X-Rays Show Structural Changes After Biomodulator Microcurrent Treatment
Jarrah Ali Al-Tubaikh, MD – specializes in radiological diagnostics of rare disorders. He is a member of the German Board of Radiology and currently works in the Radiology Department, Sabah Hospital, Kuwait City, Kuwait.
Kuwait offers a sophisticated healthcare system to its residents, with highly trained specialists. Despite best medical practices and state-of-the-art interventions by physicians, many of these patients continue to suffer from excruciating pain. Since Dr. Al-Tubaikh was introduced to the Tennant Biomodulator® medical device and protocols of Jerry Tennant, MD, MD(H), PScD of Colleyville, Texas, Dr. Al-Tubaikh has significantly improved or eliminated ongoing pain in these patients.
Since learning of the Biomodulator microcurrent device for drug free, non-invasive pain relief, Dr. Al-Tubaikh has used it with patients and co-workers at his hospital as well as with friends, all of whom suffer with severe unresolved pain symptoms. In two cases, he used the Biomodulator with patients specifically referred to him because of severe back pain, as word of the “miracle” treatment spread. In each case, Dr. Tubaikh said he takes images before and after treatment to document changes that have taken place after Biomodulator treatment. “It is hard to argue against radiological images because the evidence is clear; it is not placebo anymore.”
Bowling Ball Syndrome was first described by Robert Boyd, DO, who said that the head weighs about the same as a bowling ball. Because of its weight, the body will always put the upper cervical vertebra under the center of gravity of the head to keep the head upright. When the sphenoid bone is malaligned, the other cranial bones follow. This moves the center of gravity of the skull and causes the following compensating changes.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation for Chronic Postherpetic Neuralgia
Treatment of postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) remains a challenging problem for clinicians. Herpes zoster is a relatively common disease with an incidence of 5 per 1000 patients per year. Involvement of the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve occurs in about 20% of cases. The typical clinical presentation of ophthalmic zoster is blisters and inflammation of the skin supplied by the first division of the trigeminal nerve. If the pain and inflammation remains in the skin after one month with persisting neuropathic pain, it is termed chronic PHN.
The risk of developing PHN is highest with increasing age and presents a major public health issue. Many treatment modalities have been considered with limited success. The different medicinal treatments include the off-label use of antidepressants, opioids, anti-epileptics, and topical anesthesia. Side effects from medical treatment include nausea, sedation, postural hypotension, dizziness, and somnolence. Constipation and sedation from opioids make these drugs poorly tolerated in the elderly. Topical lidocaine patches have been utilized by some physicians to lessen the chronic painful stimuli on the skin.
Biofeedback is defined by the National Library of Medicine, MEDLINE database, as a process that utilizes instrumentation to give a person immediate continuous signals of changes in his/her body. Biofeedback is a wel laccepted therapeutic modality. Electronic devices areoften utilized in biofeedback therapy. The development of computer instrumentation allows a cybernetic loop between the body and the device. The body’s electronics can be measured as a response to a signal sent from the instrument, and then the instrument can send back a signal designed to modify the body’s abnormal signal. The resulting response signal can then be measured, and a new modifying signal returned with a continuous dialogue being established. Therefore, with modern biofeedback, the body’s abnormal electronics can be modified. A team of physicians and scientists at Sochi University in Russia, led by Alexander Revenko, MD, a neurologist, and Alexander Karasev, an electronics expert, developed in the late 1970s, a computerized method of the treatment biofeedback that was compact, efficient, and noninvasive. Modern modification of these self-controlled electronic neuroadaptive regulation (SCENAR) devices, such as the Tennant Biomodulator (TBM), have been granted a Food and Drug Administration class II designation. At no time is the patient allowed to endure pain because the practitioner can instantly reduce the stimulus at any report of adverse sensation. Click here for further study results.
97% of Terminal Cacer Patients Previously Had This Dental Procedure.......
Do you have a chronic degenerative disease? If so, have you been told, “It’s all in your head?” Well, that might not be that far from the truth…The root cause of your illness may be in your mouth. There is a common dental procedure that nearly every dentist will tell you is completely safe, despite the fact that scientists have been warning of its dangers for more than 100 years.
What is this dental procedure? The root canal. More than 25 million root canals are performed every year in this country.
Gum Disease Connected to Open-Angle Glaucoma
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida — Gum disease with recent tooth loss has been linked to the risk for primary open-angle glaucoma, according to findings from a survey of some 40,000 male health professionals. "The hypothesis for this link is that local infection and inflammation at the base of the tooth could release factors that travel to the eye and trigger an inflammatory response that could lead to the development of glaucoma," said principle investigator Louis Pasquale, MD, from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary at Harvard Medical School in Boston.
Eligible men were 40 years and older, reported being under ophthalmic care, and were free of primary open-angle glaucoma.
During follow-up, 483 cases of primary open-angle glaucoma were confirmed, and were classified as having early paracentral visual field loss or peripheral loss only.The risk for primary open-angle glaucoma was 43% higher in men who reported the loss of one or more teeth at the most recent update than in men who reported no lost teeth (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.03 - 1.99).
Oral and Systemic Health
This is a concept paper describing the relationship between a doctor and a dentist working together to help their patients achieve their potential for health. Many patients are not aware of the relationship of oral care to whole body care. Many may be anxious about seeing a dentist for several reasons and when Dr. Tennant discovers dental issues during his examination of a patient and encourages that they address potential dental infections, the anxiety level increases.
Often patients put off seeing a dentist until they are motivated by tooth or jaw pain or serious medical diagnosis they believe is related to their oral health. Even if they are motivated to improve function or appearance they may not be completely aware of the extent of their dental condition and require initial consultation with a dentist that has the same integrity, experience, skills and commitment to oral and systemic health. There are a number of dentists listed with various holistic and biological related dental organizations and research that validates why patients must take an active role in taking responsibility for their own health. When medical practitioners work hard to help their patients, they want to see their patients achieve their goals for wellness. Click here for further study results.
