On a cold day in February 2012, Deanna Devaney of Roslindale, Mass., was sick and tired of being sick and tired. Her years of struggling with asthma filled her world with too many emergency department visits, respiratory-tract infections and a medicine cabinet full of antibiotics, corticosteroids, rescue inhalers and over-the-counter medications.
Now her doctor was suggesting a new asthma treatment plan. She would have to get rid of her dogs and move out of her new apartment. Devaney was overwhelmed. The former half-marathon runner was often struggling just to breathe. But giving up her new apartment and her beloved pets?
“At that point, I couldn’t run, I was overweight, depressed, I couldn’t breathe … and now I had to move and get rid of my pets!” says Devaney. “Well, I came home and spent the rest of that day sobbing. Then, the next morning, I picked myself up and began researching like crazy. That’s when I called IQAir.”
Even after reading the third-party reviews of IQAir’s HyperHEPA technology and the hundreds of testimonials online from asthma sufferers who found relief with the HealthPro Plus, Devaney was skeptical. Over the years she purchased plenty of so-called “HEPA” air purifiers that never made a difference.
“I wish I didn’t waste so much money and time – it was years – following bad advice regarding HEPA filters which did nothing,” says Devaney. “This time, I decided to try the air purifier that others said actually worked for them.”
When it arrived, she immediately unpacked her new IQAir HealthPro Plus and turned the fan up to speed 6. Within minutes she could feel the difference.
“I honestly started crying just after getting it and realizing it was working,” she says. “I could feel the difference in my breathing almost immediately. Since that day, I’ve been able to slowly taper down my meds, keep my pets (whom I LOVE) and keep that new apartment I had just moved into. My asthma has improved so much I’ve started running again.” In fact, she is already planning her next half-marathon.
“I guess you can see I’m a little passionate about my HealthPro Plus,” says Devaney. “The physical and emotional benefits I’ve received from my IQAir system are worth their weight in gold. Thank you IQAir.”
