Hi Everyone,

Aparna Natarajan had major pain after some dental work and, shortly after using EFT, it disappeared. She says, "So, as I was changing the diaper, I tapped (short-cut round) on the panic attack and fear of infection. I must have done two rounds, and then decided to put my baby to bed. My husband came upstairs with a bottle of Advil and said, "Take this for the pain." I said, "What pain?" And then I realized that my tooth pain was gone. It never came back."

Hugs, Gary

I recently started dabbling in EFT and then was so impressed with the early results, that I am hoping to delve completely into it and become an EFT therapist. This is one of my first experiences with EFT on myself.

I had to get two crowns on my left and right lower bicuspids. I decided to get both teeth drilled on the same day. As soon as I was numbed, my heart began racing and I felt my blood pressure rising uncontrollably. I wanted to ask the dentist to stop, but I could make no movements and definitely couldn't talk. At that time, the easiest thing to do was Reiki (I have a 2nd degree in Reiki). So, I placed my hands on my chest and later went to sleep.

GC COMMENT: It is also possible to do "mental EFT" to calm down. This is often effective and well worth the effort.

When I returned home, both my teeth hurt a lot and I tried to ignore it as part of a natural course of healing. But the pain did not go even after seven days. It was intermittent but fairly distracting. I decided that this would be a good time to use EFT (and I was really new at it). I went upstairs to change my baby's diaper, while still complaining to my husband about the pain. I remembered the reason for my sudden panic attack at the dentist was a memory of a really painful post root canal infection the previous year. My face was swollen for days and I even had to rush to emergency during the episode.

So, as I was changing the diaper, I tapped (short-cut round) on the panic attack and fear of infection. I must have done two rounds, and then decided to put my baby to bed. My husband came upstairs with a bottle of Advil and said, "Take this for the pain." I said, "What pain?" And then I realized that my tooth pain was gone. It never came back.

Notes: I only did two rounds of tapping and I did not tap for the pain directly. I tapped for the panic attack at the dentist and the memory of the previous infection. I think EFT would have been effective even if I had directly tapped for the pain. But, I do really think that being specific on the memory helped the pain to subside very quickly.

Lots of gratitude to Gary Craig and the whole EFT community.

Aparna
