Air

Healthy Living: Air

You may be surprised to find out that indoor air routinely contains a higher level of chemicals than outdoor air. There are several simple steps that can be taken to improve indoor air quality. Of particular importance is the bedroom environment, since each person spends between 7- 10 hours there each day.

What you can do:

  • Open windows whenever possible to circulate air.
  • Clean indoor air with plants and air filters. Plants help to oxygenate the air we breathe, while filters help to remove impurities from indoor air.
  • Change the filter in your residential furnace and air conditioning system regularly. The Filtrete Ultra Allergen filter is endorsed by the American Lung Association and has a recommended change interval of three months.
  • If possible, replace carpet in the bedroom with wood floors. Carpet collects molds, fungi and other respiratory irritants. If you do have carpeting, vacuum regularly.
  • Avoid sleeping in a room that has been recently carpeted. New carpet releases harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde into the air. Open windows and air the room out for at least a week before sleeping in it. Better yet, have new carpet installed while on vacation!

Whenever possible, use nontoxic building materials and carpets.
If you have clothes that have been recently dry-cleaned, don't hang them in your bedroom.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I would like to thank Dr. John for helping me get moving again. If it wasn't for your help I'd still be sockless. I'd also like to thank Dr. Audrey for introducing me to the nearly instantaneous relief of acupuncture and helping me walk without pain again. You two have to be the most caring couple ever. I would have never gotten this far if it wasn't for the two of you. I can't thank you enough."

  • "For years I suffered with foot pain that made each step a misery. Dr. John found the problem and he has helped me fix it. Getting customized orthotics for my shoes was an improvement and a treatment plan for my feet keeps me going completely pain free. I really like how Dr. John's office can accommodate my busy work schedule to fit in my treatments."

  • "I have seen chiropractors all my life. Some chiropractors can be very rushed or very rigid in terms of what types of care they will offer or recommend. The care I received at this office was above and beyond anything I had before. I appreciate the availability and the consistency of care options."
    A.D., Winnipeg/Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • "When I had my car accident, I was shocked at how much pain I was in. I could barely move my neck. Dr. Audrey was there for me. I was surprised at the effect that chiropractic care had on helping me to recover. It seemed that when I would start to stiffen up again, chiropractic treatment would settle things down right away. And this was a really good thing because I couldn't afford to miss opportunities or any time from work. That was two years ago. Even now that the accident case has closed I still see Dr. Audrey every month or two just to keep feeling good."
