A Girl with an X-ray vision
Pravda (from PV-Gazeta) ^ | January 14, 2004 | Translated by: Anna Ossipova

Posted on 01/15/2004 10:48:03 AM PST by aculeus

Moscow's medical workers discovered a magnificent gift of a sixteen-year-old girl Natalya Demkina from Saransk. The girl possesses "dual vision". She is capable of discerning a person's internal organs without using X-ray or ultrasound.

Natasha has already disproved several medical diagnoses and has not made any mistakes. A series of medical experiments conducted in one of the clinics provide substantial and undeniable proofs of the girls' unique abilities.

"Growing up, my daughter was just an ordinary child," states Natasha's mother Tatyana Vladimirovna. "Perhaps, she just a bit more mature than other kids her age. Natasha started to talk when she was only 6 months old. At 1, she could already recite Pushkin and Nekrasov by heart. By 3, Natasha mastered the alphabet and learned to operate a snowmobile," continues her mother. "Since early childhood, Natasha has been resistant to cold temperatures. She practically walked around naked till winter. She once walked barefoot in the snow after sauna [Rus. banya] Overall, she was just a normal kid. Never was she able to see through humans!"

The Demkins family remains puzzled as to the origin of their daughter"s gift. Perhaps, Natasha"s latest surgery has triggered such "vision improvement". Natasha"s appendix has been removed. However, by the time she was scheduled to be sent home from the hospital, she could hardly move. Ultrasound revealed that doctors forgot to remove sanitary cotton tampons from the girl"s intestines. Natasha was once again hospitalized and operated for the second time. In a month after that incident, the teenager was able to surprise her mother with her unique quality. "I see a crimped tube similar to our vacuum cleaner inside of you. I also see two beans and a tomato that resembles a bulls' heart," states the girl. Back then, she was not aware of medical terminology and could not provide a proper name for a heart, a liver, a kidney, or intestines. She simply compared what she saw to fruits and vegetables.

Medical workers of children's hospital N1 decided to conduct several experiments in order to gain some insight into the girl"s gift. Natasha was shown a woman with a whole bunch of illnesses. The girl managed to list every single one of them. Further ultrasound examination simply proved her final diagnosis.

Natasha is capable of distinguishing even the tiniest pathology on a molecular level in the deepest corners of a human body, which are usually left undetected by regular ultrasound. "It's like having double vision. I can switch from one to the other in no time if I need to know a person's health problem," says the teenager. "I see an entire human organism. It is difficult to explain how I determine specific illnesses. There are certain impulses that I feel from the damaged organs. The secondary vision works only in daytime and is asleep at night."

Natasha began her studies at a multi-disciplined academy at the Moscow's State University of Ogarev in order to learn more about organism's phenomenal qualities. There she specializes in medicine. "Being able to use medical terminology, I will be able to state the final diagnosis more accurately. I have to know and understand what I see. This will definitely ease my work with people who come for consultations," states Natasha.

In the meantime, the amount of people willing to attend the girls' consultations increases day after day. News about her wonderful gift has quickly spread around their district. Today, the Demkins family accepts about twenty phone calls a day with cries for help.

"We even have people standing in line right before our door," says Natasha. "I cannot turn them down. I do not accept any monetary rewards either. That is why I am often exhausted by the end of the day. Some people do not even thank me."

Doctors themselves often pay visits to the girl. Several times Natasha disproved their final diagnoses. "There was once a lady who had been diagnosed with cancer. I looked at her and did not notice anything like it, just a small cyst. The woman however stated that she had just been diagnosed with cancer." Secondary examination however revealed that Natasha had been right.

"I would like to get into Moscow"s medical academy of Sechenov. However, I do not think that I will be able to pay for my studies- 70,000 rubles annually. Not even my gift can help me in these matters," says Natasha.

Natasha is right. Despite a number of experiments and thorough medical examinations, the girl's gift still needs to be backed up by scientific evidences and facts. Today, the girl hopes that scientists will notice her and conduct all the necessary experiments. "I have nothing to hide," says Natasha. "Let them experiment with me. Perhaps, they will be able to explain the nature of my secondary vision. Then I guess I will have a chance to study at the most prestigious medical school."

I know, but I still won't believe it until I read it standing in line at the grocery store.

That's on the resume she sent to TSA.

I see a crimped tube similar to our vacuum cleaner inside of you!

When she's not tending to her aquarium full of Sea-Monkeys, she amazes everybody with her device that turns $1 bills into $20 bills.

She has been bulking up after "gambling a stamp" and receiving Charles Atlas' free book...prompted by an unfortunate sand-kicking episode at the beach.

Please stop the madness by giving generously. Don't make Natasha eat another vacuum cleaner.

Ah, those are pretty rare in these parts nowadays, mostly due to their extreme microcephaly. Just look for a bird with a tiny head, big mouth, and foul odor...

Batboy is her father. I can be tired or cranky or both in the checkout line at the grocery store, but if I see Bat Boy on the cover of a magazine I have to smile.

Anybody going to catch Bat Boy the musical?

I sense a lack of belief in the truthfulness of "Weekly World News" on this thread. This is an authoritative journal, written by scholars of the utmost integrity. Besides, they have the pictures to prove what they say! Required reading in this house.

Well, I'll tell you two that are true. My father was a doctor. He entered medical school at 31 years of age in 1936. He was profoundly hard of hearing (almost deaf) due to childhood (mumps?) disease. Hearing aids in those days weighed around 25 lb. So he studied from other students' notes as he could not hear the lecturers.

While in residency/internship, he had to develop his own diagnostic techniques. Once, making rounds, he diagnosed a patient as having atrial fibrillation. He did not so much as touch the patient. The proctor asked how he had made the (correct) diagnosis. "I observed the pulse in his neck, sir," he responded.

===================================

My ex-cardiologist, now retired, once had a friend fly into town. The friend came to his house, ready to go golfing. "Let's go!" he said.

"You are not going anywhere except the emergency room."

"What? I feel fine. Let's go."

"You're about to have a heart attack."

Eventually he convinced his friend and drove him to the hospital. The guy had a heart attack in the Emergency Room.

My uncle had a symmetrical experience: went to the doctor for his annual checkup, was informed he was 100% okay, then dropped dead leaving the doctor's office.

If there's anything to it, I bet the effect from her eyes is heat sensing more akin to thermal viwewers rather than X-ray.

Interesting stories. I could tell when my mother went into atrial fib by watching her chest. She also had mechanical heart valves and they would drive me crazy. At times it sounded like an alarm clock in my ear but didn't bother her, my husband, daughter, or anyone else.
