Electrohypersensitivity (EHS) is a real physiological condition. EHS is characterized by neurological and immunological symptoms that occur or intensify upon being exposed to either electric fields or both electric & magnetic fields (Electromagnetic Fields - EMF). Having EHS means one can experience recurring immune stress or illness when near active EMF sources and emitters of electomagnetic radiation (EMR). 
EHS symptoms normally diminish with increased distance from these radiation sources but many times require considerable time to vanish completely after exposure. The World Health Organization has identified this collection of triggers and symptoms as "Electrohypersensitivity", also referred to as "Electrosensitivity."
EHS is not recognized as a medical diagnosis in the majority of medical institutions. But EHS has now been accepted as a functional impairment or disability in the country of Sweden and many other nations of Europe are beginning to wake up to the health dangers of electromagnetic radiation.

EHS is a physiological reaction to the presence of Non-Ionizing Radiation - which is the frequencies below the visible light spectrum. Non-Ionizing Radiation was once assumed to be safe, because it doesn't have enough energy to remove electrons from their atoms. Authorities used to only consider the "heating effect" of the non-ionizing radiation harmful to the human body. However, it has now been scientifically proven that while non-ionizing radiation doesn't remove electrons, it still causes DNA damage in the human body by a variety of other processes.

Testimonial of a woman who has experienced first-hand the severe effects of Electrohypersensitivity


Originally, electricity was contained in wires, with the electromagnetic fields radiating out from the wires a little distance. However, with the advent of Smart Meters, Cell Phones, WIFI, Ipads, BlueTooth, Smart Phones, Laptops, and numerous other "wireless" devices, all that electromagnetic radiation has been effectively "dumped" into the very atmosphere. Today, almost every individual on planet earth is exposed around the clock to the EMF radiation that fills restaurants, shopping centers, hospitals, libraries, offices, and homes. Even traveling down the highway can be extremely dangerous because of the exposure from all the Cell Phone Towers planted every few miles. 
The really frightening part - most people don't even realize what is happening to their bodies when they are exposed to this type of radiation! Among many other things, their blood clots into Rouleaux formation and it leads to cancer.

Stages of Electrohypersensitivity
EHS can be summarized into 4 basic steps of progression:
1. Mild EHS - headaches, concentration & memory problems that are experienced while you are working with some type of electronic equipment.

2. Medium EHS - Symptoms last much longer after being exposed to electronic equipment. You will experience similar reactions when you are in the same area of transmission and relay towers and antennae. Your symptoms may require medical care.

3. Severe EHS - You are unable to work full-time; you take frequent sick leaves to cope with the many symptoms.

4. Extreme EHS - You develop acute adverse reactions from electromagnetic pollution, both in outdoor and indoor environments. You have to quit your job and there is a severe curtailment of your freedom. You have to have expensive 
re-engineering done to your home environment or you have to relocate to EMF/EMR-free rural or wilderness areas.

Once you have begun to experience step 1, you will progress through all 4 steps, unless you take steps to protect yourself immediately. This is because this radiation is cumulative and gets worse over time as the body grows more and more sensitive to it.

The symptoms of EHS are really endless, because this radiation effects every part of the human body. Here is a brief non-exhaustive list of symptoms which have been shown to arise in people who develop EHS:
Headaches, (even to the point of intolerability)
Concentration problems
Memory lapses, Brain Fog
Pressure in head, throat and chest
Chest pressure or pain
Heart Flutters or Palpitations
Unsteady balance, dizziness
Altered heart rate
Ringing, Buzzing, Static and/or Itching in the ears
Light, Fitful Sleep & other Sleep disturbances
Excessive tiredness & fatigue during day
Feeling like your catching the flu without actually catching it
Numbness or pain in affected areas
Eye irritation
Skin redness, burning, or tingling
Red skin blotches, eczema
High susceptibility to infection
Anxiety or tension 
Inability to rapidly heal from infections 
Vertigo or Light-headed feeling
Temporary inability to speak coherently
Mood-swings &  Depression
Finger, Arm, Shoulder, and Leg twitching 
Loss of motivation and ability to work 

What devices can you use for detection of Electromagnetic Radiation?
There are numerous meters that are designed for this purpose. At the low end of the price range are simple meters designed to register only a single frequency, or just a few frequencies. Some meters can span lots of frequencies; and then there are some designed to pick up the majority of the frequency spectrum - but those cost thousands of dollars.
Some meters pick up Low Frequencies (LF) and other meters pick up Radio Frequencies (RF) - and some meters are designed to pick up both.
Some meters are omni-directional (they pick up all the signals in the surrounding air) while other meters are directional (they pick up the signal when pointed at the source).
Omni-directional meters are good for figuring out if you are in a radiation area or if there are devices turned on somewhere around you, but they do not easily pinpoint the source of the signal.
Directional meters are great for pinpointing the source of the signal, but don't necessarily work well for alerting you to the presence of surrounding radiation.
In other words, both types of meters are good - for their specific function.

We cannot personally recommend many of the meters on the market - just because, we have not had any experience with them - but that isn't to say they are good or bad - we just don't know anything about them. We have heard of various meters such as the Trifield Meter & the Hf35c Rf Analyze Meter
 We also have a friend who uses the Acoustimeter EMF Meter and seems to like it.
However we can only talk about the one that we have used, and that is the Cornet. 
This meter can be purchased online in many places (such as Amazon) but when we were shopping for one the cheapest site we found that sells them is radmeters.com which is based out of Israel and ships free worldwide (There may be a cheaper place now, I don't know).
The Cornet meter is an omnidirectional electromagnetic field strength measurement device that can measure both low frequency in the 50Hz to 10KHz range and high frequency in the 100MHz to 8GHz range.
It will pick up signals from mobile phone base stations, wireless LAN (Wi-Fi), smart meters, cellular/cordless phones, microwave ovens, computers, tablets, etc.
It also has a sound setting which can be turned on so that the meter will make sound when it picks up a signal.
It is compact and can easily fit in a shirt pocket.
In some cases, you can even locate the source with it, because the reading gets higher the closer to the source you get (So, for example, if you are picking up a signal from someone's cell phone, if you walk around the room watching the meter, the signal will climb as you get closer to the person with the cell phone)
What would probably be good to do (if you have money for it) is to get both a directional meter and an omnidirectional meter - that way, you can both identify all the signals around you, and then use the directional one to track them down to the separate sources.
What things can you use for protection from Electromagnetic Radiation?
 There are many scams & gimmicks out there, that purport to block the radiation. Before buying anything, make sure you do your homework and research - don't fall for false claims.
There are companies that sell "stickers" that you can stick on your phone that are supposed to cut the radiation - after all, most people don't want to bother with radiation health effects - they just want to enjoy their gadgets and be left alone, so they look for a "quick fix" to the problem.
But if it is a "sticker" - we consider it a scam!
For one thing, it is the "radiation" that makes a cell phone work - so if the sticker actually cut the radiation, the cell phone would not work! Yet their claims say that they cut the radiation without affecting the operation of the phone.
For another thing, we have personally tested the "stickers" with a meter - and they don't cut the signal at all (and in some cases, the metallic stickers actually RAISED the level of radiation coming from the phone.

There are also no "magic pills" that you can take or any other "quick fix".

EMF radiation is dangerous to human health, and should be avoided wherever possible! But sometimes, it is almost impossible to avoid (unless you move to the wilderness and become a hermit).
The next best thing, is to limit your exposure as much as possible (use corded phones, fiber-optics, etc.)
If you have to go into an area that is full of radiation signals, there are some things that you can do to minimize exposure.
There are certain fabrics which are designed to block electromagnetic radiation. You can buy clothing made from these types of cloth or just buy the cloth and make your own clothes from it.
One thing we have found that really helps, is to line a hat with these materials and that helps to shield your brain (the most vital organ).
We have family members and friends who cannot go into town without getting a pounding headache or from the wireless radiation there - making it basically impossible to function while in town. But when we began wearing hats with shielding material in it, it greatly reduced the incidence of headache.

You can search the internet, there are numerous sites that sell these types of fabric. 
The site we have used before is lessemf.com they seem to have a large selection. 

 The tan baseball cap in the front can be purchased prelined.  It is lined with a material called Staticot. It is made of polyester, cotton and stainless steel. https://www.lessemf.com/personal.html#210  This is what we used to line the black hat  and the straw looking hat above it.   If you have minimal sewing skills you can just buy a hat you like and line it yourself.  https://www.lessemf.com/fabric1.html#1232

A friend made the feminine jean cap for us.  It it lined with a material called Hertzcloth. We like it especially because it is made of pure cotton and stainless steel fibers and so is more breathable than the polyester fabric.   https://www.lessemf.com/fabric2.html#1216

We also have tested  the NATURELL material  It is a translucent, unbleached ecological cotton fabric.  We just fashioned a simple "cocoon" that a passenger could put over them while traveling.  Although the cocoon shape is very impracticle  (it just used a lot less cloth) it does a very good job of blocking the signals and protecting its user.

Just a note of caution -- when using protective fabrics make sure to close off all openings well so that signals cannot get inside, because what keeps the signals out will also hold them in if signals get inside.
