This is extraordinarily good news… The Doctor is in….actually in each and every one of us!

Billions of dollars are spent on prescription medications annually. This coming year 48,000 Americans will die from unintentional overdoses. Sixty percent of surgeries produce the same results as placebos. Do you see a pattern here?

We’ll be examining two life-changing Mind-Body systems that provide the sparkling Gift of Healing… those who choose to accept them: Dr. Sarno’s Method and Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as the “Tapping Therapy.”

Dr. John E. Sarno

One of the brightest stars in the field of Mind-Body science – as well as one of its most controversial figures – is Dr. John E. Sarno. He is fiercely defended by the thousands he cured, while ignored or ridiculed by many of his peers in the mainstream medical world. Who can blame them? They’re loyally immersed in the prevalent (and lucrative) medical model of pharmaceuticals, treatments and surgery.

Dr. Sarno revolutionized the way we look at health and illness. In his words, “Instead of healing people, the broken health care system is prolonging people’s suffering….the herniated disc, the torn meniscus in the knee…have resulted in much well-meaning but needless surgery.” His ingenious research and “hands-on” medical practice unearthed many uncomfortable truths in the medical world:

  • Most pain is psychosomatic: This doesn’t mean that “it’s all in your head”. The “abnormality/defect” will defiantly jump out at you (and at your physician) from an X-Ray, MRI, CT Scan or sonogram, triggering very real and debilitating pain. But the SOURCE is psychological.
  • Millions of people with bulging discs, torn tendons, deteriorating bones due to aging, and spinal abnormalities have NO pain. In other words, much of the diagnosed impairments are normal parts of the human condition… and are not causing the pain!
  • Which ailments are included? Just about any pain in the body is a moving target for Dr. Sarno’s method. Pain in the back, hips, knees, TMJ, carpel tunnel, migraines, whiplash and neuralgia are ideal candidates. Shockingly, so are the ailments of fibromyalgia, ulcers, IBS, depression and Lyme disease! In fact, Dr. Sarno felt that people generally embrace the more popular disorders!

Dr. Sarno’s Theory:

 The subconscious mind is simply trying to protect us by diverting our attention from all the rage that past traumas, sadness and emotional pain would bring to the surface, if we dared focus on it. This is accomplished by a mild (and harmless) oxygen deprivation skillfully aimed at a part of our body where we would exhibit the least resistance. Interestingly, this is all it takes to create excruciating pain!   Sensitive, mild-mannered individuals are most at risk. For example:

Chaim Yankel develops lower back pain which starts eroding the quality of his life. He stoically accepts it because he once had a back injury in high school. He also recalls that his father’s back started hurting him when he was approximately the same age. Once he accepts the mind-body connection to his pain, (which Dr. Sarno claims over 80% of patients do not) he’s on the path to permanent healing.

Emotional Freedom Technique:

 “It’s quick, easy, a child can do it & it works on everything!” Sounds too good to be true? Welcome to Emotional Freedom Technique!

I’ve B”H had the zechus to be an EFT Practitioner for over 11 years, meeting intuitive, amazing women who all  came to the same empowering conclusion: “Enough is enough!”

Enough with putting up with relentless stress, anxiety and low self-esteem…Enough with allowing past experiences and memories to drain the present… Enough with therapies/treatments that simply rehash all the “stuff” without getting to the finish line…

 What is EFT?

EFT is a gourmet blend of Eastern & Western wisdom in a “drug-free zone.”  It’s a gentle, incredibly powerful Energy Psychology method that will knock your socks off. It diminishes, and often abolishes, a diverse range of emotional & physical ailments.

 It’s sometimes called “Emotional Acupuncture”, but instead of using pins on 100’s of acupoints, EFT generates astounding results by tapping gently on 10-12 specific ones. These acupoints access the healing points along the pathways of the body’s energy meridians. We’re not just a bunch of chemicals & bones! We were created with a complex energy system that responds, like a sapling to sunlight, to the therapeutic healing power of EFT.

 How Does It Work?

 EFT is based on the premise that over 85% of all ailments, emotional and physical, are rooted in the emotional.  Most of us can easily relate to this! Illness occurs due to a disruption in the person’s energy system, which is a souvenir of a negative, unresolved emotional memory.

A simple way to explain how itworks: Once a circuit is shorted you can’t turn on the light until the circuit breaker has been reset. EFT resets the circuits in your energy system.

Hurtful memories are stored faithfully in our sub-conscious, even as we valiantly attempt to ignore them: A sharp word (spoken 30 minutes or 30 years ago) can be disrupting your energy system big time!  By the way, Dr. Sarno’s Method and EFT is a highly compatible shidduch! I often inject a “Sarno-Tap” into the session.

Notice the emotional source in the following three scenarios. The EFT process will inevitably zero in on several tappable issues:

  • Ashley is anxious about meeting critical relatives at an upcoming picnic. She “coincidentally” gets sick the day before the event.
  • As Patty’s relationship with her mother-in-law becomes more stressful, she suffers from migraines regularly.
  • Eric was humiliated in class in fourth grade. He has been prone to morning panic attacks for the past five school years.

Here’s how Gary Craig, EFT’s founder, describes the results you can expect:

“…my jaw still drops at the results. I’ve lost count of the number of phobias, panic attacks, traumatic memories, guilt & physical ailments that have been elegantly relieved….even though EFT violates just about every conventional belief out there, the results remain remarkable…We don’t get 100%. But….it often works where nothing else will.”

It’s time to take a leap outside of your comfort zone! The results will be well worth it!
