Hi Everyone,

Millions of people get those pesky cold sores that show up on the lips and take up to 2 weeks to heal. In most cases these outbreaks are due to oral Herpes, or HSV-1 and, up until now, there is very little that can be done about them. Margaret Boyer, however, discovered that persistent EFT dramatically improved the healing time to 3 days.

Hugs, Gary

Dearest Gary,

I wanted to share with you and others the excellent result I achieved using EFT with a cold sore that I had manifested. I am not someone who suffers regularly from cold sores. I can go a decade with no incidence, or as this year has proven, I can get 2 in one year.  This time was a bit different though.  When I am under a lot of stress a cold sore will remind me that I need to reprioritize.  I had been studying for some professional certificates and, even though I'd already reviewed the material and felt good about it, clearly my body did not agree. 

I woke up on a Wednesday morning and found a slight swelling on the too familiar place of my upper lip.  I noticed that while it was uncomfortable, it was not painful.  I decided to test myself; I estimated that my discomfort was at a 6.  I tapped: Even though I have this cold sore beginning to form…  Clearly I saw no physical result, however, the tingling and itching sensation that often accompanies these little devils was greatly diminished, down to a 2 on a scale of 0 to 10. 

I kept tapping for "this remaining cold sore" and the discomfort went to a zero out of 10 and still of course, no physical change.  Now normally after about 6 hours of time, my lip would swell as if I'd been stung by a bee, my lip could have it's own zip code and then to add insult to injury the little blister or two would make their presence known in an unattractive way. However, I tapped about 30 times throughout the day and by the end of the day, my lip swelling had gone down significantly and the blisters never got any bigger than the head of a pin.  I was ecstatic!

I woke up the next morning, the swelling was completely gone, and the blisters had already begun to dry out and recede even though they never swelled up and became unsightly.  The following 2 days I tapped at least 10 times per day Even though I still have this remaining cold sore… and at the end 3 days, my cold sore resembles nothing more than a tiny little cut on my lip.

Cold sores can take at least 10 days to get to the point I got to in 3. I couldn't be happier! I do have a topical cream for such occasions, but purposely did not use it because I wanted this to be as authentic as possible.  I am thrilled and amazed.  Although I don't intend on getting another cold sore, if I do, I am confident that it will be greatly reduced to start and will heal even faster!

Thank you so much for this wonderful process!
