Uninvited Guests Who Ruin Homes and Health!

Aug 17, 2007
Black mold, mildew, fungi, dust, pollen and odors are wreaking havoc on our homes and immune systems. Are you concerned about your wellbeing and suspect that the air quality in your home or office is sub standard? Do you have allergies or environmental sensitivities? It is possible that poor air quality combined with mold, mildew, fungi, pollen, dust or chemicals may be the cause. Microorganisms like warm moist places such as bathrooms, basements, kitchens and wet bars. Being primary digesters, they immediately go to work to decompose their surroundings, regardless of whether it is your clothes, carpet, furniture, house walls or cabinets.

Not only are these uninvited guests unsightly, smelly and persistent, but they can also degrade your health. They contribute to allergies, lowered immunity, environmental sensitivities, autoimmune diseases, jock itch, athletes foot, and may be suspect in other such health conditions such as mold in the lungs, systemic Candida Albicans and yeast infections. Your air is an ideal delivery system to all of these undesirable elements directly to your lungs and sinuses. Most people far underestimate the quality of the air in their homes. Indoor air quality can be 4-10 times more polluted than air outdoors. Where do you spend most of your time?

All over the US there are many homes and office building in which mold, mildew or fungi are wreaking havoc on the living and working conditions of countless people. I recently visited a large custom built home that was particularly memorable. An unusual variety of fungi had moved into the downstairs apartment and was busy constructing large black mandala shaped forms all over the walls and ceilings, creating a filth and stink that was unbearable. The owners tried to wash it away, but it resisted all forms of cleaning and cleaning agents. It persistently grew back within a short period of time. It produced thousands of spores that were carried on air currents causing it to spread throughout the house onto more and more walls and ceilings.

Poor air quality throughout the US and deterioration in homes due to mold and fungi is more common than you might think. Lawsuits have been held and won against contractors in California where black mold was found growing in the walls of new homes. Black mold causes numerous health complaints such as headaches, allergies, lethargy and more.

As these undesirable organisms that are carried on air currents move into the bathrooms, closets, basements, bedrooms and living spaces of our precious homes, we have to ask ourselves, "How can I evict these unwelcome intruders". Numerous air purification systems exist. Some people resort to vinegar, others to bleach and still others to harsher chemicals. Such is the conventional method of tackling these organisms, which has limited effectiveness. Harsh chemical cleaners easily release into the air and are potentially harmful to breathe and should not contact your skin. Pregnant women should take extra cautions to avoid mold and chemicals. To make matters worse, the spores of the mold and fungi easily travel on air currents, and they can lie dormant deep within porous materials such as wood, plaster, carpets, drapes, furniture and clothing. They are waiting for more favorable growing conditions and when presented, they immediately begin growing.

The persistent and prolific abilities of mold, mildew and fungi to constantly reappear even after extensive cleaning have raised the question, "How can I get rid of these unwanted invaders forever and prevent them from coming back".

In my search for cleaner air I examined two similar substances, Ozone and Aran, which are being produced from electric plug in devices that help to remedy these problems. Both are oxygen polymers, but one is three times more effective than the other. Due to frequent misunderstandings, doubt and ignorance, these substances, which offer outstanding medical and air cleaning benefits are not as common as one would expect. In Europe it is common place to treat all water and swimming pools with ozone or activated oxygen and unheard of to use chlorine, which is a toxic chemical.

Since the 1950's ozone machines and air purification systems have been created for the purpose of sanitizing air and water. While initially controversial, the use of ozone has been proven as both safe and effective for numerous home and industrial applications in the treatment of air and water. In 1965 this technology was improved upon by the introduction of Aran, which is a highly active form of polyatomic oxygen without the presence of Nitrogen oxides.

Over 70% of the air we breathe is Nitrogen. The vast majority of ozone air purifiers on the market can not distinguish between oxygen and nitrogen and produce toxic nitrous oxides. When I asked several of these ozone machine manufacturers about them they couldn't tell me anything. It took me 10 years of using an ozone air purifier to learn why I could not use it while in the house. It made me feel funny, but the manufacturer claimed it was safe. WRONG! More than 70% or the air we breathe is nitrogen and when those nitrogen molecules in our air are split, the result is toxic nitrous oxides. They are toxic to people, pets and plants and they can make you feel weird or loopy. Most ozone air machines produce them, but the manufacturers won't tell you.

The EPA suggests that ozone machines should not produce levels of ozone higher than 200 ppb (parts per billion), which is extremely minimal. My extensive research has shown that ozone is very safe in quantities as high as 50 ppm (parts per million) when the ozone is not in the presence of nitrous oxides. Most of the earlier ozone testing including most likely that which the EPA based their decisions on was when ozone was tested in combination with nitrous oxides.

What is the difference between ozone and Aran In the Webster's dictionary ozone is 1), an ionized form of oxygen and 2), pure air. Ozone is a combination of three single Oxygen atoms or O3. This highly unstable O3 molecule easily combines with pollutants and oxidizes them. Oxidation is nature's way of breaking down pollutants. Aran is a higher form of energized oxygen, which has significantly more power than ozone to effectively oxidize air pollutants. Aran is nature's most powerful natural sanitizer and described as O4-O16. These higher forms of allotropic activated oxygen are extremely rare and usually found in the higher atmosphere where they work to clean the air through oxidation.

How is ozone made? In order to make ozone a spark or ultra-violet light is used. Since this technology does not differentiate between nascent oxygen atoms and nitrogen molecules, the ozone that is created from ozone machines in the market place is combined with oxides of Nitrogen (NO, NO2 and N2O2). This both diminishes the production of ozone and introduces a substance that is detrimental to health. For this reason most home use ozone machines produce a small quantity of ozone in order to minimize customer exposure to Nitrogen oxides.

How is Aran made? Aran is made by a patented process with the Aran Corona generator that selectively separates the diatomic molecule of oxygen found in our atmosphere and regroups these nascent atoms of oxygen into molecules of 4 or more atoms of oxygen creating Aran (O4, O5, O6, O7, O8, O9, OX). In 1965 the copyright for Aran was registered in the Library of Congress, Washington D.C.

Fresh air, sunshine and good cleaning agents and practices are helpful in the fight for a clean, healthy home. Yet, if you find that they are just not enough, here are some tips for evaluating electric air or water purification systems. With so many purifiers and so much hype it pays to know what to look for including:
1) Quantity of ozone/Aran and negative ions unit produces.
2) Does the unit produce nitrogen oxides?
3) Does the unit have expensive replacement parts?
4) What is the power consumption?
5) What kind of maintenance is required?
6) How long is the warranty?
7) Does the unit require replacement parts: bulbs, ozone plates, filters?
8) What is the total cost of the unit?

The route to cleaner air is multi-fold. Don't let your health and wellbeing be compromised. You have to clean your home, find safe chemical free cleaners, open windows, fix leaks, clean out cupboards and get rid of moldy carpets or furniture. If all else fails, find an electric air purification system that produces polyatomic oxygen free of nitrous oxides. You can win the battle against black mold, mildew, fungi, dust, pollen and odors. Don't give up, your health is dependent upon it.
