EnviroAir™ Giveaway!

The expenses can add up very quickly when there is a chronic illness involved in your life. We are very grateful that Ruby's medications are covered on the PBS, and her hospital care and clinic visits are covered under our healthcare system. 
But that's not where the care we provide ends. And there are lots of little things to consider that end up making quite a dint in the budget. This includes things like petrol money to the hospital, paying for necessary meds not covered not the PBS like vitamins laxatives and probiotics, and the bigger food bill that comes with having to eat a high fat but healthy diet.

And then there are the "extras". The things that aren't really necessities, but things that we would like to be able to provide for Ruby, in the interest of her health. These can include things like buying organic food, using complementary medicines and treatments, going to salt rooms, using devices around the home to improve air quality…the options are endless.

Of course, we can't do everything. It's a matter of prioritising. Some families simply can't afford it. If it was a choice between a nebuliser and a salt pod, then of course the nebuliser will win.

One of the "contraptions" that I do have, is the EnviroAir "Breathe Easy" machine, by Nature Direct.   Nature Direct offer a unique range of non-toxic, eco-friendly cleaning solutions and disinfectants created by nature.
I bought it after hearing great reviews from quite a few friends. Sometimes personal experiences are the best kind of recommendation! This machine is like a bowl of water with a fancy water filter swisher thing on top that "washes" the air. It comes with an all natural concentrate, that is added to the water. It purifies the air in your home by reducing allergens (including mould spores), bacteria, pollutants and odours.
I use it every day if I can, especially on days where the air quality is low. I can tell you from personal experience, that on days where there is backburning in the area, and we wake up to smokey air that finds its way inside, our Breathe Easy machine gets rid of the smell very quickly. It is not a humidifier that releases extra moisture into the air, which is important to look out for when CF is involved.
