ROBERT TOBOLSON, Energy Healer

Mr. Tobolson's full application file, including proof of media presence and affidavits, has been received.

Mr. Tobolson claims the ability to heal with 'energy fields' since having a vision of Jesus in 1975.

Included in the illnesses/disorders that Mr. Tobolson is able to heal are:

- curvature of the spine
- reversal of cerebral palsy
- nearsightedness
- farsightedness
- "the healing of cartilage"
- arthritis of the hands and fingers
- HIV
- diabetes
- influenza symptoms
- carpal tunnel syndrome

We have e-mailed Mr. Tobolson for clarification on several points, including whether or not the healing is immediate, how many individuals he may heal in one sitting, and whether or not the difference between before-and-after is objectively measurable.

For the purposes of the Challenge protocol design, we have asked Mr. Tobolson to focus on near- and far- sightedness rather than healing, to ensure the safety of volunteers involved.

More information will be posted regarding this claim as it becomes available.

Mr. Tobolson's Challenge File has been closed, due to a continued inability to express any specific details regarding the claim - including accuracy, conditions required to perform, and an inability to focus on a single claim.
