Natasha Demkina, from Saransk, Russia, has a special gift, a gift that her parents have known about since she was a child but up until the mid-2000’s, kept secret from the world. Her eerie ability to see inside of human bodies has been demonstrated before witnesses time and time again. Experts say nobody since Edgar Cayce has demonstrated such a profound ability to confound scientists with her “X-Ray eyes” – her innate ability to see organs, tissues, bacteria, viruses, and make accurate medical diagnosis.
Natasha’s abilities first manifested themselves in 1997 when she was 10 years old. She explained to the Discovery Channel, who produced a television documentary about her unique abilities in 2004, how she discovered that she could peer inside a human’s body.
“I was at home with my mother and suddenly I had a vision. I could see inside my mother’s body and I started telling her about the organs I could see. Now, I have to switch from my regular vision to what I call medical vision. For a fraction of a second, I see a colorful picture inside the person and then I start to analyze it.”
After word of her ability leaked (initially her parents wished to avoid publicity and attempted to keep her gift a secret), eager residents in nearby apartments swarmed her home requesting medical evaluations and “readings” . Her fame quickly spread and her story was picked up by the widely-read Russian newspaper, Pravda. Shortly thereafter, Russian doctors began studying her in a laboratory environment and found her ability to be uncanny. She successfully diagnosed an undiscovered ailment in one of the research doctors – gall stones, kidney stones, and enlarged liver and an enlarged pancreas – all of which proved to be accurate diagnosis’s She also corrected a misdiagnosis made by a doctor at the hospital for a female patient who was told she had cancer. When Natasha examined the woman she saw only a very “small cyst”. A follow-up examination proved Natasha’s diagnosis was correct.
During the filming of the television documentary, the Discovery Channel and the British newspaper The Sun brought a woman, a newspaper reporter, who had been a victim of a car crash that resulted in extensive bone damage and subsequent medical treatment. Natasha successfully identified all the fracture points in the broken bones and noted that metal pins had been left behind in the woman’s body. The reporter described Natasha’s reading:
“She described my pelvis as asymmetrical and pointed to the right side with several fractures. She pointed at my jaw and said she saw “some foreign body” there (the reporter said that she had a titanic plate there to support bones). Then she said she saw the traces of several metal pins and screws that were indented in the bone. Without seeing the scars she could not know that my leg was fastened with several pins and screws. She even said that the scars left by pins and screws were covered with a new tissue, which was absolutely true, for my last X-ray photography had showed it.”
The Discovery Channel paid to fly Natasha to the United States for more testing and demonstrations. While in New York City, CSI researchers from the now defunct Commission for Scientific Medicine and Mental Health (CSMMH ) subjected Natasha to a series of tests using seven volunteer subjects, six with specific anatomical anomalies and one control subject who was in perfect health. The tests were designed to prevent “cold readings”, whereby a psychic uses subtle clues from a person’s emotional reaction to confirm or deny their predictions.
During the four-hour test, Natasha correctly matched conditions to four of the seven, despite testing conditions that Natasha later described as “unfair and misleading” and designed specifically to discredit her. CSMMH promptly declared the tests a failure and explained that they would have validated Natasha’s special ability if she had been able to correctly diagnose five of the seven subjects. A few weeks later, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Brian Josephson published a paper criticizing the CSMMH tests pointing out that given the test procedures utilized, the probability of correctly identifying even four of the seven subject’s conditions by chance was a mere 2%, or 1 in 50. The CSMMH’s additional criteria, requiring five matches, would have made the odds astronomical.
Natasha says that she can see detail in the human body down to the cellular level. She can switch her second sight on and off at will but doing so repeatedly results in terrible headaches. In 2004 Natasha finished school and entered the Medical Department of the Moscow State Medical Stomatological University. She currently works at the Moscow Center for Special Human Diagnostics.
