BarleyLife for Pets

Shared by Mary Brubaker, Preferred Member

Have you ever considered that BarleyLife might be helpful for your four-legged friends? Neither did I until we had this predicament with our four-month-old golden retriever, Lily.

Lily

Upon letting her out of the barn one morning, I was surprised to see her face all swollen up. Whatever could have happened?

I immediately thought that it could be allergies and called the vet to confirm my suspicion. He agreed, suggesting it could be from a spider bite or something she may have eaten. Being a puppy, she chewed on anything that interested her, so who knows what could be this allergy culprit?

The vet recommended giving her Benadryl before it got worse. Unfortunately, I had no such thing in my medical supplies, but I did have an idea I thought might work.

You see, I have this favorite product called BarleyLife Xtra that I use everyday, so why not share some with Lily? I think I read somewhere that BarleyLife can help with allergies.

I mixed a few teaspoons of the greens with some milk and set it in front of her, eager to see what she would do. Lily sniffed it, lapped it a bit and then turned her sad-looking eyes the other way.

“Come on,” I coaxed her, and she lapped it up until she’d all but cleaned the dish.
I thought “Let’s see if that helps.” I monitored her and within an hour, I believe the greens started working. The swelling had already gone down by half.

As the day went on, the swelling slowly vanished, so there was no need to give Lily the Benadryl that my husband brought home after work.

Our eight-week-old Shiba Inu puppies love this green drink, too. Our three-year-old son loves BarleyLife Xtra, and I found him sharing it with the puppies. They nearly went crazy for it.

Though we don’t feed it to our pets on a regular basis, I know I have something to try should they need it.

As for our family, we take even more AIM products daily, especially Herbal Fiberblend. We no longer have constipation problems like we used to and enjoy a happier, healthier lifestyle. And we thank God for leading us to these products.

To Sneeze or Not to Sneeze

Why is it that some people have allergies while others waltz through life without them? Apparently, life isn’t fair when it comes to allergic reactions either.

Ask anyone who suffers from seasonal allergies about the unfairness of making it through a long winter only to sneeze their way through spring and summer and they’ll tell you in no uncertain terms just how irritatingly unfair it is to have allergies.

Wheat Trigger?

With seasonal allergic rhinitis, a person reacts primarily to the pollen released from grasses, plants and trees, all of which spring to life after winter. Certain foods may also play a role in triggering allergic reactions to pollen.

For example, wheat has been a dietary staple for centuries in bread and is an ingredient in most processed foods. Over time, people can develop inner reactions related to a family of wheat proteins, amylase-trypsin inhibitors (ATIs), which, according to a 2016 study, promote intestinal inflammation.1

This inflammation associated with wheat could be an allergy activator come spring. Anecdotal evidence demonstrates that eliminating dietary wheat has helped to put a stop to seasonal allergies that trigger itchy eyes, runny noses and uncontrolled sneezing.

Alleviate with AIM

The nutrition you add to your dietary intake can also help to alleviate allergy symptoms. LeafGreens and CoCoa LeafGreens contain kale, arugula, Swiss chard and spinach, all of which are natural sources of quercetin. This plant flavonoid is recognized for its antioxidant activity and anti-allergic properties.

Quercetin naturally inhibits the release of histamines.2 For most people, pollen is harmless. But for those who suffer from seasonal allergies, the immune system identifies pollen as something harmful to the body, so it releases chemicals—histamines—to get rid of it, creating inflammation and allergy symptoms.

Increasing your intake of quercetin-rich vegetables and AIM concentrates such as LeafGreens and CoCoa LeafGreens may help to correct this inflammatory response to a perceived threat.

FloraFood may also provide relief. With the recent focus on the microbiota’s importance to overall health, it may not be surprising that a 2016 randomized trial concluded that allergy sufferers who took probiotics experienced improved quality of life.3

The probiotics used in the study were Lactobacillus gasseri, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium longum, which make up the FloraFood formula. These friendly bacteria may increase the percentage of T cells called Tregs that control the immune system’s response to foreign particles and generate a tolerance for pollen.

If seasonal allergies affect you or someone you know, it is good to know that there are non-medicinal steps that can be taken to help alleviate this unnatural body response to something as common as pollen, allowing full enjoyment of a spring that has sprung.

CoCoa LeafGreens for Allergies

Shared by Rose Stoltzfus, AIM Director

In January 2015, our 11-year-old daughter, Laura, became really sick. We took her to the doctor, who said she had bronchitis. A prescription antibiotic—amoxicillin—was prescribed, and she got better. But a couple weeks later Laura was sick again, so the doctor gave her a stronger prescription. Before she finished taking that antibiotic, she became ill again. Once more, we took her to the doctor. That time, they said Laura had allergies and gave her an allergy medication.

Near the end of February, Laura had a lot of earaches, sore throat and a cough, and she battled with being sick off and on for the rest of the school term. Laura missed 20 days of school that year. In the summer, Laura quit taking the allergy medication. The end of August came and along with it came swollen glands.

We started connecting Laura’s swollen glands in the summers of 2015 and 2016 to allergies, so she started taking the allergy medication again daily right through June 2017. The winter and spring had gone better, but Laura still missed 13 days of school all due to allergies. We also tried some natural products, but nothing helped.

Then I learned that CoCoa LeafGreens helped people with allergies. I was still looking for something natural to help Laura, so we decided to give AIM products a try in June of 2017, even though I didn’t know much about them.

The results for Laura were amazing after she started taking CoCoa LeafGreens, Herbal Fiberblend and BarleyLife Xtra. And she did not get swollen glands that summer.

In December 2017, Laura still coughed off and on due to allergies, so we started giving her Herbal Release. After taking that for two weeks, her cough stopped. As of April 2018, Laura missed only one day of the school term due to allergies.

Laura now takes CoCoa LeafGreens, Herbal Fiberblend, Herbal Release, BarleyLife Xtra, AIMega, FloraFood and Composure. She has not had one single allergic reaction yet this winter and spring. We have been so grateful for AIM products and to Chairman’s Club Director Emma Miller for all the time she took in helping us to improve Laura’s health. Also God Almighty for giving someone the wisdom to make these products.

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!

Her Allergies, Constipation and Cough Just Vanished!

Shared by Cassie (Shaoqin) Yang, AIM Director in San Ramon, California

I am so thankful that Director Kathy Kong introduced me to the AIM products and to Chairman’s Club Director Dr. Yu-Shiaw Chen for sharing her knowledge about nutrition. In less than a year, I have experienced several improvements in my health.

I began taking AIM LeafGreens in February last year. It solved my constipation almost immediately. Because those results were so amazing, I ordered more products, like the AIM Garden Trio and Herbal Fiberblend. My spring allergies also vanished. I expected allergies in May because I’ve had allergy problems stretching back to 2004: nose bleeds, itchy eyes and a runny nose. They really bothered me. The medicine my doctor prescribed didn’t help at all. Surprisingly, I didn’t have any allergy symptoms in May. I believe that the AIM products helped to improve my immune system and kept me from having an allergy attack.

I always had throat problems, too. This caused me to cough a lot, and I typically
lost my voice at least twice a year. I used to see Chinese herbal doctors for acupuncture or bought herbal soups to deal with this. The cough would often last for one month, and I suffered a lot. I use the LeafGreens and the Herbal Fiberblend twice daily, and I recover very quickly now. I don’t need to see the herbal doctor anymore. It saves me money, and I don’t cough!

Last year, I had neck and back pains, which caused weakness in my legs and numbness in my toes sometimes. Around Thanksgiving, my Testimonial legs felt very weak. Dr. Yu-Shiaw Chen suggested Mag-nificence lotion. After I used it, my legs felt better. I use the lotion every day now, and my legs feel stronger and my toes aren’t numb anymore.

I am so impressed with the AIM products that I use: LeafGreens, Herbal Fiberblend, BarleyLife, CalciAIM, Herbal Release, Renewed Balance and Mag-nificence. My husband, my two sons and my parents-in-law all use and appreciate the AIM products as well. They make our lives easier, healthier and more enjoyable. Thank you, Kathy, Dr. Chen and The AIM Companies. I can’t wait to share the wonderful products with family and friends. I want them to be as healthy, as energetic and as happy as me!

A Great Testimony Has Grown My AIM Business

Great Testimony

I am a mother of four children ages 11 (Zani), 9 (Roan), 7 (Carla) and 2 (Jolanda). As a mom, my children and I have struggled a lot with health issues. I went in search of a more natural way of solving our health problems.

I met Royal Emerald Director Madaleine Helm in July 2014. My son Roan was sick all the time. He complained about a stomach ache for quite a few years which X-ray’s showed as constipation. As he got older, he often had bronchitis, terrible headaches and neck pains, later on diarrhea for weeks. I thought that this could be a food allergy.

Madaleine convinced me to take Roan for an allergy test; it came back with gluten, milk, egg and peanut sensitivity. Since then, we started using AIM BarleyLife to address the inflammation caused by the food sensitivity; we used AIM FloraFood to restore good bacteria in the small intestine and help strengthen the immune system. Herbal Fiberblend helped get rid of the constipation and diarrhea.

Carla our daughter also had ongoing stomach pain. X-rays, a CT scan and blood tests did not show anything, and then after a food sensitivity test, she was found to be sensitive to forty-four different foods. We, as a family, decided to go gluten- and dairy-free. All of us are really feeling the difference. My husband (Johan) who was not a fan of the “natural way” felt the great benefits of the AIM products, and now he is doing a lot of marketing for me. He has the Garden Trio every morning before work. He takes his Red Rush to help him perform better during his squash games.

After our family started using the products, I really had the passion to help other people with their health issues. Madaleine started doing talks for me and helps me a lot with her knowledge. After just over a year, I have one Director under me and a few people working hard to become Director soon. The best part of my AIM business is all the great testimonies of my clients and how the products have helped them with their health.

Building my AIM business was a great opportunity for me to start earning an extra income while still being with my children at home. I can plan my own work schedule. For me it is easy to market the AIM products because my family has a great testimony. I really think you first need to use the AIM products yourself, have a testimony and then share with other people. That is the only way to make a huge success of the AIM business. I don’t look back one day with regret. I am just so grateful that the AIM business has come along. I plan to keep working very hard in the new year and encourage people to also start a business; that’s the only way my AIM business can grow.

I have a good relationship with the people at South Africa’s AIM office and they are also very helpful; that makes my business also worth it. Thanks to AIM for giving me such an opportunity. It’s not such a long time that my family and I have been part of the AIM family, but what a huge difference it has made in our life. It’s unbelievable.

AIM Changed My Life!

AIM was a true godsend for me and my family.

My son was born with many allergies and eczema, and he developed asthma at the age of four. I didn’t know a single thing about nutrition, so I prayed, “Lord, show me what I am doing wrong.” During the next month, He sent me to a new Bible study group, where I was introduced to the AIM products. Very skeptically, I started my son on AIM’s green barley grass powder. After using it for only a couple of weeks, my four-year- old’s asthma started to clear up. I started to read up on health and nutrition and attended a friend’s healthy cooking demonstrations. The year was 1989, and my journey with AIM to better health had started!

This same friend told me about the AIM business opportunity. Being a stay-at-home mom with a struggling marriage, this caught my attention. I told my friend that I want to do this as a business.

The struggles in my marriage propelled me to persevere in becoming financially independent and not give up. Not long after joining AIM, I went through a divorce. Being a single mom with no financial support from my husband, I found myself going through tough times. With the moral support of friends, family, and upline, and with a monthly AIM check, my son and I got our own little two-bedroom place. I started doing more AIM talks and educated myself in health and nutrition. Before long, I was seeing people in my small townhouse, using my little dining room as an AIM office.

We used the products ourselves, but some months I only had enough income to provide my son with only one product— none for myself. We became living testimonies of the benefits of taking AIM BarleyLife® and other AIM products.

AIM has provided me the opportunity to choose my hours. Through working my AIM business, I had the wonderful opportunity to spend afternoons with my son right through primary school, taking him to after-school activities and being there for every match and cultural activity. Sometimes he even went with me to do an AIM talk, sitting in the front row, swinging his legs to and fro with his little arm in the air, saying, “Mommy, may I tell them what BarleyLife did for me?”

Through high school, I was able to be there for him, too—to watch his games, to see him grow up. I always paced myself, trying not to spend too much time on my business and neglect my first priority, which was being a mother.

In this current season of our lives, my son is off to college, turning twenty-one this year, and I am able to spend more time on AIM. I have a goal to enlarge my income and to reach as many people as possible with AIM’s excellent products and business opportunity.

Today I am married to a very kind man who gives me the freedom to do health talks, meetings and training, to travel extensively and to reach those people in need of health.

In looking back, I can truly say that the Lord sent AIM into our lives and that through AIM our lives have changed.
