Click Here to Listen to Esther Smith share her secrets!

From an extremely diverse occupational background to that of one of Nikken's top retailers today, Esther Smith definitely has a story that needs to be heard. She discovered Nikken because of a horse and it's taken this admittedly shy high school graduate some time to grow into the person that she is today.

Vance's Tip of the Week

May 26, 2017

I’m sitting on our porch right now enjoying the beautiful Spring weather that has finally arrived with abundant sunshine. Warmer temperatures have a way of cleaning the air and drying out what has been the wettest Spring in recorded history for the Portland, Oregon area.

Roger Drummer taught me years ago that all of Nikken’s solutions will help the body detoxify because all of our products help cleanse the toxins from the body. It’s not just water that flushes out this crud, but all the natural earth technologies working together. And I was reminded this week during a 3-way call that even our minds need to be detoxified by eliminating or guarding against toxic relationships.

It's been said Nikken is the only company with truly a total wellness home. So it becomes much easier to detox all the different areas with this total wellness concept when we have all of the wellness solutions available. I think the toughest decision we have to make when we discover Nikken for the first time or as we discover more of what is available, is where to start? That question can be answered best buy asking ourselves, what needs the most detoxification?

The Little Things and Team Kaizen Member Ruth Loh on Saturday AM Live!

Click Here to Listen to Ruth and Vance Share a "Silver Bullet"

Ruth Loh is a 2017 Team Kaizen member who lives exactly what Ben shared in this weeks leadership training. She set her sights on winning the trip to Cancun and did what it took to get there. Her journey of success is inspiring and what she did to be part of Team Kaizen is not only amazing, its duplicatable!

Vance's Tip of Week

'There is absolutely no way you were 50 pounds more than you are today!'

It seems like every week I hear this response from someone because the epidemic of extra weight or the battle of the bulge is reaching astronomic numbers. How did I do it or what was my secret to shedding 1/3rd of my body weight today?

It's the little things. Just like Ben Woodward shared in this weeks leadership presentation to achieving our goals, it was those daily things that needed to be done that allowed me to repair some really bad choices.

I would like to suggest that it's the same for all 5 Pillars of Health. Watch what Ben shares in this most excellent video and ask yourself the question, What little thing can I do today to improve each of the 5 Pillars for me? If it's a goal that I want, what am I willing to give up to reach that goal?

Rachel Dayton's KVB Experience and Julie Tara on Saturday AM Live!

 Click Here to Listen to this weeks call the wonderful Julie Tara. 

Another fabulous friend in Colorado is the legendary Julie Tara. From a background in professional ballet, Julie has continued to dance her way into Team Kaizen for three straight years. 'I simply want to live the 5 Pillars and there's no better way to do this but by practicing a Kaizen philosophy everyday AND inviting others to join me.'

Julie is one of only a few people who have earned a spot on Team Kaizen every year and is willing to share some of her daily habits for success. Her personal experience with Nikken's products is compelling enough, but to hear some of her secrets makes any conversation with her a real treat.

The KVB Everyday Organic-Based Weight Management program works and boy does it ever work well. This experience from our friend Rachel Dayton is just one of dozens that I've read or heard in the last few weeks. In just one month we have the potential of doing a complete U-Turn with our physical body. And where we go from there is totally up to us.

After one week I'd lost 5 pounds and MY HOT FLASHES WERE GONE!

On April 5, I began a 30 day commitment to Nikken's Everyday Healthy Eating Plan. I wanted to shave off the extra 10 pounds that created that "muffin top" around my middle, and tone up.

I followed the protocol - 2 KVB shakes/day made w/ 8 oz. of organic unsweetened almond milk (sometimes w/berries) 3 detox cleanse, 3 digestion - one before each meal, one Ten4 tea in the afternoon, usually only one Paleo Bar for snacking. I also drink at least 3 quarts of Pimag water/day.

I was conscious of cutting out the bad carbs and sugar, instead eating salads - both at dinner and sometimes added for lunch if I was hungry from skiing all day. My snacks when needed included hard boiled eggs, avocados, apple slices, celery, raw almonds. For dinner I ate a salad, at least one green veggie and fish or meat. Occasionally I had some brown rice or quinoa and maybe twice in the month, roasted potatoes. Honestly, I never felt the need.
I also changed my alcohol habit, having one glass of wine OR one vodka on the rocks. This for me was my "one cheat" but also about half what I normally consume in an evening. I like wine!

I have felt sated and super energized the whole time, and NEEDING FAR LESS SLEEP.

After one week I'd lost 5 pounds and MY HOT FLASHES WERE GONE! Randy Rolfe, certified whiz in nutrition, says my liver, once and for all, rid itself of unneeded hormones and subsequently, the "side effects" of menopause that accompanied them. Even the wine is not bringing them on!


After a week, I cut back to two, then one Detox Cleanse and Digestion in the morning before my shake, as it seems all I need.

I do eat a tsp. of Jade Greezymes, daily, and the bone health pack.

Today is Day 29... Here are my stats:
Day 7 - lost 5 lbs
Day 14 - lost 8
Day 21 - lost 11
Day 29 - lost 14

Tomorrow is final, final. I will continue with healthy eating habits formed, go back to one shake per day for breakfast, and continue a one a day of cleanse and digestion. After all, I don't want to 'blow away' as I likely can fit into my cheerleading uniform from High School.

Rachel Dayton - 63 and feeling fabulous!"

Skinny? and Team Kaizen member Tony Collins on Saturday AM Live!

Click Here to Listen to Tony Collins share the methods he uses to be one of Nikken's Top Retailers.  Vance Emailed:  ‘Sorry I missed your call a few minutes ago. I was helping a Customer place an order’. "These were the exact words that Team Kaizen member and top retailer Tony Collins shared with me when we chatted briefly a few days ago. He’s been helping Customers get connected to Nikken at a record pace lately and it’s evident he knows how to help make this happen. As a matter of fact, a few months ago he helped over 80 people join as Customers in one month!

Wanna know what Tony is doing to facilitate such wonderful growth?"  We know you do, so click the above link.

Vance's Tip of the Week:

Why are you so skinny?
Six years ago I found myself defending the fact that I’d almost reached my high school weight, being forced to buy a size of pants that I hadn’t worn in 25 years, and explain to people that I was in fact healthy. For people that I hadn’t seen since our 20th reunion, they just couldn’t understand active wellness and continued to justify their lack thereof. As they fought the battle of the bulge, it was easier to attack me with a question about my size rather than face the fact that they were losing a war.
My biggest question then and continues today is simply this: If our height hasn’t changed since we were in high school, why should our weight? Oh yes, everyone immediately starts listing all the reasons and justifications for carrying extra weight. I did the same thing for years. Being 40 pounds heavier looked ‘healthy’ is what some people told me. It may have appeared healthy, but it wasn’t.
 If every extra pound I carried produced an extra four pounds of pressure on my joints, I was forcing more than my current body weight onto my hips, knees and ankles. And here’s the shocking fact that REALLY got me thinking... Every extra pound of weight is equal to seven miles of blood vessels and veins that my heart is forced to pump blood throughout my body. If I’m doing the math correctly, that is the same distance as traveling across the state of Oregon! I was forcing my heart to push blood almost 300 miles further than it was designed to pump!!! Is it any wonder why heart disease is still the #1 cause of death?

In a new presentation Brody Craney repeatedly asks the question, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if there was a solution to help us with our weight management issues?’ I’ve watched and shared this clip more times this week than I can even remember. For the sake of your future and people you care about, please watch and share this link. We have a solution folks and now I can answer any question without having to defend myself. Brody does a fantastic job and once you see what he assembled into one easy-to-digest presentation, I think you’ll be better equipped to share our wonderful Everyday Organic Based Weight Management program with others.
