A Woman Laying Down because of a Headache


There are a variety of causes that can lead to headaches. Stress, lack of sleep, alcohol, and certain foods can all trigger headaches, which can typically be helped by simply taking some ibuprofen or getting rest. Environmental allergies can also cause headaches – specifically sinus headaches and migraines. Pollen, dust, and pet allergens can trigger an immune response resulting in headaches worse than your typical one with hard to ignore symptoms.

If you suffer from allergies, you know how bad the headache caused by them can be – pounding head pain, congestion, sinus pressure, and nausea can all be a result. While there are some common culprits, numerous allergens can cause these headaches making it challenging to avoid them. However, controlling allergens such as dust, mold, pollen, and pet dander inside your home is much easier to do than outdoors. An air purifier can help reduce the pollutants in your home’s air that may trigger an allergy headache. 

In addition to your doctor’s recommendations and prescription or over-the-counter pain relief, an air purifier may be one of the most effective tools to help prevent and relieve the symptoms of allergy headaches. Air purifiers utilizing True HEPA filters can quickly remove allergens in the air,  trapping 99.97 percent of airborne irritants.
