Petition for New Wikipedia Policies that Allow for True Scientific Discourse about Holistic Approaches to Healing
Our American friends, ACEP, have launched an interesting and relevant new petition titled "Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia: Create and enforce new policies that allow for true scientific discourse about holistic approaches to healing."
As the title suggests, the aim of the petition is to make Wikipedia more receptive to holistic healing techniques. At the moment, many Wikipedia articles about healing approaches are deleted or only allowed to remain in place if mostly based on criticisms of the techniques.

Why Petition Wikipedia?:
Here's what the authors of the petition have to say:
"Wikipedia is widely used and trusted. Unfortunately, much of the information related to holistic approaches to healing is biased, misleading, out-of-date, or just plain wrong. For five years, repeated efforts to correct this misinformation have been blocked and the Wikipedia organization has not addressed these issues. As a result, people who are interested in the benefits of Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology, and specific approaches such as the Emotional Freedom Techniques, Thought Field Therapy and the Tapas Acupressure Technique, turn to your pages, trust what they read, and do not pursue getting help from these approaches which research has, in fact, proven to be of great benefit to many. This has serious implications, as people continue to suffer with physical and emotional problems that might well be alleviated by these approaches."
The petition aims for 10,000 signatures, with people all over the world already signing it.

I have benefitted from holistic approaches for my medical care for more than 10 years with wonderful results. I will not support any information source that does not represent the alternative medicine practices and providers. I will also discourage my students (community college) from using Wikipedia for their research, due to it having unreliable information, if this is it's policy.

Nanette Robinson AUSTRALIA
I have had great success, over many, many years with natural therapies for myself and my family. At times, having been healed when the medical profession could not help. I feel the natural approach should be a choice for everyone.
Alice Husain LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM
One in three Americans don't believe in Evolution. Imagine if they decided to keep editing the entry on evolution to suit their worldview. This is what is happening with topics such as energy medicine. Most people across the whole world think what they read on Wikipedia is "true". Most people don't check other websites when they search for information about a topic, they just read the Wikipedia entry as it comes up first on the search engine. So, let's give them as much information as possible, with caveats if need be. Don't provide one-sided entries, don't allow people to censor the information. We should try to make it as neutral as possible so that people can make up their own minds.

This is important to me because since Wikipedia is so widely used it unfair to prohibit information that can literally change someone's life for the better. Let the people decide instead of someone else making that choice for us.

I have a serious immune problem requiring transfusions every 28 days and also Luekemia - My medical clinic suggested I try using EFT. It is remarkable how it helped me and so many others I have met. This healing is now being done in most clinics and hospitals including the Mayo Clinic. I hope you will see what is happening all around you and support this very important tool for healing. Thank you.

Alternative, complementary medicine is the future of wellness. I believe Energy medicine, holistic approaches should have as much time and power as western standard medicine.
Wendy Orr AUSTRALIA
I'm especially disappointed as I've just donated because I've found Wikipedia to be very helpful in other areas. I'm now also concerned that, if the EFT page is an indication, that other pages may also be much less reliable, or more biased, than I had realised.
Jane Gillespie LUTON, UNITED KINGDOM
When I became ill 30yrs ago conventional medicine was unable to help me, until that time I had truely believed that conventional medicine had all the answers(I was a nurse) in desperation I tried changed my diet and had reflexology and aromatherapy which helped put my life back together. I have since trained in Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Kinesiology, Bach Flower Remedies which not only work on a physical level but also a mental, emotional and spiritual level, in a truely holistic way
James Kelly RED BLUFF, CA
I've been noticing this for four years at least..
Stephanie Marohn SEBASTOPOL, CA
Holistic approaches to medicine and psychology are increasingly pivotal in many people's lives, and a growing body of research supports the anecdotal evidence of the effectiveness of holistic treatments. Wikipedia needs to remove the old-fashioned bias that is keeping readers from getting the information they need on modalities in this field.
Kate Cusano WC, PA
The Wikipedia pages for Energy Psychology, Energy Medicine, acupuncture, and other forms of complementary/alternative medicine (CAM), which are currently skewed to a negative, unscientific view of these approaches despite numerous rigorous studies in recent years demonstrating their effectiveness. These pages are controlled by a few self-appointed “skeptics” who serve as de facto censors for Wikipedia. They clothe their objections in the language of the narrowest possible understanding of science in order to inhibit open discussion of innovation in health care. As gatekeepers for the status quo, they refuse discourse with leading edge research scientists and clinicians or, for that matter, anyone with a different point of view.
Ranko Pinter CAMBRIDGE, UNITED KINGDOM
This behaviour, exhibited both by the guardians of Christian Dogma of Middle Ages (Spanish Inquisition) and the guardians of Scientific Dogma of 21st century (scientism) is well understood in human psychology. It comes under several names most common of which are: militant narcissism, paranoia, character disorder. They are all characterised by aggression, bordering on violence, towards the alternative view that may undermine the carefully protected image of the sufferer. The paradox is that this behaviour of these, usually, 'big egos', is rooted in their low self-esteem!
I suggest that time has now come for these self-proclaimed guardians of true science to be exposed for what they truly are, and that the science which they are so jealously trying to protect is set free from their suffocating clutches.
Fiacro Hernandez Alaffita MEXICO
I am an acupunturist and EFT practitionist. For five years a I have attended many susuccesful cases with EFT
Sally Steedman LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM

Genie Cary CATHLAMET, WA
I use Wikipedia all the time, but I want true, unbiased facts.
Sean Kulyk GRAVESEND, UNITED KINGDOM
I believe in fair play, & indeed the truth, the whole truth & nothing but the truth. Unfortunately, some scientists tend not to be open minded, to the point of not even considering or analysing things which fit outside of their own personal 'paradigm'. in some cases dogmatic to the point of being not only arrogant, but set themselves up as the 'gatekeepers' to information. SCIENCE only grows properly through looking further, in new areas, without pressure from vested interests. Otherwise, we get a distorted and indeed 'biggotted' formof science. Certainly, science does not know all that there is to know re the physiological basis of health and dis-ease. Whilst Acute medicine has proved itself over and over, this is certainly not the case re chronic illness, and this is where people who have 'come to the end of the road' with western medicial approaches, end up seeking help from CAM practitioners. Many people have benefitted, and there are plenty of polls to back this up, aswell as studies. The fact that the 'skeptics' chose to ignore these, is hardly surprising. But it is annoying when they play the same 'broken record', over and over, trying to ridicule CAM. Thatis not to say there are no 'quacks' in CAM, as like any industry, it has some, but like western medicine, these tend to be the minority. However, ultimately, I believe that GROWN UP RESPONSIBLE ADULTS, should have the RIGHT to MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS. Indeed I believe that it is A SELF EVIDENT TRUTH that ALL PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT to ACCESS WHATEVER HEALTHCARE SYSTEM THEY WISH to ACCESS - period. UNLESS IT CAN be SHOWN to be MORE DANGEROUS than western medicine, then people shouldhave ACCESS toit, and FAIR and REASONABLE, BALANCED information about it, including via wikipedia. So please reconsider.. .

I have been using EFT for over 15 years and have obtained excellent and rapid results with it; I have particularly used it with phobias and other anxiety disorders, to great effect. Its protocol may seem strange, but that should not be a reason for dismissing it out of hand.

I have being practicing EFT for over 5 years with great success, even in areas where I have miserably failed with traditional psychology.
Mark Gabriel CHRISTCHURCH, N, NEW ZEALAND
I have been a part of the energy psychology, kinesiology, homeopathy, alternative medicine field for over 15 years and believe that approach is more balanced and healing than so called scientifically validated medicine. In fact, holistic approaches are validated every day around the world in thousands of clinics. If Wikipedia limits the contributions on its sight to a handful of skeptics, then they are doing a disservice to humanity.

Julie Simiskey LA VERKIN, UT
I've used holistic healing approaches with as much, if not more, success than traditional medicine. I've also had some very negative effects from traditional medicine. I think they both have great value and shutting down open discourse about EITHER is detrimental to everyone!
Cynthia Norton CHAUTAUQUA, NY
It's important to me because of enormous benefit I've received from holistic therapies.
Use of and evidence for the validity of alternative therapies is sufficiently widespread that they should be included in Wikipedia documentation regardless of their beliief in the validity. They should be including the reports of validity even if they don't agree with them.
roxana hewett LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM
Truth is vital.

It is disappointing to realize that I can't trust Wikipedia. The bias against energy techniques makes me question other entries I have looked up. Are they biased as well?
Harold Jenkins NORMAN, OK
I have increasingly seen Wiki pages hijacked by narrow-minded, 'scientific', vested interests who suppress mainstream research to the detriment of the majority. It occurs widely on Wiki pages devoted to nutritional values of particular substances. They lie, and Wiki policy supports these lies, implicitly (if not explicitly); that's but one example. EFT is another (and I'm certain there are many more instances, and topics, about which the same can be said). EFT has been studied in VA hospitals. It IS VALIDATED. It does not, however, enjoy 'consensus of opinion' in the medical community--because it does not serve their interests. I used to feel very positively about Wikipedia. I would like to again...
Hildburg Dr Schlenzka FINDHORN, UNITED KINGDOM
I am a medical doctor with 20 years experience in Clinical Research and Development. In my experience EFT is a simple and very effective healing approach. The practice of EFT can encourage adults and even young children to take responsibility for their own well-being. EFT helps to release negative and stressful thought patterns which are the root cause of many disease.
Liz Clarke EDMONTON, AB, CANADA

Angelica Gonzalez MEXICO

Geneva Durkee HOLBROOK, AZ
I have been appalled to learn of the sabotage that Wikipedia has been engaged in to present only biased information on topics where knowledge and experience are lacking. This is a huge disservice - and it has made me realize now just why so many people don't give a lot of credence to your resource, This whole subject is a burgeoning field with proven successes and documented evidence of its efficacy. I cannot understand why you are allowing certain individuals to prevent information from getting out. Please amend your policy! As I follow this thread, if no changes are made I certain will have to be more vocal about how unreliable Wikipedia is.
Thank you for your action on this matter.

John Craig WASHINGTON, MO
As in all things, truth is power.
Ed Chwekun, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist SAN DIEGO, CA
Openness to different approaches in psychological treatment is vital to fair-minded consideration of their effectiveness and validity. Labeling EFT "pseudo-science" is not helpful to understanding why it is so effective for so many people. Meditation was for years similarly belittled until studies made clear how effective and useful it is. Let's not allow one group to tell everyone else how to think. There was a time when that would have meant only Psychoanalysis was "scientific" and everything else was "pseudo-science". Let us admit that no one has the word from on high about therapeutic "truth".

Lorraine Knourek ABBOTSFORD, CANADA
I have used homeopathy and have had majoe health improvement over the past 3 years. Initially I had my siberian Husky dog treated at a homeopathic vet clinic and as we know placebos don't work on animals. After one appointment and 2 remedies specific to my dog's condition and emotional state she was cured of her chronic stomach issues and did not need the exploratory surgery recommended by 2 other veterinarians.
I have seena vast improvement in the conditions of other relatives and friends that have gone to the same homeopath. Even mainstream physicians take their family members to her. I'm sure that they only reveal this to very few people which is sad.
Please allow qualified people to correct misleading or incorrect information on Wikipedia about homeopathy.

Emotional Freedom Technique is the one and only thing that really worked to give me relief from symptoms of post traumatic stress and anxiety. I have also been able to help others with nightmares, anxiety, stress, sleeping problems and physical pain using this simple but profound technique. People need these techniques and they often work where nothing else will. It is criminal to allow people without any real knowledge about EFT and other energy methods to basically right propaganda that is not based in the facts.

My nursing training led me to herbal medicine and then homeopathy more than 40 years ago. A successful practitioner I found myself drawn to Reiki, I am a teaching Reiki master. As time went on and my boundaries expanded I discovered the supreme efficacy of EFT. Had I known about EFT before I spent all that time studying homeopathy my clients and I would have benefitted greatly from the experience!

The people around me have enjoyed excellent health because of good nutrition and supplements as needed. Always, we have been able to correct ailments in this way while using medical drugs only in emergencies and doing damage control on their toxicity (as recommended in pharmacologies) afterwards. Drugs do NOT provide teh means to maintain health, only to treat symptoms without addressing underlying causes. The body is a carbon/oxygen machine that is trained to use its environment to maintain health.

Natalia Savelieva SPAIN
It is important to present information objectively to give all the Wikipedia users a chance to research and learn about multiple options available and their results in the field of Energy related forms of medicine. Information must be based on experience and facts of everyday life of hundreds and thousands of people using these, so called, alternative approaches; and not on fear to look deeper and on lack of knowledge in this area. I sincerely hope a discerning way of choosing the articles will take over the Wikiipedia pages, for the highest good of all involved. I personally work with these methods, based mostly on Traditional Chinese Medicine and modern psychology, such as Qigong, Eden energy Medicine, Tapping and others and I see daily fantastic results, on myself, with my family, friends and clients, - the results that were not possible with allopathic methods. Thank you for your consideration! Happy holidays and blessings from Mallorca!

Cedar Wilde- MORWELL, AUSTRALIA
I feel that some organisations (Wikipedia) are not very scientific in their approach, they rely on the old crude criteria of proof but their are subtle aspects to many things that are starting to be felt (in fact I noticed this 50 years ago for myself but now there are many more people who are aware of them) Doctors are often the worst and though many of them would admit they don't know everything they still do not always have open minds on anything "new". They were sceptical when they were told that they were killing mothers by not washing their hands between deliveries during childbirth but when they did start to wash their hands the mortality rates fell dramatically. Keep an open mind Wikipedia and don't just write something off because it doesn't jibe with you own way of thinking, you are after all, supposed to be providing information to all of us freely.
Barbara Ann O'Leary MORGANTOWN, IN
I have a strong interest in sharing of information without bias. Energy Medicine has been demonstrated to have significant ability to support wellness.

Wikipedia is often one of the first sites people visit when they are exploring an unfamiliar topic. By not allowing a comprehensive representation of all the information available about certain topics (which are often poorly understood by limiting, conventional "medicine" supporters and certainly not researched by them) you are serving as prohibitive gatekeepers to a vast and unexplored territory. Is Wikipedia comfortable supporting a culture of ignorance simply based on a few peoples' narrow perspectives on life and healing? If so, I will certainly NOT be using Wikipedia any more as any kind of credible source of information, nor will I support any efforts to raise funds for your "organization".

I cant thank enough to Gary Craig and EFT. I am a practitioner since 2003, and EFT help me get through my depression from my divorce and domestic violence. It helps myself and my two kids ..and also helps lots of my friends and hundreds of clients. People who was not get any benefit from EFT, probably because they don't study the procedure from the right source and they don't apply it thoroughly, They take it for granted, without really knowing the concept. Science is important, I graduated from University my self , My major is Math. But science is certainly not God, not everything, not the only truth. What called Science can be "wrong" too. For example Daily intake of Aspirin used to be good, but latest research found that a daily aspirin might do more harm than good. For me, Experience is my truth. so It doesn't matter if the whole world judge differently about EFT, For me and my family EFT works and I really grateful for it.

Needless to say I will not be donating again until this blatant suppression of useful information has been addressed and resolved.

Accuracy in reporting or in description is essential.
Karen Jablonski CHARDON, OH
I have used energy techniques from Donna Eden, Gary Craig, as well as, other energy methods (EDMR) that has resulted in a profound change in my life. In the days of Christopher Columbus everyone thought the world was flat. At that time there was no scientific proof that the earth was round. If skeptics controlled the world they would have never permitted anyone to travel farther than known ports. I feel that skeptics of energy medicine methods are really not skeptics at all. They do not want people to believe in an alternative approach to medicine because the medical and pharmaceutical companies will not make the huge profits they are presently making. People who oppose energy medicine are not motivated because of their concern for the welfare of others, but are motivated by their greed. They are interfering with the progress of energy medicine methods because energy medicine methods do not rely on costly medical testing and drugs. Traditional medical approaches should not to be forsaken, but should be used in conjunction with energy medicine when it is appropriate to do so. There is much about the human body that we don’t know about. Traditional medicine does not have all the answers. The medical community has advanced as far as it has only because of open minded innovators who have taken risks and gone against current thinking. It is dangerous for our society to let greedy, close minded people control the future of our world. History has shown time and time again the disastrous affects that occur when this happens.Why is this important to you? (Optional)
Carol Pettirossi VERO BEACH, FL

Brenda Hoffner JAFFRAY, CANADA
Due to the ongoing failures of traditional "Western Medicine" people need to know there are alternative methods of healing. Without the prescription drugs with their ongoing side effects, without unnecessary invasive procedures....without having to rely on pharmaceutical corruption. People deserve to hear the truth of all forms of healing, then they can decide for themselves which route they'd like to take.

I will not and will never support or donate funds to Wikipedia unless it stops its practice of biased and censored information about alternative/holistic healing and energy medicine. The true scientific approach values inquiry and exploration, not fear and censorship.
Eileen Sullivan CHARLOTTE, NC
It used to be believed that newborn babies did not require anesthesia for surgery. The medical understanding at that time was that newborns couldn't feel pain, because parts of the brain and CNS that handle pain/response to pain are not fully developed in the newborn. So operations were done on tiny babies with only a paralytic agent. We now know, thanks to technological advances, that this was horribly barbaric and that our understanding of & assumptions about the brain and CNS were simplistic and/or just plain wrong. Meanwhile, all those babies suffered needlessly. We're in a similar predicament with EFT and energy medicine, in which the technology already exists to begin to prove the positive and beneficial effects but we still aren't quite capable of understanding/proving exactly how and why. Technology will eventually catch up, and I believe it will firmly and completely demonstrate the benefits and mechanisms of energy psychology. But many people will suffer needlessly in the meantime, unless Wikipedia and skeptics and status-quo'ers can be made to acknowledge the limits of technology and the possibility that the anecdotal evidence and growing body of research may be enough reason to consider and try these modalities with an open mind.
Tulip Hambleton ENFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM
Wikipedia does not have the right to censor information about Eden Energy Medicine or its practitioners. These practices must stop immediately.
Debra Burchard ASHLAND, OR
From Wikipedia: Corporate censorship is the process by which editors in corporate media outlets intervene to disrupt the publishing of information that portrays their business or business partners in a negative light, or intervene to prevent alternate offers from reaching public exposure. We want those "alternate offers!"

I experienced myself an astonishing transformation with EFT which I never could ever imagined before.

One of the major benefits of the worldwide web has been access to information. As a Complementary Therapist I know that Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology and Reflexology, all of which I use in my practice, works. There is a growing body of peer reviewed published scientific research that is available. This research needs to be available and to censor or block access to these studies is simply wrong. Come on Wikipedia, get your act together!

EFT for me has had the most consistent and major outcomes and break-through's of many systems of healing I have tried. I have personally witnessed 100's of others being helped emotionally from very dark places though my sharing EFT with them. Often with rapid and lasting results.
Please read the many positive outcomes this approach (without side-effects) has.
It is a gift to many in physical and/or emotional pain.
It has saved many from self-harm.

Dot Koppes BROKEN ARROW, OK
In 1994 a friend introduced me to information about vitamins. Intrigued I read everything in the O Fallon, MO library and began using the information. Months later I ran out of some of the vitamins and thought maybe it wasn't worth it. Within 3 days I started feeling aches and pains that were familiar but that had gone away so quietly I hadn't even noticed. Since that time I have researched many modalities that have produced major improvements in my life. These include reflexology, acupuncture, Donna Eden's Energy Medicine, EFT, Young Living Essential Oils, Access Consciousness Body Processes, NET/NEAT, massage and many more. I'm 64 years old and take no medications and feel great. Please let the world know that these alternative health care methods work. If you actually try some of them you will become a believer. What are the infinite possibilities for the people in the world to discover how to communicate with their bodies and become happier and healthier every day?
Donna Ball PEMBROKE PINES, FL
Energy Medicine like EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Donna Eden Energy Medicine have been very helpful in my life.
HILARY Moon LONDON, CANADA
This issue is important to me because I turn to Wikipedia often - presuming that I will get unbiased and generally correct information. So I was shocked when I looked up Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology and found it was such a skeptical, incorrect assessment of this leading edge perspective and practice that is helping millions of people - even those that traditional medicine cannot help. I use EFT in my own life, and I have taught it for 15 years, and nothing comes close to the profound beneficial effects and results that this practice offers people. Is Wikipedia so much out of touch with the new understandings that Quantum Theory is providing, by SCIENTIFICALLY substantiating the dynamics underlying healing practices of ancient cultures ?
Please stand up for what we all look to Wikipedia for - honest unbiased information on any subject. When we begin to jeopardize our stated integrity, then rot sets in. Please change your support of the biased approach on this vital and innovative field, and allow your readers to assess for themselves. Till then, I cannot donate to your organisation, although I have in the past. Such a shame.
Chester Wood CRESTONE, CO
I have refused to donate to Wikipedia for years just because of this issue. I'm glad that a group effort has begun to try to change this. The article on Homeopathy is a disgrace. Any article on a controversial subject should at least allow both sides to comment. And the people who are most familiar with the subject (such as practitioners and patients) should have the first and last word. Instead, the homeopathy article (and I assume the other articles mentioned in this petition) are controlled by narrow-minded bigots who know nothing about the subject.

If you observe the changes in people following these treatments, it is a clear sign of a closed mind that you would not wish to explore the reasons for these results. The results exist. An unwillingness to accept them, or at least be willing to investigate them, is short-sighted to say the least.

EFT is highly effective for trauma on many levels. It works easily and effectively and costs nothing. Science will catch up one day!
Ronni Blair VIDA,, OR
As a Level II certified PSYCH-K practitioner and as a Health Coach in training, I know from my 12 years of research & personal experience the primary benefits of healing emotional trauma and negative and limiting beliefs. The Ancient Taoist practices of Qigong support the long-lived legitimacy of emotional and physical benefits from energy medicine, practiced widely in the West, especially since the Sedona Method was used in the mid 1970s. Censoring and biasing information on Wikipedia blocks true knowledge and could be said to be indirectly responsible for the lost opportunities to learn about the many 1000s, if not millions of energy healing practitioners at home and professionally, that are well known to release the pain of PTSD, early childhood traumas, and virtually many other dis-ease conditions caused by energetic blocking of emotions. Many psychologists are realizing that talk therapy alone, a “left brain only” approach has not been effective in helping clients to release subconscious programs that no longer serve them, whereas PSYCH-K used by a professional psychologist after only a weekend seminar, supported in long time client to release lifelong agoraphobia. It is time for a new paradigm in health, and an end to financial monetary gate-keeping and social engineering of society. Free speech and the right to seek self healing information could be seen as malfeasance, particularly when existing pages are removed. Only open information flows will take humanity to the next level of consciousness, a paradigm already rising on our precious planet.

Wikipedia is supposed to represent all views on a subject. When personal bias creeps in, the basic premise of Wikipedia is violated. What's the point in accepting information that is untrue.

I was a licensed physical therapist for 40 years----after studying energy medicine, now I understand why so many patients did not progress, find a final resolution of their illnesses, treatment for chronic pain: I could go on and on how energy medicine has helped people, even cures, that Western Medicine did not help, much less offer any cure.
The worst thing that can happen with energy medicine, unlike Western Medicine treatments and/or pharmaceuticals that are toxic and even dangerous to thousands of patients.
I will not support any organization that will not assess the science behind energy medicine and offer accurate information regarding other forms of holistic treatment.
Eileen Manson WHITBY, ONTARIO, CANADA
I have many issues being, elderly, and when I was dealing with cramping in the legs and feet, sat on the edge of the bed and with great speed, did the EFT until the cramping passed.

Wikipedia is not a commentary piece. It is based on fact and not slanted in any one political direction. Things written for Wiki need to remain neutral so the masses can decide for themselves.

Keep the facts simple stated and let others decide.

Energy Medicine has proved to be indispensable to me and my family as we have experienced the loss of our mother, other relatives and family friends; have faced physical challenges, and dealt with long-standing family issues. Throughout we have been supported by Energy Medicine in several modalities. It is important to our family that such a critical asset for the healing of our culture be portrayed through the clear lens of an objective reporter. The members of our family ask only that you search within yourself and consider that yours might not be the only point of view with validity. Thank you for considering my opinion.

There is a large and growing scientific base for many forms of energy healing and other holistic approaches. If you chose to maintain the Nig Pharma world view with disregard of other valid methodologies to maintain health and interventions when health care is needed, then I will no longer utilize or share in your venture.

Using Emotional Freedom Technique I have had great results in helping clients make sustained changes to emotional, psychological and physical difficulties where more traditional methods failed. Only yesterday I met with an ex client who quite categorically stated that without Emotional Freedom Technique she would not have been able to make the huge changes that have resulted in a life that two years ago she was unable to believe would be remotely possible.

Victor Smith VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA
Some of the "information" on your site is simply incorrect. While the existence of meridian points is certainly controversial, a more thorough examination of the availabe research is warranted by who ever is creating this entry on your site. There is most definitely research that points towards the existence of meridians. I am well aware of the idea of the irrefutable hypothesis as one of the cornerstones of scientific inquiry but the claim made on your site that this principle has been ignored is simply not true.
I was actually quite flabbergasted to read the Wiki entry on EFT. It reads as though it was crafted by someone from the American Psychologists Association, absolutely riddled with bias against a technique they can not abide by on a philosophical level. The irony here is that there are hosts of pseudo illnesses that are included in the DSM which read like the whims of someone making things up to suit there own theories and practices. Now, I don't really know who is writing this stuff down but the bias is undeniably clear. And you should do something about that.
As for the notion of why EFT works - that it's no more than standard practices wrapped up in some mumbo jumbo - well at the very least, EFT is a phenomenal pattern interrupter and that in it self is workable above and beyond someone simply talking out there problems. EFT is an extremely active process that involves the client very directly with their presenting problem. Combine that principle with the rebalancing effect of tapping on what, in my opinion, are well demonstrated physical properties of meridians and you have a framework for something that has had greatly demonstrated efficacy.
Talk therapy has it's place as do many other modalities. EFT is just one more, and a rather effective one at that. Please, do not allow the pseudo scientific ramblings and outright disinformation about EFT on your site to continue.

I scoffed at people who practiced EFT, until a highly respected friend challenged me to do at least one session a day, for a week, relating to a difficulty I had in my life. He told me that I had no right to criticize what I knew nothing about. I did the tapping for a whole week. I have no idea how something this seemingly simply can have such profound results. All I can think is that somehow it brings to consciousness the things that need to be dealt with ... allowing the tapper to do exactly that. I tap every morning and every night, now, and it has brought and continues to bring significantly positive results to my life.

Science, in health-related fields, is a vehicle of assessment to evaluate efficacy of interventions for the purpose of beneficial and risk-free change. As a licensed practicing psychologist for 30+ years, I have found "energy psychology" approaches used over the past 17 years to have more quickly, gently, and thoroughly assisted individuals to restore his or her life. What some clinicians have known for years is now "evidence-based" via published research. These findings ought to be made available to all interested readers of Wikipedia if all evidence is to be truthfully represented for the reader to evaluate.

Wikipedia claims to be a defender of science while at the same time exhibiting blatantly anti-scientific behaviors in that it is clearly closed-minded when it comes to all forms of holistic medicine, and anything having to do with consciousness studies and parapsychology.

Information should not be censored or controlled by people with one point of view. Because Wikipedia is widely used and the information trusted by so many, it has an obligation to present unbiased information, or at least both sides of a subject. Otherwise, the information is useless and so is Wikipedia. Many schools won't allow students to use Wikipedia as a resource in researching papers and projects for this very reason.

This is equally true for energy- medicine, Homeopathy. Repeated attempts to correct misleading information about it are blocked ... and by those who know the least about it. It seems obvious that more is at work than open-minded enquiry.
Jocelyn Munro AUSTRALIA
Because I have seen EFT work over and over where other modalities dragged on for years. Because I believe readers of Wikipedia deserve to have this kind of information available - of course it is, just not in Wikipedia.

We simply cannot afford to mislead masses of people with false information on EFT. EFT works , most of us need healing in some way or another, most of us cannot afford therapy, so stop making a fool of yourself, Wikipedia! Instead, start being supportive by giving proper information on this method that can work wonders for large groups of people. We need your support, not your arrogance!

As a licensed psychologist, I look for evidence-based treatment modalities. Some "alternative" therapies do have the research to justify their use. Wikipedia needs to report on these modalities accurately so that people who might benefit from them will have the confidence to seek them out.
Elizabeth Galbraith LONDON, CANADA
Energy work - working with Chi has been around for milleniums and has stood the test of time. If it didn't work it would not have survived. Modern medicine has been around for how long? Interesting that there are lots of things now showing that the effects are not always as reported and there are a multitude of side effects that the tests did not find.

Thierry VATTAN FRANCE
Because I have a scientist background so when I read the article I am surprised about 2 specific points. The explanations given in the articles (apart from the description of EFT) are all againt EFT. Impossible to find anything in favour which is weird and reflect serious biases. Knowing there are the name of 4 proponents and subsequent proponents (Gary Graig, Silvia Hartmann, Jack Canfield, Nick Ortner) and they are all in favour of EFT the question is who are the people who wrote this article being 100% against EFT. Why don't we know their identity?

I have helped hundreds of people get over test-taking anxiety, fear of flying in an airplane and fear of spiders using EFT. The best part is that the EFT learners then are empowered to use EFT to manage their own emotions, without my help. They learn skills for independence and liberty from anxiety. Wouldn't it be better if the future patients could learn EFT with Wikipedia giving well-rounded discussions of EFT, instead of learning EFT IN SPITE of Wikipedia!

Meg MacQueen HAMILTON, CANADA
I have experienced the efficacy of holistic approaches to healing numerous times and have also witnessed it in others. Physicists know that fundamentally the body is energy and it's time to embrace that simple fact in an open-minded way. There have been many studies to support alternative approaches. It is now supported by science.
Jerri Butts GIRARD, OH
I have used holistic approaches for my health for twenty years, with great success. We need to find a way to wean the world, and Americans in particular, off of their dependence on pharmaceuticals treating symptoms and work on causes. Any bias for Big Pharma and the AMA dogma and against natural, proven effective modalities is a disservice to humanity.
Felecia Thackrey MANTENO, IL
I have worked with adolescent victims of abuse, including sexual for many years and have found EFT to be very beneficial in allowing them to deal with their pain and anxiety so they could process.

It has been the only thing that has had a lasting beneficial effect and I can assure you that I had tried many other forms of treatment, most of which provided only limited relief, some of which made things worse. With the help of a trained practitioner EFT can help you overcome any number of life's traumas.

Maile Teter HAIKU, HI
For many years I made diligent efforts to heal and regain full function in my life, relying upon allopathic, (traditional western) medicine. This path, and numerous doctors, failed to assist me in creating any beneficial change. In fact, I got worse, not better. It was only after turning to alternative care, (including some mentioned in the petition as well as other modalities) that I not only began to improve, but began living with a quality of life which I had never enjoyed even prior to the collapse of my health. I urge you to do what you can to help more people gain access to reliable, accurate, and up to date information about energy medicine and alternative therapies.
Flor Tavor JERUSALEM, ISRAEL
I have been healing people with EFT for the last 15 years and the success rate is 90%.

Please give accurate reports about the incredible potential of EFT to relieve stress, anxiety, depressed moods, trauma, anger and every other distressed emotion.

Wikipedia's value to me is only to the extent that I can trust it as an unbiased source or at least a thorough source. Otherwise it's just another blog.

If this doesn't change, I won't feel inspired to continue sending donations and urging others on my facebook wall, etc. to do the same during the periodic appeals.

I hold a PhD in molecular genetics, but have turned my back on conventional basic research that does not recognize the obvious, profound benefits of energy medicine - benefits that can be explained in part from the newer science of epigenetics.

I will no longer donate to Wikipedia and will ask my family and friends to do the same if Wikipedia cannot ensure a balanced representation of alternative treatments.

I went to Level I and II EFT trainings; I was the only one there out of 11 people who was not a licensed professional or studying to become one. You need to correct the misinformation.
Ellen Ribolla SOUTHINGTON, CT
I have personally been a recipient of multiple complimentary/alternative medical modalities. I have found equal/better results compared to conventional medicine on most occasions.

John Freedom TUCSON, AZ
A lot of people go to Wikipedia for information; and I feel concerned about Wiki's negative bias against alternative health and complimentary medicine.
george patrão SANTO ANDRE, BRAZIL
I have been personally benefited by the use of EFT. The fact that the official science can not understand how EFT works should provoke interest in researching and never takes her sabotaging its development and recognition. After all, that same science has not even a consensus on how the law of gravity works. As benefit of its credibility, Wikipedia should not submit to preconceived opinions of the more conservative part of science, but to express all opinions about the EFT so tha the reader can form his own opinion.
Tom Wasmuth ALBUQUERQUE, NM
It seems that certain forces are providing false content and preventing true information about EP and EFT from reaching the public on Wikipedia. I have experienced first hand, no pun intended, that EFT works on myself and others. I shall not contribute more to this agency until I know this situation has been rectified.

It is vitally important for people to become aware of an easy to use and non-medical way to feel better!!!!! It is imperative that a persons choice to well being is THEIR well informed choice on a way to better help themselves....... Knowledge is power and its not heavy to carry.

Svetla Popova PORTLAND, ME
I am a psychotherapist- Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. EFT is one of the tools I use in my practice to quickly and successfully process traumatic experiences with my clients in a gentle, respectful and non-envasive way. EFT has helped many of my clients dramatically shorten their time in counseling and start living their lives with the sense of freedom and satisfaction. It will be unfair to keep the knowlwdge and experience of EFT from people and keep them longer in suffering.

Chris DesJardins MANDEVILLE, LA
I did years of talk therapy with little results. When I found energy psychology I was finally able to get the results I was looking for. There is some research to back it up, it is mostly before and after brain scans that show a significant change in brain imaging, undeniable evidence that these techniques work.
Gary Peterson CHAPEL HILL, NC
My petition comments for Wake up Wikipedia: Petition on Fire!:
I am a psychiatrist in private practice. I am continually learning new methods that are of benefit to my patients.
Wikipedia having negative reports of energy methods decreases the number of practitioners' and patients’ interested in these methods.
EP has improved my practice in providing ways to teach patients how to center, balance and calm themselves in session and in their lives.
Please update your site to reflect the current literature.

I spent 15 years providing talk therapy to my clients. While I provided comfort and challenged many distorted beliefs, I was unable to help people shift out of their most fundamental problems. Energy Psychology has changed that. Now many of my clients find a release from old ingrained patterns of behavior that were once rigid and immovable. I have studied multiple methods of Energy Psychology and am thankful everyday for these skill and so are my clients.

No todo lo alternativo es corrupto, tambièn en lo cientìfico encontramos "noverdades" que se aplican como si lo fuesen creando limitaciones a la hora de la elecciòn de la terapia. Por supuesto que el conocimiento es necesario, pero màs aùn la intencion de liberar al otro honestamente y no ver como un "clientepermanente" capturado al afectado. Cuàl es el miedo? la medicina tiene un campo fisiològico donde trabaja y somos algo màs que ello. Si no se puede ver eso, limitese a invitar al paciente a intentar otras alternativas que la Medicina convencional no puede proporcionar. Quien es el juez, antes, mucho antes, el juez era el "mas sabio" no el màs viejo ni el mejor economicamente. Y Wikipedia, tiene algunos inconvenientes con el tema de "lo justo, lo legal lo permitido". Ni con leyes este mundo parece funcionar...hay que analizar a los hombres y sus vidas...

Natural and holistic is being killed by money hungry republicans.
Karen Berglund Horen ROUND ROCK, TX
We need to get away from mainstream ideas about healing - which really aren't about healing in the first place. We need to realize we are much more than machines that break down. Energy Medicine takes into account that we are energetic beings. Mainstream medicine has gotten way out of hand in this country.......it's all about profits and keeping people sick. It looks like Wikipedia is part of that mainstream and that's just wrong. Join the 21st century Wikipedia!

I have spent ovr 30 years in the medical industry which believes in treatment with sometimes detrimental impacts. I have experienced the healing techniques and have cured my self of several conditions from chronic pain and multiple chemical sensitivities that traditional medicine did not cure but actually made worse. I suffered for well over 15 years and would like to help others get accurate information and help.
Gary Marvin NORTH OAKS, MN
Scientific research about energy healing and other holistic approaches to treating illness, much of it published in respected peer-reviewed journals, has far outstripped public realization. Resources such as Wikipedia do a disservice by informing the public only of the level of knowledge that was current years, and sometime decades, ago, rather than allowing all current evidence to be fairly reported. I find myself wondering what other areas of Wikipedia are still, like the textbook committee in 1950 that recommended against including the theory of continental drift, expounding outdated and incomplete viewpoints as if they were the latest wisdom.
Rachael Murphy LOS ANGELES, CA
I look to Wikipedia for factual information about numerous topics. Whatever the editorial bias of its founders may be, has no place in an the encyclopedia forum. Put the info out there, and then let the reader make up one's own mind.

Larry Bellinger WATERVLIET, NY
What profession besides Psychiatry/Psychology can you think of that is set up so that the least effective practitioners make the most money? When was the last time you heard of a Psychiatrist/Psychologist curing anyone? It's time to open up the field to new ideas that can demonstrate clinical effectiveness.

In an attempt to provide for the valid experiences of some professions, I have experienced the often biased self interest in the gross editing of submissions merely on the basis of a claim of pseudo science. Interestingly one of the references provided was deleted on that basis even though the quote it referred to was allowed to stand. Curious logic there I think you would agree. This attitude to the lesser known though effective fields of endevour NEED to be allowed to stand on their own merits.

Rick Wilkes ASHEVILLE, NC
I've donated to Wikipedia in the past and view it as a core resource on the internet. That said, because I am an expert in the area of EFT and other energy modalities, the fact that those articles are being blocked from being BALANCED and INCLUSIVE of true research including control group studies means that I must also recognize that ALL articles must be subject to that same issue, whether I know about it or not. A new system of addressing this is required. Now.

Bonnie Anderson RATHDRUM, ID
If Wikipedia intends to continue as a 'fact checking source' then it behooves them to display the facts, not simply some peoples' opinions. If, as in this case, there is verifiable evidence to support the efficacy of this treatment method, then it should be included in the entry. Simply because someone doesn't agree with the method is not a reason to withhold information. That is censorship at it's very worst.
Joellen Wheelock ESCONDIDO, CA

Ivan Judd WHAKATANE, NEW ZEALAND
I have been operating a natural health clinic for the past 7 years, every patient is exposed to Energy Pschology in many forms, but mostly EFT, with. in every instance, posative and notable results. Conditions ranging from Depression, low confidance / self esteem, weight loss etc, all benefit from the treatments.
It is about time Wikipedia came out of the stone age, and may just find that the world is indeed not flat, and that there are alternative holistic practices that do work, and have done so for many years with thousands of people.
Renee Brown EDEN PRAIRIE, MN
I want to trust Wikipedia's information, but there is obvious bias on many articles about energy healing methods. There are a number of studies proving the efficacy of many of the methods that Wikipedia refuses to include in the data. This causes me to question everything I'm reading on Wikipedia. I donated to Wikipedia this year, but don't plan to again unless this bias is removed.

Janice Smylie CALGARY, AB., CANADA
The amount of censorship Wikipedia is allowing/supporting in the field of Energy Psychology is almost akin to 'book burning'. Rigid, narrowly educated people controlled the masses by limiting access to art or educational information to that solely provided by the 'controllers'.
Wikipedia appears to be approving of 'dark ages control measures' by allowing
self appointed 'squatters' to remove pointers to scientific research and documents supporting the benefits of Energy Psychology. EFT may not solve everything for everyone, but I have been sharing and helping others with Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) for ten years, and have seen good to amazing results for clients.
Wikipedia, we expect more of you, in balanced presentation of information. Please step up and take responsible action!

I have noticed this bias when consulting Wikepedia about healing modalities or pioneering medical professionals such as Dr. Daniel Amen. Citing "Quackwatch" as a key source in writing about a medical topic which has lots and lots of much more reliable literature written about it isn't acceptable, especially if it can't be changed or contested. Skeptics may be given a viewpoint about the topic, but should not be allowed to keep the topic from being accurately discussed. Thanks you for changing this serious problem. From a highly educated user who finds Wikepedia valuable on many other topics.

EFT is so effective and efficient, and the basics can be learnt easily, thus empowering anyone and everyone to take control of their own emotional health. No one need suffer anymore, unless they want to! SO, everyone needs to be able to get unbiased information from the best source...Wikipedia! Please! Allow holistic energy therapies to have some unbiased space, so people can make up their own minds.. Thank you.
Gayle Joubert ASH VALE, UNITED KINGDOM
Because I have used the EFT technique on myself and with hundreds of people and (if it is done right) it is a sad day when we dismiss something that works because we don't understand how and why it works. It's no different to the Church's hatred of Galileo.. until he was proved right.

I use EFT in my everyday life for myself and to helping my clients overcome undesirable symptoms they have for years ! EFT is simple and easy to use but yet very much effective with no bad side effects what so ever. It's necessary to inform the public about this safe way to get healing.

Donna Render ORLANDO, FL
I can say from fist hand experience, energy healing works! EFT is an incredible healing tool and I'm so grateful to have discovered it about 8 years ago.

As a therapist I work with EFT and similar Techniques for many years, especially with people on trauma and fears. This is so successful and other than 'acknowledged' Therapies it is soft to the suffering. I would like that Wikipedia sees to stop people write their private opinions of these therapeutic work and lets us tell people of the scientific studies that now prove their value.
Linda Christenson BELLEVUE, WA
As a financical contributor to keeping Wikipedia online, I am appalled to now learn that someone can "squat" on articles and maintain their personal bias viewpoints. I will keep a close eye on this issue and withold future donations until addressed.
Nancy Bates CAMP HILL, PA
I have experienced the healing benefits for myself. I was able to heal the itchy, redness of poison ivy. The benefits to family members using the 'borrowing benefits' mode has been invaluable as I have encountered serious live threatening family issues. Using EFT I was able to create a calm, peaceful setting where in this emergency situation, nothing else was immediately available.
Jo Hainsworth KATIKATI, NEW ZEALAND
EFT changed my life. It helped me to heal multiple allergies and have the freedom to be in the world that the allergies denied me. I've taught it to so many people and see so many have life changing results. Panic attacks gone, after being severe for years. Mild traumatic brain injury healed. Peace where before there was anguish and pain. In a time when there is so much anxiety and the medical system is groaning under the weight of all the need, methods like EFT make it possible for people to heal who would otherwise be doomed to sickness and anxiety. It's appalling that a few closed minded individuals are able to distort the truth and keep people from discovering peace.

I was under the impression that Wikipedia was supposed to be a conveyor of information that, where any conflict of ideas existed, would at least allow both sides equal opportunity to state their case and allow the reader to make a decision. Having just read your page on Emotional Freedom Technique I can see this is not true. It could not be more negative.
As a user of EFT I know from personal experience that it works! In future Wikipedia will no longer be one of my main sources of information and I certainly will not support you financially. On the showing of the EFT page you are not to be trusted to keep your ‘Editors’ in check.

Khalid Wolf LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM
I consider myself, intelligent, discerning and objective enough to know that Wikipedia has a major bias against any alternative medicine, philosophy or spiritual practice in general. Much like the organisers of the TED ralks, you seem to consider yourself 'above such nonsense'. This does not however, accurately reflect the opinions or experiences of a significant and growing amount of people who think and feel otherwise. Generally I have a huge respect for Wikipedia which I use regularly. This really is my one and only issue with your otherwise brilliant and honourable service.

I work as a certified EFT practitioner, specialized in working With Clients who are suffering from addictions, PTSD and anxiety. I am also using this teqnique on my self, among other Things I quit my 15 year smoking habit With EFT. It's a shame that there are People out there who are able to make people in need of healing believe that this technique does not work. Even worse: You are enabling them to do so Without letting those who have had great results using this teqnique voice their opinion. Wikipedia is supposed to be a serious website, a website People can trust to tell the Whole truth. I am disapointed to see that you only let People blinded by their own ignorance speak their mind. With all the resent studys that has been conducted regarding EFT/acupuncture and other healing modalities, With all of the Health professionals that are using it on their Clients With great results, it should be obvious for you that these "facts" you claim to be true on Your website, is (at the very best) questionable.
It is unprofessional to allow this kind of censorship, and I will not be supporting you With donations (or anything else for that matter) in the future, unless and until this issue is resolved.

Linda Kalturnyk WINNIPOEG, CANADA
This is important for many reasons. First, it's unscientific - anyone truly scientific has a open mind and I find a lot of things of Wikipedia very skewed. Secondly, you have tried to set up a place where people can get the "facts" on things and a lot of information on your site is not factual at all. Goes back to my first point. Not saying things should be endorsed with no investigation, but there is much evidence to show EFT for one works as do many other energy treatments. I could go on and on, but won't. Please consider a change in your approach. Thanks.

This technique and many other holistic approaches have made my life more comfortable and livable. Please remove the bias from your site.
Giorgio Piacenza LIMA, PERU
There's is evidence that a holistic approach also is necessary to understand reality in a "scientific" way. Without it an excessive emphasis on deterministic, past-oriented, quantitative, materialistic science will not be able to face the challenges in the world of complex systems we live in and will only offer more of the same piecemeal solutions to problems such as environmental degradation, economic instability and the creation of a wiser, cooperative and qualitatively-oriented civilization. There's good research and evidence on the crucial role that non-local, consciousness, information and qualitative aspects play in physics, biology, systems, and culture but these are frequently squelched by editors that think that all of that is airy fairy nonsense. That's a big mistake since holistic approaches can also be scientifically apt. The uninformed censorship becomes an interference and an impoverishment against the integrity in the advancement of science and culture.

Giorgio Piacenza LIMA, PERU
The advancemente of Science beyond its mechanistic deterministic, materialistic bias requires moving past the offhanded rejection of anomalies such as those given through non local holistic effects. Societies with the help of a more integral and qualitative view of science need to understand reality as a whole in order to work with complex systems more intelligently and stop contributing to create human systems that spoil the environment through fragmented forms of competition and ineffective, piecemeal solutions. There's evidence that seriously researched aspects of phenomena which that can also be understood through "holistic" approaches can contribute to the transformation of destructive, quantititive-only ways of practicing science and lead to a more effeftive and wiser integrated approach. We need to open up to these changes. Recognition of holistic approaches is ever more important today and should not be thwarted by 'decree'.

Jennifer Maxwell KENT, OH
I have been teaching energy psychology to my university students for the past 15 years as one possible option for dealing with stress and enhancing school performance. Students are asked to take it or leave it as they see fit, but to at least try it to see if they find it helpful. Many find it a useful tool to help them face school and test anxiety. I have also worked (as a licensed social worker) with individuals who have found energy psychology techniques to be very useful in addressing post traumatic stress. I contributed to Wikipedia's most recent fundraising efforts because I support the concept of Wikipedia and what it represents. As an academic researcher and professor, I believe that it's critical that individuals have an opportunity to weigh information--both pro and con--for themselves. The material on energy psychology and energy medicine is not presented in a balanced or an objective form. I urge you to change this so that people can make informed decisions for themselves. Thank you, Jennifer Maxwell, Ph.D.

Dr SJ Sutton WILLOW SPRINGS, MO
As a professional, I have found that EFT involves energy fields outside the body and appears to plug into and unite fields of healing within the mind and the body. We thrive as a species most sustainably when our energy systems are balanced and strong. We are then able to process and recover from past trauma and frozen emotional pain once desensitized are able to more on to traditional treatment, left stuck sustainable healing is difficult. EFT is a link that often opens that pathway to remarkable self healing. To discredit this field is a travesty. I trusted Wikipeda to be honest. Not so in this case! Can one trust Wik on anything, or it is just one man's misguided opinion?

I really hope, that the information about Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology, and specific approaches such as the Emotional Freedom Techniques, Thought Field Therapy and the Tapas Acupressure Technique in Wikipedia will be correct and tell about numerous rigorous studies in recent years demonstrating their effectiveness.
Terri charles MARLOW, UNITED KINGDOM
I believe that holistic approaches and energy medicine has its place in our lives, no drugs, no side effects, no needles, and no pain, thousands of people around the world have benefited from EFT let their voice be heard. Thank you.

Fiona Brown AUSTRALIA
I have had such amazing results with managing my anxiety in such a short time and all you need is your hands!
Ashley Meyer LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM
I see the role of Wikipedia as educational and a source of information to encourage freedom of informed choice. The fact that I have personally had first hand experience of helping thousands of people with these treatment methods and know hundreds of other practitioners that have similar experience, whilst I do not expect Wikipedia to promote these forms of treatment, I do expect informed information that is balanced and based on research and experience of thousands. Through my years of practise I have helped a vast number of people who were labelled 'beyond help' and have testimonials from clients thanking me for 'giving them their lives back'. As I say, promotion is not necessary, but balanced unbiased information is, in order for Wikipedia to maintain their credibility.
Tom de Kok ZOETERMEER, NETHERLANDS
Having worked with EFT for a decade with thousands of people seriously benefitting from the incredible results that EFT has allowed to occur where other regular methods have failed, censuring energy based therapy is crime-like. This again shows how Wiki can - and is actively - used to influence public opinion. The spirit of Herr Goebbels appears to still be alive after all.

Margaret Domask OAKLAND, CA
I first learned the EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) healing modality in 2001, while training to be a hypnotherapist. It is a simple, powerful healing tool, and deserves respect and recognition as such. Thank you for updating your wikipedia site with sound, current and true information, if indeed you choose to do so.
julia Harkinson GLOSSOP, UNITED KINGDOM
I know that EFT works. I use it in my NHS practice and it has changed people's lives. I am disappointed that a site such as Wikipedia can ignore what is fact. I used to use this site for information but knowing it is biased I now avoid it like the plague. They obviously do not use research papers to find out the truth about energy medicine. My background is nursing - I have a B.A. and an MSc in Health Ed.so am not swayed easily without evidence but all the evidence is there if Wikipedia wanted to find it.
kathy johnson LEWES, UNITED KINGDOM
I know the amazing effect of EFT as I am an EFT Practitioner. It has changed my life and those that i have treated
Senem Tufekcioglu ISTANBUL, TURKEY
I have been using EFT for 8 years now... I cured my life-long depression and related diseases. I've helped people overcome their phobias, and I've used EFT to cure problems when nothing else worked. EFT should be portrayed according to the practiced truth, not within some rigid, old school scientific way of thinking. I wish Wikipedia would embrace the facts that are demonstrated by practioners themselves and not those who have never used EFT in the first place.
Kate Peace LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM

We are all made of energy and to not utilize that in helping others is a sad fact in todays world that clamis to be progressing but will not be open to new ways that have been proven to work! People are suffering and if this helps them whey not offer it as a choice.

I have seen such remarkably rapid positive changes in my clients on an emotional, psychological and physical level that I find it reprehensible that anyone with no knowledge of EFT should deny it's highly benificial effects. Why is this gentleman Jimmy Wales taking such a negative stance? Is he in the pocket of Big Pharma? He obviously knows very little if anything about EFT. He should be ashamed of himself!!!

It is dangerous to have such misinformation about these therapies on wikapedia when there is valid scientific research and endless case studies to show how effective they are.

Wikipedia is peddling utter nonsense and ignorant disinformation with regard to EFT; as it has one of the highest success rates of ANY therapy, and has brought relief to millions. Such false information is potentially damaging to those who have lost all hope of ever healing their ills. Stating that meridians do not exist is also false as they have been known about for several thousand of years, and have more recently been mapped with the use of radioactive isotopes.

Everyone should learn of this and use it to improve their health.

Energy healing is a science; it is based on truth.
Anyone who is a fanatic (holding stupid beliefs without proof, evidence, experiment) is a complete fool, not a truth seeker. They have no business in representing an encyclopedia of what is good, true, scientific, factual. Anyone against energy healing is a stupid, fanatical Anti-Christ, anti-metaphysics, anti-truth. They should get out of the truth business and go back to Baptist Bull Dog School for Advanced Training in Fanaticism. And or rename the website, "Wicked-Pedia."

As a retired marriage and family counselor with a Ph.D. in psychology I am deeply impressed with what can be accomplished with this approach. Refusal on your part to acknowledge efforts to bring a more balanced representation of EFT (and energy psychology in general) strikes me as morally and ethically reprehensible.
David Colin Carr, DDiv, PhD NOVATO, CA
As a minister who works with people dealing with trauma, EFT is an essential too to bringing people back to the moment with a sense of grounding and strength that allows them to work constructively passed what has been thwarting them. It's also great when my back goes out from sitting with parishioners for hours on end. If you have not seen the EFT work with Vietnam vets dealing with PTSD, perhaps you have an excuse for not appreciating the power of this simple, non-invasive, liberating technology. It's a great tool for people who have a prejudice against prayer.
Paula Hall MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
I have been using Gary Craig's version of EFT since 2009 and love it. We use it almost every day for all manner of issues. People should given the opportunity to decide for themselves, not to have Wiki BIAS against alternative therapies, which is commonly the case. Very very very annoying Wiki.

Vivian Baruch NEWTOWN, AUSTRALIA
I've practiced as a psychotherapist & counsellor since 1981. Research has repeatedly established that the "one size fits all" approach to emotional & mental health issues rests on shaky ground. Therefore it behoves practitioners to have the flexibility to adapt to client's needs by using a variety of methods in a disciplined way, just as the public benefits by being open to trying new approaches. Many of my clients have been helped by various energy psychology techniques, sometimes in combination with other approaches, sometimes used as a stand-alone method. Please reconsider updating your pages on the various energy psychology approaches to include more recent research. Many thanks. Vivian Baruch
Marie-Pierre Cleret AUSTRALIA
Because I have witnessed its power as a wonderful, effective emotional first aid tool for my clients for over twelve years. It works faster than anything else I can teach my clients and, when they're in a fix, there is nothing that compares. Most discoveries are initially dismissed as quackery by the establishment: the sun as the centre of our universe, for one! Allow for grass roots research before you trash something new that's helping so many people. Finally, I have used it with animals and it has also worked there - and they don't get caught up in placebo effects..

Jay Green PITTSBURGH, PA
Energy Psychology has proven to be a powerful alternative to drug based psychological therapy. It has been extremely effective for me since the first day that it was introduced to me by my Doctor. The spread of false negativity about the practice of EP could only stem from ignorance or from greed driven by big pharmaceutical companies and those that benefit from them . There is still a time and place for drug based therapies, but EP is a wonderful, drug-free alternative and that scares some people. It is based in centuries old and proven techniques and is not some crazy hocus-pocus. Educate yourself, experience EP and then decide, because it is a fantastic evolution in how we help ourselves and should not be suffering attacks by blind witch hunters.

Josie Ruberto AUSTRALIA
Because this modality has been the only assistance I am able to provide my 93 1/2 year old mother that I have been alleviating all the grief and pain she experienced, losing her own mother, when she was 11, her first baby and husband within three days of each other, my sister 31 years ago and my father 3 years ago. Tapping has healed so much of her grief that she now has stopped crying all the time, she's happier and content and more peaceful. Before she had such a heaviness in her heart and the power of EFT has lightened and alleviated that desperation of wanting to die from her life. I implore you to please reconsider and try some healing modalities. EFT is very simple to use and even my mother can use it. It has given her, her life back. You can do this for so many others in grief and pain, trauma and experiencing so much more.
Noalani Terry MONTROSE, CO

I am an Energy Medicine Practitioner and use EFT as well as other modalities to serve my client's needs. This is one of the simplest techniques to teach and use.

On the contrary, due to the wide readership on this site, correct information based on research and case studies, would allow the reader to make an informed choice.

BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES AND THAT THEY SHOULD NOT LIST JUST THE NEGATIVE BUT ALSO MANY POSITIVE BENEFITS OF THE THERAPY. DOCTORA JUST WANT TO PUSH ALL THE SYNTHETIC DRUGS THAT ARE TOXIC TO OUR BODIES AND DISCOUNT THE MAANY ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO US AND FOR WHICH THE INSURANCE SHOULD PAY FOR BUT DON'T. I BELIEVE THERE WOULD BE LESS SICK PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TODAY IF WE DID NOT TAKE SO MANY PERSCRIPTION DRUGS FORCED ON US BY THE BIG DRUG COMNPANIES AND THE DOCTORS WHO GET KICKBACKS FROM PUSHING THEIR HARMFUL DRUGS!

There are many things in the world which we do not fully understand yet do our best to help. EFT may seem weird to some but also wonderful to others who have felt so much better after being treated, whether this is just psychological or can eventually be explained by neuroscience. Please pay people the courtesy of seeing for themselves and making up their own minds without trying to put them off out of ignorance.

EFT works, it's not something esoteric or mystic. It's something scientific.
Audrey Harvey FAIRFIELD, CA
I've donated to Wikipedia in the past... but will not be donating if this issue is not resolved. I mean, really, even the latest scientific studies on Acupuncture are ignored or censored on Wikipedia? While I understand the need to be careful in what is printed and published, many of the energy therapies mentioned in this petition ARE receiving more and more genuine, scientific proof of their effectiveness. If Wikipedia can't see its way clear to allow pointers to these studies and unbiased articles on these practices to be published, I certainly can't see my way clear to continue supporting an entity that allows such censorship.

I am a Master bodyworker, Polarity Practitioner, Cranialsacral therapist, I am also a Reiki Master Teacher and have worked at different hospitals doing energy work on patients and have seen profound effects through this work. Through my office I work with a lot of special needs people and it is amazing to see the changes in their life through the polarity and cranial work. Mayo Clinic has also uses polarity practitioners and has researched this energy work for a number of years and there's been so much scientific proof on how energy work does help heal the system physically, mentally and spiritually. I really feel that it's time that there are more publications out to educate the public on the holistic approach to healing. Energy medicine is going to be the new medicine of the future.

Michael Dunkley PERUGIA, ITALY
the scientific method is all well and good, but open information and free choice are equally important. science is often late to the party, witness the numerous times important advances have been scoffed at, demeaned and belittled for long periods before reluctant acceptance.
some healing modes are light years ahead of the tests still uninvented that would be needed to 'prove' them without a shadow of doubt, meanwhile real suffering is turning into well-being, empirically validated by thousands just stating their truths, no other agenda.
there are 'interests' who continue to profit off of peoples' ignorance, and they have huge budgets to confuse people and keep them unaware. please, wikipedia, do not be so ruthless on 'unproved; modalities, stay neutral and let us folks make up our own minds for ourselves.
Sam Neffendorf BRISTOL, UNITED KINGDOM

Being as Wikipedia has quickly become the "go-to" for information, the least it can do is make an effort to ensure their data-base is reflective of the truth, not simply biased opinion.
Robert Scott CINDERFORD, UNITED KINGDOM
As an EFT practitioner, I am well aware of the dynamic benefits of this therapy. although i am not legally able to make claims about what it will do, because of restrictions under the EU Health Claims Directive, i have used it on myself to "cure" food intolerance, resolve "gout" and several other problems that refused to be resolved by conventional means. I have used it to help others overcome drug, alcohol and nicotine addictions, resolve ME (with 3 patients) and stopped a cancer tumour in its tracks. i believe that the only limits of this therapy are those of the imagination, not the therapy itself. when i first came across EFT, i thought that the claims made about it were too good to be true. following Einsteins advice, that condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance, I did investigate it and became a convert. I suggest its do likewise.detractors do likewise.

Whenever a company refuses to listen to reason, then there is evidently an underlying prejudice. It is time that you stopped bringing your own personal likes or dislikes into the arena of information that the public can access.

If you looked at the research you would see that it is a vital service for those in need and suffering. Please consider putting their needs above your own personal agenda. Thank you

Eve Ilsen BOULDER, CO
I have a Master's Degree in Humanistic Psychology, training in and 55 years' experience in body-oriented psycholtherapy, and broad experience in a wide range of alternative medical modalities. For Wikipedia to censor unbiased information about these fields casts doubt on the legitimacy of its other information, and on Wikipedia as an accurate source of information altogether.

I am stunned considering how drugs are killing people (law suits frequently in the news)and how NATURAL care is saving lives. I healed myself from CANCER naturally. Unfortunately, many people DO use your pages for information on natural health and healing and will get your BIASED uninformed opinions.

The field of Energy Medicine has been enormously helpful for two of my children who suffered with mental health challenges. I was skeptical at first because I didn't understand how to reconcile alternative forms of healing with Christian beliefs. Thankfully, I was willing to give this field of medicine a try. I was first led to Rapid Eye Technology. It made such a remarkable difference for my daughter that I trained in it (and other techniques later on such as EFT, Quantum Touch and Radionics....) I went on to write a book that answers a plethora of questions about holistic techniques for Christians, including how life force energy fits with my LDS beliefs. Leading-edge hospitals are embracing integrative forms of healing. I did too, and it has made all the difference for my family and clients. Please let scientific studies speak for themselves so that others may investigate the evidence and be as blessed. Thank you!

At present I working with one of the countries leading private school helping some of their students deal with the pressure of taking their exams.I was saddened to read what Wikipedia has to say about EFT. I am fortunate because of the work I do to literally change peoples lives with this simple safe and powerful technique.

Because humanity benefits from all voices being heard. No longer, are a few, the gatekeepers to what humanity holds as true. It is time to step out of the Newtonian paradigm and appreciate that the Quantum realm is influencing our thinking, our research, and our way of understanding our lives. This paradigm shift is occurring and will continue regardless of Wikipedia’s decision regarding the integrity of their site.
I might suggest that Mr. Sanger reflect on the uniqueness of his idea when first conceptualizing Wikipedia.

Healing is something that is essential to the human race - in order that we learn and evolve. Sometimes it is a partner or a child that heals our heart, sometimes it is a therapist that helps us to be able to let love into our heart when it is all around us. Alternative healing needs to be represented honestly rather than vindicated as unhelpful or manipulative. EFT in particular is an incredible tool and the info on Wikipedia paints a picture that does not reflect the evidence base available. Further, articles like this damage the reputation of Wikipedia.

I am so impressed that I have started to train to become an EFT practitioner. Those people who are editing out the positives should give it a go before they put other people off.

I am a trained Mechanical Engineer who has worked in three different countries as a Schlumberger Senior Field Engineer before opening my coaching and consulting company. After four years of getting paltry results in changing people in corporations I was almost closing my business believing that changing people as quickly as I wanted wasn't really possible. Then I came across EFT and being a 'logical engineering mind' I naturally scoffed at the technique. However, because the process kept popping up on people's webpages I respected, I one day chose to give this 'silly white people's scam' a trial: I use to have constant migraines every week and using Gary Craig's then free manual, I applied it quite clumsily to it. The migraine went in less than 3 rounds. Naturally, I attributed it to placebo and the strangeness of the process and decided to try it again the next time the migraine came back. That was in 2009 and the migraine has not yet returned. After waiting 2 weeks, I decided to by-pass the placebo effect and use it on my then 2+ year old son who just couldn't be potty trained. After one round, he went 3 weeks without bedwetting , I tapped again and my night wetting troubles were over. Obviously I started getting curious, I began working with friends first and got amazing results even with chronic illnesses - which I didn't know I wasn't even supposed to work with. I bought the DVDs, got my certification, incorporated EFt into corporate trainings and over the years it has just gotten better and better. My company recently won a Government Grant -YouWiN- through which we have been bringing the benefits of EFT to a wider range of people. One setback to my work has always been Wikipedia because that is where company owners first go to check about EFT and the negative article there has brought a lot of initial doubts and resistance. Luckily being a fellow engineer has in some cases made my judgement more trusted than unknown faces on the net. However with the widening reach of our work, Wikipedia needs to take a more scientific look at the results that EFT is getting. I know that 'a new idea expands one funeral time at a time' but we can't wait that long - people are being held in misery and limitations because EFT is kept away from them. So Wikipedia team, do wake up. Thank you.

To deny bioenergetics is very http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/narrow-minded .

Judith McBride ANNAPOLIS, MD
I am a board-certified hypnotist. And because MOST physical diseases stem from unhealthy subconscious perceptions, regression to cause hypnosis can be highly effective in alleviating SO MANY ailments…including cancer, which I experienced personally. It certainly is more logical than poisoning the body to cure it as done in chemotherapy. Standard medicine so often treats the symptoms but rarely resolves the cause of a disease. So why do you scoff at therapies that aim at the root cause.
Most scientists ignored the ideas of Einstein (relativity) and Heisenberg (quantum physics) until they withstood the rigorous testing and were finally garnered Nobel prizes. Unfortunately, there are few scientific studies of alternative healing methods because the standard medicine has the money and the political clout to block it.

Energy Psychology is a powerful tool for releasing and healing trauma, psychological issues and painful emotions. I have found it to be very effective for my psychotherapy patients as well as myself. It is more cost effective than traditional therapy which takes much longer and cannot release trauma from the body's energy system.
Russell Cunningham WONGA PARK, AUSTRALIA
For years I have trusted Wikipedia as a reliable source of information, but no more.
I have used EFT in over 15,000 client hours. Many of these people come to me after years of conventional therapy has failed to resolve their traumas, phobias or other problems, and in most cases EFT gives them rapid lasting relief. My concern is for all the people out there who are suffering needlessly because they were turned away by the biased article in Wikipedia. All attempts to add updated information are blocked. It appears as if Wikipedia is run by skeptics who are unable to see past their biases. As a result I have stopped using Wikipedia and am no longer recommending Wikipedia to my friends and clients.
I hope that this will be resolved soon so that Wikipedia returns to being the trusted source that it once was.
Ronn Young COURTICE, ON, CANADA

Liz Rickert OREGON, IL
EFT has been a blessing in my life. It has helped me deal with work-related stress and allowed me to help others with the similar stress.
The latest peer-reviewed analysis of the evidence-base for EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, or Meridian/Energy/Tapping technique) as an effective psychological therapy can be found here:
Feinstein, D. (in press). Acupoint stimulation in treating psychological disorders: Evidence of efficacy. Review of General Psychology.
EFT Universe also has a good research section which is regularly updated.
Update from Dawson Church, May 2012:
‘EFT Meets APA Standards: A historic moment has arrived, that marks the fruition of an enormous amount of work and persistence by many, many people. This week we changed the EFT Research page to read as follows: “The current status of EFT as an “evidence-based” practice is summarized in this statement in the APA (American Psychological Association) journal Review of General Psychology:
‘ “A literature search identified 50 peer-reviewed papers that report or investigate clinical outcomes following the tapping of acupuncture points to address psychological issues. The 17 randomized controlled trials in this sample were critically evaluated for design quality, leading to the conclusion that they consistently demonstrated strong effect sizes and other statistical results that far exceed chance after relatively few treatment sessions. Criteria for evidence-based treatments proposed by Division 12 of the American Psychological Association were also applied and found to be met for a number of conditions, including PTSD.’ (Feinstein, in press)”
‘This is sober academic language for a seismic shift in the geography of healing. For the past five years, we’ve worked incredibly hard, through unbelievable obstacles, to complete the research required to meet APA Division 12 standards. This milestone, published in an APA journal, marks a tipping point in EFTs credibility. You can now confidently present your EFT Universe certification in Clinical EFT as training in an “evidence-based” practice.’
(Nb: I don’t know if the APA has officially recognised EFT, and thus whether psychologists can get credits for training yet, but it has met the criteria and hopefully this is the next step.)

Been a student of energy medicine approaches for a decade now, and it's appalling that people with allopathic bias are able to mis-represent so blatantly.

It is misleading that despite dozens of studies published in the scientific journals Wikipedia continues to use outdated and biased information about acupressure, energy psychology, EFT etc. Seeing such bias, I become convinced that Wikipedia is not an entirely trustworthy source of information and is influenced by unscrupulous or ignorant people with unclear agendas, and thus I cannot support it.

Because the truth of these heaping therapies must get out to the world as they are currently saving so many lives and could help so may more people. Doctors will use these therapies one day instead of medicating people and supporting the drug companies which are just killing people....which has the biggest death rate in the world...dying from complications from prescribed medication.
Christopher K. Johannes JAPAN
As a clinician and coach, the results using these approaches have been excellent, reliable, and durable across many conditions. The research evidence to date is compelling and there for all to evaluate and replicate. It is both unethical and professionally remiss to attempt any influence that would prevent these kind of healing interventions to reach the people who need or prefer them. Not doing the "homework" on the vast amount of evidence in favor of these approaches is "unscientific", unethical, and irrational.

As an Certified Wellness Practitioner and Executive Life Coach, I have worked this field since 1994. My preferred healing specialty is Faster EFT. After working with hundreds of people on thousands of issues, I have never seen it not reduce or relieve stress, anxiety and other PTSD symptoms allowing both myself and my clients to find emotional freedom and control. I support the movement to get the truth out to the public that healing is about more than taking meds and "dealing with it" at a level you can tolerate. Real healing is available without synthetic drugs. A large part of my practice is serving Licensed Counselors who serve PTSD clients. NLP, Meridian Tapping, EFT, Guided Imagery, Hypnosis are all valid ways to heal.

Many, many holistic approaches to healing work and can be practiced as self-healing. Energy work, for example, has benefited thousands. The stranglehold campaign reminds me of the attempts to stop everyone who promoted the idea of neuro-plasticity. Now we know (quoting Wikipedia) changes in neural pathways and synapses which are due to changes in behavior, environment and neural processes, as well as changes resulting from bodily injury. Neuroplasticity has replaced the formerly-held position that the brain is a physiologically static organ, and explores how - and in which ways - the brain changes throughout life. It is time to open the doors to holistic approaches as well.

As an energy healer I know the impact this modality has on people. They come seeking relief and receive many great benefits. Whether it's going from cancer to cancer free in 3 weeks or no longing needing cortisone shots in their knees to help them walk and everything in between it benefits are amazing. People around the world should know the truth. This is no means knocks out your doctor. After all if it wasn't for the doctor we would not have know a person became cancer free.

Now nothing is 100% and if anyone tells you that it is then you should probably ignore them. The beautiful thing about EFT is you don't have to believe in it to see results. It WORKS... You are doing the world a grave injustice by letting a few negative people make negative claims that just aren't true.

The bias against is EFT & other modalities is unfair. I use it personally and in my practice and the results are wonderful. I'm often working with clients who've gone through years of talking therapies only to find they are suffering with their issues.
EFT works and people should be able to read unbiased information about it and other energy modalities.
Thom Pearson NAESTVED, REGION ZEALAND, DENMARK, DENMARK
The negativly biased opinions from people that by their own admission have NO real experience are the only ones being published - This is more than grossly unfair, it is a dis-service to humanity.
Louise Lee KARS, CANADA
Just this morning, at my walking group, I was able to help, in few minutes with TFT, a man who had an automobile accident last week and was a bundle of nerves, with nightmares and guilt. A few minutes! It works and others should be able to hear the truth about it.
Linda Prenoveau MONTREAL, CANADA
Because regular medecine cannot really help with the problems I have. Everyone should be able to find the scientific truth in Wikipedia.

EFT is the greatest discovery in my life. A valuable tool to use daily. I wish everyone can have the chance to try it and see for himself, and not miss the opportunity hindered by biased opinions of questionable integrity.

I am a practitioner or EFT, chi kung, and acupressure. I know from lengthy, first-hand experience the benefits of energy work.
Alexander Mitrofanov HOVE, UNITED KINGDOM
As a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and at present, a private psychologist, I have witnessed many a time the potency of Energy psychology methods both first hand and with my clients. Therefore I find it appalling how Wikipedia portrays energy psychology methods on its pages due to the unscientific bias introduced by "skeptics" who reject anything that they perceive threatening to their rigid beliefs.
Steven Fenwick OLYMPIA, WA
Please consider the growing body of peer reviewed research that supports the efficacy of energy psychology methods. Your articles should consider the positive evidence as well as any negative evidence.
Janice Brown-Silveira RENO, NV
Energy psychology and it's treatment specialties are more effective than traditional talk therapy for many conditions related to stress and trauma. As a licensed mental health practitioner for over 20 years experience I request that you publicize positive perspectives for energy psychology, emotional freedom techniques and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing.
Keith Hulstaert AUSTRALIA
I have been using EFT for 13 years to good effect. If it didn't work I wouldn't still be doing it. It makes a difference to peoples lives we should be at least encouraging people to explore an alternative that may work for them.
Janice Dietert LANSING, NY
I am an energy practitioner (Reiki Master, ME Certified Practitioner, Holographic Repatterning, and more). I also seek out the scientific basis for any energy modality I use or apply. The fact that I can go to the NIH.gov website and find solid articles as to the efficacy of acpuncture for instance, but we can't maintain the accuracy and scientific validity of what Wikipedia portrays on its site is an atrocity that needs to be corrected...NOW.
Sue Barley WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND
As a PhD scientist I am a great advocate of EFT and other energetic approaches. We are energetic beings made up of particles that vibrate. EFT is a wonderful and magical approach to regaining wellbeing and health. When the energetics behind these other approaches are understood by more people, it will be totally clear as to how things work and why they work like they do. In the meantime it is important to allow balance in the discourse which enables humanity to access things that can help them.
Dana Bentley AUSTIN, TX
As a licensed and practicing psychotherapist who employees Energy Medicine in her practice with many positive results, I am offended by the negative and unscientific matter in Wikipedia regarding various forms of Energy Medicine. In fact, there are many random clinical trials and accompanying peer reviewed articles supporting and validating Energy Medicine. Your attention to this matter will be greatly appreciated.
Judy Steele ST LOUIS PARK, MN
I have tried to use Wikipedia for subjects related to holistic healing and been very disappointed to encounter biased, out-dated and simply wrong information. I'd like that to change!
Leandro Percario SãO PAULO, BRAZIL
This is important to me because I have been using TFT, Thought Field Therapy, to help a lot of traumatized people in Brazil with a very High sucess rate! It is the best therapy I ever meet in my life and in my clients life too. The results are fast and long standing. One example, I treat a woman who were afraid of walk on the street because of a past trauma and wtih only one hour session she were able to walk with no trace of fear.
Robyn Chuter BURRANEER, AUSTRALIA
EFT is simply the most effective technique for healing anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and everyday stress, that I've encountered in 19 years of clinical practice as a naturopath and counsellor. It's outrageous that the Wikipedia deliberately omits mention of the peer-reviewed research on the efficacy of EFT.
jenny copius-peereboom-stegeman NIJMEGEN, NC

Lil Maizer VANCOUVER, WA
As a volunteer for the veterans stress project I invite you to look over the clinical trials on the website and decide for yourself if EFT is effective...personally, I know, I use it with veterans from different eras and levels of discomfort including pain, emotional and mental...give it a fair shake...our results are tangible and greatly out weigh other approaches...we use the same measures as the VA to demonstrate results...:)

Linda Anderson GREAT CHESTERFORD, UNITED KINGDOM
EFT/Meridian Tapping has transformed my life since I came across it 10 years ago, and I've witnessed similar benefits in my family, friends and clients. It's a really powerful tool for life that is easy to learn and can be used by anyone from the very young to the very old. EFT/Tapping and energy healing/energy psychology are cutting-edge developments in human evolution. Clinical trials have shown that EFT/Tapping sends a message to the amygdalla that turns down the stress response, meaning the subject comes out of fight or flight and has access to all of their inner resources. Please catch up, Wikipedia! This is too important to continue disseminating out-of-date information on.
Chris Sweet WOTTON UNDER EDGE, UNITED KINGDOM
I am an EFT practitioner and have seen the benefits to myself and clients. I would not want anyone else to miss the opportunity of at least trying EFT or other energy approaches due to any biased information. If they try and it does not work for them there is no damage, but to miss the opportunity is such a shame.
Lorraine Hall WHITE ROCK, BC, CANADA
This is important to me as I use EFT in individual as well a group therapy and see the amazing results with many people. As well, I often use Wikipedia but I'm using it less as I see the bias in this particular area, and I have to explain it to my clients all the time. For depressed people who already fight negative thinking, this makes it harder for them to get the treatment that could help them.
Julie Weiner LANHAM-SEABROOK, MD Liked 4
I am a licensed mental health counselor specializing in treating anxiety disorders and chronic pain. Energy psychology techniques have been the most valuable contributor to my success with these clients since I started combining cognitive behavioral therapy with biofeedback and neurofeedback. It appears that Wikipedia is allowing its censors to delete references to the peer-reviewed, published research documenting efficacy and reviewing possible mechanisms explaining the effectiveness of these tools. Wikipedia needs a mechanism for preventing censorship that denies readers access to legitimate research findings and healing methods.
Ramona Domander TORONTO, CANADA
This treatment has provided many benefits to clients and can also be used as a self help relaxation method.
nicholas kovacev WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND
EFT is a phenomenal tool for change in every area of human life. I have been using it on myself and as a practitioner and trainer on others almost for a decade and have seen changes that people were not able to achieve in any different way. Self appointed skeptics are often at the level of unconscious incompetence and therefore their input should be removed in order to allow wide audience to know the truth. Results are what matters. Looks like, for some, that is not the case.
Misa Smith OCEANSIDE, CA
To get Wikipedia to disseminate ACCURATE and FACTUAL and RESEARCH-BASED information on EFT, rather than the current negatively-biased opinion masquerading as truth now posted on their website. Military personnel returning from Afghanistan with PTSD deserve to know the truth about what can actually help them. Don't you care about those who have given so much? Don't you feel obligated to get the TRUTH out there so that they no longer need to suffer?
Edward Warnock SOUTH BOSTON, MA
I know for fact that EFT is a valid and truly effective procedure. Furthermore Wikipedia should not be open for any clown to write what they feel in it.
Marianne Wilkins AUSTRALIA
Drugs are not always the best form of treatment and you can put the healing into their own hands.
Kim Cascone PACIFICA, CA

Faith Pomeroy-Ward ROANOKE, TX
I have supported Wikipedia in the past because I thought of it as a trustworthy resource for balanced information. It is shocking that Wikipedia would censor information on healing therapies that have the potential to improve a person's health, especially when conventional treatments fail. Wake up, Wikipedia, and be the powerful source for good information the world needs.
Lydia Proschinger SCHONACH, GERMANY
I feel that surpressing valuable information on how to manage health is crimnal and borders on tyranny.
Clive Boden PORTUGAL
I use wikipedia a lot. When I find biased articles it undermines my trust in all the wikipedia, and I have now resorted to checking articles by verifying with second and third sources. This is surely not what the founder intended.
Daniel Hill KIDDERMINSTER, UNITED KINGDOM
If I wasn;t for EFT I may well by dead by now - by my own hands - and that was after 4 years of conventional "talking" counselling. It's change my life and well over a thousand others I've treated with it since 2006. Here's a lovely testimonial from a recent client of mine...
“I had anorexia initially which became bulimia and a binge eating disorder alternately for twenty six years. I developed social anxiety which lasted around the same amount of time. I was depressed and suicidal also. I underwent numerous therapeutic interventions along with anti depressant medications. I was a patient at the Woodbourne Priory Hospital for my eating disorders and attended The Linden Method residential, along with many other therapies over the years. Nothing worked long term or short term. I spent an absolute fortune looking for answers. Suffice to say, circumstances meant I had to resolve my eating disorder quickly and found Daniel on the internet and booked his Five Session Package Deal to begin with.
I learned that food was not my issue, but that I had been tranquillising my emotions to deal with life. I used to self harm but had since replaced that with food. I made a “Peace List” as he suggested and we began to work through those life long issues to create more ease in my life. Within the first few sessions I had stopped binging on food. After that I found I didn’t feel hungry, stopped weighing myself, starting eating whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted and found I was losing weight and was wearing size 6/8 size clothes and I was not even dieting or exercising! I now eat more than I ever have and have a daily slice of cake with cream every afternoon and it has no bearing on my weight and it does not lead to binging. A miracle in itself! I then decided to continue having more sessions with Daniel after that package of sessions and we dealt with various issues as and when they arose. I actually found myself saying to Daniel at one session that I didn’t think my social anxiety was ever really that big an issue! The work he had done with me was so powerful that I couldn’t recall what it used to feel like to be so socially phobic.
There was one huge dark cloud hanging over me that caused me terrible guilt and embarrassment and I had only ever told one therapist about it in the past and that too only in writing as I could not bring myself to disclose this dark secret that haunted me. I had no intention of telling Daniel but somehow whilst he was doing a mix of EFT, NLP and Hypnosis on me in one particular session and asking me questions to help resolve how I was feeling, this secret came up and with his gentle, caring, unique approach I found myself telling him out loud what I could never tell anyone before! He didn’t judge, criticise or make me feel bad, or blame me, he helped me love and accept myself more than I ever had and understand what actually happened. Since that day I’ve felt calmer, happier, more free and at peace in the way I did as a child. It was so liberating and it has has a knock on effect in every area of my life.
I will continue to work with Daniel as and when I need to, as he has greatly assisted me in moving forward so much already. If anyone is stuck, or has issues they cannot shift no matter how many Therapists or Coaches they may have seen, I would whole heartedly recommend Daniel. He has a unique and powerful way of working that gets to the core of the issue quickly and you do feel the results straight away. He changed my life and I will always be grateful to him for that and the work he does.”

Dylan Larese NESCONSET, NY, NY
The wikipedia entries on psi-research are heavily and demonstrably biased. The information presented therein by the editors is antiquated and/or partial, and is often rife with fallacies in reasoning. In fact, there exists a substantial body of rigorous, tightly controlled research on these subjects published in several peer reviewed, scientific journals. Nevertheless, formal references to such research are almost entirely absent on wikipedia, due to deliberate censorship by the editors. Such suppression of dissent and continued promulgation of severe bias by Wikipedia is simply a scientific injustice. This is especially so when that dissent is founded upon by sound, objective, empirical research.
Daniel Pérez COSTA RICA, COSTA RICA

Lucy Yaldezian SAN RAMON, CA
As an Healing Arts Practitioner for the past 21 years, I have helped hundreds of people heal anxiety, specific and general fears, trauma, obsessive behaviors and thoughts, addictions and other problems and issues through the mindful use of holistic approaches; specifically hypnosis, The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and The Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT). These techniques are easy to learn and use, and have no negative side effects -- only positive ones such as improved sleep and greater confidence. The current Wikipedia prejudice against holistic practices results in the proliferation of ignorance and misinformation.

Our bodies heal themselves, but sometimes benefit from help. Different people benefit from different styles of healing. EFT has helped me heal in many areas of my life. It would be a disservice to portray only skepticism about EFT, without a different point of view. Just because we don't understand the specific mechanism of how EFT works, people all over the world know that it does work. Please don't discourage people from trying something that may be a significant benefit to them. Thank you,

As a licenced psychotherapist according to german laws and working in the german health care, I experienced some of those "holistic" or so called "energy" treatments as highly effective.

It has helped me immeasurably and many members of my family, friends, work colleagues and clients. To report it incorrectly is a complete disservice to humanity. Please get it right.
Barbara June Appelgren CHARLES TOWN, WV
I have been a social worker since 1981 doing therapy with clients. Nothing has been as powerful and quick in dissolving lingering fears, anger, and lack of forgiveness than EFT. It's unfortunate that your respected and admired website should show this harmful prejudice when so many people could benefit from these techniques if only there were intelligent descriptions, explanations, and discourse from people who are expert practitioners. I am 71 years old and have two master degrees. At least represent the expert practitioners.

My research published in peer-reviewed scientific journals while I was a professor at Texas A&M University is being ignored along with dozens of others. People are suffering. Energy psychology techniques offer great benefit. Let's move forward with scientific objectivity. Stop the bias and prejudice.
Helena Buche GERMANY
EFT offers such a powerful tool, not only for the practitioner, but also for clients and everybody else to destress themselves and raise their energy. Simple to use and extremely effective for working with trauma and painful memories or feelings, my experience as an EFT Practitioner has proven to me over and over again, that devastating past experiences can be transformed into positive ones, offering a source of clarity and strength for the individual. It is a shame when prejudice contributes to hindering those who need help from seeking the very help they need.
My suggestion is to send those responsible for their rather unscientific views and reports about EFT to do a year's training with a qualified EFT Practitioner.
We can not know how good EFT is, unless we experience it personally.
Sheila Henry SAN DIEGO, CA

You warn people against using a technique that can help them feel more peaceful and even improve physical health. For shame. Let Wikipedia be an unbiased source of information.

This is important to me because since 1984 I am a health care worker. Eight years ago I learned Emotional Freedom Techniques from Gary Graig.

As a licensed psychologist with 30+ years of experience I am impressed by the scientific evidence in peer reviewed scholarly journals validating my clinical experience that energy psychology methods are effective. This information should be included in any Wikepedia articles concerning energy methods
Amanda Wyatt ARNOLD NOTTINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM
I am passionate about EFT. Many lives have changed through this simple tapping procedure because it clears the emotional charge around negative memories. I see amazing results in my practice every day.
elena teodorescu BUCHAREST, ROMANIA
EFT taught me a great lesson: to not disregard what I don't KNOW or don't UNDERSTAND or just is too SIMPLE!

Herb Ayers PASCO, WA
Thought Field Therapy and EFT are highly effective, scientifically based treatments anyone can use to overcome problems that interfere with daily living activities including the prevention of suicide and other violent acts. I have used TFT in my practice as a counselor for 12 years and know first hand how it helps my clients, my self, and my family.
christine hayes SURREY, CANADA
EFT is awesome, It needs to be mainstream
AUDREY PONGETTI TYLER, TX
I have personally benefitted from EFT therapy. The Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology has made great strides in documenting and validating many of these holistic methods through outstanding scientific research. It is time to let go of the biases that reflect negatively on this therapy.
Chris Trautner LA QUINTA, CA
TFT works, and wikipedia allows people that don't know what they are talking about to post things that are blatant lies, because they have no true knowledge about energy medicine, and they are doing nothing but trying to inflate their egos, and self promote themselves.
Merryla Fidler MONTREAL, UNITED STATES
i believe in E.F.T. Simple.
Bob Bennett GRANDVIEW, MO
I have seen thousands of successes using Energy and Emotional Psychology
Philippe Isler WOLFVILLE, CANADA
I am a clinical psychologist who uses these techniques because they are effective, and because they are often more effective and efficient than any methods currently considered "evidence-based" (which were all once experimental.)
It is important to me that people have access to these methods of relieving suffering and resolving problems. It is also important to me that Wikipedia be a reliable and/or responsive source of information and not controlled by interest groups or individuals.
Richard Anderson BLACKFALDS, CANADA
As I some times use TFT to help the disabled individuals I work with I see it as a sad day when something that really works get trashed in any area of the media.
Sabine Hamma DUBLIN, SEYCHELLES
I would like people to get help through EFT and not to confuse them, that they lose the trust.
Grace Hill CHARING, UNITED KINGDOM
EFT has helped much more than any other so-called scientific modality of healing. The truth will eventually come out, so why not allow it now? What you are afraid of? Or how much are you being paid?
Bob Worthington BLUE SPRINGS, MO
Because holistic approaches work, in many cases much better....

As an EFT practitioner, I have seen people move from years of emotional pain and trauma into a life of peace and productivity, through the active use of EFT/meridian tapping. IT WORKS when so many other things/approaches do NOT!!!
Patsy de Courcy-Ireland PICTON, CANADA
A reference source should be reliable and contain accurate, unbiased information on whatever topic is the subject of the entry.
Jan Swift RICHLAND, WA
Holistic approach to health is effective and safe.
Tina Huang OAK PARK, IL
As a neuroscientist and EFT practitioner, I and my clients have experienced tremendous benefits w/EFT, and fantastic research by Dawson Church, and David Feinstein and many others needs to be seen by the scientific communiity. Science isn't truely science when the AMA and the mainstream journals refuse to read or publish things outside of the Western medical model. Scientific work should be judged on the basis of good scientific methods and NOT preconceived biases. Whenever I would submit an article that was more acceptable to the mainstream, I'd have no problems getting it published, but if it was outside the belief system of the AMA, it would be a massive struggle to have it read. I know that the quality of my work was NOT the deciding force.
Louise Gabrielle TORONTO, CANADA
I am a practitioner of energy medicine and know the uphill battle with mainstream biased attitudes.
Elaine Nitz OLATHE, KS
EFT and other energy clearing techniques have made a huge difference in my life. I don't know how people are able to survive without it. It's an awesome way to release stress, which has been shown to cause all kinds of health issues.

EFT is breathtakingly effective. It is nothing short of a miracle in its effectiveness. Please do not comment about its efficacy without having experienced it yourself.
Rachael Roy CHARLOTTETOWN, CANADA
I have practiced Energy Therapies for the past ten years. It is significantly more effective than talk therapy.
Birgitte Eriksen KøBENHAVN, DENMARK
It is important for all living creatures to enjoy as good health as possible, and to be able to seek information how to achieve it, escpecially as long as the public healthcare system in many/some contries concentrates more on keeping people sick or getting them more sick, maybe out of best knowledge but that will change :-).
Lori Harger TUCSON, AZ

April Rubino MOSCOW, ID
As a therapist, I have helped many people using holistic approaches to healing. These people were not served well by more conventional methods. Our world needs the opportunity to explore, discuss, and embrace new and more effective ways of helping people in mental, physical and emotional pain and imbalance.

Nina Price PALO ALTO, CA
I love Wikipedia but it's only as good as it is accurate. Please offer accurate information about holistic approaches, energy medicine, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine which are all beneficial modalities. Offer far more beneficial than Western medicine which is often quite flawed these days!!!
Linda Smarrella TIJERAS, NM
I am a psychotherapist who uses EFT and other Energy Medicine techniques with great success with my clients. I hope you will open your minds to new processes that WORK!!
David Gruder SAN DIEGO, CA
How can Wikipedia be right to censor these methods when mental health professionals (psychologists, social workers, professional counselors, drug & alcohol counselors, and psychiatric nurses, can receive continuing education credit for receiving training in them? Are you really intending to take a stand that you are wiser about this that, say, the American Psychological Association?
Judith Morales BROWNSVILLE, TX
Holistic alternatives work when conventional medicine does not. The world needs options not restricitons.
Daylle Schwartz NY, NY
I use EFT an other holistic approaches for myself and with my clients and find them very effective. People should be abler to get accurate info about them on Wikipedia.

It's time to include the scientific research on holistic healing methods, including Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). As a mental health professional I've seen amazing and lasting results for clients suffering from PTSD. Please update the information on your Website to include unbiased results.

I use EFT and have seem great changes for good using these skills.
Virginia Dassler LARGO, FL
EFT literally changed my life since 2000 and I have experienced seeing changes and healing's with EFT. Accurate information should should be what everyone reads, there is plenty of it. Clearing the past, fears and post traumatic stress is essential and EFT is one of the most beautiful tools for getting it done.
Marlene Cameron CALGARY, CANADA
I have found energy psychology techniques to have profound results with clients over the past seven years and wish to see these modalities given science-based representation.

Beth in Boca BOCA RATON, FL
Twyla Wilson OKLAHOMA CITY, OK
I am an acupuncturist, homeopath, and laser light therapist. I use WIKI often and donate to them regularly. While I love WIKI it is very frustrating when I read articles on acupuncture, homeopathy and light therapies that I know are wrong, jaded or are obviously written and edited by people who are ignorant of the mechanisms of these modalities and how they operate, as well as the benefits to users. That WIKI supports this science-as-religion-fundamentalism which is a relic of a bygone age, based on a Newtonian world view is preposterous! We need WIKI to step into the 21st century world of quantum physics and the miracles of what is possible, today. The evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of quantum field healing. We the leaders in this field need to step up to the plate and get the truth out to the public. They deserve to benefit from all the great things we have to offer.
Suzanne Manning EYEMOUTH, UNITED KINGDOM
This is important to me because I am an EFT practitioner and trainer - I know that EFT works and helps people to bring about significant positive changes in their lives and so deserves true and honest representation. To do otherwise is to deliberately offer misleading information.
Tina Marian NORTHBORO, MA
I am a Registered Nurse and an EFT Practitioner and I can vouch for the effectiveness of EFT in stress reduction
Eric Weinstein RESTON, VA
Wikipedia is unfairly biased against emerging treatments that already have significant evidence of being highly effective, especially for conditions (such as PTSD) that are difficult to address and becoming a national crisis.
Linda Easthhouse CALGARY, CANADA
Energy medicine has a strong scientific basis but even if it didn't, the negative bias in Wiki is prevents people from exploring the edge of what is known to develop more and better knowledge. This is just censorship. But considering that the Rothschild empire owns Wiki I can't say I am surprised.
Lynda Effertz FORT WORTH, TX
As our world dissolves into further chaos, it is unfortunate that a holistic approach that has scientific evidence behind it would not be applauded with great zeal. I understand that there are many fake (just fill in the blank), whethere in business, healing, etc. But I ask you to please investigate further and consider lightening your stance. Thanks, Lynda Effertz, M.Ed,m LPC, CMH

I have been a follower of Gary Craig and his daughter Tina as they presented EFT for years.
I've also been a body-work practitioner/student most of my adult life.
There are both evidence-based and anecdotal-based involved in viewpoints discoursing holistic approaches to healing. It is time that Wikipedia caught up with the "flow" so to speak.
Amrita Whitman VALLEY VILLAGE, CA
I have personally experienced tremendous benefits with EFT for various issues like physical pain and grief. I use Wikipedia all the time, but I won't donate any money until their policies are changed.
Barbara Karas DURHAM, NC
As a user of Wikipedia and holistic medicine, I have been very disappointed in the information provided on wikipedia about alternative or holistic approaches to medicine that may have caused people not to investigate these proven modalities.
James Gardner EXETER, UNITED KINGDOM
EFT helped me recover from depression and PTSD when nothing else did. People need to know what's available!
Rev. Dr. Heather Fraser Fawcett SAINTE-ANNE-DE-BELLEVUE, CANADA
I have provided psychotherapy and counseling including various modalities of energy psychology and energy medicine to clients who are survivors of rape (often gang-rape), and organized violence, including torture, since 2006. My experience has been that clients who have used some energy work techniques have benefitted the quickest and the most. The same may be said for other clients suffering from a range of mental health issues. I believe we all want the best for our clients. It seems though that the true spirit of science has been lost to the detriment of those suffering from mental illness around the world.
Please correct misleading and biased information on Wikipedia regarding energy modalities.
Rev. Dr., M.Div., Psy.D.
Lisa Lindsey BOULDER, CO
These techniques have helped so many people near and dear to me. People who don't understand it, don't believe in it, but are so desperate to improve their situations that they will "try anything". And wonders of wonders this works. Why would you block others from potential relief from pain, suffering, trauma, and limiting beliefs? You could change the world here- please reconsider getting the accurate word out! Thank you.
Catherine Vartuli RICHARDSON, TX
EFT has made a huge difference to me, and as a PhD research scientist I have seen the studies that prove what I have experienced.

Milena Galbraith MARSTONS MILLS, MA
As a licensed psychotherapist and educator in practice for more than 35 years, I was delighted to discover energy psychology in 2000 because it made my work with clients much more effective.
I rely on Wikipedia for reference and information many times a week and have consistently given money to support it. However, reading the biased articles about various energy psychology subjects has made me questions the reliability of everything else I read on wiki. What a disappointment to discover that I cannot trust your process to provide an open unbiased evaluation of important matters.
Please, intervene and allow a more considered, more reasoned, less biased reporting of all subjects including energy psychology. Please, win my trust and respect back!!!
Helen Ryle TRALEE, IRELAND

Marian Condon RN, D.Ed. WRIGHTSVILLE, PA
Mr. Wales - Energy healing is not just so much hokum. I know from personal and professional experience that some forms of it are powerful modalities. The research that supports its efficacy is now irrefutable. Remember: there was a time when germ theory was new, and a time before that when Copernicus' ideas were widely ridiculed. Do please investigate before you condemn.
Luanne Panacek TAMPA, FL
I first encountered energy psychology while going through a very serious personal trauma. After being a traditional therapist for over 30 years I was blown away by the almost immediate effectiveness of this technique and have gone on to obtain my certification in this area and now treat others using Meridian Tapping.

I have worked as a clinical psychologist in the NHS for 42 years, and have practiced many conventional psychological therapies. I have used EFT and other energy psychology methods for the last 15 years and have found them to be the most powerful, rapid, thorough yet gentle approaches that I have ever used. The research is now confirming the clinical experience of using these methods. Wikipedia should address the misleading representation of these methods if it is to retain any credibility.
Ann Adams SILVER CREEK, GA

It works. Remember three recent Nobel prize winners, Dr. Shechtman (2011) and Drs. Warren and Marshall (2005) were ridiculed and shunned by their peer when they first introduced their theories and research results. Unfortunately, energy techniques and other CAM modalities still receive the same bigoted, unscientific treatment despite successful efficacy studies.

Pamela D AURORA, CO
I am so glad there is a petition to Wikipedia, finally, about any holistic methodology. I noted the unconscionable negative bias some time ago, and stopped even bothering to use wiki to find information about such topics. Knowing that those entries (among others) are so inaccurate and narrow minded has made me question the usefulness of the whole site may be compromised has led me to virtually never check it first any more. That's a real shame, and very sad commentary on something that showed such promise at its' inception.

You can deny the truth all you want but it remains the truth.
Gabriel Donohoe CAVAN, IRELAND
I have personally seen EFT work so very effectively with so many people and am aware of thousands of positive testimonials from elsewhere.
I find it incredible and disgusting that such a biased and negative view on EFT should be published by Wikipedia who seem to rely on such discredited "experts" like Stephen Barrett of Quackwatch, Ernst, and Singh, (well-known shills of medical vested interests).
It is articles like this that damage the integrity of Wikipedia and prevent many would-be donors from supporting the organization.
Wikipedia really needs to be more balanced.

every radical change through the history of science has been met with scepticism.

Please CORRECT this. EFT and Emotrance are such big support to people, it is the responsibility of Wikipedia to inform them correctly!

I have been using EFT in my practice since 2005 and have had nothing but positive results with it. I don't particulalrly care what other people may say but what I do care about is a correct and fair judgement. Negatives do not prevent me getting positive results. If you don't want to believe it thats fine, the proof of the pudding as they say is doing and finding out for yourself.

EFT has always worked for me and I am helping others.

Hildegard Groves GAITHERSBURG, MD
I learned about EFT, one modality of Energy Medicine/Psychology, 10 years ago and have used it for phobias, insomnia, and anxiety. It works. I have since trained to eventually become certified. The truth about the efficacy of energy therapies is in the testimony of those who have tried them. These therapies are part of a strong and emerging field that has been developed and created by some very gifted folks. I believe that Wikipedia needs to keep up with the times, and explore and research a subject such as this one much more before broadcasting their "opinions"!

EFT is an amazing healing tool and I have transformed my life , the life of friends and families and of clients.
The review on Wikipedia do not reflect the real and proved value of how transformative and beneficial EFT is.
The present review is negative and unfair and needs to be removed so that the world can really have an overall true perspective rather than one that is narrow mixed and biased.
Sara Bern STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, SWEDEN
With help of EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique, I got rid of my food intolerance overnight. As an amateur, I help my three kids cure themselves of 15-20 food allergies and food intolerances each. I help people remove emotional as well as physical issues on a daily basis using EFT. The scientific evidence is now backing up the wast empirical data compiled to date. Refer to EFTUniverse.com for latest research status. The data can easily be checked at its respective sources. I am an engineer, and have to admit I was very skeptical of EFT at first. I no longer doubt of its efficacy often far exceeding conventional treatments.

EFT is a profoundly helpful tool, when used in conjunction with Conventional Western Medicine. It also augments the proven healing effects of 'sound talk therapy'. Thomas Hara, M.D. encourages "All Problems are psychological but all solutions are spiritual." EFT is a powerful spiritual energy tool which can augment the healing of a great variety of personal issues as well as community and relational strife. Our hurting world needs every tool available which relaxes people and helps them gain the profound power of their potential for emotional intelligence.
Natalia Sanchidrian Polo SPAIN

Thanks!
Karen Hilts ST. CATHARINES, CANADA
I have seen the amazing use of EFT and the outcomes have been outstanding. Its time that people recognize the shift that's happening towards alternative practices and stop suppressing it. Its better to work together for the health of people along with mainstream medicine. Put some good words out into the universe on EFT and other alternative fields. Get the facts straight about it so wikipedia is a more authentic and genuine resource.

Christine Disant CORK, IRELAND, IRELAND
Until I read EFT's description on Wikipedia, I used to trust Wikipedia as a fair source of information. However I cannot trust Wikipedia anymore. For anybody who has experienced and benefited from EFT, it is obvious that this entry is extremely misleading. As a scientist at heart, I understand empirical data is insufficient. However in this case "empirical data" is showing tremendous results in reducing PTSD in cases as extreme as Rwanda genocide survivors (projectlightrwanda.com), War veterans (http://www.operation-emotionalfreedom.com) to name but a few. It also supports school killing survivors in Newton Connecticut, Earthquake Survivors in Haiti, not even mentioning the millions of people around the world, cross culture, who benefit from it daily in less extreme, but still painful situations. Even though EFT does not claim to be a medical procedure, medical benefits are highlighted by a growing number of scientific, double blind studies. The wikipedia article about EFT is a disgrace for not reflecting any of these facts, thus preventing readers from finding a potential solution to their suffering. Is Wikipedia really independent? I wonder is "the Skeptical enquirer" is a more valid scientific publication than the Journal of Clinical Psychology, the APA journals or the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease. Why are these not quoted? Wikipedia was a beautiful endeavor to begin with, please keep it that way. Thank you.

I have been using this gentle and non intrusive technique for over 12 years and helped people recover from post traumatic stress and many emotional issues.

To be fair and unbiased, Wikipedia needs to draw from the full range of discourse on any controversial topic. Skeptics are entitled to their views, but why not have separate pages devoted to different sides of the debate so that contributors on both sides can promote their cases and comment on opposing theories? If this is not done, Wikipravda - sorry, Wikipedia, becomes a tool for propaganda. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? (To paraphrase, who will censor the censors?)

Wikipedia suffers from "Alchemist Denial" throughout. Which is deleting the fact about many highly rated people, for example Francis Bacon, the so called "father of modern science" who was also a metaphysician and an alchemist.
This is a big part of this wilful editing of anything that is against the belief systems of the "ruling Wiki class" - deleting of actual evidence is NOT GOOD SCIENCE.
EFT and modern energy work in general is another example of this much deeper problem.
Perhaps by righting the wrong for EFT a first step to a more fair, balanced and fact based spirit on these topics.

Mr. Wales, Wikipedia should be unbiased and make available to the public honest, transparent information. Your writing on EFT does not reflect that. I have used EFT since 2001, and I can assure you that with 25 years in practice, I would not do so unless it worked successfully. Therapists are the true judge of any treatment. They are the front-line to helping patients/clients. Please would you adjust the anomaly on your site. To assist you, I have posted some links below that will endeavour to correct this information posted on your site.

On Monday October 29 2013, Blue Knot Day, the Hon. Mark Butler MP, Federal Minister for Mental Health, launched the Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (ASCA) Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery; Authors: Dr Cathy Kezelman and Dr Pam Stavropoulos. You are able to download the guidelines here - http://www.asca.org.au/guidelines These guidelines have received favourable response worldwide. The guidelines commented on the enormous societal cost of complex developmental trauma and for a period of decades, eclipsed by a biological psychiatry infused with a focus on genetics, neurotransmitters, psychotropic medications and a belief that mental illnesses were “brain diseases”. The report underlines the anomaly that outcome research is problematic in many respects. It raises queries about `evidence-based’ treatment so-called. It makes the point that lack of the status of `evidence-based’ does not itself equate to suspect treatment. Insistence that treatments be `evidence-based’ can also wrongly imply the superiority of treatments which new research insights are calling into question.

Holistic healing approaches have produced significant improvements for clients, when used in conjunction with traditional medical interventions, and have showed enormous success.

I was introduced to EFT a little over 3 years ago after more than 10 years in traditional "talk therapy". I had been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Distress Disorder and was told it was treatable, but NOT curable. Now after 3 years of EFT, not only am I completely symptom free from PTSD, I am also a trained EFT practitioner with close to 400 client hours-clients who had also been in "talk therapy" for years and told their conditions were incurable. EFT work has changed their lives as positively, profoundly and permanently as it has mine.

There are 54 peer reviewed and published studies of the effects of EFT. With Generalized Anxiety Disorder, N=29,000, duration of the study was 14 years. 76% of the experimental EFT group had a complete remission with 12 sessions. In the study in the Seattle VA, 86% of the experimental group, of veterans with severe PTSD, eliminated the criteria for the PTSD, in 6 sessions. Your article is dishonest and fraudulent. You tell people that this is the people's forum for sharing information, yet you have blocked some of the worlds best research scientists from modifying the article. Your blatant dishonesty, causes large numbers of people, great harm. Hundreds of thousands of people could be eliminating the enormous suffering in their lives. When they read your article, they are being fooled. They are missing the best opportunity to relieve their suffering available on the planet today. The only beneficiaries are the top pharmaceutical companies, who already make more profit than all other industries combined. The time to stop this travesty is now.

I also have had the honor of working with war stress with Veterans and their relief cannot be understated. There is more and more empirical studies being done and completed. This is just typical human behavior in not embracing what works. All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed (or denied). Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

I am constantly convinced BY MY CLIENTS of the immediate improvements in their emotional equilibrium, stress levels and mood. I have often said that I would not practice without it. If this out-of-hand debunking would persuade anyone to pass by the potential benefits to them and everyone around them, it is a tragedy. Not to mention, as you say, the world-wide research amassing that demonstrates, if not proves, the effectiveness of these techniques.

I am a retired general, vascular, and trauma surgeon, and an M.D. of 36 years of training and experience and practice. I left a successful surgical practice to offer holistic lifestyle counseling to clients in 2001. Part of my services include energy healing techniques, which are very effective in assisting clients' health issues. The human body and being is an electromagnetic field. The past and present research which supports the validity of energetic healing techniques is a large body of information which should be brought forward and taught in all healing paradigms. The current allopathic approach to human health is highly flawed because it attempts to override the human being's innate healing intelligence with polypharmacy approaches and interventional techniques. While some allopathic approaches are valuable and life saving, they are incomplete without an offering of native biochemical and bioenergetic support.

I have personally benefited from energy therapies, and used EFT to heal from physical and emotional pain.
Andy Sirois DENVER, CO
Healthcare provider, in support of non-invasive healing and preventive medicine!
Gayle Yerxa GRANDE PRAIRIE, CANADA
I would be very sick if I wasn't using alternative methods. Western medicine can't find out what I need to know to improve my health.
Marika Berman SAN JOSE, CA
People should be able to view accurate information and up to date scientific data, as our knowledge of holistic healing techniques expands.
Sunny van Vlijmen KINGSTON, NJ
This is important to me, because I have experienced miraculous results with energy healing methods not only in regard to myself but also in regard to hundreds of clients I have worked with. As a naturopath who wanted to make sure not be looked at as a quack (which can easily happen), I used to only practice well-established healing methods such as TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Classical Homeopathy and other well established means of healing, but truth be told, only when I incorporated energy healing did true healing happen - and quickly, too! As a former 'doubting Thomas' myself, I urge you to listen to what professionals and lay people alike have to report and allow this to open and change your mind.
Brenda Davidson GRANDE PRAIRIE, CANADA
the misinformation is doing a great disservice to any and all who are interested in pursuing complementary medicine alternatives.
Tara Greenway BROOKLYN, NY
Energy healing has been the only effective treatment for my migraines and several other significant issues in my life. I know hundreds of others who have been helped by energy medicine. Energy medicine terms should have objective rather than biased definitions in Wikipedia.
Mary Stafford ORO VALLEY, AZ
It is my passion to get the benefits of Emotional Freedom Techniques out to everyone!
Cathy Campion PHILADELPHIA, PA
I have participated in EFT with my cousin, who is certified in EFT and have had many good results from this therapy. I continue to use EFT on my own and always have good results. This needs to be made known to people so that they have an alternative to medicine, which is not natural and usually has many side effects causing more problems than help.
Tina Craig COULTERVILLE, CA
Because I have seen grest results with alternative methods and have been disappointed by western medicine.
Beth E. Baker RICHLAND CENTER, WI

Joanne Karpinen OKEMOS, MI
Because we at ACEP have helped thousands of people end their suffering and be able to enjoy life again. I've witnessed it repeatedly first-hand. Why would we not want others to have access to such powerful healing modalities! Prozac + Abilify + Xanax is not the answer, my friends!
steven kessler RICHMOND, CA
As a therapist for 30 years, EFT is the most useful tool for healing that I have ever encountered.
Grier Cundill ESTACADA, OR
I learned how to do EFT from an internet site that provided a free manual. It looked interesting and fun. I tried it and experienced immediate change in my life. I showed it to my wife and soon thereafter to a visiting friend. Both experienced immediate and profound changes in their lives. Since then, I have introduced it to countless individuals and have never had anything but at least a degree of positive change and most often, the changes are noteworthy to profound. This simple little tool has the capacity to change a traumatized world, person by person. And then this: “If we want to set out on the aruous search for the truth, we must all summon up the courage to leave the lines along which we have thought until now and as the first step begin to doubt everything that we previously accepted as correct and true. Can we still afford to close our eyes and stop up our ears because new ideas are supposed to be heretical and absurd?”
Lori Hanson OSSEO, WI
the true meaning needs to be out there for people to understand/
Sherrie Smith FRANKLIN, WI
EFT is the first modality I have found in 40 years of being a RN that actually works toward healing instead of treating the symptoms of diseases as western medicine does. Call one of us & allow us to show you what EFT is and what EFT can do!
Marilee Jones NEW YORK, NY
Let's all just tell the truth.
Peggy Mangan PIGEON, MI
There are many avenues on the path to healing.
Detlev Tesch GERMANY
I have experienced these modalities to be effective for myself and many students and clients.
Those "censors" on Wikipedia are not only sceptic (which would at the least allow for a possibility of the modalities actually working) they are, in my opinion, right out prejudiced and unfair.
Claiming something was not scientifically prooven and therefor dismissing it is no proof of it being wrong. it may not have been researched at all. Or the scientific findings may even be wrong. For a long time it was a scientific "fact" that gastric ulcers could not be caused by bacteria. Helicobacter pilori did not care and did its thing anyway.
So, let us be openminded and democratic. Sometimes there is great human value in giving the benefit of the doubt.

Jean Davies MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM
Hear hear!!! Always gets me so angry and annoyed when I read anything on Wikipedia on these subjects. Even the language used puts an unacceptable spin on them. I do use Wikipedia, but I don't trust it much. Scepticism works both ways!! Sort yourselves out. And remember, the scientific method you put so much faith in is extremely flawed.
Diane Smith SEVERN, MD
As a nurse, I participate in amazing healings for acute, traumatic, and infectious diseases. However, our current state of traditional healthcare does not do well to support chronic diseases and emotional care. As also a holistic nurse and 'patient', I am continually amazed at what energy medicine, energy psychology, essential oils, etc do so excellently to heal.Clients look to Wikipedia for information and they should receive the best we have to offer.
Adrian Melero MIAMI SPRINGS, FL
I practice this in my office, see proven results on a daily basis, and get reimbursed by insurannce for this.
Christine Mallalieu WIGAN, UNITED KINGDOM
This is important to me because it is so simple and it works. There are no contraindications and it is something people can do to help themselves.
Nancy Porter-Steele HALIFAX, N.S., CA
I know from much experience that energy psychology methods are rapidly effective for many persons. Their wider use will result in reduction of suffering for many who otherwise will not be helped.
Monique Chabot SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA
I have used, and still do, energy psychology modalities with clients in my practice as a facilitator in personal growth to inner peace. The results obtained have been outstanding. For the energy medicine with the allopathic medicine to learn to work hand in hand can only be beneficial to people in need. There is a difference between not believing in something and denigrate it, it is ignorance.
Janet Stephan MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
Energy medicine/healing is my professional field. It is so powerful to help create wellbeing on all levels with out drugs. It empowers people to know they hold the key to their own highest wellbeing and joy. Correct and up to date information needs to be available for all.
D. E-Platt POINT PLEASANT, PA
Because as both a massage therapist of over 20 years & being a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner, I've personally seen what a difference the support of holistic healing arts can make in the quality of life for those who experience them.
Safaya Salter GLOUCESTERSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM
This is such important and effective work which has helped millions across the world and it deserves to be recognised and accurately represented
Erik Zoeteweij CHAVANNES-DE-BOGIS, SWITZERLAND
These techniques have often been found to be extremely beneficial in many ways to many people's emotional and physical wellbeing, whether or not scientists know why, and readers of wikipedia are being misled and driven away from them on false pretense
Steve Wells AUSTRALIA
Just want to see a fair representation of peer-reviewed research which has been done.
Anna Paulina Eklof BORGA, FINLAND
I have personally had countless proofs of situations were a holistic approach has worked just as well or better than traditional medicine. And of course situations of vice verse. Both respective schools have their strengths a n d their weaknesses. They should work together instead of fighting each other. That would be the best for everyone.
Alex Kent EASTBOURNE, UNITED KINGDOM
Wikipedia is too biased against Emotional Freedom Techniques and it is totally wrong to include research that shows EFT to be ineffective and ignore research that shows EFT to be effective. Wikipedia should offer a balanced viewpoint so as not to mislead visitors.
Yvonne Toeset AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS
I'm a EFT practitioner and trainer. Research has proven that EFT works. We need profound information on these new techniques on the internet so that people are well informed.

I am an MD with a number of health problems. EFT has been extremely helpful for me to clear emotional issues, skin problems,and I lost 50 pounds of weight using EFT. Years ago there was an informative useful description of EFT in Wikipedia. More recently the description has turned much less useful and more biased against this wonderful simple technique which helps so many in my community

Peter Donn KINGS LANGLEY, UNITED KINGDOM
The new methods have the power to effect dramatic positive change around the world. I have had personal experience of these methods and worked with thousands of individuals using them with amazing effect in most cases. These methods work dramatically better than you would expect from placibo and science is validating them. They need accurate and objective representation in Wikipedia.
vedrana mestrovic SPLIT, CROATIA
We obviously need change in the way we perceive our body and soul. Modern medicine is creating the battle which they are obliged to lose in advance, creating more sick people. We have to be healthy to enjoy this one time chance called life. Let us open the door of freedom.
Carol Gordon UCKFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM
Emotional Freedom Technique has saved my life! Don't deny it to others.
Erin Muldoon Stetson CHICAGO, IL
I am an EFT Practitioner and a Reiki Master. I am a results oriented practical person who chooses to heal people using modalities that work!!!! When a wonderful resource, such as Wikipedia, does not support my work that is changing lives, I feel like it keeps people in pain through their skepticism. There is credibility in Wikipedia, and I would very much value a change. Thanks!!!!!!
Rachel Whalley SEATTLE, WA
As a practitioner and a client of holistic healing and alternative medicine techniques, I want people to have accurate information about different approaches to healing.
valerie chater WOODBRIDGE, UNITED KINGDOM
It is my understanding and my experience that we are energetic beings who respond positively and usually instantaneously to energetic healing. What I've read in Wikipedia on Thought Field Therapy is unbelievably negative and misleading. Let truth out!

I believe that the pharmaceutical industry is funding radical "skeptics" to distort information on most forms of complimentary healing. This has been going on too long, and undermines Wikipedia
Judy Zobrosky BOULDER CREEK, CA
I work in energy psychology with EFT and have seen the amazing success rates as well as being familiar with the science behind such modalities.
Carol Henderson OVERLAND PARK, KS
I use EFT with fantastic results every day. I ask people to look it up before they come in, and if they look at Wikipedia, they think I am crazy to be doing a technique that has been proved not to work, which is not true.
Dr. Art Martin FOLSOM, CA
Free open discussion of all forms of healing and medicine. When you view the success factor of conventional medicine which is about 35% you wonder why people are opposed to alternative medicine. The number are showing that alternative medicine is moving ahead of conventional medicine.

Satinder Bhalla NEW DELHI, INDIA
Wikipedia is widely used and trusted. Unfortunately, much of the information related to holistic approaches to healing is biased, misleading, out-of-date, or just plain wrong. For five years, repeated efforts to correct this misinformation have been blocked and the Wikipedia organization has not addressed these issues. As a result, people who are interested in the benefits of Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology, and specific approaches such as the Emotional Freedom Techniques, Thought Field Therapy and the Tapas Acupressure Technique, turn to your pages, trust what they read, and do not pursue getting help from these approaches which research has, in fact, proven to be of great benefit to many. This has serious implications, as people continue to suffer with physical and emotional problems that might well be alleviated by these approaches.
Larry Sanger, co-founder of Wikipedia, left the organization due to concerns about its integrity. He stated: "In some fields and some topics, there are groups who 'squat' on articles and insist on making them reflect their own specific biases. There is no credible mechanism to approve versions of articles.”
This is exactly the case with the Wikipedia pages for Energy Psychology, Energy Medicine, acupuncture, etcetera, which are currently skewed to a negative, unscientific view of these approaches despite numerous rigorous studies in recent years demonstrating their effectiveness. These pages are controlled by a few self-appointed “skeptics” who serve as de facto censors for Wikipedia. They clothe their objections in the language of the narrowest possible understanding of science in order to inhibit open discussion of innovation in health care. As gatekeepers for the status quo, they refuse discourse with leading edge research scientists and clinicians or, for that matter, anyone with a different point of view. Fair-minded referees should be given the responsibility of monitoring these important areas.
I pledge not to donate to your fundraising efforts until these changes have been made.
in love light gratitude

Numerous alternative healing approaches have proven to bring relief without negative side effects even with severe problems such as PTSD in combat veterans. Accurate information about the real value and application of these techniques can save lives.
Michael DeMolina ANCHORAGE, AK
Wikipedia's stated ethos is one of democracy, the open dissemination of information. Unfortunately, their editorial process has become quite autocratic, and is now untenable for areas such as holistic healthcare, which is a growing field that has reams of scientific evidence to support it. Energy Psychology methods are shown as valid and reliable in study after study. Mr. Wales, review the rule set for editors, so arbitrary measurements such as seniority can no longer trump science. Thank you.
Robin Bila MOUNT LAUREL, NJ
