Geomagnetic disturbances


Considerable experience has been documented concerning "geomagnetic" conditions in dwellings and correlated effects on their inhabitants.  

Geomagnetic effects are created depending on whether a material repulses, attracts or is neutral to the planetary magnetic lines of forces.

paramagnetism and diamagnetism

There are 3 possibilities affecting the ratio of magnetic flux (or, number of lines of magnetic force/unit area):

sharp variations in living zones

Dowsers sense sharp variations of surface magnetic field strengths as they pass over diamagnetic under­ground water veins or over ore bodies rich in paramagnetic minerals. Such experience has led to exploratory geophysics and mineral prospecting with sensitive geomagnetometers (see webpage for list of electromagnetic field detectors) that objectify the magnetic field gradients. Telltale variations are noticeable even at heights, as from aircraft probes, because magnetic fields are very penetrative. Magnetic field contour maps pf regions of the world can be full of magnetic "hills" that do not reflect a flat geography.

Today houses have wires and pipes, all with local and specific magnetic permeability properties. Metallic appliances become magnetic when supplied with electrical power. Motors tend to be dense in metal. The 3D magnetic images can show a very disturbed sleeping site located above a basement bench shop (with the heavy machines and a pipe magnetized by a grounding wire).

Sleeping above a kitchen counter with its appliances (toaster, juicer, etc.) exposes the body to deviations from diamagnetic and paramagnetic items as large as their sources. Beds can become magnetized. In such instances, the high ridge is an acquired "North" magnetic pole.

Each static magnetic field "bump" or "sink" may speed up or slow down body fluids (blood and lymphatic) in exposed areas (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. 

biological effects of variations of static magnetic fields

The World Health Organization, in a health criteria report, recognizes interactions between variations in static magnetic fields in man to include a) induction of electrical potentials and magneto- hydrodynamic effects in the circulatory systems and, b) direct stimulation of nerve and muscle cells even under extremely weak thresholds.

remedial technology - the Dar-Zon

Is there a simple remedy for localized magnetic disturbances? A Slovak electrical engineer, while computer-modeling magnetic fields, stumbled upon the idea of a flat dipole antenna to integrate localized gradients to annul each other, resulting in a patented clover-leaf printed circuit, known as the Dar-Zon.

We have  tested the Dar-Zon in geomagnetic disturbance sites. In a test case of a bed in a high-rise building, a static magnetic distortion was objectified with Geomagnetometer. It showed the rectangular distortion from an apartment below: from a sewing machine or from a live TV set. The placement of just 1 Dar-Zon plate below the mattress in the centre of the bed reduces a geomagnetic disturbance of 16% to an acceptable 9%.

rating guideline

Scientists have developed a rating to describe hazards associated with long-term exposure to geomagnetic disturbances. The percentages refer to the difference between minima and maxima within a site that is occupied for long periods - such as bed and favourite seating.

   level of risk                  percentage of variation /m²

   Normal                      less than 4%

    Threshold                  5%

    Disturbed                  6% to 9%

    Strongly Disturbed     10% to 14%

    Highly Disturbed        15% or more.


Midway between the Equator and the North Pole, the geomagnetic field is about 50,000 nanoTesla (nT), but local geology - with its underground paramagnetic and diamagnetic masses makes a big difference. For example In Ottawa and Toronto, it ranges about 85,000 - 115,000 nT instead of the expected 50,000 nT.
