Emotional Freedom Technique – EFT 

I am certainly not the typical role model – the college educated, good job, never-done-a-thing-wrong type a person. No, my life has been a bit more twisted and a lot more interesting! My journey has been one of extremes. I found out through healing my own pain that to change something you have to change yourself first.
~ Kai Ashley

Who is Kai Ashley? Notes From Street Recovery 

Editor’s Note: Skeptics fasten your seat belts – because Kai Ashley will challenge your thoughts about self-improvement and self-discovery.  Quite honestly she at first sounds altogether over the edge with an EFT technique that’s as mysterious and disarming as EMDR but nevertheless works quite predictably for many biomedically-based treatment-refractory conditions. See the links below for references to Harvard research and articles that compare EMDR with EFT. Note the many references to PTSD, veterans health, addiction and even fibromyalgia. We should know about this tool, whatever our preoccupations with exactly how it works.

Kai’s Story Of Trauma – Client Turned Coach

Originally from Australia, Kia is an expert in energy healing practices that powerfully reprogram the subconscious. In her work, she uses EFT and has developed a method that rapidly releases trauma trapped in the body for a lifetime, while permanently changing a person’s thoughts and perspectives about themselves. It is very powerful and efficient work.

I had a lot to heal from. My early years were spent in a drug house with abusive, drug addicted parents. Fortunately, my grandparents took me away to live with them, but there was a lot of loneliness, resentment, unhappiness and low levels of abuse in the family. I was teased every day at school and developed chronic social anxiety – I was terrified of people. I had PTSD and was extremely reactive. I was always incredibly wild and would follow my own heart, which can be a strength but because I had no direction it got me into a lot of trouble.

It was at 22 years old that I had a full-on epiphany about the person I was – deceitful and incredibly mean – and I saw that my life would amount to nothing. Then began my journey into morality, increased self-awareness and personal responsibility. I became sober for almost 4 years and practiced Buddhism and meditation during those years. Rather than my life getting better, it descended into chronic fatigue without direction.

The doctors told me I would be sick forever and so I went home and healed myself within 6 months. I now know how to continue to move myself and others forward. But then was before I even knew what healing really was.

What Is EFT?

EFT means “Emotional Freedom Techniques” and is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to a variety of disease states . Clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress.

Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing.[1]

EFT Research

EFT research includes investigators affiliated with many different institutions.

In the US, these range from Harvard Medical School, to the University of California at Berkeley, to City University of New York, to Walter Reed Military Medical Center, to Texas A&M University, to JFK University. Institutions in other countries whose faculty have contributed to EFT research include Staffordshire University (United Kingdom), Lund University (Sweden), Ankara University (Turkey), Santo Tomas University (Philippines), Lister Hospital (England), Cesar Vallejo University (Peru), Bond University (Australia) and Griffith University (Australia).

The wide variety of institutions, peer-reviewed journals, investigators, and settings that have, in independent research, found EFT to be efficacious, are one indication of the breadth of existing research results.

The next frontier of EFT research is replication of the studies that have not yet been replicated, and investigations into the physiological changes that occur during EFT, using such tools as gene expression analysis, MEGs (magnetoencephalograms), fMRIs, and neurotransmitter and hormone assays.[1]

  • Interesting, Important and helpful
    April 28, 2018 by J.M.I from Sweden

    I am listening in from Sweden, and I learn so much from Dr Parker and his interesting guests. Sadly, information like this is hard to find amongst practitioners here, and underlying factors to symptoms are of little interest. I am thankful to Dr Parker dedicating time in spreading word about helping people with psycological dysfunctions from a non conventional angle. Thank you!

  • Core Brain Journal--Neuropsychology
    May 25, 2017 by Dr Terry James Gingras from United States

    Just finished session 118 with neuropsychologist, Dr. Braun. Excellent content presented in a relaxed style. I'm a neuropsychoogist with a specialization In ADHD so I appreciate both Dr. Parker's and Dr. Braun's efforts demystifying the practice of neuropsychology.

  • Exceptional interviews !!
    May 16, 2017 by MCVGRL from United States

    Core Brain Journal, with Dr. Charles Parker is a must listen for a wide audience. If you are either the individual, suffering from complex personal medical/ psychological issues; or a family member, friend... please tune in often.

  • Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!
    April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States

    I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!

  • Top quality information
    February 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland

    As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information

  • Fascinating
    February 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States

    If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.

  • My Brain Thanks You!
    January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States

    Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!

  • Flipping Junkie Review
    December 23, 2016 by Danny Johnson -Flipping Junkie from United States

  • “How I Found Myself” Dean Roberts
    December 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States

    I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
