Electrical Sensitivity – What’s Going On In Your Body?

Having been EHS for more than 13 years and finding that modern society is not agreeing with my health I wrote a ‘personal EHS case study'………. but this only looked at my symptoms and the triggers.”

I published Steven Weller's personal EHS case study last year.

Steven goes on to say, “I needed to find out what was going on in my body. The tests I have had over the last 12 months are showing important findings that correlate with research on animals that have been (chronically) exposed to pulsed radio frequencies.”

Initial Findings

Here are Steven's findings from the initial tests he conducted:

“Bilirubin test – This test was important in my case because it started the ball rolling for other more focused tests. I had a higher than normal Total Bilirubin but very low Direct Bilirubin level.

Pyrrole test – is another important test that main stream GP’s are not even aware of. People with EHS and MCS tend to have high Pyrrole levels.

Serotonin test – Mine was high and outside the normal range – I am not on any SSRI medications or other medications that could artificially increase this. I am looking to have a more broader test done to look at all the major neurotransmitters – Serotonin, Dopamine, GABA, Glutamate etc.

Melatonin test – Mine showed that my levels were phase shifted. Highest levels in my case were at 6:00am in the morning rather than at midnight when mine were very low.

Heart monitor test – is useful to pick up arrhythmia or palpitations. I was shown to have bradycardia (I am not an athlete).

Hair analysis test – is useful as a large proportion of people with EHS (and possibly MCS) are deficient in important minerals or have a higher than normal toxic elements present.”

EHS Draft Discussion Paper

Here is an extract from Steven's EHS draft discussion paper.

“What Western Protection Agencies and their cohorts are suggesting:

  • A communicated syndrome – anxiety and concern after reading or hearing something suggesting harm leads to symptom development. Also referred to as a nocebo effect.
  • A psychological induced condition see point above.
  • A possible pre-existing underlying health issue
  • Not proven to be linked to EMR

From Merriam Webster's medical dictionary:

Microwave Sickness: a condition of impaired health reported especially in the Russian medical literature that is characterized by headaches, anxiety, sleep disturbances, fatigue, and difficulty in concentrating and by changes in the cardiovascular and central nervous systems and that is held to be caused by prolonged exposure to low-intensity microwave radiation.”

Complainants have related their symptoms most frequently to exposure to MP base stations (74%) followed by MPs (36%), cordless phones (29%), and power lines (27%) M. Röösli et al. 2004. Of course this ratio may now be significantly different with the rollout of free public WiFi, smart meters being deployed in so many countries around the world, often mandated by governments without public consent.

What at least 50 years of research has found

Recognised effected of even minute levels of microwave radiation have been shown to:

  • Increase Permeability of Blood Brain Barrier and gut, with increased glucose metabolism
  • Open the blood-brain barrier to viruses and toxins
  • Heat head, brain tissue & disrupt brain activity (altered EEG readings)
  • Reverse cell membrane polarity
  • Alter brain waves, alter brain chemistry and altered sleep
  • Increase excitability at neuronal synapses
  • Altered chronobiology leading to stress response
  • Cause memory loss and mental confusion
  • Poor exploration of the local environment, motivation waning
  • Cause headaches and induce extreme fatigue
  • Damage nerves in the scalp
  • Cause blood cells to leak hemoglobin
  • Create joint pain, muscle spasms and tremors
  • Create burning sensation and rash on the skin
  • Induce ringing in the ears, impair sense of smell
  • Precipitate cataracts, retina damage and eye cancer
  • Immune disruption leading to over active, under active, and autoimmune conditions.
  • Reduce the number and efficiency of white blood cells
  • Stimulate asthma by producing histamine in mast cells
  • Cause digestive problems and raise bad cholesterol levels
  • Stress the endocrine system, especially pancreas, thyroid, ovaries, testes
  • Cause Single strand and double strand breaks in cellular DNA and other types of DNA damage
  • Increase in tumorgenesis due to fragility and altered expression of RNA and DNA
  • Oxidative stress
  • Cancer
  • Lead to both male and female infertility
  • Lower levels of night time melatonin; sleep disruption
  • Cause diverse neuropsychiatric changes, including depression
  • Lead to changes to the electrical control of the heart resulting in tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death

What Scientific Research Shows – Supported by Biological tests

EMF exposure impacts the body on many levels including the nervous system, the endocrine system, our genes, our immune system, and the brain. They can affect inter-cell communication within the body resulting in dysregulation of the cellular structure that can be associated with many neurological and behavioural changes, cardiac arrhythmia including atrial fibrillation, altered cell growth, fibromyalgia and Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (AFS).

The common symptoms that people complain of relating to EMF sensitivity range from: headaches, constant and long term fatigue, digestive disorders, sleep disturbance, muscle tightness, memory disorders, metallic taste in the mouth, anxiety, heart palpitations and muscle twitches—many of these symptoms are also typical for Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome sufferers.

Exposure to pulse modulated RF radiation, at a SAR values lower than levels where thermal effects may occur have been shown to affect both gene expression and cell regulatory functions.

The exposure of adult rats to EMR may cause disturbances in monoamine neurotransmitters and this may underlie many of the adverse effects reported after EMR including memory, learning, and stress.

HF-RFR exposure could affect neuronal activity through changes in membrane permeability, cellular excitability and neurotransmitter release. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/739524

  • HF RFR effects levels of monoamines in the body. Monoamines refer to the neurotransmitters dopamine, noradrenaline and serotonin. The precursor to Melatonin is serotonin.
  • Rats exposed to RF exhibited a disruption of circadian rhythms, decreased testosterone levels.
  • Russian research repeatedly show low dose microwaves directly caused hypothalamic damage.
  • Microwaves disrupt electron chain transport in mitochondria of rat brain. (Duke University)
  • Pulsed EMF’s at lower frequencies directly inhibit firing rates of neurons. (UCLA)
  • Leptin resistance and altered hormone levels. Sex steroids, Vitamin D, melatonin, IGF and PRL levels altered.
  • 900 MHz RF exposure changed ACTH levels after 90 days exposure.

A suggested mechanism of harm of RF/EMF has been elucidated by Professor Martin Pall and is tied into the NO/ONOO- cycle. Using calcium channel blockers has been claimed to stop RF/EMF symptoms.

Downstream effects of chronic exposure

Sleep disruption – Health implications

Incidence of poor sleep is higher than ever in history. The problem has developed in humans simultaneously with the proliferation of cellular telecommunication. It was established long ago that proper immune function relies on sufficient quality and duration of sleep. If you don't sleep deeply, for long enough there is insufficient ATP pooling and this results in insufficient night time repair, hormone production, memory consolidation and immune function.”

    Thank you for posting this. My x has been stalking, harrassing and torturing me for over ten years useing radio wave devices from electronics for the evil genious. This gives my doctor something to look at to prove it. Its caused a lot of health problems to myself and my dogs to. Tumors and my skin marbles when it’s bad.

  • Rosemarie said,

    Thank you Lloyd! I shared on some EHS forums Facebook.

  • Marsha said,

    This is a very important paper, thanks. More attention needs to be paid to mechanisms of dehydration however.

  • Dave Thor said,

    Hi everyone
    Thanks for this Interesting and very informative concise article…inspires me to do further investigation.

    I’m going to investigate magnesium as a calcium blocker and try to include that more in my diet through grains/peanuts and leafy vegies…aways suspected that my EHS amd skin rashes were somehow related to blood calcium levels.

  • Tanya said,


    thanks for delving into this issue so deeply. Lots of interesting points.

  • María del mar said,

    Hello Lloyd and Steve,
    thank you very much to both for your work. This is a fantastic paper. Congratulations, Steve. I would like to translate it into spanish and share it again, not without asking for your permission.

    Best wishes.

  • Mick Duran said,

    Hi Lloyd, I was wondering if you did test the “Defendershield” and the “WaveTechnologies LaptopShield Radiation Barriers” ? Are they better than the Harapad ?

    I saw your test with the Harapad; but on the following video, it seems to work better:
    What do you think about it ?

    Thanks for your reply.

  • Rosemarie said,

    I agree with Marsha that the problem with dehydration should be addressed.

  • candy said,

    I am sensitive to both..what can you do to help your self with MCs..that one came first.then ehs..what do we do about the high levels we have with the word that starts with p lloyd

  • SGVH said,

    Looks like an excellent paper. Thanks for the hard work, compiling the research, & for the pdf link:

    One suggestion: Move the “Western Protective Agency” lies from the top of the first page of the paper to the bottom of the very last page-34 as a “P.S.” > A Not Very Important Afterthought, such as:

    P.S.: Oh, & by the way, now that you have considered the tremendous amount of scientific research on this very important global health subject presented above, here’s how the Western Protective Agencies are trying to marginalize & sweep it all under the rug…
    1. …
    2. …
    3. …

    Put the lies at the bottom of the barrell where they belong because “non-believers” who begin to scan your paper will see the WPA lies at the top & will conclude, “Ah, a bunch of crazies just as I thought!” & they will toss it in File-13 (trash can).

    In other words, don’t make it “easy” for them to dismiss the rest of the paper without their even reading it.

    If it were me, I wouldn’t even give the WPA Lies any place in the paper at all. In the newspaper biz it is said that most people will only read the first 1-2 paragraphs & move on to the next article, & even more people only read the headlines, period. So you have to grab their attention with not only a good “headline” but also within the first &/or second paragraph.

    If you prefer to keep the WPA Lies at the top, here’s a headline for you, in that case:
