Allergies & Breathing
Asthma & Allergies
Allergies are caused by the body’s immune system reacting against substances that are usually harmless. Common allergies include both pollen and dust mite allergies.
An allergy to pollen is referred to as hay fever. Hay fever usually only occurs during the warmer months, from March to September, as there is more pollen in the air during these times. When during the year you experience symptoms depends on which particular plant pollen(s) you are allergic to and when these plants are in pollination. Symptoms of hay fever include sneezing, a runny nose and itchy eyes, and in some people can also cause breathing difficulties.
Natural remedies for hay fever
Tower Health are experts in natural health, so we offer a variety of natural health remedies to help alleviate the symptoms of asthma and allergies. We sell a nasal spray called Otosan, which contains sea water from Brittany, essential oils and organic plant extracts. We also sell Olbas Oil, which is a well-known natural treatment for a blocked nose.
Dust mite allergy
Another common allergy, sometimes referred to as “home fever”, is dust mite allergy. If you find you are constantly sneezing or experiencing other allergy symptoms in your home, it may be because of dust mites.
Dust mites are microscopic creatures that typically live in warm, moist environments, such as beds. They feed on the skin cells we shed, dust (hence the name “dust mites”) and thrive in places like beds because of our body heat and sweat.
Although dust mites are generally harmless, in some people, they cause allergic reactions. Their droppings in particular are a strong allergen.
Dealing with dust mites
To keep your dust mite allergy at bay, you need to make sure you keep your house nice and clean. As dust mites tend to live in our beds, you need to wash your sheets on a regular basis and also keep your mattress clean. We cell a special mattress cleaner that helps get rid of mites.
We also cell a plug in dust mite controller that you can put in your room, and a portable version for when you are on the go. The controller emits an ultrasonic sound to help deter dust mites.
