What if getting rid of food cravings and other negative thoughts was as easy as tapping your body for a few minutes whenever those cravings emerged? Would you eat less? Would you be happier?
Well, you may be surprised, and excited, to hear that such a thing is not only possible, but even effective!
The method is Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT (also known as psychological acupuncture), and it incorporates the best of Eastern medicine (acupuncture) with the best of Western psychiatry.
By focusing on specific thoughts and simply tapping specific pressure points on your body, ETF allows you to override cravings and destructive thoughts.
The act of focusing on a problem, tapping, and voicing positive affirmations is said to clear any emotional block in your body, restore balance to your mind, and help rewire your thinking to make the thoughts and feelings far less likely.
If talk of pressure points and emotional blocks makes you suspicious, breathe easy. EFT has real clinical trials backing its effectiveness and has been proven time and time again in studies that highlight its ability to deliver on these promises.
The Studies Behind EFT
Among many others, one recent study conducted by Griffith University’s School of Medicine in Australia has shown that EFT was successful in reducing food cravings for up to six months in overweight or obese participants.
The research showed that after just four two-hour sessions, food cravings for sweet carbohydrates like cakes and chocolate and salty foods like chips were significantly reduced. And that reduction lasted for the following six months until the follow-up!
Psychologist Dr Peta Stapleton, who lead the study, said the technique was painless and easy to learn. In addition, she remarked that participants in the trial were even surprised at how quickly their cravings were reduced, even if they had had them for years prior!
Dr Stapleton considers EFT to be an effective long term strategy and excellent tool for lifestyle changes, because it helps over-ride emotions at a sub-conscious level.
And she’s not the only medical professional to see EFT’s potential, either.
In fact, EFT has met the criteria for the American Psychological Association’s evidence-based treatments of various conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which is notoriously difficult to treat through traditional means and responds poorly to medications like antidepressants.
EFT has also been used to treat everything from addiction and anxiety, to physical pain. Since it operates on the level of the mind, and via your unique intent, the possibilities are truly limitless. You may want to experiment with EFT’s other benefits, in addition to simply controlling your food cravings.
