Healthiest Version of Yourself

Best-Version-of-Self

Shared by Heather Fausett, AIM Director in Auckland, New Zealand 

Twenty years ago, at the age of thirty-two, Heather Fausett was diagnosed with a rare form of thyroid cancer, with a very poor prognosis. She had the tumor removed, and six weeks post-op, her health had made a miraculous turnaround.

Before her diagnosis, Heather lived a life almost devoid of fresh fruit and vegetables and high in meat and dairy products. She and her husband, Grant, quickly understood the necessary health changes they needed to make, and they increased their raw food intake to ninety percent.

They started taking AIM’s BarleyLife, mostly for the super­oxide dis­mutase (SOD) and anti­oxidant content and within a week started to feel like teenagers.

Heather joined AIM to pur­chase BarleyLife at wholesale prices. She discovered that using the AIM products was a cost-effective and convenient way to consume whole foods and to juice without the mess and difficulty of accessing organic vegetables, to say nothing of saving time!

The Fausetts met Chairman’s Club Directors Mary-Ann and Mark Shearer at the Hawaiian Celebration in 2002, and since then, Heather’s mantra is to help others improve the quality of their lives through good nutrition.

Periodically, Heather runs Healthy Living seminars in her local community. Her aim is to get folks educated, energized and enthusiastic about becoming the very best version of themselves. Her philosophy is that this can be fun and easy, if we learn a few basic concepts because the body is very forgiving and corrects itself, if we look after it properly!

Heather and Grant enjoyed a three-day hike on the Hollyford Track in the South Island of New Zealand in December. Heather and Grant’s three daughters, Kate, Christina and Rochelle (with spouses), are pictured above post-jog after their Christmas Day lunch. They were raised on AIM’s BarleyLife since they were in pre-school. All three are in their twenties and are keen athletes and users of the AIM products.

What’s at the Source of Your Pain?

Physical pain can occur anywhere in your body. It may be the result of an injury, such as banging your knee or toe, straining your back to lift something, or tripping and falling. The resulting pain is the inflammatory response of your body to heal the damage. Even when the source is not so obvious it is usually inflammation that generates the pain you feel.

Inflammation signals that the body is trying to heal itself from external or internal injury by removing or neutralizing harmful materials, including bacteria, damaged cells, free radicals and viruses. However, long-term inflammation is not a healing thing; it is the root cause of most health problems, such as Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, heart disease and many types of cancer. Lifestyle—lack of exercise, exposure to environmental toxins, stress, etc.—contributes to chronic inflammation. Poor dietary choices play a huge role in internal inflammation that, over time, manifests itself as illness.

It is so easy to reach for a drug in response to pain for immediate relief without healing at the source of the problem. However, the most common over-the-counter and prescription drugs can have side effects and increase the risk of various conditions: perforated ulcers, gastrointestinal bleeding, acute liver failure or even heart attack1. It is an individual choice, and one that should not be taken lightly.

Fortunately, there are natural options available. Choosing the whole food in AIM BarleyLife® to internally bathe your body with anti-inflammatory greens is just one of the natural alternatives. How much you take depends on the severity of your condition, so you can take more than one spoonful. BarleyLife is concentrated, whole food, so instead of synthetic chemicals, it gives your body naturally balanced vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, and chlorophyll—the green cleanser and healer.

If you have painful joints, supplement with the pain-relieving ingredients in AIM Frame Essentials: glucosamine, boswellia resin, and methyl-sulfonyl-methane (MSM).

Getting to the source of your pain by using natural nutrients is the healthiest way to help your natural body to heal itself. Supplementing with AIM products is one of the best lifestyle choices a person can make. Ultimately, you determine the destiny of your health.

Tips for AIM Business Builders

Approaching Small Businesses

AIM business builders can sell to privately owned retail establishments. New open doors are all around you, such as gyms, health food stores, nail salons, and spas. It is important to know how to approach these small businesses.

Be prepared! It works as a scout motto, and it will work for your AIM business. More to the point, being prepared makes everything easier.

Here are some initial steps to prepare you for success:

Create a List of Retailers and Set Your Target

  • Go through your personal contacts.
  • Search the Yellow Pages or go online to find businesses around you.
  • List independent retailers, not chain stores or mass retailers (like the big box stores).

Develop a Sales Pitch Plan

  • Develop a pitch that can fit into a single sentence.
  • Begin with a story that makes the prospective client want to hear more.
  • Get a feel for your audience.
  • Know their needs and focus on specific AIM products that serve their needs (e.g., Sports Pack for a gym, Mag-nificence for a spa, natural health products for a health food store, etc).

Show Them the Money

  • Retailers need to make a profit.
  • Let them know all of the profitable options:
    • Most suggested retail prices are approximately
      30% higher than the AIM wholesale price
    • Volume discounts (5 – 10%)
    • AMR discounts (5 – 10%)
    • 6-pack savings
    • AIM Member Income Plan

IBS Basics

Chronic bowel disorders can make life miserable for people who have them, affecting the absorption and digestion of food by the body and causing symptoms that include constipation and diarrhea. Conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are forms of inflammatory bowel disease.

And then there is irritable bowel syndrome, commonly referred to as IBS. This disorder affects between 25 and 45 million people in the United States and 5 million in Canada, which has one of the highest rates of IBS in the world.

Affecting the colon (large intestine), IBS is deemed a chronic condition that can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms; e.g., abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, cramping, diarrhea and flatulence.

What Causes IBS?

Like so many ailments, the exact cause of IBS is not certain. However, a number of factors can play a role, including bacterial overgrowth, food triggers and stress as well as hormones. Women have double the incidences of IBS compared to men, and research indicates that estrogen and progesterone fluctuations during the menstrual cycle may increase flare-ups.

Whichever factor is involved, IBS negatively affects the normal muscular contractions of the intestinal walls, which move food through the digestive tract until it is eliminated.

With IBS, the contractions can be more intense and for a longer duration, leading to bloating, diarrhea and gas. This type is known as IBS-D (for diarrhea). Or the contractions can be weak, which slows down the passage of food waste and creates dry, hard stools: IBS-C (for constipation). Some sufferers have both symptoms: IBS-M (for mixed).

Reducing IBS Symptoms

For the most part, reducing IBS symptoms can be accomplished through stress management and changes in lifestyle and diet. For example, some common food triggers are broccoli, cabbage, chocolate, fats, milk and alcohol, so any symptom activators should be avoided.

Increased physical activity seems to help most people with IBS, so even walking more can be a positive lifestyle change.

Since stress worsens IBS symptoms, managing stress levels by breathing calmly, getting sufficient sleep, or through meditation, hypnosis, etc., helps to reduce their intensity.

Supplemental Help for IBS

Fiber supplements that contain in­gredients such as psyllium can alleviate constipation when taken with lots of water. And they may create less bloating than fiber-rich foods. The best method to supplementing with Herbal Fiberblend (or fit ’n fiber) for IBS is to start out with small amounts and gradually increase intake over time. Too much too soon can overwhelm the digestive tract of an IBS sufferer.

Additionally, Herbal Fiberblend’s soluble and insoluble fiber and cleansing herbs act as a soothing balm on intestinal walls, and these botani­cals may contri­bute to a return of normal muscular contractions that lead to healthy digestion and elimi­nation.

Repopulating healthy bacteria in the colon with FloraFood can contribute to balanced intestinal flora, which may alleviate symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain and irregular bowel movements.

The easily assimilated nutrients in BarleyLife may help to counteract the food absorption issues associated with many bowel disorders, providing a natural source of vitamins and minerals along with a wealth of plant nutrients that support whole-body health.

Note: Herbal Fiberblend, fit ‘n fiber, FloraFood and BarleyLife are products from The AIM Companies, a wholefood juice concentrate and nutritional supplement company with a network marketing opportunity . Established in 1982.

The Missing Link to Good Health

Over the centuries, there has been much debate over the value of dietary fiber. In fact, before the 1970s, it was called crude fiber because it was thought to be unimportant for good health. Since then, fiber has been proven to be an essential part of a healthy diet, but most people don’t get enough.

Not getting enough fiber means you are not cleaning your insides. Without it, waste becomes impacted along the intestinal walls, which can result in any number of health issues.

Along with cleansing and helping to keep your hunger and blood sugar under control, fiber also helps to regulate how your body uses sugar.

As an everyday fiber supplement, fit ’n fiber makes it easy to top up on this essential carbohydrate that your body won’t gain calories from and doesn’t digest. So stay unclogged, sugar-balanced and satiated with help from fit ’n fiber.

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?
