Dear Dr. Sakai
Since I was 18 years old Trichotillomania has run my life. I lived a life of self-hatred and shame and felt weak that I could not control this disease. After my recent visits with you I feel like a new person and finally have the control I have always yearned for. Working with you through Thought Field Therapy I have been able to relax and deal with the urges and anxiety when they occur. I just go through the TFT routine and the negative feelings start to subside. As a result of this therapy these feelings also occur much less frequently. With the help of TFT and along with the avoidance of the foods and beverages that were found to be toxic to my body, I have had a full set of eyelashes and nails for 3 months now. I cannot explain how good this feels, and the urge to pull or bite is so remote.
Here is an article I found on the Internet about Aspartame and its effects on our bodies. Yikes! I actually ate Aspartame by mistake the other day in a bag of candy and I could feel that urge and anxiousness soar to its former heights. I did control the urge, but realized how much avoiding those toxic things really is important for my well being. I thank you for all you have done for me.
