How EFT heals PTSD

In this article, you'll learn about the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), its symptoms and how it can be effectively reduced using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).

While I was in the second year of my college, I suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

PTSD is defined as a mental health problem that can result from experiencing extremely stressful situations like war,  accident, or even sexual assault (1).

While this is one of the more traumatic symptoms of stress, unwanted emotions in daily life can also bring disease, a sense of low self-esteem, breakdown in relationships, and even career decisions not in our best interests.

In such a situation, it is really important to have a practical tool to be able to eliminate any unwanted emotional residue.

What I experienced is, while I went through life, experiencing many unwanted emotions such as anger, hatred, stress, and even a phobia of gas cylinders, what helped me most was attending training in Emotional Freedom Techniques (2).

EFT is very effective in reducing PTSD symptoms. The reasons are mentioned below:

  1. EFT helps to reduce stress by making your body calmer. This helps your body to shift all your systems to a more relaxed state of functioning.
  2. EFT helps to reduce the intensity of Emotional Trauma.
  3. EFT changes the way in which our brain processes emotional information that causes PTSD.

Learn how EFT Tapping heals

Emotional Freedom Techniques (tapping) is clinically proven to lower stress, tension, anxiety, past-trauma to enable health, happiness and vitality.

There was a recent study done on war veterans with symptoms of PTSD.

It was proven that EFT is effective in eliminating symptoms of PTSD and in one clinical trial, veterans’ symptoms dropped by 64% after just 6 hours long session.

Some of the symptoms of PTSD include constant nightmares, insomnia, anger, disconnecting from the external world, and in extreme cases even causing self harm.

In such a situation a 64% drop in the symptoms could be life transforming!

In fact, Kaiser Permanente one of the largest hospital systems in the US, taking care of more than 10 million patients each year,  says that EFT treats PTSD successfully in 10 sessions or less.

A sergeant who served as a US Army Medic in Desert Storm says, “After EFT, I felt released from an emotional prison. My severe hyper-vigilance has been dissolved, I now frequently experience joy and happiness, mental blocks to creativity and prosperity have been removed.”

In conclusion, EFT is an extremely scientific tool to help even symptoms such as PTSD.

Just Imagine if such profound transformations can occur in war veterans, how much more can you benefit from using EFT in your life.
