AIM Says No to GMO

Untitled

After several years of GMO testing, AIM is pleased to confirm that all of its whole-food concentrates and natural health products have been certified as Non-GMO.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are plants or animals designed with gene-splicing techniques—biotechnological science that has turned Dr. Frankenstein-like madness into reality.These unnatural creations should not be a part of your dietary intake. According to the David Suzuki Foundation, “the safety of GMO foods is unproven and a growing body of research connects these foods with health concerns and environmental damage.” Saying no to GMO is truly the healthy way to go.AIM also tested all of its products to determine gluten-free and vegan status.

Blue Diamond Director Promotion

dp

Perry and Marilyn Lehman of Topeka, Indiana, were promoted to Blue Diamond Directors in July 2014. Perry works as a cabinet maker for Starcraft RV. Marilyn has a home-based sewing business and makes clothing that is shipped worldwide.Their son, Erik, turned fifteen in June and works various jobs. In their spare time,they travel a lot and enjoydoing things together as a family.

They both work full time, and Perry says that Marilyn actually works
overtime. In the midst of all their work, they still find room to contact The AIM Companies™, send out information, and place and fill orders. People often drop by their home to pick up products or to have their questions answered. The Lehman’s follow up by telephoning and then mailing information packets about AIM products to people all over the United States. They say the most effective thing they have done to grow their AIM business is to simply share their own story of wellness with people and then listen to the health concerns of those people. Additionally, the Lehman’s hold an annual Indiana AIM Conference that includes a women’s health meeting.

They tell new Members to give the AIM products a try for at least three months, no less and to not give up if they have a bad day. If somebody shares their health concerns with them, they talk about what that person is going through and may suggest adjustments in how they are taking the product or how much they are using. Because of their own improved health, they are often approached by folks who want to know what they are doing differently. They share with them what they have done and help those people improve their health and quality of life. They are able to share one-onone with the people that come by their home and help them to choose the AIM products that work best for their particular health concern.

The Lehman’s say that being with The AIM Companies has been amazing for their family
in terms of health. For five years, they have taken AIM BarleyLife® Xtra and unflavored AIM Herbal Fiberblend®. With the addition of the blender bottle, the products mix easily and they are a great way to start their day. Their family of friends has grown, and they’ve been able to build relationships with people outside of their area all over the count. And they are not sick anymore!

“The guidance and help that we get from the AIM corporate office when we need to ask questions or need information has really been a blessing in our lives. We’ve gotten to know people that we never would have met,” they said. “We’ve been blessed to personally meet and know the owners Dennis and Kay Itami and Ron and Opal Wright as well as many individuals on the AIM staff.

“It’s been totally amazing how God has blessed us since we have started on the AIM products. People come to us wanting help and we have been able to help them.”

AIM Membership Agreement Changes to Enhance Your Business Opportunities

Red RushNew changes to the Membership Agreement can mean a big boost in business for you!
According to the new rules, AIM products can now be sold to and through privately owned
retail establishments. That means, you can now sell AIM products to and through CrossFit gyms, salons, health food stores, or health facilities as long the establishment isn’t a mass merchandiser, the establishment advertises the product for the suggested retail price, and the principal owner signs up for Membership.

Additionally, the employees of the retailers are allowed to sell the products as a proxy for the Principal Owner/Member. Members can now become distributors for their local, independent businesses and sell through their own small businesses, increasing their commission and earning potentials exponentially.

Furthermore, rules regarding the dissolution of Joint Memberships have been added to the Member Agreement. See the AIM website for further details.

A Holistic Approach to the Healthy Cell Concept

Tam

AIM Director Nancy Tam’s Water-Wise Garden won the 2014 National
Environmental Achievement Award and the 2013 Keep Texas Beautiful Award.
Whether she’s tending garden or nurturing her body with AIM BarleyLife®, Nancy keeps the Healthy Cell Concept™ in mind.

“I work for a water district. We have a role in educating the public and city officials about water conservation. Ten years ago due to my passion for gardening, I had the opportunity to help my company by installing the landscape around a new facility. In order to save money and for educational purposes, I redesigned the landscape with water conservation in mind, so I used more drought-resistant and native plants. I created three different styles of garden: Japanese, hill country, and English. If I wanted people to copy my Water-Wise Gardens, I had to make them attractive and easy. So I made a datasheet that was like a recipe.

“The water-wise garden is totally organic, which makes sense. There is no need to use harmful chemicals. When you’re handling pesticides and herbicides, you can inhale the poison. If you touch them without gloves, they are absorbed into your skin and can negatively impact your body.

“Harmful chemicals in the garden are as dangerous as the harmful chemicals one can absorb through food. That’s why we go organic. Using organic products means less disease and fewer allergies. We should apply the Healthy Cell Concept to our environment in addition to our bodies.

“Back in ‘89, I got really sick with allergies from pollen and food. I had anemia, hives, migraines, and total fatigue all the time. I went for medical help. I’m a good patient. I did what they told me, but none of them put a focus on nutrition. A friend of mine asked me to see Loretta Shu (Chairman’s Club Director). I almost didn’t. I was so tired. When I met her, there was no sales presentation, just a nice friendly get-together. She told me about BarleyLife. That was a turning point for me.

“Gradually, I began taking BarleyLife on a daily basis. Every time I had the desire to drink a soda or something else unhealthy, I drank BarleyLife instead. I didn’t expect a miracle to happen, but it did. In four to five weeks, my energy levels were better. It was both so sudden and so gradual that it took me awhile to realize that the BarleyLife was making a difference. One day I noticed that I hadn’t used my extra-strength aspirin in threeweeks. I used to eat them like candies because my head hurt so much, but now all my symptoms were gone.

“After I regained my own health, I learned about the Healthy Cell Concept and other AIM products. AIM is so good about teaching health. In 2000, my fifteen-year-old son was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He went blind for six months. I was able to encourage him to incorporate the Healthy Cell Concept into his life and guided him to seek alternative health options whenever possible. He regained some of his eyesight, and his tumor went away. He finished high school and college and now owns his own business. The Healthy Cell Concept has impacted my family personally. Without BarleyLife, I wouldn’t have been able to do all things that I do with my career. Good health is really the biggest wealth because you can’t enjoy a good laugh without it.”

 

New Study on Women: Healthy Lifestyle Cuts Stroke Risk by More than Half

IMG_4059

A new study put out by the American Academy of Neurology found that women can cut their risk of stroke by 54% by choosing to living a healthy lifestyle. The five elements of a healthy lifestyle that this study accounted for were not smoking, moderate drinking (3 to 9 drinks a week), healthy diet (top 50% of recommended food score), physically active (vigorous exercise at least one hour a week and walking or biking 40 minutes a day) and healthy weight (BMI under 25). Women who maintained all positive factors had a 54% lower risk of stroke compared to women who had zero healthy factors.

The study followed 31,696 Swedish women who had an average age of sixty for ten years. The majority of women had two or three healthy factors going for them. There were 1,535 who had none, and only 589 women who had all. Risk of stroke decreased with the addition of each healthy lifestyle choice, and a healthier diet was linked to a 13% decrease in cerebral infarction, the most common type of stroke. Unfortunately, no link was found between healthy lifestyle and hemorrhagic stroke.

BBB Simplicity

Joyce

For AIM Director Joyce Hsieh, earning a $700 Business Builder Bonus (BBB) in June was a triple payoff: an AIM convention, loyal friends, and the sizable bonus from AIM. “Getting the BBB money was very, very simple,” she stated. “All of these new Members I signed up are my friends.” Like any good story, there is an interesting beginning.

Over twenty years ago, Joyce joined AIM and began using products such as the AIM Garden Trio®, AIM Herbal Fiberblend®, and AIM Proancynol®. “I am a breast cancer survivor,” she revealed. “I have taken AIM products since 1993, when I was having chemotherapy. I still continue to take them.”

Today, Joyce sets a fine example of health at the age of seventy-six, being very active with choir practice, Bible studies, and prayer meetings. “My friends tell me I look so energetic,” she said. “I want them to be healthy, so I tell them to take AIM BarleyLife®.”

Over the years, Joyce has introduced AIM to her many friends, directly selling products
to them at the wholesale price without charging shipping costs. Sometimes she just gave products to friends who needed them.

Joyce had directional assistance on her own journey to good health. “Along with my helpful sponsor, Carol Ko (Star Sapphire Director), Tiffany Kuo and Bianca Fan (AIM Chinese Services) introduced me to many AIM products,” she acknowledged.

Joyce hadn’t attended an AIM convention since 2010. Tiffany told her that she had $150 in convention cash and was able to transfer an additional $150 from another Member. Joyce was able to reconnect with her AIM family in Savannah, Georgia, sharing a room with Carol. Given that she had such a fine time in Georgia, Joyce wondered how she could afford to go to the next conference. Tiffany suggested that she use the Business Builder Bonus to earn some money.

“I told all my friends, ‘Before I helped you, now you help me’ ,” Joyce related with a giggle. “I said, ‘Next year I want to attend convention, and I need new Member sign-ups to earn cash, so I don’t help you anymore; you have to sign up.’ ” And her friends did. Having earned $700 with the BBB, Joyce is already looking forward to the 2015 AIM Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.

CalciAIM, a Healthy Foundation for Your Body

CalciAIM

Postmenopausal women, the lactose intolerant, vegetarians, people who consume large amounts of alcohol, caffeine, and/or soda, folks with Crohn’s disease or celiac disease, people who don’t get enough sun, those who live in nursing homes, IBS sufferers, the obese, the very dark-skinned, and most people. It may seem like a random list of qualities, but everyone mentioned has something in common. They are all at risk of being either calcium or vitamin D deficient. The body relies on vitamin D to produce a hormone called calcitrol to absorb calcium. That means if you’re deficient in vitamin D there is a good chance that you’re lacking calcium, too. And if you don’t have enough calcium, it may be because you don’t get enough vitamin D.

The good news is that you can get both of these essential nutrients in every scoop of CalciAIM, a great-tasting citrus drink that provides you with everything that you need for strong bones and a healthy body.

Calcium
Apart from skeletal health, optimal calcium levels are important for vascular contraction, vasodilation, muscle function, nerve transmissions, intracellular signaling, and hormonal secretion. A full-grown adult needs at least 1,000 mg of calcium a day. Postmenopausal
women and elderly men need 1,200 mg or more. CalciAIM provides 386 mg of calcium per
serving, and unlike milk, CalciAIM doesn’t contain estrogen, saturated fat, or lactose. It’s also a vegan source of this essential nutrient.

Vitamin D
Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and a healthy heart. According to Medscape.com, most people are deficient in vitamin D. Deficiency in this vitamin has been linked to weight gain and depression as well as breast, prostate and colon cancer. CalciAIM has 70 percent of your daily vitamin D, so there’s no need to go without any longer.

Magnesium
CalciAIM also contains significant amounts of other bone-building vitamins and minerals. It has 30 percent of your daily magnesium. Studies have linked magnesium to increased bone density and the ability to retain calcium. Furthermore, magnesium deficiency (as well as calcium deficiency) is linked to osteoporosis.

Vitamin C, Zinc, Copper
CalCiAIM contains 54 percent of your daily vitamin C needs for improved immune system health and assistance in the absorption of calcium required for the synthesis of bone and connective tissue. Last but not least, copper (24 percent) and zinc (12 percent) both help stop bone loss.

AIM Academy: Higher Education for Anyone

 

Dot savage

“I was trained many years ago as a home economics teacher and home economist and did get a good foundation. However, the holistic side of nutrition is so different from the mainstream. In the years since, I have studied holistic nutrition through books, DVDs, classes, and seminars for my own health and my family’s. This was how I stumbled upon the AIM products through a friend in the early 1990’s and have taken them myself since that time.

In recent years, I have more time to share them with others and hope to increase their use of these wonderful products. I had been aware of the AIM Academy for many months, but felt I already knew enough so somewhat ignored it. However, one of my goals for the New Year became to take these courses to become a Living Well coach. I found the AIM Academy to be very informative on nutrition and how the synergy of nutrients in plants is superior to the chemical combinations in some supplements. The marketing side is also very informative as that is my weak link in all of this. So I hope what I learned in this area will help me to use my nutritional knowledge in a practical way. That’s where it really counts as far as helping others!”

Frame Essentials Protection

Frame Essentials

The aging process is less than kind when we do not give our bodies the nutrients required to mature in good health. This is true at any age. As a prime example, arthritis—joint inflammation—is on the rise, even in the young. There are many reasons for this, including poor diet, lack of physical activity, and being overweight, all of which cause inflammation.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “By 2030, an estimated 67 million Americans, ages 18 years or older, are projected to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis.” The present numbers are already staggering with over 50 million adults having some form of this debilitating condition.

Limited movement and pain are often signs of damaged, injured, or inflamed cartilage. If you have such symptoms, AIM Frame Essentials® delivers support in the form of glucosamine (hydrochloride and sulphate)—a building block of cartilage. Frame Essentials also contains MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane), a sulfur compound that helps strengthen joint tissues, and boswellia extract—an anti-inflammatory that may help prevent the loss of cartilage. Together, the ingredients of Frame Essentials work effectively to help put you back on a lifelong path of wellness.

Anton Zafir: Good Choices in and Outside the Ring

image001

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!”

–Anton ‘The Professor’ Zafir
