When EFT gives only temporary results

This article is a letter written by me (Gary) to Dr. Joseph Mercola as a thank you for his very helpful health oriented newsletter. It also illustrates a very useful feature of EFT ... namely ... that when EFT provides only temporary results we should consider that a clue that we are causing the problem by eating, drinking, wearing, smelling or otherwise coming in contact with something that is toxic to us. This can be very helpful in maintaining our health.

Dear Dr. Mercola,

3 or 4 years ago I began having to urinate too often, including getting up 5 or 6 times at night. Gradually it got worse until it reached a peak a few months ago where I was urinating 2 or 3 times an hour all day long. Sometimes after going to bed I would have to get up and urinate 10 or 12 times in the first two hours. Then, in addition, I would still get up another 5 or 6 times during the night.

Along the way I had my prostate checked manually...TWICE. No problem could be found. I took a blood test and my PSA was 0.69 which, I understand, is excellent. Ultra sound was done regarding my prostate, kidney and bladder. No problem was found. Nonetheless, I still had to urinate frequently. There wasn't much there when I had to go but, nonetheless, mother nature was being quite insistent.

I noticed, however, that the problem went away when I left home to go on a trip. Within 24 to 48 hours of walking out my front door, my system returned to normal. When I returned, the problem came back within 24 to 48 hours. Sooooo, what was happening at home to cause this?

I did elimination diets and could find no discernible cause from what I was eating. I spent more time outdoors to see if a change from non-house air was doing it. No difference. Besides, it wasn't likely to be something in my home's air because I moved 2 years ago and had the same problem in the previous house.

Sometimes the problem would subside for awhile and them come roaring back. Accordingly, I was convinced that I was somehow causing it. I did EFT on it, of course, and would get temporary relief. However, the fact that the EFT relief was only temporary was a big clue that I was doing something on an ongoing basis to cause this problem. But what was it?

Then 2 or 3 months ago I read an article on the web site regarding Teflon. It said that cooking things in Teflon over high heat was likely to cause toxicity. Although I never used high heat (nothing above medium heat), I recalled that 3 or 4 years ago (about the time all this started) my mother gave me a Teflon frying pan...which I began using regularly.

So, I stopped using the Teflon frying pan and BINGO!, 24 to 48 hours later the problem vanished and has never returned. It now made sense. When I left home for a trip, I was away from the Teflon frying pan. When I came back, I started using the Teflon frying pan again.

Sometimes we cause illnesses and are completely oblivious to what we are doing. I may have never figured it out had you not put the Teflon caution on your web site.

Both my bladder and I send you our thanks.
