Allergy Testing and Sublingual Immunotherapy
About Allergy Drops
Less than five percent of U.S. allergy sufferers receive immunotherapy – the only treatment that treats the root cause of allergic disease. The other 95% take medications to temporarily reduce symptoms, try to avoid their allergens, or just continue to suffer.
In the past, most immunotherapy was provided through allergy shots. Today, sublingual immunotherapy, or allergy drops, are also offered as a safe, convenient way to treat the cause of your allergies and help you build long-term tolerance to the things that once made you miserable
There are many advantages patients find with custom allergy drops:
• Reduced time spent on doctor visits
• The convenience of taking immunotherapy at home or on the go
• The potential to treat the broadest range of allergic patients and conditions
• Reduced need for allergy medications long-term
Allergy drop treatment using the La Crosse Method Protocol is:
• Tailored to each patient’s unique allergy fingerprint – level of sensitivity and specific allergens
• Versatile for almost all allergy sufferers, from those with seasonal and environmental allergies, to those with more complex allergies such as mold and food allergies or associated allergic conditions like asthma. Are you the right candidate for allergy drop treatment?
Much like allergy shots, allergy drops gradually help build the body’s tolerance to an allergen. Over time, the allergy results in fewer symptoms and medication needs and can change the underlying allergic disease. For those who suffer from hay fever or allergies to things like dust mites, pollens, pet dander, and molds, sublingual immunotherapy for inhalant allergies can help build a tolerance to these substances. Sublingual immunotherapy food allergy treatment is available to help those who experience issues with food allergies build a tolerance to offending foods, such as peanut allergy, and reduce the risk of severe reactions in case of accidental food exposure. For those who have strong reactions to seasonal allergies, including grass, trees including mountain cedar (cedar fever,) and ragweed, pre-seasonal allergy drops begun before the allergy season can lessen reactions during pollen season and help long-term tolerance. Some allergy sufferers may be considering sublingual tablets for seasonal allergens, but there are some significant differences between La Crosse Method custom sublingual immunotherapy and sublingual tablets.
