Studies have shown that over 85% of patients who die from cancer have experienced regular exposure to geopathic stress.

Geopathic stress has been found to be the common factor in many serious and minor illnesses and psychological conditions, especially those conditions in which the immune system is severely compromised. Any natural weaknesses or genetic disorders can be amplified. The major risk factor is an increased possibility of cancer. While geopathic stress does not directly cause cancer, it weakens the body and makes it much more likely to acquire cancer.

Some early symptoms often experienced above these geopathic zones are related to restlessness, headaches, insomnia and fatigue. Compounded stress on our bodies caused by prolonged stays in these areas –especially during sleep– may develop into more serious health conditions such as disease of the central nervous system, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, infertility, miscarriages and cancer.

Geopathic stress also prevents the body from properly absorbing vitamins, minerals, trace elements, etc. from your food (and supplements), and often creates an allergy to food, drinks and environmental pollution.

Geopathic stress lines or zones emanate EMF radiation naturally from the earth due to geological features such as underground streams, mineral concentrations, fault lines and underground cavities.

Man-made alterations of the landscape, anything from underground cables to road construction projects, can create or intensify geopathic stress.

Geopathic stress lines can span from two to 200 feet, and reach a height of 600 to 30,000 feet. Their direction is random and may be horizontal, vertical or diagonal. When natural radiation rises through the earth from geopathic stress lines, its wavelength becomes distorted. These distorted fields of radiation are harmful to all living organisms.

A study carried out by Dr Eugene Melnikov, Director of the Medical and Ecological Department, St Petersburg, Russia, looked specifically at an area covering five square kilometres of interconnecting streets. Every hospital and medical record of those individuals living in the area was checked. Where there was no geopathic stress, little or no occurrence of oncological or other diseases showed. In the geopathically stressed areas, 90% of oncological cases occurred. There was also a direct correlation between childhood leukaemia and GS.

In January 1929, German scientist Baron Gustav von Pohl, a talented dowser who believed that earth radiation affected tree growth, animal behaviour and human health, set out to officially prove that cancer deaths only occurred in people who had been sleeping in beds positioned above a powerful “water vein” (underground stream). In collaboration with the Berlin Centre for Cancer Research, Baron von Pohl investigated, i.e. dowsed and recorded his findings, in the town of Vilsbiburg in Southern Germany. Using his own ‘Pohl’ scale of earth radiation, the scientist mapped earth energy lines in the town, then compared them to the records of the district hospital. It was found that every single one of the 48 recently recorded cancer deaths had occurred in people who had been sleeping in beds standing exactly above one of the powerful “water veins” (underground streams) Pohl had mapped before seeing the medical records . The then district physician Dr. Bernhuber MD confirmed the accuracy of von Pohl’s stated correlations.

With this officially supervised investigation, von Pohl furnished incontrovertible proof that all cancer deaths of the previous years registered in the Lower Bavarian town of Vilsbiburg concerned people who had been sleeping above a powerful “water vein”, with no exception to this rule.

In 1950 a German medical doctor, Ernst Hartmann MD, was dowsing for water and discovered what became known as the Hartmann Net. Hartmann, who published two books on the noxious impact of energy lines (Krankheit als Standortproblem Bd. 1 + Bd. 2), spent decades researching the phenomenon. He found that if people worked or slept over the meridians of earth energy, they could suffer heart attacks, insomnia, chronic asthma, migraines, backaches and cancers. He discovered that constantly disturbed and crying babies would settle immediately when their cot was moved. He further found that sleeping on a North/South line made people prone to cramps and rheumatism, with an East/West line making them prone to inflammations. But most notably, he documented three generations of a family who all slept in the same bed in the same house where two Hartmann lines intersected and who had all died of stomach cancer. Starting in 1953, Ernst Hartmann published observations on the connection between the incidence of unexplainable diseases and earth radiations, recording his experiences from a medical viewpoint. Up until his death in 1993, Dr. Hartmann had been searching for a cancer patient whose bed was not standing in a place affected by noxious earth rays – without finding a single one.

In the 1970s, Austrian schoolteacher and dowser Käthe Bachler started one of the most extensive and recent research projects into the earth radiation phenomenon. Working in collaboration with medical doctors, Käthe Bachler dowsed over 3,000 sleep and work places in 14 countries interviewing 11,000 people. In next to all unexplainable cases of ill health, they found earth rays to be the cause of the disease. Not only did she find that 95% of the ‘problem’ children that she investigated slept in beds or worked at desks placed at harmful sites, but she also checked 500 cancer cases; every one was found to be sleeping over harmful radiation.


How to test for geopathic zones: 

The old method of dowsing from an experienced and accurate dowser is still the most effective mean of detection.

Beds positioned over geopathic zones must be shifted to another place. Metal bed frames and innerspring mattresses, as well as EMFs from electrical appliances, can have a detrimental effect too.

It may be a bit presumptuous to say that the above-mentioned geopathical zones CAUSE cancer, however, it is possible that they CONTRIBUTE to the causation of cancer and therefore should not be overlooked in a holistic treatment protocol.


Radiation, Microwaves, EMF, Wireless

There are always two side of an argument when it comes to new developments.  Usually the corporate world, which produces the items, argues that it’s all safe. They pay for doctor reports, university studies and research papers to have reviews that are written in their favour. Patients, on the other hand, have less money and can only voice their concerns via the internet.

Electric fields are generated by an electric potential and magnetic fields are created by a flow of electric current. Combinations of these elements are called Electromagnetic fields or EMFs.

EMFs are emitted by everything that uses electricity, like home appliances, lighting, computers, wireless devices, phones, transformers, home wiring, power lines and many, many more.

Many patients have developed a sensitivity to EMFs and know how debilitating it is to their health. The whole nervous system is on constant overdrive.The body reacts like it is under an immune attack.

A reaction to EMF is not necessarily an intense experience. Headaches, nausea, sensitivity in the eyes, and other symptoms, are often hardly recognised. Nevertheless, these symptoms are a sign of an over stimulus of the nervous system.

We are energy and all of our bodily functions are regulated down to the minute electrical currents in our bodies. EMFs interfere with these impulses and send false signals to and from the brain. In fact, the body is like an antenna receiving countless interfering signals, which is perceived as stress.

In a German laboratory they modulated the frequency of EMFs into audible sounds which could be heard by the human ear. The sound was similar to screeching bats and scratching fingernails on a chalkboard. Dissonant horror sounds in many different layers are overpowering the ear.

There's a heated debate as to what electromagnetic field (EMF) level is considered safe. Since the experts have not come to an agreement, we have to decide for ourselves.

Dr. Robert Becker, MD, has been studying the effects of EMFs for 20 years. He recommends a 1 mG safety limit in his book, ‘Cross Currents’. When electricians try to solve a magnetic field problem, they do their best to drop the level to 1 mG or below.

Many government and utility documents report the usual ambient level of 60-Hz magnetic field to be 0.5 mG. Thus, any reading higher than 0.5 mG is above the "usual" ambient exposure. Many experts and public officials, as well as the few governments that have made an effort to offer public protection, have adopted the 3 mG cutoff point. The EPA has proposed a safety standard of 1 mG as has Sweden.

Dr. Nancy Wertheimer, a Ph.D. epidemiologist who has been studying EMFs for 20 years, has been looking at the epidemiological data in a different way - she is trying to associate EMF levels with health rather than disease. She supports levels even lower than 1 mG. Russian researchers claim that 1/1000ths of an mG should be the standard.

The ‘BioElectric Body’ states that there are several stages of health between optimum wellness, degenerative disease and cancer. Thus, we should maintain our own living and sleeping quarters at 0.5mG and below.


Cell phones

There are a number of organisations world-wide that have reviewed the research on radiation health risks and have issued strong cautions about them, including the council of Europe, the European Environment Agency, the International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety, UK Trades Union Congress and the Russian Commission for Electromagnetic Safety.

The World health Organization (WHO) and the National Toxicology Program have also studied the effects of non-thermal radiation on human health. Their updated results are that, among other things, radiation can significantly increase the risk of glioma, a deadly brain tumor. They have classified wireless radiation as a possible carcinogen, the same as lead and DDT.

The biological impact of the cell phone is related to its power, which is weak but rather erratic in nature. This signal has the ability to disrupt resonance and interfere with DNA repair. Research has shown that wearing a cell phone on the hip may weaken an area of the pelvis. Cell phone radiation has also been found to affect men's sperm count and the quality and motility of their sperm.

Women who carry their mobil phone tucked away in their bra are at risk of developing breast cancer.

A study by the University of Newcastle in Australia found that sperm exposed to cell phone radiation die three times faster, swim significantly more poorly, become more deformed and experience significantly more damage to sperm DNA (EHT 2009).

It's important to realise that as long as a cell phone is on, it emits radiation intermittently, even when no actual call is being made. So wearing a cell phone on the hip for fifteen hours a day is giving that area nearly continuous radiation exposure.

The most common symptoms experienced with WIFI are:

  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Impaired memory and concentration
  • Sleep disorders
  • Digestive problems
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Dizziness.

Electric blanket

Electric blankets create a magnetic field that penetrates about 6-7 inches into your body -- for hours at a time. This qualifies as chronic exposure.

Epidemiological studies have linked electric blankets with miscarriages and childhood leukemia.

Recent data reported in the American Journal of Epidemiology suggests that the regular use of an electric blanket may increase breast cancer risk in some women, and according to a 2007 report published in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention, using electric blankets was associated with a 15 percent higher prevalence of endometrial cancer than never having used one. The same study also revealed that the use of electric blankets for 20 years or more was associated with 36 percent higher prevalence of endometrial cancer.

Other studies have shown that the EMFs generated by electric blankets suppress melatonin production. Melatonin is the most important detox agent for your brain and is also an anti-inflammatory. Electromagnetic radiation can make inflammation worse by creating more potent mycotoxin, so reducing inflammation is vital.

Research included in the BioInitiative Report mentioned above have also found links between melatonin disruption and the promotion of breast cancer.

Safe Alternatives to Your Electric Blanket

  • Flannel sheets
  • An extra blanket
  • Wear socks, or even a hat, to bed
  • A hot water bottle.


Cell Tower Mobile Phone Mast

The radiation of a cell tower is continual 24/7 and living within a 300 to 400 meter radius could be dangerous. Perform due diligence before purchasing a home or apartment to ensure that mobile phone mast levels are low. Check with and the town's zoning board to ensure that no new masts are planned in the area. Note that poor signal reception on mobile phones may be misleading, because it may be low for one provider but high for another. Relying upon visual inspection is also difficult, since some cell towers are concealed. The best way to check is with a meter.

Neighbours next door may also contribute to external wireless radiation, e.g., if they have a Wi-Fi router or DECT cordless station on the other side of the wall. Again, only a meter will tell the truth.


General Tips to Reduce EMF Exposure

  • Avoid charging phones in bedroom
  • Try to hard wiring your computers in your home. If this is not possible then try to sit as far away from the router as possible.
  • Turn the router off at night.
  • Never use a laptop directly on your lab.
  • Don't care mobil phones in your bra unless it is switched off.
  • Texting is healthier than calling.
  • Use speaker phone when calling.
  • Try to avoid metal furnitures. Radio frequency reflects off metal and can create unknown hotspots. Especially stay away from metal bed frames and spring mattresses.
  • Don't use baby monitors as they produce high levels of radio frequencies very close to the babies head.
