  1. The ideal mattress should not contain any metal only natural fibres or natural Latex.    Neither should the  mattress be be treated with any chemicals or fire retardants.   How buying the wrong mattress can make you ill.
  2. The two graphs below show a normal geomagnetic field profile and a disturbed geopathic profile.                                                        
    Nature never  intended us to sleep on such a disturbed site as shown in figure G2 which has been artificially produced by the the  metal springs reacting to the earth’s geomagnetic field causing magnetic anomalies and a disturbed sleeping site. (not all springs will cause this phenomena depends to what extent they have been affected by magnetic influences)

    The first geomagnetogram (G1) typically represents the values of the Earths normal geomagnetic field taken by me in a farmer's field near Poynings village not far from where I live. As you can see the magnetic contours of this bed size area (6’x4’) are very gentle and slightly undulating showing an overall geomagnetic anomaly of 582 nT (nano Tesla). It is rare to find a magnetic anomaly above any natural terrain higher than 2000 nT. Within our evolutionary history our bodies own magnetic field has integrated with this magnetic field which is responsible for controlling amongst other things, circadian rhythms, mood changes and certain hormone production such as melatonin and serotonin.
    The second geomagnetogram (G2) was taken above a sprung mattress from a lady suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome and severe depression, and has a magnetic anomaly of 22,435.4 nT. The sprung mattresses I have measured so far over the past two years have had magnetic anomalies between 4,000 and 61,000 nT. The reason for these abnormally high magnetic abnormalities is a result of the bed springs intensifying the magnetic flux of these fields, made worse by the interaction of high magnetic fields around the bed and house from numerous electrical appliances, extension cables running under the bed and transformers placed near to the bed. Our forefathers sleeping on straw or feathered mattresses in houses devoid of any electrical fields or microwave energy would not have experienced such geomagnetic disturbances. Each static magnetic field bump or sink on geomagnetogram (G2) may speed up or slow down body fluids (blood and lymphatic) in exposed areas such as the brain, heart, lung, liver, legs etc. Sleep time exposure to the same sharp variations of magnetic fields for years may induce some chronic health effect. The World Health Organization in a health criteria report recognizes interactions between variations in static magnetic fields in cellular tissues to include an induction of electrical potentials and magneto hydrodynamic effects in the circulatory systems and by direct stimulation of nerve and muscle cells even under extremely weak thresholds.
    The Cliff of Tears
    It is important not to underestimate the value of the earth's natural geomagnetic field (DC Field) which interacts with our bodies in many positive ways  This DC field rarely shows an anomaly above or below 2% of its normal strength which differs according to the latitude in which you live. However there are instances in nature where abnormal magnetic anomalies exist usually due to a sudden change in mineralogy or geological structure over a short distance. One instance of this is in the USA, at a place called Gyngywamp, near Croton, Connecticut known  as 'The Cliff of Tears' where visitors to this site very frequently become depressed, gums start to bleed and nose bleeds occur. People generally feel ill for no particular reason. In women unexpected commencement of menstruation is often reported. Indeed, in the town nearby, doctors and nurses are familiar with this sudden onset of illness in visitors to this old Indian sacred site. The causation seems to be that within a few meters the geomagnetic DC field varies from 330 milligauss at an 80 degree dip to 700 milligauss at a 59 degree dip. This is an extremely high and unusual magnetic gradient to experience. To varying degrees the health consequences of staying above one of these geopathically stressed locations can be replicated  in our own homes by the choice of mattresses we use.  The bottom line is, if you suspect your sleeping site is being disturbed by an unusually high magnetic anomaly then buy a bed that has a wooden base and place there upon a mattress that has no springs and make sure it is not placed near a radiator or other heavy metal object.
    Unnatural Alterations in the Earth's Geomagnetic Field
    A second and equally important influence on the sequence of mitosis is the role in which the normal earth's geomagnetic field (DC field) influences the formation and production of a healthy pregnancy. It appears that the exposure of a dividing cell to an inhomogeneous DC magnetic field causes a physical force to be exerted on the chromosomes or on one of the other microscopic structures associated with mitosis, resulting in structural abnormalities in the chromosomes. Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. is of the opinion that this knowledge is probably the single most important discovery of the century by providing us with a key to the mechanisms by which all electromagnetic fields and abnormal earth DC fields can produce detrimental affects with in the process of mitosis leading to abnormal cell growth and miscarriage.

    The Polish Study I thought it worth including an interesting synopsis of a doctoral thesis written by Barbara Tombarkiewicz under the supervision of Prof. Tomasz M Janowski concerning zones of geomagnetic field disturbances (magnetic anomalies) in Poland and the health of 309 cows kept in cow stalls in a building  measuring 91 x 24 meters in area. Cows kept in three of these stalls suffered ill health problems over and above a ratio that might be normally expected. The problem was initially resolved by moving these unhealthy cows to other cow stalls in the complex where they recovered. However the healthy cows that were placed in these three cow stalls soon succumbed to ill health problems. It was decided to take measurements of the Earth's geomagnetic fields in these cow stalls to see if the three pathogenic sites were caused by anomalies in the local geomagnetic field strength.  The three cow stalls that were connect to ill health problems had magnetic anomalies exceeded 34.000nT (nano Tesla)
    Hair and Blood Analysis
    Animals that stayed in the geopathogenic stalls (equivalent to a geopathic mattress) showed lower counts of trace elements such as Aluminium, Zinc, Copper and low Iron counts.
    One of the many factors behind incorrect iron balance is Cadmium. It accumulates in the body and combines permanently with tissues, and inhibits activity of some enzymes. It is teratogenic, carcinogenic, and is amongst the most toxic of metals. The report concluded that the micro element disorders in the animals staying in the geopathic stalls was the primary cause of the many diseases and even death of the organism. Blood tests especially leukocyte count and the amount of toxic metal found in hair analysis were also indications that the animals were suffering from the detrimental affects of long term exposure to these geopathogenic sites. At our current stage of knowledge it is difficult to explain the mechanism these geomagnetic disturbances have on living organisms.

    Studies conducted using various methods, are evidence that the earth's magnetic field plays an important role in the activity of living organisms as it affects the course of Physico-chemical reactions in the organism. A disturbed geomagnetic field alters, among other things, the evolutionary shaped permeability of cell membranes and the magnetic orientation of micro elements. This can affect the whole plant or animal organism and thus the physiological status of the organism, the central nervous
    system and neuro-psychical phenomena. The influence of a disturbed geomagnetic field on the living organism is slow and cumulative in time and can cause dysfunction of the organism, but after it stops the dysfunction can regress. After several months the healthy cows were moved in to the geopathogenic stalls and were observed to undergo a reverse process as their hair turned gray, matted, and became poorly rooted in the skin.
    My Own Research
    Many of the readings I have taken from mattresses slept on by  people suffering from frequent miscarriage and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) showed similar readings to the anomalies in the polish cow stalls. Some far worse with the highest magnetic anomaly registering over 70,000 nT.
    The geomagnetic field is an important regulating factor for the whole organism of the human being. Since evolution, the human body has adapted to and depends on this geomagnetic field. Many biochemical reactions, the oxidation process, the efficiency of the immune system and the regulation of the hormone system, are dependent on the surrounding condition of the geomagnetic field. A so called disturbed zone, or geomagnetic anomaly, exists as part of the constant flux of the earth’s  field, producing in its natural state localized areas where homogeneous and inhomogeneous fields meet. Should the human body especially during sleep, be exposed to an inhomogeneous geomagnetic field over an extended time, then a great health risk is introduced every day to the body. This presents a measurable stress to the immune system especially during sleep when the body needs to relax. Varying anomalies of the geomagnetic field over the sleeping place can pose a health risk. The degree of how extreme these geomagnetic anomalies are, whether increasing or decreasing, coincide with the degree of risk to the health.
    It is important, therefore, to know what the actual situation is concerning the sleeping and working pace. To measure the geomagnetic field over the sleeping place is the best way to be informed about any health risk factors. The first symptoms are vegetative syndromes, drowsiness, waking up, feeling ‘off’ , chronic aches and pains, headaches and depression. Prolonged stress such as this often results in chronic and degenerative illness.
    Ferro-magnetism and Dia-magnetism
    Geomagnetic effects are created depending on whether a material repulses, attracts or is neutral to the earth’s magnetic lines of force. Ferro-magnetic materials increase magnetic induction by concentrating the lines of force. These are the highly magnetic materials: iron, magnetite (found in blood), nickel, and cobalt. Also some minerals are affected such as: manganosite, pyrite, basalt, platinum and aluminium. Dia-magnetic materials decrease magnetic induction. They include copper, gold, lead, water, quartz, salt and hydrogen. Today houses have wires, metal conduit, and heating piping all with local and specific magnetic permeability properties. Metallic appliances can also become magnetized when supplied with electric current. The geomagnetograms I produce can show a very disturbed sleeping site according to the density of a metal object placed near to or under the bed. This can be the result of electrical wires criss-crossing under the bed, the bed springs and/or a metal bed frame. Other structures I have found such as a metal girder from a room conversion below the bedroom and a bed placed above a large metal boiler in the kitchen below have also influenced a high magnetic anomaly. Also springs during manufacture can become highly magnetized if they come into close contact with other magnetic objects or electric fields.
    Biological Effects
    Most of the research in to the biological effects of sleeping above an abnormally disturbed geomagnetic field (could be your mattress) has been carried out in Germany by Dr. Ludger Mersmann. Unfortunately none of his research has been translated into English. He does however give the following threshold values from which these biological influences occur:
    Biological Threshold Influences for Magnetic Anomalies: produced by Dr. Ludger Mersmann who is a bio-physicist at the Technical and Medical Research Centre Wassenach Germany.
    1. Normal: Lower than 2000 nT
    2. Threshold: 2000 – 3000 nT
    3. Disturbed: 3000 – 5000 nT
    4. Strongly disturbed: 5000 – 10,000 nT
    5. Highly disturbed: 10,000 nT or greater.
    Other studies that have supported these findings are: Konig L. Studies with mice remaining in geopathogenic places are observed to have smaller litters, decreased weight and try to escape from the geopathic zones. Other German studies of animals kept in geopathogenic zones showed adverse effects on health and sudden death.
    The proportion of lymphocytes in the total white blood cell count dropped sharply as the animals stayed in geopathogenic stalls. Possible to prove hypothesis that cows staying in geopathogenic stalls area was a factor that caused ill health.
    According to a hypothesis of Krzywda et al. (16), metabolic disorders may occur in animals staying a long time in stalls exposed to the radiation from underground streams.

  4. Well done all of you for getting this far into my web site you should now know a little more of how some of those unseen geopathic energies can affect your health. Next follows some case history examples then we'll talk about those other types of unseen energies;  the man-made electromagnetic variety and how these can also affect a house or building and the well-being of those inside.
