Legacy and Chris Bruce on Saturday AM Live

Click Here to Listen to this weeks call With Chris Bruce.

"Robert The Bruce was a major player several hundred years ago who helped shape the country of Scotland. Chris Bruce is doing the same thing in Nikken(though not with a sword) as a direct descendant of the Scottish King and son-in-law of Dave and Valerie Johnson. I was perplexed by his famous legacy that started back in the 1200’s and how he does simple things everyday to make a difference in the lives of others."

In a few minutes I will say farewell to our Korean exchange student who has lived with our family for the last five months. During this time I have learned much about another country that I was completely unfamiliar with other than Kia automobiles were manufactured there. Actually, truth be told, I really didn’t even know that.

What I did know is that Nikken manufactures quite a few of our products in South Korea. Asian countries all have their own unique traits and the one thing in common is a rich history of culture and tradition. I find it fascinating that as we as a company are just a few years shy of 50 years old, yet we can tap into the legacy of a small country that has endured many ups and downs while still being a powerhouse player on the world market.

Part of my mission statement that I wrote after my first Humans Being More experience in 1994 includes the phrase ‘to leave a legacy for future generations’. While I don’t know exactly what that looks like, I know that everyday I have the opportunity to make small decisions that will have lasting impact. Or as our pastor says, ‘It’s not the perfection of our lives, but the direction’.

Having a focus on the 5 Pillars of Health causes one to consider the legacy that we will leave. Five months isn’t a long time, but I know our family is richer because we chose to step out and invite in a stranger to our already over active lifestyle. Yep, as I learned a long time ago, it’s not about what happens when we get into Nikken, it’s when Nikken gets into us that things really get exciting!"

"Al and Sandra Thornton are two people who know how to have fun with life. He retired from marketing a few years ago and she from the life of a PHD in the academic world. They recently returned from the Team Kaizen trip in Italy and have a totally different perspective on the life of a wellness consultant now."

"Summer Fun!

Gardening, walks in the park, exterior home improvements, etc seem to fill our evenings and weekends. This is the time of year where most of us get outside and enjoy nature to it’s fullest. Since being educated on the concept of grounding, I’ll admit that I’ve sought out chunks of grass to sit or lie down on. It’s truly amazing the benefit.

For some though, as the Top Gun movie song says, they’ve lost that loving feeling. They’ve forgotten how great nature can be and due to physical issues, they couldn’t enjoy it even if they wanted to. Their physical problems create limitations that impair their ability to enjoy as God intended us to enjoy it.

Our oldest daughter’s friend paid me a great compliment this week by saying, ‘you’d be great at rock climbing and you should go with us next time’. The more I thought about it, the more I was grateful for Nikken’s products and the ability we have to tap into the benefits of a Wellness Home. Great sleep, water, air, and nutrients are things that we take for granted because we’ve tweaked our home by making the investment into simple solutions that create an environment of wellness. I’ve never done any rock climbing and at 50 I’m not sure it’s a great time to start, but the encouragement of a 20 year old may just spar me on.

Do we see people as potential customers when they don’t know about Nikken? While it’s good to do this, it’s far better to think about what they’re missing out on. As we gather at graduation parties and other events, it’s often the best time to ask people what they’re going to do or not going to do this summer. And then share why we’re able to do what we can because of Nikken because we’ve brought all of nature’s earth technologies inside to enjoy all year round."

Are You Fit or Fat? by Laurie Jones & Sandy Martin on Saturday AM Live

Laurie Jones
Click Here to Listen to This Weeks Call with two Ladies that know a thing or two about releasing weight.

"Laurie Jones and Sandy Martin are two ladies who encourage me daily. I don’t get to talk with them every day, but their example is what challenges me to take care of this temple where I live. Laurie has dropped over 100 pounds that she carried for decades and Sandy has maintained a super active lifestyle in an amazingly fit 70’s body. Both of them have incredible wisdom to share with us that I think is really beneficial to not only sharing Nikken with others, but to use every day to enjoy the bodies God gave us."

"Fit or Fat?

I observed something this week that a photo would have added complete commentary to the experience, but I think I can describe it so that you get the idea of the irony.  A gentleman driving a Smart car pulled into a bottle/can recycling center.  As I looked closer to watch, I could see several bags of empty soda and beer cans in the passenger seat and the small area behind the seats.  The irony is that this person obviously was wise about his investment in a very efficient vehicle and yet not so much in his consumption of beverages.  And here’s the kicker…. I would have guessed his weight in excess of 300 pounds.

I’ve shared that story with two different people this week and received two completely different responses.  The first person felt sorry for this individual due to their size and maybe lack of knowledge of the negative impact of beer/soda consumption.  They went on to comment how abusive we are on our bodies by carrying extra weight and how a simple choice to eliminate sugary drinks and limit alcohol could make a huge difference. The second person literally attacked me that I would even mention the size of the man. They listed all the possible reasons why this man could be this size and criticized me for looking at him this way.

A few years ago I was that man.  I carried an extra 50 pounds on my small body and I’m sure that it contributed to some of the knee and lower back issues I have today.  Thankfully, Nikken has allowed me to make a change.  I went from the fat to fit category over a process of time and for the last several years I’ve been able to enjoy a much better quality of life.  I routinely get comments about being skinny or that I must be one of those lucky people who can eat anything without gaining a pound.

Consuming half my body weight in ounces of PiMag water every day and starting my day with easily digestible protein like what's in the KVB has been my secret weapon.  That’s it!  No extreme diet plan, coaching, exercise routine, etc.. I don’t make the excuses I used to make or justify eating processed junk.  It’s as simple as eating real food, but the real key again is starting the day with easily digestible protein.  Feed the brain early and it’ll take care of the body all day long.

I don’t obsess over people’s size, I simply notice people and my heart breaks for people who are trapped like I was.  It’s very challenging because so many emotional issues are involved with over-eating or poor eating.  Fortunately, Nikken has given us a simple solution to share with others.

TEAM - Part Two and iCan Attitude Stories on Saturday AM Live

Click Here to Listen to This Weeks Call with members of the current iCan Attitude Session.

"In the spirit of TEAM, I’ve asked a few people from this last iCan Attitude session to share some of the high points of how their life has changed with this course. From school teacher to a Physical Trainer, Police Dept. booking desk clerk to professional pitch person, we’ve had the most diverse team represented. But the coolest part about this group is how we’ve all come together to achieve more with Nikken."

TEAM - Part Two

Together Everyone Achieves More is something you wouldn’t expect to see in an individual sport like snow boarding, but I got to witness something yesterday that I’d never seen before. It was the last opportunity to use 3 $25 lift tickets, the weather was beautiful, and our oldest was home from University. And with a 97 inch base, why not!

Due to the first day of Spring skiing at Timberline on Mt Hood, there were only a few runs open with one chair lift. What Kenna, Addi and I quickly discovered was that the terrain park area with all the jumps, rails, and man made creation was the best snow on the slopes. We were among groups of about 25-30 snow boarders coming down at the same time tackling these crazy obstacles performing flips, spins, twists, and body maneuvers that most would think impossible.

The team part comes into play when I observed that they literally moved as a unit because some of them had Go Pro cameras mounted to helmets or in their hands to capture this synchronized dance.

For almost three years I’ve had the privilege of being part of the iCan Attitude program. The variety of people taking part continues to amaze me because our growth and central focus has been that of a team. We all want to grow our Nikken businesses, but even more we want to grow in the 5 Pillars of Health. None of us have had to risk death(it actually says this on the terrain park entrance sign), but we have had to risk a lot of fears that we tend to find buried deep within us. Because we go into the program as a group with some simple guidelines, everyone of us finishes the 12 week course better than when we started.

The next program will commence on June 18th. Pop me a text at 503-348-0749 if you’d like to take part. The program is absolutely free with the only cost being your investment of about 20 minutes per day. And giving up some old nasty habits that probably kept you stuck.

May 19, 2019

"For Molly Simpson and Team En Fuego, it’s perfectly normal to utilize the concepts of playing Nikken as a finely tuned NBA team of five on the court, or a group of 11 NFL players on the football field. Regardless of the number, Molly and Kaylene Ames will share what they’ve implemented to not only make sharing Nikken fun, but profitable. Kaylene was Molly’s first Consultant years ago and what started back then, still continues today as it gets better and better and better."

Please Read Vance's Tip of the Week.


Together Everyone Achieves More and many hands make light work are two sayings that I find myself hearing over and over again. Three billionaires and over 12,000 millionaires have been created by Bill Gates and his company Microsoft. Was it all Bill? I don’t think so! It was a team of people that will probably never be known for their contribution other than the fact that they know they’re part of the group of computer geeks who have impacted the world with their contributions.

Very seldom does anyone ever achieve success in any venture by themselves. Sure, inventors and engineers create things in isolation, but if it weren’t for a friend, partner, etc., their contributions would never be known. This is why a team is vital to the success of anything.

Dave Johnson spear headed the daily Sizzle calls a few weeks ago and they are making a huge impact on peoples lives. While I don’t know the background on what went into these short and sweet (12-15 minutes) introduction calls, I do know that I’ve been ready to join this movement each time I tune in. The stories are sometimes beyond belief, and yet not over the top with false claims. They’re NOT recorded due to the fact that they’re not polished presentations, just normal folks sharing what Nikken has done for them.

Here’s a simple suggestion that I’ve used to expand our Customer & Consultant base AND be part of an incredible team. Listen to one or two of the calls, get an idea of what to expect, and then start plugging in your people. Either 3-way them in from your phone or invite them to join WITH a reminder text a few minutes prior to the call.

Water-A Family Affair Part 3 and Peggy Goodman (PT) on Saturday AM Live

Peggy Goodman
Click here to Listen to this Weeks Call with Peggy Goodman. She "was a highlight of this years Nikken event in Layton, Utah. As a physical therapist for over 40 years, she wowed us all with her knowledge of how the body works and importance of water. And not just any water, but PiMag water. She’ll explain why our bodies absorb three times more Nikken water than any other source and she has the clinical evidence/life experience to back it up too!"

"Water-A Family Affair Part 3

I remember years ago chatting with one of my hero’s at a Nikken event. I told Dr Guth that Stacey and I have said many times that when we grow up we wanna look and be just like her. She merely laughed and gave credit to the PiMag water that she’d been consuming for 15 years at that point. ‘People don’t understand the value of quality water and it’s impact on the entire body. Drinking and showering with the Nikken water is the best anti-aging secret on the planet.’ She was in her 70’s when we had this conversation and I swear to you that she didn’t look a day over 50!

This week has been one of those that Spring arrived in Oregon with record setting temps. It’s still cool at night, but yesterday we even had a fire weather warning due to warm winds. While ‘playing’ with my brother and two nephews on a roof yesterday I could feel the need to consume more water than normal, but failed to take enough with us. Had I used my brain, I could have merely asked the homeowner to re-fill our water jug since he is in fact one of us and has a Waterfall. When I sat down for dinner on the porch last night, Stacey asked me if I was out of words for the day to which we both laughed. ‘No, I said. I’m just more than parched and it’s my own fault’.

Last story…. On Tuesday of this week I had the opportunity to speak in Stacey’s Language Arts classroom on the subject of story telling. I pulled several current events into my life story and yet had most of the students memorized because I told it in second person point of view. I knew it was pretty effective when one of the 7th graders in the last class threw her hand up in the air while yelling ‘I knew it was you!’. Talking for almost four hours is brutal on the voice box, but I was smart enough to take my two water bottles from home plus the Nikken sports bottle just in case. I learned from Dr James Dobson that public speaking requires an extra amount of water to keep our vocal cords hydrated.

Whether it’s physical on the inside or out, our bodies need AND deserve the best water on the planet. Or as my water expert friend Charlie Franklin taught me years ago, ‘When it comes to water filtration, we either have an external unit or our bodies become that unit’. As the weather gets warmer, now more than ever we need to make sure we’re consuming enough PiMag water.

Water-A Family Affair Part 2 and Ron Clark (RN/Cop) on Saturday AM Live!

Vance Rogers, Julie and Ron Clark
Click Here to Listen to This Weeks Call with "Ron Clark[, He] became an instant Nikken celebrity a few months ago with a short YouTube video that highlighted his experience with the Kenko Ground. Because of his first ’treatment’, his life was changed for the better. It created such a stir that the video got pulled from the Internet and we were reminded why we need to be careful in sharing our stories. Ron had suffered with raging shoulder and hand issues for years. This impacted his sleep. He chose to sleep in a different bed than his wife because of this. He found it difficult to get dressed in the morning. And yet he’d been using the Nikken products for about 20 years. All of them! The missing link for him was earthing. It’s been five months since Ron first used this product and he doesn’t miss a day. His story just keeps getting better."

"Water-A Family Affair Part 2

‘Daddy, can I have a drink of your water?’ This seems to be a prevailing question anytime we get in a vehicle and drive more than ten minutes from home. While I appreciate the request and will never say ‘No, get you’re own water bottle’, I often ask myself why our three girls crave water more than anything else. Is it because they know it’s good for them or that we don’t usually order beverages when we go out to eat? I have to think that it’s more because a child’s behavior and choices are caught not taught.

Order Yours Today
Most people know that we are supposed to consume half our body weight in water every day just to maintain hydration. As we head into the warmer months this intake should increase due to activity. Nikken makes it easy with both the Waterfall and the Sports bottle to always have the best water on the planet at our fingertips for pennies per gallon.

A few weeks ago I read an article in a major newspaper about the current trends on college and university campuses regarding water bottles. I’d cite the source, but now I cannot find it. The title of the article was simply, ‘Why young people are willing to spend $50 on a water bottle’. What the article pointed out was that a water bottle to these students fresh out of high school and most of them away from home for the first time is a status symbol. Some institutions go all out investing into hydro flasks with their college name and mascot on the side where as others find a cheap ‘made in China’ plastic BPA filled container that is just as bad and drinking from water bottles. These students will invest $50 into these bottles just so they can be part of the club.

My take away from all this is that people will invest into water devices for a variety of reasons and cost really isn’t the issue. In 2000, our family chose to invest into Nikken’s PiMag filtration unit ($680) and have invested into every device since then including 3 or 4 different bottle upgrades. We hope to model water consumption so our girls will understand the value of how important it is. And for the little bit invested, this is a no brainer baby!
