San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2006
Twenty years ago, type 2 or adult-onset diabetes was unheard of in children. Today, type 2 diabetes has become a childhood epidemic. One out of every three children born since 2000 are expected to develop the disease, and the number of newly diagnosed 10- to 14-year-olds has doubled in the last four years.
There are many risk factors for type 2 diabetes, including family history, obesity, a high-carbohydrate diet, and lack of exercise. Diabetes contributes to so many other illnesses that experts are warning that today’s children may be the first generation in American history to die before their parents. Prevention is the key, but for many kids, losing weight, exercising more, and avoiding sugary foods is all but impossible. EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), a do-it-yourself acupressure technique, can help children avoid diabetes. The technique is described in a free manual that can be downloaded from
“The way EFT works,” says Los Angeles physician Eric Robins, MD, “is that it releases energy disruptions that contribute to disease and that interfere with the development of healthy habits. Gentle fingertip tapping on key acupressure points combined with focused thought boosts immunity, keeps the body’s systems in balance, and helps people feel motivated to eat right, lose weight, maintain a normal weight, and get more exercise.”
In many cases, EFT has significantly lowered elevated blood sugar levels of patients with diabetes in just a few minutes. In addition, EFT has become a popular weight loss tool because it can eliminate cravings in less than a minute, and it addresses underlying causes of cravings, overeating, and wrong food choices.
“These benefits make EFT a perfect tool for those who already have diabetes or who are at risk,” says Dr. Robins.
EFT is a new procedure, but already more than 300,000 – including thousands of health care practitioners – have downloaded its free manual from http://www.emofree.com/downloadeftmanual.asp?ref=prwchildhooddiabetescj
and an additional 10,000 download it every month. The manual is available in nine languages, and EFT practitioners around the world teach EFT classes and work with clients.
