Lactoferrin

Nicki Edgell
Lactoferrin is an essential protein that occurs naturally in many bodily fluids, such as tears, blood, and saliva. A major component of mother’s milk, therefore one of the first sources of nutrition provided to babies after birth, it’s also present in the digestive, respiratory, and reproductive systems. Specially developed by Dr Narain Naidu – one of the world’s leading scientists in international lactoferrin research – leading to an ultra-pure preparation with consequentially high functional activity. Sourced from a specific isolated herd of cows in New Zealand that is biologically protected and monitored. Each capsule also contains a complement of 60mg of vitamin C that can contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism function and the normal functioning of the nervous system.

A medical view on Nikken - excellent talk from Dr Jim Bews

Nicki Edgell


One of the best talks on Nikken I've heard, given by Canadian Doctor Jim Bews who discovered "a better way" - long but annotated with clickable timings in youtube. Pretty much covers everything - sleep, water, air, nutrition (which he calls S.W.A.N), strokes, the business, network marketing, bones, playmates, MS, placebo, horses, triphase. Worth it for both customers and consultants.

Pick Yourself

Nicki Edgell

Reject the tyranny of being picked: pick yourself 

 

Amanda Hocking is making a million dollars a year publishing her own work to the Kindle. No publisher.

Rebecca Black has reached more than 15,000,000 listeners, like it or not, without a record label.

Are we better off without gatekeepers? Well, it was gatekeepers that brought us the unforgettable lyrics of Terry Jacks in 1974, and it's gatekeepers that are spending a fortune bringing out pop songs and books that don't sell.

I'm not sure that this is even the right question. Whether or not we're better off, the fact is that the gatekeepers--the pickers--are reeling, losing power and fading away. What are you going to do about it?

It's a cultural instinct to wait to get picked. To seek out the permission and authority that comes from a publisher or talk show host or even a blogger saying, "I pick you." Once you reject that impulse and realize that no one is going to select you--that Prince Charming has chosen another house--then you can actually get to work.

If you're hoping that the HR people you sent your resume to are about to pick you, it's going to be a long wait. Once you understand that there are problems just waiting to be solved, once you realize that you have all the tools and all the permission you need, then opportunities to contribute abound.

No one is going to pick you. Pick yourself.

My Spring Equinox 2016 Newsletter

Nicki Edgell


I’m very excited to bring you this year’s Spring Equinox Newsletter.  It’s a great time of new beginnings and of letting go of past wounds.  This can be a time of emotional and physical change with great possibilities for the next 6 months to bring what you want in your life into fruition.  With this in mind, I have finally mastered mailchimp to bring you this newsletter!  I am also emerging on social media.   Many of you will already be members of my Nutrition and Healing facebook group. If not, do ask to be added.   I share there anything to do with health and healing.  I have also just started a blog  which you can follow called http://nikkenergy.blogspot.co.uk.  I love these interactive means of keeping in touch and welcome questions or feedback.
So what does this equinox hold in store?  You will be feeling those letting go/pulling energies already.  You or those around you may already have been experiencing headaches, rashes, bloating, irritability, nausea, cravings, heavy, achy limbs, flu-like symptoms or lack of energy recently. I am seeing a lot of itchy skin issues in my practice at the moment. These symptoms are signs that the toxins leaving your body are overwhelming your lymph, blood and liver. This is quite normal for the spring time equinox.

The Spring Equinox has long been celebrated as a time of beginning and renewal when day and night are equal length and herald longer daylight hours and an expanding energy in the earth and in our bodies. This is the time when the energy of the earth changes its spin and can literally send us into a spin energetically and into a natural detox.  This letting go of toxicity can be on a physical and emotional level.  It doesn’t always go smoothly and can need a little help to bring energy to all parts of ourselves to aid elimination and letting go.

With all the detoxification your body is going through you can support yourself at this time and reduce those symptoms by following these guidelines. 
  • Keep those toxins moving out of the body with a pint of warm water first thing, and again mid-morning, mid-afternoon and mid-evening.  I recommend and drink myself from the pimag waterfall filter as it provides you with alkaline, structured, mineralised living water.  This really helps combat acidity and dehydration in the body.  I love the clean taste and light/smoothness of the water I drink. I know a number of you are already enjoying this delicious water. Here’s the link if you want to check it out. http://nikkenwater.co.uk
  • For breakfast, have some protein to help avoid blood sugar symptoms listed above. Move away from porridge/cereals and try a smoothie made with soaked almonds and seeds, fruit, natural yoghurt, avocado and a few green leaves or mushroom omelette or pancakes made with egg and mashed banana and cinnamon.
  • Eat seasonally and start to alter the foods you eat to match the energy of the spring.  Make the transition towards a lighter diet with lots of chlorophyll-rich green vegetables. Slowly increase your raw intake but still include some warming soups and stews with plenty of bone broth and add plenty of fresh herbs just before serving. Cut down or eliminate alcohol which will tax your liver more at this time.  Cut down on sugars of all sorts (bread, cakes, cereals etc) which are inflammatory.
  • Include ginger daily to support your kidneys.  Increase potassium rich foods – green leafy vegetables, parsley, watercress, peas, bananas, apples, avocados, raisins, apricots, nuts and oily fish.
  • Use naturopathic techniques such as daily dry skin brushing with a natural bristle brush, brushing towards your heart. This stimulates your lymphatic system.  Also, tap lightly across your chest, just under your collar bone to stimulate your thymus gland.  Take epsom salt baths 3 x a week at this time of year.  You may need to use enemas or a colonic at this time to help support and clear organs that may be struggling. You may also consider a far infrared sauna or using the far infrared sleep products that I recommend from Nikken.
     
  • Exercise is really important to keep the lymph moving.  Using the high intensity interval training method everyone can maximise the effects of short bursts of exercise, even those of you lacking in energy.   Also start taking longer walks in nature if you haven’t been doing so over winter.  Start digging in the garden or allotment. Removing the weeds and preparing the ground for the new growth and abundance both metaphorically and in reality.
     
  • Reconnect with nature’s energies of magnetics from the earth, the far infrared warming energy of the sun and the negative ions we breathe down by the sea or in the woods.  I think we need as much help here as we can get as most of us live 90% indoors. That’s why I teach about Nikken and their use of these natural energies in products that we use in our daily lives in our homes: to drink clean energised alkaline water, breathe negative ion rich clean air, to have quality sleep cocooned in nature’s energies, to bathe and shower in clean filtered water. You can read more about these technologies at http://nikkenearth.com
     
  • Use techniques like Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping) to help clear emotional blocks.  I also now offer Theta Healing to help reprogram neural pathways and change limiting belief systems that are causing stress.
Finally, remember to be gentle with yourself over the next couple of weeks.  Take time out to look after yourself and focus on keeping those routes of elimination open. Create positive thoughts and intentions and focus on what you would love to create in your life during the expansive growth of the next 6 months. 



Spring Smoothie Recipe

1 apple,
Large handful of spinach – chopped,
Grated ginger ,Small handful of soaked arame seaweed,
½ avocado,
Juice of ½  lemon,
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds, and chia seeds
1 tbsp ground almonds,
½ pint coconut milk
1tsp turmeric powder


Blend all ingredients together.  Add any supplements you take – eg. fish oil, vitamin D3, B complex – and if too thick add some more filtered pimag water to get your desired consistency -  chew it as you drink and enjoy!


If you would like help with moving through this equinox period smoothly or would like to harness the power of this natural time to detox, to lose weight, gain more energy, sleep better, reset/rebalance your hormones…give me a call or email me for a chat or to book in for an assessment or a 1-to-1.

If you would like to find out more about how to protect, support and energize yourself naturally, I am now doing regular demos to give you an experience of what happens instantly in your body when you are near nature’s energizing and balancing magnetic, far infrared and negative ions.  Ask for details of my next dates* if you’d like to come along and see the magic for yourself.

Wishing you a very happy and smooth transition to Spring.  Nicki x

The Waterfall - Welcome to New Customers!

Nicki Edgell


We are thrilled so many of you have invested in the PiMag Waterfall System. Below is a selection of commonly asked questions about setting it up and using it in the first few days:

  • Should I use it for my kettle? Yes, definitely - it will transform teas and coffees, or plain hot water if you drink that (as recommended by many nutritionists and health practitioners). You will taste the difference and the boiled water will still be doing you alot more good than the tap variety.
  • My Waterfall water tastes a bit "metallic". Don't worry, this is quite common when the filter and/or the stones are brand new. New filters should be soaked for 8-12 hours or overnight if possible, and water passed through several times before insertion. The waterfall should then be flushed through with the new filter in place several times before the water reaches it's normal taste. New stones should also be soaked at first and then will settle down over the first few days of actual use.
  • The usual mechanism for the tap is to push it in to release the water, but you can flick it into a forward position for a constant flow.
  • I can't get my kettle or water jug under the tap. If possible the waterfall works well if positioned over the edge of the counter or windowsill so the tap overhangs, or on a raised platform. Otherwise a light plastic jug can be used to transfer water (also useful for filling at the top too). 
  • The water flow is quite slow. This can happen especially with new filters. You can press down on the foam segments at the top of the filter to release air pockets and increase the flow. Also remember to keep the top tank topped up in time to provide the water you need (but don't overfill too quickly as the bottom tank will overflow!). The gravity system relies on the weight of the top tank water falling through the filter. Many people get into a routine of filling the top tank just once or twice a day, first thing in the morning, or last thing at night. The filters do contain a lot of dense material that the water must flow through but the speed of flow is actually much quicker than many alternative systems and will improve over time.
  • Does the filter expiry light work? Don't worry about this too much, we have had reports that it can be unreliable. Expect to replace your filter around the 3 month mark (dependent on use and your tap water), but you will also realise when the water loses its optimum taste. The filter will also become more soiled over time.
  • Does the system need cleaning? Not a huge amount. We recommend a thorough clean round of the emptied tanks preferably monthly, but at least at filter change time.
  • Is it safe to leave standing water in the system without use? If you do go away for a few days it is best to flush the system through.
  • There is a leak around the tap area. Make sure the tap mechanism is securely tightened. There is a white plastic bolt mechanism on the inside of the lower tank that should be hand tight (sometimes loosening it before re-tightening will improve the seal).
  • How do I replace the filter? First remove and discard the outer plastic cellophane of the new filter. Remove the grey cap and the foam pre-filters in the top of the filter. Soak the foam items and the main unit in a container of tap water for several hours or overnight. Take off the top half of the Waterfall and gently release the old filter by pushing it back up through the hole. Put the top half of the Waterfall back in position. Reassemble the new filter replacing the foam parts and clicking the grey cap back into place. Push the filter into the hole in the bottom of the top half of the Waterfall and push it firmly in place avoiding the stones in the bottom half of the Waterfall and ensuring a solid seal is made with the purple rubber washer around the top of the filter. Flush the whole system through several times with tap water before use. For a full visual demo please see the video in the next bullet point.  
  • I've forgotten how to put the system back together. Key things to note are the filter unit sits in the hole in the top tank but must be gently pushed down so that the purple rubber seal sits snug and prevents tap water leaking into the bottom tank without passing through the filter. The stones sit around the edge of the bottom tank not impeding the well in the centre where the bottom of the filter is located (the filter does not touch the bottom of the tank or the stones). A full video on set up and filter changes is here https://youtu.be/AJsHND7MS7I
  • Can I recycle the old filters? Yes, the filter can be opened and the contents can be used in the garden or plant pots and the empty plastic container recycled in your normal recycling. It is worth retaining a spare grey cap in case of breakage or loss.
  • Can I use the water for pets and plants? Yes, the water is nutrient rich "living" water appreciated by all living things.
  • Where do I get replacement filters or parts? Please contact Nicki who will be able to order these. You can also set up an autoship function where your filters will be automatically delivered (there is a discount on the price).
If you have any questions at all about your Waterfall please contact Nicki on (0044)77864 05366 or nicki@pimag.eu

Record of the Week

Nicki Edgell
Full House by Fairport Convention


A little bit off topic (OT) but part of a holistic approach to well-being and that definately includes great music!

This album was particularly remarkable following the celebrated Liege and Lief and coming shortly after the untimely departure of Sandy Denny. The folky authenticity of the incomparable Dave Swarbrick's gravelly vocals offer something completely different to Denny's angelic singing.

Standout tracks include Walk Awhile and the 10 minute Richard Thompson epic Sloth.

For a great version of Sir Patrick Spens and nostalgic summer festival footage please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlococGqzg8 . Stay for the amusing helicopter banter.

A bumper month for Nikkenergy

Nicki Edgell

Mynikken.eu writes: Nikken Consultants are on fire! With an unprecedented commitment to customer acquisition, our North American Nikken Consultants have already registered a record-breaking number of new customers in the month of January. Fantastic new pricing, coupled with a broad product offering of Nikken essentials, literally overwhelmed our call centre last month with record sales volume.
Nikken's CEO and Chairman of the board explains, "Thousands of Wellness Homes were started last month! We are hearing from Seniors, Executives, Silvers, Golds and Platinums who are now convinced that the Nikken Business Plan is the way to achieve a Life in Balance. They are now sharing how comfortable they feel retailing the products. Evidently we have tapped into a powerful consumer need, combining value with outstanding products. There are great things planned for the product line this year, and equally exciting promotions to help our Consultants in all Nikken Markets grow their businesses. This will be a very exciting year for everyone in the Nikken Family. The sky is the limit!"
We are confident the success relaunching the company in North America will have been repeated in the UK and Europe this February. Our team has seen unprecedented activity which we are confident will build momentum going forward with scores of new customers beginning to experience and live the products. Some of these will want to share with others too and will sign up as consultants. Please do contact us if you are interested in joining Nikken.
