I wanted to tell you about how I healed myself from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with EFT. Over nine years ago, my doctor diagnosed me with PCOS; they told me that there was no cure and that I would have to take medication for it for the rest of my life. I was also told that I would probably never be able to have a normal period or a child. PCOS is a very difficult thing to live with and the doctors have no idea what causes it or how to treat it. The symptoms of PCOS are: infertility, cystic acne, insulin resistance, obesity, hair thinning, hyper-pigmented skin, and irregular periods.
I suffered from the irregular periods, difficulty losing weight, hyper-pigmentation, and severe cystic acne. I felt trapped, powerless, and frustrated, but something inside of me told me that I could heal from this. I spent over five years looking for a cure. I changed my diet and my lifestyle. I tried vitamin supplements and the medications they gave me, but nothing worked. I spent thousands of dollars looking for something that would help! I also tried several other alternative therapies with little or no luck.
Then I stumbled upon EFT! After a year of doing EFT, and working with several different EFT practitioners, I cleared a lot. I then began to address the little girl inside of me, the shame she felt, about not being good enough for her parents. I also addressed the guilt about not being a boy and the rejection of my female parts.
I addressed specific memories of my sister telling me that nobody loved me—not even my parents—because I was supposed to be a boy. I also addressed the painful memory of my parents trying to adopt a (boy) foster child and the shameful memory I had when I started my period at the age of 11.
Here are a few generalized Setup phrases I used, which may be helpful to you or your clients:
Even though all I ever wanted was their approval, I love and accept myself and I have decided to love and accept me regardless of how they see me.
Even though I have rejected my parts, I love, accept, and forgive myself.
Even though I don't look the way my parents wanted...
Even though I am not a boy, I am still lovable.
Even though I have these girl parts, I love and accept everything about my body.
Even though I can't be a boy...
Even though they might not approve of me, I love and accept my female parts and I choose to send them love.
There was a lot that came up when I was tapping, so I addressed every specific memory and feeling that I could find that surrounded the subject. After several self-administered sessions and many tears, I realized there was no wonder that my body had developed these cysts. Since then, I have gotten my female issues under control, I lost the weight, I do not have any more cystic acne, and the hyper-pigmented skin and the PCOS is gone.
I am now helping others heal their issues with EFT because I believe that it is the most wonderful and powerful tool I have ever used. I believe that some of us go through so much pain and when we find the strength to go inside and heal it, it really enables us to help others heal as well. I wish everyone the best on their healing journey!
