Electromagnetic hypersensitivity

Every person reacts differently to electromagnetic fields. Those who can perceive field strengths well below the existing exposure limits are referred to as "electrosensitive" or "electromagnetic hypersensitive." Approximately one to five percent*of the population is estimated to be electrosensitive.

Unfortunately these people are often told that their symptoms are only psychological. They are labeled as fearmongers, electrophobes, or wackos. A study performed at the ETH Zurich, however, has proven beyond any doubt that electromagnetic hypersensitivity does exist and that it is not just a product of the imagination.

There is no such thing as an electrosmog disease, but electrosmog is able to promote, trigger, and affect various disease patterns. Thus, those affected complain about, for example, sleep disorders, headaches, feeling unwell, lack of energy and concentration, nervousness, dizziness, or even skin irritations.

Since electromagnetic hypersensitivity cannot be cured, those suffering should try to make their immediate surroundings as electrosmog-free as possible. Certain emission sources cannot be completely eliminated, but it is possible to considerably reduce the total exposure.

Our Web portal electrosmog-free-living can offer help. However, a comprehensive consultation with an EMF expert is highly recommended because this Web portal makes no claim of being exhaustive.



In addition, advocacy groups for electrosensitive people also offer support:
