Indoor air is often filthier than the air outdoors, but there are steps that we can take to protect our families.Pollution billows out of factory smokestacks and pours out vehicle exhausts.

With dedication and the proper approach, you can manage your cat allergy.Managing allergies is all about avoiding triggers, and for many sufferers, pet dander is a potent trigger. Therefore, reason tells us that the best course of action is to avoid owning dander-producing pets altogether. Of course, this isn’t all about reason. We’re emotional creatures, and love of our pets doesn’t necessarily reconcile with best logic.

There is good news, however. … Continue reading

Activated carbon uses a process called adsorption to remove toxic chemicals, VOCs and odors from the air.Most modern air purifiers use a pre-filter, a mechanical filter, such as a HEPA filter, and an activated carbon filter.

Read a customer testimonial for the Austin Air Allergy Machine.I’m a skeptic by nature, perhaps to a fault. There had been times in the past when I read articles about how HEPA air purifiers, portable ones no less, could reduce asthma and allergy symptoms. In some mild cases, they even claimed that the air purifier had eradicated the symptoms completely. I always disregarded those claims offhand, and I never … Continue reading

Cold-like symptoms in children are often misdiagnosed allergic reactions that are avoidable through prevention.Children often experience enduring or reoccurring cold-like symptoms, and parents often misdiagnose these as cold symptoms rather than the airborne allergy symptoms that they actually are.

An allergy is an overreaction to a pollutant by the immune system. All immune systems will react to a contaminant and attempt to evacuate it from the system. In an immune system experiencing an … Continue reading
