Vaccine for Dust Mite Allergies Developed

People who suffer from allergies to dust mites know that there is little to no relief during the worst times of year. The body reacts to the foreign substance and can cause difficulty breathing in about 45 percent of those who suffer from asthma.

Much of the treatments are temporary, such as using an inhaler or daily allergy medications, and others are pure misery. The patient is exposed to the source of irritant over an extended period of time in the hopes of building up tolerance, but there is no guarantee.

This new vaccine uses a booster to alter the inflammatory response to the allergens. For more on the vaccine and how it works, continue reading here.

September Asthma Survival

Asthma rates for children reach their peak in mid-September, according to experts’ studies. Children return to school and are exposed to new viruses and bacteria that can worsen asthma symptoms.

Another factor that can add to the problem is the fall allergen, ragweed. The switch of environments – from outdoors to indoor – and the change in temperature also may cause asthma symptoms to flare up.

This month, take greater care in preventing as much asthma aggravates as possible. Check to make sure inhalers and medications are up to date. Look into buying an air purification system to ensure clean air in your home environment. Talk to your doctor about avoiding asthma triggers and what to do when your child has an attack. You could never be too prepared for the threat of your child’s asthma.

Teeter Hang Ups EP-960 vs. Contour L5 Inversion Table Comparison

Teeter Hang Ups EP-960

We have been fielding questions about the differences between the Teeter EP-960 and Contour L5 Inversion tables lately, and thought we would publish a quick comparison between the two.


The Contour L5 is sold through retailers whose sales are primarily local (brick & mortar), while the EP-960 is sold through online and offline retailers.  It is not uncommon for B&M retailers to have access to exclusives.  This helps them compete against online merchants who frequently have better pricing due to their low overhead.  And with heavier items, such as an inversion table that weighs around 70 pounds, many consumers would prefer to have it delivered to their door rather than have to pick it up (especially for those with back pain).  Keep in mind while reading that Better Health Innovations carries the EP-960, but not the Contour L5.

Feature Comparison

The two inversion tables share the same bed design, foot clamping, and tether, which are critical parts of an inversion table.  So, back and foot comfort will be identical on either table.  In addition, operation of both tables is identical.

The L5 has a unique mechanism where the rotational speed (basically an adjustment for the center of gravity) of the table can be set with a dial.  On the EP-960, this must be set by removing the bed from the frame.  While this may seem important, the rotational speed setting is typically only set twice during the life of the table.  Having dealt with thousands of inversion table customers, and having used inversion tables ourselves, we have found that this is set once when the table is set up and maybe one more time once the user gets used to inversion (by speeding up the rotational adjustment).

The L5 sports a different frame design with a more curved look.  We will leave it up to you on the attractiveness of the table vs. the EP-960.  We have not had experience folding the L5, and we are not sure if the leg design would effect storage.  The EP-960 folds up very well.  Both tables accept the accessories that came out for the 60 series earlier this year.

Warranty is the same for both tables – 5 years on everything.  I am absolutely sure that the L5 has comparable quality to the EP-960 and other Teeter inversion tables.  Teeter doesn’t mess around with quality, and I have never seen a poorly design table from them.  Both tables carry the UL Mark and have passed UL certification testing.

Looking at the manual for the L5, assembly appears to be pretty much the same with the same components being pre-assembled (such as the frame and mainshaft)

Strangely, I cannot find any statements for money back if the table does not work for you.  With the EP series, Teeter offers a 30 day money back, allowing you to use the table for that period and return it used for a full refund.  On a side note, at Better Health Innovations, we extended that to 90 days, which I don’t believe anyone else is doing.  90 Days really gives you time to set up the table and give it a fair try.


Whether the rotation adjustment improvement and the leg design warrants a price tag $100 to $179 higher than the EP-960 is debatable.  Currently (subject to change with time), the EP-960 price is $399 at, which includes a 110% price guarantee.  Advertisements for the L5 indicate a $499 to $579 price tag.  If money were no object, you may consider it,  but even so, with the L5 it appears there is not a trial period and the BHI Inversion Coaching Program is not available.  From that perspective, you are actually getting less value for more money.   Based on this, I very much recommend the EP-960.

Tyent Under Counter Water Ionizers Video

Tyent Under Counter Water Ionizers Video

We tend to get a few questions about what the base unit of the Tyent Under Counter water ionizers look like. In this video, I go demonstrate the looks of the processing unit that goes under you sink as well as the head unit that goes above. Installation is also discussed briefly. The unit used in the video is a Tyent UCE-11 (the new eleven plate water ionizer), but the Tyent UCE-9000T has the same configuration and looks.
