  • Mold counts are sky high in Chicago

    The Fall 2011 allergy season is bad all-around - people from the East Coast to the West Coast and everywhere in between are likely to notice increased allergy symptoms that will last up to a few weeks later than usual. Many think these problems are specific to ragweed, but unfortunately, it seems that in many parts of the country, the mold count is up significantly, causing sneezing and wheezing among indoor allergy sufferers.

    Currently, Chicago's mold count is an alarming 54,000 spores per cubic meter, according to the Chicago Sun Times. This is well over a safe count and according to the news source, it's the third time already this year that Chicago has been on high alert for mold.

    Mold can cause allergy sufferers to notice symptoms such as headaches, sinus infections and fatigue. If you have allergies, you can alleviate some of your symptoms with a top-quality air purifier like those available at FreshAirPro.

    The AllerAir AirMedic+ Vocarb comes highly recommended among allergists because its advanced filtration system works at a higher level than the many purifiers on the market that only use standard HEPA filters. It even has an advanced UV light option that kills airborne mold mycotoxins, bacteria and viruses.

  • A fresh start for school with FreshAirPro

    If your child has asthma and allergies, there are many things you can do around the home to keep symptoms to a minimum. During summer months, many children see a reduction in symptoms because the circulation of fresh air helps reduce the instance of irritants in the air. However, once school starts, all the efforts you made to keep your little one's sneezing and wheezing to a minimum seem to go out the window.

    Possible classroom triggers include class pets, hairspray and perfume, chalk dust or even secondhand smoke on staff and students' clothing.

    Be sure your child is prepared for the classroom by reminding him of allergy triggers.

    Make sure your home is as trigger-free as possible. One way to ensure a hypoallergenic home is to use top-quality air purifiers like those available at FreshAirPro. Try an energy-efficient model like the BlueAir ECO10 Air Purifier. This special filtration system uses up to 95 percent less energy than others of its kind, yet it still has the ability to clear the air of 99.97 percent of all particles .3 microns in size or larger. Keep your home allergy-free with FreshAirPro.

  • Healthy diets for expecting mothers may reduce the chances of their babies developing allergies

    No one knows for sure what causes some people's bodies to attack harmless substances, but new research suggests there may be a solution for preventing allergies. It seems that babies of mothers who eat a diet rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) during pregnancy are less likely to have allergies.

    PUFAs are found in fish and walnut oils and have long been known to promote better health in babies, but it hasn't always been clear why. The new study, which was recently published in The Journal of Physiology, provides more insight.

    It appears that PUFAs make the baby's gut more permeable, allowing bacteria and foreign substances into the blood stream, which in turn increases the baby's production of antibodies.

    If you or your child have allergies, it's important to keep your home as allergy-free as possible. Installing a medical-grade air purifier can help reduce the amount of airborne allergens in your home. IQAir purifiers are considered to be the best by many professionals. Its HealthPro Plus model is an excellent choice for those suffering from a variety of respiratory ailments, including allergies. It is generally considered ideal for controlling common allergens, including dust, pollen, pollution, pet dander, smoke and mold. Breathe better with IQAir's HealthPro Plus.

  • Allergy season is the worst

    Allergies this past August were at a record high. A rainy summer meant high pollen counts, and unfortunately, global warming means allergies are likely to last longer than ever.

    Those who suffer from fall allergies can thank ragweed almost exclusively. Although the season usually runs from early to mid August until the early October, the end date is actually determined by the first frost. As global temperatures rise, the first frost isn't expected until a few weeks after its usual arrival. Allergy season continues until the frost comes.

    People with severe allergies should always check the pollen count and stay indoors on days that it's particularly high. When indoors, you can protect yourself with a top-of-the-line air filtration system like those available from FreshAirPro.

    For the worst allergies, consider a whole-house purifier such as The IQAir Perfect 16 (3-ton). It's one of the best filtration systems available to remove all sorts of allergies from pet dander, mold spores, dust and pollen. Make your home a safe place with a whole-house air purification system.

  • 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.
