Research Backs the Use of EFT for Depression

REMINDER: In The Archive is all of the articles that I
have posted since I started this blog. There is TONS OF
INFORMATION there for you to learn from. It's the type
of information that not only saved my life...It also has
given me a better quality of life.

    I have been a fan of energy psychology for many years, having
witnessed its effectiveness in my medical practice and in my own
personal life. However, studies have been few and far between as
science has been trying to catch up with clinical experience. That
has finally started to change. Several studies have been published
in the last few years, showing just how safe and effective EFT really
is. For example, the following three studies show remarkable progress
in a very short amount of time for people with a history of trauma:

        A 2009 study of 16 institutionalized adolescent boys with
histories of physical or psychological abuse showed substantially
decreased intensity of traumatic memories after just ONE session of
        An EFT study involving 30 moderately to severely depressed
college students was conducted. The depressed students were given
four 90-minute EFT sessions. Students who received EFT showed
significantly less depression than the control group when evaluated
three weeks later.

        In a study of 100 veterans with severe PTSD (Iraq Vets
Stress Project), after just six one-hour EFT sessions, 90 percent
of the veterans had such a reduction in symptoms that they no longer
met the clinical criteria for PTSD; 60 percent no longer met PTSD
criteria after only three EFT sessions. At the three-month follow-up,
the gains remained stable, suggesting lasting and potentially
permanent resolution of the problem.

Red Flags: Is Someone You Know Suicidal?

    If someone close to you has recently endured a hardship, or you
have noticed a change in their behavior, how can you tell when ordinary
stress or sadness has progressed to a potentially suicidal level?
Besides straightforward or "sideways" comments about not wanting to
live any longer, some of the red flags that a person has a high risk
for self-harm include:

          Acquiring a weapon    

          Hoarding medication    

          No plan for the future

          Putting affairs in order    

          Making or changing a will    

          Giving away personal belongings

          Mending grievances    

          Checking on insurance policies    

           Withdrawing from people

    If you think someone is suicidal, do not leave him or her alone.
Most suicide attempts are expressions of extreme distress, not harmless
bids for attention. A person who appears suicidal needs immediate
professional help. Help the person to seek immediate assistance
from their doctor or the nearest hospital emergency room, or call 911.
Eliminate access to firearms or other potential suicide aids, including
unsupervised access to medications.

Are You, or Someone You Know Currently Struggling With 
Depression or Feeling Suicidal?

    If you are feeling desperate or have any thoughts of suicide, call
the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, a toll-free number 1-800-273-
TALK (8255), or call 911, or simply go to your nearest Hospital Emergency

    I know firsthand that depression and suicide is devastating. It
takes a toll on the healthiest of families and can destroy lifelong
friendships. Few things are harder in life than losing someone you love,
especially to suicide.

    It's impossible to impart the will to live to somebody who no longer
possesses it. No amount of logic, reasoning, or reminders about all they
have to live for will put a smile back on the face of a loved one who is
seriously contemplating suicide.

    If you are currently the one struggling in a dark place, realize
that oftentimes you cannot change your circumstances. You can, however,
change your response to them. I encourage you to be balanced in your
life. Don't ignore your body's warning signs that something needs to
change. Sometimes people are so busy taking care of everybody else that
they lose sight of taking care of themselves. Know that it’s okay to take
care of yourself. Putting yourself last is a serious mistake, as you need
to find ways to refill and replenish your own energy stores or else
you’ll eventually burn out.

    There really are no easy answers especially when the troubles are
related to crumbling finances, joblessness, or tumultuous family and
living situations. So many seem to be suffering these days; emotional
and mental pain really is epidemic. Knowing that others are suffering
as well can be helpful to a degree, but overall, it may only add to the
sum total of ones misery and adding to the feeling that there’s no hope...
One of the most effective ways of being supportive is perhaps to simply
allow yourself to reach out and try to truly connect with the person who
is suffering—even if it’s a virtual stranger. Sometimes, having someone
look you in the eye and asking you how you are, and really meaning it,
can be the lifeline needed in that moment.
