Colleen successfully uses our EFT DVDs as a clue to her allergies

Hi Everyone,

Colleen Flanagan uses information in our DVDs to find core issues behind her allergies. Please note that she uses muscle testing, a technique that requires a lot of practice and training for proficiency. By contrast, I find it easier to ask appropriate questions instead. In the right hands, both methods can work well.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary,

Your Series 2 DVDs (in the EFT Intermediate Library) really opened my eyes to the many energy toxins in our daily lives that cause allergies and substance sensitivities. Admittedly, I felt skeptical about some of the information until I muscle-tested myself and found numerous substances (almost everything) in my home that weakened my body.  I tapped away my sensitivities to everything from laundry detergent to vitamins to plastics like my TV remote control, computer mouse and keyboard-all made of chemicals that weakened my body.  Afterward I felt clear-headed and energized.

The DVD information that substance sensitivities or allergies can be conditioned responses to traumatic events enabled me to identify and release allergies on a deeper level for myself.  A few years ago I'd developed a puzzling new food allergy to celery, a favorite vegetable since childhood.

Using muscle-testing, I traced the allergy back to a disagreement I'd had with a friend while we'd eaten a stir fry dinner with celery in it!  Thanks to EFT, am again eating celery without the allergic skin rash after-effects.

I've applied the DVD information to help many clients release their blocks to healing, too.  Children and pets can become allergic to their food if they're fed in a stressful environment or yelled at while they eat.  The indicators of the allergies or sensitivities may not become noticeable until days, weeks or months later.

A delightful soul I'll call "Sam" phoned me from the UK for help with the core issues behind his allergies.  He said he was almost "afraid to eat" due to sensitivities to most foods, especially dairy products, eggs, tomatoes, rye, corn, wheat and yeast.  His reactions included difficulty breathing, brain fog and a terrible allergic hangover with flu-like conditions the next morning.

Sam, a previously healthy man in his early thirties, had been treated by doctors, allergy specialists and holistic practitioners, but nothing permanently helped.  Desperate to regain his health and quality of life, he contacted me "across the pond" in Phoenix.

After hearing all the methods he'd tried to release the allergies, we first worked on his fears that nothing would help him feel better, using the below Setup Statements on his left sore spot and following up with the 9 Gamut and Reminder Phrase tapping:

Even though I'm afraid I'm neurotic and these allergies are all in my head…

Even though I'm frightened I'll never be healthy enough to live a normal life…

Even though I'm full of doubt and afraid EFT can't help me either…

When he believed there was hope for him to have a normal life and that EFT could help him as it had helped me and my clients, we began the EFT for allergy relief.

Because Sam needed to quickly see results, I used surrogate muscle testing to identify his hidden fear layers that triggered the allergies.  He was surprised to discover that the main core issue involved a woman he'd loved and lost several years ago.  His body was now falsely identifying many of the foods and drinks they'd shared as being harmful substances. Lesser core issues involved other sweethearts, fearful times in his childhood, teen years and adult life in which he did not feel safe and had payoffs for not healing, for example:

Allergies got attention for me as a child

Allergies keep me safely away from the dating and nightclub scene so I couldn't meet a woman and get my heart broken again

Allergies helped me get into healthy lifestyle, and I'm afraid to heal as I may return to a less healthy lifestyle

After we'd cleared every substance, emotion and payoff with full rounds of EFT, I asked him to slowly reintroduce the substances into his body. I cautioned him to not overindulge, but to take one bite or one sip of the offending substance and then notice how he felt. Days later Sam reported that he'd taken a bite of pizza and had no reaction to the wheat, yeast and dairy substances for the first time in years.  Encouraged, we tapped away more emotional layers from various stressful times in his life.  Sam felt overjoyed to eat previously forbidden foods "like a normal person" and join his mates at the pub for pizza and beer.

We had so much fun and success that we continued working together to identify and release his issues about work, abundance and self-confidence to follow his dreams of helping others achieve optimum health.  Sam emailed this personal update over the year-end holidays:

"As well as just keeping in touch I thought I would update you as to how I got on facing all the festive food and booze! It went very well, and what a difference a year has made to my health. I did overindulge in quite a few ways, beer, cakes, bread etc. and although I definitely did feel the after effects of this I was not suffering the real difficulties which I used to. I think I still need to monitor the amount of wheat I eat and dairy products as it does make a difference to my overall energy but otherwise I really feel myself and can socialise normally which has made me feel myself again.

Thanks for all the work we did last year."

Gary, thank you for your DVDs and website articles on this topic.  I'm applying this knowledge to help people and their pets tap into a quality of life and radiant health they thought they'd never have again.
