Having Vision

Nicki Edgell

There is no fate, no chance, no destiny, that can circumvent, hinder or control, the firm resolve of a determined soul.                         

Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

This sounds wonderful and empowering doesn’t it? The thought of being so resolute and so determined. And yet, so many of us feel these types of emotions in the same way we experience a gentle breeze or the picking up of an aromatic smell.  They waft into the inner chambers of our soul like a seductive scent to titillate the senses and then evaporate after only a moment of enticement. We have a brush with inspiration, a handshake with destiny’s call, but often fail to enjoy its full embrace.

Defining Your Compelling Vision

It’s been said that character is the ability to carry out a decision long after the emotion of the decision has passed.  We can be quick to beat ourselves up for lack of discipline and blame ourselves for being not good enough but that may only perpetuate the problem.

You want great results, right? You want more conviction, correct?  Please understand this important truth: When we have a vision of what we can become, then our desire and our power to act increases enormously. Please read that statement again!  When we have a vision of what we can become, then our desire and our power to act increases enormously.

Running your own business necessitates you being in the driver’s seat to get to where you want to go. No one else is going to take you there.

If it’s going to be - it’s up to me!

127 Hours

Few will ever have the kind of crisis that motivated Aron Ralston.  While he was hiking in a remote canyon in southern Utah, an 800-pound rock shifted suddenly and trapped his right arm. For five lonely days he struggled to free himself. When he was about to give up and accept death, he had a vision of a three-year-old boy running toward him and being scooped up with his left arm.

Understanding this as a vision of his future son, and an assurance that he could still live, Ralston summoned the courage necessary to take the drastic action that could save his life. He broke the two bones in his trapped right arm; then cut off his own arm with a multitool knife.  He then hiked five miles for help. What an example of the power of an overwhelming desire! 

Most of us will never face such an extreme crisis, but all of us face potential snares that could prevent progress towards our destiny and dreams. If our healthy desires and ambitions are sufficiently intense, they will motivate us to cut ourselves free from the problems and obstacles that prevent our progress.

When we have a vision of what we can become, then our desire and our power to act increases enormously!

Our invitation to each of us today is that we remind ourselves of who we really are and what we really can become. We know that this knowledge can propel us towards our destiny with great enthusiasm.  Let’s partner on this together!

Thank you to Nikken leaders Ben Woodward and Dave Johnson for this post.

Japanese Takeaways

Nicki Edgell
The amazing Inari temple in Kyoto
In addition to the regular compensation plan Nikken offers extra incentives to consultants. One of these has just seen me take part in an all expenses paid "Team Kaizen" trip to Japan, the original home of Nikken.

Nikken was founded in 1975 in Fukuoka, Japan, by Isamu Masuda who, driven by the need to care for his handicapped son, invented the magnetic insoles that are still a mainstay of the business today. Masuda coined the Five Pillars of Health philosophy which underpins everything Nikken does: Healthy Body, Mind, Family, Society and Finances.

Although Nikken Inc. now has its HQ in the US the company aims to visit Japan every few years in order to honour its formation and to give consultants a chance to experience Japanese culture and the people's philosophy of service. This was certainly the case where I was constantly humbled by the people's helpfulness and politeness everywhere I went. At each hotel on the tour lines of staff would stand and bow. If I stopped for a moment and looked confusingly at a metro map a young student with perfect English would offer help. Tokyo is preparing for the Olympics in 2020 and the people's friendliness and the efficiency of their transport systems will ensure a successful event.

To travel to Japan means learning about the roots of our company and its culture, its philosophy, and respect for nature.
Luis Kasuga, General Manager, Nikken Latin America

This trip, as well as various other annual events, is also a chance to reconnect with old colleagues and meet new friends, to revive one's purpose, to get inspired and set intentions for the year ahead. To be surrounded by so many positive and successful partners serves to propel you on to the next level of your Nikken journey. Big decisions are made at these big events.

Lake Ashi, Hakone
The trip was primarily a holiday and a reward for good work but there are inevitably chances to talk business and share best practices. By forging lasting relationships with international colleagues chances for collaboration and sharing business arise.

The team ride the bullet train
The network marketing model is one of collaborative entrepreneurship. Although we all have our own teams, by sharing information about what works well the global Nikken family is able to "grow the overall size of the pie". In practice this translates, for example, to a colleague in Canada passing an enquiry from a UK resident to me or a Mexican business leader appearing on one of my webinar's to pass on knowledge and inspiration to my team.

With Paulina Villela from Mexico City  
Another takeaway from the trip was the number of different ways one can be successful at the Nikken business - for instance through online retail or through building a network, or a combination of both. The Nikken business leaders are drawn from all sorts of different characters - it is certainly not the case that you have to be an outgoing extrovert in the stereotypical salesman mould.

Why is Nikken Water Good For You?

Nicki Edgell
"The healthiest water on the planet"  Dr. G. Lindner
  • It hydrates you - 75% of us are typically dehydrated.
  • You can absorb the water better. This is demonstrated by you not feeling the water sitting heavy in your stomach like you do if you drink a glass of tap water. You also do not wee it straight out like you do with normal water.
  • The water energises your cells.
  • The water is alkaline with a ph of approx. 8-9 (most bottled, and Britta, water is acidic - less than ph7, most tap water is ph neutral, around ph7) - acidic diets can contribute towards many health problems such as osteoporosis and diabetes.
  • The all-in-one multi-stage filter removes contaminates present in tap water - these include heavy metals, pesticides, and chlorine (see below *).
  • The filter removes between 60-65% of any fluoride in tap water.
  • Most alternative filtration systems take out good stuff aswell as the bad leaving pure, clean, but "dead" water.
  • The Nikken filter adds essential minerals and electrolytes - magnesium, potassium, calcium, manganese and sodium.
  • Many filtration systems waste alot of water - very bad for the environment and your water rates! The Nikken Pimag Filter uses 100% of the tap water.
  • The Nikken filter is a countertop model - no plumbing required, quick and easy straight out the box.
  • It is also therefore relatively portable and can be moved around the kitchen or house or office, or even taken on holiday.
  • Very good flow rates - much quicker than many alternative brands. The system's 5 litre tank will refill in a matter of minutes.
  • Very good filter replacement rates - the filter is good for 900 litres (for a family of 4 using the system for all their drinking and cooking needs this will usually translate to about 3 months).
  • The water has antioxidant properties (demonstrated by improved Oxidation Reduction Potential - the ORP - over tap water and bottled water).
  • The water is oxygenated.
  • The water is ionised.
  • The Nikken water systems use special BPA-free non leaching plastics.
  • The water activates your thirst mechanism which is normally suppressed or misinterpreted (often as hunger). The more Nikken water you drink the more you want! This helps rehydrate you quickly. Try it!
  • The light velvety water tastes great - you will not enjoy tap water after tasting Nikken water.
  • Drinking lots of Nikken water will fill you up making you feel like eating less (thus being an advantage as part of a weight management diet).
  • At £372 (+ p&p) for the unit plus £36 for replacement filters the Nikken system is one of the cheapest home water filtration solutions on the market. The replacement filters run at approximately 4p/litre on average, considerably cheaper than buying in bottled water.
  • Tested and verified by the Water Quality Association of America with "Gold Seal Approval".


How does it do these things?


The Nikken PiMag Waterfall system aims to convert tap water into natural spring water.

The water system contains a multi stage single filter which extracts harmful materials and adds beneficial minerals.

The water flows over a bed of mineral stones which serve to replicate a natural mountain stream.

A 1,200 gauss magnet energises and conditions the water.
Pi water was originally discovered by Japanese scientists in the 1970s. Observation had suggested that the water from an isolated hillside stream had a remarkable effect on the plant life in the area. The scientists examined the environment and found that it contained an unusual collection of topographical features. The surrounding hills contained magnetite and calcium. The watercourse flowed over silicates, the material that forms natural crystal. The water from it was found to have an atypical combination of minerals, and was naturally alkaline. Duplicating these conditions in the laboratory resulted in a form of this “pi water.”
Through these processes the structure of the Nikken water matches the hexagonal shape of nature (like a snowflake) and forms in microclusters so the water molecules can be absorbed easily into our cells.   Tap water molecules are much more difficult for the body to process before absorption for a number of reasons; they are clumped together and contain a different mineral content to nature's water, they contain heavy metals and other contaminants that the body needs to filter first before absorbing. Your liver is essentially doing the job the Nikken filter does. This is why we tend to pee more when we drink lots of tap water.

* In tests The Nikken PiMag Water Filter showed the following percentage reductions versus UK tap water: Arsenic 68%, Cadmium 87%, Chromium 90%, Lead 91%, Copper 87%, Nickel 83%, Aluminium 95%, Iron 73%, Mercury 96%, Chlorine 90%, Metaldehyde (pesticide) 84%, Organophosorus (pesticides) 61-97%, Acidics 70-94%, Urons 62-90%, Organochlorine (insecticides) 90-99%, Triazines (herbicides) 66-76%, Chlormequat (plant growth regulator) 72%, Trihalomethanes (THM's) / Solvents 72-95%, Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH) 80-86%, Phosphorus 91%, Glyphosate (herbicide) 80%.

The Importance of Momentum

Nicki Edgell

Many of our Nikken Partners are over-the-top enthusiastic as the month of March was their biggest month ever!  One reason is our new policy change where ALL retail product orders including personal retail orders count towards rank advancement and leadership qualification.  This is a very big deal that will change everything!  Combining this with the special Waterfall offer (£117 off this month) is a recipe for accelerated growth!

It’s going to get even better when our new IT system is implemented.  The whole plan is to be rolled out during the Orlando Leadership Summit

If you want to develop wealth, the way to do it is through your own business.

The moment you view yourself as a business owner, everything will change for you.  Imagine waking up each day excited about the future you are building for yourself and your loved ones.  Whether March was ‘your best month ever’ -or not quite... get around those leaders who are ‘momentum makers’ and do what they’re doing.

Let’s keep the momentum going.  Follow up with those people who bought waterfalls, thank them for their business, ask them if they are sharing the water with their friends.  Who might they know who would enjoy delicious healthy water?  Are there other products they would be interested in such as Jade Greenzymes or the Cocoon?  Every business loves referrals!

Leaders are Momentum Makers! 

"Momentum is a leader’s best friend.  Many times the only difference between winning and losing is momentum.  Emotions are contagious – the more powerful the emotion the more contagious it is.  Think in terms of the furious jubilation at any sports event or a battle cry at the front line of an advance.  The quicker that emotion can transmit from one person to another, the more the idea will spread.John Maxwell

Group Momentum Starts with Personal Momentum


  • Understand the value of momentum.
  • Figure out what the motivating factors are and push those buttons. What do you cry about?What do you sing about? What do you dream about?
  • Remove the de-motivating factors and demotivating people – get rid of the negative stuff.
  • Protect Momentum!  It’s easier to keep the ball rolling than starting a ball from a standstill.
  • Recognize and honour people who carry the ball forward.
  • Schedule times for celebration.
All leaders have the ability to create a sense of urgency, to get people to act on the things they need to act upon.  Creating a feeling to move, to act now…

The only way I can create a sense of urgency in your life, is to have it in my life.  I’ve never known a lazy person, or a procrastinator, who created a sense of urgency in another’s life.  It’s an urgent person who creates urgency….

So what are you urgent about?  What are you passionate about that you really want to make sure it happens, so you make sure you get to it so you can make it happen?  Whatever that is… that’s urgency!

"If you have it within you, then you can pass it onto others." John Kotter

Save Your Skin, Save The Planet

Nicki Edgell

If what you put inside your body is important you should also consider what you put on your skin too. Many cosmetic beauty products are produced in laboratories and still contain chemicals and skin irritants including parabens (preservatives) and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLSs). The foaming agents in toothpastes and aluminium salts in anti-perspirants contain hidden ingredients that are toxic to the body. Some are probable or known human carcinogens.

60% of anything you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body and ends up in your system.

The skin is our largest organ. It is a barrier to pathogenic threats and at the same time helps eliminate toxins and to regulate our temperature. But the heavy use of synthetics in personal care products strips our skin of its natural defences and gives rise to issues like eczema and asthma.

8 million people in the UK have a form of skin disease and almost 1 in 2 at least one allergy. 

Cosmetic products are also bad for the planet with both the chemicals from our bathing being flushed into our water systems and the physical waste caused by the plastic containers. There is currently a lot in the news about the pollution of our seas highlighted by the recent BBC Blue Planet II. 

A third of fish caught off the coast of South West England and 100% of oysters and mussels from Northern France contain traces of plastic.

Many products are known to contain microbeads which are manufactured minute solid petrochemical plastic particles used in exfoliating personal care products, toothpastes, and in biomedical and health-science research.

It is estimated that at present wastage rates the sea will contain more plastic than fish by 2050.


Use Genuine Organic Skincare Products


Nikken's True Elements® Marine Organic Skin Care is a complete line of products that are derived from seaweed types abundant in natural minerals. These are well absorbed by skin and in combination the different ingredients can work synergistically to offer remarkable benefits.

Harvested from a UNESCO world biosphere reserve, the seaweeds are grown naturally and sustainably to respect the environment. The ingredients are extracted within 24 hours close-by on the shore using the latest specialist technology to protect the plants from damage during harvesting, and to ensure that all the active elements are retained to nourish and enhance your skin for a truly premium experience.

A vital part of great-looking skin is hydration, in which seaweed excels. All of the True Elements range contain specific formulations of enriching marine extracts that help naturally stimulate skin cells to absorb more water, keeping your skin looking nourished and fresh 24 hours a day – perfect for use with Nikken’s PiMag® water systems for drinking and showering.

True Elements is certified organic by Ecocert, a distinction that very few products — even those labelled as “organic” — can claim. This provides a level of assurance important to consumers who understand that skin care is also health care.

Nikken skincare range is certified free from:

• GMOs
• Mineral Oils
• Parabens
• Phthalates
• Phenoxyethanol
• PEG
• EDTA
• Synthetic colorings
• Synthetic fragrances



Protect Your Water Supply 


Nikken produces a drinking water filter and a shower unit to ensure both the water you drink and that which you absorb through your skin while showering is pure and clean.

Tiny pieces of plastic have been found in over 90% of the world’s most popular bottled water brands.

The Nikken drinking water filter, the Pimag Waterfall, is on special sale in our European and US markets until 30th April 2018:

Luis Kasuga - General Director Nikken Latin America

Nicki Edgell
The following is extracted from an interview with the General Manager of Nikken Latin America, Luis Kasuga, first published at the Direct Marketing website www.businessforhome.org

He talks about how Nikken is enjoying unprecedented growth in Central and South America which will be cemented by the introduction of an integrated international website later this year.

25 Years of Nikken in South America


"This year we will celebrate our 25th Anniversary in style; in fact, our celebration in style already began with a very successful 2017. Our growth in sales and sign-ups was 40% and 52%, respectively.

"We have had a record-breaking year in moving-up-in-rank and in the number of high bonuses paid. In total, we closed 2017 with 90 new Platinum, 28 new Diamond and 14 new Royal Diamond consultants.

Nikken's New Compensation Plan


"Our new compensation plan is much easier to explain, results are achieved much more quickly, it’s more dynamic and more fun, while at the same time we ensure the integrity and sustainability which have always been our trademark.

Reaching New Generations


"Something that is very important and gives us great peace of mind and confidence is the number of both male and female millennials that moved up in rank. We had been trying to get the attention of new generations and I am sure we are attaining this goal through our compensation plan and our wellness home and office concept.

"Today, we are fortunate to have in our business four generations that together share the benefits of our products, the great potential of our Nikken business and the amazing challenge of continuing to invite more and more people to know, discover and achieve a balanced life based on our 5 Pillars of Health.

Nikken's New Products


"We know we still have a long way to go. We will travel this road led by the firm hand of our leaders from North America, Europe, and Latin America. We plan to introduce nutritional products based on natural super foods and products based on wellness technologies, as well as to enhance our incentives to make it even more attractive for people to join our business.

Digital Advancement


"We also plan to have a broader presence in the digital world. In fact, one of our biggest projects is to harmonize our IT platform worldwide. With this new foundation, we will very soon renew our projects to continue to expand our business to additional countries.

"During our Diamond Seminar in the Rainforest of Panama last November, Diamond and Royal Diamond Nikken consultants from several countries got together to unify the mission and the message they want to share with the world. This year they have undertaken an international agenda of activities in virtual platforms to share their vision and experience with thousands of people.

Kaizen Leadership Team Trip to Japan


"Meanwhile, on May 19th of this year we will be celebrating in Mexico City Nikken’s 25th anniversary in Latin America. Afterwards we will commemorate this anniversary by travelling to Japan with the winners of the 2017/2018 Kaizen contest.

"For us, to travel to Japan means learning about the roots of our company and its culture, its philosophy, and respect for nature. During this trip we will visit the city of Hiroshima, where we will present an offering of 1,000 origami cranes representing our wish to join in world peace during a ceremony at the Children’s Peace Monument."


Join The Team

17 Buenas Razones para Beber Agua Nikken

Nicki Edgell

Ahora es bien sabido y aceptado que la cantidad de agua que consume todos los días juega un papel importante en el mantenimiento de un cuerpo sano: los expertos recomiendan beber de 8 a 10 vasos (aproximadamente 2 litros) de agua por día para mantener una buena salud.

Esto tiene que ser agua pura. Los tés, los cafés, el agua carbonatada, las bebidas gaseosas y los jugos de fruta no cuentan: el cuerpo ve cualquier bebida como la comida y la trata de manera completamente diferente al agua. Además, muchos tienen un alto contenido de cafeína y azúcar, son ácidos y en realidad se deshidratan, por lo que se logra exactamente lo contrario de lo que pretendes hacer con el agua.

Pero no toda el agua es igual, ¿qué agua deberíamos beber? ¿El agua del grifo está demasiado llena de contaminantes? ¿El agua embotellada o mineral es una mejor alternativa? ¿O debería invertir en un sistema de filtración de agua en el hogar y, de ser así, de qué tipo?

El sistema de filtro de agua de la empresa de bienestar japonesa Nikken se inspira en las corrientes frescas de Japón, donde los beneficios del agua mineral de manantial, rica en minerales, se conocen desde hace siglos. Esta es la idea detrás de Nikken Pimag® Waterfall que busca recrear el agua pura natural de manantial en su hogar a un costo económico. Siga leyendo para descubrir 17 buenas razones por las que creemos que el agua de Nikken debería ser su agua potable preferida:
"El agua más saludable del planeta".

  1. El agua Nikken Pimag® es particularmente eficiente para hidratarte: los humanos generalmente deben estar compuestos de alrededor del 70% de agua (y más en el cerebro), pero el 75% de nosotros normalmente está deshidratado. Muchos síntomas de malestar son los mismos que los síntomas de la deshidratación y, en lugar de estar fundamentalmente enfermos, una persona puede estar deshidratada.
  2. El agua Nikken está energizada, estructurada y condicionada por un sistema magnético y de filtrado único que ayuda a su absorción por las células del cuerpo. Esto se demuestra por no sentir el agua pesada en su estómago como lo hace generalmente si toma un vaso de agua corriente. Esta absorción mejorada también significa que no se adelgazará como lo hace con el agua normal.
  3. El agua Nikken activa su mecanismo de sed que normalmente se suprime o se malinterpreta (a menudo como hambre). Mientras más agua Nikken bebas, ¡más quieres! Esto además ayuda a rehidratarte rápidamente. ¡Intentalo!
  4. Este estímulo para beber más y más agua no solo te rehidratará, sino que te llenará y satisfará tu "hambre", por lo que será muy útil como parte de una dieta de control de peso.
  5. El agua es alcalina con un pH de aprox. 8-9 (más embotellada, y Britta, el agua es ácida, menos que ph7, y la mayoría del agua del grifo es ph neutra, alrededor de ph7), las dietas ácidas pueden contribuir a muchos problemas de salud como la osteoporosis y la diabetes. El agua alcalina puede ayudar a contribuir a un mejor equilibrio corporal al contrarrestar el aumento de la acidez de nuestra dieta moderna.

    Ácido a alcalino: el pH (l a r) respectivamente del agua con sabor, el agua con gas, el agua embotellada y el Nikken Pimag

    1. El filtro multi-etapa todo en uno elimina los contaminantes típicamente presentes en el agua del grifo, que incluyen metales pesados, pesticidas y cloro. Dos tercios de flúor también se eliminan.
    2. La mayoría de los sistemas de filtración alternativos eliminan los buenos minerales y los malos dejando agua pura, limpia pero "muerta". El sistema Nikken agrega minerales esenciales como magnesio, potasio, calcio, manganeso y sodio.

    3. Muchos sistemas de filtración desperdician mucha agua, ¡muy perjudicial para el medioambiente y las facturas de agua! El filtro Nikken Pimag usa el 100% del agua del grifo.
    4. El filtro Nikken es un modelo de encimera: no se requieren plomería y el sistema es rápido y fácil de usar directamente desde la caja, con una superficie de trabajo pequeña. Por lo tanto, también es relativamente portátil y se puede mover por la cocina, la casa, la oficina o incluso durante las vacaciones.

    5. Nikken Waterfall es un sistema alimentado por gravedad con buenas tasas de flujo, mucho más rápido que muchas marcas alternativas. El tanque de 5 litros del sistema se rellenará en cuestión de minutos.
    6. El sistema tiene muy buenas tasas de reemplazo de filtros: el filtro durará 900 litros (para una familia de 4 personas que usa el sistema para todas sus necesidades de consumo y cocción, esto generalmente se traducirá en aproximadamente 3 meses).
    7. El agua Nikken está oxigenada y ionizada de forma natural (sin electrólisis artificial). El agua tiene propiedades antioxidantes, como lo demuestra una lectura mejorada del potencial de reducción de la oxidación, el ORP, sobre agua del grifo y agua embotellada.
    8. Los sistemas de agua Nikken utilizan plásticos biodegradables no lixiviantes sin BPA.
    9. Con US$419 para la unidad y US$27 por los filtros de repuesto, el sistema Nikken es una de las soluciones de filtración de agua doméstica más baratas del mercado. Los filtros de reemplazo funcionan a aproximadamente 4 c / litro en promedio, considerablemente más barato que comprar agua embotellada.
    10. El agua Nikken también puede obtenerse de cualquier grifo cuando está fuera de casa a través de la botella Nikken Pimag, excelente para viajar, incluidos los aeropuertos.
    11. El sistema ha sido probado y verificado por la Water Quality Association of America obteniendo la "Aprobación de Sello de Oro".
    12. Y por último, y por supuesto, ¡no menos importante, el agua aterciopelada tiene un sabor excelente! No disfrutará del agua del grifo después de probar el agua Nikken. ¡Ven a una demostración de Nikken cerca de ti y prueba un poco!

    When Do We Need Calcium?

    Nicki Edgell
    Calcium is one of the most important minerals for the human body. It helps to form and maintain healthy teeth and bones. By maintaining a proper level of calcium in the body over a lifetime, we can help prevent osteoporosis. In addition, calcium is used throughout the body to help with blood clotting, sending and receiving nerve signals, flexing and relaxing muscles, releasing hormones and other chemicals and keeping a regular heartbeat.

    Calcium is the most abundant mineral found in the human body, but as we age, we absorb less and less calcium from our diets. This results in our bodies taking more from our bones, which can contribute to osteopenia or osteoporosis. How much calcium we need depends on age and gender. Adolescents, especially girls, postmenopausal women and the elderly often have a high risk of calcium deficiency.

    As we age we absorb less and less calcium from our diets.

    Recent research shows that a diet high in calcium and also high in protein and other essential nutrients can positively impact bone health by aiding in more calcium absorption. Most of these nutrients can be found in high-quality dairy products like organic whey protein, raw unpasteurized milk, organic goat cheese, and kefir. Other sources of calcium include green leafy vegetables, salmon and sardines, nuts, blackstrap molasses, tofu and calcium-fortified foods, such as orange juice, soy milk, cereals and seeds.

    Although the calcium found in dairy is considered the most readily absorbed, these foods are not eaten by many people, including vegans and those who are lactose intolerant. When dietary calcium is not sufficient, a supplement may be needed, and there are many kinds. Some of the common calcium supplements include Calcium carbonate, Calcium citrate, Calcium gluconate, and Calcium lactate. But however much we take of any supplement, if it cannot be assimilated by the digestive system and used by the body’s systems, it will not support an Active Wellness lifestyle.

    Nikken's Caldenx® stands out specifically for its high bioavailability. That means it is easily absorbed: The complex mimics the mineral composition of our bones. In addition to the calcium the supplement contains additional minerals and vitamins including K and D. Furthermore, the supplement is produced with sensitive filters that purify and separate out the calcium-rich minerals used in the formulation from the lactose and proteins, so that it may be tolerated by virtually everyone.
