Dr. Gregg Jantz Teaches Audiences to Defeat Their Anxiety in Seven Simple Steps

Dr. Gregg Jantz

SEATTLE , WASHINGTON, USA, November 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Gregg Jantz, a frequent speaker and gifted author on topics like depression and anxiety, gives audiences a fresh take on defeating their worries in his book Seven Answers for Anxiety. Through seven simple steps, he teaches readers how to overcome panic attacks and intense bouts of anxiety with an easy-to-adopt method.

Anxiety limits many people to their smallest selves, affecting job performance, relationships, ambition, and virtually all aspects of their lives. It’s a widespread problem that inhibits the actions of people around the world, affecting approximately 40 million adults in the United States alone.1 Dr. Gregg Jantz, a longtime researcher of anxiety and depression, hopes he can leave a positive impact on the lives of these individuals through his book Seven Answers for Anxiety.

“Anxiety is crippling and it’s exhausting. It prevents people from expressing themselves honestly and living their best lives. I hope to give people who suffer anxious thoughts a resource to overcome their worries,” says Dr. Gregg Jantz.

In his book, Dr. Jantz helps readers identify the root causes of their anxieties and instructs them on how to break free of anxious thoughts. Through his seven steps, Dr. Gregg Jantz hopes to instruct anyone struggling with anxiety, including those with extreme panic attacks, how to create an escape door during their problems.

His Christian-centric beliefs and his extensive history and research with anxiety disorders empower Dr. Jantz’s narrative, making it a compelling read for those with their own disorders and without. Reviewers of Seven Answers for Anxiety have called the book “simple to understand,” and a combination of “spiritual tools with solid psychological explanations.”

He’s a bestselling author who has published over 30 books in his career, spanning topics from anxiety and eating disorders to depression. He’s a regular contributor to Psychology Today and The Huffington Post, and has appeared on channels such as CNN, ABC, CBS and FOX. His credentials are numerous, but it’s his unique approach to problem solving that makes the work of Dr. Jantz so useful and approachable.

“The "what if's" in life are too many to count. They can overwhelm a person in no time. I want to show people how to find peace in these moments––even with all those troubles and worries trying to settle on their shoulders––but in a way that resonates in all areas of their lives,” says Dr. Gregg Jantz.

He believes in a “whole-person” approach, which means he takes emotional, intellectual, physical, relational, and spiritual existence into consideration. His solutions prompt readers to search within themselves, keeping these various aspects in mind, to arrive at a holistic, long-term solution. Through his approach, Dr. Gregg Jantz helps those with anxiety emerge as whole, healed human beings.

Janie P. Bess to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

FAIRFIELD, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Janie P. Bess is the author of Visions: A Memoir, in which she recounts her life story and the story of her son David Jr., affectionately known to his friends and family as “Little David.”

When Little David was first born he was already having problems seeing and hearing.

“We were having problems with my son because most people had never seen a deaf-blind baby before,” his mother recalls. “The doctors suggested we put him in a place where he could get individual care. Of course, we refused to do that because even though he couldn't see or hear, we could tell our baby was a bright, smart little baby.”

Little David would lose his sight and hearing completely before he turned five years old, but he had enough memory to keep doing the things he’d done.

“He was disciplined just like a seeing-hearing child and he was treated like he was seeing-hearing,” says Bess. “When his brothers and sisters came along, he learned how to fold diapers and put them away and bring me a baby bottle and hold the baby when I had to walk off for a minute or something. He learned colors. He could wash dishes better than a seeing person. And he learned how to walk and find his way through the house without bumping into the walls anymore.”

“He did not understand why people can see and hear. He never said, ‘Why am I blind and deaf?’ He asked ‘Why can they see and hear?’ He thought everybody was deaf-blind.”

When Little David finally entered a special school for his disabilities, he was four years, nine months old.

“We were supposed to stay the night and we did, but one night they sent me home because they didn't need me. He was already so independent, making his bed and going to the bathroom, showering himself.”

Of course, Little David is not so little anymore. Now 56 years old, Little David works and lives independently.

“He’s grown up to be a fabulous young man,” says Bess. “Nobody told David he had any limitations. We only told him he was deaf-blind. So for that reason he swims, he fishes, he rides horses. He travels alone on planes and buses. He does everything. If you saw him walking the streets you wouldn't know he was blind.”

Today, David and his wife Shirley who is also deaf and blind work for Strategies To Empower People, beating the odds and living life to its fullest!

CUTV News Radio will feature Janie P. Bess in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on November 20th at 4pm EST and with Jim Masters on November 27th at 4pm EST.

Plasma Pen Pro (PPP) Offering Training And Certification In Plasma Fibroblast Treatments Using The Plamere Plasma Pen.

Plamere Plasma Fibroblast Eyelid Lift Treatment by Plasma Pen Pro (PPP)

Plasma skin tightening is in huge demand but the number of certified technicians is low. PPP offer the best in Plasma Fibroblast Training and Certification.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The art and science of Plasma Fibroblast in the beauty industry is not a new, but with new and better technology and equipment, this treatment has now come to the forefront of the beauty industry.

Most men and women seek out the next best non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that will have them looking younger and having a more refreshed looked, without the use of chemicals, toxins or scalpels. Well, that treatment has arrived in a procedure simply called: Plasma Fibroblast. This treatment uses a Plasma Pen that produces an arc, similar to a lightning bolt, that carbonizes the skin (a controlled burn) that produces what looks like a dot on the skin. Once the skin is carbonized, it contracts, causing skin tightening, and the residual heat from the arc goes into the dermis causing the skin to produce collagen, which in turn plumps the skin. Therefore, this treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and can remove moles, skin tags and even warts.

The results of having a Plasma Fibroblast treatment have been outstanding. The recovery time for such a treatment is 5-7 days, and it is only social downtime, as the carbonized dots on the skin heal. This procedure can give the client an eyelid lift, eyebrow lift, neck lift, tummy tuck, ear lift, crows feet reduction, jowl reduction, wrinkle reduction, and more. The sky is the limit with this procedure.

You've heard the good news, and now for some bad news. The quality of Plasma Pens very as much as that of lasers. The best Plasma Pen that has been sold and trained around the world is the Plamere Plasma Pen. This pen is FDA approved and CE approved, and is the only Plasma Pen Rose Cruz now uses to teach her Plamere Plasma Pen Pro Courses. "Although there are other pens on the market, we have found that the Plamere is now the leader in the plasma fibroblast industry. Insurance companies know the pen, and have been keen to insure our student in the USA knowing that we train with this pen." There are many other pens sold on asian websites, however, most of these pens are unstable and break down easily, or each pen has a different energy and can cause burns and/or scarring.

Technicians in the beauty industry can trust that Plasma Pen Pro (PPP) have the experience in the industry, and are wanting to share that experience with the next generation of Plasma Fibroblast Technicians. They have completed hundreds of treatments, and have trained hundreds of students nationally and internationally. PPP have just announced their USA Plamere Plasma Pen Pro Tour. Their tour starts in New York City on January 14-15, and Rose Cruz will be travelling from the East Coast to the West Coast to spread her knowledge in the Plasma Fibroblast Industry with all those students who want to add this treatment to their current menu offerings.

Finding new opportunities in the beauty world can often be quite difficult considering the competitive nature surrounding it that exists in most countries. That's what makes the news about plasma lifts, also known as Plasma Fibroblast treatments, so interesting from a business perspective. The even better news is the worldwide leaders in the space Rose Cruz and Plasma Pen Pro (PPP) are working on expanding their teaching reach even further – and this means bringing on new partners willing to host and distribute the Plasma Pen Pro Plasma Fibroblast Training and Certification Course. The opportunity is a win-win for all involved PPP, their partners, the students of the course, and ultimately the people who benefits from the plasma pen treatments.

“Plasma Fibroblast training is the present and future of in the beauty industry, and it is only growing bigger by the day,” remarked Rose Cruz from Plasma Pen Pro. “We have seen very real success stories from our partners and we know this is a trend that will just continue to grow. When you have a business model that works, an amazing product in plasma fibroblast training and certification, and a team that are experts in instruction, the sky is really the limit.”

Plasma Pen Pro have held successful classes across the world, in places like Canada, United States, and Australia. The team is more-than-open to discuss offering their classes and certification in a long list of other nations and encourage interested parties to reach out and discuss details.

Some of the areas plasma skin lift treatments can help include Fine Lines, Eyebrow Ptosis, Crows Feet Lines, Nasal Labial Folds, Laugh Lines, Smoker's and Kissing Lines, Neck Lines, and Drooping Skin & Loose Skin.

Reviews of the plasma fibroblast treatments continue to be positive across the board.

Janice S., from Australia, recently said, “I took Plasma Pen Pro training and achieved my certification with Rose Cruz. I was able to find a job in almost immediately and not only love it, but it pays very well. Five-stars.” More positive reviews and stories can be found on their Google page, and boasts over 30 positive reviews by students and clients alike.

Retired U.S. DEA Senior Executive, Special Agent in Charge, Karl C. Colder Joins GenCanna Global as Senior Advisor

Former U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Senior Executive joins GenCanna in an advisory capacity on a range of security and policy issues.

Partnerships with law enforcement experts are critical to safely and securely expanding our business globally.”

— Matty Mangone-Miranda, GenCanna CEO

WINCHESTER, KENTUCKY, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — GenCanna Global Inc. (“GenCanna”) announced today that retired U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Senior Executive, Special Agent in Charge, Karl Colder will be joining the company in an advisory capacity on a range of security and policy issues.

Mr. Colder’s 32-year career includes serving in the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration as Senior Executive, Special Agent in Charge of the Washington Division Office responsible for operations in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia, and as Deputy Chief Inspector of the DEA Office of Professional Responsibility. Before retiring in 2018, Mr. Colder led DEA efforts to fight the heroin and prescription drug abuse epidemics in West Virginia.

“I am thrilled to join the GenCanna team. Companies operating in this space on a global scale should have security, compliance, and safety as their top priorities. GenCanna knows this and they are leading by example,” said Karl Colder. He added, “Also, as the 2018 Farm Bill moves through Congress, I am pleased about the clarifications surrounding the hemp crop's removal from the Controlled Substances Act, which will benefit our nation's farmers. A partnership like ours is long overdue and I am excited about what we will accomplish together.”

GenCanna, a vertically-integrated agriculture technology company specializing in the production of industrial hemp rich in CBD has been at the forefront of developing the rapidly expanding hemp industry. The company’s relationships with law enforcement on the state and federal level has been critical to the company’s success since its founding. These relationships are crucial in distinguishing federally-compliant hemp companies from companies in the medical marijuana and recreational marijuana markets.

“Partnerships with law enforcement experts are critical to safely and securely expanding our business globally,” said Matty Mangone-Miranda, CEO of GenCanna. Mr. Mangone-Miranda continued, “We welcome retired leaders from the DEA to ATF to Interpol. Their experience is essential in creating an organization with next-level leadership.”

GenCanna's hemp-derived products are already exempted from the Controlled Substances Act through compliant participation in the state and federal structures enabled by the Agricultural Act of 2014. GenCanna’s focused regulatory efforts have been critical to the success of the company and industry. These efforts are led by Steve Bevan, a co-Founder and the Company’s current President. Mr. Bevan is a co-founder of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable and presently serves its Secretary.

“Without our work with law enforcement and policymakers the hemp industry would not be where it is today,” commented Steve Bevan, GenCanna’s President. “We want everyone in our industry to adopt a similar attitude. It is my hope that our partnership with Mr. Colder can be a template for how companies create deeper, more integrated and meaningful relationships with law enforcement and other officials.”

Patrick Brown Supported Lisa MacLeod

Patrick Brown makes comeback in Brampton

Patrick Brown writes in the book that he went out of his way to support Lisa MacLeod when she came forward with her mental health battle. He went against the advice of the PC Chair of Eastern Ontario”

— OPI Books

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Support for Lisa MacLeod on mental health

November 15, 2018

Patrick Brown writes in the book that he went out of his way to support Lisa MacLeod when she came forward with her mental health battle. He went against the advice of the PC Chair of the Easter Ontario region and party officials and disqualified MacLeod’s nomination challengers. He articulates in his book about the support and help he provided. We know she has not read the book and we would hope that the journalistic community will review the content and report on this aspect accurately and without bias.

As Ontarian’s may be aware Mr. Brown introduced the largest proposed public investment in combating mental health in the People’s Guarantee, something the current Government continues to support.

Dean Baxendale

From Page 105-106 of the book

There was a candidate, Goldie Ghamari, who was running against MacLeod in Ottawa for the nomination. So what did I do? I called Ghamari and told her that she could run in any other riding, but not against MacLeod. Period. I thought she’d beat MacLeod handily, so I intervened to protect her. Six months later, another candidate, Ottawa businessman Riven Zhang, decided to run for the nomination against MacLeod. He had a very big Chinese community behind him. Again, I went to MacLeod and told her not to worry about the nomination because I was protecting her.

An event on the necessity of literacy was held with the occasion of Frederick Douglass Bicentennial year at the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office

The most dangerous and destructive of all illiteracies is hidden illiteracy.”

— John Stanard

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In honor of the Bicentennial Celebration of the life of Frederick Douglass, the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office hosted a panel of national and local leaders bringing to light the vital importance of literacy in the present day and providing solutions to achieving the goal of a literate nation. Frederick Douglass, a man who changed his nation and became a global icon, was born a slave but broke through the bonds of captivity because he realized that literacy would make him unfit to be a slave. This datum and the further pursuit of literacy led him to become one of the most well known American abolitionists, respected statesman, and renowned writer and orator.

Keynote speaker, Mr. Ken Morris, Jr., great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass and Chairman of the Congressional Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission, shared stories from Douglass’ autobiography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave written in 1845. Douglass’ master Mr. Aud, upon learning that Mrs. Aud was teaching the young Douglass to spell, said, “Now, if you teach him how to read, there would be no keeping him. It would forever unfit him to be a slave. He would at once become unmanageable, and of no value to his master.” These words sank deep into Douglass and laid the pathway to his freedom. This same idea has been found to be just as relevant today in preventing children and adults from falling prey to the modern slave trade. It has been found that educated individuals are far less likely to be trafficked. Mr. Morris founded the Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives, inspired by his progenitor, to continue the abolitionist legacy of his family and educate youth throughout the country to proof them against modern day slavery.

A study conducted by the Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy found that, as of 2013, 32 million Americans cannot read. Millions more are considered functionally illiterate. In the 2015 to 2016 school year 6.7 million students received special education services due to having been labeled with learning disabilities and many of them have been prescribed dangerous psychotropic medications as a solution.

The second panelist, Dr. Frank Smith, Founder and Director of the African American Civil War Memorial and Museum spoke about the role and importance of museums in education today. Access to museums has been found to correlate with increased academic achievement. Noticing that access was not uniform and many children never had the opportunity, Dr. Smith has been striving to bring this access to all sectors of Washington, DC.

Panelist Ms. Barbie Rivera, educator and advocate and Founder and Director of the H.E.L.P. Miami school and tutoring center addressed illiteracy directly sharing the highly effective study methodology developed by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard and her successes in its implementation with her students and their parents. She detailed how, with this study methodology, she has been able to take the students who come to her because they have been turned away by other schools, labeled as failures and told they were unable to learn and help them thrive, regain confidence in their abilities and graduate them into successful men and women who can make full contributions to society.

The event moderator, John Stanard, National Director of Social Betterment Programs and Policy for the Church of Scientology’s National Affairs Office, shared that "The most dangerous and destructive of all illiteracies is hidden illiteracy. This hidden illiteracy shows up in many ways in society as ‘low production’ or ‘inadequate quality of work’ or even ‘discipline of children in schools’. These symptoms may in fact be based in simple illiteracy problems which are easily addressed. With more than one billion of the world's population functionally illiterate, an effective educational methodology is not a choice, it is an obligation.”

At the end of the evening Mr. Morris signed copies of his great-great-great grandfather’s book, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave for attendees. The donations will go towards placing copies of the book in schools to continue to uplift and inspire today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders.

The Church of Scientology National Affairs Office was established to address and promote collaboration on solutions and forward public policy that benefits social issues through Church-supported secular humanitarian and social betterment programs that address literacy, drug education and rehabilitation, criminal rehabilitation, human rights education and morality.

The Baby-Scan app enables you to save and share ultrasound imagery. You decide for yourself what you are going to do with those beautiful images and who are allowed to get a glimpse. All data is securely stored in the Baby-Cloud, so you do not have to worry about the security of your images. In your Baby-Scan account you can indicate with whom you want to share the echoes. So you can comfortably surprise family and friends with an update on the growth and development of your little one.

Carefree and safe

The scanner uses ultrasound, a technique that uses sound waves. These ultrasound waves are sent into the body from the Baby-Scanner. Once through the skin, the sound emitted by the unborn fetus is reflected back to the scanner (hence the name: echo). This ultrasound is captured and converted into an image on the mobile device. These actions are completely painless and harmless. Because humans do not have ultrasound sensors, you won’t notice a thing of these sound waves. Scientific research has clinically proven that the use of the Baby-Scanner is not harmful to the development of your unborn child. The EEA and FCC have tested and approved the Baby-Scan for quality and safety and has acquired the CE and FCC certification.

The account

Each Baby-Scan unit has a unique identifying device code that enables the service department to manage and control the whole from the Baby-Cloud. Here the registration of the user's data takes place, the used number of photos, videos and the birth date of the child is recorded.

A Baby-Scan account is valid for 10 months from the moment the account is activated. With an account you can infinitely watch your little one with the possibility to save photos or videos on your timeline.

Turning an idea into a product

Enthusiastic entrepreneur Hans Mekking who stood at the cradle of Baby-Scan, earned his stripes with several successful business ventures in the Netherlands.

“Entering the consumer electronics market with an innovative product such as Baby-Scan has been a long and very interesting road from idea to final product. Most important it proves that if you have a good story combined with a group of highly skilled professionals all your inspiration will lead to designs full of innovative ideas. Baby-Scan offers expecting parents a buzz of anticipation…Happiness as a Business Model”.
