Today’s lifestyle and way of living seems a world away compared to even a generation ago.
With the advent of new medicines, medical studies revealing new data and with the onslaught of daily advertisements to eat healthy, the general public has been in much finer shape than at any point in history.
But still this doesn’t seem to be enough.
Maybe is the advent of social media or 24 hour news that’s simply making us more aware, but as good as the health and development of individuals is, there is still a grow number of the population with increasing resistance to medicine and a predisposition to allergies
From simple nut or dietary allergies to more extreme skin conditions, it seems they almost everyone has some allergy that in some way affects their daily routine.
Some of these are mild and don’t even get noticed, there so infrequent and minor, but others can have more serious health and even life threatening consequences.
The bizarre thing is that these allergies are often caused by our new, modern way of life. Many weren’t around or certainly weren’t an issue a generation ago.
Dust mites, house allergies, condensation and mould can all cause very severe reactions to certain individuals.
Some of these problems are easy to rectify.
Others a more pragmatic approach is needed and it’s a case of bringing in a professional company to deal with it or seeking advice from your local council.
But in the very worst case scenarios, the only option is to remove yourself from the situation.
Medicine in these instances will have a very limited affect and the only solution is to simply move house.
This may seem extreme, but by staying in this type of environment the situation is only made worse.
Some property styles will regularly have these types of problems due to their design, the construction or their age.
So if you do need to move house then it’s important to not simply swap one problem with another.
What You Should Do
Taking medical advice is certainly the first step as they will be able to diagnose the level of severity the allergies may have caused.
The next stage might be medicinal or simply a case of keeping on top of the issue with regular monitoring.
If you have a family and young children they may also be more at risk due to their age so it’s simply never worth the risk.
With the governments push for ecological reform, all houses now have to present an EPC. This will help you assess any new homes quickly to see what issues you may have to contend with, so you don’t find yourself in the same situation if you do go the extreme of moving property.
Clearly looking after your health should take priority and even often simple solutions like being healthy, exercising and improving your general well-being will help. This is because your lungs will be stronger and able to cope with any outside toxins better.
Any cardio based exercises will help and will certainly be a better solution than simply relying on medicine.
