Allergies and Chronic Sinusitis

Ionic air purifiers like the pioair are not recommended for people who have allergies or asthma. They emit ozone, which is a lung irritant. Melissa, in the past decade or so, researchers have discovered that many people with chronic sinus infections have fungal infections rather than bacterial infections. In these cases, antibiotics can actually make the sinusitis worse by killing "good" bacteria. I have interviewed several doctors about sinus infections, and I think you'll find the information helpful: http://www.achooal lergy.com/dr-tiche nor-interview.asp http://www.achooal lergy.com/dr-ivker -holistic-sinusiti s-treatment.asp http://www.achooal lergy.com/dr-mehta -interview.asp The best treatment for allergies - and the only treatment with absolutely no side effects - is environmental control of allergens.

Do you think you're suffering from allergies?

Hi Giusy! The best treatment is to avoid future exposure to formaldehyde (phormaldeide) - but this can be difficult because formaldehyde is so pervasive in modern society. Formaldehyde is commonly found in plywood, carpeting, textiles, construction materials, and even clothing! You should also avoid other chemicals that release formaldehyde - like Quaternium-15, imidazolidinyl urea, and diazolidinyl urea. Quaternium-15 is found in many personal care products like shampoo. Fortunately, you can find non-toxic personal care products like Free & Clear Shampoo and Conditioner: http://www.achooal lergy.com/free-cle ar-shampoo.asp Note that formaldehyde is also a cancer-causing chemical.  (Oct 10, 2007 | post #3)

Allergic to silver Jewellery

Hi Melinda! Are you sure that you're allergic to silver? Were you tested for silver allergy? I'm asking because nickel allergy is much more common, and nickel is typically found in silver jewelry. If you are indeed allergic to nickel instead of silver, you can test for the presence of nickel and even wear jewelry containing nickel (after applying a protective coating) with the Nickel Solution kit.

Household anti-allergen products

Hi, Connie! Sunlight actually does a great job of killing dust mites! To kill dust mites in a rug, for example, place the rug outside for a few hours. Freezing temperatures kill dust mites, too. You can kill dust mites in a child's stuffed animal by placing it in the freezer overnight. As far as products made to kill dust mites, you'll find safe, effective products at achooallergy.com: http://www.achooal lergy.com/dustmite allergy.asp#Dust_M ite_Allergy_Relief _Products_for_Carp et_and_Upholstery  (Oct 8, 2007 | post #4)
