He Recovered And Became a Champion Once More

I joined AIM in 2006 during a time when I was facing very serious health challenges. I had lost about 20 percent of my body weight and suffered severe joint pain, headaches and other ailments. Prior to that, I was fit, athletic, had a very successful boxing career and was even featured on a reality TV show about the sport. So these health problems not only prevented me from living a normal life but also lowered my self-esteem.

At the height of my dilemma, I attended a three-day seminar, and I literally stumbled upon a man who was sitting on the ground with all sorts of containers, capsules and green, orange and red powders. He appeared to be making some crazy concoction. The man was Star Sapphire Director Rashid Abass. I explained my health situation, and he told me about the AIM products and his own experiences, which I related to. With guidelines and help from Rashid, I made lifestyle changes and began using AIM products: The Garden Trio, Herbal Fiberblend and PrepZymes. My joint pain stopped, my sinuses and post-nasal drip improved, my headaches ceased and I was a lot more energetic. I stopped getting ill as frequently, and when I did get ill, it was not as severe as before, and recovery was very quick.

I continued to use the AIM products and got back into sports, focusing on triathlons and duathlons. In 2009, I won the Duathlon Challenge. I also run marathons frequently and am working toward improving my half-marathon time. I recently completed a 24-hour, 55-km non-stop Xtreme challenge, which consisted of obstacles like tire pulls, log-throwing and carrying sand bags. During the event, I consumed Red Rush every 3-4 hours while replenishing with a combination of Peak Endurance and CalciAIM.

My current daily training routine consists of very high intensity training. (Up to 1,000 push-ups, 500 sit-ups, 500 dips, 100 pull-ups and 45 minutes of speed-skipping). When preparing for a race, I usually train twice daily, a 5-10 k run in the mornings and conditioning and strength and weight training in the evenings. The high intensity is made possible due to the AIM products. I take the Garden Trio 2 to 3 times a day, a mixture of Peak Endurance and CalciAIM during training and Red Rush for a pre-workout. For joint health, I use Frame Essentials twice daily and Bear Paw Garlic with meals. I have very recently also introduced CellSparc 360 for cardiovascular health. I massage Magnificence onto sore areas. This reduces recovery time considerably. Every now and then, I soak in Cell Wellness Restorer, which is probably my favorite of the lot.

I have tried almost every product on the market, and to this day, I have not come across one as consistent with its results, as pure, nutritious or effective as the products from The AIM Companies. I wish every person on Earth would make AIM a part of their nutritional intake. I say this because my wife and I have personally seen our own lives and the lives of many others— from those with basic nutrition goals to those with severe life-threatening illnesses—change when they used the AIM products.

The Climb with Peak Endurance and Red Rush

Climb

In July 2015, Dimitri attempted to climb to the steep summit of Banff’s Mount Rundle— an elevation gain of 5,175 feet. This Preferred Member in Edmonton, Alberta, had AIM on his side. As for the fear factor, Dimitri admitted, “I’m really afraid of heights.”

Dimitri has been taking a variety of AIM products, including BarleyLife, since he was a young boy. He and his family had been introduced to “Nutrition that Works” by AIM Director Janet Breitkreutz.

A few days before the climb, Janet recommended that he take Peak Endurance and Red Rush. “I needed all the help I could get,” Dimitri acknowledged. “My friends and I made a pact in the spring to get in shape for the climb, but it never happened for me. I’m thirty-four now. I used to be quite athletic and fit, but I never kept that up.” At the same time, Dimitri had resolved to, “. . . push until I get to the top. I know myself. Even if I’m hurting, I’m not going to stop.”

The day arrived, and suddenly the peak loomed before Dimitri and his five friends. The idea was to scramble: climbing to the top without ropes. “The mountain went from flat to immediate elevation,” Dimitri stated. “Most of the guys were starting to hurt. Not even a quarter of the way up, I looked like someone was pouring water on me; I was sweating so badly.”

At midway, Dimitri continued to feel the burn, but each time it would go away after a few minutes of rest. “I didn’t feel any muscle cramping or gasping for breath,” he stated. “I was sipping water and Peak Endurance all the way up. Earlier I had taken one bottle of Red Rush, which really helped my breathing.”

At one point, the trail unexpectedly narrowed, and Dimitri felt his legs buckle at the sight of a vertical 1,000-foot drop. “I could feel my backpack tipping me over the edge. I had to lie down on the ground and was too scared to move,” Dimitri recalled. “Even though I could see the mountaintop, I really felt that was the end of the climb for me. All I could think about was my wife Jamie and our daughter Zarah, and what would happen to them if I fell.” One of Dimitri’s buddies encouraged him with the news that the path widened just ahead. Slowly, Dimitri moved through his fear and continued the climb.

When the group was only 400 feet from the peak—still at least an hour’s climb—dark clouds began moving in and thunder sounded. The risk of being caught on a sheer peak in a storm ended the ascent for half the group. “We were so close,” Dimitri exclaimed, “but it just wasn’t worth the risk to my family.” The remaining three who reached the top were fortunate. The storm passed them by.

“The truth is,” Dimitri added, “I was out of water and Peak Endurance for the descent. If I had tried going to the top, I never would have made it down the mountain. God was taking care of me.”

The days following the climb were not as painful as Dimitri had expected. “I thought I wouldn’t be able to move the next day,” he explained, “but I was okay. The other guys were really sore, looking like they had been horseback riding.” Dimitri believes his recovery had a lot to do with taking AIM products. “They’re amazing!”

Achieve Your Goals with AIM

 

Goals

With AIM’s natural whole-food concentrates and supplements, you have the nutritional power to maintain your health. By introducing others to this wealth of health support, you also have an opportunity to build a home-based business and earn an income.

Look what you have at your disposal: the finest natural products that promote good health and offer targeted nutrition for specific conditions, including constipation, poor circulation, joint pain and high blood sugar, just to name a few.

With nutrients that provide the building materials for wellness, concentrated greens such as AIM BarleyLife® and AIM LeafGreens™ can be the foundation of any

goal to improve health. The alkalizing, detoxifying and anti-inflammatory benefits of these nutritious greens begin at the cellular level and deliver whole-food nutrition for whole-body wellness. As opposed to a product that is synthesized in a laboratory and, therefore, foreign to the human body, BarleyLife and LeafGreens offer a natural multivitamin/mineral supplement made from a plant source produced by nature. As a result, these essential nutrients are accepted and easily assimilated by the body. The same can be said for the wealth of enzymes, chlorophyll and antioxidants and the myriad of unique plant nutrients found in BarleyLife and LeafGreens.

AIM ProPeas™ contains a vegetable source of protein from green peas, providing an essential component of every human cell. The body uses protein for building and repairing tissues; for making body chemicals, enzymes and hormones; and for the building blocks of blood, bones, muscles, cartilage, and skin.

As with alkalizing greens, the vegetable source of protein in ProPeas contributes to a healthy body pH, so it offers a meat alternative. Meat has an acidifying effect on the body, and an acidic body environment literally opens the door to disease. In fact, as of October 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified the consumption of both red meat and processed meat as probably carcinogenic to humans.

Natural health products such as AIM Herbal Fiberblend® and AIM fit ’n
fiber™* contribute to a high-fiber intake, which research has revealed to be a leading dietary factor in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes. The detoxifying properties of the fiber and herbs in Herbal Fiberblend provide a cleansing first step in health-improvement goals. Adding hunger-satisfying fit ’n fiber to a daily weight-loss routine will assist the goal of shedding unwanted pounds.

The balanced 2:1 ratio of omega-3 and-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) in AIMega® deliver the good fats that can only come from EFA-rich food or supplements. The body cannot survive without EFAs because they are essential for the repair and function of cells. The fact that omega-3 is a vital component of every cell membrane makes it less surprising that they are fundamental for so many workings of the human body, including the brain, the digestive system, the eyes, the heart, the hormonal (endocrine) system, the immune system and the skin. The EFAs in AIMega come from organic seed oils such as flaxseed, one of the richest plant sources of omega-3.

All you have to do is glance through an AIM product catalogue or visit the website to discover even more to assist you in your goals for the future. The entire AIM product line-up is available as supplemental health support for you, your family and friends. By introducing AIM benefits to others, you can become a commission-earning AIM Member. It’s a healthy win-win situation overall.

Simple Plans for Completing Goals

Motivation and willpower are necessary, but both can be short-lived. If you plan the when, where and how of your behavioral changes, you are far more likely to achieve your goals. For example, suppose you want to improve your health. Tell yourself, “Thirty minutes before every meal, I’m going to take AIM BarleyLife.” It’s much easier to accomplish health goals by giving yourself achievable tasks.

Having back-up plans when obstacles get in the way keeps you on track with your goals. For example, tell yourself, “If I’m not at home for meals, then I’ll carry some BarleyLife Sample Packs or capsules so I never miss taking these health-improving greens.”

Believe it or not, studies confirm the effectiveness of what psychology professor Peter M. Gollwitzer calls implementation intentions—simple plans that move you around obstacles and closer to your goals. It works for business building as well. So keep telling yourself, “Even if some people say no to AIM, I’m still going to find people who say yes to Nutrition that Works!”

AIM Excels Under Competition

Nick Victory

Certified personal trainer and bodybuilder Nick Victory went all-in with AIM products for a thirty-five day trial, and he achieved impressive results and a clean feeling of wellness that only AIM’s whole-food nutrition can provide.

“After about day ten, I felt an immense feeling of cleanliness in my body,” Nick said. “I felt more resilient, which, as any good muscle-building athlete knows, is everything! The ability of your body to repair those muscle fibers you tore is what leads to increased muscle mass and strength.

“Another huge plus was how my body started to treat food. With my system running cleaner, I could tell that my body was having a lot less trouble getting what it needed from my food.

“All in all, AIM did it right.”

Nick specializes in bodybuilding, and his experience with AIM served as an opportunity to test how his own body would react to whole food nutrition. He took measurements of his arms, legs, chest, and waist before and after the trial, and he stopped taking all other supplements for two weeks prior to ensure that all results achieved could be attributed to AIM.

And the results were huge! Nick experienced desired results across the board.

His trial included six products: BarleyLife, fit ’n fiber, CoCoa LeafGreens, RediBeets, Peak Endurance, and ProPeas. His consistent use of AIM products turned heads at the gym and gave him an opportunity to explain the clean feeling of wellness Nick achieved during his trial.

“The clean feeling was the coolest part,” said Nick, who continues to take the products now that his trial has ended. “Other products feel very chemical. I’ve tried a huge variety of supplement lines, and I was surprised to discover that AIM really did stand up to the competition. AIM did the trick, and AIM helped my body to feel good.”

“If you want it enough, and want to be healthy doing it, AIM can help.”

My Journey to Healthy and Beyond

TM

Shared by Tamara Matteson, AIM Preferred Member, Grants Pass, Oregon

I have been overweight all of my life, attending my first Weight Watchers meeting at the age of nine. By 2002 I had reached my all-time, heaviest weight of 293 pounds. After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I began a journey to find my way to good health.

Using a variety of different diets and methods, I have managed to lose over 100 pounds, but I was still not eating very healthy and felt tired all the time. My blood sugar continued to be unstable.

This changed when I found The AIM Companies and My Busy Healthy Life with AIM Director Celeste Davis. After doing a twenty-one-day cleanse, I felt great and my blood sugar stabilized. I am now learning how to maintain these improvements. AIM products are awesome, and my body loves them.

Lifestyle changes along the way have been essential to keeping the weight off. I am not
eating fast food for nearly every meal any more. Even though it took several years to end an addiction to drinking soda pop, I gave it up. [Editor’s note: U.S. studies show that soda drinking is associated with a 25 percent increase in the risk of developing diabetes.] I started eating more foods that were raw and natural.

It is still quite a challenge to get the recommended daily servings of vegetables. I think that is why I am so excited about AIM products like the Garden Trio®. I can easily get the supplemental nutrition I need, making it so much easier to stay with the healthier choices I am trying to make. Since I started taking all the supplements, I feel so much better. I hope to share them with other people who have weight and health issues because I really do believe in AIM and the quality of the AIM products.

Testimonials should not be construed as representing results everybody can achieve.

Anton “The Professor” Zafir

Intelligent Choices Inside and Outside of the Ring

Zafir

Anton Zafir’s first professional bout was in June 2012. In just two short years, Anton “The Professor” Zafir—he has a graduate diploma in exercise and a bachelor’s degree in the Science of Sports—rose to the top of the Australian Mixed Martial Arts scene, winning the the Nitro Welterweight title belt after defeating the former champion by unanimous decision. Zafir is known for a fighting style that “pushes the pace” and forces his opponents into uncomfortable positions where they are likely to make mistakes. He capitalizes on their blunders and turns them into victories. His canny fighting style has netted him a (6-1) record.

Anton is as clever outside the ring as he is inside because he knows the value of the whole-food nutrition found in the AIM products.

As the Australian Nitro Welterweight Champion, my training regime is rigorous and intense, and my dietary requirements need to be of the highest quality to ensure recovery and peak performance. I have never been a fan of processed supplements that are widely used without full knowledge of their negative side effects. With this in mind, I researched a great deal to find a healthy, 100 percent natural company that provided top-level dietary supplements. My search finally met with success when I was introduced to AIM a year ago.

“AIM Red Rush® is my favorite daily drink. It dramatically boosts my energy and endurance for training and competition.

“I use AIM Peak Endurance™ for upkeep and replenishment of energy after each grueling training session, AIM Herbal Fiberblend® for removing bodily waste and toxins and the maintenance of blood sugar levels, AIM BarleyLife® for a healthy immune system and energy, AIM ProPeas™ for added protein to repair and build muscle, AIM fit ’n fiber™ for my digestive system because it reduces my appetite while lowering my fat levels and helps to maintain fat loss for competition preparation. I also use AIMega® to attain my omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids for general health.

“Since taking the all-natural AIM supplements, I now work out longer and harder. I recover faster and have suffered less injury; I can maintain and cut weight without starving or depleting my body. I go into training and competition strong and healthy with extended stamina.

“I would recommend that other athletes use the same combination of products to obtain strong, continual health by using AIM’s natural, great-tasting nutrition. Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed!”

AIM Business Passed Down to Granddaughter…

shock

...but she made Director on her own. 

AIM Director Tiki McIntyre of New Orleans has been drinking AIM’s green barley powder since she was a little kid. “I started taking it regularly about twenty-two years ago, but my father, Patrick Ryan, originally introduced me to it as a small child. He was always into fitness and health. He was an AIM Director who made a couple of thousand dollars a month in checks and went to a bunch of conferences like the one in Alaska. We had a hardware store and bike shop. He worked his AIM business from there. If anyone bought AIM’s green barley powder out of the Alexandria area in those days, they bought it from him. All different kinds of people came to the hardware store to talk to him about it. He had a massive downline. One of the things he told me was that ‘You have to have meetings.’ Dad had meetings all the time.

“Father would say ‘no white sugar, no white rice’ and he posted a sign up with that on it at the store. That’s what he’s taught me and that’s what I’ve taught my children. He baked his own bread and ate whole grains. He finally had to quit selling AIM products because it conflicted with his insurance job. He still takes AIM BarleyLife® and AIM Herbal Fiberblend®. He is meticulous about it. He had to give his business to his wife. I didn’t inherit the business from dad, I took over my grandfather’s business and made Director on my own. “

Tiki’s grandfather, Jerry L. Ryan, signed up under her father and she still has his briefcase containing old AIM Companies magazines, lots of brochures, and pamphlets with tips on how to take barley powder and caplets. The briefcase even has an old AIM advertising kit that looks like it was printed out on a dot matrix printer. There’s also promotional material that the Member literally has to cut out pictures of the AIM Garden Trio® with scissors. Her sister and her aunt are also AIM Members.

“I’m a personal trainer and studied exercise physiology at Louisiana State University. I firmly believe that healthcare problems start with what you put in your mouth and how active you are. If a machine sits out in the field and doesn’t do anything, it gets all rusty. That’s just what happens to your body.

“I like to live like a New Orleanian. I like to eat the local foods and have a glass of wine with friends. That’s why the AIM products are so great. I drink the AIM juices and if I want to go out to dinner then I can and I know that my nutrition has been taken care of. I can enjoy life without scrimping around eating celery all the time. The standard American diet doesn’t give people enough nutrition, but with the AIM products, I don’t have to worry about it as much. I don’t have to adhere to any crazy diet plan. Juicing with the AIM products is sustainable and easy. It’s there and it’s done. If I had to do all that juicing and had to clean the juicer and the counters and deal with the rinds and stuff, I wouldn’t do it. I’m too busy. That’s why the AIM products are so great for me. My husband, my kids and I are able to maintain healthy, nutritious diets conveniently.

“I’m going to continue the family legacy by passing on AIM to my kids. My husband’s daughter is taking the AIM products. I’m going to sign her up when she goes off to school. She takes BarleyLife, Herbal Fiberblend and AIM Proancynol®. Proancynol really helps her with her allergies.

“My kids love BarleyLife. My two-year-old and I were at a member of my downline’s house when she saw a BarleyLife canister there. She near-hyperventilated with excitement, pointing and yelling ‘Yes!’ ‘Yes!’ All my kids love it. I put the Garden Trio powder and a little flour into a bowl and my kids play with it like pixie sticks. They eat it dry. I was at the gym and one of my clients complained about his knee and my daughter happened to be there. She said ‘if you took your BarleyLife, your knee wouldn’t hurt.’ She was three when she said that. Around our house, we don’t drink chocolate milk, we drink AIM CoCoa LeafGreens®. We don’t drink Gatorade, we drink AIM Peak Endurance®.

“Nowadays, you have to be vigilant about nutrition. In my grandfather’s time, you just had nutrition—from the garden, snap peas and carrots. Back then, they had to cook. They didn’t have McDonald’s on every corner and trans fat. They used real butter and it was fine.

“We’re working with the other moms and the school to limit the amount of sugar at birthday parties. The food they serve at school is substandard. It’s in the best interest of the schools to serve the best foods. Instead they serve fruit that’s been soaking in syrup. They give kids sugary foods and expect them to behave properly and not to crave more sugar. It’s crazy how much sugar is in the food. I could scream it from the mountaintops. My sister’s kid has ADHD and when she takes BarleyLife and cuts back on her sugar intake, it really helps.

I believe a lot of problems will go away if you have proper nutrition. I believe in AIM.”
