Are your allergies at an all-time high during the fall and winter seasons? Have you noticed your allergies last longer each year? According to allergist Stephen Tilles, MD, the president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI), “Climate change may actually be causing an earlier and longer fall allergy season. In addition, windy days can mean heightened allergy symptoms because wind can carry the pollen from ragweed, grasses and trees up to 100 miles from its source.” Not only are allergens increased during the fall season, but they are also the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S.
With the demands of everyday life, whether it is from your profession, tending to children, or other mundane necessities like grocery shopping and doing laundry, it can seem like there isn’t enough time to relax and take care of You.
What if you could boost your immune system, relieve pain and stress, and feel more energized in as little as thirty minutes? These are just some of the benefits that regular sessions in a steam sauna can provide. In this article we’ll explore a little more of these benefits in depth.
When using ozone insufflations, it is important to know which ozone strength is appropriate. Below you will find a quick guide on amounts of gamma (ug/ml) and for what they are usually recommended.
Gamma is a way in which we measure the concentration of ozone gas. This is important because it gives us a way to determine what concentration level you will be receiving. Most ozone generators used medically will typically have a chart that will help you determine the different concentrations the generator can achieve.
Our ability to produce oxidants like reactive oxidant species (ROS), more commonly known as free radicals, is a core function of our immune system. The immune system uses ROS production as a key weapon for fighting invading pathogens and initiating tissue repair. When there are more pro-oxidants than antioxidants, however, you end up with a redox imbalance and may be under threat of oxidative stress.
With the growing focus on diet and its impact on one’s overall health, certain buzzwords are often overused as a marketing ploy to increase sales. Some good examples of terms and phrases are words like superfoods, probiotics, all-natural, multigrain, and gluten-free, just to name a few. While these terms aren’t inherently bad, marketing teams misuse them to their advantage, sometimes casting the product they’re marketing in a misleading light.
The water crisis in Flint, Michigan has brought water quality back to the headlines. We now know how the residents of Flint were poisoned by lead, and more stories are arising from around the country. Flint is far from the only city facing this problem. Other cities in Michigan and around the country score even higher when it comes to lead.
Because ozone is a very powerful oxidizing agent, it tends to be very reactive. That’s why it’s important to understand that not all materials are appropriate for use with ozone. Because of the chemical properties of ozone we can deduce that certain materials will be better than others. We will analyze them in this article.
When doing ozone therapy, you will need to have an oxygen source feeding into the ozone generator. This can be done in several different ways. You can use an oxygen concentrator, a medical oxygen tank, or an industrial oxygen tank. In this article we will examine why it is important to use a direct oxygen feed and why an ambient feed should never be used for ozone therapy.
As temperatures drop and we spend more time indoors, the quality of the air in our homes becomes even more important. There are a lot of options to purify the air, and all have their advantages. If your concerns include viruses, mildew, mold, and other airborne contaminates, you might want to consider ozone.
What is ozone? Have you ever been outside following a lightning strike and experienced the clean, fresh smell the lightning creates? That smell is ozone, nature’s personal air purifier. Obviously we can’t unleash lightning in our homes, but ozone generators make it simple to bring that natural process inside.
