One of our top editors was great. Until he wasn’t. Dennis, renamed here for privacy reasons, is a great colleague and friend of us — good-looking, successful in his career, and in a great long-term relationship. Someone who you’d say has it all.
He graduated from Georgetown University with a Master’s in literature and was quick to advance the ranks from writer to editor. Dennis was an inspiration. Except for one terrible problem.
At one period, Dennis started distancing himself from the office and our team. He suffered from severe stress and anxiety, and the signs were showing — he started having grey hairs, developing acne breakouts, and experiencing back pain. He was successful, but the side effects of working long hours were catching up.
Now, Dennis is a close friend of mine, so we kept in touch. He knew the problem was in his lifestyle. He switched careers to a more relaxed position in a local publishing house, started doing yoga, eating healthy. But his problems didn’t stop.
Dennis spent two months trying to get back to his old self, but that did not change - gray hair, acne breakouts and back pain.
But he always had an interest in traditional medicine. And he decided to give it a try by going to Japan and speaking to various doctors.
Some doctors tried tests, x-rays and biopsies, but no one could identify why Dennis had his symptoms.
Nothing seemed to work. Until one morning, talking to a farmer in a local market, he expressed his health concerns.
“You must go to this hidden Ryokan (a spiritual retreat) where many famous Japanese go to find cures for their problems.” The farmer said.
And so Dennis did — he went to this hidden spiritual retreat for a week.
For a week, Dennis learned from the local monks — he cleaned the common spaces with the monks, picked natural food, did yoga, and he started feeling a bit better.
Around the 5th day in this retreat, a practitioner noticed Dennis experiencing severe back pain while he was trying to get up from his bed. He looked at Dennis being in pain, observed his body's movements, the graying of his hair, and the acne breakouts on his face.
The practitioner told Dennis that his body appeared to be overloaded with toxins. It seemed, he said, that Dennis had lived a very stressful lifestyle and forgotten to take care of his body for too long. There was a natural remedy, he said, that Dennis should try.
“The feet are full of the most sensitive nerves and the body's energy centers. All body systems flow through the feet. But when was the last time you took proper care of your feet? ”
The question dazzled Dennis. He knew the practitioner had a point — even if Dennis tried eating right, going to yoga class, or jogging — he never quite thought about taking care of the part of his body that’s amongst the most essential in maintaining a healthy blood flow throughout the body.
The practitioner handed Dennis special feet patches that he said were made from various herbs — a century-old ailment the Japanese had been using to stabilize blood flow in the feet and help reduce the number of toxins accumulated there. After all, he said, the feet is where the first chakra is — it’s your connection with the Earth, and if you do not take good care of it, you’re going to lose this connection.
The patches had a pleasant lavender scent and were to be worn at night. The following night, Dennis put the patches on his feet according to the practitioner's instructions. He experienced a pleasant warmth and comfort, which helped him fall asleep faster.
The following morning, as Dennis woke and took the patches off, they were dyed in black. Rich, full black. It seemed strange because Dennis had washed his feet the previous night so there was no way for them to be dirty. Dennis went back to the practitioner and asked what the reason may be.
"According to ancient Japanese medical knowledge, our human body has over 360 acupuncture points. More than 60 of the acupuncture points are located on the soles of the feet. Our feet are reflective zones over our internal organs. ”the practitioner began to explain.
He continued, “these patches stimulate the 60 acupuncture points on your feet and help detoxify your body. The herb mix draws out toxins from the feet in a safe and non-invasive way. The toxins leaving your body are what dye the patches to black”
Dennis couldn’t believe it — and he was right in his disbelief. Never in his life had he heard of anything similar. But he decided to give the patches a try and continued using them for another week. Each night he would put clean white patches on his feet, and in the morning, he would wake up to the patches being richly black.
However, with each night, the patches seemed to be less and less black. By day 6, he noticed that his face was turning brighter and regaining healthy texture. The graying of his hair seemed to have stopped. Further, even getting out of bed was easier — the pains in his back were lessened.
After a week of use, Dennis almost cried. His back pain and acne breakouts had subsided so much that he almost forgot there had been anything wrong. He wanted to purchase more patches to bring back home, but he was told that they were a local ailment that would not be given up to the wider world. But Dennis now knew how to fix his problems, and he vowed to recreate the patches, and even improve on them!
Once he left the retreat, Dennis came back to the same town where he had met the farmer in a local market and told him the patches' story and how they helped solve Dennis’s problems. The farmer nodded his head and said that a friend of his had made something similar to what Dennis had described.
He then went on to introduce Dennis to Kai Akira, a childhood friend of his.
Kai Akira was an aging Japanese doctor. He possessed wisdom passed through generations, care, patience and love. He knew that for the body to be healed the mind and soul should be taken care of as well.
Kai spent his time carefully picking herbs in the forest and later mixing them like his grandfather and father did before. As Dennis and the local farmer came to visit Kai Akira, there was a peaceful rustling of the leaves in the forest close to his home, a pond with koi fish near his little house, surrounded in serenity and silence. Here, the old man Kai Akira explained to Dennis the idea of a ‘healing’.
The “healing” is a process, a meditation. The herbs get mixed into a powder, powder is added into a bandage for the feet. That bandage is later perfected into a patch by his own children - the patch he calls Kenkou. A simple, natural solution to reduce the effects of stress and toxicity that are associated with fast-paced modern life
So Dennis tried the Kenkou patch, and he discovered that it worked even better than what he had tried at the spa. Together with Kai's children, Dennis made dozens of prototypes and tested each version. They gave samples to young and older adults suffering from stress and anxiety, and had visible symptoms of a stressful life on their bodies.
What was astonishing was that not only people with back pain were helped, but healthy people with no pain reported a massive boost in vitality, energy and well being too.
At last, Dennis decided to bring the secret traditional Japanese herb ailment to the U.S., sourcing initial production from Kai Akira, and calling the patches 'Kenkou’ to show respect to the Japanese doctor.
Dennis gave out hundreds of samples of Kenkou to everyone he knew. With only word of mouth, both people who were suffering and people who loved the new energy they felt were coming back again and again to Dennis to ask for more foot patches.
Kenkou is now available to everyone! Dennis formed a company to sell the original, powerful, perfected Kenkou TO EVERYONE! He decided to market them directly to the public at a reasonable price. This was so he could control the quality. The manufacturing process has to be precise. The herbs have to be picked and dried in rural Japan. The process of packing must be exact, herb after herb, just like Kai Akira packaged them. Dennis knew there might be imitators, but no other company had the real secret of which specific herbs need to be picked for the patch. The first run of Kenkou EXPLODED. Reorders and new orders piled in. Pretty soon, the demand for Kenkou was outstripping the herb pickers' ability to pick enough herbs!
Kenkou aids your body in toxin removal by using the power of reflexology to tap into acupuncture points on the soles of your feet. These foot pads offer a convenient and healthy way to clear your body of toxins, helping you live a stronger and happier life. The detox patches also contain wood vinegar and negative ions which are beneficial for our body.
Furthermore, foot patches also help in improving blood circulation. Poor blood circulation symptoms include cold hands and feet, muscle cramps, tiredness, heavy or aching legs. If you have any of them, Kenkou is believed to aid with their relief.
When blood circulates through the foot, the patch utilizes these points to draw out toxins. As toxins are pushed away, they end up at the lower extremities such as the feet. Gravity is also aiding in bringing those heavy metals and toxins to our feet — the place where you put Kenkou to extract the toxins from your body.*
When you wake up, you may find the pads yellow, brown or black. That is said to be the reaction of the pads eliminating the toxins through the night. The first few nights you use Kenkou, expect to see the pads dark. As you use them continuously, they will start being of lighter color — this may imply that your body is carrying fewer toxins.
Kenkou is developed based on centuries-old Asian medicinal wisdom. It tackles the true, hidden cause behind a lot of symptoms that your body may be experiencing by removing the toxins — the root cause of many pains & problems — from your body.
Kenkou is made from herbs found in the Japanese forests! It is all-natural. The herbs are of Asian origin, tried-and-true by the local healing-men through Centuries. No pollution is caused in making Kenkou patches - they are environmentally friendly
One of the key benefits of Kenkou is stress relief. The pads comfort the soles of the feet at night, claiming to rid the body of stress and fatigue that accumulate through the day.
Kenkou also promises to drive away your anxiety while you sleep. After a few days of use, you should feel more ease and clarity in your mind and body upon waking up.
Whether you’re having trouble sleeping or not, Kenkou can help improve your sleep. The comfort Kenkou provides for your soles should make your night more blissful and improve your sleep quality so that you wake up well-rested and active.
Kenkou is anti-aging - it improves your skin as well as organs! The removal of toxins helps clean pores, so you should see a reduction in acne breakouts and other skin-related problems. Expect to see your skin looking glossy and young after using Kenkou !
Keep them in your bed table, so you don’t have to walk around once you put them on. Remove the packaging and place the pad on the central area of the bottom of your foot, and apply the attached strip over the pad to make sure that it stays in place. And that’s it! You can go to sleep, and keep Kenkou on overnight — only remove them in the morning. Once you peel them off, you should see the results by the color of the patches. Each patch is for single-use, so apply new ones every night.
Kenkou will give you the stress relief that you’ve been missing. You will have more energy, feel healthier, and, overall, happier. Everyone will wonder what your secret is!
