Personal Health Journey
At the height of Dr. Jerry Tennant’s career, the unthinkable happened. Being one of the first surgeons in the US to place intraocular lenses in eyes after cataract surgery, he was unaware that viruses existing in a patient’s eyes could possibly be passed on to the surgeon.
Each time Dr. Tennant performed surgery, the laser would strike the patient’s eye and release viruses that drifted upward through his mask and into his nose and brain. In time, he developed encephalitis and a bleeding disorder that manifested as spastic movements and an inability to remember even how to write a prescription. Diagnostic tests confirmed he had three viruses in his brain, but no one knew how to treat them. Dr. Tennant’s physicians told him there was nothing that could be done to help him.
So, on November 30, 1995, he was forced to retire at the height of his career.
For seven years, mental fog and fatigue took over and Dr. Jerry Tennant would sleep for 16 hours a day. There would only be 2-3 hours per day when he could think & read until he suddenly would no longer be able to understand what he was reading. He gradually began to realize that it was up to him to find the answers since modern medicine didn’t have any.
As he learned more, he started to understand the importance of learning how to get a single cell to work correctly. If he could do that, in time, all of his cells would work correctly.
Each of the cellular biology books he read gave passing reference to the fact that cells function in a narrow range of pH, but said little more. Dr. Tennant began to look closely at pH. He came to realize that in addition to acidity and alkalinity, pH measures the voltage in a solution.
Dr. Tennant began to understand that cells must have enough voltage to work and that chronic disease is associated with loss of voltage. His next step was to find out how to measure the voltage and keep it at optimal levels. Following this path, he was finally able to heal himself naturally.
Dr. Jerry Tennant also teaches and lectures worldwide for Senergy Medical Group, the exclusive distributor of his patented Tennant Biomodulator® PLUS & PRO. These FDA-accepted, non-invasive devices are designed to offer healthcare professionals and home users affordable drug-free and user-friendly options for the indicated use of symptomatic relief for chronic, severe, and intractable pain, and adjunctive treatment in the management of post-surgical and post-traumatic pain.

Quick Q&A with Dr. Jerry Tennant
Question: I suffer from a chronic condition producing constant pain for the past 20 years. Where may I turn for help and how do you work with pain?
Dr. Jerry Tennant: While we do not make any claims, treat specific illnesses or conditions, we have achieved encouraging results with our patients and our practitioners. My clinic, Tennant Institute for Integrative Medicine in Dallas, Texas, provides care for individuals seeking alternative protocols. I provide services for each person on an individual basis and consider all possible causes and protocols to help alleviate pain and help tap the body’s healing potential.
Question: How may I learn more about your approach to wellness?
Dr. Jerry Tennant: My approach to wellness embraces the balancing, nurturing, exercising and developing of all aspects of our being and factors affecting health. These include: physical, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social and environmental. One of my primary missions is to research and share my findings and enable others to educate themselves and discover answers to their unique health related questions through wellness educational seminars taught throughout the US and other locations where I am invited to teach. I also conduct personal assessments at my clinic in Irving, Texas.
Question: What is your core belief regarding health and nutrition? And what is your approach to obtaining and maintaining wellness?
Dr. Jerry Tennant: The body is a self-healing mechanism. It is designed to heal. What happens when you cut your finger? Without any conscious effort, it mends and heals. We believe that all other conditions in our bodies will heal, given the proper raw materials. There is no silver bullet for any chronic disease. One must systematically turn on the brain’s neuro-chemicals and activate the pituitary that activates the endocrine system that controls the rest of the organs.
One must clean the liver and gall bladder and to be able to eliminate toxins. Most of these vasculitis syndromes are due to toxins that the liver can’t excrete. Then you must supply the body with total nutrition so it can rebuild itself. I am always studying various nutritional products looking for the best delivery source to the body. You also must educate yourself and stop poisoning your body with current food and behavioral habits as well as remove dental toxins. Traditional medicine suppresses the inflammation caused by these toxins with oral cortisone and immuno-destructive drugs.
Question: How do we achieve our full potential for wellness? How do we heal from chronic conditions?
Dr. Jerry Tennant: Balancing, exercising and nourishing all aspects of our being, we bring healing and a sense of wholeness back to our lives. I teach a comprehensive approach to help people identify their self-defeating habits and replace them with healthy alternatives so they may benefit from the resources available to all of us. It is our goal to listen to our patients and professional colleagues and consistently study,
research, test and develop more advanced technologies and therapies to assist you in understanding how your body is able to heal itself.
