Hi Everyone,

Steve Wells writes from Australia with a "coughing case" for which no one else could bring relief. Please note these things about this case.

Steve had the client address stress related causes. The success involved points yet again toward an emotional cause for a physical issue.Persistence was required.This was not a perfect case wherein a few rounds of tapping wipes out the problem forever. Instead, the client is able to "control the cough." Does more work need to be done on underlying emotional issues? Perhaps. Is this as good as it is going to get? Who knows? We are still learning here.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary,

You may recall that Dave Lake successfully used EFT to cure a stress related cough last year. I have had similar success recently, and submit this testimonial from a refinery worker. It should be noted that when this gentleman was referred to me his doctor commented that the cough had stumped even "the top respiratory physician in town".


Steve: As agreed, here is some background of my coughing condition and outcomes after practising the EFT technique.

1. The coughing symptoms first appeared at work and were raised in the Medical Centre as an incident on 28/06/96.

2. It was diagnosed as Asthma and appropriate medications were prescribed.

3. Further tests were conducted over a period of 2 years to determine the cause and whether it was Occupational asthma.

4. During this period ; Xrays were taken, 2 x Histamine provocation tests were conducted on 18/3/96 and 18/06/98, methacholine bronchial challenge and many lung function tests were performed. Approx 10 different asthma medications were tried with minimum affect.

5. Respiratory Physician, _______ _______, finally cleared me of asthma and advised against any further medication.

6. Coughing persisted into 1999, in desperation I approach Dr. _______ at __________. Blood tests were taken which revealed nothing abnormal, he then referred me to you.

7. After 3 appointments from 06/04/99 - 16/7/99, I have been practising the EFT technique for stress management.

8. Approx. 2 month after commencing the technique I noticed the urge to cough had dissipated, tightness in the chest had gone and when I was in a stressful situation I felt confident of suppressing the cough through mentally focussing on the technique routine, or where the situation allowed itself, physically practising the technique.

9. I feel better in myself knowing I am in control of the cough.


*** End of testimonial ***

STEVE CONTINUES: I am finding numerous cases like this where physical conditions are shifting when EFT is applied to the emotional issues in the person's life - and those that are associated to the condition. My theory is that once the blocks in the person's energy system are removed, they have more energy available for healing. It is the body which heals itself after all.

Keep well,

Steve Wells
