A Journey of Healing with My Knee, Using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

A Journey of Healing with My Knee, Using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

In 1973 I took a bad tumble while skiing and wrenched my left knee. Since then I have experienced minor pain, swelling, clicking, and a general feeling of disjointedness in this knee from time to time. Approximately in 1986, a year or two after my diagnosis of Crohns Disease, my left knee swelled considerably for no apparent reason. My doctor thought it could be due to a part of the Crohns or an unrelated arthritis. I spent a few days in bed and then had to walk with crutches for a week or so In January 2007, I began learning about Emotional Freedom Techniques and how it could help me uncover and heal the layers of my Crohns Disease. one day in March 2007, soon after I began using EFT for my Crohns (Anthony-Green, 2009) my knee went completely out of joint when I got into my car. I hadnt twisted it and there seemed to be no physical lead up or cause I couldnt sleep that night as the pain was so severe, and I didnt take pain killers because I have become somewhat of a purist regarding how I care for myself. A few days later, I had an EFT session with my therapist, Andy Bryce, regarding my knee. During that session we primarily tapped on the physical symptoms and the pain in my knee. My pain decreased from a 7 to a 2 by just tapping as I focused my mind on my symptoms An MRI in July, 2007 showed the knee cartilage is completely worn away.
