Use EFT to Get Rid of Heartburn and GERD Forever


By Rebecca Snyder

After overindulging at my favorite restaurant, I awoke later that night, around 2:00 a.m., with a hellacious heartburn. I went into my bathroom to find some antacid.

I was both sleepy and angry at myself for overdoing it with food and drink. I couldn’t find any antacids, and knew there was no way I was going to be able to go back to sleep with my stomache churning like it was. Then I suddenly I thought about trying to tap the heartburn away with emotional freedom techniques.

I started by rating my heartburn discomfort at a SUD intensity level number of 9 on the 0-10 scale.

I did several tapping rounds on:

Even though I’m mad at myself for eating too much of that rich food, I deeply and completely forgive myself.

Reminder phrase:

I’m so mad at myself!

My SUD Level of Intensity on my heartburn went down to a 6 out of 10.

Then I tapped:

Even though I drank too much wine, and now I’m paying the price, I love and forgive myself for this overindulgence.

Reminder phrase:

Paying the price.

My SUD Level of intensity on my heartburn went down to 3 out of 10.

Then I remembered someone had posted some excellent articles in the EFT newsletter where she directly addressed her body’s natural healing ability.

I decided to tap one round on:

Even though I overindulged, I ask my body to neutralize the excess acid in my stomach and to process the contents comfortably.

Reminder phrases:

My body’s natural wisdom,

Neutralize the excess acid,

Thank you Body for processing that rich food comfortably.

Bingo! Heartburn discomfort fell to a flat 0 number of intensity out of 10 after a tremendous belch! It took all of maybe 5 minutes of tapping. The tapping left me so relaxed that I went back to bed and fell asleep immediately.

Now, here’s the kicker:

The next day while I was mentally blessing EFT for having given me the tool to take care of my heartburn and no antacids problem, I remembered why I thought I had antacids in the house. About 3 years ago, I suffered from chronic GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Heartburn has been a nearly constant companion for at least 15 years.

my GERD problem was one of the first things I tapped on after learning emotional freedom techniques, and though I don’t recall exactly, it may have been the reason I did the search that turned up the EFT website and prompted me to sign up for the EFT newsletter.

Needless to say, EFT was so effective that I completely forgot having suffered for 15+ years with GERD. This recent heartburn episode was the first time in 3 years that I had any heartburn at all.
