Natural Living with AIM

Liana

Back in 1997, AIM Director Liana Kopalyan thought she was headed for a career as an attorney. With a BA in hand, law school was the next step. After marrying Nerses Kopalyan, she decided to take a year off before continuing her studies.

During that time off, she found a small cyst after performing a breast self-exam. Her doctor recommended that the benign, tumorous mass be surgically removed. Within less than a year, it grew back. Her grandmother had died from breast cancer, so Liana felt there was a high possibility that the same thing could happen to her.

“I remember praying to God to show me what was wrong with my body,” Liana said. The next day she received a telephone call from Alice Muradyan, her friend and AIM Director, about a seminar in Mission Viejo, California, being conducted by Mary-Ann Shearer, AIM Chairman’s Club Director. Liana went to the event with a friend. “I was crying the entire time during the seminar,” she admitted. Approaching Mary-Ann afterward, Liana asked her for help.

Mary-Ann put her on a lifestyle-changing program, assuring Liana that within a month her body would repair itself and the cyst would melt away. “I bought everything Mary-Ann was selling, stocking up on AIM BarleyLife®, and then reading her books and doing research,” Liana said. “Deciding to do everything new, I trashed all of the bad food in my kitchen and went shopping at Whole Foods.”

Having decided to be 100 percent committed to the recommended lifestyle changes, it took only two weeks for her body to heal. To make sure that the cyst was no longer there, she went back to the same doctor who was now confused about whether it was the right or left breast because the cyst was gone. “It’s not difficult to comprehend. My body healed itself with nutrition like BarleyLife,” Liana stated. “I constantly take it!”

The journey to becoming an attorney reached a fork in the road at this point in Liana’s life. Instead of going to law school, she took Mary-Ann’s two-year course to become a Natural Health Consultant. Liana explained, “I got serious about good health for my family.”

In 2002, the family moved from California to Nevada, where they began attending the International Church of Las Vegas. “Our pastors, Paul and Denise Goulet, became our spiritual parents,” Liana stated, “providing leadership and bible training. After getting to know us, they supported me in teaching nutrition classes for the church.” She used Mary- Ann’s book as an outline and added fitness lessons as well.

Since 2010, Liana has been using her own workbook, 7 Keys to Vibrant Health, which makes it easy to understand and implement the lifestyle changes required to achieve and maintain wellness. Supplementing with AIM nutrition is one of the keys.

“I teach people that with the correct nutrition, the body can heal itself,” Liana  said. “As a general rule, I recommend the Daily Essentials—BarleyLife® for greens, AIMega® for omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids, and AIM Herbal Fiberblend® for fiber and cleansing herbs. During the winter months, the AIM Garden Trio® is a must.”

Thousands of people have gone through Liana’s Natural Living program, and most arrived with health issues that ranged from the common cold, the flu, and weight management to life-threatening problems, including high cholesterol, depression, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. By practicing the lessons learned, thousands have had incredible success, such as AIM Group Builder Gil Quintana, who was able to reverse a type 2 diabetes diagnosis and went on to become a part of Liana’s team.

“I have amazing team members with incredible testimonials,” Liana acknowledged, “including a woman who was able to heal from uterine cancer. Without chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery, three tumors disappeared within six months. She healed the natural way.”

Word of mouth is one of the most effective forms of advertising, and word got out about Liana and her effective methodology. Class sizes and schedules increased, and it was not long before she was holding seminars outside of Las Vegas for audiences of 100 to 1,000 in places such as Mexico and as far away as Armenia, where Liana was born and raised. She also teaches private clients from the USA, France, Holland, and Russia.

Her original intent to keep her family in good health has also come to pass. Liana and her husband, Nerses, who is a full-time pastor of the Armenian Church of Las Vegas have two daughters, Ovsanna and Loyda, and a son, Samuel. All three children take AIM products.

Liana is currently working out of a wellness center in Las Vegas and in the process of opening her own nutrition center. Her vision is to provide 100 percent natural products and services for clients and students local and abroad.

Looking back on what Liana feels is a divine connection that led her on this journey, she acknowledged, “I am grateful to Mary-Ann Shearer for restoring my health. Over the years she has been my teacher, professor, role model, and now an amazing mentor.”

School Years, Healthy Years

School BL

It’s that time of year again: back-to-school. Whether you have children in elementary or high school or in college, AIM supplemental nutrition can help maintain their health and boost brain power for scholastic success.

As much as educational institutions are a source of knowledge and a means of advancement in life, schools are also a breeding ground for colds, flus, infections, etc. Whatever you can do to support a child’s immune system will go a long way in making school years healthy years.

For younger children, AIM BarleyLife® Xtra and AIM CoCoa LeafGreens™ Sample Packs are convenient ways for parents to give them a nutritional edge for body and mind.

BarleyLife® Xtra delivers the super nutritional, immune-boosting benefits of barley grass juice concentrate along with the sweet “Xtra” taste and nutrition from eighteen fruit and vegetable powders. Even young children can use the AIM Blender Bottle by adding water and a packet of powder and shaking up a nutritious green drink.

The same can be said for blending packets of CoCoa LeafGreens, which provide three types of calming, brain-boosting cocoa. A calm, focused mind is what every student
needs for academic growth. In 2013, the American Botanical Council published a study that determined cocoa contains polyphenolic compounds that not only enhance calmness, but also increase blood flow to the brain, improving cognition. And CoCoa LeafGreens also delivers nourishing greens, so students can enjoy a cocoa-licious drink that’s good for them.

For older students, initial forays into independence usually include a nutritional drop-off. Fast foods, incomplete meals and soft drinks can eventually take a toll even on the healthiest young people. Getting their three Daily Essentials is a priority to avoid sliding down the slippery slope into poor health. Greens, fiber and essential fatty acids (EFAs) are daily necessities, and the Daily Essentials Starter Pack provides all three in convenient capsule form.

  • AIM BarleyLife® for greens that ensure a quality source of natural nutrients
  • AIM Herbal Fiberblend® for fiber and herbs that cleanse and keep a body regular
  • AIMega® for EFAs that the body requires for healthy cell replication and performance

Packing a weekly supply in supplement cases ensures that busy students always have Nutrition that Works! on hand for healthy learning.

Red Rush for the Ages

1468816_1444113745836200_2239456597275713696_n

By now, every AIM Member is aware of the athletic benefits of beet juice. We all know that Red Rush provides a boost of much needed stamina to competitive athletes and helps them recover quickly from their grueling workouts. However, the athletic benefits are just the beginning. Did you know that there have been over sixteen studies that have shown that beet juice can lower blood pressure? The most recent one found that the blood pressure benefits of daily beet juice consumption lasted for two weeks after the subjects stopped drinking the juice.

Our veins can become damaged by a sedentary lifestyle, the aging process and by poor dietary choices. This damage disrupts the body’s ability to create nitric oxide. In fact, the inability to produce sufficient amounts of nitric oxide is the main feature of endothelial dysfunction. Red Rush provides the body with 500 mg of dietary nitrate, the building blocks of nitric oxide. To put that amount in perspective, the average American gets 60- 120 mg of dietary nitrate a day. Someone on the Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension Diet consumes 500-660 mg. One tiny shot of Red Rush provides you with your daily dose of therapeutic dietary nitrate. Red Rush may also provide these other benefits:

Lowers Blood Pressure
In a recent study, participants who drank beet juice saw an 8/4 mmHg reduction in blood pressure, a 20 percent improvement in blood vessel dilation and a 10 percent reduction in arterial stiffness.

Jann Abrams

Improves Cognitive Functioning
Improved cranial blood flow has been linked to enhanced cognitive functioning and quicker reaction times. Drinking beet juice to improve blood flow to the brain is also being researched as a way to mitigate the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s

Assists with Basic Mobility
One study found that beet juice consumption made walking twelve percent easier, and recently, scientists at Kansas State University have been giving beet juice to heart failure patients in order to help get them mobile again, a critical factor of their recoveries.

Sleep
Nitric oxide facilitates sleep, and due to improved blood flow, it may assist the brain in achieving essential rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.

Warmer, Healthier Skin
Healthy circulation improves skin quality and keeps the extremities nice and warm.

Gene Blasingame

Nutrient Delivery
When the circulatory system is working well, the body can repair itself faster by moving white blood cells, nutrients, medicine and platelets to the affected areas.

Sexual Health
Nearly 90 percent of erectile dysfunction can be linked to poor circulation, and there is some evidence that a percentage of female sexual dysfunction is related to improper blood flow.

Jet Lag
When the cabin pressure lowers, so does the oxygen in your blood. Beet juice has been shown to improve oxygen utilization, allowing people to get more use out of less oxygen.

Weight Loss
Nitric oxide may help improve metabolic rates, and a surprising study found that dietary nitrate could help change white fat into the
easier-to-burn brown fat.

Energy
Having sufficient amounts of nitric oxide can really energize the body. Additionally, one of the biggest symptoms of poor circulation is fatigue. Red Rush can provide natural energy.

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!

Mary-Ann and Mark Shearer Reach Million Dollar Club

Mark and Mary-Ann Shearer

Chairman’s Club Directors Mark and Mary-Ann Shearer of Gordon’s Bay in the Western Cape province of South Africa have not had a doctor bill due to ill health in over thirty years. Prior to that, they suffered from all sorts of ailments: ear infections, allergies, depression, blood pressure issues, etc. When they switched to a plant-based diet and a regimen of daily exercise, their health problems subsided.

In 1991 Mary-Ann was given a canister of AIM’s green barley powder. Mary-Ann didn’t even try it. “Until you bring me scientific evidence not done by the company, I will not look at it,” she said. Over the next eight years, various AIM Members tried to convince Mary- Ann to give the AIM products a chance.

In 1999, Mark spoke with Hermana, a missionary friend who told him that her AIM income allowed her to do missionary work in Israel. She asked that Mark have Mary-Ann phone Chairman’s Club Director Joan van Rensburg. She did, and Joan visited and brought some independent scientific research with her.

The Shearers tried BarleyLife® out on their family, the staff of their whole-food business and even on the dog and the cat. The lesions caused by sun damage on Mark’s back cleared up. They both had more energy, especially mid-afternoon. The children found that they concentrated better at school and their skin issues disappeared. The staff had some serious detox symptoms at first, but none of them got colds or flus if kept on the BarleyLife.

“What sets AIM apart is that the products have integrity—they actually work every time! The compensation plan is generous and easy to work and the people who head the company are Godly and genuine— there is no hype. You don’t need it when the products change your life!” Mary-Ann said.

Mark and Mary-Ann take the Garden Trio® every morning along with three or four AIMega® capsules. (This blend of omegas work better than any other, and they’ve tried dozens). They use Red Rush almost daily for cycling. Mark takes Frame Essentials® for an old running injury. They add ProPeas® to their morning smoothies when they want vanilla flavor, Para 90® a couple times a year, Composure® for natural pain relief, flying or for trouble sleeping and use Herbal Fiberblend® for digestive issues.

The products that she recommends that everyone takes are the ones that she’s highlighted in her 100 Days to Health Program developed specifically to help her downline grow their businesses: BarleyLife for overall health, AIMega for overall health, especially endocrine function and Herbal Fiberblend for digestive health. Their Five Steps to Health Program has transformed lives in less than three months.

“We’ve seen blood pressures and blood sugars stabilize, cholesterol drop and some serious auto immune issues go into remission.” Mary-Ann advises that anyone starting out in their AIM Business should “use the products, get to know the products well, do all the training AIM offers and in the meantime, start telling friends what AIM has done for you. Have a plan. For example: Sign one person up each week. Talk to people, but focus on helping them, not on making money! Then find three of the people that you’ve signed up who are motivated and who order regularly and help them build by doing what you have done. Once you have three Directors, focus on the next three people and so on until you have twelve. Make Chairman’s Club your goal and don’t give up. Make sure that you and your team know all the products that AIM has. List ten reasons to use each and highlight the top three. Develop an email database and send regular emails to your downline. Use social media like Facebook, Twitter, etc. to let people know what is new and how the products are helping people.”

Mary-Ann said that she and her husband faced setbacks on their way to making the Million Dollar Club. But when they refocused on the core of why they were in AIM — to help people get well, stay well and earn an income — it motivated them every time.

The Shearer’s built their business by using AIM’s USSBT formula. They say it works well.

Ussbt

“There are thousands of stories we could tell; over 9,000 people have completed the 100 Days to Health, and although not all have used the AIM products, those that do have the quickest and most dramatic improvements in health. People find that weight drops off, blood pressure is regulated, depression goes, skin improves dramatically, people sleep better and their children seldom if ever get sick. The most dramatic story I can tell you was about a young mother in the UK who was pregnant with her second child when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She started taking BarleyLife and AIMega. Within two weeks, there was a huge improvement and she went into complete remission. She has been well since and gave birth to a healthy child.”

As for the future, the Shearers are working to get their total downline volume to 120,000 in the next year. They only need to get a few more Elite Directors and a few more people in the Chairman’s Club. They also hope to spend more time in the US, working on that leg of their business.

Nutritional Supplements Are Cost Effective, Research Finds

11149562_10153183683504909_4994868866564417512_n

If you’ve been a long-standing BarleyLife drinker, it might be a good time to pat yourself on the back.  Sure, drinking BarrleyLife has improved your nutrition, and that in turn, has likely enhanced your overall health, but it looks like all those green smoothies may have saved you some money as well. A study published in Clinical Nutrition took a look at the cost-effectiveness of nutritional supplements used in care facilities and nursing homes, and what they discovered was that taking non-disease specific nutritional supplements may save money by offsetting healthcare costs.

The researchers sifted through a huge body of evidence that spanned nineteen publications and dozens of articles on the cost and cost-effectiveness of supplement usage in care facilities.  When nutritional supplements were used for a period of  less than three months, there was a 5% reduction in healthcare costs. When supplements were used for longer than three months, the savings rose to 9.2%. The research also showed that supplements improved quality of life, lowered the rates of infections, falls, functional limitations and minor post-operative complications.

From the study:

Overall, the reviewed studies, mostly based on retrospective cost analyses, indicate that ONS (oral nutritional supplements) use in the community produce an overall cost advantage or near neutral balance, often in association with clinically relevant outcomes, suggesting cost effectiveness. There is a need for prospective studies designed to examine primary economic outcomes.

So invest in your health with AIM’s excellent line of nutritional supplements! You’ll be glad that you did.
