How can you optimize the air you breathe?
Many authorities in functional medicine suggest an air purifier in your home. They suggest buying a purifier with a HEPA filter and a carbon filter, changing the filters twice as often as the manufacturer recommends. This helps to decrease small particulate matter in the air you breathe indoors.
The investment you make will pay off by improving your health. Optimizing your health may be much less expensive than trying to regain your health after it is gone. Keep your health and enjoy the added benefit of your life.
