Lazer Tapping for Addressing Connection Between Stress and HeartburnIs there a connection between stress and heartburn? Many people suffering from heartburn (GERD or acid reflux) say that stress is a factor in their heartburn flare-ups. It’s important to implement an effective healing modality that integrates the mental, emotional, physical, and energy body together. A great example is Lazer Tapping for addressing unresolved emotional issues.

When you are stressed, your body enters a state of arousal. Blood is diverted from the digestive organs to the muscles to prepare the body for action. The nervous system signals the heart to beat harder and faster, whilst blood pressure and pulse rise. Changes occur in the movements of the stomach and intestines, and hormones are secreted to raise blood sugar. This increases the energy available to the brain and muscles. All of this is in preparation for your body to defend itself.

The connection between stress and symptoms

Many people refer to the gut as ‘the second brain.’

There is even a book by that title that details exactly how gut biochemistry parallels and interacts closely with the brain. For example, 60% of the neurotransmitters in your body are not found in your brain, but in your gut!

It makes sense that indeed, stress can exacerbate practically any physical symptom. Additionally, it can lead to behaviors that can trigger heartburn. When under stress you may find it more difficult to implement or stick to good eating, exercise, and sleeping habits. This,can aggravate acid reflux/GERD if you’re already prone to it.

Lazer Tapping for addressing unresolved emotional issues or wounding

For unresolved emotional issues or woundings, I recommend Lazer Tapping, hypnotherapy, and craniosacral therapy. For life’s ongoing stressors, use yoga, tai chi, and/or meditation.

Was there a particular life event after which heartburn became a problem? Or maybe you are dealing with stress that ongoing discomfort produces? Regardless, you still need to heal this stress or trauma using a mind/body healing tool. Lazer Tapping is the tool I recommend as it is a highly effective healing modality that integrates the mental, emotional, physical, and energy body together. It is derived from a centuries-old Chinese acupuncture meridian tapping practice called Neigong and is similar to EFT.

Lazer Tapping works by tapping on a series of acupuncture (meridian) points whilst:

a) talking out loud about the problem,
b) accessing your body wisdom about this problem,
c) re-framing the problem in a way that sets you up for a positive or alternate experience concerning the problem
d) choosing or affirming that you’re willing to move into a new reality with this issue.

Tapping on the acupuncture points whilst talking

Tapping on acupuncture points whilst talking frees/releases the problem, negativity, trauma, etc. from your energy body and physical body. In this way, it is a healing therapy that effectively integrates and effects change in the mind, body, and spirit.

“I am using Lazer Tapping all the time, and I am feeling a lot of joy from using it. That is, I feel joy AFTER I use it! I love watching the videos, and do them often – not daily, but often. I notice I’m still resistant to the feelings of sadness or despair, and I eat and turn on the TV…so the tapping happens most often at night when I lay down in bed, and it takes me a while to fall asleep. Often it is then that I notice my swirling mind, and I do the LT then. It is just magical and I love it. I may start with a small idea, “Even though I feel sad, or angry, or whatever … and nonetheless….” and then other feelings or sticky points will rise right out of the tapping, and I’ll realize, “OMG – this is all about shame!” And so this is a wonderful tool Jini. Thank you so much for it.” – D.W.

Lazer Tapping works extremely well when applied correctly. The key is being able to figure out what is at the root of your problem/issue/symptom and then tapping effectively on that. There can be a number of roots, or layers to the problem which all have to be addressed to see resolution in your physical body.

Lazer Tapping is my favorite body/mind healing tool for the simple reason that once you learn how to do it effectively, you can do it yourself and take it with you anywhere. Come on over and experience this powerful tool yourself! I’ve set up a webpage with more details on Lazer Tapping here and a chance to try a free session with me.
