Electrohypersensitivity Overview

momElectrohypersensitivity (EHS), often referred to as electromagnetic sensitivity (EMS), is an emerging condition. Controversial and unrecognized in many countries, it is an officially and fully recognized functional impairment in Sweden.
The World Health Organization reports that EHS is “certainly real” and symptoms can vary widely in their severity. Common symptoms that may occur include skin reactions such as redness, tingling, and burning sensations; fatigue, difficulty concentration, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitations, and digestive disturbances.

People experiencing EHS find they react to low levels of environmental exposures that others may not notice. The exact cause of the reactions is a subject of controversy. Yet the World Health Organization asserts that EHS can be a “disabling problem for the affected individual.”

EHS has no clear diagnostic criteria and a scientific basis to link EHS symptoms to electromagnetic exposure has not yet been established.

ACN Latitudes’ focus on electrosensitivity is a new feature on our site that we look forward to expanding. We welcome articles from readers to add to our current library.
