   OK, I’ll admit it, in the past, I have fallen prey to the odd hangover and in my time I have discovered something about hangovers … if you have done everything suggested in my last blog post and you still feel rough, there is more to it than just physical symptoms.

And this is where EFT comes in.  “Tapping for a hangover???” I hear you exclaim in total disbelief.  Yes, tapping for a hangover.

Just think about it for a moment.  The morning after the night before, what is that little voice in your head saying to you?  “You’ve done it again you dolt!” “When will you ever learn?” “How stupid was that?”.  And how do you feel – emotionally that is – guilty, embarrassed, stupid?

If your answer is yes to any of the above (or anything similar) then EFT may help to shift those final symptoms.  If you are not familiar with EFT this link demonstrates how to use it.  Tap along with it and see how you feel afterwards.  If it only makes a little difference, then substitute your own words. For example:

  • Even though I’m feeling really fed up with myself for having too much to drink last night, I deeply and completely love, forgive and accept myself
  • Even though I say never again every time this happens and I’ve done it again and I’m really annoyed with myself, I deeply and completely love, forgive and accept myself anyway
  • Even though I’m feeling cross with myself, and guilty and annoyed and I’m fed up that I have another hangover,  I deeply and completely love, forgive and accept myself anyway
  • Feeling hungover
  • Feeling annoyed with myself
  • Feeling guilty
  • Feeling awful
  • Releasing that now
  • Allowing it to go
  • Releasing that now
  • Allowing it to go
And you never know, being kind to yourself – rather than beating yourself up – may just help you to prevent hangovers in the future.  You never know until you try.

   Last week, someone I have been working with emailed to let me know that she has been using the EFT demonstration videos on my website and has found them helpful.  I was really thrilled to know that – it’s exactly why I made them and you never know with these things whether people are going to find them useful or not.  Her kind feedback spurred me on to make another video that has been in my mind for a while – EFT for sleeping problems.  Here it is below – and if you would like to have the free information sheet with the words on (so you can do the exercise in bed), you can get it here.

   That’s exactly what I thought until last year, at Christmas when two of my family had the flu and EFT helped them feel better.

If you’re suffering from a cold or flu right now, give this a try.  Think about what the main symptom is and where in your body you are feeling it.  Then decide how intense that feeling is on a scale of 0-10, where 0 is that feeling is not there and 10 is it’s the most intense it could be.  You could also think about how having a cold or flu is making you feel – fed up, irritable, impatient, etc.  Then, go through the tapping points saying something similar to this – whatever fits your own, personal symptoms.  (If you’re not sure where the tapping points are, you can find out by watching the EFT Demo Feeling Bad here).

Tapping on your karate chop point:

  • Even though I’m feeling all bunged up and it’s really annoying, I’m OK
  • Even though I’m all bunged up and I can’t think straight and I feel really poorly, I deeply and completely love and accept myself
  • Even though I’m all bunged up and I feel really poorly and I can’t do the things I want to, I deeply and completely love and accept myself
  • (Tapping on the top of your head) Feeling all bunged up
  • (Tapping between your eyes) Really annoying
  • (Tapping at the corners of your eyes) Feeling really poorly
  • (Tapping under your eyes) So fed up
  • (Tapping under your nose) Allowing that to go now
  • (Tapping on your chin) Releasing it now
  • (Tapping on your collar bones) Allowing it to go now
  • (Tapping under one arm) Releasing it now
  • (Tapping under the other arm) Releasing it now 
Take a big breath in and out and then just check how you are feeling – on the same scale of 0-10.  If your number has gone down, but not to 0, repeat the exercise and check again.  If your number still hasn’t gone down, it may be helpful to think about the emotions connected to feeling poorly – are you worried about work, frustrated, fed up that you’re missing out on something, angry?  If you become aware that there is a strong emotion connected to the poorliness, then it may be helpful to you to do a couple of tapping rounds just on that feeling.  Use the EFT Demo Feeling Bad to tap along with.

   This is a great question Sam – thank you for asking.  As a homeopath, there are lots of questions I need to ask in response to it. Irritating, I know – answering a question with more questions!  Here’s the thing though, when I look in my book of symptoms (known to homeopaths as The Homeopathic Medical Repertory), under the symptom “Wakes at night at 3.00 am” there are 48 different medicines to choose from.  So, I need to work out which of those 48 is going to be the best one for Sam.

To begin with, I want to know how long Sam has been experiencing this problem and what was happening when it started.

Then there’s the question of how Sam wakes.  You see some people wake suddenly, or as if they’ve heard a noise, or from hunger or thirst, from dreams, heat or coldness, needing to go to the loo, or from perspiration.  For other people, the waking seems to be causeless.

After that, it’s what is keeping Sam awake?  Is it thoughts of business, anxiety, restlessness or just feeling wide awake?

Has Sam got any idea what is causing this sleep problem?  And how has Sam been feeling since the sleep problem started – more irritable than normal, weepy, or just tired?

So, before I can recommend a homeopathic medicine to help Sam with this sleep problem, I need quite a lot more information.

In the meantime, what you could try, Sam, is to drink some water when you wake up and take a tiny bit of salt – straight salt if you can bear it and, if not, a couple of crisps or something similar.  A drop of lavender on your pillow may help you to feel more relaxed and sleepy.

And then you could just do a bit of tapping.  If you don’t know about EFT you can go here and watch the demonstration on “Feeling Bad”.  Instead of saying “Even though I’m feeling like this” you can tap in the same way and say “Even though I can’t get back to sleep” as you tap on the karate chop point and then as you go through the points from the top of your head to under your eyes you can say “Can’t get back to sleep” and from under your nose to under your arms you can say “Choosing to relax now”.  Then you can go through all the points from the top of your head to under your arms alternating “Choosing to relax” and “Choosing to go back to sleep”.
