NutriFamily got a new allergy gadget a few months ago- an Intellipure air purifier. Now, this may not be your idea of a gadget but I definitely consider this product to be such. Just for backup, the definition of gadget is “a small mechanical or electronic device or tool, especially an ingenious or novel one” so I would say that pretty much matches our criteria. From the looks of it, you might think that it’s big, bulky and not user-friendly but it’s quite the opposite. As I demonstrated in my previous post, this Ultrafine 468 is super easy for anyone to use and literally ready to get to work on your air quality as soon as it leaves the box.
Let me go back in time for a minute. At the end of many long days, after staying up with my son who has a hacking cough that almost causes him to vomit and a stuffy, runny nose- a mom needs help. I have seen my son be so tired from those tough nights and still go to school; dark circles and bags under his eyes. Meanwhile, I feel as if I am failing as a mom inside. I’m literally watching my child feel unwell and I cannot seem to find anything that will prevent these flare-ups. This kills me. I have one job for this child and it’s to keep him safe and well. Finally, we get an actual diagnosis of asthma after a trip to the emergency room and 30+ albuterol puffs later as well as some tips on how to not only manage his asthma but how to try to prevent the symptoms before they get out of hand. One of these tips is to invest in an air purifier (NOT a humidifier; a humidifier can actually grow mold and create an icky mixture of other allergy no-no’s. Yes, we made this mistake). When I found out about the Intellipure Ultrafine 468, I was eager to put it to the test.
