THE STORY OF AN ELECTROSENSITIVE (Emmanuel R., France)
A testimonial from an EHS person illustrated by results of analyzes in two different moments of life. The EHS biomarker has been identified in a context of high electromagnetic fields (domestic and environmental) and strong EHS symptoms.
"Since 2012, I have known deep down that there was something wrong with my daily health. Indeed, I am someone naturally optimistic, determined and joyful, and I started to feel little by little depressed, stressed, constantly tired, with some of the most troubling symptoms...".

Mild EHS symptoms
Contamination to be monitored
Strong EHS symptoms
have an EHS profile?
THE EHS BIOMARKER
explained by the toxSeek scientific committee
What is a biomarker?
A biomarker is an endogenous (produced by our organism) or exogenous (not produced by our organism) indicator that can indicate/confirm a clinical condition such as electrohypersensitivity and/or indicate the severity of a clinical condition.
What is this EHS biomarker used for?
The EHS biomarker allows to make a toxicological diagnosis and/or to predict the appearance of EHS (if present in toxicological analyses spread over time). It is an objective criterion allowing the state of EHS to be asserted with certainty. In other words, it makes it possible to highlight the anatomical substratum of the EHS syndrome by excluding differential diagnoses of psychiatric disorders: in particular cenesthetic hallucinations, schizophrenic delusions in the productive phase, anxiety disorder with somatisation. On the other hand, it may allow an etiological (causal and symptomatic) curative treatment (eviction, chelation...).
This biomarker, being a quantifiable objective parameter, allows the detection of emerging environmental risks. We will be able to act, in a preventive way, on the sources of exposure or pollution (elimination or mitigation) by detecting exposed people and raising awareness among health professionals, the population and politicians.

The toxseek hypothesis
The toxSeek scientific committee has identified a rare metal and rare earth contamination profile
that could be an EHS biomarker.
This contamination was discovered during toxicological analyses of metals in the hair matrix.
Hair provides information on chronic contamination with inorganic pollutants (metals, heavy metals and rare earths)
3 cm of hair allow us to study 3 months of contamination.
EHS people or people suffering from chronic diseases can show a very particular profile:
Presence of metals (rare earths) in large amount and in high concentration (refer to the example of tets results and biomarker at the beginning of the article).
This metal contamination (rare earths) seems to be potentiated by electromagnetic fields (antenna effect).
Metal (rare earths) contamination
Through their magnetic properties, rare earths interact with electromagnetic fields.
(increase in effects and sensitivity)
Appearance of EHS symptoms
Rare earths are metals used in technologies and renewable energies: </blue> flat screens, leds, laptops, mobile phones, batteries, permanent magnets but also in some medicines and MRI contrast products.</blue> Rare earths have special magnetic properties (100 times better than a conventional magnet).
>> These metals are used more and more and are not subject to reprocessing or recycling.
The sources of electromagnetic fields are present in our daily life: (wifi, mobile phone, domestic electricity network...) but also in our environment (mobile phone relay antenna, high and medium voltage lines...). Electromagnetic fields interact with rare earths with high magnetic potential.
>> These electromagnetic fields are constantly increasing.

Why a hair analysis?
The hair matrix is the only useful matrix for chronic toxicity. It allows a contamination study over several months. The toxSeek Metal toxicological analysis is based on a reference method (ICP-MS - Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry) and the results are verified by a medical biologist, doctor in pharmaco-toxicology. Hair samples are prepared (washed and mineralised) in such a way as to exclude any external pollution present on the hair. The laboratory is subject to external quality control (QMEQAS).
As part of your participation in the Biomarker EHS program, a special pricing has been set up: toxSeek Metal analysis - 88 euros VAT included instead of 110 euros - excluding shipping costs for the sampling kit. An email containing all the information will be sent to you at the end of your registration.
