Build a New,

AIM Detox & Rejuvenate Pack helps the body to detoxify  Before Detoxification It’s a New Year and a perfect time for healthy changes. Detoxifying your body after the holiday season is a great place to begin. A cleanse rejuvenates your body and can contribute to weight management. AIM offers a healthy way to cleanse with the Detox & Rejuvenate Program and cocoa-licious nutrition in the CoCoa Smoothie Pack to support the rebuilding of healthy cells.

Start Cleansing Exposure to a wide variety of toxins from your environment and food sources is a daily threat to good health. Being overloaded with toxins makes it difficult for your body to fully absorb and utilize nutrients. If you are trying to build a healthier body, removing toxins is the first step. The build-up of toxins overloads the cleansing functions of organs such as the liver, colon, and kidneys. The AIM Detox & Rejuvenate Program helps you to safely remove toxins while strengthening your body’s natural detoxification system.

After Detoxification  The Detox & Rejuvenate Pack contains AIM Herbal Fiberblend® (powder or capsules), AIM fit ’n fiber™, AIM Herbal Release®, and AIM FloraFood®. These four products provide a thorough body cleanse for effective detoxification. You achieve the maximum benefits during the program by hydrating your body with pure water and nourishing it with a primarily raw food diet for the duration of the cleanse. This nutritional factor is the opposite of fad detox diets that dangerously limit your calorie intake and starve your body of vital nutrients. At the same time, losing unwanted pounds is a desirable effect of detoxification.

As you cleanse, additional support is available with nutrients that can build and repair your body at the cellular level for a new you. Products like AIM BarleyLife® and AIM RediBeets® cleanse and build. Since your nate Program Detox & Rejuve cell membranes are made up of two major 1

Healthier You! components, protein (60%) and lipid fats (40%), protein from AIM ProPeas™ and omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids from AIMega® help to build strong, healthy cells. AIM PrepZymes® supports digestion, and the antioxidant actions of AIM Proancynol® 2000 help damaged cells recover. All of these products support a balanced body pH.

Depending on your time frame, the four-week program can be repeated for another twenty-eight days with a variation of the fiber products, or you can detox for one week or less with the products and still receive cleansing benefits. The Detox & Rejuvenate Program can be your first step in the right direction for balancing your body chemistry, as well as managing your weight. Ensuring that your body effectively eliminates toxins is a crucial factor in becoming a healthier, happier you. For com p le te p rogra m instructions, read the Detox & Rejuvenate booklet or online version at www.theaimcompanies.com.

Meal Replacements for Cleansing ... with a Weight-Loss Bonus With your body’s natural detoxification system functioning optimally, you can get down to the business of weight management. Good nutrition, not starvation, is the most important dietary factor. This comes from whole food that includes healthy protein sources and a heavy emphasis on fresh vegetables along with portions of fruit. To supplement a healthy diet, AIM whole-food powders and natural health products provide you with concentrated nutrients and minimal calories. The key to successful weight loss is to not take in more calories than your body burns

daily. When you consume fewer calories than this daily amount, you lose weight. It’s that simple. On the other hand, it does not mean that you have to starve yourself. You can avoid high-calorie beverages, limit snacks, and, most importantly, reduce your meal portions. If you reduce gradually, your stomach will adjust to this healthy change. To help with this adjustment, one of the simplest ways to feel full with minimal caloric intake is by drinking nutritional beverages made with AIM products in the CoCoa Smoothie Pack. The pack contains AIM ProPeas™, a vegetable source of protein from peas; AIM fit ’n fiber, an apple-cinnamon enriched fiber and herb supplement that you can take on a daily basis; and AIM CoCoa LeafGreens™, a blend of chocolaty greens. Mixed together, these three nutritious supplements create a low-calorie, cocoa smoothie. This gives you a tasty option for a nutritional snack or meal replacement that reduces your appetite. At the same time, the CoCoa LeafGreens Smoothie Pack can help you to increase lean muscle mass while decreasing your body weight.

And when it comes to nutrient-rich AIM beverages that help you shed pounds, you are limited by your imagination only. AIM President, CEO, and co-owner, Ron Wright chose greens from AIM BarleyLife® to mix with ProPeas and fit ’n fiber. Along with modifying his diet, his regular morning smoothie helped him to lose twenty-five pounds. For more weight loss support, exercise burns even more calories. Whichever your preference—walking, running, swimming, etc.—even a little bit makes a positive difference in your overall health and wellbeing. Regular exercise will get you that much closer to achieving your weight-loss goals and maintaining good health. Build a new, healthier you in 2014 with AIM’s natural ways to cleanse and nourish your body. Testimonials should not be construed as representing results everybody can achieve.

Main Feature

The POWER of People The joy of building an AIM business goes beyond fi­ nancial freedom, flexibility, and in­ dependence. At its core, AIM is people helping people. For many Members, AIM is family. This is evident in the experience of Chairman’s Club Directors Charlotte and Keith Thompson from Dundee, Ohio. The Thompsons have built significant relationships in their community and beyond by being purposeful in their sharing of AIM nutrition. By doing so, they have built a successful business with a considerable downline—eighty-one Directors and seven elite Directors—and had the opportunity to connect with thousands of health seekers. Just as importantly, they have found their AIM family. “We live in an area of small farming communities, where neighbors help neighbors,” Charlotte said. “It is seldom that we leave home without seeing someone we know. We have made friends, visited the sick, and spoke in many home meetings in our local area for over sixteen years of AIM opportunities.” For the past ten years, the Thompsons have reunited with this family at the Dundee, Ohio AIM Conference. Since the first meeting in 2004, the event has drawn considerable interest from the local community and brought together not only the Thompsons’ downline, but other AIM Members, with attendance well into the 100s. “We wanted to educate our local community about health and nutrition along with the benefits of the AIM products,” Charlotte said. “We feel if people can improve their health the natural way, it is easy to share the good news with others. Everyone seems to leave the conference each year encouraged to share with others, so we have seen our group grow.” At the 2013 Ohio AIM Conference in October, the event celebrated its tenth year with more than 200 people filling the meeting space in 6 theaimcompanies.com I 1-800-456-2462

Dundee, Ohio, for two days of AIM education. The event truly is a reunion—for Charlotte and Keith, their large downline and their loyal supporters in Chairman’s Club Director Dr. John Shewfelt, Royal Emerald Director Ralph Peterson, and AIM co-owner Dennis Itami and his wife Kay. Together, this AIM family makes the Ohio AIM Conference possible.

How Ohio’s Conference happens Planning for each Ohio AIM Conference begins two years in advance. Charlotte has already reserved meeting space the 2014 and 2015 Ohio AIM Conferences. For publicizing the event, the Thompsons have found that the best way is via personal invitation. Charlotte and Keith printed 1,600 invitations for this year’s Ohio AIM Conference and had them prepared to distribute two months prior to the event, either through mail or handed out in person. In addition to invitation cards, the Thompsons also engage with their community at other events in the build-up to the conference. Charlotte and Keith will help anyone who needs it. They have driven countless miles to explain the AIM products to others. Charlotte is a great teacher and has helped so many overcome the spiritual, physical or mental encounters that they are going through. The Thompsons have tender, giving hearts, and they care about the personal lives of everyone they come into contact with. —Ralph Peterson, AIM Royal Emerald Director The Thompsons work tirelessly to meet the health needs of so many people. And the efforts continue as new Members seek to share their new knowledge with friends and relatives. Many thriving AIM businesses owe their success to Charlotte and Keith’s constant support and encouragement. —Dr. John Shewfelt, AIM Chairman’s Club Director


e Working TOGETHER! “We have had an annual AIM Partners Picnic for most of fourteen years in our back yard as well as other locations,” Charlotte said. “At that event, we have a great time with good food, testimonies, and door prizes, And we hand out cards to kick off our upcoming fall conference.”

Involvement from the AIM family The event would not be what it is without the support of the Thompsons’ AIM family. Dr. John Shewfelt’s involvement, along with that of Ralph Peterson and his late wife Phyllis, has been integral to the event’s continued success. “Our community loves being able to phone Dr. Shewfelt with questions from a doctor’s point of view,” Charlotte said. “After Dr. John saw the good turnout from the first conference, he encouraged us to hold annual events. “Ralph Peterson and his dear wife would often come early to help out with the conference in any way they could, flying or driving at their expense to support us. Most every year, Ralph speaks on sharing the AIM opportunity. For many years, he and Phyllis helped us pack folders around our dining room table for our conference attendees.”

The Thompsons also rely on the hospitality of their large downline to make the event possible. Many make homemade cookies for attendees. Each year a family volunteers to host the speakers and out-of-town guests for a dinner at their home. Additionally, Directors and downline help put together the conference handouts— folders containing agendas, catalogs, price list order forms, and product information. AIM makes available expert speakers like Keith Duff, AIM Regional Meeting and Training Director. The Ohio AIM Conference is truly a team effort. Charlotte and Keith Thompson’s dedication and commitment have helped them find success with AIM and improve the lives of those in their community. Events like the Ohio AIM Conference are a testament to this, and the help they receive in making the event a success is a testament to the value of their AIM family. At the 2014 AIM Convention in Savannah, Georgia, the Thompsons will be recognized and celebrated for achieving a million dollar milestone in the AIM Member Income Plan.

The Proancynol 2000 Boost It’s winter. For many people, this means the season of colds and the flu. For those who take AIM Proancynol 2000® daily, winter is just the season of cold weather, not illness. That’s because Proancynol 2000 boosts their immune systems with plenty of antioxidants that protect against unstable molecules known as free radicals. Free radicals attack your DNA, cells, and tissues, causing cell mutations, rapid aging, and damaged function of your immune system. Proancynol 2000 is the best supplement available for increasing antioxidant protection in your body. Its blend of seven ingredients provides a wide variety of antioxidants to neutralize the many types of free radicals. Taking this natural health product on a daily basis boosts your immune system so that you stay strong and healthy throughout all four seasons.

My husband, Derek, and I take Proancynol 2000 daily. We rarely get ill, and neither of us gets flu shots. One time when we were on vacation, we didn’t bring enough, and both of us got sick. If we ever feel a cold or flu coming on, we take more Proancynol 2000, which greatly reduces the symptoms. All of the people who take it say the same thing. It truly does boost your immune system. We’re actually afraid to not take it. And since we don’t eat properly all the time—not enough fruit and vegetables—we’re not getting enough antioxidants in our diets. Proancynol 2000 makes up for it. Audrey McNamara, Preferred Member Ottawa, Ontario Testimonials should not be construed as representing results everybody can achieve.

It’s a New Year for

Sixteen years ago, I was introduced to The AIM Companies™ in South Africa, where I am from. I love AIM products because, first, they helped me to get over the irritable bowel syndrome I had been struggling with back in 1997. Second, incredible health products like BarleyLife® allowed me to share improved health with others. As a result, my homebased AIM business began to grow. Today, my husband, Eddie, and I and our three daughters live in South Carolina. I have a family-health business, Alive Again LLC, that features all of the AIM products, which I live, breathe, eat, and sleep. The business of good health keeps me busy, holding Nutrition Boot Camp courses, doing community talks, providing personal health consultations, and organizing Raw Truth Wellness Mornings every April. Now and again, I do health and well-being segments on South Carolina’s WIS-TV. I was recently invited by Dr. James

Back in 1994, I went to college to become a registered massage therapist, opening Cooke & Company Massage a year later. I love what I do. This is how I built my AIM business as the products go hand in hand with good health and quality of life for my clients. I was thrilled when AIM introduced Magnificence. I give full body massages using its topical magnesium. I can’t say enough about the benefits of magnesium, especially since it has helped so many of my clients maintain good health. My clients are of all ages and from all walks of life, including hockey players. One of them told me that he likes the steady flow of peak energy that he gets from Peak Endurance. And everybody loves protein drinks made with ProPeas. I make sure that my clients always have information that helps them to learn more about AIM products. 12 theaimcompanies.com I 1-800-456-2462

Hébert of the Cancer Prevention and Control Program at the University of South Carolina to present a smoothie demonstration to him and some of his colleagues. It was such a privilege.  My focus has been to educate people. I believe that because my focus was in the right place, God blessed me with AIM—a company that has been stable for so long. AIM will always be part of my future. Leré Robinson, Star Sapphire Director Irmo, South Carolina

I promote AIM because I believe in the products. For example, I always have a travelsize bottle of Mag-nificence spray that I use wherever I go. It’s a conversation piece that gets people asking about what it is and why I use it. I give out information packages to people that show genuine interest. I take BarleyLife and use Mag-nificence regularly, and my good health allows me to continue doing what I love. I’m fifty-three, but people think I’m forty. Bonnie Cooke, Group Builder Camrose, Alberta


Business Builders

Business Builders I was born in 1982, the same year that The AIM Companies™ began. I grew up around barley grass juice powder because AIM has been a part of my family history for three generations.

My plan for business building is to advertise throughout the year in a magazine that goes out to thousands of locals. This opportunity allows me to be the 2014 sponsor for health and wellness. I’ve always been in sales, and I’m motivated to grow my AIM business more than ever.

My grandmother transferred her AIM membership to my mother in 2006. Just over a year later, my mother, Phyllis Hunter, did the same for me. The AIM legacy of good health and wealth lives on. I feel so fortunate that I have the business my grandparents started over thirty-one years ago.

Sloane Hunter, Royal Emerald Director Pleasant View, Tennessee

The new AIM Business Builder Bonus program kicks off 2014 with a financial boost available to all business builders. We look forward to publishing more success stories about business builders on the path to good health and greater wealth.

Prices reduced on AIM Prills, Gluten-free and dailyLife™ products

With the high prevalence of glutenintolerance and Celiac disease, The AIM Companies™ has lowered the price and removed BVP from gluten-free all-purpose flour, waffle & pancake mix, and pizza crust mix, to help get these products into the hands of those who need gluten-free products. AIM Prills and dailyLife body butter prices (US) have also been reduced. See the Price List Order Form for details.
