Are you giving too much to others and have nothing left for yourself?

  • Do you go into isolation just to escape from the world and all the demands?
  • Do you find yourself burnt out, having nothing left to give to anyone?
  • Is food becoming a “go to” ?

You could be a therapist, social worker, or special education teacher. Maybe even a physician, nurse or clergy. Or you could be a loving family member, a daughter or a son. What we all have in common is“compassion fatigue” ~ When we start neglecting our own care and needs, caring for those who are sick becomes overwhelming.

It doesn’t have to be that way anymore. You don’t have to suffer in silence.

Excess weight and belly size is often produced by the stress hormone cortisol.  balanceandpower-logo-sized (1)

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) lowers the major stress hormone cortisol significantly more than other interventions tested in recent scientific studies. The human body is designed to release cortisol only at times of physical danger, to help the body mobilize to fight or flee from that threat. The level of cortisol and other adrenal hormones such as adrenaline are supposed to subside when the danger passes. The human body is not meant to live in a constant deluge of cortisol and adrenaline. Unfortunately, that is exactly what is happening to many people in today’s stressful world. Most are not responding to physical danger but to traffic, work worries, financial problems, and the myriad other stresses of modern life. Continually elevated cortisol levels are known to contribute to a range of physical and psychological problems, including fatigue, weakened immunity, anxiety, depression, digestive and metabolic problems, obesity, and even diseases such as diabetes, Cushing’s syndrome, and cardiovascular disease.

EFT is a noninvasive technique that pairs the recall of emotional upsets (a form of exposure therapy, a common method in psychology) with physical stimulation of specific points on the body to discharge stress (as identified by thousands of years of use in acupuncture). The physiological mechanisms of action of EFT have been documented in a number of studies and review articles. These demonstrate that EFT affects several of the body’s regulatory systems, including the brain and endocrine systems.

Unlike various drugs and supplements touted to lower cortisol, EFT has no side effects. And unlike the “cortisol blockers” that have flooded the market as the negative effects of elevated cortisol have become more widely known, EFT does not strip the body of cortisol’s precursor molecules, which are used for cell repair when we are in a relaxed state.  I have 100% success rate working with clients for weight and impulse eating control using EFT in addition them having accountability for diet and lifestyle.  Find out more http://www.balanceandpower.com/eft.php

Here in the Northeastern US we’ve been literally bombarded with severe weather.  Many are “stuck in” more than usual and take to the munchies or simply give in to cravings that may not surface while being out and about.  And then there are those who chase the food cravings no matter what the weather. This Valentine’s Day, before Zumba class at my gym today the instructor lovingly handed us each of us a chocolate kiss.  Someone refused it – and confided in me that if she has one now then afterwards she will go to the store and buy a candy bar.  Later we had a conversation re EFT Eliminating Emotional Eating.  I’ll be guiding her with this starting this week.

I participated in EFT trainings  with a professional colleague – an eating disorder therapist – who later successfully ran support groups weekly with this modality. I had co-facilitated programs with her: “Breathing, Not Eating” re mindful breathing in front of the fridge or cupboard before opening and movement release – affirmations sessions with my audio program Moving Meditation® Fitness: A Fitness and Relaxation Program More Information 

Currently, I’ve helped many clients overcome eating challenges, especially emotional eating.

From Dr. Bruce Kesten, DC.: “Tapping each day keeps the binges away!.”  Find out more about EFT HERE

We hear so much about food and exercise, but what about the massive affect that the overproduction of cortisol, known as the “stress hormone,” has on the body?  Emotions such as anger, fear, resentment, and guilt sabotage our best intentions and even impact us on a deep biological level.  As the Mayo Clinic says, “The long-term activation of the stress-response system – and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones – can disrupt almost all your body’s processes. This puts you at increased risk of numerous health problems, including weight gain.”

By using this incredible tool – Tapping – to clear stress and limiting emotions and beliefs, you can very quickly get in touch with what you and your body need, lose weight quickly and feel energized and terrific!!
