Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) is the medical term for a set of health symptoms whose cause is electrically based. It can also called Electrical Sensitivity (ES), Electromagnetic Sensitivity (EMS), EMF Aware, EMF injured, Microwave or Radiation Sickness, and other names. Vested industry interests are trying to control the public’s perception of EHS on Wikipedia by calling EHS pseudoscience, which is false, and harmful to people and the doctors trying to help them.
We are electromagnetic beings, and we are affected by electricity in our environment. The increasing saturation of wireless radiation (cell towers, cell and cordless phones, wi-fi and smart meters) pollutes our air and living environments. In order to maintain health and wellness prudent avoidance of EMF’s is advised. Collectively, we need to reduce and eliminate EMFs to protect public health and nature. See this EMF Health Effects 2019 Survey for a better understanding of EHS.
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.
Dr. Scott Eberle trained as a family physician, worked for nearly two decades as an AIDS specialist, and continues as a hospice medical director. After an episode of carbon monoxide poisoning in 2010, he began having symptoms that, in retrospect, were the initial onset of EHS. In 2013, his health plummeted until he finally figured out the cause. What’s the Diagnosis Doctor? was published in Sonoma Medicine in 2104. An Underworld Journey was published by Ecopsychology in 2017. See also: So You Think You Might Be Electrosensitive and Guidelines for Making a Home Radiowave Safe . Read more from Dr. Eberle here.

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? Increasingly, people realize it is the electromagnetic and microwave radiation making them sick and have taken refuge in the few areas left that are free of microwave radiation. These are the EMF Refugees. There are at present EMF refuges in Sweden, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, the USA, and Japan. For more info and support visit: http://emfrefugee.blogspot.com
Protect your family from EMF pollution: Thousands of people around the world 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. http://www.emfanalysis.com/emf-refugee.html
