Dust Mites and Cotton Allergy Proof Bedding

Why Dust mite Proof mattress encasings?

House dust mites are microscopic, eight-legged creatures that live in our bedding and homes and cause allergies such as wheezing, sneezing and nasal stuffiness as well as a host of other allergic reactions.

Using the RELAX bedding system is the easiest way to help relieve these allergy symptoms.

What else can I do to help with my dust mite allergy?

  • Laundering your bedding in hot water once a week. Cold water will not effectively kill all dust mites.

  • Do not place bookshelves and other surface furniture in your bedroom that gather dust.

  • Choose washable stuffed toys, wash them often in hot water, and dry them thoroughly. Keep stuffed toys off beds as often as possible.

  • Use washable rugs instead of carpeting on hard-surface, easy-to-clean flooring such as hardwood, linoleum, or terrazzo floors.

By taking steps to cover the mattress, pillow and duvet how soon will I notice a difference in my family’s health?

Using dust mite proof mattress encasings has been clinically proven to dramatically reduce allergy and asthma symptoms and allow patients to cut down on their medication use. By practicing good sleep hygiene, and creating a safe sleeping environment, you will find that your health improves rapidly.

Facts 

  • The average mattress contains millions of microscopic dust mites - high-quality covers are the ONLY way to block them from being inhaled at night 

  • Researchers have even suggested that up to a third of your pillow’s weight could be made up of bugs, dead skin, dust mites, and their feces. MEDICAL DAILY ORG. 

  • Comfort is very important - lower quality vinyl type covers are noisy and cause night sweats, most patients stop using them after a short period. 

  • New state-of-the-art weaving technology combined with true 100% organic cotton has resulted in Relax Beddings “Super Weave” (under 6-micron opening, dust mite is 200 microns). The only things that you will notice are better health and a reduced need for medications.

Doctors Note :

What is house dust mite allergy?

Dust mite allergy is a hypersensitive reaction to proteins in the excretion of dust mites. The protein attacks the respiratory passages causing any of the following conditions:

  • Hay fever

  • Chronic rhinitis (runny nose)

  • Asthma

  • atopic dermatitis

  • Sleep disturbances

  • Snoring

  • Chronic cough

  • Chronic inflammation

Dust mites are found in all homes. These microscopic organisms live off of human skin cells and thrive in warm and humid houses. Dust mites live in beds where there is a concentration of the perfect elements for life: a lot of food and a warm humid environment. About a third of our lives are spent in bed and this is where we inhale large quantities of dust mite allergens.

How do you become allergic to house dust mites?

The excretion of the mites contains a number of protein substances that we react to. When inhaled, or even touched to the skin, the body produces antibodies. These antibodies in turn treat the protein like a harmful invader which triggers the release of histamines. Histamines are the main culprit in allergy:

  • itchy eyes

  • runny nose

  • Coughing

  • Wheezing

  • Sneezing

  • Skin irritation

  • general irritation of the upper respiratory passages.

Unlike pollen which is seasonal, dust mites and their dander are always around. Because the tendency toward allergy is often hereditary, the best thing to do is protect yourself prior to exposure.

How does the doctor make the diagnosis?

Often, your doctor can take a detailed history of your symptoms and deduce that dust mite is the culprit. For example, if your allergy symptoms become more severe in the morning or at night, chances are, it is a dust mite allergy. There are, however, allergy skin tests and various and blood tests that can be used to determine specific allergies.

The Doctors Advice

It is best to do everything possible to avoid hypersensitivity to house dust mites. People who have perennial rhinitis, inflamed mucous membrane of the nose, or are allergic to house dust mites should try to adapt their homes:

  • Have as little furniture as possible in which mites can live.

  • Cover your bedding in dust mite proof encasings

  • Wash bedding once a week in hot water

  • Vacuum and dust regularly

  • Avoid dust traps like teddy bears, cushions, dried flowers, bric-a-brac and toys.

  • If you have a teddy bear that your child can't live without, simply throw it in the freezer every week overnight – this will kill the mites

  • Avoid dusty places

  • When you are likely to be exposed to substances that give you a reaction, such as when you are house cleaning, wear a mask.

What to do?

If you are allergic to house dust mites, it is important that you don't expose yourself to the dust mite allergen because it increases your chances of developing asthma.

Testimonials :

Hello, I just wanted to let you know what a difference the mattress encasings are making for my son! Within a week his 'allergy shiners', the dark circles under his eyes, had lessened and he stopped waking up coughing. We see a real difference in him. If I had known his allergy would be treated so easily, I would have done this a lot sooner! Thanks so much.
