Universal EFT (UEFT) therapy, Medication and Anxiety

Alternative therapies, Universal EFT (UEFT) therapy and Medication for Anxiety

The Universal Emotional Freedom Technique (UEFT) energy-medicine based therapy, requires no lengthy tapping points or lengthy tapping charts to memorise. This simplified EFT therapy may offer an alternative to medication for anxiety, due to the difficulty when seeking an effective medication for anxiety for there is a fundamental lack of a coherent pathophysiology and aetiology for common anxiety disorders, according to a Shradha Bisht et al., in their article titled “Anxiety - A Treatment by Herbal Approach: A Review” published in Guru Drone Journal of Pharmacy and Research (Oct-Dec 2013;1(1): 7-12).

Medications for anxiety are being dispensed because there is a ver high need for it, despite this limitation. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) in their ABS National Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing 2007, Summary of Results (cat.no. 4326.0) in an old study from 2007, anxiety disorders, affected 14% of all people aged 16-85 years, and it was reported to be the most common mental disorders reported in the 12 months prior to the ABS interview. With such a high number of the population being affected by anxiety, you can see the need for medication for anxiety or the alternative. The ABS Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing (discussed above), defined anxiety disorders to generally involve:

  • Feelings of tension
  • Distress
  • Nervousness

The ABS survey also stated that specific anxiety, such as panic disorders, agoraphobia and generalised anxiety disorders, have some common symptoms, such as a:

  • Pounding heart
  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Shaking
  • Difficulties with breathing

Of all the anxiety disorders, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) was the most common for both males and females according to this ABS survey.

Although it is argued that finding effective medication for anxiety is limited by a fundamental lack of a coherent pathophysiology and aetiology, it may also be possible that our understanding of emotions needs to be revisited and reassessed as another way of addressing emotional issues such as anxiety. In the book, "The Eternal Warrior/Worrier Smile" (TEWS) by Rhett Ogston, it's discussed that emotions act as a guidance system and a personal boundary indicator rather than seeing them as something positive or negative. The authors training as a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine has influenced the understanding around emotions and health, where it does become evident that emotions and their role in dis-ease and pathophysiology need to be rethought.

More of these concepts are explained in books "Pro·m·emo: The art of processing emotions to achieve emotional mastery" and "The Eternal Warriors Smile"


These alternative healing methods do not focus on the symptoms caused by the emotions, but rather they focus the treatment for the actual emotion, and specifically on processing the emotion, and habits leading to the anxiety. It is the processing of emotions that has the potential to be a new paradigm and the key to addressing emotional disharmonies, such as anxiety disorders. When we are unable to effectively process our emotions we inevitably get ‘stuck’ in the emotion, thereby creating emotional overwhelm and distress. If emotions, such as anxiety, are not processed and therefore become and remain ‘stuck’, then our emotional health and wellbeing suffers. The longer that an emotion remains unprocessed (stuck), the greater the likelihood that you may need to search out a professional intervention, which may involve, for example, seeking medications for anxiety. This treatment pathway certainly matches the current anxiety treatment protocol as outlined by Beyond Blue. They rate anxiety as being experienced as either mild, moderate and severe. Mild symptoms, they suggest may be relieved with lifestyle changes (e.g. regular physical exercise) and self-help (e.g. online e-therapies for example Universal Emotional Freedom Technique www.ueft.com.au). However, when symptoms of anxiety are moderate to severe, then psychological and/or medical treatments are likely to be required.


The adage "prevention is better than cure" is an adage we certainly subscribe to and emotional health and wellbeing are no different. If you reconsider emotions as being your guidance system, then you will see that your ‘guidance system’ needs to be maintained in order to be able to continually process the emotions that we experience all day, every day. Maintaining your ‘guidance system’ ensures that you continue to function and process emotions effectively thereby preventing emotions becoming ‘stuck’. If emotions do not get stuck, then you and your emotional health and wellbeing are in flow and the need for medication for anxiety, as an example, may not be required.

This is one of the concepts that form part of the new paradigm in the Rhett Ogston Applications health technologies. For example, Universal Emotional Freedom technique and the pro·m·emo essence range, for they aim to assist in any given emotional situation to keep you and your  ‘guidance system’ functioning effectively, so that you can process any emotion. In this way, you reduce the likelihood of your emotions becoming ‘stuck’ thereby reducing the need, in having to use, for example, medications for anxiety.


As the focus of this article is on anxiety, the pro·m·emo natural essence that may assist you to process the emotion of anxiety, worry and overthinking is ‘CAREFREE’.

Although, how the pro·m·emo essence work has been described in more detail in the book "Pro·m·emo: The art of processing emotions to achieve emotional mastery" it is important to understand that each pro·m·emo essence has been researched and developed to contain specifically chosen natural ingredients that have the capacity to process emotions based on the Five element theory from traditional Chinese medicine and the five pure emotions.


Having alternative tools to help you prevent emotions from getting ‘stuck’ by using the pro·m·emo essence range or UEFT therapy creates a new paradigm for emotional health and wellness, which may offer a potential to reduce the need for medication for anxiety and other emotional treatments.


To illustrate how the pro·m·emo essences may assist the processing of emotions with the potential of preventing anxiety occurring in the first place, which may reduce, if not become the alternative, to medication for anxiety, I present a testimonial as reported by Miss B who rose above her drug addiction to ice and her associated emotional reactions, including anxiety and depression.


A Natural Solution for Anxiety and Addictions

Testimonial from Miss B, 31, Melbourne 

“I have been consumed by my drug addiction for 18 years. During that time I think the longest that I ever restrained myself from using was 6 months, though every day I was faced with the struggle of fighting that little monster inside me that was always present, niggling away at me in the very back of my mind everyday.


6 weeks ago I went to my dear friend, who introduced me to his development promemo, I also had a FlameTree session done that night. I'd text him earlier that day saying I was broken, he knew exactly what I meant. Emotionally, physically spent from the abuse I'd done to my self through constant drug use. Leading up to this time, every single week I'd say to myself, I'm not going to do it this week. So come Wednesday night I'd already be talking myself out of it. The last few Friday nights leading up to the time I was introduced to promemo treatment, I would literally find myself arguing with what ever it was inside of me that obviously had stronger willpower than I. I could physically feel the left side of my brain winning the argument, when I couldn't take the depression I'd slump into all because I was refusing to use anymore I'd crack and succumb to my monster.


I started promemo Wednesday night at the session. The following morning I woke up, still feeling like a dusty old rag but endeavoured to give this stuff a try. I was advised to take drops as required, of course I didn't read the instructions, as per the emotion I was experiencing and by using the website to deduce which of the promemo bottles I should use at the time. I began by using each bottle as per whatever emotion I was going through at that time, for example I’d take the one for anger which would fix the anger but within minutes I’d be feeling sad, so I would take the bottle for sad, then I felt disappointed etc etc, I understood this is exactly what was meant to happen and the reason why you buy the whole set and not just one promemo, but I was struggling with being overwhelmed and chose to take only the peace because I was sending myself on an emotional roller coaster and ended up having to take them all anyway lol.

So, here I am coming off the drugs at my extremely stressful new job fighting with my boyfriend at every other moment thinking there's no way I'm going to be able to get through this. I had been at work for barely an hour before my lovely boss had torn shreds off me and rather than explode or crumble into a heap like I felt I wanted to, I had a dropper of "peace" (I really think the full dropper full helped me too, as opposed to 5 drops, maybe because of all the chemicals I've put into me over the years, maybe I needed that extra hit lol) within moments I was calm barely having to deal with what I was going through right then. I was pretty impressed to say the least! I maybe had to use one of the other elixir’s once that day but all in all this was a much more pleasant experience than when I'd attempted this battle on my own ever before.


The following morning before leaving for work, I thought to myself “I’m going to beat the monster to it today, I’ll have a dropper of peace even before I get to the battle field!” By doing this, I completely avoided the usual melt down I'd go through as like every other morning and made it through today reasonably unscathed. Of course this being a Friday, I was about to take on my usual Friday night argument with myself even before leaving work, but this time was different. Just before I finished work, I had a dropper of peace to once again avoid experiencing the emotions I knew I was going to be facing within myself. This was the first Friday night I had gotten through without giving in and scoring, although I had the fact I was working the next day which was my common saviour on a Friday night, 4pm tomorrow would be the real challenge, when I'd finish work every other Saturday I'd lead foot it to score knowing I didn't have to face reality until Monday.


Saturday morning, repeat process! Dropper of peace before leaving the house, get through the day and avoid the anticipation of scoring that I'd usually have leading up to 4pm... 3:30pm; dropper of peace! I can do this! Finished work, went home to find that little monster of mine may have actually moved out of me or at least gone away for the weekend, because I got through the entire evening without even the slightest inkling of wanting to score... I thought to myself “I think this guy might actually be on to something here”.


Sunday morning... I bounced out of bed, for the first time in forever I actually felt free! I had a dropper of peace, to avoid any of the usual depression that I'd be going through by now and took myself shopping. At this point I text my friend “I feel amazing! This is the first weekend in 6 months I haven't used and I feel great!”


I continued the treatment daily as I did at the start, full dropper of peace in the morning after my cup of tea and gladly headed out to take on the day. Two weeks into it, I was at the point where I felt at ease within myself that I didn't need to take any drops to get through the day, even when I put myself in a situation surrounded by drugs and people on drugs I was not fazed.


It's been 6 weeks since I started on this path of new beginnings and I've only used the drops at moments of high stress and emotion, which has probably been only a handful of times over the course of the last 4 weeks. I've found myself to be free of the little devil which had a hold on me for so long and for that I am so thankful to have been introduced to such an amazing, inspiring yet simple treatment for something I believed would have a hold of me for the rest of my life. I honestly have not had one thought of how I wanted to take drugs, and believe me, this wasn't just a recreational thing for me, I had gotten my addiction to the point where I didn't have to use every day because I knew there was more to life, but no matter how hard I tried I just could not kick it and used drugs every weekend to keep the demon at bay so I wasn't consumed by depression because I hadn't used drugs.


I hope this statement finds someone that's in that place I'd been for so long, so they can see there really is light at the end of the tunnel no matter how deep you are in, I believe promemo is a life line out of the darkness that is ice addiction.”
