EMF Sensitivity™ ©2016, ©2018. All rights reserved.
A.K.A. Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, EMF Sensitive, Electromagnetic Field Senstiive, EHS, Electosensitivity, Electrical Sensitivity, Radio Frequency Intolerance, EMF Allergic, Electromagnetic Awareness, Electro-Sensitivity
Are people gaming the system by claiming they have EHS just to get out of working for a living? I am sure there are.
Are people who have various psychological adaptive disorders claiming they have EHS? I’m sure there are.
Are people claiming to have EHS who are actually sensitive to strong electromagnetic fields? I have no doubt.
So much time and money has gone into trying to disprove that EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity) actually exists. Why so much effort? What would it imply if EHS were a real physical health issue and not a mental health issue? What would it mean if the numbers of EHS people were growing? (...and, they do appear to be increasing each year.)
If you are reading this page, you are most likely aware of the "scientific" studies that claim that EHS seems to be nothing more than an imagined phenomena. Are all those suffering from EHS delusional, insane? Is there yet an unidentified group suffering from EHS who don't even realize it or are in denial?
Do you often feel an unexplainable pressure inside your skull, tingling or heat sensations on your skin, unexplainable rashes, sudden heart palpitations, insomnia, vertigo, dizziness, or constant fatigue?
Do you have a thyroid condition, premature cataracts, headaches only when you are home or at the office, ADHD, short-term memory lapses, mood shifts, adrenal stress, or any strange symptom which the doctors can't pinpoint the cause?
All of these experiences or symptoms have been shown to be possibly caused by entering a powerful electromagnetic field or from prolonged exposure to an electromagnetic field. People who can feel these fields or experience discomfort often are identified as having EHS (Electro-Hypersensitivity) or, as we prefer: EMF (electromagnetic field radiation) Sensitivity. Some don't like this term, either. Call it what you will: EMF Awareness, EMF Affected, etcetera.
Electromagnetic fields are created by such devices as WiFi routers, cell phones, cell tower transmitters, power lines, home wiring errors, hybrid cars, and much more. According to what I've read, persons with EMF Sensitivity are estimated to comprise 3-5% of the population. We see this number increasing and could possibly be much higher due to both the growing awareness of EMF health effects and the constant addition of new wireless technologies.
We have noticed that those who claim to be sensitive or aware of EMF usually began feeling this energy in their early to mid-forties (although lately, we're encountering more and more clients in their thirties and twenties.) Most can relate back to a time in their lives when they spent long periods of time within or nearby strong electromagnetic fields.
I was in my mid-forties when I first began presenting signs of EMF Sensitivity. The first thing I noticed was that I could no longer speak with the cell phone up against my ear. I would get a sharp pain in the eardrum area. I could still use the phone's speaker to converse, but it seemed that as time went by, I'd have to hold the phone further and further away.
I also noticed that while walking around NYC, I would suddenly get a very sharp pain in my head. If I looked up and around, there would be a cell transmitter very close by, every single time! As the months went by, I noticed that there continued to be a 100% correlation between my getting this sharp pang of pain and there being a nearby transmitter.
This was an awful realization. These transmitters are everywhere! In the subways, everyone has a cell phone turned ON! Now, this was starting to become a little unnerving.
For me, depending on my level and time of exposure, these symptoms were: an uncomfortable pressure in my cerebral cortex and occipital lobe areas, insomnia, concentration issues, short-term memory lapses, occasional vertigo, occasional loud ringing in the ears, unexplainable rashes, headaches, sharp pain in the head region.
Before beginning, let's make this perfectly clear: all of us are adversely effected by EMFs. Growing numbers are suffering from uncomfortable physical symptoms to illness due to EMF. I have tested many homes of those who claim to have EMF Sensitivity. Where certain clients felt the most discomfort was where the levels were the highest.
As already indicated, I'm aware of the studies where they say the "data" proves that this is purely psychosomatic and idiopathic. For me, the pain was so real, it was difficult to believe that this was made up by my subconscious. Yes, anything is possible when it comes to the tricks the mind can play. But, what explained the times when I got the sharp pang without foreknowing that a cell transmitter was very close and pointed right at me?
Fortunately, I understand the scientific method and process. I looked into every single one of these "studies" which claimed that EHS was "bunk." What did I uncover?
Every single one of these "studies" that claim to disprove EHS had a least one flaw in either their assumption, method, or interpretation of the data. To add: any person who has studied statistics or the scientific method knows that a clever person can create a "study" to prove or disprove just about anything!
So the concept of replicability enters the scientific testing protocols for verifiability. If an experiment cannot be replicated, then its conclusions cannot be taken seriously.
Well, firstly, all pain is in the head! It's our brains that receive the signals from the irritated nerves and then registers these sensations as pain.
In the case where someone says that they felt pressure from the microwaves and then 10 seconds later did not, when they were exposed again, does not conclude that this person was making their sensitivity up. And, for a scientist to make this conclusion only provides us the fact that they do not understand the nature of EHS, at all.
If the nerves within the surrounding fine tissue containing trace amounts of metals such as copper, iron, silver, and others are irritated and that fine tissue now becomes swollen in reaction to the irritation, the nerves may be unable to differentiate a second exposure If the surrounding tissue remains swelled, it will feel like one continuous pressure.
In another study showing someone who was "proven" to be duped by a placebo exposure to electromagnetism while they are sitting nearby the testing machine with its two-pronged plug In the nearby wall outlet, while having their feet near the wall containing 120 volts running through Romex cable, and while being in a room filled with fluorescent lighting is just another of the idiotic "conclusive scientific experiments" that only proves the scientists' lack of an understanding of EHS.
Because we all have different levels of metals in our tissues and we all have different levels each day, these sorts of tests are impossible to replicate.
None of these "studies" are worth a nickel. If I'm in a room with someone who claims they are EMF sensitive and I'm feeling something and they tell me they are feeling the same thing in the exact same place as what I am feeling, well then, that's good enough for me. Period!
And, please don't get me started on studies coming from "third-party independent labs." People can be so gullible when it comes to the science and medical industry.
Our experience has been verified by scientific studies proving that there are many consistencies between chemical toxicity and EMF toxicity. One significant result is that both interfere with calcium ion (Ca2+) motility and signaling in the body. This interference has a direct effect not only on our neurology but also on our immune function. It appears that chemical and EMF sensitivity are natural results of becoming over-exposed to particular environmental stressors or toxins.
The human body is capable of sensing the lowest levels of electromagnetism. Dr. Robert O. Becker (The Body Electric) demonstrated that the human body is sensitive to a direct electrical stimulation down to nearly 100 nano-amperes. A nano-amp is a billionth of an amp or 0.0000000001 amps. A typical American wall-outlet can handle 15-20 amperes. Today, Mount Sinai Hospital is using electrical stimulation of just a few hundred nano-amps to accelerate bone cell regeneration.
Now, if you take the cellular signal broadcasted by my iPad mini retina display and measure it with one of our professional meters, the radio frequency radiation emissions read a max-hold at 38.16 milli-amperes per meter (mA/m). Considering that this energy is from an area field dispersion of amperage and not a direct stimulation, as used by doctors at Mt. Sinai, this translates as much more than 38 million times higher than the lowest levels our bodies can naturally detect. Keep in mind, this is just the energy level measured from one isolated iPad, not 80+ cell phones in a crowded subway car!
With a simple electrician's multi-meter or our skin-voltage monitor, we can see that the skin will react to electromagnetic fields with a strength as low as a thousandth of a volt, but the test subject will not consciously feel anything on their skin until it gets to many volts.
To elucidate even further on how sensitive we are to the smallest amounts of microsimulation from electromagnetism, Guy Doron and Michael Brecht published a work in 2015 titled, "What Single-Cell Stimulation Has Told Us About Neural Coding."
In this report they state, "The later development of intracortical microstimulation (ICMS), a technique in which trains of short (100–200 ms) constant electrical pulses of small current intensities (1–100mA) are delivered extracellularly via a microelectrode at rates of tens to hundreds of Hertz, enabled a more reliable activation of localized populations of neurons and directly influenced sensory perception, movement, and cognition."
Yes. Science is speaking. So, actually, we are all hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields. We see this proved almost every day. If you had your skin-conductance tested while entering the most common and casual electromagnetic fields such as one emitted by a table lamp, the voltage on your skin, from head to toe, would instantly and reactively increase with every inch you moved closer to the center of this EMF source. This is why it is so critical in our work that we mitigate the fields closet to our clients; the fields created within their own homes and workplaces.
So many with EMF sensitivity feel that it's just not fair that some of us can become so affected by electromagnetism while the greater majority (95-98%) do not sense or feel it at all. This is just another case where the old adage applies,"the world is just not fair." It's no joke, though, for those who suffer, often alone, with this health issue. Occasionally, I will hear that even a client's spouse thinks that they are just looney. Yes. It can be lonely, scary, and confusing.
There is hope. There is definitely a way to lessen this sensitivity. Removing trace metals from the blood takes time, but clients have done it. EMF Sensitivity of the skin tissues can be lessened also, but this takes a little longer. Discharging trace metals from the brain area just takes even longer; usually 6-12 months. There is a way to metaphorically bloom like the colorful lotus blossom pictured above and rise from those feelings of being oppressed and burdened by EMF that are everywhere you go.
Coping with the overt symptoms of EMF Sensitivity begins on the cellular level.
Of course, none of us can consciously sense levels as low as a few hundred nano-amps, but there is mounting scientific evidence that conscious sensitivity to higher levels is a natural result of one having higher than normal trace metals or even naturally occurring biogenic magnetite in their tissues. The later was a result of a study by Caltech's Joseph Kirschvink, in 1992.
Here, Kirschvink reveals that we all have ferromagnetic magnetite (Fe3O4) in our brain tissue and throughout our bodies. Iron not only acts as an antennae for electromagnetism, but it magnifies its intensity.
In 1975, Allen Frey demonstrated that continuous exposure to microwaves at power densities as low as 30 micro-watts can weaken fine membranes such as the blood-brain barrier (BBB). A permeable BBB will allow larger sized trace-heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, aluminum, lead, antimony, and others, to penetrate the BBB. These metals can easily latch onto nearby magnetite and add to the already naturally occurring antennae.
Eberhard et al (2008) report that two-hour exposures to cell phone GSM microwave RF resulted in leakage of albumin across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and in neuron damage. Neuronal albumin uptake was significantly correlated with the occurrence of damaged neurons when measured at 28 days post-exposure. The lowest exposure level was 0.12 mW/kg (0.00012 W/kg) for two hours. The highest exposure level was 120 mW/kg (0.12 W/kg). The weakest exposure level showed the greatest effect in opening the BBB, and in neuron damage and death. https://www.elexana.com/news/2017/12/22/cell-phone-study-drastically-lowers-safety-thresholds
Why do I say, "Naturally occurring antenna?" Because in 2016, the same Joseph Kirschvink proved that we use, and probably have always instinctively used, our magnetite to sense polarity changes in the Earth's magnetic fields to aid in our brain's awareness of daytime's short waves shifting to night time's much longer waves. When this connection is made, the pineal gland is signaled to begin production of melatonin, which most of you know makes us become sleepy.
Once trace-metals magnetically attach to magnetite, they may become more difficult to extricate from the brain, but this is still possible. The folks at www.elexana.com have a program that helps.
It's best for everyone to reduce their exposure to electromagnetic fields, especially powerful ones. The first phase of our program is to lower the electromagnetic field within close proximity of the body while sleeping so that the electromagnet created within the brain has a weakened force. This, ipso facto weakens the magnetic force holding the trace metals to the magnetite. It is while we are asleep that our brain fluids help cleanse the brain.
The human body has the ability to fight off bacteria and foreign proteins, to a point. It also works to emit any inorganic materials that it determines to be harmful. This brings us to the second phase; to give the body the proper supportive nutrients it needs to facilitate the body's efforts to release or transport heavy metals and all other toxins from its cells.
The third phase is to give you the tools and techniques to maintain a lower skin-body voltage on the epidermal and dermal levels, throughout the day. We guide you towards foods and drink that facilitate both the expulsion of toxins and consult on ways to take in less. We suggest various methods for you to move from Sympathetic ON.
We help give your body the chance to heal. The process takes time, but it has proven to be effective.
