How Macular Degeneration Occurs by Dr. Jerry Tennant

As many of you know who have been following my teachings in the last 20 years or so, every cell in the body is designed to run at -25 millivolts (minus meaning electron donor) but when cells wear out, you have to have -50 millivolts to make new cells. What I eventually discovered is that all chronic disease occurs when you lose the ability to make new cells that work, and that’s important because most people don’t think about the fact that we’re constantly wearing ourselves out or having our cells injured and needing to make new ones.

 

We get new cells in the macula of the eye every 48 hours, the lining of your guts is replaced every three days, the skin you’re sitting in today is six weeks old, your liver is eight weeks old, and your nervous system is about eight months old. So if cells wear out, we have to make new ones.

 

The macula of your eye regenerates every 48 hours, which is one of the fastest turnovers in the body of all the cell systems. So that leads you to the obvious question: What does it take to make a new cell that works? As I mentioned, we have to have the voltage to do it (-50 millivolts in order to make new cells), so if you think for a moment about the fact that cells are wearing out and need new ones to take their place, you began to understand that if you don’t have those millivolts available and you can’t make new cells, then every 48 hours you continue to lose more cells. When you lose enough cells in any organ, including the macula, it’s going to begin to malfunction. 

 

Where does that voltage come from? I’ve described before that our muscles are piezoelectric rechargeable batteries, but what does piezoelectric mean? If you take a piece of quartz and squeeze it with a pair of pliers, it emits electrons, and so the phenomenon where you distort something and it emits electrons is called piezoelectricity. Every time you move your muscles, your muscles are generating electrons, but because our muscles are “rechargeable batteries”, they’re also storing them. Our muscles are stacked one on top of each other in a very specific order (like stacking batteries in a flashlight to form a power pack) and surrounded by a common sheath of fascia, which is that shiny stuff you see when you carve your turkey. Fascia is actually a semiconductor, which is a collection of molecules arranged in such a way that the electrons will flow through them at the speed of light, but only in one direction. So our muscles are stacked and then surrounded by the common sheath of fascia which forms the body’s wiring system, and so every organ in the body has its own battery pack. A stack of muscle batteries is called an acupuncture meridian. 

 

The voltage necessary for any organ (whether it’s your heart, your liver, your kidneys, or your macula) to make new cells really comes from this stack of muscle batteries. Now, it turns out that the macula of the eye is on a separate power supply and it also has a separate blood circuit, particularly the stomach part of that circuit. The circuit goes from the spleen and up to the stomach and comes back down, but as it makes that loop, it goes to the macula of the eye and then the rest of the retina. The optic nerve is on a different circuit, it’s on the liver-gallbladder circuits) and then the front part of the eye (lens & ciliary body) is on the parasympathetic circuit. 

 

So even though the eye is a very small organ, it has three separate power supplies and blood supplies, so once you understand that the macula has to have voltage from that particular circuit, you begin to have a theory that seems to be applicable as to why we get macular degeneration. 

 

What you find if you measure the voltage in the stomach circuit in people who have macular degeneration is that they’ve lost voltage in the stomach circuit. One of the other important things to understand is that the muscle batteries have polarity, so let’s imagine that I’m holding a battery and it has a plus on one end and a minus on the other. If you drain that battery all the way, the battery will flip (this is well known in battery technology). So once you flip the battery in your stomach circuit upside down, you’re set up to have macular degeneration. So what one wants to do, whether you’re treating the macula or heart or anything else, is to correct the polarity in its power supply so that it can have the -50 millivolts that it needs to make new cells and repair itself. 

 

It turns out that one can flip the polarity back to normal by using scalar energy. Scalar is different from electromagnetic energy and we get scalar energy from the device that I call the BioTransducer®, so if you simply apply the scalar energy from the BioTransducer®, it will flip your battery back upright. Then, if you use the electromagnetic energy from the BioModulator®, it will charge the “battery pack” back up again, and now you have the -50 millivolts to start making new cells. Again, this applies to any organ in the body including the macula, heart, liver, kidneys, etc. The point is that our bodies never forget how to heal themselves, but it needs the energy and raw materials to make new cells.

 

This all leads us then to the question, why did the battery lose its charge/polarity? We’ve identified five different things that make batteries lose their charge and flip their polarity. You can learn about them here.

 

Regarding the macula in particular, as we begin to lose cells the body puts down a waxy substance which is called beta-amyloid. The word that has been used for more than the fifty years I’ve been in ophthalmology it’s called drusen. Drusen is a yellow, waxy spot that gets put down in the macular area when you lose cells and the body puts that down anyplace there’s inflammation, and it has been proven in published studies that the extrusion will actually go away. But if the process goes on long enough, the drusen will be replaced by scar tissue. 

 

Secondly what we find is that as the voltage drops in a tissue, the oxygen drops as well. Let’s say you have a heart attack and you’ve got a coronary artery that’s occluded, the body will grow new blood vessels around that blocked artery to try to bring more oxygen to the tissue.

 

With the macula, we begin with cells dying and then eventually being replaced by that waxy substance. If the process continues, voltage drops more, and then oxygen drops to that part of the body, and new blood vessels will form from behind the macula called the choroid. When this occurs, we call it “wet” macular degeneration, because those blood vessels can bleed into the macula. Early macular degeneration is considered “dry”, continued loss of oxygen becomes “wet” as the body sends in new blood vessels to try to bring in more oxygen. The last step is hemorrhaging which creates scar tissue.


The traditional standard of care therapy for dry macular degeneration is to put you on various kinds of vitamins and minerals to try to resolve the problem, which seems to slow it down a little bit, but not a lot. Once it begins to bleed, what one does is inject a drug into the eye that closes down those little blood vessels, but because you haven’t fixed the oxygen deficiency, the body will keep growing new blood vessels because the root cause hasn’t been addressed. 

 

What’s the root cause? Lack of voltage. What is the lack of voltage caused by? A lack of oxygen, so the theory that we follow when we treat macular degeneration is that we identify the loss of power and correct it. We don’t claim in the clinic that we can “cure” macular degeneration, but what we do is try to restore the physiology of the macula back to normal by using this theory which is a combination of published events. We check a person’s vision with an OCT scan (which is similar to an MRI) so that we can follow the progress of what happened. Then we do a variety of other studies for the visual function, and try to address all of the root causes that we’ve talked about. In the end, we repeat all those studies, and the data speaks for itself.
