The Jaffe-Mellor Technique (JMT™), which is named after its founders – Dr. Carolyn Jaffe, D.Ac., PhD in Naturopathy, and Judy Mellor, PhD in nutrition, Certified Oriental medicine herbalist and RN, is a revolutionary bio-energetic procedure that is used to significantly reduce and often eliminate pain and symptoms associated with certain inflammatory disorders.
Through years of clinical research, Drs. Jaffe and Mellor have discovered that the presence of specific “stealth” pathogens, also known as opportunistic organisms which attack and destroy our body’s tissues and cellular material, are part of the underlying cause of the inflammatory disorder. They term these destructive entities as the “External Pathogenic Factor” (EPF) and have found that many of our chronic, degenerative ailments are the result of their constant attack on our bodies. These pathogens are able to hide from our immune system, and while doing so their presence results in the chronic inflammatory process of pain and severe discomfort.(1)
JMT™ offers hope without the use of drugs, invasive therapies or surgery. As JMT™ practitioners, we have found that after eight, 15-minute treatments our patients report that their pain is greatly improved or completely resolved.
Reports from Jaffe and Mellor show that more than 75% of the symptoms of many inflammatory conditions were resolved after the eight basic treatments, and that this resolution appeared permanent based on follow-up evaluations conducted up to 18 months later.
What disorders can JMT treat effectively?
Degenerative disc and/or joint disease
Chronic sports injuries
Inflammation and pain from motor vehicle accidents
Irritable bowel syndrome
What does a typical JMT treatment include? With the basic eight JMT™ treatments, the acupressure and adjusting protocol will first focus on deactivating the pathogens which are causing the disease process. The next step of this first phase will be to “retrain” the immune system to stop attacking its own organs and tissues. Finally, with the follow-up “boost” treatments, the treatment will stimulate the body to continue to repair the cartilage in the joints and the damaged tissues systemically.(2)
