The physical effects of underground water

(From: The 500-Year Old Mystery of Dowsing by Christopher Bird)

In 1975 Herbert Douglas visited the home of a twelve-year old girl with a double curvature of the spine. Arriving at his destination, he took out a plastic dowsing rod and went over every room in a two-story house, being particularly careful to check the area around and under the bed where the girl had been sleeping since early childhood.

Douglas found that an unusually high number of water veins flow beneath the house. There were no less than thirty-five intersections of veins under the afflicted child's bed. He immediately suggested to the distraught parents that the bed be moved to a part of the house where no veins would run under it.

For the next ten days the child told her parents that the chronic pain in her spine was increasing. Then the pain suddenly began to diminish, to the befuddlement of the girl's doctor who noticed, during a visit to fit her for a full body brace, that the curvature had noticeably decreased. Several months later Douglas received a letter from the child's mother stating that her daughter no longer was suffering any pain at all and that the curvature had diminished sufficiently to obviate any necessity for the brace.

The notion that the onset of disease might be linked to telluric emanations came to Douglas as it was a persistent theme in observations by English authors. Before World War II, W. M. Trinder made the following statement in his book, Dowsing: "There seems to be very little doubt that rays given off by subterranean water are, if continuous contact is maintained with them, definitely harmful to both human beings and plants. I have known instances of people suffering from nerves and also cases of rheumatism. In all these cases the sufferers were spending a large part of every twenty-four hours right over a subterranean stream and this was slowly having the most deleterious effect on their health."

Marguerite Maury echoed Trinder when in her own book, How to Dowse, she said: "Whatever may be the cause of telluric emissions - sheets of water, subterranean streams or dry faults - the effects produced on the health of animals and human beings is nearly always harmful. If there are several streams superimposed, the emission at the surface will be particularly bad."

According to Douglas the French dowsing expert, Abbe Mermet, also insisted that water veins could produce ill effects on human health. He wrote that radiations associated with these veins were "…transmitted from floor to floor in any house situated above them. One may be exposed to them in a workshop, a factory, an office, as well as in the flat on the tenth floor of a building. It is in a bedroom that their presence is the most harmful, for in such a case the affected individual is not only subjected to the bad effects of such radiations but is also deprived of sound and regenerating sleep. Impaired health results in consequence, and the affected person suffers from various ailments which neither he nor the doctor can account for."

Wondering whether there was any substance to the idea, Douglas began checking the beds of people who complained of arthritis to find that his rod always detected veins of water beneath them and, more significantly, that two or more veins crossed directly under the part of the body that hurt.

In a two-part article in the Bennington Banner (Vermont), Douglas reported that every one of the patients who had begun sleeping in a new location experienced a substantial reduction or complete disappearance of arthritic pain within periods of time ranging from five days to three months. Forwarding these findings to U.S. health authorities in Washington, D.C., he elicited a reply characterizing his results as "…intriguing and seeming to call for additional investigation." In his newspaper account Douglas concluded that there was no scientifically established relationship between arthritis and underground influences and no logical explanation of why arthritic patients should improve when their beds were moved. However, he added, "…it would appear that the research of medical men overseas, coupled with my own experience and that of other dowsers on the matter of underground irritation, is persuasive evidence that some diseases may be related to these underground forces."

The literature Douglas perused hinted that sleeping over water veins could also cause cancer. When one of his friends, a woman in her thirties, fell ill with breast cancer, Douglas dowsed around her bed to find that his rod produced so many reactions he could not count the veins. In 1978 Douglas reported: "I have now checked 20 cancer cases of different kinds, and in nearly all of them got an almost uncountable number of dowsing signals coming from water veins or, less frequently, clefts or breaks in underground rocky ledges. I thought that the underground veins could be best illustrated if I laid out a series of wooden laths on the bed to show the direction of their flow. When I did this, I asked the person who slept in the bed to lie down in the position they normally assume when falling asleep. Repeatedly, the crossing of the laths indicates precisely where the person is afflicted. "Over a period of ten years I've checked 60 cases of arthritis, 20 cases of cancer and nine cases of cataracts. In every single one of them, I found water lines intersecting under the affected part of the body. In every cancer case but one, I found a network of water veins creating anywhere from thirty to fifty crossings."

In 1978, Douglas had a German article translated into English and discovered that his own findings had been paralleled by those of Dr. Joseph Kopp of Ebikon, Switzerland, a consulting geologist who for years had dowsed successfully for water in his country. The idea that radiation from subterranean water veins might be linked to disease came to Kopp when he detected a water vein flowing directly under a new barn in the Swiss Rhine Valley community of Grabs in Sankt Gallen Canton. When he asked whether there had been cases of animal disease in the barn, a Grabs village official simply swung its door back to reveal it empty. So many animals had become ill when housed in it, he said, that it had been abandoned.

Kopp went on to conduct a personal dowsing survey of 130 barns in which cows confined for considerable periods of time had a high incidence of maladies, ranging from severe rheumatism in the joints and uterine deterioration, to marked weight loss and repeated miscarriages. Their calves either developed very poorly or died before maturity. He found that one or more strongly flowing veins of water ran under every one of the buildings he surveyed.

Learning of Kopp's findings, one pig farmer informed Kopp that sows confined in particular pens would repeatedly eat their litters, and that all the swine in a pen located directly over a water current suffered from bloody flux, while animals in adjacent pens free of such an underground influence were healthy.

A good article on  geopathic stress, especially as it relates to underground water. Get a dowser to check this in your house/flat—or give me a call (see dowsing info here), and use the Stress Reducers to reduce the problem.

My experience agrees with these findings, and  changing the position of the bed and/or using the Stress Reducers makes a big difference. In Germany they talk about ‘cancer beds’ in certain houses in which many who have slept in those beds/rooms over the years ended up with cancer and  other degenerative issues.
