Introduction to the Emotional Freedom Technique “ Diseases are to be diagnosed and prevented via energy field assessment.” George Crile Sr.,M.D., Founder of the Cleveland clinic (1864-1943) “ Future medicine will be based on controlled energy fields.” Prof. William Tiller, Ph.D. (Stanford University)
How are you different than the person beside you? Our internal cellular structures are identical. The difference is the membrane surrounding each cell. The membrane reacts to chemicals in our bodies. Chemicals are secreted based on emotional states. Those chemicals exert an effect on our cells and determine whether the genes we ALL carry for diseases will be expressed or NOT!
Stress-induced immune dysregulation: implications for wound healing, infectious disease and cancer. Godbout JP , Glaser R . Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA. Abstract The communication between the central nervous system and the immune system occurs via a complex network of bidirectional signals linking the nervous, endocrine and immune systems. The field of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) has provided new insights to help understand the pathophysiological processes that are linked to the immune system. Work in this field has established that psychological stress disrupts the functional interaction between the nervous and immune systems . Stress-induced immune dysregulation has been shown to be significant enough to result in health consequences, including reducing the immune response to vaccines, slowing wound healing, reactivating latent herpes viruses, such as Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), and enhancing the risk for more severe infectious disease. Chronic stress/depression can increase the peripheral production of proinflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin (IL)-6. High serum levels of IL-6 have been linked to risks for several conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, mental health complications, and some cancers. This overview will discuss the evidence that psychological stress promotes immune dysfunction that negatively impacts human health.
What is the Emotional Freedom Technique?
Technique designed by founder Gary Craig to address emotional short circuits that prevent normal energy flow through out the body.
Based on the Eastern philosophy of acupuncture meridians.
Energy or “chi” is meant to flow freely through the meridians but sometimes becomes blocked causing an energetic “short circuit”

The colors represent the ratio of brain frequencies (alpha, beta, and theta waves) and sub-frequencies within given areas of the brain.

How does releasing stuck emotions affect healing?
Allows energy (chi) to flow properly throughout all the channels in our body.
Prevents neuropeptides released by negative emotions from causing negative cellular reactions i.e. gene expression, muscle tightness and stiffness (headache, backache), hormonal imbalances, addictions, lowered digestion, mood swings…the list goes on and on.
Allows freedom from traumatic memories, anxiety or grief and gives one a sense of peace in regards to past events as well as current circumstances.
