Spring Break and Teacher Elaine Brewster on Saturday AM Live

Elaine Brewster
Click Here to Listen to This Weeks Call
"Elaine Brewster knows all about the world of taking a breaks from the regular world of a career. Working only nine out of 12 months was normal for her, yet [she] never looked at her job as a laboring task, but simply as an opportunity to give of herself to others. As an elementary teacher for decades, she developed quite a list of fantastic truths that she’d pass onto her students. She has incorporated these same principles as she shares Nikken with others. And while she doesn’t look at people as students per say, she does look at others as perspective pupils who need to be taught the things that we’ve come to accept as common sense wellness truths."

"Spring Break

‘Taking a vacation from God is like taking a break from breathing’. - Oswald Chambers

Across the globe this month, primary schools, colleges, and university students are taking a break from their studies. One of ours just returned from a quick trip to Asia to visit a friend (‘I know it’s crazy Daddy to fly all the way to Indonesia with a 36 hour layover in Beijing, but the round-trip ticket was only $535’) while the other college/high school student is about to take her week to visit prospective universities in Southern California.

Do we as working adults ever take a designated week break? Or should we? While chatting with a real estate appraiser last week he asked me a question that I’d never been asked before. I had been sharing with him all the different things that Stacey and I are involved with as we attempt to live a life of balance according to Nikken’s 5 Pillars of Health. ‘Why do you do so much!?!?’, he asked in a most shocking way. I was actually shocked at my response because I didn’t hesitate for one second. ‘Because we can!’

There’s something about successful people that unsuccessful people don’t seem to notice at first. It’s that they tend to focus on living life to it’s fullest and keep a few core things in front of them. Dave & Valerie Johnson have modeled this for years and while talking with him on the phone this week, I realized that he passionately wants this for everyone he knows and meets along this journey called life.

Oh, and the other thing that is very crucial in living life to its fullest is to tap into the live things of life. Just like a concert, speech, stage show, or even video conference call, being part of something live is sooo much better than a recorded version. It’s because sharing something in real-time with others releases chemicals in the body that just don’t occur otherwise.

Coming April 1st at 5:30pm PST or 8:30pm EST we will have access to a live 15 minute conference call that will be unlike anything we’ve ever had in Nikken before. On Monday-Friday we will be able to tap into a short overview of what this company has to offer followed by a powerful testimony. These will NOT be recorded! Stay tuned for details as this will be a simple way to introduce people to what we have to offer and all they have to do is take a quick break from whatever they happen to be doing that evening. We can invite them, pop them a quick reminder text, or even 3-way them onto the line.

Tools of the trade and Professor Bill Cottle on Saturday AM Live

Professor Bill Cottle
Click Here to Listen to this Weeks Call with Bill Cottle.

Bill Cottle is a teachers teacher. As a member of the Boise State University faculty, he taught those in the education field how to teach others. He retired a few years ago only to discover how to apply these same skills to Nikken. Hosting a movie night recently seemed like a fun way to use a tool that everyone has access to via YouTube, and yet Bill knew that gathering people together in a casual setting would not only be relaxing, but a very time effective way to teach others about the new Kenko Ground. He’ll share how he did it, what went into it, and the results.

Tools of the trade

In any profession, there are things we use to make the job more productive and easier. Whether it be building a house, cleaning a house, selling a house, or even living in that same house, there are things that make any task(or opportunity) more fulfilling.

In the world of Networking or sharing, we in Nikken have learned how to adapt with the world of the Internet. I remember just a few years ago when we’d mail a VHS tape of Dennis Williams as the tool to introduce a person to the world of wellness as we know it. It would take 2-3 days via priority mail to reach them, another day or two for them to watch it and then usually a few phone calls to hear their thoughts. Today, we merely copy and paste a link of any short or long video into a text or email. The recipient has it in a matter of seconds and a few minutes later has reviewed the information.

Last week while following up via text with my friend John about his rare feet issue, I asked him if he watched the movie ‘The Grounded’. We had exchanged a few texts back and forth prior so I couldn’t figure out why there was an hour delay after my question. That wondering ended when he replied, ‘Now I have!’ I’m not sure what he thought of it or if it helped him make a decision about the Kenko Ground, but at least I know he watched it.

Fast forward to this week. Instead of sharing the link with a few people, my friend Larry and I simply invited them to a movie night where we showed it. I wasn’t sure what to think as I hadn’t watched the entire thing, but Iike any documentary, I know there is tons of information which causes a change in the viewer’s perspective. We followed the movie with an energy test and some light conversation about grounding. The next day I just happen to run into the wife of one of my guests who said, ‘my husband came home literally beaming with excitement because we know so many people we want to introduce this to!’

Dennis Williams taught me years ago that we never want to ‘close’ a deal or an experience. Instead, we want to ‘open’ people up to what Nikken can do for them. Larry and I didn’t have a power close other than encouraging people to investigate this technology more for themselves and those they know. We’ll see where it goes but we’ve already got another movie night on the calendar next week and we hope to fill the living room again.

Band-Aide or Surgery and Janice Miller on Saturday AM Live

Janice Miller
Click Here to Listen to this weeks call with guest Janice Miller. 
Janice Miller underwent major heart surgery a couple times recently.  The human body is an awesome creation and she is living proof that when a body is surrounded by the best stuff on earth, it will respond favorably.  She laughed when I made the comment this week that she wasn’t exactly a Spring chick and then quickly added, ‘that’s exactly why I’m so compelled to share Nikken because if it can help me bounce back this quickly, people need to know!’

"Band-Aid or Surgery?

While with Dad at his third physical therapy appointment after knee surgery, I couldn’t help but get caught up in the explanation of what his body had gone through and why surgery was inevitable.  Sure, he could have continued using Nikken’s wraps, CM Cream, Joint Formula, Power Chips, DUK tape, etc. and yet the damage was well beyond what his body was able to heal without a major alteration.  Don’t get me wrong, we have heard dozens of stories of people who have been able to completely avoid ‘going under the knife’ and these are truly wonderful, but it just wasn’t meant to be for Dad.  Sort of like him being able to keep his gall bladder after decades of a nasty German sweet tooth that had probably led him to consuming several thousand pounds of candy bars, donuts, and candy.  All conveniently hidden on the front seat of any vehicle he was driving.  Yep, his secret is now exposed.
What I’ve found to be most exciting though is that most people get attracted to Nikken (91% according to company research) because of a product experience.  This was definitely true for our family because we weren’t at the place of surgery back then.  We all just had some really agonizing issues that seem to magically improve in the course of a few days and weeks.  Isn’t that what band-aides are supposed to do?  Allow the body to heal naturally WITHOUT a trip to a doctor or surgeon.
Black and Blue Go Away!
 Last thought on the surgery note.  Before, during, and after his knee surgery, Dad has been immersed in the Nikken products.  Using the DUK tape directly over the incisions has been the most dramatic.  What was the most nasty color imaginable has quickly turned into the natural pink color of healthy skin.  I remember this oh too well last summer when I slipped while helping clean up debris at Dad’s barn and my upper arm took the brunt of the fall.  Nothing broken, but the beautiful black and purple mark was a perfect candidate for the Nikken band-aide solutions.  DUK tape and a Power Chip did the most remarkable job in 36 hours time.

As a first responder, I know that when people call 911 it’s for something really bad.  As much as I’d love to suggest Nikken products, its a major conflict of interest.  What’s great about sharing Nikken with anyone though is that most people are not in a panic.  The majority of folks are not needing surgery, they’re simply looking for a quick fix to get their body back at 100% or at least a little better than it has been."

PS Since this weekend is when all but Arizona and Hawaii lose an hour, be sure to check out Nikken’s blog to learn a few simple tips to avoiding a major bump in the road.  By far one of the best quick reads on this subject.

Grounded To Walk and Ellen Stoddard

Ellen Stoddard

"Ellen Stoddard was told by her doctor that she’d never walk again. When I met her a few weeks ago, this mid 30 year old power house of energy wasn’t walking, she was skipping with delight. She cannot even pronounce the rare muscle disorder that was her diagnosis, but what she does know and is excited to share with others is that Nikken products changed her life. She is a living example of how fantastic Nikken’s products can be for the most extreme situations."

Grounded to Walk

‘Wow! That’s incredible’ and ‘Walk with me’ are the two quotes that jump out at me this week. As my new friend Bill Cottle reminded me, the research and medical evidence is great, but it’s the personal passionate stories that really seem to get peoples attention.

After 77 years of a very active lifestyle, over three decades of that climbing ladders every day, Dad’s knees finally gave out. They are both well beyond anything that natural or Nikken solutions could repair. This week he had the left one completely re-built. The first quote was from the physical therapist 48 hours after surgery. He just kept going on and on about how he’s not seen very many people in the 70’s with that much range of motion and the ability to do what Dad was doing. We talked about magnets, grounding, and a few other solutions to which he simply replied, ‘I’m a firm believer in taking care of this body and whatever we can do to get results like this…. Keep doing it!’

Pat Haffner broke her hip seven weeks ago and had emergency surgery the next day. I bumped into her last night and she said ‘walk with me’ as we were shopping. She was literally beaming with delight because she only had a few minutes to shop as she needed to get home for her final physical therapy session. At the last one the therapist told her that she didn’t need his services anymore due to her recovery being so good. She shared with me that she thoroughly believes that the Kenko Ground was the major contributor to her success. While I don’t know how that last appointment turned out yet, I do know that her husband Larry got this therapists attention by doing a few fun energy tests and following up on Pat’s question as to whether he keeps is recovery product methods ‘open’ to new technologies.

Both Dad & Pat are walking testimonies of Nikken solutions. Is it just the Kenko Ground that delivered these amazing post surgery results? I don’t think so. As my friend Barb Satterwhite(RN) says, I believe that this product is the missing link to bring everything together. An ultra complete wellness home made from the best of what God put in the earth for us to enjoy, WITHOUT having to live outside in the cold or hot weather.

Here’s what I stole from Bill who will share with us in a couple weeks how he’s been using it. I have been sharing it with friends. Watch it for yourself and then have some fun.

When you're ready for a fantastic educational documentary on this subject, grab the popcorn and your favorite beverage. This will blow your mind and the minds of your friends whom you share it with.

25 Years and Ron Clark (RN) on Saturday AM Live

Vance Rogers, Julie and Ron Clark
Click here to Listen to This Weeks Call.
"Ron Clark has been a RN for 50 years. He’s seen every side of western medicine and for the last 15 years been the patient of ‘practicing medicine’. He’s quick to share that even though he knew there was a downside to getting cortisone injections for the agony in his shoulders/hands, this is what he did. Until the Kenko Ground arrived! Ron’s wife Julie has been a Nikken Consultant for years and she describes her husband as her guinea pig. Well, that is, until now. ‘He’s become my walking billboard!’ "

25 Year Anniversary

It’s best described as my wife Stacey did to our youngest daughter Addi this morning during our usual fun and yet crazy morning dance to get out the door. ‘It was 25 years ago today that I kissed Daddy for the first time and I knew that he would be the only man that I’d ever kiss after that.’

To say that I was speechless is an understatement. A quarter century of memories have been beyond what I could possibly fathom.
This morning as I watched Luis Kasuga share a heart message to those of us in Layton last Friday night, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed with 25 plus years of emotional memories in Nikken. ‘My message is bigger than my fear’ was a theme that kept radiating from his spirit. As he shared different stories about opening country after country in Latin and South America, he continued to emulate the same spirit that I remember meeting in Mr Isamu Masuda at my very first Nikken Convention in 1994. (There’s another 25 year anniversary.)

Dave and Valerie Johnson were gracious enough to capture the heart message from Nikken’s Global President and I couldn’t urge you more to watch this ASAP. Focus in and try not to multi-task. We were glued to Luis and I can still see the images in my mind as well as the feelings that were created. If you wanna get to know the new sheriff in town or the man at the helm of our ship, take a few moments to be inspired and challenged.

'New Sheriff in Town'

If you haven’t heard that Nikken has a new global president or that the man who’s put the Spanish speaking countries on the map has been deputized, then let me share a glimpse of who shared with us in Layton last night.

‘This position doesn’t mean I will have a better lifestyle. It means that I have a bigger responsibility. I want to be your friend.’ Luis Kasuga

What was most fascinating to me about Luis was not what he said from the stage, but what he modeled during the Humans Being More Training. He was the chief servant making sure we had anything we needed to maximize the experience.

You’ll hear more from Luis soon and you’ll see more of his contributions to Nikken.

"From brand new Wellness Consultants to what I call the ‘Seasoned Saints of Nikken’, we’ve got a few folks who are completing the iCan Attitude and wanna share their results.

February Slump?

The second month of 2019 is already here! The gyms are now back to their normal capacity, diet programs are starting to disappear from the store shelves only to be replaced by 50% of this country’s candy production in preparation of Valentine’s Day, and the majority of those resolutions have been completely nuked from the memory of those who made some sort of decision. How’s that for a cheery first paragraph?

‘Think like a man of action, and act like a man of thought’. - Henri L. Bergson

For the eighth time now, myself and almost two dozen others are finishing out the 12 week program called iCan Attitude. The instruction, application, memorization, accountability, and all around fun has once again blown me away. Each time I wonder if it will be as good as it was the last time only to be shocked that it’s even better.

While I could list quote after quote that I have in my phone over two years of note taking, I’ll finish this commercial for iCan by a little potty talk. That’s what we call it in our home to keep it somewhat discreet.

Running to the restroom at Home Depot the other day I couldn’t help but notice a gentleman finishing his business as I started mine. I decided to ramp up my iCan Attitude by engaging with a complete stranger. Three years ago I would have NEVER done this! In the less than 60 second exchange, he finished by thanking me for the humorous chat and then finished by saying, ‘Ya know, it’s men’s movie night at my house tonight and I’m gonna find that video on YouTube so I can share it with the guys. From what you said, I know that will really add to our evening. Thanks so much!’

 If you’re looking for a way to grow as a person and super charge your Nikken experience, drop me a text or call to 503-348-0749. We’re looking for a few good men and women who wanna be a blessing to others with the 5 Pillars of Health . The next 12 week course will start soon, it’s absolutely free other than the 20 minutes you invest each day."
