What are Allergies?
Allergies are the symptoms experienced by the body when the immune system raises its defenses to a foreign particle that is usually harmless to other people. These foreign particles that the immune system attacks are called allergens.
The immune system mistakes these allergens as harmful invaders and triggers an immune response to fight off the particles. This immune response can range in severity, from mild to severe.
Once your allergens are known, immunotherapy can help your body desensitize to the allergen. AllerFocus helps to identify and treat the body’s symptoms and responses to these particles.
Immunotherapy for Long-Term Allergy Relief
Those seeking an alternative to allergy medicine and allergy pills should investigate relief through immunotherapy. After testing and understanding what your allergens are, our doctors recommend allergy immunotherapy. Immunotherapy can offer long-term relief to known allergens.
Immunotherapy can be administered by sublingual drops (that go under your tongue) and/or by subcutaneous shots. You and your doctor will discuss what treatment is right for you.
Immunotherapy is an effective treatment against the following airborne allergens:
Immunotherapy works by introducing the body to a tiny amount of the known allergen. Gradually, the dose increases until the body no longer experience symptoms to the allergen.
This process typically begins working within 4 to 6 months, and many of our patients have found great success with our treatments.
