Fit is the New Thin: Mélanie’s Story

It is important to note that maintaining an ideal weight for your body composition goes well beyond being skinny or thin. It’s about being fit. It’s the new thin in wellness.

Over the years, many Members (The AIM Companies’ distributors) have managed their weight by using a variety of AIM products, including BarleyLife, ProPeas, fit ’n fiber and GlucoChrom. A selection of recent testimonials comprise the “Fit Is the New Thin” series, beginning with a personal success story from Mélanie Villeneuve, an AIM Group Builder who lives in  Quebec with her husband and their two daughters.

Weight Loss Made Easy

As a working mom with two young girls, I need a lot of energy. But I had been experiencing health issues: stomach problems and mostly feeling tired all the time. I had poor nutritional habits and was overweight. I wanted to take charge of my health.

In September 2017, I started using AIM products, learning about their benefits for my family from AIM Director Sylvie Adam. I began by taking BarleyLife Xtra every morning for a month because I wanted to try one product first on myself and see if I felt any different.

After only four days, I noticed an increase in my energy levels, better digestion and reduced bloating. And at the end of that first month, I had lost 8 pounds.
Since then, I’ve been eating healthy, alkaline, raw food along with taking additional AIM products: the Garden Trio, which my girls love, ProPeas, fit ’n fiber and GlucoChrom. When I weighed myself four months into this lifestyle change, I had lost 30 pounds … and I’m keeping it off!

I couldn’t keep this a secret just for myself, so I’m promoting this healthy lifestyle and building an AIM business in the process. I began by telling family and friends about AIM nutrition. Some people didn’t recognize me after my weight loss. I look healthier, happier and fitter.

AIM makes it easy to introduce good nutrition to your routine, and you can start by changing one thing at a time. I know that I am now at my best to take care of my family. I’m full of energy, so I can do whatever I want. And I’m also ready to help people who want better health.

No Longer Suffers with Hay Fever

Shared by Angela Lu, AIM Director

Initially, when I came to America, I suffered from serious hay fever every spring. My friend who lived far away in Texas would send me canisters of BarleyLife powder, instructing me to take it on an empty stomach every morning to improve my health so that I would be no longer troubled by this allergy. I tried it for several months and it worked.

Little by little, I also noticed that my skin and hair quality improved. Even when I had knife cuts or oil burns from working at my restaurant, BarleyLife helped me to heal quickly, and I never needed to worry that these injuries might get infected.

For almost 30 years, BarleyLife has been my only supplement. One of its main benefits is to strengthen our body cells, and it makes me strong to be able to do the physically demanding work required at the restaurant. My health is even better than when I was young.

Picture Perfect and Happily Healthy with Help from AIM Nutrition

Shared by George McPherson, Chairman’s Club Director

Over the years, I have dealt with a number of health problems, some far more serious than others. To this day, the AIM products have played a major role in keeping me healthy.

When Herbal Fiberblend first became available in 1988, I was dealing with painfully aggravating hemorrhoids, to the point where I had to have one of them removed. Thanks to Herbal Fiberblend, those uncomfortable issues are history.

In 2002, I was diagnosed with a deadly disease: prostate cancer. An appointment was scheduled for me to have surgery at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. At that time, the immediate medical response was to remove the prostate if the PSA appeared to be elevating.

We decided to monitor and wait, and, in the meantime, we got connected to a naturopathic doctor who felt we were on the right track to try alternatives. I started on a series of chelation therapy and homeopathic medicines along with large amounts of the AIM products … and no surgery!

Nine years later, however, I had a blockage in my bowel and had immediate surgery to remove a tumor. The surgeon sent samples of this growth to test for cancer.

A few days later, the surgeon told us that the tumor was cancerous and recommended chemotherapy. He referred me to an oncologist, who said his reports showed I was nearing stage-4 prostate cancer and suggested I be a candidate for a new trial of experimental chemo.

That’s when my wife, Muriel, stepped in and stalled for time from any further “medical” moves. Again, my naturopathic doctor treated me naturally and complimented us for taking the AIM products.

I passed the 80-year mark in March of 2018 and still enjoy good health. I continue to take the Garden Trio, AIMega, Frame Essentials, PrepZymes, fit ’n fiber mixed with Herbal Fiberblend, which tastes good, along with a few others.

Now the route that we took to deal with prostate cancer the past 16 years may not be the answer for everybody, but it sure has worked for me.

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.

Getting a Nutritional Education

Late August or early September is the time associated with going back to school. Education time. Beyond what is learned from kindergarten through col­lege, parents have the ability to educate their children with an important, long-life lesson: the value of wholesome nutrition. It’s significant because there’s a media marketplace—TV, the internet, smart phones—that sells young people a poor-nutrition road to bad health: fast foods, soft drinks, processed snacks, to name just a few.

Unwholesome Advertising

It’s still an eye-opener to look back at the early days of advertising, when doctors promoted one cigarette brand over another. Have we really come that far since then? Possibly not, when you consider the marketing of so-called food and beverages that study after study show the likelihood for promoting the onset of diseases, such as obesity and diabetes1 as well as cancer2.

Such advertising is still legal and very profitable . . . just not ethical if a company truly cares about the long-term health of consumers and their children. In 2013, Fast Food Facts reported that children and teens remained key audiences by the fast food industry, which spent $4.6 billion to advertise mostly unhealthy products3. Even under all of the marketing pressure, parents can step in and make a difference.

Taste Training

Getting your kids to eat well is a worthwhile task. As a parent, you have the power of providing nutrition, so make choices that create good food habits. For example, introducing a variety of vegetables to young children and “marketing” them in a fun way can shape their taste for healthy foods4.

Introducing AIM nutrition to your children gives them a supplemental advantage for a long, healthy life­time. Kids who crave a glass of BarleyLife or Co­Coa LeafGreens instead of a bag of po­tato chips nurture their physical and mental well-being.

Chairman’s Club Director Sandy Combs has been such an educator since becoming an AIM Member in 1985. Sandy and her husband, Wayne, have six children, 21 grandkids and “a bunch of great-grandkids.” AIM nutrition has been a big part of their lives and the lives touched by Sandy’s help.

“Moms put BarleyLife into baby bottles to help children stay sat­isfied longer,” Sandy explained. “As my grandkids grew, AIM products entered into the school sports scene, fueling winning positions in baseball, softball, football and cheerleading. Championship com­petitions were joined with AIM’s champion products.”

Giving children a nutritional education helps them to graduate with a high degree of good health in life.

Dreaming with Faith Bring Success

Shared by Hilton and Edna Smith, AIM Chairman’s Club Directors

It’s been our joy and privilege to be part of the AIM family since November 1987. We could never begin to count all the ways in which our AIM business keeps blessing us.
Our success formula is based on FAITH: faith in God and that with Him all things are possible, faith in AIM and AIM products and faith in ourselves.

F ~ reminded us to focus on AIM. AIM has been our passion for over 30 years. It’s so exciting when people thank us for helping them improve their quality of life.

A ~ acting upon our “written” goals always kept us on track. I think the biggest mistake that people make with a network marketing business is that they fail to treat it as a business. The only place that success comes before work is in the dictionary. I always enjoy going to work in my home office and choosing my own hours.

I ~ imagine success. I would get so excited hearing all the testimonials every time we had a home meeting, that afterward, when I jumped into bed, I would say, “Look out Chairman’s Club … here we come!” And now we are still excited to hear the good reports as we receive the honor of being inducted into the Two Million Dollar Club.

T ~ stands for teach and train others. The training that we provided for others through our home meetings, teleclasses, phone calls, literature, etc., always motivated us as well. It was work, but it was fun.

H ~ help everyone you can. Network marketing is a numbers game, so the more people you help, the more successful you become.

I am so thankful that God gave me a loving and supportive husband who did a lot of behind-the-scenes work, always helping me with meetings, health shows, preparing meals and gardening and encouraging me and our Members. Together, we thank our AIM owners for providing us with this amazing opportunity. We also thank our caring team of distributors, many who have become cherished friends.

Most importantly, we thank our Heavenly Father for directing our steps to The AIM Companies™. We can’t help but marvel at how our lives have changed, and, more importantly, how many lives have been changed since we joined AIM. Becoming a part of the AIM family was certainly the best decision we ever made. Dreams do come true when you dream with faith.

Race Walking with Red Rush

By Anel Oosthuizen, AIM-Sponsored Athlete in George, WC, South Africa

Life is not measured by the amounts of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away. This has been my motto since I was a little girl in an oversized red T-shirt.

I was born and raised in a small town called George, located in the Western Cape of South Africa. When I began primary school, I used to compete in everything athletic just because I loved sports so much. I even tried shot put, but let’s just say that it just wasn’t meant to be.

My journey as an athlete really began when I was only seven years old, doing short distances. When I was nine, I started doing the middle distances, up to 1200m. I have always enjoyed doing the endurance events more than any other discipline.
I started race walking when I was 10 years old. So much has happened ever since, winning five gold medals at the National School Championships, attaining six South African Senior titles and breaking seven SA records. I’ve been able to travel to 14 countries and compete in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Throughout my ed­u­cation and sporting career, I have had an amazing support system. My parents have stood by my side, motivating and supporting me ever since I can remember. I realize every day how privileged I am to have been able to receive this kind of support my entire life. I am now a full-time teacher and athlete, enjoying every bit of juggling this thing called life.

In February 2018, I began using Red Rush beet juice concentrate. As an
endurance athlete, I have to always be ready for competitions. After a month of using Red Rush, I felt more energized and noticed that my recovery time really improved after long, hard training sessions.

The fact that Red Rush is a natural product is a huge bonus. I can truly recommend it to any athlete. Besides, Red Rush is so concentrated, it conveniently fits into small bottles that don’t take up much space in a gym bag.

I give huge thanks to AIM and Red Rush for making my life easier with fast recovery and great nutrition.
