Growing evidence suggests that poor air quality can cause migraines and recurrent headaches. The air in your environment, either at work or at home, can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside; therefore, it’s important that you keep the air in your space clean with a high-performing air purifier.
Often times, your migraine will be triggered by harmful substances in the air. Among various air pollutants, nitrogen dioxide and particulate matters (PM) have the highest effect on migraine. These are followed by scent and strong fragrances that can cause scent induced headaches – a reaction of blood vessels in our nasal passage affecting the circulation, which eventually brings on a headache.
How can an air purifier provide headache relief?
In addition to taking migraine medication or antihistamines, the most effective thing you can do to prevent headaches is to avoid airborne pollutants that can trigger the pain. While this may not be easy to accomplish for people who live or work in an environment with lots of pollutants, a high-performing air purification system can help alleviate the problem by removing potentially major irritants from the air you breathe.
One of the best things you can do is to explore purchasing a high-quality air purifier that will eliminate at least 99.97% of all harmful airborne particles. Blueair’s proprietary HEPASilent™ filtration technology does exactly that – it removes 99.97% of all airborne allergy and asthma triggers, including pollen, dust, pet dander, mould, smoke, as well as viruses and bacteria (and so much more) – down to 0.1 microns in size.
For scent induced headaches or migraines, we recommend air purifiers with a SmokeStop™ carbon filter. The active carbon filter is highly absorbent, trapping any strong odours, gases and large dust particles in the air which cause your air to smell stale.
However, if the trigger for your headaches is mostly from breathing allergens such as dust and mould spores, pet dander and pollen, then the Blueair Classic range of air purifiers with particle filters make a great solution as they will eliminate most airborne triggers.
