Living in an area where a wildfire has burned through or near is extremely difficult. Especially, for those with other health issue's. Many of us here near Redding CA are now suffering with sinus pain and breathing difficulties. A caring friend sent me a link to an article on How to Detox After a Wildfire." Below is a list taken from that Article

Detoxing after smoke exposure is essential to your long-term and short term health. Detox solutions can include: 

  1. Drinking LOTS of Water
  2. Drinking Hot Liquids
  3. Using a Saline Nasal Spray
  4. Rinsing Your Sinuses with a Neti Pot
  5. Breathing in Steam with Thyme
  6. Receiving a Vitamin Rich IV Drip
  7. Loading Your Diet with Ginger
  8. Increasing Your Vitamin C Intake
  9. Upping Your Glutathione Levels

Yes, I agree. It is a very sad situation. So many people have lost their homes and another person has died bringing the total up 7. The latest person that dies was a working for PG&E. He was only 21 years old. I have just found out that he was the cousin of my Nephew's wife Brittney. He was working on power lines to restore power to the city of Redding.Sad

How long after the fire is extinguished does it spread hazardous particles?

#4 That is a good question. I would think that if the fire is out there isn't as much of a spread as when it is actually burning. There have been a couple of really big wildfires burning here for the past few weeks and there is still so much smoke that the particulate matter count is really high making for a very unhealthy situation.
