Hi everybody. Just four sensible replies. I will try to answer the concerns raised.

  1. An electric hairdrier can be made ‘safe’ by fitting a bridge rectifier in series with the heating element. (four diodes) This needs to be carried out by an engineer or skilled electrician. The result will reduce the electromagnetic field close to the head by around 80 percent. The motor itself radiates but this is very complex to change.

The best recommendation is to use the type of hairdrier with the heater and fan on the wall, with the air supplied to dry your hair via a flexible tube.

The electromagnetic field from any source follows what is called an inverse square law. This means that if you double the distance between you and the source you quarter! the effect!! To buy such a hairdrier look for ‘Less EMF’ on the internet. They are in New York’ I promise I have no vested interest. I have bought various products from them over the last few years.

  1. With regard to anaemia, I confess I dont know anything about it. But, it is still possible to have iron deposits in the brain. If at some time in your life, before you developed anaemia this iron vibrated because of electromagnetic fields the MS damage would have started. I have such but the blood iron level is normal. I am currently waiting to have a genetic test for iron overload. If positive it might explain a lot. I took iron suppliments for a couple of weeks at the beginning of the year. That was definitely a mistake, my symptoms worsenned. I’m still suffering as a result. For me at least I expect the best treatment will be phlebotomy.

  2. Glad you are enjoying your hairdrier and probably like all women use it everyday. No doubt its quite powerful (2kW) ? I dont know your age and you dont need to say but note that myelin is not fully mature until you are about 25. For those much older with MS they may find some relief moving a hairdrier on its side across the scalp (not with the hot air directed at the head). If this gives gout like pain in the lower body, then stop. Ferritin molecules will vibrate at 50Hz back into the bloodstream and may well deposit elsewhere in the body. This is my experience. Take great care!

  3. With steel around you, you are reducing electromagnetic fields entering the body, but remember that it is the very small fields that cause MS damage. For this reason put steel wirewool (in a plastic bag) in your pillow at night. The tiny steel filaments will move as you breathe making it highly absorbent of such fields. Just do it and you will be protected from further demyelination. If you wish to reduce symptoms affecting eyesight and balance during the day you need to ask the moderator if you can send me your email and I will send you copies of three reports with photos. Thats the best I can offer…

With very best wishes.

Do you have to raise a new thread about this every single time, so people cannot see the dialogue that went before? It’s getting very irritating!

You still haven’t answered what makes an electrical engineer better qualified than the entire discipline of Neurology to identify the “causes” of MS.

But I guess you don’t regard that as a “sensible” question, so you will avoid bringing it back to the top, where people could see that it was asked, but that you failed to answer - and draw their own conclusions.

I guess “sensible” replies are only those that go along (or pretend to!) with your truly bizarre and unique theories in a field (no pun intended) in which you have no background or qualifications.


Well said Tina !

I have iron overload (haemochromatosis) which is only treated by regular venesections, blood lettting, until the iron level is safe. Out of all the sufferers that i have met, which is quite a few, I have never met any that also have ms. Both my haemotologist and neurologist have said there is no evidence of a link between the two. I urge everyone to stick to the professionals opinion and ignore any posts that dont have any evidence to back them up. Mick.

Quite apart from the “new thread every time”, are you not confusing Ferritin with Ferrite, Simon?

The generally accepted view is that serum ferritin IN the blood is a measure of how much iron (ferrite) is stored in the body.


While we are waiting for a new thread to start (with the same title) that will fail to address the points that have been made, a new thought struck me:

and this form of words has been used more than once.

For someone who has been a member of this forum for over 18 months, Simon seems to have an awful lack of knowledge as to how it really works - but then he has only started posting here for a few days.
The permission of the moderators is NOT needed to exchange private e-mails. Quite a few of us do communicate with each other using private e-mail. We can exchange these using the PM system.
Of course, if he gave his own e-mail address out, the mods might get the idea that he was touting for business and delete the whole post.

Quite a clever guy is our Simon - developer of a cure for MS, classical guitarist, portrait painter (even if he did have to develop a special pantograph to enlarge photos into pencil sketches - something most of us do a a matter of course using Photoshop).i
My next question is why he spent three years trying to get the MS Society to take notice of hs steel wool notion. Yes, really. Three years. Well, that is what he posted on a Phillipines health blog:

and that was posted in July 2012. So he has been in contact with the MS Society for four years - and only joined the forum last year (before posting on the Phillipines blog).

Wonderful thing, the Internet.


Thats a good one, women use hair driers every day. I NEVER use one and I’m sure I’m not the only one.lol

No, I never use one either. I’ve got one, but I couldn’t even tell you where it is. My hair would be like - haha, funnily enough, wirewool if it was washed and blow-dried every day. It gets washed about every 3-4 days, and left to dry naturally.


I love my hair dyer, use it at least once a day, have done for years and years. Cheryl:-)

Me too Cheryl. Sometimes ever day as when I wake up it is all frizzy so I damp it down and dry it.

Sorry Simon but this post has completely confused me. There are far too many points to take in in one go.


I read the start of this thread and thought ‘they might be sensible answers (who knows!), but what were the questions?’

Just ramdom thoughts on ‘stuff’ that came into someone’s head, maybe?

Why not do what other people do and put your answer on the thread with the question?

I would be interested to know Simon where you got your qualifications from, where you studied and who you studied under. I’m sure your mentor would be flabbergasted to learn that you are posting on here with incorrect information. Quite where you ‘learnt’ that myelin doesn’t fully develop until your 25 years old is beyond me as that is factually incorrect. This is only one thing that was factually incorrect there are many more. Like I said I would be very interested to know where you studied and who you studied under.

So, lots of questions, but no answers - so here are three more:

What is the mechanism/process by which a pad of steel wool under one’s pillow can intercept elecromagnetic radiation.
It does not surround the head - so it cannot work like a Faraday Cage. So, what does it do?

And, what grade of steel wool? Since the strands are of different thickness and length, their reflective ability should only work on certain frequencies.

Finally, what frequencies are thes radiation that it is claimed can do us harm?
