I am a Type II Diabetic and
that was my entree into the Nikken experience. I became a Diabetic by having
two bouts of Pancreatitis. I was a very
sick puppy for a long time and once we discovered the cause, it took nearly
five years to overcome. Nikken Magsteps were the first things I received and
although I had peripheral neuropathy from my toes to my knees, the reason was
simply to be able to play golf with my son in Tucson, AZ in 104 degree heat.
After the Magsteps found their way to my shoes, I did play, and then noticed
that I had some energy to spare, but the end result was far reaching. I also
noticed that next day that my FM (which comes with the Pancreatitis) didn't
react when normally I would've been rather disabled after a round of golf. When I arrived back in Atlanta I resumed my
walking routine of four miles in under an hour through the hills and valleys
that become quite steep. When a Diabetic feels that numb, tingly, burning
sensation in their feet, each step becomes a fear that some day, someone
will try to remove a toe hear
or a foot there and it's wheelchairs and a short life after that. But then the
second product experience hit and the condition of my feet disappeared, never
to return. Nothing could stop me from
sleeping on the sleep system and using the necklace and Magsteps during the
day. Pi Mag water came next and the rest is history. If I had known about
Nikken when the Pancreatitis hit first it would have been the water, the sleep
system and the day products for me. That is what I would recommend as an answer
to your question.
My gall bladder had plugged up
the tube from my pancreas and I had severe pancreatites with infection. When I
woke up in Intensive Care on a respirator, I had a sleep mask on, necklace,
magsteps inside the golf sox, Nikken Pillow, back belt around me, and the
travel comforter (green one with magnets) under me. I don't remember anything,
but my wife said that after about a week my temperature wouldn't stop going up.
When it hit 105 and still climbing, they called the family in and said that I
wouldn't live. She asked if it was OK to bring some magnets and put them one
me. They told her that if my temperature didn't break that I would die in a day
or two! (I don't think that they thought that it would hurt anything because I
was almost dead and probably wouldn't survive!) They told me that my
temperature toped out at 107. A nurse later told me that in her 23 years in IC
that she had seen only one other adult survive a temperature 106, usually they
die between 105 and 106. My wife Darlene says it had to be NIKKEN!!

A couple of months ago I attempted to help out a friend that I
play hockey with, he gets migraines on a cycle every 3-4 weeks that puts him
out of commission for that day and the day after. (He takes some meds that give
him a hangover but does reduce the severity of the migraine). He has tried many
things and was particularly interested in the water. He came by my house with
his wife and nephew and I showed them the PiMag unit and Optimizer. He was
intrigued and I sent him home with a 2.5 gal container of PiMag water and an
Optimizer I. When I followed up 5 days
later to see how they were doing and if he needed more water he told me they
were ready to buy both units. I was a bit shocked as I understood his headaches
were on a longer cycle. He told me that it wasn't him but his wife who has had
Colitis for many years and goes on Prednisone to clear it up. She was currently
battling a flare-up that the Prednisone was notsolving for over 4 months. 5
days on PiMag/Optimized water and it went away. Coincidence????? She's been
drinking the P/O for over 2 months and everything has been fine.
Last evening on a call from Nikken, Dr. Pederson was specifically
asked about ulcerative colitis. He said it is absolutely essential the person
take Ciaga because Ciaga reduces inflammation of any kind within the body and
boosts the immune system. He also suggested the person take one veggie cap a
day for a week and if tolerated (diarrhea would indicate intolerance), the next
week step it up to two
caps the next week, one in the morning and one in the evening. If
there is tolerance, then the following week, introduce the Berry by taking one
a day for a week and then two a day the following week.
Probably the biggest
reason why I became "sold" on Nikken was the relief from migraines
provided by a number of the Nikken products. My first experience of total
relief came from applying the mini's on both temples. If I had caught the
Migraine before it was really ramped up to the full-on discomfort, then within
15 minutes, the thing was gone. I only had an echo of discomfort, which is
sensitivity to light and sound and a very slight nausea. The next time I got one,
it came on while I was sleeping and by the time I applied the mini's they only
reduced the discomfort back down to a garden-variety head-discomfort but with
no nausea. After sleeping on a sleep system, including an Intellirest pillow,
and wearing the gold necklace, these episodes have disappeared. It's important
to realize there are number of reasons why they occur and different doctors
prescribe different medications depending on your age,
lifestyle and overall
health or medical condition. I'm NOT a believer in taking drugs but
comprehensive exams by an MD and a chiropractor may reveal the conditions that
exist to help "cause" these episodes, thus giving you a clue to what
to avoid and how to reduce the occurrences, or in some cases, actually
eliminate them. (I've heard of chiropractic adjustments making a big difference
if mis-alignment is the "cause.") The Nikken products DO help
greatly, but a total picture needs to be examined. It always means something is
out of balance.
I worked with many
people who wear the necklaces 24 hours a day and they're migraines stopped. If
they leave the necklace off (loan it to someone) and the headache has started,
the Solitens also works very well. Normally in 10-20 minutes the headache is
gone. These products are wonderful!
I have migraines
where periodically my vision gets very shaky, I get nauseated and then my head
feels as though it is being beaten by a hammer. Usually the vision is the first
thing to go. Twice I have spun the magboys at my head for 3-5 minutes and it
has been almost like a light switch: the visual distortions turned off
immediately! So when you feel this coming on, get your magboy and get to,
because it is much easier to head off this problem than it is to stop it once
it has been started. Also in my family, the magboy has stopped menstrual cramps
in their tracks, however, I have found it takes at least 10-15 minutes of
continuous massage to the abdomen to accomplish this.
My wife gets
"chronic head in a vice" migraines. These are the bad ones that would
often require hospital visits for injections and IV's and involve vision
disruption and stomach upset. A Mini magnet placed on each temple helps the
medication she can use at home work faster and appears to make it much more
effective. When using the Mini, she also does not experience the "sore
head" and light sensitivity afterwards. The Mini's are great for this
condition because she often experiences pressure behind her right eye and is
not comfortable with the weight of the sleep mask on her eye. One of my own
experiences involved a terrible discomfort in my ear. My wife taped the mini
right behind my ear and in minutes, no more discomfort. They also are great to
help cuts "close up" faster and
with much less
evidence that there had even been a cut.
I used to suffer from
major migraines, the kind where I'd get so sick I'd throw up, so severely that
all the tiny capillaries around my eyes would burst. No fun at all. I used to
take lots of Excedrin ... if I could hold it down.
Then I found Nikkens
magnets. The first one I used was a Magstep, on the back of the neck. Within an
hour that two-day major headache was on its way out... without ANY drugs. Now that I'm on the sleep system and off
prescription drugs, I get very few of these headaches. But if I ever do feel
one coming on, I attach a mini to the back of my neck, around the area at the
top of the spine where the bone sticks out the most. [Apparently down our
spines there are a
series of "energy centers" called chakras. It makes sense to me that
a mini (or try a max for greater coverage of nerve endings) placed at the top
of the spine would affect these serious headaches.] And it always does work.
I'm VERY thankful to be freed of drugs, whether OTC or prescribed. And free of
I suffered from migraines for about 15
years. Last summer I started using a headband with 5 minis or 1-2 super minis
plus 2 minis in October. I use that headband only when I feel a discomfort
starting and usually get rid of all symptoms within minutes. Actually I had not
had any headaches since getting on the sleep system until recently after
helping my mother transition to the next dimension. I guess all the crying and
stress had something to do with their return.
I had migaines for over thirty years. I
tried different medication, it would go away for some days, but would come
back. This would happen around three times per month until I tried the Nikken
pillow and I've never had one since. Now I use the complete Sleep System. We
always take our pillows and the travel mattress with us traveling. I wouldn’t
live without them.
I have a customer who had had migraine headaches
for 10 years. They ranged in intensity on a pain scale from a 2 to a 10 at all
times. During a 21 Club we put a
necklace on him and the headband. He got instant results. His headaches are now
at 0. He wears the necklace at all times and wears the headband at times of
stress or when the weather changes, etc. He is delighted to say the least.
I took 5 prescription drugs a day so I
would only have 1 – 2 migraines a month and to relief my allergies. I have not
taken 1 drug for 22 months and have had 1 migraine and very little allergies
(no enough for drugs) I have worn a necklace for 24 months and also wear magsteps
and sleep on a sleep system. I never take my necklace off unless I'm helping
Mother Nature with my hair color. And I mean NEVER. The necklace stills looks
like the day I purchased it.
I use to get 1 to 3 migraines a week,
for years. About a 9 ½ on a level of 10 being ready to die. The necklace took
them away. Its been 18 months. I have had 4 since then. 2 because I lent my
necklace. And the other 2 were no where as strong as usual. I could actually function
but I knew it was a migraine because I had a sick stomach.
I was experiencing severe (just let me
die!) migraines just before or just after my monthly cycle. Since I've been
wearing the necklace and sleeping on the mattress I have experienced a little
head discomfort every once in a while. I have not taken any medication for months.
I was a severe migraine sufferer for
YEARS. I have been free 2 years today. The necklace is what prevents them.
Every single person I have helped with the same problem, get the same results.
Some times I get a headache. Totally bearable. The migraines put me to bed, and
totally sick to my stomach. (nothing else has ever gotten me down)
For my migraines I have very
successfully used a mini (try a mini first then only if needed go to a super
mini) on the back of the neck. There is
a spot (Indian medicine calls it a chakra, an energy center) on the top of the
spine, it is around the biggest bony protuberance between the shoulders,
directly over the spine and (on me) about three inches below my hair line. When
I feel a migraine coming on, I tape a mini there, and the migraine does not
develop. The necklace does not work the same way for me, I don't know why.
Others use a max (larger circle) on the same spot, it simply covers more nerve
cells. All the best - migraines are worth avoiding!!!
I have had my necklace for a little over two years now, and
have been completely free of migraines. I have suffered from migraines since
1969, and literally went through nursing school eating Excedrin. I went the
route with my family doc injecting my neck muscles with cortisone to going to
the headache clinic at the Cleveland Clinic. I got temporary relief from the
exercises from the clinic, but finally I discovered Nikken, by the grace of
God. Since then migraines have been history.
I was a chronic migraine sufferer (2-3 a week). I had
damaged by back in a work related accident. I was also having stomach
trouble. All these problems cleared
after sleeping on a sleep system and using a back flex - All it took was 3
A friend of mine was having very frequent migraines. She has
been using the PiMag bottle and necklace for one month. She just called to tell
me that she hasn't had any migraines since using the products. She was
practically living on analgesics and now she doesn't have to take them.
My new wellness consultant started to develop a migraine as
we were talking. She was under pressure to get to her job earlier than planned.
I handed her my Nikken necklace. Within minutes she told me the headache was
subsiding. She wore it for her eight
hour job, on her feet, and never developed the headache. She gets them quite
often. She was thrilled to NOT get one this time. She has ordered her own.
I have witnessed a woman, who felt a migraine coming on,
improve immediately when I loaned her my necklace. She felt the aura
diminishing. She wore it to work as a grocery checker and the headache never
developed. She has purchased her own. Under extreme stress occasionally a
migraine may reoccur.
My father in-law, who is an accountant, suffered for years
with migraine headaches. It was just part of life for him to take prescribed
medicine for his migraine headaches. We suggested he try wearing a Nikken
necklace. He very skeptically tried it, and he has never had a migraine since.
That is over five years ago now.
Our daughter suffered from very frequent migraines for
years, now it's rare. Products she uses are: PiMag/Optimized water (around a
gallon a day), necklace, sleep system, PalmMag, Air Power5, Ciaga, JGZ, Women's,
Calcium, Lactoferrin, Immunity and other products as needed (she is a violinist
and sometimes gets aches related to playing the instrument for a long period of
From age 11, I have suffered from debilitating migraine
headaches. At first, I go blind, then can’t speak and have about 25 minutes to
get into a dark room before the agonizing pounding in my temple hits. Drugs
have never helped. In September, 2000, I was introduced to Nikken. I hoped the
necklace would possibly give me an extra 5 minutes to get into my dark room.
After 4 months, still migraine free, I was at a Christmas party with a friend
who complained of a pounding sinus headache, so I gave her my chain because I’d
seen it help with congestion. Twenty minutes later, she bounced up to me and
declared not only her headache gone, but her sinuses were miraculously cleared.
But during the time she had my necklace (she paid for it), I had a horrific
migraine. As soon as the new one arrived, I put it on and have never taken it
off since. I am thrilled to report that was December 2000 and I haven’t had ONE
I suffered from migraines until I used the sleep system and
the necklace. Mine used to start as Charlie horse up my back and then turn into
jack hammer pounding which could keep in bed for up to 3 days. And affect my
great humor. After I put the necklace on to stop the Charlie horse from
spreading up my back, a couple hours later I only had a mild headache that I
could live with. After 5 years the only time I have had a migraine is the one time
I lent my necklace to my sister who did not return it for 3 weeks. I found
after 5 years that I can have the necklace off for about a week before mild
headaches reappear. I just don't let it get past that point.
My daughter suffered from migraines for 4 years. She would
be in bed for 6 days twice a month. She was allergic to the medications so she
suffered. I was worried about how I was going to send her off to college. She
allowed me to use the comforter, pillow and mask on her. With those three
products, I sent her off to college. She was able to lengthen the time between
migraines to every other month. About
six months ago she told me that she hadn't suffered a full blown migraine in 2
years. When she gets the feeling of a migraine coming on, she lays on her sleep
system, puts the mask on and within one to two hours her headache is gone.
My daughter has migraines that are hormone induced. As long
as she wears the necklace, she has no problem with migraines. She also sleeps on a sleep system. She was
still having problems with migraines until the necklace became available.
I used to get migraines quite often. I have found that the
Nikken necklace (I have the "old" gold one) does wonders for me. Also, since I don't have caffeine in my diet
on a regular basis, if I drink a regular Pepsi (not the diet) at the beginning
of the headache, I can usually ward off the full attack. I've worn the necklace
every day now for several years, and it's really made a difference. I also drink
optimized PiMag water. I LOVE Nikken
I met a woman 9 years ago who had severe migraines about
once a month and took very strong prescription meds that helped after a period
of days. I gave her a Roll Out and then she started wearing the necklace and
sleeping on the total sleep system. After about 2 to 3 months she began to have
less severe headaches. Soon after she had minor ones that just over-the-counter
meds helped. She now hasthem very seldom, far apart and like a regular headache
like the rest of us that aspirin helps get rid of in an hour or so.
I have suffered migraines since I was a teenager. The one
thing that has kept them down is the necklace. I wear it 24 hours a day and
only take it off for a shower. The headband and sleep mask help when I have a
migraine. I also have a complete wellness home. I sleep on the old Nikken
mattress and feel the benefits of the cocoon each day. I love the water and
drink plenty especially when I feel one approaching. The new organic vitamins
really help too.
What would you do?....you make the choice. Don't look for a punch line, there
isn't one. Read it anyway. My question is: Would you have made the same choice?
At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves children with learning
disabilities, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would
never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its
Dedicated staff, he offered a question:
'When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does, is
done with perfection.
Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot
understand things as other children do.
Where is the natural order of things in my son?'
The audience was stilled by the query.
The father continued.. 'I believe that when a child like Shay, who was mentally
and physically disabled comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true
human nature presents itself, and it comes in the way other people treat that
Then he told the following story:
Shay and I had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing
baseball. Shay asked, 'Do you think they'll let me play?' I knew that most of
the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but as a fatherI also
understood that if my son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed
sense of belonging and some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his
I approached one of the boys on the field and asked (not expecting much) if
Shay could play. The boy looked around for guidance and said, 'We're losing by
six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team
and we'll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning..'
Shay struggled over to the team's bench and, with a broad smile, put on a team
shirt.. I watched with a small tear in my eye and warmth in my heart. The boys
saw my joy at my son being accepted.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a few runs but was still
behind by three.
In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the right
field. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be
in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as I waved to him from
In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored again.
Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base
and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.
At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the
Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but
impossible because Shay didn't even know how to hold the bat properly, much
less connect with the ball.
However, as Shay stepped up to the
Plate, the pitcher, recognizing that the other team was putting winning aside
for this moment in Shay's life, moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly
so Shay could at least make contact.
The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed.
The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards
As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right
back to the pitcher.
The game would now be over.
The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball
to the first baseman.
Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game..
Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the first baseman's head, out of
reach of all team mates.
Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, 'Shay, run to first!
Run to first!'
Never in his life had Shay ever run that far, but he made it to first base.
He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled.
Everyone yelled, 'Run to second, run to second!'
Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran towards second, gleaming and struggling
to make it to the base.
By the time Shay rounded towards second base, the right fielder had the ball .
The smallest guy on their team who now had his first chance to be the hero for
He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he
understood the pitcher's intentions so he, too, intentionally threw the ball
high and far over the third-baseman's head.
Shay ran toward third base deliriously as the runners ahead of him circled the
bases toward home.
All were screaming, 'Shay, Shay, Shay, all the Way Shay'
Shay reached third base because the opposing shortstop ran to help him by
turning him in the direction of third base, and shouted, 'Run to third!
Shay, run to third!'
As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams, and the spectators, were on
their feet screaming, 'Shay, run home! Run home!'
Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the
grand slam and won the game for his team
'That day', said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, 'the
boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this
Shay didn't make it to another summer. He died that winter, having never
forgotten being the hero and making me so happy, and coming home and seeing his
Mother tearfully embrace her little hero of the day!

Asperger's Syndrome, also known as Asperger's Disorder or Autistic Psychopathy, is a Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) characterized by severe and sustained impairment in social interaction, development of restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, and activities. These characteristics result in clinically significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. In contrast to Autistic disorder (Autism), there are no clinically significant delays in language or cognition or self help skills or in adaptive behavior, other than social interaction. A large number of children are diagnosed between the ages of 5 and 9. Motor delays, clumsiness, social interaction problems, and idiosyncratic behaviors are reported. Adults with Asperger's have trouble with empathy and modulation of social interaction - the disorder follows a continuous course and is usually life long. Aspergers is not easily recognizable - in fact, many children are misdiagnosed with other neurological disorders such as Tourette's
Syndrome or Autism. More frequently, children are misdiagnosed with Attention Deficit (and Hyperactivity) Disorders (ADD & ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Cari was born a happy healthy baby and had the usual childhood. Up
to age 8 she was very athletic and active physically, taking dance lessons,
awarded a scholarship from her dance teacher. When she was 9 years old she was
diagnosed with a disease which had symptoms of constant hurting, swollen, and
sometimes deformed joints - No more dance lessons. At the age of 15-18 years
old her health condition and damage progressed so rapidly that she was confined
to a wheelchair and told she would never walk again. At the age of 18, by a
true miracle, she was able to start walking on a very limited basis, while
still having to use her electric wheelchair for most of her nonautomobile
transportation. Although she now enjoyed a tiny amount of freedom compared to
her wheelchair confinement, she was still hurting constantly and was taking
some very strong medications including steroids, a small dosage of a
chemotherapy/abortion inducing drug and frequent use of prescription
painkillers just to survive. She also could not get up and down off the floor
by herself. When she was 22 years old shopping for wedding apparel, while
trying on a slight heel dressy shoe at a department store, she slight pressure
produced by the shoe created a stress fracture in her foot. Following the
fracture, the bone density scan revealed that she had the bone density of an 80
year old (no wonder) which simply put means she had extreme osteoporosis. Over
time due to the osteoporosis, she started developing a small hump between the
top of her spine and her neck (like many elderly people develop at a late ageWell, her Mother had been trying to get her to try some
alternative treatments for her condition and she kept refusing for 2 years due
to skepticism and precaution (pregnant and nursing for the past few years.) She
finally got to her wit's end when she came down with a really bad case of
hives. They were persistent for several days and she tried everything she could
think of to try and get rid of the hives (eliminating certain foods from her
diet, avoiding certain fabrics, changing the sheets more often, etc.) What it
came down to was taking Benedryl which, because she was nursing, doped our son
Jared to the point that he was sleeping too much and even slept for 8 hours
straight one night (he should have woken up during the night to nurse at least
once or twice). As nice as it was to get 8 solid hours of sleep, it concerned
us for him to be "drugged" by the Benadryl. The other problem was
that Cari was so doped herself that she was sleeping all the time and was
constantly tired. This put a lot of strain on our situation as I was left to
deal with the two boys and try to keep earning a living, which was not an easy
task. The hives were not getting better and the situation needed a change FAST.
Well, one morning, Cari woke up and there were no hives on her legs, or so she
thought. The front of her legs looked fine, but the backs of her legs were all
bumpy and red. The only thing that we could link it to was the "Far
Infrared" quilt that she had borrowed from her mom that was on our bed.
This quilt is known for helping a number of things, including swelling and
equalizing body temperature. She had been resting on her side with the quilt
bunched up in front of her, just touching her legs, along the tops of her
thighs and in front of her shins. When she got up out of bed, within minutes,
the hives swelled right up again, just as bad as before. . . Well. . . We tried
an experiment. She wrapped her legs in this quilt and had us set a timer for 30
minutes. After the 30 minutes were up, we took a look at her legs and there
were no more bumps and after another 30 minutes, all the redness was gone too!
You know how as a child we are told lots of things by our parents, and offered
lots of help from our parents, and usually you just say no, because, "what
do they know?" And then you get yourself in a real bind and it's
"Mommy, I need you help!!" That's basically what happened here. Her
mom had been trying to get her to try some of these products for nearly 2
years, and she would reluctantly try a couple of them, but really wouldn't give
the majority of them a shot. She called her mom and said, "you know that
quilt you've had us try on our bed? Do you have any clothes made out of that
stuff?" She said she did, but all she had were "long johns." Oh
great. Long johns in the middle of summer in hot, humid Houston, Texas? She
tried them out, and they worked great! Her hives basically cleared up while she
was wearing the long johns, but it was just too hot to wear something like that
in the summer, and she only had *one* pair to wear, which meant wear the same
stinky, sweaty long johns day after day, or wash them and have the hives come
back while they are being washed and dried (the hives came back every time she
took them off for ANYTHING). This got just a *little* bit frustrating as a few
days passed and, although it was better than being sleepy/sleeping all day, it
was not the funniest thing to deal with wearing long johns all day in the
summer, and the hives were not going away for anything. She finally called her mom and told her that
she had hit rock bottom and she was ready to try anything to get rid of these
hives. She told her mom, "I'll try anything you want me to try, just hurry
before I change my mind." So, her mother came over. Previously, Cari
didn't want to take any supplements because she was either pregnant or nursing
and she is pretty conservative about what goes into her body besides food during
those times. So even though her mom told her that the supplements were all
natural and had no side effects, Cari was still leery, so she had resisted
until now. Her mom brought over one supplement called Liver Support and after
only 3 days, the hives from Hades were gone! Apparently, since healthy skin has
a lot to do with a healthy liver, taking a supplement that helped improve liver
function also helped her hives. Well,
this opened her mind and willingness toward these supposedly "wacko"
alternative treatments and she started trying some other things. In the process
of looking into other things, she was listening to an audio tape about a
supplement her mother had been trying to get her to take for quite some time
called "Joint." And no, that's not marijuana. ;). Cari had heard from
this audio tape about a study that was published in the Journal of Rheumatology
where they had a "double blind" "placebo controlled" study
on the effectiveness of the "Joint" product on patients who had
Osteoarthritis (the "old people" arthritis). The results of the study
were that after 68 days of taking the joint product, over 95% of the
participants had NO PAIN and increased range of motion by 10 degrees! 95%???
That beats any study done on "chemical drugs" BY FAR and this product
was all natural! Well, needless to say, this excited Cari and she was anxious
for this to be the next thing to "try out." She decided to do her own
"60 day trial" and found some very wonderful results: (some of these
may not sound like a big deal to an average healthy person, but to us these
were HUGE.) After only a few days she
could bend over and unbuckle her sandals from a standing position. After about
a month she mopped the floor for the first time in her life. Within the next
month or so she was able to RUN for the first time in over 20 years (yes, RUN).
We were trying to potty train our son Jacob and she was teaching him that when
he knows he needs to go potty, he needs to "stop and run." Each time
she tried to illustrate this, she was walking quickly down the hallway trying
to encourage Jacob to run. This procedure was repeated several times to help
Jacob learn the stop and run concept and one of the times down the hallway.
During one of their trips down the hallway, she was feeling so good that she
thought to herself, "I feel like I could run." And she went ahead and
tried it, and to her amazement, she did it! Over the next few weeks, she was
able to run for many people. Several members of her family got quite emotional
over the sight as they had known her through all of her struggles including
being confined to a wheelchair from 16_18 years old. The difference between
then and now is so phenomenal it is hard to imagine. As if she wasn't already a
living miracle for which we feel blessed beyond measure, there's more. . . .One day recently (I think
it was during August 2003) she was looking up at a beam that supports our low
ceiling in our living room of our house and started trying to tippy toe and
reach the beam to touch it. After a few minutes, she got a little more
confidence and decided to try and JUMP to tap the beam. She did so
successfully, and found another ability she had gained in being able to jump
now! Later on thatbeat, decided to jump occasionally.
She did this with no problem and had no problems with the after effect of
hurting like crazy that normally followed something like that. The fact of the matter is that over 8 years
ago, when we were dating and first got married, she couldn't go dancing unless
she had taken Percodan (a very strong narcotic pain killer). And, yes, she
wasn't hurting for a night, but the next day was bed-ridden and wiped out from
the hurting so bad from of overdoing it. This was not the case now. She has not
had to take her pain killers for several months now (and not at all while she
has been taking the joint). Once again,
the Lord has been good to us, and we feel even more blessed than before, but
yes, you guessed it, there's more. . .She has been taking dance lessons from
the same lady she took from before she was diagnosed with her disability at age
9. Miss Lesa had been trying to get Cari to come out and take lessons from her
again for quite some time. Cari went a few times (and wiped herself out for the
next day) and didn't attend regularly until she started doing so much better
after taking the Joint product. One of the nights she went to her class, it
just so happened that the other people in the class didn't show up that night
and her teacher decided to just go ahead and do a private lesson. After showing
her teacher her new "jumping" ability, her teacher asked, "well,
you can run and jump, what's next?". To which Cari replied, "My next
goal is to be able to get down and back up from the floor without any help and
without objects to hold on to." So, her teacher began right away with
having Cari try different ways that she might accomplish this next goal. They
tried lots of different things until finally figuring out a way, and Cari was
able to split her legs as if in stride and lower a knee down to the ground, then the other, and gently roll to the floor,
all by herself! This was a MAJOR accomplishment as, up to this point, if she
ever needed to sit on the floor for any reason, she had to be lowered to the
ground by someone lowering her down by her armpits or hands (usually armpits). Needless to say, this has not been fun for
her, especially in public situations as it can be quite embarrassing for
• Up to age of 8 was very athletic and active
physically, taking dance lessons, awarded a scholarship from her dance
• Diagnosed with (that condition where you have
swollen joints that hurt all the time) at age 9.
• Had to stop taking dance as she was hurting too
badly, especially when jarring her body and bouncing/jumping.
• Age 15-18 [her disease] had progressed so badly
that she was confined to a wheelchair and told by doctors she would never walk
• Age 19 by a miracle blessing from God escaped
from the wheelchair and was walking again, very limited, though.
• Had a partial shoulder replacement surgery,
fused ankle surgery, 4 knuckle joints replaced on one hand, several Toes
surgically fused, and a Jaw surgery.
• Had dealt with excruciating, stabbing
discomfort, especially when she would know that we were going to have a Rainy day a day or so in advance (my own
• Could not walk for distances more than from the
Handicapped parking to the building without having to rest from lack of energy and hurting too much.
• Regularly used her electric wheel chair/Electric
cart at shopping centers for any normal distance normally traveled on foot.
• Very difficult to get out of bed any earlier
than 12 noon and most often around 2 pm.
• Felt trapped and scared when she had to be left
home alone, especially when kids were home with her.
Now after taking Nikken's
Joint, accompanied by other external health technologies from Nikken she's:
• Taking Dance lessons again
• Can RUN, JUMP, and get up and down off the floor
without any objects or people assisting her for the first time in
Over 20 YEARS.
• No longer has to use her wheelchair (wheelchair
has been sitting unused so long that it is warped and will not work
• Never has to use the electric cart inside
WalMart/Shopping Malls, etc.
• Feels a freedom she couldn't have imagined
• Cari's new bone density scan shows remarkable
improvement in her bone density - From Osteoporosis to Osteopenia
(up to 58% improvement!).
Sorry for the looong details, but quite frankly, I have a new
wife. I still loved her deeply before all of this, and married her knowing full
well that she had a disability, and now with her large change in her abilities,
it's like a bonus that I would have never expected in a million years.

My sister had LUPUS for 26 years with side affects of arthritis.
Gail is now free of Lupus; however, the debilitating affects from arthritis
sometimes make her miserable. The magsteps have helped tremendously in keeping
the body open, her legs feel much better, her knee is no longer swollen, she
can lay on right hip now and her hands are more flexible. She just recently
drove to and from Medical Doctor by herself. After driving if her knee hurts,
she gets out the Anti-arthritis spray and it becomes relieved quickly. She
swears that anyone with arthritic joint problems will find relief for those
really bad times.
I have Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis, plus diabetes. I sleep on a
mattress pad, use a car seat in my car, at work and in my lift chair at home. I
wear magsteps, minis on both knees and both shoulders and I just purchased one
of the new magwraps. It seems to be veryeffective when using my keyboard
extensively. I also use the quilt, but in the summer it is just too hot. I plan
on purchasing the summer quilt. I developed the osteo in my knees in 1990 and
suffered a lot until I started using Nikken, in Jan of 96. I got instant relief
and was pain free. I am firm believer
that one can never have too many magnets around them. I believe what Nikken
promotes. We are magnetically deficient. I know the longer I use these products
the healthier I am. The magnets are also
great for diabetes. I had lost the feeling in my toes about 6 years before the
magsteps. Within a few days the sensitivity started to return. If you know any
diabetics, please, please introduce them to Magsteps. I won't go into a lengthy
explanation, but I had a diabetic ulcer on my leg that topical antibiotics
didn't help. I put a mini on a sterile gauze, wrapped it and 24 hr later the
sore was scabbed over, the swelling was completely gone. I have been a Med Tech for 25 years and
because I hadn't heard of magnetic therapy I figured it was snake oil. I didn't
even believe my own father. He sent me
products and they collected dust for 17 months in my garage. Now I'm a firm
believer that magnetism is a fantastic easy way towards prevention. Magnetic therapy
does work, but one has to use the product and realize that will take time. But
the longer you use magnets the better you will feel.
I was introduced to Nikken about 3 months ago and reluctantly
tried the magsteps and minis for newly diagnosed osteoarthritis. I am a very
active high school teacher and thought I was going to be required to change
careers because of the extreme pain. My closest friend had become a distributor
and so I took her up on her offer to "play with the products." To my
amazement, within a matter of weeks I NO LONGER HURT! I am not totally cured, I
can still tell you when the weather is going to change, but I am walking my classroom
again!! As I walk out the door to school
every morning I do a Nikken check...magsteps, minis, necklace. With these three
products, I can face any day without pain killers. I am thrilled and am telling
everyone about it!!! If you need anyone to vouch for the power of these products please feel free to contact me.
I suffer from fibromyalgia and arthritis. A friend left me a tape
at my home, I was annoyed with my husband for taking it. I thought it was
another pill or drink whatever. When she called to see if I could come to her
home for a demonstration I told her no I did not think I would be interested.
She asked if she could pick up the tape, I told her yes and after she hung up I
began to feel guilty and thought she may ask me why. Not having even listed to
it I thought well I will listen and then be able to tell her why. I barely
began to listen and heard sleep system, relieve discomfort and my attention was
there. I never even listened to the whole tape and knew I wanted to see more.
She came and I told her I had not listened and could I come, we laughed and
from there is history. We bought the sleep system and innersoles that day, within
3-4 days I knew I felt better. I have a new knee and need a new hip. I had
reached what the medical community call MMI maximum medical improvement. They
had sent me to pain clinic given many doses of cortisone etc. I was on
medication to help me sleep without
discomfort as my bad hip woke me up 3 and 4 times a night. After a week on the
sleep system and my innersoles I was off the medication at night and most of
the arthritis meds and I sleep well and have a much better quality of life. I
had reached the point of feeling like my body was dying and I could do nothing.
I would sleep for 8-10 hrs and when I got up wonder when I slept. I hurt all
over and when people touched me it hurt.
Now I get up feeling energy and looking forward to my day, after a few
months we checked into the business and in Jan.98 I became a distributor. I am
not going to quit and I plan to be silver in a very short time. I thank God and
my friend every day for bringing Nikken to my life.
We have a distributor in our down line that literally got his life
back because of the products. "Uncle" Jimmy (I call him that because
that is how I was introduced to him) was forcibly retired in 1975 because of
arthritis. For the last 6 or 8 years he had been going to Duke Hospital for
treatments. The doctors at Duke told Uncle Jimmy to not ride in a car unless he
was going to the hospital for fear his back would collapse. Uncle Jimmy lives
in the eastern part of the state and since he and his wife had not been
anywhere for a long time, they decided to visit their nephew and niece in our
town in July of last year. Kathy put insoles and a back flex on Uncle Jimmy
while he was there for the weekend. On Sunday, they left and he drove 1,000
miles through the Blue Ridge Mountains to Gatlinburg, Knoxville, etc. and back.
Uncle Jimmy stopped on Tuesday on the way back, plopped his credit card down
and said order me everything I need. Uncle Jimmy is now Silver in the business
telling every person he comes in contact with his story. The doctors at Duke
are amazed since they have his medical records over the last several years. We
have sent information to them as part of their first process in looking at
Nikken. Uncle Jimmy responded quickly
and I think that wonderful, but not everyone will have that dramatic
turnaround. Results vary. In addition, Jimmy doesn't smoke or drink and watches
his diet carefully which is probably why he responded so well. He now takes
very little medication if any. If you would like to talk with Jimmy, call him
at 910-594-1154 and be sure to mention my name. He is the proverbial perfect
My first introduction to Nikken was my dads bad diabetic feet
healed. (My parents had become distributors and I told them this was a miracle,
I wanted to sell this product even thought I had never ever sold anything and
hate selling. My parents have decided not to pursue the business, but I will be
forever grateful for this opportunity for me. I can now see an alternative to
working at the hospital for 25-30 more years before retirement, and then with a
questionable income.) I have some arthritis in my right wrist, hand and elbow
which is relieved within 2 minutes of wearing the wrist wrap. I also had
chronic sinus headaches and used the sleep mask and guess what, they went away.
I couldn't believe it since I had been taking medication almost daily for
headaches and sinus. All my friends knew that I would have a pill bottle full
of whatever they needed for a headache. I didn't tell anyone for a long time
because I was afraid that my headaches would come back. (crazy huh?)
I have arthritis in my left knee and wear the elastomag ELBOW wrap
on it. My foot was hurting in the middle of the night so I put the same elbow
wrap on it and went back to sleep...when I travel, work out and am sore thru
shoulder/neck area or lower back or sitting at the computer I lay a NIKKEN sock
around my neck or tucked in my underwear against skin ...it is so
relaxing....funny looking but starts conversations... I have a good competitor
in golf that had to have neck fusion in Jan. I put the magnetic seat under her
and the pillow and the quilt on her
in the hospital...I also put minis on her dressings which were in
the front of her neck and on her hip where they had taken the bone for the
fusion. I would go up a once a day at least and spin the magboys over her
dressings. they would not try the sleep system at home...in the 2nd week, she
bought a gold necklace and wore it under her neck brace...still wearing the
minis on her dressings…she was not to golf till June and had heard how painful
the hip was after the surgery much worse than the neck... in fact the hip bone
removal spot was to be painful for years.
She started golfing in may, 4-6 weeks earlier than the Dr thought
she would...she has had no hip pain after the first 2 wks...couple weeks ago
she hit into the ground and hurt her neck somewhat so I gave her a men’s dress
sock to put around her neck...she won't give it back....the worst thing is we
both played in a pro-am yesterday she played better; her team took 1st we took
4th...:))))))) she hasn't quit golfing long enough to get her involved and its
multilevel marketing!!!!...but I'm stirring the pot..
I have severe rheumatoid arthritis, a result of Sarcoidosis, which
often affects my teaching ability. I have my husband in my classroom to I use
the gold necklace for neck and shoulder pain, two mini's with a brace for the
knee, two min's with a brace for the ankle, a back promopad and the shoe mags
--both types. I have slept on the twin mattress pad (just bought a full size
one also) and both my husband and I sleep on the intelli pillows. He has stopped
snoring almost completely. He used to snore almost constantly. I have found
that I have more energy, I am able to walk for a longer period of time, my
breathing problems have decreased and I overall feel better to cope with my
job. I am about to send for the arthritis cream somebody told me about
yesterday with confidence that it will help me even more deal with a
debilitating disease. I have already helped several members of my family and
friends with surgery pain. My son, Mark, had knee surgery -- he is a
"runner" in marathons-- and the mini"s helped him after the
I came down with the "joint discomfort" (Rheumatoid
Arthritis) in March of 1972. I was diagnosed and fought it using a variety of
treatments from gold shots (for 18 years) to methotrexate and am now on
plaquinil(for 8 years). During this time I suffered multiple joint problems all
over my body. I was on some pretty strong pain medication and took sleeping
pills for 10 years. My sister, Fran, became a Nikken distributor about 2 or 3
years ago and after having her product experience thought this might help my
RA. She knew the pain I was in and the numerous treatments that I had been
through for over 25 years. I agree to try the mag soles. Within weeks I felt
some relief but I still wasn't ready to do more. She came down to Tucson for a
Wellness Preview and talked me into going with her. I was fascinated by the
testimonials and the many new products. I finally agree to try the original
Nikken pad. After two weeks I began feeling a significant relief from the
tiredness that has so long been a symptom of my RA. A friend was having trouble
with spasms in his legs so I lent him my pad. Big mistake!!! He got relief but
my relief stopped. He got a pad for himself and I got mine back. It took me a longer time the second time
before I felt the same relief as before but it did come back and more. After 2
or 3 months I decided to take myself off of the pain medication. Then I decided
to do the same for the sleeping medication. I did it over time and now I have
no need for either medication. I continued to go bimonthly to my doctor and he
did kept up the test for my sed rate. This is a test
that tells how active my RA was. My highest sed rate over the 25
years was 20 and my lowest was 4. The last two tests have come in 0. I was
amazed!! Also during this time I went from mag soles to mad strides. I use the
kenko seat on my office chair. I wear the necklace and bracelets on both
wrists. I have also gone to the intellirest pad and pillow. I have also started
taking some of the supplements that Nikken has done such a good job developing.
I am waiting to do another sed rate test to see if it is still down. I'm not
saying that my RA is cured. I also still have an occasional flair up. However,
I do attribute most if not all of my improved good heath to the Nikken magnetic products. I also have more energy,
get more regular exercise (3 miles in 45 min 3 times a week). I have horses and
am starting to do more regular riding. I have even been doing some hiking. I
hope this sharing of my experience with you enables you to make some kind of
decision about whether magnetic therapy will help you. If you would like to write,
I am enclosing my name and address at the bottom of this testimonial.
I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and have been helped tremendously with
the Nikken products. When the Bio-Directed Joint was introduced, I began taking
it and had further improvement in my condition. The bio-directed joint enhances
the immune system and acts as an immune system modulator which balances the
immune system for auto-immune diseases. When used in combination with Nikken's
magnetic and far-infrared products, optimal results are achieved. The sleep
system is key. My condition is very aggressive and I now have my quality of
life back -- even playing golf! Hope this helps.
Anyone struggling with Rheumatoid Arthritis should look at Dave
Johnson's web site at www.ruexcited.com. There is an article on Cytal-Myristoleate
and it's positive results on both types of arthritis! I am borderline positive
with Rh. and have been on the magnetics for 3years now. I get good results with
the use of many products. However, I still suffer with neck / shoulder
discomforts to a certain degree. I started the Joint formula back in May of
this year. I finished two full bottles and did not really think it was doing
anything for me. Ironically, I was not
having any symptoms either. I had a very good summer. I commented to my husband
that it was too good to be true. That
was until August rolled around. I have had the worst time these last five
weeks. It was after I read the article from Dave Johnson that I realized it was
NO coincidence why I felt so great in June and July. Bio-directed Joint in
conjunction with the liver support and the magnetic products are an absolute
must for anyone with inflammatory and Arthritic problems. The article goes into
greater detail with even more health concerns. I urge all of you to take a look
at that article. Hope this helps.
I just read Dr. Charles Cochran's pamphlet on Cetyl Meristolyate.
He speaks about rheumatoid arthritis, and talks about the theory that it is an
auto-immune disorder and may be caused by "leaky gut" - undigested
food being released into the blood streams which causes an auto-immune reaction
(the body is attacking what it considers to be "invaders".) Dr.
Cochran suggests we use the Joint product (6-9 help with many of the physical
chores I can't deal with at times. The Plumps introduced me to Nikken products
last Christmas and since then I have had wonderful relief from the products.
