Triggers for the symptoms can be any EMF exposure, but classically it is a reaction to the pulse modulated fields associated with mobile telephony and Wi-fi. Some individuals will also suffer symptoms from the lower household electrical (ELF) fields.
EHS can progress quickly in some individuals, rendering them incapacitated by their severe symptoms and unable to tolerate even minute exposures to certain frequencies. Unfortunately as very few doctors have been educated regarding the condition and internet sources are often factually inaccurate or subject to bias, it can be very difficult for individuals to receive appropriate support to improve their health. The mainstay of management is to avoid the EMR triggers, but this can prove extremely difficult given the ubiquitous nature of Wi-fi and mobile phone radiation now pervasive in society. As well as creating a general public health decline, this is also raising serious human rights concerns, and unsurprisingly, the condition appears to be rising in response to increased exposures.
