Hi Everyone,

Those with heartburn and GERD should check out this brief article by Rebecca Snyder. She says, "Needless to say, it was so effective that I completely forgot having suffered for 15+ years with GERD. This recent episode was the first time in 3 years that I had any heartburn at all." Please consult physicians on all medical issues.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary,

I wanted to share another EFT first aid miracle with you. A couple of nights ago, after overindulging at my favorite restaurant, I awoke around 2 AM with hellacious heartburn. I went into my bathroom to find some antacid, sleepy and angry at myself for overdoing the food and drink. I couldn't find any, and knew there was no way I'd get back to sleep with my belly churning like that. Then I thought to try tapping the heartburn away. I rated the heartburn at about a 9 on the 0-10 scale. I did several shortcut rounds on:

Even though I'm mad at myself for eating too much of that rich food, I forgive myself.
Reminder phrase: I'm so mad at myself!
(Heartburn rating down to a 6)

Even though I drank too much wine, and now I'm paying the price, I love and forgive myself for this overindulgence.
Reminder phrase: Paying the price.
(Heartburn rating down to 3)

Then I remembered someone had posted some excellent articles in your newsletter where she directly addressed her body's natural healing ability, so I did one round on:

Even though I overindulged, I ask my body to neutralize the excess acid in my stomach and to process the contents comfortably.

Reminder phrases: My body's natural wisdom, Neutralize the excess acid, Thank you Body for processing that rich food comfortably.

Bingo! Heartburn a flat 0 after a tremendous belch! It took all of maybe 5 minutes and left me so relaxed that I went back to bed and fell asleep immediately.

Now, here's the kicker: The next day while I was mentally blessing you for having given me the tool to take care of yet another problem, I remembered why I thought I had antacids in the house. About 3 years ago, I suffered from chronic GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). Heartburn that has been a nearly constant companion for at least 15 years. It was one of the first things I tapped for after learning this wonderful technique, and though I don't recall exactly, it may have been the reason I did the search that turned up the EFT website.

Needless to say, it was so effective that I completely forgot having suffered for 15+ years with GERD. This recent episode was the first time in 3 years that I had any heartburn at all.

Thank you Gary, from the bottom of my (burn-free!) heart.
