Geopathy is a Greek word where ‘Geo’ means ‘Earth’ and 'pathos means' disease. In other words it the ill health of the earth or the ill effects of the energy which emanates from the earth at certain sites. Recent advance study & research carried out in various parts of the world have resulted in identifying geopathic stress which can result in the creation of harmful atmosphere in a building. The sick buildings syndrome which is also recognized by the World Health Organization points to the fact that illness can be due to working or staying in a sick building.
Initially, it Was thought that inadequate ventilation and improper air conditioning as well as poor air quality were responsible for illness of the staff. But even after rectification of all these defects the problem in all sick buildings have not disappeared. The view is slowly gaining of around the geopathic stresses could be one of the factors resulting in imbalance in the energy field.
Geopathic stress has been accepted as a possible phenomenon and it has been acknowledged by several western thinkers that electromagnetic spectrum with the frequency of the earth waves can resonate which in turn can affect certain energy fields inside a structure which have bearing on health and happiness of an individual. The western thinkers also believe that some other types of radiations can pervade the building and can cause many unexplained diseases including cancer.
The work on stress was first started in 1920 by Winner and Melser in Germany. A link between cancer and geopathic zones was established by study conducted on thousands of inhabitants. Several sources have taken study of geopathic stress in Geopothic and France. Geopathic stress of the earth energy is believed to come from several sources like the earth’s magnetic field radiation forces created due to movement of plates inside earth, forces due to flow of underground streams and so on. It can occur in any building irrespective of its use.
It is believed it can affect plants and animals also. Similarly, modernization which has brought in tremendous amount of electromagnetic spectrum in the form of microwaves and other electronics transfer mediums have contributed to geopathic stress. Is It Was Dr. Manfed Curry who first hypothesized that there is a grid network of electrically charged lines of natural origin which encompasses the globe? These lines are flowing from northeast to southwest and southeast to northwest at approximately 3 meters distance. Curry hypothesized that where the lines cross; there is a double positive or a double negative energy which can disturb the balance in a humane boy.
