It’s why Josh says: “I was recommended to try the air optimiser in room and my bedding to help with my allergies. It is fantastic! I wake up without itchy eyes, sneezing and a runny nose!” Keep reading to find out more…
Firstly, What are Allergens?
Wikipedia defines allergies, or allergic diseases as
‘a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment’.
Allergies are becoming more and more common. They have become so prevalent over the past 50 years that they are now the fourth most chronic disease worldwide:
Can Allergies be Airborne?
Yes; allergies can be airborne. In fact, there are three main types of allergens:
- Airborne: includes pollen, mites, mould spores and animal hair. The most common airborne allergies – more than two thirds of all allergies – are caused by mites and pollen. These cause respiratory and skin symptoms.
- Chemical: includes everyday household cleaning products, air fresheners and candles as well as synthetic materials (furniture, paint, glue, etc.). Many of these common chemicals contain allergenic substances that can trigger an immune system response. They also release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air. These VOCs irritate the respiratory tract and mucous membranes. Read our article Polluted Pets to find out more. This focus is on pets, but applies equally to humans too.
- Food: includes adverse reactions to cow’s milk and wheat.
Respiratory allergies are the most common, followed by contact allergies and then food allergies:
When is Your Allergy Season?
If you suffer from hay fever, ‘Allergy Season’ probably means ‘pollen season’. This can last from around March to October – a significant time – but your own allergy season may be different, depending on what you are sensitive to: May is often worse for grass pollen allergies and June is often worse for tree pollen. September can trigger hay allergies.
In contrast, dust mite allergy is a problem all year around. It may increase in September when Autumn arrives and we get cosy inside, close the curtains and put the heating on.
Can You be Allergic to Dust and Not Dust Mite?
If you suffer from dust mite allergy, you’ll know how uncomfortable the symptoms can be. Respiratory reactions are often similar to hay fever (sneezing, itchy eyes and runny nose) and asthma (wheezing, coughing and difficulty breathing). Skin reactions include atopic and contact dermatitis; tiredness and poor concentration are also common.
But to be accurate, these dust mite allergy symptoms are not triggered by dust or the mites themselves. They are triggered by proteins in the droppings and secretions that the mites leave behind on textiles and surfaces.
As dust mites are spider-like organisms, that produce around twenty waste droppings each every day, this can cause significant problems! But there is an easy to prevent airborne allergies caused by this.
Can Dust Mite Allergy Go Away?
House dust mites are found in most houses and other buildings, all year round. They thrive in dust particles that float in the air and in soft furnishings such as bedding, carpets, upholstery and curtains. One mattress can contain tens of thousands of dust mites.
The problem is, dust mites are too small to see without a microscope. But many homes are breeding grounds because they thrive in warm, humid environments. They thrive in dust particles that float in the air and in textiles such as bedding, upholstered furniture, children’s stuffed toys and carpets. They feed on skin flakes from humans and pets, so have a constant food supply. One mattress alone can contain nearly 2 million dust mites (It’s best not to think about it!)
What Helps with Dust Mite Allergy?
As with many illnesses, prevention is better than cure: Simply reduce the number of dust mites in your indoor environment. This immediately helps to reduce your symptoms and can also reduce your need for anti-allergy medication.
How to Prevent Airborne Allergies – Probiotic Research Study
- Reduce 43% of dust mite allergens in one hour.
The Provilan Air Optimiser Diffusor Report – Pollen shows that these probiotic air optimisers can also:
- Reduce 20% of pollen allergens in one hour.
Allergens continued to reduce by up to 70% over the next 72 hours.
The Air Optimiser contains healthy ‘good’ bacteria (probiotics), from plants. These helpful probiotics are live microorganisms that simply consume the organic allergens – in this case dust mite poop – as a natural food source.
The study used a Probiotic Air Diffuser to continually diffuse probiotics into the indoor air. These are available in ‘table top’ versions and can also be added to your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Please contact us for prices and more information.
However, the same innovative biotechnology is also available as an easy-to-use natural spray for dust mite allergy. Simply spray into air and onto textiles, furniture and bedding:
The helpful probiotics also help to restore healthy balance (microbiome) to your indoor environment at a microbial level. A healthy microbiome is known to support well-being and immunity.
