Excess body weight is a biggest concern. People try every other way to reduce weight. They diet, exercise and even go for weight loss treatments! The point is, ‘how fast’ and ‘how successful’ was those techniques or treatments?
Well, if you are planning for weight reduction, we are here to suggest you something which is simple and fast.
What Is The EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)?
The EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique is basically a type of painless ‘psychological acupressure’ therapy. Here, the emotional health is optimized for boosting self-preventive powers and attaining ideal healing, thereby achieving the utmost physical health and well-being.
EFT is based on the theory of electromagnetic energy, which flows all through our body and plays a crucial role in taking control over our health. In spite of being a part of the traditional acupuncture therapy, it employs simple ‘tapping with fingertips’ and ‘voicing positive affirmations’. These, in combination, can eliminate our ‘emotional block’ and make the bio-energy system of our body clear, which eventually creates a physical and mental balance.
Who Can Opt For EFT?
The EFT can be the perfect way to shake off the excess fat as well as maintain a healthy weight for emotional eaters. If you end up eating even when you are not feeling hungry, it is because of your strong ‘emotional pull’, which you just can’t ignore. This emotional trigger can interrupt all your efforts of losing weight.
EFT can address all those causes lying behind these emotional triggers including genetic obesity, stress, anxiety, tension, fear, loneliness, sadness, nervousness, boredom, social uncomfortability, sense of getting rewarded, lack of self-confidence and self-belief, etc. As a result, your cravings for ‘unhealthy foods’ is controlled, and you stay away from ‘mindless’ eating.
How Does EFT Work For Weight Loss?
At first, a goal is set to turn the consistent thoughts of the overweight patients into the reality. It helps in conditioning their entire mental system, thereby averting their urges of eating every now and then. The procedure can be divided into two parts.
1. Tapping With Fingertips:
It is important to know the perfect tapping locations and the proper technique of tapping in order to make the most of your efforts. The aim is to tap into the ‘energy meridians’ of the body with fingertips. You may follow the conventional approach of using ‘one hand and two fingers (tips of the index and middle finger)’ for this purpose. Make sure that you tap firmly without causing harm to yourself. Also, remove your watch and your spectacles, if you are wearing, before starting the procedure as these may interfere with your ‘emotional freedom’. There is no need to be highly precise. Finishing a single round within a minute is absolutely alright.
The most effective tapping points in our body include (listed in the order they should be tapped):
- TH – Top of the Head
- EB – Eyebrow
- SE – Side of the Eye
- UE – Under the Eye
- UN – Under the Nose
- Ch – Chin
- CB – Collar Bone
- UA – Under the Arm
- WR – Wrists
2. Voicing Positive Affirmations:
Uttering positive thoughts will speed up the results of the tapping treatment and eliminate the ‘emotional block’ in a more efficient manner. You may opt for any of the traditional EFT phrases or modify them as per your goal and comfort. Ensure that none of your phrases reflect any sort of negative emotion, else you would not be able to get the results.
When Should EFT Be Performed?
Well, there is no specific time to do the EFT for losing weight effectively. You can perform it anytime. You can do this prior to taking each of your meals, whenever you go to the washroom, when waiting at the signals on the way to your office, or even at night when going to the bed. I do EFT in the morning.
What Are The Benefits Of The EFT?
EFT can limit our emotional crutch and prevent us from overeating. In case you need a clear idea about how this breakthrough energy therapy can actually be beneficial for weight loss, here it goes:
- It works on the ‘causes’ of the problem and regulate them efficiently instead of just treating the ‘effects’.
- It eliminates all sorts of negative thoughts and emotions from our mind.
- It helps us think in positive ways, which is essential to reach the weight loss goals.
- It is an extremely simple procedure that can be learnt without putting much effort.
- It can be practiced anytime and anywhere.
- You can experience the changes in your eating behaviour almost instantly, which is quite surprising.
