Is Hypnosis the Solution to Help You Solve Problems of Daily Life?

For Immediate Release

Is Hypnosis the Solution to Help You Solve Problems of Daily Life?

NAPERVILLE, ILLINOIS, NOVEMBER 6th, 2015 — Professional Hypnotherapist, Z. Faith Darby, C.Ht., is taking part in a global education campaign to share the message that hypnosis is a simple, safe and highly effective way for people to address the problems of daily life. Routinely used in the health care industry as a valued tool, by athletes to improve focus and performance and by successful business professionals, celebrities and other high-profile individuals for relaxation and stress management, hypnosis also offers efficient applications for solving the types of problems people struggle with daily.

Presented by the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH) (www.ngh.net), the nation’s oldest, largest and leading organization for professional consulting hypnotists, the campaign is sharing in-depth information about the role of hypnotists in helping people of all ages and with a range of problems. Naperville, Illinois resident Z. Faith Darby, C.Ht., a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, is recognized for her services that help people break bad habits, establish healthy new routines and enhance their daily lives.

Among the many types of challenges that can be resolved or improved through hypnosis are: smoking cessation, overeating, emotional eating, cravings, exercise and activity levels, sports performance, stress reduction, sleep disorders, fear of speaking in public, test taking anxiety, increasing self-esteem, procrastination and other issues that hold people back from living their best life.

Dr. Dwight Damon, President of the National Guild of Hypnotists and one of the organization’s founders, explained, “The role of the consulting professional hypnotist may seem like a new profession in the minds of many consumers. In fact, the effective use of hypnosis is thousands of years old and is today accepted and proven throughout the medical community.” Dr. Damon is widely recognized as, “The Father of Consulting Hypnotism as a Separate and Distinct Profession.”

Z. Faith Darby, C.Ht., has been a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists since November, 2010. She is the owner of the Hands-of-Faith Holistic Healing Centers an Alternative Health & Wellness Center offering a variety of Lifestyle Modification programs including: smoking cessation, overeating, emotional eating, cravings, exercise and activity levels, stress reduction, fear of speaking in public, test taking anxiety, increasing self-esteem, procrastination and other issues that hold people back from living their best life. The Hands of Faith Holistic Healing Centers also offers Therapeutic Massage/Bodywork, Reiki, EFT, Health & Wellness Coaching, Naturopathic wellness or a combination of therapies.

Established in 1950, in Boston, Massachusetts, the National Guild of Hypnotists is the preeminent professional organization for consulting hypnotists. Over the years, the NGH has led the profession, receiving recognition in the United States Congressional Record for its accomplishments.

The organization has established a strict universal code of ethics for the profession and has developed and maintains a rigorous certification program based on a standardized curriculum. Extensive and ongoing training is required of National Guild of Hypnotists members receiving NGH certification.

Regularly, the NGH conducts educational seminars for its members and annually hosts an international convention and educational conference that includes a three-day intensive session with an additional two-week program of study also available. Each year, more than a thousand professional consulting hypnotists attend the NGH Convention.

In 1994, the National Guild of Hypnotists chartered the rapidly growing National Federation of Hypnotists, Local 104, a Union affiliated with the OPEIU, AFL-CIO, CLC. Currently the organization’s membership includes some 17,500 consulting hypnotists, located throughout 81 countries worldwide.

Why we need enzyme nutrition https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E21anaImSTc

Enzyme nutrition is the art and science of using nutrition to maintain homeostasis and health in the body. It works with the body’s innate intelligence to bring the body to optimal health using whole foods that contain protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, rather than trying to manipulate it by using chemical compounds that produce side effects.

Food enzymes are a natural and important component in our food supply, yet they are systematically removed to extend shelf-life. While shelf-life is necessary in our modern society, enzymes must be replaced, just as vitamins and minerals are. For example, when milk is pasteurized it depletes the vitamin A and D content as well as enzymes. The vitamins are added back in, but the enzymes are not. Enzymes are the construction workers of the body. Protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals are simply the building materials.

Every body is biochemically unique. Optimal health can only be attained when each person is viewed that way. Individuals cannot and should not be categorized or labeled to fit into a particular pharmaceutical paradigm. What is good for the general public is not necessarily good for the individual. Before recommendations are made for an individual, specific biochemical and mechanical needs must be objectively ascertained and not subjectively surmised.

We use proven and time-honored standards to nutritionally support the body. We recognize that the best sources of nutrients are not concentrated chemical compounds but whole foods with contents that act synergistically when properly digested and assimilated.

Please feel free to contact us at (630) 416-9632 or email us at faith@hands-of-faith.com for more information, when you are ready to take control of your health and related issues.

Daily Reminder!

10 Natural Ways to Relax and Rejuvenate – Easy Ways to Manage Stress and Build ImmunityNo Stress image

Protecting the immune system and managing stress are vital aspects of living longer, feeling younger, and being healthy. Here are 10 ways to reduce stress, boost your immune system, and slow down the hands of time.

Physical activity. Regular exercise — whether it’s walking or dancing — strengthens your cardiovascular system, heart, muscles, and bones. It also stimulates the release of endorphins; improves mental functioning, concentration/attention, and cognitive performance; and lowers cholesterol, blood pressure, cortisol, and other stress hormones.

Yoga and stretching. The slow movements and controlled postures of yoga improve muscle strength, flexibility, balance, circulation, mental focus, and calmness.

Hand hygiene. The most effective measure in preventing the spread of germs is good hand hygiene. Washing your hands as soon as you come home, and always before you eat, greatly reduces your exposure to bacterial and viral infections. Carry alcohol-based hand wipes to control exposures away from home.

Laughter and humor. There is truth to the saying that laughter is the best medicine. Laughing reduces stress hormones like adrenaline (epinephrine) and cortisol and benefits the immune system.

High nutrient diet. Eat foods rich in antioxidants (strawberries, oranges, tomatoes), omega-3 fatty acids (walnuts, salmon, soybeans), and folate (dark green, leafy vegetables). Antioxidants neutralize molecules that can cause heart disease, cancer, and premature aging. Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular-enhancing, and immune-regulating properties. Folate prevents age-related cognitive decline, ensures DNA integrity (important during
pregnancy), and promotes healthy red blood cells.

Music. Listening to your favorite music is a great method of reducing stress and relieving anxiety.

Sleep. Sound sleep has a profound impact on stress
levels, immune function, and disease resistance. Your body and immune system do most of their repairs during sleep, so strive to get in seven to eight hours each night.

Positive thinking. Optimism can counteract the negative impact stress, tension, and anxiety have on your immune system and well-being. Often it is how you perceive things that determine if you get overwhelmed, both mentally and physically.

Tea. Regularly drinking green and black teas throughout the day can help strengthen your immune system and your body’s ability to fight off germs and infections.

Hydrotherapy. Relaxing in a hot bath relieves sormuscles and joints, reduces stress and tension, and promotes sleep. Add music, soft lighting, and scented oils to create a spa experience in the privacy of your own home.
