People suffer sensitivities to many things, such as: pollen, mould, chemicals and food items like wheat and dairy. Well, there is an ever-growing populations that is now suffering EHS. Although; with EHS many symptoms may be far worse than just being sensitive.
Read on for Symptoms of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity
Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) is a physiological disorder characterized by symptoms directly brought on by exposure to electromagnetic fields. It may produce neurological and allergic-type symptoms.
Symptoms may include, but are not limited to:
- Eye irritation
- Skin rash
- Facial swelling
- Joints & muscles pain
- Buzzing/ringing in ears
- Skin numbness
- Abdominal pain
- Breathing difficulty
- Irregular heartbeat
Some may experience an abrupt onset of symptoms following exposure to a new EMF, such as fields associated with a new computer or with new fluorescent lights, or a new home or work environment.
Scientific evidence links Magnetic Fields alone with:
- Brain tumours
- Heart problems
- Reproductive problems
- Memory problems
- Reduced sleep quality
- Effects on hormones
Electrosmog is invisible electromagnetic radiation resulting from both wireless technology and mains electricity
Neuro-behavioural studies report that the closer you live to mobile phone base stations, the more symptoms experienced. One study put the symptoms down to stress and not electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) exposure.
Although for me; it would seem that the exposure would be a strong contributing factor to the stress in the first place.
This featured graph is so interesting… it depicts the results from just one of these studies; showing people who lived the closest to the antennas experienced the following symptoms more often than those who lived further away:
Exposure to electrosmog that is generated by wireless and electronic devices has accelerated to the point that many in society are beginning to experience serious, adverse reactions.
The symptoms of EHS are best described as what’s now also known as “Rapid Aging Syndrome”
Many of these symptoms are more common as we age; normal aging for some. The difference between RAS and real aging is that, when EHS sufferers move into an electromagnetically clean environment, there symptoms lessen or go away completely; hence far from normal “Rapid Aging Syndrome” (RAS)
An increasingly common response is:
- The clumping of red blood cells
- Heart palpitations
- Pain &/or pressure in the chest
- Up-regulation of the body’s stress response… (fight or flight)
- Down-regulation of the body’s ability to rest, digest and repair
Those with EHS who have prolonged chronic exposure may develop psychological problems effecting their ability to function well in their workplace or with daily activities.
There is a social stigma that many endure with EHS and that is that the symptoms are imagined, in their head and not real.
I for one are most certainly on the side of the sufferer, I see it firsthand… I know it’s not in their head.
