Using EFT for heart palpitations

This personal experience by Steve Daugherty is yet another addition to the long list of persuasive evidence that EFT's energetic/emotional approach to physical problems is, indeed, effective. In this case it is astonishing because there is, to my knowledge, no medical explanation for it.


Hi Gary,

I am a burgeoning Life Coach, and I was introduced to EFT by a friend about six months ago. I have had amazing results using EFT, and I would like to share one of my experiences in case it benefits others.

I began to develop heart palpitations when I was in my early twenties. For someone who has never experienced them, it feels like your heart skips a beat - and it can get bad enough that you feel light headed, or dizzy. I had all kinds of tests run on my heart throughout the years, and the doctors said that I have harmless PVCs - Premature Ventricular Contractions. To explain it simply, one part of my heart was getting triggered by an electrical impulse to pump just before it was actually supposed to. The doctors said that there was nothing I can do about it except to avoid caffeine, certain types of medicines, and stress. They may be harmless, but they sure do leave you feeling bad, and sometimes downright scared.

Well, when I first learned EFT, I proved to myself that it worked by relieving back pain, knee pain, chronic stomach pain (my 14 year old son suffered for years with IBS - it's gone now thanks to EFT), fear, stress, anxiety, and all sorts of emotional issues. But for some reason, it never dawned on me to use EFT for my heart palpitations. I got very excited when I realized that it should work since EFT is based on working with electrical impulses or energy meridians, and so is the heart!

A couple months ago, in the middle of the night, my heart palpitations started acting up severely. I raised up in my bed, and I noticed how bad they were. My heart was skipping a beat every third beat! This was bad. Usually, it skips a beat every 6th or 8th beat. The skipped beats continued for several minutes with no let up.

So, I immediately started in with the tapping - I said, "Even though I have these heart palpitations, I deeply and completely accept myself". I did the entire basic EFT, including the gamut phase (which I usually don't have to use anymore after watching the advanced tapes). After I was done, I couldn't believe it! The heart palpitations stopped - my heart was beating perfectly normally. I was amazed, and so relieved. To finally have something that would control and stop the heart palpitations was just miraculous to me. I started counting my healthy beats - I got up to 183 perfect beats before I was convinced and so I stopped waiting for a skipped beat.

The heart palpitations didn't come back until I was under a lot of stress a couple weeks later. So, I just tapped on them again, and poof! They were gone. Now, I use my palpitations to monitor my stress levels - if I start to get them, I notice or think about what is stressing me out, and I tap on that, and then I tap on my palpitations if they are still going. It seems to be a great system for self monitoring. But I think that I will try to get to the original emotional issue that brought on the palpitations and see if I can get rid of them permanently.

Namaste,

Steve Daugherty
