AIM at Alpenblick Farm

Shared by Petra Stevenson, AIM Director

My husband, Robert, grew up on his family’s mountainside, organic farm in Switzerland, and he and I have operated a Swiss-themed farm in Canada since 1968. Alpenblick Farm is our organic livestock haven, where animals roam freely on nearly 200 acres of land.

I’ve been an AIM Member since 2005, and I avidly use a variety of products, including Mag-nificence CWR, lotion and spray. Over the years, AIM products have become a significant factor for all creatures at Alpenblick farm. For instance, we had to deal with a severe problem with a calf we named Elkie. He was raised mostly inside the barn after his mother passed away. One day, we felt it was time to let him enjoy the outdoors with the other cattle. When Elkie returned to the barn in the evening, he seemed weak and had to lie down immediately.

The following morning, Elkie still could not get up by himself. I gave him vitamins and minerals and lots of water and hay. Two days later, his condition had not changed, so we built a winch to lift him up and check his legs. Elkie’s hind legs were not so bad, just weak, but his front legs were buckled with swollen knee and ankle joints and would not straighten out.

I started massaging his legs and applied Mag-nificence spray, mainly to the joints. I also made a foot soak with the CWR. Then he needed to lie down again. Later that day, we lifted Elkie again, and his front legs looked a bit better, but he still could not put any weight on them. I applied lots of Mag-nificence spray again on all the joints of his front legs and massaged it in, and then bandaged the ankle joints.

The following morning, the swelling in his knees was almost totally gone. He could straighten them out but not his ankles, so I kept applying the spray twice daily. On the third day, Elkie could support his body weight but still needed help getting up and down. By the fourth day, he managed to get up and down by himself.

Thanks to Mag-nificence CWR and spray, Elkie can move again. Without these products, we would have lost him.

Natural Nutrition from AIM

Shared by Rebecca Liu, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

Since joining The AIM Companies (AIM) in 1988, we have benefited a lot! Not only financially, but more importantly, we have learned so many concepts about maintaining good health through the use of natural nutrition from AIM. And I have a number of experiences that I would like to share.

In April 2017, I broke out in hives, so on some parts of my body, large areas of rashes and bumps appeared on my skin. Some looked like big mosquito bites that were red, itchy and swollen; the worst were near my waist. These eruptions popped up usually in the middle of every night. It was really annoying!

I went to a pharmacy to ask what I should do, and the pharmacist gave me an antihistamine, which is a drug used to treat allergic reactions. I only tried it once and didn’t want to use it anymore because I didn’t believe allopathic medicine would cure this skin problem.

Later, it occurred to me that I could apply Mag-nificence lotion to the affected area. After about 10 minutes, the redness, burning and swelling disappeared and the itching stopped. I continued using AIM’s topical magnesium for a few months and got rid of this skin problem. No more suffering during the night. Another great benefit is that magnesium helps you sleep, so I get a good night’s sleep. It’s so great . . . killing two birds with one stone.

For many years, I had a poorly functioning digestive system. Although many others suffer from constipation, my problem was loose, watery bowel movements. I had to go to the bathroom five or six times a day, even once or twice during the middle of the night. Again, it was very annoying. Not long ago, I started taking FloraFood on a regular basis. Wow! A few days later I was having regular bowel movements once or twice a day.

I also treasure Composure. I take two capsules before bedtime. It helps improve the quality of my sleep. I feel much better, more refreshed and full of energy the morning after having a deep sleep throughout the night.

From all of these experiences I’ve learned “The body is the best doctor, and food is the best medicine.” Hurray! Long Live AIM!

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.

You Snooze You Lose

The definition of snooze is a short, light sleep. It can be considered a luxury to have a snooze in the middle of a work day. The truth is that we live in a world where people often need afternoon naps because they don’t get enough sleep. But if you are only having a snooze at night, you are losing out on 7 – 9 hours of uninterrupted, healthy sleep.

Most people are aware that eating wholesome, natural food and exercising regularly contribute to good health. These good habits are lifestyle choices. Sleep is just as important for your health, and you don’t have a choice. You have to sleep.

The number of hours and quality of sleep you get has a great impact on your state of health just like the amount and quality of food you eat and exercise you get. You can have an ideal diet and exercise routine, but even these good habits will be negatively impacted by sleep deprivation, which is all-too-common in modern society.

Sleep Statistics

According to the The National Sleep Foundation, “50 to 70 million Americans are affected by chronic sleep disorders and intermittent sleep problems that can significantly diminish health, alertness and safety.” In 2017, Statistics Canada reported that “Short sleep duration and poor sleep quality are prevalent among Canadian adults. About one-third sleep fewer hours per night than recommended for optimal physical and mental health.” In fact, Canada ranks third among the world’s most sleep-deprived countries, just one step ahead of the USA in fourth place. Neither of these standings is a source of pride when ranking the worst sleepers in the world!

What Keeps You Awake at Night?

At some point in time, everyone has a poor night of sleep. It’s not fatal. It’s a part of being alive. But when poor sleep becomes a regular occurrence, it’s a nightmare for your daily life in terms of memory, concentration and mood and an increased risk of health problems, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and weight gain.

A survey of 384 business leaders by the Center for Creative Leadership revealed that two major psychological reasons for sleepless nights are:

  1. Work-Related Stress
  2. Dissatisfaction with Work-Life Balance

Of course there are many other things that can keep people awake at night—shift work, family obligations, financial concerns, depression, sleep apnea, hormone imbalances, etc. Some people even believe that sleeping is a waste of time or that less is more, including some famous folks past and present who didn’t and don’t get enough sleep on purpose.

For most people who lie awake at night, tossing and turning right through the wee hours of the morning, a good sleep is healing. And getting enough sleep on a regular basis provides a number of psychological and physical benefits.

How Many Hours Should You Sleep?

The target of 8 hours of sleep at night is still relevant for most people although it varies according to age. Some people’s sleep patterns are consistent while others are all over the clock. If you are not sleeping well, there are unnatural and natural ways to sleep better.

To Pill or not to Pill

Sleeping pills are the most common remedies, but taking such medications can result in many negative side effects. You really don’t want to depend on any drug to sleep properly because one of the side effects is psychological dependence.

AIM for Good Sleep

The AIM Companies promotes the Healthy Cell Concept to maintain overall health and getting enough sleep is a recognized factor in maintaining healthy cells, which, in turn, support a healthy body. Along with eating wholesome food and exercising, taking AIM supplements gives your cells a nutritional advantage.

And when you can’t sleep, AIM has nutritional and topical products that promote restful nights. AIM delivers Composure on both sides of the United States and Canada border.  Composure is a natural health product containing herbs that have a calming effect on stressed-out minds and bodies. For those who occasionally or regularly have difficulty getting to sleep, having Composure within reach offers a helping hand to dreamland.

Magnesium can be thought of a relaxation mineral that plays a pivotal role in activating the neurotransmitters that calm the mind and body. AIM provides the Mag-nificence line of topical magnesium that is truly magnificent. You have a choice of lotion, spray and CWR bath additive, all of which deliver this essential mineral by applying magnesium to your skin.

A long night of health-promoting sleep is an essential ingredient for good health. Composure and Mag-nificence can assist you in getting to that desirable state of rest.

A Love Relationship with Mag-nificence CWR

Shared by Jacquelyn Frimpter, AIM Director

A few years ago, I was taking my morning walk with my dog. All was going well when I suddenly stepped wrong and twisted my ankle. But I continued our walk without incident.

I had a busy day scheduled, which began at my church where I had to do some computer work. As I was leaving the secretary said to me “Jacquie, you weren’t limping when you came in.”

My ankle had begun to feel very uncomfortable. So instead of completing my day’s tasks, I decided to head back home. By the time I got home, the pain was so bad I literally had to crawl into my house. Once inside, I elevated my leg and tried lymph massage but without much success. I was in agony, so I called my husband and he came home to help me.

We did some soaking with hot and cold water. Suddenly I remembered that I had AIM’s Cell Wellness Restorer (now replaced with improved Mag-nificence CWR) in my cupboard. I didn’t know much about it but had been to an AIM celebration and remembered hearing good things about CWR, so why not try it?

We soaked my ankle in the CWR for about 30 minutes. Then later at bedtime, I added it to my bath water and again soaked for about 30 minutes.

As a side note, I had planned to meet a friend the following day to go shopping and have lunch. I was sure this would not be possible and yet when I woke the next morning, I had no pain in my ankle. But I wrapped it with an elastic wrap just for support, put on my shoes and went to meet my friend. We walked all afternoon. I eventually had to take off the wrap because it was coming apart anyway. My pain was gone. Praise the Lord!

Mag-nificence CWR is a constant in my cupboards. I continue to soak with it in my baths. CWR and I have a love relationship!

NOTE: Mag-nificence topical magnesium is not only available in the CWR bath additive, but also in a moisturizing shea butter and coconut oil lotion and a convenient-size spray.

I love AIM’s Mag-nificence lotion for my sore muscles.

A Leader Thinks Outside the Box

Being an independent distrib­utor opens a world of ways to share the benefits of AIM products. It’s a great idea to always keep your options open and look for new opportunities that you may have never considered.

Darlene Vandermey, AIM Director, decided to try something different after attending The AIM Companies’ 2017 Celebration in Nashville and hearing comments from her friends Mary Weber, AIM Star Sapphire Director, and Barb Snodgrass, AIM Director. “I needed to think outside the box,” Darlene admitted.

Approaching her church committee, Darlene offered to teach classes entitled “Achieve Vibrant Health Physically, Spiritually and Mentally.” Not only was her kind proposal given the green light, the space she needed would be free, so she did not have to charge for the classes. “I thought people might bring friends,” Darlene said, “so it could also work as a community outreach.”

For six weeks from mid-September to October 2017, Darlene taught on Wednesdays, giving people the choice of morning or evening classes so that they never had to miss out on the valuable information she wished to share. “The average attendance between the two classes was eighteen people,” she noted.

Focusing on the Healthy Cell Concept (HCC), Darlene showed one component of the AIM DVD each week. The informative 1½-hour classes included AIM products for each HCC topic, a scripture verse, visuals, and aspects of Darlene’s recovery from fibromyalgia by using AIM products and making lifestyle changes. Week six concentrated on digestive health.

Darlene regularly empha­sized the out­standing quality control of AIM products. One class included a “Self-Care” session, offering hand soaks in Mag-nificence CWR and BarleyLife facials. During class breaks, participants enjoyed AIM drinks and healthy snacks featuring AIM ingre­dients. Recipes for each were provided on the final class.

At the end of six weeks, there was a display of scrapbook pages with pictures and sayings that Darlene had prepared weekly. During the last class, she held a prize draw and shared the benefits of becoming an AIM Member, having played the DVD of the “In Partnership For Life” song at the end of each class.

By thinking outside the box, Darlene found a new way of sharing both the AIM products and the Healthy Cell Concept. “Many of those who attended are now AIM Mem­bers enjoying vibrant health,” Darlene stated. “Thanks, AIM,
for amazing products, sup­port and being there for Members!”

Reversing Magnesium Deficiency

Magnesium is a mineral that’s gaining a lot of ground these days possibly because of the likelihood of there being less of it in the ground. With nutrient-depleted soil having a serious effect on food crops, there are likely less magnesium-rich whole grains, lentils and green leafy vegetables being consumed.

More to the point, the popularity of processed and packaged food is a key factor in people eating far less nutritious food. The result is a deficiency of essential dietary nutrients, including minerals such as magnesium.

Based on data published by the United Stated Department of Agriculture, a 2005-06 food survey of 8,437 people of all ages revealed that nearly one-half of all individuals had an inadequate intake of magnesium.1

As a stand-alone mineral, magnesium plays such an important role in the body that a person cannot afford to have inadequate amounts. The health and function of bones, the heart, muscles and nerves depends on magnesium. In fact, there are over 300 magnesium-dependent enzymes that cannot react efficiently without this mineral. As an extreme example, the production of cellular energy—ATP—would simply cease without magnesium.

Some of the most noticeable symptoms of magnesium deficiency involve muscle cramps, spasms, aches, etc. That’s because magnesium is needed for the proper contraction and relaxation of muscle tissue.

The Mag-nificence Answer

Fortunately, there are simple solutions to ensure that magnesium intake is sufficient. The Mag-nificence line of topical magnesium offers a choice of applications: bath additive, lotion and spray. A combined use of all three speeds up the delivery of magnesium to cells.

Mag-nificence replenishes magnesium levels and offers relief from those all-too-common muscular issues. Add magnesium-rich CWR to a hot bath for a relieving soak. Apply the moisturizing lotion around the affected area or use the spray directly on skin to soothe muscle cramps, spasms or aches. These are magnificent solutions to a magnesium deficiency, so choose Mag-nificence.

I love AIM’s Mag-nificence lotion for my sore muscles.
