If you are like most people, you probably spend more time in your bedroom than you do in any other room in your home. There are several simple but important steps you can take to limit and reduce your exposure to common problem areas that can occur in any bedroom. If you suffer from nighttime induced asthma, airborne allergies or have other respiratory issues, these preventative measures can make a significant difference.

  1. Encase every mattress, pillow, duvet, and box spring in your home with CleanRest® products featuring MicronOne® fabric technology. Block allergens from migrating from your bedding to you. Encasing your bedding is the number one step that many doctors recommend.
  2. Wash your sheets and bed linens at least once a week in warm water.
  3. Remove carpets, drapes and curtains from your bedroom and replace them with hardwood floors and wooden or plastic blinds.
  4. Use a dehumidifier and keep it set to less than 50% relative humidity.
  5. Vacuum your bedroom floors and furniture once a week. Consider wearing a protective dust mask while you vacuum.
  6. Freeze children’s plush toys in your freezer for 12 hours then wash them in hot water once a week to kill and remove dust mites and other allergens.
  7. If your bedroom contains a fireplace, do not use it.
  8. Keep your bedroom windows closed during peak allergy season.
  9. While we all love our family pets, we strongly suggest that you do not allow them into your bedroom. This will help reduce transmission of pet dander and other allergens.

It’s a complicated question for many companies to answer, and in the ever changing global economy a company can find itself drifting away for its core values.  For me and the company and brand I founded CleanRest® our mission has never been clearer.  Clean Healthy sleep, allowing you to maximize every day by caring for you and your loved ones while you rest.  I never thought that inventing an allergy barrier fabric and transforming it into a simple mattress cover and pillow cover would profoundly affect so many people.  Just a few days ago I received a call from the mother of a young allergy sufferer who explained to me that for the first time in over a year, her child slep through the entire night without waking up to use his rescue medication.  As a result, the mother and the rest of her family got their first full night of sleep, they all feel better and that keeps our innovation engines motivated! 

As a company we feel that everyone deserves the dignity of a clean nights rest and we have worked hard to make our products available for free by donating our mattress and pillow allergy covers to a variety of local charities, like the Providence Rhode Island Ronald McDonald House as well as the Crossroads Shelter here in Providence.  Regardless of a person’s income, all should be offered the opportunity to experience a clean comfortable sleep, by making this a priority of your own family as well as your community everyone’s lives will become more productive and satisfying.  To that end I wanted to provide my readers with an offer to save 25% off on any purchase of CleanRest® products featuring MicronOne® technology, simply entering “garysblog” at check out.  Use this opportunity to invest in the health and wellness of your family and yourself.

When JetBlue first approached us to develop a healthy alternative to their current offering of reusable in flight pillows and blankets I was excited by the idea of giving their passengers the opportunity to make a healthier choice.  Using our MicronOne® fabric, we quickly set out to design a pillow that would provide not only comfort, but lasting quality and cleanliness. During the design phase of the project I often brought home different iterations of The World’s Cleanest Travel Pillow and would allow my kids to play with them, sleep with them and cuddle with them.  They were an immediate hit, and my oldest child decided to name his Charlie, which he now refers to as his Charlie Pillow.  Each of my children use their pillow at different times in different ways about our home, and my wife and I enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that where ever they take their Charlie pillow their lungs and respiratory system will be protected from the micro-toxins that naturally build up over time in our home.

Gene Increases Risk of Asthma

     According to a report published in the New England Journal of Medicine, a small variation in the CHI3L1 gene increases the risk of asthma and bronchial hyperresponsiveness.  Researches originally studied the Hutterites, a genetically isolated population in South Dakota, but expanded their efforts to include three genetically-diverse populations around the globe to in order to examine the behavior of the gene variation.
     The discovery is a huge step in the study of asthma — it may lead to the ability to identify the susceptibility of asthma, as well as lead us to a treatment to prevent it.

Kids can outgrow asthma, right? Well, some can. According to a Canadian study, more than half of children who develop asthma during their first 6 years will continue to have the respiratory disease when they are at age 12.Of the 34,216 asthmatic children in the study, about 54% experienced an asthma attack the following year, and nearly 75% had attacks within three years of being diagnosed with the disease. The study also revealed that children who were diagnosed between ages two and five were more likely to have asthma at age 12 than children who were diagnosed before age two. Of the children studied, persistent symptoms were more common among boys.

Researchers recognized a difference between children who lived in urban areas as opposed to rural areas. Persistent symptoms were more common among asthmatics from cities, thought there was not a difference between socioeconomic class. What does that tell us? If kids in cities have more persistent symptoms, regardless of class and living conditions, pollution must play a large roll, considering it effects everyone.

Asthma Camp

Asthma camps are providing the education children need about their asthma, and it’s improving their condition. A new study has shown that children who have attended camps that center around asthma management skills had fewer visits to the emergency department and the doctor’s office, as well as fewer hospitalizations, than those who had never been to such a camp before.Researchers evaluated nearly 1,800 children at 24 separate asthma camps (about 120 asthma camps exist in the United States) that are sponsored by the American Lung Association (ALA). The ALA tries to reach out to children in poorer neighborhoods who are less likely to be receiving the care that they require for their condition.

The study showed that about 44% of the children had already visited the emergency room at some point, and 76% required additional visits to the doctor. It concluded that 37% of children with asthma were inadequately controlling the condition.

The numbers were different when researchers looked at children who had previously attended an asthma camp. They had fewer emergency room visits, fewer doctors visits and displayed much better management skills than others.

Asthma is very manageable, and the study does a lot to show that educational camps like these can help children manage the disease more effectively.
