Electrical sensitivity (also known as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity) is a recognised illness in Sweden, and is gradually being more recognised in this country as the network of electromagnetic fields become more impossible to avoid. Many people report health issues resulting from exposure to these fields, varying in intensity from mild to severe.
Modern technology is here to stay, yet none of us know the long-term effects it may have on our bodies. Taking some simple precautions may help you to protect yourself.
What are the symptoms?
The symptoms of electrical sensitivity may include, but are not exclusive to:
- Lethargy and fatigue
- Tingling in the arms and legs
- Anxiety and depression
- Inability to concentrate
- Measure the fields using an easy-to-use meter or monitor. We have a range of suitable products, some available on a rental basis. Record the areas in your home that have the highest levels of ‘electrosmog’
- Reposition your beds and furniture to limit your exposure to these fields.
- Keep in mind which items are used close to the body, such as hair dryers, electric blankets and electrically operated adjustable beds and furniture. Limiting your time spent using these will help reduce your exposure to these fields.
- Try to keep electrical clocks and clock radios at least one metre away from your head. Placing baby alarms at least one metre away from the infant will reduce their exposure to electrical fields.
- Sit as far away as possible from TVs and computer monitors. There are devices available to attach to these that may help neutralise the electrical fields.
We offer a wide range of products to help protect against symptoms of electrostress and electromagnetic hypersensitivity. These include meters and monitors so that you can measure the fields, products for personal protection, products to protect you in your home or office and mobile phone and electronic equipment protection.
