Brain fog Series (continued) (4)

4TH IN A SERIES OF BRAIN FOG.

SICK BUILDING SYNDROME-

Sick building syndrome can frequently be pinned down to heating, ventilation and air conditioning, along with the out pouring of gases in these areas.

When I was growing up,  I was always sick in the winter. Soon after I was married my husband told me that he could always smell gas fumes in my parents house. It took me many years to clean out my system and to get rid of the fog that it gave me.

Also, when I taught school, I was always sick all week and over the weekend I would feel better to get sick again the next week.

Have you ever gone into a store that has heavy scents.  I can always smell when a store has many products from China and the other smell that always make me sick is scents.

Symptoms of sick building syndrome –

Sensory irritation of the eyes, nose, throat

neurotoxic or general health problems

skin irritation,nonspecific hypersensitivity reactions

odor and taste sensations.

Causes-

Chemical contaminants from indoor sources

Chemical contaminants from ourdoor sources.

Biological contaminants

Causes of diseases later in life:

Radon and

Asbestos

Prevent illnesses –

When using paints, pesticides, cleaning agents, unnatural cleaning products,  only use in a well ventilated area.

In door pollution comes from homes and  building not having enough of outdoor air exchange in the area.  One thing that frustrates me is all the buildings that do not have windows that open. and barns that do not have ceiling vents. Poor air quality leads to brain fog. Have you ever been to a nursing home (homes for the elderly). Try visiting for more then a half hour and you want to fall asleep. No wonder they are so lethargic.

Biological Contaminants breed bacteria, molds, pollen and viruses in stagnant water. Heating and a/c ducts, humidifiers and drain pans, wet ceiling tiles, carpeting and insulation are high breeding grounds for the above contaminants.  Symptoms from these are many respiratory problems.

Many people who have worked with Radon and Asbestos many year later die of cancer or other respiratory illness.

Cleaning up your air quality will go a long way in alleviating Brain Fog.
