Dowsing and food intolerance
As have so many others, Nicky Greenham has found dowsing
to be the ideal tool for managing food allergy, food intolerance and multiple chemical sensitivities.
Always available, free and accurate. She gives us a master class.

I first found I could dowse when I tried to locate the lines of geopathic
stress in my home. The instructions said to cut a wire coathanger into
two ‘L’ shapes and think hard of what I wanted to find.
Feeling a little silly and extremely sceptical I stood in the middle
of the lounge holding out the rods and hoping nobody was watching.
Incredibly, as I wandered round the room the rods began to move. I
was surprised and a little shocked. This was my first foray into dowsing
and since then I have learnt how useful it can be in helping to identify
food and chemical intolerances - especially for those with multiple
To get started the only equipment needed is a rod or pendulum of some sort. A ring on a piece of cotton would suffice, but I find the results are more obvious using rods.
Dowsing for Water
If the rods cross, you are likely to be standing directly over a source of underground water. If the rods line up, they may be marking the direction of flow of an underground stream.
Try approaching the area from another direction to see if you get the same response. If you don’t get any reaction, check you are not holding the rods too tightly, and that they are still parallel to the floor – not tipping up or down. Move slowly and smoothly to avoid unintentionally moving the rods and make sure your mind is completely focussed on what you want to find.
If there is still no response, it may be that there is no water in
that area, so try looking somewhere else. The same process can be used
to dowse for geopathic stress.
Hold the rods loosely with your elbows tucked in. Clear your mind and
focus on the question you want to ask. Hold the rods over the sample
of food and say your question out loud eg ‘Can I tolerate this
