Panicky feelings can create both panic attacks and overeating. My client views EFT as a “fool-proof method” to short-circuit her panic attacks. It only takes 1 or 2 rounds to stop the panic attack and get back to sleep. She has had only 1 attack in the past 4 months, and has not needed any medication. She has also significantly reduced her overeating.
If you've ever had a panic attack, it's not something you want to repeat. While they can be managed, it's a very uncomfortable, frightening experience. Anxiety often drives overeating as well. You may be surprised by the similarities in these 2 issues.
