How To Reverse PCOS With EFT Tapping?
EFT Tapping For PCOS
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is one of the common hormonal imbalance disorders among women specifically those of reproductive age. Emotional Freedom Tapping techniques prove effective in reversing PCOS and this blog is going to delve deeper in ways EFT Tapping can help in dealing with PCOS.
Before you ask me how complex can PCOS turn out to be, answer a few questions.
Do you suffer irregular periods?
Do these delayed periods scare the heck of you?
Have you noticed pattern of thick and dark hair growth on various parts of your body?
Due to presence of excessive androgens in female body (male hormones which women too have), PCOS is shown to result in male-pattern baldness, also known as scalp hair loss.
To further add to ones worry, severe forms of acne is a commonly-experienced form of PCOS symptoms’.
Women are saddened by confirmation of PCOS condition. No medical treatment can altogether help you set free from PCOS. Hence, you get to treat them based on your end goal which can be either defeating frequent acnes or ease in conceiving.
Let’s get started and introduce you to a world where without medications, you can, in real, reverse PCOS.
What is PCOS?
To begin with, PCOS, or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, is a condition where the ovaries secrete an abnormal number of androgens in the female bodies of reproductive age.
These hormonal imbalances result in situations mentioned below:
- Changes in menstrual cycle
- Irregular bleeding
- Increased facial and body hair in unwanted body parts
- Increased acne
- Dark skin patches
- Thinning scalp hair
- Cysts in ovaries
- Weight gain
- Slow Metabolism
These hormonal imbalances also affect a woman’s child bearing ability and in extreme cases, she may turn out to be infertile. Yet, many clinical studies suggest that significant proportion of women with PCOS have successfully been able to get pregnant and conceive.
In order to improve your fertility, PCOS shall be treated rightly. It is a condition that truly defeat ‘one-size-fits-all’ situation. Over the years, symptoms of PCOS have changed and women with PCOS have confirmed the same.
If you want to beat the statistics where majority of women get to know them facing PCOS when they’re all set to conceive, we want to aware you of symptoms women facing PCOS generally have.
How to identify PCOS?
Before we delve into therapeutic treatment of PCOS, you should be in a position to identify if you’re suffering with PCOS or not.
National Institute of Health (NIH) states that women diagnosed with PCOS usually have two conditions of the below-mentioned three conditions:
- Absence of ovulation, leading to irregular menstrual periods or no periods at all
- High levels of androgens (male hormones) or signs of high androgens, such as facing excess body or facial hair
- Cysts (fluid-filled sacs) on one or both ovaries—"polycystic" literally means "having many cysts" (1)
It is important to note that many women with PCOS don’t have cysts on their ovaries and hence, judging whether you have PCOS based on only cysts stands insignificant.
If you ask me most common symptoms of PCOS, speaking from experience, they are irregular menstruation cycles and sudden weight gain.
When you have higher-than-normal levels of androgens, ovulation does not occur regularly. Due to this, women end up facing fluid-filled cysts within ovaries beside scalp hair loss and excessive acne.
Furthermore, women with insulin problems are prone to PCOS. The reason being higher level of insulin leads to excessive production of androgens thus leading your body to the loop of PCOS.
Effect of PCOS on Mental / Physical health
Do you know PCOS tend to run in families?
Women with sister and/or mother having records of PCOS are at higher risk. Researchers suggest PCOS is likely a combined result of genetic and environment factors.
Another question in making, “Can PCOS affect your mental health?”
Women with mild PCOS may face less strain on mental health as compared to women with worse PCOS profile until environmental factors stay constant. However, environmental factors, these days, are extremely unpredictable, for ex: Covid-19 tapping human lives.
As a result, women with PCOS shall be at different levels of mental health: mild, moderate and severe.
"With PCOS there are some troublesome symptoms that can really affect your self-esteem and often women put up with these for a long time. It's important that we get the message out there that if you're worried about something, go and seek help and if it does result in a diagnosis, we can begin to treat it”.

How to keep mental health in check?
Stress, anxiety and self-criticism come hand in hand with ailments and disorders including PCOS. Physical health can be protected by medications but where would you go for treatment of mental health?
Whose advice shall you seek and how should you act?
Fortunately, awareness for mental health is spreading, gaining focus of humans on critical need to treat mental illness effectively.
Journey to self-acceptance begin with the firm decision to seek therapeutic treatment.
Once, you’ve decided to go for therapy, you’re 40% there. Rest 60% will come after decision of which therapy to go for.
One of the primitive and most significant therapy that stands effective for PCOS is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), established by Gary Craig in 1993.
What ARE EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUES?
For over 5000 years, humans have been knowing the healing properties derived from tapping various locations.
Emotional Freedom Techniques or EFT Tapping is a form of therapy involving process of intentional tapping on acupuncture meridian end-points based on psychological statements being said out loud. (2)
The extensive use of EFT treatment can also be understood from the following features of Emotional Freedom Techniques Therapy:
- Easy to learn
- Flexible enough to use
- Quick technique with Long Lasting results
We closely work on uncovering troubling memories and uncomfortable thoughts. For example, in case of PCOS, weight gain can be a troubling issue.
When tapping on meridian points while saying out statements aloud, calming responses are sent to body, allowing you to reprogram. Soon with EFT, a change in energy is experienced and you start recovering from the trouble (s) faced initially.
Common meridian points used in EFT are:
- Karate chop point on the hand
- Under the nose
- Under the arm
For those new to EFT, it is a Tapping Therapy which combines tapping on acupressure points while saying statements out loud to accept situations. As we explore EFT for ourselves, we can become more aware of our thoughts, belief and emotions.
