This blog is centrally focused on consumption of nutritious and delicious recipes that exclude common allergens. But it is important to point out that even though you may not be directly consuming a food allergy, you could still be consuming allergens through other methods like simply breathing. On average, a single person takes about 20,000 breaths a day, and if the air is polluted with any toxin or natural allergy, chances are high that one of these breaths will intake an allergen. It is very hard to monitor the air you breathe 24/7 throughout all the different places you may be during the day, but you can manage your environment well when you sleep at night. When I was in the Philippines, the area I was in was highly polluted and the ventilation system in my room was unable to filter out much of the pollutants.
Breathing in air with higher humidity is one way to relieve symptoms and allergies which is why I decided to utilize a humidifier. A humidifier is an electric device that pumps moisture into the air which prevents an allergen from traveling far. I would suggest using a humidifier regardless of your location, especially if your room may contain dust, pollen from open windows, indoor pets. Studies show that the optimum level of humidification in a room to be effective is between 40-50%. It is possible for it to be too humid and facilitate an environment for mold and dust mites. It is also important to remember that humidifiers cannot cure allergies, however they can help with symptoms.
