It doesn’t take long after getting to Austin that you realize… it’s different.
People definitely march to their own drummer here. It’s a wide mix.
And that’s the way people like it. The slogan here is “Keep Austin Weird.”
There’s a lot to like. But one thing people would change if they could…
The air. Specifically, the pollen.
It’s brutal. Austin is uniquely bad because it has 3 different pollen seasons.
Ragweed from August to November…
(And it lasts much longer than other places do.)
Mountain Cedar from December to February…
Coining the term “Cedar Fever,” which can make you feel like you’ve got the flu if you don’t know what’s going on.
And Spring brings other tree pollens, a witch’s brew of Oak, Ash, Elm and Pecan, along with grasses all the way to September.
Come to think of it, it’s not like seasons at all, but one continuous relay team of pollen punches in the nose.
If this is something you’re dealing with, I feel your pain. And I have a few suggestions.
The first is try to stay as clean as possible. Wash your hands frequently. And your clothes, or even change them mid-day…
It doesn’t take long walking around in a pollen soup to build up a “film” that you may not see… but you’ll feel it soon enough.
The second is to stay as nourished as possible. Specific nutrients like NAC and quercetin can help bolster your sinuses, thin your mucus and beat back histamines (I’m working on a formula that includes these – more on that soon).
And last, filter the air – and don’t make your body BE the filter.
The temptation when Spring has sprung is to throw open the windows and air out the house. But be careful. You may be inviting in a bunch of irritants, in exchange for those that are in your house.
Either way, an extra line of defense is to filter the air in your home before it goes up your nose in the first place.
My recommended solution is the Alexapure Breeze.
If you (or someone in your house) suffers from allergies, trouble breathing or trouble sleeping… then this thing is a dream come true.
The Alexapure Breeze is compact, quiet and removes up to 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the air it filters.
It’s perfect in the bedroom, because it won’t keep you up, there’s no bright lights to bother you, and you’ll be amazed at how you feel when you spend 7 or 8 hours uninterrupted, breathing pure, clean air.
You can move it around the house, or keep another near the kitchen or living room, so you’re fully covered all day long.
Not only that, if you’re a dog or cat lover like me, then you know the smell tends to “linger” no matter how many times you vacuum.
Well this little machine can knock out about 90% of the “dog smell” in your living room in less than 24 hours.
Honest to God, it works that quick.
Don’t wait until you’re suffering to do something about it this Spring. Get ahead of the cloud and filter it out, before it makes a beeline for your nose.
