Heal Yourself: Finding the Root of Disease Through the Jaffe-Mellor Technique

We all know something about alternative medicine. Many of us have probably even tried some form of it––Acupuncture, Chiropractic and other modalities. In fact, the World Health Organization indicates that over one-third of Americans have “sought treatment from an alternative practitioner.”

In successful cases, it’s given hope to people who couldn’t find relief through conventional Western models. But what about those people who have tried everything, but never benefitted long-term? Well, there’s one method of alternative medicine I want you to know about. It’s called the Jaffe-Mellor Technique.  

JMT™ is a proprietary system of treatment based on a method of assessing and evaluating the autonomic nervous system through a unique muscle response testing of both nonverbal and verbal questions and statements. This method is completely noninvasive. There are no oral supplements, injections or other applications provided for the patient. When evaluation discovers glitches in the autonomic nervous system, verbal corrective commands are utilized to repair the problem, thus enabling the body to heal itself. Acupressure stimulation or percussion of vertebral sectors and specific patterned breathing reinforces the process.

JMT™ commonly produces immediate changes in virtually all health issues resulting from glitches in what we call the human biocomputer. This is essentially the “hardware” of the human anatomy. Similar to online side-effects you’d experience with your computer, we tend to pick up the same kind of bugs that cause less than optimal performance. Failing to locate the root cause of the problem eventually leads to greater internal issues that can threaten the daily functioning of the hard-drive. When the human biocomputer is “online” (when we are alive), it malfunctions due to viruses, toxins, toxic emotions, and other hiccups in its nervous and immune systems.

The main concept of JMT™ is the human body can heal itself through “fixing” emotionally rooted problems. Many experts agree that emotions and emotional disturbances are underlying issues of all disease. In my practice, specifically in autoimmune issues, I have usually found the presence of some type of emotional trauma at the root of disease. This emotional trauma prevents complete healing.

Even when conventional or alternative medical management eases symptoms, there are commonly other expressions of trauma that occur. So, what about when emotional trauma has been treated on a conscious level? Many patients tell me things, “I have done lots of therapy.” However, the concept that our bodies retain cellular memory is often discarded. Even with therapy, the body remembers the emotional trauma and continues to respond in the same way. Emotional memories become locked inside each cell, and only upon release of these memories can true and complete healing can occur.

For example, consider an individual with multiple sclerosis (MS). This person could be effectively managing their symptoms by drugs or natural remedies. However, if underlying emotions are not resolved, that patient might eventually begin to manifest other problems like psoriasis or eczema. There are numerous ways that we as healers can guide patients in the release of these cellular memories, and I’ve found that one of the most effective ways is through JMT™.

JMT™ successfully addresses the symptoms of many disorders including but not limited to the following:

  • All forms of arthritis and chronic degenerative disorders
  • Allergy elimination
  • Interstitial Cystitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Trauma induced pain syndromes
  • Acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions
  • Emotional, sensory or motor neurological disturbances
  • Endocrine problems


Maybe you’re in need of a success story to believe the benefits. Here’s one from a patient of mine: This person had been suffering from severe acid reflux and violent heaving of bile fluids since undergoing surgery for stomach cancer. Although the surgery was life-saving, it created a malfunction leading from the stomach to the esophagus. This malfunction created a constant reflux of acid into her throat which made it impossible for her to sleep or eat much food.

After trying many forms of Western treatment (mostly pharmaceutical), she was frustrated and close to losing hope. Seeking alternative medicine in the form of acupuncture, she found Family Healing Center. She was first treated with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. While progress was made in reducing the frequency and severity of the episodes, the issues were not completely resolved. From there, we decided to try something even more alternative. You guessed it––JMT™. Unbelievably, we were able to completely resolve the problems.  

Similar to my patient’s success story, there are numerous other testimonials stating that JMT™ created a total pain reduction and illness resolution. If you or someone you know has tried other conventional or non-conventional therapies without success, it might be time to try this truly alternative method. After all, what do you have to lose? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if JMT™ were the one method that actually worked?
