Hi Everyone,

Niels' mother first told me of this superb EFT progress on his long list of severe allergies. She asked her son to give a personal account and this is the result. Read it with curiosity because it opens many doors for the serious student. Physicians should be consulted on medical issues like this.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary,

Here is my experience with EFT:

Since I was about 11 I've suffered from various ailments (asthma, IBS, acne, eczema, gum disease....the list goes on). Because of this I've dabbled in and out of various alternative healing techniques (Reiki, traditional Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, meditation... etc). None of this helped - when I got rid of one problem, another would replace it.

Two years ago I decided that my list of problems were due to gluten allergy and decided to completely cut it out of my diet. That achieved some progress... my skin got better and my digestive system improved. But living without gluten in your diet is not easy... all the good things in life seem to contain it (pancakes, pizza, bread, pasta...the list goes on). Also, my stomach was still prone to weakness.

Anyhow, while staying with my parents temporarily after graduating from the university, my mother kept pestering me with EFT. To be nice, I sat down with her and watched one of your DVDs (the one about allergens). Although I found it interesting, I was sceptical. I'm very keen about NOT polluting my body with chemicals (conventional medicines/drugs, food additives, caffeine, excessive alcohol etc...) but I was still sceptical after achieving limited success with the other 'alternative' therapies.

To be perfectly honest, I decided to give EFT a go to get my mum to shut up about it. So I made a list of all the allergens that could possibly exist (gluten, cat-hair, meat, fish, all vitamins, all the way to DDT, lead, radioactive isotopes and heavy metals) ... pretty much everything we could possibly be exposed to in our environment.

There were about 100 items on it and I cut the list into individual pieces of paper and here's what I did: Left the paper on my stomach while I did a standard EFT routine starting with
Even though I/my body may react negatively to gluten (or whatever)...

Then I would do 4-5 rounds with this just alternating the words to whatever popped into my mind while I was tapping away. For example:

Despite the past, I give myself permission to enjoy life and all its pleasures.
I have the right to clear skin/a balanced digestive system.

There was no particular structure as to how long I would say each phrase. Instead of a list on paper, one can use a sample of whatever one is allergic to (e.g. for gluten a plastic bag with flour or breadcrumbs...but for DDT you might want to stick with the paper version).

I would go through 6-7 bits of paper a day, sometimes a few more. This would take between 30- 60 minutes each time and was probably a bit too much. Every day while tapping I would experience a symptom from a long list of ailments (rashes, flatulence, nausea, bloatedness, wheezing, and coughing).

It was a new symptom everyday. I soon discovered that when I started to feel unwell both physically and emotionally, that was when I had 'struck the nail on the head'. None of the symptoms lasted more than a few days and within 10 days I was able to stomach a pizza without having to run to the toilet afterwards. That had never happened before.

Nine months later, I eat pretty much what I want without troubles (within reason... I'm pretty sure eating 3 chocolate bars in a row would give me a dodgy stomach ... but that is not an allergy ... but a natural reaction ... one chocolate bar is no problem though) and I feel more in control of my health than ever; my skin is much, much better and my stomach is calm 95 per cent of the time. Occasionally my stomach erupts when I'm stressed but then I just fix it in with 10 minutes of EFT. At present I am still experimenting with EFT as a way of dealing with life's other woes.

Thanks Gary, your teachings have really helped me a lot,
