This article will be covering the wonderful paranormal talent of the ‘X Ray vision girl’ – Natasha Demkina.
Does this Russian girl really have the power to see inside people and spot their illnesses?
Welcome to the power of the Natasha Demkina X Ray eyes…
Natalya Nikolayevna Demkina was born in Saransk, western Russia, in 1987. When she was ten years old see went through an operation on her appendix that she claims gave her paranormal powers – the ability to look into a person’s body and locate various illnesses.
She says that she can actually spot colors inside people that make up pictures – she can then analyze these pictures to find out what is wrong with the individual.
When she first came out with these claims, the local doctors thought she was going slightly mad – in their book, this was impossible!
They decided to test Natasha by taking her to a local children’s hospital and introducing her to a few of the young patients.
She ended up correctly diagnosing several children correctly – one of which was seriously ill.
She also managed to correct a mis-diagnosis made by a doctor at the hospital on a female patient’s case.
This female had actually been told that she was suffering from a cancerous growth, but Natasha discovered that there was no cancer…only a harmless cyst.
This claim led to a second diagnosis…proving Natasha was correct.
Hitting The Headlines
In 2003, the wonderful story of the X Ray vision girl finally hit the big time – The Sun newspaper, in the UK, picked up on the Russian girl’s exploits.
Reporter Briony Warden brought Natasha over to the UK for the purposes of testing her for a future article in the newspaper.
Warden had been involved in a terrible road accident the year before he met Natasha – he decided that he would use his own body as a test subject to catch out the Russian girl.
Natasha had no problem in locating all of his past injuries, and where they had been on his body.
A British morning breakfast show, This Morning, decided to get Natasha on as a guest after the newspaper article was released. She then successfully diagnosed one of the show’s medical presenters – he ended up discovering that he had possible tumor in his intestines.
The Discovery Channel then wanted a piece of the action – but many believe that their program, set up by Ray Hyman and Richard Wiseman, was deliberately put together to discredit Natasha’s claims.
On the show, she was put through a test of 7 people – she had to correctly diagnose 5 of them to pass.
She ended up diagnosing 4 of them correctly.
Natasha complained after the experience claiming that the show was rude to her and set up to make her look like some kind of failure. The show responded by releasing information regarding one of the test subjects she had examined.
Apparently he had a metal plate in his head – why did Natasha not pick up on this?
The Japanese Test
Natasha eventually agreed to go through another test with Professor Yoshio Machi of the Department of Electronics at Tokyo Denki University. This time she made sure she had a few rules put in place.
She passed this test with no problems at all – she even spotted a prosthetic knee and a new pregnancy in a woman.
