Alan & Erika Racko, Royal Diamond
alan & erika racko
Davie, Florida Incentives: Lifestyle Bonus, Home Incentive, Presidents Club, Millionaires Club Training: HBM, Gold Sponsor: Dennis & Chollanna Estes
former tournament tennis player and coach, Alan Racko made his living in a traditional import business before being introduced to Nikken more than 20 years ago. He had never thought of getting involved in the network marketing industry before, but Nikken changed all that. I was struggling with two things at the time, says Alan. At 29 years old, Alan was suffering terrible discomfort in his neck, back and shoulders due to a physical challenge that had developed over many years. Doctors and physical therapists had told him to learn to live with it. When Nikken came into my life, I realized there could be another way to deal with my physical problems. I got so excited that no one could stop me from sharing my experiences with everyone I knew. At the same time, Alan had also been seeking a career change. Again, Nikken was the answer, he says. Originally from Toronto, Alan signed up as a Nikken Consultant in his native Canada in April 1992. In the meantime, Erika Rossel had lost her job when the company she worked for in California suddenly relocated out of state. She was forced to seek more affordable living arrangements, and the situation seemed dire. I was praying for something good to happen to me, she recalls. After answering a job ad, she was interviewed and hired by the Nikken headquarters office an answer to prayer in more ways than she could have then imagined. As an employee, Erika was invited to experience Humans Being More training (then known as Silver training). There, on a humble piece of paper Erika assembled a collage of images representing her hopes and dreams. She confesses that her LifeCycle plan included lofty ambitions that she never thought were truly possible; among them her desire to meet and marry the man of her dreams.

The spanish connection


After helping to establish the Spanish language department at Nikken, Erika added the role of Spanish translator to her duties, working with Nikken Executive VP Larry Proffit. In 1993, Erika accompanied Larry Proffit to Mexico for a Humans Being More training event, and it was there that she and Alan Racko first crossed paths. They struck up a platonic friendship that endured for almost three years before they finally shared a momentous first date. Within 16 days, the couple was engaged and less than three months later Alan and Erika exchanged vows as husband and wife. Erika brought a uniquely valuable perspective as an erstwhile Nikken employee to the couples new partnership. Her fluency in Spanish has allowed Erika to build and grow their downlines throughout the Spanishspeaking community both domestically and abroad, in Mexico, Costa Rica and other Latin American countries. The Rackos have developed a robust network, climbing to the Diamond rank where they have happily maintained a thriving Nikken business for the past several years. But with the recent compensation plan enhancements, they quickly advanced to Royal Diamond. The

In front of the Racko dream home

R O YA L D I A M O N D

Nikken compensation plan teaches you how to build a proper structure for income, not just pin rank, asserts Alan. It is about making consistent income month after month. To Alan and Erika Racko, the Nikken lifestyle has meant the freedom to indulge their passion for travel, both business and pleasure. They have visited every continent, even Antarctica. They built their dream home in sunny Davie, Florida, including a custom backyard pool emblazoned with the Nikken logo. And when Erikas father became ill, she was able to travel abroad to see him. The ability to spend three months in Chile with her father before he passed away was a priceless comfort during a time of sorrow. The couple credits Nikken with bringing these wonderful opportunities within their grasp. They know that worker bees in the traditional business sector dont enjoy the same freedoms, and their gratitude is palpable.

been able to pay it forward by serving in their synagogue and through various charities. We have also been able to help others by teaching them about the 5 Pillars of Health, and showing them how to apply it to their lives. When people understand the concept of balance, they become very excited by the possibilities!

legacy
Moreover, Alan and Erika are building a legacy with their son Eli, who recently celebrated his 10th birthday. A bright fourth-grader and Nikken product user since birth, Eli may be Alan and Erika celebrating their son his parents best Elis 10th birthday advertisement for the remarkable technologies they promote. He loves Nikken products and volunteers his own testimonials when we have presentations, says his proud mom. He runs to find the products whenever he has any discomfort; he sleeps on the Kenko Sleep System every night and he refuses to drink anything other than PiMag water! Its only natural that Eli would follow his parents example. From the KenkoLight full-spectrum desk lamp to Kenzen Wellness nutritionals, Dad Alan relies on Nikken products every day. I drink about a gallon or more of PiMag water daily, and Im enjoying Kenzen Vital Balance. Asked about his favorite Nikken product, Alan demurs. Its hard to choose just one! Erika adds that the family never travels without their Kenko Naturest custom pillows. We also love the True Elements Swiss Organic Skin Care system and the Kenko MagFlex back pad. As hard as the Rackos have worked to earn the freedom they enjoy today, the journey would not have been the same without their focus on the 5 Pillars of Health. Wellness is about overall good health especially prevention. Its about taking care of the 5 Pillars of Health and creating balance in your life. Alan credits this approach with motivating the household in their goal setting in each of 5 Pillars, both individually and as a family. Nikken products helped Alan and Erika achieve physical wellness, while their advancement to the Royal Diamond rank has brought them more confidence and growth in all areas of life. They have continued taking business classes and reading books for personal enrichment and to further improve their skills. And the Rackos have

success strategy
The couples strategy can be summed up by this: Learn to focus on your prospects needs, and not your own; then show them how Nikken can help answer their needs. In practical terms, the Rackos have learned to build wide, identify their key leaders and help them build deep and strong organizations. We attribute our success to ABC: good Attitude, strong Belief and dedicated Commitment. We want to make a positive impact on the people we come in contact with and to live life to the fullest with integrity. As new Royal Diamond Consultants, Alan and Erika can enjoy even more of what Nikken has to offer. Alan looks forward to paying off the mortgage, as well as helping others to move up in the ranks and grow in the business. Im already talking to my leaders about planning their strategies to move from Diamond to Royal Diamond, and at all different levels, says Alan. I feel very blessed that Nikken came into my life when it did. It changed my life first physically and then financially. Its given us The Rackos with Luis Kasuga security and allowed us to build a family and make a difference in peoples lives. It gave me my wife, and our greatest gift yet: our son. For Erika, the future holds boundless possibilities in international expansion. I hope one day to help open Nikken in Chile, and share this opportunity with my family members, relatives and friends to build lines there and experience their own success, she enthuses. Indeed, Erika has already seen the loftiest of her original LifeCycle dreams come true. Its time to dream some bigger dreams for the entire Racko family.

rass roots farm girl. Unorthodox high school teacher. Rogue college professor. Now professional network marketer! Meet new Diamond Maggie McKee! Maggie explains, The farm in Ontario where I grew up had been in our family for three generations, but I thought the grass was greener away from home. So I went off to university for five years. Over the next 30 years, I taught high school and college, both in Canada and Australia. I loved teaching but something was missing more freedom, more balance and an opportunity to build a legacy just like we had on the farm. I had been dealing with a variety of health issues for about 30 years when my dear friend Carolyn discovered Nikken and shared it with me 18 years ago. She showed me the whole picture of the 5 Pillars of Health and described how all areas of our lives would benefit from the Nikken vision of Humans Being More. I was thrilled to find a solution for my health concerns but saw the other benefits as well. The Nikken opportunity afforded good reasons to travel throughout Canada including visits to family members in Vancouver and Ontario to share the products and opportunity. It is worth checking with your CPA about the legitimate tax advantages of being in business for yourself including deductions for business travel."

maggies original 5 Pillars


When I was first introduced to Nikken I was out of balance in all 5 Pillars. My body hurt 24/7 and that chronic discomfort naturally affected by mind. Consequently, I wasnt able to be my best in all my relationships, particularly with family. My contribution to society was as a

hospice volunteer but my role was greatly restricted because I had to go to work and couldnt keep vigil Son Duncan, granddaughter overnight Ellie and Daughter-in-law Deepi with folks who were dying. Although my teaching position gave me a decent income and great medical, dental and professional development benefits, I realized that retirement wasnt going to be rosy unless I developed a Plan B. Nikken became my creative retirement plan. During the first wellness preview I attended in late 1994, I heard several testimonials. I thought immediately of my dad when an older farmer said with the utmost sincerity that when I use Nikken products, I have more energy to go out to the barn. I was convinced Son Ians call to the BC Bar right from the beginning that Nikken could help not just me but everyone who embraced this revolutionary wellness concept. When I joined Nikken in February 1995, I only had a few hours a week to focus on Nikken. I was teaching full time and developing new courses for the college, a full-time post-grad student in another province and a hospice volunteer. I purchased a small inventory of product, became a student of network marketing,

DIAMOND

developed a list of 100 people and consistently made contacts whenever possible. Within a couple of months, I was free from discomfort and able to get out of bed in one smooth movement. Even when people laughed at the idea of using alternative products, I was unshaken because I had my own profound experience and was helping others.

The Journey to Diamond


What slowed me down at the beginning was that I didnt employ the ABC method. I lived 500 miles from my upline and was a lone ranger for the first two years. Once I involved my amazing support team, I was able to attain Silver. I now believe I would have reached that goal much faster had I used the ABC process from the beginning. From Silver, it took a year to reach Gold. We didnt have the Internet or conference lines, so my upline and I made a lot of daisy-chain calls to support people who showed intent to build the business. We shared stories, mentored people and grew quickly. When my part-time Nikken income surpassed my fulltime teaching one, I quit my job to become a full time Nikken consultant. Three years later, I reached Platinum and moved from Prince George to Vancouver.

making the mental shift


The longest leg of Maggies journey to Diamond was as a Platinum. She stayed at that rank for 10 years, learning how to shift her approach to where the success of others became more important than her own goals. Maggie affirms, I needed to learn what my role is, to be clear about my intentions (my why), to then do the work (the what), while surrendering the need to control the how. I have been blessed by many role models and mentors particularly my upline Rob Mason and Maggie at Nikken Royal Diamonds 35th Anniversary Global Celebration Michael DiMuccio, Dennis Estes and Reid Nelson. I have had wonderful support from crossline leaders and friends such as Julie Tara, Roxanne Rees and the late Dr. Rob Mason. I am forever grateful to my amazing team, especially my Platinum leaders Ona McDonald, Clarence Willson and Donna Dinh. My role is to be of service to others from a place of deep humility. That conscious intention has allowed me to become what I believe a Diamond Consultant truly is while my journey and growth continue.

the opportunity to jump from a 30-foot cliff into a frigid, fast moving river as a way of understanding the power of conviction and overcoming fear. That experience really laid the foundation for Maggie with grandchildren my clarity and resolve about becoming Diamond. At the May 2012 conference of Nikken leaders, I became part of a mastermind team of four Platinum women committed to supporting each other to Royal Diamond. It became clear to me that by becoming Diamonds and Royals, each of us raises the belief of others, especially women, in achieving these levels. This common goal helped me to focus on being part of something beyond self for the greater good! I am so grateful for my Mastermind buddies C J McCarthy, Peg Desrochers and Madeline Zaworski for their ongoing inspiration and support. In June 2012 Julie Tara came to Vancouver, as part of the strategy to identify and work with the three Silvers required for my business to reach Diamond. It was an amazing time of absolute clarity of intention, doing the work, letting go, surrendering and experiencing grace. Assistance also came from downline Silver George Lacerte who said, I just want to help take you to Diamond. Joy and deep gratitude filled my heart.

why nikken? what now?


After 18 years with Nikken, Maggie is more committed than ever. She makes a conscious choice every day to make a difference in the world. She says, Years ago, whenever Carolyn and I felt discouraged, we would call each other. All we needed to do was close our eyes, breathe deeply and imagine life without Nikken and, within seconds, we would be back on track. I still use that meditation to remind me of the value of Nikken in my life. Maggie avows, Staying close to the fire is essential, especially since we are all solopreneurs running our own businesses. I am a great believer in building communities by: daily contacting and inviting; weekly networking events, inhomes, vision calls, inner circle calls and mastermind calls; monthly trainings; quarterly expos; and annual events such as the leadership conference and the Nikken convention. My journey as a Nikken Consultant is about Humans Being More and who we are becoming. It is about raising consciousness and changing the world by expressing spirit through our thoughts, feelings and actions. I will continue on the Nikken journey because this is my true calling. This is the place where I can live consciously and experience unity of body, mind and spirit. This is where I can become the best person that I can possibly be.

We are healthier and stronger than we were 10 years ago! It is so fulfilling to share the products with people and see the improvement in their wellbeing. Sponsoring new Consultants and helping them achieve success is so exciting! Approaching people with the Nikken opportunity was a learning process. I have learned to respect the fact that not everyone is a good fit for Nikken. Ive learned to listen to what the person in front of me is really saying before I begin to introduce Nikken, the business opportunity and the products to them. I have attended Humans Being More training many times, and each time I learn so much about teamwork and goal setting. Silver and Gold training help me build my confidence in the business, and Consultant events like the Pathfinders conference and workshops offered at the annual Nikken Conventions are a valuable resource. On the weekly team calls with my Royal Diamond upline, Pat and Mac, I get to hear team members from all over the country share their ideas for success. The training and tips from Pat and Mac each week are also tremendously helpful.

NIKKEN AROUND THE WORLD


Turkey
Nikken Turkey has flourished since its 2006 launch, and the market unit recently celebrated its first Diamond leader. Nobel Razon is also a member of the Presidents Club and was awarded 2012 Consultant of the Year in Turkey. Local Nikkenites toasted their new Diamond with a festive cocktail party, where Nikken Turkeys sales manager Basak Sonmez congratulated the guest of honor and her sponsor Zohar Rothmann of Israel with the onstage presentation of her Diamond rank pin. Hot on Nobels heels, numerous up-and-coming leaders including Turkeys newest Silver, Gold and Platinum rank advancers were also recognized at the March event. Honorees promised to ride their momentum up to Diamond and beyond in the coming year.

australia
Royal Diamond couple Pat Terry and Mac McDonald celebrated another successful season with their Healthy Wealthy & Wise spring tour, hosted in partnership with Australian Platinum Consultant Joy Horton and with the support of local leaders and crossline teams. This March the annual event reached hundreds of new people in eight key locations down under, spanning New South Wales and Queensland from Melbourne to Brisbane. Affectionately known as The McTerrys, the twotime U.S. Consultants of the Year shared their invaluable insights for successful business building, along with powerful product testimonials theyve gathered along their journey. Event attendees enjoyed a special treat with the appearance of Nikken Technical Expert Dave Balzer, whose Australian debut included his signature product presentations, hailed as informative, enlightening and entertaining. A special Kenko Sleep System offer and prize drawings for free Kenko and PiMag products kept participants on the edge of their seats. Most exciting of all, numerous rank advancements were recognized along the way, including new Platinum and Silver achievers. Congratulations!

Royal Ambassador Wolfgang Sonnenburg of Germany gathered six rising downline leaders and their guests for a late-April visit to Nikken world headquarters in sunny Southern California. The day began with a group photo op to commemorate the occasion, marked by a special welcome message projected on the atrium Jumbotron. Warmly received by Nikken staff including International Relations Manager Ria Kendall and Nikken President & CEO Kurt Fulle, the visitors enjoyed light refreshments before assembling to hear Nikken technical expert Dave Balzer deliver an intriguing presentation on natural energies and technologies. The agenda included a guided tour of the Nikken headquarters building courtesy of Darold Merritt, director of customer service. Participants also enjoyed an opportunity to browse and shop in the Nikken company store, followed by a VIP lunch at 21 Oceanfront, a swanky seafood eatery overlooking beautiful Newport Beach.

WELLNESS TREND CORNER


Focus on water quality

This is your water on drugs


An investigation conducted by the Associated Press has once again highlighted the presence of pharmaceuticals in the nations water supplies, described in their recent report. The group commissioned testing of municipal water systems for 24 major U.S. metropolitan areas, and detected antibiotics, hormones, mood stabilizers and other widely-prescribed drugs. The amounts are generally small and local utility companies contend that the water is safe, yet experts from private organizations and government authorities answer that they cannot say for certain whether these substances may pose a risk to health. (WebMd, April 6, 2o13.)

promoting an increase in lean muscle mass. Supplemental HGH is illegal to obtain without a prescription, but exercise and hot showers help the body to produce it in safe amounts naturally. (healthguidance.org, undated.)

chlorine substitutes no better for health?


Many communities have modified their water disinfecting procedures, eliminating the practice of adding chlorine and using chloramine instead. The change was instituted because chloramine does not create the byproducts of chlorine that are known to be potentially toxic. But chloramine is not without risk; it produces nitrosamines. David Sedlak, of the department of civil and environmental engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, noted that nitrosamines are what people warned you about when they told you you shouldnt be eating those nitrite-cured hot dogs. He adds that these may be more hazardous than the disinfection products that wed been worried about with regular old chlorine. Sedlak concludes by saying that although there are good reasons to avoid chlorine, an alternative chemical in drinking water may bring its own problems. (npr.org, January 7, 2011.)

Possible link between pesticides, food allergies


Allergic reactions to common foods have been on the rise, notably in incidents involving children. A study indicates that water contaminated by agricultural insect-control products may be responsible. As published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, a team of researchers led by Elina Jerschow, M.D., found that dichlorophenols have been connected with allergic response. Dr. Jerschow explained that the compound can possibly weaken food tolerance in some people, causing food allergy. This chemical is . . . found in pesticides used by farmers and consumer insect and weed control products, as well as tap water. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the decade between 1997 and 2007 nationwide food allergy increased by 18%. (Medical News Today, December 3, 2012.)

shower filters: even better than expected


Over the years, home shower filters have been gaining in popularity. One factor that may have encouraged this movement is a list of the many positive aspects of these filters, compiled by an independent water-quality organization in 2004. Among these: Airborne chlorine in an unfiltered shower elevates the level of ambient chloroform in the rest of the house. (Its estimated that more water contaminants are released into household air by the shower than from any other source.) Because of the vaporizing effect, chemicals in unfiltered shower steam are also in a higher concentration than in the water. Inhaled chemicals enter the bloodstream more quickly than if they were ingested by drinking. And reducing the liquid chlorine in shower water results in smoother, less irritated and younger-looking skin. (allaboutwater.org, 2004.)

why taking a shower is good for you


Although a few self-appointed health experts advocate a cold shower as providing many benefits (perhaps in building character?), most authorities agree that showering in hot water can have positive physical effects. A hot shower opens the pores of the skin, for cleansing and detoxifying. Hot water can stimulate the release of certain hormones, including those which support wound healing and cell rebuilding. It can also encourage the release of human growth hormone, which is favored by bodybuilders for

AN EFFERVESCENT EXPERIENCE!
PiMag MicroJet Shower System

hat do bubbles have to do with a shower? Theres more than soapsuds or shampoo involved here. It turns out that water bubbles make a difference in how clean a shower can be. A scientific discovery regarding the nature of water bubbles was the inspiration for a technology built into the new PiMag MicroJet Shower System. Bubbles are part of the story but as with any Nikken innovation, theres more to the MicroJet than one feature alone. For a good shower you need to start with cleaner water and ideally, water that does not contain a high level of chlorine. This powerful disinfectant is good for killing germs but most of us would rather not drink it. It is a surprise for many to learn that avoiding chlorinated drinking water solves only half the problem. While bathing in a shower, chlorine is absorbed through the skin and inhaled as water vapor. From the lungs it passes directly into the bloodstream. Nikken is a leader in offering shower systems that reduce chlorine, and the MicroJet system uses the reduction/oxidation process to help neutralize chlorine without chemicals. It converts free-radical chlorine to neutral chlorides. In the MicroJet, Nikken has added AirInduction Technology a patent-pending design element that injects air into the shower stream for more effective operation. Air-Induction Technology creates a higher air-to-water ratio, which decreases surface tension and resistance. Because water passes out the showerhead more freely, water pressure is also maintained without requiring a higher flow rate. Carbon and mineral filters in the MicroJet reduce other contaminants, including dirt, sediment and odors. In all, its the cleanest water youll probably ever experience in a shower. Where the bubbles come in: the MicroJet showerhead has nozzles that release streams of microbubbles within the water flow. Soap, detergent or shampoo work on the surface-active principle that is, these cleaning agents tend to adhere to the surface of a bubble, which provides the point of

contact between the agent and dirt. A lot of small bubbles maximize this surface area. More contact means deeper and more effective cleansing. All bubbles contain oxygen molecules. Microbubbles stay intact longer than large ones, so the oxygen is released directly at the contact point, where an oxygen reaction helps to penetrate the buildup of deposits on skin and hair, leaving them feeling fresh, clean and soft. Water can soak beneath the surface for natural moisturizing. Microbubbles are normally created using laboratory apparatus, where they have been studied extensively for use in various applications. The MicroJet Shower System represents a design breakthrough that puts this bubble stream in your shower. As a custom shower solution, the MicroJet Shower System is available in two models. A wall-mount unit replaces a conventional showerhead. The new MicroJet Hand Shower features a shower nozzle attached to a flexible steel tube, with a bracket that allows this model to be used either as a hand-held shower or placed in its wallmount fitting. Both models are compatible with standard plumbing fixtures and can be installed in minutes. With chlorine neutralizing, natural filtration, pi and magnetic technology and now, micro cleansing the PiMag MicroJet Shower System provides not only a cleaner shower but a more refreshing and more complete part of your personal care regimen. Itll make you feel clean and bubbly all day.

what do microbubbles look like?


In laboratory and industrial applications, water containing microbubbles often appears to be cloudy or white. This water is charged with bubbles under extremely high pressure, which is not suitable for personal use and will damage household plumbing.
NI KK E N | S U MM E R 20 1 3

This foamy layer produced under high pressure will not saturate a surface well and is not as effective for cleaning and moisturizing as the microbubbles formed by PiMag MicroJet Shower System nozzles.

KENZEN VITAL BALANCE TESTIMONIALS


Nothing else worked for me, so I gave Kenzen Vital Balance a try. After three weeks I have lost six pounds and my clothes fit so much better!
Maria Hena Dominguez, Platinum | Miami

This is much more satisfying than other shake mixes I have tried. With the others, when I drank them for breakfast the effect wore off before noon. I would crash and then get more energy from candy or caffeine. I don't need this with Kenzen Vital Balance. No energy crash, more mental alertness, better mood, and I lost ten pounds in one month. It even saves me money Kenzen Vital balance costs less than what I was paying for a combination of food and those energy pick-me-ups.
Jeremy Greco, Senior | Texas

Kenzen Vital Balance is fantastic. I have felt more energy (and I have lots naturally), no cravings, no mid-afternoon hunger, no lag or energy drop, no bloating, more alertness, improved overall well being and after using it for a little more than a week Im four pounds lighter.
Chris Weigert, Senior | Utah

I drink one or two shakes a day, made with water. I don't feel hungry, have an increased feeling of energy, sleep better, think my memory is improved and without working out I have lost 22 pounds! Thats three pants sizes for me.
Kristina Lehr, Silver | Texas

Ive dropped 21 pounds in a month and a half! My energy level is higher, with no hunger sometimes I have to remind myself to eat lunch.
Richard Estes, Silver | Utah

Drinking a Kenzen Vital Balance shake usually twice a day for one month, Ive lost eight pounds, its increased my mobility (less weight on my knees) and I dont feel my 95 years the way I did before.
Martha Sue Yeary, Platinum | Texas

Kenzen Vital balance tastes great and we both feel mentally energized, and wake up more alert. Pat lost weight and Mac slimmed down by one belt notch.

ITS ALL ABOUT ENERGY


By Barbara Satterwhite RN
Barbara Satterwhite is a retired registered nurse. She was educated in Canada, worked 29 years at the Medical College of VA Hospitals/Virginia Commonwealth University. Has been with Nikken, as an Independent Consultant, for 16 years.
nergy. What is it? How do we get it? How does it affect us? We are a mass of energy. Every cell in our body produces energy. So why are we so tired, drained, feeling like we have none? Our bodies, given the right environment, have an abundance of energy and we feel good. So what are some of the things contributing to our lack of energy and why we hurt more? Lack of quality water, air, sleep and nutrition impact our energy and health.

The good, the bad, the ugly


Our bodies are electrical magnetic fields that rely on natural energies, water, nutrition and sleep to survive. Some elements, like manmade electrical fields, interfere with the proper working of our bodies. Being outside can make us feel better. The earth is a big magnet. All life forms, humans, plants and animals, could not survive without magnetic earth. the good natural energies of the earth (magnetism), sun (infrared), air (negative ions) are all around us and abundant. Healthy food, water and air are available. the Bad we live, work and play in buildings that block natural energies and are air tight. We have many conveniences that make staying inside pleasurable. We live fast paced, stressful lives. We dont sleep well or get enough sleep. We are exposed to a sea of toxicity. We lack good water, air and nutritious whole foods. the ugly - we are exposed to an incredible amount of man made electrical magnetic fields (EMFs) that interfere with our bodys natural magnetic fields. Children are growing up in a sea of radiofrequency radiation that has never existed in human history.* The normal electrical fields of our appliances in our homes are mild, compared to the now high frequencies of wireless WIFI, smart phones, and smart meters installed by utility companies.

what if there was a solution?


there is. NIKKEN is a company that has been providing products that replicate the earths natural energies for almost 40 years. Nikken addresses the vital elements of life: sleep, water, air, nutrition, light and energy. The products provide an environment for our bodies to function optimally. sleep It is the most important element of our health, during which the body regenerates, so if you arent getting quality sleep, you often wake up more tired than when you went to bed. Found only in the Nikken Kenko Sleep System, the technology is a combination of features that work together to enable better sleep, provide more rest and
*Cell phones, Radiation & Your Childs Health; healthychild.org/blog/comments

assist the processes of physical and mental recharging that form the basis of sleep. It includes magnetic energy, a massaging surface, far-infrared fibers and more. Addressing factors such as support and temperature regulation are crucial to enjoying sleep that is healthy and restorative. air Indoor air is more polluted than outside air because of our carpets, paint, cleaners, etc. There are so many children and adults with an increasing number of respiratory related challenges. If you are not filtering your air, your lungs are the filter. The Nikken Air Wellness Technology combines multistage filtration, including a state-of-the-art ULPA filter, negative-ion generation and a unique system that operates without producing ozone. water If you are not filtering your water, your kidneys are. Water is an essential part of our electrical bodies, so make sure it is safe, healthy, alkalinizing water. Nikken PiMag Water Technology begins with a high-tech, multiple-stage filtration system based on natural materials to clean water without chemicals. It adds Nikken magnetic technology and ceramic elements that impart minerals to produce pi water, known in Asia for decades as the water of life. nutrition The internal fuel that supplies energy. It is no secret that our food is lacking the nutrition it once had due to mineral depleted soils, fast growing practices, processed food, fast food, etc. Nikken Kenzen Wellness OrganicBased Whole food Nutrition is designed to bring the daily diet closer to nature. Each ingredient in the program is carefully selected and, where possible, the organic content is maximized. energy Our energy is depleted with the incredible amount of manmade electrical frequencies that surround us: stress, dehydration, lack of quality sleep and poor nutrition. When you sleep, walk, sit, using magnetic and far-infrared products, drink PiMag water, breathe good air and eat good nutrition, you enhance your energy and experience less physical challenges. you can create an environment for you and your family to counteract the toxic world we live in and optimize your ability to feel better. nikken has the answers. to become aware of our toxic world, go to: http://awakeupstory.healthychild.org/ nikken is a trusted Partner of healthy Child healthy world Chesterfield Women's Journal magazine 888.213.0612, Reprinted with Permission

Growing up with Nikken


By Mac Kenna Rogers, age 14

What is it like to grow up in a Nikken home? This question has been asked of me since I was a little girl, but I never have been able to answer it in a way that satisfies what Nikken really is. My dad has been with Nikken for 20 years, so me being only 14, I have never known anything different. I have always taken Jade GreenZymes in the morning and I am constantly being reminded to wear my PowerBand bracelets. I dont think I would have it any other way, because Nikken has given me the opportunity of a lifetime. I have had the opportunity to travel the world to 32 countries and grow in leadership skills that I use every day. Everyone can say that their dad has a great job; My dad is a firefighter and he saves people! or My dad is a dentist and he makes people smile, but I have always said Yeah, my dad works for himself. Though I receive funny looks and laughs, my dad is always there. When I come home from school he asks me how my day was; during a volleyball game I almost always look up and see him in the stands. If hes not able to make a

game, he always makes an extra effort to ask how I did. Whenever we want to just watch a movie, he is always there to enjoy some 80s action classic or a superhero movie. Thats why Nikken is great. Yes the products are amazing, but the time and fun I get with my family is priceless. I know that my dad will continue in the business of wellness technologies, and though I may not pursue the business myself, I know I will use the products and keep the memories for the rest of my life. After all, because the Humans Being More philosophy impacted my family, Ive been given the best 14 years that I could ever imagine.

The daughter of Nikken Diamond Consultants Vance & Stacey Rogers, Mac Kenna was the subject of the article Old Enough to Care: Contributing to a Healthy Society, published in the January 2010 issue of Living Well magazine (now published under the Nikken Family magazine banner).
