The first portion of the paper is definitely frustrating, especially because they themselves identify a fantastic application for the technology, namely the detection of people trapped in avalanches.
As for not having antenna's capable of detecting ELF radiation they do address this in the paper, if you notice both antenna designs are absolutely massive. The loop antenna has over 500 meters of wire wrapped on it, which is why its effective aperature size is 118 square meters.
I think it is very probable that the human body produces electric or magnetic fields that can be detected. Consider that any electric current produces a magnetic field. The term "current" is defined as the movement of electric charges, which do NOT have to be electrons. The net movement of a bulk of ions can also be considered an electric current (nutrients in blood maybe?). So for example the contraction of your heart is forcing the movement of a fluid (blood) around your body, if this fluid contains a net positive or negative ionic concentration now we have an electric current the pulsatile nature of which would cause a propagating wave. That being said the fields in question would be extremely low in magnitude.
The body is an extremely complicated mechanical, chemical, and electrical system!

It works through the pineal gland which is a piezoelectric transducer.
That's how the brain emits electromagnetic energy.

I stumbled across this guy in another thread yesterday... which kinda makes you wonder what we're all capable of if we put our minds to it.

Quoted from the Full Paper linked by the OP.
The measurable component of ocular extramission in
the 0–40 Hertz range could be considered to be a special limited instance of the
larger theoretical category of morphogenic fields. Extralow frequency electromagnetic
radiation emitted through the eyes cannot account for the possibility
that the sense of being stared at can be transmitted through video cameras and
electronic circuits, as described by Sheldrake (2003, 2005a, b), however. this Phenomenon would require a property of morphogenic fields not possessed by conventional electromagnetic radiation.
