Dyslexia and a query about EFT and mental illness

Hi Everyone,

This post comes from Lynn West. Her request is a technical one and hits on an extremely important point that is destined to be debated in the medical communities as the years unfold. We are able (with EFT) to give impressive relief to many problems for which the medical community posits a chemical cause. Why is this? I would speculate at this time (and it IS speculation) that the true cause of many of these problems is NOT chemical in nature, but energetic. Balance the energy and the problem disappears. We see this with great frequency. Does then, the "bad chemistry" disappear along with it? I would guess (but don't know) that it does. Anyone with thoughts/evidence along these lines?

Also, you may remember that Lynn worked with me on her dyslexia 2 or 3 weeks before she wrote this. Please note in her post that there are NO errors involving the transposition of letters. She said that normally there would have been several such errors and she would have corrected them before sending her post. In this case, however, she typed the whole thing through with NO such errors. Further, she has noticed no recurrence of her dyslexia since our session. Dyslexia is a major problem for those who have it. Perhaps someone who wanted to specialize in this field could establish an enviable reputation rather quickly. Just a thought.

Cheers, Gary

Hi Gary!

I haven't been on your forum long enough to know whether you have had any discussion around using the EFT process to facilitate specific neuro cellular architecture sites or cells in the brain and Central Nervous System in relation to specific mental illness problems? For example, studies of brain tissue (post mortem) of individuals who have schizophrenia and dementia, show changes and irregularities in particular cellular structures within the brain in comparison to normals. Although neuroscientists are not looking at the subtle energy substrate for disease related information, one could theorize that the changes we see in mental illness are potentially related to the quality of the flow of subtle energies that regulate our bodily processes at the physical electrochemical and bio-functional levels. Given that we know that good cells can recruit other cells under the proper conditions (as well as vice versa), I'm wondering if anyone has used EFT or energy therapy techniques and observed a change in what would appear to be brain pathology?

I'm particularly interested in the frontal cortex which is involved in executive functions of planning, organizing, and executing attentional processes and working memory along with abstract thinking and reasoning. Problems in this particular area are associated with almost every pathology in the brain related to thinking that I can think of. Neuroimaging shows metabolism and blood flow differences between normals and those affected with such things as attention, concentration, and memory problems. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Merry Christmas! I enjoy your forum immensely.
