Allergy Symptoms Reduced with a Pillow Device
Those who suffer from allergy and asthma symptoms at nighttime have a reason to cheer. PureZone Technologies has developed a pillow device to reduce these symptoms, allowing a more sound sleep symptom- free. The PureZone HEPA Sleep System creates an allergen-free environment without having to make the difficult changes in order to eliminate the causative agents.
The PureZone HEPA Sleep System makes an air bubble around the person’s pillow. This simple system has been shown to remove 99.97 percent of allergens that surround the mouth and nose. Researchers collected ratings from study participants, both those with the actual pillow device and those with the placebo. These ratings were on congestion, itching, sneezing, secretion, and any eye problems every day the participants woke up and when they went to bed. With this therapy alone, 89 percent of participants reported a significant improvement in their allergy symptoms, along with improving the quality of life. Dr. Allan Stillerman, Board Certified Allergist, conducted this study of the first environmental control device to show significant improvement at the Research Institute of Minneapolis. The study will be published today in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology.
The Sleep System uses a HEPA filter to remove the allergens from the air. A person with allergies is prone to four different types of allergens, according to PureZone. These are dust mites, pet dander, pollutants, and mold. Traditionally, rooms had to be stripped of possible sources of these allergens. This still may not be as effective as it can be. With PureZone HEPA Sleep System, all of these allergens are blocked and then the air is purified giving relief to both allergies sufferers and asthma victims.
The system is easy to use. A special pillow case covers the person’s own pillow. The unit is placed on the side of the bed with a bedside mounting bracket. The charged HEPA filter removes airborne allergens and pollutants. Then purified air is passed up through the pillowcase which creates the air bubble that is an allergen-free breathing zone. The unit also can adjust to cooling or warming levels. The fan is also relatively quiet, coupled with soothing white noise to allow for easy sleep.
Right now PureZone Technologies is offering a 30-day risk free trial for $99 with full refund of the cost if not to your satisfaction. If you are happy with the unit, then more will be charged to you for a total of around $337. However, the good news is this device may be eligible for FSA and HSA reimbursement. Accessories are also available, such as more pillowcases and HEPA filters. For those who suffer from allergy symptoms, this sleep system may be just the answer they are searching for in order to obtain a restful night’s sleep.
