How to Manage the Sudden Change in Air Quality

With the air quality being so poor lately due to the surrounding fires, the concentration of inhaled toxins is much higher than normal. As a consequence, our bodies are continually working to repair the damage endured to the lining of the lungs.

The way the lungs mitigate damage is through the release of a potent anti-oxidant molecule called glutathione and so an appropriate preventative measure is a treatment of inhaled aerosolized (or nebulized) glutathione.

Who should consider this treatment?

  • Anyone with an existing respiratory condition including: asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, COPD, chronic cough, chronic sinusitis, smokers and others.
  • Anyone with worsening general symptoms since the arrival of the smoke, including: cough, fatigue, headaches, allergies, shortness of breath and others
  • The elderly.
  • Anyone concerned about the ill effects of the change in air quality, even with no symptoms present.

Treatments take only 10-15mins and should be repeated weekly or until symptoms resolve. Cost is $40
