According to Huffington Post, there is some incredible EFT work being done with veterans suffering from PTSD. The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), promotes recovery from PTSD in war veterans.
EFT, otherwise known as Tapping, combines Western psychotherapy with Eastern "acupressure points," used in acupuncture. EFT Tapping offers numerous benefits for veterans suffering from PTSD, including:
-requires no equipment, and can be done anywhere for any amount of time
-provides recovery from PTSD for some in a matter of days, where as conventional talk therapy and medication can sometimes lead to little or no improvement
-provides deep, lasting relief of a range of PTSD symptoms, including phobias, sleep issues, physical pain, mood and emotional issues, violent behaviors, night terrors, substance abuse, and more
-no side effects
-can be practiced on your own at zero cost (You can learn how to do it in 5 minutes.)
It sounds too good to be true, but study findings are notable and beginning to gain serious consideration from the government. EFT researchers testified their results treating PTSD in war veterans in front of Congress in July 2010.
Nick Ortner filmed a documentary called "The Tapping Solution," tracking 10 people over a four-day Tapping retreat. All the participants shared one trait; they were all desperate to find a long-term solution to their problems from serious emotional issues and debilitating physical sickness. One of the film's subject's was a veteran who had been suffering from PTSD for 30 years.
Jon's transformation in the documentary was profound and intense. Thousands of vets who have been helped as a result of The Stress Project have felt the same way. For Jon, the Tapping retreat was the start of a new life. Before the Tapping retreat Jon's PTSD had become debilitating, along with various other problems he experienced in the Vietnam War. He had alienated his family, as became more and more angry, grumpy, and irritable. His wife reported he had stopped smiling and never laughed. After the Tapping retreat, Jon's back pain was improved. He also realized that a lot of his guilt concerning the war had kept him from living a happy home life. After the retreat, Jon felt free, and he began enjoying his family again.
So many veterans suffer from PTSD, and many of them have tried various therapies that have not worked. Tapping has helped thousands of veterans to recover from PTSD when many other treatment methods have failed. The Stress Project has treated 2,126 veterans with PTSD. If you know a veteran suffering from PTSD, send him this link, and urge them to contact The Stress Project, which offers 6 free tapping sessions to qualified veterans.
