**Colds/Flus: Act fast when symptoms start

**Reflexology: Book Review


Gary Craig, founder of EFT, retiring March 1, 2010

If you are already aware of Gary Craig's retirement then I am sure you join with me and thousands of others in feeling a deep sadness at his retiring combined with a great appreciation for all that he has done in bringing EFT to the world. I already feel a great sense of loss in knowing that he won't be sending out his wonderful newsletter and contributing his valuable viewpoints. He has improved the lives of a vast number of people and that influence will continue on as others carry the information forward.

What does his retirement mean? It means that the emofree website will not be available after March 1, 2010. It means that the free EFT manual will only be available until then so get yours now if you have not done so. (It is available for purchase through Amazon ) It also means that the Training DVDs are being sold until gone with no guarantee that they will be available after March 1, 2010.

Gary has said that he is looking into the possibility of keeping the website resources up, but there is no guarantee. I sincerely hope that a way will be found, but at this point - who knows?

Tapping will continue to move forward through the hard work and wonderful resources from others. The Tapping World Summit is a personal favorite tapping resource of mine that is held only once a year. This year it starts Feb. 21st so now is the time to register.

Tapping World Summit 2010

This is a free online event that last year had over 81,000 people in attendance. I listened to several of the speakers last year and took notes like crazy. It was wonderful!

Listening to the presentations gives you an opportunity to hear many of the tapping greats share their secrets. These experts include Carol Look, Patricia Carrington, Brad Yates, Bob Doyle, Gwenn Bonnell and Carol Tuttle. There will be over 18 instructors in all with over 20 presentations...

This year the event starts on February 21st and the doors to register for this event are officially open now! Take a look here at what you will experience, at no charge to you:

Tackling Colds/Flus

I came across a post that was shared in the essential oils Yahoo group that I subscribe to that had some information that I thought would be helpful. The post is written by Vicki Opfer who has been with Young Living for many years. I have attended a class taught by her in the past and value her expertise.

What she shares is very much the same experience that I personally have had in tackling colds and flus. I learned the hard way that I needed to be very aggressive and tackle each one immediately as soon as I felt one coming on.

Here is an excerpt from that post: "In Young Living we have an amazing advantage. If we can take some Inner Defense, or cap up Thieves with oregano, at the VERY FIRST sign of a cold or flu, we can almost always stop it in its tracks. I have done this dozens of times over the years, with myself and my family.

However, if we are inconsistent, or wait too long, and we actually catch the cold or flu, and it takes hold, we have to wait it out like everyone else. We can still use oils to possibly shorten the duration slightly, or ease our symptoms, but at that point, it's too late to stop it totally. In speaking with our research department, we only have about a 24 hour period to stop a cold or a flu. If we don't do enough during that time, we can't stop it."

She also says that to just throw a couple of drops of oils back in the throat every once in a while isn't going to do the job. The oils need to be taken internally (add them to gel capsules or vegetable capsules) several times daily in order to get enough into the body. She says that if capsules are being taken consistently and then suddenly stopped after two or three days, the oils may have just been holding the flu at bay and it may start coming on again.

I have personally experienced that as well where I stopped taking supplements/oils and the cold came on again. I have an arsenal of supplements and oils on hand such as Vitamin C, Oregano oil, Thieves oil blend, Marjoram oil, Multi Greens, Inner Defense, zinc, etc. Essential oils are by no means the only great products sold by Young Living. Although not all of my supplements come from Young Living, a good share of them do as I have such great results and I know that I can depend on their quality. Most of the supplements have oils added to them which greatly multiplies the benefits.

My personal protocol, of sorts, when I feel a cold coming on is to immediately choose two things to take such as Multigreens and Inner Defense. Three to four hours later I take something different like Vitamin C and and a capsule of oil. Oftentimes, I will muscle test what my body most needs and how much of each and go with that. I continue with something every three to four hours for two or three days and then gradually taper off over another three or four days.

Book Review

I recently bought a new Reflexology book called The Reflexology Atlas. Wow, am I impressed! This book is well-written and has awesome pictures detailing the techniques.

The book covers foot, hand, ear, and head reflexology. There is a section on administering Shiatsu and another section on alleviating specific ailments. The ailments are allergies, back pain, breathing problems, digestive system problems, endocrine system disturbances, headache, heart and circulatory problems, hip joint ailments, hormonal changes, knee pain, menstrual problems, shoulder pain, sleep problems, and urinary tract ailments. This book is a fabulous resource for anyone wanting to learn more about reflexology in these particular areas.


Have a Happy Valentin'e Day!
