Geopathic Stress Anyone?

While out tonight taking photos I was approached by a curious hotel worker. It’s not every day one sees a guy standing around with a camera and a tripod, especially on a cold night!

We started talking, and as usual, the topic of housing came up. When I mentioned I was in the process of buying a house he asked me to do something: “Look up geopathic stress on the Internet before you buy the house.” So, I did that!

Most of the sites I found were commercial, but one site I discovered managed to avoid commercial offerings for one whole page! The next page on the site lists their products, but the above page is a good explanation of what this is.

This is a call out to the visitors of this site – ever had your house tested for these strange energies? I’d be more than a little skeptical about this stuff, but there’s no harm in finding out more!

Update – the site I linked to above changed their layout. No doubt they saw the extra traffic and decided to list their commercial interests. Here’s a page that does have a longer description of Geopathic stress and how to stop it.

How can I tell whether I am affected by Geopathic Stress?

There are a number of pointers which may suggest the presence of Geopathic Stress by its effect on both people and buildings.

The following clues may suggest that a person is affected by Geopathic Stress:-

1. They have a serious illness such as cancer, M.E., or multiple sclerosis.
2. They have any illness which does not clear up despite good treatment.
3. They have tried a number of different therapies without success.
4. They feel better when away from home. For instance, a condition may clear up or improve when away on holiday only to come back again when they get back home.

The following quote is laughable however:

Note for health professionals and therapists – as a general rule of thumb, if a patient is not getting better on appropriate treatment, it is wise to assume that they are geopathically stressed, whether you can detect it or not.

Basically, if someone is sick near you, if there’s mould in your house, if there’s a spring close by, if you don’t sleep too well, then your house and neighbourhood is probably suffering from geopathic stress. They even got oil wells and volcanoes in there for good measure. I won’t be moving to Iraq or Pompeii in a hurry.

Here’s what Wikipedia says about geopathic stress.
