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 when medication stops working?

Several times a year my medication stops working.

To begin with, preventative medications give me terrible side effects.  I tend to stay off them except Botox.  I have been on and off Botox for years and each time it is different in results.  Sometimes it works, other times it seems to make me sick, the next time it may work but wear off early.  I never know.

I use a ton of natural therapies to treat myself and also get a variety of results

  • Massage
  • Acupuncture
  • Sauna
  • Epsom salt baths
  • Ice therapy
  • Restorative Exercise
  • Heat therapy

Depending on the trigger, pain level and situation depends on how much relief I get from natural products.

Abortive medication is taken to decrease a migraine or get rid of one that is existing.

  • Imitrex
  • Zomig
  • Frova
  • Treximet
  • Relpax
  • Amerge
  • Maxalt

Here’s the dilemma with abortive medications….I can only take them so many times per month.  When I have daily headache and migraines it is difficult to judge when to take them.  After taking my medication it usually works.

Occasionally, all of my medication stops working.  I take my abortive, I use natural therapies and products, I use everything as directed and nothing works!  I seem to get into a cycle that will not break no matter what!

Taking too many pain relievers causes rebound migraines so I am careful not to over medicate.  The problem is, I get to a point where everything stops working and I just need to suffer.  After battling for days and days and fighting every way I know how, I finally give up.  I get to a point that I give in to the constant migraine and just wait it out.  I stop poisoning my body with medications that aren’t responding with my body and I try to sleep it off till I can function again.  I run out of options and just wait it out.

Am I the only one who goes through this?
