Possible Health Effects

Electrosensitivity or Hypersensitivity

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity or Electrical Sensitivity

Technology is changing at a staggering pace.  We are now exposed to forces and energies that did not exist decades ago.  Many new diseases and sicknesses have developed since our parent’s generation inkling Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity “EHS” and new types of cancer.  Both may have links to long term, low level, exposure to Electromagnetic fields “EMF” and radio-frequency waves “RF”.  EMF is a man-made pollutant that consists of AC Electric Fields and AC Magnetic Fields.  It is produced from live electrical wiring, electric appliances and electronic devices.  RF waves are produced by all wireless communications products.

Symptoms of EHS

Neurological: headaches, dizziness, nausea, difficulty concentrating, memory loss, irritability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, weakness, tremors, muscle spasms, numbness, tingling, altered reflexes, muscle and joint pain, leg/foot pain, “flu-like” symptoms, fever.  More severe reactions can include seizures, paralysis, psychosis and stroke.

Cardiac: palpitations, arrhythmias, pain or pressure in the chest, low or high blood pressure, slow or fast heart rate, shortness of breath.

Respiratory: sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma.

Dermatological: skin rash, itching, burning, facial flushing.

Ophthalmologic: pain or burning in the eyes, pressure in/behind the eyes, deteriorating vision, floaters, cataracts.

Others: digestive problems, abdominal pain, enlarged thyroid, testicular/ovarian pain, dryness of lips, tongue, mouth, eyes, great thirst, dehydrations, nosebleeds, internal bleeding, altered sugar metabolism, immune abnormalities, redistribution of metals within the body, hair loss, pain in the teeth, deteriorating fillings, impaired sense of smell, ringing in the ears, sensitivity to sounds and light, infertility.

Long Term Health Effects

Adult cancer, tumours, childhood leukaemia, breast cancer, DNA strand breakage, abnormal cell division, nerve damage, MS, ALS, Alzheimer and Parkinson disease, brain damage, melatonin reduction, miscarriages.


The severity of the symptom usually indicated the degree of stage of EHS.  The stages vary from slight discomfort to debilitating long term effects.  Once diagnosed, the complete elimination of electromagnetic radiation is necessary for relief.  Recovery is possible but requires fortification of the immune system.  This has proven to be a multi-step process unique to each individual and assistance from medical professional (Naturopathic or Environmental Doctor) is suggested.
