Geopathic Stress (Also known as Geomagnetic Radiation)
‘Geopathic’ comes from the Greek words ‘Geo’, meaning ‘of Earth’, and ‘pathic’ comes from ‘pathos’ meaning disease or suffering. ‘Geopathic’ therefore connotes disease of the earth.
In simple terms, Geopathic Stress is the detrimental effects on living things that occur when the natural frequency of the earth is distorted by natural or certain man-made structure or radiation. The resulting ‘negative earth energies’, as they are often termed, can create discomfort and even diseases.
Earth is a giant electromagnet; its core produces natural electric currents and magnetic waves. This natural Earth radiation can be distorted by other weak electromagnetic fields — caused by various underground formations such as running water, mineral concentrations, geological fault lines and cavities — as it rises up through the earth. Geopathic Stress (GS) can also result from electromagnetic fields produced by electrical wiring, lighting, domestic appliances (clocks, computers, microwave sets, radios and TVs), telephones (cellular phones) and power-related equipment (electrical generators, transformers and pylons).
Closely associated to GS is Schumann Resonances (SRs).
SRs — named after German physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted the phenomenon mathematically in 1952 — are global electromagnetic resonances generated by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere (a layer of the earth’s atmosphere, from 80 to 1,000 km above the earth’s surface, which contains a high concentration of ions and free electrons and is able to reflect radio waves).
The fundamental SR frequency (there are other frequencies) is 7.83 Hz; this is often termed the resonant frequency of the earth, or the natural frequency of the magnetic field of the earth, and produces a ‘natural Earth radiation’.
As mentioned in the introduction to Geopathic Stress above, this natural Earth radiation can be distorted or disrupted by subterranean formations — running water, mineral concentrations (eg, coal), geological fault lines and cavities (eg, caverns).
Other structures that can disrupt the natural frequency of the earth are man-made structures such as roads, railways, bridges, embankments, fences, steel pilings, water mains, gas pipes, sewers, underground bankers, tunnels and mines/
Human Brain Alpha State
Around the time that Schumann published his research results, a physician, Dr Ankermueller, realised that the fundamental SR frequency was very close to the frequency of alpha brainwaves, the first waves ever detected (hence the name after the first letter of the Greek alphabet).
This was verified in 1979 when human EEG recordings were compared with the natural electromagnetic fields of the environment.
The frequency ranges of the human brain in different states are:
Gamma Waves (40 to 100 Hz)
Beta Waves (12 to 40 Hz)
Alpha Waves (8 to 12 Hz)
Theta Waves (4 to 8 Hz)
Delta Waves (0 to 4 Hz)
As you can see, Earth’s fundamental SR frequency corresponds very closely to the frequency at the low end of the range of the human brain’s alpha waves. The alpha brainwave state:
Has been shown by neuroscientists to be associated with increased relaxation, enhanced creativity and lower depression;
Has been shown by sports scientists to precede peak performance;
Is the state most associated with meditation and yoga.
Effects on Health
GS happens when you spend long periods sleeping or working above any place or in a building where the Earth’s natural radiation is distorted (‘GS zone’).
Sleep is one of the pillars of health. Deep sleep is essential for both body and mind; during deep sleep, your cells are repaired or replaced; your kidneys clean your blood; your organs detoxify; your wounds heal; you have more resources available to fight infections; and, very importantly, you consolidate your memories.
Some of the common early symptoms associated with sleeping in a GS zone include bad dreams, behavioural problems in children, fatigue, grinding of teeth, headaches, insomnia, restlessness and sleep-walking.
Prolonged sleeping or working in an area of GS is likely to lead to more serious conditions such as allergies, Cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Depression, diseases of the central nervous system, Infertility and Miscarriages and Multiple Sclerosis.
Cancer is usually the most feared of these. Cancer tumours develop almost always at exactly the spot where two or more GS lines cross a person’s body as they lie asleep in their bed.
It’s important to note that GS itself does not produce disease; it lowers your immunity system and hence your ability to combat disease.
While some stress is good for the body, prolonged stress is known to adversely affect health. Your body reacts to stress in general, and GS in particular, by modifying its output of hormones to adapt to the stress. This non-natural state of affairs ultimately affects other systems in the body, causing disease.
Over the years, GS has become stronger; this is attributed mainly to the weaker ozone layer that protects the earth letting in more solar radiation and development from urbanisation, modernisation and globalisation. It is believed that the stronger GS is the main factor behind the rising cases of terminal illnesses such as cancer.
Many countries, particularly Austria and Germany, take GS very seriously. Their governments provide aid and conduct research on the matter; their citizens are generally more aware of the harm GS can do. Some schools move their students at frequent intervals to avoid the harmful effects of GS. Other countries such as Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the Scandinavian countries are beginning to follow suit.
What Proof Is There Of Harmful Effects?
GS has been found to be a significant cause of both minor discomforts (allergies, feeling tired, grinding of teeth, etc) and major diseases and psychological conditions (Cancer, Infertility/Miscarriages, Multiple Sclerosis, etc), especially those caused by the immune system being severely compromised.
Here is a tiny sampling of these studies:
Baron Freiherr Gustav von Pohl, a German scientist and dowser, provided evidence to the Central Committee for Cancer Research in Berlin, Germany, in the 1950s that the likelihood of contracting cancer was low unless one had spent a significant amount of time in a GS zone, especially during sleep. In fact, after extensive study of the phenomenon over the course of his life, von Pohl concluded that every single disease could be linked to GS!
Dr. Hager, M.D, the President of the Scientific Association of Medical Doctors, examined the houses of 5,438 people in the town of Stettin, USA, who had died of cancer; in all cases, strong GS lines crossed their homes.
In the 1970s, Austrian schoolteacher and dowser Käthe Bachler conducted one of the most extensive research projects ever held on GS. She interviewed 11,000 people and dowsed 3,000 apartments in 14 countries. Her conclusions were shocking: of 500 people with cancer she checked, everyone was found to be sleeping over GS lines, and 95 percent of the ‘problem’ children she found slept in beds or worked at desks placed over GS lines.
In 1985, Dr. Veronika Carstens, M.D, published a study documenting 700 cases where terminal cancer patients worldwide had fully recovered from terminal cancer when their sleeping area had been shifted from a GS zone. All these patients had tried conventional medicine and were regarded as ‘lost causes’ by their doctors.
The German physicist Robert Endross, together with Professor KE Lotz of the School of Architecture of Biberach, Germany, analysed 400 cases of death from cancer; they found that 383 of the cases involved living over geological fault lines or underground water channels, or living in areas where the natural magnetic field of the earth was disturbed.
The late Dr. Hans Nieper, a German doctor, had identified GS in 92 percent of his cancer patients and 75 percent of his Multiple Sclerosis patients. Dr Nieper ran one of the biggest MS practices in the world, in Germany.
Dr Rambeau, M.D, President of the Chamber of Medicine in Marburg, Germany, spent three years looking for cancer patients whose beds were NOT situated in a GS zone. He failed.
After treating thousands of cancer patients over 30 years of practice, German doctor Dr Ernst Hartmann concluded that cancer was a locational disease, triggered by living in a GS zone. He went on to say that cancer cells are produced in the body everyday but the immune system is able to destroy them unless it’s been weakened by GS.
How Do I Know If I am Geopathically Stressed?
The most common effect of GS after relocating to a new home is a disturbed sleeping pattern. If your bed sits directly over a GS zone, you are almost certainly going to be affected since you spend so many hours in that spot.
You may find yourself waking up at odd angles in bed. You will unconsciously push yourself as far away as possible from GS lines. Children will most likely sleepwalk. Cold and restless feet, respiratory conditions and asthma are other typical signs of GS.
General signs and symptoms include:
You rarely wake up feeling refreshed; more often than not you wake up feeling more tired than you were the night before.
You always feel in poor health, and stop responding to medications.
You always feel as if something is not quite right at home. You no longer feel comfortable at home, and prefer to stay away.
You begin suffering from a serious medical condition, after relocating to your new home, which just will not respond to medication.
The house you are living in has a history of, or is associated with, serious illnesses.
Specific signs and symptoms of GS include appetite loss; bedwetting; depression; falling asleep on the couch but not in bed; feeling cold; grinding of teeth; nightmares; problems with neighbours; restless sleep; road rage and stressed relationships.
In a weak or sensitive patient, or someone who has been exposed to GS for a long time, the body loses its natural homeostasis (the tendency to seek and maintain a condition of balance or equilibrium within the internal environment, even when faced with external changes), leading to being afflicted by several diseases and negative psychological effects.
Remedies & Measures
In the millennia since GS was discovered, several measures, modern and ancient, preventive and neutralising, short-term and long-term, have been devised to counteract the effects of GS. We can only briefly cover them here.
Before you can come up with a solution for the GS affecting your home or workspace, you first need to be aware of it.
You may want to learn how to identify GS zones: how to read the signs in nature, how to read the sleeping patterns of the people in your household, watching the habits of your pets, etc. You may wish to enlist the services of a professional space auditor, a person trained to detect, classify and measure GS lines.
Then you want to avoid spending too much time in a GS zone, wherever possible, or take steps to neutralise these ‘negative earth energies’, if avoiding a GS zone is not possible.
Recognizing or Detecting GS Zones
Certain animals like and thrive on GS zones while others avoid it.
Animals that thrive on GS are bees, wasps, snakes and cats. Bees produce more honey when beehives are placed on GS zones (showing that GS is not always bad).
Cats like GS zones, but they also like non-GS, warm and cosy places, so a cat’s favourite resting place does not give any firm indication.
Animals that avoid GS are dogs and some fish such as goldfish.
Walls in GS zones develop cracks or attract mould more easily. Roads sections in GS zones are more prone to potholes, and road accidents happen more often there. Non-fireproof material, especially hay, are more likely to catch fire.
You can procure and learn to use a Lecher Antena or Y-shaped instrument developed by Ernest Lecher to detect GS
You can also use Applied Kinesiology or ‘muscle testing’, a technique in alternative medicine that tests muscles for strength and weakness to diagnose or determine a wide range of things, including disease and treatments.
Currently, the latest scientific instrument uses Electro Photo Imaging to collect data that provide the Space Auditor to evaluate GS vortex.
Repositioning Your Furniture
Clearly, once you have determined where the GS zones in your home or workplace are, your easiest and cheapest approach to avoiding GS is simply to reposition any beds, work-tables and chairs that lie in these zones. Start with your sleeping and working places; these are the places where you spend the most amount of time. Other places to look out for are the living room and kitchen.
GS Instruments and Tools
Today, there are many instruments or tools on the market designed to shield your home or office, or support the personal energy of members of your family. These include crystals (very popular), energy plates, geo-resonators, pendants, pyramids, space harmonisers and even devices with laser beams.
Not all of these tools and instruments work. Part of the reason is that GS has become stronger over the years, mainly because of constant urbanisation and massive modernisation.
Do your homework: read widely, contrast alternatives and ask practitioners for references.
