A Healthy you this Winter

Something is in the air. Whether you’ve experienced it yourself, or if you’re one of the lucky few who has managed to stay healthy, it appears that the cold or flu has been going around, yet again, this winter.

One of the causes of the “healthy getting unhealthy” is the lack of air circulation during the winter. With closed windows and doors, you and your cubicle partner are sharing more things than your desk. One way to combat poor air quality is to keep your environment clean and bring some freshness into your air by cracking a window or using an air purifier.


Are your Allergy Symptoms Worse Before or After Rain?

Winter rain typically brings relief to many parts of the United States, so when the air is clear and free of clouds, it may come as a surprise that many of us still exhibit allergy symptoms.

During rainstorms, the rain can break up pollen particles and make them smaller. The humidity from the rain can also cause mold spores to increase. Since these irritants will come into your home, if your local weatherman calls for rain, we suggest closing your windows and making sure your air purifier is on.

How to have an Asthma Friendly Home

  1. Remove airborne allergens with a high-powered true HEPA air purifier.
  2. Keep windows and doors closed to prevent entry of pollutants.
  3. Wear a mask when doing yard work to avoid inhaling pollen.
  4. Use a dehumidifier to keep your air between 35-50% humidity.
  5. Vacuum once or twice a week to keep allergens to a minimum.
  6. Clean your air ducts and change the fitlers before turning on your heater for the first time.

For more suggestions on how to make your home asthma friendly, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has a useful checklist for families that can be downloaded on their website. You can also find products that have been certified by the AAFA as being asthma and allergy friendly, such as the Rabbit Air MinusA2 air purifier.


Hidden Mold in Leaves

If you plan on doing any yard work outside, be sure to wear a mask and gloves while raking and avoid contact with the face. Keep an eye on leaves that have been sitting for awhile, as they can become damp, which mold thrives in. Lastly, it's also important to keep windows and doors closed, as mold can easily enter your home, which can create other issues as well.

Summer Camp 101

With the school year coming to an end, many students are eager to trade in their books for sports equipments, camping gear and outdoor fun at summer camps. This fun and exciting time is great for creating memories, learning new skills and forming lasting friendships.

If you’re ready to sign your child up for summer camp, and they have food allergies, it is best to have a plan with the camp administration and staff. One useful tool is the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan, a downloadable guide to keep on hand and to share in case your child needs assistance. Ultimately, education and providing information on how to handle and prevent allergic reactions are ways to stay proactive so that your child may have an enjoyable camping experience.

Another “Worst Pollen Season” Ever Predicted

Although we officially welcomed spring back into our lives last month, for some of us, it felt like spring had arrived early…as in a few months ago. For those who have been experiencing the tell-tale signs of spring allergy symptoms, there was no welcome wagon for the warm weather. Why is this happening you ask? Due to El Nino and the warmer weather patterns, flowers and plants bloomed early this year and released heavier pollen counts than ever.

So what does this mean for you? Prevention and awareness will determine how severe your allergy symptoms are this spring, so before your symptoms escalate on the verge of unbearable, be sure to speak with your allergist on ways that you can create a more enjoyable spring this year.


Deciphering “May Contain”

When reading the caution labels on the back of packages, do they leave you scratching your head and more confused than confident? If so, you are not alone and there is help!

Aside from labeling the obvious ingredients that are found in the packaged good, you can now find additional information, such as other allergenic food that may have come into contact with the product. But something to keep in mind is that advisory labels are not required under labeling regulations in the United States, so if you have any questions, it’s best to contact the manufacturer directly.


When Nighttime Coughing Keeps you Awake

After a long day, almost nothing is more peaceful than resting your head on your pillow at night, but if constant coughing is causing a disruption to your dreamy bliss, it’s time to learn what may be causing those symptoms.

Nighttime coughing may be due to sinusitis, acid reflux or even asthma, so if coughing is keeping you awake, it may be time to see your doctor.

Managing Your Winter Allergies

As the weather turns chilly and we find comfort in our warm homes, indoor allergies may be the unwelcomed visitor this winter. But fear not, for there are ways to diminish your winter allergy symptoms and prevent them from ruining the start of your new year.

As is almost always the case, the cleaner your home, the less dust and airborne particles there will be to trigger allergy symptoms. Using an air purifier is also helpful to freshen up the air and reduce allergens.



Help! Is it the Cold or Allergies?

Like peas and carrots, winter and the cold seem destined to be connected to each other, but are your symptoms due to the cold, or allergies? There are some symptoms that are usually associated with allergies, but not with the cold, such as sneezing and itchy eyes, so if you have the sniffles for more what seems like weeks, then you may have allergies, not the cold.

Of course, it’s best to seek a professional before assuming you have allergies, so if you have symptoms for more than 2 weeks, it’s best to make an appointment with a doctor.



Indoor Air Quality and You

You may have heard the term indoor air quality used here and there, but what does IAQ really mean? Also, why is it important and are there ways to improve your air quality? Thankfully, there is!

To learn about indoor air quality and how it can affect your health, our informative Rabbit Air blog may have the answers that you’re looking for.

Are Your Allergies Ready for the New School Year?

College freshmen setting their sites for school have many new adventures to look forward to, but wasting precious time due to allergy and asthma symptoms can ruin any experience. Before bidding adieu for college, here are a few tips to help manage your first year and make it a memorable one.

Keeping You and Your Furry Friends Happy

It happens. You bring home your new pet and within hours, you're sneezing and experiencing some unpleasant symptoms. Or maybe you've had your beloved pet for years, when suddenly you start to notice more tissues in the bin. This is heartbreaking for many owners, but the silver lining is that with some  changes to your home and some maintenance to your pet, your bond can remain as strong as ever.

The Health Dangers of Forest Fires

With the recent onslaught of fires in California, their impact to our health is a cause of worry for many. Although the immediate repercussions of a fire are very much visible in the charred remains of homes, trees and forest, the invisible particles, such as carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds that become airborne should also be viewed as a danger.

To combat airborne particles and to learn more about cleaner air, our Rabbit Air blog post is a must read.

How Summer Affects the Zzz’s

Summer means longer days, more outdoor activities and later nights; three things that most people welcome. But can too much fun be disrupting your sleep?

  • Light and Noise: For many of us who need some early shut-eye, you may find it difficult to drift to sleep due to the extra sunlight. If you’re in need of some assistance, blackout shades are recommended to make your room as dark as possible, which also double as a sound barrier between you and your joyful neighbors. Not enough? A sound machine or ear plugs may also help.
  • Vacation: Need to get away? While a much-needed break can rejuvenate your soul, experts suggest sleeping at least one hour from your normal sleeping time so that your body can adjust once you come back to reality.
  • Allergies: While spring and fall get their fair share of publicity, allergy sufferers should also be aware of pollen and ragweed during the summer. Lack of sleep can make your allergy symptoms much worse, so take the same precautions during the summer as you would the other seasons.

    How Air Pollution Affects Children

    With summer vacation around the corner, children everywhere are eager to ditch their school books and homework for some outdoor fun. While many parents are well aware that children should be active to promotehealthy bone mass, most are not as informed about the effect of air pollution to children’s still developing lungs.

    According to a Southern California Children's Health study, children who were exposed to a higher level of pollutants had a “significantly lower lung function at age 18.” Further studies showed that children who participated in sports while living in a high ozone community, were more likely to develop asthma.

    Checking the air quality before allowing children to play outside can help parents stay informed regarding the air that their family is breathing.

    Indoor Air Quality and Your Health

    What is the importance of indoor air quality? Indoor air quality is the quality of the air in and around your environment as it affects your health and comfort. While some particles can be seen, such as dust, hair and smoke, most indoor pollutants are invisible to the naked eye, such as mold spores, gases, bacteria and chemicals. All of these particles contribute to your indoor air quality, and research has found that there can be immediate, as well as long-term effects of poor air quality.

    Indoor Air Quality

    The effects of indoor air quality is becoming more significant as studies show that the average person spends around 90% of their time indoors. But fear not, for certain methods can be used to improve indoor air quality, such as identifying the main source of the indoor pollutant and removing it from your environment and cleaning with a vacuum that utilizes a HEPA filter. To trap airborne particles, an air purifier with a HEPA filter can not only stop the spread of microscopic particles, but a Charcoal-Based Activated Carbon filter can trap toxins and deodorize your air as well.

Allergies or the Cold?

You might be surprised to learn that your lingering cold symptoms are actually caused by allergies. Allergies are especially troublesome during the spring time, when trees and flowers are releasing their pollen, so if the real culprit is unknown, you can be potentially re-introducing yourself to these particles every day.

While a lay person might not be able to conclusively determine whether they have a cold or allergies, to help differentiate between the two, there are usually certain symptoms associated with each to consider. Since allergy symptoms usually occur right after you’ve been exposed to a certain particulate, such as dust, pollen, or pet dander, symptoms will usually be sneezing, itchiness of the eyes, ears, nose, or mouth, or a runny or stuffy nose.

Although a few cold symptoms coincide with those of allergies, it’s important to note that most colds do not last longer than 2 weeks. If you’re experiencing symptoms longer than that, see your doctor as it might be allergies, or symptoms of another issue.

Spring into Action!

Do you have what it takes to successfully de-winter your home? While it may seem tedious and a bit alarming, with some helpful tips and the proper know-how, you can turn spring cleaning from a chore to an adventure (or at least you can try!).

  • The first step is to de-clutter your rooms. It’s hard to determine what needs to be cleaned if all you see are piles gathered around like little mountains. Place piles in appropriate bins so that you can organize them later.
  • If you’re an allergy sufferer, the right tools can be a life-saver, literally. Use a mask while cleaning and wipe using a damp cloth so that dust doesn’t become airborne. Also, a HEPA vacuum cleaner is recommended so that particles don’t travel back into your environment.
  • Can’t stand chemicals? There are plenty of organic, home-made cleaning products that you can use to give your home a natural and healthy glow. Vinegar anyone?
  • Lastly, it’s not a sprint, so have a plan and be prepared to spend some time in each room to give it that good, deep- cleaning love that each space deserves.

    May is Asthma Awareness Month

    With spring as the peak season for asthma sufferers, the Asthma and Allergy Friendly Association has declared May as National Asthma Awareness Month. Asthma is a chronic lung condition that causes airways to become inflamed and narrowed, making it difficult to breathe. Although there is no cure for asthma, with your support and advocacy, you can help to raise awareness for this disease that affects over 25 million Americans.

    To learn more about asthma, ask your doctor, or go to an asthma informative website, such asGetSmartAboutAsthma.com.

    The Case of the Peanuts

    In a recent study published in The New England Journal of Medicine, scientists found that introducing peanuts at an early age decreased the risk of children developing peanut allergies at a later age.

    In regards to the study, infants between the ages of 4-11 months, who had severe eczema, egg allergy, or both, were initially given a tiny 2-milligram dose of a special peanut flour with their food, which was eventually increased to 800 milligrams. By retraining the immune system to build up a tolerance, after six months of treatment, more than 80 percent of the children could safely eat small amounts of peanuts at a time.

    peanuts

    While it’s easy to feel excitement at the idea of giving your baby peanuts early on, it’s important to note that these tests were administered under strict doctor supervision and while the findings are ground-breaking, there is still further research needed to see if children who participated, would continue to show no effects of a peanut allergy.

Improve Your Sleep Health

Did you know that many Americans don’t get enough sleep? If you are like 48% of us, you know that fact all too well. Lack of sleep can contribute to more than just drowsiness during the day; it affects many parts of our overall health, from stress to heart disease. Make the most of these long winter nights by creating a new sleep hygiene routine to improve your sleep health.

Doctors recommend getting between 7-9 hours of sleep, but there is more that you can do than just getting a couple extra hours of shut eye. Good sleep hygiene can include steps, like turning off electronics an hour before you get into bed, steering clear of the bedroom during the day, and more. Want to know more? Read up on sleep health and hygiene on theRabbit Air blog!

Happy and Healthy Holidays

The holidays are a time when we can show our appreciation and love to our friends, family, and even our animal companions - furred, feathered, or finned. Unfortunately, winter is also a prime time for colds, the flu, and allergic reactions to the mold that thrives during these damp months. Protect your loved ones this holiday season by taking precautions to limit these issues. Help to stem the spread of germs and bacteria by washing your hands frequently, disinfecting surfaces, and covering your mouth if you need to cough or sneeze. You can keep allergies under control by vacuuming carpets and upholstery frequently, and if your home has a Christmas tree, you can help keep mold spores at bay by spraying it with a bleach solutionbefore bringing it inside to decorate. No matter what you celebrate this year, keep it happy and keep it healthy!

Our New Year’s Resolution

As we look forward into the New Year, Rabbit Air invites you make a New Year’s Resolution that will benefit not only your community, but the whole world – lowering your carbon footprint to reduce air pollution. Cleaning up the air is important, and it will only happen if we all work together. Helping to reduce air pollution can be as simple as switching to reusable shopping bags at the market, to bigger pledges, such as taking public transportation instead of using your car one day a week. If we all make little changes in our lives to promote cleaner air, together we can make a big impact. Visit CarbonFund.org for more ideas on how you can help.
