AIM Changed My Life

Shared by Sandy Berry, Group Builder in Tarlton, South Africa

In 2017, I listened to an AIM presentation from Royal Emerald Director Madaleine Helm that addressed a number of health issues. My own included osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and anemia along with hot flashes that disappeared only five days after I started taking BarleyLife and using Renewed Balance.

Shortly afterward, I found out that my seven-year-old daughter, Hayley, had
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Having her tested for food sensitivities revealed she had celiac disease as well. I put her on a variety of AIM products, including BarleyLife Xtra, CoCoa LeafGreens and FloraFood. As for changing her diet, I removed anything that contained gluten. For good measure, we are busy eliminating dairy as well.

Two months later, my twenty-six-year-old daughter, Tarryn, was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I gave her BarleyLife, Herbal Fiberblend, Frame Essentials and Peak Endurance as well as Renewed Balance. These products have helped her to
feel better.

As for Hayley, seven months of being on the AIM products has made a huge improvement in her well-being. I can almost say she is a different child. She’s not so aggressive anymore. And she falls asleep within fifteen minutes instead of the three hours it used to take. I really notice that her concentration is much better. Overall, Hayley is just a far more pleasant little girl. Giving her AIM products is of utmost importance to me because I believe she’s getting the best support available.

To share what AIM products mean to me and my family, I decided to study AIM’s online courses to learn more about them and how the company works. You cannot promote AIM products if you have no idea what they can do for you or how the body works. I graduated from the AIM Academy in April, so now I have a better understanding of how the body needs AIM nutrition to function optimally.

I hope that more people will educate themselves and help give other people the best possible health solutions. I will always try to increase my own knowledge so that I can give the best of myself to everyone I meet. If I can help just one person, I’ll feel I have accomplished my goal in life. This is why I now sell AIM products to all who want to better their health.

Thank you to Madaleine Helm and The AIM Companies™ for changing my life. I am truly blessed.

Champions Forever with AIM

If you are a fan of the television program America’s Got Talent (AGT), then you have probably seen one of the most amazing acts to ever appear on the show: Bruce and Diane Crevier and their—count them—twelve children performing their “Spin-tacular Basketball Show”.

The road to AGT has been a long one for the Creviers. Their determination to succeed has meant a lot of miles, sacrifices and worn-out vehicles along the way: Honda Civics, mini-vans, fifteen passenger vans and a variety of motor homes up to their current mode of transport: a forty-five-foot tour bus, as the family travels and performs all over the world.

The Crevier Mission

It’s not just about being impressively entertaining. At the heart of their perfor­mances is a nonprofit mini­stry, “Champions Forever Ministries”, with a message. The family goes out of its way to encourage people to win at the game of life. As the inspirational words on the homepage of their website proclaim, it is their goal, “To know Jesus Christ, and to make Him known. To use our talents and resources to inspire, encourage, equip, and challenge youth and adults to become Champions in the Game of Life!”

The Spinning Beginning

It all began with Bruce’s childhood. He comes from a family of twelve children! Being the eleventh of twelve, he had ten older brothers and sisters who all played sports. His older brothers went to college and roomed with a guy who could spin a basketball. The brothers brought that skill home and taught their younger sister, Tanya, how to spin. Tanya learned and got good at spinning and dribbling basketballs. Tanya is ten years older than Bruce, and when Bruce was just seven years old, Tanya taught him to spin a basketball on his finger. Seeing his brothers and sisters excel in sports fueled his desire to be a great athlete, but he was never the fastest or the most talented on any team. What he lacked in size and talent, he made up for working hard and practicing. His fascination with doing tricks with basketballs inspired him to practice for thousands of hours. After many years of practice, he put these skills together into an entertaining show that has taken him all over the USA and to over 40 countries around the world.

As Bruce’s family grew, he taught these skills to his wife, Diane, and their twelve children, and today, the family brings a whole new dimension to the “Spin-tacular Basketball Show”! It is no surprise that the Creviers performed for game 3 of the 2015 NBA Finals, game 6 of the 2016 NBA Finals, and went all the way to Radio City Music Hall and performed for the finals of AGT. As a five-time world record holder, Bruce can spin twenty-one basketballs at the same time and can spin one basketball without a break for over twenty-two hours! This talent gives him an avenue into the hearts of people of all ages. Today they not only entertain, but use their talent as a platform to share a message of hope in schools, churches, community and business organizations, parades, prisons, basketball halftime shows, and anywhere else you can dribble and spin a basketball!

The Road to AIM

When Bruce and Diane were first married, they made it their goal to live a healthy lifestyle. They received a juicer as a wedding gift, and cleaned up their diet. With their new juicer, they would make fresh vegetable juice as often as possible. This included carrot juice, green juice, beet juice and any other juice that could benefit their active lifestyle, their traveling, and their Spin-tacular Basketball Show. Even though juicing fresh veggies can be time consuming and messy, they were seeing the many health benefits. This compelled them to start feeding it to their growing family, but their travel schedule made it difficult to keep up their juicing regimen on the road. Besides, who wants to travel with a large juicer and 50 pounds of carrots? The couple prayed about it, and years ago, found a company that sells one of the most nutrient-packed juice powders in the world! This company takes the mess and headache out of juicing! Enter The AIM Companies™! Bruce and Diane give all the credit to God for their lifestyle. He put it on their heart to exercise, eat right and have AIM products as a large part in keeping their family healthy and their bodies in top shape.

Bruce and Diane were inspired to take the Garden Trio, becoming Preferred Mem­bers whose upline are Mike and Heidi Toft, AIM Directors. Because of the many health benefits and ease of taking their products, Bruce contacted the head office regarding a sponsorship. It is also no surprise that they were signed up as the very first AIM-Sponsored Group.

Having this “Spin-tacular” family as part of the AIM team gives The AIM Companies™ a “Bounce” in their step, and yet another positive “Spin” for getting the word out to the world that AIM Independent Distributors are truly “Champions” and purveyors of Nutrition that Works!

Too Good to Be True, But It Is!

How is it possible to have self-actualization, men­tor­ship of others, a “ministry work” of sharing knowledge and encouragement for which to help others as well as a business income that lasts through your fifties, sixties, seventies and beyond?

AIM makes it all possible as a company where ALL are joined in a common cause that not only improves people’s lives but also provides a wonderful, caring company staff who helps us share the finest nutritional supplements in the world.

The only people who did not draw benefit from AIM products were those who didn’t take them. When I call new customers three to five days later and they say, “Well, I haven’t taken BarleyLife yet.” I say quietly, “Oh, I am SO sorry. Please forgive me if I failed to tell you that the juice powder does not do anything if it stays in the canister!” This always gets a laugh.

That’s when I suggest that new Members start a new habit that ties in with an old one, such as brushing their teeth first thing in the morning and putting their toothbrush under the Garden Trio canisters. If they experience no immediately noticeable ben­efits, I tell them good nutrition is never wasted on the body.

Additionally, AIM makes sure that people are satisfied or they get a full refund for what they have spent. In all my years with this company, I have never ceased to be amazed at its goodness toward others as well as its support for business builders like me.

Don’t forget: an AIM business can be built while staying in your home or even adding it to another job you might have. However, you’ll need to study so that you have the knowledge to help others. AIM makes this so easy: teleclasses, webinars, social media and, especially, the AIM Academy.

As you mature in knowledge, the door opens to the great work of mentoring others. You just need to be alert to the “door of helping” that you will surely get if you ask
God to use you and the knowledge He has given you. He will open many doors. You might be just as surprised as me about where it all leads and how much pleasure you get from helping others build businesses of their own.

Preparation for a Cycling World Record

Sixty-year-old Wimpie van der Merwe,
Red Rush Athlete and AIM Preferred Member sets his sights on The Hour

My name is Wimpie van der Merwe, proudly South African and sixty years old. I recently attempted the master’s world record for the Hour. It’s the most prestigious record in cycling, attempting to ride the furthest distance in 60 minutes.

The Hour is even more valued than a Tour de France victory. Only the best in cycling have ever held this record. For most, it’s a career-ending effort. Not only is the Hour so physically demanding, it is so emotionally fulfilling that there is hardly any worthwhile goal to fulfill after achieving it.

An Impressive Cycling Career

During my cycling career, I have broken many records: 12 world, 18 African and 18 South African, setting records on both sides of the spectrum with distances from 200 meters to 1,000 kilometers. Presently, I still hold records: 12 South African, 11 African and 1 world, making me one of the most accom­plished riders in the history of cycling.

Remaining very active on the international scene, I competed in the 1,400 km ultra-endurance London Edinburgh London (LEL) race in the first few days of August 2017. All of these achievements have made me one of the most knowledgeable cyclists when it comes to preparation of the mind and body for speed and endurance. And I’m willing to share some of these principles

The Science of Cycling Endurance

At the outset, I had to become my own scientist, learning through ex­perimentation and making my own mis­takes. There are no scientists who have been there to tell me what to do. In fact, scientists study and follow sportsmen like me. And at this level of competition, I had to accept that there is no manual to follow.

Mentally, someone who wants to do what I do should have a single-minded purpose, not accept “no” for an answer, have an innate desire to test the limits, never be satisfied with the status quo, be persistent and focused, make friends with pain and dis­com­fort, be willing to sacrifice more than the rest of the com­­petition, un­der­stand that limitations are man-made and that “impossible” is a silly word.

Most of the time it is easier to know what to do than to do what you know because it costs discipline and sacrifice to put know­ledge into action and reach the pinnacle of
success. To be the best in your sport, there is no shortcut. So if you want to ruin your life and reputation, you can follow in the footsteps of Lance Armstrong.

Building a Foundation for Success

The basics of sport are the same as in building a house: to have a roof, you need to have walls and a foundation. The foundation of any success lies in the preparation phase, sometimes a multi-year period. Money cannot buy it. You cannot borrow it. You cannot replace it with a pill. Stamina, or mileage, the slow conditioning, muscle and body chemistry development phase is the primary part of any preparation.

About 60 percent of your time spent in preparing and nurturing stamina will be below an effort of a heart rate zone of 2-2.5 millimoles per litre (mMol) lactate. What follows is the power phase. About 30 percent of your time is spent at a corresponding effort of up to 4 mMol lactate. This is an effort that starts distinguishing the men from the boys.

The Hour record is done at an intensity as close as possible to the 4 mMol level. This is the “pay-as-you-go” level. The art of the Hour record is to be able to keep your effort exactly on this level. It can be explained as follows: If you go one beat faster, you are in oxygen debt and have to slow down, paying interest for the effort that was too hard. If you go one beat slower, it is ground you lost and can never make up again.

The final 10 percent of your time spent in preparation is in the zone above 4 mMol lactate. This is the red zone, the roof of your building. This is where strength manifests, lactic acid tolerance is developed and, at the same time, the most physical and mental damage occurs. It is the reason why you spend the least of your time here. It is quality time. It is the zone of pain and discomfort. It is the zone where your character is reflected. This is the zone that everyone subconsciously wants to avoid because fatigue makes cowards of us all. This is the top of the pyramid and as we all know, the higher the pyramid, the broader its base should be (stamina).

The Legal Edge: AIM Red Rush

Red Rush has proven itself so beneficial for these two latter zones because it delays the onset of fatigue. For the same workload to reach maximal heart rate, you can now last at least 16 percent longer. Because it enables the body to work more efficiently with fat as a source of energy, it lowers lactate levels at the same workload than before.

I drink one Red Rush daily to top up my nitrate levels and two before a major workout or competition to help me last longer and give me the legal edge to shatter human limitations they call world records.

AIM Star Sapphire Direction Promotion: Ginette Paquin

 

July turned into a special month for Ginette Paquin this year. She promoted to AIM Star Sapphire Director, reaching an elite position in the AIM Member Income Plan.

When Ginette joined AIM back in 1998, she was already on the road to quick promotions, becoming a Preferred Member within a month. In less than a year and a half, she promoted to Director. To date, Ginette has 117 memberships in her downline.

Over the years, her AIM journey has taken Ginette to the distant shores of Madagascar and back. After operating a health clinic for fourteen years in her native Quebec, Ginette closed it in 2009. Then she and her husband, Mario Foster, moved to Madagascar, where Ginette did mission work. And she brought AIM products to share with the locals.

Working with children living on the street, Ginette got involved with Love-n-Care Ministries. Later, they founded Youth Challenge, which worked to teach children French, sign language and life skills as well as be fed two nutritious meals when they come to school. They have funded the building of schools that children attend for free. Along with receiving a basic education, the children study music, sewing, embroidery and life skills.

Using income from her AIM business, Ginette and Mario have helped to fund ministries and missionaries in Madagascar as well as provide a private-school education for eleven children in need.

Ginette and Mario have been married for thirty-one years, raising two children of their own. Their son Philippe and his wife Josée have three children, Nadia, Gabriel and Nicolas. Their daughter Jennifer is the mother of Kelly-Anne and Noah. All of Ginette and Mario’s family members are on the AIM products, including their five grandchildren. As for her own favorites, Ginette chooses the Daily Essentials Pack (Canada) — BarleyLife, Herbal Fi­ber­blend and AIMega — plus CellSparc 360.

When Ginette returned to Canada in 2015, people began calling her about re-opening her clinic. “I believe my calling is to help others with their health,” Ginette stated. ”It gives me additional freedom to help more people.” Meeting people in their homes or having them visit her home has been beneficial in helping to educate them on nutrition and to regain their health by using the AIM products. “Datasheets are my favorite sales tool. So much information is given at meetings, so having datasheets in their hands to see and read is very helpful.”

“We are so grateful for The AIM Com­panies™ and the products they offer that helped changed our lives as well as the lives of those we share with,” Ginette said. “I would like to personally thank Andrée Jobin from French Services for all her help, support and friendship. When we were in Madagascar, she was always so helpful.”

Ginette’s advice for building a successful AIM business is to truly want to help others with their health, adding “When you love your neighbors and do good for them, God will open the door and all will fall into place.”

Diabetes is Bad But Reducing Inflammation with AIM Products Can Help

Diseases deserve their awful-sounding names: tuberculosis, fibromyalgia, cancer. No matter how you say them, they sound as bad as they are and make life worse than it ever should be.

There’s one particular disease out there with a growing, rippling effect around the globe. That’s because the number of people in the world who have diabetes is increasing with each passing year. The worldwide statistic for adults living with diabetes was 108 million in 1980. By 2014 that number had reached 422 million.

The Impact of Type 2 Diabetes

The majority have type 2 diabetes—the body makes insulin, but cells don’t use it effectively. That means blood sugar remains high, circulating throughout the body and causing chronic inflammation. Shockingly, it used to be a disease that only adults developed but now commonly affects children.

Type 2 diabetes is bad because it can damage eyes, kidneys, the heart, blood vessels and nerves, resulting in blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke or lower limb amputation. Diabetes is really bad.

Lifestyle changes, such as a proper diet and regular exercise to maintain a healthy weight, can be effective in preventing or reversing type 2 diabetes. So it just doesn’t make sense that more and more people are being diagnosed.

Or maybe it makes perfect sense when considering the worldwide embracement of poor nutrition: fatty fast foods, processed foods, sugar-filled foods and drinks! They are not natural, so consuming them on a regular basis creates unnatural side effects like chronic inflammation that can lead to the onset of type 2 diabetes.

A 2003 study published by the American Diabetes Association shows that people with type 2 diabetes have higher levels of inflammation, particularly with the presence of cytokines1: inflammatory chemicals often stored in fat tissue.

It’s a given that if you have—or are told to be at risk of—type 2 diabetes, lifestyle changes are necessary, mainly in regard to eating whole foods that are primarily plant-based. For example, dark, leafy green vegetables are an ideal food to combat inflammation.

Anti-Inflammatory Nutrition

BarleyLife delivers anti-inflammatory properties in the natural balance of nutrients found in barley grass, concentrated into a unique juice powder. The body thrives on a daily supply of antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, min­erals and vitamins, especially when these nutrients come from a plant-based source as rich as barley grass.

AIMega contains omega-3 essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce but requires to reduce inflammation. AIMega’s bal­anced 2:1 ratio of omega-3 and -6 from organic seed oils contribute to the healthy membrane structure and function of every cell.

Herbal Fiberblend or fit ’n fiber provide the anti-inflammatory properties of fiber, which slows down digestion and the release of glucose into the blood. Additionally, insulin is not required to digest fiber, so blood sugar levels are not spiked. A high-fiber intake makes the stomach feel full for a long time, helping to maintain a healthy weight.

GlucoChrom offers a natural way to increase the effective action of insulin, which channels blood sugar where it belongs: into cells that use glucose as an energy source, not a source of inflammation. The GlucoChrom combination of chromium, vanadium citrate, Gymnema sylvestre leaf extract and bitter melon fruit also helps to metabolize carbohydrates and fats, which assists with weight management.

Diabetes is bad, but there are natural ways to combat the bad and make it better. AIM leads the natural way.
