Dixie Shaw: Mom Knows Best!

Dixie Shaw

Dixie Shaw, Royal Emerald Director from Gilmer, Texas, knows nutrition. She and her husband Eddie own and operate an online health store where they sell the AIM products alongside other equipment essential to a healthy lifestyle. She discovered AIM shortly after giving birth to one of their children. “I wanted to lose weight and get in shape,” Dixie said. A friend told her to try AIM Herbal Fiberblend. After using it for a few months, she signed up as a Member.

“I use AIM BarleyLife often, but Herbal Fiberblend is probably my favorite product. I take it almost every day. We use a lot of the other AIM products: Cell Wellness Restorer, CalciAIM, AIMega, Composure and CellSparc 360. Our new favorite product is AIM Red Rush. We rotate in a lot of the other products when we need them.”

Dixie also knows motherhood. She’s had five children and home-schooled them all. Reading, writing and arithmetic weren’t the only things that she instilled in her kids. She also taught them the value of eating right and healthy living.

“We took BarleyLife nearly every day. We ate healthy and cooked everything from scratch. We ground our own grains and almost never ate out. I taught them everything that I could about nutrition. They’d listen to me talking to clients on the phone. I showed them how to read food labels at the supermarket. If one of them brought home something like a cake mix full of artificial ingredients, I didn’t like that too well. I’d say ‘We don’t do that here.’ We tried to make everything from scratch. Then you know what goes into your food. Our youngest child just graduated chef school and became a chef.”

Today, Dixie and Eddie’s children are all grown. The oldest is thirty-three and the youngest—a fan of dry BarleyLife while growing up—is twenty-one years old, each one of them married. They all remember AIM conferences fondly. The first conference they attended as a family was in Phoenix, and the whole clan even journeyed all the way to Hawaii. The Utah conference was the final AIM-related trip the Shaws made together.

“My kids were almost never sick. Little kids are sick all the time, but ours just weren’t. We hardly have anyone sick in our family. That’s probably our greatest AIM success story. After using the products for twenty years, we are still healthy. We look about ten years younger than our actual ages. That’s something I’ve noticed about a lot of AIM Members. I think it’s the anti-aging effects of the products. I love that.”

Elderly Bedridden Patient Revitalized with Mag-nificence

IMG_8943

As a pain physician in Taiwan, I have seen lots of patients who have suffered from wide varieties of acute and chronic pain. After years of visiting many specialists and trying all kinds of painkillers or other methods, some patients are still deeply devastated by their discomfort, and ultimately become seriously depressed because their pain has affected their physical strength, movement, mood, sleep and even their social life. But the painkillers they are given do not ease their pain to any satisfactory level, and what’s worse, many pain medications, including a few major brand-name prescription drugs, have serious side effects, some of which may even be life threatening.

I was lucky enough to attend a speech on “Nutritional Healing and Health” by Dr. Yu-Shiaw Chen in Tainan, Taiwan in early 2015. When I asked her opinions about the treatment of pain, she introduced the AIM Mag-nificence lotion to me. I knew almost instantly that it would be effective since I have read about the pain-relieving effects of magnesium. But at that time, I wondered what a lotion could do for my patients who have intractable chronic pain.

A week later, I gave it to one of my patients, an 88-year-old lady who had been bedridden with severe lower back pain because of lumbar spine degeneration and senile osteoporosis. Because of her advanced age and a heart problem, surgery was not an option for her. For several years, I had been trying hard to alleviate her suffering with many medications and some invasive procedures, but all the drugs combined and the procedures failed to work well on her and caused annoying side effects such as stomach discomfort, nausea, vomiting and constipation. I told her to give the AIM Mag-nificence™ lotion a try as a last resort.

To my great amazement, when she visited me four weeks later, she walked slowly into my office with a quad cane instead of sitting on a wheelchair like before. She could barely control her excitement when she told me about what had happened to her. She said that she had rubbed the lotion on her back every day, and at first it did not feel good because it was too sticky on the skin. But after a week, she began to feel the decrease in the intensity of her pain. So she kept on using the lotion on her back and her feet as well. Her pain virtually decreased day by day, and she began to sit for long hours and walk short distances in the house which had been impossible for years. Eventually, like a miracle, the pain that had tortured her for so many years almost disappeared after four weeks. She and her family were so happy because she was able to move around on her own and could partially take care of herself with some daily activities. They were also happy she could gradually get rid of the drugs.

I would like to thank Dr. Yu-Shiaw Chen, AIM Chairman’s Club Director, for introducing this wonderful product to me and my patients. It really changed my patient’s life. So I would like to recommend it to all of you who have pain problems.

Red Rush Athlete James Olmos: It’s All About Family

James Olmos

It is no small surprise that the first obstacle course race that AIM Member and Red Rush Athlete James Olmos ever participated in was with his family. Together they braved a mud run called the Rugged Maniac. Unprepared for what lay ahead, James, his wife and their three sons scaled eight-foot walls and slid down muck-covered slopes while wearing improper shoes and cotton clothing, just having fun and taking snapshots the whole time. Although James still runs races with his wife and children when possible, he has become a lot more competitive. At forty-seven, he finished his first half-marathon in less than two hours and is considering the possibilities of running full marathons and even a 50k.

Although relatively new to AIM, James has long been an advocate of good health and fitness. He instilled those values in his children. “Parents need the balance of exercise, not only to be an encouragement and an example to their children, but exercise relieves stress and gives you the energy needed to raise children. It’s fine to bake cookies with your kids, but going for a walk afterwards teaches them the balance between enjoying treats while maintaining good health,” James said.

All his sons grew up physically active. His oldest son was on the high school track team and was honored as a scholar athlete. His two youngest boys both followed in their mother’s footsteps—a professional ballerina and modern dancer—and joined their high school dance production teams as well as participating in other sports like lacrosse and soccer. Although his boys have grown, they are still conscious of what they eat and are active. James is very proud of them all.

James was first introduced to the AIM products by AIM Director Sean Henry. “I read his Facebook and blog posts on Red Rush®, and being the curious person that I am, I approached him with questions regarding this magical elixir. Unbeknown to me, he had been reading my  Facebook and blog posts about Spartan Race training and events. We ended up having lunch and laughed over the fact that we were both interested in discovering how Red Rush could support my training and race goals.”

James has always been interested in nutrition. He hasn’t eaten pork or beef in twenty years although he regularly enjoys fish and fowl. Each morning, he wakes up and drinks a full glass of filtered water with two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and AIM RediBeets®. Then he makes a shake that includes ProPeas®, CoCoa LeafGreens®, coconut oil, flaxseed oil, cinnamon, peanut butter, a choice of fruit and almond milk.

“Most athletes are in tune with their bodies. They’re mentally, physically and spiritually aware of changes in their bodies. They’re aware of how slightly tweaking any aspect of their diet, movement or thought can positively or negatively affect their performances. I noticed the positive effects of Red Rush from day one.”

“I noticed the benefits again this year while running the San Diego Half-Marathon. I hit this hill at mile ten, a ‘hill’ that everyone nervously spoke of before the race. Well, I powered up the hill, passing many runners as I made way over the crest. And I felt great at the top!”

BarleyLife Keeps You Strong and Healthy

BarleyLife Pics

Ever since The AIM Companies™ introduced the juice powder of barley grass back in 1982, the world as we know it was given the gift of health. Those who have made AIM BarleyLife® a daily part of their nutritional intake know it keeps them strong and healthy. For everyone else, it’s time to get on board the BarleyLife health insurance plan.

The key to BarleyLife’s effectiveness is that it is first and foremost organic in nature, just like people. We are not synthesized in laboratories like so many synthetic supplements, including vitamins, minerals, etc. People are natural and respond exceedingly well to the rich, natural source of nutrients in BarleyLife: vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, antioxidants, phytonutrients and enzymes.

It’s a fact: cattle that graze on grass grow strong and healthy. But people can’t chew on blades of grass and expect the same results. That’s why AIM extracts all of the nutritional wealth from barley grass to make it bioavailable for people in a juice powder. These incredible greens are easily absorbed, providing an unparalleled concentration of natural nutrients for the body to build healthy cells—the foundation of strength and health.

For those who still cannot wrap their minds around drinking grass in a glass, BarleyLife comes in capsules as well. That means there is no excuse for not taking BarleyLife to keep you strong and healthy.

Almost Ninety Percent of Americans Aren’t Eating Their Veggies

Lere 17

According to the Centers for Disease Control and NBC News, eighty-seven percent of Americans don’t get their recommended daily allowance of vegetables, and seventy-five percent don’t get enough fruit.  It is recommended that adults eat two or three servings of vegetables per day and one to two cups of fruit; however, many Americans consume less than a cup of fruit and less than two cups of vegetables each day.

The health benefits of vegetables are well documented.  People who eat the recommended five servings of fruits and veggies lower their risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes as well as many other illnesses according to numerous studies. A 2014 paper published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health found that people who ate seven or more servings of vegetables were 42% less likely to die from any cause than those who ate only one serving.  So why aren’t people eating their vegetables regularly?

From NBC:

“People perceive vegetables as being difficult to manage,” she said. “Start with expensive. There’s a lot of waste. They have to be peeled. They have to be washed. They have to be cut. They aren’t as filling as junkier foods. The barriers are real.” –Marion Nestle, Nutrition Professor NYU

The AIM Companies offers wholefood nutrition in the form of vegetable juice concentrates like BarleyLife, RediBeets and Just Carrots to name a few. These concentrates contain almost all the benefits of raw vegetables without the waste, the cleaning, the cutting, the peeling or the hassle. They also have a longer shelf life. The per-serving cost of AIM products makes them more affordable than regular vegetables, and by combining any of our vegetables juices with ProPeas pea protein (another vegetable product), they’re just as filling if not more so than those junkier foods.  AIM products also contain very few calories, and can help improve your daily nutrient portfolio without having to significantly increase your calorie load.

Vegetables don’t have to be difficult to manage. The AIM Companies makes it easy!

Chris van Rensburg: My AIM Journey

Chris van Rensburg

First of all, I would like to thank all our AIM Partners for Life for their ongoing love, care and prayers since I was involved in an air crash on December 1, 2014. I have been so overwhelmed and humbled by the Members who have joined hands with me from around the world and who are faithfully supporting me during this trying time. I have lost my left eye, and we are still praying that I regain some sight in my right eye. I can now start to see light, shapes and can identify the colors red and green.

I find this significant as the two AIM products that are playing a role in the healing process are AIM BARLEYLIFE, the lifeblood of the plant, and AIM RED RUSH which supports oxygen and nourishment to our own human blood. Red is the color of blood, associated with energy and life. Red Rush has been one of AIM’s supplements that we haven’t been able to do without. The color green signifies growth and also represents life. It is the dominant color in nature and is very restful. BarleyLife will always be the most important supplement we take, and this, coupled with nearly
every other AIM product, has played an important part in the healing process that I am going through.

Change is inevitable and tragedy can strike at any time in our lives. Constant change takes place in our personal lives, in our surroundings, in our families and also in our businesses daily. However, what does not change is the way we CHOOSE to address change. And we CHOOSE LIFE – each day brings new LIFE, new opportunities, new dreams, new vision, new goals, new friends and a NEW BEGINNING.

Our journey with AIM started nineteen years ago when Joan had adrenal exhaustion. She brought home a jar of green barley grass because our family was plagued with ill health. We immediately saw an improvement in all of our lives and we have never looked back! As I supported Joan in her passion for improving the lives of others, we saw our AIM business grow. We were not even knowledgeable about the business plan. We grew to love all the products in AIM’s range, traveled to fifteen AIM Conferences and grew our network internationally.

CHRISTOPHER AND NICOLAS
Our boys Christopher and Nicolas traveled with us, and what a privilege we have been afforded to see the world together as a family! Today I am so proud of them, and I am honored to have two adult sons who have stood by me twenty-four hours a day, helping Joan nurse me back to health. They have stood in the gap for me, being my “eyes,” staying by my side as we walk this difficult road together. BarleyLife is the most important supplement we will ever take, and Joan diligently mixed our BarleyLife for us first thing in the morning from day one. Today, although they have both left home, they never start a day without their BarleyLife!

AIM SUPPLEMENTS
I often think of the scripture: “Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old, they will not depart from it.” I am grateful that today we are a healthy family with strong immune systems. This has stood me in good stead as I honestly believe that because I take practically the WHOLE RANGE OF AIM PRODUCTS; my body was strong and healthy when I had the accident. That meant that I have been able to go through the shock, stress and ongoing trauma without any complications, side effects or infections. Joan has increased my dosages, and although I can’t ‘see’ what she gives me three times a day, I know that together with God’s Grace, the products and the AIM Companies play a crucial role in my ongoing recovery.

As I reflect back on my AIM journey over the past 18 years, we saw many changes taking place within the company. However, standing tall amidst all the changes, is a Company of thirty-three years – still solid and firm, with the same mission statement, with the same heart of serving the individual, with the same purpose of reaching people around the world with the same high standard of quality products and with the same excellent compensation plan.

My purpose in 2015 is to be able to continue with my work and keep trusting that I will regain sight in my right eye. I would like to see myself independent again as it is so difficult having to depend on my family for absolutely everything. I cannot thank them enough for the way they have been there unconditionally to serve me every step of the way. My wife Joan also has a new vision to put together training, leadership and business materials and raise up new leaders and promote AIM’s mission statement which provides us with access to the highest principles of free enterprise.

I believe in the power and concept of network marketing and would like to support Joan in focusing on growth in 2015. Each Member is actually a business owner and we would like to support others who are interested in pursuing this avenue. We are so grateful that we have a strong, secure AIM business because this has helped support us since December 1 when Joan had to stop working and nurse me around the clock. That is the advantage of a residual income! May AIM grow from strength to strength, as we forge forward, our mission being “Passion with Purpose” and unleash potential which we haven’t yet tapped into, fulfilling the Purpose to which God has called us in 2015.
