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!

Red Rush Powers Sue On!

In April 2018, AIM-Sponsored Athlete Sue Phillips-Leclerc faced another beast . . . the Spartan Beast in New Jersey that is. This means Sue endured over 12 miles and more than 30 obstacles that include climbing ropes and crawling under barbed wire until crossing the finish line.

This is something Sue does for fun: testing her strength, endurance and resolve. In the end, she placed 3rd in her age group in the Spartan Beast. Red Rush is an essential supplement for her intensive training and challenging competitions.

The Beastly Beginning

“I guess I was always big into working out, mostly just going to the gym and lifting weights,” Sue explained. “I was a spin instructor for probably 15 years. And I love the mountains and trail running.”

After Sue entered her first Spartan Beast in Killington, Vermont, she was hooked. Both her husband, John Leclerc, and her daughter, Red Rush Athlete Taylor Witkiewicz, were great motivators because they competed as well.

Mountain Life

Sue and her family live in Plattsburgh, New York, in the Adirondacks, so their virtual backyard contains 46 high-peak mountains. “We spend a lot of time on the trails in the summertime,” Sue said. “Sometimes we’ll go hiking, and I’m religious about taking Red Rush. But occasionally my husband will say, ‘Oh man, I forgot to drink my Red Rush!’ It’s so funny the difference that it makes. It gets the blood flowing and increases stamina.”

Even their 2018 travels took them to high heights and physical challenges: Banff and Jasper in the Canadian Rockies and the 6-Pack of Peaks Challenge™ in Southern California. Red Rush came along for the bumpy ride.

Training Schedule

Sue’s day job as a speech therapist in a public school means that she has an interesting work-week exercise routine. “I get up at 3 a.m. and train for 2 hours, a combination of running and weight training,” Sue stated. Her husband set up a workout room in their garage that she half-jokingly refers to as a torture chamber. “I work out six days a week.”

Her job gives her the summers off to focus on training for upcoming events, such as the August 10 North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships and the September 15 Killington “ULTRA”, which is at least 30 miles and double the obstacles of the Beast.

To power Sue on, Red Rush will be her supplement of choice because “Red Rush makes a world of difference for training and competitions.”

Meghan Is Victorious!

Shared by Jane Bosman, AIM Director

Our daughter, Lisa, was 20 weeks pregnant when we found out that her baby had a brain cyst. When Meghan was born, she seemed perfectly healthy, and we were all thrilled. But at six months old, Meghan’s right eye continued to cross. In December 2017, an appointment with an optometrist sent our family on a terrifying and prayer-filled journey.

It was deter­mined that Meghan had a detached retina in her right eye and lesions behind both eyes. And the cyst caused a lack of development in the corpus callosum, affecting communication between the left and right side of her brain. Then the infantile spasms began. Thankfully, Meghan re­sponded well to seizure medication.

The eye issues, cyst and spasms were three pieces of a puzzle that confirmed Meghan has an extremely rare genetic disorder: Aicardi syndrome.

In January 2018, Meghan began having aspiration and reflux issues. After being fed, she would arch her back and have screaming fits. She began losing weight. Meghan had bowel movements maybe once a week. We thought a change from liquid to some solid food might help, but it made her choke and turn blue, so Meghan had to be hospitalized for three days.

Two new medications for aspira­tion and reflux were prescribed for Meghan along with instructions to feed her half mixtures of formula and PediaSure®, which has a lot of sugar. I will never forget the day Lisa added AIM nutrition to the mix after I suggested giving Meghan the Garden Trio. She began to thrive.

Meghan seemed to respond well to the BarleyLife after only a few hours, and she began having regular bowel movements. Within a week, the PediaSure® was removed. Then we added ProPeas so that the formula could also be removed because Lisa continued to breastfeed her. In 10 days, Meghan gained almost 2 pounds.

The doctors and thera­pists are thrilled with how Meghan’s little body is thriving. She is now able to “army crawl” anywhere she wants to and able to sit up on her own. Her development is symmetrical even though doctors thought she would not have much use of her left side. She is a MIRACLE and such a JOY.

We have trusted God and continue to trust Him with the future of our little Meghan. And we are so thankful for the answers to prayer that we have received and some of those answers have been in the form of the AIM products.

Meghan’s middle name is Victoria, so we have claimed her to be Victorious Meghan. Psalm 32:7 hangs over her head on her crib: For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of VICTORY!

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.

BarleyLife Helps Me to Live an Active Life

AIM Royal Emerald Director Susan Henriques has a long history with The AIM Companies™. An introduction to AIM back in 1992 turned her health around after being devastatingly ill for five years.

In the 1980s, Susan had been a very active woman, power walking 40 to 50 miles weekly. Then in the fall of 1987, she came down with what she thought was the flu. Feeling exhausted and with a fever and swollen lymph glands, Susan went to her doctor, but her situation only got worse.

“My muscles and joints began to hurt,” Susan recollected. “I became more and more tired.” As the weeks went by, she found it difficult to think clearly or put sentences together. And she began to experience short-term memory loss.

Susan visited 11 doctors and three hospitals over an 18-month period until finally being diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Essentially, Susan’s life as she knew it came to a halt, especially affecting the relationships with her husband, daughter and son. “I had long periods when I could not get out of bed,” Susan stated. “This went on for a few years.” It forced her to all but ignore her family.

For four painful years, Susan underwent regular testing and tried to find relief by taking antibiotics and antidepressants. But nothing helped until she and her husband attended a marriage ministry class, where the leader recommended that Susan try something: AIM’s barley grass powder.

After three months of taking one teaspoon a day, Susan felt some strength in her legs. And the results of her blood work were much improved. Seven months later, the pain began to go away, allowing her to skip the next doctor’s appointment and go on a vacation with her husband instead. Susan was finally able to enjoy a full and healthy life again.

Jumping ahead many years to early 2018, Susan contacted AIM to say how happy she was that BarleyLife has been certified gluten-free because she had been diagnosed with celiac disease in 2010. “I have taken as much as six tablespoons in a day and had no reaction,” Susan wrote. “It is such a comfort to me to know I can take it again. It’s been a blessing.”

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.

Travel Plans? Stay Healthy!

In North America, summer is on the way. It’s a typical time of year to take a vacation. What’s more, leisure time that involves traveling to familiar, new or exotic places is usually something that most people daydream about and look forward to regardless of the season. It’s all about getting away from it all.

Some people set out on vacation with a drugstore supply of medications just in case they get sick along with any medical prescriptions. Others may have to scramble for medicine if the symptoms of common travel ailments stop them in their tracks. And some cast their fate to the wind and just go. AIM people pack prevention in the form of “Nutrition that Works” to protect their health before, during and after their travels.

Packing AIM Prevention

For any journey, getting there and back in good shape is desired by all who travel. But it doesn’t always work out that way right from day one. For example, if you’re taking public transportation, basically you’re encapsulated with strangers inside your choice of vehicle. Traveling by plane raises the risk of illnesses such as colds or the flu possibly by sharing recirculated air or touching in-flight magazines, contaminated trays and armrests, lavatory door handles, etc. And this can get your journey off to a sick start.

You have a choice to help prevent becoming sick by taking antioxidant-rich Proancynol 2000 or trying to find cold or flu medicine after getting sick. Members know that increasing levels of antioxidants with Proancynol considerably reduces the risk of illnesses, whether on the ground or up in the air somewhere.

Bring along the healthy gut bacteria in FloraFood to prevent ailments such as traveler’s diarrhea or other stomach bugs or you may have to scramble to find medications to counteract the bad bacteria in your gut after ingesting contaminated food or water. Members are aware that maintaining the population of good bacteria in the gut with FloraFood helps to prevent stomach problems especially while traveling.

And you simply can’t go wrong by packing BarleyLife in lightweight Sample Packs to supplement your nutritional intake with the jam-packed nutrients in barley grass.
If travel is in your plans, pack prevention by packing AIM nutrition.

In the summer of 2017, I packed AIM products for my trip to China, where I competed in the roller games for Team Canada. With all of the traveling, stress and different foods, many of the other participants got sick. Taking supplements such as BarleyLife, FloraFood and Proancynol 2000 kept me healthy.
