Hi Everyone,

Beatrice Salmon-Hawk's son was having an acute asthma attack when he called for help. His inhaler wasn't working and so Beatrice, from 400 miles away, talked him through EFT over the phone. I think you will appreciate the skill and follow-up displayed in her article.

Hugs, Gary

By Beatrice Salmon-Hawk

One Sunday afternoon, just after lunch, my son, who’s 19 and at a University 400 miles away, calls in a complete state of panic.  He tells me he cannot breathe, he has not slept for 48 hours, just cat-napped ... his cough is dreadful and his chest has seized up, his wheezing is at 10 (on a level of intensity scale of 0 – 10) and his shoulders are in such pain that he cannot relax them.  He is contemplating calling an ambulance and says his asthma inhaler no longer works.

I am 400 miles away.  I know he has always made fun of EFT and yet he says, "Mum, I wish you could just press on my chest and release it.”  That kind of gives me permission.  I ask which position is the least distressing and he says standing up.  So we start with him standing up.

Because he is in such a panic, I choose to treat the anxiety first and ask him to tap on the Karate Chop and say,

Even though this EFT is rubbish and I do not believe in it…

Even though I know it’s not going to work…

Even though I wish it would, and that you could press on my chest and get rid of it…

Then he does a couple of rounds keeping this in mind and I also ask him to tap on the Solar Plexus (the middle of his chest).

He reports feeling more together and we start tackling the anxiety which he rates at 8 out of 10. We tap on his fears and anxiety and the level of intensity goes up to 10 out of 10 rapidly.  We continue tapping on,

Even though I really am anxious, and I really need this anxiety, it’s helping me, it believes its helping me breathe better, it’s terrified I am going to stop breathing, I am also terrified because it's the first time I am sick and away from home, I feel lonely, and frightened…

A couple of rounds and the anxiety is down to 0 out of 10.

Now my son announces that his shoulders have relaxed and he is feeling better but still wheezes and anyway he wants to do it lying down.  So we arrange this, and I get him to tell me the level of intensity of the wheezing and it's at 10 out of 10.  Two rounds of EFT on this wheezing and encouragements for him to visualise it and see it shrink and it is gone … completely gone.  He says he wants to go to sleep now and puts the phone down.

I call him early that evening, he has slept all afternoon, and the asthma attack has completely disappeared.  The next morning I check in and he has slept all night and still no asthma, he has not used the inhaler, has not needed to, and he is on his way to his morning lecture.

It was such a relief to be able to help him when I was at such a distance.  I am a seasoned (4 years) practitioner and trainer of EFT but I have never seen such a rapid resolution of a problem.  I could have felt powerless as a mother but instead was able to help my son get over an acute anxiety and asthma attack!  Marvelous!



Further to the above article about my son's recovery from an asthma attack, just a post-script to say that he called last night (1.5 days later) to say he had been to the doctor to be sure all was well and she said that his chest was completely clear and there was no need for medication.
