Allergy Testing & Immunotherapy
Instead of just a short-term fix for your allergy symptoms, wouldn’t you rather eliminate the cause of your allergies?
Allergies occur when your body perceives dust, molds, pet hair or pollens as threats, and rallies its defenses against them. Your body’s reactions include sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, skin rashes, sinus problems, wheezing, asthma and much more. Prescription and over-the-counter allergy medications try to stop these symptoms so you feel temporarily better. They do nothing to relieve the cause of your allergies, which is why your misery returns season after season.
There is a long-term allergy solution!
lmmunotherapy desensitizes your body to these normally harmless environmental particles called antigens. Very small doses are introduced to your system via serum. As treatment progresses, the concentration of antigens in the serum increases so your immune system learns to ignore them, making you a much happier person during allergy season!
There are two types of immunotherapy: shots and sublingual (under the tongue) drops. Both are effective. Shots have been used in the U.S. for decades, but require 1-2 visits to the doctor's officer per week.
Easy and painless is the way to go!
Sublingual immunotherapy has been popular throughout the world for over 60 years. In the comfort of your home, you simply place a few drops of serum (the same serum used in allergy shots) under your tongue every day. You only need to visit your healthcare provider every 12 weeks for a refill and a quick follow-up.
By your first follow-up, you’ll likely notice a marked improvement. Within a few months, you should realize a significant reduction in the need for allergy medications. And, in four years, if you’re like most patients, your environmental allergies will go into remission!
Your path to freedom from allergies starts with a simple, quick test.
If you’ve had, or heard about, allergy tests in the past, you know they included a painful series of shots in the back or arms, then a long wait as your skin turned red, itchy and uncomfortable. No longer. Now, after your healthcare provider reviews your medical history and checks your lungs, you’ll receive a pain-free skin test* that will reveal your allergies. Skin testing consists of 80 antigens including trees, grasses, weeds, epidermals, molds and indoor perennials. Allergy testing can be done in our office and takes about 30 minutes to complete. You’ll also find out if immunotherapy is the right solution for you. If so, you can immediately begin to put your allergies behind you!
