In some regions such as Southern California, allergy season happens year-round. Typically, when winds blow off the ocean, there is very little pollen in the air. But when Santa Ana wind conditions occur, Southern California residents are hit with allergens from as far away as Nevada and Arizona. In addition, after it rains, the trees, winds and grasses in the canyons “wake up” and send out pollen clouds.
And because California does not have four distinct seasons, allergens are in the air constantly – which worsens nasal allergies, and triggers chronic drainage and congestion, making allergy sufferers more vulnerable to colds and sinus infections.
In Northern California – this year, in particular, higher-than-average rainfall levels have spurred more plants to grow, thus releasing more pollen into the air. Researchers at Harvard and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, estimated that grass pollen, the scourge of many Bay Area allergy sufferers, will increase by up to 200%.
The effects of climate change have also pushed temperatures up, thereby increasing allergy season length and its intensity3.
Additionally, in many parts of the U.S., house dust mites are seasonal, requiring humidity to reproduce. But in Southern California, they can exist year-round due to the humidity of the rainy season and homes that are not completely weather-tight. The months between October and March are particularly troublesome for Southern California residents who are sensitive to dust mites2.
We have dedicated ourselves to developing a microcurrent therapy solution for allergy-related sinus pain as well as other chronic diseases and conditions. Tivic Health harnesses the power of neuromodulation to empower people to improve their health and quality of life, living with less allergy sinus pain!
In the San Francisco Bay Area, increased pollen counts due to higher-than-average rainfall this year have made allergies much more difficult to manage. For some allergy sufferers, antihistamines alone are no longer adequate enough to treat their symptoms.
And while California allergy sufferers can limit exposure to their triggers, or plan more indoor activities, these can significantly impact their quality of life.
ClearUP® Sinus Pain Relief is the first of its kind to utilize advanced microcurrent technology to specifically treat sinus pain without the use of chemical or drugs, e.g. a pill or spray. This cutting-edge treatment option is designed to provide relief for adults 18 years or older with frustrating allergy-related sinus pain.
See the ClearUP® difference! ClearUP® is the latest in a wave of drug-free medicine offered through the use of neuromodulation to effectively treat chronic conditions. Bioelectronics like these are emerging as a modern solution as they are chemical-free and highly effective. This simple, handheld device uses a gentle microcurrent waveform to stimulate the nerves underlying the cheek, nose, and brow bone to relieve sinus pain.
This device is truly a must for anyone in California who wants to better manage their allergy-related sinus pain!
With an ergonomic design and portable capability, users can take it to work, use it at home, or use it while traveling. A single treatment takes 5 minutes and can last for up to 6 hours. ClearUP® can be used as needed, up to 4 times a day, with 74% of clinical study subjects reporting they experienced sinus pain relief after only 1 5-minute treatment.
ClearUP® is a safe, effective, and clinically proven treatment option for sufferers of allergy sinus pain throughout California. Users can be confident in this product as it is chemical-free and has no chemical side effects. See the latest research and news on Tivic Health and our new and easy-to-use home device designed for temporary relief of sinus pain from allergic rhinitis.
Allergists and doctors across California have praised ClearUP® Sinus Pain Relief for providing such an effective, non-invasive treatment option for patients.
Whether you suffer from sinus pain related to higher pollen counts and humidity changes in Northern and Southern California, or from dust and dander, our technology can help! ClearUP® is the first of its kind and a completely new way to find relief from allergies without the use of drugs or chemicals.
In addition to addressing sinus pain, Tivic Health is also exploring the impact of this technology for other indications including the potential treatment of migraines, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and more conditions. Keep an eye out for our continued efforts to provide relief through easy-to-use, at-home products like ClearUP®!
