Dear EFT Community,
Larry Johnson offers this in-depth article on using muscle testing and EFT to deal with a long-standing psoriasis problem. Larry includes thanking his immune-system for trying to protect him even though the result of this protection is a problem for the skin. An interesting article for anyone wanting use EFT for psoriasis or immune-system problems.
By Larry Johnson
After visiting the dermatologist for my psoriasis of 20 years, my first EFT protocol was centered around the Autoimmune Disease Model, as they explained to me that I was experiencing an autoimmune deficiency, in that my immune system was supposedly attacking me. Using this model I formulated the following EFT Protocol for autoimmune deficiency and I tapped to stop the body’s self-attack.
Even though my thymus is less vibrant and has shrunken from it's earlier youthful state, I deeply and completely accept myself anyway.
Even though my body's bone marrow and thymus gland collaborate to create specialized white blood cell warriors called T cells that have mistakenly identified my skin and other cells as invaders and attacked them, I deeply and completely love them for trying to help, and I deeply and completely accept myself. I also I deeply and completely love and accept the injured cells.
Even though there seems to be a problem for the T cells in identifying friendly cells versus invaders before attacking, I deeply and completely accept them and myself anyway.
Even though this friendly attack injures the skin cells, setting off a cascade of responses in my immune system and in my skin, resulting in skin damage, that includes swelling, reddening and scaling, I deeply and completely love and accept the injured cells and the attacking cells anyway.
Even though there seems to be confusion on the part of my T cells, regulated by my marrow and thymus in their mission to target only invaders or unhealthy cells, I deeply and completely accept my T cells, my marrow and thymus.
My body's bone marrow and thymus gland collaborate in the creation of perfect immunity and body defense through the birth of specialized white blood cell warriors called, T cells.
Even though in an effort to heal, my skin cells have been reproducing rapidly, a month’s growth taking place in days, as large numbers of new skin cells push their way to the skin surface, I deeply and completely accept the injured and immature cells and am thankful for their efforts to heal me.
Even though I have psoriasis as part of my defense against foreign invaders which contains an auto-immune disorder, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Even though psoriasis lesions are typically thick, red, scaly, and dry, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Even though new cells are coming in so quickly that older skin cells and white blood cells can’t shed quickly enough and so pile up on the surface of the skin, creating thick, red plaques with silvery scales on their surface, I deeply and completely accept the injured and new immature cells and I am thankful for their efforts to heal me.
Even though I am experiencing tiredness due to this no-win fight, I deeply and completely accept myself anyway.
Even though this chronic skin diseases causes red, scaly skin rashes, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Even though I sometimes have moist and oozing areas, I deeply and completely accept myself.
After a month of tapping using the EFT Protocol for autoimmune deficiency my results were dismal, nothing happened. I decide to look for more answers.
Following research on psoriasis and the autointoxication model, I found that both Dr. Robert Connolly and Dr John Pagano both presented and advocated an apparently successful dietary cure based on an alkaline diet, which is likely as there are many people claiming to be cured by this method, which is in large measure similar to the dietary suggestions for psoriasis as previously made by Edgar Cayce, while in trance.
The research from these sources shows that the culprit was likely diverticulitis or Leaky Gut Syndrome, causing autointoxication - self poisoning. Even in this mess, it was still a comforting thought to think that my immune system was not attacking me, but that the emunctory system was a little overwhelmed, of which the psoriasis was a result.
Using EFT with muscle testing , I checked for thinning and leaking (autointoxication) through the intestinal walls due to pockets called diverticula. My testing indicated diverticula in the capitalized areas of the large intestine, appendix, cecum, ileocecal valve, ascending colon, transverse colon, jejunum, descending colon, haustra, sigmoid colon, rectum, and anus.
The liver is the mater chemist assigned to produce key essential ingredients for intestinal function. With that in mind, given below are my liver testing results:
My Liver Testing Results:
Liver healthy and detoxifying as needed - 35%
Liver is healthy and able to produce bile as needed to properly contain waste products and assimilate fats and food in the small intestine - 40%
Liver is healthy and able to produce proteins as needed - 35%
Liver is healthy and able to produce fats as needed - 50%
Liver is healthy and able to produce carbohydrates as needed - 64.9%
Later when the 4 diverticula had healed – through EFT application only - my liver was easily able to perform 100% of all it's primary functions.
My model is the overflowing toilet – once the toilet is fixed then everything gets much easier!
My focus was to use EFT with muscle testing to problems and progress and a sensible dietary guide of avoiding small indigestible seeds - as in watermelon, strawberries and anything that might get caught in the pockets [diverticula] of the intestinal walls and cause irritation and inflammation.
Using the following protocol, I experienced immediate results and inside of 90 days the complete absence of all symptoms:
Psoriasis Testing Protocol
When a weakness is found, it is noted for EFT work!

Is the Esophagus healthy and properly coordinated as it functions with the alimentary canal and the respiratory systems?
Are the parietal cells in the stomach producing as much hydrochloric acid as they did when you were 20? What % are they presently producing compared to then?
What % of undigested food is the stomach sending to the intestines?
Even though my stomach’s parietal cells are producing x% of the hydrochloric acid that they did when I was 20 –I completely and thoroughly accept myself anyway.
Even though my stomach’s sending undigested food to the intestines, I completely and thoroughly accept myself anyway.

Liver is healthy and able to produce fats as needed?
Liver is healthy and able to produce carbohydrates as needed?
Low stomach acid or Hypochlorhydria can lead to many health issues. Food that is not broken down moves from the stomach, into the small intestine and colon, and then exits the body unutilized. With incidence increasing by age, at age 40, 40 percent of the population is affected, and by age 60, 50 percent.
Basic Muscle Testing Instructions
Is mostly learning to trust your body’s innate wisdom. For example,
You can easily test with your thumb and forefinger of your right hand using opposite thumb and forefinger to provide the pressure for the test.
For example using Y/N questions:
If you state my name is “REAL NAME” you should test strong.
If you state my name is “WRONG NAME” you should test weak.
ICV and HV Notes
Iliocecal valve (ICV) is a little known valve separating the ileum (last part of the small intestine) from the cecum (first part of the large intestine). Its function is to prevent materials in the large intestine from regurgitating (or backing up) into the small intestine, as well as preventing a premature and untimely passing of material from small intestine. The small intestine functions like our kitchen, digesting food and preparing food for nutritional use of our body. The function of the large intestine is like a septic tank system, eliminating toxic waste products and removing them from our body.
Houston valve (HV) is the sphincter located between the transverse and descending sections of the Large intestine (colon) positioned in front of the left kidney. It prevents decaying fecal matter from backing up into the transverse colon.
Autointoxication quickly occurs when the ICV spasms open, allowing toxins from our large intestine (septic tank) to back up into our small intestine (kitchen) and absorb into our body. The small and large intestines are two very different environments with two very different functions, and the Iliocecal Valve is vital in assuring that the two environments don't mix. Similar phenomenon occurs with the HV. These two valves should maintain homeostasis (stability) in the intestinal environment.
The function of these valves include, but are not limited to, responding to pressure, nerve control, various secretions, chemicals, and roughage. Most importantly, the state of our emotions and stress level affects the function of these valves. Proper functioning of both the ICV and HV is vital to keeping healthy environments in the small and large intestines, healthy digestion, healthy bowel movements and overall health of the body and mind. Malfunction of these valves can cause toxicity and intestinal dysfunction.
Our body treats the gastrointestinal organs as an external environment. Therefore, when the back flushing of food and intestinal matter occurs, the internal environment treats it as an attack and counter attacks by overproduction of fighter cells.
I hope this is helpful. I am currently dealing with this issue and so wanted to share.
I now no longer have psoriasis.
