Geopathic stress zones are places on the surface of the Earth known to cause health problem. Empirical knowledge of the existence of geopathic stress is probably as old as mankind. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of geopathic stress on human body. It further tries to scientifically evaluate dowsing phenomenon by measuring body voltage, skin resistance, using V-20 bio voltmeter, GSR-2 biofeedback system(R) respectively in and around the pre-detected geopathic stress zones on the Mumbai-Pune express way and some residential areas of Pune city (India). Healthy male volunteers were subjected to the stress in prospective study. The observations indicate a change in body voltage, skin resistance in geopathic stress zones as compared to non-stress zone.

Key words: Geopathic stress, skin resistance, body voltage.
