How do you treat ES?

1. The basic test for all sensitiviy to, or intolerance of, environment toxins, is very simple: reduce or eliminate the toxic source, and the impairments or symptoms will be reduced or eliminated. Therefore doctors diagnosing Electrosensitivity include questioning a patient to establish likely exposure occurring during or before the impairments or symptoms.
2. Brain scans can show blood perfusion in different areas of the brain. In people with ES some areas of the brain have changed blood perfusion. See Professor Belpomme's techniques under Science about ES.
3. Heart rate variability patterns relate to ES in some instances. See Dr Havas' studies under Science about ES.
4. Many other objective markers are being researched which appear to relate to ES, such as cortisol levels, lymphocyte tests, microcirculation, and other proteins and neurological markers relating to the environmental bioregulation of the autonomic nervous system.
(a) Some people who show that they are sensitive to electromagnetic radiation by producing the objective reactions listed above (1-4), do not have conscious sensitivity symptoms. Other people, who do experience conscious sensitivity symptoms, do not necessarily show all the above objective markers. This key factor was established in 2002 and has been confirmed since then.
(b) ES reactions are non-linear. This was established in by McCarty et al (2011). Therefore all provocation studies based on the assumption of linearity are flawed. This rules out the hypothesis that ES is a psychological condition. This was also ruled out by the WHO in 2007 when it was stated that ES is "not a known psychological condition".
