health and well-being. When I talk to people I never promise anyone that they will make a six-figure income or get a free car, for example.  In fact, early on in the relationship I typically don’t discuss the business opportunity with a customer or prospect unless they ask.  I simply suggest products based on my experience and a person’s needs, emphasizing the product’s benefits and the 30-day money-back guarantee. I certainly don’t claim to be a doctor or know of a “cure-all.”  The nice thing about this company is I don’t even have to build a team of salespeople and can still make a good income.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t talk about the other reasons I enjoy being an entrepreneur. No, it’s not all about the money you can earn! For me, it is also about the relationships. I have made a lot of friends through my business. It’s also about personal development. I was always a follower, having had poor self-esteem since childhood. Being an entrepreneur has helped me become a much more confident person and leader. I didn’t have that sense of purpose and self-assurance in my previous work.

And by the way, most people fail in this kind of business because they lack motivation and initiative. You can be given every tool you need to succeed, but if you do not apply yourself, you fail. It is important to attend to the business, to streamline your prospecting system, and to build and maintain your team. Just like in a regular job, if you do the right things and do them diligently, you will eventually succeed.

I am not discouraged by negative articles about network marketing because I know it works. I’m not wealthy yet, but it won’t be long before I’m making a better income than most of the people I know with college degrees, some of whom never had a job that related to their field of study. And when they complain to me about student loan debt, lack of opportunity for advancement, or working for “the man”, I can guarantee you I will tell them about The AIM Companies.

Barley Baby

The nutrition a woman chooses for her herself can have a profound effect on both her health and that of her children. Tanya van der Westhuizen, AIM Director, knows this to be true after experiencing two completely different pregnancies: before and after AIM Nutrition that Works.

After her first child was born prematurely, Tanya found herself constipated, depressed and overweight, while still craving unhealthy food. “I had no idea of what was going on with my hormonal system and body,” she admitted. “And I did not know anything about nutrition or the impact it could have on the development of a baby.”

The health of her firstborn was compromised by a weak immune system. Like Tanya, her little boy suffered from a bad skin condition and had food issues. Every time new teeth came in, he would get sick. “I wish somebody had told me about BarleyLife earlier,” Tanya stated, whose poor health continued, and she suffered two miscarriages.

After a few years of feeling that every system in her body was dysfunctional, Tanya was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune disorder that causes the immune system to attack and kill thyroid cells, creating chronic inflammation in the thyroid gland and affecting hormonal balance. And a blood test revealed that she was extremely sensitive to milk, eggs and chicken.

Everything Changes

A few years later, lifestyle adjustments, including a better diet and AIM supplements, began changing everything for the better. “I basically prepared my body for two years before getting pregnant again,” Tanya said. “I took the Garden Trio, AIMega and Herbal Fiberblend and used Renewed Balance.” By 2016, Tanya was in good health and pregnant.

“I am living proof of how nutrition—more fruit and vegetables and avoiding inflammatory foods—changed my body,” Tanya exclaimed. After giving a full-term birth to a healthy baby girl, Tanya did not struggle with excessive weight gain, sore ankles, bad skin, water retention or postnatal depression. And her baby was developing so well that they called her the Barley Baby, who has no health issues and sleeps well. “I firmly believe the excellent nutrition achieved by taking BarleyLife was a major contribution.”

“We are still using AIM products happily and successfully,” Tanya added, “proof that AIM products help improve your family’s health.
