An estimated 50 million people in North America suffer from all types of allergies (1 in 5). Since the early 1980s allergy prevalence has been increasing exponentially.
Allergy is characterized by an overreaction of the human immune system to a foreign protein substance (“allergen”) that is eaten, breathed into the lungs, injected or touched. This immune overreaction can result in symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose and scratchy throat. In severe cases it can also result in rashes, hives, lower blood pressure, difficulty breathing, asthma attacks, and even death.
There are no cures for allergies. Allergies can be managed with proper prevention and treatment. More people than ever before say they are suffering from allergies. It is among the countries most common, yet often overlooked, diseases.
One of the most common allergies is to dust mites. Some of the symptoms include stuffy nose, runny nose, watery eyes, dry cough, even aches and headaches. Many people suffer from allergies and are unaware of it. There is a good chance you may suffer from dust mite allergies if you tend to wake up in the morning congested.
Dust mites can be found in all households and will live in carpets, fabric upholstered furniture, curtains and most of all in beds. Dust mites feed mainly on shed human skin and your bed is their favorite place because of the high humidity generated by the sweat from the body and the skin particles. Mattresses, box springs, bed pillows and even comforters are breeding ground for dust mites.
A key component to prevent dust mites from making your bed their home is air permeability. Dust mites love humidity and the moisture exerted from your body will have no outlet if your bedding cannot breathe. Silk Bedding is a natural solution to minimizing allergens in your bed. Silk is impermeable to dust mites due to its natural ability to breathe and absorb moisture. Silk is also naturally hypoallergenic! It is the perfect bedding for anyone who is prone to allergies, asthma, hay fever, arthritis, and blocked sinuses.
Dust mites are tough; they cannot be killed by normal laundering. Only washing in hot water at 140 degrees or more will kill dust mites or by adding bleach or specially formulated products to your laundry water. Why go through the hassle of getting rid of dust mites when silk hypoallergenic and dust mite free bedding is available?
