Most of you have may have heard about the controversy surrounding the detrimental health effects associated with living in close proximity to mobile phone masts and power lines and the possible health dangers associated with using a mobile phone for long periods of time. Indeed many studies have been done linking Electromagnetic radiation to cancer and leukaemia. But have you heard about Geopathic Stress? In many European countries having a survey for Geopathic stress before buying a house is automatically undertaken just as in this country (UK) we automatically engage the services of a surveyor before buying a house.

So what is Geopathic Stress?

Geopathic stress is the effect of detrimental earth radiation and electromagnetic radiation on the health of your body. The Earth has a natural magnetic field; it acts as though it has a large magnet at its centre. The rotation of the earth creates electrical currents in the molten metals found within its core, thereby producing a magnetic field. Human beings have evolved with this background magnetic field; they are accustomed to living within its presence. Geopathic stress occurs when the Earth's magnetic field is disturbed, either naturally or artificially, and the background field we normally experience is changed. This can happen when the natural radiations which rise up through the earth are distorted by weak electromagnetic fields created by subterranean running water, sewers, drains, certain mineral concentrations, fault lines and underground cavities. Natural radiation disturbed in this way can become harmful to humans. Mining, foundations for tall buildings, quarrying, underground transport systems and public utilities (sewage, water and so on) can cause man-made disturbances to the earth’s magnetic field.  

Geopathic stress is not only electromagnetic in origin. Geopathic stress can be caused by energies, emanating from the earth, vibrating at a level beyond the electromagnetic spectrum currently recognised and detected by conventional science and technology. These energies are often referred to as earth energies and can be bad, good or neutral. Earth energies have many different features but most problems are caused by underground water streams and straight energy lines often referred to as Ley Lines, Curry Grid Lines and  Hartman Grid Lines. Curry lines were discovered by Dr. Manfred Curry and Dr. Wittmann as a global grid network. As was the Hartmann global grid network discovered by Dr. Ernst Hartmann. It is mainly the crossing points on the Curry or Hartmann lines that cause health problems. Any feature which affects the earth's natural magnetic field will most likely also affect the Earth energies as these are linked in some way.

What are the effects of Geopathic stress?

Spending long periods of time over a detrimental area produces a stress reaction in the human body. This is the same as stress produced by any other means. The effect is gradual, involving a slow deterioration in health. The body becomes more and more debilitated by the on-going effect of the stress and the person becomes ill. Blood pressure may remain inappropriately raised; excess acid may be produced by the stomach, leading to stomach ulcers; decreased activity by white blood cells will lead to less effective resistance to viruses and bacteria. The person may have difficulty in sleeping as the body is on continuous alert. In this situation the body becomes undermined, reducing resistance to colds and flu and more serious illnesses such as cancer. It is possible that geopathic stress might be a significant factor in the onset of cancer. For a full list of symptoms and effects of geopathic stress see the symptoms page.

Effects of Underground water

The effects of underground water are evident up to several floors up. The adverse health effects may include deprivation of regenerating sleep resulting in arthritis, cancer, enhanced production of microbes encouraging mould and rot, degenerative diseases and rheumatism. The molecules of moving underground water interact with the structure of the strata it is flowing through, producing a positive vertical electric field, a DC generated magnetic field, radio frequencies ranging from 87 - 101 MHz and ultra-short waves which are organized into narrow bands about 6-8 cm wide.

In 1989, a group of researchers in Austria completed a two-year study on the short-term consequences of human association with detrimental earth radiation sites. Some 985 people were tested with 462,421 measurements recorded from 6,943 tests. The working party was headed by Dr. Otto Bergsmann (Internal Medicine), a professor at the University of Vienna. A 158 page report gave details of changes in the serum values of serotonin, zinc and calcium after being exposed to these noxious fields for a period of ten minutes. There were many other altered states to biological functions noted as a result of short-term exposure to these forces. This group has now linked with two universities in Austria studying the effects of disturbed zones on the immune system.  Indications thus far support the findings of Dr. Ernst Hartmann who claimed that the protective role of the immune system was undermined when immersed in emissions of detrimental earth radiation.

Dr. Paul G. Seeger, Former Chief of Cancer Research, Charite Hospital, Berlin, Germany said: “No serious-minded criticism,  be it ever so prejudiced, can afford to ignore proofs of the existence of pathogenic telluric influences. Hundreds of cancer institutes all over the world have spent billions without having found any convincing proof of cancer’s cause. Why has it not been possible to spend a few million of that huge sum for a thorough investigation of telluric radiation as a prime cause of cancer in human beings? Why has this newly discovered continent of knowledge not been applied to cancer prevention?”

Dr. Wilhelm Von Gonzenbach, Professor of Hygiene and Physician-in-Chief for the city of Zürich, Switzerland.

“Just because we have insufficient knowledge of the physical nature of Earth rays is no reason for us to ignore a phenomenon that is at least a century old for, after all, most therapeutic methods in medicine were developed empirically through practical experience and only theoretically explained in the laboratory much later on.”

Dr. Joseph Kopp, Consulting Geologist, Ebikon, Switzerland, 1975

In the not too distant future, it should be possible to draw up regulations making mandatory examination of existing and future building sites to discover whether they are affected by pathogenic telluric influences. No hospital or school should ever be constructed without checking for some for subsurface water currents below its prospective foundation. An effort must be made to introduce the concept of geohygienic planning to the world. If this can be accomplished, I believe we will witness a marked decline the degenerative disease.”

Where can it occur and what are the indications?

People sleeping above an area of geopathic stress often have disturbed sleep patterns and wake up feeling tired and irritable. Babies and children do not sleep well and this causes problems for both themselves and their parents. Because we spend about a third of our lives in bed negative energy in this area can cause serious complaints. The atmosphere in the house or part of it may be depressive or gloomy or may just not seem right. There may be something people just don't like about the house, even though they can’t “put their finger on it”. Certain houses may be difficult to sell. Geopathic stress can affect the fabric of the building. Pavements and walls may crack, plaster become damp and light bulbs blow for no apparent reason. Redecorated rooms still feel gloomy and “not quite right”.

Shops do not prosper if built on geopathicaly stressed ground because prospective customers will not want to stay on the premises. Offices or places of work may have an unusually high absentee or sickness rate compared to average. In fact anywhere where we spend a significant amount of time, geopathicaly stressed ground will effect our well being.

Although detrimental energies affect our health, there are certain organisms which prosper above these energies; examples of these are: cherry, nectarine, peach, elderberry, mistletoe, fir and oak trees; cats, bees, ants, insects, bacteria and parasites. Alternatively, along with us humans, the following are examples of organisms which suffer from being exposed to detrimental energies: apple, pear, nut, beech, and plum trees; currant bushes, lilacs and sun flowers; dogs, horses, cows, pigs, chickens and birds. So, for example, wherever your dog likes to rest is a good place for you. Cats on the other hand indicate the opposite.

What can we do?

First of all we should pay particular attention to where we spend a large proportion of our time. The most important place is our bed where we spend about a third of our lives, followed by for example, our work place, school, college, favourite chair or kitchen. We need to be able to be aware of any detrimental area and avoid it wherever possible, by, for example, moving our bed or chair.

How do you know if an area is detrimental or not?  

That is the service we provide. See our Survey Method page for detailed information
