MME stands for Magnetic Molecular Energizer and it is closely related to a familiar medical diagnostic method know as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). MRI signals are used for visualizing internal organs such as the brain, spine, and liver.
The first MRI experiments were reported independently in 1946 by a group at Stanford, lead by Block and one at Harvard, led by Purcell. MRI subsequently discovered that nuclei resonate at slightly different frequencies depending on their chemical environment. This caused MRI to become an extremely useful tool in chemical analysis.
The first MRI signal from a live animal was obtained by Jasper Jackson in 1967. In 1972 Paul Lauderbur generated the first two-dimensional images from a water sample. Pictures of fruit, animals, and finally humans were obtained later during the 1970s. The first commercial MRI scanners became available around 1981.
However, MRI is strictly an imaging method and not a treatment method. In the early 1990s, Dr. Dean Bonlie began studying magnetism and its effect on the human body. He found that low strength, negative, magnetic field induced through the body by a layer of magnets beneath the body could provide relief from numerous symptoms, such as pain relief from arthritis and back pain, and sleep disorders.
This led to study and research of higher strength magnetic fields, similar to those produced by MRI scanners, as a possible treatment method.
