Has anyone tried EFT?
« on: August 16, 2009, 06:10:17 PM »
Hello everyone.

I'm thinking of trying EFT as part of my treatment plan for fatigue.  Has anyone tried it?  If so, what results did you get?

Thanks,

Mike.

Electronic Funds Transfer.
Works everytime if money is coming in :)

Seriously though I have some serious issues in that area. Missed a year of employment not so long ago.
I saw loads of people at the time and was in real despair. I thought I was on the scr@p heap on a perm basis.
I met all sorts of strange practitioners in my search for help.

It turned out swimming worked well for me. No matter how tired you are you can swim. I couldn't swim more than 25m at first. I did it every day for several months and now 2 years later I've recovered 100%. I didn't think exercise would have such a good mental effect as well as physical. Worth looking in to

Swimming and running for me. Very therapeutic.

Tried acupuncture a few times but just on my knee. Sort of worked although I don't think I would consider it for anything non mechanical.
I think I hate being indecisive.

i wish i had time to go swimming or whatever.
I get fatigue really really badly. thought it was a symptom of depression and got on various anti-depresents.
been trying to sort it out for years. I can't stay awake more than 2 hours in a day. its a MASSIVE struggle.
i have no idea what to do now... but swimming you say?

I would definitely give swimming ago. It's the lowest impact exercise you can do and is a great work-out for the whole body.

Presumably a daft question since everyone else seems to know, but what is EFT?
To avoid confusion, please assume all words above are jovial and follow the prefix "In my opinion".

It is Emotional Freedom Technique. Mrs 38th asked me to attend a session to suss it out. I knew nothing before and found it a little akin to hypnosis but with a touch of acupressure lobbed in. I can't say I was bowled over but I could see that it could have a beneficial effect inmany people and it is very relaxing. It does seem to make sense but like others here I beleive that good excercise can also promote wellbeing.

Any form of exercise will make you feel more alive. Nature did design us to go running after animals in the forest and try and kill them, which would have been hard work.  :lol:

Swimming, can't beat it. I used to swim all the time years ago and like most people gave it up for things like pubs. I took it up again in April this year to get myself moving again after that accident I had back in Feb'. Its been working a treat along with some Osteopath treatment.

My local pool is 33.3m, an old one from the 60's and its a bit bigger than the standard public pools. It took me an hour to swim 12 lengths when i first went and now I do around 40 in the same time and it definitely makes you feel more energised and fit. Plus I've lost a stone so it can't be bad.

Swimming is better than anti-depresents in my opinion.
Find somewhere open late and do it at the end of the day you can really clear your head. Many pools are almost empty in the last hour.
For me it's replaced spliffs as a way to relax.
