  • Dust mites and asthma

    Dust mites may be too small to see with the naked eye, but they make a big impact on the lives of allergy sufferers. In fact, new findings by researchers at the University of Melbourne suggest that dust mite sensitivity in toddlers is strongly linked with the development of asthma in childhood.

    "Our study did not show [that] house dust mite[s] caused asthma, but it highlighted a strong correlation between sensitivity and more severe [wheezing] and asthma," explained Dr. Caroline Lodge, head of the study.

    The results were significant. Seventy-five percent of the participants who tested positive for dust mite allergies as infants developed asthma by age 12, compared with only 36 percent who did not test positive for dust mites.

    Air purifiers, like those available through FreshAirPro, can filter those irritating particles out of the air you breathe and keep your allergy and asthma symptoms under control. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is our best-selling air purifier, and with its HyperHEPA filtration system, it's easy to see why. While most purifiers can only capture particles .3 microns in size, the IQAir HealthPro Plus can filter ultra-fine particles as small as .003 microns in size, which is smaller than a virus.

  • New treatment may soon be available for nasal allergy sufferers

    A possible alternative to steroidal nasal spray antihistamines may be on the horizon for nasal allergy sufferers, according to a recent article from Reuters Health. The treatment involves intranasal carbon dioxide, which has yet to be approved and is still in clinical trials.

    If it is approved, it could be good news for allergy sufferers who are reluctant to use steroids. However, some doctors, like Dr. Harold Nelson, an allergy specialist at National Jewish Health in Denver, Colorado, are unimpressed. He believes it provides little improvement for the possible negative side effects, including watery eyes and headaches.

    Regardless of whether the treatment is approved, there are a variety of alternatives to steroids and antihistamines, including neti pots, allergy shots and the use of an air purifier in the home. FreshAirPro sells top-of-the-line air purifiers like the Austin Allergy Air Machine. This top-selling model is the only one on the market to use high-efficiency gas absorption, or HEGA filtration, which removes contaminants before they can trigger symptoms.

  • Indoor air pollution

    Most people associate air pollution with smog and other outdoor pollutants, but household air pollution can be a major problem that triggers allergy and asthma symptoms. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, asthma has been a fast-growing problem in the last 20 years. As early as 1990, indoor air pollution was labeled a high-priority health risk by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencey (EPA).

    As such, it's important to treat the air in your household and limit the amount of pollutants and allergens you and your family track into your home.

    To reduce air pollution, you should be sure to keep the house ventilated and control sources of pollution. Our professional-grade air purifiers are extremely helpful in filtering pollutants and allergens out of the air you breathe.

    The AllerAir AirMedic MCS is one of the most effective purifiers for those with multiple chemical sensitivity and allergies. It features a medical-grade HEPA filter to remove even the tiniest particles. This eco-friendly filter which uses no neoprene, styrofoam, caulking or glue will make you feel good about your health and your part in helping the environment.

  • How pollen allergies relate to certain food allergies

    Many people who suffer from hay fever may also be allergic to certain fruits, vegetables, nuts or spices. This condition is known as pollen-food allergy syndrome.

    If you have a pollen allergy, you may notice that taking a bite out of an apple leaves your mouth itchy or tingly. Other common foods related to this type of allergy include hazelnuts, peaches, pears, raw potatoes, bananas and tomatoes - to name a few.

    Symptoms can range from a slight annoyance to swelling of the throat or anaphylactic shock. The allergy occurs because proteins in the fruits and vegetables are similar to the proteins in their pollen. Many report symptoms only when these foods are consumed raw.

    Those who suffer from cross-related allergies are often extremely discouraged from having to deal with the nasal and respiratory symptoms from pollen in addition to the food allergy. The good news is, you can reduce many of your airborne allergy symptoms, at least in your home.

    Our professional-grade air purifiers can rid the air in your home of common allergens. One such product, AllerAir AirMedic+ Vocarb, is specifically designed to control allergens and other particles that exacerbate allergies and asthma. Its advanced, medical-grade HEPA filtration technology performs at a higher level than in purifiers that only use standard HEPA filters.

  • Tips for fighting fall allergies

    With fall quickly closing in, ragweed and pollen allergies are out of control. There are simple and natural ways to keep allergy symptoms at bay, however.

    Keep your windows up while driving, as this can be one of the worst places to experience symptoms.

    Don't use window fans to cool your room down if you suffer from allergies, as they can actually pull allergens like pollen into your room. To clean the air of existing allergens, consider purchasing an air filtration system. FreshAirPro sells the best brands in the clean air industry, such as IQAir.

    The HealthPro Plus by IQAir is one of the best air purifiers available today. While most air purifiers can only remove particles larger than .3 microns, IQAir's HealthPro Plus features the HyperHEPA filtration system, which can actually filter particles as small as .003 microns in size.

    Using a neti pot daily to irrigate sinuses is also usually very helpful to those suffering from nasal and sinus-related allergy symptoms.

    Enjoy the weather this fall without the terrible allergies that usually keep you confined indoors.

  • Insurance companies not covering prescription allergy medications

    About 40 million Americans suffer from indoor or outdoor allergies, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Unfortunately for many allergy-sufferers, several insurance companies have stopped covering prescription allergy medications, according to the Carroll County Times.

    Those who once relied on prescriptions to ease their symptoms are now turning to over-the-counter drugs, many of which are not effective in relieving their moderate to severe sore throats, congestion and itchy eyes.

    Because of this, many brands that were once prescription-only only have begun to develop over-the-counter medications.

    Allergy-sufferers will benefit from keeping the air in their homes free from irritants with air purifiers from Fresh Air Pro. The Airgle 750 is one of its most advanced models, and it had the highest Clean Air Delivery Rate out of 159 other leading purifiers. It can remove everything from dust, pollen and mold to tobacco smoke.

    If your over-the-counter medication isn't doing the trick, use an air purifier to clear your home of the allergens that make you feel terrible.

  • Allergy symptoms vs. cold symptoms

    Many Americans suffer with allergies and don't even know it, often attributing their symptoms to colds or other viruses, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI). As seasonal allergies are getting worse with global warming, many who have never experienced allergy symptoms are beginning to notice them.

    Watch out for the timing and duration of your symptoms when determining whether your sneezing and coughing are related to allergies or a viral infection. If you get sick after coming in contact with someone who is ill, you likely just have a cold. If it doesn't clear up within a few weeks, see a doctor to rule out something more serious.

    If it's allergies, you may notice that you only get sick at certain times of the year, or that symptoms seem to go away and come back a week later. These are signs that you may have seasonal allergies, and you should go see a doctor about allergy testing.

    A quality air filter like the IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier from Fresh Air Pro can be helpful to keep your home free of allergens. While many air purifiers only have the ability to filter particles larger than .3 microns, the IQAir HealthPro Plus uses HyperHEPA technology to remove ultra-fine particles as small as .003 microns in size, eliminating the air of 99.5 percent of all pollutants and allergens. Breathe easy at home with a quality filtration system from Fresh Air Pro.

  • Sending your child back to school with allergies

    Many parents dread sending their children back to school with allergies. It's as if everything they've worked so hard for at home goes right out the window when they step into the classroom. Allergies and asthma can be exacerbated by everyday things like chalk dust, and many old school buildings are filled with mold.

    Making your home as allergy-free as possible is the first step to treating your child. Air purifiers, like the top-of-the-line purifiers sold at Fresh Air Pro, are extremely helpful for combating indoor allergies.

  • Allergy relief for animal lovers

    Because many pet allergies come from the skin and saliva of the animal and not just the fur, there's really no such thing as a truly hypoallergenic dog. That shouldn't stop the biggest dog lovers from realizing their dreams of owning a pet.

    If you have severe allergies but can't say goodbye to Fido, there are some steps you can take to reduce your symptoms. Brushing the dog outside and washing him regularly can reduce the amount of hair and fur in the house.

    Switch carpets for hardwood floors wherever possible, and keep the dog in areas of the house that aren't carpeted. Dusting and vacuuming regularly is a must for reducing allergens from household surfaces, however without an air purifier, they'll keep coming back. Try an air purifier from Fresh Air Pro, such as the BlueAir ECO10 Air Purifier.

    If you're still noticing symptoms, talk to a doctor about the possibility of allergy shots. Don't let allergies stop you from completing your family with man's best friend.

  • Keep your air pollutant-free for healthy genes

    Past studies have found that air pollution can actually cause DNA damage. This is bad news for those of us living in today's industrialized, polluted world. The good new is, air purifiers can actually help.

    Toxic airborne particles contribute to a number of diseases, from asthma to heart disease. HEPA filters, however, can block these particulates and clean environmentally polluted air, making it safer for us to breathe.

    In a 2004 study led by James Quinn, two sets of mice were tested, one that breathed polluted air and one that breathed HEPA-cleaned air, the Associated Press reports. Those who breathed the HEPA-filtered air had a 52 percent smaller chance of passing on genetic mutations to their offspring than those who breathed the outside air.

    Fresh Air Pro carries the highest-quality air purifiers, including the top-of-the-line IQAir GC VOC. It's specifically designed to control Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and paticulate contaminants. Help protect yourself and your future children with an air purifier from Fresh Air Pro.
