Electromagneticallysensitized people may develop symptoms and health problems, when exposed tocertain types of electromagnetic fields (EMF), known as electricalhypersensitivity (EHS). Over time, the effects may become stronger if suchexposure continues. The Dutch EHS Foundation is committed to finding ways to understandthese phenomena and to doing something about it. This study reports the resultsof a research questionnaire distributed among EHS people before and after thatthey had taken measures to reduce their exposure to EMF. Information requestedincluded (1) the types of symptoms that people reported, and (2) the effects ofEMF reduction strategies on the disappearance of EHS symptoms and improvementof well-being. We assembled a ‘long list’ of curable symptoms based on the datareceived before field management: these included poor quality of sleep,fatigue, bad concentration ability, restlessness, and ‘tight band around head’.We also assembled a ‘short list’ of the five most cited health problemsalleviated after EMF reduction. We also made a ‘short list’ of EMF reductionmethods that proved most effective: these include replacement of Dect phones bycorded phones, reducing use of mobile phone, disconnecting WiFi routers, andreducing PC and TV time. Respondents usually reported more than one symptom. Thereare no EMF reduction measures, which satisfied every individual. We proposethat people may be assigned the ‘status’ of EHS when having suffered from acertain number of health symptoms cited here, which were alleviated by EMFreduction and shielding. We aim to achieve appropriate medical attention forelectro-sensitive people, and help in creating electromagnetically clean livingand working conditions.
