Hi Everyone,

Pieter de Zwart from New Zealand addresses some important emotional issues with EFT and helps to end 6 months of heavy menstrual bleeding. A hysterectomy operation was thus canceled. Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Hello Gary,

At a free public introduction talk to promote awareness and acceptance of complementary healing modalities with 4 colleagues (3 female, 1 male) I presented EFT. Afterwards I was approached by a lady who was asking for help with her menstrual problems... So here’s me thinking, me??! Why me? There are 3 female practitioners (not EFT-ers) here and as a guy what do I know about menstruation and female stuff…!

Anyway, EFT appealed to her and obviously she felt comfortable with me for addressing the issue. 

Turned out she was at her wits end as she had had continual heavy menstrual bleeding for six months now. She had seen doctors, specialists, other natural healers, nothing had worked, so now she was scheduled for a hysterectomy the week after. Could EFT help? Uhm, well….  My NLP trainer’s words again sounded in my head: “Work with what you’re being presented and trust the process”. 

So I did exactly that. I agreed to make the appointment and asked her to come to the session with a list of issues that bothered her, especially distant past events. Before the session I also searched on for case histories and called an advanced EFT practitioner colleague, for pointers and advice. The results have been amazing.

After the first session in which we worked on several anxiety issues, amongst which guilt feelings about not being able to say no to a very demanding father and later putting him into a rest home, not visiting him every weekend, feeling put down by mum, etc., her bleeding eased off significantly.

A week later at session 2, I asked my partner who’s an Ayurvedic lifestyle consultant also to be there to create some additional female energy and support. She gave Mary also some herbal formulas to take to further help settle the bleeding.

After session 2 where the emphasis of the work had been on issues to do with family (father, sister and son in particular), she reported that the bleeding had stopped altogether and the operation had been called off! 

And although Mary felt the herbs also helped, she credits EFT with adverting the operation and gaining so much emotional freedom. The guilt feelings have gone, she’s able to stand up to dad and others now in an appropriate manner, etc., etc.. She continues to apply EFT by herself to eradicate the remnants and apply ‘first aid’ when the occasional stresses go up again.

Keywords/issues we tapped on included:

Guilt feelings about putting dad in a home; not visiting dad every weekend; Inability to say no to dad; Anger at dad’s selfish and ‘being difficult’ attitude.

Best regards

Pieter de Zwart
