Asthma and Allergies

I just read the asthma and allergies information in this site, about common environmental allergies in kids and I wanted to this information with you:

An EPA report, stated that indoor air pollution is one of the nation's most important environmental health problems. According to the EPA most homes have airborne concentrations of hazardous chemicals that are two to five times higher indoors than outdoors.(1)

This is my own experience:

My 4 year old daughter used to cough without any reason, doctors said it was allergies...I started trying to find a real reason for the cough and I noticed that after she took her tub, she started coughing, well, the baby body wash that I used on her (from a very well known brand) contains some ingredients that can cause allergies and asthma attacks, I was shocked!,  I changed all her baby products and my  house cleaning products to safer, eco friendly and better ones, the cough is gone!.

Thank you for sharing this info. My entire family (my husband, 2 children and I) all suffer from allergies. I get a cough that lingers forever every time I get sick or if I'm exposed to allergens. It's awful! I also have slight asthma, and my sons are prone to ear infections. My husband and I don't smoke, but we were raised by parents who smoked. I'm sure that didn't help. I'm glad to hear your family is living healthier. I'm going to take your advice and experiment w/ different products. Thanks again.

I liked your comment a lot, many people don't believe or don't want to believe that we do have chemicals and toxins in our homes, of course they say, they never got sick (lucky them). I spent coughing about 6 months and nobody could find a reason, my daughter as I said was coughing for a long time, I can not accept that is only a coincidence the fact that since I got rid of the chemicals, the problems were fixed, thanks for your reply, hopefully it will inform other people about this subject!

I agree with the toxic bit..I have changed to all the eco friendly cleaners and have found they have made a huge difference to how we all feel..because it can't be natural taking in all these chemicals.

The human body is made up of billions of cells, each one of which is derived from a single fertilised 'egg cell'. However, the body's cells are not all identical. There are at least two hundred distinct cell types, all with different features and functions, such as neurons (nerve cells), liver cells, skin cells, and so on. These specialised cells are the body's mature or fully differentiated, cells, all of which are derived from their common ancestors, stem cells. Stem cell therapy has the potential to revolutionise the treatment of a variety of human conditions. Rather than addressing the symptoms of a particular disease or condition, stem cell therapy seeks to address the cause of the condition, to effect repair or reversal of the disease state through the regeneration of the affected tissue. ReNeuron's development programs seek to exploit the potential of stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy offers particular potential in areas of significant unmet, or poorly met, medical need. Diseases of the brain, such as stroke and Parkinson's disease, can dramatically reduce quality of life. They consequently represent major healthcare costs, particularly in terms of long-term care. There are no treatments that effectively address the causes of these diseases. Stem cell transplantation therapy offers the potential to alleviate the symptoms of, or cure, these diseases and many others. and for more details about this tehrapy treating cancereous diseases also click on and to know diseases treated by stem cell tehrapy click and to have blogs about these stem cell treatments visit:

thanks for the update, i just got rid of my child's body wash

I as well have been changing over to the eco friendly cleaners as I use them up. One other thing I've been doing as well, and yes in the cold of winter, is opening a window up when I'm cleaning the bathrooms. I do this to let the cleaner smells out and to get fresh air in, so I'm not breathing in the cleaner as much. I worry about what I'm breathing in, especially with the rise in lung cancers with people who don't even smoke. Just a thought for you..... oh, and I was advised by a cancer survivor to always spray the rag and then clean. Don't spray the toilet or sink or whatever. Spray into the rag, so the spray isn't into the air and your lungs as much. Good luck... stay healthy. only

Stem cell therapy has shown significant positive results worldwide in conditions like Cerebral palsy, Mental retardation, Autism and many diseases over the last 3 -6 years. Also used for treating incurable diseases like, Brain Haemorrhage and Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury & Paraplegia, Autism, Parkinsonism and more than 75 diseases, cord blood has the ability to treat disorders that are largely genetic in nature. ReeLabs is committed to transform this concept of stem cells into a revolution in the field of medicine and scientific research through its two arms ReeCord and ReeCure. and for more details about cord blood also click on stem cell treatment and to know cord blood banking click cord blood banking
