Sensitivity to EMF has been given the general name “Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity” or EHS. It is sometimes also referred to as electro-sensitivity, or electrical sensitivity (ES).
The hazardous effects of electromagnetic fields on the body are well established at this point as sufferers of electromagnetic hypersensitivity report responding to non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (or electromagnetic radiation) at intensities well below the limits permitted by international radiation safety standards.
Symptoms include headache, fatigue, stress, sleep disturbances, skin symptoms like prickling, burning sensations and rashes, pain and ache in muscles and many other health problems.
Some sufferers report that their electromagnetic hypersensitivity has given them long lasting symptoms and severe handicaps. Treatment and therapy should be directed principally at reducing symptoms and functional handicaps. This should be done in close co-operation with a qualified medical specialist to address the symptoms and a hygienist (to identify and, if necessary, control factors in the environment that have adverse health effects of relevance to the patient).
Although it is difficult to escape electromagnetic fields in modern society, there are effective methods of shielding your home and workspace. If you feel that exposure to electromagnetic fields are affecting your health and quality of life, our customer service associates and technical support team would be happy to advise you on the different shielding solutions that we offer.
