Wendy Myers: My name is Wendy Myers. Welcome to the Myers detox podcast, where we talk about everything related to heavy metal toxicity, chemicals, detoxing your body and detox tools, supplements and just general overall health. And toxins are one of the number one primary drivers of disease today. It's so important to be adding detoxification to your already healthy lifestyle. That's why I do this show. You've got to be thinking about toxins, and remove them from your body and home and environment if you plan to be healthy and remain that way. Today, we have my friend Eileen Durfee on the show, and she is going to be talking about the do's and don'ts of air filters and ways to increase oxygen in your body, which is super important. And she's such a wealth of information.
I just love having her on the show. And she's a really avid inventor, prolific inventor, and I just I use all of her products and highly recommend them so much. And today we're talking about air filters and why indoor air is five times more toxic than outdoor air. It's hard to believe but it's true. And exactly what you're breathing in every day. I think people don't realize all the different heavy metals and chemicals and things that are in the air that we breathe in. We'll talk about the latest and small portable air filtration devices that really can actually work better than the larger devices that many people purchase that are much more expensive, but not better. And we'll also talk about, if you have breathing issues or asthma or a chemical sensitivity, how filtering your personal airspace can be incredibly helpful. And also, why it's not enough to simply filter your air.
You want a device that also can produce oxygen, and can produce negative ions as well because this will just give you additional health benefits. So, all that more today on the show. And you guys listening, you're listening because you're concerned about detoxing your body. You're concerned about toxins in the environment and the threat that those pose to your health. And I wanted to give you guys an easy way to assess the relative levels of toxins that you have in your body based on some lifestyle questions. So, I created a two-minute quiz that you can go take at heavymetalsquiz.com. And that's going to give me your results, your relative levels of toxin levels, and also a video series, a totally free series after you take the quiz to give you the next steps. What do you do? There's so many different choices, so many things we talked about on the podcast, but I give you the very next steps, what you should do, where you should start on your detox journey.
I’ll create a really good educational video series after you take that quiz. So, go check it out totally free at heavymetalsquiz.com. Our guest today, Eileen Durfee is a nuclear power engineer, auditor and inspector and she became toxic and suffered from allergies, major food sensitivities, chemical sensitivities and thyroid disease. And during her journey to heal, detoxify and achieve natural health, she invented a lot of really helpful solutions, you know, mother is the necessity of invention. She was needing tools that she couldn't find that she really wanted. So, she just created them herself. And Eileen is passionate about taking good ideas and creating better health products to support detoxification, energy production, mineralization and natural health. And she has been granted numerous patents and has patents pending and is writing a self-help book about low back pain to fix the $100 billion a year low back pain problem. And you can learn more about her at creatrixsolutions.com. Eileen, thank you so much for coming on the show.
Eileen Durfee: Well, thanks for having me again.
Wendy Myers: So, let's talk a little bit about you know how you got into the health industry like you have, like taken every aspect of detox and totally rethought it, reengineered it and I just love what you're doing on your, in your company and on your side. Tell us your story.
Eileen Durfee: I've been sick my whole life. You know and back when I was growing up, you know, doctors didn't have a clue. My parents weren’t into natural things and then, when I started working at nuclear power plants, and you know, just the homebuilding industry, being around all these chemicals and everything, I became really, really sick. So, it was like a process of elimination. Medications, you know, weren't actually controlling my symptoms. At one time, I was allergic to everything. And so, that's where you go through your house, and you don't use anything with any fragrances or chemicals, you have air purifiers. You know, you got to have the dust and the particles and you know, even the foods you eat, you know. So, I was eating more like a paleo diet before paleo existed, like in the 1980s. And it's just been, you know, just eye awakening to me that so many of my problems were because I was toxic.
Wendy Myers: Yeah.
Eileen Durfee: I was acid, I just had all these things. I didn't have the right minerals. And my body was just like a jalopy. Nothing was working right. And so, I just had this underlying belief, though, that if my body just had a little help, and had what it really needed that it would heal itself. And so, you know, early days, you know, no toxic chemicals. Now, you can go to the store, and you can get stuff, you know, like, go green, and, you know, nontoxic. I mean, there's such an awareness now, of how these things are making us sick. So, it was just my journey. And then, so I've always been a gizmo woman, you know, being a nuclear power plant engineer, auditor and trainer. I mean, I see things in blueprint form. And so, when I buy a gizmo, and I try it, and then it's like, oh, man, I like this, but I wish it was this, that and the other thing, I just go to sleep, and I wake up and I see it. And so, then I just naturally like to build things that makes me feel good.
So, I'm prototyping on just making things, you know, not necessarily to work for every circumstance that someone might have. But something small, affordable, something that you'll actually use. Cuz, you know, I have such a bad reputation for having so many gizmos that I'll get and then never really use. And so, part of what I've tried to do is make everything easy, friendly, something that we'll actually use in our daily life and have it become part of our routine, because that's really consistency. You know, that's really the only way that it's going to make a huge impact in our lives. But the good news to all of this, there's some simple things that you can do that will make big changes in your health, that will protect you from accumulating more toxins. And that can help you to eliminate toxins. So, this is all good stuff.
Wendy Myers: Yeah, and so one of the things that you have done is really thought a lot about air filtration because this is really, really important because indoor air can be five times more toxic than outdoor air. So, talk a little about that, and why we really need to think about filtering our air?
Eileen Durfee: Yeah, it is more important. You know, if you don't breathe, you're gonna die quicker than without water, you know, or if you burned your hand or something like that. So, that's your number one exposure to chemicals and toxins is breathing. So, it's natural that we should think about a first line of defense of purifying our air. Nowadays, with the 21st century, most of us are indoors, about 80% of the time, sometimes even 90% of the time. And then with our house designs being more energy efficient, we have fewer air changes. They’re you know, sealed up to where you're not getting cross ventilation, you know, air exchanges and then all the building materials we’re using. You know, they're –
Wendy Myers: Horrifying. Horrifying.
Eileen Durfee: Yeah, yeah.
Wendy Myers: The stuff that's in our homes, it deteriorates and then turns into dust and then we breathe it in and it's terrible.
Eileen Durfee: So, you know, that is so important. You know, the Health and Human Services says that respiratory illness symptoms, when you double the ventilation go down significantly. So, you know, air purification, like when there aren't high pollen counts or high dust counts, and it's a nice day. That's why it's so important maybe to open up the doors, you know, get some fresh air in your home, air it out. You know, think about going all non-toxic for your chemicals and cleaners, for everything from your laundry to maintaining your home. Another issue is mold. One in two homes has a moisture problem. And then that, you know, mold is horrible. So, you really have to remove the food for the mold, and how the moisture was getting there to begin with. Because even the best air purifiers in the world, if there's constant growth and exposure of mold, that we can't do anything about that.
So, we got to be on the first line of defense, especially this is fall, winter time and the recommendation I'd like to make for people is, do not close up your crawl space vents. I'm driving around town, and I'm already seeing people plug up their crawlspace vents so that they don't get the cold air underneath their floor. Now, homes are supposed to have insulation in their floor. And the water lines should be up in that floor insulated or they should be heat taped or properly insulated as they come out of the ground. And so, you know, unless you've got like a certain circumstance where right there at the water line, you want to maybe protect it from freezing. But as a general rule, do not plug up the crawlspace vents, because it's based on square footage area, and square inches. You want that ventilation to come in there. Otherwise, you can have mold coming up.
You know, you're supposed to have vapor barriers against the ground. But inevitably, if you close up those crawlspace vents, you can be having condensation and moisture, and then that can get in your home. So, you know, go green, go natural, you know, make sure you got the ventilation. And then even then, I mean, how about the drapes you just bought or the new couch? Or the new clothes that you come in and they smell new? That's because it's chemicals. And all that stuff is outgassing. Has anybody ever gotten any new carpet, and then there are toddlers crawling on the carpet. And then it's like, they're getting asthma symptoms. You know, all these things, we need to really take a look at and then purify our air on top of it just because of it being closed up and being climate controlled. We're going to have issues indoors.
Wendy Myers: Yeah, yeah. And, and then, there's the furniture that, that people buy and I, I really haven't seen very many nontoxic furniture places at all to buy healthy furniture. I've seen it for healthy mattresses, but not like your couch or other things like that. So, just a lot of exposure of toxic –
Eileen Durfee: Right.
Wendy Myers: … chemicals and just the average household. I mean, it's just it's crazy the amount of stuff that's getting into the air that we breathe in. And, and then mold. I mean, so many people have mold issues. I've sold a home and then escaped from another home that I had mold and people just don't have that on their radar. So, let's talk a little bit about outdoor air. What kind of toxins are we getting that are coming into the home that we're breathing you know when we're out and about.
Eileen Durfee: Well, I guess you wouldn't call pollen a toxin but that's probably more reactive and affects people severely and pretty quickly or you know pollen and grass counts. But you've got automobile exhaust fumes even though we have unleaded gasoline now. You know, those fumes from burning petrochemicals are giving you exposure. Even people you know, burning fireplaces, but you've got the industrial exposure from plants. You know, this summer, I, somebody called me and said, Eileen, there's smoke, black smoke coming from your office area. And so, I run down here and one of the neighboring businesses, they were welding something, and it caught this field on fire. And there were tires burning. I mean, it's like, there's a lot of people that will just burn stuff in the air.
I mean, we were up deer hunting, and we went by and saw the neighbors. And just every plastic something that I would just never put to burn to put in the air. I mean, they'd just like throw it in the fire. Generally, people, there's a lot of people, and majority of the people that don't care about the environment that are causing pollution, that's all around us. I mean, the wind shifts. And we're just going to be breathing all that stuff in.
Wendy Myers: Yeah. And then that gets into our homes. And I live in Huntington Beach where there is some sort of like water treatment plant and industry. And you can smell the sulfuric chlorine type smell periodically.
Eileen Durfee: Oh, no.
Wendy Myers: That's just really overwhelming at times. So, we all have this in our METS that we deal with, it gets into our homes. So, let's talk about the latest and small portable air filtration devices that can, can really even work better than these large, expensive air filters. I mean, I bought all kinds of air filters before. I bought like HEPA filters. It was this big, huge, round thing. And it was like really, really loud and sucked in air. And I didn't want to turn it on because it's just so loud. I'm like, I need to hear myself think. And then I bought other filters that I buy them and I didn't realize it was the same thing. They just have this really loud, sucking contraption where they're sucking air through to filter it. So, how have you kind of rethought air filters?
Eileen Durfee: Well, the main thing is, is I'm not just in my home, and I'm just not in my office. So, wherever I am, I'm exposed to toxic air. So, I wanted to have something portable, or something that would work for a room. But that was small and versatile. So, my first air purifier that I started making is called the Breathe Safe. It's, it's really small, it's about seven inches long, and two inches wide and about three inches tall. And so, this device comes with an electrical cord that you can plug into a wall or you can plug into any USB. So, like your computer, your portable battery bank, it can plug into your cigarette lighter. And this little air purifier is what they call a Plasma air purifier.
Everybody's heard of negative ion generators. But this goes a step further and uses a small portion of positive ions. Now, we think about positive ions being unhealthy. But when you have a little tiny bit like the Breathe Safe makes 19 million, over 19 million negative ions and it makes 4,500,000 positive. And so, the negative and the positive you know, it has this ionic reaction basically, that will rob hydrogen molecules off of pathogens or formaldehydes or benzenes or all these things that are you know, bad for us. And then, it does break it down to fall to the ground like a negative ion generator, but it also leaves over millions of negative ions in the air we breathe. So, it's just kind of a step up from there like the Los Angeles airport uses gigantic plasma air purifiers and that's why when you go to that airport versus other airports that you don't smell the jet fumes so much because plasma is really good at getting rid of volatile organic you know compounds and, and petroleum type things that can be in our air. So, the -
Wendy Myers: So, for, for people who don't know what negative ions are, the benefits of those. Can you explain that?
Eileen Durfee: Well, in nature, like when you go to the beach or a waterfall, the, the crashing water creates a negative charge on an ion. And actually, for the body to be healthy, we need to be having, you know, 4000 negative ions per cubic centimeter in the air when we breathe, because we've got negative charges and positive charges that just helps our body function. And so, nature makes them like after a rain storm, when you smell all that fresh, there's a lot of you know, negative charge there. And so, nature cleans up the earth with negative ions. And so, it's a natural occurrence and unfortunately, with the 21st century, with our air conditioner environments, the ductwork in our homes strip the air of negative ions.
If you have a negative ion meter in your home that, that has an HVAC system heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, you're going to probably have around 400 to 500 negative ions per cubic centimeter. If you're on the LA freeway stuck in traffic with all, you know, the air inversion with the smog in there, you're gonna probably only have that many. But you know, when you go on vacation, and you go to the beach or in your mountains, you know how you just feel so energized and fresh, it’s because you're breathing negative ions. Even WebMD says, if you can inhale enough negative ions, that it's better than an anti-depressant. So, a lot of people that are depressed, it could be that they just got a negative ion deficiency.
Wendy Myers: Yes, and this is so key. This is like the number one thing that people need to be adding, because it's so simple. It's simple to add negative ions to your environment or to your body, by you know, swimming in the ocean, or grounding or sort of that. There's things you need to do indoors. And the, and it solves a lot of downstream problems, because your body has to have these negative ions, which is basically electrons because your body is an electrical being. We have to have this charge for our body to work properly and also to protect from EMFs. EMFs does positively charge our body, the negative ions counteract that. And so, this is one of the most basic things that people need to understand and tend to if they want their body to work correctly. And I have my little, my little Breathe Safe on all the time. I love it because I, you can tell the difference. It's striking. Say, before you're using the Breathe Safe, you just have your stale air in your room, and you put the Breathe Safe on and it's going for just a short amount of time. It's a completely different energy, feel, smell. It just it's amazing how well it works.
Eileen Durfee: And by accident, we found out you know, after reading some of my customer reviews, and they're calling me up telling me all these wonderful things about being able to breathe without having an asthma attack, or, you know, just all these things, people with multiple chemical sensitivities being able to go out now. They're not stuck in their home. So, I sent it off to a lab to find out what is making this different than other Plasma air purifiers, or negative ion generators. And the results came back that it produces oxygen.
So, it's a new way to produce oxygen. Now, depending whether you're inside or outdoors, your background oxygen levels are going to range between 15% and 20%. The Breathe Safe increases oxygen levels 70% to 118%. And I'd like to ask people out there that maybe have the Breathe Safe or if you get a Breathe Safe, if you have an oxygen monitor because I've been getting calls from people where their oxygen levels are significantly going up when they are like sleeping with the Breathe Safe or using the Breathe Safe. And so, there's another group of people that are really excited, you know about increasing oxygen levels in their body. There's just a lot of good benefits to that.
Wendy Myers: And that's another really important thing because over you know, just overall, there's not enough oxygen in our environment. There's much less so than there was say, 100 years ago people have less oxygen saturation in their tissues. And as a result, they have more pathogens and infections and things like that, because oxygen helps to kill all those off. So, it's really, really important again, to also oxygenate your environment as well. And so, are there - is there anything else you want to add to that or maybe talk about any do's and don'ts of air filtration?
Eileen Durfee: I'd like to add one more thing. And it is another use for the Breathe Safe and it has an ionic sauna booster. There's some really interesting studies that have been done in Europe. They're mainly into the traditional sauna, and they will test and rate traditional saunas based on the negative ion output when you pour water over the heaters. Some brands make positive ions. So, people when they take those saunas get extremely fatigued or exhausted. And so, the study was showing that as long as you inhaled 20,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter when you were taking a sauna, a strange thing happened. Your body didn't cool its rectal temperature down. Normally, the first thing when you start getting hot is, the body cools it down. It's like a stress response.
When you inhale the negative ions, that doesn't happen. And then they, they actually measured, they collected and measured the sweat off these people. And the ones that were inhaling negative ions, their volume of sweat was twice as much, their skin temperatures were higher. But then when they asked everybody about the fatigue, it’d be interesting. You think that the group that was hotter and sweat more would be more tired, but they were more energized. They didn't feel as tired. And even better yet, when they got out of the sauna, their rectal temperature continued to rise. So, this is really special, because there's a lot of people out there trying to get their core body temperature up to be able to kill weak cells or pathogens. And so, if you can use a little hack device, like the Breathe Safe to maximize the effects of the sauna, the time that you're in there, it's a really good thing.
Wendy Myers: And this is such a key thing because one of the biggest complaints people have after using a sauna is that they're tired. And I feel like, wait a second, aren’t I using this to detox so that I feel more energized and better? And, and I feel you know, in the past, I felt tired, definitely from time to time after doing a sauna. But I think it's so wonderful that in using this in a sauna, it not only helps you feel, feel better while you're doing a sauna and afterwards. But tell us about the, also the benefits of the toxin filtration that you get –
Eileen Durfee: Oh, yeah.
Wendy Myers: … in the air that is coming off of your body and sweat when that vaporizes into the air?
Eileen Durfee: Well, they've done studies where they've measured the sweat from people exercising versus people taking a sauna. And it's proven that when you get that parasympathetic sweat instead of, you know the fight or flight sweat, there's more toxins in the sweat. So, I mean, you're getting cadmium and mercury and just all these plastics and all this stuff coming out of you. And then you know, it gets humid in there, right but you continue breathing. Even people say when they're in a sauna, and it gets hot, it's difficult for me to breathe. Part of it is, they're re-inhaling all the stuff they just detoxed out into the air. It's like toxic, humidified sauna sweat.
Wendy Myers: Yeah.
Eileen Durfee: And so, the, the Breathe -
Wendy Myers: So, disgusting. But yet, no one thought about this. No one has thought about this. That's what I love about you. You think about all these little details that make all the difference in the world because as long as you're spending time in the sauna, you bought a sauna, and you're spending hours and hours, over weeks and months in the sauna, and you might as well maximize your time to get the best effects.
Eileen Durfee: Right, exactly. And you know, the Breathe Safe is just an amazing device that you can take anywhere with you. And one of the tips that I would say is, now when you buy a Breathe Safe, you get a brush. You know, most air purifiers, you have to buy and replace filters. But that's not the case with the Breathe Safe. With the Breathe Safe, it's super simple. You just remove the cover. And then there's a plate there that collects dust and you just take this brush, and you brush it, and you clean those little needles in there. And if you do that once a week, in less than a minute, then you keep it running at peak optimal performance. Because, you know, that's one thing I've been guilty of with my Breathe Safe, you know, because I have them. I actually have them in every room. And they just make such a big difference. And so, to get around once a week, even though it takes less than one minute, I get busy and I forget.
Well, I had this one Breathe Safe that my grandsons were playing around, and it got pushed back in the back, there was like, an eighth of an inch of dust just coating the whole thing. And it pitted the plate and the needles. And obviously, it wasn't making negative ions or oxygen because I had it so dirty. So, you know, my tip for the Breathe Safe is, you don't have to buy filters. But take this brush with just like a minute and keep it clean. And then when it's clean, it won't pit the plate. So, then you can have more years of, of life, you know from that air purifier.
Wendy Myers: Yeah. And that's another thing is, when I had a HEPA filter, I had other types of air filters. You know, if you don't replace that soon enough, there's all kinds of bacteria and molds and other stuff that get on in that filter, that then you're blowing back into your house.
Eileen Durfee: Yeah.
Wendy Myers: So, it's just, it's crazy. So, is there any other do's and don'ts about elf air filter – air filtration, or problems with other types of air filters that, that you could discuss?
Eileen Durfee: Well, one thing I'd like everybody to do is, if they have an HVAC system, they have a cold air return. It’s where you put your furnace filter. You know, depending on what kind of a furnace filter you buy, one of the most important things you can do is replace it monthly, or the, the kind that I buy is a little more expensive, and it's got a different pleat in it. And I replace those every three months. I actually have a reminder set on my phone. It's like time to change the furnace filters. It's time to buy my new Sonicare brush heads for my toothbrush, you know. It's just like I get it done. You know, and that will really make a huge difference. And that's, you know, super simple but, and then you know, your furnace won't be struggling. So, it'll consume less electricity.
I mean, so there's a lot of benefits to changing the furnace filter regularly. But you know, you talk to people. It's like, when did you change your furnace filter last? It’s like, they just, they're just not changing and I'm like, they should. And if you do use these room air purifiers, and I, I am like Wendy, I have a lot of them. I've bought all these different kinds of air purifiers. And you know, they all have filters, they need to be cleaned. And if you don't clean them then, or replace them when you should too, it's harder on the machines, and they'll prematurely you know, break down and those kinds of things.
Wendy Myers: What I love also about the Breathe Safe that it's portable, and you can put it near your body. You can carry it around with you everywhere, is that if you are, if you have asthma, you have breathing issues, you have chemical sensitivity. How can filtering your personal airspace help with that?
Eileen Durfee: Well, there's less reaction that goes on in the body when it's trying to fight something foreign that shouldn't be there. And then ionized air is much easier to breathe. So, the body can extract more of the oxygen that is in the air and make it usable. So, you know, it's just this inflammatory response when people are having these reactions in their body that can be minimized.
Wendy Myers: Yeah. And so like, for instance, I went to a conference recently. It was in the Florida and I was so bummed. I forgot my Breathe Safe. So, I'm staying at this hotel because in Florida, it's humid, it's hot. It's moldy. Of course, I go to the hotel, just knocked over by the mold smell and the carpet. And there's carpet in my room in this really old hotel, tons of mold. And I'm like, oh my God, I need my Breathe Safe. And I, I really was suffering. These four days, I was at this conference. But that's, you know, another use for it is, if you're going outside of the cocoon that it's your home that most of us are trying to create and you're going to a toxic office, or you're traveling a lot. This little portable air filter device can be really indispensable.
Eileen Durfee: I went to a trade show, in a town where my cousin lived. And they had water infiltration in their basement. And we’d had an extraordinary winter. And they, you know, remodeled it and everything. And the guest bedroom was in the basement. Soon as I hit the stairs, I can feel it in my lungs, the mold. They don't even notice it. I mean, she smoked cigarettes, and, but they just couldn't even smell it. Literally, I had this, my Breathe Safe on its battery pack. And I just laid it in the bed, you know, by my head. So, I could sleep. So, my lungs weren't closing up. And then I'd wake up in the middle of the night. I had obviously rolled over and I wasn't facing the Breathe Safe. And I've you know, repositioned it. But it's just like, wow, it was just so intense. So, now when I go to town, which I have, I just go get a hotel. Go visit but don't try to you know, stay in that house. I mean, there are so many people that are unaware of the exposure of what they're doing to their bodies when there's mold in the house.
Wendy Myers: Yeah, yeah. And it's, and it’s something that people are experiencing symptoms from severe fatigue, brain fog, health issues. And they go to their doctor and the doctors, it's, forget toxins. They're not thinking about mold, either. It's just they're not looking at mold, or heavy metals or chemicals. So, people are just not getting the answers in that regard.
Eileen Durfee: Well, there's, there’s, I read some statistics about what's called medically unexplained symptoms. There's over 13 million people in the United States with the medically unexplained symptoms. And I would say the first thing to check is, what are you breathing? What's you know, in your home outgassing? Are you doing air purification and address those issues. And I think so many people would get relief by taking that first step.
Wendy Myers: Yeah. Yeah, I agree. And so, you, so you've developed this little Breathe Safe, which is, which is so cute. It's really, the first time I'd seen like it was a tiny little personal air filter like this, because most of them are these big machines. And you know, if you have a whole house, you have to lug this thing from room to room to room and people get lazy and they don't do it. They just kind of have it on their bedroom, their living room. But what about the other rooms? And so, you came up with another ingenious device. Can you talk about the ionic refresher?
Eileen Durfee: Sure. Well, I went to visit my son, and he had all these Glade Air Wick plug in. It's not an air purifier, it's an air freshener. But it's covering up smells with the perfume that on the Health and Human Services website even lists ingredients as cancer causing. So, it is really convenient to just to be able to plug something in the wall. And so, I thought, Well, gee, what if I use the carbon fiber tip technology that I had in my lightbulbs in a little plugin for the wall. So, I did a design that has two carbon fiber tips that just plugs into any outlet and then it purifies things. I sent it off, did some lab testing and was very happy with the results. And so, we do have the ionic refresher and that’s simple where somebody could buy a package. We have a larger pack that we sell, that they could do their whole house for the cost of what one nice room air purifier would be and it's silent.
Wendy Myers: Yes.
Eileen Durfee: So, the magic with this technology is, there's a little bit of metal fibers in the carbon fiber tip. So, when you apply electricity to it, it actually makes negative ions more effective at mopping up other contaminants in the air. So, it is actually more powerful on some of the test results than the Breathe Safe. The Breathe Safe makes oxygen and this one doesn't. But it's just like so easy to use. I mean, everybody has a spare outlet somewhere in a room that they could put this in.
Wendy Myers: Yeah.
Eileen Durfee: And it does make a huge difference. Like people that live in condominiums. How about if your neighbor smokes. How many? I've gotten lots of calls from people where their neighbors smoke, and they just can't get rid of the smell. And they really like want to sell their condominium. I actually have a lab test with the ionic refresher in a chamber with cigarettes. And in seconds, you can just see the smoke disappear. It’s phenomenal and it works really well. And it's unlike a lot of the other plug-in air purifiers. I gave the one example of the Glade Air Wick. But there are also other little plugin air purifiers that actually use ozone. So, breathing ozone, above 0.02 part per million is something that irritates the lungs, competes with the oxygen receptors. It's something that we don't want to do. And so, does it have a straight plug in ozone air purifier, I wouldn't recommend it. I did have this one tested for ozone and it makes 0.02 part-per million. So, it's totally safe. So you still besides the negative ions and the carbon fiber tip technology, you are getting a little freshening/cleansing effect but with safe levels of ozone.
Wendy Myers: Yeah, and this is, these are so amazing, because I highly recommend people get like a pack of six or a pack of 12. And just plug one into every single room in your home and forget it. And you will have fresh air, negative ions, oxygen, a tiny little bit of ozone that can kill mold and do you know other positive things but not enough to irritate your lung or displace oxygen in your body. And it's just amazing because like, for me, I've always had the big, you know, air filters and had to go from room to room to room and then you have to carry it around and no one's going to do that. They're not going to have their air filter in the room for two hours and then take it downstairs for two hours and put it in the garage for two hours or. And I would just use it when I have like a bad smell or like when outside all the chemicals are being released into the air and use it to clean up my bedroom. So, I'm, you know because I am fearful of the, the toxins being released into the air and breathing that in. But this is such a more practical solution where every single room in your home can benefit and have clean, healthy air.
