infants and young children whose immune systems are not yet particularly sensitive to allergies, and also side anti-allergic drugs and hazardous materials. Routine exposure to allergy in the home can lead to chronic asthma if left unchecked. There is a mass of evidence that asthma and allergies can be avoided by eliminating the main triggers. When these calls have been eliminated, the next step in a drug-free approach is to strengthen the immune system, however, the use of harmless nutrients in precise doses and ratios.
First, here are 7 tips for removing allergens and other hazards of your
1. Rid your home of dust mites. Change the humidity and temperature of your home. Keeping the humidity below 50% with mechanical ventilation with heat recovery unit is proven to greatly reduce the dust mite population. Wash all bedding weekly in 60 degrees Celsius or 130 degrees Fahrenheit and drying in a hot dryer will kill dust mites that live there. Dry cleaning carpets and blankets weekly may also be necessary.
2. Avoid toxins such as organophosphates found in pesticides and insecticides, wood treatments, flea and tick treatments, flame retardant, mosquito spray and lice shampoo. They kill insects by disrupting their brains and nervous systems, but there is serious concern that they may also be harmful to humans and pets, so do not introduce potential new risks into your home in an effort to eliminate the current problems.
3. Avoid toluene-laced aroma as those found in perfumes, air-fresheners, carpet cleaning liquid furniture wax, car-tires, plastic garbage bags, ink, hair gel, hair spray and cat litter. Toxicological studies have shown that the perfume used in cat litter can cause asthma in humans. The safest strategy is to avoid products with added fragrance.
4. Cockroaches are problems for dead roaches and droppings produce a known allergen that collects dust and can last home even months after the infestation has been eradicated. To prevent cockroach invasion, remove sources of moisture and moisture such as leaky pipes and condensation, keep all the floors and kitchen surfaces without crumbs, food scraps, spillages
5. Eliminate mold in the bathroom, kitchen and basement, known allergies and asthma triggers. Mold can also grow on foam pillow where the moisture of sweat accumulate. Let foam pillows in airtight covers, wash weekly and replace annually. Regularly check houseplants for mold growth. Plants may need to be kept outside.
6. Airborne Particles, cigarette and wood smoke with all types of air pollution are known to contribute to the increased incidence of asthma. Use HEPA air cleaners at home. HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Air) filters will eliminate pollens and animal dander. Using a HEPA vacuum cleaner and steam cleaning rugs and upholstery regularly can also help prevent dust mites. Remember to close the windows in the days when outdoor pollution levels are known to be high.
7. Food allergies can cause asthma. Noted common food allergens are are milk, eggs, peanuts, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat. Vigilance is to identify foods that produce a reaction. Hypersensitivity chocolate has been linked cockroach protein contaminants in cocoa beans. Fresh fruit and vegetables may also bear traces of organophosphates as discussed above, and should be thoroughly washed before eating.
Removing allergy triggers as possible will significantly reduce the incidence of hypersensitivity reactions, but in the long term, the use of powerful, natural products to enhance the immune system of the child is the safest way to protect them for life.
