Tapping on the Karate Chop Point (Side of Hand) repeat the following:
Even though I have these relentless hot flushes,
I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I have these relentless hot flushes,
I deeply and completely love and forgive myself.
Even though I have these relentless hot flushes …
It’s like I have a furnace inside of me.
So very hot!
So very uncomfortable.
And embarrassing too!.
I hate it when I look like a beetroot,
With my bright red face
And burning neck
And nowhere to hide it.
When I need to strip off my clothes or melt.
Everyone can see me,
Bright red face.
It never seems to stop.
It goes on and on,
Relentlessly on and on.
It’s been going on for so long now.
Is it ever going to finish?
Am I stuck with this for the rest of my life?
This relentless heat and burning?
Are my hormones ever going to let me go
And live my life again?
I’m tired of being told “It’s one of those things”.
“What do you expect at your time of life?”
And if I’m not hot, then I’m feeling chilled,
Because the flush makes me so warm
My clothing gets damp
Or even wet through!
I layer my clothing,
But it’s such a bind.
And it makes me feel heavy headed,
As the heat rolls over me.
Removing the layers hardly helps
Nor drinking water,
Nor fanning myself
Just wave after wave of heat and tight-
But now I choose to know
That enough is enough.
that I’m no longer
going to be ruled by these flushes
That my hormones can balance themselves.
And I choose to know
That I deserve to be free of this
And even though I have these relentless hot flushes,
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-

Take a nice, slow deep breath and let it out. Drink a glass of water too.
Some of the phrases used above are taken from the research I did for “Menopause – Hormonal Balance With EFT” and include words from Leslie Kenton in “Passage to Power” and an interview she did with Dr Leichti, once director of the Bircher-
There is one account on Gary Craig’s EFT website where a lady, Nancy O’Hanna, found that she was actually becoming too cold, rather than too hot, so she needed to amend her choice of words. A case of be careful what you ask for.... Words do have power!
So there you -
