A Look at Electrosensitivity

Do you feel weak and generally unwell a lot?

Particularity when you are around any electrical or wireless devices?

Electrosensitivity is an illness that is both highly controversial and misunderstood.  Many doctors are not taught about this condition, resulting in patients often becoming misdiagnosed/maimed as a hypochondriac or with some sort of mental illness.  In the meantime the patient becomes sicker.

Many electrosensitive people have spent thousands of dollars trying to figure out what is causing their symptoms. Slowly this illness is becoming recognized as real, particularly in countries within the UK such as Sweden.

More and more people around the world are becoming sensitive to the exposure to (EMF’s) electromagnetic (microwave frequency) fields that are generated by electrical technologies and wireless systems in our homes and environments today.  Emitting what is known as electro-smog.

As the technologies of today are increasing rapidly – the rise in electrosensitive sufferers will also continue to rise.

Electrosensitivity (ES) is also known as Electo-hypersensitivity (EHS) & Microwave sickness.

‘It is the man made frequencies  that…

Cause the problem of Electrosensitivity’

 We are surrounded by natural frequencies, and our bodies also run on a natural frequency.

  •  Our cells communicate using natural electro-magnetic frequencies.
  •  Our brain emits a constant stream of frequencies.
  •  Our DNA delivers instructions, using natural frequency waves. Without them we couldn’t exist for more  than a second.

Radio Frequency (RF), (also known as microwave frequency) is used in many different applications, such as television, radio, radar systems, microchips (including barcodes) and automatic identification systems, computers, super computers & satellite systems, cell phones and towers, wireless telephones and power/smart meters, various other wireless devices, fluorescent lights (including CFLs), microwave ovens, various other electrical appliances, battery re-chargers, dimmer switches and security and scanning equipment.  Many of which can run wirelessly (Wi-Fi) today.

NOTE: Radio Frequency is also known as microwave frequency. These frequencies are electromagnetic also known as waves and are invisible to see.

Common Symptoms of Electrosensitivity

NOTE:  Although many doctors are not taught about electrosensitivity or don’t class it as an illness – it is always best to get a check up in case some of these symptoms may be related to another underlying health issue.

Because EHS is an environmental sensitivity, avoidance of triggers is essential in preventing symptoms and regaining good health. Like other environmental sensitivities, EHS effects the nervous system and presents a variety of symptoms.  It is also common to have overlapping conditions.

  • Sleep problems – inability to get a “good” nights sleep, waking up, restlessness.
  • Tiredness – abnormal tiredness
  • Feel weak for no apparent reason
  • Various body parts tremor
  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo
  • Impaired balance
  • Headaches – often severe
  • Tinnitus
  • Earaches
  • Skin – feels dry, prone to rashes. Irritation, skin tingling, crawling sensations
  • Memory – short term and long term memory impairment – forgetfulness
  • Lack of concentration
  • Confusion – brain fog
  • Difficulty in learning new things
  • Digestive problems
  • Respiratory problems

  • Chest pains, heart arrhythmia
  • Warmth or burning on face, not unlike strong sunburn
  • Pain in teeth and jaws
  • Eyes – difficulty in seeing, smarting, irritating sensation, pain or a “gritty” feeling
  • Aches & pains for no apparent reason
  • Numbness in various body parts
  • Prickling sensations in various body parts
  • Cramp in arms and legs
  • Depression
  • Mood swings including anger and crying
  • Irritability
  • Stress and anxiety attacks
  • Feelings of agitation
  • Blood pressure changes
  • Nausia

NOTE:  For some electrosensitivity sufferers – the side effects don’t always show/appear when around the item causing the illness. It can take  up to a few days for the effects to occur.  This can be due to what level/s of electromagnetic radiation is already in their body and to what level their body can usually tolerate.

Once the tolerated level is reached – further exposure to Emf’s starts to make their body react quite quickly. Most electrosensitive sufferers can only gage the level by the reaction their body gives.

For many years science hasn’t developed any medical tests to prove someone is electrosensitive, but this is slowly changing – as you will see further down the page in Professor Dominique Belpommes speech.

Evidence of Electrosensitivity

Dr. Magda Havas shows the strong evidence or electrosensitivity and the health risks of electromagnetic exposure caused by electrical appliances and the spread of wireless technologies.

Dr Magda Havas is Associate Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies at Trent University where she teaches and does research on the biological effects of environmental contaminants. Dr. Havas received her Ph.D. from the University of Toronto.

Dr Barry Trower a Retired Military Microwave specialist, Physicist & former British Agent, shares his knowledge about the dangers to human health that electromagnetic frequencies cause – His affidavit to the United States District Court, District of Oregon ,Portland Division here

Diagnostic and Therapeutic Protocols for the…

Electromagnetic Fields Intolerance

For many years science hasn’t developed any medical tests to prove someone is electrosensitive – resulting in many sufferers being labelled as having a mental illness. This is slowly changing.

Prof. Dominique Belpomme is an Oncologist, Professor of the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Necker-Enfants Malades, Chairman of Research for Anti-Cancer Therapeutics (ARTAC) has come up with a test – Diagnostic and therapeutic protocols for the Electromagnetic Fields Intolerance

Why Doesn’t Every One have Electrosensitivity?

Everyone’s immune system is different. Some people have weakened immune systems, either through their…

  • Genetic system
  • Related to environmental reasons
  • An inability for their body to successfully remove toxins
  • Amalgam fillings or metal implants
  • Excess heavy metals already present in the body
  • Poor nutrition.

Over exposure or long term low exposure to Electromagnetic frequencies (EMF’s) enhances this problem further as it opens up the blood-brain barrier – resulting in toxins being able to flow into/through this barrier and into the brain.

It is hard to keep away from electromagnetic fields in the modern day environment, but limiting your usage of electrical appliances including:

  • Microwave ovens
  • Computers, cellphones
  • Sitting to close to televisions & radios when turned on
  • Wireless devices including childrens toys
  • If you live close to a cell tower or power station – move to another location as this can help reduce the risk of getting electrosensitive, or reduce the effects of those already electrosensitive.
