I don’t understand it so you must be crazy…

While searching for treatments for EMF Sensitivity I was surprised and confused by the number of people, including professionals in the medical, technological, and academic fields who suggested the only treatment needed was psychotherapy.

After all, how could psychotherapy help relieve:

migraines, skin irritations, nausea, difficulty breathing, debilitating fatigue, allergy-like runny nose and burning, water eyes, hearth arrythmia, difficulty sleeping, difficulty concentrating, vertigo, gastro-intestinal disorders, ear, jaw, and tooth pains?

These are just some of the symptoms people with a sensitivity to EMFs experience and trust me when I say they can be so intense that you begin to wonder if you’re slowly dying.

Apparently, because the doctors couldn’t explain it, because no traditional and often pharmaceutical therapies relieved it, and because only 1.5 – 5 percent of the population has it – it must not exist.

Interestingly, they (whoever they are, right?) said the same thing about Fibromylagia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS).

What’s even more interesting is that the symptoms for those conditions are identical to the symptoms for EMF Sensitivity.  They are handled differently, and yet people who suffer from them are usually treated like they have some sort of mental or emotional disorder and are in desperate need of psychotherapy.

Talk about hiding your head in the sand…

I address these issues in my book but for the record I want to reassure those who have these symptoms they are not crazy.  Just because the professionals out there don’t understand something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
