Life With EMF Sensitivity
Life with EHS (electromagnetic sensitivity) can make using or exposure to everyday electronics a source of discomfort, causing difficulty concentrating, fatigue, headaches, and more. Learn about the side effects of EHS, what drove a woman named Monique to move to a town with no Wi-Fi, and how to eliminate electromagnetic radiation from the home or office.
For many, exposure to devices’ ever-present EMFs (electromagnetic fields) is a source of discomfort, due to EMF sensitivity. Normal, everyday situations like attending class, taking a call, or working in an office can cause headaches, disruption of sleep, irritability, and more (1). What’s it like living with EMF sensitivity, and what defense is there from EMFs?
Electromagnetic frequencies are emitted from a variety of sources, such as cellphones, televisions, computers, Wi-Fi routers, tablets, and even certain hybrid cars (2). Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) affects a small number of people in the world, and many with this condition may be unaware of what’s causing their symptoms. Those with EHS have described having difficulty concentrating, fatigue, headaches, disruptions in sleep, anxiety, depression, and decreased memory.
EMFs can cause breaks in concentration, causing those with EHS to stop and refocus. Some have even changed their lifestyles to reduce EMF exposure, reducing time on the computer and other sources.
These invisible EMFs can reduce energy and cause fatigue, leaving those with EHS feeling drained. In conjunction with the other symptoms, this can make the days seem long and difficult.
Those with EHS report headaches after long hours of scrolling through social media, working on the computer, or exposure to fluorescent lights.
Sleeping near a Wi-Fi router or other sources of EMFs can cause restless tossing and turning instead of a refreshing night’s sleep (3).
Anxiety and Depression:
EMF exposure has been linked to anxiety and depression for those with EHS, which could in some instances further the headaches, sleep disruption, and other symptoms (4).
LIFE WITH EHS
After several inconclusive visits to an internist, psychologist, and neurologist, Monique Grimes decided it was time for a change so that she could alleviate her EHS symptoms. After a move to Florida for a new job, Monique became afflicted with heart palpitations, nausea, and jumbled speech. Her visits to see professionals were unsuccessful, even after finding out about EHS and asking about her conditions.“They look at you like you have three heads,” said Monique. Her journey led her to move to Green Bank, a town where citizens are prohibited from using cellphones, laptops, or any device that creates electromagnetic frequencies. She married a local named Tom Grimes and together they work on a farm, enjoying the peace and quiet of one of the last places on Earth without the radiation emitted from everyday electronics (5).
Noted researcher and EMF expert Steven Magee said: “When people query whether Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) is real or not, my answer is always: Sweden has recognized this condition for a decade and has approximately 300,000 EHS people.” Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity is real. For many, it makes everyday tasks involving electronics uncomfortable and even unhealthy (6).
PROTECTION WITH A QI DEVICE
One doesn’t need to have EHS to be affected by EMF radiation. EMF exposure can still cause discomfort to those who don’t have EHS. Others who aren’t hypersensitive have reported some of the symptoms described in this article like insomnia, headaches, and a lack of focus related to electronics. Fortunately, not everyone needs to “get off the grid” to find relief.
