Aid the Children was started by Paul Schneider Jr. in 2011. His passion for helping children and adults living with HIV all began when he discovered that his product, Ionic Sea Minerals, had a powerful effect on the immune system for those living with HIV. A study was conducted in the Kisumu, Kenya area where the product was administered to children who had been diagnosed with HIV. Amazingly, 90% saw their AIDS symptoms start to diminish within 6 to 8 weeks. This was just the beginning. It was then discovered that by adding in a blend of seaweeds, the body was empowered to fight back. In a second study in 2013, 90% of those who received the sea vegetables saw their AIDS symptoms begin to disappear in just 4 weeks. Ocean Treasure, which combines Ionic Sea Minerals with 9 sea vegetables, works hand in hand with ARV'S, supplying nutrients needed for them in their fight against HIV. Please join us in this wonderful journey of bringing much needed hope to those living with HIV.
