Advice to EFT Users: Drink Water! 

By Dawson Church, PhD

I’ve trained thousands of people in EFT over the years in various formats.

These range from small in-depth training workshops to brief demonstrations following keynote speeches at large conferences to Internet radio and television shows.

I’ve fielded many questions during that time an one of the most common questions is: How is drinking water during an EFT tapping session helpful?

Your body is 70% water, and water is an electrolyte that conducts electricity. Water is essential for the biochemical process by which your cells signal each other. many people are dehydrated without knowing it, because we’re rarely trained to drink enough water. We’ve become accustomed to being dehydrated, and may mistake our body’s signals of thirst for hunger, anxiety, or compulsive behavior.

It’s a good idea to drink water before and during an EFT tapping session, to make sure that you stay well-hydrated.

During the experience of strong emotion, your sympathetic nervous system becomes active. It shifts resources toward body systems required for flight or fight, such as blood circulation and your muscles. It shifts resources away from nonessential systems like immunity and digestion. That’s why your mouth gets dry when you are under stress.

Remember that tense job interview during which your salivary glands dried up? Or when you proposed marriage to your spouse? Or when you had to make that public speech, you were very nervous, and your mouth went completely dry? Those are symptoms of the fight-or-flight response.

The simple antidote is to have water handy during each EFT tapping session, and take frequent sips.

Sipping water helps reassure your body that it’s being taken care of, even though your processing strong emotion.
