SENSITIVE to the beam of a cell tower near them, it hurst Heike Keuser's whole body. So much so that she hides. A visit to the dead zone behind the metal curtains
OF MIRJAM SCHMITT
Oberelz lies in a valley surrounded by hills and forest in the Eifel. Just 120 people live here. No cars go, before the sixties houses plastic chairs adorn the front yard. The cell phone reception is weak in Oberelz - but that is exactly why Heike Keuser moved here in January.
The petite 44-year-old sitting next to her husband at the dining room table and looks at a gray wall that surrounds her patio. The front door she has draped with a white curtain. "The neighbor has a cordless phone," she explains, "I can feel the radiation in the house. The curtain keeps them off to some extent, because there are metal threads woven."
Heike Keuser shields itself from the world. It holds its radiation is not more.
For 15 years, she suffers from multiple sclerosis. She is a healer, but it lacks a long time to work the power in their hands. It is not just the disease, which severely limits their life so. There are also mobile networks and Wi-Fi router. For eight years, their bodies react on it - to high-frequency electromagnetic radiation.
Everything is numb and cold
In Monreal, the former residence of the Keuser - about ten miles away - had all started: When the family is a cordless phone purchased, Heike Keuser was suddenly awake for nights on end, had raced pain in arms and legs, their hearts. More and more they got outside the house pain. "At some point I realized that it had something to do with cell phones when I'm worse off," she recalls. She began to plan their day so that she could handle radiation sources. But the more wireless and mobile phones spread, the greater were their pain.
"The beat is like a blunt object and continuously in very, very short intervals against my nerves," says Heike Keuser and thinks for a moment. You want to describe everything as accurately as possible. She knows that what she feels, sounds unbelievable to others. "It never stops," says Keuser, "Everything is numb and cold. I feel like I'm tied up, the trunk, chest, limbs. Convulse the muscles, the force decreases."
That what feels Keuser, has nothing really to do with electro-smog is controversial: While describe themselves according to the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS), about 6 percent of Germans as "electro-sensitive" - the victims complain mostly about headaches or insomnia, when they to be in the vicinity of mobile phones and wireless networks. However, one study has examined the BfS 2002-2008, the health effects of mobile and wireless radiation. Result: "According to current scientific knowledge, no adverse health effects through the high-frequency radiation of mobile phones to be feared, if the limits are met," says Anja Schulte-Lutz, spokeswoman for the BfS.
Heike Keuser still feel the rays. Outside, the sun shines, but does not penetrate Keuser even made it to their terrace. The curtains make the dim dining room. Fearing rays Keuser holds almost exclusively on the house. Nevertheless, their view is lively, dark eyes wander around constantly. When she speaks, she looks at you intently.
In September 2008, it suddenly went Keuser worse. With a meter, they noted, and her husband, that the mobile phone mast was fitted on the edge of the village with an additional frequency. A call to the operating company confirmed: in addition to D1 was added with a second mobile operator O2. Heike Keuser began to stay with friends.
Ulrich Frick for the case is clear: how are psychosomatic pain of Keuser. Frick is Professor of Public Health at the University of Applied Sciences Carinthia and was involved in the study commissioned by the BfS. "A relationship between subjectively experienced electrical sensitivity and electromagnetic fields, such as through mobile phones, can be still unable to prove," he explains.
"Sometimes I have asked myself: Can I be the all-or spider?" Says Keuser. Friends and acquaintances doubted. Some went so far as to test them. "They have secretly turned on their cell phones and waited to see if what I say," says Keuser. She smiles bitterly. At first she tried to endure the pain - she did not dare to complain. "In the meantime I ask the people immediately, turn off their cell phones again. Otherwise, no one ever believes me."
The heart beats faster
With the accusation that it's all just fancy, Heike Keuser has to fight again. But there are also Lebrecht von Klitzing. The environmental physicist Heike Keuser could confirm the pain. He is chief of the institute for environmental measurements in physical Wiesenthal, researching there for electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Von Klitzing, a measurement method has been developed which should test the effects of radiation on humans. He sets out electrical sensitivity to radiation, without knowing when exactly that happened. It measures among other things, how that changes their heartbeat. "The heart rate increased significantly by Heike Keuser under radiation," he says. He has also recorded with her spasms, cramping so states of the muscular system to the skin surface. "Especially people with medical conditions likely to suffer from ailments due to radiation, such as mobile telephony," explains von Klitzing. Through the pre-existing conditions they are more sensitive to pain and reacted to things that do not perceive others.
Frick questioned studies like those of Lebrecht von Klitzing. You are not meaningful, changes such as increased heart rate could result from all kinds of things. He recommends those affected to participate in so-called cognitive coping training - a type of behavioral therapy - to better cope with the symptoms.
Metal plates on the house
Behavioral therapies Keuser holds nothing. She is annoyed about such a proposal would not be labeled as crazy. She wants you to their illness, electrosensitivity accepted.
"Nobody voluntarily lives that way," she says and looks around inside, into the dim room. In Oberelz Heike Keuser can sleep through again though, but it does not lead a normal life. At parents' evenings is the father. Family celebrations? Only when all the cell phones off, unplug the WLAN. Heike Keuser cities are taboo for her family, she never visited. To leave is not to think. "That hurts already, especially as it affects the children," she says and sighs.
The move to Oberelz was not for the son and daughter Keuser easy. They sold their house in Monreal, the children went to school, the friends were there.
Now the Keuser there to build an old house. Rainer Keuser is an architect and his wife wants to create a radiation free room: metal mats, which will shield the radiation directly on the plaster, he plans aluminum window frames and interior ventilation, so his wife can keep the windows closed if need be. The land behind the site have bought with the same Keuser. So there is no other house can be built, drag on no one but again caused a radiation source.
Psychosomatic or indeed sensible electro - Heike Keuser in pain.
To avoid them, they will continue to hide.
