Landmark Screening for Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) Developed

Tired Woman Bombarded by Electronic Devices

Research on EMF and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity is a Game Changer 

EHS Sufferers – Rejoice! Let us give thanks to an international team of researchers who have spent untold hours and thoughtful detective work to identify specific biomarkers in the blood that define and separate out 3 disabling conditions:

  • MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity)
  • EHS (electromagnetic sensitivity)
  • SRI (sensitivity-related illnesses).

The game has changed! It may be too soon to celebrate this awakening, but this puts EHS and MCS into the realm of hard science.

Growing numbers of people worldwide are reporting extremely disabling, multiorgan, non-specific symptoms after even small doses of electromagnetic radiation. How did the researchers unravel this mystery…. 

Symptoms Now Linked to blood parameters

EHS has been a tough condition to define because it includes such a broad range of symptoms. Often a person will say they just don’t feel good, or they get headaches, and often skin reactions, rapid heartbeat, and a host of symptoms too long to list. This has kept doctors baffled, or often attributing the symptoms to stress or an emotional weakness.

How did researchers approach this mystery?

They knew that chronic oxidative damage is a key factor in symptoms related to sensitivity related illnesses, which include EHS and MCS.  Oxidative stress is when the body can’t keep up with the production of free radicals. Free radicals are “nasty molecules” that steal oxygen from other balanced molecules. Your body gets toxic because they are using up the good molecules that usually detoxify you.

The researchers wanted to create a tool that clinicians could use for laboratory diagnosis of each of these syndromes (EHS and MSC). From earlier studies involving MCS, they identified 12 blood markers associated with oxidative stress and impaired detoxification, the hallmarks of both EHS and MCS.

MCS – EHS – and Homeopathy

In this research study, the question they were asking was: “are the EHS subjects going to have the same blood markers as the MCS subjects?”. The answer – yes and no. The EHS group did have similar issues, but seemed to have less severity of inflammatory symptoms. For example, EHS subjects exhibited more skin related issues than the MCS group.

If you have ever visited a naturopath/homeopath, you know that the skin is one way we rid ourselves of toxins (sweat, colds, coughs).  When the body gets sicker, the inflammatory response shows itself deeper in the body. Could it be that those who are suffering from EHS are simply showing that their body is becoming more and more toxic? The testing developed by these researchers can specify which mechanism in the body are not functioning adequately to remove toxins. As they get more toxic, they show more inflammatory symptoms, eventually becoming MCS.

How this helps you talk with your doctor

If you have electromagnetic hypersensitivity, you can now provide your doctor with a landmark study*, which specifies trigger factors for EHS. Until now, there was no cut-and-dried causal relationship between electromagnetic fields and the appearance of clinical symptoms.

The game has changed! It may be too soon to celebrate this awakening but this puts EHS and MCS into the realm of hard science.

In this study, specific deficiencies are explained (eg. reduced levels of glutathione, depletion of Vitamin E and Q10). If your doctor is willing to read this over, they may be able to test you for these issues.

Other steps you can take to help yourself

There are many ways you can protect yourself from electromagnetic radiation. Dr. Charles W. Brown suggests full body protection as your first step. Click here to read more about EMF Protection Strategies.
