Aileen Nobles uses EFT successfully for her husband's serious swallowing problem. Note the many approaches she employs. They are useful for many issues other than swallowing.

By Aileen Nobles

Hi Gary,

You may remember me as the writer of "Overwhelming Circumstances." My husband had a massive stroke just over a year ago and is paralyzed on one side. Originally he was fed through a "G" tube in his stomach but gradually was able to use his throat muscles allowing him to eat solid foods.

About six weeks ago he started choking on water almost every time he drank. This is quite serious as it means that water is going into the lungs and can easily turn into pneumonia. He became nervous about drinking and, of course, was quite dehydrated. The Doctor scheduled him for a swallow test.

It was obviously time for EFT.

We started tapping on...

"Even though I am in an unbearable situation I can love and accept myself anyway."

"Even though its hard to swallow the situation I'm in...."

We did a couple of rounds of the short cut using variations of the phrase above and then continued tapping intuitively on various points.

"Even though I am scared to swallow as I don't want to choke again.".....

We did a short round on...

"losing fear of choking."

"Just because I choked before it doesn't mean I will choke now."

"The choking was in my past and my past is anything before this now moment."

Then we started tapping on....

"Even though my throat muscles have forgotten how to work properly its OK. I can love and accept myself anyway, but I'd much rather be able to swallow easily."

We tapped on the karate point...

"I have been swallowing since I was born and my subconscious knows how to swallow easily."

"My throat muscles are relaxing and working perfectly."

"Swallowing water comes naturally and easily to me."

We then tested the went smoothly!

Over the last six weeks there has only been a couple of instances where he choked and that was because he in a semi-reclining position.

One more EFT success.

Love and Light
