Smokers lung is not nice. Now that I have removed probably all the emotional and most of the environmental influences that were stuck in my body, I felt last week that it was time to try the Buteyko breathing technique, used successfully for many asthmatics, with proven results in its country of origin, even for emphysema. With a twist – EFT for speedier results. I bought “Close Your Mouth” from Amazon.com and started using it straight away with EFT. EFT removes the emotional element of discomfort whilst doing the exercises. EFT also helped me with the resistance to taping my mouth at night. Fears that it was not attractive (my partner loved the peace, actually) were the worst, and tapping them out with EFT helped with any remaining distress from all those would-be partners when I first got ill that deserted me once they saw me cough blood in the morning. Not that I blame them. I just tapped silently on all the points while I was doing the exercises or about to or just after taping my mouth.There is a measure of progress in the Buteyko method called Control Pause. This is roughly the length of time you can go without a breath. 5 seconds is the danger threshold, below which you are at risk of death, at 40 you are at the bottom of the Good Health bracket, 30 is still in the Poor Health bracket. Mine was 5-10 on the first day. Last night, noticing that progress consisted mainly of a halving of my meds in one week and consistently having a Control Pause of up to 12 seconds, I tapped as follows:
Setup:”Even though I manage to remove the mouth tape in my sleep and wake up mouth-breathing, I deeply love and accept myself, I choose to awaken and close my mouth whenever this happens”
“Even though progress is slow, I deeply love and accept myself”
“Even though my poor left lung and the scar on it are unhappy first thing in the morning, I deeply love and accept myself”
“Even though first thing this morning my control Pause was 5 till I coughed my left lung’s goo, I deeply love and accept myself, I ask for healing for the scar in my left lung, I allow it to heal””
Even though this won’t work, I deeply love and accept myself”
“Even though I need a Control Pause of over 10 first thing in the morning, I deeply love and accept myself”
Reminder:”CP over 10 first thing in the morning”
I fell asleep before finishing the round of EFT tapping. I woke up as soon as the tape started to come off, at 3:52 AM, and kept waking up whenever I had my mouth open to close it. A strong cup of tea is keeping me up this morning – no, I am not a tap fanatic, sometimes a cup of tea is nice!
My Control Pause first thing this morning was 12.
My left lung was a bit gooey but not really congested.
When you have a chronic physical condition, anything that either emotionally or physically has a negative impact on you can make the condition worse. EFT is one way of throwing away the emotional rubbish collecting in your system. In the same way that we dispose of our household rubbish regularly for home cleanliness and hygiene, I use EFT to dispose of negative emotions for my optimal physical health.— EFT with Me, Suzanne Zacharia, Practitioner —— Learn Buteyko Breathing for Asthma or COPD With This Easy Book —— —-Disclaimer – You are advised to consult with your medical practitioner before embarking on any course of alternative, complementary, or beauty therapy.
