Water-A Family Affair and Power Family Ladies

Click Here to Listen to This Weeks Call with four Amazing Ladies; Suzanne, Ann, Laurie and Karen.

"Suzanne Steele started her journey with Nikken more than two decades ago after a life-altering accident. Her aunt Ann after many sleepless nights and then her sister Laurie after carrying an extra 100 pounds most of her adult life. Cousin Karen is now part of the family enjoying the benefits of the Nikken products and this group recently traveled to Florida for a wedding. ‘Nikken on the go’ has been a theme for this family because wherever they find themselves, they’re always enjoying the benefits of these great products."

Water-A Family Affair

NPR reported this week a pediatric study that has been haunting and empowering me since I heard the news. They took 8000 children, ages 2-18, and surveyed their drinking habits. Of these, 20% do NOT consume any water what so ever. And these same 20% have double the caloric daily intake due to the sugar in the soda, juice, and energy drinks that pass over their lips.

As a teacher of sixth and seventh graders, my wife has a front row seat in this production of insanity. Parents who struggle getting their kids to focus on simple things like reading, writing, and math while bringing them to school every day with a beverage and breakfast from the local coffee shop.

Growing up in the country, our daily intake of beverages was pretty simple. Mom never purchased soda and if we wanted juice it was made from frozen concentrate and we always had to mix it with five cans of water instead of just three so it would last more than a day. So all we were left with was plain ol’ boring water.

Since our bodies are 72% water (same percentage as the earths surface), if we want to see improvements in daily functions, we might want to replenish this simple crucial element. Half our body weight in ounces is the easiest way that I know how to do this. As the weather warms up and we start to ‘glisten’, it’s a good idea to increase this amount. Or on a day like today when the youngest wakes up with a tummy ache, its a great idea to encourage consuming H2O from the Sports bottle because its a little more alkaline than the Waterfall. Offsetting any virus in the body can be accomplished faster by increasing less acidic food and beverages.

Next week I’ll reference another news factoid I heard weeks ago how young people on college and university campuses are spending upwards of $50 on water bottles that are nothing more than a carrying container. No filter, no thermal benefit, just a simple bottle. When we look at the cost of the Nikken sports bottle for less than $50, that excuse of cost isn’t a factor. And then the Waterfall for just over $300 with a monthly maintenance cost of less than $20, the best water on the planet is affordable for the entire family!"

Good Friday and Herb Rapp on Saturday AM Live

Grace and Herb Rapp

Herb Rapp summarized his San Diego experience in just 45 seconds on the Nikken prayer call this week. I was dumbfounded and asked him for an encore performance to which he gladly agreed. If you’ve never heard this former tennis pro’s story who’s still whipping it up in his 70’s, you’ll want to tune in. And considering he’s been with Nikken almost as long as the three decades we celebrated last weekend, he’s got a few life experiences to talk about.

Good Friday

‘Why is it called Good Friday if he died?’ was the question I was asked this morning as I took a few minutes to read the historical account. My mind was racing with so many ways to answer our youngest daughters question and yet the thing that stuck out in my mind was what has transpired this week in present day. Both her older sisters visited Notre Dame in Paris with us in 2006 so we as a family were shocked to hear the news of the fire.
The short version of my Good Friday explanation to Addi was simply this… The book of Isaiah talks about the concept of beauty for ashes. Out of every tragedy, good will triumph. Or as Cardinal Dolan of New York City said, ‘Just as the cross didn’t have the last word, neither will this fire’.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that this holiday is in the Spring when we here in the western part of the globe see new life coming forth in nature. It’s like this with Nikken as well. 91% of us were introduced to this company because of something wrong or not quite at 100%. Through a process of using life-improving products, new life comes forth. It’s hard and even painful at times, but in the end, it’s always better.

Consider the fact that in less than a week after a massive cathedral suffered a major tragedy that nearly one billion dollars has been donated to the restoration process. Human history was altered forever in just three days. Life always comes from death and therefore we can call it good. Have a fantastic Easter celebration!

San Diego Sensations No, they’re not a trio of amazing artists or a band that is taking Southern California by storm, they’re three amazing ladies who all made the trek from Virginia to the event this weekend and offered to share the highlights with us. Barb Satterwhite, Gwen Carter, and Mary Bowser will give us the best of what they can capsulize in 30 minutes of less. They’ve been to a few conferences before and I cannot think of anyone better to glean the best of a 30 year old celebration. It’ll be fast paced so be ready to take good notes.

I memorized the iCan mantra years ago and it’s part of what fuels my passion for this company today. ‘My iCan Attitude only adds value to my brand. These values must substantiate my companies position as the only total wellness company making me a go-to resource for my target group.’ Sure, other companies have some amazing claims with great products and even greater people and yet they don’t address all the components of wellness. They may have a few wonderful items to help a variety of issues, but if we’re really honest, they cannot claim to be a one-stop shop for wellness. Again, we have to be honest.

So as we embark on the next year, decade, and beyond, we’ve now logged in 30 amazing years here in North America and I think we can truly say…. Only Nikken!

Facts Tell, Stories Sell and Dennis Williams Heart Story on Saturday AM Live

"One of my favorite story tellers just happens to be the same person that introduced me to the Nikken story. Dennis Williams shared a few product stories with my family over 25 years ago and I’m still intrigued by his stories today. Many have not heard the story that’s closest to his heart, no pun intended. It’s the one about his family DNA and how he’s outlived all the men in his family by years, even four decades longer than his own brother. He will be sharing some of the things that he’s discovered about our wellness home to live a life that is truly heart healthy."

Facts Tell, Stories Sell

We sort of knew it wouldn’t take long, but I’m not sure we were anticipating the floodgate of stories that would be created from adding one more simple earth technology to the wellness home. Some describe it as the missing link where as others have asked the question, ‘how come we didn’t know about this before?’ or ‘how is it that this concept has been kept a secret?’. Like any discovery found in nature, it was just a matter of time before someone unearthed it and shared it with the masses.

Some of us Nikkenites are still waiting to purchase the newest product introduced last Fall, but most trusted the companies research and development by making an immediate investment. These are the folks who are ‘earthing’ everyday WITHOUT having to get their hands or feet dirty. The price is comparable to what’s available on Amazon and yet the construction is way better with 20% silver where most others have just 5%.

Here are just a sampling of what was shared with me in the last week. And remember, these are not medical claims, just peoples stories. Any results generated by using any Nikken product is merely a coincidence and is not endorsed by the company as a proven outcome 100% of the time.

‘For over ten years I’ve dealt with raging agony in my shoulders. Since this has plagued me 24/7, I’ve not slept much, had difficulty getting dressed, endured extreme stiffness in my hands, and just not enjoyed life like I should have been able to. Several prescription modalities have been used as well as a few over the counter drugs, but I knew that wouldn’t deal with the core issue, simply mask the discomfort. Being a retired cop and registered nurse for 50 years, I’ve always been skeptical and thorough in using anything on or in my body. I read the book ‘Earthing’ three times before the newest product arrived because I really like studying. I used the grounding product for 20 minutes on my hands and then 20 minutes on my feet one evening. The next morning I was shocked as I slept through the night and woke up with none of the issues I’d had before. I hadn’t slept in over a decade and I’m not sure which is more wonderful, the act of sleeping or waking without the agony in my shoulders and hands. I continue to ‘earth’ everyday and the big knobs on my hands have decreased significantly.’

Control the Grand Children!
‘My six grandchildren came over with my two daughters for a day of fun with grandma. They were their typical active selves and yet one by one they started doing things that were unacceptable. Time outs were not working so I finally resorted to telling all of them that they needed to spend some time with their hands on grandma’s new blanket. Miraculously we didn’t have one behavior issue the rest of the day!’

‘Both my wife and I have lived in a wellness home for over 20 years. We love seeking common sense solutions so this latest addition just made sense. We really didn’t understand it, but we watched the documentary ‘The Grounded’ and were more than intrigued. The list of issues we’ve dealt with in our bodies is pretty long, but the main things are common to folks in their late 70’s due to just not knowing basic wellness habits years ago. I have been on blood pressure medication for 15 years and our doctor put my wife on a light dose two years ago. We were both shocked after just a couple weeks to discover that our blood pressure has dropped a bunch since using this new product. We check it regularly and it is now significantly lower for both of us. I was so alarmed that I called our friend who introduced us to grounding to inquire if this is normal. He laughed and simply said, ‘Oh, you mean that it’s helping to ‘normalize’ your body?’

‘I was riveted to the grounded movie as soon as I watched it. I immediately sent out four texts with the link encouraging these friends to watch it so they could learn about this great resource God has given us. My husbands miserable shoulder is so much more tolerable, his stiff hands and wrists are much better, and sleeping has been amazing for both of us. I used to use several of the magnetic products all over my body to get back in shape after my work-outs but haven’t had to this last week and yesterday I even did my 60 sit-ups. It’s amazing. At 77, I’m in love!!!’

‘My acupuncturist told me that she regrets not taking photos of my back and spine. She said that the entire structure of my body has changed for the better since I’ve been grounding. She also said that she’s never seen anything like it. Since my accident three years ago I have endured much agony and the weekly appointments to the doctors, chiropractic, acupuncturist, etc. are bringing some relief, but the addition of earthing has made the biggest difference. Even my chiropractor told me that the inflammation in my body has been reduced by at least 50%.’
