Host Sutree interviews Laurie Ogle on EFT and addiction recovery.
Laurie Ogle has spent the last two years working and studying with Lori Lorenz of the EFT Training Center for Trauma and Abuse in Southern Oregon. She has also spent the last twenty years involved with AA on her own path to recovery. After relapsing four times Laurie came across EFT, also known as Meridian Tapping, and it changed her life forever. Laurie states that while AA is very good in many ways for recovery, it does not address childhood trauma and abuse, which can sometimes be at the root of addictions. EFT facilitated her own recovery in incredble and transformative ways. As Laurie says, "It saved my life".
