THE ALLERGY TEST

Allergies occur when the body’s immune system responds to a substance it considers an “invader”. Substances that provoke the immune system into an allergic response are known as allergens. What might trigger a life threatening allergies response in one person might not cause any response in another person.
Allergens enter the body either through ingestion, inhalation, or contact with the skin or mucous membranes. Mild allergy symptoms include itchy, dry, red, or watery eyes, a runny nose, scratchy throat, and rashes. More severe symptoms include swelling of the throat, wheezing, and difficulty breathing.
Anyone experiencing the Signs & Symptoms described above on a regular, or seasonal, basis. Allergies can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, or socioeconomic status. They are caused by a combination of both genetic and environmental influences. Specific allergies are not inherited but the chances of having allergies are greatly increased if an immediate family member has allergies. Undiagnosed allergies can cause long-term health problems.

ALLERGY IMMUNOTHERAPY

Immunotherapy is a treatment directed at decreasing your sensitivity to certain allergens. These particular allergens are identified with allergy testing. Specific amounts of natural allergen extracts are introduced into the body which help to produce antibodies that block allergic symptoms over time. Immunotherapy helps your body build up its natural resistance to the effects of tree, grass, and weed pollen, dust mites, mold spores, and animal dander. It is also the only proven medical treatment available that strengthens the immune system to provide lasting relief and prevent new allergies and asthma. A full course of immunotherapy can lead to long-term relief of your allergy symptoms even after the therapy has stopped. It contains no medication.
Your lab results are color coded and easy to read. If you are positive for 3-5 allergens, you are a mild candidate for immunotherapy treatment. 6-8 you will greatly benefit from personalized immunotherapy drops. 9 or more you are strongly encouraged to start on a personalized treatment plan. Patients typically start seeing positive results within months 2-4 and gradually experience less allergic symptoms over the course of the treatment.
