Featured Article Asthma: Clean The Air, Start There! A Message from Bill Zimmermann, CEO The increasing rate of asthma cases over recent decades is cited by many as alarming, even epidemic in proportion. The increase over so relatively short a period of time forces the question whether it could be genetic and/or environmentally induced. Asthma has come to resemble the canary in the mine, its increasing presence acting as a forewarning of a possible multitude of other tissue related diseases that are also affected by air pollution.

These may range from strokes and cardiovascular disease to brain function diseases in early development to old age. The EPA states that over 50% of illness in America is triggered or affected by indoor air pollution, where it cites the air is five to 20 to 100 times worse than outdoor air quality. How has our indoor environment changed in recent years? The reasons for the dramatic increase in asthma may vary, but considering that from the onset of the Energy Crisis in the 1970s, the construction of our homes has focused on air tight designs, cutting back or altogether eliminating ventilation and air exchange.

And since we spend up to 90% of our time indoors, where the air we breathe supplies 90% of our lifes energy supply, our polluted indoor air takes its toll on our bodies in numerous ways. Our active indoor environments create a continual build-up of invisible airborne particulates, deriving from a variety of factorsranging from cleaning supplies and chemicals, to combustible appliance emissions, as well as from mold, cockroaches, house dust mites, furniture and materials off-gassing, pet dander, and the ongoing indoor absorption of outdoor pollution. The first important step is to recognize potential asthma triggers in the indoor environment and reduce your exposure to those triggers. By controlling exposure, we can significantly improve the quality of life of people with asthma.

About Us WHAT WE DO Environmental Health Network specializes in intervention and medical health sciences, green building technologies, clinical studies management, and environmental intervention product and patent development. In 2009, EHN contracted with Austin Air Systems and the National Sleep Foundation to develop the leading edge filtration system that would trap chemicals, gases and particles at the nano-size level. The successful result, the Bedroom Machine, was selected by Johns Hopkins University for their ongoing studies of environmental health and air quality intervention in over 60 Baltimore homes. WHO WE ARE Bill Zimmermann is the founder of the Environmental Health Network (EHN) and co-founder of The Green Kitchen Institute.

He is a specialist in developing clean air intervention technologies and is a leading voice in environmental intervention health sciences, green building technologies, clinical studies management, anti-microbial product and patent development. As director of EHN, Zimmermann develops and administers clinical field studies in environmental intervention and medical health studies, and conducts environmental intervention product testing and development. WHY WE DO ITMany people suffer daily from diseases due to their exposure to unknown environmental triggers. In a time when most people spend 90 percent of their time indoors, it becomes increasingly important that our homes are safe and the air we breath in them is clean .

EHN works to identify and remediate health concerns in the homes, to create a better and more healthy life for all. Below are some links to stories of people who unknowingly suffered from poor indoor air quality. These stories examine the seriousness of an issue that is largely hidden in our homes. It is their stories that inspire us to continue our work for healthy homes for all.

Toxic Mold In The Home: The Chick FamilyThe Dunkin Family and Sick Building SyndromeMold Leads To Brian Damage For Young GirlRenting Family Forced To Live With Mold Enviropractic Health Environmental Health Network, its academic and research collaborators, and partners are pioneering an IAQ Certification program in Enviropractic Health. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) focuses largely on securing a home's environment through duct cleaning and HVAC system approaches. The IAQ Enviropractic Health approach features preventive health measures and a health professional's approach to researching a patient's health issue in their home or work environment, starting with probing the electrical combustible appliances within the home, and evaluating their emmissions and the supporting air exchange and ventilation elements. Enviropractic Health goes beyond the patient to study the patient's environment.

The American College of Allergists says, "50% of all illness is aggravated or caused by polluted indoor air". The EPA in its report to Congress stated that "Indoor air represents one of the most important problems based on an estimated population risk". The American Medical Association has concluded, "air pollution can affect not only the lungs, but virtually every organ and system of the body". IAQ Enviroprqactic Health certified technicians investigate, interview, and create an environment-health outline that provides the primary health professional with the basis for clearer diagnostics and patient prognosis.

Chiropractor as Enviropractor: Seeing Beyond, To The Patient's Home Environment With over 84,000 licensed chiropractors nationwide and more than 10,000 students currently enrolled in chiropractic school, it is the fastest growing health care profession. Every year, more than 30 million Americans see Doctors of Chiropractic as part of their regular health care program. Indoor environmental health science, similarly, is gaining attention in general medicine, wellness, and treatable or preventable health factors. Because Chiropractic medicine is a form of natural health care that focuses on treating a patient without the use of drugs, it is increasingly being recognized as a natural fit with the concerns of environmental health science.

Working with chiropractors, the Environmental Health Network has designed “enviropractic” health programs that are being modeled throughout the country to provide dialogue between doctor and patient, share information, educate health professionals and patients on healthy home products and services. To the extent that indoor air experts merge their guiding information, technology and indoor service practices and methodologies with the medical clinicians who are diagnosing patients’ problems, the ability to arrest these problems increases exponentially. The background facts cite the enviropractic issues, and provide a premise for healing:The EPA states that over 50% of illness in America is either triggered or exacerbated by indoor air pollutionIndoor air is commonly polluted five-to-20-to100 times that of outdoorWe generally spend up to 90% of our time indoorsWe derive over 90% of our life’s energy from the air we breatheOur combustible electronic appliances emit toxic nanoparticles throughout our tightly insulated homesToxic, airborne nanoparticles are a leading cause triggering and exacerbating inflammatory tissue illness and diseaseCleaning the air with regular clean air exchanges reduces the presence of toxic nanoparticles and removes the triggers to inflammatory illnesses, providing a stage for prevention, treatment and healing. Chiropractors have extensive training to treat a variety of conditions such as allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, all of which are cited by scientific and medical research to derive significantly from preventable and treatable indoor environmental issues.

In addition, Chiropractors frequently treat individuals with problems of inflammatory nature, such as headaches, joint pain, neck pain, low back pain and sciatica, as well as osteoarthritis, spinal disk conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprains, and strains, many of which can derive from preventable environmental triggers. When a chiropractor involves indoor environmental health care in their healing focus, they go beyond the patient, to the patient’s home environment. In this effort, the Chiropractor is practicing Enviropractic Health. While so much—too much—of medicine relies on anti-inlfammatory pharmaceuticals, the envirporactic chiropractor knows well to prescribe clean air to their patient’s home environment.

The Hippocratic Oath, “first do no harm,” is now cited by medical practitioners as a warning to steer from the many dangers found in our very homes. This significance of environmental causal issues to health has a long way to go, but is gaining a groundswell of interest from a growing list of concerned chiropractors educated in enviropractic health care. Collaborations Nanoparticles Released By Kitchen Appliances Linked to Chronic IllnessesBy Dr. Jamson S. Lwebuga-Mukasa, MD, PhD. Often building strategies designed to conserve energy result in homes and public buildings that contribute to unintended adverse health effects that may account for a myriad of illnesses particularly chronic illnesses such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbations, and pulmonary fibrosis.

The burden of these chronic diseases contributes to high health costs and ill health. Particulates released during cooking can cause intense airway inflammation that also travels to many organs and may contribute to multi-organ diseases. We administered a questionnaire to study participants who all indicated that they only turned on the stove exhaust fan when they were cooking food with a strong smell such as fish, or smelled smoke caused by burnt food. Many homes had kitchens with stoves that were not vented to the outside.

Particulates and gases in homes were measured using WolfPack (GrayWolf, CT) equipped with TG-25, GrayWolf particle counter and P-Trak (TSI). We measured concentrations of particulates and gases in the 23 kitchens at baseline, for 15 minutes, following turning on of gas or electrical stoves (without cooking any food) while the exhaust vents were off. Concentrations of particulates remained elevated for at least 3 hours after the stoves were switched off. We found that in all cases nanoparticles were consistently elevated while concentrations of particulates 1 micrometer and higher were variable, concentrations of nanoparticles measuring 20 nm to 1 micrometer were consistently elevated to 250,000 to over 500,000 particles per cubic centimeter.

These concentration levels could be reduced to 60% if a stove fan was turned on when the stove was turned on. Levels of particulates ultrafine particles were reduces to 10% when an air cleaner was used in conjunction with the hood exhausted to the outside. In a study of seven cases conducted we have found a reduction in reported symptoms, hospitalizations and emergency department visits of patient who had previous frequent health care utilization compared to when air filtration was implemented. We conclude that improving ventilation and when this is not possible, air filtration does reduce exposure to combustion related particulates and gases that contribute to airway inflammation.

Greater attention needs to be applied to measures that reduce harmful exposures in the way we design and build homes and public buildings.
