On April 11, 2018, I went with my husband, Don, to his appointment with our primary care physician, suspecting a diagnosis of diabetes. Don’s symptoms were unquenchable thirst, constant urgency to urinate, fatigue, tingling in his feet, vision issues and other indications of this disease.

The doctor conducted an A1C test that read 10.4. She was shocked and said that Don had probably been a diabetic for some time now.

After sharing my primary peritoneal cancer testimony with her, I asked her if she would be OK if we tried similar measures to see if we could get Don’s blood sugar under control. For my cancer, I had used a mind, body and spirit treatment versus chemotherapy or radiation. I had been given six months to live. That was 10 years ago. She agreed and said, “I will see you back here in three months to see how you are doing.”

We went home that day and started our program. We ate a whole-food diet, no sugar or white foods, no bread and plenty of green vegetables. With every meal he took a capsule of AIM GlucoChrom. After dinner, we would ride our bikes for four miles. Intermittent fasting became part of our routine also. Don had been using BarleyLife for a while along with some supplements, so we continued those.

The doctor wanted Don to take three prescriptions—Metformin, Lisinopril and
Lipitor—saying that diabetics die of heart disease, not diabetes. These drugs have terrible side effects, and we did not want to deal with this. Don had already overcome acid reflux and high blood pressure, so we felt we could control the diabetes too.

On July 18, we went back for the follow-up visit. To the doctor’s surprise, Don had lost 20 pounds, his blood pressure was 116/66 and his A1C was 6.4. She was shocked and said she did not ever think we could achieve this success.

My A1C was 5.5 and prior to the visit she thought I may be borderline dia­be­tic. I can say, if you put your mind to this, it can be done naturally!

Thanks, AIM, for all the resources you give us to live healthy lives!

A Life with AIM

Dr. Mary Ruth Swope
Oct. 28, 1919 – Sept. 1, 2018

In the world of AIM Diamonds, there are individuals who shine exceedingly bright during their time as Members. One of those brilliant lights has faded away, and it is appropriate that The AIM Companies™ sends word to the entire AIM family of the passing of Dr. Mary Ruth Swope at the age of 98.

Interestingly enough, Dr. Swope was initially reluctant to become a Member, having declined on three separate occasions of being asked to join by David and Cece Brewer, Royal Emerald Directors. After she prayed on their offered opportunity, God told her, “The way is clear. There are no hindrances.” The year was 1982.

Dr. Swope went on to become a Chairman’s Club Director and, in 2016, she was inducted into the Eight Million Dollar Club, incredible achievements for someone who originally had no intention of being in business. She attributed her record at AIM as an outstanding business builder to God having a plan for her life.

Part of the plan was having a wonderful post-retirement life with less daily pressure and more time for spiritual development, study, travel and gardening, all the things she was unable to do while working as a university dean and professor. Dr. Swope had attained her doctorate in administration from Columbia University in New York City.

After joining AIM, she educated herself on the nutritional benefits of barley grass and the AIM Member Income Plan. Then Dr. Swope began giving away AIM’s juice powder of young barley plants, asking for only testimonials in return. Recipients shared their personal stories on how BarleyLife was beneficial for a wide variety of health issues, including skin problems, heart disease, fatigue, diabetes and arthritis.

Opportunities to speak all around the country came her way, along with radio and TV interviews that generated phone calls and letters from people wanting to know more about BarleyLife. AIM president and co-owner Dennis Itami acknowledged that Dr. Swope reached more people directly through radio and TV broadcasts than any other Member. She also authored a number of books.

The wealth she gained from her AIM business was donated to pastors, ministries, orphans, widows and a variety of charities. Once she reached her 70s, Dr. Swope’s efforts to help others were assisted by Charlotte Bates, her aide and friend. This incredible team worked non-stop and traveled to most U.S. states and over 20 countries in an effort to help others.

Dr. Mary Ruth Swope and the time of her life with AIM will always be cherished and fondly remembered.

A Product by Any Other Name

Member Income Plan Our Most Overlooked

There’s an incredible product that The AIM Companies™ makes available to all Members, but you won’t find it in the product section on the order form. And it’s not something that everyone is going to be interested in, as incredible as it is.

At the same time, it isn’t a product you take or apply to your skin. But when applied to life, it has beneficially changed the lives of many AIM Members and can change the life of anyone who chooses to take advantage of its benefits.

The Member Income Plan

Selling the Member Income Plan is the backbone of AIM network marketing because AIM products are sold by independent distributors, not by retailers. And unlike retail businesses that expand by opening more and more branches, network marketing expands by having more and more independent distributors: AIM Members who believe in and use the AIM products and enjoy the benefits of the Member Income Plan by sharing their knowledge.

At the same time, when Members are selling this income-earning product, it is something they talk about on a need-to-know basis. In other words, AIM independent distributors develop a sense for knowing when it’s the right time to introduce the Member Income Plan.

Some new Members express an interest in an AIM home-based business right from the start while others may take their time to latch on to this opportunity. And then there are those who want to use AIM nutrition only without a side of business. That’s okay. Not everyone is interested, but for those who are, the Member Income Plan is a gift that keeps on giving.

Since 1982, active AIM inde­pendent distributors have earned and been paid regular commissions on an on-time basis. That is just one of the many benefits of being a Member who has shown an interest in the Member Income Plan and followed through by building an AIM business. And The AIM Companies™ will always support each and every Member who shines bright like a diamond.

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.

Bees and BarleyLife

Shared by Arnold and Judy Berkin, AIM Star Sapphire Directors,

We first learned of green barley powder in 1987. Judy suffered from anemia constantly and took iron medication with its associated problems. After six weeks of daily use of this green powder, there was a major change in her blood iron levels.

Then I got the courage to try this “green stuff” myself. Three years previously, I had a major heart episode. After taking these greens for three months, I felt well enough to stop taking all the prescribed heart medication I was on.

When AIM came to Australia, we didn’t have to be convinced; we joined immediately. In 1995, we were were awarded a trip to San Francisco, sponsored by The AIM Companies™. That was a great experience.

Our favorite products are BarleyLife, RediBeets and Just Carrots powders. In October 2016, Judy had a bad fall and broke her upper right arm. We then added CalciAIM to the Garden Trio, and she is doing fine now.

As beekeepers, we learned that if our bees were struggling to find good pollen sources, they would consume BarleyLife. It amazed us how it helps to raise the crude protein level in their bodies.

To get the BarleyLife to the bees, we just sprinkle about 10 grams of the powder in the bottom box where the brood— young developing bees—is located. We do this once a month, and it also helps them in cleaning the hive.

BarleyLife doesn’t improve the actual honey, but it does improve the health of the bees, so they can produce more honey with a lower moisture content. By eating the BarleyLife, the bees are more resilient and able to cope better with environmental stress.

Most honeys have health benefits for people. Citrus honey is helpful with respiratory problems. All honeys give an energy boost to your day. The very dark honeys help with lower bowel conditions. For example, a person who had been told they needed to have major bowel surgery came to us in 1994. They have been taking BarleyLife and Banksia honey ever since and have not required any surgery.

All AIM Members are welcome to visit us. Just give us a call or send an email to make sure we will be home.

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.

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.
