AIM Changed My Life

Shared by Sandy Berry, Group Builder in Tarlton, South Africa

In 2017, I listened to an AIM presentation from Royal Emerald Director Madaleine Helm that addressed a number of health issues. My own included osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and anemia along with hot flashes that disappeared only five days after I started taking BarleyLife and using Renewed Balance.

Shortly afterward, I found out that my seven-year-old daughter, Hayley, had
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Having her tested for food sensitivities revealed she had celiac disease as well. I put her on a variety of AIM products, including BarleyLife Xtra, CoCoa LeafGreens and FloraFood. As for changing her diet, I removed anything that contained gluten. For good measure, we are busy eliminating dairy as well.

Two months later, my twenty-six-year-old daughter, Tarryn, was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I gave her BarleyLife, Herbal Fiberblend, Frame Essentials and Peak Endurance as well as Renewed Balance. These products have helped her to
feel better.

As for Hayley, seven months of being on the AIM products has made a huge improvement in her well-being. I can almost say she is a different child. She’s not so aggressive anymore. And she falls asleep within fifteen minutes instead of the three hours it used to take. I really notice that her concentration is much better. Overall, Hayley is just a far more pleasant little girl. Giving her AIM products is of utmost importance to me because I believe she’s getting the best support available.

To share what AIM products mean to me and my family, I decided to study AIM’s online courses to learn more about them and how the company works. You cannot promote AIM products if you have no idea what they can do for you or how the body works. I graduated from the AIM Academy in April, so now I have a better understanding of how the body needs AIM nutrition to function optimally.

I hope that more people will educate themselves and help give other people the best possible health solutions. I will always try to increase my own knowledge so that I can give the best of myself to everyone I meet. If I can help just one person, I’ll feel I have accomplished my goal in life. This is why I now sell AIM products to all who want to better their health.

Thank you to Madaleine Helm and The AIM Companies™ for changing my life. I am truly blessed.

AIM Star Sapphire Direction Promotion: Ginette Paquin

 

July turned into a special month for Ginette Paquin this year. She promoted to AIM Star Sapphire Director, reaching an elite position in the AIM Member Income Plan.

When Ginette joined AIM back in 1998, she was already on the road to quick promotions, becoming a Preferred Member within a month. In less than a year and a half, she promoted to Director. To date, Ginette has 117 memberships in her downline.

Over the years, her AIM journey has taken Ginette to the distant shores of Madagascar and back. After operating a health clinic for fourteen years in her native Quebec, Ginette closed it in 2009. Then she and her husband, Mario Foster, moved to Madagascar, where Ginette did mission work. And she brought AIM products to share with the locals.

Working with children living on the street, Ginette got involved with Love-n-Care Ministries. Later, they founded Youth Challenge, which worked to teach children French, sign language and life skills as well as be fed two nutritious meals when they come to school. They have funded the building of schools that children attend for free. Along with receiving a basic education, the children study music, sewing, embroidery and life skills.

Using income from her AIM business, Ginette and Mario have helped to fund ministries and missionaries in Madagascar as well as provide a private-school education for eleven children in need.

Ginette and Mario have been married for thirty-one years, raising two children of their own. Their son Philippe and his wife Josée have three children, Nadia, Gabriel and Nicolas. Their daughter Jennifer is the mother of Kelly-Anne and Noah. All of Ginette and Mario’s family members are on the AIM products, including their five grandchildren. As for her own favorites, Ginette chooses the Daily Essentials Pack (Canada) — BarleyLife, Herbal Fi­ber­blend and AIMega — plus CellSparc 360.

When Ginette returned to Canada in 2015, people began calling her about re-opening her clinic. “I believe my calling is to help others with their health,” Ginette stated. ”It gives me additional freedom to help more people.” Meeting people in their homes or having them visit her home has been beneficial in helping to educate them on nutrition and to regain their health by using the AIM products. “Datasheets are my favorite sales tool. So much information is given at meetings, so having datasheets in their hands to see and read is very helpful.”

“We are so grateful for The AIM Com­panies™ and the products they offer that helped changed our lives as well as the lives of those we share with,” Ginette said. “I would like to personally thank Andrée Jobin from French Services for all her help, support and friendship. When we were in Madagascar, she was always so helpful.”

Ginette’s advice for building a successful AIM business is to truly want to help others with their health, adding “When you love your neighbors and do good for them, God will open the door and all will fall into place.”

Diabetes is Bad But Reducing Inflammation with AIM Products Can Help

Diseases deserve their awful-sounding names: tuberculosis, fibromyalgia, cancer. No matter how you say them, they sound as bad as they are and make life worse than it ever should be.

There’s one particular disease out there with a growing, rippling effect around the globe. That’s because the number of people in the world who have diabetes is increasing with each passing year. The worldwide statistic for adults living with diabetes was 108 million in 1980. By 2014 that number had reached 422 million.

The Impact of Type 2 Diabetes

The majority have type 2 diabetes—the body makes insulin, but cells don’t use it effectively. That means blood sugar remains high, circulating throughout the body and causing chronic inflammation. Shockingly, it used to be a disease that only adults developed but now commonly affects children.

Type 2 diabetes is bad because it can damage eyes, kidneys, the heart, blood vessels and nerves, resulting in blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke or lower limb amputation. Diabetes is really bad.

Lifestyle changes, such as a proper diet and regular exercise to maintain a healthy weight, can be effective in preventing or reversing type 2 diabetes. So it just doesn’t make sense that more and more people are being diagnosed.

Or maybe it makes perfect sense when considering the worldwide embracement of poor nutrition: fatty fast foods, processed foods, sugar-filled foods and drinks! They are not natural, so consuming them on a regular basis creates unnatural side effects like chronic inflammation that can lead to the onset of type 2 diabetes.

A 2003 study published by the American Diabetes Association shows that people with type 2 diabetes have higher levels of inflammation, particularly with the presence of cytokines1: inflammatory chemicals often stored in fat tissue.

It’s a given that if you have—or are told to be at risk of—type 2 diabetes, lifestyle changes are necessary, mainly in regard to eating whole foods that are primarily plant-based. For example, dark, leafy green vegetables are an ideal food to combat inflammation.

Anti-Inflammatory Nutrition

BarleyLife delivers anti-inflammatory properties in the natural balance of nutrients found in barley grass, concentrated into a unique juice powder. The body thrives on a daily supply of antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, min­erals and vitamins, especially when these nutrients come from a plant-based source as rich as barley grass.

AIMega contains omega-3 essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce but requires to reduce inflammation. AIMega’s bal­anced 2:1 ratio of omega-3 and -6 from organic seed oils contribute to the healthy membrane structure and function of every cell.

Herbal Fiberblend or fit ’n fiber provide the anti-inflammatory properties of fiber, which slows down digestion and the release of glucose into the blood. Additionally, insulin is not required to digest fiber, so blood sugar levels are not spiked. A high-fiber intake makes the stomach feel full for a long time, helping to maintain a healthy weight.

GlucoChrom offers a natural way to increase the effective action of insulin, which channels blood sugar where it belongs: into cells that use glucose as an energy source, not a source of inflammation. The GlucoChrom combination of chromium, vanadium citrate, Gymnema sylvestre leaf extract and bitter melon fruit also helps to metabolize carbohydrates and fats, which assists with weight management.

Diabetes is bad, but there are natural ways to combat the bad and make it better. AIM leads the natural way.

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!

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.”

There Is HOPE for Our Kids!

Shared by Janeen Whitmer, AIM Preferred Member

At the end of the 2014-15 school year for 3rd grade, my daughter Kayla was tested and diagnosed as having a language processing disorder. School work was very difficult for her, and it became increasingly difficult to keep her attention. Homework was taking hours at night. The special education teacher recommended ADD and ADHD medication, but I didn’t feel that was the best way to help Kayla. I was sure that I could find a better solution to help her out from the cage her mind was in.

I decided to change our family’s eating habits. I started reading labels and almost completely cut out sugar and processed foods. I was very careful to buy organic wherever possible, and we tried to limit gluten.

The following school year, Kayla started speech and language therapy twice a week and was showing signs of improvement. However, at home she was still struggling with homework and hated going to school. We would both end up in tears by the time I dropped her off to school.

By the end of the year, I was at my wits’ end. It felt hopeless, but I was not going to give up on my daughter. I knew that she was trapped inside her mind, and I just needed to find the key to help her out.

That summer, I read everything I could get my hands on concerning ADD, ADHD and autism spectrum disorders. It all clicked. The way she would flap her arms if she was excited, the way she couldn’t sit still but seemed to sit on the edge of her seat with her whole body contorted with tension and the way she sat on the side at recess while everyone else played together. Everything I read spoke of a gut-brain connection.

From there I turned to AIM. I have been taking BarleyLife ever since my mom started me at age eight with barley juice powder. It was my prenatal, and as soon as my kids could hold sippy cups, they started getting their Garden Trio every morning.

I opened a capsule of FloraFood into Kayla’s Garden Trio every morning. In the afternoon, the kids would take their Herbal Fiberblend and fit ’n fiber mixture.

In the fall of 2016, her teacher noticed Kayla’s attention span was much better. She was bringing home the average amount of homework for a 5th grader and all her classes seemed to be clicking. At recess, she was even joining the other kids to play, and the smile was reaching her eyes.

“I was sure that I could find a better solution to help her out from the cage her mind was in.”

She was still meeting with a therapist twice a week but not showing much progress. So I incorporated PrepZymes into our daily routine. I would open the capsule right into her fiber mixture. The result was almost instant. Everything clicked and this spring, the therapist felt that Kayla may be able to test out of special education as early as next fall. She’s meeting all her goals and even joined the volleyball team this spring. She’s happy and we haven’t had a morning filled with tears all year.

There is hope for our kids. They don’t have to be trapped inside their own minds. Educate yourself. Get your whole family involved. Be strong and have faith. Our kids deserve it. Thank you, AIM.

IBS Basics

Chronic bowel disorders can make life miserable for people who have them, affecting the absorption and digestion of food by the body and causing symptoms that include constipation and diarrhea. Conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are forms of inflammatory bowel disease.

And then there is irritable bowel syndrome, commonly referred to as IBS. This disorder affects between 25 and 45 million people in the United States and 5 million in Canada, which has one of the highest rates of IBS in the world.

Affecting the colon (large intestine), IBS is deemed a chronic condition that can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms; e.g., abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, cramping, diarrhea and flatulence.

What Causes IBS?

Like so many ailments, the exact cause of IBS is not certain. However, a number of factors can play a role, including bacterial overgrowth, food triggers and stress as well as hormones. Women have double the incidences of IBS compared to men, and research indicates that estrogen and progesterone fluctuations during the menstrual cycle may increase flare-ups.

Whichever factor is involved, IBS negatively affects the normal muscular contractions of the intestinal walls, which move food through the digestive tract until it is eliminated.

With IBS, the contractions can be more intense and for a longer duration, leading to bloating, diarrhea and gas. This type is known as IBS-D (for diarrhea). Or the contractions can be weak, which slows down the passage of food waste and creates dry, hard stools: IBS-C (for constipation). Some sufferers have both symptoms: IBS-M (for mixed).

Reducing IBS Symptoms

For the most part, reducing IBS symptoms can be accomplished through stress management and changes in lifestyle and diet. For example, some common food triggers are broccoli, cabbage, chocolate, fats, milk and alcohol, so any symptom activators should be avoided.

Increased physical activity seems to help most people with IBS, so even walking more can be a positive lifestyle change.

Since stress worsens IBS symptoms, managing stress levels by breathing calmly, getting sufficient sleep, or through meditation, hypnosis, etc., helps to reduce their intensity.

Supplemental Help for IBS

Fiber supplements that contain in­gredients such as psyllium can alleviate constipation when taken with lots of water. And they may create less bloating than fiber-rich foods. The best method to supplementing with Herbal Fiberblend (or fit ’n fiber) for IBS is to start out with small amounts and gradually increase intake over time. Too much too soon can overwhelm the digestive tract of an IBS sufferer.

Additionally, Herbal Fiberblend’s soluble and insoluble fiber and cleansing herbs act as a soothing balm on intestinal walls, and these botani­cals may contri­bute to a return of normal muscular contractions that lead to healthy digestion and elimi­nation.

Repopulating healthy bacteria in the colon with FloraFood can contribute to balanced intestinal flora, which may alleviate symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain and irregular bowel movements.

The easily assimilated nutrients in BarleyLife may help to counteract the food absorption issues associated with many bowel disorders, providing a natural source of vitamins and minerals along with a wealth of plant nutrients that support whole-body health.

Note: Herbal Fiberblend, fit ‘n fiber, FloraFood and BarleyLife are products from The AIM Companies, a wholefood juice concentrate and nutritional supplement company with a network marketing opportunity . Established in 1982.
