An article in “Atmospheric Environment”: microbes and allergens that normally float in moist air will settle and stick to the moisture of our skin and sinuses when the air is dry. This, in turn, increases the risk of infection and asthma.
The article goes on to describe several high tech and expensive ionization systems. In the end, the simple solution is to have a humidifier. My rule of thumb is this: If the heat is on, put on the humidifier.
There is quite a range of options here. While I love my fancy ultrasonic machine, with a bit of maintenance, a simple vaporizer does the trick. Recently, I even found an excellent low maintenance, anti-bacterial, ultrasonic humidifier at Walgreen’s Drug Store for under $45.
As a Chiropractor, I see a variety of patients with chronic health issues. While the FDA puts out a number of medications for the purpose of mitigating these ills, many of these FDA approved drugs have had disappointing results, a variety of debilitating side-effects, and we have yet to see the damage they reap in our bodies over the long term.
In the Health Section of The New York Times http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/06/25/combating-acid-reflux-may-bring-host-of-ills/, I was glad to read that health officials are FINALLY recognizing the adverse effects of Acid Reflux medication. The fact is, the stomach needs to produce acid in order to properly digest foods and absorb their nutrients. It turns out that in many cases, acid reflux medications like Prevacid and Nexium often reduce the absorption of vital nutrients like B12, magnesium, and calcium. Even more problematic, these medicines create dependancies that are difficult to break.
I choose to provide my patients with natural, or what I call “Wholistic” solutions for their digestive health.
The body’s not stupid. Its an incredible machine of nature, and requires natural care. Incompletely digested proteins can get into the blood stream and trigger mild to severe allergies of all kinds. The focus of my care to truly address these digestive/ allergy issues so that you won’t have to resort to being a guinea pig for the FDA.

Joe Tanis wrote a recommendation for Union Square Spinal Care:
“I am doing Lenny’s allergy treatment. I have been suffering from serious allergies for years, especially to cats. Friday I did the treatment for cats and Saturday I went to my girlfriends house and slept calmly for the first time with no problems. Usually I feel like someone is jamming a hose into my lungs and constantly filling them with sludge because of her cat. I am truly amazed. Phaedra and I both thank you as I have been miserable and she has been miserable watching me suffer. If you have allergies that rule your life talk to Lenny.”
"Thank you Dr. Lenny, I can breathe! No more sneezing fits, no more
itching throat attacks! I truly can't believe it, it worked almost
immediately. To start, I am basically allergic to air. Have been for
19 years. This spring I returned to the city at peak bloom. I was
chronic, waking up in the the middle of the night with severe allergy
attacks. My allergies have always and inevitably led me to severe colds
and sinus infections as a result. At the very least, I am usually
exhausted, cloudy headed, and constantly feel like I am coming down
with something. About a week after my first BAX treatment I saw
incredible results. I am sleeping with my window open-unheard of! No
sneezing, and no itching throat. No stuffy nose. The cloudy head is
gone because I am not being triggered. Just the other day I was
around the typical allergy sufferer's chat about the ridiculous high
pollen day and how everyone in town was just dying. Not me! I could
hardly believe I was not a part of this conversation. I am so
grateful for your work with the BAX-3000 treatment. Just a month
ago I would have said this sounds too good to be true. If I sound
over the top, it's because I am left in shock from the results. True
allergy sufferer's only dream of this kind of relief. I did."
