Electrohypersensitivity (EHS)

Electrohypersensitivity (EHS, also called electromagnetic allergy or radiation allergy) is the term for people who are sensitive to electromagnetic radiation. Symptoms range from a burning sensation of the skin to exhaustion and dizziness.

Complaints are often so severe that people can no longer function because of them. However, not everyone is convinced that this hypersensitivity is actually caused by radiation, which often makes the diagnosing difficult. The symptoms develop slowly and can gradually increase in quantity and intensity. The World Health Organization recognizes the existence of EHS, but describes it as an "idiopathic hypersensitivity to environmental factors, attributed to electromagnetic fields. The word "idiopathic" means as much as "without known cause".

Patients suffering from one or more of the symptoms described below do not always feel understood by their GP and/or other conventional doctors, and therefore often feel compelled to visit a doctor in the alternative circuit. Once the diagnosis is made, some patients notice how their complaints decrease right after they have reduced radiation sources around them as much as possible. Others still experience so much trouble that they need to change their lifestyle more radically, and sometimes even have to stop working.
