A cousin of mine is a physician, and when I asked him recently what he knew about, or what he had trained, in relation to Electro-hypersensitivity, or EHS, he said was not given any information at all. When pushed a bit further, he said that he had not even heard of the condition, but would likely treat it as some sort of allergy.
This baffled me. In our wireless age, EMFs are affecting us more and more, and increasingly causing noticeable health decline. He’s not to blame though, his medical education has just not caught up with the world as it is. Largely this is the widespread denial and anti-information campaigns by electronics and mobile phone companies.
Most likely, if you consult your primary physician about your EMF exposure or EHS symptoms, he will likely not quite understand or empathize. The best thing you can do is be well informed, and ready and willing to share that knowledge with your physician. I am not an expert, but I do research the best I can all things EMF radiation.
So I encourage you to read through the articles in the EMF Academy Knowledge section. I also encourage you to research other websites, as there is some fantastic information (and some not so good) on the web. Print out or save the articles you feel like will relate best to your medical professional and just take them with you and pass them along. This will most likely help him/her to better understand and treat you’re symptoms.
Worst case, you’ll be spreading valuable information to a community of physicians that desperately needs to be better informed. If you think you suffer from Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, check out my guide EHS Disease – What it is and do you have it.
Resources To Show Your Dr. About EMF Sensitivity and EHS
I’ll list a few of my favorite resources that I found when I wanted to provide some valuable information to my physician cousin:
- This One is amazing, and my absolute favorite resource. It is a letter written by Dr Andrew Tresidder, specifically addressed to YOUR doctor, urging them that EHS and Electrosensitivity are real, as well as describing what they are, common symptoms, treatments, and resources. Print this out and hand it to your doctor.
- This is a fantastic summary of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity written by a Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe
- This is the Australian Medical Association Electrical Sensitivity Guidelines
Although most Doctors and medical professionals do not understand EMF sensitivity, there are some physicians and medical experts out there who do understand EHS and Electrical sensitivity.

Europe is far ahead of the united states when it comes to the understanding and treatment of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, but regardless of where you live, I’ve researched and found facilities that specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with EHS, or ES, symptoms.

I know that there are more medical centers and associations out there that specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of EMF sensitivity, but I listed the ones that I believe to be reputable. I encourage you to do your own research and see what is available near you.
If you do have symptoms of EHS, or just want to make your home a safe more restful place, check out my article on lowering or eliminating EMFs in the bedroom. It has some rock solid advice on simple safety measure you can take to keep your bedroom, and home safer.
