Indoor Air Quality

I’m Jody King-Colegrove with Quantum Techniques and today I want to talk about indoor air quality. Many times people don’t realize it, but the indoor air quality of our houses is not good. If you’ve ever done a remodel of your home, often all those smells stay inside the house and don’t ever escape. It’s important to make sure that your home has good airflow, and there are many things that contractors are now doing to ensure that the inside air is being exchanged with the outside air. It is an important concept, so I want to share some things that you can do to help you and family.

One source that I researched says that 75% of households have poor indoor air quality, and often it has to do with scented air fresheners. I recently moved to an area where there are many people who have that air fresheners inside their homes. It’s important to teach people that this impacts their health because it produces indoor air pollutants. Interestingly, children and pets are impacted more because of their small size. Kids have 30% more likelihood of toxicity to air fresheners because they’re size compared to adults. Cats, dogs and birds are even smaller so they really are going to be affected. Also, most pets spend close to 100% of their time inside the house, especially birds and cats, so they can really be negatively impacted.

You might not realize that you are having an issue with indoor air quality, because it may not show up as a respiratory problem, but it is happening. When I’ve tested people I’ve found that polluted indoor air can affect the spine, the mucosal lining of the nose and throat and even women’s vaginal fluid. Indoor air quality affects many different things, many of which you may not be aware. What is it that’s in air fresheners that impacts us? It’s something called volatile organic compounds (VOC). These are different chemicals, including formaldehyde, that can create issues with our lungs and also our heart. They can cause relatively minor conditions such as nosebleeds and asthma, and more serious things like cancer of the nose and throat.

Oftentimes when I’ve cleaned carpets when moving from rental properties, my son has developed nosebleeds, which is an indication that he’s breathing in too much toxicity. Other things it can impact include inflammation, hormone levels, semen quality, birth defects and reproductive harm. Recently we’ve moved a couple of times and have been impacted by more chemicals than is typical, and my dog’s endocrine and reproductive systems were affected to the point that she was unable to have her heat cycle for an entire year. I’m happy to say that we’ve cleaned that up and she’s back on the mend.

Scented candles are another thing that can impact our indoor air quality. Some of it depends upon the quality of the wax; those with very poor quality can contain toxic levels of heavy metals which may increase the likelihood of asthma and allergies and may even produce more of a risk for cancer. Burning incense can be worse than cigarette smoke, so that’s not a good option either.

So what can you do in order to help increase the air quality indoors? The most obvious thing is to open the windows to get fresh air. Additionally, you can use indoor air purifiers; I’ve found ones that use ozone are very helpful. Indoor plants naturally eliminate air toxins and produce oxygen, so it’s important to have them throughout the house. If you do want some kind of a scent in the air, one of the things that you can do is simmer mint or cinnamon in a saucepan on the stove. To help our garbage disposal smell better, we grind up fresh orange peels. Those are a few things that you can do to improve the air quality of your home.

About Jody King Colegrove

Life has it’s up’s and down’s; my life is no exception. After being married several years my husband and I discovered that we were having difficulty getting pregnant. I had always been the kind of person that when I put my mind to it I can achieve anything. My favorite quote was “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it”, by William Arthur Ward. With this issue I had hit a wall. We did the traditional medical treatments of In Utero Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). The egg would not attach to the uterine wall on the 26th day of my cycle because the receptor site had been turned off because of a previously used contraceptive. Not being able to get pregnant, what every other woman can do easily, really made me feel like I was not a women. I started pulling away from people and friends. We started working with Quantum Techniques to heal not only my body, but the trauma of going through all the procedures, the disappointment, and the emotional pain of wanting something so bad and not being able to make my body perform. After working with Steve Daniel and clearing the physical and non physical issues, I got pregnant five months later. This was such a profound healing in my life that I wanted to share Quantum Techniques with others, so I became a practitioner. I have worked with people regarding Anxiety, Headaches/ Migraines, ADD/ADHD, Autism, Weight loss, Addictions, Fungal infections, Depression, Insomnia, Thyroid problems, Broken bones, Warts, Skin issues, Allergies and Sensitivities, Babies and Animals, Dental issues, Sexual Abuse, Environmental Illness, Hormone Imbalance, Phobias/Fears, ect., just to name a few. I found Quantum Techniques to be extremely helpful in raising my son. Whether it was breast feeding, colic, getting him to sleep through the night, bed wetting, potty training, and food sensitivities, Quantum Techniques has helped every step of the way. Several years ago, I broke my leg skiing. I went through two surgeries; one to set the leg and one to remove scar tissue. I spent 5 months in physical therapy. During this time, I used Quantum Techniques to increase the speed of healing my leg and to reduce the pain and inflammation during recovery. I also needed to heal the emotional pain of not being able to walk for 3 months and to live life the way I was used to living it with movement and vitality. I had a great surgeon repair my broken leg. It was wonderful to also have the power of Quantum Techniques to ease my pain and maximize my body’s natural healing abilities. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Architecture from Pacific Union College in California. I live in Flagstaff, Arizona with my husband, Don, son, Avery, and Golden Retriever, Copper. I love traveling, learning, exercising, and gardening. Before joining the Quantum Techniques team I worked as a Real Estate Agent, Property Manager, and most recently as the Owner of a company building high end custom homes. I have Massage training, which includes Reflexology, Asian Medicine, Nutrition, and Herbology. I have training in Dona Eden’s Energy methods, Life Skills by Ron and Nancy Rockey, Laurel Melin’s Emotional Brain Training (EBT or Solutions), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) by Gary Crag, Mark Hyman’s Ultra Mind Solution, and Guy Finley’s teachings. I teach people how to take care of their health and happiness. As we live life we encounter toxins and traumas in our life. These affect our health and keep us trapped in life repeating the same stress or lesson until we learn how to get out of the loop. I would love to share with you how Quantum Techniques can impact your life so you can get back your health and happiness.

  1. Dear Jody,

    Thank you for the article. Very informative and educational. I agree with you. God gifted us fresh air. It is free. It takes a little effort to open the windows to let fresh air come into the room. A small action can save us from diseases.

    Peace
