Jackie Jordan had suffered from gastrointestinal difficulties most of her life. When she was 6, she was diagnosed with pseudo-obstruction of the bowel and hypo-plastic bladder. Children with this disease normally do not live into their teens, doctors told her family.

In 2001, when she was 11, she went into toxic shock the week before Christmas. Every organ in her body shut down. Her parents rushed her to the hospital. Her temperature was 93, her blood pressure was 30 over 13, and the medical staff could read no significant vital signs. She was in intensive care on full life support for a week. Two months later she left the hospital, with liver disease, damaged organs and numerous other issues.

A top pediatric gastro-intestinal doctor in Pittsburgh told her she was not a candidate for organ transplants. The family worked to keep her nourished through artificial means. She struggled to reach 60 pounds by the age of 12.

Again, Jackie was admitted to Texas Children’s Hospital. It was Easter Sunday, 2003. A gastro-jejunal (G-J) tube was implanted in her stomach to feed her. She couldn’t tolerate the formulas, and her stomach leaked constantly. Jackie’s mom, Linda, had to change the bandages around the clock. And the pain Jackie experienced was excruciating. Once again, she was in the hospital for months. She finally was allowed to go home in June.

A month later, Jackie begged the doctor to remove the feeding tube. Even after it broke, the doctor would not remove it. Jackie was losing hope of ever feeling better. Linda and Jim Jordan prayed for a doctor who could find a cure for Jackie. Then the call came.

One of Jackie’s teachers called Linda, insisting the Jordans take Jackie to Dr. Robert Sones, who had helped her in a fight against breast cancer. “Oh, no, not another doctor,” Linda thought. But the teacher insisted that this Dr. Sones was not just another doctor. He was a “healer.” So Linda made the appointment for the following Monday.

The teacher insisted that this Dr. Sones was not just another doctor. He was a “healer.”

On Monday, July 28, 2003, Linda carried Jackie into Dr. Sones’ office. He examined her and determined that she needed to have her nervous system balanced. Using the Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique, he treated Jackie and balanced her energy field and nervous system. The leaking from the stomach bandages stopped – immediately. And the pain stopped. After being in pain for three years, for Jackie Jordan, this was a miracle.

And in some ways, it seemed a miracle for Bob Sones as well. “When I examined Jackie, I observed and demonstrated to her and Linda that she had a ‘timing’ problem related to her condition. Using B.E.S.T., we balanced her autonomic nervous system and restored normal function. I was as amazed at her body’s immediate response as the Jordans were. I would never say that I heal anything. I am not ‘the power.’ But I recognize that when you remove the interference to this natural process, the power to heal can begin to express itself.”

Two days and two sessions later, Jackie returned to Texas Children’s Hospital. For the first time in two years, Jackie was able to walk into the clinic. For the first time in her life, her blood work was normal. From then on, Jackie’s health continued to improve. Three months later, the G-J tube was removed. Six months later, Jackie’s organs were functioning on their own. She even experienced peristalsis, or normal digestion, for the first time in her life.

“You have to understand that all of our knowledge is about equal to three grains of sand on the beach,” commented one of Jackie’s doctors, Dr. John Mathias, M.D., Neuro-gastroenterology, in discussing Jackie’s amazing recovery with one of his colleagues. “If we are to discover the fourth grain, we have to have an open mind.” Dr. Mathias was Professor of Medicine and Director of Gastroenterology at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas, from 1989 to 1996. Now practicing in the Houston Medical Center, he contributed greatly to Jackie’s outcome.

Jackie continued to improve, and, even after being out of school for three years, was able to complete her eighth grade curriculum and graduate with her classmates.

For Linda and Jim Jordan, Jackie’s healing was a miracle. For Bob Sones, it was an incredible affirmation of the body’s ability to do what it was designed to do – heal itself.

What Our Patients Say:


Jackie loved to live, and she lived to love. We will always love her. We miss her very, very much.

– Linda and Jim Jordan

Jackie: In Celebration and Memory

In 2005, Jackie’s immune system was compromised by food poisoning. After years of taking antibiotics, Jackie’s intestinal tract had severe bacterial overgrowth, and she couldn’t respond to conventional medical treatment. Jackie passed away on November 9, 2005, at the age of 15.

Jackie’s family firmly believes that Dr. Sones’s care enhanced Jackie’s life for two years. Jackie was able to live fully with joy and vitality. Her life was an inspiration to so many who knew her or heard her story.
