Introducing the "Wellness Home"
can be a
Every Home a Wellness Home
For the next few weeks we are going to introduce you to the concept of a Wellness Home.
Most of us consider our homes to be a safe, healthy environment, but in reality, our homes are often very toxic places. We need to ask, is our home helping us be healthy? Or, is our home making us sick?
This is often referred to as Sick House Syndrome (SHS) and has also been referenced in literature as Sick Building Syndrome. The symptoms associated with SHS include many chronic issues such as: Headache, dizziness, nausea, eye, nose or throat irritation, dry cough, dry or itching skin, difficulty in concentration, fatigue, sensitivity to odors, hoarseness of voice, allergies, cold, flu-like symptoms, increased incidence of asthma attacks and personality changes. The cause of the symptoms is not known; however, it has been suggested a few key factors include:
1. Chemical contaminants from outdoor and indoor sources.
2. Biological contaminants.
3. Inadequate ventilation.
4. Electromagnetic radiation.
5. Psychological factors, stress.
6. Poor and inappropriate lighting with absence of sunlight, bad acoustics, poor ergonomics and humidity.
A Nikken Wellness Home is designed to address many health concerns, including environmental toxins, contagions, dehydration, poor sleep quality, weight matters and nutrition. In a practical sense, the Wellness Home creates an environment that enables us to make healthier choices every day.
These are the same topics that we discuss in the Selfcare Awakening as to why so many of us are not as healthy as we can be. The Nikken Wellness Home products are categorized into three specific areas:
- Improved rest and relaxation through our patented natural energy products and kenko sleep products
- A healthier environment with clean air the way nature intended it to be.
- Filtered, structured alkaline water for pennies a gallon.
- Complete nutrition and organic weight management products.
- Skincare support and haircare product lines based on natural ingredients and organic principles.
These areas create your Wellness Home, by making improvements in each of them, you can make your home the healthiest and safest place for you and your family to live and thrive.
The awesome thing about a Wellness Home is that any home can be a Wellness Home, by utilizing Nikken products and technologies to make your home the healthiest environment possible for you and your family. Our motto is “Every home a Wellness Home”.
The first installment of our Wellness Home series will discuss indoor air quality. We spend 90% of our time indoors and daily exposure to indoor air pollution can be 2 to 5 times greater than what we are exposed to outdoors. Recent studies show that respiratory problems are increasing. Allergies currently affect 30 percent of adults and 40 percent of children. This is the Impetus for next week’s blog and what you can do about it.
We invite you to join us on this “open house” and learn how you can be Healthy by Choice with a Nikken Wellness Home.
Be Healthy by Choice, not by Chance
