I've read a lot of interesting things about toxic molds and how it can affect people with Lyme. Some people have toxic mold spores in their home and don't even know it. I've been told HEPA air purifiers can help greatly in purifying the air in your home.

Anyone have experience with these? if so what have been the results?

Due to the heavy smoke/smog here in California, my wife was gulping like a fish out of water.

Went to the hardware store purchased a hepa filter, taped it to a window fan.

With all the windows closed, ran the fan.

about two hours later the air was all cleaned up. A cheap way to purify the air in the house.

I love my hepa filter and it is so awesome for pollen season for me.

I have found that plants destroy a lot of nastiness in the air.

For mold English Ivy is the best. But don't over water it and let mold grow on the dirt and you do have to trim it or it will grow all over.

I love aloe vera in the home and my bamboo is thriving. But my favorite is my Christmas cactus.

House plants can be so very beneficial to our home air. An easy to grow spider plant is a good beginner plant for the home.

I have mold illness in addition to Lyme. I finally dropped the big bucks and bought an IQ Air Healthpro Plus. I have been living with a relative for over a year now. I also have chemical sensitivities and my relatives are not fragrance free.

The air purifier does help the air feel cleaner. and I feel like I breathe better when it's on. I keep it on all night near my head where I'm sleeping.

It has not noticeably improved any of my symptoms. It does not keep me from smelling fragrance or chemicals if they are nearby.

Absolutely love the HEPA air filter almost as much as the commercial ozone generator (just be out of the house while using ozone for the purpose of killing mold spores). Thanks to the ozone generator I didn't have to throw away all my books and porous items.

I use two small ones True Air by Hamilton Beach under $50 each with cleanable and reusable filters.

Ran it for 3 months straight in my master bedroom. Ran the other in my son's bedroom. The son's bedroom filter was relatively clean when I examined it.

This is where it gets really interesting and I kid you not. I went to clean the filter for the first time in the one running non stop in the master bedroom, and guess what I found.

These long thin 'spider web' like stands were all embedded in the filter. I wish I had saved these for lab analysis. I have yet to duplicate this ever again.

The only other person who I have ever seen reporting a similar thing happening to their HEPA air filter was Cliff Carnicom. He studied the material in his lab here:


The deeper I dig, the stranger it gets and I haven't even begun to get to the good stuff yet. I wont be posting it here, but if you stay tuned to my YouTube channel I will announce what I have found there.

No the link in the profile doesn't work for some reason. No links to it work no mater how I do it. So I would appreciate if you go there, search it, and subscribe to it. If for some reason you cannot find it, please let me know here as they are really starting to hammer down on me there.
