Everything You Need to Know About EMF Sensitivity

Last Updated on: May 4, 2022

It is estimated that around 36% of the general population are sensitive to the effects of EMFs. (1) This is known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS). This sensitivity has also been referred to as electrosensitivity or idiopathic environmental intolerance attributed to electromagnetic fields (IEI-EMF). There are different levels of EHS: the symptoms range from subconscious, to mild, to moderate, to severe. One study estimated that between 5% and 30% of the general population experience mild cases, 1.5% to 5% experience moderate symptoms, and less than 1.5% are severe cases. (2) However, due to a lack of research in the field and underreporting, these estimations may vary as more studies are done.

What Are the Symptoms of EHS?

While research on how EMFs impact us is still a growing field, some common symptoms include:

  • Dulled concentration
  • Headaches
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue and low energy
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Irritability
  • Tingling skin

What Causes These Symptoms?

These symptoms are caused by electromagnetic fields (EMFs). These radiation fields are all around us and are mostly invisible. One example of visible EMFs is sunlight. The sun is one of the earliest EMF emitters to impact us. Sunlight is an example of ionizing radiation. Other examples of ionizing radiation include ultraviolet rays and X-rays. Ionizing radiation is categorized by a short wavelength and non-ionizing radiation is categorized by a longer wavelength. Previously, it was believed that only ionizing radiation was harmful. However, new studies have proven non-ionizing radiation to have equally significant impacts on our health. (3)(4)(5)(6) Some examples of non-ionizing radiation are our cellphones, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microwaves, hairdryers, radio frequencies, laptops, and security scanners.

Our bodies are constantly receiving a stream of both ionizing and non-ionizing EMFs. This constant, long-term exposure to radiation is potentially harmful to us and may cause a wide range of negative health impacts like: skin damage, sleep issues, DNA damage, and changes to the electrical activity in the brain. But what is the science behind these health impacts? And why are our bodies so susceptible to electrical frequencies?

The Science Behind EMFs and EHS

Electricity is everywhere, even in our bodies. Our cells are designed to conduct electrical currents throughout our bodies. Our bodies use electricity to send messenger signals through our nervous system to our brains and bodies. Electricity is then essential for how we move and how our brains function.

How this works has to do with a number of elements, namely: sodium, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. These elements have an electrical charge. This is referred to as “ions.” Our cells use these electrical charges to generate their own electricity. (7)

When we are exposed to a constant stream of EMFs from our cellphones, Wi-Fi, and other modern day technologies, this electricity negatively interferes with the electricity in our bodies, upsetting our electrical processes and leading to a wide range of negative symptoms.
