Inoperable Heart Condition improved by AIM Products
In 1997, my sister had a heart-attack, triple by-pass. While praying and fasting for her, God told me to have my heart examined. I relentlessly obeyed God (because I had no symptoms). I ended up having emergency quadruple bypass. Two years later a second heart catheterization showed that 3 out of the 4 bypasses had collapsed. They also diagnosed several other “inoperable” heart conditions, placed my name on a heart transplant list and then sent me home to die.
Seeking hope and answers, I visited four more doctors who all said the same thing, except for one. A Christian doctor told me that my faith in God, a lifestyle change and good nutrition would slowly reverse the problems.
I got started on the AIM Cardio-Vascular Nutritional Plan, the Mediterranean Diet, and an exercise plan, but was still taking too many medications for my conditions. My first Garden Trio drink felt like I had stuck my finger in an electrical socket as the nutrients flooded my cells and body. I immediately began to feel stronger, more energetic, my skin color improved and felt more alive then ever. Other people even noticed and asked me if I had gotten a heart transplant. With my strong faith in God and these wonderful nutrients, I slowly weaned myself off the medications because truly I was more afraid of them than the disease.
Today, I am medication free, look and feel better than ever. I am so thankful to God for placing the AIM products in my pathway, restoring and prospering my health. After reviewing the results of my physical exam, my Cardiologist told me that if she didn’t know my medical history she would say that I no longer had heart disease. The only negative thing she told me was, “I think you’re crazy for not taking the medication”. The doctor also said that I would have to continue my nutritional and exercise plan, lifestyle change along with my faith in God, to continue to have quality of life. AIM products have been helping people live better since 1982. With an outstanding line of products ideally suited to improve health and wellness, AIM has impacted Members and customers from around the globe.
J.R. Celski Wins two Bronze Medals at Olympics
J.R.’s story — one of determination, perseverance, and hope — made the 19-year-old’s efforts all the more impressive and earned him respect and notoriety on Olympics telecasts and in media coverage. His Olympic success was magnified due to his young age and tough circumstances, and he ended the three-week competition as the heir apparent to the U.S. speedskating throne, held by teammate Apolo Anton Ohno.
J.R.’s continued health and success both on and off the ice include J.R.’s mix of AIM products: AIM LeafGreens, AIM Garden Trio, AIMega, AIM Peak Endurance, CalciAIM, AIM Cellsparc 360, AIM Proanycnol 2000, AIM PrepZymes, and AIM Herbal Fiberblend caps.
In the Olympics’ first weekend, J.R. took to the ice in the 1,500-meter race — one of the premier events at the Winter Games and J.R.’s strongest distance. He made it through the qualification rounds and into the final where he skated alongside Ohno and a trio of talented South Korean skaters. Ohno captured the silver and J.R. a bronze medal.
J.R. earned his second medal of the Games with a clutch performance in the 5,000-meter team relay. He and the three other American skaters — including Ohno — found themselves in fourth place late in the race, trailing Canada, South Korea, and China. On the penultimate leg of the relay, J.R. pushed the U.S. team onto the medal stand — literally — when he passed off to Ohno, shoving his teammate ahead of the third-place Chinese skater. Ohno maintained third place for the final two laps of the race.
J.R.’s rise to the top of the speedskating world is remarkable, considering that he was still skating at the junior level only a year ago. In February 2009, J.R. made his first mark on the senior speedskating circuit by winning the 1,500-meter gold medal at World Cup VI in Dresden, Germany. The win was J.R.’s first at the world senior level, and it was the highlight of a 2008-2009 speedskating season that saw him excel at both the junior and senior levels, competing in the maximum number of races and logging over 600,000 air miles to meets across the world.
His storybook season continued at the U.S. Speedskating Olympic Trials in Marquette, Michigan, in September. At the trials, J.R. raced to the top of the overall points standings with a first place finish in the 1,500-meter event and strong showings in preliminary heats and competitions.
On the last day of the four-day competition, J.R. had his trials cut short after a hard crash into the wall during the semifinals of the 500-meter race. As he crashed, J.R.’s right skate sliced across his left leg, just above the knee, opening a large, six-inch cut that required surgery to close and repair. Despite the injury, J.R. finished second in the overall standings thanks to his superb performance in his prior events. He had earned his place on the U.S. Olympic team, yet his availability for the Olympics was very much up in the air due to his leg injury.
Rushed straight to the hospital after his fall, J.R. underwent successful surgery to close the wound, marking the first step on a long road back to the ice. Overseeing his recovery was former Olympian and five-time speedskating gold medalist Dr. Eric Heiden who viewed the injury as merely a speed bump on the road to the Olympics. J.R. spent time recuperating in Salt Lake City before transferring to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The AIM Companies, located in Nampa, Idaho, began sponsoring J.R. in 2002; AIM’s nutritional products were a key part to J.R.’s training and nutrition regimen. Over the past seven years, the Celski’s have credited AIM nutritional products with J.R.’s continued health and success both on and off the ice. Included in J.R.’s mix of products are AIM LeafGreens, AIM Garden Trio, AIMega, AIM Peak Endurance, CalciAIM, AIM Cellsparc 360, AIM Proanycnol 2000, AIM PrepZymes, and AIM Herbal Fiberblend caps.
Nutrition has been a key part to J.R.’s skating career, so it only made sense that it would be a key part to his recovery from injury. Immediately into the healing process, J.R. boosted his daily dosages of AIM nutritional products. The added nutrition along with expert care and a strong will and determination saw J.R. tear through rehab faster than anyone had expected.
Only one month following the surgery, J.R. was able to bend his leg at a 90-degree angle. Doctors typically expect this benchmark to occur six weeks post-surgery. He bent the knee to 115 degrees soon after, and he continued to improve right up to the Olympic Games.
Congratulations to J.R. He is a shining example of what you can achieve with perseverance, hard work, and good nutrition.
Cancer Reversed after taking AIM’s Barley grass
by Janet Pauly, R.N.
I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer of the lymph system on July 31, 1980 during surgery. Five days after surgery, I was sent to M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston. This is the University of Texas cancer treatment center and is the largest of its kind in the world. There I was told that not only was my cancer widespread, but that it was also incurable.
After four years of treatment that included investigational drugs, my doctor told me that my disease was out of control and he had nothing more to offer me. I was sent home without another appointment, but with his assurance that he would keep looking for something to help me.
All of this time, my family, my friends, my church and I had been praying for help for me. But, now I had to face the fact that I might become another cancer fatality along with thousands of others. But, God wasn’t finished with me yet. Shortly after this, I received a letter from a friend of mine in California who is also a nurse. Included in her letter was a sandwich bag that contained some green powder, a brochure and an audiotape. My friend said that she didn’t know if she believed in this stuff or not, but that she was taking it and feeling good. Later, she told me that she felt compelled to send the green powder to me.
My orientation to medicine was conventional. I never took any kind of supplement and never went to health food stores. Green powder was definitely not something that interested me. I probably wouldn’t have tried it if the Lord hadn’t spoken to me and told me to listen to the tape that my friend had sent….but that’s another story. On the tape, I heard a woman tell about having breast cancer and what this green powder had done for her. Most stories that sound too good to be true are exactly that! I thought that this green powder must be some kind of quackery and fraud. Although, I wondered why the lady who was speaking would tell a story like this. I sent off for the green powder and began taking it only because I didn’t have anything else to do for myself.
My largest tumor was under my left arm and was the size of a tennis ball. Four days after I started taking the green powder, this tumor began to soften and was my first tumor to go completely away. Within a few months all of my tumors were gone.
The Lord could have sent this green powder sooner, but He knew that as long as the doctors had anything to offer me, I never would have tried it. I was taught in nursing school that we get all of the nutrients that we need in well-balanced meals. Our family ate healthy: plenty of veggies, salads, legumes and whole grains. I should have been getting everything that my body needed to stay healthy. The fact that my tumor began to soften after only four days on the green powder told me that there was something in the green powder, perhaps yet unidentified, that my immune system needed to begin to function effectively in my behalf. I believe that whatever this is may be difficult or impossible to get in our day-to-day diets for whatever reason.
Bone marrow biopsy showed that I had suffered bone marrow depression due to all of the radiation I’d been given, and I was told this was permanent damage. All of my blood components were low. After being on the green powder for four months, I went back to the hospital and had a blood test . I was normal for the first time in four years. Subsequent bone marrow biopsy showed healthy bone marrow. My doctor and I both attributed my remission from cancer and my bone marrow recovery to the green powder. Today I take AIM BarleyLife, which I consider to be the best green juice powder on the market. I continue to thank God every day for giving me twenty-five years of life after my cancer diagnosis.
Runner hurt knees and becomes Olympic Walker, with help of AIM Products
Debbi Lawrence is passionate about three things in her life. There’s her husband, Don, of course. There are her eight bunnies that have their own special room in the Lawrence’s home just a mile from Lake Michigan on the north side of Kenosha, Wisconsin. And there’s her dream. A dream most people her age would have wrapped in brightly colored memories and put in the attic long ago.
At the age of 40, when most world-class athletes would have set aside their Olympic aspirations, Debbi is the third-ranked female race walker in the United States, and has been to three Olympics.
Never mind that she’ll be racing against athletes who are almost half her age. “I’m still competitive,” she points out. “I can still hold my own. And I’m taking the steps I need to reach my goal.”
“You know how they say you have to walk before you run? Well, I was just the opposite. I ran in high school. My senior year, I was fourth in the state in the mile, and that same year, set the girls’ mile record at my high school with a 5:08. That mark stood for 10 years.”
“When I graduated, I wanted to stay in Kenosha, so I went to Gateway Technical College. They didn’t even have a women’s track team, so I ran with the men’s team.”
“All that pounding my legs were taking running was taking its toll. My knees started falling apart. I knew I was going to have to quit running. How would I fill the void? By that time, I’d done two things that would answer the question. I transferred to the University of Wisconsin, Parkside, which is also in Kenosha, and most importantly, I met Don. He was a runner who’d become a walker, and I thought he was so cute with that funny little stride he had to do. Anyway, he and my coach convinced me to try competitive walking.”
Debbi’s resume reads like that of your normal everyday elite world-class athlete:
U.S. Race Walking Indoor Champion 1992, ’93, ’94, and ’97; among the top three finishers at the Olympic Trials in 2000; currently ranked third in the United States at 20 kilometers; placed fifth in the 1998 Goodwill Games in New York City, and so on and so forth.
Of course, what makes this level of performance even more remarkable is the age at which she’s doing it, a fact she tries to play down. “I’m lucky,” she says. “Part of the reason I can still compete is the sport I’m in. Walking is not running. Or swimming. Or playing basketball. You can stay competitive in walking long after you’ve passed your prime. Besides, if Michael Jordan can even think about playing professional basketball at his age, I can walk competitively at mine.”
Like most world-class athletes, Debbi is associated with several sponsors, but her relationship with The AIM Companies™ is a very special one. AIM products form the nutritional cornerstone of Debbi’s training regimen. “I’ve concentrated on natural products because they’re so important to my success,” she says. “Imagine someone who walks 12½ miles as fast as they can not having the right shoes. Chances are they wouldn’t last half the race. The same is true for the right nutrition.”
“You can’t just fill a blender with whatever’s in season,” Debbi says. “You have to be very careful about what you eat, and you have to take supplements to help fill in the gaps. Of course, supplements are wise for everyone, whether you’re a vegetarian or not. But athletes, especially world-class, competitive athletes, have to be careful about what supplements they take. The wrong ones can do as much, if not more, harm as not taking any at all.”
Her training diet is strictly balanced to 30 percent protein, 30 percent fat, and 40 percent carbohydrates. When her trainer first proposed it, the fat requirement startled her. “30 percent is a lot of fat,” she thought. “I was afraid I wouldn’t be walking around the track, I’ll be waddling around it.” But, as her coach pointed out, the fat content gives her the endurance to walk every one of those 12 miles as fast as she can.
A typical daily menu around the Lawrence household includes oatmeal, protein powder, a bagel, olive oil, soy milk, honey, V-8 juice, and AIM BarleyLife™, AIM Just Carrots®, AIM RediBeets®, AIM PrepZymes®, AIM Proancynol® 2000, AIM Bear Paw Garlic®, AIM Herbal Fiberblend®, and the most recent addition, AIM Frame Essentials™.
“Okay, I’m sorry if this sounds like a commercial,” she says, “but AIM’s products are great. Take AIM BarleyLife™. It helps balance my system before and after I work out.”
“Exercise creates acids in the body, and BarleyLife™ neutralizes those acids. The AIM RediBeets® and AIM Just Carrots® help me maintain the healthy iron-rich blood I need. And the other AIM concentrates promote overall joint, muscle, and cell health. The overall benefit has been a huge boost to my immune system and muscle recovery.”
It must be working. At the 2001 World Track and Field Championships in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in August, Debbi was the highest American finisher in the 20-km walk, beating a number of women who have yet to see their 30th birthday, to say nothing of their 40th.
“People are always saying you’ve got to be young to be vibrant,” she says. “You have to be young to be competitive. I don’t buy that. I’ve found my fountain of youth, and I don’t have to quit competing just because everybody says so.”
“You have to throw out your belief system,” she continues, the passion in her voice growing. “I don’t care if you’re racing around the track or after the kids. Change your diet, exercise, take the right supplements, and you’ll feel better.”
And if there’s anybody who knows about keeping up with a bunch of kids, it’s Debbi Lawrence.
Anemia reversed with AIM’s Barleygrass, now Teaching and Reaching out to Others
By Dr. Yu-Shiaw Chen, AIM Chairman’s Club Member
Stony Brook, NY—From her earliest days as a child in Taiwan, Dr. Yu-Shiaw Chen recalls helping her mother take care of her grandparents and younger siblings. By the age of five, she was already demonstrating entrepreneurial and leadership skills by tutoring her younger sisters, and by eight, she was cooking for the entire family.
Yu-Shiaw’s strong sense of responsibility and devotion to others are traits that have followed her throughout life-eventually leading her to the prestigious rank of Chairman’s Club at AIM.
Bringing honor to her family
A good student, Yu-Shiaw attended a very highly ranked all-girls high school in Taipei. She brought honor and pride to her family when she eventually went on to earn a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in botany from the National Taiwan University.
After graduation, she joined the ranks of her alma mater as a faculty member and taught plant physiology for five years, while co-authoring a laboratory manual for her students to use.
But Yu-Shiaw’s mother had always encouraged her daughter to go abroad, expand her horizons, and pursue advanced study. Yu-Shiaw dreamed of coming to the United States. Then, one day, just as she was making these plans, her mother died in a tragic traffic accident.
Determined to fulfill her responsibility and bring further honor to her family, Yu-Shiaw remained in Taiwan for two more years, putting her own dreams on hold, while she continued to take care of her family.
Early dreams fulfilled
Finally, in 1976, Yu-Shiaw was offered a scholarship to attend the Mount Sinai School of Medicine at the City University of New York. It was the opportunity of her dreams! Now married with a child of her own, Yu-Shiaw eagerly accepted the position and prepared for the move to New York, where she eventually earned her Ph.D. in biochemistry.
Her work as a biomedical research scientist was fulfilling. During these years, Dr. Chen authored no less than 19 papers that were published in scientific journals, and worked at two prestigious biotechnology companies-all the while, adjusting to American life as a working wife and mother, and maintaining close contact with her family and culture in Taiwan.
Her ‘scientific’ discovery
In those early days as a research scientist, Dr. Chen began to hear more and more about a green barley product. At first, her sister in Taiwan mentioned the product, and she asked Dr. Chen to find this American product and send it to her. She located several jars of the ‘funny-looking green barley powder’ and sent it off to her sister in Taiwan.
Then, one day while working in the research laboratory, Dr. Chen’s boss came into the lab with a jar of green barley. He handed the jar to Dr. Chen and asked her to analyze its contents. After extracting the active ingredients of the green powder, Dr. Chen was simply amazed by the results.
“The results showed very strong antioxidant activity,” said Dr. Chen. “I was very excited and eager to show my boss the results.”
Coincidentally, Dr. Chen began to hear personal testimonies of others that used the product. Even her sister said to her, “You keep sending this green barley product to us, and now, you must try it for yourself!”
Her first steps
At that time, Dr. Chen was experiencing some difficulties with anemia. And it’s no wonder-Dr. Chen was extremely busy with raising a family, working full-time, authoring research papers, and keeping close ties to her family in Taiwan-all the while adapting to life in America.
When Dr. Chen read about the high iron content of green barley, she began taking it immediately, and elected to drop her daily iron pill. Three months later, at her doctor’s visit, her physician was in for quite a shock! Her hemoglobin count was significantly improved. She did not need to return to the doctor.
Looking at the great results, Dr. Chen began to ponder the contribution she was making in life. She recalls thinking: “I could spend the rest of my life conducting superb lab experiments and writing scientific papers, but what kind of contribution am I really making to mankind? Am I really helping anybody?”
Vegetarian lunches…and more!
With this realization, Dr. Chen quickly expanded her educational horizons in the area of nutrition, earning her certificate in nutrition from American Health Science University. She began to focus on diet and lifestyle changes along with the AIM products.
Nutritional counseling and coaching has become a highlight in Dr. Chen’s outreach. She also teaches Chinese fragrance exercises where she has an opportunity to meet with others who are interested in new approaches toward improved health.
Almost everyone, with whom she comes into contact, receives an invitation to one of her ‘famous’ vegetarian lunches. At these monthly lunch meetings that she hosts in her home, Dr. Chen begins by serving a refreshing drink of AIM BarleyLife® or the AIM Garden Trio®. Not only does this capture everyone’s attention, but it has become the perfect way to get everyone talking about good nutrition. “The results have been phenomenal,” claims Dr. Chen.
Ever the teacher, Dr. Chen has taught AIM Teleclasses™ and has also conducted nutrition classes for her local community school district. One of her most popular classes is a 10-week weight loss course.
But teaching and counseling is not enough for Dr. Chen. She also travels widely to do public speaking about lifestyle and nutrition. Even her sisters in Taiwan participate by arranging public speaking engagements for her when she visits her native homeland.
Wherever she goes, Dr. Chen attributes her success to others who are eager to learn more about nutrition-and about the AIM products. “AIM has provided some very important tools, from the excellent products, to the AIM Teleclasses™, to the methods for building downline. I couldn’t have done it without the AIM company,” she notes.
Seeking hope and answers, I visited four more doctors who all said the same thing, except for one. A Christian doctor told me that my faith in God, a lifestyle change and good nutrition would slowly reverse the problems. I got started on the AIM Cardio-Vascular Nutritional Plan, the Mediterranean Diet, and an exercise plan, but was still taking too many medications for my conditions.
My first Garden Trio drink felt like I had stuck my finger in an electrical socket as the nutrients flooded my cells and body. I immediately began to feel stronger, more energetic, my skin color improved and felt more alive then ever. Other people even noticed and asked me if I had gotten a heart transplant. With my strong faith in God and these wonderful nutrients, I slowly weaned myself off the medications because truly I was more afraid of them than the disease.
Today, I am medication free, look and feel better than ever. I am so thankful to God for placing the AIM products in my pathway, restoring and prospering my health. After reviewing the results of my physical exam, my Cardiologist told me that if she didn’t know my medical history she would say that I no longer had heart disease. The only negative thing she told me was, “I think you’re crazy for not taking the medication”. The doctor also said that I would have to continue my nutritional and exercise plan, lifestyle change along with my faith in God, to continue to have quality of life.
AIM products have been helping people live better since 1982. With an outstanding line of products ideally suited to improve health and wellness, AIM has impacted Members and customers from around the globe.
Pet Stories Using AIM Products
AIM BarleyLife has helped our family in so many ways, that we have given it to our animals and our neighbor’s animals with great success. Pets become part of the family, so why not make sure they have good nutrition too so they can have good health, shiny and soft coat, and pleasant smelling breath.
14 Year Old Dog Plays Fetch Again
We have 2 labrador dogs. One is 4 years old and the other is 14 years old. The older dog, Sam, has never wanted to play with the younger dog. She retired 3 years ago from a working retreiver and has been content to sleeping all of the time. We started giving her 1 teaspoon of BarleyLife with her food and soon she started jumping, playing with the younger lab, and even playing fetch with a ball again. Keep in mind that in “dog years” Sam is 98 years old! She also has a growth under her ear that is the size of a baseball and it has gotten smaller since we started giving her the BarleyLife. We will be honest, once she starts feeling good, we forget to give her BarleyLife, and she goes downhill fast. Two different times we thought her back legs were paralized because she could not move them and drug them behind her across the floor. We had a feeling that the vet would put her to sleep so we gave her large doses of BarleyLife several times and by the end of the day, she was walking again. As Sam has gotten older, her breath has started to stink. The BarleyLife helps her breath to smell better.
Stray Kitten that was Sick
Several years ago, we found 2 stray kittens but one was very sick and looked like it was going to die. It was so sick, we would not even touch it, and only held it wraped in a towel. We started giving it a mixture of water and BarleyLife in a syringe 3 times a day. In a week it was getting around better and playing like a normal kitten. In a month it was the dominant kitten.
Dog with Arthritis
When we lived in Weimar, TX, one of our neighbors had a dog that had arthritis so bad that it could hardly walk. I tried to tell her about the benefits of AIM Barley grass but she was not interested. She went out of town and asked me to feed her dog while she was gone. I fed her dog but I also happened to sprinkle some Barley powder (mixed with water) on the dog’s food. In a week our neighbors returned home and their dog was no longer a prisoner to his front porch due to the arthritis but ran out to the street to meet them and actually jumped up in their truck to greet them! Our neighbor immediately ran to our house and demanded to know what we had done to her dog and I explained about the barley powder. She went home that day with a jar of AIM’s barley and has been taking it ever since then.
Cat with Incurable Disease
Another neighbor in Tulia, TX had a cat that was sent home from the vet with an incurable disease. They were very sad for it had been a family pet and did not want to see it die. I gave them some AIM BarleyLife to give to their cat and in a few days it was feeling better and has lived a long and healthy life.
High School Athletic and Academic Competitions
I have been taking AIM’s Barley product several days a week since I was a baby. I later added Proancynol, FloraFood, and AIMega with the BarleyLife. I have been pretty healthy during my life. When I was 12 years old, I started competing in cross country (running 2 miles), basketball, and track so I started making sure I took the BarleyLife every day. If I missed a day I could actually tell that I did not have as much endurance in workouts and I was not as quick. My times for cross country and track were faster when I took BarleyLife. As a 9th grader in high school, the AIM products helped me to make the varsity team in cross country and track. I can also tell that I am more mentally alert in school and can listen and focus better when I take the AIM supplements.
Natalie makes all “A’s” in school, plays the flute in the school band and is the drum major this year in the marching band. She was a state finalist in a flute trio, state finalist in Ag competition, competes in UIL academic writing, and competes in the one act plays. She also enjoys water skiing, wake boarding, and snow skiing.
High School Sports and Asthma
When I was 2 years old I had my first asthma attack and had to stay in the hospital for a while. The asthma and eczema got worse and I did the traditional medicine, nebulizer, and inhalers. By the time I was in the 3rd grade I would have an asthma attack every 3 weeks and it would last for 3 days. The medicine helped to save my life but it was not working to help prevent the asthma attacks. At times the eczema on my arms would get so bad that it would bleed.
Since I started taking the BarleyLife everyday with Proancynol, FloraFood, and AIMega, I don’t have to take the medications any more. I don’t have asthma attacks anymore and my eczema went away. If I go about 10 days without the AIM products, the symptoms return.
Ty plays the drums and other percussions in his high school band and is successful in competing in football, basketball, track, and golf. He also enjoys snow skiing, water skiing, wake boarding, fishing, hunting, and archery.
Breast Cancer Survivor
How about this to grab your attention: Overcoming breast cancer without surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation.”Three years ago, I had breast cancer and overcame it with a living food diet,” Patti Warren says. “The main thing with the diet was juicing twice a day and using lots of fresh vegetables. Following the routine was a full-time job. Everything I ate had to be specially cooked.”
But it came with a price, says Patti. “Turns out we didn’t have a social life, and no one wanted to invite us to dinner. It became difficult.” The “we” includes her husband, Larry. They are AIM Directors from San Martin, California. They credit the AIM products for saving their social life.
Of course, the good news is overcoming breast cancer, thanks to the whole food diet. The bad news is that it cost the Warrens the freedom of a normal life.
“Then we got all this info about AIM, and we thought, ‘Could this be the answer?'” Patti said. “We have been into nutrition for 20 to 30 years, and we knew a lot about health. When we first ordered the AIM products, we tried them and did the research and attended AIMing Higher. We realized that we can have a life again.”
The demands of a lifestyle of constant juicing and food supervision were a detriment to the Warrens when it came to fitting in with others. Their diet saved them from health problems, but it cost them in other areas. Their initial introduction to living food diets came at a healthy lifestyle retreat. The Warrens spent three weeks in the program soon after Patti heard of her breast cancer diagnosis. The format of cleansing, nutrition, positive thinking, and exercise was designed to be continued for a three-month period after leaving the institute. By the end of the three months, Patti’s cancer was gone. And their way of life was drastically different.
Discovering the AIM products took away the Warrens’ need to handicap themselves with juicing and diet requirements. And for the Warrens, it even provided relief to a lifelong health problem for Larry.
“I have had joint and muscle problems my entire life back to a teenager,” Larry says. “I have every brace that you can get — back, arms, you name it and I have one. I have had some form of pain on an ongoing basis for all of my adult life until I had taken the AIM products for about six months.
“Now at 73, I can do all the pruning at our home. I climb to the top of the trees. I can outwork my son who is 20 to 30 years younger than I am, and I can do exercises that no one would even try. It has been really an incredible thing.”
The Warrens began their AIM journey after seeing a glowing review of AIM Herbal Fiberblend® in a newsletter. When they called to order, an AIM Call Center representative asked if they were interested in receiving the Member price on the product, a question that opened the door to so many other discoveries for the Warrens.
“We bought two canisters, and along came all this information,” Patti says. “Then we received a letter from (Chairman’s Club Director) Janet Pauly.”
Janet really got the Warrens going with their business, educating them on products and health and encouraging them to share the great news of AIM with others *mdash; an idea that Patti and Larry have fully embraced.
“When we were in Arizona,” Patti says, “a lady came up and said, ‘Some of us would like to know what you do.’ We did three Abundant Health classes, and we based them on Biblical healthy living. We went through a number of books and realized that we can’t hold this information to ourselves! We have to share it!
“At the classes, we talked about health in general, what nutrients the body needs to be healthy, the exercise, the food, what the body needs to get rid of. And AIM was a part of that. When we came to California, more people asked us what we do. They were so amazed that we took no medication.
“We’ve taught eight sessions in California and have four more to go, plus a wrap-up. We’ve kept the entire group the whole time. Some have started on the AIM products, and some are curious what’s going on.
“If you really want a solid AIM Member, you need to give them more information on health and healing so they understand what it can do to your body. It’s been a real exciting adventure for us, a journey.”
Less than a year after joining The AIM Companies™, the Warrens promoted to Director. They continue learning more about AIM products and introducing nutrition to others. Now that they have seen nutrition from an AIM perspective, they wouldn’t have it any other way.
“I have a family history of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart problems, and all that. I’m not going there. My mother died too early, and I’m not going there. That’s why we’ve been so interested in building up the immune system,” says Patti. “AIM for us was a missing piece, and when we got it, it just fit perfectly with our lifestyle.”
