Think about allergies when doing EFT

Hi Everyone,

As allergy expert Sandi Radomski says in her article, "We are currently experiencing an exponential increase in allergies and sensitivities.  A primary reason for this increase is that our foods and our environment are filled with many new and toxic chemicals.  Since 1945, more than 100,000 new chemicals have been introduced into our lives." Thus it is important to weigh this growing cause for our various ailments and use EFT appropriately for them.

Hugs, Gary

Those of us who use EFT know how miraculous it is for eliminating both emotional and physical problems.  I wish to take this opportunity to suggest that it may be beneficial to include allergies and sensitivities when working with your clients.  Substances can be seen as another aspect of a problem, since the substance may actually be the cause of the presenting complaint.

We are currently experiencing an exponential increase in allergies and sensitivities.  A primary reason for this increase is that our foods and our environment are filled with many new and toxic chemicals.  Since 1945, more than 100,000 new chemicals have been introduced into our lives. Some of these chemicals are clearly toxic to our system such as Teflon and pesticides.  Often substances are not essentially dangerous but our bodies are no longer able to identify what is good for us and what is bad for us.

Therefore, our bodies begin to create an immune system reaction in order to protect us.  Our bodies can handle a certain amount of these questionable substances, but often the body system becomes overloaded and a person begins to experience negative symptoms.  These symptoms can be both emotional and/or physical.

Allergies and sensitivities also arise out of a conditional response.  We become reactive to those substances that are associated with traumas that we have experienced.  The sights, sounds, tastes, smells, or texture present in one’s brain during a trauma or upset became part of the memory.  Later, exposure to those same or similar sights, sounds, tastes, smells or textures can trigger a sensitive reaction.

Our bodies are always trying to protect us.  However, sometimes its efforts are counter-productive to our health.  Rebecca Marina, in her DVD “The Power of Emotions in our Blood,” shows us the dramatic effect of emotion on our cells.  Of all the emotions tested, fear makes the blood cells move most quickly, frantically searching for the source of the danger.  

Unfortunately, the blood cells often find vitamin C, B vitamins, calcium and other molecules that are good for the body and attack them as though they were the culprits.  The immune system is trying to keep out foreign invaders, but it is working on faulty information.

The following is an email recounting one person’s benefit of working with the specific substance causing a problem.  After months of her using EFT for her eye discomfort following cataract surgery, Marilyn found relief after working on the implanted lens directly.  It gave her needed comfort and a sense of control.  She wrote:

From: Marilyn Deak, PHD. “An ‘Allergy Antidotes’ Frame of Mind”

Two-and-a-half months after cataract surgery, I was still struggling with extremely irritated eyelids, and some swelling in the lid of the eye with the new lens.  I was seeing the ophthalmologist every few weeks, and he had no suggestions for ways to help.  No lubricating eye drops had helped, and I was told that the implant looked great.

During this same period, I had a flare up of fibromyalgia, and was experiencing unusual sensitivities to a variety of nutrients.  I had also become more forgetful and had the feeling that thoughts were literally falling out of my head.

Lying in bed one morning, worried and frustrated by my eye discomfort, I had one of those ‘aha’ moments … maybe I was allergic to the new lens.  I remembered Sandi Radomski talking about a patient who was allergic to a titanium implant.  Self muscle testing suggested this was the case.

During the 2½ months since surgery, I had tried EFT for variants of: ‘these dry, grainy eyes’, with little or no relief.  With the awareness of a probable allergic reaction, I started EFT tapping for:

Even though I’m having an allergic reaction to this Crystalens implant…

Even though every cell of my body feels under attack by this implant…

Even though my immune system is hyper-alert because of this implant, I choose to have all of my cells calm and at peace…

Now at the end of the day, my eyes continue to be more comfortable than they had been, and I have more energy.  The treatment does not feel complete yet, and I will continue to treat the eye area for the allergic reaction.

I am so thankful to the information I’ve received over the years, about allergies and Energetic treatments for allergies.  Within the past week, I have been seen by four medical doctors, and none of them suggested the possibility that the problems I presented could relate to allergies.

Many thanks to Sandi, and to all of our wonderful Energy Psychology gurus.

My responsive suggestion is for you to think about allergies when doing EFT.  The concept that a substance may be triggering a person’s symptoms is another tool for your tool chest to be used when needed.  Besides muscle testing, you might ask people specifically about any changes in food, detergent, supplements, medications, infections, home or office location, home improvements etc. that happened at the onset of their symptoms.

Often, working with the specific substance brings out information that would otherwise stay hidden.  For example, I recently worked with someone for weight loss.  She tested very weak for oatmeal.  She was upset because she felt addicted to her oatmeal.  In the middle of the tapping sequence she “remembered” that she mainly ate oatmeal while she was taking care of her dying mother.  Therefore, working directly with the oatmeal opened the door to the emotions that needed to be resolved.

With love and gratitude
