Upstream Factors Leading to Electrosensitivity (EHS)


Insights from Zach Bush, MD

According to Dr. Bush:

  • Soil deficiencies due to agricultural and farming practices have led to significant bacterial loss—and bacterial communications loss—in our bodies-including loss of both bacterial species and abundance.
  • This has contributed to a degradation of the extracellular matrix and communication between cells.
  • Further breakdown of ‘tight junctions’ between cells has occurred from the use of the herbicide glyphosate, heavy metal exposures, and EMFs, leading to greatly increased biological vulnerability and to most if not all of the chronic illnesses of our time.
  • EHS sensitivity is typically preceded by autoimmunity, caused by the above.
  • Repairing the extracellular matrix and bacterial communication between cells can lead to being less prone to resonance with external electromagnetic fields.
  • The process of repair and rebuilding resilience starts with:

1) healing the extracellular matrix with ‘Restore’, a mineral supplement replenishing key molecules no longer in our soil and food,

2) avoiding foods grown with the herbicide glyphosate (Roundup and other brands), or use on lawns and in gardens, and

3) minimizing exposures to electromagnetic fields and other man-made disruptors of biology, like heavy metals.

  • Repairing the extracellular matrix takes time but has been shown to lessen electrosensitivity symptoms in clinical settings. Bush believes it would be difficult to reverse electrosensitivity once this process has begun without repairing the extracellular matrix.
  • Restore supports the immune system; strengthens the “firewall” of the gut lining; re-establishes our internal “filtering” system – keeps stuff in the gut and out of the bloodstream; promotes a healthy gut and thus a diversity of healthy gut bacteria; is an ancient soil-derived complex that provides a framework for bacterial communication and helps us manage exposure to our modern, chemical environment and food supply.
  • Manhattan Neighbors for Safer Telecommunications recommends studying the work of Dr. Bush and his colleagues in Virginia. This bigger picture, ecosystem view of human vulnerability to illness and disease, including EHS, offers new promise for healing.
