Two hours ago I became the CFT patient. I slipped on black ice and my right elbow and back of my head fell to the pavement hard. I came inside and checked that my brain was still moving. My wife stopped the bleeding from the back of my head and I told her to do CFT. She has had no training, but I told her to just gently hold my elbow. Immediately my arm went up to the position where I had fallen 10 minutes ago. The strain was fierce, and I was totally reliving the experience physically and emotionally. I had her hold the back of my head and chest and I immediately went into whiplash from the accident. She repeated these two procedures about 4-5 times until the strain was out. I then checked my brain cycle. It has been 1200 seconds for 6 plus years; it still remained at 1200 seconds. Nice….I wonder if that structural immunity discussed in the research article applies to 67-year-olds? The point of this story is to honor the medical golden hour. Apply CFT after trauma as soon as possible before the body begins to adapt and compensate. More importantly, this is the main principle about the work at birth. CFT ideally needs to be done minutes after birth. The final question is what do people do without CFT? Answer: they get tighter and can lose body function over time. For practitioners you never know when CFT will help you.
