As a congruent female and an Independent Nikken Wellness Consultant, I find that the Five Pillars of Health are so important for transgender care.
Healthy Mind - Being transgender has been proven to be a medical condition and is considered so by the World Health Organization. However, it's important that trans patients receive good psychological care as well and follow guidelines that were called the Harvey Benjamin Standards of Care. Now called WPATH.
Healthy Body - Hormone Replacement Therapy and Surgery are part of the treatment for trans patients. There's also standards for this as well. With the introduction of hormones in the body, patients should be on an aspirin regimen and blood work needs to be conducted in order that the body's getting the right dosage of hormones. Diet and exercise are important as well. At all times trans patients should NOT SMOKE or use TOBACCO products or drink excessive amounts of alcohol during treatment.
Healthy Finances - It costs money for treatment as some insurance companies do not pay for adequate transgender specialized care. It's also difficult for trans patients to pay for treatment because the laws in many countries including the US make it possible for big corporations and state and local government jobs to be fired for having a medical condition called Gender Dysphoria.
Healthy Society - The only way trans people can win or gain acceptance is through visibility and demonstrating that they can be productive members of society. People are afraid of what they don't understand and in order to have a healthy society we must put aside biases and focus on how we can work together to make this world a better place.
Healthy Family - Many trans people have not been afforded the blessing of a close and accepting family. The stigma behind this sometimes misunderstood medical condition can lead to family alienation, leaving trans patients to fend for themselves in society. Often times some trans people turn to sex work on the streets in order to survive. This is unacceptable from a society that prides itself in being open minded, accepting and tolerant of marginalized groups of people.
Meeting all Five Pillars of Health can make a person's spirit shine for the rest of the world to see.
Luckily Nikken is a company that is open minded and accepting of all people, including members of marginalized communities. If you believe in helping others reach their full potential in the Five Pillars of Health, then you're a good fit.
Nikken provides a great opportunity for trans men and woman who believe that good health and wellness is for everyone. It's a great way to own your own business and help at least three additional people to teach three others to do the same. It's a matter of duplication and consistency. If you want your business to succeed, one will treat is as real job not a hobby.
The products have helped me recover from my Gender Reassignment Surgery in 2016. I feel that the researched and developed technologies can have a positive impact in everybody's lives who want to live healthier and achieve the ultimate wellness goals they have for themselves with their doctors guidance and care. To me Nikken products go hand in hand with one's doctors and or medical and mental professionals.
Welcome to my Wellness Blog. In this blog I hope to share wellness tips and information for folks who want to live a healthier existence and building on Five Pillars of Health. Healthy Mind, Body, Finances, Society and Family. I'm hoping to touch on each one of these as we progress into the world of self care.
I've learned a lot about Gratitude in 2014 and I'm so blessed to be were I'm am. In 2014 a lot went right for me as I was able to make some positive changes in my life and I've managed to come out on top!
This past summer I left a high paying job and the friends I loved to go out on my own and build my business in and around my home town. I grew up in the Winston Salem, Greensboro area of North Carolina called the Piedmont. When I got there I realized that things were not the same as they were when I left two decades ago. Some of the people I worked with were not very kind and the part time job I had didn't pay what it was supposed to. The hours were not there either. I worked my wellness business but I was alone and had limited team support. They were all here in the Triangle and we were a couple hundred miles apart. I also had a crazy neighbor who lived below me who would complain saying I was too loud. She wrote hateful notes to me, leaving them on my door. Not a very friendly welcome.
My loneliness increased and my determination was waning. I had my dogs love and support but they could sense my despair at times. I would have liked to have spent more time with some of my siblings nearby, but they were not too happy about the way I was living my life. Some of my old friends moved away and the economy wasn't what it used to be after RJ Reynolds collapse in Winston Salem.
My money started to run out and the thought of being homeless scared me, so I reached out to my brother Z. He knew the situation I was in and knew about my psycho neighbor and he told me to come live with him until I got on my feet.
He and some of his friends helped me move back to the triangle. With my two dogs we moved in with my brother Z in September 2014. He has been there for me my entire life but for some reason I think I'm here for him too. He's using our wellness products and with his scientific mind he's learning about how they work.
So I'm grateful to my brother Z for helping me get back on my feet. He's enabled me to build my wellness business by cutting my expenses so I can invest in my it. I've lowered my bills so I'm not living above my means and I can save money to invest in my business.
He's also takes care of his little sister and he looks out for me. I'm paying is forward by giving him discounts on his products and helping out with expenses. I know the more successful I am in my business the more dedicated I am to making sure that my brother Z never wants for anything as he gets older.
Now that 2015 is almost over this year has been more productive and my business has grown tremendously. I'm doing a You Tube film series called I'm Your Mum and getting back into Indie Film Making as well. Unfortunately I lost one of my dogs Kindsey of old age, but no doubt she's in heaven cheering me and Tiger (her son) on! I'd say that I'm not where I want to be, but thank God (and my brother Z) I'm not where I used to be.

One of the things I realized is that working towards financial freedom is not just a goal for me it's a must! I want more residual income, not living paycheck to paycheck. There's nothing else out there for me at my age when it comes to supporting myself, especially since I'm getting close to retirement and I'm not getting any younger.
I'm a single middle aged mom who doesn't have the crème de la crème of job choices at my fingertips. Big Corporations wouldn't have to pay a younger less experienced worker as much as an older more experienced one like me. Plus an older worker is closer to cashing in their retirement which most corporations don't want to pay and in many cases don't!
It's also a fact that woman get paid less for doing the same work as men and that sucks! I could work at a minimum wage job as a department store associate or wait tables at a restaurant, but we all know where that leads. It leads nowhere!
Although I agree that a job is a job, I want to work my own hours and spend more time with my family. I want to take vacations and do business sipping and Arnold Palmer on the beach somewhere instead of in a stuffy old board room.
I do Nikken because I can rest assured that I can't be fired because of who I am or what I look like. In Nikken, nobody can take away my retirement nor reduce or increase my hours or wages. As I move up the ladder of success I cant be demoted if I decide to take a break from Nikken. You never have to start over again because you can't move backwards. You don't find that in most MLM's.
But I want you to visit my Nikken Page and listen to the introduction videos and see what you think. If you decide to be part of our team please contact us to set up a free consultation. email@example.com.
I've often been asked how do Magnets work? Well I'm not sure of the technologies behind it but they've made a huge difference in my life. Whenever I have a headache or physical pain I don't have to take pills all the time to make the pain go away. I don't have to worry about stomach upset or stomach bleeding which some aspirins and Ibuprofen can cause. I also can't get addicted to using magnets because our magnets don't harm me.
I also have more energy and strength with my magnetic insoles, back flex, necklaces and bracelets. As a part time cashier I'm on my feet for at least 6 hours straight. The magnets give me more energy and strength to keep me going. Even the customers and my coworkers comment on how much energy I have and I tell them why I do. I tell them I'm not sure how they work but I can tell if I'm not using them.
But I wanted to share an article from a scientific perspective so that you can make up your own mind. I read this article in Science Daily and they break down the science behind magnets and it's uses.
