Mental health is equally, if not more important than our physical health. Set your mind and avoid the things that bring you down. Material things are poor measures of wealth as compared to one’s health. A person of material wealth in the absence of mental health renders the millions of dollars worthless.
How could we forget the 28th day of August, 2014 when a powerful GMDR (Grand Membership Drive Rally) was organized by the Kano team of Edmark International with a great number of attendees trooping in from the four corners of tunbin giwa. The event started at 11:00am with the opening prayer, followed by series of dance energizers. The agenda continued with the seminar’s energetic speaker, SM Nasiru M. Nuhu. He started by acknowledging that external health begins from the inside. He showed the attendees the modern day challenges and how they affect healthy living, especially with the kinds of lifestyles we engage in; poor quality of water and food which eventually lead to various diseases, all of which 90% roots from our colon being unhealthy. He went on to educate the attendees on the dangers of obesity and why every individual should take appropriate measures to overcome it. He added that every single person who has cancer has a PH (POTENTIAL OF HYDROGEN) high in acidity. At this juncture, the P4 healthy and slimming products were introduced as he carefully explained the four health products that will play an important role in the life of anyone who aims for good health. Namely, SHAKEOFF PHYTO FIBER for detoxification, MRT (MEAL REPLACEMENT THERAPHY) to burn fat and nourish the system, SPLINA LIQUID CHLOROPHYL which helps in balancing the body’s acidity and alkalinity as well as cleansing the system with a rich supply of oxygen. Finally, the two brilliant coffees (GINSENG AND REDYEAST). He also introduced the most stable and proven marketing plan i.e. the opportunity of lifetime wherein Edmark gives out 9 great bonuses starting from the retail profit down to the house fund. On top of that, the 71% total payout to distributors makes Edmark unique and different from all the other MLM companies. Products and income testimonies help in buttressing the seminar. The seminar was indeed a mind blowing one for all who attended it.
