Hey Sebastiaan,Yes, I did.
And with amazing success. I use this as my main tool in coaching people to overcome their social phobia.
I have cured my own remnants of social anxiety with it and have successfully helped people to overcome their social anxiety.
It does come with some "if's" and "but's"...
You can read about it here:
EFT Therapy To Clear My Social Phobia?
But EFT is the real deal and I can't recommend it highly enough. And for people being curious, "NO, it's not a placebo and you don't have to believe in it for it to work".
It's awesome, go and experience it for yourself!
heh, maybe scientists should be more concerned with the mechanisms of placebo rather than of ssris, which IMO, is a placebo with side effects.Testing of the EFT hypothesis through the use of a placebo group produced the same positive changes in recipients as following the EFT's standard methodology. A 2007 article in the Guardian suggested that the act of tapping parts of the body in a complicated sequence acts as a distraction, and therefore can appear to alleviate the root distress.
Huh? Did you confront someone? I did and I spent 2 years locked up in a psych hospital.I put my trust in cognitive therapy. My anxiety derived from painful memories and experiences. I felt isolated and confused. CBT took me from a point of intense anger at the people who made me feel this way(to the point where I actually found out their personal details in an effort to confront them lol)\.
Not that I agree with you but let's say that IS true. Does it really matter why or how something works? What's important in what you said is the "make you feel better" part. IMHOIt's the placebo effect. If you believe in it, it'll make you feel better, Like homeopathy and prayer.
Yes it does matter! Why?Not that I agree with you but let's say that IS true. Does it really matter why or how something works? What's important in what you said is the "make you feel better" part. IMHO
Do people actually research before posting opinions? The problem with opinions like these is that they drive people who need the treatment towards alternative options, which are built on shaky grounds at best, quakery at worst. SSRIs work better than a placebo. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SertralineIMO, is a placebo with side effects
And again, I'll say, if "it'll make you feel better" who cares who it makes rich or why it works as long as nobody is harmed. Negativism hinders people who preach it and people who listen to it. There's no reason to discourage someone else from trying something because YOU don't believe it works. And besides, what doesn't work for you might work for someone else perhaps only because they had the audacity to believe in it.It's the placebo effect. If you believe in it, it'll make you feel better, Like homeopathy and prayer.
