Eft therapy

Hi, hope every1 is ok? Has anyone tried Gary Craig’s EFT for anxiety/MS symptoms? A midwife I work with told me it’s really good. Was going to give it a try because since diagnosis in May this year I’ve been really anxious/panic attacks/ unable to sleep? Also my dr is weaning me off citalopram and onto metazapine (excuse spelling).Has or does any1 take metazapine and does it help? Thank you xxxx

@gemma1988 , I’ve never heard of this complementary therapy, but I found this article about it:-
http://www.skepdic.com/eft.html

I think we can be sceptical about a lot of these therapies, but the bottom line is whether they actually make you feel better. So, if it’s not too prohibitvely costly, you may want to “suck it and see”.

As for Mirtazapine, this is another anti-depressant, which your GP is looking to use in place of the Citalopram. After a while, our bodies can become used to these drugs and they lose their efficacy, so your GP may have felt that a change is needed. There’s some more details here :-

Hi @gemma1988 ! … EFT is an amazing therapy and won’t cost a penny as there are many great sites out there and free youtube vids … It could be well worth going to see a qualified EFT therapist so you know you are tapping where you need to and are saying the right things!

Paul McKenna uses EFT so much now too and I have seen it help many people, I’ve seen it help with anxiety and weight loss and smoking…

Let us know how you do! 🙂

Meditation would also help massively with anxious thoughts xxx

Thanks cazzzzy, I’m defo going to try it for the anxiety I’m hoping This new medication will help too…as I’m so anxious all the time and just need some kind of relief I was also thinking of hypnotherapy too xxx

Yes hypnotherapy would also be very beneficial too… These things do work remarkably well and work on our thought patterns which is where the problems lie… They will help you to start thinking more positively..

There are some free EFT videos on this site http://www.tapping.com/

Also if you can find time to do this meditation track every day or every other day it will help any anxiety…
