Researchers are finding a link between Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS) and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS). Lucinda Grant, director of the US support group known as Electrical Sensitivity Network, and author of two books on electromagnetic sensitivity, says people suffering from one of these diseases often suffer from the other.
Why the correlation between EHS and MCS? The link is the nervous system. This is a primary site impacted by both chemicals and electromagnetic fields. These two diseases also share many of the same symptoms, including but not limited to:
- Joint and muscle pain
- Mood swings and irritability
- Sleep disturbances
Not too long ago, doctors were skeptical about Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. So called “hysterical housewives” were referred for psychiatric help. Today MCS is becoming more accepted as a genuine medical diagnosis.
But there’s still a lot of skepticism in the medical fields about the validity of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome. People suffering from EMF exposure are thought to be hypochondriacs, and some of them are shuffled from doctor to doctor with the notion that their symptoms are all in their minds.
People who suffer from other diseases, like chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia, also suffer from Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity and may not know it. EHS affects the immune system—so it can complicate and contribute to almost any other disease. If our immune system is struggling because it’s constantly trying to protect our body from electromagnetic radiation, it cannot attend to fighting problems caused by other environmental toxins (like chemicals) or internal ones caused by pathogens.
Both Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity are difficult to live with. In today’s worldit’s difficult to go out in public at all, without getting sickened by exposure to chemicals and EMFs.
For chemical sensitivity, there are now many companies that offer natural, “green” products for household use. You can at least keep your own home fairly free of chemicals. You can also stick to natural fibers in clothing and bedding, and carry your own soap with you when you plan to use public restrooms.
