EFT(emotional freedom training)

I just heard of this for the first time tonight in another thread. Has anybody else had any experience with craving controls and other stuff with this "tapping"?

I didn't use it for cravings but I used to use it. It helped with other things. You just really need to stick with it, like everything else.

I believe EFT and Pro EFT could be powerful help for those of us struggling. If anyone needs links or info please message me. I didn't want to clutter the board with a bunch of book links. I'm not selling anything nor will I be. I noticed there's a lot of pay places for this and it was always supposed to be free to learn and get started.

Love EFT. I use it and meditation/yoga to help power through cravings, as well as for other things. It really is kind of a "grounding" force for me.

Like most things, the effect can be very subtle. But as time goes on and you practice more, it becomes obvious that something is working. At least for me.

I love natural remedies instead of popping pills. Its a great stress reliever for me too. Probably in part because you just sit back and relax your mind.

I've been reading a lot about deep breathing recently and believe it is beneficial to my well being also.

Keep us posted on what you think of EFT. It sure can't hurt anything!

I was diagnosed with "anxiety" from some physical symptoms like numbness and tingling. After MRI's and test that proved it wasn't anything like MS or a brain tumor (Praise God!) they decided that's what the problem was. (now that I'm "older") I have never, ever had any health problems. That's why being overweight bothers me so. Anyway, I was put on the usual pills. Within a month I was having such vivid dreams all night that I would wake myself up talking to people! And then I thought about the dreams all day just like I do if I watch a movie or read a book. I just can't get it out of my head for some reason! I decided that I had to stop taking the medicine which really didn't help anyway. I tapered off of it, started the deep breathing using Calm app and others. (hyperventilating was my problem ) I decluttered my house, cleared my calendar and responsibilities that I didn't love, made our bedroom dark and cold, started getting as close to 8 hours of sleep as I can everyday and started walking in the sunshine too and eating low carb again. Anxiety controlled by natural methods is what I am doing. This EFT sounds just like something I'm always looking for. I can't wait to read more!

Wow you have made some wonderful improvements in your life!
Good for you to do what it takes to feel better. EFT will be another element that will help with stress. Watch a video and give it a try!
(I like Cheryl Richardson and Laura Koniver. I think Christiane Northrup also has an EFT video.

I used it three years ago. It was recommended by my psychiatrist to help with the TBI. It did help. I need to startit again too.
