Allergies occur when the immune system overreacts to harmless substances like pollen, molds and dander. Repeated exposure to allergens will lead to inflammation, which can cause both immediate symptoms as well as chronic problems.
Allergy Immunotherapy changes how your immune system responds to allergic triggers, leading to long-term tolerance and a greatly reduced need for symptom relieving medication.
When administered over time at an appropriate dose, it is the only treatment that has the potential to eliminate your symptoms for life.
Allergy Immunotherapy can be administered as traditional allergy shots or as sublingual allergy drops. Both options require a build-up phase that starts at a safe starting concentration of allergen. The goal is to reach the maintenance phase of treatment where a therapeutic dose for each allergen is achieved.
