If you suffer from allergy problems, chances are you’ve already spent a small fortune on antihistamines, supplements, eyedrops… You name it, you’ve probably got it. But all the treatments in the world won’t give you much allergy relief if you’re living in a virtual allergy minefield! Bedding, furnishings, carpets, fur-kids, even the air you breathe - all of these things can harbour nasties which can create havoc for allergy sufferers. But making changes to your home environment can make one humongous difference.
Best of all, allergy-proofing your home is natural, safe and extremely effective. So let’s do this!
First up, let’s look at where you live. Now, some desperate allergy sufferers are willing to do anything, even pick up and move home to find relief from allergies. But this is not always practical – or recommended. The fact is, some of these people will find they develop new allergies in their new surrounds.
So take a deep breath and take “move home” off your list.
Now, you can exercise common sense caution if looking for a new home: avoid living near freeways, major roads or industrial parks. The reason? Environmental urban chemicals, such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and ozone can worsen allergies.

House cleaning tips:
An air purifier could be your new best friend if you suffer from dust or dust mite allergies. The Salin Plus device helps allergy sufferers in two ways: it simultaneously removes allergens such as dust, dust mites, pollen and pet dander from the air (like a regular air purifier) while also releasing tiny salt particles into the air. Once inhaled, the dry salt particles help soothe the respiratory passages and eliminate mucus.
The device is easy to use. Lightweight, quiet and compact, just plug the device into a wall and place it near your bed. The daily recommended usage is 6 to 10 hours, so it’s perfect to use at night while you sleep.
Salin Plus has two devices available: the regular device, Salin Plus Salt Therapy Device,supports a room of up to 150 m³. The smaller device, Salin Salt Therapy Device, supports a room of up to 40 m³, so it’s perfect for small rooms and offices, and a brilliant travel companion!
Both Salt Therapy devices areavailable online here. There’s a 60-day money back guarantee for the Salin Plus device and free shipping for all orders over $50 within Australia!
Keeping any moisture in the home at bay is imperative for those with a mould allergy.
Your garden may have a strong impact on your allergies, so it’s important to consider what and where you position your plants and trees:
Without a doubt, taking the time to allergy-proof your home is time well spent. But if you don’t make the effort, life will continue to be an uphill battle, rather than a walk in the park - or should we say – a saunter through a sniff-free zone.
