As a medical professional, I often hear the same questions during cold and flu season.
Patients want to know how they can avoid getting sick.
Patients ask if the flu shot works, and a lot of my patients ask if an anything can help with symptoms. I also receive a lot of questions about air purifiers during the allergy season. I have researched air purifiers extensively, and I’m happy to say that they can provide effective treatment for symptoms related to asthma, common colds, influenza, and allergies. The air purifier works by filtering out all of the unwanted particles. As air passes through the machine, a special filter collects all of the dust, dirt, pet dander, and odors. The air that comes out of the machine is fresh and clean and free of harmful pollutants, making breathing easier. One of the best things is that air purifiers come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, making them affordable for every budget. I work with a small company that provides this type of equipment at a wholesale price to my patients. The company is a nonprofit organization, and I don’t receive any kickback for referring my customers. The organization is run by two young women who are trying to provide clean air to everyone. They started the company shortly after college, and I found them in the beginning stages. With my help and the help of a few other local physicians, we have been able to provide a lot of low-cost air filtration equipment to thousands of residents in this area.
