Surgery, health issues and AIM products

When we have surgery or deal with health issues, we need to give our bodies extra nutrition to help with recovery. The following stories will show the results some have had with taking the AIM Garden Trio,which includes AIM redibeets, AIM just carrots and a barley grass powder called AIM barleylife. These products have antioxidants and many valuable nutrients such as folate, potassium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorous, and vitamins A and C. Barleylife has anti-inflammatory properties and supports the immune system. However since everyone responds differently not everyone may experience the exact same results.

AIM Garden Trio®

Good things come in threes!

“Three” can be a really good number. You know, the third time is a charm. For slapstick comedy, The Three Stooges. For old movies and songs, “Three Coins in a Fountain.” For Clint Eastwood fans, “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.”

For AIM Members, the good news in threes is the AIM Garden Trio®. This combination of AIM BarleyLife®, AIM Just Carrots®, and AIM RediBeets® is as good as it gets for supplying what is needed for whole body health and wellness. The trio of all natural, vegetable juice powder concentrates goes a long way to supplying the body with what it needs nutritionally.
And it works. The proof is in understanding the ingredients involved and the testimonies from people who are using the trio. The testimonies are especially powerful because they come from real people talking about real problems and a real solution.
From a Member in the Midwest: Three months after taking the AIM Garden Trio® in combination with selected other AIM products, she says her energy level has increased and she is sleeping better. While those results were thrilling to her, she reports she has also lost some weight, which wasn’t a primary goal, but much appreciated.

From Member Irene Black, Ontario, Canada: “In June 2005 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I chose not to take chemotherapy. In August I was introduced to a wonderful lady by the name of June Poswiata, an AIM Star Sapphire Director. June took time to explain the AIM products. … It is now December and I have been taking these products for five months. I feel wonderful. My weight has dropped to a very comfortable size. I would not think of starting my day without the AIM Garden Trio®.
“I am constantly supplied with important information including how and when to detoxify my body. I have come to rely completely on this updated information. AIM BarleyLife® is one product in which the name says it all and the AIM products are definitely helping me to improve my quality of life. Thank you AIM and especially you, June, for coming into my life.”

From Member Yoli Huron, Texas: In 1997 Yoli underwent heart bypass surgery. Two years later tests revealed three of the four bypasses had collapsed and doctors told Yoli there were other heart-related problems that only a transplant could resolve. Not wishing to have another operation without exploring other options, Yoli began a diet and exercise program but still could not escape using a number of medications. Then she started using The AIM Companies™ products, including the AIM Garden Trio®. Yoli reports: “I immediately began to feel stronger, energetic, and more alive. With a strong faith in God and these wonderful nutrients, I slowly weaned myself off the medications, because I was truly more afraid of the side effects than the disease. Today, I am medication free and look and feel better than I have in years!”

From a Member in China: He reports his wife had suffered from migraine headaches for 40 years and used a lot of medications to deal with them but they never helped. Since she started using AIM Garden Trio®, the headaches have disappeared.

From Members Barry and Michelle Patterson, missionaries: Their son, Elliott, is 3 and has a compromised immune system, suffering at different times from scarlet fever, hives, and the croup. Since he began mixing AIM products in his orange juice (called “super hero juice” by the boy), he has “withstood a stomach virus suffered by the entire family and also a horrific cold. It was amazing, this had never happened before.” The mother, Michelle, says taking AIM Garden Trio® has improved lesions on her fingers to the point where her hands “look 85 percent normal.” Prior to using the AIM products, she couldn’t play the piano and playing her guitar was “excruciating.” She says her skin is now “incredible,” whereas, prior to using the AIM Garden Trio®, “my hands were always wrapped in some sort of bandage and it was awful.”

So what is it about the AIM Garden Trio® that makes such a difference in the lives of so many? Understanding the benefits of carrots, beets and barley in concentrate form makes it clear why the AIM Garden Trio® is among the top sellers of the company and a product mix that continues to draw positive testimonies.

AIM Just Carrots®: Loaded with nutrients including vitamins A and C. The product is rich in potassium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorous, magnesium, and folate. Carrots are a great source of antioxidant compounds and are rich in vitamin A carotenes. Research has shown that carrots can assist in protecting against cardiovascular disease, cancer, and is helpful with good vision, particularly night vision.

According to the World’s Healthiest Foods (, the healthiest foods should contain a rating of excellent, very good, or good. These ratings are based on daily value and nutrient density. In the case of carrots, vitamin A is judged excellent, vitamin C, and potassium are rated very good, and manganese, molybdenum, phosphorous, magnesium, and folate content are considered good.

AIM RediBeets®: As is the case with AIM Just Carrots®, AIM RediBeets® is filled with valuable nutrients including potassium, vitamin C, magnesium, and iron. These powerful nutrient compounds play a role in helping to protect against heart disease, birth defects, and certain cancers.

Using the World’s Healthiest Foods rating system, the folate amount found in beets is excellent. Good ratings are given to vitamin C and iron.

AIM BarleyLife®: The AIM Companies™ flagship product is a nutritional wonderland. AIM’s green barley comes from only young plants, which maximizes the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, enzymes, chlorophyll, and phytochemicals found in the product. Research has shown that green barley has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, supports the immune system, and can play a role in lowering cholesterol. Good health depends on having healthy cells and AIM BarleyLife® contains nutrients important in restoring, building, or maintaining a solid foundation for good health.
The barley used in AIM products comes from the Barrhead, Alberta, Canada region. The conditions there are ideal for planting, growing, and harvesting the young barley plants. The nutrient-rich soil and lack of pollution are perfect for yielding the best young, green barley.
The AIM Companies™ is dedicated to the quality of the product distributed to Members. From the seed to the finished product purchased by Members, the barley is always in The AIM Companies™ control assuring Members the barley product is the best it can be.

Carrots, beets, barley. Each of them brings different valuable nutrients to the body but the three do have one important factor in common. That is, they all contain live enzymes. Enzymes are the catalysts for the body’s essential chemical reactions and are necessary for providing cellular energy, digesting food, absorbing nutrients, and rebuilding and replenishing all tissues, organs, and cells.

How vital are live enzymes to one’s health? Dr. Edward Howell has written two books on enzymes. He believes the human body is given only so many enzymes at birth and, therefore, it is up to each person to replenish his or her own supply of them. If we don’t, he says, we increase our risk of ill health.

The AIM Garden Trio® products may be taken together, individually, or with other AIM products. Follow the instructions on the canister of each product to obtain the maximum absorption of nutrients.

Nutrition and athletic performance

How can nutrition and athletic performance be related? Read the following article to see how AIM products have helped J.R. Celski as a speedskater with his nutritional needs.
These nutritional products helped him with his training and with recovery from the major injury he sustained during the Winter Olympic trials.

J.R. Celski finishes 2010 Vancouver Winter Games as two-time medalist

As one of short track speedskating’s rising stars, J.R. Celski skated to two bronze medals at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games in British Columbia, Canada. J.R. earned medals in the 1,500-meter race and the 5,000-meter team relay, showing no ill effects from a life-threatening injury only months earlier in the trials.

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 the 2010 Winter Games telecasts and in media coverage. His 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.

In the first weekend of the Games, 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 finals where he skated alongside Ohno and a trio of talented South Korean skaters.

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."

J.R. kept his cool at the back of the pack for the majority of the race, biding his time until an opportunity presented itself. His opportunity came on the last lap when he and Ohno took advantage of a spill by two of the Korean skaters. Ohno and J.R., skating in fourth and fifth positions, watched as South Korea’s Lee Ho-Suk crashed on the final turn, taking out Korean teammate Sung Si-Bak in the process. Ohno and J.R. skated past to capture silver and bronze, respectively.

Two weeks later, on speedskating’s final night, 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. also had a chance to medal in the 1,000-meter race, but he was disqualified in the semifinal round on a questionable call for interference with another skater.

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 2010 Winter Games 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. Winter Games team, yet his availability for the Games 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 Winter Games. 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 2010 Winter Games.

Congratulations to J.R. from everyone at The AIM Companies. He is a shining example of what you can achieve with perseverance, hard work, and good nutrition.
