Winter Time Respiratory Health

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.

Relief from Cat Allergies Improves Relationship!

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.”
