Frequently Asked Questions
Tennant Biomodulator Cybernetic Biofeedback
Q.ÝWhat is a "Tennant Biomodulator"?
A.ÝThe Tennant Biomodulator is a device created by Jerry Tennant MD after years of clinical research using Cybernetic Biofeedback technology.Ý The Tennant Biomodulator has patent pending frequencies not found on any other biofeedback technology devices available.Ý
Biofeedback devices have been widely used in Russian hospitals since the early 1980's.Ý However, it remained a military secret until perestroika.Ý At that time, the inventors were issued a patent for the device, and they began to make it available to the West. We are proud to have been working with the Russian inventors to bring this incredible technology into the USA for over 4 ? years.Ý (as of Dec 2004)
Richard Kratz MD describes his experiences with Cybernetic Biofeedback therapy as "highly effective therapy that provides non-invasive contact with the skin.Ý The device sends low 9-volt electrical signals to the brain by way of the nerves to stimulate the brain to activate the body's own self-healing resources.Ý Every cell and every organ in the body is controlled by and communicates with other cells and organs via electric signals.Ý The skin, the brain and the nervous system are closely related since they are all derived from embryonic ectoderm.Ý The device imitates normal nerve signals and causes the brain to respond by sending pain relieving and healing electric signalsä."
Q.Ý Does the Tennant Biomodulator have FDA Approval?
A.Ý The Best Pro 1 (Biofeedback-controlled electro-stimulator) is regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration, under 21 CFR 882.5050. Generic Name: device, Biofeedback, Product Code HCC, Class II exempt from 510 (K) pre-market notification according to FDA Notice FR21ja98-84 as a battery-powered, professional use device for relaxation training and muscle reeducation.Ý The Avazzia Tennant Biomodulator is a Biofeedback Electro-stimulator is a quality medical instrument and accepted by the FDA as a class II device.
FDA approval requires that the Avazzia Tennant Biomodulator be used by or upon the recommendation of a licensed health practitioner, thus it is necessary to obtain a copy of the purchaser's license and keep it in their file.Ý
*For those who want it for their own use, we proceed with the following protocol:
1 Complete (in person, via phone or email/fax) a registration form and a doctor/patient contract.
2 A doctor must sign a prescription for them stating, "Use Best Pro 1 or Tennant Biomodulator as directed." ÝThis prescription may be written by Dr Tennant via Computerized Stress Reduction Clinic, "Senergy Medical Center".
Q.ÝWhat is the Relationship between Cybernetic Biofeedback and the Best Pro 1 or Tennant Biomodulator?
A.Ý Biofeedback, as defined by the National Library of Medicine MedLine database, is a process that uses instrumentation to give a person immediate and continuous signals of change in his bodily functions of which he is usually unaware. Biofeedback treatment with the Tennant Biomodulator is non-invasive and drug-free. The device provides a welcome complement to allopathic medicine and leaves the mind alert.ÝÝ People treated with the devices usually report a pleasant, relaxed feeling of well being.Ý
Q.ÝWhat training is available for the Tennant Biomodulator?
A.Ý Senergy Medical Group offers monthly training courses in conjunction with Jerry Tennant MD (as an independent consultant) Dr Tennant accepted the position to provide training for the Tennant Biomodulator in the US through his clinic Tennant Institute of Integrative Medicine / Computerized Stress Reduction.Ý The training protocol has been mapped out years of research by Dr Tennant through clinical practice and investigation. ÝTraining for Cybernetic Biofeedback devices became available January 2002 and monthly thereafter.
Q.Ý Is it Safe?
A.Ý The Tennant Biomodulator has shown side effects to be low if not non-existent, but please use caution when using the devices until you are able to attend training.Ý Training will provide you with the opportunity to receive maximum benefits.Ý Do not use on a person with a pace makeror other electronic implant, be careful not to touch the devices to any metal surface and do not use on the upper portion of the carotid arteries.
Q.Ý What Does it Feel Like?
As the device is moved over the surface of the skin a tingling prickly sensation is felt.Ý In cases of severe pain or acute conditions, the sensations may be stronger.Ý Patients usually report that they experience an immediate reduction in pain and feel "energized" after a session.
Q.Ý How does the Tennant Biomodulator devices work?
A.Ý As with any therapy or treatment, patients need to accept responsibility for their health and understand the physical, mental, emotional, environmental, heredity and spiritual influences on wellness.Ý The Russian experience suggests that it can be effective for a very broad range of diseases, including digestive, cardiovascular, respiratory, musculo-skeletal, urinary, reproductive and nervous system.Ý Western practitioners are reporting positive results with a wide variety of diseases and conditions.Ý The term asymmetry (meaning something different about the tissue characteristics in the vicinity such as:
Ä Color difference (reddening or pallor) *
Ä Sensation (numbness or hyper-aesthesia) *
Ä "stickiness" in which the Best Pro 1 drags with a magnet like quality as it is drawn over certain portions of the skin *
Ä Sound changes (the machine begins to chatter electronically when it hits the right zone) *
Ä Numerical display readings alter *

Q. ÝWhat is the Connection Between the Autonomic Nervous System and the Pathway to Disease
A.ÝTo begin to understand the full benefits of Cybernetic Biofeedback using the Best Pro 1, it is helpful to understand that the principal control mechanism of the body is the autonomic nervous system.Ý It has two parts, sympathetic (fight or run) and parasympathetic (eat and sleep).Ý When the sympathetic turns on, the parasympathetic turns off.Ý The sympathetic is turned on by the following mechanisms:
1 You are really in danger of being hurt (e.g., spousal abuse)
2 You feel in danger or you feel victimized (In a Box).
3 Your pH is acidic = too much calcium in the blood and too little magnesium and potassium in the body.
4 You become allergic to the foods you eat = wheat (gluten), corn, dairy and eggs are the most common because we tend to expose ourselves to them every day.
5 Actual trauma or pain
When we are sympathetic-on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we develop typical chronic disease and chronic fatigue.Ý Parasympathetic shutdown means we don't make enzymes and don't have normal blood supply and innervations to the gut because the blood is sent to the muscles so we can fight or run better.Ý That means that even if we eat a perfect diet and take $100 worth of nutriceuticals Ý(vitamins) a day, they won't be absorbed. Parasympathetic shutdown also means the large intestine won't work.Ý Its main function is to conserve water.Ý As the digestive sludge is delivered to the large intestine, it normally extracts the water.Ý Without normal innervations and poor blood supply, this doesn't work well.Ý There develops a waxy, oily coating of the large intestine.Ý The wall of the gut becomes leaky and inflamed creating a leaky gut syndrome.ÝÝ This allows large molecule proteins to enter the blood, causing allergies.Ý The blood tries to excrete them through the sinuses creating sinusitis.Ý The debris invites Candida and parasites to live there because they like to eat the waxy, oily debris.Ý Killing them does little thus they will keep returning until the parasympathetic system is re-activated.
When the sympathetic system is on, it also turns on all of the endocrine glands so that we can fight or run better.Ý The brain makes more serotonin, dopamine, and nor epinephrine.Ý The thyroid makes more hormones to increase metabolism.Ý The parathyroid makes more hormones to increase calcium which is necessary for nerve conduction and muscle contraction.Ý The pancreas makes more insulin.Ý The adrenals make more cortisol so more sugar is available.ÝThey also make more adrenalin.ÝThe gonads make more sex hormones which make us stronger.
As we run out of nutrients, since the gut doesn't absorb them, we run out of raw materials to make hormones.Ý Since hormones are made from fat, this ridiculous low-fat diet craze doesn't help either. In addition to not having the proper building blocks to make hormones, the endocrine glands also just wear out from running 24/7.Ý That means the brain can't think, our metabolism slows down so we gain weight we can't lose, lack of adrenalin makes it hard for us to deal with stress, lack of cortisol and insulin makes us hypoglycemic, and lack of sex hormones makes us impotent and then disinterested in sex.ÝÝ In addition to the endocrine glands, the sympathetic system turns on the immune system.Ý It also runs 24/7 and wears out.Ý We are then susceptible to both external infections and internal infections (the pleomorphic endobionts).ÝÝ Now we are set up for chronic fatigue and then organ failure.Ý We are susceptible to all sorts of infections.Ý Because our brain doesn't have the chemicals to think and we are low on adrenalin, we go from anxiety to anger to depression to anxiety to anger to depression.Ý This causes our relationships to fail with our spouse, our parents, our children, our co-workers and our God. This is what I call the Pathway to Disease.Ý
The degenerative phase causes the organ to slowly malfunction.Ý Over time, total failure of the function of the organ is followed by organ death. To recover from the adaptation and degeneration of an organ system, it must be re-connected to the central nervous system or the recovery will only be temporary (no on-going) maintenance. This is most effectively accomplished with the use of the Best Pro 1 cybernetic biofeedback device.Ý In either an acute injury or a chronic adaptation, the inductance of the skin over the troubled area will be elevated.Ý The Best Pro 1 is used in diagnostic mode to identify these areas. A change of +4 units is considered significant.Ý Once we balance the autonomic system, the gut will start absorbing nutrients, the endocrine glands will rest and recover, the immune system will recover,

Tennant Biomodulator Cybernetic Biofeedback therapy in Practice.
Due to the influence on the body, cybernetic biofeedback using the Best Pro 1 Ý& Tennant Biomodulator activates the nervous fibers including the thin C-fibers. In such fibers the various groups of neuropeptides are the neuro-mediators. According to modern medical research, the body's biological functions are ensured by neuropeptides. As for example, endorphin provides a pain relief effect, vasopressin regulates memory and so on. These devices make neuropeptides start working actively on the body's treatment. As a result, the body heals itself by using its own reserves.
Q. What are some of The Effects seen with cybernetic biofeedback Therapy?:
Ä therapeutic and revitalizing effects appear after the first session
Ä achieved effects are intensive and long-lasting
Ä recognition of weak points of the body and positive influence on them
Ä anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling action
Ä pain relief
Ä swift rehabilitation effects
Ä faster and better healing of wounds, ulcers (including peptic ulcers)
Ä improvement of blood circulation
Ä fast recovery of strength
Ä improvement of the general condition

Q.Ý What Are Some Results?
A.Ý Case Study Examples ‚ These case studies have been submitted by individual users and are not claims of Senergy Medical Group. The statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.
1 A patient, 36-years-old, suffered from Ankylosing Spondylitis for 19 years, said the following after the completing a therapy course: "Before this treatment, I could only see the shoes of the person I was talking with. Now I am able to look them in the eyes." Already after 6 procedures, the mobility of the spine increased, pain and the tension of the spine's muscles decreased. There was an improvement in the general condition of the patient.
2 A female patient of 40-years-old, while going through a divorce, suffered from stomach aches, insomnia, irritation, nervous tic. After the first two therapy sessions she was much better: the tic and stomach aches disappeared; the sleep and general condition also improved.
3 A 53 years-old female was suffering from an anxiety attack that was a chronic problem for nearly 20 years.Ý She received relief through drug therapy but the problem persisted.ÝPlacing the device on spots on the neck for two minutes caused the pain in her esophagus to "melt away".
4 A 47 years-old nurse suffered from occasional yet chronic outbreak of herpes blisters on her lips.Ý She was not receiving relief after a week of medication.Ý After placing the device on her lip for two minutes she reported immediate relief of symptoms and within two days did not return, the blister scabbed over and completely healed.
5 A 70 years-old man suffered from un-explainable pain in his hips and neuralgia in his legs.Ý His doctors could not give him an explanation or cure.Ý After his first treatment he obtained 90% relief from symptoms and after his second treatment he has remained 100% free of symptoms for the past two months.Ý His neuralgia in his legs has subsided and he now has feeling in his legs and feet.
6 After treating two infant siblings (7 months old and two years old) suffering from ear infections and fever for twenty minutes, both infants calmed down and their fevers dropped to normal readings.
7 A 53 years old woman had surgery on her colon nearly twenty years ago which left scar tissue that was now creating a blockage that was suggesting immediate surgery.Ý After several treatments over a two day period, the pain subsided and her system was returned to normal elimination function thus surgery was not required.
8 A 32 years old man was unable to move his head up and down or back and forth after an accident.Ý After one treatment he regained mobility and the pain has stopped.Ý
9 A 42 years old man was treated after surgery on his Achilles tendon.Ý The incision and surrounding tissue was irritated, swollen and inflamed.Ý After three treatments he reported that the pain and swelling was gone and his surgeon reported a faster than normal recovery which allowed him to return to full function in half the projected time of rehabilitation.
10 Ý A 61 year old woman in excellent health suffered from pain in her hips for 15 years.Ý After 2 treatments she reported that her pain was gone.Ý She continues treatments each day and now reports that she has more flexibility and mobility that she has had in years.
