Wouldn’t it be great if they would just go away? Wouldn’t it be better if the treatment was simple and could be done at home? Sublingual immunotherapy involves custom formulas based on your individual allergies to things like dust, mold, grasses, trees, weeds, or pets . It’s a liquid under the tongue and is based on the same principle as allergy shots with no pain and no repeated trips to the office. We do a blood test, I formulate the mixture based on your results, and then you take it at home. The materials are the same that are used for allergy shots, just in oral doses, and can be used with adults or children. The dose is slowly increased over time and is designed to reduce or eliminate your allergy or asthma symptoms. Sublingual immunotherapy has been studied and found to be extremely safe. Imagine freeing yourself or your children from dependence on allergy medications!
