Vapor Therapy for Healthful Living
Water is one nutrient that all forms of life must have to survive. All functions of your body require sufficient moisture to work properly. When your body does not have sufficient moisture, it functions poorly. Dry, arid climatic conditions are usually the culprit. Colds and flu can further cause dehydration.
Colds and flu begin making their seasonal rounds during fall and winter. Part of the reason for increased respiratory illnesses during this time is because the humidity level in the air reaches its yearly lows. Central heating units in homes and offices further remove moisture from the air. The relative humidity may drop to as low as 10% — drier than the air in the Sahara Desert. Most people experience problems when the relative humidity drops below 25%. A comfortable everyday humidity level should not be higher than 50%.
When you or your child are experiencing congestion, then the humidity should be kept much higher, 70 - 80% during these periods for best effect.
The GermFree Humidifier Helps Prevent This Excessive Dryness, Providing These Benefits:
- Helps Relieve Cold, Flu & Hay Fever Symptoms
- Helps Relieve Dry, Irritated & Itching Skin & Eyes
- Helps Relieve Coughs & Dry, Scratchy Throat
- Helps You Breathe Better & Sleep More Comfortably
- Stops Dry Out Damage to Plants, Paintings & Furniture
- Saves You Money on Your Heating Bills, Since Proper Humidity Lets Your Feel More Comfortable at Lower Temperatures
