Air Purification – Nature’s Outdoor Solution Indoors, Clean Fresh Air

Air Purifier For Cancer Prevention And Treatment
By: Diana Ross, Co-Founder of Breast Cancer Yoga.

“Indoor Air Pollution is America’s number one environmental health concern. Fifty percent of all illness is caused by indoor air pollution”. – Environmental Protection Agency. You inhale roughly; 1 liter of air with each breath along with 70,000 particles. Less than one half of one percent of those particles are visible. All of the bad stuff in the air – bacteria, mold, viruses, and pollen -are less than one micron. A smoke particle released in the air at 8 feet will come crashing to the ground 408 days later. That means it’s in your breathing space, along with all of the other pathogens, for months.

If you don’t have an efficient air purification system, you and your family are the air purification system.

Imagine a frying pan of fish cooking on the stove with your ceiling fans running and your air conditioning system circulating the air. Within just a few minutes it is in every nook and cranny of the house. You can’t filter smoke out because the particles are too small. The only way to remove it is to open every door and window in the house and try to vent it. Even after four hours you can still smell the fish smoke.

Vollara Air Purification System From Breast Cancer YogaVollara’s ActivePure technology is recognized as a Certified Space Technology for having effectively applied space-based technology to address the real and growing concern of indoor air pollution for all people on earth. ActivePure’s technology using (RCI) Radiant Catalytic Ionization) that ionization will cause the smoke particles to stick together, get bigger, and fall out of the indoor air 250 times faster. Much like snowflakes float and snowballs crash.

Let’s talk about another technology that’s called oxidation, they are systems sending out invisible plasma of friendly oxidizers. They spread through the house much like the smoke that is coming off that burning frying pan. We take oxygen and water vapor and through the use of a UVX light that activates the honeycomb catalyst we breakdown the oxygen(O2) and water vapor (H2O) that occur naturally in our air to vaporous hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and other friendly oxidizers. These oxidizers have a few things in common. They all occur naturally. They are all combinations of oxygen and hydrogen. And they are all very unstable. As these invisible oxidizers go out, they bump into mold, viruses, bacteria and other pollutants. They oxidize those things and they revert back to water vapor and oxygen which is a very natural process. This process actively cleans the air; it cleans the flush handles, the door knobs, the countertops and then literally every surface in the house, 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week.

If I had influenza and I touch the doorknob that virus will stay viable for 48 hours. Using ActivePure technology with RCI, the virus on the doorknob is up against a 99.9% kill rate in the very first hour.

Bad viruses and other pathogens can evolve against certain antibiotic and antiviral medicines, but they cannot evolve against oxidation.

How often can you wash your Mattress? The reality is you really can’t.

In a book by Dr. Alan Somersall a statistic is presented. He writes that three out of four asthmatics die between 2:00 o’clock and 4:00 o’clock in the morning and it’s because of breathing dust mite feces and bacteria that are imbedded in the pillows and bedding. The worst part of most people’s day is first thing in the morning after getting up. Sinuses are stuffy or clogged and eyes have that nasty crust that forms magically in the middle of the night. Not only is this greatly reduced or eliminated after a bed sanitization, but snoring usually stops and a better and longer night’s sleep is the result.

Snowflakes float and snowballs crash. A smoke particle, at .01 microns, takes 408 days to fall a distance of eight feet and is in your breathing space for four to five months! Remember that every time you inhale a breath of indoor air (about one liter) it contains 70,000 particles composed of dead skin, dust, dust mites, dust mite feces, viruses, bacteria, mold spores, pollen, carcinogenic volatile organic compounds (VOCs), smoke and particulate. If you don’t have an efficient, active advanced air purification system, you and your family become the air purification system.

A huge point about Vollara technology; and this has to do with Nosocomial Infections (occurring in hospitals), MRSA and so called Super Bugs. One thing I love about this technology is that bad viruses and other pathogens can and do evolve against antibiotics and antiviral medicines (and are doing so at an alarming rate), but they cannot evolve against oxidation any more than they can evolve against fire.

The Dangerous Eight Indoor AIR Pollution Triggers – Carbon Monoxide

By Anthony Carvalho – Executive Director Healthy Living Group Corp.

Part II of VIII-Carbon Monoxide

Bacteria, Carbon Monoxide, Dead Skin, Mold, Pollen, Radon, Viruses and VOC’s.
All of the above contributes to Allergies, Asthma, Lung Cancer, Lung Disease, Respiratory Tract Infections and a host of Other Ailments.

Most of us are unaware that the air indoors can be 4 to 5 times more polluted than the air outdoors and in some cases 100 times more polluted. We spend about 95% of our day indoors. When you look at how some of us try to improve our overall health by eating healthy and exercising routinely we ignore our most important source of energy; The Air we Breathe. Air is responsible for over 50% of our energy, more than food and water combined.

I will go over each pollution trigger and solution with each blog posting.

Blog 2- Carbon Monoxide
So where do you start?

First and Foremost make sure you have at least one carbon monoxide detector in each bedroom of your home, it can save your life. It is also recommended that you have one in your basement, garage, living room and any other room you spend any significant amount of time in. Instead of just having a standard smoke alarm I recommend buying a combination carbon monoxide/smoke alarm. Another very important place to have a Carbon monoxide detector is at work.

Carbon monoxide is a gas that’s odorless, colorless and toxic. It is formed anytime there is combustion.

Some of the most common sources are:
barbeque, candles, car/truck, boiler, fire places, Furnace, generator, hot water heaters, gas stove, tobacco smoke.

Here are some dangerous scenarios:

  • Car in an attached garage with auto start is started accidentally by the key fob by a child or inadvertently while in your pocket.
  • Heat is not working and you use a gas stove to try to heat your house.
  • Flue pipe in boiler room rusts and disconnects from the chimney.
  • Your flue pipe becomes clogged due to animals looking for heat or trying to build a nest.
  • A crack develops in your furnace and instead of exhausting the carbon monoxide outdoors it enters your home.
  • Your fire in the fire place goes out and the hot air is no longer forced up the chimney so air starts to make its way down the chimney and keeps the embers smoldering filling your home with carbon monoxide.
  • Carbon monoxide can enter your car while working on your laptop or smart phone while sitting idling or from a hole in your exhaust pipe.
  • Carbon monoxide can also enter your car if you have a vehicle with a back/trunk window open (some SUV’s have this feature where you can drive with the back/trunk window open) causing the exhaust to get sucked back into the car as you drive.

As you can see there are many possibilities for Carbon Monoxide to affect you.

Some of the Symptoms from Carbon Monoxide exposure:
Chest Pain, Blurry Vision, Dizziness, Headache, Nausea, Shortness of Breath, Vomiting, and Weakness.

Higher levels can lead to death. If you are sleeping or have had a few alcoholic beverages you may not experience any symptoms until it’s too late.

What you need to do:

  1. Over 500 people per year die and thousands end up in the hospital every year because of Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
  2. Put a Carbon Monoxide/smoke detector in every room in your home.
  3. Make sure there is a Carbon Monoxide detector at work
  4. Be conscious of anything that requires combustion in how it could release Carbon Monoxide in a confined space.
  5. Inspect all flue piping and chimneys twice a year in your home and or business.
  6. Have your car inspected annually or if involved in any type of car accident regardless of how minor it maybe to see if there are any exhaust leaks.

As you know we all learn by sharing experiences and knowledge. One person can’t know everything, feel free to email me if you have an experiences or ideas to share that can help others.

I will continue to post additional steps on how to improve the air quality in your home.

The key question is? Will you act on it? Most people unfortunately only act on news that will be catastrophic in the short term. If it is a long term issue most people tend to wait until it becomes a more pressing issue. I believe the time is now for us to start improving our health and well being.

10 Ways To A Healthy Breast Cancer Recovery

Diana Ross Founder of Breast Cancer YogaDevelop a healthy lifestyle for breast cancer recovery by incorporating the following healthy steps. A suggested anticancer lifestyle is a lifestyle that includes a variety of exercise, organic foods and clean pure water.  There are a few easy steps to keep your body safe and healthy. Cultivate awareness of what goes into your body; stop and take notice of your habits.  Ask yourself “Is this good or bad for me?  Will it make me feel better or worse?” We all want to feel alive and vital.
Here are some great suggestions

  1. START A YOGA PRACTICE Gentle or restorative yoga poses can be very healing if done with care and awareness. Once you receive clearance from your doctor to begin exercise, a gentle or restorative yoga practice may be very healing in stretching the area of the incision, the calming down of the stress attached to the surgery as well as bringing the ROM, (range of motion) back to the entire area of the chest.
  2. LEARN HOW TO BREATHE Deep breathing is vital; it encourages the release of body toxins, and rebuilds healthy tissue. It is as simple as oxygen helping to nourish the body, the muscles, and organs which then provides relief from stress, fear and anxiety.
  3. TRY TO EAT A PLANT BASED DIET Your diet really does make a difference when it comes to breast cancer prevention and recovery. A plant based diet should be a fundamental part of a healthy cancer free lifestyle. Make your diet rich in organic fruits and vegetables which are duly noted to help prevent breast cancer or other cancers.
  4. DRINK MEDICINAL HERBAL TEAS It is acknowledged in the medical community that herbal remedies do play a vital part of holistic healing for cancers. Herbal teas can aid in cancer symptoms or help build overall health.
  5. USE AROMATHERAPY Lavender hydrosol is thought to have a cooling and soothing effect on sunburns or skin irritations, and it smells so relaxing. Aromatherapy can help you navigate the terrain of your healing journey from surviving to thriving during cancer recovery. Lavender hydrosol can be applied daily to skin to help soothe the mind, body & spirit.
  6. TAKE A BATH IN PINK SALTS Bathing in a warm Himalayan crystal “pink salt” bath for 20+ minutes promotes deep relaxation, and helps to detox your body. This healthy salt bath can be considered as a complementary therapy if used with the intention to restore the body with its active 84 essential minerals and trace minerals. Taking regular saltwater baths with Himalayan pink salt will aid in detoxification, will strengthen the immune system, will heal skin diseases, relieve rheumatism and joint diseases, balance the skin’s pH, and aid in recovery after surgery.
  7. INCLUDE DAILY DRY BRUSHING Dry skin brushing increases circulation to skin, encouraging your body’s discharge of metabolic wastes, which greatly aids the lymphatic drainage of the entire body. When the body rids itself of toxins, it is able to run more efficiently in all areas. Dry brushing increases circulation of the lymphatic system, which helps the body detox through the skin, and other elimination systems within the body.
  8. BREATHE CLEAN AIR There are increasingly more studies that support the findings that everyday products found in our homes and in our water supply is responsible for the rising rates of breast cancer. You can reduce the pollutants in the air with air purification . It is proven that between dust mites, chemical emissions from various products, mold and spores, all of which contribute to higher increase in breast cancer.
  9. USE ALKALINE WATER Advocates of alkaline water claim that by drinking alkaline water you can help to neutralize acid in your bloodstream, increase oxygen levels in your body and your energy level and metabolism. Ionized Water is a powerful antioxidant. Since ionized water is a liquid antioxidant, it is easily absorbed into the body which makes it much more effective and powerful antioxidant.
  10. LOVE YOURSELF The body realizes all the care and love we give it. Bring yourself and your attention into the present moment by slowing down the “mind chatter.” Don’t anticipate negativity or dwell in fear. Stay focused on positive thoughts. Visualize a healthy future; see it, be it. Rent funny movies and laugh; laughter is good medicine. Teach yourself to relax the body. Train the mind to stay focused on the breath.
