You know that you are supposed to drink water, but do you know what factors can affect the quality of the water you drink, and how they affect your body?
I believe that water is the most important “nutritional supplement” that you can take. Like all nutritional supplements, you need to make sure that you have good quality and you want to know what’s in it. You know that you need a good water filter to address that concern. You don’t want to drink the chlorine and other contaminants that are in most of the water that is available. Read more... (600 words, 2 images, estimated 2:24 mins reading time)

Is Your Body a Mansion or a Shack? You Need a Water Filter

Your body is your house, the physical vessel in which you live all of your life. Would you rather that house be a mansion that provides you everything you need to live a full life or a shack that is falling down around you?
If you answered that you prefer a shack, then you can stop reading, get yourself a soda and a donut and enjoy the rest of your life.
If you prefer a mansion, then read on. Read more... (429 words, 1 image, estimated 1:43 mins reading time)
What benefits could you get from magnetic earrings? It is commonly accepted that magnets can improve blood flow, reduce inflammation, and promote relaxation. Are those effects going to seem all that significant applied to the earlobe? Probably not for most people. A magnetic earring might be a good choice if you recently had your ear pierced.
I prefer to look at how magnets affect the body from an energetic standpoint. The body’s energetic aura extends a long way from the body and is strong and easily detectable close to the skin, say within the first inch or two. When you wear magnetic jewelry, like a pair of magnetic earrings, they sit in that energetic field around your head. Read more... (324 words, 2 images, estimated 1:18 mins reading time)
A lot of people start their morning and their afternoon with caffeine. It used to be just coffee, and it is probably still to the most popular. High school and college kids, at least when I was there, would drink a can of Coke on the way to school. Now it’s all about energy drinks, some with excessively high caffeine content.
How much caffeine in coffee?
People have been drinking coffee for a long time. Coffee varies a great deal in how much caffeine it can contain depending on the beans and how they are blended. It can have from as little as 27mg of caffeine in an instant coffee up to 200mg of caffeine in the brewed coffees. Read more... (587 words, 2 images, estimated 2:21 mins reading time)
Matcha green tea is the tea used in the Japanese tea ceremony and literally means “powdered tea”.
The difference between matcha green tea and other green teas is that you consume the matcha tea leaves with the drink instead of just the water like with other teas. Because you consume the leaves you get a lot more of the nutritional components of the tea – more antioxidants, more vitamins and minerals, more fiber. More nutritional components, more nutritional benefits. Read more... (522 words, 2 images, estimated 2:05 mins reading time)
I can’t get through the Spring pollen season without my Jade GreenZymes.
Anytime you buy a product from someone you always wonder if they actually use the product themselves. I am an independent Nikken distributor and I do use the products myself. I decided to write this series of posts to talk about the products that I use myself, why I use them, and what benefits I believe I receive from them. Read more...

I received a question recently on the Kenko PowerMini magnets:
Magnets? How does the magnet interact with the body? (Skin penetration, etc)
He sounded rather skeptical, so kept my response very high level and started with how magnets are used in medicine.
Nikken magnets have an effect on the body just by placing them within the body’s energy field. That’s the first place people have difficulty with magnets. They don’t believe in the body’s energy field. The body’s energy field is what is read by medical diagnostic equipment. Further, each organ has its own field that it generates. For example, an electrocardiogram (ECG) reads the electrical component of the heart field and a magneto cardiogram (MCG) reads the magnetic component. Read more...

A customer asked me yesterday if Nikken had anything that could help with her low back pain. She had injured her back and had a herniated disc.
I always have to start of my reply to any question like that with a disclaimer. I’m not a doctor and Nikken’s products are not approved as medical devices, so I cannot recommend them for any specific condition because that would be a medical claim.
I can share what I would do if I had low back pain. Read more... (380 words, 1 image, estimated 1:31 mins reading time)
According to the IBWA website, the bottled water industry sold 6 billion gallons of water in 2002 and sold 9.1 billion gallons of water in 2011. I saw on the CRI website that sales of bottled water in 2002 was 14.7 billion bottles and in 2010 was 42.6 billion bottles. That’s just in the U.S.
That’s a lot of water sold, and the plastic bottles that it comes in. The CRI website also said that 8 out of 10 bottles end up in a landfill or incinerator. Read more... (387 words, 1 image, estimated 1:33 mins reading time)
I am a big believer in using magnets to help the body, otherwise I wouldn’t use them myself or on my kids. I sleep on a magnetic mattress topper, I wear a magnetic bracelet and necklace and I have magnetic insoles in my shoes. If something hurts, like a sore muscle or something, I stick a magnet on it.
The thing is, if you are dehydrated then the magnets will have a reduced effect depending on how dehydrated you are. When you are dehydrated then the energy in your body cannot flow as easily. It’s like traveling in a city that doesn’t maintain the roads. The energy doesn’t flow and little gets done. Read more... (290 words, 1 image, estimated 1:10 mins reading time)
