When I was a child I suffered a brain hemorrhage. A metal clip was used during emergency surgery to stop the bleeding from a broken blood vessel that left me blind, paralyzed, and in a coma.
There is no doubt that this surgery saved my life. It also set me up to have EMF Sensitivity.
There’s metal in my head?! Don’t worry, they told me. It’s an inert metal.
By definition, inert metals do not corrode when in contact with oxygenated water. Examples include stainless steel, copper and brass,
The clip in my head, which is about the size of a pinky nail, is titanium.
Don’t worry, they told me. No problem. Hmm.
After discovering that I am sensitive to ultra-low and very low electromagnetic frequencies, I was left with a puzzle.
When did it start and why?
Years of research has left me with a pretty solid hypothesis.
First, the headaches. There’s a saying in Michigan. April showers bring may flowers. Well, they also bring atmospheric EMFs. I remember laying in the dark crying from the pain in my head. The pain was in the same location as the metal clip, where I’d had my surgery. While I didn’t worry that the clip had somehow ruptured, I wondered if the unbearable pain was somehow related. After two years of horrendous debilitating migraines that always started two days before a thunderstorm rolled in and kept up until it moved out again, I asked my neurosurgeon.
“Is it related to the metal in my head?”
“It’s a vascular headache, so yes, there is some type of relationship, but I don’t know why.”
I continued to suffer these migraines for years. The pain was so bad that I often ended up in the emergency room where I was given a shot of demerol/vistaril and sent home with a designated driver.
I hated the way I felt after the narcotic pain medication. It didn’t really work, either. It didn’t stop the pain. It just made it so I could sleep until the storm system moved on. I was so grateful when Imitrex came on the scene. It wasn’t a narcotic so I could drive myself home.
The gremlin effect. Years later, while working at a Fortune 500 technology company, I began to notice that I had an interesting effect on technology. I broke it. Especially laser printers.
The service woman who was responsible for fixing it told me that the printer in my cube broke more than any other in her entire district. When it was removed from my cube it stopped breaking. It was returned to my cube after a shift of seating and sure enough, it began to break again.
I drained batteries constantly, leaving me with numerous watch repair bills. I broke cell phones and computers, sometimes just from touching them. I also drained their batteries faster than what should have been possible.
I once had the production guys ask me to return a network board to the lab so they could examine it. They’d never heard of a board frying simply because someone plugged it in.
I later read in Dr. Dean Radin’s Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena that this wasn’t necessarily unusual and it certainly wasn’t unheard of. In fact, a standing joke suggested the better researchers and scientists had this gremlin effect on equipment.
The Long and Windy Road. Years of research led me to remedies that, for all intensive purposes, have cured me. I am now living 95% symptom free. Because I’m no longer inundated with debilitating symptoms, I am able to focus on the few less severe ones I do experience when around problematic frequencies.
They continue to turn on when I’m around the frequencies and off when I step away from them or the source is turned off. In reality, this is convenient. Especially for testing.
The not so inert metal. The metal in my head may not corrode but it certainly reacts to ultra low and very low electromagnetic frequencies. In fact, it always has. That clip drew those frequencies from the thunderstorms to my head like a magnet, resulting in horrendous migraines.
I no longer live in an area where I am exposed to that weather pattern. However, I do get mild headaches in the same location when a storm front comes through. The pain begins 1 – 2 days before the system arrives and disappears after it’s moved out.
A metal pipe in my head. The pain in my head was actually one of the lesser symptoms, so it wasn’t until recently that I came to realize that when I’m around problematic EMFs, it feels as if a metal pipe is being shoved through my skull.
When I am away from the source of the EMFs that pain disappears instantly. Why was it there to begin with? Because that is the location of the metal clip.
I do not feel this pain when talking on my cell phone. However, if I am in a crowd in a small space and people have Bluetooth running, I will feel that metal pipe through my skull feeling. I leave the area, the pain disappears immediately.
I never experienced any EMF symptoms as a kid. The first I remember being sick is a few years after the surgery when the migraines began in earnest.
1979 – 2014. Technologically speaking, the world is an entirely different place today than it was when I had that life saving surgery. Cell phones and wireless devices weren’t around back them. I know one thing. That inert metal isn’t electromagnetically inert. It acts as a magnet for the problematic frequencies.
Not all metals are a problem. After badly breaking his wrist in a car accident, my father ended up with a metal pin in his wrist. He continuously drains watch batteries, and even wind ups quit working when he wears them. I’m sure it’s related. That being said, however, I’m not sure that people with metal in their bodies are more susceptible to EMF Sensitivity.
I have never conducted research to find out.
What is unique in my situation is that the metal is in my brain. This organ, along with the heart, is electrical. I am convinced that in my case, the clip in my head acts as a magnet to the problematic EMFs. The more important truth, however, is that without it, I would have died.
Where do I go from here? I have no intention of having the metal clip removed. To me the risk isn’t worth it. Due to the remedies I discovered , I am living 95% symptom free. Thanks to the few remaining symptoms I do experience, I am aware when I am being hit by potentially harmful radiation.
The metal clip may attract problematic EMFs like a magnet but it also alerts me to their presence. To me, it’s a good trade off.
