ImmunizeLABS Breathe Easy nasal spray review

IMG_0232

Recently my immunologist advised doing a nasal spray versus pill when treating my sinuses and allergies. He explained how the majority of infection is coming through the nose and it is best absorbed at the source.  Since then, I’ve treated my sinuses with a nasal spray.  I also have migraine medication that is a nasal spray that works quickly and avoids me throwing up the pill.  Therefore, in my case, nasal sprays seem to be the best for treatment and prevention of both sinus related issues and migraine.

Because of this advice, I have been trying Breathe Easy nasal spray.  I was given this product 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. It claims to provide relief for hives, Sinusitis, Migraine, Allergies and rash. 

 “ImmunizeLABS is a new perspective on how to deal with chronic illnesses and help boost your natural immune defenses reducing the chances of getting sick….[Their] products are based on fairly straightforward ingredients that have been tested by the medical community over the last 50 years. The breakthrough has been in the delivery process that allows the supplements to be absorbed and not digested, thus dramatically raising the absorption rate, efficiency and reducing gastric distress.”

What I like about Breathe easy is that I know the ingredients listed.  How many times do you look at a label and not understand what is?  I am happy I recognize the ingredients and ImmunizeLABS goes the next step to explain how each specifically treats and prevents cold, allergy, headache or other nasal and throat related issues.  Some ingredients include sea salt, cayenne pepper, horseradish, wintergreen, oregano, lemon oil, rosemary oil and more.  Although these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA, references have been provided for each ingredient supporting their claims.

What I found interesting was the use of ionic and colloidal silver.  I have been reading about cleaning towels that have collodial silver in them and how it naturally is antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal eliminating the need for harsh chemicals.  I’m looking to eliminate toxins in my cleaning and especially in my body.  It is also anti-inflammatory which is an element I look for when treating and preventing both my migraines and allergies.

The story behind ImmunizeLABS is about healing.  It’s about health and wellness without relying on medication and building the immune system.  Like many of us, it was made out of desperation of feeling and being better without flooding the body with toxins.  They made a supplement protocol and did extensive tests on themselves and found life changing results.  They now share their journey and have made their health solutions available.  They offer more than just nasal spray.  They sell a variety of products that can be found here.

Overall, I love the idea of switching my sinus nasal spray to a natural preventative nasal spray that can help sinus, allergy and migraine.  I do two sprays in each nostril at bedtime and when waking.  Both morning and evenings are my highest spikes in migraine and I have felt a difference with using Breathe Easy.  I will be bringing it with me when I travel as I always get sick from air plane travel and change of climate.  I look forward to feeling a difference in my immune system with continued use and am grateful that I found another nontoxic way to treat and prevent my symptoms.

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?
