The reality of polluted air cannot be ignored anymore. At least we can protect ourselves from the diseased dust in the air by passing it through a proper filtration tool – similar to the purification we do with the water.
This is a reality which is easily ignored as it is normally not visible in normal light. But seen in contrasting light it becomes evident, shockingly real. This can be normal dust, pollen, lint, mites, kitchen soot, construction fine dust etc.
The concentrations in our cities are growing everyday and we are breathing it in – hurting our lungs and spoiling our health. The movement of cars is keeping the dust constantly billowing and spreading. It is mixing with the diseased elements being released by garbage which in India is left to rot and spread around with impunity, plus fecal waste of animals and humans all over the country. The pollution from smoke stacks/exhausts is a given fact.
Indoors you need to protect yourself from Kitchen soot, Fungus and dust mites. This is the kind of dust that comes in thru the windows, with products and footwear and remains trapped in the house. It can give allergies/infections to the inhabitants and in the long run serious health problems because the elements in the dust are carcinogenic.
Brooming does not clean the house. It only lifts & spreads the thin dust back into the air which later settles back. By disturbing it you only make it easy for the dust to enter your breathing system. Trap it before it enters your lungs.
The following Ayurvedic solutions for dust allergies provided by Gyan Unlimited can help us naturally deal with this problem.
