JENENE LEHMAN, Physical Imbalances

Jenene Lehman has completed the application, and is in the process of negotiating a testable protocol for her claim.

Lehman states that she is able to tell if an individual is suffering any kind of physical imbalance, which would include an injury or chronic illness, or pain.

Since detecting an "imbalance" is not conclusive, we asked Lehman if she could match the chronic illnesses individuals suffered from to the series of imbalances she found within an individual. For example, if we presented her with an individual who suffered from migraine headaches, would she know it was migraine headaches (if she was given literature on the problem) by noting that the imbalances were mostly in the head?

She agreed to this protocol. We asked her if she would be able to tell individuals who had Pacemakers, metal plates in their heads, or bone screws by the location of those imbalances, and she wasn't sure.

Lehman states that she does not need to touch an individual to detect the imbalances, and that all subjects may be under thin cotton sheets during the process. However, the process can take up to half an hour for each subject.

Because of the length of time involved, we began working out ways to limit the scope of the search for imbalances, and are considering a protocol that uses lancets, like those used in diabetes bloodsugar tests, to prick the fingers of participants.

The fingers would then be bandaged, and Lehman would have to search for the imbalance to determine which had been pricked.

More information on whether this protocol will work for Lehman will be available soon, so stick around for updates!

Jenene Lehman has responded, saying that she would be unable to tell which finger had been pricked.

According to Ms. Lehman, since a lancet prick is a minor imbalance, she would become confused with other minor imbalances in the fingers like nicks on the nails, old fractures, soforth.

She says this will not affect the original protocol, which was a matching game for major, chronic illnesses.

We are still meeting with the issue of time constraints, since a full body reading would take quite a bit of time and require a recovery time period for Ms. Lehman. It will also be uncomfortable for the person being read, as they would be under a sheet.

If you have ideas regarding an alternate protocol that would limit the scope of Ms. Lehman's search for imbalances but not revolve around minor imbalances, please discuss it in the MDC section, and I'll stop by and check it out.

The problem will be finding a number of people with chronic illnesses that she could read. This is a Twin Cities area test.

Check back for more soon!
