➤ By Liz Oakes

Learn about the EHS meaning and symptomsEHS is a health issue related to reactions to EMF's which stands for electromagnetic fields.

There are quite a few powerful crystals for EMF protection, and some of these stones are featured in this article.

This health problem is commonly called electrical hypersensitivity or EHS, microwave sickness as well as electrical sensitivity or electromagnetic sensitivity.

I quickly realized that it was necessary to find ways to deal with the electromagnetic smog coming from devices I was using.

As I use crystals as much as possible to assist any type of health problem, it made sense to discover the top crystal EMF shields that can help you if you suffer from microwave sickness. is reader-supported.

EHS Meaning And Symptoms: What Are EMF's?

Interesting Fact: As part of my research I discovered that EHS is a problem that is becoming a lot more common, and whether you actually have this health issue or not, it is beneficial to educate yourself.

The meaning of the term EMF comes from the two words 'electromagnetic fields'.

EMF's or electromagnetic fields can be found in many places and some are strong EMF fields and others are very weak. 

It is now common for most people to be surrounded by large amounts of EMF smog and most people have increased exposure both at home and in their workplaces.

EHS Meaning And Symptoms: Harmful Effects Of EMFs

Many homes have smart meters, and many public buildings now have wi-fi which can emit high electromagnetic frequencies.

Electromagnetic or EMF radiation is emitted by many devices, but in particular cell phones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers and wi-fi routers as well microwave ovens and many of the newer TV's.

Electrical hypersensitivity or EHS is also known as microwave sickness.

Most people with electrical hypersensitivity or EHS are not only affected by radio frequency radiation, but also are made sick by electrical fields (EF).

EF from electrical devices as well as from magnetic fields (MF) which are emitted by power lines can cause health problems for many people.

Many household appliances emit high EF and MF especially computers, TV's, fans and air-conditioning units.

This means that the overall load on your body can at times be very high when it is all combined.

I have taken an interest in this as I became electrically hypersensitive some years ago, so I researched the meaning of the problem.

In addition I researched the EHS symptoms as I wanted to find out what was now causing my health problems.

I also looked into the best EMF protection crystals and there is an in-depth article on the subject.

Increased Exposure To EMF's

In the modern world we live in, the number of devices continues to grow, so of course the harmful effects of emfs also has increased and microwave illness has increased.

It is now common for most people to be surrounded by large amounts of emf smog, and have increased exposure both at home and in their workplaces.

It is now quite common to hear about the danger of using mobile phones next to your head.

Most people are now aware of this and have changed the way they use their cell phones, making sure they use a headphone instead of holding it to the ear.

Another source of EMF's that is now getting more attention are the large number of phone towers popping up all over the place.

Of particular concern the 5G towers that are being or have been installed in many areas and the way they cause microwave illness is also worrying.

In addition to this article there is an in-depth guide listing the top EMF protection crystals with pictures of the various stones you can use.

There are a number of EMF protection crystals that are highly beneficial to either mitigate EMFs, eliminate or reduce the level of electromagnetic smog that may be impacting you.

There are quite a few stones that are known to help the body to naturally heal the effects of electrical sensitivity, as well as quite a few that will help to block EMF's.

Some are well known crystals that are useful to keep near your devices, such as Black Tourmaline. You may also find that these crystals are highly beneficial when kept on the body.

EHS Meaning And Symptoms Of Electromagnetic Sensitivity

It can be difficult to be sure if your health problems are related to being ungrounded, as some of the symptoms of electromagnetic stress are also the same as those from being ungrounded.

There are quite a few symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity and some indicators of this health problem are also on my list of symptoms of being ungrounded.

There are a number of common symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity, and some people experience all or just some of these health issues.

Let's start by looking at some of the EHS symptoms that are also on the list of symptoms of being ungrounded.

  • Dizziness, feeling spaced out, light headed or a floaty feeling

Dizziness is a very common symptom of EHS too.

EHS Meaning And Symptoms: Learn Symptoms Of EHS

It is important to know both the EHS meaning and the symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity.

There are also a number of symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity that are not related to being ungrounded.

These are related to the effects of electromagnetic fields, and can be helped by using EMF protection crystals.

Some of the worst EHS symptoms include:

  • Irritated skin that feels like its burning
  • Pain in the forehead between the eyes, also known as the third eye.
  • Severe headaches that come on when you are near towers or devices emitting electromagnetic radiation.
  • Ringing in the ears especially at night
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness, see above.
  • Trouble thinking clearly

Other issues that affect some people but not all. These symptoms may come and go according the the levels of EMF include: 

  • Pain in the solar plexus (area of stomach between navel and heart)
  • Loss of bladder sensation and frequency of urination.

EHS Meaning And Symptoms

It is highly beneficial to use EMF protection crystals but in addition to working out the best ways to use these powerful crystals check out the ideas below to help you to feel better.

Here are some of the ideas that are commonly suggested that help to avert electrical sensitivity and if you already have some symptoms may help to prevent it getting worse.

The first thing to do is to start by putting together a plan of action to lower your risk and work towards creating a safer home environment.

Ideas To Mitigate, Avert Or Fend Off Electromagnetic Sensitivity

Do you use a wifi router? If you already have symptoms, it may be beneficial to turn off the wifi on your router and connect it to your computer or laptop using a cable.

Also turn your router off at night. Even if you do not have electrical sensitivity, make sure you turn off your wi-fi at night while you are sleeping.

It's easy to do using an automatic switching device on the power point (most hardware stores have these) so you don't have to remember.

Do not sleep with your phone in your bedroom, and if possible either turn it off or turn it onto airplane mode, to prevent it from continuously broadcasting all the time.

If you do choose to use a mobile, you can get Shungite plates to put on your phone to help you.

It's also of value to make sure that you remove electronic devices from your bedroom, such as electric clocks.

If that isn't possible, move them as far as possible away from your bed.

EHS Meaning And Symptoms: Device Fitted To My Powerbox

I have devices from Geovital fitted to the power box in my home that cut the power on the light and power circuits when the last device is turned off

So I don't have power running in the bedroom while I sleep.

The potential effects of 5G technology has been looked at by many scientists and EMF specialists and they have found that the frequent exposure to the EMF's from them is harmful to our overall health.

Once I heard that 5G was being added to the phone towers in my area by the cellular networks, I had two rooms in my house painted with EMF blocking paint.

I also have blocking curtains on the windows, made from Naturelle fabric, to prevent EMF's entering the rooms.

A good nights sleep is very important to aid electromagnetic hypersensitivity, so this has been highly beneficial as I sleep much better since this has been done. 

If you need more help, I recently found a website that may benefit you as it has quite a few tips for managing sensitivity to EMF's
