Electrosensitivity

Have you heard about the terms Electrosensitivity (ES) and Electrohypersensitivity (EHS)? Unfortunately, these terms may become ubiquitous as more and more people suffer the effects of constantly being exposed to man-made electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency (RF) radiation.

Electromagnetic fields and RF radiation stem from electronic devices such as cell phones, wireless (Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Max) networks, smart meters, computers, household appliances, baby phones, cordless phones, fluorescent lighting, electric blankets, household wiring, and power lines, to name a few. Cell phone antennas/towers also emit Radiofrequency (RF) radiation. If you live in a city, chances are high that you have a cell phone antenna as an unwanted neighbor.

An excellent website where you can look up if you are close to an antenna is: www.antennasearch.com

The potential that wireless RF radiation can harm human beings has brought the World Health Organization (WHO) to recently classify RF radiation from cell phones as a Class 2B carcinogen, meaning it is a possible cancer-causing agent. This is the same categorization as lead, DDT, pesticides and chloroform.

The human body is not equipped to deal with the 24/7 onslaught of man-made EMF and RF radiation pollution that it is exposed to. Every day new wireless and electronic devices are added to this array of electromagnetic fields. Research has shown that these fields can influence the “Van der Walls” bonds that hold molecules in place causing stress and harm to the body.

Other effects of EMF/RF Radiation Exposure include:

  • Abnormal influx of calcium into cells, which can lead to and trigger allergic reactions.
  • Mitochondria dysfunction. Mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cells creating energy. This could explain the common link between fatigue and RF radiation exposure.
  • Depolarization of red blood cells, causing them to clump together and consequently carrying less oxygen.
  • Decreased number of Natural Killer Cells (white blood cells), weakening the immune system.
  • Weakening of the blood-brain barrier, causing toxins to enter the brain more readily.
  • Decrease of 5-HTP in the blood that can lead to depression
  • Induction of a stress response with elevated cortisol levels, causing hyperactivity and consequently weakening of the adrenals.
  • Altered production of Melatonin, causing sleep difficulties.

In Sweden, Electrosensitivity and Electrohypersensitivty are recognized diseases. Therefore Sweden has created “cell phone and Wi-Fi free” places where people can go to recover.

Research shows that approximately 3% of the population has severe forms of EHS and another 35% has moderate symptoms such as an impaired immune system and chronic illness.

Normally, symptoms occur when exposed to EMF (electromagnetic fields) and EMR (electromagnetic radiation) and subside when moving away from the fields. The problem is that over time the body gets more and more sensitive and symptoms occur when exposed to only small amounts of EMF/EMR.

This chart shows the stress response of the Autonomous Nervous System of a healthy person and an electrosensitive person when exposed to a DECT phone. (cordless phone).

 

What are the typical symptoms?

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Vertigo
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Brain Fog
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Skin problems (rash)
  • Heart palpitations
  • Sore throat
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Tingling in extremities
  • Infertility / low sperm count

Less common are:

  • Allergies
  • Light sensitivity
  • Nose bleeds
  • Frequent urination
  • Flu-like symptoms and many more…

Since most physicians are not trained in EHS and are not aware of the problem, most likely he/she will not make a connection to EMF/EMR exposure and you will end up with a drug to mask your symptoms.

What can you do?

Most importantly: LIMIT YOUR EXPOSURE

  • Limit your cell phone usage to a minimum.
  • When talking on a cell phone, put it on speaker and hold it away from your head.
  • Use an air-tube headset when talking.
  • Turn off your home/office wireless network and use the old fashioned cables.
  • Ask your neighbors to turn off their wireless networks when they are not using the internet and especially when sleeping.
  • Remove cordless (DECT) phones in your home. (They emit an enormous amount of RF radiation).
  • Never carry your cell phone on your body.
  • Do not give a cell phone to your child (except for emergencies). Kids have thinner skulls and the radiation travels deep inside their brains.
  • Do not use your cell phone in the car. The car acts as a Farraday cage, trapping the radiation in the car and therefore increasing it.
  • Turn off the internet connection (3G/4G) on your smartphone (smartphones constantly are emitting RF radiation to search for a signal and to send/receive data).
  • Do not put your laptop on your lap and try to keep away from your body.
  • Switch out CFL light bulbs to standard ones – Yes, I am an environmentalist, but health comes first!
  • Unplug all electric devices in your house when not in use. (Appliances in stand by mode still create an electromagnetic field).
  • If you are in close proximity to several cell phone antennas – move to another place.
  • Remove dimmer switches/electric blankets.
  • Sleep in an electricity-free bedroom.
  • Sleep on a metal-free bed (Metal acts as a conductor).
  • Do not use a microwave oven.
  • Switch from electronic alarm clocks to battery-powered.

DETOXIFY YOUR BODY

  • Do a targeted radiation detox (I can help with this)
  • Remove amalgam fillings in your teeth that contain mercury. Make sure you do this with a green-certified dentist.
  • Detoxify your body from heavy metals. (Any metals in your body will act as a conductor. I can help you with designing a targeted heavy metal detox for you)
  • Remove all jewelry from your body (they also act as a conductor)
  • Instead of wearing glasses with a metal frame, wear contact lenses instead.
  • Take regular Epsom salt baths
  • Drink lots of clean/filtered water
  • Sweat as often as possible (Sweating will draw toxins out)
  • Exercise regularly
  • Do saunas twice a week. Infrared saunas are best.
  • Take walks on the beach (negatively charged irons will help you clear your system).
  • Only use organic cleaning supplies for cleaning your house and clothes (to reduce further toxic burden on the body).
  • Switch to organic make up.
  • Use non-fluoridated toothpaste (another toxin to avoid).

OPTIMIZE YOUR NUTRITIONAL INTAKE

  • Take a high quality mineral supplement (best taken in liquid form to enhance absorption rate) This will help in keeping your cell membranes strong.
  • Eat only organic vegetables and fruit
  • Avoid any processed foods
  • Do not drink sodas
  • Take Antioxidants supplements
  • Load up on B vitamins. They strengthen the nervous system

There are also companies out there that claim their products can remove unwanted electromagnetic radiation by using devices that you can plug into the electrical outlet to remove dirty electricity. Others claim that their pendants will protect you from harm. Personally, I have not tested them and cannot give a recommendation. However, I did want to mention them.

The most important thing to do if you are experiencing electro-sensitivity related symptom is to limit your exposure and to slowly bring your life into alignment with what your body needs. Our society has treated all of our new electrical gadgets as toys without understanding the consequences to our health. You can begin to shift this understanding.

My intention for this newsletter is to raise awareness of this important issue. Hopefully, you feel inspired and motivated to implement some or all of the above suggestions to lead a more healthy and fulfilling life.

As always, I hope this information is useful to you and I am looking forward to your comments and questions.

In health,

Katharina

  1. Hi Dr What can i do about the skin on my fingers.. especially my thumbs and index fingers.. It is so sensitive and sometimes hurt due to me texting or even typing on the phones. I also notice a few blister like white patches on the skin as well.. What is that and should I go to a dermatologist for it?

    1. HI Rhea,

      You can try not using your phone that much and seeing if it makes a difference. It is known that some electro-sensitive people react with blisters to the radiation. You can also try taking Epsom salt baths, which sometimes helps as well.
      Of course, if the blisters do not go away, I suggest you see a dermatologist.
      All the best,
      Katharina

  2. Mam I am from India when the any one in call and when they come near my head …I get chronic head ache plzz say me what I should do my life has become difficult

    1. Hello,
      I am very sorry to hear about your health concerns. What you describe is a very typical response to cell phone radiation. The best thing to do is to never put your cell phone next to your head. Use speakers instead. Turn off or put your phone on airplane mode when you not use it as the phone will connect to the network every few seconds to check for new emails and updates etc. Every time it does so, it sends out a very large field of electromagnetic radiation.
      If you are already sensitive to the radiation, you also need to make sure your home, and especially your bedroom if free from EMF. I suggest you contact Jeromy, the EMF expert as he can help you do just that. Contact him through his website: http://www.emfanalysis.com

      1. Thank you for such good information????????????????????I really thank you from my heart but I am wondering if I can cure it? Is it possible to improve Emf sensitivity through food maintaining a good diet?

        1. You can definitely improve it by making sure you get enough Omega 3 fatty acids that are found in fatty fish. These have been shown to stabilize cell membranes, especially of nerve cells, which should help. You can of course also get a high quality supplement. Another aspect to consider is to detox your body from heavy metals as they can act like an “antenna” in the body and make symptoms worse.

  3. Metal parts on beds induce currents into the body, rather than conduct. Mattresses insulate you from conductivity but inductive radiation reduces only with distance.
    Fans and motors can induce easily as their fields are quite big. Driving a van when you sit on top of the engine can be problematic due to the close distance to the alternator. Also cooking with a range hood extractor over the stove can place your head right next to the electric motor of the fan.
    Walking on a beach should be done with bare feet and close to the water where the sand is wet. Wet grass is brilliant too, but I find the magic doesn’t happen for at least 30min. The neighbors find it quite disconcerting when you stand outside in the rain at 10pm!

    1. Thanks Frank for your valuable input!

      And yes, doing things that are a bit outside of the norm might be baffling to others.. but hey, who cares as long as it makes you feel good : )

  4. I’ve put into place all these protocals to reduce the wifi Radiation and EMF. One thing rarely addressed is the stray voltage coming right through the walls and floor. I used a traditional electrician’s voltage meter with a grounding cord to test what was coming into my body. Even if lights are turned off it still can be high. The best solution is having MC cables put in to replace romex wiring. All the voltage is contained and grounded with MC and won’t stray into the body or metal in the room. Of course turning off circuit breakers works too but you won’t have electricity.

    1. Yes, that is correct Dana. This is called “dirty electricity”.
      You can find out which circuit breaker leads to your bedroom and then just turn it off at night. That´s what I do and it really helps getting a more restful sleep.

  5. “In Sweden, Electrosensitivity and Electrohypersensitivty are recognized diseases. Therefore Sweden has created “cell phone and Wi-Fi free” places where people can go to recover.” Thank you for this information. Can you tell me how to find out about EMF-free places in Sweden and how to get in touch with them? Thanks.

    1. Hi Roger,
      Have you tried doing a google search? Sorry, but I don´t have any leads for you regarding Sweden.
      Hopefully, more of these places will pop up in the future.
      Wishing you the very best.
      Blessings,
      Katharina

  6. Hello, I want to know if there is some sort of cure for electrohypersensitivity. For the past three years, I have noticed that I cannot stay in front of a screen, be it TV, Phone, or even movie theater for more than 30 mins to an hour without starting to feel a plethora of symptoms: Palpations, sweating, fatique, the inability to speak and think properly…I used to think that I was just some unlucky person as i have not met anyone in real life that goes through this on a regular basis.

    1. Hi Albert,
      Sorry to hear about your health concerns. The best thing you can do is making sure your house is properly shielded. I suggest you contact Jeromy at wwww.emfanalysis.com as he is the expert and will be able to help you. Once you are not exposed to the radiation anymore, your body has a chance to recover. Wishing you the very best!
