The word Geobiology comes from the two words Geo -- meaning (Earth) and Bio – meaning (Life). Geobiology is the study of the earth structure, and the influence it has on all life forms existing on the planet. Geobiology basically understands the impact of different forms of geo-energies on various aspects of life (physical, mental, emotional, intellectual and spiritual) above it. In simple words it is a clear relationship between terrestrial space (land or earth) and inner space (living being). Geobiology is a study of gases, vibrations, energies or radiations emitting from land and their impact on living organisms or life above it. The job of the agrobiologists is to detect harmful elements of land and its related energies, to rebalance the living space and to raise the level of positive vibrations, in order to allow the body to recharge itself. It has been scientifically demonstrated that a long stay in a disturbed location, has a definite effect on the electromagnetic functioning of our cells, devitalizes our organism and weakens our immunity system. 

In ancient times, architecture was not only a creation of form to define a particular space, but was inherently a sacred form to take care of the subtle effects of the environment, both natural and built up on the human body. So our ancestors created forms that were in harmony with the creation that surround us, forms that live not in time but that have out grown time and live in eternity.

Today Geobiology dedicates itself to an investigation of the principles on which certain laws are based. The earth consists of several layers, the core, the mantle and the crust and is surrounded by the atmosphere. It is very important to study which material the earth is consisted of and the energies that are present in the same. Geologists have looked at the earth, divided by major rock types, by links to engineering, chemistry, physics and biology, by a focus on specific environment or resources, or by a focus on the static and dynamic properties of earth materials i.e. mineralogy, geomorphology and structural geology.

The influences generated by the earth are generally brought about by the earth’s magnetic field and local geological characteristics. Earth has positive and negative poles and is surrounded by its own magnetic field (geomagnetic field) at the rate 7.8 beats / second. The intensity of this field varies according to the location and the hour of the day.

The human being is like an antenna between the earth and the sky. The human body is submitted to a continuous exchange of energy between these two poles and the earth sky flow nourishes it energetically, for its survival. In nature this flow of energy is called cosmos telluric channel while this flow of energies in humans is referred to as global balance. Being a very hypersensitive and highly sophisticated antenna, the human body receives and transmits endless information all the time, though most of the time not being aware about it. This unconscious information is received through resonance and stocked in our cells, and influences the functioning of our bodies. When two bodies have similar wave lengths and frequencies, they have an instant communication through resonance no matter what the distance between the two of them is.

Earth is a living being with elements, similar to our body. It has 70% of water; it has meridians, veins, articulations and subtle bodies. That is why our body communicates so well with the Earth through resonance. The earth is threaded with energy lines or meridians of electromagnetic energy that have a powerful influence on living beings. Scientists have proven this invisible energy passes through all matter, affecting every living system on the planet, in either a negative or positive way. Man is an electromagnetic creature with every cell in the living system an electrical battery. The electrical system is reflected even more subtly as the human aura that is a photographable and measurable electrical field.

The purpose of Geobiology is to provide the data to enable us create a habitat as near to natural living conditions as possible, taking into account the need for comfort provided by old and new technologies favorable to the environment. As per Geobiology there are two kinds of underground water veins, primary water and aquifer water flowing in earth. The first one is water that comes up from the deepest parts of the earth for the first time, It is known as healing water and is the water that flows out of earth in well known hot thermal stations as for example in Yellowstone.

The second kind of underground water veins is aquifer water. The natural radioactivity above these veins is higher than usual, and the magnetic field is very low. Its influence affects a height of 100 meters. The friction of the underground water on the rocks creates a very strong vibration on the surface. This vibration becomes more noxious if the water is polluted. Its presence can be noticed above surface on the vegetation; trees grow diagonally trying to avoid the vibration, wholes in planted hedges. Lightning often touch earth where two underground water veins cross each other.

Geopathic emissions also relate to physical properties of soil. The physical level deals with all the known effects related to the quality of the ground (ie geological fault, water streams, Radon...etc.). Soil science looks at the outer skin of terrestrial earth.

Soil plays an essential role in supporting life on earth and is a scarce resource of great economic value. It responds quickly to environmental changes and indeed bears the human impact on the land surface. Soil is one of the three major natural resources, alongside air and water. It is one of the marvelous products of nature and without which there would be no life.

Soil is a natural body consisting of layers (Soil horizons) of mineral constituents of variable thickness which differ from the parent material in their morphological, physical, chemical and mineralogical characteristics. It is composed and altered by chemical and environmental processes that include weathering and erosion and is a mixture of organic constituents that are solid gaseous and gaseous states.

Soil formation greatly depends on the climatic conditions, and soils from different climate zones, show distinctive characteristics. Soil is populated by an amazing variety of living creatures, ranging from tiny microbes such as bacteria and fungi (microbeasts), to smaller insects such as centipedes and other animals such as worms (minibeasts) and larger animals such as moles and rabbits. Bacteria, an essential group of soil micro-organisms, are responsible for much of the decomposition of organic material in soils. They are usually present in top soils in very large numbers and play an important role in converting more inert forms of nitrogen to ones that can more readily be taken up by plants.
Soil is a mixture of mineral and organic materials plus air and water. The contents of soil vary from location to location, and are constantly changing. There are many different kinds and types of soils. Each kind has certain characteristics and has specific colors and compositions. Different kinds of soils support different types of plant growths, and also determine how well that plant life grow. Soil is formed slowly, but can be destroyed very easily.

The first impression when viewing a particular soil is its color, and can be classified by the composition of clay, silt, and sand within it. The study of Geobiology says that a particular place can either make us prone to disease or depression or can even lift us to more subtle levels of vibrations, strengthening our body and spirit, depending on its characteristics. Soil is a living system and a variety of soil organisms live in it. These include bacteria, fungi, micro arthropods, nematodes, earthworms and insects. These organisms live on soil organic matter or other soil organisms and perform a number of vital processes in the soil. Other organisms are involved in transformation of inorganic molecules. Very few soil organisms are pests.
Soil chemistry is concerned with the availability of elements for plant uptake as well as the presence in soil of elements and chemical compounds that might be present at levels that are detrimental to plants and soil organisms. Some elements in the soil are nutrients and are essential for plant growth. Other elements are not essential and may be toxic to plants. The availability of elements for plant uptake is affected by soil pH and reactions of the elements with soil particles and organic matter.

Physical properties like Structure and Texture of the soil, and processes such as Erosion of the soil, can affect the soil fertility. Structure is the amount of aggregation and pores in soil and texture is the proportion of clay and sand particles in soil. Both of these affect soil fertility by affecting water movement through the soil, root penetration and water logging. Erosion is an important physical process that decreases soil fertility. When soil structure and texture are unfavorable for water movement through soil water erosion and water logging may be increased. Soil salinity is a chemical property but can affect soil physical fertility by decreasing the movement of water through the soil.

Soil pollution is defined as the build-up in soils of persistent toxic compounds, chemicals, salts, radioactive materials, or disease causing agents, which have adverse effects on plant growth and animal health.

The effects of soil pollution are:

  • insufficient oxygen in the soil,
  • acidic soils may burn the plant,
  • bugs may go and start an infestation in the soil,
  • plant growth is effected,
  • not enough drainage,
  • new soil diseases develop every year,
  • Not enough moisture in the soil.

Soil pollution results from the build up of :

  • contaminants,
  • toxic compounds,
  • radioactive materials,
  • salts,
  • chemicals and
  • cancer-causing agents.

The most common soil pollutants are

  • hydrocarbons,
  • heavy metals (cadmium, lead, chromium, copper, zinc, mercury and arsenic),
  • herbicides,
  • pesticides,
  • oils and
  • tars, etc.

Ideally a fertile land without Geobiologiocal faults should be choosen for a construction site. Fertile land has fertile soil in it. Fertile soil has the following properties:

  • It is rich in nutrients necessary for basic plant nutrition, including nitrogen,
  • It contains sufficient minerals (trace elements) for plant nutrition, including boron, chlorine, cobalt, copper, iron, manganese, magnesium, molybdenum, sulfur, and zinc.
  • It contains soil organic matter that improves soil structure and soil moisture retention.
  • Soil pH is in the range 6.0 to 6.8 for most plants but some prefer acid or alkaline conditions.
  • Good soil structure, creating well drained soil, but some soils are wetter (as for producing rice) or drier (as for producing plants susceptible to fungi or rot, such as agave).
  • A range of microorganisms that support plant growth.
  • It often contains large amounts of topsoil.

In lands used for agriculture and other human activities, fertile soil typically arises from the use of soil conservation practices. Basically, soil fertility refers to the ability of a soil to supply plant nutrients


SOIL may be defined as a thin layer of earth's crust which serves as a natural medium for growth of plants. It is the unconsolidated mineral matter that has been subjected to, and influenced by, genetic and environmental factors such as parent material, climate, organisms and topography all acting over a period of time. Soil differs from the parent material in the morphological, physical, chemical and biological properties. Some soils are red, some are black; some are deep and some are shallow; some are coarse textured and some are fine-textured. They serve as a reservoir of nutrients and water for crops, provide mechanical anchorage and favorable tilt. The components of soil are mineral matter, organic matter, water and air, the proportions of which vary and together form a system for plant growth. Soil is defined as the top layer of the earth’s crust. It is formed by mineral particles, organic matter, water, air and living organisms. It is in fact an extremely complex, variable and living medium. The interface between the earth, the air and the water, soil is a non-renewable resource which performs many vital functions: food and other biomass production, storage, filtration and transformation of many substances including water, carbon, and nitrogen. Soil has a role as a habitat and gene pool, serves as a platform for human activities, landscape and heritage and acts as a provider of raw materials. These functions are worthy of protection because of their socio-economic as well as environmental importance.

A soil test provides information about pH, lime requirements and variable phosphorous, Potassium, Calcium, magnesium etc. There are different types of tests as per the project’s requirement. Soil is alive and constantly changing. After studying the soil testing reports, balancing materials can be applied to neutralize the soil as per the requirements.  We can use soil testing to find out the different geopathically stressed sections or zones and trying to know the exact composition of the soil obtained from that sections. Study of such zones may help us to rectify the soil and thus it may be beneficial to the society.

We know that under the Earth, we may find soil to be acidic in some areas, whereas dry or even watery in some areas. This does have impact on the chemical changes that may take place on adding certain minerals to the soil, which can be evaluated by the soil testing and hence can guide us to use the appropriate minerals in the soil of the faulty zones in order to rectify the faults.

Various reports show the electro conductivity in some samples too high. TDS composition is also high in geopathically stressed lands. The HCO3, CL, NO3, S04 shows remarkable difference in their readings. Soil electrical conductivity, which is known as EC, is the ability of soil to conduct electrical current. EC is expressed in MilliSiemens per meter (mS/m). Traditionally, soil scientists used EC to measure soil salinity. The conduction of electricity in soil takes place through the moisture-filled pores that occur between individual soils particles. EC readings correlate strongly to soil grain size or texture. Sand has low conductivity, silts have a medium conductivity and clays have a high conductivity. The art of using electrical conductivity knows what physical or chemical soil property causes changes in soil EC.

If the quantum of salts and minerals in underground water is more than the prescribed limits, that water is polluted. For instance, additional quantity of fluoride can pollute groundwater. The presence of salts and minerals should be within the prescribed limits. Groundwater can become polluted, or contaminated. It can become polluted from leaky underground tanks that store gasoline, leaky landfills, or when people apply too much fertilizer or pesticides on their fields or lawns.

Pesticides and fertilizers used in agriculture and weed killers from road verges are washed off when it rains. They may go into ground-water used for public water supplies, polluting them. They may go into lakes and rivers and harm living organisms there. Natural contaminants can come from many conditions in the watershed or in the ground. Water moving through rocks and soils may pick up magnesium, calcium, and chlorides.

Some ground water contains dissolved elements such as arsenic, boron, selenium, or radon—a gas formed by the natural breakdown of radioactive uranium in soil. Whether these natural contaminants are health problems depends on the amount of substance present.

Some naturally occurring sources of pollution include:

Microorganisms. Bacteria, viruses, parasites, and other microorganisms are sometimes found in water. Shallow wells—those with water close to ground level—are at most risk. Runoff, or water flowing over the land surface, may pick up these pollutants from wildlife and soils. This is often the case after flooding.

Salinity is a highly important problem in arid and semi-arid regions. Consequently, the analysis of soil salinity plays a crucial role in environmental sciences. Electrical conductivity (EC) is a measurement of the dissolved material in an aqueous solution, which relates to the ability of the material to conduct electrical current through it. EC is measured in units called Siemens per unit area (e.g. mS/cm, or MilliSiemens per centimeter), and the higher the dissolved material in a water or soil sample, the higher the EC will be in that material. Temperate streams and lakes, especially those with a significant groundwater contribution, generally have higher electrical conductivities. EC measurements can vary greatly and are affected by several environmental factors including, climate, local biota (plants and animals), bedrock and surgical geology, as well as human impacts on the land. High conductivity may indicates high concentrations of ions/nutrients, therefore high soil salt content.


Geopathic’ literally means ‘earth-associated illness. The earth’s magnetic field is constantly fluctuating and this causes natural radiation to rise through the ground. Natural causes of geopathic stress are nowadays compounded by the electromagnetic fields generated by mobile phones, microwaves, cars and so on, which produce stress. Geopathic Stress is caused by the detrimental effects of negative earth energies which pass through walls, windows, and closed doors. These energies are not stable and can change with the seasons or even with the time of the day and can be distorted by building works carried out even at some distance away.

Geopathic stress is a form of trauma caused by disturbed or anomalous energies within the earth’s mantle or within the soil. The earth is surrounded by an energy grid which contains and transmits vital forces. This grid is essential for life and is a part of the background radiation which supports life. Within the earth there is naturally occurring beneficial radiation but when the earth is disturbed, e.g. by digging, including building and construction work or due to any natural disasters such as earth quakes, landslide, this balance can be altered and the harmful energies can be released underneath the ground surface. Geopathic stress therefore represents a distortion of the natural frequency which can sometimes be observed visibly in nature- Eggplants failing to thrive, trees taking on peculiar angles and trunk developments. In contrast some special plants seem to positively flourish in areas where geopathic stress has been detected.

Medical professionals seem to all agree that CHRONIC STRESS is one of the biggest killers in the world. Chronic stress means the body is out of balance and the immune system is weak which allows the body to become a breeding ground for any sickness, anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal disorders, etc. Today the World Health Organization considers that 30% of all buildings are ‘sick’ buildings.


In 1929, Baron Gustav Fresher von Pohl discovered that many cases of human illness and disease in animals, plants and trees were related to underground fissures and streams of water emitted energy vertically to the surface. He suspected that the velocity of the water was the most important factor in the strength of this disease-inducing energy. Further, he discovered that unusually high levels of natural electric currents occurred where underground water fissures crossed at different levels.

In 1939, Pierre Cody of Le Havre used an electrometer to measure ionization under the beds of cancer victims and discovered very high readings vertically above the surface of the ground. Another researcher in more recent times, Kate Basher, an Austrian teacher, has worked extensively with geopathically disturbed zones, and has listed 11,000 cases of illness which she believes were initiated in these areas. She helped the sufferers to move their beds or working positions to a more suitable area, with extremely beneficial results. Her research has centered partly on the unpleasant influences of what she called 'malign earth energies' were having on children at school, not only with respect to their health, but also to their ability to learn. She found that 95% of children who were unsuccessful in school, who were slow learners, or lethargic, were difficult to handle, or hyperactive, had been found in the areas of geopathic stress. Kate believes that children in a class ought to change the position of their desks, perhaps every three to four weeks; one row of children alternating with the adjacent row, so that no child should suffer what may be a stressful environment for any long period.

A recent survey by Christopher McNamee of the People's Research Centre, Alston, has revealed that gypsies and travelling people have a surprisingly low level of illness. When asked about incidences of cancer in their relatives, he found that it is less than 1%, against 25-33% mortality in the rest of the population. Heart disease and other serious illnesses so prevalent in our society are also very low in them. Their general lifestyle can hardly be attributed to their well-being, as they smoke, drink alcohol and ignore health foods and special diets. He also believes that illness is primarily a disease of location, and that the travelling people's nomadic lifestyle means that they are unlikely to stay long in a highly stressed area, and if they do happen to camp in one, they are intuitive enough to leave the area after a very short time.


Researchers and scientists have noted that Geopathic Stress may not necessarily cause illness but seems to lower a person's immune system, so if they are sleeping in an area that is geopathically stressed, their body is not getting a proper chance to repair. In recent years the rapid proliferation of artificial sources of radio electric frequencies has become a cause for concern. It has surpassed many times the production of natural sources.
It is interesting that where Geopathic stress has been found, the occupants of that property have often noted that since moving there, their health has deteriorated, their sleep has not been restful and previously happy families are encountering more arguments or a sense of unhappiness. It has also been found that houses where geopathic stress is found are often harder to sell and return to the market regularly as people have not been comfortable there. Positive relationships with neighbours may have also suffered. Geopathic stress in the work place also seems to generate its own tensions with a work force who can be argumentative and un-co-operative, or who may not stay in the job long or there is a higher incidence of sick leave.

  1. Certain mineral deposits
  2. Under ground Cavities
  3. Underground debris of dead
  4. Movements of the continental tectonic plates
  5. Changes at the core level of earth
  6. Land burn due to Massive fire or other natural calamities
  7. Establishment of heavy machinery for years
  8. Building constructed on clutter
  9. Buried utility pipes, soak pit or septic tank
  10. Manmade disturbance
  11. Mines-rail cuttings
  12. Criss-cross water veins
  13. Black streams/Black spots etc

There are various symptoms associated with Geopathic Stress. Some of them are given below:

  • Weak Immune System
  • Sleeping disorders and nightmares
  • Disorders like sweating, freezing
  • Migraines, tensions, headaches
  • Difficult to concentrate
  • Persistence of any symptoms despite treatments
  • Skin problems-itching and eczema
  • Cancer
  • Feeling tired in the morning
  • Long term stress in relationship/work
  • You feel healthier when you are away from home
  • Previous occupants suffered serious illness
  • Lack of growth in plants
  • Schizophrenia
  • Short term memory loss

It is said that when we are spending our 1/3 of life on bed that is 8 hours, the positioning is very important at night. When we are asleep; our subconscious mind is highly active. We need to get repaired by ourselves while we are asleep. Geopathic stress continuously affects our body for 6 to 8 hours during sleep. A vulnerable individual exposed to the negative influence of Geopathic radiations for a prolonged period of time on a static position. Genetically inherited weaknesses manifest themselves in the form of diseases. This is determined by the degree of radiation’s intensity and the length of exposure, to the Geopathic stress. Geopathic stress or poor quality land is fairly a big factor contributing to sick building syndrome.

Small babies, unable to move away, may react to a zone of disturbance by showing signs of slow development, prolonged crying, convulsive crying or screaming. Young children, able to move, will instinctively flee from zones of disturbance. They may be found sleeping on the floor, another bed or on a chair, or, if they cannot escape from a crib, they may be found crouched or curled up in one of the corners. Children, able to talk, may tell of a presence in their bed, or show signs of fear that someone or something is in their room. Children are very sensitive where there is a spot or section of geopathy, they avoid going there or sleep there, and they show their strong opposition to enter the section or spot.
