tylenol-allergyAs the evidence of the harmful effects of Tylenol increases, there is a growing call for it to be removed from the market. Its active ingredient, acetaminophen, once thought to be an effective and safe pain reliever for adults and children, turns out to have dangerous effects.

A related study by University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center researchers leads with the fact that each year, acetaminophen causes more than 100,000 calls to poison control centers, 50,000 emergency room visits, 26,000 hospitalizations and more than 450 deaths from liver failure. The U.S. Acute Liver Failure Study implicates acetaminophen poisoning in nearly half of all cases of acute liver failure in this country. When taken with alcohol or without food, the detrimental effects on the liver are multiplied.

Doctor of Naturopathy Michael Murray, of Phoenix, Arizona, reports in GreenMedInfo.com that regular use of acetaminophen is linked to a higher likelihood of asthma, infertility and hearing loss, especially in men under 50. Last summer, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning linking acetaminophen use to three rare and sometimes fatal skin conditions.

“Can you imagine if the side effects and risks associated with acetaminophen were associated with a dietary supplement?” opined Murray. “It would be yanked from the market immediately.”

Additional comments from the AllergyReliefExpert.com staff: The bottom line is that all people should be aware of the side-effects of every single drug they put in their mouth because they may not be getting the whole truth from their doctor. As Stan Hall of SickHouseDoctor.com states regularly…”At the end of the day, we are responsible for our own health; not the doctors we tend to put our trust in.”

allergy-preventionThere are many beliefs in the best methods for allergy prevention when compared to the straightforward methods of diagnosing and treating allergies. Here are some of our most important questions with the best answer for allergy prevention.

Can allergies be prevented?
Generally, people who are aware of their problems can avoid offending allergens by not walking or driving in the country during the pollen season; by avoiding drafts and exposure to cold; by minimizing their exposure to house-dust; by trying not to breath the fumes of paint, insecticides or products containing irritants and other allergy symptom triggers. Allergic persons should strive to stay in good physical condition and to avoid emotional tension and fatigue. When they occur, respiratory infections should be taken seriously and treated immediately. It is especially important that parents watch children for allergic tendencies.

Foods are a common cause of allergies in infancy. Breast milk is preferable than cow’s milk in potentially allergic children. Eggs, wheat products and nuts should be added to the diet one at a time, and the child’s reaction should be recorded in a daily log.

Can indoor allergies be prevented?
When it comes to indoor pollutants; bedrooms and frequently used rooms should be kept as dust-free as possible. It is important to utilize HEPA vacuums and air purifiers which clean airborne particles from the air very efficiently. The more they are used, the better the indoor air quality becomes. Having pets such as a dog or cat should be avoided in homes which have an allergy sufferer as animal dander is hard to remove from the indoor environment once they are introduced.

Is good health important to allergy prevention?
Yes, allergy symptoms may be minimized with good health. The best way to achieve and maintain good health is with a balanced diet and a well-rounded program of exercise, recreation and rest. Smoking and drinking can actually set you up for allergy reactions and should be avoided. Although these measures will not cure allergies, they help prevent allergic symptoms by contributing to better resistance.

What are lesser-known allergy triggers?
Allergy scientist state that such emotions such as anxiety, fear, anger and strong excitement can precipitate an allergy attack. This is not to say, however, that these emotions are the physical basis of the allergy; which is real and of primary importance to people with allergies. In general, the allergic sufferer is better off in an atmosphere of calm and confidence. Parents of asthmatic children should as much as possible, maintain an attitude of calm and reassurance. The allergic child for example, should be encouraged to be self-reliant and to take part in family activities as possible.

animal-allergiesAnimal allergies are one of the most common type of reactions allergy sufferers experience worldwide. Here are some of our most important common questions along with the best answer for animal-related allergies.

We had a dog for two years before our son became asthmatic. How could the dog be the cause if the asthma took so long to develop?
No one is allergic to a substance the first time it is encountered; a period of sensitization usually precedes the onset of allergy. Two years is a typical period, though some allergies may appear sooner.

Is it safe to have a pet that does not shed?
The allergen from dogs or cats that causes an allergic reaction is not present in the hair of the animal, but rather in the dander (flakes of the animals skin).

Is it all right to have a pet if it is outside most of the time?
It only takes a few minutes for sufficient dander to accumulate on carpets, furniture and other indoor surfaces. This is why allergic individuals have a problems when a pet is kept outside or even kept in a basement. It should be noted that when the pet is removed from the house, and after thorough cleaning, it may take up to 4 weeks for the dander to dissipate. Cat dander can actually take years to disappear from the indoor environment once introduced.

Can’t I just receive shots for allergy to dogs?
Allergy injections for sensitivity to animal dander are not advisable except in unusual circumstances.  One circumstance is a blind person who becomes allergic to an seeing-eye dog; another is a veterinarian who becomes allergic to animals. The most effective course of action is to remove the pet from the environment.

I have two children who are allergic to pollen and mold. They have never had problems around animal. Is it safe to give them a dog or a cat?
Allergic children are predisposed to allergies to new substances. A Casual encounter, such as visiting friends who have a pet may not be enough to sensitize a child; but continued, massive exposure to a house pet such as a dog or cat may. Unfortunately, this sensitization frequently takes one or two years, which means the new allergy becomes evident just as the net pet becomes an integral part of the family and just when separation can be the most traumatic for the child. The best advice is simply not to have a dog, cat or other fur-bearing animal in the home where a family member is allergic. Some pets that are safe for allergic families are tropical fish, turtles, chameleons, iguanas and snakes.

Air Duct Allergies


Warning: trim() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home/adiffere/public_html/allergyreliefexpert.com/wp-content/plugins/optin-form-adder-lib/include/optin-form-adder.cls.php on line 120

air-duct-allergiesDuct cleaning has grown rapidly as an industry since the 1990’s primarily due to the advertising campaigns utilized by these firms. The average advertising campaign states that indoor air quality problems from dirty ducts are the primary cause of allergies and asthma symptoms.

Dirty Duct Allergies

The fact of the matter is, dirty air ducts are a symptom of a larger problem which exist in most homes throughout the United States. My best analogy to understand the source of the real problem is that; the air ducts are the lungs of the home and if they are getting dirty, then the occupants of the home are breathing dirty air. The real problem is a control problem.

Controlling Allergens

Dirty ducts are simply an outcome of a lack of “particle control” methods. Ducts become dirty from the accumulation of various dust particles which can include airborne allergens. The key to reducing allergy symptoms caused by the typical airborne allergens found in the average home environment, is to implement particle control measures over a period of time. Some of the most common airborne allergens found to cause allergy symptoms are:

  • Tree and Grass Pollen
  • Dust Mites Feces and Mite parts
  • Other insect parts
  • Mold particles

The above allergens listed above are just a few of the many allergens which can be measured in the typical home environment. Here are some tips you can use now which are proven methods for reducing allergy symptoms in the home:

  1. Keep your pets outdoors as much as possible. If you allow them inside, keep them from getting on the furniture and going into your bedroom.
  2. Use a HEPA vacuum for all dust related cleaning in the indoor environment of your home.
  3. Use a HEPA air purifier in the rooms of your home you spend the most time in.
  4. Use high-quality “pleated” filters in your HVAC system.

Relief of your allergy symptoms may be realized within a period of 1-2 months by utilizing the above tips. If you want to get results even faster, then vacuum every single surface you can in the home with a HEPA vacuum daily for the first week and then weekly thereafter. And another plus, you probably will never need to have your ducts cleaned.
