If you’re one of about 50 million people in the United States who suffers from allergies, the recent change in the seasons may have led you to question, “Are my allergies getting worse?” Although you may have convinced yourself that it’s all in your head, the fact of the matter is there’s some truth to this perception.
In recent years, climate change and rising temperatures have caused trees, grass and flowers to produce an excess of pollen that is exacerbating allergies among sufferers across the nation. Further validating this claim, Dr. Sunil Perera, a Sacramento allergist and immunologist, stated that this year’s pollen conditions are worse than they’ve ever been, as the production of tree pollen grew three-fold from 2016 to 2017.
So, what happens when you open up your windows to get some fresh air, or track in a bit of pollen after taking the dog for a walk? Allergies are bad enough to deal with when you’re out in nature, but your home should be a place of comfort and relaxation, not congestion and headaches.
Poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) often significantly exacerbates season allergies and asthma as common allergens get trapped within confined spaces. For allergy sufferers living in such an environment, it can feel as though there is nowhere to get relief, potentially leading to serious health complications. In fact, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), allergies are the sixth-leading cause of chronic illness in the United States, with an annual cost that exceeds $18 billion.
As pollen, dust and pet dander run rampant throughout your home, these allergies can become magnified if not safely and thoroughly eliminated. Sure, you could take daily antihistamine medications, or even perhaps immunotherapy for severe allergy symptoms, but there must be a better, and safer way.
