Childhood Asthma

In fact, the children who had insufficient vitamin D levels were seventy percent more likely to experience an asthma exacerbation compared to children with normal levels of this vitamin.

Asthma Solutions

Does someone in your home suffer from Nasal Allergies or Asthma? As a lifelong allergy sufferer, I was so happy to find out about the many benefits of air purifiers for my condition. I have taken allergy shots and prescription allergy medicines for years, and my symptoms are under control more often than not. 

Still, it isn’t unusual for me to experience the familiar itchy eyes, stuffy nose, uncontrollable sneezing, and other unpleasant reminders of my allergies fairly regularly. 

I recently learned that the air quality inside our homes is actually worse than that of the air in the outside environment. Therefore, many

  • allergic reactions,
  • asthma attacks, and other
  • bronchial and
  • nasal health problems

Can be attributed to factors inside our homes. This is why everyone who suffers with allergies, asthma, frequent bronchial infections, and other similar health challenges should use an Air Purifier indoors on a regular basis. Read More >>
