Geopathic Stress

There’s nothing like snuggling up in a warm bed to make us feel relaxed warm and safe. But the very we go when we feel unwell could actually be making us ill. It’s all down to Geopathic Stress. Geopathic stress - or harmful earth rays - is natural radiation that rises up through the earth and is distorted by weak electromagnetic fields created by underground streams, certain mineral concentrations and fault lines. The wave lengths of the disturbed natural radiation can seriously affect our health, causing cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME) infertility and miscarriage. While we are asleep our body should be resting so it can repair body cells, fight infections and absorb nutrients from food. However, if we sleep in an area affected by geopathic stress, our body has to use all it’s energy just to keep  vital organs going. As a result our immune system becomes weakened, which means it doesn’t absorb nutrients or fight off infections effectively. To locate geopathic stress dowsers visit land, offices and homes where they  seek  the location of underground streams, geological faults or the earth’s natural grid lines. As of yet there is no acceptable scientific explanation for dowsing. However, for thousands of years people from all over the world have been finding underground water for wells and mineral deposits to mine by dowsing methods. Remember it’s the energy from the water and other artefacts that they first respond to as it rises from deep beneath the ground to the surface.

The first studies that proved a link between cancer and geopathic stress were carried out in the early 20th century in Austria and Germany but, so far geopathic stress has been largely ignored in the UK. The phenomenon has been linked to insomnia, migraine, headaches, loss of balance, short -term memory loss, joint pain, cot death, infertility, miscarriages, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME) and cancer. Women are more likely to be at risk from geopathic stress because their hormonal systems are more susceptible. Foresight, the pre-conception care organisation, even suggests that couples trying for a baby should get their homes checked for geopathic stress and ensure that electrical equipment is not located under their beds as this can cause electromagnetic stress and deplete the immune system.
For many of us who fall sick and seek the help of a doctor a few minutes is spent discussing symptoms and lifestyle quickly followed by the doctor scribbling on a proscription pad. It may surprise you therefore, that in many European countries, Germany and Austria in particular, one of  the first questions the doctor may ask is about the  location of your bed and how long have you been sleeping there. These questions are routinely asked not only by several thousand doctors, but also many cancer specialist hospitals will recommend a Geopathic Surveyor or Geobiologist as they are often called to investigate your home before deciding on a course of therapy or reaching for the prescription pad. The search, using both dowsing methods to locate geopathic energies and scientific instruments to detect man made electromagnetic energies will  determine whether your illness is linked to geopathic stress electromagnetic stress or both. If so, you will be advised how to avoid or eliminate these harmful energies from your home so you stand a better chance of responding to any treatment given.

The most common types of energy fields that cause geopathic stress emanate from underground Streams and Geological Faults

Geopathic Stress:    Is the result of spending long periods working or sleeping above any building or place where the natural energy of the Earth is disturbed by weak electromagnetic fields created by underground streams, certain mineral concentrations, fault lines and cavities.  Some early symptoms often experienced above these geopathic zones are related to restlessness, headaches, insomnia and fatigue. If you continue to stay in these areas especially during sleep, then in the long term the stresses on our bodies will emerge as more serious conditions such as, diseases of the central nervous system, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), miscarriages, and cancer. While we are asleep our body should be resting so it can repair body cells, fight infections and absorb nutrients from food. However, if we sleep in an area affected by geopathic stress, our body has to use all its energy just to keep its vital organs going. As a result our immune system becomes weakened, which means it has difficulty in absorbing nutrients or fighting off infections as efficiently as it should.

In Germany and Austria today there are signs of the seriousness with which geopathic stress is taken. Not only are the public more generally aware, but their governments funds aid and continuing research in to the matter. In some schools children are moved at frequent intervals to avoid possible harmful effects. Reports from other countries such as Switzerland, France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Scandinavia indicate that they too have been taking notice.

Can These Geopathic Energies be Neutralized?

There are many factors that can contribute to an illness. Geopathic Stress is only one of them and it is becoming more difficult to gauge especially when the natural energy field is constantly changed and amplified by man-made electromagnetic fields. If geopathic stress is suspected, it makes sense to move away from the source or to think about dealing with the threat. Moving may be relatively easy but neutralizing it is fraught with many problems. Claims and counter claims abound regarding devises to achieve this, leaving the public in total confusion. From an incredible range of gadgets offered there are many tales about their ineffectiveness or of making the receiver feel much worse. There are many products on the market that claim to cure some or all geopathic zones of its noxious energy. Most of these claims are quite dubious and do not stand up to the most rudimental scientific testing. Fortunately there are now a growing number of dowsers that are equipped with scientific monitoring instruments that can test such claims.

Geopathic Stress Documentary

If you find time, this geopathic stress documentary is extremely interesting  and compliments the work I have been doing over the last 12 years and 30 years my father before me with the same conclusions. Click on link:   

Classical Early Symptoms of Sleeping Above an Underground Stream

Energy depleted state.     Panic attacks.     Insomnia.      Depression.     Headaches.      Short term memory loss.   Loss of balance.      Hypersensitivity to light  Muscle and Joint pains.    Candidacies.       Energy depleted state.   

    Long term exposure in combination with other types of energy such as Hartman lines, high electromagnetic fields or geological faults can give rise to optimistic abnormal cell growth and cancer. It has been known for a long time that when there is flowing water under a dwelling the inhabitants always feel more tired, are prone to premature aging and have a loss of vitality than those who sleep above neutral ground. While water running beneath a domestic dwelling should be avoided, a stream situated nearby and open to the sky will favourably discharge its negative energies harmlessly into the atmosphere.

The Vienna Report

Research in to the Biological Influences of Geopathic Locations

[Institute of Consumer Research and Product Marketing Vienna]


Germany has long been the seat of research in to the biological effects that pathogenic locations can have on both human and plant biochemistry. These pathogenic locations defined in the report as, ‘earth radiation's evoked by a discontinuity of the normal physical parameters on the surface of the earth,’ and shortened to ‘Disturbed Zones’ are the subject of the research.

Historic roots of the investigation are built on claims that pathogenic zones exist at certain locations and that sleeping or spending long periods of time above them are linked to cancer, debilitating diseases of the central nervous system, chronic fatigue and general ill health. Such locations have been termed in China and many European countries as either ‘cursed’ or ‘cancer’ houses. The aim of the report is to establish whether these ‘Disturbed Sites’ can produce statistically significant results to support the high degree of topicality the phenomenon is having in both main stream and alternative medical practices. cancer.

The research was conducted by a team of distinguished professors, doctors, engineers, scientists and dowsers. The functioning hypothesis of the research was that geophysical characteristics of the surface of the earth are not uniform and that location dependent influences exist that can have a detrimental effect on both human and plant biochemical systems.

To test this hypothesis the research team used the services of three dowsers known for there expertise in locating earth energies. They were enlisted to independently dowse eight different locations and submit reports and diagrams of the strongest ‘Disturbed Zones’ found, together with a ‘Neutral Zone’ at the same location to enable them to carryout double blind experiments with volunteers at each selected location. The dowsers found that the greatest pathogenic influences came from the movement of Underground streams, Hartmann/ Curry Global Grid lines and Geological Fault Lines.. In order to rule out possible influences of man made electromagnetic or microwave disturbances at each location an independent report from an electromechanical engineer was requested for each chosen site.

The medical biological Investigations at both the ‘Disturbed Zones’ and the ‘Indifferent Zones’ were standardized:

1. Investigations after 15 minuets stay on Indifferent Zone. 
2. Investigations after 15 minutes stay on the ‘Disturbed Zone’. 
3. Investigations again after a further 15 minute stay on an Indifferent Zone.

In some investigations the stay times were extended and included an additional investigation after 5 minuets stay on the ‘Disturbed Zone’

At present, these so called ‘Disturbed Zones’ can only be indicated by dowsers, with its presence being then verified with scientific instrumentation. Technology does not yet exist to do this the other way round; the dowser does not yet appear to be replaceable with scientific instrumentation.

Volunteers were sought to participate in these experiments. As a rule clinically healthy subjects between the ages of 20-35 years were screened. A number of these were rejected when illnesses (circulation interference and infections) were discovered. Other participants were also used from the Outpatients Department for Physical Therapy in the Rehabilitation Centre, Grobming and from the Surgery of Dr. Korinek. The research program was carried out between September 1987 and December 1988. None of the volunteers used were given information about the relative ‘Disturbed Zones’ and ‘Indifferent Zones’

Research Results (Vienna Report)

The Project 
The project involved the testing of 24 different biological parameters involving 985 trial volunteers in 6,943 investigations using 462, 421 individual measurements.

In 12 of these parameters results were significant to highly significant. 
In 5 of the parameters there were tendencies to significance. 
6 parameters proved negative.

17 of the parameters proved positive. However because of the high standard of the research only significant results were accepted.

Decoder Analysis of the Total Bioelectric Status 
This investigation was significant and was carried out on a number of patients from a country medical practice. The stereotypical result on the ‘Disturbed Zone’ was deterioration of the electro-biological functioning in the sense of depression or blockage of bioelectric functions. Three silver electrodes were used placed on the forehead, palms and soles; a microprocessor based unit automatically produced the results.

Heart Frequency Reaction (HFR) 
In these investigations measurements from an electrocardiogram (ECG) were used in both sitting and lying down positions. Three circulation parameters were measured and two further calculated. All measured parameters gave reference to location dependence with the integral rake size for Systolic ventricle work showing significantly different behaviour. This deterioration of the HFR was thought to be due to ‘Location load’ from the ‘Disturbed Zone’. The ECG normalized after leaving the ‘Disturbed Zone’. It was reckoned with over 95 – percentile certainty that there is a location influence on the governing system of the circulation.

Akrale Re-warming Time 
The temperature measurement at the finger tips revealed that after standardized cooling on the ‘Disturbed Zone’ the Rewarming time is delayed significantly.

Optical Flicker Fusion Frequency 
This test measures the psycho sensory capabilities of the person. In the 15 minute time exposure on the ‘Disturbed Zone’ the results remained under the significance barrier. It was thought however, that if the experiment allowed further time exposure the investigation may have achieved a significant result.

Coordinative Vegetative Rhythm 
Passive rhythms such as breath and pulse frequency operate in balanced Coordinative rhythms especially when at rest. The ratios of these vegetative rhythms were tested on both the experimental zones. The Biometric analysis showed that on the ‘Indifferent Zone’ the pulse-breath quotient remained in balance but was significantly affected on the ‘Disturbed Zone’.

Muscle Frequency Analysis 
Significant location variations in the distribution of the muscle action frequencies were found in areas of electric muscle potential. This suggested an interference of the endogenous rhythm created by the ‘Disturbed Zone’

Humorale –Biochemical Parameters 
The three Immunoglobulins that were examined; IgA, IgG, and IgM showed clear reactions on the ‘Disturbed Zones’ that were partly and high significant. The immunoglobulin IgA showed the most significant drop on the ‘Disturbed Zone’. These values however normalized when later blood samples were analyzed after the subjects were tested on the ‘Indifferent Zone’

Calcium and Potassium 
On ‘Disturbed Zones’ potassium levels increased with a rising significance and calcium increased significantly.

Under certain conditions traces of the element zinc increased highly significantly on the ‘Disturbed Zone’

Decreased by a factor of 6 on the ‘Disturbed Zone’ whilst increasing its metabolism to advance Tryptophan in compensation. This reaction was highly significant.

Blood Sedimentation Speed 
Investigations comparing the Blood Corpuscle Decline Speed on the ‘Indifferent Zone’ and the ‘Disturbed Zone’ yielded significantly different behaviour in 452 double investigations in 112 days. Blood sedimentation speed slowed down whilst on the ‘Disturbed Zone’

Conclusion of Report

The ‘Location Effect’ of the ‘Disturbed Zone’ on regulatory systems of the human organism is proved without doubt and raises the question of which substratum, subsystem or system the location dependent powers primarily attack.

The test results were lined up by Biometric Significance and are valued with the Serotonin and the Blood Corpuscle Decline Speed (BSG) in lead position.

Serotonin is diminished on the ‘Disturbed Zone’ and its metabolism advances the tendency for Tryptophan to be increased. The latter can be noted as a compensation process. One of the main functions of Serotonin is to act as a neurotransmitter in the parasympathetic system which controls energy provision.

The research team concluded that there was no evidence to relate ‘Location Load’ to a specific illness but should be rather determined as a risk factor that can reinforce the effect of different pathogenic factors. ‘Location Load’ as a result of spending time above a ‘Disturbed Zone’ belongs to other similar risk factors such as; 
• Environmental Chemicals, Poisons & Pollutants. 
• Malnutrition / Diet 
• Recreational Drugs 
• Alcohol 
• Psycho social Stresses 
• Genetic Weaknesses 
• Electromagnetic Pollution

The term ‘Location Load’ is synonymous to ‘Geopathic Stress’ which more generally describes the phenomenon in both Great Britain and the United States
