I started on the AIM Garden Trio, then got on to juicing and even grew my own wheatgrass. Nowadays I juice carrots and beetroot, but prefer using AIM BarleyLife as it tastes better than wheatgrass and is much more convenient.
Here are a couple of links for your convenience.

AIM high-quality dietary supplements and nutritional concentrates for you or your pets.
According to AlkalizeForHealth you can measure your susceptibility to cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis and many other degenerative diseases using a simple saliva pH test.
The problem was finding pH test strips. After asking many pharmacies I eventually found one who ordered 1-14 pH strips for me. This is better than nothing, but I still wanted strips that could give me a more accurate reading in a narrower range. I was about to import strips when I found a local (South Africa) supplier of pH strips (100 pHydrion Brilliant Dip Stik 5.0-9.0).
Unfortunately you cannot buy directly over the internet, but you can make an electronic payment and email through your order. Delivery to a post office usually takes 1-2 days.
You can join AIM as a member and pay wholesale prices or just order as a retail customer. If you are in South Africa see my post or contact AIM South Africa. Please provide the following AIM Sponsor details: Name: C Brink, AIM ID No: 9835941.
The pH test strips comes with detailed instructions on testing saliva and urine pH levels as well as the following handy information:
Saliva / urine pH reading
8.0 – 9.0 Too alkaline
7.0 – 7.5 Optimal range
6.0 – 6.5 Moderate, consider dietary changes
5.0 – 5.5 Too acidic. Consider serious dietary chnages. Seek the advice of a health practitioner.
AIM suggests suppplementing your diet with AIM Barley Life, AIM Barley Life Xtra (juice powder of young barley plants) and LeafGreens (barley, faba bean, field pea and spinach leaves plus broccoli sprouts) to help balance your body pH.
Eating less meat, more vegetables and juicing is probably a good start in improving your body’s alkalinity.

I recently bought a Hurom Juicer.
It took me a while to decide on which juicer to get. The selection in South Africa is not great. My shortlist consisted of a cheap juicer from Takealot, the Oscar DA900/DA1000 or the Hurom. At the end the fact that I could store juice from a slow juicer made the Hurom Juicer the winner. The other factor was that I wanted to do mainly juicing and after watching the video (see below) comparing the Hurom with the Oscar 900, the Hurom just seemed to be effortless.
After about 2 weeks of juicing I am very happy with my decision. The juicer does seem to get stuck if you feed it beetroot too fast, but that is easy to avoid by just alternating with other fruit or feeding the beetroot at a slower rate. It handles spinach and cabbage reasonably well, wheatgrass is something I must still try.
After reading a so-called survey by BusinessTech (by mybroadband) I just could not believe the results. I bank with three of the major banks and only had serious issues with one of them. I also happened to sit next to two other people at work who by pure chance also had major issues with the same bank.
So how can this bank come out tops in a consumer survey?!
Ok, since the BusinessTech survey is statistically meaningless due to the small sample I thought I might as well try out my crude statistical method I applied previously to compare cell phone providers.
This is how it works. Get the latest publicly accessible information on market share and then go to hellopeter.com and get the number of compliments and complaints in the last 12 months. Get the percentage of the total that each bank has out of the total and display it in a simple graph.
My results clearly shows that something unusual is going on here, either:
a) FNB really turned around and is actively seeking feedback from its customers (please may this be the case, I still bank with them) OR
b) a huge public relations effort by FNB
Leave me comments on what you think is going on, but only if you are not on FNB’s payroll.
