How to Heal Your Body with Positive Affirmations and Tapping

Written by: Nick Ortner

Louise Hay was my dear friend and mentor, and though she’s recently passed on, I feel her with me, and the influence of her work, more than ever.

Since the publication of her internationally bestselling book “You Can Heal Your Life” in 1984, Louise Hay has (she’s still doing it from the beyond!) been teaching and inspiring millions of people around the world.

Renowned for demonstrating the power of affirmations to bring about positive change, she was the author of more than 30 books for adults and children, as well as the founder of the publishing company Hay House (my publisher).

Louise was a firm believer that all of our physical problems were a result of our thinking. So if we were willing to do the mental and emotional work, anything could be healed. And she showed us this, by living her fullest to the wise age of 91.

She was a living example of her dedicated work, creating a legacy of positivity and inspiration, influencing many to follow a path of helping others, including me.

But she was also a huge proponent of encouraging others to help themselves.

You Can Heal Your Body

Louise knew the secret of the mind-body connection even before it started to become mentioned in more mainstream circles.

I remember her saying that she started with just a little pamphlet that she put together when teaching in small groups that listed some of the most common health issues and how to resolve them using specific affirmations.

That list grew into the book, “Heal Your Body”, indexing hundreds of ailments.

All you had to do was look up your specific health challenge, read the probable cause for the issue (stemming from a mental or emotional challenge), and apply the corresponding information to overcome it by creating a new thought pattern.

That book has sold millions of copies and has been used by people from around the world, with incredible success.

I’ve personally referred to it SO many times in the past twenty years. It’s simply an incredible piece of work.

Dinner with Louise

I remember the first dinner I had with Louise, in 2013. There she was, with her glass of red wine… and her glass of white wine (that’s how she made “rose” lol – not kidding!)

And about halfway through the dinner she turned to me and said, “Honey, what are we going to do together?” Meaning, what work will we create together.


Really, Louise Hay asking to do something together?

Sadly, though we became friends over the coming years, we never pulled off a specific project together, though she did publish my books and support our work in a huge way (including generous donations to our TS Foundation to support the work in Newtown, CT).

But maybe not sadly…

Maybe she knew something I didn’t, and was just waiting for the perfect time to combine EFT Tapping with her work.

Combining Tapping with Positive Affirmations

When I was brainstorming about our new Tapping Solution App, I wanted to include Louise’s work in some way, because I felt it was important to continue her legacy of helping others.

So here’s what I did…

Remember her book that I mentioned above, “Heal Your Body”? For each physical Problem, she included a Probable Cause (mental and/or emotional) plus a Solution (new thought pattern).

So I thought, what if we can combine BOTH Tapping and Positive Affirmations to create a symbiotic powerhouse that encourages your own body to heal!

We could tap OUT the negative mental and emotional causes, then tap IN the new positive affirmations that Louise indexes in her book.

I immediately called my dear friend Reid Tracy, who is the President of Hay House and Louise’s dearest friend for decades, and said, “Reid, what do you think about this idea? Do I have your permission and the permission of Hay House to do this?”

He kindly, generously, said yes…

And thus the “Heal Your Body” category of our Tapping Solution App was born.

The Tapping Solution App

With almost two dozen of the most common health issues the majority of us face today, you now have access to this incredibly powerful tool for bringing about that healing in your body you so desire.

Here are just a few of the health issues currently available as tapping meditations on the app:

Allergies • Arthritis • Asthma • Back Problems • High Blood Pressure • High Cholesterol • Cancer • Diabetes • Headaches • Neck Problems • Tinnitus • Ulcers • More!

As an added bonus, I’m including the free meditation from this category that comes with your free download of the app.

Heal Your Body: Lower Back Problems

Can you imagine yourself healthy, fit, disease-free, living a vibrant and productive life?

If you can imagine it, it can happen for you. These tapping meditations can help.

Download The Tapping Solution App and use some of the “Heal Your Body” tapping meditations, all of which are founded in Louise Hay’s intuitive healing knowledge.

We’ve received such incredible feedback so far on the meditations in this category, and we’ll continue to add more as updated versions of the app are released.

I hope this article helped you to understand how inspiring the life of Louise Hay was, and how her work continues through the many millions of those whom she touched.

Go here to download the app now and make sure to let me know other physical conditions you want me to explore in these meditations, either by commenting below or sending me an email at

Until next time…

Keep Tapping!

P.S. The day the app was launched, I went into NYC for a book launch party for my friend Danette May. Her new book, “The Rise”, was published by Hay House, so there were other Hay House authors and friends there.

I was standing in a small group including Danette, my friend Jim Kwik, and Patty Gift, Vice President at Hay House and I was telling them, and Patty specifically who was very close to Louise, about this set of meditations.

As I shared it with them, and showed them the app and the meditations, I got the BIGGEST body chills I’ve ever experienced. Louise was there with us and I can feel the same thing as I write these words now.

I am beyond honored to continue expanding her work and legacy, and I hope these meditations help your body heal and connect with this incredible wisdom.

Have you used Tapping or any of The Tapping Solution App meditations to heal your body? I’d love to hear your comments!

    I dearly want to download this app but it says my iOS isn’t the right one on my iPad. My iPad isn’t the most up to date it is iPad 2 can I not get it then?

  2. Ward Barcafer says:

    Interesting your remark about Louise being with you. I am sure you realize there is no death as we think of it. My wife transited in 2016 and we were so close and I was so filled with grief that she came to me communicating through my mind that she was alive in another realm we call heaven. I published two books through Balboa press detailing her signs and manifestations. Beyond the Veil to Heaven and the latest one Beyond Earth Through Heaven’s gates.

  3. Amie says:

    Hi Nick,

    Would love to see tapping to heal digestive issues in the collection. Loving the App! 🙏🏻

  4. Virginia says:

    Please help me and all the thousands of desperate people who need your help. We do not have smart phones. We do have computers. We are willing to pay for this wonderful “life saving information.” Will you make available a method of receiving this incredible information for us “computer users” also. And believe me I do hear Louise Hay, with whom I have spent a life time with, saying, “yes, yes, yes.” Thank you Nick and family for the answer and help you are going to give to all of the grateful “computer users only.” Virginia Randall

    • Becky says:

      I second this request. I do have a smart phone, but it’s too slow for most apps, and it doesn’t keep a charge long enough to do much with it. I would not use the app on my phone, but would love to use the app on my computer. So a website that we pay the same amount as app users would be perfect.

  5. Ellen Severson, LISW says:

    Hope you are progressing with the Android version. I have used Loise Hay’s work with myself and my clients for years. So glooking forward to incorporating Tapping. Thank you!

  6. Judy Parlongo says:

    If you could add a tapping on incontinence it would be so helpful to me and thousands of other women who suffer from this problem. My God bless you for the work you are doing.

  7. Patkapphahn says:

    Would love tapping affirmations for serious eye conditions affecting vision. I have keratakonus. Just downloaded your app. Thank you ! ❤️

  8. Elaine Mayrhofer says:

    Would love a cure for over 2years of heart palpitations caused by arrythmias ….docs cannot find actual cause. Heart has gone up over 200 beats per minister….terrifying. Also dizziness limits my life and is unpredictable.
    Thanks for guiding me to wonderful things…I have your books


  9. Gayle says:

    I have had a shoulder injury for more than two years. Not able to do much at work. At night I have problems sleeping with pressure on my shoulder and neck. Can you help me please. The osteopath did some tapping on my shoulder. I lose the muscles on the right side of my neck. Also I lost muscle tone down my right side. Doctors couldn’t explain what happened. Have had all of the scans and m r is.Can you please help me. The osteopath silently read from a piece of paper.

  11. Paula says:

    Hey Nick,
    Thx so much for doing this! I can see from other comments that I am not the only one who does NOT use their phone for all this other stuff. Will this ever be available for lap top or tablet?
    Also, if you could do one for varicose veins I’d be thrilled! I am going to try doing it myself (but you’re the expert! 🙂 as this has been a long standing problem for me, not for vanity reasons, it has truly impacted what I am able to do in life.
    God bless for all the help you are to so many!

    • Nick Ortner says:

      Hi Puala! We actually do have a meditation on varicose veins already in the works and it will be available in the app. 🙂

  12. Angelica says:

  13. Patti says:

    I am so waiting for theAndroid version to come out. Am very much in need of body healing in a lot of areas and love positive affirmations. Your work is so great Nick.

  14. Florence says:

    Thank you.Eagerly awaiting the Android version. Continue the fine work.

  15. Anne says:

    Thank you so much Nick! Before I began tapping, Louise’s book was my “bible.” I have been using it in conjunction with tapping on this specific subject, as my lower back seems to gather mucked up energy or tension every time I have a huge release in tapping (no matter the subject). That is precisely when it began, when I started tapping. It was like a reminder to me that there is still something there (to release). Maybe it is where my other energy gets stuck when it’s on it’s way out? I am not an app person, so hopefully I can continue to access this one here, or in TIC. I’ve already repeated it four times (along with tapping on things that came up). So I’ll wear it out while I can, and maybe release this “issue” once and for all!

    • Brenda says:

  17. Martie says:

    Will you be developing the app for Android? I would love to be able to use it, but don’t have an iPhone, and I see now that there are others who feel the same!

  18. Rev. Christopher says:

    I was first introduced to Louise’s book, “You can heal your life”, in ’85 and became a huge fan of her and her books.

    Over a decade ago, I became aware of EFT, studied it and then introduced it to my practice specializing in anxiety/panic, trauma and PTSD. I have been combining the information from “Heal Your Body”, my intuition and what my clients bring to our sessions, with Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology since with great results.

    While I specialize in , I often find Louise’s work to

  23. Sarelyn Parrault says:

    Thanks Nick

  24. Angel says:

    I love that you pieced together in your soul her question to you in 2013 with the energy movement in you now to fulfill it. Now that IS seeing the inner realities!

  25. Monica from CT says:

    Thank you Nick. This was great! Did open up some memories as a child growing up. So grateful for you, Louise, and Hay House family.

  26. Jagruti says:

    I am a fan of tapping. I had a speech problem for which i took heavy medications and still i could not talk clearly. My energy healer told me to start tapping and taught me. I was skeptical and dis not do it. After a few days u tried it and I got 80% of my speech back. I could not believe it. Within a few days i was completely cured. To think how much money I had spent on doctors and medicines which gave side effects makinf me almost crazy. I thank God for his guidance and introducing me to tapping. He also gave me Louse Hay’s book. For anyone out there don’t believe your doctor if he gives you a negative opinion. Just try tapping. Nick you are doing awesome work.

  27. Kitty says:

    Could you please add one for Enviromental illness/multiple chemical sensitivity? I put down new flooring and it ended up being a product from China with high VOC’s in it. It ended up making me very sick. Now I react to all fragrances, cleaning products, new bldg products, etc. almost a shut in now. When I have to go to the doctor, I get sick from their cleaning products and it lasts for weeks. So please add a meditation for that particular health issue so maybe I can reprogram my brain to not have my immune system react to so many things. Thank you so much!!!

  28. Karon Gray says:

    You will probably think I am very strange, but what exactly is an app and how does one ‘unload’ it please?? I am 76 years old, living on my old age pension with a small supplement. I have quite a few health issues but the ones that concern me the most are the ones that cause me pain. I have a laptop computer (that I am not totally friendly with…smiles), and I wonder if I can do that downloading thing with the computer?? Thank you.

    • Nick Ortner says:

      Hi Karon! The app is a special program only for smartphones and tablets – modern mobile phones and devices, if you will. 🙂

      • Becky says:

        Please, Nick, put these on a website that we pay for and log into. Or, better yet, include them in the Insiders Club package.

  29. Sophia TC says:

    Thank you!
    What a brilliant idea to combine Louise Hay’s affirmations with tapping.
    I found the tapping very uplifting. It brought out memories that have kept me stuck in money issues.
    I can’t wait for the Android version.
    Many blessings, Sophia
