I Will Never Be Without AIM BarleyLife!

Shared by Fred Hampshire, AIM Director

Since 1997, I’ve been promoting and using AIM products, having overcome bursitis, diverticulosis, gingivitis, high blood pressure and high blood sugar with no further need of medications.

Over the years I had much exposure to industrial toxins, molds, asbestos and pesticides, but, nevertheless, I was shocked to be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in my neck in 2014. Against my doctor’s advice, I adamantly kept taking BarleyLife along with other AIM products during radiation treatments. I lived cancer-free for two years.

Another shocker came in 2016 when cancer was detected in my liver as well as a stage 4 tumor in my abdomen. This was spreading to blood vessels in my left leg, cutting off circulation and causing infection. I had to have chemotherapy or I would have lost my leg.

Again, I was told to stop taking AIM supplements, but I responded, “Not on your life!” Each morning before chemo, I took BarleyLife, Herbal Fiberblend and CellSparc 360. I went through the treatments with lots of energy and without nausea but was left with a swollen ankle that caused much discomfort while walking. I was told to learn to live with it but Cell Wellness Restorer came to my rescue.

And I’m so grateful for The AIM Companies™. I mean, where would I be without my BarleyLife?

Eight months after diagnosis, I was cancer-free! My oncologist told me that if anyone had told him that I would be sitting across from him cancer-free following chemotherapy, he would have disagreed. Even the radiologist who did the PET scan to rule out cancer anywhere in my body was amazed as she
was expecting my whole body to light up yellow revealing cancer but not so.

My medical team was very impressed with my results and have now advised me to continue my supplement regime. I’m almost eighty years old and plan to stay healthy and physically fit.

Through this difficult time, I received wonderful care from my wife, Marlene, and great encouragement from Edna Smith, Chairman’s Club Director. She prayed with me frequently and always reminded me to keep trusting the Lord. And I’m so grateful for The AIM Companies. I mean, where would I be without my BarleyLife?

The AIM Companies — Our MLM Business

 

Shared by Rita and Eno Vandertil, AIM Star Sapphire Directors

In January 2002, we started our first jar of BarleyLife and Herbal Fiberblend. I shared AIM with a few people, but I wasn’t interested in building a business because I didn’t think I knew enough or that anyone would listen to me.

At a Women’s Aglow meeting in October 2004, two ladies told me that there would be “suddenlies” in my life, maybe in business. The next spring the Lord brought Ken Campbell (AIM Director) into my life. His miraculous recovery from leukemia and prostate cancer gave me a passion to share the AIM products.

I began attending AIM meetings to learn more about the products and improve my own health. This made me realize the importance of offering meetings, so I have helped to organize many in our area.

It has been such a blessing for Eno and me to attend many AIM Celebrations.

When planning meetings, I do an email blast; however, I still like to phone my Members personally to invite them. It gives me an opportunity to catch up on what is going on in their lives, and I find that people still like that personal invitation. Even if the member does not attend the meeting, I have been able to connect with them. The key is FOLLOW-UP, FOLLOW-UP,  FOLLOW-UP, especially after the meeting is over to see if they need help in any way.

It has been such a blessing for Eno and me to attend many AIM Celebrations. I won a prize to go to San Antonio in 2006. Eno thought I should go by myself, but later decided he would join me. We enjoyed it so much that Eno told me to work hard to be able to participate every year. We have been able to see many lovely places and meet wonderful people who have become dear friends.

We are very thankful for the integrity of The AIM Companies™ and for the help and encouragement we receive from them and from our upline. I enjoy being part of the AIM Prayer Team and continue to pray for The AIM Companies to excel in every area and to be able to provide the best products on the market!

Alex Frisk in the Net!

frisk

AIM nutrition powered AIM-sponsored Athlete Alex Frisk through academic and athletic demands at Red Deer College during the fall of 2016.

“The term was awesome! I found it easier to be awake all day in terms of energy,” Alex stated. “Even staying after class to study in the library after getting through a day of studying. Not taking naps at all. And the best grades I’ve gotten yet.”

Alex’s knee injury that she received while playing on a men’s roller hockey team in July 2016 hasn’t held her back on the ice. As one of three goalies on the Red Deer College Queens, Alex helped her team to reach first place in the league. Highlights of the fall include being in net for the first annual Pink in the Rink fundraiser in support of women’s cancer. “My parents were there to watch me play,” Alex said. And in the game that put her team in first place, Alex had a shutout, blocking twenty-three shots on net.

In April, Alex will participate in the trials for a spot on Team Canada’s roller hockey team. And in May, she is getting married, so 2017 is shaping up to be an incredible year for this talented young woman.

The Immune System and the Cancer Connection

Feb.png

In 1971, the National Cancer Act waged a war on cancer. Massive research followed although cancer continues to be the second leading cause of death to this day.

Three main treatments are given to people with cancer: surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Other forms of treatment like hormonal therapy, biological therapy and stem cell transplant are also used, depending on the type of cancer. And there is a barrage of drugs prescribed for all forms of treatment.

Medical science has also explored the idea of using the body’s immune system to battle cancer: immunotherapy. The year 2013 saw the introduction of checkpoint inhibitors, drugs that trigger the immune system to identify and destroy cancer cells.

Sometimes the immune system is not able to recognize cancerous cells. The presence of specific proteins can make it seem cancer cells are normal to the immune system’s T-cells. It’s like being surrounded by friends, a few of which turn out to be mortal enemies. And they can multiply if left undetected.

Checkpoint inhibitor drugs block the ability of cancer cells to deceive the immune system, allowing T-cells to identify and kill them. But supporting the immune  system with these drugs can cause side effects, including a variety of inflammatory conditions.

There is also a long-standing belief that a natural, whole-body approach to battling diseases such as cancer can reactivate the body’s ability to heal itself with a strengthened immune system and without harmful side effects. More and more doctors are saying as much in magazine articles, books, videos, TED talks, etc. , including Dr. Lissa Rankin (New York Times bestselling author of Mind Over Medicine) and Dr. Dean Ornish (New York Times bestselling author of The Spectrum).

It is believed that the key requirements of the body to heal itself are:

  • A low-fat, whole-food, plant-based diet
  • Moderate exercise
  • Stress management
  • Social contact

The AIM Healthy Cell Concept has always recommended these requirements, and The AIM Companies has been providing supplemental, whole-food nutrition that supports a strong immune system since 1982.

The following products are just a handful in the AIM lineup: BarleyLife, AIMega and Herbal Fiberblend deliver essential plant-based nutrients that maintain good health. Peak Endurance and Red Rush suppor t exercise programs. Composure contributes to stress management. And being part of the AIM family offers connections to likeminded individuals.

The fact is that a strong immune system is vital for maintaining good health. And it is a widely held view that by giving the body what it requires to strengthen its defense, it can heal and take care of itself for a lifetime.

Long-Time Success with Herbal Fiberblend

Shared by Mili and Henry Huff, AIM Group Builders in Rossville, Georgia

One day I was in the AIM office and Ron Wright (AIM Senior Vice President and co-owner) handed me a plastic bag full of different kinds of not-so-good-smelling herbs. He said they were for healthy bowels and asked me to try them. I knew that one of my AIM customers had chronic bowel trouble, so, without telling Ron, I accepted them and gave them to her. In a few days, she called and said her bowel trouble was completely gone.

Some time later, I was traveling to Hawaii and offered to put on a couple of AIM product meetings there. Toward the end of one of the meetings, I could tell that one lady in the front row was anxious to say something, so I acknowledged her waving hand. “Aren’t you going to talk about the new herbal product that AIM is coming out with?” she asked. ”Why don’t you?” I offered with a smile, whereupon she got up and enthusiastically told of intestinal parasites and other problems she no longer had.

Flying home, I decided to give the herbs an honest try. I bought some. Ten days went by, and I didn’t have any bowel movements! I kept taking it. Two days later, I had my bowel movement. It looked exactly like one of the pictures in a booklet that Chairman’s Club Director Teresa Schumacher had given to me called Cleansing the Body and the Colon for a Happier and Healthier You. I learned that the molecules in some of AIM’s herbs are smaller than the molecules of the accumulated, hard-packed grunge inside some colons; the herbs work their way between the grunge and the wall of the colon.

Happy to say, I’ve had healthy bowel movements every single day since then. On the rare occasion that I get diarrhea, I just sit down with a teaspoon of Herbal Fiberblend mixed into a small bowl of applesauce and the diarrhea clears right up.

My husband still takes it every few days to stay regular. I am now seventy-one and my husband is seventy-three. In July we’ll be taking a cruise to Alaska for our 50th wedding anniversary and think we might possibly be the only people on board our age who are not on any kind of drugs or medications. Praise the Lord for Ron and Opal, Dennis and Kay, Teresa Schumacher and AIM’s nutritional supplements.

The Latest Scoop on Fiber

Fiber

Our favorite carbohydrate is making headlines again. Best known for its ability to promote good digestive health and combat cholesterol, fiber has been one of the main staples of a healthy diet since diets were invented. And yet, still, new discoveries are being made all the time. Here are some of the latest:

Fiber May Help Prevent Lung Diseases

A study published in the January issue of the Annals of the American Thoracic Society examined data gathered in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. They found that of the people who consumed the most fiber, — more than 17.5 grams of fiber daily—68.3% had normal lung function and that only 14.8% had airway restriction. In comparison, of those who consumed the least fiber—less than 10.75 grams—50.1% had normal lung function and 29.8% had airway restriction. The researchers cite fiber’s ability to combat inflammation and regulate the gut microbiome as the source of the possible health benefits.

A Low-Fiber Diet May Damage Gut Flora for Generations

This study comes to us from the July 2015 issue of Nature. Scientists fed mice low-fiber diets and found that certain strains of gut bacteria died off. These bacteria did not reappear when the mice were re-administered a high-fiber diet. After four mouse generations, most of the beneficial strains of gut bacteria had gone extinct due to the low-fiber diets. (This is another good reason for people to take FloraFood, too!)

Avoiding Fiber May Cause Crohn’s Disease to Flare Up

Researchers surveyed over 1,100 Crohn’s Disease sufferers about the behavior of their disease and their diets. From the data that they collated, they were able to determine that patients were approximately 40% less likely to have a disease flare up when they did not avoid high-fiber foods compared to those that did. In general, Crohn’s Disease sufferers who consumed the most fiber were the least likely to have flare ups period, according to the research published in the December 2015 issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

More Indication that Fiber Contributes to Weight Loss

According to a story published in the Washington Post, Under Armour—the athletic apparel company—looked at data from 427,000 of its MyFitnessPal app users who lost weight. Those who came closest to their weight-loss goals showed nearly identical data when compared to those who did not achieve optimum weight-loss results: similar calories consumed, protein, fat, carbs and exercise. The only difference, those who slimmed down most ate about 29% more fiber.

The AIM Companies provides fiber through two amazing supplements: Herbal Fiberblend and fit ‘n fiber. Both are effective ways of adding fiber to the diet to aid with weight management and digestive health. They can be combined into one potent super-fiber formula that tastes fantastic!

Celebrate a Healthy Cell Environment with AIM

AIM HFB

AIM’s Mission and Promise to You 

In April, we celebrate our planet and the diverse and abundant organisms (like us) that are living well thanks to the goodness and bounty of the natural world. So when selecting wholefood nutritional supplements, the first thing you want to do is to make sure that whatever you choose comes direct from nature and doesn’t contain harmful chemicals that can pollute your body. The AIM Companies knows this. That’s why we only use plants that are tested for the absence of over 300 pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other harmful chemicals. The USDA reports that 50% of foods that are labeled “organically certified” still contain chemical residues. Our Quality Assurance Department will reject any ingredients that test positive. The AIM Companies goes above and beyond to ensure that you receive the highest-quality, healthiest wholefood products and nutritional supplements.

Cleansing 

If you’re feeling worn out or if you’re walking around all day in a haze, if you feel bloated, constipated or congested, if you get sick more often than normal or have worsening allergies, it could be due to a toxin buildup. Your body works hard at removing toxins through organs like the liver, lungs and kidneys, but if you’re eating too much fat, sugar and meat, toxins can begin to accumulate rapidly and may be a real nuisance to your wellbeing. Luckily, there are quite a few nutritional strategies for detoxifying.

Fiber

Fiber is one of the best nutritional tools for cleansing. Sometimes toxins and other gunk can accumulate inside the walls of your intestines which can prevent you from absorbing valuable nutrients. A healthy dose of deep-cleansing fit ‘n fiber or Herbal Fiberblend may be able to help keep your digestive system running smoothly and your intestine walls gunk- and toxin-free.

Lymphatic Cleanse

The lymphatic system is an often overlooked but highly essential part of the immune system. It acts as a filter for the body’s ubiquitous interstitial fluid, and it also transports fats and vitamins. Herbal Release is the pinnacle of lymphatic cleanses.

Probiotics 

The gut does more than digest food. It’s also home to a wild environment unlike any other on the planet, the gut microbiome. And it is estimated that 70% of our immune system is housed in our midsections. All those unpleasant, aforementioned toxin-bringers (sugar, fats, meat, etc.) and things like stress and illness can wreak havoc on your internal environment. That’s why a probiotic like FloraFood is so important. It restores balance to your body by promoting the growth of healthy, natural gut bacteria.

Pollution

The World Health Organization estimates that over 1 million people die each year from the effects of air pollution. Most of those deaths and many related health problems can be tied back to oxidative stress.

Antioxidants 

High levels of oxidative stress means that your body is out of balance. When pollution is high, the body becomes inundated with free radicals and cannot produce enough antioxidants to fend them off. That’s why it’s important to reach for an antioxidant supplement like Proancynol 2000 or a wholefood product with a high ORAC score like BarleyLife. Each contains the building blocks of free-radical protection that your body can use to defend itself.

Dietary Nitrate 

Air pollution has also been linked to endothelial dysfunction dysfunction (aka dysfunction of the veins), and pollution caused by heavy traffic has been shown to increase blood pressure and decrease blood flow. Scientists tested beet juice to see if it would help to mitigate this phenomenon. When people drank beet juice, their blood flows were unhampered and improved. You can obtain your daily dose of dietary nitrate from Red Rush or RediBeets.

Vitamin C

A study published in Epidemiology looked at subjects who suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). On days when the air pollution levels were highest, their symptoms were the worst and many were admitted to the hospital. However, if they had low levels of vitamin C, the chances of a COPD sufferer ending up in the hospital was 1.2 times greater, leading researchers to believe that vitamin C’s antioxidant properties offered some protection against the pollution. And you can find vitamin C in Peak Endurance and BarleyLife Xtra.

Sun Damage 

Although humans, animals and all the plants need sunlight to survive, too much of a good thing can be a bit dangerous and unpleasant. That’s why it’s important to be responsible about soaking up those vitamin D-filled rays. One nutritional tip for keeping your skin healthy and young in the sun is through the use of omega-3 fatty acids. Sun damage can cause wrinkles, and omega-3s may help reduce inflammatory compounds that speed up the wrinkling process. Get your essential fatty acids from AIMega.
