Electrical Sensitivity

Hands energyElectrical Sensitivity (ES) can also be called  EMF Aware, EMF Injured, Microwave or Radiation Sickness, Electrical Hypersensitivity (EHS), and other names.

We are electromagnetic beings, and we are affected by EMF’s in our environment.  Some people are learning they must avoid EMF’s in order to maintain their health and wellness. 

Symptoms can vary with each person, depending on:  the strength, type and length of EMF exposure; exposure to other environmental toxins; individual constitution; and basic health practices. Symptoms can be mild to severe including: sleep problems, tinnitus, chronic fatigue, headaches, concentration, memory, learning and immune system problems, heart palpitations. nausea, joint pain, swelling of face, neck, eye problems, rashes, and cancer. 

In order to heal, reducing exposures is imperative. Please see Safety Tips for steps you can take to reduce EMF’s and start feeling better.

Interviews with Electrosensitives: Electromagneticman 

Guideline of the Austrian Medical Association for the diagnosis and treatment of EMF-related health problems and illnesses There has been a sharp rise in unspecific, often stress associated health problems that increasingly present physicians with the challenge of complex differential diagnosis. A cause that has been accorded little attention so far is increasing electrosmog exposure at home, at work and during leisure activities, occurring in addition to chronic stress in personal and working life. It correlates with an overall situation of chronic stress that can lead to burnout. How can physicians respond to this development?

What is an EMF Refugee? It is one of the many thousands of people around the world who are seeking places to live that are free of man-made microwave radiation and electrical pollution. Many have had to give up their career, home, school, community and family in order to find a safe place to exist in our modern world that is now filled with EMF pollution.

    Hi,
    Thank you all for the great work you have been doing.
    I got electrosensitive exactly 2 years ago.
    From my experience and from the experience of many other EHS people, the Steszer filters you are recomending actually harm many EHS instead of help. If I go to a room with filters I actually loose feelings in my legs and my brain is stressed. Money report the same reaction. While they may help some they can harm others and so I would not have recommended them. Furtheremore, they emit VERY high magnetic fields which by themselves are causing damage to EHS people. PLEASE remove this recomendation.

    Thank you

    I recognize some people do not use or advise the stetzer filters. I have them installed on my home, 8 filters outside the house below the breaker box and about 7 scattered throughout where the electricity is on. Yes, they emit a magnetic field, as does electricity/ electrical wiring. I found the EMF field is slightly extended from the filter, but the overall reduction in RF on the wiring- feels to me in my body- more the benefit. So your comment is important to note that for some they cause adverse feeling, and others not.
    Thank you, Sandi

    Take the viewpoints of 2 different building biologists on the filters.

    One is that the Stetzers themselves add to the harmonics:
    http://www.emfrelief.com/capacitive-filters.html
    and that may be why some people are made more ill by it.

    Another is that Stetzers can be bad when there are wiring errors in the home
    http://www.createhealthyhomes.com/cellphone_chips.php
    and thus exacerbate magnetic field issues.

    I once tried checking the magnetic fields, body voltages, and intermediate frequencies with and without Stetzer filters. I think the result varies with the electrical environment. Haven’t figured out exactly as to why, but I decided to unplug them.

    I seem to be able to experience electromagnetic sensitivity when operating specific automobiles and under certain cell phone conditions.
    My doctor dismisses this as something anxiety-related and proposes that I seek counseling. (In all fairness, it seems true that many of the reported symptoms DO MATCH symptoms associated with anxiety.)
    My counselor says there’s no good point to pursue counseling if there is a potentially real physiological issue with electromagnetic energy.
    Soooooooooooooooooo…
    I can’t prove anything and I can’t get help.

    I’d like to get involved in a real study, meet physicians that have seen other cases, and get scientific help with this matter. Most web writing on this subject is unsubstantiated. Many “solutions” to the problem seem to be scams. Who is helping to make this issue “mainstream”; that we’ll find answers and take corrective actions?

    Cars have different technologies- newer cars are loaded with RF sensors and cars have different EMF fields. Doctors need to be educated: Here’s a new study, posted in Shortcut to Science:

    Abstract

    As the prevalence of wireless telecommunication escalates throughout the world, health professionals are faced with the challenge of patients who report symptoms they claim are connected with exposure to some frequencies of electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Some scientists and clinicians acknowledge the phenomenon of hypersensitivity to EMR resulting from common exposures such as wireless systems and electrical devices in the home or workplace; others suggest that electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is psychosomatic or fictitious. Various organizations including the World Health Organization as well as some nation states are carefully exploring this clinical phenomenon in order to better explain the rising prevalence of non-specific, multi-system, often debilitating symptoms associated with non-ionizing EMR exposure. As well as an assortment of physiological complaints, patients diagnosed with EHS also report profound social and personal challenges, impairing their ability to function normally in society. This paper offers a review of the sparse literature on this perplexing condition and a discussion of the controversy surrounding the legitimacy of the EHS diagnosis. Recommendations are provided to assist health professionals in caring for individuals complaining of EHS.

    Highlights

    ► Many people report symptoms when near devices emanating electromagnetic fields(EMF). ► Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) research has generated conflicting outcomes. ► Recent evidence suggests pathophysiological change in some individuals with EHS. ► EHS patients consistently report profound social and personal challenges. ► Clinicians need to be apprised of the EHS condition and potential interventions.

    Dealing with allergies to electricity definitely can and has made life miserable or unbearable at times. I believe it was around 2011 when I developed allergies to electricity, and I want to share a few tips that helped me with my ES. Being in a humid and warm environment is better than being in a dry and cold environment. I only have mild symptoms so I use a humidifier and just the essential amount of heating to help me deal with ES. However, humidifiers and heating do use electricity and I understand that what currently works for me may not work for those with severe ES. Using a spray bottle to spray water in the air to humidify the air is a simple and cheap way to help reduce ES. Perhaps, lighting a candle in the room is a good alternative way to heat up the environment without electricity. I don’t have oogles of money to buy expensive materials or to move to another location, so I wanted to provide inexpensive suggestions for poor people like me. :) Candles and a spray bottle with water, 2 cheap and simple ways to help you with ES.

  7. It appears that EMF is the cause of many illnesses that I have not been aware of. I’m using a product called PowerGard that is controlling the in home radiation to a minimal level. It is a easy to install and they have an inexpensive meter to use to check the intensity of the radiation. I would recommend it. http://www.nevvusworld.com/emfbuster

    In the past 10 years my tinnitus has gotten a lot worse and i am always saying that everything in these articles are causing it/ Interesting and thank you

  10. Donna says:

    Regarding the Stetzer filters…my observation with them is that they can reduce the dirty electricity on the wiring in your home, HOWEVER – a person should have something like a Trifield 100XE meter or other device which measures the magnetic fields before and after installing the filters. If a circuit has a wiring error a huge magnetic field will be created over a significant area of the house when the filter is installed (not just the usual few inches from the filter). Many homes have wiring errors which can easily be detected by plugging in a Stetzer! Karl Reilly has a book and video on how to fix these errors, they usually occur in the junction boxes where they’ve connected the same neutral to different circuits.

    Thank you Dr Klinghardt for accelerating our awareness. We have a smart meter installed at the end of our driveway [approx. 200 ft] Are the emmsions any weaker because of the distance fromn our home? There’s also another meter on the same pole for the neighbor. If they don’t remove theirs, are we still in danger. Also the utility co. {Poudre Valley REA} based in Ft Collins, Co states that they can dial down the frequency on each meter manually. Does that work? They’re actually appearing to be cooperative. This is not he case with the utility co. that services Ft Collins, as they’ve actually sent the police out to reinstall smart meters after homeowners have romoved them. Not sure you’re aware of that fact!
    Appreciate a quick response.
    thank you………..Bob Goldfarb

    Distance makes a difference, and 200 feet is good, however the pulses transmit often and for at least 1/10 of a mile or more. This is the first I’ve heard that a company can dial down the emissions. (the frequency cannot change, but maybe the number of transmissions can>) We advocate using the analog meters. Here’s why/ from the FAQ:
    Why do you promote analog meters, why not promote wired meters? In 2010 when we first started to campaign against smart meters, we asked for a wired meter alternative. However we changed our position to support only the analog meter. Our reasons include:

    Wired meters will still collect data on how we use power in our homes- which is still a privacy risk.
    Wired smart meters emit radiation onto the electrical lines. The utilities call it “unintentional radiation”. This is dirty electricity and it affects our health. More info.
    Wired, digital meters cost up to 10X more than an analog and will not have near the useful life an analog has. It will have to be replaced more often and that cost will be paid by customers.

    Customer resistance and our collective demand for analogs won us the right to opt out- to an analog meter in California. The utilities were trying to force us to take a “radio off” wired meter, but the legal opt out meter is the analog. We were also told “they don’t make analogs anymore” but that is just not true. Analogs are available and will be if customers demand them.
