Pain Management

EFT provides relief for 30 years of pain from a car accident--no more Vicodin

Hi Everyone,

Liz's 30 years of pain was so pervasive that it hurt every time she moved. Her method of relief was Vicodin. It allowed her to get through the day but caused her to sleep as much as 12 hours per day. Then Ava Evans applied EFT for Liz's anger issues with remarkable results. Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

I wanted to share a story with all those who are using EFT.  I am a Certified Hypnotherapist and have been using EFT for a little over two years in my practice.  I have had great successes with EFT, but this one I felt needed to be shared.

I spoke to an older friend of mine, (we will call her Liz; not her real name)  I knew she was having severe pain and lots health problems, Liz is well into her 80’s and she has been suffering with back problems for over 30 years.  Her back problem began when she was in a car accident about 30 years ago.  She was at a red light and a woman slammed into her going over 30 miles an hour.  Liz has severe disc damage and sciatica pain which has gotten progressively worse over the years. She has to walk with a cane and every time she moves it hurts.  The pain medication she had to be on, just to get through the day (Vicodin), made her sleep, sometimes 12 hours a day. 

I began coming to her home doing hypnotherapy just to help her out. When she was in trance her pain improved and she felt better.  I made a tape for her and returned two more times, each time making her a tape she could listen to before bed.  Although she felt more comfortable when she slept and so much more relaxed, she still needed the Vicodin.

The third time I came we spoke about EFT; I explained how it worked and asked if she would be willing to give it a try.  Liz was interested and willing.  I had noticed she had a lot of anger tied up in this situation, but I asked her, “What is the feeling you get when you think about this pain?” She said, “Anger.”  She rated the anger at a level of intensity of more than 10 – on a scale of 0 to 10. 

So we went back to that car accident and tapped on,

Even though I have this intense anger at that idiotic woman who hit me in my car that day

(Her Words): Even though I am so angry at that idiotic woman and all this pain I’ve had from this accident

So we went through that with maybe 3 rounds. The pain came down, to a level of intensity of 3 out of 10. I asked what else is coming up and Liz told me her husband, (who is deceased) and their business manager pushed her to drop the lawsuit and just seek medical damages.

She was really angry with them and resentful about that.  We then tapped on the anger and her being resentful at her husband and their business manager.  (Liz was in a neck brace for 6 months and she has been paying her own medical bills for many years, not to mention the pain and suffering). 

We did two to three rounds of that and she came down to an intensity level of ONE out of 10.  She was shocked, she said, “I think this is the first time in years I felt this much relief.”  We did another round she stayed at a one.

It was getting late and I had to get to the hypnosis.  I gave her some really powerful suggestions she was in trance for about 40 minutes.  I taped it and gave it to her.  She could not thank me enough; she was committed to continue doing the EFT on her own as well.

I called her a week or two later and asked how she was.  She said, “great” and I asked her to tell me about it.  She had only taken one Tylenol that week, no other pain medication, she was thrilled, she had told her doctor about it and he said, “Yeah that makes sense tapping on acupuncture points; that could work.”

I am so happy for her and I felt so good that I could give her such a wonderful gift.  This is just one of so many happy endings using hypnosis and EFT in combination.
