EFT  is Emotional Freedom Technique.

I’d been introduced to it in the past and from my point of view it made perfect sense; EFT works with the electromagnetic energy that flows through the body and regulates our health.

EFT works by the same electromagnetic field that shows up on an electrocardiogram and an electroencephalogram is the same one that shows the electrical activity of the heart and brain.

Here is a snippet of an article from Dr. Mercola that touches on what EFT is and and how it can be used:

“. . . you can powerfully and permanently chase away anxiety, insecurity, sorrow and even physical pain in just seven easy steps…and lead a fruitful and successful life!”

What Are People Saying About EFT?

What really inspired me to write this new post about it however, was response I got from a forum for gout treatment. This reply from “Orca” made me decide to make a concerted effort in learning and understanding EFT.

Here is a little bit of what she wrote:

“With gout, I recently saw someone with lots of pain in the toe. We were able to bring some of it down somewhat in intensity. Not completely, but better. There were some emotional things going on that, at first, didn’t seem related to the gout, but tapping on those things did help the pain. The next session would probably be to help with changing what he was eating, since he was really fighting with himself on that issue…”

This is a particularly important reference to make; under the readily available information we all are immersed in, we rarely look beyond that body of knowledge to see what other possibilities there are.

Typically we identify the cause of the gout pain to be nothing more than high levels of uric acid, take a pill, and dismiss it due to the over consumption of high purine foods. My experience and research tells me otherwise.

    Remember!  EFT is something to think about for your gout.


Bert Middleton

“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good!  And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.” Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life. Prescription drugs were of limited help… And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible. Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain.  And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.

Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now. Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle. Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours. And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD! So you can finally start LIVING again!
