The pros and cons of earthing or ‘grounding’. André Fauteux of the MaisonSaine has been gathering opinions on earthing. January 2017

• Dr Andrew Tressider (MB BS MRCGP Cert Med Ed) is a member of the Board of ES-UK and an ES sufferer himself.
He has written an open letter to other doctors/medical practitioners about ES and its symptoms. You might like to print it out and show it to your GP whether he/she is sympathetic and understanding or not; if the former, they will be interested, if the latter it will give you some credibility! Click here for a pdf that you can print.

Managing electrosensitivity  – could oxygen be an answer? Michelle Berriedale Johnson charts her progess in dealing with her electro-sensitivity (including a run down on ES, what it is and how to manage it) and describes the oxygen treatment which appears to have made a crucial difference.

A member of ES-UK has put together a really excellent, comprehensive directory of products and services that measurably reduce the amount of EMF exposure, or enable people to avoid places which have high EMF levels – no pendants or herbs… 04/10 Click here for a downloadable pdf.

Michael Bevington of ES-UK has written a 45 page booklet entitled: ‘ES and EHS – A Summary’. This book is an ideal way to present a well ordered summary of every scientific paper written about ES to friends, family, employers, doctors and medical practitioners, MPs, colleagues and neighbours. It also includes a detailed list of symptoms, existing diagnosis and treatment protocols, historic developments, etc. To reserve a copy please send a cheque or money order for £10 payable to ES-UK to: BM Box ES-UK, London WC1N 3XX, UK

Neuroprotective effect of ginseng against alteration of calcium binding proteins immunoreactivity in the mice hippocampus after radiofrequency exposure. August 2013Hypothesis on how to measure electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Up to now most scientists assume a psychological cause for the suffering of electromagnetic hypersensitive individuals. This paper addresses reasons why most provocation studies could not find any association between EMF exposure and EHS. Simultaneous recordings of heart rate variability, microcirculation and electric skin potentials could make it possible to distinguish “genuine” electromagnetic hypersensitive individuals from those who suffer from other conditions.
