Nail Biting Archives - Thought Field Therapy Center (TFT)

I have not had the urge to bite chew or rip any skin of my fingers since TFT treatment

Dear Caroline E. Sakai PhD TFTdx, VT,

Subject: Testimony in reference to Thought Field Therapy

For about 30 years I struggle with biting the skin around my nails. From my internet research it is called Onychophagia or compulsive nail biting any amount of stress made me chew. It got to a point where I was ashamed of showing my hands to anyone. When my hands got wet or immersed in water for long periods of time the skin appearance was something I became very aware of. I will wear band aids, gloves or just walk around with my hands in fist. At some points I will bite so much of the skin of that my fingers will bleed.

After being your patient for some time and having had many treatments of TFT for various other problems I decided to talk to you about this problem. We had one treatment for it. I have not had the urge to bite chew or rip any skin of my fingers since. Even if I put my fingers near my mouth I do not feel like doing any of what would have been normal for me.

I still experience stress in my life and even under the most pressure I still don’t revert back to the behavior.

I will like to thank you for your assistance in helping me overcome this problem.

Best regards,
(Male, 30’s, 9 months post Tx)

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.

Sincerely,
(Female, 30’s)
