Vernon senior believes pendulum helps her stay healthy

Helen Schroth still believes in the power of her pendulum.

The Morning Star first wrote about Schroth, a Vernon senior, in 2010, where she talked about how a pendulum tells her which foods she should and shouldn’t eat to stay healthy. Her proof, she said, was being diagnosed with colitis 14 years earlier and had “so much pain and trouble.” She also had allergies and wasn’t well.

A guest at a bed and breakfast she operated with her husband, Fred, told her about the pendulum to test food and other products that she might be allergic to, and Schroth was intrigued.

Fast forward to April 2017.

Schroth fell and broke her pelvis below her right knee, requiring a stay at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

The morning she was being released, Schroth was given a pill and two liquids. She forgot to swing her pendulum over the medication to test it.

“I had it with me but I was so excited to be going home,” said Schroth.

After taking the medication, Schroth began gurgling and having trouble breathing, She lost her voice and began having nightmares. Instead of going home, Schroth was kept at VJH.

“I was so sick,” she said.

Had she swung her pendulum over the medication, Schroth said, the pendulum would have indicated it wasn’t good for her. And she could have gone home earlier.

Schroth said in 2010 the pendulum works the same way water witching does, and it’s simple to use. You ask the pendulum for your personal positive, negative and neutral movements which are different for each person. You hold the pendulum over whatever you want to test.

She uses a pendulum Fred made for her, but said any small, heavy, pointed object on a string or a chain should work.

Today, Schroth is recovered and doing fine.

“There are so many people with allergies and they are going through hell with them, and this is something that could help people and can’t hurt them so I wanted to share it,” said Schroth in 2010. “I tell people about it and some try it and find it helpful.

“I don’t think I’d be alive today without the pendulum.”
