Magnetic Insoles for Shoes Make for Happy Feet

Magnetic insoles for shoes take care of your feet throughout the days so that they don't feel so tired and sore at the end of the day.Magnetic insoles for shoes are probably the most obvious and well known of Nikken’s magnetic products. They were the first item that Nikken released when they were founded back in the mid 1970’s in Japan. The magnetic insoles have been around for a long time and they have been improved a few times over the years. They still represent the core of what Nikken does.

Until recently, the Magsteps were the most popular magnetic insoles for shoes. They had large bumps on one surface and were smooth on the other. Nikken has phased them and the Magstrides (a thicker pair of magnetic insoles with a little bit of cushion) out over the past few years and is replacing them with the mSteps and mStrides. The new magnetic insoles have more powerful magnetic nodes and mostly insignificant bumps. They are more of a texture now.

The Truth About Health Products

Do you know the truth about your health products? Do you really need them?What is the truth about health products? Most of them are crutches, and that includes most of the Nikken products that I like too. That is because your state of health comes mostly from your beliefs about your health.

Dr. Bruce Lipton says that one third of all healing is through the placebo effect. That means that at least one third of your healing comes purely from your belief in your healing.

I believe the opposite is true as well, that at least a third of your illness comes purely from your belief in illness. That is the only reason that can explain why some companies bombard you with advertisements for products that you cannot buy without getting permission from someone else first. They bombard you with these messages to create the seed of a belief that you might have the issue they are promoting.

How to Filter Water When Backpacking

You need to be able to get clean water when you are backpacking. There are many ways to do it. What is best?I have always liked hiking and backpacking. Several years ago my father and I started hiking the Appalachian Trail. We weren’t of the very ambitious kind that set out to through-hike the whole trail in one trip, although taking off for five or six months does sound appealing every now and then.

We only hiked for a week at a time. The logistics are easier when hiking for only a week. We didn’t have to figure out how to get showers, do laundry, and resupply food and gear. Through-hikers have to do all of that because you can’t carry six months of supplies on your back.

One thing that is the same for both is how to filter water when backpacking. If you are going to be gone for more than a day then you are going to have to find water along the trail.

If you Want to Live, You Have to Keep Moving

To stay healthy you need to keep moving. There are many benefits to standing and walking.I know someone who is having a lot of health problems right now. She’s overweight, she has a pacemaker, she was put on oxygen a few weeks ago, and she was just in the hospital for congestive heart failure.

Her doctors told her years ago that she needed to get outside and take at least a short walk every day. That would have been so easy for her because she only lives four of five houses away from her son and daughter-in-law. She could have easily walked down and paid them a visit in the evening after they got home from work, but she wouldn’t do it. Now it’s too late.

Are Protein Bars Good for You?

Are your protein bars really good for you, or are they filled with junk ingredients?I read a blog post recently that listed a handful of food products that we generally believe are good for us, but many times are actually bad. Protein bars was one of them, so I decided to compare three of them.

The first bar is the Fiber One Oats & Chocolate Chewy Bar. It is readily available. I usually buy the Mega Pack with 15 bars at Walmart.

The second bar is the Dark Chocolate Walnut Kit’s Organic Fruit & Nut Bar from Clif Bar & Company.

The third bar is the new Chocolate Nut Kenzen Paleo Bar from Nikken. It is only available through an independent Nikken distributor.

Do You Really Need a Multivitamin?

Ideally we get all of the nutrition we need from our diet. Many people don't, so we have multivitamins to help.It’s easy to get confused about whether you need to be taking a multivitamin, or any other nutritional supplements. On one hand you have people who say that everyone should be taking one, and on the other hand you have people who say there’s no need what so ever. Which is right? Of course, the answer is somewhere in the middle and depends completely upon you and your diet.

What I Learned About How to Lose Weight

There are some very simple things that you can do to help you lose weight.I’ve been wanting to lose some weight for the past few years and not doing very well at it. Well I learned a couple things during the past week about how to lose weight that so far have really turned things around.

What I’m Not Doing

First, let me share some things that I’m not doing to lose weight. I’m not going to the gym. I have enough on my plate without having to add something else. The idea of going to the gym just does not appeal to me. Movement for the sake of movement seems really boring to me. The whole time I would be thinking about all of the other things I could be doing. And, there aren’t any gyms anywhere close to me, so that isn’t an option anyway.

How Important Is It to Get Enough Sleep?

How important is it to get enough sleep? Sleep is when the body relaxes, heals, and recharges for the next day.The National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults aged 18 to 64 years old get seven to nine hours every night while adults 65 and over need seven to eight hours at night. School-aged kids from 6 to 13 years old need nine to eleven hours of sleep and teens from 14 to 17 years old need eight to ten hours of sleep at night.

What happens if you don’t get enough sleep at night?

Looking at the just the obvious effects should be enough to convince you to get enough sleep. When you don’t get enough sleep you often wake up more tired than when you went to bed. If this goes on for very long, you’re going to burn out.

How Does the PiMag Waterfall Compare to the Turapur

The Nikken PiMag Waterfall reduces many contaminants, like chlorine, chloramine and leadOne of my customers emailed me yesterday asking me to compare Nikken’s PiMag Waterfall with the Turapur countertop water filter from Laissez Faire’s Living Well. I’m always interested to see what else is out there, so I decided to go ahead and take a look.

First, she assumed that I would say that Nikken’s PiMag water filtration systems are better just because I am a Nikken distributor. I have never just said that Nikken’s products are better without comparing the data and I’m not about to now. I’m not blindly loyal to any company whether I earn my income from them or not.

How to Keep Strong Bones

There are many factors to building and maintaining strong bones.Last week I wrote a post about lactoferrin, a protein that does many things in the body including helping maintain healthy bones. Donna Merrill, one of the bloggers that I follow regularly, said that the bone benefit was what appealed to her about that post, so I thought I should share what else I know about how to keep strong bones.

The Most Important Thing to Building Strong Bones

You may be surprised by this because it isn’t something that you need to buy or that I can make money on. The absolutely most important thing that you can do to keep strong bones, or build strong bones, is to use them. You’ve heard the phrase “use it or lose it,” right? That is absolutely true with your bones. If you use your bones, your body will make them stronger. If you don’t use them, then your body will reassign those resources somewhere else.
