    Eutaptics or Faster EFT, by Robert Gene Smith has been helping so many overcome the symptoms of PTSD among many other s physical/memtal symptoms…and VERY QUICKLY. Are veterans offered instructions on how to incorporate EUTAPTICS (faster EFT) into their mental health care? If not, please let vets know about this and offer instruction. This method has gained worldwide attention and is HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL with QUICK & LASTING RESULTS.
