Abstract

The energy emitted by the earth at a specific surface location which affects the normal human body function is termed as geopathic stress (GS). Empirical knowledge of the existence of geopathic stress is probably as old as mankind. However, scientific investigation about effect of GS on human system is an area of research. The aim of this work is to study the effect of geopathic stress on human system by recording blood pressure (BP), heart rate (HR). The observation indicates the change in blood pressure and heart rate in geopathic stress zones as compared to nonstress zones.

Abstract
The energy emitted by the earth at a specific surface location which affects the normal human body function is
termed as geopathic stress (GS). Empirical knowledge of the existence of geopathic stress is probably as old as
mankind. However, scientific investigation about effect of GS on human system is an area of research. The aim of this
work is to study the effect of geopathic stress on human system by recording blood pressure (BP), heart rate (HR). The
observation indicates the change in blood pressure and heart rate in geopathic stress zones as compared to non-
stress zones.
Keywords: Geopathic stress zone, blood pressure, heart rate.
Introduction
It can be very hard for the modern, well educated,
pragmatic person to understand that there are disturbed
vibrations coming out from the earth beneath, which can
be harmful to human health. We have lived with the
natural vibrations which rise up through the earth’s
mantle for millions of years. When these vibrations
encounter subterranean running water, certain mineral
concentration, fault lines and underground plateaux and
cavities, their natural vibrations become disturbed and
harmful to living organisms. In case of running water,
normally 200-300 ft (60-90 meters) underground, an
electromagnetic field is created in opposite direction to its
flow by friction which then creates strong unhealthy
vibration. The effect of these higher vibrations has been
called by many names such as black streams, cancer
rays, negative green rays, Hartmann and Curry line and
even ley lines. However, over the years now it is called
Geopathic Stress (GS) (Gordon, 2005). The Chinese
knew the harm Geopathic Stress (GS) could cause over
4000 years ago and avoided building houses on stressful
places. Often people could be punished if the building
was on what they called ‘dragon line’. Extensive work has
been published by various researchers to understand the
effect of GS on the built environment (Kathe, 1989;
Milliren, 1993; Pohl, 1993; Croome, 1994; Freshwater,
1997; Storozuk, 2002; Saunders, 2003; Thurnell-Read,
2006). Possible influences attributed to geopathic stress
phenomena have been widely reported by the mass
media, albeit without scientific proof. Apparently,
geopathic stress does not only influence humans but all
kind of animals, plants, fungi and bacteria (Hacker
et al
.,
2005; Dubrov, 2008; Hacker
et al
., 2008). Dowsing, a
valuable and low-cost way of detecting potential wells
and circumventing effects of possible geopathy, e.g. in
bed rooms, is being used all over the world. However,
only few studies exist dealing with abilities of dowsers in
a scientific way (Christopher Bird, 1993; Betz, 1995). The
effects of GS on human system have not yet been proven
by scientifically accepted techniques except a few
(Dharmadhikari
et al
., 2009). The existence of the
phenomenon has been known for a few thousand years,
may be even since the early roots of mankind.
Publications presenting scientific evidence of direct
measurable effects of presumed GS on human system
are very rare (Gridin
et al
., 2008). Heart rate is the main
important health parameter of human body. Blood
Pressure and heart rate depends on many factors like
hormones, cations, age, gender, physical fitness, body
temperature etc (Gadzicka, 1996; Jauchem, 1997;
Derrickson, 2006). However, an attempt is made first time
to study effect of GS on human body by measuring blood
pressure [(Systole Pressure (SP), Diastole Pressure
(DP), and Pulse rate (PR)], heart rate inside and outside
geopathic stress zone.
Experimental details
With the help of expert dowser; using copper
L-rod and Light Interference Technique many locations of
geoapthic stress were identified on the Mumbai-Pune
express-highway and residential area of Pune city. Only
male candidates of various age groups were tested for
changes in their blood pressure & heart rate in GS and

ECG machine was used to
measure the human heart
rate in bpm (beats per
minutes). The jelly used was
silver chloride which is
specialized for ECG. The four
limb electrodes were used for
both hands and legs. One
electrode was used for chest
i.e. suction cup electrode.
Each heart beat produced a set of P-QRS-T
waves which were recorded on rhythm strip

Results and discussion
Fig.2 indicates that the variation of blood
pressure (systole, diastole pressure) for
normal and pre-identified geopathic stress
zone. The results indicate that both the
systolic & diastolic
blood pressure for GS
zone varying in
comparison with normal
zone for different
sample groups. To
perform in depth study
for determining the
variation of blood
pressure in geopathic
stress zone and normal
zone, a large number of
people from different
age groups are sampled
to measure their blood
pressure. Fig. 3
indicates the variation of
blood pressure (SP &
DP both) with various
age group people in
normal & pre-identified
geopathic stress zone.
The overall variation in
systole blood pressure and diastole blood pressure
seems to be random. The micro analysis suggests
notable decrease in systole blood pressure in
the age group of 26 to 29 years and 40 to 48
years people. The diastole blood pressure is
found to decrease in the age group of 26 to 28
years where as for the age group 38 to 42 years
random fluctuations are noticed.
Fig.4 indicates that pulse rate of samples are
both, greater as well as lesser in GS zone in
comparison to normal zone. A more detailed
study is carried out further for large number of
samples to know the exact nature of pulse rate
variation with age. Fig.5 depicts variation of
pulse rate in normal & pre-identified geopathic
stress zone for people of different age group.
There seems to be a zigzag variation in pulse
rate in normal as well as pre-identified

geopathic stress zone. The nature of the variation in
pulse rate for different age group seems to be of
approximately same nature for both zones. Upto the age
group of 25 years, pulse rate is observed to be more in
normal zone in comparison to geopathic stress zone. 25
year onward the pulse rate is observed to be more in
geopathic stress zone. Between the age group 30 to 40
years, similar variation with no specific pattern of increase
or decrease with respect to normal and geopathic stress
zone are observed. Above 45 year age, pulse rate in
normal zone is found to be less than GS zone. This
indicates no specific pattern / effect of geopathic stress
zone on pulse rate for different age group samples, but it
certainly indicates some effect of GS zone.
Fig.6 indicates that heart rate of a sample is more as
well as less in GS zone in comparison to normal zone. A
more detailed study is carried out further for large number
of samples. Fig.7 indicates variation of heart rate w.r.t.
normal on pre-identified geopathic stress zone in different
age group. The nature of variation of heart rate is
observed to be approximately of same nature for normal
and GS zone. For most of the age group, in GS zone
heart rate is found to be less in comparison to normal
zone except the age group 30- 35years. Although this
indicates the effect of GS zone but more rigorous study
may be required to reach to any concluding remark.
Fig.8 indicates change in heart rate in percent Vs
Age. In this case, the positive value of heart rate means
HR gets increased and negative value of
heart rate means HR gets decreased. It is
observed that heart rate of the human vary
about 10% to 15% due to geopathic stress
zone in comparison to the normal zone.
Conclusion
The significant difference in the physical
parameters noticed lead to the conclusion
that the GS zone exerted different influence
on the normal functioning of the human body
especially changes in BP and HR. The
common effects of GS zone observed
includes feeling run-down and exhausted,
depression, nervousness, headaches, tingling
in arms and legs etc. depending upon age group. As a
result, different retardation of immune system and other
organ may occur. Though GS doesn’t cause any serious
illness, it can be predicted that it may lower immune
system and one’s ability to fight off virus and bacteria.
The scientific basis of the conclusion is explored in this
paper. In the present study, the candidates were exposed
to GS zone for 20 minutes. However, it is felt that for

further study of effect of GS zone on people, they may be
exposed for a longer duration to the GS zone say 6-8
hours(especially during sleeping period). This will also
help in arriving at a better conclusion. By generating a
larger data base, studies as regards establishing the co-
relation between the various parameters await further
research.

Geopathic Stress is a distorted or disrupted electromagnetic field of the Earth causing harmful radiation to emanate from earth surface. The source of the causes for Geopathic stress are the underground streams of water, faulty magnetic grid lines, concentration of mineral deposits and underground fissures. In olden days, most of our civilisations had knowledge about the Geopathic stress as Earth’s radiation energy and their impact on Human beings. However, our research findings by scientists lead to numerous investigations about effect of Geopathic Stress on human system. The purpose of this work is to study the potential impact of geopathic stress on human system by measuring Heart Rate which is an indicator of stress level of human body and the impact on plant machineries by recording breakdown hours. This has been observed during our study that the Heart Rate in geopathic stress zones are higher as compared to nonstress zones which leads to higher stress level of human being. During our course of work, we have found that Geopathic Stress zones not only affect health of people but also affect breakdown rate of machinery and equipment’s kept in Geopathic stress zones. Machines kept in geopathic stress zones tend to have more breakdowns when compared with machines kept in normal zones.
... Apparently, geopathic stress does not only influence humans but all kind of animals, plants, fungi and bacteria (Gerhard, 2008;Dubrov, 2008;Von Pohl, 1993;Gak, 2008). The effects of geopathic stress on human body have not yet been proven by scientifically accepted techniques except a few (Dharmadhikari, 2010). The existence of the phenomenon is archaic. ...

Bk.) Pune-48, (MS) India. Geopathic stress zones are places on the surface of the Earth known to cause health problem. Empirical knowledge of the existence of geopathic stress is probably as old as mankind. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of geopathic stress on human body. It further tries to scientifically evaluate dowsing phenomenon by measuring body voltage, skin resistance, using V-20 bio voltmeter, GSR-2 biofeedback system(R) respectively in and around the pre-detected geopathic stress zones on the Mumbai-Pune express way and some residential areas of Pune city (India). Healthy male volunteers were subjected to the stress in prospective study. The observations indicate a change in body voltage, skin resistance in geopathic stress zones as compared to non-stress zone.

بعد إقرار منظمة الصحة العالمية في بداية الثمانينيات وجود ما يُطلق عليه متلازمة المباني المغلقة أو المباني المريضة والتي كان من أهم أسبابها تتعدد المؤثرات المتواجدة في الفراغات المعمارية والتي كان لها تأثير على الحالة الصحية والإنتاجية للمتواجدين بتلك الفراغات والتى من أبرز أسبابها مصادر المجالات الكهرومغناطيسية Electromagnetic fields (EMF)، خاصة الهواتف المحمولة والتي أصبحت متواجدة بكثافة في كل الفراغات المعمارية التي يتواجد بها الأفراد، والتي تتفاعل الإشعاعات المنبعثة منها مع أعضاء الجسم البشري ما يؤدي الى ظهور العديد من الأمراض والأعراض التي تم رصدها في الكثير من الأبحاث والتجارب، فقد صار إيجاد حلول لإزالة الآثار الضارة لهذه المؤثرات مشكلة تقع على عاتق كل مصمم ومعماري يسعى لتصميم مساحات آمنة وصحية لقاطني المباني. وبما أن العديد من الدراسات والأبحاث أظهرت أن التشكيلات المعمارية لها دور في تحسين الحالة الصحية للأفراد المتواجدين في الفراغ، وأن بعض التشكيلات تعمل على رفع كفاءة الجهاز المناعي ودعم الإستشفاء الذاتي، فقد سعى البحث إلى التحقق من صحة ودقة هذه المعلومات والتي تفيد بإن هناك تأثير متبادل بين تشكيل الفراغ وسلوك الطاقة به ما يؤثر على صحة قاطنيه، وذلك من خلال إستعراض وتحليل الدراسات والتجارب السابقة التي حاولت التحقق من مصداقية وجود ما يطلق علية أسم (قوة الشكل أوالتشكيل)، وتم اختيار خمس تشكيلات معمارية شاع عنها تاريخياً ومن خلال الدراسات والتجارب احتوائها على قدرات خاصة (من حيث التأثير الإيجابي على صحة القاطنين بها)، واختبارها معملياً في إحدى معامل المركز القومي للبحوث، عن طريق تصنيع نماذج صغيرة منها متماثلة في الحجم واللون ومادة الصُنع، وجعلها صالحة للعيش من قِبل فئران التجارب، والتي تم تسكينها داخل هذه الفراغات لمدة ثلاثة أشهر، وتعريضها للأشعة المنبعثة من الهاتف المحمول والمقدرة بقيمة تردد 880 -915 ميجاهرتز، ثم اختبار بعض العوامل الحيوية التي تُعد مؤشراً للصحة العامة لهذه الكائنات مثل وظائف الكبد، ونسب تواجد عوامل ومضادات الأكسدة، و بعض اختبارات السلوك الدالة على مدى تأثر الذاكرة طويلة المدى وقصيرة المدى و القدرة على الإدراك والتركيز وعدم التردد واختبارات فحص مجهري لرصد الحالة الصحية لخلايا المخ والكبد. وقد أظهرت بيانات التجارب أن الإشعاع الكهرومغناطيسي الصادر من الهواتف المحمولة قد تسبب في اضطرابات في المؤشرات الحيوية لوظائف الكبد ومعلمات الإجهاد التأكسدي في الأنسجة الكبدية ودم الفئران، كما تسبب في حدوث اضطرابات في وظيفة الحصين والحالة الإدراكية والذاكرة، وتضرر واضح في أنسجة وخلايا المخ، كما أظهرت نتائج التجربة أن المعيشة داخل الأقفاص أو الفراغات ذات التشكيلات المعمارية التاريخية (التي تم تحديدها وفقاً للأدبيات والتجارب السابقة) قد أضعفت مُعظم التأثيرات الصحية السلبية، وجاءت النتائج بشكل متفاوت في إشارة إلى أن لكُل شكل تأثيره الخاص، ومع ذلك فإن الآلية الدقيقة الكامنة وراء هذه الآثار لا تزال غير واضحة، وفي النهاية قد توفر هذه الدراسة إرشادات للمصممين والمعماريين لاستخدام هذه التشكيلات المذكورة في إنشاء المستشفيات والمدارس وغيرها من المباني القريبة من محطة الترددات الراديوية الخاصة بالهاتف المحمول كوسيلة للتخفيف من ضعف الإدراك ولتحسن الذاكرة المكانية ولتحسين الوظيفة البيولوجية.

Geopathic Stress is the energy from the earth surface which is the biggest threat to the built environment. Energy emitted by the earth surface which has ability to change the normal functioning of human beings is termed as Geopathic stress. World health Organisation in 1992 has identified that a building can make a person sick. The presence of ground water vein is closely associated with generation of such a stress and in turn it affects the built environment. Built Environment constitutes houses, roads, footpaths, shops etc. Geopathic Stress affects almost each and every part of the built environment. This energy penetrates metals, concrete and other substance which have high degree of impermeability. Although moving away from a stress zone is easier in residential built environment but it is difficult for the road environment where the accidents occurs because of such stresses. In the road environment, concrete may get deteriorated and cracks may get developed because of such stresses. The chances of lightening are more on such geopathically stressed zones. Also if geopathic stress is present on road environment, it may lead to increased reaction time of drivers in turn responsible for occurrence of accidents. If people sleep on such stress zones, they are susceptible to various diseases like cancer. Hence ‘GEOPATHIC STRESS’ is the threat to the built environment.

Energy from subsurface of earth at specific location that has ability to change the normal functioning of human system is called as Geopathic Stress. Suitability of the site in ancient times is carried out by different tests (Bhumi Pariksha), architectures and civil engineers were very particular in selecting the site for dwelling but in recent past geopathic stress is rarely considered spatial planning. Recent studies have shown that it is one of the causes for inception of disease. Places on road affected by this stress are prone to accidents. This paper highlights about the significance and need of considering Geopathic stress as one of the parameter for spatial planning. Research shows that the Geopathic stress from nadir direction changes the reaction time of the driver which in turn leads to road accidents. Thus, by considering the aspect of Geopathic stress for planning, a safe and sustainable development of infrastructure will of benefit to the mankind.

Cardiovascular changes in humans exposed to nonionizing radiation [including extremely-low-frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF EMFs) and radiofrequency radiation (RFR)] are reviewed. Both acute and long-term effects have been investigated. In general, if heating does not occur during exposure, current flow appears to be necessary for major cardiovascular effects to ensue, such as those due to electric shock. Whereas most studies have revealed no acute effect of static or time-varying ELF EMFs on the blood pressure, heart rate, or electrocardiogram waveform, others have reported subtle effects on the heart rate. The possible health consequences of these results are unknown. Regarding long-term effects of ELF EMFs, reports from the former Soviet Union in the early 1960s indicated arrhythmias and tachycardia in high-voltage-switchyard workers. Subsequent studies in Western countries, however, did not confirm these findings. These studies are limited by uncertainties regarding exposure durations and appropriate control groups. Investigations of acute cardiovascular changes in humans purposely exposed to RFR have been limited to studies of magnetic resonance imaging (which, in addition to RFR, involves static and time-varying magnetic fields). It has been concluded that such exposures, as presently performed, are not likely to cause adverse cardiovascular effects. Reports of hypertension in workers potentially exposed to high levels of RFR during accidents are considered to be incidental (due to anxiety and posttraumatic stress). Soviet investigators have also indicated that long-term RFR exposure may result in hypotension and bradycardia or tachycardia. Other researchers, however, have been incapable of replicating these results, and some scientists have attributed the effects to chance variations and mishandling of data. In summary, studies have not yielded any obvious cardiovascular-related hazards of acute or long-term exposures to ELF EMFs or RFR at levels below current exposure standards.

Empiric knowledge of the existence of geopathic zones ('water veins' etc) is probably as old as humankind. It has often been tried to experimentally detect direct influences on the body. However, so far, there have been no publications in accepted biomedical journals. The target of this study was to verify influences of 2 different zones above ground on the human body and to test a device for which pilot studies have indicated a potential harmonizing effect in this context. Using a randomized, non-clinical, double-blinded trial design, 52 persons were tested with a gas discharge visualization (GDV) system whilst staying on 2 zones with or without the Geowave device (Geowave-Research, Salzburg, Austria). The 2 zones investigated had been dowsed by experienced professional dowsers and labeled with black dots in a non-persuasive manner, thereby blindly representing areas of geopathy or more neutral zones. The main analytical parameter was the GDV glow image area (area of glow). Complementary calculated parameters were spatial fractality, corona projections and corona diagrams. In the geopathic zone, the detected areas of glow were statistically significantly smaller than in the more neutral zone. With the Geowave blindly mounted in an adjacent room of the above story, a marked increase of the glow image area was found in both zones. The corona projections showed well-recognizable points of body energy deficits in the geopathic zone, mostly associated with the lymphatic system, the cardiovascular system and the pineal gland, which were -- to a distinctly lesser degree -- also present in the more neutral zone. The device tested yielded compensation or harmonization in both zones in most of the test persons. The significant differences in the physical area of glow parameter, which were also noticed for the complementary parameters analyzed, lead to the conclusion that the 2 different zones within the same room (geopathic vs. more neutral zone) exerted different influences on the human body, which may have caused a geopathic stress phenomenon. As a result, individually different retardation of the immune system and other organs may occur. The device tested in both zones showed harmonizing effects, which may help to compensate some influences of geopathy and possibility also superimposed stressors derived from certain other sources, such as technical electromagnetic fields.
The idea of stress as a factor in ill health is now widely accepted and the effects on the body are relatively well-documented. The true range of the causes is not so much in evidence. Geopathic stress as a causal link to ill health is usually ignored as most people are unaware of its presence. This article explores the concept of geopathic stress, its effect on the environment and the implications of this for the individual's healing process. It is argued that geopathic stress can undermine both the body's subtle energy system (the etheric body, chakras and meridians) and the body's electrical system (brain, heart and muscles), thus delaying healing and recovery. A challenge is made to all health-care professionals who are dedicated to the development of holistic care to further their understanding and awareness of this phenomenon.

This study was undertaken to evaluate the neurovegetative regulation of the heart in workers occupationally exposed to medium frequency (MF) electromagnetic (EM) fields. The subjects were 71 workers of MF broadcast stations, aged 20-68 (mean 47.1) with the duration of work under exposure ranging from 2-40 years and 22 workers of radio link stations, aged 21-65 (mean 46.9) who were not exposed to MF EM fields. The distribution of age and work tenure in both groups did not differ significantly. Heart rate variability (HRV) was analysed basing on 512 normal heart evolutions registered in resting, from the body surface, using the Medea-HRV system. The analysis concerned time-domain and frequency-domain parameters of HRV using fast fourier transformation. Power spectrum in the low (0.05-0.15 Hz) and high (0.15-0.35 Hz) frequency bands (LF and HF, respectively) was determined. Statistically insignificant differences found between exposed and non-exposed groups were found either in time- or in frequency-domain parameters of HRV. No correlation between the power spectrum and the subjects age was noted. Such a relationship, however, could be observed in the control group. In the study group a statistically significant negative correlation was found between the maximum intensity of EM fields and HF power spectrum. Thus it was concluded that occupational exposure to EM fields brings about impairments in the neurovegetative regulation of the cardiovascular function.
