San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 6, 2006
Even when it has a positive outcome, cancer disrupts lives. Its treatments are famous for their expense and adverse side effects, and a sense of crisis accompanies the diagnosis, with bewildered patients and family making immediate decisions about surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Remission is often temporary, for cancer is famous for spreading throughout the body. No wonder the words “you have cancer” are the most feared in American medicine.
But an estimated 9 million Americans are cancer survivors, and for them cancer is more than a statistic. It’s a personal experience that shapes behavior, motivating many to stop smoking, lose weight, get more exercise, or improve their diets. Now cancer patients in all stages of treatment are using a simple do-it-yourself acupressure tapping technique called EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) to help alleviate pain and other side effects and to reduce or eliminate fear and anxiety. EFT is fully described in a free manual that can be downloaded from
EFT’s positive effects on cancer patients are well documented by practitioners around the world, who report that its combination of gentle fingertip tapping and focused thought help eliminate nausea and other chemotherapy side effects, reduce or eliminate pain, and greatly improve the patient’s state of mind by reducing fear, anxiety, and confusion.
“It’s no exaggeration,” says Belgian physician Tania De Winne, “to say that EFT can make painkillers and muscle relaxants obsolete, and that it is more effective than anti-anxiety medications, without any of their side effects or expense.”
In addition, says Dr. De Winne, EFT strengthens the entire immune system. “While I have no proof that EFT prevents cancer,” she says, “I’m convinced that it does just that. Negative thoughts are a major cause of not just cancer but all illnesses, and since EFT quickly eliminates the energy blocks that contribute to negative thoughts and emotions, I believe cancer and most other diseases can be prevented by using EFT on a daily basis. “
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. EFT practitioners around the world, especially in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan, and Australia, teach EFT classes and work with clients.
