QHow can flower essence therapy help those of us with sensitivity to electromagnetic fields?

November 10, 2001


Electromagnetic sensitivity is truly an illness of our time. Some practitioners have likened it to a new "miasma," or underlying illness that is endemic to our entire culture. All of us are affected in one way or another, but those who are more vulnerable can display extreme symptoms such as fatigue, allergies and chemical sensitivities. Certainly, we must keep in mind that just in the last century human beings have drastically altered the conditions for living on our planet. For many millennia we have evolved with and through the life body of the earth. Now, in just a few short decades all of us are subjected to a constant bombardment of electromagnetic frequencies through the use of computers, myriad modern appliances, and air travel. As well, the places where we live and work are often situated under or near high voltage electrical lines. Unfortunately, we have not done sufficient research to completely document all the ill-effects generated from electromagnetic frequencies. Our medical and health priorities will need to change drastically to allow full investigation of this health issue.

Meanwhile many flower essence therapists who have ways of testing and assessing the energetic integrity of the body, have definitely found positive benefits with the use of flower essences. Our research indicates that the singe most important remedy is Yarrow Special Formula. This remedy does not "cure" electromagnetic sensitivity, but rather it helps the etheric body form a stronger shield of defense against such assaults. The remedy should be taken on a fairly frequent basis. Many people also report that they "wear" a small bottle of the remedy - or apply it to known points of sensitivity, such as the crown of the head and the point between both eyes. The positive benefits of Yarrow Special Formula were also confirmed in a double blind placebo study, which demonstrated the efficacy of Yarrow Special Formula to environmental stress such as fluorescent lights.

In addition to Yarrow Special Formula other essences which help maintain stability and a healthy immune response are recommended. These include Echinacea and Arnica flower essences (both included in the Yarrow Special Formula) and also St. John's Wort, Fireweed, Garlic, Indian Pink, Morning Glory, Penstemon, and Red Clover.

Dr. Kyra Mesich, author of The Sensitive Person's Survival Guide, has done important work using flower essences for emotional and psychic sensitivity, as well as environmental sensitivity. See our article on her work. We have also posted an interview with Gayle Eversole, in which she describes a dramatic experience of using Yarrow Special Formula for exposure to diesel fumes.

It is also important to note that flower essence therapy should not be considered the only approach in dealing with electromagnetic sensitivity. Lifestyle factors need careful examination and major stressors which trigger the sensitivity will need to be addressed - especially during the recovery period. Nutritional programs which keep the blood clean and the immune system strong need to be examined, as well as supplementary herbs and vitamins for the same purpose. Many such people need regular body work from skilled practitioners who are trained to locate and address areas in the body that are vulnerable to stress and that leak etheric energy.
