A growing Health Problem in our Electronic World
Electrical Hypersensitivity (EHS) can be difficult to understand and even more difficult for doctors to diagnose. Many doctors and other health professionals here in North America are not yet aware of the recent scientific evidence surrounding dirty electricity and its effects on human health, so many victims are treated with pharmaceuticals, deemed mentally ill or left untreated.
In 2001 Sweden recognized EHS as a functional impairment, and at the time and estimated over 3% of the population in that country suffered severe symptoms related to EMF exposure. According to recent estimates EHS severely affects 3 to 8% of the population in developed counties, and another 35% - 50% moderately. With increasing exposure to electrical pollution these numbers are bound to increase.
According to a December 2005 press release issued by the World Health Organization (EHS) is a "growing worldwide health concern".
The World Health Organization's definition of Electrical Hypersensitivity:
"EHS is characterized by a variety of non-specific symptoms, which afflicted individuals attribute to exposure to EMF. The symptoms most commonly experienced include dermatological symptoms (redness, tingling, and burning sensations) as well as neurasthenic and vegetative symptoms (fatigue, tiredness, concentration difficulties, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitation and digestive disturbances). The collection of symptoms is not part of any recognized syndrome.
--(WHO Fact sheet #296, December 2005).
If you have any of the symptoms below you may be suffering from the condition Electrical Hypersensitivity, an allergic-like reaction to exposure to dirty electricity and other forms of electromagnetic pollution.
General Symptoms of Electrical Hypersensitivity (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, "Flue-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; dehydration; 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.
- Most suffers tend to be women, often 40+
- Symptoms tend to worsens over time and with continued exposure
- Many EHS sufferers also suffer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
- Children are significantly affected as they are still developing
- Many improve quickly when returned to an electrically clean environment
With continued exposure to dirty electricity people get progressively worse. So, it is important to minimize one's exposure to energy efficient CFL light bulbs and to other appliances that generate high frequencies, and that includes plasma televisions, computers, mobile phones and wireless devices.
One thing is known -- many sufferers improve quickly when they are returned to an electro-magnetically clean environment free of dirty electricity, where within a few days notice that certain health problems disappear.

A filter to clean up dirty electricity?
Scientific studies show that by equipping a home with GS filters it's possible to alleviate many of the symptoms associated with "electrical sensitivities", while at the same time protecting one's health by reducing ongoing to this ubiquitous environmental toxin. Results from several recent scientific studies and shown that in schools and homes where levels of dirty electricity were lowered by using GS filters, symptoms of several chronic health disorders were dramatically diminished.
Dr. Magda Havas led The World Health Organisation workshop on Electrical Hypersensitivity; she has conducted numerous blind studies using GS filters. These studies suggest that installing GS filters can benefit those who suffer from electrical sensitivities and a range of other health-related concerns including headaches and diseases such as MS and diabetes. Children with ADD-like symptoms, and asthma also benefited from the installation of the filters.

GS filters: The Solution to the Problem of dirty electricity
"Preliminary Results are Absolutely Remarkable"
"People are experiencing better quality sleep and are enjoying higher energy levels during the day. Not only do the GS filters help people who are electrically sensitive, they are having a positive impact on people with multiple sclerosis and diabetes. More specifically, results from pilot studies show that some people with MS who previously had difficulty walking or were dependent on canes are now walking unassisted and with reduced pain. Diabetics who had the filters installed in their homes have lower fasting blood sugar levels and require less insulin," said Dr. Havas.
There are no treatments that can substitute for reducing or eliminating exposure to dirty electricity and high frequencies. However, there are some nutritional approaches that may be helpful in rebuilding the body's damaged systems after exposure high frequency dirty electricity is substantially reduced or eliminated.

"With everything I know about the health dangers associated with electromagnetic fields (EMF) I'm convinced EHS is a real and looming health disaster."
