Hi Gary,

I found out about EFT about a month and a half ago, and am amazed and excited about the possibilities EFT offers!  One aspect of EFT that I find intriguing is surrogate tapping.  When my two-year-old spiked a fever one day, I was curious to try surrogate EFT on it, just to see what happened, since I know EFT works well on emotional issues, but wondered how it would work on a condition that is apparently physical (a viral infection). 

His temperature at 2:00 p.m. was 103.4.  All morning he had been lethargic, had no appetite, had a cough and runny nose; in short, he was a miserable little guy.  Shortly after, I wrote down some phrases to use and surrogate tapped on each one twice.  The phrases I used were,

Even though I have this illness, I’m a great kid.

Even though I have a fever of 103.4, my body is strong and resilient.

Even though I have this virus, my body can fight back.

Even though I am sick, my immune system is strong, I want it to strengthen, I want my white blood cells to increase to fight this illness.

Even though I feel rotten and have no energy, my body is amazing and can beat this illness!

An hour later, at 3:15, his temperature had dropped to 100.9 with no medication.  Half an hour after that, he was up off the couch, his face was brighter, he started to play with toys, he was smiling and he wanted to eat.  Despite the fact that when my children get sick, their worst time is usually in the late afternoon or evening, he only had a really low-grade fever the rest of the evening until he went to bed.

The next day, he didn’t have a fever waking up, but was still struggling with a few symptoms: still a decreased appetite, he was cranky, and still had a runny nose.  I did a few more tapping rounds in the morning,

Even though I am still recovering from this illness and am very cranky, I’m a great kid.

Even though I am still recovering and don’t have much appetite, I choose to eat to regain my strength.

Even though I still have this runny nose, my body is strong and resilient.

Even though I’m still struggling to get over this illness, my body is amazing and I can fully recover.

He continued to improve the rest of the day, and even felt good enough to go out to some Halloween festivities that night.  I can honestly say that I have never had a child recover from an illness like this so quickly, and with four kids, we’ve had a few illnesses to deal with. 

The second day after he started the illness, he has a little residual runny nose, which we continue to tap on, but no other symptoms and no fever.  Absolutely amazing!  I am a firm believer in the power of surrogate EFT, even on a condition that appears to be purely physical.  EFT may not be able to take the infection or virus away, but it sure can help the body defeat it and heal faster.

Thank you so much for this amazing tool for myself and my family!!!
