Allergy free living at home may seem out of reach for those suffering from lingering symptoms such as itchy eyes, hives, sneezing, even difficulties breathing. Most of us have dealt with allergies at some point in our lives. If not, you may count yourself as one of the lucky few as researchers believe that nasal allergies may affect roughly 50 million people in the U.S; this doesn’t even include other allergy types, such as skin, food, and drug allergies.
Not all allergies are completely curable, but there are many steps, outside of prescription or over-the-counter medications that you can take to relieve and remedy your allergies in a natural way. Learn more about different ways to naturally live allergy free at home!
Allergy Types and Symptoms
The first step to naturally relive allergies is to find the source, or sources, of the allergens. Allergies can enter your body and cause symptoms in many different ways: inhaled through your nose and into your lungs, ingested by mouth, by injection (like medicine through a needle or insect sting), or through absorption (plants like poison ivy or other materials).more...
Decorating your bedroom can be overwhelming if you're not sure where to start. Making a decision on what bedding is perfect for you can be a tough decision. Deciding on color scheme, design, quality, customer reviews, and of course the price can and/will determine your shopping strategy. Think back to a time you walked into a fresh, clean luxury hotel room or resort and remember how it made you feel. Every item had a specific purpose by design, from the silky smooth, crisp bed sheets, to the super soft, plush bath towels. Let's not forget about the bed, probably the best bed you've ever slept on. More than likely it was a soft, cozy, and refreshing experience, from the mattress pad down to the bed sheets.
A well-designed bedroom should inspire you visually, relax you mentally, and compliment your personality. Imagine if you could bring that same hotel feeling home, experience that same level of comfort, cleanliness, and refreshing feeling every morning. In just a few simple steps you can bring that same luxury feeling home to your own bedroom.more...
Decorating your home with indoor plants and greenery is trending everywhere at the moment, especially with millennials. However, you don't have to be in the cool crowd to appreciate the many benefits of having a plethora of plants around the house. Creating a mini jungle, or even just adding one or two plants, can have great effects on your air quality, health, and more.
Back in elementary school science class we learned that plants need carbon dioxide to 'breathe'. This works perfect for us because we need the oxygen that plants provide, and in return we exhale the carbon dioxide that they need to survive. In addition to clearing the air of all that extra carbon dioxide, did you know that plants also act like a sponge to naturally remove toxic compounds? They either absorb them or break them down into harmless by-products! A recent NASA study found that some plants can eliminate up to 87 percent of indoor air pollution in a day!more...
