Ever since we moved into this new house I had trouble sleeping. I would awake frequently and had bad dreams....
During the course of my practice I came across a case which is worthy of mention. I had a lady client who complained of not feeling well....
The ancients, especially the Chinese, had long known about certain portions of the Earth surface that they recognized as being unfit for human habitation. The Chinese defined these as Earth Meridians with overwhelming negative energies they termed Sha Qi. However, it was not until modern times or in the early 1900s that serious thought was given to such anomalies and research studies were conducted. Until then there were diviners using dowsers to find out areas that were inimical to human life.
In 1929 Baron von Pohl, a German dowser by profession, was asked to dowse the town of Vilsbiburg in Bavaria. He found that paths of Shia streams criss-crossed the town, which directly related to high incidence of cancer and related deaths. He dowsed the town of Grafenau in 1930 and his findings supported his theory that vapors from underground fissures were responsible for cancers. The exercise was repeated again in Stetten, an area with the same affliction. He is credited with having developed a scale to rate Geopathic stress. Incidentally, the term Geopathy was first used by George Lakhovsky. It was his assumption that geopathic stress causes abnormally high frequency vibrations in the human body that affects the immune system and makes them susceptible to infections. The Baron’s work inspired scientists to delve deeply into the matter and they came up with the term Geobiology to correlate effects of environment on life forms. This gave rise to a new class of specialists who worked at surveying houses for geopathic and electromagnetic stress using scientific equipments and dowsing methods. Pierre Cody of Le Havre investigated cancer in the city using gold leaf electroscope and found that the air in the house of most of the victims was ionized higher than the usual amount. He attributed this to the presence of Radon, a radioactive gas.
Dr Joseph Wurst, a German scientist and JakobStangle, a German engineer, conducted experiments in 1950 and discovered gamma radiation in the houses of people affected with cancer. They used a Geiger counter. Stangle normally used a dowsing rod but went on to develop a scintillisation counter that was claimed to be more sensitive than the Geiger counter. He used it in Moulins, a French town and concluded that gamma radiation was responsible though latter researches showed that alpha radiation from Radon gas is the more dangerous of the two.
Next we have Dr. Hartmann who studied the effect of the Earth’s rays on human body over a thirty year period. He concluded that locations were primarily responsible for causing diseases by affecting the immune system. Dr Otto Bergsman headed a team of scientists to study Dr Hartmann’s theory. Their study in 1989 led to a report that gave details of serum value changed induced by exposure to areas having high geopathic stress. They used expert dowsers to single out areas of high geopathic stress. Test groups were placed within these areas and outside. Those within the high stress areas showed changes in serotonin levels that increased by a factor of 6. Immunoglobulin levels decreased significantly and blood corpuscle decline speed slowed down significantly.
In 1985 DrVeronikaCarstens published a study showing that in about 700 cases of terminally ill cancer patients, all of them regained health simply by moving their sleeping areas out of geopathic stress zones.
Studies showed that in animals and in human beings, presence of high geopathic stress changed the permeability of cell walls and magnetic orientation of microelements inside fluids in the cells causing disturbances in bodily functions. The studies also showed that when affected organisms were moved out, they regained normalcy.
In 1992 Dr Rudolf Kessler and naturopath and geopathologist Andreas Kopschina studied over 52 patients and identified geopathic stress as the underlying cuase. The study was funded by The Association of German Naturopaths. Thereafter, in 1994, Andreas Kopschina in association with Wolfgang and Ursula Daun, studied over 8200 patients which led to their concluding that geopathic stress is at the root of many malaises.
Since over a century there has been ongoing research into geopathic stress and its effects on life. In the 1920s Blanche Merze established a relation between full moon variations to rheumatism and geopathic stress to cancer. In the 1980s Otto Bergmann, Ralf Gordon and KatheBecheler independently tested hundreds of patients and homes for geopathic stress and its connection to disease and found a strong relation. In the 1990s Eugene Pallegard, Christopher McNaney and roger Rose established a strong connection between diseases and geopathic stress.
If a person stays continuously in a geopathic stress zone symptoms develop gradually starting with a feeling of discomfort, mood disorders, depression and physical slackness. Then the symptoms become more serious if he does not move out of the zone. These include sleep disorders, a sense of impending doom, drowsiness, weakness, fatigue and lack of appetite. Over years the stress on the human hormonal and immune system leads to serious complications.
Geopathic stress zones do not affect only humans; they affect organisms and even properties. Trees and any living organism cannot thrive in such zones and exhibit poor or stunted growth. Properties may become dilapidated, have a gloomy or depressing air about them and it is not easy to find ready buyers.
Methods used in Diagnosing Geopathic Stress
There are no instruments that can definitely and conclusively point to geopathic stress directly. As such it is difficult to convince people with figures. However, several indirect methods have been used since centuries to detect anomalies underground that point to existence of geopathic stress.
The simplest method of detecting geopathic stress is that if a person is chronically depressed, ill or suffers from low energy and sleeplessness; move him out of that area. If he improves, then the area in which he was spending his waking or sleeping hours would indicate presence of geopathic stress. The way people sleep in their beds is also an indicator. In areas with geopathic stress people tend to move away from the normal position and sleep to one side or change position frequently.
Pets such as cats, on the contrary, thrive in areas with geopathic stress since they tend to pick these places as their favorite. Dogs avoid areas with stress. Lower down the order in the animal kingdom, bacteria and parasites thrive on areas with stress. Birds will shy away but ants and termites show a preference for such locations. Trees show distortions in shape and abnormal growth in areas with stress.
All these conclusions are inferential and scientists may point to lack of tests and adequate figures to back up statements. However, a few have conducted scientific tests for effects of geopathic stress on the human body using instrumentation. The tests were based on measuring changes in human body voltage and skin resistance on areas with stress and out of the zones. This test is based on the premise that cells have a fine balance of potassium and sodium that exhibit electrochemical activity in conjunction with the nervous system. The skin has a definite galvanic resistance influenced by sweat and pore size. The skin resistance and body voltage levels change in accordance with hormonal activity triggered by internal and external stimuli. Scientists (N P Dharmadhikari et el) conducted a research to measure the effect of geopathic stress on the human body, measuring skin resistance with the help of a V-20 bio voltmeter.
Dowsing instruments identified presence of geopathic stress. Volunteers were chosen to under tests in these locations. Their galvanic skin resistance was measured and recorded in the zone and out of it. The findings showed that geopathic stress zones increase body voltage and the age of the person is also important since the voltage increases in more aged persons. On an average there is an increase of about 1 volt in the body voltage measurements when the person is inside the stress zone. Such increase creates imbalance, stress and if it is a long term exposure, then it leads to diseases.
Electrical resistance method is also applied on the earth’s surface to test for underground water, minerals and hydrocarbon deposits. A vertical electrical resistivity meter is used for this purpose. Four electrodes form the probes. A current is passed through the electrodes after earthing and the resistivity is measured to a depth of 50 metres and the readings are interpreted by experts. This method works on open grounds whereas the L-rod dowsing can work in buildings.
Some experts have relied on the use of gas discharge visualization (GDC or Kirlian) methods to identify stress areas. Researchers based tests on the works of Professor Konstantin Korotkov of the National technical University of St. Petersburg in the field of Kirlian photography. Whereas Kirlian methods rely on the intensity and color of the aura a living organism produces when introduced in a field of high voltage, scientists, while measuring for geopathic stress used software for analysis, clinical data of test persons and the Su-Jok system of acupuncture. The ongoing studies focus on the higher levels of alpha amylase and cortisol as a pointer to geopathic stress. Adolf Wiebecke invented a Geowave instrument to test groups of volunteers in geopathic stress zones and outside. GDV corona images of finger tips of people were compiled and analyzed and showed support for the effective use of this device for identifying locations of stress. Both corona image and biochemical tests as well as analyses were included in the study.
World about geopathic stress
Dr Gerhard W Hacker and associates studied the effect of Geopathic Stress in 1991 on the immune system and used the GDV equipment to analyse data from hundreds of volunteers and come up with concrete figures.
