Nikken Wellness Technologies

With winter approaching us in Northern Hemisphere, I felt inspired to create a dedicated blog piece to health and wellbeing technologies, so that you have the knowledge you need to keep healthy this winter.


Even though you have your fair share of rain in some climates(!), especially Europe, you can still get dehydrated easily, as central heating goes on and dries the air out in your house or office space. You can remedy this with drinking more water of course, but no just any water. 
Lighting is so important in our lives and I am so pleased to see that lighting companies are really evolving in their understanding of how light impacts the human being and they are modifying their bulbs and systems to be much more responsive to human needs.

Feng Shui is the study of the human being's connection to nature, to the earth and to the cosmos and the application of such study to the built environment.

KenkoLightIn the Northern hemisphere we are hunkering down in good old British style, coats all buttoned up, hoods and collars grasped close as we head out into the chill winds on these short days that are getting darker and darker. Many people have a physical reaction to the reduction in light called SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder, which can give rise to feelings of depression and despair simply because the body is not receiving enough daylight. Modern research shows increasingly how we have a relationship between our body and light via the transfer of biophotons - "indeed, the human body emits biophotons, also known as ultraweak photon emissions (UPE), with a visibility 1,000 times lower than the sensitivity of our naked eye. While not visible to us, these particles of light (or waves, depending on how you are measuring them) are part of the visible electromagnetic spectrum (380-780 nm) and are detectable via sophisticated modern instrumentation."  [1],[2]
Goodness me there are too many of my friends and clients with this terrible flu, so I thought it might help to provide a few tips from the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective and a dose of Feng Shui too! Even I have had two colds one week apart, most unusual for me, so am starting on the fresh ginger tea! 1) Lemon & Ginger tea is very useful for expelling viruses because ginger expels damp and congestion in the body (where the viruses gain their foothold) and lemon helps to alkalise the body so that the immune system can function better. A convenient way of drinking this is to buy lemon/ginger tea bags (Twinings do a nice one and am sure there are some organic brands too) then add some FRESHLY chopped/grated ginger and a few slices of lemon - keep filling up teapot throughout the day with new boiling water. 
As Feng Shui consultants our job is to ascertain the health of an environment from an energetic perspective and provide suggestions for improvement. Aside from lifeforce energy there are also very practical considerations such as air and water quality, which is why I make it known to my Feng Shui clients and students that the Nikken products work really well to cleanse drinking water and clean indoor air which is often more polluted than outdoor air.
