EHS (Electrohypersensitivty) Survey
If you're searching for EMF Protection products, there are typically one of two reasons. Either you've heard of the damage EMF can cause and would like to prevent future harm to your health, or you already are experiencing symptoms. Often, early onset of symptoms at a young age (relatively less EMF exposure compared to the general population) can indicate electrosensitivty. This test will help you better understand your relationship with EMFs and help you determine the level of protection you may need.

What is Electrohypersensitivty?
EHS is characterized by a variety of non-specific symptoms, which afflicted individuals attribute to exposure to EMF. The symptoms most commonly experienced include dermatological symptoms (redness, tingling, and burning sensations) as well as neurasthenic and vegetative symptoms (fatigue, tiredness, concentration difficulties, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitation, and digestive disturbances). The collection of symptoms is not part of any recognized syndrome.
EHS resembles multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), another disorder associated with low-level environmental exposures to chemicals. Both EHS and MCS are characterized by a range of non-specific symptoms that lack apparent toxicological or physiological basis or independent verification. A more general term for sensitivity to environmental factors is Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance (IEI), which originated from a workshop convened by the International Program on Chemical Safety (IPCS) of the WHO in 1996 in Berlin. IEI is a descriptor without any implication of chemical etiology, immunological sensitivity or EMF susceptibility. IEI incorporates a number of disorders sharing similar non-specific medically unexplained symptoms that adversely affect people. However since the term EHS is in common usage it will continue to be used here.
What causes EHS?
Much like food allergies and chemical sensitivities, EHS is a condition that affected individuals are either born with, or develop over time. It is also possible that after a number of years, your sensitivities can change, and your body may become more or less resistant to the effects of EMF. However, electromagnetic radiation - regardless of your resistance to it - is never good for your health. Humans, like any other organism, are not designed to be exposed to massive amounts of radiation on a daily basis. It is recommended that all individuals make an effort to reduce exposure to EMF radiation. The only proven way to reduce your dosage of EMF radiation is to eliminate use of electronic devices (including cell phones, laptops, and TVs), or to purchase EMF Protection products such as the SmartShield Mobile, SmartShield USB, or SmartShield EMF Max Whole Home Protection Unit.
What studies have been done regarding EHS and EMF Exposure?
A number of studies have been conducted where EHS individuals were exposed to EMF similar to those that they attributed to the cause of their symptoms. The aim was to elicit symptoms under controlled laboratory conditions.
The majority of studies indicate that EHS individuals detect and identify EMF with much greater accuracy than unaffected individuals. Many subjects experienced EHS-related symptoms when isolated away from electronic devices, but dosed with the same quantity of EMF radiation. When the dosage of EMF radiation was stopped - or neutralized utilizing negative ionization technology - the affected individuals showed a reduction or elimination of EHS symptoms.
There are also some indications that these symptoms may be further inflamed by pre-existing psychiatric conditions as well as stress reactions. Protecting yourself from EMF radiation is just one of many steps you should take to protect your health. Dirty electricity, negative energies, and other unhealthy factors of modern life should be removed or mitigated using protective products and devices.
Is there a cure?
Like any other allergy or sensitivity, there is no cure for EHS. However, symptoms related to EMF exposure will resolve themselves if the sources of EMF radiation are eliminated or neutralized. The easiest way to resolve your EHS symptoms is simply to stop using all electronic devices. However, that is nearly impossible in our digital world.
Our EHS sensitivity survey recommends the EMF protection solution that may work best for you. Low sensitivity individuals may feel relief simply by neutralizing the most dangerous sources of EMF in your home. This often requires nothing more then the SmartShield Mobile stick-on EMF neutralizers. High-Sensitivity individuals, for example, will require a full suite of EMF protection products, all working together to combat and neutralize the affects of radiation before it reaches your body. Most commonly, highly affected individuals will utilize the SmartShield Max for whole-home protection, and the SmartShield USB to protect them in the car. To provide protection outside of those environments, the SmartShield Pendant and SmartShield Mobile protectors work to further reduce unneutralized exposure to trace amounts.
