Geomagnetic fluctuations and seizures

Recommended Posts

Hi, we have a son who goes through really intense status seizures when there are changes in the earths geomagnetic field.  We are searching for other people who have experience with this.  Does anyone report unusual symptoms such as seizures, headaches, mania, or other neurological issues during or right after storms?  We have been keeping a seizure diary and have backlogged all his seizure events with spaceweather history to reveal a nearly 100% correlation.  Seizure symptoms occur in him instantaneously, we sometimes can tell what’s going on with the magnetosphere before it’s updated on spaceweather.  Is there anyone out there with a similar experience?

thanks, 

mike

Besides the obvious advice of seeking medical attention for this immediately, which I hope you will do if you haven't already... this is what I think:

A "nearly 100%" correlation is unfortunately not a 100% correlation; you ought to expect your discovery to be discredited immediately without more data to show actual correlation. For instance, human beings do not possess geomagnetic-sensing capabilities as far as I or anyone on Earth knows, and if there is indeed research and experimentation showing real causality in Space Weather, and not proven medical conditions, please provide such, so as to convince me/anyone to see things your way and begin moving forward with this newfound discovery. 

This log of yours uses SWL's data only, which is absolutely incomplete in terms of the information we could probe within the Earth's magnetosphere. It could also have been below 15% humidity every day your son had an episode, which would be a more positive correlation in your experiment than what it is you're attempting to prove is a causality. Science is, in part, eliminating information from the "equation" that doesn't need to be there in order to ascertain some semblance of real truth and fact; have you done that at all?

Look up: "Confirmation Bias"

In any case, get your son to a Doctor. Doctors are trained to diagnose and choose a method of treatment for countless conditions in their school of medicine. Treating seizures is more imperative than noting coincidences in Earth's geomagnetic state. After all, would you rather discover the cause of his seizures was something that was too poorly understood to be treated, or a known disease that likely can be treated?? I choose the latter!

Hi cazador, thanks for the advice!! I think you are right on about getting medical help.  And you don’t have to worry, we sure have.  We have seen multiple specialists and have worked with neurologists as well as a geophysicist.  We do not think we have ‘discovered’ anything.  Geomagnetic storms causing seizures is nothing new and a simple search will reveal many many studies, peer reviewed and published.  We do not need confirmation from outside sources that this is happening.  We are just looking for others who share this sensitivity.  Our data comes from many sources around the world, not just SWL, and we do not need coaching on scientific methods.  Thank you for your time, next time though maybe stick to conversations that you can be a positive contributor to.

thanks

Hi Mike,

Can you link to a few of those peer reviewed studies?

It already takes quite a bit of effort to measure the effect of geomagnetic variations on earth, as man-made local variations are comparably strong, depending on the location. I quote from the SAM Network sensor installation guide:

Quote

Place the sensors in a magnetically quiet location where they will experience as little local magnetic disturbance as possible, usually in an open field or yard away from any buildings and automobile traffic.
It is important to remember that the magnetic sensor will pick up any variation in the local magnetic field, including automobiles, trucks and trains moving in the area, ferromagnetic tools brought nearby and other manmade magnetic disturbances. Any movement of the sensor or movement of ferromagnetic materials in its vicinity will cause a variation in the magnetic field measurements.

I'm curious how these studies were conducted. By walking around in a building you experience greater magnetic fluctuations than from any geomagnetic storm.

Michael,

My daughter and I, as well as a few of my friends, all experience similar symptoms during solar flares and geomagnetic activity. The symptoms rage from violent mood swings, headaches, flu like body pains and extreme fatigue. I’ve bedn too hundreds of doctors over the past 15 years, to be told I have “fibromyalgia.” Everyone else that has these issues has also been diagnosed with this catch all “syndrome.” I don’t think doctors have a clue honestly. They are great at treating acute emergencies and addressing life threatening situations, but beyond that, it’s a “rule everything out” game.

its frustrating to say the least. If you’ve seen a doctor and received no help, I’d recommend exploring alternative or eastern healing modalities. I’ve had success with CBD oil, spirulina and chlorella, and on days with geo activity, high doses of vitamin c and double the water intake. What you are going through the medical field does not address, and MANY are skeptical to believe because it’s out of the norm from societal “medical” conditions. You aren’t alone though!

Sorry you are having such trouble. Hope your son gets by. But, your log is of very considerable science value, and at some time the system will wake up. Keep at it, if circumstances permit. At a guess, it may be possible, very carefully, to generate a counter-field. A friend has an auto system for plants. Get back if so minded.

I just discovered this post and am so glad to see others talking about this.  I have noticed very clearly that I experience a specific feeling of oppression and negativity 3 days before a solar wind event is predicted to reach Earth.  I will often get the characteristic "feeling", then look online to see if a coronal hole is facing earth and see that it has just turned towards Earth, but the solar wind event from it will take approximately 3 days to get here.  My theory is that there is some sort of energy wave or shock wave that precedes the solar wind itself, but current science is, as of yet, unable to detect this particular energy (so ignores or ridicules evidence of it, as science has so often done with so many other things until it can finally actually somehow measure the phenomenon).  EM

Ya know its hard to believe finding a current discussion about this. 2 of the most unpredictable events that humans have ever known, or experienced, are Seizures and Solar Activity (with old g/f and mother in a tight race). There is no record when either began, and will probably be some of the final events humans endure as well... And, in all that time... and the time to come... there is a very good chance either may forever be MIS--understood, and therefore open to discussions of discovery and share genuine experiences. We may never be able to help ourselves, but, all of us have opportunities to assist those to come. I am much appreciative for the beginning of this "Down to Earth" dialogue (literally)... The next step here is to update the old laptop so I can also share. Terrible Events but this is a Wonderful Topic. I guess I'm a bit partisan though... more to follow...

Hi there! I have aspergers syndrome, tourette, migraine and ADD. I have had epilepsy-like seizures 3 years and I started to study the link between geostorms and them. I also found a lots of information about this and also much about other human-effects. I had these seizures during geostorms. With medication seizures have stopped but bad migraines tend to occur always when geomagnetism is fluctuating. And I have made my own little study with my friends and I always give information to them, when G-storms are informed to occur. And every time I get the same results: friends with diabetes have very Hard time to keep their insuline-balance In control and everyone with migraine gets a bad One. Myself I have More neurological symptoms (tics and migraine-auras lasting even 4 days) and swelling, tiredness, tinnitus and nausea. Also these happen to my children too. And they report that In their school children get nausea while storms. I have noticed also that my dogs and cats also vommit with no reason at times of G's. 

I worked In place with diasbled people and noticed that while storms there was also a lot of involuntary wetting and mood-swings. And more frequent seizures with people with epilepsy and big troubles to get insuline-levels right with diabetics.

@Sani A. Lehmus: Yup, you donʼt have to convince me—I believe solar-geomagnetic activity was a primary trigger to major eye issues Iʼve had in the past (inflamation), as well as gastrointestinal issues.
Ya know, Vancanneyt, given the increased recognition and research to heliobiology (“spaceweather biology”), it might be worthwile to consider adding a heliobiology forum where such research discussion and personal experience and theorizing can take place...just make sure there is a vivid disclaimer on the page that your mileage may vary!  P=)

Hello Michael Gimmeson,

I am one of those people who is Allergic to the 21st Century. Most of the people who are dealing with these types of issues call it Environmental Illness or Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and if they react to electricity or electromagnetic fields, they will call it Electrical Hypersensitivity. I have serious reactions to man made chemicals and I also have reactions to electromagnetic fields and radio frequencies. I am very grateful that seizures are not on my list of things to experience. I am so very sorry about your son, please know that I said a prayer for him and your family today.  I have no proof about how the Sun or the Earth's magnetic field affects me, but I can tell you, whether it's out in the country or in the city, the combination of mold, with an electromagnetic field or a radio frequency, especially Wi-Fi, will increase my reactions to the point where I cannot function. First I will start Stuttering, then I will start Stumbling, then I will start Sniveling, which is really irritating because I'm not typically a crier, after that I will start doing Stupid things, and then it gets Scary! I call it my S list. I try to avoid it. I was living in a home where all of the walls were filled, on the inside, with black mold. I did not know it until after I had moved out of that house.  I have now become sensitized to mold, of all kinds, and since you find mold everywhere, it can make life interesting. There have been times when I just could not figure out what I was reacting to out in the country, away from everybody and everything, until a friend of mine, who is also Allergic to the 21st Century, said that she had issues with both solar flares and coronal mass eruptions. I only recently found out about this, so I have no tracking at all, to prove my theory. But I was delighted to see that research is going forward. I was also sorry, yet at the same time, glad, to see that other people are noticing correlations as well. 

My doctor is a toxicologist, and internist, and he has a video about EHS or electrical hypersensitivity that you may find interesting. He also is an expert on mold and how debilitating that can be to the body and the mind. I hope this information helps you and your family and especially your son.

Hello, 

I’m so glad you’ve pinpointed your sons trigger. Geomagnetic activity alters our brain chemistry and stimulates unusual melatonin and serotonin secretion. 

We are electrical beings. If the energy can cause transformers to explode  and electricity to arc on power lines, Imagine what happens to the electrical synapses in our brain and body during proton events. The risk of stoke and heart attack increases during geomagnetic activity.  

If you aren’t using it already, applying magnesium lotion on your sons feet during high geomagnetic activity can help the body process the energy.

Studies suggest that accumulation of Mg, in particular tissues of the Central Nervous System and endocrine glands regulated by the pituitary gland and hypothalamus, may indicate the differential role Magnesium  ions have in keeping the homeostasis of certain tissues, those of the brain, adrenal glands and testes after exposure to ionizing radiation. I believe NASA is also using magnesium to help astronauts recover from exposer in space.

 

Switch to a grass fed butter so he gets vitamin K2. This will keep his pineal gland healthy and producing correct neurotransmitters when stimulated by light and energy. 

 

❤️

I'm super sensitive to all and any energetic activity. Right now there is a coronal hole facing Earth. When the coronal hole stream comes in it makes a change in mood more negative and more sleepy. I get migraines. What I do to counteract solar waves influencing my brain waves is I wear a magnetic necklace of sphere magnets. The magnetic force of the spheres creates a shift in the magnetic forces that surround me and stabilizes my brainwaves. I put them on the temple of my head (above the ear area) sometimes because its in the hippocampus that magnetic force is detected and processed. Also drinking plenty of electrolytes and resting helps as well. Now during a cme when a sunspot releases energy that hits Earth there is a different reaction it brings more energy and makes for a more positive mood. From what I feel coronal holes pull in energy while sunspots push. This also alters the perception of time as well. Coronal hole days seem to drag as if time is slowed down and Sunspots that release energy accellerates time speeding it up. I've been researching this for years. Now coronal hole energy also increases my depression and anxiety so if I get too anxious I take Benadryl to calm myself and for depression I do self talk and remember this is a chemical reaction to environmental activity. Everyone's story is different but EVERYONE and all life on Earth is effected by these energies. I can't stand coronal holes because it creates a lot of chaos on Earth from earthquakes, natural disasters, plane crashes, social unrest and just negativity all around. Hopefully one day this will be taken seriously but it seems they are just discovering this in the mainstream. Till then all I can say is it is a heightened awareness of magnetic forces.

Hello, yes! My wife and I are having extream sensativity , we have both been in and out of the hospital multiple times in the last 6 months both medical and mental hospitals. I had every test run except a PET scan. Symptoms go as extream as visual hullucinations, extream panic, light sensitivity, emotional upheavals. Been trying to figure this out but have come to complete dead ends. FYI me , my wife and son are ausberger but mild on the spectrum. My visuals pick up all electromagnetic waves. I can turn on a box fan for example and the spirals in my eyes syncronize to it. I can also pick up the electrostatic from other people, i can see them with my eyes closed. Very scary sometimes , I wish i had an answer.  

Thanks Bryon

New evidence does suggest that people can sense changes in earths magnetic field.

https://www.sciencenews.org/article/people-can-sense-earth-magnetic-field-brain-waves-suggest

SpaceWeather.com posted an article, Can Humans Sense Magnetic Storms?, about that study, including a link to a pdf version of the whole eNeuro paper, Transduction of the Geomagnetic Field as Evidenced from Alpha-band Activity in the Human Brain.

One thing I find interesting about the discussion right here, in this forum, is that some have mentioned being Aspergic/on the autism spectrun (I was never diagnosed as being an Aspie, but given my history, quirks and interests, I would say I am definitely—at least mildly—Aspergic...plus I was most certainly classified as ADHD in my grade school years! P=)
Given that the nature of autism is that oneʼs brain is wired differently, as well as those on the spectrum are more gastrointestinally sensitive, maybe we are actually physically more heliobiologically sensitive–?

I too am tracking my symptoms and there is a correlation.  My "predictions" as painful as they can be at times, are 100% accurate.  The space weather does affect us. I thought you might be interested in this: https://www.caltech.edu/about/news/evidence-human-geomagnetic-sense

Thatʼs referring to the same eNeuro paper....Actually, they have a link to the cleaner, “submitted” version, with all of the figures/images inline (and without that green side banner!):  Transduction of the Geomagnetic Field as Evidenced from Alpha-band Activity in the Human Brain (Submitted Version))
