True Story: Air Purifiers for CIRS

Indoor Air Quality | Air Ionizers | Mold

Air Oasis serves a variety of clients, some of whom use our air purifiers for specific conditions. This is a true story from Jennifer Hale*, a customer from Illinois, who has used iAdaptAir® air purifiers in both her home and workplace to address numerous chronic conditions. She and her family have been amazed at the unexpected ways that cleaner air and surfaces in their home has alleviated symptoms of persistent health issues. Here is a little more of their story and how our air ionizers have helped the symptoms of Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome, also known as CIRS.

Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome and Air Quality

Jennifer Hale represents an entire family of Air Oasis clients who live in multiple states. Many members of the family have CIRS. Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome has to do with inflammation. Symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Weakness
  • Aches and muscle cramps
  • Sharp pains
  • Red eyes
  • Fatigue
  • Metallic taste
  • Extreme thirst
  • Skin sensitivity

Many people have these responses from exposure to biotoxins and mold. The people in Jennifer’s family with this condition may have been exposed to mold. While surviving mold exposure is common, CIRS mold-related symptoms can persist.

Mold in a Healthcare Facility

Jennifer explains that they have experienced frustrating symptoms and undergone a long journey in both their home and office to identify the root causes. Jennifer is a trained RN and owns a natural wellness business. She works with other family members who also suffer from CIRS.

For their healthcare business, they rent a 2,000 square foot office space. This is built on a concrete slab and has no apparent water damage. Before moving in, the building was professionally vetted by an indoor air quality expert.

Within three months of moving into this office, symptoms of CIRS began to recur for all of these women. They were experiencing fatigue and ear ringing, along with various inflammatory symptoms. Yet, there were no mold readings.

Jennifer’s niece experienced symptoms of eczema on arms and face, which had been present during historical CIRS flare-ups. Due to the prevalence of all of their symptoms, their medical doctors recommended Air Oasis iAdaptAir® purifiers.

They purchased large, medium and small iAdaptAir® air purifiers with filters and placed them in each room of the building. Within one week, their fatigue and ear ringing had diminished and the eczema had completely disappeared. Jennifer firmly believes that following their doctor’s advice to purchase the iAdaptAir® ionization systems completely changed the air quality and alleviated all of their symptoms.

Mold in Your Home

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mold can grow indoors through:

  • Open doorways
  • Vents
  • Windows
  • Heating systems
  • Air conditioning systems

Excessive moisture, like pipe leaks, can also cause mold. Wet cellulose items like paper, cardboard, ceiling tiles and wood promote the growth of mold. Mold also grows on:

  • Paints
  • Wallpaper
  • Insulation
  • Drywall
  • Fabric
  • Carpet
  • Upholstery

CIRS is just one health risk from mold exposure. People also may suffer with asthma or allergies. If you or anyone in your family has suppressed immunity or chronic respiratory conditions or are concerned about viruses, they are at higher risk for acute symptoms from mold exposure.

Air Purifiers for Mold

In the case of Jennifer’s family, air purifiers for mold resolved symptoms of CIRS disease. CIRS treatment may include:

  • Treatment with cholestyramine or another binder
  • Correct androgens, DHEA and other hormones
  • Use vasoactive intestinal peptides

There are a wide range of treatments used by medical doctors.

CIRS mold symptoms will include one or more of the list above but could include things like skin conditions, as was the case with Jennifer’s niece. Once you have a positive CIRS test result and see CIRS symptoms, air quality should be a point of consideration. CIRS treatment protocol, by consensus of medical experts, begins with assessment of the environment and immediately addressing any mold. Both short-term removal and long-term building maintenance strategies should be implemented. Mold remediation may be required, followed by a comprehensive approach to improving air quality.

Air Oasis air purifiers all employ one or both of these two ionization technologies: bi-polar ionization and advanced photocatalytic ionization. These safe and effective forms of ionization have been lab tested to reduce mold and mycotoxins by 99%. We manufacture and sell HVAC whole house air purifiers and portable air purifiers. Many customers achieve blanket coverage using a whole house unit and then add additional purification to high-usage rooms such as bedrooms and family rooms with a portable one.

Air purification for mold is essential. Mold spores can replicate and fill the air in your home or office. Waiting until you, your family or your workers exhibit symptoms is putting everyone at risk. Get ahead of the problem by being knowledgeable for what to look out for and installing air purifiers which will improve everyone’s health.

Air Oasis Customer Story

Hear directly from this customer about her experience with Air Oasis:

I tell people when they are running the air feels like the windows are open in winter. The air is amazing and crispy fresh. No odor. No Ozone Just clean. They are also very quiet... mine is running on high right now and it’s between me and the TV. Quite amazing as some air purifiers I have had in the past sound like the vacuum!

The replacement filters for these are 1/2 the cost of the IQ Air units. And Air Oasis has filter bundles to reduce the cost even more.

The customer service at Air Oasis is incredible. They really care about their customers. They will answer any question and solve any problem.. it’s a very friendly bunch down there in Texas! This company has these very high quality air purification units and they aren’t the cheap brands you get online or at the stores. But they seem to have an interest in helping people get them into their homes by offering sales at different times, flash sales that you can watch for and even discounted refurbished units. It shows real heart for a company that has a higher price point on sophisticated products to try and help people out. Impressive.

My grandkids all have allergies and of course there is always the colds and flus brought home from school. Everyone now has their own small IAdapt air in their rooms. They love that they can control them with their IPhones! The larger units are in the kitchen and living rooms killing anything that comes in the front door! Lots of Peace of Mind having these!

While they don’t advertise this, the small IAdapt units are small enough and lightweight enough to travel with And I do! They will fit in a carry on and they come with different plug attachments for anywhere in the world you go! Who knows what you run into in hotel rooms... now I don’t worry about it
