My husband has unfortunately always been an allergy sufferer.
He tells me stories about how it affected him even as a young child.
The stories are hard for me to listen to because it sounds like he was miserable all the time. As he got older and not much had changed, and he still suffers from his allergies nearly as badly now. His allergies come and go with the seasons and some days he has almost no allergies, other days he is constantly having streaming eyes, a runny nose, and non-stop sneezing. We have been to several doctors but it doesn’t seem like anyone can really give him a permanent solution. He takes medications but they only treat the symptoms. Unfortunately for us it doesn’t seem like there is a cure. However, that is what we thought. It turns out that we were wrong and there was a solution all this time after all. The crazy thing is, that the solution was right under our nose! It wasn’t until I meant a co-worker that also had allergies that they told me how they managed them. They told me that they used a HEPA filter. I didn’t even know what HEPA filter was and I asked them to explain it to me and they told me that it was a special kind of air filter that you can get from your local heating and cooling business. They explained how it attaches to your HVAC system and it does a thorough job of filtering all of the dirt and grime in your air. I was unaware of it, however, apparently your indoor air quality can have a big impact on your health. We decided it would be a good idea to get my husband a HEPA filter, and as it would turn out this was the best decision for him. Thanks to the HEPA filter his allergies were nearly eliminated and he can live a much happier life.
