San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2006
Osteoporosis threatens the health of 10 million Americans who already have the disease and another 34 million with low bone mass. Both men and women are at risk, and osteoporosis is the leading cause of incapacitating hip fractures. Prescription drugs that treat osteoporosis can have severe side effects, such as the destruction of bone in the jaw caused by Fosamax.
Health experts agree that osteoporosis is easier to prevent than to treat. Risk factors include smoking, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, type 2 diabetes, eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia, the use of prescription anti-depressants, and nutritional deficiencies such as insufficient vitamin D, calcium, and other minerals. All of these lifestyle risk factors can be reduced or eliminated with the help of a simple do-it-yourself acupressure tapping procedure called EFT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques, which is explained in a free manual that can be downloaded from
“Almost every illness or unhealthy habit has its root in the body’s energy system,” says Los Angeles physician Eric Robins, MD. “Unhappy memories or past traumas remain stored in the body, where they disrupt the normal flow of healthy energy. This energy disruption is the underlying cause of most illnesses, and I’m convinced it contributes to osteoporosis. But EFT is a fast, easy way to correct energy imbalances. It literally helps the body heal from the inside out.
“If more people used EFT,” he says, “there would be a lot less osteoporosis as well as a lot less heart disease, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, and other chronic health problems. EFT helps prevent osteoporosis by encouraging healthy lifestyle changes such as saying no to cigarettes, losing weight, engaging in active, weight-bearing exercise, and paying attention to diet and supplements.”
EFT can even speed the healing of broken bones, as documented by reports from practitioners, including physicians and health care practitioners. It is a highly effective treatment for pain as well.
Already more than 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.
