Natural Treatment Offers Long-Term Relief from Allergic Reactions
All you have to do is look around you…the light green or yellow dusting you see on just about everything tells you that the allergy season is upon us. There’s good news, though—you don’t have to spend the rest of your life battling allergies every spring. With allergy immunotherapy, you can get relief that will potentially last a lifetime.
What Is Allergy Immunotherapy?
Allergy immunotherapy is a totally natural approach to allergy relief. The treatment regimen involves the administration of high potency extracts from common allergy sources, given either orally (in drops) or by injection. These extracts change how your systems reacts to allergic triggers, retraining your immune system to minimize the impact of those allergens.
How Long Is Does the Therapy Last?
The length of treatment varies from patient to patient, based on the nature and severity of your allergies. Allergy immunotherapy can permanently change your body’s allergic responses, but accomplishing that objective can take time. With some patients, there can be relief within a few months, but other may need to take the drops or have injections for three to five years. Most patients, though, are able to stop taking allergy-masking medications within six months. Once you’ve qualified for and completed the testing, we’ll provide you with the required serums, so that they can be administered at home. The drops are taken under your tongue and the injections are given with an epi pen, which we will prescribe for you.
How Will I Know If I Can Benefit from Allergy Immunotherapy?
We have a test that we can administer in our offices to determine whether you have a wide range of allergies. Our test, which can be completed in a half an hour, will tell us your responses to more than 100 common allergens.
How Much Will It Cost Me for Allergy Immunotherapy?
The cost for each patient varies, based on the number of allergies for which you’ll be treated. Most insurance companies provide some level of reimbursement for allergy immunotherapy. When you work with us, we’ll contact your insurer to confirm your benefits. We’ll also give you a quote for the full program before we commence treatment.
