Tennant Biomodulator & Biotransducer
Using Microcurrent Technology in Healing the Body

Who is Dr. Jerry Tennant?


Dr. Tennant is board certified in ophthalmology and ophthalmic plastic surgery (residency, Harvard Medical School & Southwestern Medical school) He was the director of ophthalmic plastic surgery clinic at Parkland Hospital and practiced from 1965 to 1995. He did much of the FDA study for the VISX Excimer laser and he performed approximately 1000 surgeries in the United States and Europe. He was the founder/director of the Dallas Eye Institute and was one of the first surgeons in the US to place intraocular lenses in eyes after cataract surgery. He taught these techniques around the world. He holds patents for medical devices including intraocular lenses and several surgical instruments.  Dr. Tennant is also licensed in Arizona by the Board of Homeopathic and Alternative Medicine and is currently the Director of the Tennant Institute for Integrative Medicine.

When performing laser therapy, it wasn’t known at the time that laser did not kill viruses. The laser would strike the cornea, release viruses, and they were ingested through his mask, into Dr. Tennant's nose and his brain. As a result he developed encephalitis neuropathies, a low platelet count and other nervous system defects in 1994. 

For almost 7 years, he slept for about 16 hours a day due to the viral infections in his brain and spleen. The traditional medical system had failed him to this point, so Dr. Tennant took control of his own health and wellness by seeking out natural and alternative ways to get better. As a result of his research for alternatives to regain his own health, he developed the Tennant Biomodulator® for his energetic medicine, as well as other natural modalities to re-balance his body. Dr.Tennant is recognized as one of the top 25 Doctors in the USA. 

Dr. Tennant began his journey toward getting well by recognizing that cells are designed to run between a pH of 7.35 and 7.45. He had the idea that if he could figure out how to make one cell work, he could make them all work.

What he discovered was that pH (potential hydrogen) is really the measurement of voltage.  When electrons are running through a conductor like a copper wire, they are there or they are not. If the switch is on, you have an electron donor. If the switch is off, there are no electrons. After measuring the voltage of a solution, one can convert that into a logarithmic scale called pH. A voltage of +400 mV is the same as a pH of zero. A voltage of -400 mV is the same as a pH of 14. A solution that is neither an electron donor nor an electron stealer is called a pH of seven.

With this understanding, one can see that a pH of 7.35 is the same as a voltage of -20 mV. A pH of 7.45 is the same as a voltage of -25 mV. Thus we see that all cellular biology texts tell us that cells are designed to run between -20 and -25 millivolts of electron donor status!

The following charts begin to help us understand the difference between electron donors and electron stealers as it relates to the human body.

Electron Stealer +

  • Causes damage

  • pH 0 - 6.9

  • Free radical

  • Positive pole

  • Destructive

  • Spins left


Electron Donor -

  • Can do work

  • pH 7.1 – 14

  • Antioxidant

  • Negative pole

  • Constructive

  • Spins right


Electron stealers cause damage, are a pH of 0 to 6.9, are acidic, are free radicals, are the positive pole, are destructive and at the atomic level spin left.

You will hear statements like "all disease occurs when you are acidic”. What this is really saying is that all disease occurs when your voltage is low or in an electron stealer state. The phrase “alkalize or die” means is that you must have electrons available to do work or your cells will die.

A free radical is a molecule that is missing electrons. It is like a mugger looking for someone’s purse to steal. When a free radical steals electrons from the cell, it damages the cell.

An antioxidant is a molecule capable of giving away electrons. Thus, when your mother says "eat your vegetables" she is saying that the vegetables contain electrons that are good for you.

We maintain our health and heal primarily by making new cells. To make new cells requires a voltage of -50 mV​

Salivary and urinary pH are about 0.8 pH units less than cell pH. Salivary pH is a rough indicator of cellular voltage. Urinary pH is a rough indicator of the voltage I the fluids around cells. When normal, both should be 6.5. If you add 0.8 to 6.5 you get a pH of 7.3. This equates to -20 millivolts.

Now let’s use the thumb as an example.  A thumb is running at a voltage of -25 mV. It is pink, feels fine and works well. Now is hit with a hammer. The thumb turns red, swollen, is hot and has a pulsing pain. It has automatically gone to -50 mV.  This is necessary to make new cells needed to replace the ones damaged by the hammer. At -50 mV, blood vessels dilate and dump raw materials such as proteins, carbohydrates, fats vitamins, minerals, etc. into the neighborhood. These raw materials are needed to build new cells.  Also needed, is -50 mV to have the energy to turn these raw materials into new cells.


As soon as the body is finished making enough cells to replace those that were damaged with the hammer, the thumb goes back to -25 mV. It is normal and I am happy.


Now let’s assume that the body ran out of voltage before it was able to make enough new cells to replace those that were injured. The voltage dropped to -10 mV. causing a state of chronic disease, where healing cannot take place unless it can make new cells. New cells cannot be made unless the voltage is at -50 mV, and all the raw materials needed to make new cells are present. In chronic disease, the thumb will hurt all the time, it turns white, and will not work very well.

Chronic disease is always defined as having low voltage.  One cannot cure chronic disease without inserting enough electrons to achieve -50 mV.  One must also have the raw materials necessary to make new cells and to eliminate the toxins or infections present that will damage the new cells.  You can take all the medications you like, and do as much surgery as you like, but you will not heal unless you have -50 mV, raw materials and lack of toxins.

Without the ability to achieve -50 mV and the necessary raw materials to make new cells, you cannot maintain your health and you suffer aging and chronic disease. You are also unable to repair injuries that can also lead to chronic disease. You don’t need drugs to heal. You need to make new cells that work to heal. To make good cells you need voltage and a good diet. You also need to remove toxins from your body that damage cells and make you obese.

At Infinite Biofield Medicine, you receive protocols from a practitioner trained by the Tennant Institute, and Dr. Jerry Tennant himself, in order to restore electrical balance back into your body, bringing you back to health.


In the following videos, Dr. Tennant explains in detail the science behind working with voltage in the body to regenerate health and vitality.
