How EFT heals PTSD

“When our emotional health is in a bad state, so is our level of self-esteem. We have to slow down and deal with what is troubling us, so that we can enjoy the simple joy of being happy and at peace with ourselves.” Jess C Scott

The one fundamental right of every human being is the right to have a life full of health, vitality, abundance and happiness.

Over the years unwanted stress and emotions take over creating emotional imbalance , sometimes even leading to disease.


In certain situations, extreme stress or emotional trauma can lead to some very debilitating emotional breakdowns.

One of the side effects to extreme stress is a clinical diagnosis called PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

As per the National Center for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), it can be defined as a mental health problem that can result from experiencing extreme 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 Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

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

What was proven was that EFT was extremely effective in eliminating symptoms of EFT and In one clinical trial, veterans’ symptoms dropped by 64% after just 6 hour long sessions.

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 transformational!

Infact, Kaiser Permanente is one of the largest hospital systems in the US, taking care of more than 10 million patients each year,  say 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 feel 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.
