Foundation for Jacobson Resonance (FJR) -- Some would say that it takes a lot of ÂnerveÂ to announce that nerve growth and repair may very well be on the horizon. Yet, that is exactly what rigorous laboratory experiments with cells and mice, and human clinical case studies -- using MRT (Magnetic Resonance Therapy) -- strongly indicate. Here are the facts.
Ehurd Cunningham, 61, from Nassau, is the Secretary for Revenue, Ministry of Finance, for the Bahamas Government, and has suffered from diabetic neuropathy (Neuropathy means Âsuffering of nerve tissue,Â and can affect any segment of the nervous system). His suffering included burning, stiffness and numbness in both feet. He walked with great difficulty and precarious balanceÂ and was unable to wear regular shoes.
After two and a half months of treatment, averaging about twice per week, all symptoms abated, and he has walked normally sinceÂ wearing his normal shoes everyday. And, since his last treatment 16 months ago, there has been no return of any symptoms.
According to Mr. Cunningham: ÂÂ My restoration healing has been like a miracle. Dr. Jacobson took the time to explain to me what the treatment process entailed. This allowed me to have a high level of trust, confidence and faith in the process. I have progressed from a position of just barely able to wear my slippers to now wearing my regular shoes everyday.Â
Several other patients, in ongoing clinical case studies, have shown similar improvements with treatment and maintenance programs.
As a backdrop to Mr. CunninghamÂs story, two studies were conducted at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University and then replicated at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Department of Biological Sciences. The studies tested the effect of Jacobson MRT magnetic fields on excised sciatic (leg) nerves of mice in-vitro (culture medium). The findings showed that treated nerve segments maintained normal Schwann cells and a normal myelin sheath structure. The untreated control nerve segments simply degenerated. Additionally, the length and width of exposed nerve segments increased, whereas the untreated nerve segments remained the same. In the first experiment, as an example, there was a 33 percent increase in length and a 50 percent increase in width of treated nerve segments. Studies of DNA, the building blocks of genes, extracted from both treated and untreated nerve segments showed no DNA degradation, nor was there uncontrolled cell proliferation.
After completing in-vitro studies, Professor Brij Saxena and Professor Emeritus Anjali Saxena (in collaboration with Prof. Jerry I. Jacobson) conducted in-vivo (in the living system) studies. One study was performed at Cornell and the next replicate study with greater population of mice was accomplished at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
The effect of JacobsonÂs MRT magnetic fields on the restoration of forelimb grip strength and radial nerve (forelimb) ultra-structure was studied in mice. Motor neuropathy was induced by the administration of a neurotoxin (poison) in drinking water for nine and a half weeks. Forelimb grip strength of mice declined to 47 percent compared to the non-poisoned control group. The poisoned group without any MRT treatment persisted to have a 56 percent decrease in grip strength, and the electron microscope photographs (see attachment) showed loss of myelin, decreased energy production of cells and fragmentation of sub-cellular structures responsible for slow and fast nerve conduction. In contrast, the poisoned group treated with MRT (8-1/2 weeks, twice weekly) showed an 87 percent recovery of grip strength Â which was sustained after termination of treatment at an 82 percent level until the twenty-seventh week of observation. The treated group showed remyelination, active mitochondria, and maintenance of nerve ultra-structure consistent with grip strength recovery.
ÂThese results are the first to demonstrate a biological effect of electromagnetic fields in-vivo on the restoration of sub-cellular structures required for nerve impulse conduction and metabolism in recovery from motor neuropathy, under controlled experimental conditionsÂ, said Professor Emeritus Anjali Saxena of Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Foundation for Jacobson Resonance (FJR), founded in 1995, is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization whose mission is to support education and research in Jacobson Resonance and other related worthy causes. Throughout the years FJR has sponsored educational forums, public informational media campaigns, mailing campaigns, fundraising events, and has granted funds for research purposes.
On February 17, 2004 Section 513(g) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (Act) responded to the request to use the Jacobson Resonator to Âenhance feelings of relaxation.Â The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDR1-1) does not intend to enforce pre-market requirements on the Jacobson Resonator. This enforcement discretion applies to this type of device only when it is labeled solely to Âenhance feelings of relaxation.Â
