“We began this adventure by way of necessity, Joyce had a real breathing problem. We tried everything,” says Richard Taylor, referring to his wife Joyce. Even as a child, Joyce always experienced difficulty breathing. No matter what treatment was undertaken, nothing made a difference.

Using true medical-grade HEPA filtration, surrounded with activated carbon, Taylor created a filter that blocked environmental particulate contamination and chemical toxicity.
