Notes

Abstract: Results of both informal investigation and formal research indicate that in the aftermath of a near-death experience (NDE) many experiencers report environmental effects, some of which types do clearly and other of which may, but do not clearly, involve electromagnetism (EM). Both types take two forms: the person acting on the environment and the person reacting to the environment. In this article we discuss the electrical nature of the human body and the literature regarding electromagnetic issues in the general population. We then review the literature on post-NDE electromagnetic changes and the non-EM changes that sometimes co-occur with and may be related to them. Finding inconsistencies in terminology both within and between authors' works, we propose more precise terminology -- including the relationship of non-EM and EM reaction to the World Health Organization's terms idiopaathic environmental intolerace (IEI) and IEI-electromagnetic field attributed symptoms (IEI-EMF). We conclude by discussing implications of the environmental effects literature for healthcare professionals whose clientele include near-death experiencers and for future directions in environmental effects research, including a call to future authors on these topics to foster greater clarity by using the more precise terminology we propose.
