I’m reading various posts on your blog and would like to mention an excellent website, http://www.emofree.com   which introduces EFT (emotional freedom technique).  EFT is basically accupuncture without needles.  It is “tapping” on the body’s energy meridians and is used to release emotional blockages in the energy pathways.  The saying is to “try it on everything” from fear of flying to migraines to ”frozen” joints to overeating, etc.  Really cool and no bad side effects! And the manual is FREE.
