Hi Everyone,

Larry Gilbert contacted me recently and I asked him how he was doing with EFT. He reports the following.

Cheers, Gary

I'm doing exceptionally well with the traditional basic recipe. Your posts on the Ultimate Therapist are stimulating and I'm just beginning my intuiting.

I posted you sometime ago about using EFT to treat the violence at US Post offices. Your comment was to assign an official tapper at each entrance. Note from GC: This suggestion was meant humorously. I am pursuing it never the less! They were not over enthusiastic so I did a stop smoking demonstration with employees and the HR officer was ASTOUNDED as well as the 2 volunteer employees!!!!!!!! They are currently seeking additional funding for expanded uses.

I'm 2 for 2 on OCD hairpulling and 6 for 6 on phobias. I still use NLP to clean up the session and future pace it.

My most bizarre experience was a stop smoking that actually increased his SUDS for craving with each procedure! I've e-mailed Stephanie Rothman for her comments. Note from GC: Sounds like reversal was present (hence the tapping had no effect) and thus the focus on cigarettes simply served to enhance the craving.
