The Secret to Having a Happy, Allergy-Free Holiday Season

    As festive and cheery as the Christmas season may be, the changing of the weather usually comes with a rise in people experiencing fits of coughing, sneezing, and other flu-like symptoms. While it might be easy to brush off these signs as the effects of weather changes, recognizing and addressing their underlying causes might prove to be more beneficial for our health in the long run.

    Tis The Season for Allergic Rhinitis

    Local studies have shown that heavy concentrations of pollen in the air can be observed from November to May. Pollen is one of the most common triggers for allergic rhinitis. Also known as hay fever or seasonal allergies, allergic rhinitis causes sneezing, nasal congestion, watery eyes, and coughing.

    In the Philippines, the overall prevalence of allergic rhinitis among Filipino adults stands at 20%. However, this condition can affect people of all ages. Beyond the aforementioned symptoms, people with allergic rhinitis often complain of fatigue, irritability, and the inability to concentrate.

    While allergic rhinitis can be treated with medication such as antihistamines and over-the-counter decongestants, many medical professionals recommend taking pre-emptive steps to find and avoid the triggers that cause allergic rhinitis. 

    The use of face masks can help reduce outdoor exposure to pollen, but when happens when pollen and other allergens find their way into your home? Indoor allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, and mold spores can trigger allergic rhinitis as well.

    Share The Gift of Healthier Air

    Research shows and experts agree that the use of air purifiers can reduce levels of airborne allergens and fine dust particles in homes. Studies also show promise for improving outcomes in children and adults with allergic rhinitis and asthma.

    By ensuring good air quality at home, people can combat allergic rhinitis and other threats to our health compounded by poor air quality.

    Said Professor Wojciech Feleszko, Associate Professor of Paediatric Pneumonology and Allergy at the Medical University of Warsaw, “Air purifiers can improve indoor air quality and can supplement asthma treatment to help allergy and asthma patients keep their symptoms under control”

    With all the holiday parties and family reunions going all this Christmas season, the need to create a healthy home environment is more important than ever before. To share the gift of clean air, Philips Air Purifiers are equipped with NanoProtect High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters that can remove 99.97% of particles as small as 0.003um from the air. 

    Users can also get the most out of their connected Philips air purifiers with the Philips Air+ App which provides air quality data, monitors filter lifespan, and automatically adjusts your device’s performance to give users better control of the air they breathe at home

    If the prospect of allergic rhinitis is enough to turn happy holidays into restless ones, here are some Philips air purifiers to help keep your home and the living spaces of your loved ones free from those seasonal allergies.
