PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 14 Seasoned psychologists are movingbeyond classic "talk therapy" with a dynamic new set of natural treatmenttechniques that are providing stunning results -- especially with chronichealth conditions such as pain, stress, anxiety, phobias, weight loss, andeven deep trauma including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Known as"Energy Psychology" (and crossing over into "Energy Medicine"), publishedstudies are validating the dramatic patient experience. In a study currentlyunderway at the University of Virginia working with veterans of the Iraq warsuffering from PTSD, researchers found that the use of Energy Psychologymethods, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), has dramatically lowered levelsof the stress hormone, cortisol. The results were so surprising that theindependent lab conducting the measurement actually checked the results threetimes because they thought the remarkable findings had to be a mistake. Anarticle published in the journal Traumatology reported EP approaches have beenhighly effective (over 90%) in eliminating the effects of trauma in disastersin hundreds of cases in 12 countries. The article reported EP techniques wereequally effective in dealing with the negative effects of war and torture.
Nancy Schaub of Pittsburgh, PA reports, "After 5 back surgeries, I was onpain medication at home for 7 months and was able to get off all meds in 3 to4 weeks using the TFT (Thought Field Therapy) technique. I look at my life nowlike a person who has a second chance -- going from eight to ten narcoticpills a day down to none; allowing me to live a normal life, not controlled bypain 24 hours a day. TFT literally saved my life."
Dr. David Gruder, founding president of the leading instructional andcertifying organization in the new field, the Association for ComprehensiveEnergy Psychology (ACEP), explains the underlying principle of EP by citingthe long-held understanding in the scientific fields of chemistry andbiophysics that all of life is electrical in nature. Explains Gruder, "Just aswe have a circulatory system, a nervous system, an endocrine system and alymphatic system; we also appear to have an additional system that helpsregulate all of these. This additional system has been well-known topractitioners of traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years andappears to be primarily electromagnetic." Commonly known as "tapping," some ofthe EP techniques stem from Eastern principles of acupuncture and acupressure.The simple-to-learn routines vary depending on the condition and, oncemastered, may be done by patients on their own.
