EnviroKlenz review, products for chemical sensitivity and allergies

As a follow-up to Migraine and Allergies I have changed a few things in my house to lessen our allergens.

·         For the summer, we will keep the windows closed and use the air conditioning

·         We take our shoes off when entering the house and wash hands immediately

·         When coming in from playing outside, my son showers and changes his clothes before bed and nap

·         All beds are covered with allergen pillow cases and bed sheets

·         We installed a new HVAC air cartridge

I was given the HVAC air cartridge as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.

 

EnviroKlenz Natural Cleaning Products

The first thing that struck me about EnviroKlenz, was the variety of products I can use in my home.  They are geared for chemically sensitive like myself, along with those with allergies and suffer from respiratory problems like my son.  I have a lot of problems with many cleaning agents that trigger my migraines through smell and harsh chemicals and generally look for natural cleaners and eco-friendly cleaning products. I don’t like my children and dog smelling fumes so EnviroKlenz sounded like what I need for my house.

Being very sensitive to odor, a mom and pet owner I was interested in their odor neutralizer and eliminator.  The neutralizer is a green cleaning product that can be used for cleaning and removing vomit odor, spills and odors from carpets and solid surfaces, liquid spills in cars, pet mess, pet urine and more. 

I was also drawn in by the laundry enhancers. EnviroKlenz works along with normal detergent to enhance its ability to remove tough odors but contains no masking agents or fragrances.

The product I chose to review was the HVAC air cartridge. I was most excited about how the air cartridge removes VOCs and odors from my home. 

What are VOCs?

“Volatile organic chemicals (VOC) encompass a wide range of compounds. These chemicals range from slightly hazardous organic solvents up to highly toxic and corrosive acids. They can be found in most industrial and household settings, and can pose a serious hazard for a prolonged period of time in an indoor environment. In addition to organic compounds, there are also a wide range of additional toxic volatile compounds which are commonly found in the home.”

EnviroKlenz HVAC filter destroys noxious chemicals and odors.  It is a non toxic air cleaning product.  Their HVAC filter neutralizes odors and VOCs preventing them from returning into indoor air space.  Their products are made from metal oxides which are considered safe compounds found in safe consumer and food products.

I feel at ease knowing my HVAC air cartridge is providing me with clean air.  At home, I want my children to be their safest and healthiest being I control their environment and what’s in it.  With EnviroKlenz I have taken one step closer to doing so.

I recommend EnviroKlenz for anyone looking for odor elimination products, air purifier for allergies and eco-friendly home products. 

 What do you do to lessen the allergens in you home?

The Fay Farm Rejuvenation Lotion review

fullsizerender

I was given the opportunity to try Fay Farm Rejuvenation lotion as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network.  Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review may remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.

I had the opportunity to try Rejuvenation Lotion by Fay Farm and really love it for my neck and shoulder pain related to Migraines.  “Rejuvenation Lotion is made with all organic ingredients and is paraben and phthalate free. Great for use on sore, aching muscles. Loved by people suffering from fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathy and other deep joint and muscle pain. Magnesium Oil provides deeper relief.” http://thefayfarm.com/

I love it!  I’m always looking for new ways to treat myself organically and naturally.  The Rejuvenation lotion is a soft, lightly fragrant lotion that goes on without being greasy.  I suffer from neck and shoulder pain leading into the base of my head and up.  I use the lotion on my shoulders and rub it as far into my hair line as I can get and on my temples and forehead.  It is relaxing and seems to help my tense aching muscles quickly.  It doesn’t have the medicine smell and burning that many rubs do and a little goes a long way.

The Fay Farm is run by a family dedicated to creating quality natural body care products. They use milk from their herd of Nubian goats and herbs from their greenhouse from their sustainable organic farm.  None of the products contain parabens, alcohol, mineral oil, or phthalates. Knowing that I’m putting a product on my skin that was made by a passionate family using their organic farm makes using their products even better!

As with most healthy, natural, hand crafted products, there comes a cost.  I find the products to be a bit pricey but comparable to other health products.  When choosing my products, I consider quality and how it will impact my health.  A cheaper lotion may fit a better budget but will add chemicals and toxins to my sensitive system.  Cheap products are not worth triggering a migraine or inflaming my aching muscles with toxic chemicals.  Fay Farm rejuvenation lotion is worth not only the quality of product but the peace of mind that it carries with it.

Barre3, exercise, migraines and my road to bettering myself

This week I’m talking about how I eat and exercise. I have NOT been endorsed or paid by Barre3. This is just what I do and I thought I’d share it with you. I have used their ideas on food and workout at their studios and online. I encourage you all to find something that makes you feel better. What do you do to exercise with migraines or how do you eat to help yourself?

My Migraine Life

IMG_5400Many people ask me what I do for exercise while suffering with chronic migraines.  The real answer is that if my migraine is above a 7 I can barely do anything.  I do, however, try to move my body and workout preventatively to provide faster recovery and better overall health when I can.

As a teenager I was a three sport athlete.  Although I learned countless lessons from being on a team, as an adult I am not serving a volleyball, running bases, or shooting a 3 pointer in my everyday life.  My reason for working out was to win and now it’s to be healthier.

When I found Barre3, I found a new way of looking at fitness and my body.  Barre3 is a combination of Pilates, yoga, and ballet.  It focuses on functional movement.  They say that your workout should carry you throughout the day making you taller…
