Body to face an external threat-think of a tiger coming after your ancient ancestor. All th body’s defense systems are turned on to support either fighting or fleeing from the danger. Your adrenaline pumps, your muscles tense, and your blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugar all rise to give you extra energy to meet the challenge.
The stressors in the ancient days were days were very real threats to survival. Today, however, the fight or flight response is rarely activated by a physical threat. Most of our fight or flight responses today are triggered internally, as in the case that someone experiences a physical response to a trigger. For example, if you have a fear of dogs and one comes near you, you have activated your fight or flight response.
For many of us, the internally generated stress response is triggered by a negative memory or thought that has its roots in past trauma or conditioned learning from childhood. The stress response in the body takes the same form, whether the trigger is a tiger (external) or a negative memory (internal). The adrenaline flows, the heart races, and so on.
You might be saying, “My body doesn’t go into fight or flight over all these little events,” but in fact it does! It’s not the adrenaline and cortisol rush you’d get if you were chased by a tiger; it’s a lower-grade response. But when you add up hundreds or thousands of these responses in a given week or month, the cumulative effect on the body and mind is massive. The ongoing fight or flight response leaves us worn down, sick, upset, overweight, stressed out and just generally unhappy with our life situations.
What tapping does, with amazing efficiency, is halt the fight or flight response and reprogram the brain and body to act and react differently.[CITATION Nic13 \l 1033 ]
