Animal Allergies

healthy_goo_allergy_treatments

It is estimated that there are 78 million dogs and 85.8 million cats owned in the U.S.  Animal/pet allergies are very common and affect more than 3 million people in the US. This is the most relatively common type of allergy and can occur more often in people with asthma and can also fun in your family (genetically).

Those of us who have pet allergies are all too familiar with its symptoms of sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, coughing, watery and red and itchy eyes and some people even develop skin rashes or hives.   Pet allergies can make it difficult for people to own a pet and if they own a pet, they may suffer from the symptoms if not properly treated.

The best way to manage and treat pet allergies would be to avoid being around dogs and cats and if you do have a pet at home we suggest limiting your exposure to your pet.  Often times people need nasal sprays, antihistamines or bronchodilators to help relieve their symptoms.   Another highly effective way to minimize household contaminated air as a result of pet and pet dander is to purchase an Airfree Air Purifier.

An Airfree Air Purifier is an natural solution for asthma, mold, respiratory allergy and contaminated air due to pet dander and pets.  It is maintenance free and by running an Airfree Air Purifier in your home, you will destroy even the smallest of airborne microorganisms.  Airfree uses its unique ceramic heating chamber without any ozone being used.

Super bugs and super bacteria

86e2891f7426fb5f7f946f36e511d3e9

Super bugs and super bacteria are fast spreading.  Bacteria are thriving and have many functions in all environments and because of this it is causing alarm for those in the scientific community as many of these super bacteria are becoming antibiotic resistant.   The first antibiotic, Penicillin, was discovered accidentally in 1928, by biologist, Alexander Fleming.  He was researching Bacterium Staphylococcus Aureus, which even today is one of the biggest villains in hospital infections. The discovery of Penicillin was a huge leap forward for medicine as bacteria back then could cause tuberculosis and pneumonia and with this new antibiotic, could now treat those who needed it.  In the 1940s it became widely used and after its amazing discovery and with the help of other new antibiotics, our world population took a huge leap and in 50 years, we had tripled our population.

 

This seemed like a happy ending back then, however we know that with time many of the bacteria we encounter are becoming more resistant to Penicillin (including Staphylococcus) as well as other antibiotics that have been released throughout the years. It is estimated that by 2050, at least 10 million people worldwide will die yearly due to superbugs.

 

While clinicians and pharmaceutical industries are limiting the overuse of antibiotics, us, as a whole population must do our part.  Some of the ways to avoid being infected with a superbug or super bacteria are:

 

  • If antibiotics are not controlled in your country, do not buy these drugs without a prescription.  The more antibiotics you take, the greater the chance you have to becoming resistant to the treatment.  Remember, antibiotics also eliminates good bacteria and by killing the good you become more unprotected and weaken your system.
  • Consult responsible professionals and to not press your doctor to administer antibiotics, including for your child.  Listen to the options that your clinician has offered and if you have questions… ask!  Take antibiotics ONLY when NEEDED.
  • If you need to take an antibiotic, never stop taking it on your own, even if you begin to feel better.  This can lead to the selection of resistant bacteria and an increased worry of infection.  Respect the dosage and administration.
  • Avoid going to hospitals unless necessary.  Consult with your clinician/physician first if it is not an emergency.

How to Eliminate Mold

1ed3f73cf01b3ec94b7054f5c9cae1fb4d72c69fdc6f4d1915pimgpsh_fullsize_distr

 

Mold loves to live in damp places and it is often times found inside walls due to a leak in plumbing or a leaking roof and on your ceiling from the same sources but it can also be caused by excess moisture in your home from the bathroom and or kitchen where there can be a lot of condensation.  Mold is sneaky and before long, if not controlled, can become a nightmare.

 

The most visible type of mold is mildew.  Mildew starts out as tiny small black spots and if not treated quickly can grow into large colonies.  Mildew is often found on grout in the shower, on outdoor decking, siding and in any damp shady area.

 

The best way to treat and remove areas of mold and mildew is by using a mixture of 1 cup bleach to 8 cups water solution and thoroughly scrubbing the affected areas.  Always take precautions when cleaning and we highly suggest using gloves, goggles and a respirator so that you don’t inhale any of the spores.

 

If you suspect you have a heavier mold infestation, like in the walls or in your frame of the house, attic, basement, the best suggestion is to contact a remediation company as they are heavily equipped to handle larger issues.

 

Once you have cleaned up the mold/mildew the key is to stop it from continuing to grow.   Stop all leaks, ensure that your house and bathroom have adequate ventilation and keep areas like your attic and crawlspaces dry.

 

An Airfree Air Purifier is also a natural and effective solution for asthma, mold, respiratory allergy and contaminated air.  It is maintenance free and by running an Airfree Air Purifier in your home, you will destroy even the smallest of airborne microorganisms.  Airfree uses its unique ceramic heating chamber without any ozone being used.

Those of us who have dust allergies are all too familiar with its symptom – sneezing. Sneezing isn’t the only symptom, dust allergies can also cause a runny or stuffy nose, eyes to become red, watery and itchy along with an overall body itch, wheezing and coughing. Dust allergies can make it difficult for people to breathe and in turn can trigger asthma symptoms.  Some of the more common triggers to dust allergies are dust mites, mold, pollen, cockroaches and pet dander.  Typically people have a flair up when they vacuum, dust and sweep and symptoms can increase when visiting other homes.

The best way to manage and treat dust allergies would be to utilize mite-proof cases on mattresses and pillows, wash bed linens in hot water, keep pets out of bedroom, remove wall-to-wall carpets, especially in the bedroom, and minimize household humidity.  Also another  highly effective way to minimize household contaminated air is to purchase an Airfree Air Purifier.
