Obesity has been declared an epidemic by numerous health organizations in the United States with up to thirty percent of the population designated as obese. According to the U.S. census Bureau the average family is 3.14 people, so one in three people in the average family is obese. Furthermore if one or both of the parents are obese there is greater likelihood the child/children will be obese as well. While many blame this epidemic on fast food, poor eating habits and lack of exercise, there are important emotional and anxiety factors that propel children and adults toward overeating.
Now there is a self help solution called EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) which combines fingertip tapping on key acupuncture points with focused thought. EFT has helped thousands quell the cravings that cause them to raid the refrigerator when they aren’t even hungry. People are amazed when their out-of-control cravings disappear after a minute of tapping. It has nothing to do with willpower. It’s all a matter of energy.
The real threat from obesity isn’t being overweight but from the health problems associated with being overweight. Some common health risks are diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, respiratory problems, psychological problems, and a poor quality of life. This is truly a preventable tragedy, especially with the help of EFT. By balancing the energy disruptions in the meridians caused by unresolved emotional events the deeper underlying emotions that tend to trigger overeating and the desire to tranquilize with food are eliminated. Using EFT people are able to make better food choices, incorporate new habits and create a healthier lifestyle. The need for willpower which takes tremendous effort and usually fails has been eliminated.
There are hundreds of reports from EFT practitioners and licensed health care professionals that testify to the procedure’s effectiveness. EFT can even be utilized with clients over the phone once the client has learned a few simple tapping points. This allows experienced EFT practitioners like me to work with clients all over the world. In between session’s clients do “homework” on themselves eliminating many of their triggers on their own. In a relatively short period of time most clients learn to use the techniques for themselves giving them an empowering tool to be used whenever needed.
