(A brief overview of how funds will be utilised can be viewed at the bottom of this document)
I am an EHS patient (Electric Hyper Sensitive).This means my neurological system reacts to EMFs (Electric Magnetic Fields) causing havoc with my health. I was 15 when I suddenly commenced having various auto-immune illnesses.Doctors did not know how to diagnose these at first. At 21 I was diagnosed withFibromyalgia.At 22 I lay in bed for 6 months because of the debilitating effects of auto-immune conditions.
Mysteriously I commenced recovering and was fortunate enough to have managed a small video production company for 10 years.
I enjoyed this thoroughly, the work, my employees, and clients. Golden years.
But unfortunately my health once again deteriated, and at 32 I was diagnosed with cancer. Just as I thought I am well, I developed severe EHS. Click here to view a functional MRI case study on EHS patients that view how our brain react to EMFs. Last named case study provides a better understanding of this condition. EHS is much like other conditions where the severity of the condition vary tremendously.Maybe in a similar way than Diabetes type 1 and 2.Essentially, due to our neurological system we are all electrically sensitive.But if exposed to certain conditions we can become Hyper Sensitive.However the causative agents can be a bit more complex than in the case of for instance Diabetes where sugar intake, genetic pre-disposition and trauma play key-roles.
I spoke briefly about some of my experiences with EHS on this 8 min insert: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7fmbLstiDg&feature=youtu.be(Dr Hema made valid contributions to the insert, however, unfortunately it seems she was not aware of above study that can diagnose EHS. There are also several blood tests such as testing the phase 1 - 3 detox enzymes of the liver and kidneys that often test abnormal in patients with EHS. However one understands this condition is not widely understood yet and all info has not reached applicable role-players yet.)
It is unfortunately obvious if one views the clip that I am not well supported right now. I think it is partly because EHS is not well understood, because I was supported through cancer treatment that is more readily recognised.
Furthermore South Africa’s economy has gone through a rather tough time the past few years as can be seen in the international news. This has left citizens rather traumatised and the consequences seemingly is that the ill , elderly and disabled are no longer really supported.
Doctors believe the EHS has now progressed and that there are possibly signs of more auto-immune illnesses such as MS and or Mast Cell disease because my foot has commenced a process of degeneration where it is slowly but surely feeling numb.EHS is often closely related to various auto-immune conditions such asMS and MAst Cell disease.Seeing it is still early days, there are procedures that one can do to try and stop the degeneration from continuing as well as possibly even restore some of my health so I can live a more normal life.
Due to my condition, everything is complex.Even travelling.I cannot travel in public transport, fly nor live in local BnBs. There is simply too much EMFs an I get further neurological damage from this. I can actually not function in these environments and some of the symptoms I get are dementia,petit mal seizures, my skin burns the same as when one lay in the sun for too long among other things. I cannot sleep properly if not shielded with proper shielding material. I am simply in too much pain.
But I came up with a plan! The plan is to put my faraday shielding cage on wheelsEven if I am in hospital I can live in this van because right now they are not equipped and accessible to accept patients such as myself. It is one thing for me to visit the hospital for an hour with my shielded suit, but another thing if I have to sleep over. I have to be in a faraday cage else I have too many complications. This van can be EHS friendly and shielded from outside EMFs as well as inside LFs. All cars are electrical and this makes it close to impossible for EHS patients to travel long distances in them. Thus we are going to convert an old combi into a solar power driven van to overcome this issue.. An example of such a solar panel combi can be seen here:http://www.solarelectricvwbus.com/home.html Currently I am blocked from getting the medical help I need to heal. But this will be like my wheelchair, overcoming my neurological condition in terms of being able to move around to public areas where I need to visit them for prolonged periods. Once I arrive at these areas I wear a special shielding suit that covers me all over, also my head. However, this suit is not strong enough in its shielding abilitiesand only block some of the frequencies, simply because it is made from a material that is meant for clothes. In the solar van we will use far more robust shielding material, that blocks a lot moreEMFs but is not suitable for clothes. Anyway, I do not want to get too technical, in summary, for me to get medical help and get around sufficiently I need the solar RV van. Else I am just trapped and blocked from these services.
The funds will cover:.
- Medical procedures and rehabilitations
- The solar van.
- With sufficient funds I can produce a documentary on my findings during this journey. It provides an unique opportunity for the funder to view how his investment is assisting me in rebuilding a part of my life and health. But more important, EHS is not a well understood condition yet.Having suffered from various conditions I noticed certain similarities in the management as well as prevention of these conditions. A low inflammation diet can for instance help in the management of heart disease, cancer, ms, arthritis and various other auto-immune conditions. Thus I will share some of the experience I gathered over the past 25 years of being ill. This will be an informal natural flow of the documentary , since my life will be filmed. These shifts in lifestyle has greatly assisted me, and is one of the reasons that I still seem so normal though I suffer from various illnesses and conditions. Though one ideally wants to heal from these conditions, it is ultimately also important to manage these conditions whilst making every effort to heal. This is where the choice of lifestyle makes a world of difference. Furthermore I also find the different viewpoints on root causes of illnesses interesting. Some believe 90% is diet, others 70% pathogens, there is the genetic predisposition school of thought, the toxic teeth debate also ascribe 90% of various illnesses to dental work, then there is pollution and over population problems that some support, and several believe it is the thoughts we think and the words we speak that causes illnesses.. Exposing the viewer to some of these viewpoints and specialists, providing more questions than set answers, will hopefully propel the viewer to ask their own unique questions to provide answers in the context of their healing journey where possible. Due to my condition I no longer am able to edit, so I will have to get the help of an editor and a video operator.Ultimately it is my hope this documentary will assist others too. This will overjoy me.
There i s always the possibility that the medical interventions might not make the difference hoped for. But at least then the documentary that helps others move forward has been made. Also the van will still enable me. Some doctors are of opinion if I live in areas that have less EMFs, for instance the countryside, I will be able to function better and live a more normal life. I am sure someone will allow me to live on their farm in my RV van. I am currently part of our SASSA disability scheme, and we get R1 780 p/m - approximately 100$ p/m). On a farm in this solar van I should be fine, but in a city this is almost impossible to live from. Furthermore, because there is much less EMFs I should be able to function more normally, and can maybe even plant a few things.
But ultimately all I want is to be restored back to health to just be the video journalist I used to be.I used to focus on sustainability to ensure a future for children. I also helped NPOs with awareness videos.I want to be this person again. And I hope that with the help you are going to offer me I will be able to heal and be just this.Here is some of the videos I did in the past:
EHSmakes any technological equipment difficult to work with . From kitchen to office.
This has blocked me from my work, income and a basic way of life.
Furthermore one can develop various conditions such as above mentionedFibromyalgia, cancer and so forth, neurological conditions such as MS (view dr. Havas’s 10 minute presentation on MS and EHS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqMCjEs9oxE&feature=youtu.be). Actually the whole body is affected: kidneys, liver, digestion problems and this leadsß to MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity. I suffer from most of these problems.It is a complex condition, but now that doctors can detect it with scans they realise more and more if they can heal the cytotoxicity some of the other brain damage might heal. This is terribly exciting for me, for even though I have lived in a faraday cage for only a few years, it has been 25 years that I have been ill. The idea to possibly heal overwhelms me, and I will be thankful for every single contribution made. Furthermore the stress and trauma experienced as my foot is slowly but surely numbing and no one can tell me why, will finally hopefully find a solution before it gets worse .
