From time to time my partner has had attacks of extreme epigastric pain.
On two occasions he was admitted to Accident and Emergency and once was admitted with and overnight administration of morphine. X-rays were inconclusive and the doctors are unable to diagnose the cause of his pain.
His physicians indicated that exploratory surgery might be necessary.
Each time previously I have treated him with Reiki in the emergency department until the pain has resolved and we have walked away. Each time the pain comes on during the night but there is no trace of any discomfort the next day.
The previous attack started at 10.30 p.m. and went on until 4 a.m. while we were on a skiing holiday and staying in a hotel.
My partner has been a nail biter most of his life and has been treated for this with Robin Ellis, my TFT tutor. As a result, he stopped biting his nails. Wheat was found to be a toxin and we have avoided wheat for many months.
However, last Sunday we were invited to a party where virtually all the food was wheat-based. He had a sandwich and also some peanuts. I had suspected peanuts to be a toxin but he had already popped them into his mouth as I was about to warn him. He had only a couple of alcoholic drinks at the party.
He had not had an attack of this epigastric pain for two years. But on that Sunday night at 10.45 p.m. The pain awakened him from his sleep. It had started again.
This time, I had TFT as a tool in my tool box to help deal with this problem and suspected it was caused by toxins. Before the pain took hold, we got out of bed and started arm testing for everything he had consumed at the party.
We treated for wheat and the pain started to go down from a 9 to a 5. I treated for trauma of the last attack and the pain reduced again. I did diagnosis (probably not as well as I would when I was fully awake). I had been asleep for just an hour.
I directed him to tap his index finger, then under eyes and also eyebrows and the gamut for pain reduction.
After a few minutes of tapping the pain had lessened and the arm was strong – we did the 9 gamut to finish and he wanted to get back into bed to sleep. By this time, the pain disappeared!
It had only lasted less than an hour and had not progressed to the point where my partner was doubled up on the floor as before. He certainly won’t be having peanuts again! Next time we are invited to a party we will eat at home first just in case. Avoiding the toxin causing this pain will eliminate the need for an exploratory surgery.
