Improve Indoor Air Quality to Improve Allergies
Many people with allergies stay indoors when the pollen is high making indoor air quality just as important as outdoor air quality. Indoor air can have allergens such as dust mites, pets, cockroaches and mold. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends you improve indoor air quality by ventilating your indoor areas well and using air cleaners to clean the indoor air. Be sure and use a certified asthma and allergy friendly air cleaner.
Allergens can cling to walls, furniture, clothing and other surfaces. Be sure and wash sheets and bedding weekly in hot water, shampoo your hair before bed to remove pollen and vacuum floors and mattresses weekly. Clean showers, tubs and sinks with toxin-free, earth friendly products often to prevent mold.
Relieve Allergy Congestion with Gentle Touch
When the body’s immune system over reacts to pollen or other allergens the sinuses become irritated and inflamed. Lymph drainage therapy is a type of specialized massage that gently assists the lymphatic system in maintaining the body’s fluid balance. By manually stimulating the increased flow of lymphatic fluid, it can reinvigorate your immune system and sweep out harmful toxins. Craniosacral Therapy can also help provide relief from congestion. It is a gentle, hands-on approach that allows the practitioner to detect and correct restriction in any tissues influencing the craniosacral system. Both of these therapies provide a gentle and efficient way to open the sinuses and allow drainage to occur almost immediately.
