Hi Everyone,

Eric Robins, MD uses EFT frequently in his busy medical clinic. Although he rarely has time to do a detailed EFT session, he is often able to get impressive results in a few minutes. Here are two examples: Premature ejaculation and aversion to medications.

Hi Gary,

I have two case reports for you.

The first case involves a 35 year old male patient who was sent to me as a second opinion for premature ejaculation.  He had previously seen one of my colleagues and was given some topical anesthetic cream (EMLA) to apply to the glans penis 45 minutes before intercourse to numb and "desensitize" the area.  Unfortunately this didn't work.

As I got a brief history, the patient shared with me that prior to getting married, he had been with many other women sexually and premature ejaculation was not a problem for him.  He and his wife decided to forgo intercourse until their honeymoon night.  When the honeymoon arrived and it was time to consummate the marriage, he ejaculated after about 2 strokes, and was highly embarrassed and ashamed by this (you could say his honeymoon literally came and went).

Since that time he'd had 5 years of persistent premature ejaculation.  I asked him if there was a specific memory he could think of related to this problem, and he remembered the honeymoon night.  The intensity level of the emotions was very high (11 on a 10 scale, in his words).  I did the tapping, and in less than 5 minutes, all the emotional intensity was gone.  I did a quick choices round, focusing on being able to accept himself, relax, and have better ejaculatory control during sex.

He called me a week later and said he felt great, and was having satisfactory intercourse with his wife with no premature ejaculation.  All this in the midst of a busy medical clinic...

The second case involved a 10 year old boy who was having moderate, intermittent right testicular pain, which was worsened after doing heavy lifting.  His physical exam was completely normal.  No infection, torsion, or hernia was noted.  My diagnosis was a groin strain with pain radiating down into the testicle area.  I told him that a short course of anti-inflammatory medications (like motrin or advil) would help the problem, to which he replied, "There is no way I can swallow any medicines; they make me sick."

His father was in the room, shaking his head and concurring that the child had never in his life been able to take any medications - he'd either spit them up or vomit them up.  I asked the child to think about taking medication and he replied, "I can't, because it tastes nasty, and then I get a nauseous feeling (pointing to his upper chest and throat area)".  The set up phrase was, Even though I can't take any medication because it tastes nasty and gives me a nauseous feeling in my throat, I'm still a great kid.  About 2 or 3 rounds of tapping took care of this medication issue. He could then easily imagine taking the medication with no problem.  God, I love this work.
