Allergy Immunotherapy

All-natural long-term allergy treatment

Allergies are caused by the body’s immune system trying to ward off false threats, such as pollens, dust, mold, pet dander, insects, etc.. The symptoms of your system’s attacking these antigens include sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, congestion and sinus problems, coughing, asthma, rashes and other reactions. The holistic approach, which involves subjecting the body to tiny doses of the allergens until the immune system stops reacting to them, has been used for more than 60 years with great success, but the method of administration has made the cure difficult for most people to stick with. Traditionally, the introduction of antigens into the body has been through a course of painful injections 1-2 times a week in a doctor’s office. This process is uncomfortable, cumbersome, time-consuming and can cost a lot in medical insurance co-payments. Because of the health risks involved, this type of immunotherapy hasn’t been available to young children or infants, severe asthmatics, those with a history of anaphylaxis or people on beta-blockers.

Thanks to recent advances in allergy treatment, there is now a way to benefit from immunotherapy through allergy drops. Taken daily from the comfort of home via drops under the tongue, this revolutionary delivery system makes it possible for nearly everyone to benefit from immunotherapy. Like allergy shots, this therapy is totally natural, drug-free and works by reconditioning the immune system not to overreact to allergens. Because it takes time for the body to adapt, relief may take 3-4 months to begin being noticeable. Unlike shots, however, drops are painless and require a trip to your doctor’s office only once every 12 weeks to monitor your progress. Drops also come with less risk than shots – hives and anaphylaxis are extremely rare. Because they are taken from home, drops are easy to continue using for the recommended term of 4 years, after which time most patients report that their allergies are gone. So instead of masking symptoms like drugs do, immunotherapy can actually rid people of allergies.
