Tapping for Weight Loss
One of the reasons tapping is so effective for weight loss is tapping relieves stress. Tapping on the various acupressure points changes the chemistry in your body from stress mode to relaxation mode. It decreases your cortisol levels “the fat storage hormone” and increases your serotonin levels “the happy hormone”. You get healthier and happier.
When you tap your heart rate decreases, digestion increases, and levels of serotonin and other calming brain chemicals increase. In addition, the levels of DHEA increase, which essentially puts your body in rebuilding and repair mode instead of breakdown mode.
If you are in the midst of a craving, tapping calms your brain, breaks the circuit of thought or feeling that underlies the craving, which significantly decreases or eliminates the craving. In addition, tapping on long-standing belief systems and traumatic events helps to heal the deeper issues that are very often the real reasons for emotional eating.
In my coaching, Tapping is used to release limiting beliefs that cause you to feel rebellious, deprived, angry or even afraid as you change your diet and lifestyle. Once you tap down and release some of those feelings you get inspired to eat healthy foods and have fun exercising. This process is easy to do. It can make a profound change in your habits. Tapping is not a miracle cure; it is something that if applied consistently will help you make the changes you want.
