San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2006
Medical experts agree that no one knows what causes rheumatoid arthritis, other autoimmune disorders, or chronic pain. They say there is no known cure or way to prevent Parkinson’s disease, ulcerative colitis, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis, or dozens of other illnesses. Modern medicine doesn’t attempt to cure these conditions. Instead, it manages them for as long as possible with symptom-suppressing procedures and drugs.
But a growing number of physicians, medical experts, and health care practitioners believe they know how these illnesses begin and progress. It’s not all in your head, they say -- but it is in the muscles and organs that store past traumas. Releasing stored traumas releases the illness’s underlying cause and helps the body heal from the inside out. The method they use is EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), a do-it-yourself acupressure technique described in a free manual from http://www.emofree.com/downloadeftmanual.asp?ref=prw-diseasecj
Los Angeles physician Eric Robins, MD, explains, “Stress and negative emotions are often stored in the body’s smooth muscles, which function automatically, without our conscious control. Stress stored in smooth muscles of blood vessels going to the head might produce a migraine headache, while stress stored in smooth muscles of air passages of the lungs can produce asthma, and stress stored in smooth muscles of the digestive tract can produce Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Stored emotions also affect our immune systems.”
Dr. Robins teaches his patients how to tap on key EFT acupressure points while focusing on past traumas or stress, and in most cases, he says, symptoms of chronic diseases improve significantly.
North Carolina radiologist Larry Burk, MD, is another EFT practitioner. “It is instructive to note that many ailments which seem to have an underlying anatomical cause may also have a deeper emotional root,” he says. “There are many scientific studies indicating that a surprising number of people with no symptoms whatsoever have dramatic abnormalities on MRI scans obtained on a volunteer basis for research purposes. Equally puzzling, many patients with severe debilitating pain from conditions such as fibromyalgia have no abnormalities. These findings support the concept that deep emotional issues are at the root of the illness. As soon as you address these emotional issues with EFT, the physical condition improves.”
Gary Craig, the Stanford-trained engineer who developed EFT, has collected thousands of reports documenting its health benefits from practitioners around the world. “We make no specific medical claims for EFT,” he explains, “but we agree with medical experts who say that by relieving past traumas and improving the body’s flow of energy, EFT can help most patients improve their health.”
EFT is a new procedure, but already over 300,000 -- including thousands of health care practitioners -- have downloaded its free manual from
and an additional 10,000 download it every month. The manual is available in nine languages, and EFT practitioners around the world, especially in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan, and Australia, teach EFT classes and work with clients.
