We have been talking about mold a lot around here in our past few podcast episodes, and one of the common topics that comes up is the importance of the health of our living spaces. Which means, the air we breathe has a huge impact on our overall health, which is why the Molekule Air Purifier can be extremely helpful to those suffering from airborne pollutants!
Years ago, I went from having all the energy in the world to barely being able to get out of bed each day within a couple week time-frame. It then took months and months before discovering that I was suffering from mold toxicity, and that the air I was breathing was full of mold spores.
Many of us don't even know the damage mold can have to their living environments. And as we have learned in previous episodes, mold symptoms can mimic symptoms of a lot of other illnesses!
The Molekule Air Purifier can help to eradicate these airborne pollutants which can reduce your overall reactions to these toxins.
The Importance of Purifying the Air
There has been a lot of discussion through the years about purification of the air and what it can do to the overall health of our bodies. For some who suffer from asthma and allergies, it can be very beneficial, whereas those who are considered to be in good health could be exposed to having stronger immune reactions when they come across bacteria and viruses.
This is because we are worried that a too-sterile environment can weaken our immune system because it doesn't learn to fight off these known bacteria and viruses. Also, a lot of times these sterile environments use chemicals or antibacterial agents that can get inside our GI tracts and destroy the gut microbiome.
There is a problem with the indoor environment that does make it worthwhile to purify: because it is a closed area, pollutants can be 5x more potent than outside. If you live in a house that is full of mold, pet dander, VOCs, or other environmental pollutants, using a Molekule Air Purifier can be a great way to reduce these toxins in a way that doesn't destroy your microbiome.
In this episode, Dilip Goswami and I discuss:
»The different ways to filter the indoor air
»What pollutants we should be worried about
»Symptoms you may experience from indoor pollutants
»How tthe Molekule Air Purifier can benefit your living and work space
[3:49] What are environmental pollutants and how can they impact our health
[5:50] What are some of the health issues that can come from chemical compounds
[7:50] Are there specific building materials that may have more VOCs that are damaging to the body
[9:50] That new car smell is actually from VOCs
[11:20] Cars also have their air systems where you can be breathing in the fumes from other vehicles
[12:50] Is there a difference between pet dander and VOCs?
[16:15] Because we are talking about pollutants at such a micro level, is there a point where the filters don't capture the pollutants
[18:45] It is fascinating that standard testing of filters is based off of how well it can capture salt particles
[21:45] Is there a predictable time-frame to change filters so that mold doesn't grow on them
[24:40] If the filters aren't cleaning the air like we would hope, what are our options
[27:30] Can you talk a little more about what happens to the smallest pollutants
[28:35] What happens to the particles once they are destroyed, does it create a residue?
[31:00] How long would it take to purify a room with Molekule
[33:45] Why is there more concentration of pollutants indoors than outdoors
[37:00] Does Molekule clean the air to match the outdoors, or clean it even more?
[38:40] Are there specific groups of people who should use Molekule more so than others
