BRAIN SCAN NOTES The profile shown for this
patient is typical of generalized anxiety
disorder (GAD) patients in the South America
study who responded positively to the
stimulation of acupoints.
Shifts toward normal levels of wave frequency
ratios in the cortex correlated with a decrease
in the intensity and frequency of GAD symptoms.

GAD patients treated with Cognitive Behavior
Therapy showed a similar progression, but It

frequencies
184

GAD patients treated with Cognitive Behavior
Therapy showed a similar progression, but It
required a longer period of time for the frontal
cortex to get to near-normal ratios of wave
frequencies, and the normalization of the ratios
tended to revert toward pre-treatment levels a
year after the end of the psychotherapy much more
frequently than they did for the energy treatment
group.

medications tended to show little or no cortex
normalization

MEDICATION vs. TAPPING Generalized anxiety
disorder patients treated with anti-anxiety
medications tended to show little or no cortex
normalization
even though symptoms were reduced while the drug
was being taken.
This suggests that the medication is suppressing
the symptoms without addressing the wave
frequency imbalances.
