From a seizure to migraines - EFT relief

Hi Everyone,

Rev. Dinah Jackson had a seizure during childbirth that resulted in severe migraine headaches. These persisted for many years until she obtained relief through EFT.

Please note that she only applied EFT directly to the physical pain and did NOT address any underlying emotional causes. While we have many examples of success with this direct-to-the-pain application, it is important to recognize that when EFT doesn't produce results with this approach, it is best to aim at the possible emotional causes of the headaches.

Also, when using the "emotional approach", the most efficient avenue often involves breaking down the issues down into the SPECIFIC EVENTS that underlie them. In my experience, this increases your odds of success.

Hugs, Gary

First some background: I had been suffering from migraine headaches since the birth of my son. Only periodically though. However when I gave birth to my next and last child I had a seizure while I was in labor. The MRI they took of my head after her birth showed the back half of my cerebellum on both sides was completely white.

Interpreted as dead tissue, or blood leakage. The radiologist thought the pictures he was looking at were those of a cadaver.

They were never able to determine if I had a stroke (clogged artery) or an aneurysm (burst vessel) so they didn't want to give me blood thinners for a stroke or coagulants for an aneurysm, so they just stared at me for 2 weeks and monitored the swelling of my brain.

They didn't have a good prognosis, because they didn't know what was going on, The Dr's told my husband it was amazing I was alive at all, They braced him for me to come out of it blind, deaf or both, some memory loss and retardation.

As time went on and I continued to improve (to the immense bafflement of the medical community) but I began to have the most searing migraines everyday for months. My neurologist thought it might be because of the dissolution of whatever was in my brain that turned it white. Fortunately the time between migraines lengthened, but the severity did not lessen. I was having to go to the emergency room for shots of demoral to recover.

Then I used EFT: With this history, learning about EFT was a Divine gift. I tried EFT on my periodic regular headaches and it worked the first round!

I was like, "Whoa!"

After 6 months, I would occasionally feel a headache starting but I could always "tap it down" with EFT in short order.

Then 3 months ago I woke up with a blinding headache. As I sat up it intensified. I became nauseous, dizzy and broke out in sweats and started shaking. I wanted to break my skull open it hurt so bad. I tried lying down... it got worse. I thought in a moment of panic only meds would help, but I couldn't keep them down and every session in front of the commode made it hurt even more.

Then a light came on in my thoughts, "DUH!!!! TAP on it Dummy!", so I did.

It took me awhile, shaking and trying to concentrate, but about midway through the second round, it began to stop throbbing. By the end it only felt like a concrete block on my head.

With one more round, I could actually feel as if the pain were a cast, to crack and melt and slide slowly down off my head. I took a deep breath, washed my face, and it was GONE! I felt FINE!

The entire incident ... from the first tap until it was gone ... was 5 minutes. I don't ever use headache medicine now, whereas I had been using 600 to 3,000 mg of ibuprofen or a demoral shot before a headache would crack. And that took an hour or longer.

I am no longer afraid to leave the house without a bottle of pills in my purse.
