Increased Danger of Using Pain Medications Enhances Demand for New Drug-Free Pain Treatment

Share Article

As pain medication becomes more dangerous, people in chronic pain are using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to gain relief. EFT is a do-it-yourself acupressure technique that targets the roots of pain; it does not mask pain. More than a decade of EFT case studies indicate that chronic pain is a result of unresolved emotional issues and/or a chronically blocked energy meridian system (Chi or Qi). Clear the issues and the blocks and you clear the pain without drugs.

Pain medication was never intended to cure pain -- merely mask the pain symptoms. By conventional definition, pain is a physical signal that something is wrong in the body. According to EFT theory, pain is a signal that there is a block in the body’s energy meridian system (Chi or Qi), or that there are unresolved emotional issues. When emotional pain is addressed, the energy meridian system balances, no longer stimulating in a physical pain response.

EFT often works when nothing else does because it does not mask pain; it eliminates the body’s pain response to emotional trauma and energy blocks. It involves fingertip tapping on select acupressure points while focusing on the pain in question. EFT claims an 80% success rate in calming chronic pain.

EFT even reduces or eliminates pain associated with serious diseases like cancer and arthritis. Gary Craig, the Stanford-trained engineer who developed EFT, explains, “The medical profession tends to look at pain as though it has mechanical or chemical causes. By contrast, we frequently find that it also has very important emotional causes and once those causes are collapsed with EFT, the pain subsides.”

Pharmaceutical companies earn billions of dollars by providing chronic pain sufferers with medications designed to inhibit their pain. The drugs were developed to have fewer side effects than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like Aspirin or ibuprofen which could cause gastric bleeding or ulcers.

Before Vioxx, the popular arthritis pain medication, was taken off the market due to increased incidence of heart attacks, strokes and death, Merck earned nearly $2.4 billion. In 2003, Pfizer earned $2.29 billion in sales of Celebrex, Vioxx’s competitor. According to Canada's Adverse Drug Reaction database, Celebrex showed 456 adverse drug reactions, including 30 deaths up until April, 2004.

EFT has no known side effects.

“Every time news reports that a drug has been taken off the market, or has serious side effects, activity on the EFT website increases as people search for healthy alternatives,” says Craig. “People freely download the EFT Manual and immediately start using this simple procedure to manage, even eliminate their pain. The letters and testimonials illustrate the profound impact that EFT is having on people all over the world.”

Dr. Joseph Mercola, sponsor of the world’s most visited natural health website (, uses EFT in his medical practice. Dr. Mercola explains, “I can recall using EFT with a new patient with rheumatoid arthritis who had been taking 60 mg of prednisone for her severe joint pain. She described the pain in her feet as if someone had stuck a butcher knife in them. The absolutely amazing outcome was that after a few minutes of tapping her pain had completely disappeared. It is still hard to believe how effective EFT is for this problem.”

Over 330,000 have downloaded Craig’s free training manual and another 10,000 download it each month. The official EFT Manual has been translated by volunteer practitioners into nine languages.
