recommend that anyone with medical problems obtain the advice and treatment
of a licensed medical doctor. Also, if a reader would like to try our

who is familiar with you and your problems.
Story of Thought Field Therapy (TFT)
And Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
About three years ago, I
received a phone call from Fuller Royal, MD director of a medical clinic
in Las Vegas. He called to tell me that the treatments I developed were
helping his patients. He told me that he used Heart Rate Variability
(HRV), an objective test, unresponsive to placebo, in order to test
all his treatments. He said that he never has seen a more powerful means
of improving HRV.
A short while later, I was contacted by an expert
on HRV, he told me that he was using HRV to measure the effectiveness
of various treatments to reduce anger. When he tried my treatment for
chronic anger, he saw a dramatic improvement in the patient and also
a dramatic improvement in the HRV score. (It is well known that chronic
anger can be a serious problem for heart patients.)
Still later, I heard
from a practitioner in Norway who manufactures HRV equipment and the
results he obtained from using my treatments had such a powerful effect
on his HRV equipment that at first he thought something went wrong with
the equipment for he had never before seen such changes in HRV.
it was the power of my treatments and his equipment was fine.The term Heart Rate Variability
refers to a precise measure in milliseconds in the variation in the
intervals between heart beats.
Over 40 years ago, it was found that
when the interval between heart beats becomes smaller then death follows.
Two people can have exactly the same heart rate of 75 beats per minute,
while one has a healthy variation in the intervals between beats while
the other may be close to death due to extremely small intervals between
beats. As the intervals get smaller, death approaches. The chance of
death, much research shows is not just due to heart problems but can
be due to cancer, infections, diabetes or almost any other condition.
There are numerous research
studies that demonstrate that HRV is the best predictor of death available.
This rather pessimistic view came about, in my opinion, because until
recently there were no known ways to dramatically improve HRV.
been shown that quitting smoking and regular exercise could definitely
improve HRV but the improvement, though significant, was not dramatic
(see chart below).
Our clinical research shows
that the elimination of stress in the form of anxiety, depression, guilt,
etc, through TFT can improve HRV dramatically and it is now meaningful
to speak of HRV as also a measure of renewed health. A study published
in the American Journal of Cardiology (Bilchick et al) gives meaning
to the degrees of improvement in HRV and what it means.
states that " each increase of 10milliseconds in HRV, gives
a 20% decrease in risk of mortality "
To illustrate the significance
of this statement consider this physician who suffered from depression
for 20 years and was not helped by the medications or the psychotherapies
he tried. He attended one of my trainings and he volunteered to have
his depression treated with TFT. He took an HRV test before and after
treatment. His depression prior to TFT treatment was a 10, meaning it
was the worst it could be. The treatment took a matter of minutes and
his depression completely disappeared. His HRV score (SDNN) before treatment
was a very low 32.2ms. Immediately after the brief treatment his HRV
increased to 144.4ms. Such dramatic improvements are unheard of in the
According to Bilchick et al, such an improvement might
result in a profound decrease in the chance of death. If each 10 ms
increase results in a 20% decrease in the chance of death then it may
readily be seen in the light of the Bilchick et al study, that there
is a dramatic decrease in the risk of death for this individual.
It should be noted that although
such improvements as this are commonplace with TFT, not everyone responds
in this manner. This case, like others, needs to be followed up in order
to ensure that the dramatic gains hold over time.
Also, it is important,
as noted above, that the person's medical doctor further check on these
findings.A study carried out at a
major hospital on TFT and depression found that depression was reduced
from an average 7.3 (on a 10 point scale) to a 1.6 (Sakai, et al).Professionals all over the
world are now eliminating the stress of such psychological problems
as trauma, anxiety, and depression with great speed and alacrity not
known before TFT.
Time Scale: Exercise and smoking cessation are after one year.
is after two months of training.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for depression
was carried out for 16 sessions.
Sertraline was administered for depression
for 22 weeks in this study.
Common side effects with Sertraline include
nausea, diarrhea, tremor, insomnia, somnolence, and dry mouth.
depression was done in one session within minutes (Callahan, 2001d).
Typically there is immediate elimination of depression and immediate
increase in HRV averaging 80% in this sample.
No harmful side effects
