Hi Everyone,

Would you like some evidence that unresolved emotional issues contribute to heavy menstrual cycles? Just read this article by Judy Whitcraft. She says, "...we also did specific work on the hurtful words/phrases that were said, releasing the attached emotion, bringing her level of intensity on all issues from 10 out of 10 to 0's. I called her two hours after our session to check on her, and she said the bleeding had decreased by 50%.  She was relieved and grateful to her body for responding.  I checked in the next day, and it had decreased another 25%, which left the bleeding at her normal heavy cycle."

Hugs, Gary


By Judy Whitcraft

My client "Sandra," called saying she needed an emergency phone session, as she was bleeding, and the medical professionals had told her to go to the emergency room.  My first thought was, "You DO need to go to the emergency room, this is not the place for EFT."   However, there was more to the story.  Sandra was experiencing very, very heavy menstrual bleeding. This had happened before, and she had gone to ER which did not help.  The medicine also had not helped. She had to let the bleeding run its course, and ended up anemic for months.  Also, Sandra did not have medical insurance. There was no way she would consider going to the ER.

Sandra is very intelligent and very in touch with her emotions and how they affect her body. She was convinced that this bleeding episode was triggered from the past weekend's upset with in-laws visiting for 2 days. The in-laws, as usual, had berated her and used vulgar language, and her husband had chimed in with them. She was very distraught that the father of her two small children had dishonored her once again. We worked for an hour with that upset.  We did not do EFT statements at all for the bleeding itself.  Some examples of the setup statements while tapping on the karate chop were:

Even though it is so painful that my husband does not stand up for me, I choose to honor and love myself anyway.

Even though this weekend was so stressful, and I feel like I am at the end of my rope, I choose to honor and love myself anyway.

Even though the words that were said to me, cut me to the core, and I feel like I have all these open wounds, I choose to honor and love myself anyway.

We also did specific work on the hurtful words/phrases that were said, releasing the attached emotion, bringing her level of intensity on all issues from 10 out of 10 to 0's. GC COMMENT:  Good!  The more specific the better.

I called her two hours after our session to check on her, and she said the bleeding had decreased by 50%.  She was relieved and grateful to her body for responding.  I checked in the next day, and it had decreased another 25%, which left the bleeding at her normal heavy cycle.

She never went to the doctor, or the ER, or took medicine, and we never tapped directly on the issue of the heavy bleeding.

We both knew there must be core issues that we had not explored. In later sessions, we worked on the molestation she endured when she was a 4-7 year old child.  She now reports that when she thinks about that early time, there is no emotion attached to it. It will be interesting to see if the bleeding episodes disappear also.

Respectfully submitted,

Judy Whitcraft

Follow-up

The following is a letter I received from Sandra 4 months later after she had gone through 3 more menstrual cycles. Keep in mind that her very heavy periods and PMS had been occurring for decades.

Hi Judy,
Overall, my periods are probably 25% lighter than they used to be before our EFT session. That is a HUGE thing for me, since I used to wake up in the morning in a little pool of blood (gross, I know). I haven't had my blood count checked in a while, but it's quite possible that I'm not anemic like I used to be in the past.

Plus, my PMS is almost gone as well. I used to have a "crying day" just before my period would start, and everyone around me learned to stay away, ha-ha. This month, however, my husband was truly shocked when I announced that I needed to run to the store to pick up some feminine supplies as I was running out, because he didn't even realize I already had my period for a couple of days... He said , "But you were just your normal self the other day, I can't believe it! You didn't try to pick a fight and you didn't cry at all!" :)

Thank you so very much for this incredible change, Sandra

GC COMMENT: Great job Judy!  Going for the emotional drivers instead of just the symptoms is an efficient way of getting to the core of many problems.  Since Sandra's periods are improved but still on the heavy side, I would suspect more unresolved issues.  A bit more digging and, perhaps, deeper work on the molestation experiences may provide even more benefits.  See The Gold Standard (Official) EFT Tapping Tutorial for quality approaches.
