Where could skeptics read about these test and study results and were they conducted by credentialed experts in the field?

Study results and more on the testing and research into EFT can be found at www.stressproject.org The Iraq Vets Stress Project is a partner and ally in our project. Dr. Dawson Church headed up the research. Viewers can hear from many other PhDs in psychology, psychiatry and medicine in my film.


Let's move beyond American veterans for a moment, Eric. EFT has many practitioners throughout the world. You've documented its use with survivors in Rwanda and at a pediatric cancer ward in Mexico, among other places. Can you tell us what you saw there?

In any of the locations around the world where I've documented the use of EP (energy psychology), what stands out is how quickly and completely trauma and PTSD, fear and anxiety are converted when the subject is open to working on their issues. Whether it's a child undergoing chemotherapy, or a genocide survivor who witnessed the death of his/her family people only improve and recover when they go through these steps - acceptance, forgiveness and a willingness to bring love into their hearts and lives. EP makes acceptance and forgiveness possible by opening doorways into the blocked energies that are keeping the negatives feelings alive.

This can sound too simple, impossible or airy-fairy to skeptics. Believe what you will. I am not a therapist and I have no bias to believe in or to promote energy psychology other than for the same reason that noted therapists and PhD researchers have for acknowledging it it works! It's really that simple, plus we now have scientifically valid research that measured and proves that the body reacts and changes as a result of energy therapy. Changes that drug therapy tries to instill, but without the affirmative parts of EP - the specifically focused wording and affirmations, it can't.

What I've tried to illustrate in OPERATION: Emotional freedom The Answer is that emotional or physical issues reside in the energetic part of the body, not in something that can be drugged, operated on, or simply talked away. It's why so many conditions fail to respond well, or fail to remain in remission through medical interventions. Acceptance of life, compassion and forgiveness for everyone and every thing that occurs, and a true willingness to see life through a loving intention are not just good spiritual practices, they turn out to be good medicine. Energy medicine and energy psychology use those affirmations and beliefs as the foundation for converting negative energy into a more balanced, or "unblocked" state. Once there, the body takes over and can self-heal, or respond better to complementary techniques to complete the job.

Young children terrified and in pain from cancer therapy become calm, open-minded and prepared to receive other healing forms when EFT or other techniques access and change their energetic blocks. Rwandan teens who carries the deaths of their family in their hearts and a hatred for some "enemy" perpetrator cannot ever really heal from that pain and hatred and the side effects they cause things like depression, sleeplessness, nightmares and other physical issues, until that negative energy is converted into acceptance and forgiveness.

What enables EP to work is that it affects both the mind and the energetic body to do what prayer, or touch therapy or talk therapy or medications cannot do on their own. The combination seems to be the answer and EP subjects can sometimes change and heal to a great extent before our eyes. That is what OPERATION: Emotional Freedom and my other films on Rwandan orphans and the cancer patients in Mexico documented so often a profound emotional or physical change occurs when the energetic body is brought into calm and balance.


That's impressive. Let's pause here. Eric will tell us more about EFT and the positive changes they've seen in the second half of our interview. I hope you'll join us.
