Following simple strategies, you will learn different techniques designed to help lessen or eliminate some of the many irritants that cause allergies and asthma. By lessening some of these irritants in your environment, you can create what I refer to as a 'free zone' where you can escape some of the toxins that stimulate the respiratory responses of allergy attack and asthma attack. An area that is clean and fresh where you can retreat to when you need relief, the main goal to at least reduce or even possibly eliminate medications, and yet breathe easier.
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of creating a 'free zone' in your home. The most logical area to choose would be where you spend the most time. More than likely that would be the bedroom. The average person spends approximately one third of their lifetime sleeping. Someone not working may choose the living or family room, while a work at home person might choose their home office. Whichever area you choose, this room needs to be as clean and dust free as possible.
Although the task may seem daunting at first, once you have established your new sanctuary, it will indeed become second nature and you will thank yourself for your new escape area where you can breathe and rest easy. Utilizing natural allergy relief, many common allergies can be greatly reduced, sometimes even eliminating the need for antihistamines.
