Tapping on the Karate Chop Point (Side of Hand) repeat the following:

Even though I have these exhausting night sweats,

I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I have these exhausting night sweats,

I deeply and completely love and forgive myself.

Even though I have these exhausting night sweats …

As soon as I get into bed,

And lie down,

Up they start,

These exhausting night sweats.

And it NEVER goes away.

It doesn’t matter if I’m hot or cold,

Inside or out,

If I have the fan full on,

Or if I’m wearing the lightest of bed clothes,

And have the best pure cotton bedding.

It is SO exhausting;

I don’t know what’s worse,

The sweats or the insomnia!

I can’t stay awake in the evening,

I keep nodding off,

How embarrassing when the family are there.

Yet as soon as I get into bed,

Up they start!

Those incredibly hot and wet sweats.

They come on with a vengeance,

Sudden and intense.

I wake up in the night,

Feeling like I’m going to combust.

And I am SOAKED in perspiration,

Soaked to the bone,

My hair drenched,

And the pillows and sheets, too.

I have to change clothes and bedding,

And sleep on towels.

These night sweats prevent me from sleeping.

WHY am I sweating like this?

EVERY single ruddy night!

I get so clammy and wet,

From head to toe.

When does this all freaking end?

Is there nothing I can do to stop it?

Will it ever go away?

I lie in this furnace,

This heat-wave that feels

As if my blood is boiling

Tossing and turning.

First I throw off the bedding

Longing for a current of cool air,

For any tiny bit of refreshing coolness.

And then freeze as I cool

And the sweat evaporates.

I feel so bad

Because it affects my husband/partner,

Disturbs their sleep too.

I’ve even had to go

And sleep in the spare room,

With the windows wide open,

Even in the midst of winter!

I feel so out of control,

As my body takes over,

Its thermostat constantly on high.

What have I done to deserve this?

Why does my body do this to me?

Will it ever end?

It’s driving me mad!

And even though I have these exhausting night sweats,

I deeply and completely,

Love, forgive and accept myself.

Now it’s time to move on to the individual tapping points. Tap gently but firmly a few times (about 5-7) on each point as you say the phrases.
