Nutrients on treatment of electromagnetic sensitivity

(Presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, November 8, 1998) ABSTRACT
The electromagnetically sensitive person is often anemic with high cholesterol and high
glucose and low blood pressure. Malnutrition commonly occurs and adversely affects the
quality of life, working ability and survival. It is caused by decreased food intake,
radiation and enteritis with abdominal pain and frequent diarrhea. As a result there is
malabsorption and impaired metabolism. Russian physicians had positive results with
intravenous injections of 40% glucose, 5% ascorbic acid and ginseng. Chinese physicians
suggest the herbs Genoderma and Krestin to enhance the recover of cellular
immunocompetence. Neurological symptoms include profuse sweating, depression, fine
tremor of the hands and inability to concentrate. Rea’s double blind laboratory
provocation study documented that hypersensitive persons are able to identify weak
fields. Frequencies used range from 0.l Hz to 5 MHz.2
Electromagnetic sensitivity (ES) is a progressive disabling disease associated with
exposure to electronic equipment. While researchers have been aware of this disease for
more than two decades (Dodge, 1970), ES has received little attention from the scientific
community. It has many names: electrical sensitivity, electrical-hypersensitivity,
electrically injured, electrical intolerance, electric allergy and electromagnetic sensitivity.
Several million people all over the world suffer from ES. Some people with severe ES are
unable to work. Compounding the medical problems is the uncertainty as to whether the
medical profession will recognize their illness, whether disability boards will award their
claims, whether their health insurance will pay for their treatment, and whether their
employers will provide an atmosphere in which they may continue to work.
Electrical sensitivity is usually accompanied by chemical sensitivity. Electrically
sensitive people react to computers, TV’s, stereos, VCRs, fluorescent lights, telephones,
electronic security systems, electric tools, electric sewing machines, electric heaters and
electric trains. Electromagnetically sensitive people are usually sensitive to perfumes,
pesticides, solvents, cleaning fluids, petrochemical products, diesel fumes and
formaldehyde. They react to airborne particles and certain foods. Electromagnetic
sensitivity to many chemicals and to many sources of electromagnetic fields.

In the 1980’s people suffering from the electromagnetic sensitivity had skin and nervous
system symptoms. Electromagnetically sensitive sufferers most commonly complained
about skin problems including red face, erythema, and dermatitis with blisters. In 1989,
Dr. Bent Knave reported that the symptoms as “nausea, headache, rash and jitteriness are
among the first symptoms to appear.” In 1994, Dr, Knave’s reported further the
symptoms from the nervous system, sex organs, upper respiratory tract, and
gastrointestinal tract. Symptoms from the nervous system include headaches, dizziness,
heart palpitations, profuse sweating, depression and memory difficulties. The prognosis
varies with the type of symptoms. Symptoms of the nervous system generally persist
longer than skin symptoms. Dr. William Rea (1991), in a double blind laboratory study,
documented electromagenetic sensitivity and the existence of neurological symptoms. Dr.
Knave referred to Dr. Rea’s laboratory study in 1995 at the 2nd Electromagnetic
Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.

• Double blind study had 21 active challenges and 5 false challenges
• Magnetic fields were from 0.1 Hz to 5 MHz
• 100 ES patients were blindfolded and seated in chairs exposed to electromagnetic fields
generated from a coil
• Fields were 350 nT at the patient’s knees and 70 nT at their hands
• 25 (20%) reported intense symptoms
• 16 (64%) reported painful reactions
• Frequencies causing the most painful reactions were 1, 2.5, 5, 10, 20 Hz and 10kHz
• Some ES patients were sensitive to testing devices (Iriscorder) and were excluded
SYMPTOMS RELATED TO EMF EXPOSURE: Neurological: tingling, sleepiness, headaches, dizziness, loss of consciousness Musculoskeletal: pain, spasms, vibration Respiratory: pressure in ears, tooth pain, tightness in chest, shortness of breath Cardiovascular: palpitation, flushing, tachycardia, edema Gastrointestinal: belching, nausea Ocular: burning Dermal: itching, burning, prickly pain Phase II — Single-blind Challenge of 100 Patients Rea, W, et al.

The electronically sensitive person is often anemic with high cholesterol and high glucose
and blood pressure.
The patient history, the physical exam and laboratory tests are:
Relate the symptoms to EMF exposure: acute, delayed, chronic • Recent eye problems, pressure behind the eyes, floaters, difficulty focusing, deteriorating vision, eye aches • Dental problems, especially broken fillings • Dryness of the lips, mouth, skin or eyes • Puffy lips • Swollen or sore throat • Sinusitis, bronchitis, headaches • Ear aches/ringing in the ears • “Burning” in any part of the body: chest, eyes, ears, testicle • Pressure or pain in the chest • Insomnia • Dizziness • Nausea, loss of appetite • Pelvic discomfort/pain in the testicles or ovaries • Paresthesia • Muscle spasms, pain in the soles of the feet, pain in the legs, muscle, joint, or abdominal pain, especially pain that moves around the body • “Electrical currents” in any part of the body • Sweating • Itchy systemic rash • Spontaneous nosebleeds and gum bleeds • Frequent urination • Craving for carbohydrates Table 5
Look for: • Skin rash • Enlargement or tenderness of thyroid • Blood pressure higher than usual • Shortness of breath (may look like an anxiety attack) • Wheezing • Lungs not clear • Increase in the size of heart • Liver tenderness • General hypersensitivity • Any elevation of body temperature • Sinus pain/drainage • Deterioration of the teeth/pain in the teeth with metallic fillings Neurological: • Tremors, especially of eyelids and hands • Change in visual acuity • Increased sensitivity to vibration • Increased tendon reflexes of the upper or lower extremities • Decreased abdominal reflexes • General muscle weakness Mental: • Agitation • Fatigue • Impaired short or long term memory Blood May Show: • Abnormal blood sugar curve • Elevated blood histamine • Elevated serum protein and globulin • Lower albumin/globulin ratio • Increase in cholesterol and beta-lipoprotein • Leukopenia or thrombocytopenia. Or a change in leucocytes (increase or decrease) or immunoglobulins for that patient, or • IGG subclasses abnormal • Signs of autoimmunity • Altered serum lactic acid • Altered oxygen content or pH of the blood • Increased copper or zinc in the urine • Decreased red blood cell copper • Change in appearance of red blood cells (rouleax formation, etc.) • Increased thyroid activity • Increased adrenal activity EKG • Lengthening of the intrauricular and intraventricular conduction. Decrease in amplitude of the R and T waves. Any arrythmias. EEG • Seizure activity. Abnormal excitation. Malnutrition commonly occurs and adversely affects the quality of life, working ability and survival. It is caused by decreased food intake, radiation enteritis with abdominal pain and frequent diarrhea. As a result, there is malabsorption and impaired metabolism. Russian physicians had positive results with intravenous injections of 40% glucose, 5% ascorbic acid and ginseng. Macrobiotic authorities often recommend a diet of 60-70% of whole grain cereals, 3-5% (1-3 cups) of miso soup with vegetables and seaweed, 20% cooked vegetables, 5-10% beans and seaweed, Sea vegetables contain sodium alginate which binds heavy metals in the intestine and converts them into insoluable salts which can be excreted from the body. Chinese physicians suggest the herbs Genoderma and Krestin to enhance the recovery of cellular immunocompetence, Genoderma is more effective than Krestin. Gynostema Pentaphyllum (32 mg/kg) accelerates the recovery of leukocyte counts and releases the inhibitor of the response of sleenic cells to mitogens. Gynostemma has both radioprotecive and radio-therapeutic effects. Jean-Shen-Yang-Tang has radio-therapeutic effects: It enhances the recovery of decreased cellular immunocompetence and it augments the function of hemocytopoietic organs through stimulating the reticuloendothelial system. Avoid exposure to: Computers, TVs, VCRs, all electronic equipment sunlight, and synthetic fabrics Use cotton, silk or wool clothing Treatment of excessive intestinal candida • use yogurt, buttermilk and kefir in the diet • antifungals may be needed Oral antioxidants and herbs • Vitamins A, E, C. selenium, cystein, glutamine Injectable nutrients required if severe malabsorption exists • Rea, 1991 has good results over a long period of time • Kapitenko, 1965: IV 40% glucose, 5% ascorbic acid solution, ginseng Avoid salted, processed food and hydrogenated fat If chronic radiation enteritis: limit fat, fiber and lactose to reduce diarrhea Large oral doses of vitamins help correct vitamin deficiency. Supplementing the vitamins A (25,000 IU), C (2,000-3,000) mg daily plus bioflavonoids and rutin, E (400 IU up to 800 IU) and the trace minerals, especially selenium (200 mg daily), can inhibit the promotion of free radicals. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is natural in barley grass, very young broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, wheat grass and most green plants. This antioxidant aids in the body’s utilization of zinc, copper and manganese. If the SOD supplement is in the pill form, it must be enteric coated. Exposure to radiation pollution is destructive to vitamins A, C, E, K and several B vitamins, and essential fatty acids. Both vitamin A and beta-carotene are absorbed more readily when optimal amounts, of B-complex, vitamins C, D and E, and zinc are present in the diet. Intestinal candida should be resolved if excessive. Yogurt, buttermilk and kefir are recommended, since they contain microorganisms that protect the gastrointestinal tract. Also recommended are calcium, magnesium, beta-carotene and the amino acids glutamine and cysteine. CONCLUSION
Dodge described electromagnetic sensitivity in l97l3 and indicated that Russian
physicians have also described the illness as “microwave sickness.4” To date, this illness
has not been recognized for insurance and workers’ compensation claims. The worldwide
introduction of computers makes it urgent that this disabling disorder be given
widespread attention by the medical community, diagnostic criteria established and
treatment protocols developed. Findings are based on my investigation of the scientific
literature, the results published in my books, Computer Health Hazards. v.1 & v. 2. 1990
and 19935-6, and computer Antenna, Cellular Telephone and Power Lines Health
