There are many things you can do to prevent and even cure allergies. Here are some simple suggestions:
The basic thing you should change first is to get a high-quality, allergy-free mattress or cover for the mattress and pillows to reduce allergens. Also, wash your bedding in very hot water to prevent build-up and help kill off dust mites. But, be aware that just because a mattress is called organic does not mean that it's non-toxic. It depends on all the materials used. Also, you should look for those made with low eco-impact dyes and finished without chemical softeners or chlorine. See the Allergy-free bedding section.
Natural Cleaning Products
Most home cleaning products contain toxic chemicals and fumes that have been shown to trigger allergic reactions. There are many safe, organic alternatives that work just as well. Think about it.
Clean Your Living Environment
Eliminate allergy-causing pollen and mites from the air by investing in an air purification system that has UV and negative ion filter. If possible, replace carpet with non-toxic wool, hardwood or cork flooring.
This mixture is often called saline solution. You can buy it your local drugstore, or you can make your own. The recipe is simple. It contains NaCl (sodium chloride) or more commonly known as salt, and distilled water. Use 9 grams of salt per liter of water. You can also add baking soda: 1 teaspoon of salt per cup of water and a pinch of baking soda. For a sterile solution, dissolve the salt in boiling water.
